Support the Arts today!!

The Trumpsters are coming after all funding for the arts. According to the National Endowment for the Arts, (NEA)¬†we spent $146 M of federal money for galleries, music, dance and theater last year. That’s less than what we’re currently spending to purchase a single, semi-airworthy F35. According to the NEA’s funding history, that’s less than […]

The Flu that wasn’t

*Warning–many readers will decide this is off-the-wall paranoia of the foil-hat kind. I do not mention aliens and I don’t go off on chemtrail conspiracies.
