Florida Taliban


These words hurt my heart … and it’s the sad truth!! … “Right-wing extremists are encroaching upon innocent victims and insisting they be controlled by their fundamentalists dogma. These extremists are religious nut jobs who abandoned facts and science a long time ago in favor of cultist beliefs.

Yes, my friends … Florida is a lost cause. I also hear Afghanistan is pretty bad.”

Right-wing extremists are encroaching upon innocent victims and insisting they be controlled by their fundamentalists dogma. These extremists are religious nut jobs who abandoned facts and science a long time ago in favor of cultist beliefs. Their outdated culture is used to oppress women and threatens the lives of millions. For these extreme conservatives, their anti-science cult leaders are the heroes and the villains are scientists, doctors, nurses, and educators.

Many have given up on the area and the innocent and enlightened are encouraged to take their families and flee for their lives before it’s too late.

Yes, my friends…Florida is a lost cause. I also hear Afghanistan is pretty bad.

The Taliban is on the verge of retaking Afghanistan after losing near-complete control two decades ago. A lot of people are blaming President…

I have been pondering this article for a while. I have been using the term The Party and Death and Fascism to describe the GOP and people like Trump, Ron DeSantis, Greg Abbot, Ran Paul, many other GOP political figures and their propagandists on Fox News, OAN, and Newsmax on my Facebook and Twitter accounts, and in the process I have been developing this article.

I have watched in horrid fascination as the Death Cult of the Trumpified Republican Party and its various propaganda outlets, especially Fox News, have been on a crusade against responsible people trying to keep people from being infected and dying from the Delta Variant of the Coronavirus- 19 Virus. The most frightening part of this sorry exploitive campaign is that it targets Trump’s most ardent supporters. No longer are the people with obvious risks for COVID most of the new…

AGT ~Jimmy Herrod


PURE IMAGINATION!! … I’ve beeen watching!! … “Jimmie Herrod put forth his unique rendition that had me spellbound.”

By Hook Or By Book

I have loved Pure Imagination since I first heard Gene Wilder sing it in 1971 in the movie Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. I’ve heard other singers cover it over the years, but for me no one came close to capturing the magic of Wilder’s performance. That is, until Tuesday night, when AGT contestant, Jimmie Herrod put forth his unique rendition that had me spellbound. In case you missed it, here it is.

And here is the original which honestly, never gets old does it?
