Donald Trump has a simple playbook: If you want it, take it. If it’s illegal or immoral, hire lawyers to bury it. If you don’t know what’s what, make something up. This philosophy has served him well until now, but it’s kind of hard to bullshit your way through a worldwide pandemic.

I have discovered the answer to my occasional paralyzing attacks of “the world has gone mad” — a mani/pedi. Why should women have all the fun?

The Astros won their championship in 2017, the first year of the Trump presidency. What that presidency and the way it was attained said to the world is that you can cheat, have people know about it, and still be declared a winner. At least in America.

By Bob Gaydos
Trump, if he’s truly the chosen one, to whom does he pray and for what? I ask for millions of Americans because Rick Perry tells me my future and that of the planet lie in the hands of this “imperfect” person.

Kale? Quinoa? How about Kefir, Kamut?

November 12th, 2019

By Bob Gaydos
For the record, I eat kale and quinoa and avoid fried foods as much as possible. I think that’s smart. There’s nothing wrong with being smart, although Republicans have been trying to suggest otherwise for some time. It’s a bully’s weapon. Let them drink kefir.
