The world is either in total shock or laughing their behinds off at the display of feeble-mindedness and narcissism on all the major networks and global media.Whew, it was bad. At several points I couldn’t help from laughing at others I felt sorry for this country even though I know we are witnessing Karma playing itself out here. The whole “debate” hype was…

Is ‘Duel’ the better 4-letter Dream word for ‘Debate?’

Sun drenched morning. Silver bullet-loaded, matched gold-plated Glocks gleam above gilded dress swords. Above bump-stocked AR-15s, strapped across slumped shoulders of two 1% men of Limited vision. Mediocre men brandishing usurped Peoples’ Power …   The NRA, RNC and DNC searched far and wide for an S***hole  Country—boots on the ground—who’d host the gentlemen’s  Gun-powdered dustup.

There is a progression,…
