The CBO Score

The reason I hate doing pieces like this is I feel compelled to revisit the counter-intuitive ways that money is not what you think it is and deficits and debts don’t really matter but what you buy does. Money is an artificial construct that facilitates economic transactions. That’s it. It’s only other value is as …

Bread Substitute And Icky Wax Part 2

Look, this metaphor may be new to my writing but I’ve shared it in real life for years (mostly to uncomprehending stares, you creep me out folks, at least pretend to understand and humor me that way, I got it first time). Roy Moore is a sexual predator posing as a Christian. He’s no different …

The Dead Pool

I talked this morning about sports and while I find them intermittently amusing they are mostly convenient excuses to nap and non-threatening topics of conversation (“How ’bout them Mets?”). The fact is that sports as mass touchstones of common culture are in an inevitable and irreversible state of decline, one has only to look at …

The Breakfast Club (Wild Ones)

We’re a disorganized group of rebel lefties who hang out and chat if and when we’re not too hungover we’ve been bailed out we’re not too exhausted from last night’s (CENSORED) the caffeine kicks in. Join us every weekday morning at 9am (ET) and weekend morning at 10:30am (ET) to …

A Chilly Thanksgiving?

Mine was fine. No permanent damage. In some places it may have been a bit more… frosty. The shrinking profile of Jared Kushner By Ashley Parker, Washington Post November 25 His still-evolving role in the investigations of Russian election interference and possible obstruction of justice also make him a potential risk to President Trump, even …

Bread Substitute And Icky Wax

One of the problems with being me is I often make cultural references that nobody else gets, though because I’m such a charming fellow overall they wisely nod their heads and proclaim my genius, at least to my face, because I’ve stumped them. The Emperor must be clothed after all. Among my favorite citations is …

Happy Happy Turkey Day

Eat me! There’s no denying I like flesh, mostly of the processed and cured kind which contains all those nitrates, salt, and fats that make it very, very bad for your health. Also I neither care or think much about those animals who sacrifice their lives to feed me. It’s a moral failing, I know. …

Family Values

You have taken the land which is rightfully ours. Years from now my people will be forced to live in mobile homes on reservations. Your people will wear cardigans, and drink highballs. We will sell our bracelets by the road sides, you will play golf, and enjoy hot hors d’oeuvres. My people will have pain …

Turkey Loaf

Yoob a dinkadee a dinkadoo a dinkadee A dinkadoo a dinkadee a dinkadoo Morp!  Morp!  Morp! Us Scandinavian Bachelor Chefs (h/t CompoundF) frequently find ourselves in the position of needing a last minute substitute for real food because planning ahead is not one of our strengths (if it were we probably wouldn’t be Bachelors anymore). …

Sorry for the clutter.

You may have noticed some changes in the appearance of DocuDharma. This is due to an unfortunate update in our WordPress Theme. It’s unlikely that we’ll be able to correct this problem over the Thanksgiving Holiday and, frankly, because it will probably require intervention by our service provider (which always takes a long time) it …

I Can’t Drive 55

I’ve done some reprehensible things in the past and I continue unabated to this day. One of the cars I owned while I was living in Syracuse was ‘The Red Rocket’, a maroon Buick Century with a white vinyl top that boasted Positraction and a 454 4 Barrel V-8. Yeah, it only got like 6 …

Cut Cut Cut- Part 2

The inherent problem with this piece as a whole is that it assumes the tenants of Debt/Deficit Hawkdom which have been demonstrably proven to be false even if you don’t buy the whole nine yards of Modern Monetary Theory. “It’s a Ponzi Scheme”: Wall Street Fears Trump’s Deranged Tax Plan Could Kick Off Economic Euthanasia …
