This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation. When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

More from Donald Trump, pathological liar.
In an interview this week, Donald Trump said “I actually got lucky because I had a very high draft number. I’ll never forget, that was an amazing period of time in my life.”
I spent a few minutes on Wikipedia and knew he was lying.
Trump left school in 1968. The draft lottery started in December 1969. The reason I knew Trump was lying was because my brother, four years younger than Trump, graduated high school in 1968 and had no plans to go to college, and he was told to show up at the draft board within weeks of graduation.
Young people won't remember this, but back then, the draft board didn't play.
So after leaving school in 1968, Donald Trump must have been in the same boat as my brother. The good folks at The Smoking Gun did a lot more digging than I did, and Trump's lie is exposed. He got several student deferments and in July 1968, he was re-classified 1-A. By October 1968, more than a year before the lottery, he is 1-Y, a medical deferment.
I'm not trashing people who got medical deferments back then. My brother Michael got one because of an allergy to penicillin.
I'm trashing Trump because he is a miserable lying scumbag. He is now and he always has been.
Of all his accomplishments, only the list of women he has had sex with stands up to scrutiny. He has bagged some fabulous babes. Everything else, his alleged success as a student or businessman or anything else, is just another pack of lies.
This guy can't help but lie. If his mouth is open, he's lying. He lies while gargling, for pity's sake.
And what's worse, this is exactly the kind of sack of shit we can't get off the stage in this ridiculous age in which we live.
