Oh, Mushkie, I know you like my stuff because you keep reading it.

So, you’re a closet liberal at heart.

Otherwise, why read my pieces twice and comment twice.

That would be a waste of your time and energy for malicious purposes and a waste of your talent, reflecting badly not on me but you.

Let me tell you a little about the power of satire, before you go all “sedition” on me, not know of what you speak:

Take this:

Or this from Michael Moore on getting rid of The Orange Accident:

MOCK HIM UP! Not just the brilliant people at SNL or Colbert, Seth Myers or Samantha Bee — but YOU. Use your sense of humor and share it with people. Get them to do the same. Keep sending around the SNL links spoofing Sean Spicer, Trump and Kellyanne — there’s no such thing as watching them too many times! Hahaha. I truly believe the final tipping point for Trump will be when he implodes from all the laughter — the mocking, the unbearable ridicule of tens of millions of Americans that will discombobulate him and force him out of the White House. I know this seems like Mike’s fever dream, but I believe it can work. I don’t know what happened to Trump in boarding school at 13 and I don’t care. Whatever it was, let’s use it. He’s used all the other things he picked up over the years — misogyny, bigotry, greed — against the powerless and the unfortunate. It’s time to laugh him outta town. And if there’s one thing we all could use right now is a good laugh — AND the possibility of a much-shortened presidential term.

In conclusion, Mushkie, if you do not like the way I RESIST, then resist reading my posts. Or don’t resist and just admit you like them…or you are a masochist. And the worst kind — a moralizing masochist.

Thanks for stopping by.
