Yesterday, I completed an eight year project, one that I didn’t fully realize that I was committing to when I began it. For the past eight years, I have assumed the role of President Obama’s unrequested, undesired, and disapproving poet laureate. For the past eight years, I have been President Obama’s birthday troll. Not that […]

In the autumn of 2008, with the election of Barack Obama imminent, I began writing political satire in verse. Today, I have posted the fiftieth of those satires. I am pleasantly surprised that my inspiration has lasted for so many years and so many pieces. But more than that, I am moved that this fiftieth piece […]

Today is April 22nd. It is also V.I. Lenin’s birthday. It is also, not coincidentally, the day specifically chosen for the grand-daddy holy day of the great state/world religion of Eco-Marxism – Earth Day. It is also the day when I ponder most on when a First Amendment lawsuit will finally be filed which claims (correctly) that […]

This short satire was originally written for last year’s New Year’s Eve. It is a sarcastic toast to the ineffectual and complicit GOP establishment which was about to gain control of both houses of Congress. It is just as relevant to this upcoming New Year’s Eve. So, join me in raising a glass in a milquetoast […]

I just realized that today is the third anniversary of the shooting at Sandy Hook, Connecticut. On the day of the shooting, I lived less than twenty miles from Sandy Hook. Afterward, I lived in Connecticut as the politicians there used the heat of that tragedy to push a gun control agenda. Preview Open
