I, for one, am very eager to hear Melania speak this week

I'm always up for hearing a Michelle Obama speech!

When they did the roll call of states tonight,...

...the delegate count for Maine was given by Craig Hickman, my wife's and my state representative. Even more important than that, he is also our friend, and IMHO, a great man.

Needless to say, tonight I am very proud of my friend!

My sister passed on in February of 1996.

I don't remember exactly What I was doing the day of her death.

I DO know God damned f**king well that I wasn't golfing

I love my sister. Dolt45 loves himself. He has no idea of exactly how cynical he is by doing this. Of course, Donald Trump is the most cynical criminal to ever be president. He makes a genuine son of a bitch rat bastard like Tricky Dickie look like Mother Teresa. He is certainly...

Another quick Kamala Harris comment

Even after a day and a half, my heart continues to be FULL!

I am so damned proud of both of them!

Biden/Harris 2020!


August 12, 2020

I was pulling for Val Demings and I say HURRAY for Kamela Harris!

She is vastly superior to Dolt45 ass kisser Mike Pence.

I will proudly and happily support and vote for the Biden/Harris ticket.

Dolt45 wants to give his acceptance speech from the Gettysburg battlefield?

All I can say is malignantly cynical and completely obscene.

Speaking as a life long comic book/superhero nerd,...

...I have to say that tonight's first episode of "Stargirl" was pretty danged good. I'd been looking forward to it and I was hoping/anticipating for it to be good. Stargirl is also one of my favorite lower case supers, but I'll say that it exceeded my expectations. I look forward to future episodes.

That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that. Thanks for reading.

I've completed my family's Census.

Have you?

I've decided that Donald Trump really IS a great POTUS!

April Fools!

Donald Trump is an idiot and an ass hat.

I reached a decision today to which the Covid 19 only partially contributed.

I'm going to be 65 in mid June. I'm overweight, diabetic and have high blood pressure, all of them managed by medicine and not acting like an idiot. I also have been in recovery from alcoholism since 1/14/90.

I started collecting my Social Security at 62. For the past couple of years I've been a substitute teacher a couple of day a week. Obviously there hasn't been any subbing for the past few weeks. I just decided today (much to my wife's relief) that I am fully retired. My wife earns a good living in a job she loves, I get a decent SSDI payment every month. Nobody is going to look at our bank account and mistake us for the Romneys, but we'll be ok.

I had been planning on subbing for a couple of years more, but today I just asked myself "why?"

I couldn't give myself a decent answer, and so now it's time. My mom lived until almost 85. My father until almost 94. My sister will be 76 on her next birthday. Given family history I should be around for a while. There are a lot of things I can do to keep myself occupied and I intend to do them.

I'm very at peace and relaxed with this decision, so it's final.

Thank you for allowing me to share.

Of course, as always, Donald Trump is an idiot and an ass hat.
