Donald Trump’s 2016 Tax Return Leaked!

At 11:59 PM last night, just as the Republican President was filing his tax return, a copy was secretly made and transported out of the White House. That copy has become¬†available to us, and we now share it with you, in the interests of transparency. You probably have many questions, the most important being, “Why […]

Partisan Parenting

How’s the political world treating you these days? Do you feel as though the “other side” is working with a completely different set of facts? Do you feel as though “they” have constructed their own reality and will do whatever it takes to protect it? Do they make no sense and refuse to acknowledge clear […]

Deport Them All

I’ve seen it over and over again. On Twitter. In the comments. On Facebook. This idea that it would be better to stop an entire group of people from being in this country because, well, some of them are dangerous. Some of them are criminals. And this is true. Even with a vetting process that […]

Parenting, Politics, and the Placebo Effect

As I was scrounging around the internet for unsolved mysteries the other day (I found my bag, by the way!), I came across one of the most puzzling phenomena in existence. We have all heard of the placebo effect, and we know that it is real, but it makes no sense! Two people can take […]

Blue and Red Make Purple – Music For a Melting Pot

I don’t suppose it is a coincidence that, in mulling over the stack of items I have been sent for possible review two weeks before the election, I was drawn to something called “Blue and Red Make Purple.” The news has been talking about the “purple states” lately (could Texas become a purple state?!) but […]
