Donald Trump Scores a Jackpot of Craziness with His Plans to Buy Greenland With America's infrastructure crumbling, its stature on a global scale dwindling, racial and social tensions on the rise, it's hard to believe the president of the United States might have a serious notion to purchase Greenland, but it's been all over the news the past few days.

What's Wrong With The News These Days? A Fake President Throwing A Lot Of Vitriol Around, Targeting The Media Donald Trump's unrelenting attack on the media is scary and very much against everything America stands for -- this dim-witted wannabe autocrat's vitriol against the media will only leave "The Donald" with blood on his hands if something horrific occurs in a newsroom somewhere in America while he's in office.

The Fort Laramie Treaties are the backbone of law statutes governing High Plains Indian lands Two treaties - the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1851 and the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868 - are the backbone of law statutes mandating that fracking concerns should not be allowed to operate in Converse County, Wyo., if a consensus of Native American tribes do not want them to operate here.

An Oglala Lakota Attorney is fighting big gas companies on public lands in Converse County, Wyo. People are getting sick from flaring and other by-products of the rampant fracking operatives ongoing in Converse County, Wyo. An Oglala Lakota Sioux attorney and activist, Mario Gonzalez, is fighting to quell this monstrous project on public lands, but the tribes and the non-Native communities in the area must do a lot more to stave-off fracking on private lands if they want a better Wyoming.

So, are your loyalties with Harley-Davidson or Donald Trump? Man, that's a dumb question! Will Donald Trump's reaction in tweets to Harley-Davidson affect the loyal upholders of this All-American brand? No, not in this world. Harley-Davidson seems to enjoy inelastic demand and its buyers and riders will throw Trump under the bas before they turn their backs to that corporate name surrounded by flying wings.

Ivanka and Kim teaming up on prison reform will only lead to big losing, all around What are Ivanka Trump and Kim Kardashian going to do about prison reform in America? Although their intent might be good, it's hard to believe in the reality show world of the current White House, the grand diva of the world's most famed reality show, "Keeping up with the Kardashaians," has taken on such a role. It's sad, but funny, too. Humorous enough to incite a lot of humor by late-night comics yet a tragedy, too.

All are sick with this "Carpenter, you have spilled the whiskey" news Santa Fe Texas this past Friday was a tragedy and a travesty, but there will surely be more school shootings on the horizon. The equivocating debauchery of our federal leaders and a blind obedience to the NRA will make it so. And Donald Trump's tough talk, his rhetoric of vitriol and violence, and his disdain for law and order certainly are not helping matters in this volatile corner of the American scene.

South Dakota's Republican Primary Race is a Dogfight! Neither of the Republican contenders for South Dakota's heated and tough gubernatorial race have an interest in what the state's American Indian populace believes in, or holds as important and salient. It's a tough sell, all this fighting over the old governor's mansion in Pierre', and many Lakota Natives are just shaking their heads with angst, disappointment, and even despair.

Trump needs to take a 'hands off' approach when it comes to Robert Mueller Donald Trump had better leave Robert Mueller alone if he plans to continue on his rocky and calamitous Presidency. If he continues to attack Mueller and eventually fires the man leading the special investigation into Trump's alleged criminal misdeeds, the Republican power elites will have to pull Trump from the political game.

Trump: "Not Only Do I Ride the Crazy Train, I'm Its No. 1 Engineer and Off-the-Rail Pilot!" Donald Trump is an emotional mess. Do you trust him with the nuclear codes for America's stockpile of nuclear arms? Is he mentally fit to handle having such power at his disposal?

Nancy Pelosi is renamed House Dem Leader, winning over Timmy What's His Name In a time of crazy surprises at the federal government level, it's good to know that Nancy Pelosi was re-elected as the Democratic House Leader. She beat Tim Ryan of Ohio's 13th District, her sole challenger Wedmesdau.

Why I write comedy, satire, and yes, even "fake" news An attack on 'fake news' is an attack on the First Amendment. Slander and libel laws have been designed to punish those creating hard copy stories without any satiric or comedic value from misleading the public. Let these right-wingers take a slice at fake news and soon, they'll be after real, substantive, accurate news. Wait and see.

Donald Trump's 'man crush' on Vladimir Putin isn't only disgusting, it's a harbinger of what may come Donald Trump loves strong-arm leaders and in particular, Russian President Vladimir Putin. There is something very peculiar about a Presidential candidate for what is supposedly a democratic country being so enamored with a tyrannical President of an Eastern Bloc country that has always been an adversary to the USA.

A Big Rebel Yell: The Deep South has more than its share of H2O woes The Deep South, long associated with being business friendly and open to new business pursuits of many varieties, is getting litigious in fighting against companies that are destroying land and polluting water. Southern hospitality comes with a really mean redneck side. Southern communities and even states are seeing red over continued ecological destruction.
