Pick a Side and Exert Control

June 18, 2016 Jon Seliot 1

Hey Tim Cook, No aid for the Republican convention! Rock on. Those damn conservatives. All of them. Every single one. Damn them all. Here’s the scoop from Politico. Apple has told Republican leaders it will not provide funding or other support for the party’s 2016 presidential convention, as it’s done in the past, citing Donald Trump’s controversial comments about women, […]

Struggling with the Hate

June 15, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Tim, We’ve been struggling to write since the Orlanda massacre. We’re still struggling. We thought by now we’d have some brilliant thought or moving passage that would change the world in some small way. We started and stopped and edited and restarted. And then we’d turn on the news and someone would be bashing someone else. CNN would be […]

Really, Seattle? Locals Only Income Tax? Good Luck.

June 13, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Seattle, We hear that already your proposed tax on locals has been encountering some resistance. We feel for you. Once BOIYDism becomes entrenched, it’s hard to remove. We have a proposal. A graduated tax, since that’s the only Fair kind, and we’ll make it like the U.S. Government’s post Obamacare tax rates — we’ll tax the middle class a […]

Seattle (aka BOIYDtown)

Hey Seattle, We hear you’ve offered to take 85% of the illegal immigrants, house them, feed them and provide them medical care. At least that’s what we hear. We will say that 85% is a lot. Based on the Pew Research, there are an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S.

Donald Trump and Baja

June 7, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Don, We’ve got a presentation for you. It involves you of course, plus big walls, surfing and Baja. We think you’ll love it. So much so that we created a whole page for it. And also because we’re having trouble with companies who preach against evil. You know how we are about preachers. So click HERE for the dedicated […]

Right to Someone Else’s Life

Healthcare is a service provided by humans to other humans. Yet, we have some promising those services to others as a right. That’s the beginning of a very slippery slope.

The Hated Middle

May 31, 2016 Jon Seliot 1

Hey Hillary, We’ve heard a lot of hate lately for the Midwest and South. Perhaps that’s because we made a jaunt through the Pacific Northwest, along the coast — it’s beautiful. The folks up there, though, don’t seem too fond of the rural, even, sometimes, within their own states. And we wondered why. We started with a little research, as […]

NotMeUs = BOIYD

May 26, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Mark, We’re fans. Now how about releasing your tax returns. Because you’re not a BOIYD are you? That would disappoint us. But it appears that there’s a reason that Bernie supporters like the #NotMeUs tag. It’s BOIYD code. We get it now. It’s all about avoiding individual responsibility and spreading the blame. Who’s going to clean my mess? Not […]

Freedom of Religion? Not for Cruz.

May 25, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Ted, It appears that conservative now means Protestant. It also means anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage. It doesn’t mean fiscally conservative. That’s secondary. If it weren’t, there wouldn’t be riders defunding Planned Parenthood stuck on bills about socialized medicine. Regardless that the Big B.O. was going to veto the bill no matter what, you didn’t have to add religion. So […]

Bernie the BOIYD

May 24, 2016 Jon Seliot 1

Hey Bernie, We’ve coined a term in your honor. BOIYD. It’s pronounced ‘boid’, Bernie. Say it. Hear it. Bernie the BOIYD. It’s got a nice ring, doesn’t it? And what, you’re asking, does BOIYD stand for? BUT ONLY IF YOU DO You’re familiar with this behavior. It’s about people who preach for action but don’t actually do it. Some call […]
