Tom Tomorrow Weighs Back In!

Well, gee willikers, boys and girls!  It seems like almost forever since we last saw anything of Tom Tomorrow on this blog!

Or at least a month, anyway!..

In any event, we’re overdue to catch up with him, so let’s take a look, shall we?


Here’s an interesting piece of trivia: did you know that among the world’s various democracies, the U-S has the lowest rate of voter turnout of all?

That’s pretty ironic when you consider that the U-S was the first major democratic republic since the days of ancient Greece or the Roman Republic more than 20 centuries ago.

So here’s the deal:

  • Are YOU registered to vote?

  • Do you know how to get to your local polling place?

  • Do you care about what happens to the leading advocates of Freedom and Liberty less than 100 days from now?


  • If you’re not registered to vote, please register!

  • If you’re registered to vote, please be sure to save the date (Tuesday, November 8, 2016)!

  • And PLEASE make it a personal PRIORITY to cast your ballot on Election Day!

  • Also please remember, there’s more than just the White House in play this season; there’s a significant number of U-S Senators and ALL seats in the U-S House of Representatives up for grabs as well!

This is TRULY IMPORTANT and no matter what you may hear from any candidate to the contrary, your vote counts and your vote will be counted fairly.

So, PLEASE take advantage of this all-too-rare priviledge in this world of ours and VOTE!

(Man, this soapbox stuff sure gets to be exhausting, sometimes!  But then I remember what David Letterman used to say with his most earnest gaze into the camera, “We’re tired, but it’s a good kind of tired!”)

Thanks for visiting and please return soon!

I gotta sit down…

Rick Stevens’ “Diesel Sweeties” would like to make a comment:

The Latest from “DS”

As in “Diesel Sweeties“, Rick Stevens‘ digital web comic which is swiftly coming to be a regular feature on this humble blog…


Okay, that’s one point settled anyway…


I’m so pleased to have his permission to spread the exposure to his talented point of view!

BTW, I have been known to advise some of my youngest friends, “Try not to age if you can ever possibly help it.”

I’m not promoting any kind of suicidal act, I’m just explaining to them that, as we trundle down the timeline, time WILL take its toll. You can keep trim and fit, which is all to the good, watch your diet, keep hydrated and on and on and on, but inevitably the aging process wins out in the end.

So get used to the idea, kids!… Because this is what WILL happen even if you take the most obsessive care of yourself.

Love ya! Please come back soon! Bye for now…

          In the intelligence business, we would say that Mr. Putin had recruited Mr. Trump as an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation.”

Hands Holding Model of a Brain

I’m Just Sayin’…

Dear Republican Presidential Candidate Don:

Please know that I speak these words with your own best interests at heart, just like you do.

I realize you think cozying up to the Russian President is a good idea, especially since you’re already telling people to expect the November General Election to be rigged.

Just remember this: When somebody disappoints or disagrees with you, they just get dragged into court.

But when somebody disappoints or disagrees with him, they get dragged into a waiting black car and they don’t come back.

So go easy with the thinly-veiled threats of political violence or assasination, please.

Crazy comes in a wide variety of flavors beyond your own, y’know.

I’m just sayin’ …
