From the recent conventions you must agree that Republicans have nothing but bad ideas. And the Democrats have no ideas. Indeed, democracy is the recurrent suspicion that more than half of the people are right more than half of the time. And I’ve come to believe the only difference between Republicans and Democrats is Democrats allow the poor to be corrupt, too…

I have a confession. I have been a Republican – at least in my lustful heart — since birth. But in truth, I have never found a Republican to vote for. It’s not that I don’t trust them. I trust … Continue reading

I am not politically correct. And never intend to be. I am for speaking up. But as I often admonished my kids: If you’re talking, you ain’t listening. If you ain’t listening, you ain’t learning. And if you ain’t learning there can never be any peace… So don’t peee-cccssee me off!…

Apparently Frank is in need of a mental enema. At a recent reunion of venerable old friends Frank, who’s once cerebral refrains roared from beneath his once-thick-mane, has apparently gotten as clogged-up as his jowls and bowels. He started howling … Continue reading

We come into the world with nothing and when we leave we have nothing. In between there’s a lot of stoopid people robbing, pillaging, stealing and misspending our tax dollars…And boy, do I feel stoopid.

I don’t understand a great deal when it comes to money. Especially taxes. And obviously I am not alone. Even Einstein once uttered that the hardest thing in the world to understand is income taxes. With me, it’s just about … Continue reading

Next to the circus there ain’t nothing that packs up and tears out of town any quicker than the Christmas spirit. But commercially speaking, if there wasn’t Xmas we’d have to invent it — even if we do forget its true meaning: you know, the birth of Santa

When my last ex-wife and I would celebrate Christmas – and Chanukah – I would plead with her each and every year NOT to buy more gifts for the kids than could fill a supertanker. At least keep the massive … Continue reading

The price of frozen yogurt is just another example of the farce of supply and demand. Consider this: Two of its most important ingredients are air and water

Why is it that a little man with a plan can’t get a loan, but we give Wall Street, oil thieves and foreign potentates more money than they can bury in offshore accounts?…. Because a man with a plan is considered a crank – until his idea succeeds.

At one booth in one of the many festivals and regattas swelling the city last weekend fat folks and thin folks and folks who might as well be naked seeing it didn’t really make much difference, all gathered in large … Continue reading

Most everything is a lie. But so what? We’ve got to believe in something — as long as it makes us happy…. Now ain’t that the truth.

A ‘happy’ couple was visiting me one night. They wondered if I had brought home any of that great vodka from Russia where I was mostly working and living at the time. They chirped like mynah birds as they extolled … Continue reading
