Elephants

Most of us saw or heard the campaign ads for the gubernatorial race for Florida. Ron DeSantis, dressing his infant daughter in MAGA motif pajamas, helping her with border wall building blocks, and reading her a faux bedtime story about the fanciful mind of Donald Trump. Unfortunately, the internal xenophobic...

More elephants will get killed as trophies. Cash-short countries do have to think about revenue, and carrying capacity is but a rationalization when eco-tourism is crippled by a pandemic. What’s worse is that killing bushmeat remains always remains an option beyond the poaching for ivory. x “We can expect not...

Minnesota law enforcement, at its based level exhibits some intersectional issues often represented in fictional culture products like Fargo. Their police forces haven’t learned very much since the death of George Floyd. So many examples of bad faith below:

Donald Trump didn’t really say why he blew up the meticulously negotiated $900 billion stimulus bill, throwing Washington into chaos and screwing over millions of people who are simply trying to survive the winter. But since this is Trump, you can be certain the motive was both gobsmackingly petty and monumentally self-serving. Oh,...

Pundits in the media want me to believe that because 74 million people voted for Donald Trump, their opinions count more than the 81 million that voted for Joe Biden. Publications, tv talking heads, and analyst say over and over, we need to listen to the 70 million that voted...

Tired of the home of Barnum Bailey Circus clowns holding Florida hostage as the Republicans today showed just how much they care about We the People?  I sure am. You eat an elephant one bite at at time.  You take seats away from elephants one vote at a time. We...

Don’t look for a bottom. There isn’t one. It’s just elephants’ assholes all the way down. Today, Trump was asked about the death of legendary journalist Cokie Roberts and, well, he just couldn’t help himself: x Trump comments on the passing of legendary journalist Cokie Roberts: “I never met her....

This essay is not about political rights and wrongs or choosing up sides between Donkeys vs. Elephants. We all should have awakened this morning and become outraged once we saw the photograph of a father and daughter dead, face down in a pool of water. The father, Óscar Alberto Martínez,...

Ah, spring. Life is revitalized, and hope renewed. Winter is in the rear view mirror, and the promise of a long, lazy summer fills the windshield. Cast your mind back two years to the spring of 2017. The hopeful, sparkly dew of anticipation in a brand new administration, the smell...
