Today, the "US" dropped the MOAB (Mother of all Bombs) - the largest non-nuclear bomb ever deployed in Afghanistan, ostensibly against ISIS-K. Of course, they tell us that they "took every precaution to avoid civilian casualties." Of course they did, like they did in this airstrike in Syria (that the administration has been silent about) that hit Syrian allies and killed 18 people! As a bit of a lighthearted diversion, I invited my Facebook page to weigh in with their favorite euphemism for "Trump." As you know, I prefer the contraction of Donald Trump - D'ump. But there were some great [...]

“The fossilized remains of George Wallace are alive and well and walking around in Alabama. And Kansas.”
Another snark-filled guest post by the one, the only Will Durst: THE NEW TAR PITS Kind of sad being forced to watch the death struggle of these modern- day dinosaurs. Responsible parents should keep their kids from peering over the Plexiglas railing into the tar pits below to see the huge lumbering antediluvian beasts frenziedly dig themselves deeper into the sticky morass that is gay marriage. Not a sight for the queasy or squeamish.
