Crybaby Trump tweeted this morning: “Watched low rated @Morning_Joe for first time in long time. FAKE NEWS. He called me to stop a National Enquirer article. I said no! Bad show” Even though it’s an embarrassment to all Americans that our low-rated president regularly gets into Twitter feuds, the media needs to stop getting its […]

I read in the newspaper this morning that Republicans don’t think Donald Trump’s proposed massive increase in military spending is enough, and they want to increase it further. So Republicans want to take health care away from millions of Americans to pay for a tax cut for the rich, yet they think we have plenty […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2231: Here’s another wildflower blooming in Montana’s mountains: sticky geranium.
Marty’s photo of the day #2230: It’s a world of snow and ice. My view from the top of the Klein Matterhorn in Switzerland (elevation: 12,740).
Marty’s photo of the day #2229: When I took this photo, I was standing inside the caldera of a volcano, at Deception Island, near Antarctica. Ocean water fills the much of the interior of the Deception Island volcano, and there used to be a whaling station there. Fortunately, Mother Nature destroyed the whaling station with […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2228: Here’ an excerpt from my fist book, Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents: Woof! “Everyone, sit!” whispered Brian. “A pack of Cape hunting dogs is directly in front of us!” The dogs were an animal I had hoped, but never expected, to see. Cape hunting dogs are […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2227: I know that cows contribute to global warming and that range cows, like this one, are incredibly destructive to the environment. But that’s the fault of humans, not the cows. When I was a kid, my first “wildlife” photo, other than a squirrel, was a cow. All these years […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2226: Here is another of the 33 species of wildflower we spotted last weekend, hiking in the mountains near Hall, Montana. My wife, Deb, does the identification, and I do the photography. She identified this flower as a Missouri iris.
Marty’s photo of the day #2225: Here’s another photograph from last weekend, hiking in the mountains. Is it a puffball mushroom or an alien egg that will hatch into some hideous monster? I’m just not sure.
Marty’s photo of the day #2224: Taking a mountaintop family photo can be tricky—especially when dogs are involved. This photo is from last weekend, near the Forest Service cabin we rented. To take this photo, I had to set my camera on my pack, adjust the settings, push the shutter button, and run to get […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2223: This tree, at the top of a mountain in Montana, didn’t need no stinkin’ Christmas ornaments. It had its own!
Marty’s photo of the day #2222: Here’s another of the 33 species of wildflower we saw this past weekend, while hiking in the mountains near Hall, Montana. The purplish-blue flowers are Cusick’s speedwells. As for the white flower, we’re not sure. There are so many little flowers like that—it could be any of a number […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2220: I didn’t post a photo of the day yesterday, as I was Internet free for the weekend. On Saturday, Deb and I took our granddaughter, Fiona, to the Douglas Creek Cabin, which is a Forest Service cabin near Hall, Montana. Then, on Sunday, my son Sean and his wife, […]
Republican Congressman-elect Greg “The Body Slammer” Gianforte (first breath): “I take full responsibility for my actions.” Republican Congressman-elect Greg “The Body Slammer” Gianforte (next breath): “As long as I don’t have to pose for a mug shot. That isn’t included in my responsibility. Mug shots are only for commoners. I’m a rich multimillionaire. People like […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2219: Batman, coming through Barbara’s window: “We would have entered the building by more conventional means, but we didn’t want to startle the tenants.”
Marty’s photo of the day #2218: Robin: “If we close our eyes, we can’t see anything.” Batman: “A sound observation, Robin.”
Marty’s photo of the day #2217: Robin: “Where’d you get a live fish, Batman?” Batman: “The true crimefighter always carries everything he needs in his utility belt, Robin.”
Marty’s photo of the day #2216: Batman: “Better put 5 cents in the meter.” Robin: “No policeman’s going to give the Batmobile a ticket.” Batman: “This money goes to building better roads. We all must do our part.”
As of today, Republicans have rescinded the longstanding policy of allowing the media to ask questions of coming and going senators in hallways at the Capitol. Now reporters must get permission from the Senate Rules Committee before asking a question. I could go on a rant about how this is just one more step toward […]
