Obamacare: Here to Stay
This reminds me of an uncomfortable political situation that existed nearly eighty years ago. In 1935, just prior to FDR's Social Security Act (or whatever the hell it was called) being signed into law, the conservatives in this country went positively apop...

When John E. Comes Marching Home
One can only imagine the torment that John E. "Jeb" Bush feels deep down in the recesses of his soul. His father's reign as chief executive was not a term that historians will be drinking toasts to a century from now. The fact that he was defeated for reele...

Mr. Paul's Nasty Faux Pas
“We have got this tailspin of culture — in our inner cities in
particular — of men not working and just generations of men not even
thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work.
There is a real culture problem here that has to be ...

February 9, 1964
"They look like Moe from the Three Stooges!" Tommy Degan, age five 9 February 1964 That was my initial assessment of the most magical phenomenon in the history of music. And yet, in spite of my initial befuddlement regarding hair longer than I had ever seen...

A System Rigged
  The decision is called: "McCutcheon vs. Federal Elections". In the pantheon of horrible judgements handed down by the highest court in the land, this one surely will be right up there with "Dred Scott", "Plessy v Ferguson" and, more recently, "Citizens Un...

Seizing the Wealth

Fixing the Unfixable
The dirty little secret is out: Grover Norquist, one of the architects of the modern-day conservative movement, is an undercover agent for the Muslim Brotherhood. This is according to Frank Gaffney, columnist for the Washington Times and founder of the ultr...

POST #528: Random Observations
I don't know the name of the nitwit who
writes the Mallard Fillmore strip, but I've been reading it with no small amount
of amusement for many years. Last week's series was indeed  eye-opening.
This fool was taking note of the fiftieth anniversary of Pre...

Introduction
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

TOM DEGAN is a fifty-four year old malcontent from the Western Hemisphere

He was born in Goshen, NY in 1958 and, after living all over the United States and Canada, moved back there in 1992. He is a high school dropout who in 1977 received an equivalency diploma (HEY, IT'S LEGAL!) He attended SUNY in Middletown, NY and in 1986 studied journalism at the New School in New York City. He is the recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and has worked as a truck driver, a radio DJ, and a metal worker...

OK, he didn't ACTUALLY receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom, but he DID get some kind of ribbon of sorts when he was in the Cub Scouts.

He is the inventor of Cheez Whiz and lives off the royalties on the sales of that fine product. He loves children and little baby duckies.

His address is:
2590 Rte 17M (PO BOX 611)
Goshen, NY 10924

(845) 294-5714

FULL DISCLOSURE: He didn't really invent Cheese Whiz.
