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 […]

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 […]

Now that the Halloween season is over, I am going to talk about a really scary subject–politics. This Tuesday is Election Day. And a year from now, I will get my chance to elect which clown politician will be my Commander-in-chief, Grand Poobah, Head Muckymuck, and Master of the University for the next four years. […]

After taking last week off to attend a literary conference and to watch a handyman fix our kitchen sink, I am going to do something I haven’t done in a while–a “have you noticed” post: Have you noticed the first week of August is really the end of summer? Not only does the days start […]

A First–A Post About Disco Music, Women’s Soccer, and Bastille Day

For about the zillion time, I feel like an old fart. Has it been 40 years since Disco Demolition Night in Chicago? Disco Demolition Night about the nearest thing we Late Baby Boomers had to Woodstock. True, it wasn’t a celebration of peace, love, rock music, pot, and skinny dipping. Instead, it was much like […]
