Ordinary Joe and the Vice-Presidency

Posted by OrdinaryJoe - August 16, 2020 - Features, Politics

Oh, no, I’m not Joe Biden’s vice-presidential pick. Since Mike Pence isn’t going anywhere, I won’t be President Trump’s veep, either. Heck, even Kayne West probably wouldn’t consider me to his second banana. During the last presidential campaign, I gave out my reasons why I would be an ideal vice-presidential nominee: Several times in this […]

Last week, I did a Have You Noticed? post. In this edition of the Soapbox, I am going to do something I haven’t done in a year–a Boo/Yahoo post. The beginning of March. Yahoo. Even though March is not my favorite month, it is a lot better than February. And spring is just a few […]

I am going to do something I haven’t done in a half-year–a Have You Noticed? post. Have you noticed that February never seems to end? Worse, since this is a leap year, it’s going to be longer? Have you noticed that moderation is no longer a virtue in the Democratic Party? Have you noticed nobody […]

Some Words on Politics During the Presidents’ Day Weekend

I am going to discuss a subject I have more or less avoided in a long while, and no, it’s has nothing to do with S-E-X. Instead, I am going to talk about presidents and politics. I know I have become disenchanted with politics, but it is like love was on February 14–it is in […]

It’s has been one busy week since my last post. Donald Trump was acquitted in the impeachment fiasco trial, the Kansas City Team With a Somewhat Politically Incorrect Nickname won the Super Bowl, the Iowa caucus was a disaster, radio gasbag Rush Limbaugh has been diagnosed with cancer and won the Presidential Medal of Freedom, […]

Today, I am suffering from writer’s block. Whenever that happens, I like to examine my more sensitive literary side and write poetry. Not surprisingly, I am going to compose another one of my stream-of-conscious poems: No writing today. I’m feeling Depressed That Christmas And New Years Came and went Quicker than Santa Claus Fleeing a […]

The new year has come. I didn’t make any New Years resolutions except one–I will try to make An Ordinary Joe’s Soapbox the best blog in the galaxy. Even though I know blogging has become rather passé, I still enjoy getting on my little soapbox and opining on issues that interest me. And I hope […]

Some Lessons From the Teen Decade

One of my favorite songs from the classic rock group Boston is “Don’t Look Back”. Now that 2020 is here and I have 20/20 hindsight about the Teen Decade, I am not going to extensively look back on the past because it is way beyond the scope of this blog. It would take me books–which […]

It’s that special time of the year! Not only is it the last post of the year, it’s time to hand out the annual Joeys! I created the Joeys in 2011 to present awards in categories not normally seen in the “best of” lists in newspapers and magazines. There are no monetary compensation, medals, or […]

Thanksgiving is only a week and a half away. Rather than recounting the history of the first Thanksgiving or writing one of those “we have a lot to be thankful” posts, I am going to describe a few things I am not thankful for during the turkey holiday: Black Friday. A pseudo-holiday celebrating perhaps the […]
