The elections are over. Looks like Joe Biden will be the next president, but Donald Trump will probably not concede until Inauguration Day. I was thinking about writing a long post about the elections. But even though I did my civic duty and voted early by mail, I was ws probably less excited on Election […]

In 2016, I wrote a post called “Election of Shame”. With some alterations and updates, I am rerunning that post because I feel this is another Election of Shame. “You’re not interested in politics this year,” my wife told me the other day. She is one of those odd ducks who get more excited over […]

It is an election year, which meams it’s time for another political post. This year, I have become completely agnostic towards politics. I wouldn’t vote for President Donald Trump or Joe Biden if you gave me a fistful of dollars at the polling booth. And what ever happened to intriguing third party candidates like Barry […]

Much has happened since I last stepped up on my soapbox. President Trump has contracted coronavirus, the first presidential s**tshow debate occurred, there is a Supreme Court vacancy, the Tampa Bay Lighting won the Stanley Cup, the Chicago Cubs played like the Cubs and were swept in the National League playoffs, the National Football League […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
