Winning, Always Winning. Even When Losing.

Life in the Boomer Lane must apologize to Loyal Readers. She saw the up-to-the-second headline about Nikki Haley throwing her hat into the wrestling ring with Donald J. This needs a blog post, for sure, but LBL had already written the following post. And, blame her for what you will, but she has never been […]

Here, Little Doc

January 25, 2023

It now seems that the classified and top secret docs that were found at Mar-a-lago were only the tip of the iceberg. Like glitter and Life in the Boomer Lane’s hair, once released, they have the ability to be everywhere at once. First, it was the White House, then Biden’s personal home. Now they have […]

George, George, George

A lot has been written about Congressman and Newly-Crowned Member of the House Committee on Small Business and the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.┬áThe information is coming in at an alarming rate. What’s a poor schmuck to believe? In a service to Loyal Readers, Life in the Boomer Lane arranged for a private interview […]

How the World Could Have Been Saved

December 28, 2022

7

With only a few days left of 2022, and, with seemingly nothing more that Ex-and-Wannabe-Again-POTUS (XWAP)could possibly say to rivet Life in the Boomer Lane’s attention, he has gone and done it again. His Christmas Eve Rant was an eye opener, not because he trashed the usual suspects, while glorifying himself, but because he has […]

Constitution Constipation

December 5, 2022

Loyal Readers can be excused if they missed Trump’s latest post on Truth Social. After all, the World Cup and Herschel Walker’s mouth are sucking up most of the airtime now. In addition, there is the imminent appearance of Hanukkah and the fact that a Tortoise named Jonathan, the world’s oldest land animal, is about […]

Falling for the Midterms

November 10, 2022

19

In the weeks leading up to the mid-terms, Life in the Boomer Lane’s in box came perilously close to exceeding 100 political emails per day. Candidates, under a variety circumstances (running behind in the polls and in cash/running well in the polls and in cash/having had their personal credit cards declined) all indicated that LBL’s […]

Born to Peck

October 24, 2022

For the last few days, a Red-crested woodpecker has been at the top of the utility pole in front of Life in the Boomer Lane’s house. He has been relentlessly pecking away throughout daylight hours. He does not take breaks. The utility pole, as one might assume, is wood. But the object of the bird’s […]

Getting to the Truth About January 6

October 19, 2022

Life in the Boomer Lane has, like many other Dems, was glued to the TV every time a hearing aired. She then went over all the talking points with like-minded folks she surrounds herself with. But all issues have two sides (except, of course, for divorce). So, in the name of equal time, it’s only […]

A Panacea for the End of the World

August 22, 2022

12

Life in the Boomer Lane has been unable to metaphorically put pen to paper in today’s increasingly debilitating world. A stay at Jellystone Park (home to Yogi Bear and his cohorts) with five of her grandchildren did provide a brief respite from the knowledge that the earth was rolling rapidly downhill toward certain oblivion. It’s […]

The History of Right-Wing Extremism

July 19, 2022

12

It’s easy to blame poor Donald Trump for the current extremism of the Republican party from blah-blah-blah-we-hate-taxes to raped-10-year-olds-shouldn’t-have-abortions. The truth is that the roots of right-wing extremism can be traced back to the moment that early humans first realized that their environment was fraught with danger. “Things were better before poisonous snakes and Neanderthals […]
