Manatee

It’s sick. So, so sick. But that’s what Republicans are all about these days: inspecting children’s genitals. It’s pretty much all they talk about—when they’re not talking about Mr. Potato Head. And his starchy, androgynous genitalia. They’re so into it, in fact, they’ve passed bills that would allow them to scrutinize any...

The Florida Piney Point phosphate plant in Manatee county has been releasing 202 million gallons of wastewater into Tampa Bay since the risk of collapse of the holding reservoir became international news due to a risk of major collapse with flood walls of over twenty feet predicted to inundate local communities and...

No. No.  We don’t need infrastructure bills in America .   We are fine according to republicans.  Well, that state of mind is being changed I bet as I type. (or maybe not according to Republican thinking)  Manatee County Florida is under mandatory evacuations and every homeowner can expect higher homeowner...

I’ve been paying only intermittent attention to this weekend’s CPAC event. Not much has changed since they choppered Donald J. Trump out of Washington like a zoo manatee being returned to its natural habitat. Ted Cruz is still awful, and the rest of the Trumpaloompas remain firmly ensconced inside the regal...

This post-election period has been like no other, for reasons I don’t need to restate. While every outgoing president and presidential challenger in my lifetime—even Nixon, FFS!—left the White House and/or relinquished claims to power more or less gracefully, putting country far above self and party, Donald Trump is a...

Florida’s iconic and beloved manatees are not immune to the cruelty of Trumpists.  In the Homosassa River North of Tampa, a manatee was found with injuries to its back. The word Trump was etched into the slow-moving sea cow. The Center For Biological Diversity has offered a reward leading to the...

Donald Trump has frequently referred to COVID-19 as an “invisible enemy” — which may be why he’s pretending he doesn’t see it. The coronavirus outbreak is worse than it’s ever been in this country, but as the lame duck à l'orange flops about for the next two months like an...

Johnny Virus-seed has really done a number on this country. Not only has he dutifully ignored the now-resurgent pandemic, he’s done everything in his power to personally contribute to it. And while Secret Service officers would famously take a bullet for POTUS, I don’t think they signed up for this....

The day after Johnny Virus-seed’s superspreader events in Florida — hey, they’re not going to die before November 3; that’s all he cares about — a billboard in Waukesha, Wisconsin, is taunting POTUS over his 2020 COVID Road Show. (Will he have T-shirts made up with all the tour stops...

It doesn’t take preternatural insight to see Donald Trump isn’t a religious guy. “Two Corinthians” was a big tip-off, as is the fact that he’s the apotheosis of the Seven Deadly Sins — greed, sloth, envy, pride, daughter lust, fried-chicken-skin hoovering, and looking like an irregular, overfertilized squash. (I think that’s...

I’ll never understand why people think Republican presidents — and Republicans in general — are good for the economy. We have decades of economic data that say otherwise. When it comes to the economy, Republicans are like loud, stumbling drunks who keep insisting they’re okay to drive. Every Friday and Saturday...

When you’ve been a lifelong bullshitter but your brain has slowly turned into cat piss and sand and you can no longer remember your lies … well, you tend to embarrass yourself, big-league. Trump, of course, is denying that he skipped a planned visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial...

MSNBC showed  anecdotal evidence (no link for now) of one — dare I say it? — emerging theme of denial from Trump supporters about his failure on handling the coronavirus pandemic: it’s just a “snapshot” of Trump’s performance.  He has done many great things for this nation, and like some kid with one...

Um … x President and Mrs. Obama built/has a ten foot Wall around their D.C. mansion/compound. I agree, totally necessary for their safety and security. The U.S. needs the same thing, slightly larger version! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 30, 2018 Off the top of my head, I can...

First, let me deal with #2 (FL Democrats campaigning for GOP candidates), because this one really pisses me off. If anyone wants to know why I beat my head against the wall in this stupid state, it’s because of crap like this: Kathy Lewis (D-FL Senate Dis 20) Democratic state Senate...

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. Who gives a fat rats ass what I predict? What was I on the secret Manafort witness thingy, 50%? But tell me this, what in life, other than death isn't a 50-50 proposition. When you strip it down to the core, even your weatherman on...
