Should I deck him? He really deserves it.

Of course, I won't. He's my same age, but a frail diabetic and I'm in pretty decent shape for an old man. I'd never hit him although he's threatened ME with a knockout twice now. AS IF!

I'm talking about my next door neighbor. A trumpian, as you might have already guessed.

In this latest instance he and I were chatting about the result of the LSU - Alabama game (we're both LSU fans) and the subject of one of the CBS commentators came up.

Me: "I agreed with Gary Danielson. There was no excuse for that last touchdown by Alabama. What were our coaches thinking?"

Neighbor: "That's true, but Gary Danielson is an idiot."

Me: "I rather like him. He's smart and objective."

Neighbor (a hot head who can't bear to be contradicted): "HE'S AN IDIOT. That's a fact! You don't know anything about sports!"

Me: "Well, those are not facts but opinions. And you're entitled to them. Even though they're wrong."

Neighbor (apparently aware that I don't care much for his trumpism): "I'm sick and tired of liberals liking the wrong things and the wrong people!"

Me: "Well, I don't like a particular racist Russian puppet pervert crook.... but you do."

Neighbor: "YOU CAN'T CALL ME THOSE THINGS! I'll knock your fucking head off!"

Me: "Well, that ain't gonna happen. And I didn't call you those things, but that's what you voted for and what you still like."

Neighbor: "YOU'RE A DAMN....."

I didn't catch the end of that flak because I got into my car to drive to the grocery store.


Most interesting thing about this story? My browser here is trying to capitalize "trumpian" and "trumpism" and "trump" every time I type it in.

An LSU fan here with an observation about right wing cognitive dissonance.

No, scratch that... it's just plain hypocrisy.

In this case I'm talking about reactions to a comment by head coach Ed Orgeron inside the LSU locker room after the Tigers' big victory at Alabama.

In a moment meant only for his celebrating team, Orgeron shouted about finally catching Alabama and about surpassing them in the future... and then followed that up with "They say 'Roll Tide'? Fuck them!"

Locker room talk if ever I've heard such.

And, of course, Alabama fans are outraged this morning about LSU's "classless", "low life", "potty mouth", "infantile" head coach.

Well, you know where I'm going with this. These are the same people who voted for donald trump and cheered him yesterday inside their stadium.

I say fuck them.

By the way, I would still love Ed Orgeron if he shot somebody in broad daylight on Bourbon Street.

Well, not really.

Tuscaloosa is not a big city. The LSU game will double its population and quadruple its traffic.

His presence there will cause massive traffic disruption before the game. It's all about him, everything else be damned.

But actually my primary purpose for starting this thread was to say


Facebook tells me that it soon will not support my Microsoft browser (Edge)

To which I say I Microsoft is more valuable to me than is Facebook.

"We won’t support this browser soon. For a better experience, we recommend using another browser."

Well, then, fuck off. I REALLY don't need Facebook.

It occurs to me that without the whistleblower Ukraine STILL would not have its aid

our Congress voted for them.

This is why we need term limits, folks.

If a Congressperson or Senator is limited by law to two or fewer terms he might actually find the gumption to do the right thing... i.e. protecting the country over himself.... instead of trying to hold on to a lifetime gig.

Pence, Pompeo, trump, dominionism

It's a sad fact of life that republicanism, though definitionally not religious, is in political manifestation almost identical to dominionism. The love of money above all else lends itself to the same methods of exploitation as does the belief that Jesus is coming to forgive all sins and clean up everything, anyway. Pence, Pompeo, trump... the first two believe that they're doing the commanded work, no matter the means, and the latter just wants the means, no matter what.

Sorry, folks... but we need to start teaching our children that certain notions are supreme nonsense and that they're killing us.

Beautiful job by Don Lemon here, confronting a shady John Kasich

As a fellow Baton Rougean I am extremely proud of Don Lemon:


Don't know how to post a photo inside a post

A simple salute to my dog

I rejoice in her company.
