Biden plays peek-a-boo with father time

Moments for nothing, now as always, time was never and time is over, reckoning closed and story ended. – from Endgame by Samuel Beckett I do it, you do it.  We peek. Especially if you’re an old economy, brick-in-the-mortar holdover who still uses a wristwatch. I was raised on wristwatches and I’m never without one.…

The perils of temptation

One of the earliest lessons I learned was the cautionary warning, “don’t tempt fate.” While not pragmatic on a karmic level, the phrase also has ramifications for real life. Use wisdom when arriving at choices, think about the future. Don’t be myopic.  Humbly consider all the possibilities that might ensue from your actions, now. On…

Did Joe Doze?

In this time of war and cholera, that is the pressing question.  Joe.  Did he? The Right say hell yeah! CNN’s fact-checker assures us President Biden did not nod off during meeting with Israeli prime minister And the Left is like uh, no! I’m in the “He may be a dope, but he was not…

COVID smoke, mirrors and convenient privacy

CNN, shameless purveyor of COVID fear porn, screams at us. Houston reports first pediatric Covid-19 death in youth with no underlying conditions   Wow, scary stuff. Children are dying…the children!

Ron Jeremy’s defense: “I was just doing my job!”

Was Jimmy Hayes jabbed (?) conspiracists wonder…

Did Jimmy Hayes get jabbed before his death? The Tin Foil needs to know. Nothing stirs up the conspiracy furor like an untimely death following in the wake of publicized “got my vaccine!” pageantry. The death of 31-year-old former NHL player Jimmy Hayes certainly qualifies as “untimely,” at least insofar as we can gather given…

Not anti-vaxx, not vaccine-hesitant; my archetype is vaccine-skeptical

I have respect for both the atheist and the religiously devout. They believe in clear partitions.  For atheism and religion are equally matters of faith. Agnostics irritate me. They straddle a fence that serves no apparent purpose. In some matters of belief, it either is or it isn’t. You Do, or you Don’t. The hemming/hawing…

The noose in the sand

Do you feel the noose tightening? Joe dissolves the “deadline” and the Taliban cements it. The chaos of evacuation gives way to a cold hard incontrovertible dilemma. Tweet The Taliban digs in and the noose in the sand is tightening around America’s neck, again. The first test of our pandemic mettle.  Endless wars, endless variants.…
