My Next Sneakers are Liberal, Sexy, and Piss of Religious Folks

January 17, 2017

See link below for article about how this ad pisses off an Australian Christian group and what they’re doing about it. Me? I’m going to buy Australia’s Volley sneakers when my current ones wear out. The company’s liberal/progressive policies will definitely get my vote. And, I vote with my wallet.

The Fireside Tweets … or Perhaps Fireside Angry Reactionary Tweets (FARTs)

January 14, 2017

FDR’s Fireside Chats are still within living memory, albeit not mine. But, of course, I’ve heard about them. I’m not sure if that’s true of younger generations.

So, now we about to have another president who communicates informally to the people. But, Trump is no FDR! So, what do we get instead?

The Trump Tweet Tracker — a blog post from The Atlantic

Instead of fireside chats, we get fireside tweets. And, they’re usually angry tweets lashing out at whoever dared to say something even slightly negative about our country’s largest and most insecure ego.

And, since all of his tweets and policies are extremely reactionary, trying to take our country back to some mythical golden age when white men could openly hate everyone else, I am calling these tweets the Fireside Angry Reactionary Tweets, FARTs.

Feel free to use the term FARTs for any or all of Trump’s tweets without the need to give credit or worry about copyright infringement. But, I reserve the right to continue to use the term as well.
