[Authors note:] The following essay first appeared one year ago at this blog as a comment posted in an open thread.  Our host and colleague, Imbecile, subsequently published it with the kind attribution “Something Worth Reading from Luskus Delph” and represents essentially my first contribution of content to this illustrious blog site.  In the interest of doing some minor spring cleaning — apologetically and with the presumed forbearance of  a few regular readers here —  I am refiling it today so that it may hereafter reside  in the OTM archives under my familiar nom-de-plume; Luskus Delph [Here is a bonus pic from DonkeyHotey for your enjoyment…Read More →

In Celebration by Paul Ryan., Esq. Roll out another barrel. Strike up the marching band. Sweet dreams from college kegger years; shared quotes from Book of Rand We piled a bonfire to the sky, threw futures on the fire. Its flames, from distant suburbs seen, this mocking funeral pyre. Unveil the sixteen virgins. Present the fatted calves. Turn off those lights and cameras now; go write new epitaphs. Cavort like there’s no tomorrow.  Look no friend in the eye. In this autumn of such madness, let no man reason why Your shares now go to everyone who lives on easy street. It’s time you learnedRead More →

I spent a few hours yesterday, sitting on a patio in pleasant weather, enjoying the company of my two older brothers. Mike is a retired lieutenant police detective with a masters degree in Public Administration.  Bob, the elder, is semi-retired from his own CPA firm and holds a masters degree in Economics.  Both are staunch liberal Democrats.  They are also world class raconteurs whose combined intellectual firepower guarantees some lively and entertaining conversation.   I am damn lucky to have them. Bob the Elder had just returned from the post office where he mailed out letters to our Congressman Steve Cohen (D) and Republican Senators BobRead More →

…trump and his fascist followers…are bitter that they were born too late to partake in the Third Reich, and would look for ways to make America their own private Nazi-land.  We’re watching it happen.

  From beyond the pale, the Masters of Projection deploy hunter-killer drones to the far most reaches of  the zeitgeist… Excerpt from Newsmax TV’s Wayne Allyn Root‘s latest book, Angry White Male: How the Donald Trump Phenomenon is Changing America—and What We Can All Do to Save the Middle Class.   “Let’s look at some of the ways we’re being targeted, intimidated, and persecuted. The evidence is out in the open. Look at the IRS scandal. Just look at the groups who President Barack Obama and his socialist cabal chose to target and persecute: conservative groups, Tea Party groups, Christian groups, Jewish groups, pro-Israel groups,Read More →

  Records are made to be broken.  This time a mass shooting in Las Vegas has left at least 59 people dead and more than 500 injured. What do America’s senators and congresspeople have to offer?  The usual threadbare boilerplate expressions of “thoughts and prayers” for victims and their families.  Thoughts and prayers bought and paid for by the National Rifle Association. As each new ritual of horror plays out, always we are left with a conclusion that each one is comparatively worse than the last, and each seeming to reinforce incremental progressions beyond previous models for minimizing prevention and maximizing carnage.  Now we getRead More →

[Lügenbaron:  “Baron of Lies;” the Germans’ nickname for *Baron von Munchausen*]   It’s as if you said ” Republicans are clowns.”, and instead of calmly walking into the room in an understated business suit to rebut your words, they come somersaulting through the window in a green fright wig, floppy shoes and a big red nose, to scream ” We are not CLOWNS!!!”                                                                                                 Read More →

  Horse-toothed alien reptile, Ann Coulter, trolled her adopted planet today when she tweeted out the following from her sunlit perch on Tail Gunner Joe McCarthy’s hellfire-heated headstone : ” I don’t believe Hurricane Harvey is God’s punishment for Houston electing a lesbian mayor. But that is more credible than “climate change. A news cycle without Annie is like…..well that just won’t do, will it? ————- Fox’s 8-year-old host, Jesse Watters gleefully shared a few of the amazing sights from his Texas safari adventure this weekend; sitting on the carpet, blocking his daddy’s view of the family flat-screen. “I’ve seen some amazing things out thereRead More →
