P is for popular . . . S is for stupid!

As you probably know by now, I’m not a humble person. But recently I received a blow to my ego that sent me reeling. I may never recover. It has to do with something covered with fur. Continue reading

John Rachel poet? Is this a joke?

I just got four poems published. Does this herald some epic breach in the edifice which has been over centuries the steadfast defense of good taste against assaults by dilettantes, pretenders, and other faux-creative rabble? Am I losing my mind? Does my chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight? At least there’s a scientific answer to the last of these queries. All else is shrouded in mystery, yet dispersed by widespread dispassion — meaning, “Who cares?” The yawns unanimously carry the vote again. Continue reading

Dealing With A Serial Killer

There’s a serial killer on the loose. Eight to ten people a month have been murdered over the past several years. This has got to stop! So decide to get tough and pull out all of the weapons at our disposal: We take out full-page ads in the newspaper, have street demonstrations. We sell t-shirts, have lots of expert discussion on TV, we send emails, mount a huge telephone campaign, have a Town Hall meeting, and even organize a petition! It’s a smashing success. Everyone (who’s still alive) signs the petition! For some reason the killing doesn’t stop. Where did we go wrong? Continue reading

Gay Whales

I remember back in the 90s seeing a bumper sticker . . . Nuke the gay whales! I thought it was pretty funny at the time. But it’s no longer a joking matter. It’s now the newest battle cry in our president’s noble struggle to make America great again. Continue reading

The Politics of Panic and Puerile Propaganda

Every day I scan the pages and websites of main stream media and nowhere can I find a discussion of truly critical issues, much less a serious attempt to address them with cogent, creative, promising solutions. This should be shocking but it’s not. It’s the new normal. Continue reading

VIDEO BLOG: Open up the debates!

I’m challenging Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to show they can handle some real competition by including Jill Stein and Gary Johnson in the debates. I’m also letting CNN know that if they don’t push for this, they’re passing up the biggest windfall in the history of U.S. politics. Continue reading

Deep-State Doppelgängers

I now have proof that voting is a complete waste of time. Whoever is elected will immediately be disappeared by the Deep State security agencies and replaced with a robot which you and I will not be able to detect is a fake. Then this deep-state controlled doppelgänger will do and say what it is programmed to. You and I will never be the wiser. Don’t believe it? Ha! I got this from my reliable “Washington insider” contact, a Latvian taxi driver from Youngstown, Ohio who I talk to frequently on citizens band radio. So November 8th, save yourself the trouble. Just stay home and watch the new season of Dancing With The Stars. Continue reading

The Hands-Down Ultimate Super-Bowl of Showdowns!

You know how on the last page of a book it says, ‘The End’. Then you put the book down and life pretty much goes on like normal, except either you need to return the book to the library or take it down to a used book store and get a couple bucks for it. Well, this time we really mean it. So pay attention! Continue reading
