Department of Irony: Trump, Clinton and the Obama Effect

Entry Img

Trump as the Anti-Obama It has been said that Donald Trump is the exact opposite of Barack Obama and therefore the perfect antidote for those stricken deathly ill after eight years of a knee-grow president.

Entry Img

The “Faces” of FTSD There I was, fidgeting anxiously in my shrink’s waiting room, thumbing through magazines, nervous for the session to start, but also afraid of where the conversation might go.

Harold Schaitberger: Our Fidel

Entry Img

IAFF Delegate Writes: “I’ve heard HAS speak at many gatherings. There’s a running joke about his presentations being similar to those of Fidel Castro.
