That anomalies are everywhere in the political world goes without saying. Lots of hopefuls jump on bandwagons merely for publicity and shock value. Public amnesia in far too many cases allows some to succeed at the risk of the general good.
In this land of oxymorons, time is ripe for remembrance of The Noble Experiment, that day 96 years ago next week when boozing went underground, and lots of Americans became full-fledged criminals.
I have to admit I’ve been to the White House many times. Remember, it’s not bragging if you can do it – or did it. Well, now!
Breaking News! Alerts! Bulletins! Heavens to Betsy! I’m not scribbling for the teevee newsreaders. Stay with me gentle hearts, we’re zooming like a ray gun from Captain Video and Tom Corbett into 2018.
Here we go. No more promises, or pontifications, resolving to do better in this and that. For the next 363 days the outlook is magnificent. Can we just be nice.
We’re counting the days. No, not for the bogus impeachment talk from all the losers who have nothing worthwhile to say. The latter are one-note players, for sure.
Now, the glorious day after Merry Christmas. How about that? Sure sounds better than winter festival and other neutered descriptions from incontinents who have nothing better to do than try to destroy traditions and history.
In this season of giving, what could be more appropriate than to thank the wise readers of the The Tentacle for taking time to follow these stories?
The top law officer of the nation described a “wonderful weekend” at the Naval Support Facility in Thurmont, Maryland. He wasn’t on a destroyer. Naturally it’s impossible in the Catoctin Mountains.
Whew! At the risk of being smart alecky, the news can now be reported far and wide that the South isn’t going to rise again.
It would be remiss not to point out today is 25 Keslev on the Hebrew calendar. We can all say Happy Hanukkah as the eight days of the Festival of Lights starts at sunset.
It’s about time. Finally, the “eternal capitol” of the State of Israel is recognized as Jerusalem. The move of the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to the recognized seat of government is underway.
Hatred has become the order of the day. Without question, when rank and file citizens resort to such animosity because elections didn’t result in their hopes, the time has come to re-think their good sense if there is any such thing remaining.
Has the nation figured out that the country’s real problems lie in the Capitol Building? Apparently lots of citizens have had no clue until lately as leaders’ public and private lives have been bared. Blemishes of the heretofore legislative bodies are laid before the entire 50-states plus all the territories and the world.
Vittles in all forms are the stars today. There are so many variations on this treasured Thanksgiving that the troubles and trials can likely be set aside for joys of families large and small.

Tragedies in Sutherland Springs, Texas, and a week before in New York City are further evidence Divine intervention is a must to straighten out the creeping cancer of evil befalling the blessed nation named USA.
The idea of profiling by law enforcement always raises hackles. How dare investigators look for criminals, who act suspicious and when they think no one is watching or closed circuit video is having a good look?
Isn’t it exciting? Breaking bulletins keep on giving us wide-eyed and bushy-tailed consumers the latest and hottest news at such a pace sensibilities are spinning to exhaustion.
Today may or may not destroy myths and conspiracies of the past 54 years as to the perpetrator of the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
I’m counting the days to November 7. It’s exciting for citizens. It’s a must day. It’s always a new day and rather surprising that an overwhelming number of taxpayers, actually all residents, don’t just flock to polling stations and mark ballots for their favorite candidate(s).
I’ve been thinking heavily of late regarding the ongoing hatefulness from rental babblers on the tube. For the wags out there, I didn’t hurt myself navel gazing.
The ability to read varied opinions is always interesting. More often than not average people reacting to ludicrous comments may mean well, but it’s obvious they are ignorant of the world.
After almost four decades, the battle to de-religionize the American society has reached crescendo proportions. Leading the attack on almost everything that is holy has been the liberal left wing.
Can everyday life be more exciting than it is today? To laugh or cry is the subject and the choice is incredibly vast and fun to consider.
While chaos from the Las Vegas catastrophe still looms large, safety and security remains first and foremost on the minds and duties of all public officials.
The slogan goes “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” In these days of “troubles and trials,” however, that has tragically changed and the news is heartbreaking.
What a time to be in the sports writing business. Of course, pro-footballers are mired in a mess not seen before. Now, apparently it’s college basketball’s turn.
