by Pat Tarzwell   11/29/17

The Phone Call

by Pat Tarzwell   6/9/17
I was sitting at my computer the other day, just trying to do a little work when I got the call.  It was one of those rare events where no-one else was available to answer the phone, so I picked it up and had no idea just how much fun I was about to have. More » • (490 views)

by Pat Tarzwell   3/7/17
There was a rally this week end called “The Spirit of America Rally”.  As it turns out, it was a Trump rally but I was there with 400 to 500 Washington deplorables.  I was really interested in going because I was told there would be lots of protesters; always liking to have the opportunity to talk with some of them, I went.

A new way to spell tyranny: TYRNC.

BananaRepublicTrumpby Pat Tarzwell5/27/16
Editor’s note: This is stream-of-consciousness writing by Mr. Tarzwell, fresh from a red-eye flight as a delegate to the Republican National Convention. I don’t have time to clean up the spelling nor do I want to. This gives you a glimpse of a man tired, abused, and beaten by scoundrels, but still trudging on (we hope). More » • (2061 views)
