Donald Trump’s Tremendous Charities

Donald Trump's Tremendous CharitiesTrump would clean out the “take a penny, leave a penny” tray before donating his actual money to charity. His charitable shenanigans have been well documented in a series of stories by David Farenthold. There’s also the grifting of campaign funds to pay companies owned by himself and his family.

If he ends up winning, it’ll be a long-con gone wrong.

The Undecided ZoneYou are about to enter another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of undecided minds. Nobody reading this is an undecided voter. They are a mystery to me, and the outcome of the election depends on the handful of them in the states that are up for grabs.

Yes, I know it’s a cookbook.

Fall TV Preview

Fall TV PreviewThere’s a lot of good television coming this fall, but I’m going to miss it to watch the final weeks of election coverage. There might be a day or two to binge-watch everything I missed before the 2020 coverage begins in earnest, but I’m not counting on it.

The Self-Appointed Protest Referee

The Self-Appointed Protest RefereeColin Kaepernick is protesting and drawing attention to the epidemic of unprosecuted police brutality by sitting out (kneeling out since this cartoon was drawn) the national anthem. Everyone outraged about his free speech is talking about patriotism, respecting veterans and arcane flag etiquette instead of systemic racism because it’s easier to change the subject.

The Santa Clara Police Department proved Kaepernick was correct by throwing a tantrum and explicitly stating they have the power to choose who they protect and serve. Hopefully the protest continues and the discussion expands beyond Kaepernick to the actual issue of police brutality he’s trying to highlight.
