I have to say that police these days are doing an excellent job protecting our Miranda rights.
With the decision to limit both candidates tonight to only factual statements, the debate has been truncated to 10 minutes. For those readers that may be Trump supporters, that means the debate will be shorter in length. Your (sic) welcome.
Much to the chagrin of the blogosphere, I am back from a small hiatus. And what I always say is that it is not the size of the hiatus, but how you use it.
If I have gained weight over the summer, would that be a weight loss loss?

The Right has battered and bashed San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick over his decision to protest violence against minorities by sitting during the national anthem. I just have a very simple question for the Kaeperbashers.
In an egomaniacal display of narcissism, failed professional football player Tim Tebow staged a workout in front of baseball scouts today.
Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump rolled out his FIRST plan today. FIRST stands for Fix It Right Says Trump, and is meant to be a team-focused attempt to address America’s problems with teams being led by experts on those issues.
Donald Trump himself heads the America FIRST team, and has started making appointments to head his various FIRST teams that will tackle and fix America’s problems.
I had a family wedding to attend recently. It is summer, so that normally means I dust off one of my hideous summer sport coats that are all older than Obama’s presidency. My wife openly wept at the thought, rending her garments in two (great, new clothes for her), begging me to <visible shudder> buy new clothes. Well, that was not going to happen, until I made a tactical error.
Donald Trump appears ready to admit to the world that his wife Melania illegally worked in the USA on the wrong type of visa, thereby committing fraud and putting her citizenship in doubt.
The diving pool at the Rio Olympics turned a murky shade of green yesterday as compared to the crystal blue waters in the swimming pool …
During this 2016 Presidential campaign, we have all come to learn just how considerate and thoughtful Donald Trump is. He demonstrated that consideration once again as he was speaking in North Carolina today, hinting that gun rights advocates may want to take out Hillary Clinton. How considerate of him!
Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump has shut down this blog and most other humorous political blogs.

Before I knew the list was from the latest Sharknado movie, I thought it may have been a list of the speakers from the Republican National Convention.
A devastating balloon drop closed the Democratic National Convention, killing 3 while injuring 6 including Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Retired Admiral John Hutson said about Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump at the Democratic National Convention, “Donald, you’re not fit to polish John McCain’s boots.” Of course, this was a complete red herring as we all know that John McCain prefers loafers (see Sarah Palin as former running mate).
The Democratic National Convention got off to a rocky start as Bernie Sanders believers appeared ready to take the Jonestown route rather than endorse Hillary Clinton. But the Democratic convention soon settled into thoughtful, rational, stirring speeches presented by prestigious politicians, everyday people, and A-list celebrities not named Scott Baio. What is a political blogger to write about?
Melania Trump commented on First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention.
The time is nigh for the Democrats to show that a national nominating convention can be substantive and offer clear plans for the country, and not be a thinly-disguised WWE backstory of the feud between Terrible Trump and Killer Cruz. But I think if the Dems want to try and sway some on-the-fence Trump backers to vote Democratic, here are some suggestions to add a little pizzazz to their convention.
See the black smoke? Smell the noxious fumes?
Billionaire Peter Thiel showed just how crazy this Republican National Convention was by announcing that he is proud to be an openly gay Republican. No, the fact that he is openly gay is not the crazy part.
Republicans have constructed the most overtly anti-LGBT platform in history, but Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump is doing his best to show he is sympathetic towards the LGBT community.
While it appears that Melania Trump’s speech last night at the Republican National Convention did include similar words and thoughts that Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech used, that likely unintended cribbing could have and should have been easily explained away. Instead, the Plagiargate scandal has now just widened.
Donald Trump is reconsidering his choice of Mike Pence as Vice President.
On Face The Nation this morning, conservative pundit and publisher of The Federalist, Ben Domenech, said that “Now this party (Republican) is coming to Cleveland to die.”
The Republican presidential ticket of Donald Trump and Michael Pence is set to enhance the Trump legacy.
In 1993, we heard Charles Barkley declare that he was not a role model.
Old White Men asked, “Why won’t black athletes be role models?”
My summer concert plans are a disaster so far. I entered the summer with grandiose plans to see about 10 performers, some old & some new. Those plans were quickly derailed, crashed and burned not unlike any weekend “to do” list I have ever made or any financial plans for retirement I have ever structured. The culprit? As always … an evil-doer using the alias of “family obligations” has been identified, arrested, tried & convicted for viciously murdering my summer concert plans.
I had wanted to kick-off my summer concert plans by seeing Lord Huron headline at a festival. They are an up & coming indie band that I really enjoy.
My oldest daughter gave me one of their CD’s. She would certainly want to see them. Nope, despite being a big fan, she had no interest. My friends had no interest since they typically cannot be enticed to a concert unless it is a Beatles reunion with an original line-up featuring both Pete Best and Stu Sutcliffe. But of course I can count on being able to drag my wife to a concert that she has absolutely no interest in attending, right? Nope, those family obligations rise up in the form of a daughter’s dance recital rehearsal. I refused to be a total loser and attend a festival by myself (Yay, I am alone and festive!), so I succumbed to having my butt caressed by the couch monster at home.
Despite the lackluster start, I figured I could recover and get my concert plans back on track when I saw tickets still available to see Steely Dan, a old fave of mine that I have never seen. Once again, news of this concert opportunity spread among family and friends generated about as much interest as a Bay City Rollers reunion tour. Wait, what? Never mind, the Bay City Rollers are already reunited and touring.
Sigh! But I had an ace up my sleeve, a more casual friend who is a known Steely Dan fan, bordering on stalker. Once again the heinous family obligations rose up, this time from his side, requiring his attendance at an out-of-town family reunion.
Then doubt crept in. These dudes (major dudes for any Steely Dan fans) are old. Their vocals were never the best in their prime. What will they sound like now? I saw 2/3 of the formerly golden-throated warblers called America in concert a couple years ago, and if I could have found a pencil to puncture my eardrums, I would have. If America sounds so bad, how bad will Becker and Fagen sound? So I grabbed caution from the wind and passed, preferring to remember their original vinyl sound complete with scratches rather than their potentially scratchy voices of today.
At that point, I needed a new concert plan. What I came up with was a plan to see 5 concerts for ZERO dollars. That’s right, 5 FREE concerts. I’m not talking about money for gas, train fare, a Mott the Hoople Reunion Tour 2016 commemorative t-shirt, or overpriced hot dogs and beer. I’m just talking about admission … $0.00. I successfully launched that plan over the Independence Day holiday weekend.
NASA has received a recent flood of applications from black Americans for the first planned flight to Mars to begin colonization of what has been known up to this point as the Angry Red Planet.
I really hate that after the Dallas shooting tragedy, people have taken colorful sides: white, black, or blue. I would prefer that rather than taking sides, we all stand together with arms linked.
My youngest daughter somehow survived her first overnight summer camp stay.
Hillary Clinton was relieved and contrite following the public FBI scolding she received this morning about her careless email practices.
The only chance your tree would have is if it were a (Red, White &) Blue Spruce.
Happy Independence Day!
Happy Independence Day. I’d like to present some appropriate cookies to our politicians.
I was really confused when I saw this shown before my movie the other day …
There are those that will argue that right wingers are already crazy, but can they back it up? What proof is there? Oh yeah … Sarah Palin, Alex Jones, Michele Bachmann, Donald Trump, and sadly the list goes on and on. But here’s a way to drive the right wing crazies even crazier (if such a thing is possible).
I think England now has a new term to express displeasure … Brexit!
Residents of the UK already have over 1,000,000 names on a petition to re-do the Brexit vote. I think it is kind of clever that the Brits have a Plan B in case they royally screw-up, which they appear to believe they did.
Here are some interesting facts from a US perspective about the Brexit vote.
House Democrats decided to imitate their Republican counterparts today.
I am tired of gun arguments that go like this …
