Beto O’Rourke for Senate

Please pardon this aside into US politics, but down here in Texas, Sen. Ted Cruz (R) is losing a lot of ground to the inspiring and progressive challenger, Beto O’Rourke (D) who, by golly, might just take his seat. Great article on this at Politico.

Bawdy Weather

a carnal hungry chilly breeze
blows down the lane do what it please
cold fingers creepy up my blouse

and down my panties behind the house
trump my ta-tas he grope my dinkies
lickity split up and down my pinkies

I say weatherman! make it stop!
he say what girl, I ain’t no cop
I ask him isn’t it your duty?

he say “girl don’t you shake no booty
arctic harveys will blow on down
to pinch your cheeks and run your town”

I called that boy a punk and left
to find my sisters, all bereft
we got together and called the news

fuck you, weather: go sing the blues

Kung Fu

I fondly remember the 1970s TV series in which a Chinese monk with mad martial arts skills wanders the American Southwest where he is repeatedly attacked by Trump supporters*, each of whom he soundly thrashes while being outnumbered and outgunned. He always connected with the decent people he met, always taught kindness and respect for others, and turned to violence only as a last resort.

The only thing better than watching Kung Fu is watching Kung Fu with Jennifer Aniston.

* that is, they would be Trump supporters if they lived in current times.

Things That Go Trump In The Night

Hillary Clinton has spent years in the trenches doing the hard work needed to prepare herself to lead our nation. In this race, at this time, she deserves your vote.

The Dallas Morning News has announced that it is endorsing a Democrat for president for the first time in 75 years. The editorial spends plenty of time on the lady’s warts and missteps throughout her long political career, but none the less. She’s the only choice, they say. That horrid thing that goes bump in this long night of the political soul, has moved mountains in a sense, and exposed for all to see an active decay in that portion of the electorate that rallies around a tough talking, openly hateful, self obsessed ignoramus. “Finally! Someone in main stream public life is fronting our hatred of dark skinned others, government in general, and the Clintons in particular!”

Thank you, Dallas Morning News, for the push-back. Now lets go out there and elect the living f*ck out of Hillary Rodham Clinton so we can return to the good old days of wringing our hands about gridlock and corruption in Washington. It ain’t much, but it beats a full on fascist dictatorship led by a deranged narcissist with a horrifying penchant for speaking casually about the use of nuclear weapons.
