Dick or Treat

Election 2016 has been called a dumpster fire, a choice between being shot and being hanged, electile dysfunction, and the original creepy clown show–but even with all that, I doubt anybody could have foreseen Weinergate inserting itself into the proceedings at such a late stage of the game.

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, New York City prosecutor Preet Bharara (known as “The Terminator” to his friends, and God knows what else to his enemies), while investigating disgraced former ...

Michael Goodwin of the New York Post has an interesting piece today about how the New York Times has pretty much sold out for the sake of taking Donald Trump down.  Granted, the Post is a competitor to the Times and definitely has a more rightward slant than the Old Gray Lady, but Goodwin is pretty spot on in his analysis:

Since we mentioned the renowned Payne Harrison in our last post, I thought it might also be a good time to mention that he’s working on a revamp of his website and has posted a nifty trailer for his latest novel, EUROSTORM.

If you like guns, tough-as-nails commandos, guns, beautiful and mysterious operatives, terrifying conspiracies, guns, explosions, pulse-pounding excitement, trains and guns, you’ll like this one.  Joe Bob says check it out:
