Marijuana vs Tobacco: Which is Worse?

Marijuana is fast becoming an accepted drug.  In fact, smoking marijuana is considered by most young people to be “cool” while smoking cigarettes is frowned upon.

Children are born with a natural desire to succeed.  Ask a group of children what they want to be when they grow up.  They will answer, “astronaut, doctor, fireman, teacher, etc.” without any hesitation.  There is never a doubt that their chosen professions might be unattainable.  However, smoking marijuana will make those dreams much harder if not impossible to achieve.   Continue reading “Marijuana vs Tobacco: Which is Worse?”

Saint Maxine

Maxine Waters never loses an opportunity to urge her followers to keep up their harassment of members of the Trump Administration.

Last week, she took aim at the president again.  “Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booted out of restaurants,” she crowed as the crowd erupted, “who have protesters taking up at their house, who say, ‘No peace, no sleep. No peace, no sleep!’”

She went on, “We’re going to win this battle because while you try and quote the Bible, Jeff Sessions (she blames the attorney general for enforcing immigration law) and others, you really don’t know the Bible…God is on OUR Side! On the side of the children, on the side of what’s right!”

Waters has never been shy about using God, the church or little children to rabble rouse in order to increase her name recognition, her coffers or advance one of her pet projects, the latest being open borders. Continue reading “Saint Maxine”

Bigoted Restauranteurs, Unhinged Politicians, and Facebook Rants

When bigoted Stephanie Wilkinson asked Trump Press Secretary Sarah Sanders to leave her restaurant Friday it touched off a media feeding frenzy and, predictably, caused some political crazies to leave their filthy, hate-filled nests.

The most notable was Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) who went where no elected representative should ever be allowed to go.  Continue reading “Bigoted Restauranteurs, Unhinged Politicians, and Facebook Rants”

Don’t Be Fooled by Border Hysterics

Is De Niro the New Jane Fonda?

For decades, the political class, as well as other influential people, have observed the maxim “politics stops at the water’s edge.” This simply means that when a president is dealing with a matter of national importance abroad, the criticism stops until the crisis is averted or, at the very least, he is back safety inside the confines of the United States.

With President Trump, that is no longer the case.  The political atmosphere in Washington is so toxic that Democrats, and some members of his own party, feel free to take pot shots at him even as he deals with issues that could avert nuclear war.

However, when Robert De Niro let his distaste of this president spill over at the Tony Awards Sunday night on the eve of his summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, it not only broke the mold of civility but raised bad taste to a level unseen in prime time, even on an awards show.  While De Niro’s  “F – – – Trump” comment was deleted by an alert executive monitoring the program at CBS, the actor’s unscripted comment went viral prompting outrage from the right and the left.   Continue reading “Is De Niro the New Jane Fonda?”

Supreme Court Guilty of Dereliction of Duty

In sports, a tie is said to be like kissing your sister.

The Supreme Court decision Masterpiece Bakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, a case where a baker was punished for refusing to make a cake for a gay wedding, was something like that.  It was unrewarding for both sides.

The 7-2 decision ruled in favor of the baker, saying the state commission did not treat him fairly when it disparaged his religious beliefs.   Also, the Court found the commission showed an obvious bias against this baker because it had upheld the right of other bakers to refuse to bake cakes with anti-gay themes.  Unfortunately, the Court did not rule on the underlying issues in this case.  Continue reading “Supreme Court Guilty of Dereliction of Duty”

The (anything but) Center for Sex Positive Culture — the dark underworld of anything-goes sex

The Center for Sex Positive Culture is now hiding in plain sight in Pioneer Square, a historic district in downtown Seattle.  The grand opening for the new location, formally the Wet Spot, is this Saturday but don’t try to find the address.  It’s a secret known only to its members who pay a yearly fee to join.

Welcome to a land of gender identity on steroids.  It’s an underworld where kinky sex meets the circus — the weirder the better.   If you are having trouble juggling, male, female, homosexual, bisexual, transexual and non-binary these days; put polyamorous and pansexual in your pipe and smoke it.
