Trump Administration Abuses Children

The latest tactic of the Trump administration to stop illegal crossings of their southern border is horrific. It is child abuse, pure and simple. As most of you probably already know, the US is now separating all parents and children when they SUSPECT the parents crossed the border illegally. Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the announcement with pride, apparently having no issues with his decision... read more

Kakapo Lego (plus Tweets)

Regular readers will be aware I’m a Lego fan. I didn’t have any when I was a kid, but I’ve bought some as an adult. Nieces and nephews coming along was really cool, because it gave me an excuse to buy a lot more. It’s amazing how much of it stays at my place … (For when they visit, you understand. ) Now I’m hoping I’ll have a new reason to buy Lego – a Lego... read more

Russia, Crimea, Putin, and Trump (plus Tweets)

I was about to go back to work on a Proper Post. Then I remembered I wanted to change my Pinned Tweet (see below in Cat Tweets). On opening Twitter I found some pretty cool tweets and decided I’d like to share them with you. We’ve been discussing Trump’s attitude to Russia and Putin a lot in the comment threads in the last few days. The reason is obvious of course – Trump is... read more

Donald Trump, Spygate, and What Happens Next

I hope everyone reading this knows, or at least suspects, that President Trump’s talking point that the FBI put a spy in his campaign is a lie. There is no Spygate. Spygate is lie-gate (as someone else said, but I can’t remember who). Spygate is a conspiracy theory. It has no basis in fact. It began around three weeks ago when Trump, via his faithful Twitter account, made the announcement that... read more

Guest Post: ‘Winning Elections’ by Linda Calhoun

Winning Elections by Linda Calhoun A few months ago I went back and reread the GOPAC memo, written in 1993 by then Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. It addressed “the way to win elections”. In a nutshell, it advised candidates and their handlers to use pejorative adjectives to describe their opponents, and soaring, “patriotic” adjectives to describe themselves and their party. Gingrich outlined several... read more

Roseanne Barr is Racist (plus Tweets)

I wasn’t going to write about this. But, there are heaps of cool tweets today and I need a topic. The stuff I’m writing already is too long to head a Tweets Post, so Roseanne Barr it is. I didn’t watch her show way back when. It didn’t appeal. I tried one episode a few months ago of the comeback, but I didn’t find it funny or enjoyable, or anything else. So that was it. Give... read more

Cats versus Dogs (plus Tweets)

Well, it’s been a while, and this still isn’t a Proper Post. However, you deserve for me to make an effort. There have been multiple prompts in social media today (even more than usual) relating to cats and dogs, so, Cats vs Dogs it is. I’m hoping to get a decent post out shortly. There is stuff I’m working on, but I’m struggling at the moment. There are several reasons... read more

Geoff Robson: Lying for Jesus and Wrong about Richard Dawkins

Richard Dawkins gave a couple of talks in New Zealand recently. He’s here promoting his new book, Science in the Soul. As usual that brought people out of the woodwork with the message the atheists are either stupid, lying, or just plain evil. None ever sees the irony in their statements. One prime example is Geoff Robson. He wrote an article for one of our leading internet news sites, stuff.co.nz,... read more

The Problem of Spam (plus Tweets)

I get a lot of weird stuff in the spam section of the comments for Heather’s Homilies. It seems to go through cycles that generally match what I’m writing about, or even what’s in the tweets. One thing’s for sure, you and I would go nuts if it wasn’t for the spam filter! There are dozens per day. I usually don’t even look at them – just scroll to the bottom and... read more

Trump is a Fu€ki₦g Moron re JCPOA

I can’t believe this is happening. Well I can. But I held onto hope overnight that someone would talk him out of this. However, I awoke to the news that President Trump has actually announced that he’s pulling the US out of the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) aka the Iran Nuclear Agreement. The man is a complete fu€ki₦g moron. Trump’s announcement in support of his decision... read more
