Me too.

I know this is an incredibly common viewpoint, but I will be very happy when this election is over. I’m excited to go back to a time when Drumpf’s hideous face wasn’t on my TV and news feed friggin’ constantly. Of course, Drumpf has said that in no way is he starting his own news channel. That means that he is absolutely 100% starting his own news channel. Funny since the departure of Ailes has made FOX news seem positively…

The Doors, They Are a’Closin’

In case you hadn’t heard, The Horror Within website will be offline as of Nov. Sadly, I have neither the time nor the money to do this project as well as I want to. Too busy trying to chase the green and be a “real writer” to do all the non-essential horror writing that I want to. In fact, I’m doing almost no writing that I’m not getting decently paid for these days. I had many hopes and plans for…

Ghostbustresses

Finally saw the new Ghostbusters after hearing whinging man-children go on and on about how it’s “unnecessary” and how they’re only making it with women to be “PC.” Because as I’ve explained before–letting ladies star in a movie is a special gift from the men who run the world. Now that we got our lady-movie, we should all sit down, shut up, know our places, and stop making such an emotional fuss. This post will have major spoilers, so scroll…

Holy Flurking Snit!

Talking about politics is getting ridiculous, even for those of us who don’t feel a need to find euphemisms for the word PUSSY. If you still think Drumpf is the sort of person who should run the country…it doesn’t matter. You’re probably not reading this post anyway. Why would you? I do find it frightening how many people (roughly 98% men) are still twisting themselves like balloon animals in their efforts to excuse Drumpf’s more rapey escapades. Because I don’t…

The Peril of a President Pence

In all of our (totally justified) horror over The Donald, we seem to be forgetting something important. Yes, Drumpf is a racist misogynist, a master of demagoguery…we know he’s the personification of mammon, the truest representation of greed, avarice, gluttony for what passes for glory in his world. He’s also woefully inept, a blithering, blustering incompetent. He can’t run a casino, let alone a country. At all. Not even a little. Remember when we all thought Dubya was too dumb…

Racism: More than pointy hats and N-words

Like many of you, I have a family. And within that family, there are a wide range of people who believe things I think are patently batshit. My favorite Aunt told me she’d never vote Bernie because “he’s a socialist.” I have a cousin who swears the min wage shouldn’t be raised because it mostly applies to kids working part time, and that Citizens United is a “free speech” issue. I enjoy spirited debates when I encounter beliefs like that,…
