A Valentine for POTUS

February 6, 2017

41

    Dear POTUS, This year, I’m sending you a Valentine, not because I love you or respect you, but because I love my country. And you are the duly-elected symbol of that country. You may not know that I love my country, since I’m not in the pro-life movement, I don’t attend church, fear […]

This New Orange Era: The Day After

January 23, 2017

35

There’s a novel I read, One Second After, about a high energy EMP (electro magnetic pulse) missile fired above the US by a country with which we were at war. EMPs kill no one directly. Instead, they cause all electronic activity to cease. In other words, computers stop computing, cars stop moving, cells stop working, and what […]

This New Orange Era: The Test of Journalism

December 8, 2016

29

On Wednesday, Donald Trump was interviewed via phone by Matt Lauer. Lauer, a genuinely nice guy, is not a heavyweight in the world of journalism. Coming off the flack he received by his wimpy moderation of the pre-debate debate between Trump and Clinton, Laurer was prepared to do some hard talk, this time around.  What […]

Good LBL vs Bad LBL

November 11, 2016

43

  It’s three days later. Four days of Life in the Boomer Lane engaged in a wrestling match with herself. Good LBL vs Bad LBL.  Good LBL believes in her heart of hearts that all human beings are equal. She believes that we all, no matter who or where we are, have the same basic […]

Bad Hombres

October 20, 2016

10

  Watching the debate last night, Life in the Boomer Lane was stunned to hear Donald Trump say what sounded suspiciously like “bad hombres,” in reference to his assertion that The Wall will be all that stands between us and annihilation by the unwashed masses that are clamoring to overrun our southern border, in order to trade […]

Furniture Shopping With Donald

October 8, 2016

26

  Donald, I’m so glad you suggested we go furniture shopping. I need a sectional real bad. It’s making me crazy. I think about sectionals all the time. My husband thinks I’m nuts. You came to the right person.  I know furniture. Nobody knows furniture like I do.  It’s furniture.  And I know it. Most […]

Trump Plays the Ultimate Game

August 29, 2016

37

Life in the Boomer Lane has spent quite some time now, being pummeled by the behavior of Donald Trump. She has listened to one Trumper after another explain why he’s their guy.  She has heard two themes over and over: The fist is that Trump is a successful businessman/He is rich. He will do for us […]

An Open Letter to Ivanka Trump

July 22, 2016

55

  Dear Ivanka, Few would argue that you are a poised, articulate, capable young woman. You have lived a life of privilege, without coming to the conclusion that this makes you entitled. I applaud you. You deeply respect and greatly admire your father. No parent would ask for more. Your speech at the RNC convention […]

Trump: The Man, the Candidate, the President

February 15, 2016

64

Many years ago, I had a surgeon with a terrible bedside manner. He was abrupt and spoke above my level of understanding. There was nothing about this man that I liked. But he had a great reputation as a surgeon, and surgery was what I needed. And the surgical theater is not equivalent to the theater […]

The Secret Diary of Donald Trump

December 22, 2015

20

June 15, 2015 Dear Diary, For many years, now, I have found it necessary to hide my true nature to the world.  I have presented the false face of a ruthless tycoon, one who cares for little more than building a vast real estate empire.  I have named all of my projects in honor of […]
