John McCain takes with him the soul and conscience of America

John McCain takes with him the soul and conscience of America
Everything we see and hear lately seems to play out against the backdrop of Trump’s reality crime show. It is the relentless echo of his tweets, his lies and his scandals that make the passing of Senator John McCain all the more heartbreaking. We have lost a true American hero-a man of unfathomable courage-and we... Read more »

Maybe there's no collusion, but there's plenty of conspiracy

Maybe there's no collusion, but there's plenty of conspiracy
The following was previously published.  It’s a little cheesy re-posting it, but not nearly as cheesy as Donald Trump’s constant refrain of, “No collusion, no collusion, no collusion.”  For every ten times Dishonest Don says, “No collusion,” someone needs to stand up and say, “But your son says you get all your money from Russia...

Is health care in America a scam or just corruption and greed run amok?

Is health care in America a scam or just corruption and greed run amok?
We all know there’s a problem with America’s health care system, we just don’t know what to do about it. How we label it may be the least of the problem. We tend to think of scams as people stealing from the system or elaborate plots to rip off the public. A doctor filing Medicare... Read more »

Bella Cain sounded great until the drummer started talking

Bella Cain sounded great until the drummer started talking
Stopping in for a quick pop and some live music, we discovered a great band at the Broken Oar in Port Barrington, Illinois. Bella Cain’s slick website describes them as “The ‘hottest top 40 country group’ in the area!”  They are good and they play more than just country. About an hour into their set... Read more »

Lies, gibberish and the dangerous evolution of "fake news"

Lies, gibberish and the dangerous evolution of "fake news"
Donald Trump did not start out telling his audience that the media was making up stories about him.  He only said that all the stories written about him were negative. That, he said is what he calls “fake news.” He also said that he invented that phrase (he didn’t), which apparently gave him the right... Read more »

Christians United for Israel may be pro-Israel, but they're not pro-Jew
When people tell you that they’re members of Christians United for Israel, it’s just a new way of saying, “Some of my best friends are Jews.” Or, like pedophile Roy Moore’s wife, Kayla famously quipped, “One of our attorneys is a JYOOOO.”  To see Mrs. Moore spitting out the word Jew like it was spoiled...

Can we decriminalize rape by simply saying, "Rape is not a crime" ?

Can we decriminalize rape by simply saying, "Rape is not a crime" ?
(For Bleichy, a really cool chick and my brother-in-law, Bob.  Thanks for the encouragement) Before you go out and issue a fatwa on me, please be assured that I don’t think that rape should be decriminalized. Quite the opposite. I think rape laws should be stiffer, punishments more severe (penectomy?) and defense attorneys should not... Read more »
