Karens and Ice-Cube

Yesterday I learned that I cannot make jokes about menopause when the topic of conversation is Karens, because it's sexist. *A Karen, if anyone doesn't know, is a racist white woman who has lost her mind. She is a tRump supporter. Legend has it that the first such woman caught on tape was named Karen. … Continue reading Karens and Ice-Cube

The Mob is Out of the Closet

Attorney General Bill Barr made clear during his confirmation hearings that he believes a president of the U.S. has unlimited power.

Your Death is a Risk Trump is Willing to Take

U.S. unemployment numbers have reached a ten year high at 22 million. This won't bode well for Trump and the GOP come November. Trump dropped the COVID19 ball for 70 days, although new information tells up that he knew about the impending pandemic as far back as November.
