An Unkempt Lawn: Thoughts From The Weeds

  • ShibaSwap About To Drop?

    ShibaSwap About To Drop?

    Anyone who has been paying attention to the crypto world has almost certainly noticed the explosion of meme coins following the lead of DOGE. I’ll admit that I never thought DOGE would go anywhere, but it did. I considered it a sell signal for all crypto when someone told me they were buying DOGE, which […]

  • Big Tech Wants To Control Your Conversation

    Big Tech Wants To Control Your Conversation

    I know, I know. Tell us something we did not already know. A Twitter whistleblower captured a video of Jack Dorsey, the company’s CEO, admitting that they are working to root out opinions that they think are undesirable. He wants to claim that it is a safety issue, but it is really a censorship issue. […]

  • Political Rage Machine: January 6 — Epiphany

    Political Rage Machine: January 6 — Epiphany

    Thanks to some stupid people who thought storming the Capitol building would be a good idea, the Democrats have found another thing to rage about. Rage, they did. They even impeached President Trump for a second time, after making numerous threats to have him thrown in prison for a crime he did not commit. The […]

  • Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube vs. Rumble, MeWe, and Parler

    Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube vs. Rumble, MeWe, and Parler

    Nobody will read this. I won’t post it to social media because Facebook and everything like it is garbage for the soul. Let me start by saying what is good about social media: We can keep up with friends and family around the country. We can also connect with news outlets and like-minded people in […]

  • No Vaccine Until End of 2021 – Remember?

    No Vaccine Until End of 2021 – Remember?

    Let me remind you, now that the vaccine has been announced. The dishonesty of the mainstream media was on full display this past year. They didn’t even pretend. The mask is off: of the media, that is. Just wait until January when they start praising Biden’s response. You won’t hear any credit for President Trump, […]

  • Why I Hate Libertarians

    Why I Hate Libertarians

    Libertarians cut the vote. A Libertarian would cut off his nose to spite his face. They think they are acting on principle by running presidential candidates, but the truth is that they are simply taking votes away from primarily Republican candidates. Libertarians never win, because their views are too extreme for most people. The closest […]

  • Poll Workers Cheating or Bad Video?

    Poll Workers Cheating or Bad Video?

    I’m as upset as the next guy and gal about the way this election, Trump vs. Biden, has gone. From the lousy poll numbers leading up to the election, which were so far off as to be laughable, to the controversy surrounding the mail-in ballots, it has been the worst election I can remember — […]

  • Pizza — What About It

    Pizza — What About It

    There are two things that Chicagoans and New Yorkers agree on. Where they live, they have the best pizza. New Yorkers are intolerable, only because they live in a city so large that they never have to escape their bubble and see other parts of the country. Chicagoans can do that, too, but they’re a […]

  • The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

    The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

    The entire United States had the opportunity to watch live action versions of Lewis Carroll’s famous duo take the stage in Cleveland, Ohio last night. While I could use the quotes from this train wreck for dozens of future columns, let’s focus on one issue that slid down to the bottom of the debate list […]

  • Like a Mutt That Won’t Stop Barking

    Like a Mutt That Won’t Stop Barking

    Do you remember the days, back in the 1990s, of the AOL (America Online) CD-ROMs? They came in the mail at least half a dozen times, as I can remember. They were available in mass quantities for free at any electronics or computer big box store. Sometimes, even grocery stores had displays proclaiming – “GET […]
