Celebrating freedom without understanding sacrifice, or solidarity, cannot be what the 4th of July is all about – not anymore. I mean, really, Bay Area? More than 20 fires last night, all because you could not simply chill. That is some willful, stubborn ignorance…. Will some of y’all ever learn?
Time for a little math. Previously on the pandemic, we were more than a quarter of the year into a global shutdown brought on by the relentless COVID-19 novel coronavirus that’s become one of the banes of our 2020 existence. Now, less than two weeks from the start of Month 4 of our ongoing season […]
You have to admit, the schkarenfreude – you can do it…just put your lips together and go: the sch-karen-freude – is hilarious. It could all be so simple, but y’all rather make it so gosh darn hard. You get what you give, America, so come correct or you will leave unbalanced, because it is comeuppance […]
Later tonight, San Francisco’s Pink Triangle is gonna shine. Pink Triangle Silver Jubilee Trivia Alert! For the first time in its 25-year history, and on account of the many restrictions and cancellations brought on by the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic, and in true the-show-must-go fashion, the annual tradition has gotten a special makeover and its […]
If we all had gotten our heads out of our collective overprivileged asses months ago, we might, just might be well on our to have widely managed this COVID-19 global-pandemic crisis in a much more efficient kind of way. A life-saving kind of way. Will we ever learn?
I mean if these friendly Castro men could wear their masks to walk their neighborhood in solidarity with their neighbors during this pandemic, so can y’all. Make it fashun, lie to yourself (you know, like everyone else has had to for centuries about other more pressing matters) and tell yourself it’s all a fun game, […]
It was before 8 this morning, when I hit Broadway on Taylor, when I clocked it, even through my bandana mask. The stench of caucacity was oh-so-strong, and yet I led with, “Good morning. Please…don’t forget to wear your masks.” And you know it, the athleisure-clad, coffe-cup-carrying unmasked Mama Karen turned around all like, “Oh, […]
You know I been Team Amy McGrath. From what little I know about the retired U.S. Marine Corps lieutenant colonel and, say, her vision re: foreign policy and national security (which minces no words where standing up to aggressive foreign powers is concerned, for instance), I think she would be a fine choice to unseat […]
Nice try. Now back it up. Today the Supreme Court of the United States surprised again, after it ruled on another eagerly anticipated decision, one concerning the Barack Obama-era DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) American immigration policy, which since summer 2012 has provided close to 700,000 (known) young DREAMers respite from deportation. Swinging toward […]
Notre-Dame de Paris caught fire last year, and you wanna know what my memory of that day is? Urgh, the old coot I used to enjoy helping at the grocery store where I used to work, until that day. Him, his blue hat, and his loud and misguided Made-in-the-USA Islamophobia. Old (Caucacious) Man Chad. A […]
