No more Obamacare

We should have called it the ‘Better Than Nothing Act’. I’ve never liked calling it ‘Obamacare’. It wasn’t his idea. It was what goddamned Mitt Romney enacted in Massachusetts, and it existed as an idea long before that. The name made…

Puppy Karma

I feel a little guilty. Not that I did the wrong thing, but that I didn’t do the best thing. I wanted to adopt from a shelter, or from an unplanned private litter. It’s the right thing to do. Instead,…

Electoral Boogie. Pick a dance, and perfect it already.

If you take a really fuel efficient car, convert it to electric power, then install solar panels on the roof, what do you get?  3 good ideas that won’t get you to work. That’s what we have for our Presidential…

He entered the conference code and pressed #. A swirling blue portal suddenly appeared in the center of the room, and before he could even think or react, he was sucked into it. Grasping for any purchase to stay his…
