Mike Pence, why hast thou forsaken The Plan?

I feel bad for Mike Pence.  Poor man, assigned seating next to the biggest microphone hog in existence, the most unruly and inflammatory of all Presidential attention whores in the history of our humble republic, and all he got was a stupid ride on Air Force 2?  Sharing the stage with a larger-than-life 140-character demagogue,…

Never let a good mutation go to waste

Give them an inch. These are the wisest words in the history of mankind when describing organized bands of ruling governmental entities. Give them an inch. I’m not an anti-masker. I don’t understand those people. Wearing a mask is the faintest token of collective respect and cohesion in these times. They are not intrusive, easy…

Another COVID symptom: semantic subterfuge

The news media continues to tout, or relay, this epidemiological semantic subterfuge. The new coronavirus variant spreading in the US, the UK, and elsewhere does not cause more severe illness, a major study suggests Not to single out this media outlet because they’ve all been doing it with regards to the UK COVID mutation. Admittedly,…

“Scoldin'” Joe Biden

Joe Biden, easing into Expert Piranha Mode ever gently, smells the copper. Trump blood. The scent of Trump blood is permeating our national nose. His 8- or 12- or 85-D superpowers are slipping away before our eyes. The leaking began on November 3 and it is accelerating as Biden’s Presidency looms on the not-so-distant horizon.…

David Cross, blood-thirsty doofus.

I once thought Arrested Development was a damned hilarious show. It never bored me with its perpetual showering of what I call “doofus humor.”  Whereas many times a show’s comic motif gets tired after a season or 5 and begins to run threadbare, most of the repetitious props Arrested Development showed us seemed funnier each…

Dr. Fauci announces “Herd Immunity of the Month” as more Americans willing to be jabbed

I’m reposting a piece I wrote in April, just one month into the nitty gritty meat of our pandemic. We were viral virgins then.  Information slammed us fast and furious with its floundering inconsistencies.   Everything we read and heard was a disarrayed torrent of claims, conjectures, fears, paranoias, and whole lot of bullshit.  It’s understandable…

Stevens-Johnson Syndrome is a real drag.

This sucks! Don’t catch it if you have a say in the matter, which you might… Stevens–Johnson syndrome (SJS) is a type of severe skin reaction. Together with toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) and Stevens–Johnson/toxic epidermal necrolysis (SJS/TEN), it forms a spectrum of disease, with SJS being less severe.

Conspiratard Alert: Pfizer vaccine demonstrated 100% efficacy for Tiffany Dover

Wherein I kick off a new blog category. According to the cute and cuddly tinfoil crowd, Tiffany Dover (apropos of this), that nurse from Chattanooga who passed out on video following her Pfizer vaccination last week, has DIED! Red alert, red alert. Raise the sinister tales of paranoia. Nothing shrieks conspiracy like a carefully crafted…
