How Politicians and the Media make Bullshit Happen

Former President Barack Obama gave an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg in The Atlantic this month where he talked about why he thinks American politics has become so bad. It’s bullshit from beginning to end. But it’s easy to say that something is bullshit, so let me show you how Obama and Goldberg spread bullshit about […]

Fucking Liars Man

I was talking to a Black friend about the election. I told her I didn’t vote because I didn’t like any candidate. She agreed, and said, “If I had voted, I would have voted for Trump.” I asked her why. “Because he says what he’s really thinking. Biden and Harris with their pro-Black stuff just […]

Kim Ng

After my last post, it feel nice to have some good baseball news. The Miami Marlins have hired Kim Ng as their general manager. She is the first woman to hold the position, not just in baseball, but in any of the major North American men’s sports. It’s a big deal, and great to see. […]

It’s Hard To Be A Red Sox Fan Right Now

I’ve been a Red Sox (@RedSox) fan my whole life. It’s inherited, on my mom’s side. I remember the first game I ever saw in person. The Sox were playing the California Angels at Fenway. Yaz was still on the team then. The crowd went crazy every time he came up to bat. He hit […]

Why Is Saturday Night Live Replacing Its Cast?

This has been bugging me ever since the show cast Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump. On a show like SNL, getting face time is the key to moving forward in show business. Part of the reason we’re still watching Will Ferrell movies is because of his role on SNL as George Bush (who can forget […]

Credit Still Makes Zero Sense to Me

The pandemic has given me more free time than I’ve had since being a kid. It’s given me time to think, and I keep coming back to the credit system. I don’t get it. At all. As I understand it, you need good credit to buy things that you can’t afford with cash in hand. […]

Scott’s Tots

I was talking to my drug dealer a couple of weeks ago about his plans for the future. He wants to open up a music studio, but he needs money to make that happen. “I want to get a $10,000 loan, but my credit isn’t great,” he said. “I got ways to pay it back, […]

I Voted, Whoop-di-doo

I voted today. That’s no shock. I’ve voted in every election, primary, referendum, and ballot question since I turned 18. Voting is very, very important to me. Every time before today, I’ve been an enthusiastic voter. Today, I don’t think I could have been less enthusiastic. I’m lucky I made it to the polls myself. […]

I’m Just Angry

Here’s why. What the fuck has a Democrat done for me?- I’ve lived in Democrat-controlled cities in a state that has been controlled by Democrats for most of my life. Yet the schools I attended were segregated. My neighborhoods have been segregated. I’ve watched my friends and family die in CT in ways that my […]

People Are Not Stupid

This might be the teacher in me talking, but it really bugs me when I hear people discussing politics and someone says, “People are stupid,” or “Americans are stupid.” First of all, I don’t think anyone is stupid or incapable of thinking. Secondly, I think most people understand their own lives and how they feel […]
