Same Shit. Different Day.
Yeah, I know. That’s an overused phrase. I was thinking of using The More Things Change, The More They Stay the Same, but that’s overused too. And, frankly, I feel as though I sound like a broken record. However, there’s… Read More ›

It’s Officially “A Sigh of Relief”

Is Anybody REALLY Excited About This Election?
I’m not. I’ve been a political junkie ever since I can remember. I had an FBI file when I was very young. I used to go around to colleges in the Boston area and talk about the killings at Kent… Read More ›

Scott Brown is a Vapid Little Weasel
People know what I think of Scott Brown. He’s a bullshitter. I’ve been known to be one too with more than 30 years in advertising. One thing’s for sure. You can’t bullshit a bullshitter. This whole “common man” and “independent”… Read More ›

I’ve been talking about how important both Elizabeth Warren and Tammy Baldwin are to this country to anyone who will listen for a while now. When people ask me why they are so important, my answer is very simple: They… Read More ›
Who says because I voted for Obama that I can’t criticize him?
I don’t know how many “groups” there are on Facebook, but I know I’m a member of too many groups to keep up with them. I’ve got to tell you there’s a virtual plethora of groups supporting the Democrats. There’s… Read More ›
