Michael Moore is being chastised by right wingnut America over his tweet. Let’s rewind this moment for a second and reread that first sentence. The right, the very people who spent four years, accepting the hateful, vile tweets, sometimes a dozen a day, from Trump, are upset over a tweet and demand an apology.
These same people, who still see nothing wrong with the president’s actions on January 6th, are now furious over a tweet that brilliantly captures the sad irony of our American experiment. I don’t doubt their faux rage is because deep down inside, they are cringing. …
Last year, I read an article about the best places to raise a family. It wasn’t by chance that the article came across my news feed. I was looking for the best place to move my family.
Stuck in Russia since February 2020 because of the pandemic, I watched in embarrassment as my beloved homeland, the US, was being disrupted by the demonstrations of anti-maskers — the “it’s my right” lunacy.
Feeling as if life had suddenly been submerged, and I was in the deep-end of a pool looking up at faces staring down at me, I let my internet…
My friend, a cop with over twenty-seven years on the job, told me the other day on a Zoom call, “Dude, I know you won’t agree but I don’t really think this was Trump supporters. There is a lot of talk that it was the Antifa guys who got it all started. Then, the whole crowd-thinking thing kicked in, you know, and people just reacted.”
Before I could speak to his words, I had to think of little sheep quietly moving about aimlessly in a post-rain field in the Scottish back country — this is my go-to when I feel…
Historians will be pondering for years, how did the phenomenon of Donald Trump happen in the United States. Many will look to the end of the actual years of Trump, and at the most extreme elements of his following, and say it was all based on racism. Others will look at the incongruity of the support evangelicals gave to a man who openly bragged about physically dominating women he wanted to be intimate with — whether they wanted it or not.
Trying to understand Trump cannot rely solely on the Trump years; rather, we need to understand what happened over…
There has been a lot of talk about the increasingly large role that warehouses are playing in the context of the American workforce. As the decline of traditional, or brick & mortar, retail accelerates because of the coronavirus, the Amazon fulfillment centers (FCs) have come under fire for being super spreader work environments.
Without a doubt, I will say that they are spreading Covid-19 but not because they want; but because they can’t help themselves. Let’s take a closer look.
While my background as a c-level executive in leading retail and e-commerce companies enables me to offer an educated opinion…
Yep, you might need to take some Dramamine to deal with this incident of head-spinning hypocrisy. Fox News actually lacks any sense of journalistic self in its accusation that Biden interfered with the jury’s ability to come to a verdict in the Derek Chauvin murder trial.
First of all, because they are sequestered the jury would never have heard the president’s words. Secondly, how dare Fox be so transparent in their bias for supporting the racist Christian nationalists against the interests of law and order in the US? Yes, I know that my question here pushes all the limits of…
And, here we go again. I am playing right in his hands but I can’t stop myself — it has all become about Tucker recently.
Tucker Carlson ranted rudely at a guest recently. Ed Gavin worked for twenty-one years as a New York City deputy and corrections officer. Gavin, clearly inexperienced in television free-for-alls, was verbally abused by Carlson because, as a sane and patriotic American, Gavin expressed an opinion that didn’t fit with Carlson’s (Fox’s) racist narrative.
Here’s my prediction: Donald Trump won’t run for president in 2024.
Beginning the game in 1988, Trump spent most of the 2000’s flirting with the idea of running. Coyly telling people he was going to run, he tantalized them with what “could be” if only the “amazingly successful businessman” ran. Each time, after being courted by an assortment of influential Republicans, he would bail at the last minute. The standard excuse was that his business empire called.
The truth was, Trump was deathly afraid of losing. While it might have seemed he was an empty shell of a man, he…
60% of Republicans today believe in the Big Lie. Senator Ron Johnson says that the insurrectionists were not Trump supporters and that the day’s events don’t amount to an armed insurrection at all.
A Tale about Spring Time in St. Petersburg, Russia
Surfing across a warming air, a certain kind of brazenness grips me…could it be?
The contours of the long, and rather true to its nature, winter splinter and dazzle as if all has become a kaleidoscope
I feel it, I smell it, a longingness to taste it distracts me for the moment
Voices have become more confident, dogs smile and tram bells seem more jittery
It is Springtime in St. Petersburg again
Pockets of snow forgotten in courtyard shadows melt reluctantly
Trees, convinced it has arrived, shake off the respite and…
