About Me

I'm an old professor, having taught at the university level in Louisiana for over 30 years. I've written 4 chapbooks and 5 full-sized books (all listed as poetrythough many include other genres as well), including _Sheer Indefinite: Selected Poems, 1991-2012 (Univ. of New Orleans Press, 2012). I've also written a 500+ page bibliography of three contemporary poets: Robert Creeley, Ed Dorn, and Robert Duncan. My first vote for President of the United States was for Dick Gregory in 1968 (Bowling Green, Ohio). Favorite quote: "It's easy to be an idealist if you don't have to mind the evidence, but no one said it was supposed to be easy" (Richard LaPauvre).

Our Surrealist-in-Chief!

A title worthy the Donald?

Trump's actions against the C.I.A indicate that it is posed to discover his criminal activity.

Why is Trump so hostile to the intel community? Why is he constantly and vehemently attacking what will be one of his most important assets? And this morning we hear that he planning to restructure them? Why? Simply because the story of Russian hacking tarnishes his "victory"?


It's because when the C.I.A. discovers something terrible about Trump, he can say their discoveries and revelations are the result of revenge.

It's likely as simple as that. "Kill" the messenger before he delivers the message.


Thus did speculation visit me this morning.

Trump's stance against the intel community tells me they are probably intestigating him and

that there is likely something big to hide. So big that he will alienate the intelligence community by denigrating them, making the public believe they are usually wrong and therefore can't indite him on whatever charges might apply.

This also implies that these charges will be known publicly since he is readying his defense now by undercutting the intel community's credibility.

After all, he's spending lot of political capital on this issue, one which is not likely to come out well for the-Trumpster-in-waiting.

Q. Why is Trump casting aspersions on the intel community? A. To attack the messenger. Q. Why?

A. Because when they later find and report anything unfavorable about his past or present, he can maintain he knew they were wrong all along and their new discoveries d*mn near confirm it.

Q. What might they find that would be so damaging to him that he would denigrate one of the nation's most important assets, an intelligence gathering-and-analysis community made up of seventeen agencies and costing billions of dollars a year?

A. Perhaps they will discover his camp colluded with the Russians by directing their hacking-targets and negotiating a third-party transfer to Assange, or find out that his own financial state is propped up by Russian banks and oligarchs, or . . . whatever.

Q. Where's the exit?


In this manner did speculation unfold for me this morning.

"And to preserve our national perks, I nominate . . ." . . .Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("Make mine ultra-super-dooper sized") Trump is saying: "To be honest, I'm thinking of Sarah Palin as Secretary of the Interior, . . . because she's so deep."

"The First Amendment is for whiners!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald (gold plated hair dryer) Trump is saying: "Of course I believe in the First Amendment, but when someone criticizes this great man at a public theater, somebody has to stop that kind of behavior. . . . Don't get me wrong, there's no greater champion of giving people the right to say what they want. . . . Just not in public."


Above CAPTION based on the following DU posting by Nolabear:


"Kangaroos need courts, too!" . . . Please come CAPTIOPN Jeff Sessions!!!

Jeff ("The Klan has always fought for civil rights") Sessions is saying: "When I put my hand on the Bible and swear to uphold the laws of the United States of America, that really means something very personal to me. Like the first day on my paper route. Or when my Mary said "I do." Or like entering an all-whites country club on a early spring day. . . . Yes, very, very personal."

After all, what do you have to lose? . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("And why not rent out the Washington Mall?") Trump is saying: "Listen, we're going to get smart. Real smart. Like I said during the campaign, what's so wrong about teaming up with Russia to make this a better world? . . . And in keeping with that spirit, I've asked many of the nation's top lobbyists to help me drain the swamp! . . . It's going to be great, you'll see!"
