It was the first or second day of school the first year I was teaching 8th grade when “Bradley” tried to blow the ceiling off the classroom with what could have been the world’s loudest and longest fart.
I used to think only Banana Republics prosecuted and imprisoned politicians who lost.
But we need to make an exception for the Orange Republican.
No matter what happens tonight on election night, it’s just the beginning.
I came out of the closet carrying a fairly new, perfectly good hat. But I will never wear that shit again.
When Trump got the Covid, way too many fucking people “wished” him well.
No good deed goes unpunished. No well-intentioned wish doesn’t fuck up the universe — again.
My whole life I’ve been told how fair I am — fair skinned that is.
Now that shit is unacceptable and the PC police have been attacking “fair” skin for being unfair.
Michelle Obama said she has “low-grade depression” due to covid-19. Who the fuck doesn’t? But it got me thinking — if even men get postpartum depression what the hell happens to every first family when the POTUS high is over.
It’s a tragedy every time a police officer is injured or killed. But it shouldn’t be an excuse for shooting first and asking questions later.
Every year in the United States about 100 cops are killed in the line of duty. Half are accidents, the other half is murder. Cops kill about 1000 people a year. About 25 times more than people kills cops.
I like cops. I once tried to help control a riot — we needed the cops to restore order. I will forever be grateful for their presence that day. My father wrote a book on the history of modern police. (Sorry it’s out of print).
But cops and the entire criminal justice system need to change.
Covid-19 has forced us to replace sports with documentaries about sports. Kills time, but fucks up the betting.
ESPN played “The Last Dance”, Michael Jordan’s ode to himself, and 30 for 30’s series on Lance Armstrong practically back-to-back.
I was a little fat social outcast. Who knew I would grow up to be The Man.
The democrats cried “fascist” like the boy who cried “wolf” and it sucked all the power out of the word. I thought it was stupid at the time, and I still do.
With this pandemic, it’s morning zoom and night.
By that I mean I’m lucky enough to be on non-stop conference calls with Zoom — the best of the fucked-up softwares that make every virtual meeting feel like it’s taking place in a busy bus terminal.
Let me tell you what will scare the fuck out of anyone with a brain and a sense of history — a little teeny, tiny book my father gave all his children when Trump was elected.
I must confess and probably apologize… I’m a body-size bigot.
