Still Calling

Remembering Chuck Berry

As most of y’all know I publish my Raw Story videos here at Still Calling when I get the chance. We recently switched platforms, and now I’m using Powtoons. I’ll immediately concede I’m not the best animator out there (thank god I don’t have to draw my own characters, or I would be well and…

Liquid Divorce

I’ve been a home brewer since at least 1996, so it was pretty much guaranteed that any woman I spent any length of time with was going to get sucked into my hobby. My ex was no exception, and we merrily progressed from taste-alike beers made from kits to all-grain concoctions that were SO much…

Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out

Guys, shed a tear for Pat McCrory. Shed a single, crystal tear with a unicorn on a rainbow reflected in it. Former Gov. Pat McCrory says the backlash against House Bill 2 is making some employers reluctant to hire him but he’s currently doing consulting and advisory board work. McCrory has been appearing frequently in…

“Nobody Knew”

Yesterday, President Trump said, 'Nobody ever knew health care could be so complicated.' Well, some of us had an idea. pic.twitter.com/1gGZ2Ud3Zd — Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) February 28, 2017 Orange Shitstain speaks: If there’s one thing almost everybody across the political spectrum knows about health-care reform, it’s that it’s really hard. People who study the issue…

GOP: Gang Of Perverts

Yeah yeah Bill Clinton Anthony Weiner. Bad guys, shitty people. But neither of those guys were hypocritical moralizing persecuting shitheads and beside that, when it comes to sheer predatory perversion, the GOP has the Democrats beat by a cuntry mile.

Remember the Maine!

Here’s a quick video I did today for Raw Story about the incident that sparked the Spanish American War, gunboat diplomacy, and the American Empire: the explosion that destroyed the USS Maine in 1898. I did a test run with the public domain song about the incident, but the singing took away from the text.…

Sad clown makes phone calls

If you’re like me -and I know I am- there’s nothing that takes the edge off Trump’s so-called “presidency” like laughing at the elderly, half-senile, tv-obsessed clown that currently infests the Oval Office like a family of cockroaches. Trump decided to cap off last week by making ill-advised threatening calls to Mexico and Australia, where…

Pathetic Pat Toomey gets punked, HARD

Pathetic Pat Toomey, who’s a real tough guy when he’s taking health insurance away from kids with cancer or sending Syrian refugee children back to warzones, is terrified of his adult constituents. So much so that he hasn’t met with them for months. But after he decided to support Betsy DeVos for Department of Education,…
