Stranger than Fiction: again

This is one of my personal favorite assignments from writing class last year…in response to rules that the work be a limerick and contain certain other attributes of writing poetry.    I had great fun writing it— THE DONALD’S MARCH TO INFAMY There once was a boy named Donald Who wanted to be rich, and grow up to be President ha ha! said the people … Continue reading Stranger than Fiction: again

Nursery Rhyme commentary

  Remember the Maiden All Forlorn? Who kissed the cow with the crumpled horn? Ever wonder what was her problem? Was it the Man All Tattered and Torn? Did our Maiden prefer the Cow to the advances of the passerby? The saddest dilemma the poor Maiden faced was that to report the bad man was out of place for a mere milkmaid with a pretty … Continue reading Nursery Rhyme commentary

rats and sinking ships

Donald Trump finally succeeded in shocking his fellows… now he’s watching in dismay while they scramble to jump ship. It was OK when Mr T made nasty remarks about Megan and Rosie and Miss Universe that were just worthy of snickers… his followship barely wrinkled. The insane idea of using the nukes as long as they are stacked up waiting to annihilate or “educate” various … Continue reading rats and sinking ships

“Many Say”—the new “THEY”

Well, one thing I’ll grudgingly give Donald Trump is that when he says “many say” he actually isn’t exaggerating===every word he says is diligently (and selectively) repeated on the television, in newspapers…on-line magazines, even Facebook.   Since he never takes credit (responsibility) for what he says  no matter how many times the video footage is repeated. One wonders…[uh, as for the use of “One” in place … Continue reading “Many Say”—the new “THEY”

WAIT! DO RUSSIANS REALLY OWN DONALD J. TRUMP? (Re-blogged from Jnana’s Red Barn.)

Originally posted on Jnana's Red Barn:
Apart from the furor over the WikiLeaks release of hacked Democratic National Committee emails is a much bigger, more troubling, question: Exactly why were the Russians doing covert electronic snooping against the American liberal party, anyway? (Makes me wonder about the presumed security of U.S. State Department lines, by the way – the ones Hillary Clinton avoided at… Continue reading WAIT! DO RUSSIANS REALLY OWN DONALD J. TRUMP?

Hey…we love Pocahontas!

http://www.dailykos.com/stories/2016/5/26/1531355/-Donald-Trump-gets-called-out-for-his-offensive-Pocahontas-remark-against-Senator-Elizabeth-Warren I realize that Mr. Trump is fully intending to insult Senator Elizabeth Warren…and by association all of the Native American Tribes in general.  Why not?  Why should they be exempt from the general bad-mouthing by the President Assumptive Trump.   (Just kidding…no derision of Native Americans intended. ) My first reaction was to wonder why “Pocahontas” would be taken as an insult and derogatory slur.   … Continue reading Hey…we love Pocahontas!

The Donald–renamed and re-blogged

HI… I originally wrote this ditty for a WordPress class last year.  It is re-blogged here because I think it is still very pertinent to current events.    With apologies to my readers that have read this bit before. Who you calling imperfect? There once was a boy named Donald Who wanted to  be rich, and grow up to be President ha ha! said the … Continue reading The Donald–renamed and re-blogged

Slingin’ Smack

Donald Trump is no horse’s rump no matter what I say. This is a man with a Midas’ Touch, who slays rival politicos …like the old knights slew dragons. They could all learn a lesson from The Donald… the more wheels spin the deeper they dig in the mud–or muck. As the saying goes: you can’t Con a Con! What are the other R’s thinking? … Continue reading Slingin’ Smack

Using Time Bonus

I never have had trouble killing time, as they say, although many times “found” time is a bonus for me.  This is because it is usually time spent in a waiting room somewhere, an airport, in-between classes…wherever there is nothing to do but sit.  Watching people is great fun, and that is one of the perks about waiting rooms, there are always people waiting too, … Continue reading Using Time Bonus

Donald Trump is going… where?

Watch those spectators sitting behind debate stars (re-blogged)

Some of the most interesting fans, or supporters, or spectators–whatever you call them–are the people sitting in the stands directly behind the speaker’s podium at televised speeches. A case in point is the woman who ended up more or less trapped at a Donald Trump rally recently.  She happened to be black…which she said was perhaps not at all coincidental…and she was escorted to the … Continue reading Watch those spectators sitting behind debate stars (re-blogged)

The Donald’s March to Infamy (re-titled and posted again.)

This is one of my personal favorite assignments from writing class last year…in response to rules that the work be a limerick and contain certain other attributes of writing poetry.  I had great fun writing it—and I think it is very pertinent at this particular time, less than a week away from the  Election for President of the United States.    I have reposted this before, … Continue reading The Donald’s March to Infamy (re-titled and posted again.)
