While it’d be ill-advised to ever deem credible claims uttered, written and Tweeted by #45… for discussion purposes ONLY… let’s say paragraph two, of the letter where he fired FBI Director James Comey, wasn’t a flat-out lie… namely… Comey had actually thrice assured #45 he wasn’t under investigation.
#45 fails to realize that ANY such “assurances” coming from ANY FBI agent at ANY time can ONLY mean one thing…
THE EXACT OPPOSITE IS TRUE!!!
A common cop tactic is to pretend to be his prime suspect’s pal… lull him into letting down his guard so he’ll further incriminate himself.
North Dakota legislator, Bernie Satrom possesses… is possessed by… an unsavory attitude. To paraphrase…
He expects wives to be subservient… to serve their husbands breakfast in bed.
Hmmm… does he also want women to…
- Fetch hubby’s slippers?
- Walk two steps behind men in public?
- Never disagree with any disagreeable crap his ilk frequently utters?
- Speak only when spoken to?
Satrom’s unpalatable, out of step, Stepford Wives, Fifties era provincialism clashes with liberated society.
What’s it gonna take to expedite this male sexist dinosaur ‘tude to extinction? Wives loading up hubbies’ breakfast trays with Fifties era, highly saturated, fatty cuisine?
On this national holiday honoring the life and times… remembering the tragic death of Martin Luther King, what could any kind-hearted soul say that’d have any meaning anymore?
We ARE talking about the same nation, which has inexcusably installed a bigoted entity to the highest elective office in the land.
In the next four years, we, who still care, will be shedding tears while witnessing what little progress America has made towards the realization of King’s dream writhing around in an agonizing, life or death, deathbed struggle to survive.
Wonder what Dr. King would say were he alive today?
In all fairness…
Might Forty-Five be truthful in claiming Goldengate is flushable fake news?
Let’s consider one potential source of this leak.
Perhaps whiz kid and X-KGBer, Vladimir Putin, not content with mucking up America’s “free” elections, wants to muck up our smooth transition of power, too?
Wouldn’t a typical tyrant’s strategy be to falsely claim something kinky happened… yank Forty-Five’s chain… depend on a narcissist’s all too predictable overreaction to add credence to the yellow journalism?
And what’ll Putin do next?
Forty-Five shouldn’t be too quick to become BFFs with Putin.
With friends like that… who needs enemies?
On this very day, January 10, 1776, egalitarian Thomas Paine published his pamphlet… Common Sense.
Within those 48 pages, he presented his moral and political beliefs to the 13 Colonies’ inhabitants… i.e., that ALL people are EQUAL… deserve EQUAL RIGHTS and OPPORTUNITIES… that it was time to declare independence from England.
On this day, January 10, 2017, this egalitarian blogger CommonSenseTom, echoes and slightly updates the original Common Sense Tom’s timeless sentiments.
We MUST declare our independence from Russia… MUST NEVER accept Vladimir Putin’s hacking into America’s “free” elections AND attempts to mutate #45 into a string jerkable puppet.
Let’s unearth underhanded Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s recommended, detailed, step-by-step vetting process… i.e. how he and his archconservative, unscrupulous cronies will ensure that each and every one of the incoming admin’s corrupt, cabinet appointees are as unethical (if not more so) than they are.
Step 1. Procure a little, handheld dentist’s mirror.
Step 2. Position mirror under each applicant’s nose.
Step 3. Count to 10.
McConnell’s miscreants will rubberstamp ALL appointees who can fog up the mirror. BTW, applicants who melt down the mirror will so downright MOVE these renegade righties they’ll lose control of their sphincters and…
Propaganda Minister Bill O’Reilly has speculated that numerous big-name entertainers have refused to perform at America’s Inauguration Day festivities because they fear they’ll P.O. their fan base.
Oh really O’Reilly???
You’re overlooking the obvious… you’re such a brainless, rightwing tool you cannot fathom how these performers are righteously indignant.
Don’t you get it Billo?
It’s the B.O. factor NOT the P.O. factor… i.e., these artists loathe the nauseating, polarizing, political stench wafting off the incoming fascist régime.
Beyond the ethics there’re aesthetic concerns, too…
Who’d want to be performing while holding their noses and/or puking upon the world stage?
After spending the better(?) part of this PM listening to AM, rightwing radio talk jocks… I was shocked. They kept spewing anti-liberal vomit as if they’d lost last November. They were awful offal.
One would think these white elephant, broadcasting blowholes would be gleefully blowing their own trumpet re their Republican dominated three-ring circus featuring the…
- ethics barren House and Senate.
- soon-to-be Supreme Extreme Court.
- White House run by a short fused, carelessly Tweeting, environment devastating, deregulating, un-Constitutional, conflict of interest CIC/CEO with an itchy, nuclear, trigger finger.
All who’ll promptly tell any naysaying Democrats to F off!

That’s remarkable considering how this ten-year blogging veteran (MySpace, Xanga & Blogger) has only been @WordPress for 10 months and link to no other social media to self promote.
My thanks go out to all who’ve been clicking those LIKE STARS on my prose and poetry… my fact based op-ed pieces and ventures into fiction… my political and social commentary on life’s events found in story and song (a.k.a. my musical blogcasts).
My invitation goes out to all who’ve yet to “meet” me.
Forgive me for telling you where you can stick your “fatherly” advice to American Democrats… namely… your patronizing statement about growing up and sucking up Hillary Clinton’s loss… thusly…
“You have to know how to lose with dignity.”
You’re classifying OUR behavior as what? Undignified? As if YOUR cyberattacking America is?
No “Dad” Vlad… no matter how often you say, “Nyet”, America’s FBI and CIA recognize how an X-KGBer’s machinations intensified anti-Hillary sentiments to help install his handpicked puppet.
My fatherly advice to you…
Be careful not to get tangled up as you pull Pinocchio’s strings… that’d be undignified.
