Don’t Look Back

In 1978, the band Boston was urging us to “Don’t Look Back.” However, recently I have been looking back because what’s behind me is more than what’s ahead of me. And I’m not referring to my fat ass. I’m taking about life. In 1978, I looked to my life ahead of me. In 2019, I do tend to reminisce a bit.

Recently, my elementary school was holding an all-alumni school reunion before it closed forever. I didn’t go, but after seeing on Facebook who went from my grade, I waxed a bit nostalgic. If only I had waxed my neck and shoulders before the reunion, maybe I would have gone.

But then, reality hit me in the face like a fish out of water. I think I’m mixing metaphors, but that allows me to use this gif …

I think I know what Boston was getting at back in ’78. I’ll explain.

Winnowing the Candidates – Part 1

There are already too many Democratic candidates for the 2020 Presidential race. So each month, I will reduce the field by one candidate through an announcement in this blog. If more keep joining the race, we may have to eliminate a candidate every two weeks. After my blog post, the candidate named in the post will be notified and expected to withdraw from the race. Maybe by the 2020 convention, we’ll have the field whittled down to a single, strong candidate to defeat Donald Trump in 2020.

The first candidate I am eliminating from the race is …

An AOK MLK Day

I hope you had a good Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Day. I took some of the day off, and I hauled my 10 year old and her friend to an arcade where they could pretend they were somewhere else, anywhere else than with me, until it came time to recharge their gaming cards.

Also today, Donald Trump and Mike Pence surprised everyone with an unscheduled visit to take a minute to lay a wreath at the memorial to Dr. Martin Luther King. That was it. A minute. No words. No service projects. One quick wreath. The house cartoonist for Mad Dog PAC, @repeat1968, offered up this cartoon on Twitter to perfectly memorialize the event.

Monkey See, Monkey Do

First, apologies to monkeys. I did not want to drag you into the swamp called the Trump administration, but I was missing a title and that one seemed appropriate and did not require much thought.

By now, you may have seen this.

I just wish Trump had also tried kissing Melania. Would Pence have tried, too? Probably not as Melania I am sure would have fended off Trump’s amorous attempt. She has been able to protect herself from less so far that we have seen …

whitestmaninamerica@aol.com

I don’t know if Mike Pence broke any actual laws by using an unsecured AOL email address as governor of Indiana. Actually, I’m pretty impressed. I mean, in a state like Indiana where chances are you will marry a cousin, AOL is pretty cutting edge technology.

Well, it looks like he has learned his lesson, and from now on, the emails he receives at whitestmaninamerica@aol.com will be much more secure in the future.

DC Neighborhood Not Mending Pences

The neighborhood that Mike Pence and his wife will be moving into has prepared for the Pence’s arrival with a display of the LGBT flag on many houses.

I wonder if Pence not only supports gay conversion therapy, but also gay supporters conversion therapy? Regardless, the DC neighborhood is not stopping at flags, but has even more surprises in store for the Pence’s once they move in.

Stop Saying Mike Pence Went Through Gay Conversion Therapy!

With all the lies spewed during this last Presidential campaign, we don’t need to spread another. The latest fabrication making the rounds is that Mike Pence successfully went through gay conversion therapy to save his marriage. It certainly appears obvious that Pence was hoping for much more than just an air peck on the cheek from Trump in this shot.

Pence Out … Familiar Name In

In a blockbuster move designed to salvage his flagging political career, we hear that Mike Pence has withdrawn from the Republican Presidential ticket. After ruining Indiana with his cretinous, archaic policies, Pence took his political hate show on the road nationally as Donald Trump’s running mate/sidekick/accomplice/apprentice troll. It was never a good fit as Trump’s bloated ego could not handle that the general public seems to prefer the hate-filled Pence to the Orange Goblin Trump.

Sources tell us that Trump has already chosen a Pence replacement, and it is a familiar political name … Bush.
