Donnie's Impending Temple of Doom

Good Day World!

The last time we looked in on Donny Little-Hands (the clown masquerading as our president), he was pardoning a convicted racist when Hurricane Harvey hit.

Since then he's visited Texas to see how bad things were on the ground after Harvey's devastation. In true Trump fashion he turned that event into a farce - gleefully noting all the people that came to see him.

Oh yea. There weren't any signs of devastation where Rump's press conference was held. And he didn't explore any further with officials.

The next day he bragged to reporters how he saw the devastation up close.

Meanwhile...

Our Liar-In-Chief has entered into the valley of investigations and into a Temple of Doom of his own making.

Obstruction of justice. That's the sign above the door of the Temple. Stump entered months ago.
His greeter was special counsel Robert Mueller who's leading an investigation into ties between his campaign and Russia.

Apparently the investigation is heating up in the Temple. News reports stating that Trump signed a deal for building a Trump Tower in Moscow - during the campaign - have emerged.

Financial ties are also among the obstacles Hump must navigate in the Temple of Doom.

Unlike the movie, where the hero gets out of the deadly Temple, Donnie isn't going to be so lucky.

Time for me to walk on down the road...

Very Short Stories, Sorry-Assed Congress, and How's Your Day?

Good Day World!

Who expects much to change in Congress when the clowns reconvene next week?

Show of hands.

Not me, that's for sure. The Republican majority in Congress has translated to zero progress. Not one major legislation passed. For eight years GOP leaders swore to repeal and replace Obamacare.

We all know how that turned out. Now, we have to hope they can pass a spending bill to keep the government operating. If Trump tries to tie his wall fantasy to that bill there's going to be a problem.

Donny Little-Hands has been mumbling about shutting the government down if he doesn't get his way. Will someone please slap that pouting man child and tell him to get real?

Moving on.

I started another blog called Return To As It Stands where I indulge myself in writing very short stories everyday. 
I do my best to surprise and entertain readers within the space of 800-900 words.

With Titles like, The First, and Last Dinner, Future Shock: The Test,  and A Day At The Operating Table, I'll  keep you guessing on how they end. Check it out.

Moving on.

How was your day? Care to talk about it? I have a comment section below if you do.

I just want to say that I love writing in it's many forms, and both of my blogs are labors of love.Thanks for stopping by.

Time for me to walk on down the road...

Celebrating Our 43rd Anniversary With A Few Tips

Good Day World!

My world changed for the better on August 31st, 1974. That's when Shirley and I got married.

A few thoughts on staying together:

* Always communicate, no matter how angry you are at the moment. Never go to bed angry. Period. The anger just simmers and boils over the next day if you don't.

* Mutual respect. This attitude is often overlooked. Even when you don't agree with a stance your partner has taken on a subject, never turn it into an argument.

* Don't let politics divide you, especially in the Age of Trumpism. There's no subject worth that. If politics are an issue, choose not to discuss them.

* Give each other space. There's nothing wrong with pursuing different pastimes separately as long as they are within reason and don't lead to separation. There's a fine line here.

* The best advise I can give you is be friends. Best friends. Don't let that ever change. 

* Make a habit of finding time to pursue joint interests. Anything from going to yard-sales to going to concerts qualifies.

* Finally, life is too short. Try to live each day to the fullest as loving partners.

Time for me to walk on down the road...

I'm back! After Some Tech Challenges 'As It Stands' is Back Online!

Good Day World!

I won't even go into why this blog has been inaccessible since July 20th - it's just too complicated.

The good news is I'm back, and will resume sharing my humble opinions with you.

In the gap between July 20 and now, I created another blog: Return Of As It Stands.

It features very short stories. I mean like only 800 or 900 words in length. But each packs a punch in a way that you won't soon forget.
I encourage you to check it out.

Meanwhile, returning to my opinionated self, I have a few quick observations:

Classic Trump - He makes Hurricane Harvey into an opportunity to fawn over the people who came to see him when he and wifey visited Texas. 

Some people are saying the pardoning of Sheriff Arpaio (the scourge of Latinos everywhere) is a prelude to pardoning his family and pals from any collusion charges with Russia.

Trump's handling of North Korea is enough to make atheists religious. 

I'm going to let you go for now. Take care.
