As sure as Springsteen has had some work done, Fridays are a mainstay when it comes to your week, and is known in certain parts of Canada and Rhode Island as the Gateway to The Weekend, or “The Day Before Saturday”.

In that respect it is the single most important day of the week, and is as well-loved as Monday’s are vehemently loathed.

“Loathe Not, Thy Friday, For It Is The Day Of Relief. The Day of Rejoicing. The Day You Have Worked Towards All Week. A Day of Respite and Rest. A Day of Joints Shots Netflix and Chill for Tomorrow You Either Have to Mow the Lawn or Shovel Snow You Poor Bastard” – Saint Daryl … Patron Saint of Stealing 3rd and Inspirational Gibberish Continue reading

Roxanne Tellier – Lying Liars, Bullies and Cowards

Posted in Opinion, politics, Review with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 6, 2019 by segarini

I’ve written before about the dangers of elected officials lying to the public. Twice, in fact. In modern politics, it seems that lying in public has replaced any pretence of integrity or any desire to have one’s tenure be remembered with respect.

Lying breaks our faith in others – once we know that someone will lie to us, we can never again truly trust that person. And it doesn’t matter why the lie was told, because the lie reveals something very important about the liar; the liar is a coward.

Roxanne Tellier – Finally!

” There is something almost arbitrary about this scandal instigating impeachment, given the barbarity of Trump and his administration. On a scale that includes keeping immigrant children in cages, I’m not quite sure where to rank the president’s pressuring the leader of a foreign country to investigate a political rival’s son. But it also doesn’t really matter. Impeachment is long overdue. If Trump’s call with Zelinsky is what gets us there, so be it.”   Alex Shephard, The New Republic

I’m sitting here staring at my screen trying to collect my thoughts. All that I was going to write…..gone. A stroll out the backyard shows me my plants are slightly parched and the racoons are shitting IN my grapes (and shitting out grape seeds). Pots are knocked over, plants flattened and the watering cans have been dumped yet again. Racoons……drunk again on fermented grappa.
