The Old-Fashioned Radio Show

It was 1980. Hair was big. John’s last name was Cougar. Apple computers didn’t exist. Diana was engaged to Charles. Rambo was just a twinkle in Stallone’s eye. And I was a disc jockey and newsman at WERI AM/FM in Rhode Island.

I came home every weekend from Boston College to work on-the-air. I missed a lot of Friday night parties at school, but thankfully the student body started every weekend on Thursday.

I didn’t have big hair, but a lot of popular musicians did. I loved throwing Frisbees with my friend John Cavaliere in the square, where the girls could possibly be watching from their dorm room windows. Continue reading “The Old-Fashioned Radio Show”

Alcoholics Anonymous and the Audiobook Revolution

My personal history includes many years involved with Alcoholics Anonymous, for a decade as the official “taper” for AA and Al-Anon conventions. It’s something I worked hard at, traveling around North America, and am proud of, though it’s tricky to “find the audience” to let people know these great recordings exist (because the audience is anonymous!). Now, I’m happy to announce some of these great recordings, very high-quality and easy to listen to, have found a home on Spotify. I have begun turning them into audiobooks!

The Very Last Snow

The Very Last Snow

To see the colors in the fall
To see the seasons roll along
It all surrounds this simple soul
I plan to miss it when I’m gone

In Autumn your mums will fade on you
And you’ll share that watermelon you grew
Every single day will be new
But every one might be the last one too

How will we know
If it’s the very last snow?
Will it cover the ground
Without making a sound? Continue reading “The Very Last Snow”

Everything They Told You Was A Lie

There’s no easy way to say it.

It’s impossible for me to sound credible.

I have the entire US government against me.

Well, at least they’re sloppy, inconsistent and easy to disprove.

Donald Trump took office as US President in 2017. Soon he would hear about COVID, which would be “discovered” in the US in 2019, named and studied. The FDA would issue an “Emergency Use Authorization” for HCQ, officially recommending HCQ as a treatment for COVID, in 2019.  No problem.  Everything’s cool.

Trump stepped up to a podium in 2020 and told Americans HCQ was a possible treatment. At the time it was approved with an “EUA” by the FDA. He was right. The newspaper headline read “He’s not a doctor! He’s going to kill us all!”  I remember it like it was yesterday.

Fast forward to 2023. The lies are unraveling.

The FDA would cancel its EUA for HCQ only TWO MONTHS after Trump recommended it, with no explanation Continue reading “Everything They Told You Was A Lie”

Joe Biden is a Criminal

Good morning!

And what a beautiful new day it is! Today’s article comes from my answers on the site Quora. The topic was why do people hate Donald Trump, an eternal question that could be asked and answered in many forms, which I couldn’t resist. I’m a big Trump fan.

So here we go, into Quora land … see you on the other side!

Original question: People say the U.S. Government has brainwashed the public against Trump, others say that Trump has brainwashed the public against the U.S. Government. Both sides of the spectrum are highly polarized. My question is where is the middle ground?

Good question!

Democrats took out the middle ground when they embraced communism, explicitly in college settings to trickle down over the years, when they installed, especially during Obama’s administration, judges, DAs and AGs throughout the country who were not only Democrats but who were controllable, agreeable and willing to be corrupt, and when they created censorship through “partisan” “friendships” with major corporations and major online players like YouTube. Through the money-fueled corporate channel, often with taxpayer dollars, the Democratic party convinced many major news media outlets Continue reading “Joe Biden is a Criminal”

From Twitter to Sinister, a Destiny of Death

Is it time to “cancel” Twitter?
Is it making your life better in any way?
Who’s in charge here?

Are you sick of rich people using YOU to create their wealth?
Youtube did it; they didn’t need to upload a single video.
Google Earth was drawn entirely by users.
And Twitter won’t survive without us.

We may not own Twitter, but we ARE Twitter.

Musk gives bigoted control to CEO Yaccarino.
Who’s she? She has control over what YOU say and think.
She thinks she can reinvent freedom, to suit herself.
Musk won’t stop her. He doesn’t care.

Elon Musk has no intention of improving Twitter for users.
He changed the name to “X,” and now he’s playing with blocking. Continue reading “From Twitter to Sinister, a Destiny of Death”

The View is a Mess

My version of “just minding my own business” always includes criticizing people! That’s because the people are “in my business!”

It can be anybody, almost. Foremost in my mind are Whoopi and her evil friend Joy, the “View” hostesses that make everyone’s day a little more  … fantastic!

These are people who live in a fantasy, and expertly act out reality to entertain stay-at-home folks who want to know what the heck’s going on! Back in the day it was General Hospital and soap operas with lots of soap commercials, but entertainment and “news” officially merged some time in the 80’s, when “Entertainment Tonight” was a new show.

Wikipedia tells us “In its early years from its 1981 inception, Entertainment Tonight – following a local newscast-style format – consisted primarily of coverage of the latest movies, music and television releases and projects.” Continue reading “The View is a Mess”

Claude Knows

Did you know you have a friend who’s really smart? He’s also polite and always tries to be fair-minded! He goes by many names and isn’t human, but he’s available online 24/7 and represents the modern “smart friend!”

Introducing Claude. You can chat with him, too. Just click right here!

I spent a few minutes interviewing Claude, a non-human intelligent robotic webpage personality, and asked him about COVID and election fraud! He wasn’t hesitant at all to chat me up, wrote much much more sensible answers than anything you’ll see on CNN or ABC Continue reading “Claude Knows”
