Fatal Attraction in the Digital Age

“A woman (Jacqueline Ades) is accused of breaking into a Paradise Valley home, bathing in the homeowner`s bathtub, and sending tens of thousands of disturbing text messages to the man`s phone after the pair went on one date.”

ABC News

Before breaking into her victim`s home she had already been arrested a couple of times for threatening to kill him for spurning her advances.

This woman wasn`t just a harmless kook, when police officers arrested her for breaking into the man`s home they found a large butcher knife on the passenger`s seat of her vehicle.

This Fatal Attraction psycho armed with a butcher knife and a cell phone bombarded her victim with over 65,000 texts.

Ades was charged with breaking and entering, threatening, stalking and harassment, but she won`t be behind bars for more than a few months. Her victim would be well-advised to change his name, undergo plastic surgery, delete all his social media accounts, and move far, far away.

After reading this article you may say “Glad it wasn`t me” and then swipe right on Tinder or reply to the sexy text the new temp at the office sent you.

But I would urge you to at least google the hell out of the next person you meet online before meeting him/her in person.

Outrage: Aretha Franklin’s Outfit Changed Every Day for Public Viewing

“Another day, another outfit change for late diva Aretha Franklin.

The Queen of Soul rocked a fresh outfit for the second day of her public viewing in Detroit on Wednesday – this time opting for a pastel blue frock and matching blue stilettos.

The I Say a Little Prayer songstress still had on her red lipstick and red nails – which went with the red dress she donned Tuesday.

Thousands of more fans lined up outside the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, where Franklin`s 24-karat-gold-plated casket was wheeled into early in the morning.”

Page Six

Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul, like any diva worth her salt rocked some snazzy outfits in her day, but she became a legend because of her powerful pipes and her commitment to civil rights.

Aretha wasn`t a Lady Gaga or a Miley Cyrus who relied on outrageous outfits as a marketing ploy, and it`s a shame that the clowns who organized her Detroit memorial are changing her outfit every day for her public viewing.

The Queen of Soul was the epitome of class, and these hucksters are turning her memorial into a sideshow.

How about a little respect for the music icon? How about simply dressing Aretha in a Gospel choir robe as a homage to her Gospel roots?

Old Ladies Crazy About Old Cowboy Who Rides a Robotic Horse

“When Mindy Weiss Affronti pulled up to the bank drive-thru two weeks ago and saw a man atop a robotic horse at the teller window, she did a double take.

Then she took his picture.

The friendly cowboy smiled, happy to oblige, before riding off. Left in the stupor of what she had seen, Affronti did what any other rational person would do: She posted the photo on social media.

And so began the newfound fame of Steve Bacque, the self-proclaimed Crazy Cranford Cowboy.”


You know your neighborhood has gone to the dogs when you see golf shirt-clad senior citizens riding on the sidewalk on a Hoveround. Instead of terrorizing the neighborhood cats and dogs, why don`t they just stay inside and do crossword puzzles and clean their dentures?

But I have to tip my hat to the Crazy Cranford Cowboy, a crazy old coot who tools around town atop a robotic horse is a pimp in my book.

I bet all the grannies at the Bingo parlor wish he was riding atop them! Bacque is going to ride off into the sunset with a horde of old ladies in Hoverounds chasing after him.

Racist Joe Arpaio’s Hero is Racist Donald Trump! What a Surprise!

“Joe Arpaio, the longtime county sheriff seeking a U.S. Senate seat in Arizona on Tuesday, said during a television interview it took him 75 years to find a hero in his life. That person: Donald Trump.”

The Washington Post

NBC`s Kasie Hunt asked Arpaio “Is John McCain a hero?” and he deflected by answering that Trump was his hero.

Before the ascendancy of Trump, Republicans, Democrats, and Independents would have answered: Of course, McCain is a hero, his battle scars and his bipartisanship leadership in the Senate bear witness to his courage and integrity.

But the GOP is beset by tribal rivalries, and such a simple question poses a minefield for Republicans. They don`t want to offend Trump and so many balk at answering in the affirmative.

I`m surprised it took the racist sheriff 75 years to find a hero to his liking. He referred to his tent city jail, where inmates were housed in inhumane conditions, as a concentration camp, you`d think his hero would be Adolph Hitler.

Last year our racist president pardoned Arpaio for his conviction for criminal contempt of court, that`s what probably tipped the scales in favor of Trump.

Arpaio is running for the Senate seat in Arizona in what hopefully will be his last hurrah. He`s last in the polls but I take slight comfort in that fact, because his hero still has the fervent support of most Republicans.

Donald Trump Vs a Speaker Phone: Video

“Trump attempted to put Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto on speaker phone in front of a group of reporters assembled in the Oval Office. The goal, apparently, was to talk about a new trade agreement between the U.S. and Mexico, but the outcome was an unforgettable clip that will forever be etched in our brains.”

The Cut

You`d think Donald Trump wouldn`t have any problems using a landline speaker phone, after all it`s ancient technology familiar to a septuagenarian, and the giant buttons are custom-made for his tiny fingers.

He doesn`t seem to have any problems using his Twitter machine, he tweets his fool head off all hours of the day and night. But maybe there`s a videotape of Trump taking 30 minutes to fire off each tweet.

The Stable Genius embarrassed himself, the office of the president, and indeed all of humanity.

I`m not going to provide a play-by-play commentary of this most humiliating incident, watch for yourself and hopefully you will join me in demanding that this fuc*ing moron be immediately impeached and removed from office.

Donald Trump Thinks the American Flag Has a Blue Stripe

“Donald Trump has been photographed colouring in an American flag wrong.

The US President was visiting children at a hospital in Ohio with his wife Melania when he sat down to colour in some pictures with children.

A photo tweeted out by secretary of the US Department of Health and Human Services Alex Azar showed Mr Trump sitting with partially coloured-in flag. Twitter users were quick to notice while the top stripe was correctly drawn in red, Mr Trump left the next two white and the coloured the fourth one blue.”


A photograph depicting Trump sitting down with children having fun with coloring books perfectly captures his intellectual deficit.

But when you notice that the Stable Genius is coloring a stripe on the American flag blue, you realize that this photograph should be hanging in a museum because it perfectly illustrates that the Leader of the Free World has the intellectual capacity of a small child.

The Russian flag has red, white and blue stripes, maybe the fuc*ing moron thought he was coloring the Russian flag.

Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel and Trump has draped himself in the American flag, to appeal to his base who equate standing up for the National Anthem with patriotism.

Trump has called African American NFL players “sons of bitches” for taking a knee when the National Anthem is played, knowing full well that they aren`t protesting the military or the flag, but protesting police brutality against people of color.

What do you call a septuagenarian who thinks the American flag has a blue stripe? How about a senile moron who has no business lecturing anyone on patriotism?

All the President’s Men Are Flipping on Donald Trump

“Sacha Baron Cohen is releasing his own Trump tape – a clip from Da Ali G Show on which President Trump appeared in 2003. The Who Is America? creator and star also resurrected his persona to skewer Trump in a NSFW letter, following Tuesday`s conviction of Trump`s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Trump`s former personal attorney Michael Cohen pleading guilty to eight federal crimes.”

USA Today

Donald Trump demands absolute loyalty from his staff, even though he treats them with contempt and summarily dismisses them if they aren`t obsequious enough or if they dare grab the spotlight for a moment.

How is Trump`s policy of “Be loyal to be, and I will treat you like dirt” working? Not so good!

Trump`s most intimate confidants have flipped on the President cum Mob Boss:

Michael Cohen, Trump`s lawyer/fixer/poop catcher pleaded guilty to committing campaign finance violations and said he did so at the direction of the president.

Allen Weisselberg, the Trump Organization`s CFO was granted immunity in exchange for giving prosecutors information for the investigation into Cohen and the hush money he made to women during the 2016 presidential campaign.

David Pecker, who runs the National Enquirer and is a long-time pal of Trump, was granted immunity in the federal investigation into Michael Cohen in exchange for information on hush money deals.

Cohen knows where all the bodies are buried, Weisselberg knows where all the money is hidden, and Pecker has all the stories and tapes documenting Trump`s numerous affairs locked in his safe. Trump is screwed.

And now everyone from Michael Cohen to Omarosa to Sacha Baron Cohen is releasing audio and video tapes exposing Trump as a liar. Dear God, what`s next? Will Mike Pence release a video tape proving that Trump doesn`t practice safe sex during their weekly prayer/humping sessions?

Trump`s base will remain faithful to him to the bitter end, but the people who really matter are turning against him, and it doesn`t bode well for his political survival.

Taking Your Kitty to the Vet? Calm Your Cat With a New Feline Radio Station!

“No cat relishes a trip to the vet. Being confined to a cramped carrier and hauled out of the house is a stress-inducing experience for most of our feline friends. But turning on the radio could help. Whiskas recently launched a radio station devoted to playing soothing sounds to keep cats feeling tranquil on the way to the veterinarian, according to Little Black Book.

Cat Calm Radio plays music by David Teie, a composer who writes music targeted at cats` preferences. His songs feature sounds that will be familiar and soothing to cats, like beats similar to the sound of suckling milk, played at the frequencies cats use to communicate with each other. Researchers have found that cats respond better to his cat-specific tunes than to human music.”

Mental Floss

I`ve owned cats all of my adult life, and if there`s anything I`ve learned about feline psychology is that they hate the trip to the vet. A ten-minute trip to the vet feels like an eternity, as soon as you place your kitty in a carrier and place him in your car he turns into Satan`s familiar.

When I drove from Oakland, CA to my new home in Lynchburg, VA I took my cat, Patches with me, but I wouldn`t have survived the trip with my sanity intact, had I not administered a tranquilizing pill to her every day.

If you think you are familiar with your new pussy cat`s vocalizations, just wait until you take him to the vet for the first time, he will unleash a cacophony seemingly emanating from the pit of hell.

You can whisper, “Oh pussy it`s going to be OK” all you want, put it won`t calm the savage beast. He won`t transform back into the purring sweetheart that you love until he`s back home.

Thanks God Whiskas has launched a radio station devoted to playing soothing sounds to keep kitties tranquil on the way to the vet. Music has a calming effect on me, after a bad day at work I will play a Sade CD and by the time I`m home I`ll be cool and calm. I`m sure that cat-specific tunes will have a similar effect on our pets.

Cat Calm Radio was launched to promote “National Take Your Cat to the Vet Day.” Check it out:

Hours After Manafort and Cohen Blows Trump Supporters Chant ‘Lock Her Up’

Yesterday a jury found former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort guilty on tax- and bank-fraud charges, and on the same day Michael Cohen, Trump`s longtime lawyer/fixer pleaded guilty to eight criminal counts. This one-two punch has left the administration reeling, and my guess is that even the White House butler is lawyering up.

When Trump bragged that he hires the best people, little did we know that he meant the best criminals. Manafort and Cohen aren`t aberrations, Trump surrounds himself with sleazy characters, witness this list of Trump intimates who have pleaded guilty to various felonies.

George Papadopoulos, former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.

Michael Flynn, Trump`s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.

Rick Gates, former Trump campaign aide and Manafort`s longtime partner in crime pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge.

I won`t even mention the Cabinet members who have resigned in disgrace.

Candidate Trump promised to drain the swamp, but the White House is fertile grounds for all kinds of swamp creatures, and most Americans are sick and tired of the endemic corruption.

With the exception of Trump supporters who live in an alternate universe, and they regard the Stable Genius as a man chosen by God to make America Great (re: white) Again.

Just hours after Trump was dealt these two major blows in federal courts, his supporters were chanting “Lock Her Up” and “Drain the Swamp” at a Make America Great campaign rally in West Virginia.

These morons are enthralled by Trump and the scales will never fall from their eyes, at least not until they die and the Almighty casts these white evangelical fuc*ers to hell.

But let us not grow weary in well doing, let us continue to fight the good fight until this abomination is impeached and removed from office.


Bruno the Fat Cat Who Stands on His Hind Legs When He’s Hungry Adopted

“After worldwide interest Bruno the cat has a new home.

The Russian Blue became an internet sensation after Morton Grove shelter Wright Way announced he was looking for a new family. Cats of his breed usually are supposed to weigh between 7-10 pounds; Bruno tips the scale at 25 pounds.

Bruno likes to stand on his hind legs, usually when he wants food. No one is sure how he learned this special trick, but everyone agrees it`s hilarious.”

ABC News

Bruno is a one-trick pony, he gained Internet fame because he has a penchant for standing up when he wants to be fed.

My kitty, Tico, also tips the scales at 25 pounds, and when he`s hungry he doesn`t stand on his hind legs, he walks on my belly and face until I get the message.

I`m not sure what I would do if Tico stood up on his hind legs, would I call the vet, an exorcist, or would I grab my cell phone and try to monetize the freak by posting videos on YouTube?

I`m glad Bruno found a forever home; I hope his new owner will pamper him.

Madonna’s Godawful Tribute to Aretha Franklin

“Who was Madonnas tribute for, anyway?

That`s the question many people on Twitter were asking after the Material Girl honored the Queen of Soul at the 2018 MTV VMAs in New York City last night. Madonna took to the stage toward the end of the broadcast to honor Aretha Franklin, who died last week at age 76. But, in doing so, viewers accused the 60-year-old pop icon of seemingly paid tribute to herself. And Madonna, who recently celebrated her milestone birthday in Malawi and Morocco, wore traditional African attire, leading some viewers to accuse the singer of cultural appropriation.”

E News

Aretha Franklin began her legendary career as a precocious little girl singing Gospel and playing piano at her father`s Baptist church, and at the tender age of 14 she recorded her first Gospel album.

In 1960, at the age of 18, she spread her wings and embarked on a secular career, recording for Columbia Records but achieving only middling success. The Columbia executives didn`t realize they had a diamond in the rough, a genius waiting to make her mark on the music scene and the world. Instead of giving her the keys to the recording studio, and telling her “You go girl, do your thing” they attempted to package her for a mass (re: white audience.)

After six frustrating years with Columbia, Aretha signed with Atlantic Records, where she teamed with legendary producer Jerry Wexler, and the rest is history. Aretha recorded some of her most iconic songs during her Atlantic era, including Respect, You Make Me Feel like a Natural Woman, and Think.

Aretha enjoyed critical and commercial success in the 60s, 70`s, 80`s and beyond. The Queen conquered just about every musical genre, including Jazz, Soul, Funk, Blues and Gospel.

You`re the producers of the MTV VMA`s, how do you pay homage to the great Queen of Soul? You ask another black musical icon, a Quincy Jones or a Dionne Warwick to say a few words about the legend.

What you don`t do is ask a self-promoter like Madonna, pop legend though she may be, to pay tribute to the Queen of Soul. Anyone with two brain cells could have predicted that Madonna would pay “homage” to Aretha by babbling about herself, and only mentioning the soul legend in passing.

And to add insult to injury the Queen of Hype wore traditional African attire! Girlfriend please, adopting African children doesn`t make you an African!

The VMA`s and Madonna failed miserably in paying Respect to the Queen of Soul.

Serena Williams Handles a Stupid and Racist Tennis Reporter With Style and Dignity

“The tennis great (Serena Williams) may also have still been struggling with nausea as a result of her interview with Inside Tennis reporter Bill Simons that weekend, during which he asked her a question that has apparently been plaguing him for 14 years.

I have been waiting about 14 years to ask you this question. After the 2004 Wimbledon match with Maria, I had the opportunity to interview Donald Trump on his L.A. golf course, and he said that Maria`s shoulders were incredibly alluring and then he came up with his incredible analysis: that you were intimidated by her supermodel good looks. My question is: Have you ever been intimidated by anyone on a tennis court, and what are your thoughts about that occurrence?

Williams replied:

“I honestly don`t have any thoughts about that. I can`t say I have been intimated `y anyone. That`s all. That`s it.`”

The Cut

I`ve been posting essays online since 1998 and I`ve written thousands of editorials on politics, current events and entertainment, but I`ve penned only a handful on sports or sports personalities.

This may explain why I`m writing a story about Serena Williams and the French Open which occurred back in May.

It`s an honor and a privilege for any journalist, not just a sports writer, to interview the greatest tennis player of all time. Tennis reporter Bill Simmons waited 14 years to ask Williams a specific question.

I would have asked the tennis icon any number of questions:

You`ve dominated Tennis for almost 20 years winning 23 Grand Slam singles titles, how do you explain your incredible longevity and consistency?

How do you keep yourself motivated when your agility and athleticism is so superior to your competition?

You`ve broken almost every record in tennis, is there a personal goal you`ve yet to achieve?

The bloody wanker waited 14 years to ask the Queen of Tennis if she was intimidated by Maria Sharapova`s supermodel good looks. The idiot was implying that Caucasians are inherently more attractive than people of color. As if Williams would consistently default when playing Sharapova because she was distracted by her golden locks. For the record Williams has a 19-3 lifetime record playing against Sharapova.

Simons namedropped Donald Trump in asking his ridiculous question, which leads me to conclude that he`s as much of a racist as he is a moron and a sexist pig.

Even though sports isn`t my forte I may write another essay about Williams, but I guarantee I won`t ever mention Simons again.

In Trump’s America Racists Feel Emboldened to Call Blacks the N-word

“A white woman was hospitalized following an altercation where she called a group of people the N-word on the X2 Metrobus.

Video emerged on Twitter showing the woman getting into an argument with another passenger. As the white woman begins walking off the bus near 2nd and H streets in Northeast D.C., she calls the other passenger the N-word.

The video shows the woman exiting the bus before cutting to a clip where she is on the ground, bloodied up.”


Donald Trump has enabled racists to the point where they call the police on black folks for barbequing while black, sleeping in a university lounge area while black, redeeming coupons while black, selling bottles of water while black, swimming in a community pool while black …

They call the cops on people of color knowing that police interactions with minorities often leads to their injury or death.

The mere existence of people of color in Trump`s America is an affront to these racists. Pre-Trump they used the N-word in their country clubs, fraternal organizations and in their private residences, but now they feel so emboldened that they brazenly call African Americans niggers in public.

This fuc*ing moron white lady, most likely a Trump supporter, called a group of bus passengers the N-Word while riding the X2 Metrobus, a bus line that serves the inner city.

I commuted to work on a bus in Oakland, CA, and believe me everyone`s emotions are on hair trigger when you are packed like sardines in a smelly noisy bus. Yelling “nigger” on an inner-city bus is nothing short of a death wish, the bus passengers should be commended for simply beating her, and not killing her.

Minorities suffer so many indignities at the hands of the white power structure, that I`m amazed the passengers showed mercy on this vile creature.

Trump can get away with his blatant racism because he`s always surrounded by Secret Service agents, but the average racist isn`t afforded such protection, and he/she ain`t going to get away with using vile racist slurs in public.

Remembering Aretha Franklin’s Mini-Me Johanna Colon

Hundreds of singers from the divas that top the Billboard charts to cruise ship warblers have cited Aretha Franklin as their inspiration and motivation for becoming entertainers.

Aretha Franklin is the gold standard, and if they can capture just a smidgen of her grit, determination, and talent, they consider themselves blessed.

Johanna Colon was just six-years-old when she went viral in 2015 when she channeled the Queen of Soul in her dance recital performance to Aretha Franklin`s Respect.

Aretha was impressed by the little girl`s virtuoso performance: “That girl is serious. She is fierce. I`m afraid of her,” Franklin said in an interview on The Talk.

The chunky little “Queen of Tutu” was fierceness personified, and she won our hearts.

Eat your Wheaties, say your prayers, and listen to Aretha`s “Respect” and you too can be fierce like a mother.

Respect the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin

The Queen of Soul has passed on to the other side, and she`s now singing in the heavenly choir, but her music transcended generations and will continue to be enjoyed and appreciated for generations to come.

Aretha is a soul and gospel icon, a civil rights champion, and a powerful voice that testifies to the heights that humanity can soar. Aretha leaves behind an astounding body of work, and tomes will be written about the impact she had on music and society at large.

In this essay I will focus on my favorite Aretha song, “Respect.” Who isn`t familiar with the soul classic that was written and recorded by Otis Redding in 1965, but of course the definite version is Aretha`s single released in 1967.

“Respect” became a civil rights mantra and an anthem for women`s rights, but at its core the song is a plea for respect in the bedroom. “Respect” was a euphemism for sex, and Aretha wanted her man to sock it to her when she got home.

This earthy appeal for her man to satisfy a woman`s sexual needs became an eloquent anthem for the struggle for civil rights. But when I hear “Respect” women`s rights and human rights aren`t uppermost in my mind, I simply get lost in the passion and the rhythm and I can`t help but sing along. As the young kids say, That`s my jam!

Aretha has earned my respect, and the respect of millions of people all over the world. As Birdman would say put some Respeck on her name, as you eulogize the Queen of Soul.

If the Donald Trump ‘N-Word’ Tape is Released Will it Bring Down His Presidency?

White House Press Secretary is the Queen of Liars, she would proclaim that she`s seen the presidential penis and can confirm that it`s thicker, longer and stronger than a tactical flashlight, if requested to do so by her pathological liar boss.

But she was unable to guarantee to the American public that a recording of Trump saying the N-Word doesn`t exist, which pretty much guarantees that such a tape is locked away in someone`s vault.

Omarosa released an audio tape of her and two other Trump staffers discussing the existence of a recording of Trump saying “nigger” as if the Holy Grail of politicians caught on tape saying outrageous things really exists.

If Trump publicly questions the intelligence of prominent African Americans, and calls them losers and dogs on Twitter, you can bet that he uses racial slurs to describe them in private.

A racist with a penchant for using the phrase “the blacks” in public will almost certainly refer to them as “the niggers” in private.

I would venture to guess that there`s more than one tape where Trump is caught using the most vile word in the English language, the only question is will it ever surface?

And if it is released to the media, will it bring down the Trump presidency? Of course not! Trump survived the release of the Hollywood Access tape, and he will weather the storm if the N-Word tape ever sees the light of day.

Trump`s racist base already knows that their hero is racist, they would get a kick out of hearing him calling blacks that loathsome word. They would dismiss the tape as harmless private banter.

The Republican-controlled Congress wouldn`t even censure him, arguing that indiscrete words spoken in private don`t rise to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors.

Sorry my fellow Democrats and Independents who are sick and tired of Trump`s racism, misogyny, homophobia, and plain stupidity, neither a Golden Showers tape nor an N-Word tape will bring down the Trump presidency.

Donald Trump’s Base is an Evangelical Cult

Two weeks before the Iowa caucuses, in January 2016, the longshot Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump bragged to a crowd in Sioux City: “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn`t lose any voters, okay? It`s, like, incredible.

At the time Trump`s prescient, and indeed prophetic statement, was derided as just another boast from the reality TV charlatan.

But now that statement is recited with awe and reverence by his fanatical base the same way Christians recite the words of Jesus recorded in the Gospels.

Two and a half years later Trump has survived multiple scandals and outrageous statements that would have ended the presidential campaign of any other candidate, and would have led to the impeachment of any other president.

Trumpism isn`t an alt-right offshoot of the Republican Party so much as it is an evangelical cult. A Trump stump speech, and it`s instructive that he still regularly holds campaign rallies, is like a church service. Trump rails against the media and Democrats the same way a televangelist condemns gays and godless liberals. A preacher`s sermon might be punctuated with “Amens” and “Halleluiahs” by the faithful, Trump`s speech will be interrupted by chants of “Lock Her Up” and “Build the Wall.”

You can`t use logic or reason to appeal to a member of a cult, he will just stare at you with a blank expression and quote from his holy book, and you can`t convince a Trump supporter that he`s worshipping a False Messiah, he will just stare at you with an evil expression and recite a Trump tweet.

The Grand Old Party has been taken over by a cult, and in order to save its soul, Republicans must impeach Trump, and excommunicate members of his heretical sect.

Republicans can`t afford to appease or compromise with Trump and his base without destroying everything they stand for, they must smite these heretics hip and thigh.

Trump has stood in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shot the independent judiciary, the media, and our Constitution, and he hasn`t lost any support. We must remove Trump by any means necessary.

Omarosa Claims Trump Wanted to Get Sworn in on ‘The Art of the Deal’ Instead of the Bible at his Inauguration

“In her new memoir, `Unhinged,` former White House adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman claims President Donald Trump considered getting sworn in for the presidency on his book, `The Art of the Deal.`

In the days leading up to his inauguration, Trump allegedly said, `Omarosa, what do you think about me getting sworn in on `The Art of the Deal?`

Though it`s not mandatory for presidents to use the Bible for the swearing-in portion of an inauguration ceremony, it has been standard practice throughout US history. Manigault Newman questioned Trump as to why he wouldn`t continue this trend.

`The Art of the Deal` is a bestseller! It`s the greatest business book of all time,` she says Trump told her. `It`s how I`m going to make great deals for the country. Just think how many copies I`d sell-maybe commemorative a inauguration copy?!`”

Business Insider

If Donald Trump ever writes a book it will be an autobiography, he couldn`t possibly focus on any subject other than himself for more than a few minutes.

Unfortunately, he doesn`t have the intellectual acumen to write a children`s book, much less a memoir.

Trump`s 1998 bestselling memoir was ghostwritten entirely by Tony Schwartz, not a jot or a tittle was written by the Stable Genius. Of course that doesn`t stop the functional illiterate from claiming credit.

It would have been appropriate for a fake president to get sworn in using a fake book as opposed to the Bible. I doubt that Trump has read either book, although he`s more familiar with “The Art of the Deal.”

Trump never misses a chance to make a buck, and he would have been delighted with the prospect of selling commemorative inauguration copies of “The Art of the Deal.”

Omarosa convinced her erstwhile reality TV buddy to follow convention and use the Bible. If Trump had used his memoir or a Penthouse Magazine his fervent white evangelical supporters would still have worshipped him as the Messiah.

Donald Trump Vs the Press: Whose Side Are You On?

Autocrats, whether they are right-wing fascists or left-wing dictators, consolidate power by attacking all rival spheres of power and influence. It`s Dictatorship 101 to emasculate an independent judiciary, intimidate the legislative branch and ridicule the press.

Donald Trump doesn`t have the intellect or patience to adhere to any particular political ideology, the only philosophy that he subscribes to is that of the narcissist, self-aggrandizement and burnishing his brand at any cost.

Trump`s attacks on individual judges and the justice system has been well chronicled, he expected the judicial system to vindicate his anti-constitutional executive orders.

Trump has the GOP-controlled House and Senate under his complete control, to the point where no Republican leader, with the exception of those who aren`t running for reelection, dare call him out on his racism, misogyny and just plain stupidity.

Trump`s campaign shtick included belittling the press, and he branded the news media “the enemy of the American people” a month after taking the oath of office. In the intervening months he has intensified his attack on the press. He can`t hold a press conference or deliver a stump speech without labeling the media “fake news” a dozen times.

In the last few months Trump has amped up his attack on journalists by labeling them, “the enemy of the people, a phrase made popular by Joseph Stalin.

This has been a one-sided war, Trump regularly blasts the press, and the fourth estate cowers under his belligerence.

But enough is enough! The editorial board of the Boston Globe is urging newspapers and online news outlets across our democracy to express their disgust for the president`s anti-press rhetoric on August 16, by writing editorials extolling free speech and condemning Trump`s war against the press.

So far over 100 news outlets have agreed – from large metropolitan newspapers to low-circulation small town weekly newspapers. I urge bloggers to join the bandwagon, in the last two years I`ve written over 200 anti-Trump essays, and I`m not going to stop until Trump is impeached and removed from office.

The press represents the American people, they uncover the truth, and speak that truth to power, to hold our elected officials accountable to the people.

At this critical juncture in the history of our democracy, I have made it crystal clear where I stand on this issue. How about you, will you stand with the press, or will you continue to enable an autocratic racist moron?

Madonna Thinks all Modern Music Sounds the Same

“Although this year has brought us some pretty good albums and singles – Scorpion, Liberation, the numerous G.O.O.D. Music releases, Everything Is Love, Lost and Found, Testing and lots more in different genres, Madonna`s still left unpleased saying there`s no distinction between all the sounds. The 59-year-old pop singer recently chatted with Vogue Italia and talked about the current landscape of music, in her eyes.

Madonna is currently preparing an upcoming album and living in Lisbon, Portugal, telling the publication how her new city provides a lot of inspiration for her craft. `It`s also such a nice antidote to what`s going on in the music business now where everything`s so formulaic, and every song has 20 guest artists on it, and everyone sounds the same. Something`s gotta give,` she explained.”


The Material Girl turns 60 this month, but she`s not at home in her mansion knitting thongs, and complaining about how today`s music sucks.

The sexy sexagenarian tours regularly, and she`s working on a new album to be released later this year, but actually she does criticize the state of today`s music.

The pop icon is entitled to her opinion, and aspiring singers and established artists would be well-advised to listen.

First of all they should listen to Madonna`s classic albums like: Like a Virgin, Ray of Light, Confessions on a Dance Floor, and Like a Prayer. The Queen of Pop made a huge impact on music with her originality, innovation, strong lyrical skills, and mediocre vocals.

Then they should listen to her criticism of the current landscape of music, the shit all sounds the same.

Why does almost every artist, especially in the hip hop genre, feel compelled to include 20 guest artists and a dozen producers in their albums? This insanity makes it almost impossible for a singular voice to rise to the top, and revolutionize the music industry.

I`m just going to listen to Madonna`s albums until today`s musical “stars” grow some balls, have faith in their music, and not include a dozen guest singers and rappers on their albums.

Old Man, 70, Mounts 11 Phones to Bicycle to Play ‘Pokemon Go’

“A 70-year-old Taiwan man has become a local celebrity after being spotted around the city playing Pokemon Go on 11 smartphones mounted to his bike.
Chen San-yuan who said he sometimes stays out until 4 a.m. hunting for Pokemon, said he became hooked on Pokemon Go after his grandson showed him how to play in 2016.”


Most senior citizens have a basic flip style cell phone with big, easy-to-read, raised buttons with large print, and a limited number of apps.

But Chen San-yuan aka “Uncle Pokemon” has 11 smartphones mounted to his bicycle to enable him to capture, battle and train virtual creatures. I`m not sure that`s a good idea, he may ride his bike over a cliff in search of Pokemon. Why can`t he be like most septuagenarians and prowl the attic in search of German soldiers?

The old codger became hooked on Pokemon Go when his grandson showed him how to play, and he spends $1,300 on his hobby. I suspect the grandson`s parents want to choke the stupid kid, gramps is burning their inheritance.

At least Uncle Pokemon isn`t driving while playing the damn game, an elderly Asian driver in search of virtual creatures — that wouldn`t end well.

Woman Tells Cops She Shouldn’t be Arrested Because She’s a Clean White Girl

“A 32-year-old Bluffton woman tried to talk police out of arresting her Saturday by telling them she was a very clean, thoroughbred, white girl, a sorority sister and a cheerleader who is dating a cop.

Officers said they saw Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw speed through a stop sign in a four-way stop intersection at about 1:45 a.m.

A Bluffton police report said when officers pulled Cutshaw over, she was slurring her words and she failed a Breathalyzer test.”


Blondie is the poster girl for white privilege, she expected to be let off with a warning even though she failed a Breathalyzer test, sped through a stop sign, and was in possession of marijuana. She expected her freshly scrubbed white face to be her “get out of jail free card.”

Becky`s argument isn`t as silly as it sounds, she was not so subtly reminding a white police officer that they usually spend their time stopping black motorists for trivial reasons and then blowing them away to Kingdom Come when they reach for their wallet.

Barbie`s “innocent white girl act” didn`t work, she was arrested and incarcerated. I hope they threw her in the drunk tank, where she would no doubt become intimately acquainted with inmates of color who have no tolerance for her white privilege.

Top Ten Ways to Celebrate International Cat Day

Flood the inbox of all of your friends and acquaintances with cat pics.

Respond only with a “meow” or a “purr” all freaking day long.

Act finicky, for example when the cashier at McDonald`s ask you “Do you want fries with that?” answer “Yes, but make sure they are lightly salted, uniform in size, and not too hot.”

Knead your coworker`s belly, and when they stare at you in amazement, say “You`re Welcome” and walk away.

Take a crap in your neighbor`s flower bed.

Take a nap on your coworker`s keyboard.

Wake up your partner by biting her toe.

Walk on your girlfriend when she`s napping on the sofa, and when she screams, “What the hell is wrong with you? reply “I`m hungry bitch, feed me.”

Yell in a crowded restaurant, “Someone Heimlich maneuver my punk ass, I have a hairball stuck in my throat.”

Take a Garfield stuffed animal to work and set up a shrine to Lord Cat in your cubicle.

Do You Talk to Your Cat in ‘Cat’ or ‘Human’?

“How often do you meow or purr at your cat? Are you more likely to talk to your cat in `cat` or in `human`? Occasionally I find myself purring back at my cat Lovie, if she has wandered up to say hi to me while I`m working and is busy purring in my direction. Sometimes I`ll give her a little meow, too. Until I read a new study on cat-human interactions, it hadn`t occurred to me to notice that although I `talk` to Lovie using cat sounds, I never talk to my dog Bella using dog vocalizations-I don`t ever bark or growl at Bella. I talk to Bella all the time, but in human language.”

Psychology Today/ Jessica Pierce Ph.D.

I take a lot of heat from my coworkers for being an unabashed cat lover, they look at me askance when I have the temerity to post photos of my kitties Tico and Ebony on my computer desktop.

Even though they know I also own a Pit Bull/German Shepherd mix, they don`t exactly regard me as a paragon of masculinity.

I kiss, cuddle and pet my feline companions, but if I ever greet them with a purr or a meow, I will turn in my man card. That`s where I draw the line!

My cats have little respect for me as it is, they walk on my keyboard when I`m writing my essays, and they plop on my face when I`m taking a nap. If I talked to them in cat language, they would lose all respect for me, and I just might find a hairball on my pillow every night.

Women, on the other hand, have a penchant for talking to cats in cat language and nobody bats an eye. It looks cute and sexy when a female purrs at a kitten, but if a guy does it he looks like a total pussy … cat.

Vive la difference! Ladies keep talking cat to your pets, and I will continue to talk to my pooch and my two cats in human.
