Insulting the insane
The modern version of Richard III continues his reign of incompetence, insecurity, arrogance, bigotry and self-loving. But luckily even the Republican Congress seems to realise they may no longer sleep on their watch. Watching from afar it is spectacular how Donald Trump is able to hugely diminish even the role of President of the United States. An honour born by personalities like Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. Big personalities wh
And the band plays on
Should we worry that Donald Trump is somehow a Dark Sith Lord? Well as an old Star Wars fan I can assure you he is not. We all know that Sith Lords come in twos. A master and an apprentice. And we also know that Trump is surrounded by many more than one apprentice. So the Sith analogy does not work. Besides, the Sith master does not tolerate mischief amongst his own. And clearly, Donald Trump has little control over his own house. Speaking of which. Yesterday's news that Gene
I am normally quite pragmatic. I don't rush off to participate in marches for, or against, stuff. That is not because I do not have strong opinions - Ask anyone who knows me. It's just that I have a family life, a job, a few hobbies, a house, and a huge backlog of to-do's. So when I decide to join the resistance it has to be done in a pragmatic manner I suppose. So I based on what I am for - I've started to make a list: Not stay quiet: - start this blog - actively retweet an
Pitchforks and middle-class
I continue to wonder how it came to be that a large minority of American voters chose Donald Trump as their guy. As a bystander, not having a vote in the election, you might ask why I care. The short version is that a title often associated with the President of the United States is "Leader of the free world". I'm part of that world. However I am not sure the free world agrees that the currently elected President serves the purpose. Donald Trump is not a leader. He is a follo
Details? - WTF?
Reading CNN today - Reading is fun - President Trump should try it some time - I came across an article on Trumps issues with actually doing something, and not just brag about things he's done, want's to do, or make up he has done. In the article, CNN describes how the Republicans on the Hill has pledged to finance the fancy wall in the south, but now it turns out that they haven't figured out the detail about funding. WTF. Detail about funding?! When you are going to spend i
A government for the people is perishing
I am probably an idealist. I believe governing is partly about fulfilling the will of the people, and partly about our political leaders inspiring us to achieve more as a community coming together as we will working only for ourself. Watching the government chosen by the large minority of the United States I am disheartened. Watching from afar, it looks to me as the people of the United States are mostly moderate republicans or moderate democrats. But the politics are polaris
An elephant in the room!
The man unable to smile continues his haphazard handling of government. The link between Trump and Russia remains undisclosed and questionable. His national security advisor takes after his boss and lies to the press and the vice-president. In other words, the chaos prevails and there is no reason to stop the resistance. The huge elephant in the room, which is going bewilderingly unnoticed by Republican politicians, is the ununderstood link between Trump and the Russian leade
I have joined the resistance!
Welcome to La La Land. After two weeks of "giving Trump a chance," I've had it. The so-called 'leader of the free world' is freaking me out. He blatantly lies, belittles knowledge, woman and minorities, he has some undisclosed tie with Russia and/or Putin, and the list goes on. I can no longer sit still and watch this shit. I am officially joining the resistance to fight for a better leadership of the free world. The US is a democracy, and a pretty clear minority chose Donald
Ragnarök coming as an audio book this year
I pledged to write the follow up for Ragnarök this year. And I still very much intend to do just that. I have the sketches and the story outline already ready (well - actually I have been cooking on that book for 3-4 years, so it is not as impressive as it might sound). And as January started I had sharpened my pencils and was about to sit down and write. As it were, that didn't happen. Instead, I'm fully engaged with two projects for two different companies, and there is no
