Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

Dinky Donny Yields to Powerful Pelosi
After more than a month of useless, pointless, expensive egomania, Orange Julius relented and decided to do things Nancy's way. He re-opened the government for three weeks, until February 15th, his next utterly made-up deadline. He's still insisting the Democrats give him $5.7 billion for his stupid wall, or else he'll take (steal) the money from unspent government funds by declaring a national "emergency." Of course there is no emergency, other than Dolt 45's continued existence. He's trying to shake us down for his vanity project, for a campaign applause line.
"Build the wall" began not as a serious idea but as a mnemonic to remind the Drumpfkopf to talk about immigration -- "wall" being a shorter word, always something helpful to the weak mind of Trump. Declaring an emergency for an obvious non-emergency is a legally dubious method of funding, will face court challenges and probably won't work. Nothing has yet. And if Trump's wall failure makes Ann Coulter angry, great! I'm in favor of anything that makes her mad. It must be right.
