I was recently asked; what do you think about the Dave Chappelle controversy? Without explanation, I knew the questioner was referring to his recent Netflix comedy special “The Closer.” I must first confess that I am a big fan of Mr. Chappelle. His now-defunct late-night sketch comedy show, his stand-up,...

Civilized societies dictate that every opinion counts: but is that true? Put another way, yes, everyone is entitled to their opinion but the real question is; should every opinion count? Oh sure, there is value in hearing everyone out, but what happens once that opinion is given is what separates...

Politico constructed an oral history of the bin Laden raid and it’s worth the read to get a sense as one can from on oral history, of the authenticity of the event, as well as some interesting details, the rosary held by Biden, and especially the trashing of previous guy...

Fox News and Greg Gutfeld apparently believes he’s funny enough to go up against late night comedy programming. Because of the previous guy, the world might be safe for RW late night humor when ‘Pretentious Virtue Signaling’ can be an intelligible punch line. As if Dennis Miller on RT makes us feel better...

I took a day to think about the death of radio personality Rush Limbaugh. My immediate thoughts were snark-provoking. Although Limbaugh spent over 30 years mining the cavernous depths of cruelty, I wanted to suppress the urge to welcome the death of his brand of political divisiveness—but who am I...

On a day when Trumpite dead-enders vigorously blasphemed out of pretty much every orifice (I kinda wanted to show up to their faux-Christian pity party with a giant “Where’s Your God Now?” sign), this might be the craziest thing you’ll see today.

We’re not humoring Trump’s father Fred with a Potemkin executive desk to humor delusional derangement. It has always been deadly serious. Whatever his bluff, call it.

Donald Trump’s favorite person, aside from himself, has worked assiduously over the years to make it appear as if she isn’t nearly as vulgar, brash, or downright gormless as the rest of the Huns in her family. But it’s a dark ruse — as evidenced by her tacit complicity in...

Voting for anyone other than Biden and not doing all the responsible down-ballot voting will bring not a revolution, but more likely accelerates the scientific climate disasters already predicted with the worst POTUS in history.  Reelecting Trump is an ontological argument for not only the existence of a supreme being, but...
