The true test of character

The true test of character

Marty’s photo of the day #4204: Some people say religion makes a person good. That’s bullshit. Practically without exception, the most awful people I know—and know of—are the most religious. No, the true test of a person’s character is how they treat their dogs (or cats, if they swing that way). Yeah, I’m not guided […]

Killdeer and the pandemic

Killdeer and the pandemic

Marty’s photo of the day #3919: I photographed this killdeer on June 20, 2020. Deb and I had rented the Hogan Cabin that weekend, which is a Forest Service cabin in western Montana. Other than the birds and the mountain flowers, what I remember most about our visit was that it was our first time […]

GQP hot air

GQP hot air

Marty’s photo of the day #3649: If Republicans had balls, even one-billionth the size of these, we’d be well on our way to solving the global warming crisis and Donald Trump wouldn’t be starting up his white supremacist rallies again. So just remember: no matter what form the hot air comes in this summer, it’s […]

Republican bigots

Republican bigots

Here’s how we know Republicans are bigots: Barack Obama wore a tan suit—just like white president, Ronald Reagan—and Republicans turned it into days of ridicule. “There’s no way, I don’t think, any of us can excuse what the president did yesterday. I mean, you have the world watching.”—Peter King, Republican Representative, NY Michelle Obama showed […]

This will not be The Trump Airport

This will not be The Trump Airport

Marty’s photo of the day #3514: Today’s photo is from Costa Rica. This is the funky little Golfito Airport, which is a single landing strip cut into the rainforest, with a reservation counter, bench, and vending machine under a protective canopy. Rumor has it that Donald Trump approached the village of Golfito, desperate to have […]

Donald Trump’s new hairstylist

Donald Trump’s new hairstylist

When Martyman—ever the entrepreneur—learned that Donald Trump had deducted $70,000.00 from his tax returns for hairstyling, he shouted, “I can do that!” And since action figures are immune to COVID-19, he applied for the job and got it. Ladies and gentlemen . . . I present to you Donald Trump’s new hairstylist—Martyman!

Trump lost ground bigly

Trump lost ground bigly

Last night’s presidential debate was hard to watch, but from a strategic point of view it was a thing of beauty. Donald Trump had set-up Joe Biden to be a senile old man, just as he had previously set-up Hillary Clinton to be a woman with Parkinson’s Disease. That Biden more than held his own […]

Photography by moonlight

Photography by moonlight

Marty’s photo of the day #3337: This is Fred Burr Creek, located a little below my house. I took this photo at night with no flash—just moonlight. I’m posting this shot out of season for a reason: the next time the creek looks like this and I can photograph it using moonlight, Joe Biden will […]
