Peace and legislation DEMAND a THOROUGH INVESTIGATION

Peace and legislation DEMAND a THOROUGH INVESTIGATION
On Tuesday night Donald Trump channeled Richard Nixon’s 1974 State of the Union address, both men using that platform to try to get Congress to halt investigations into their criminal activity. Nixon resigned seven months later (August 9, 1974).  There was a stark difference in the messaging of the two men, though. Nixon’s appeal was... Read more »

The State of the Union is what you make of it

The State of the Union is what you make of it
Most Americans don’t need to be told the state of our union, especially those living from paycheck to paycheck, which accounts for about 40% of the work force. The State of the Union for most Americans is the state of their financial health, or lack thereof. The Founding Fathers could never have imagined the pageantry... Read more »

Steve King, white supremacy and the word "schvartze"

Steve King, white supremacy and the word "schvartze"
Iowa Congressman Steve King presents a challenge to America on many levels. I’ve quoted fictional President Andrew Shepard in this space before: “America isn’t easy. America is advanced citizenship. You gotta want it bad, ’cause it’s gonna put up a fight.  It’s gonna say “You want free speech? Let’s see you acknowledge a man whose... Read more »

Heidi Cruz is an eyesore and Rafael Cruz killed JFK

Heidi Cruz is an eyesore and Rafael Cruz killed JFK
In case you don’t recognize the names in the title of this piece, Heidi Cruz is the wife of Senator Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz (R-TX). Rafael Cruz is Ted’s father. For the record, I don’t think Senator Cruz’s father had anything to do with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, nor do I think... Read more »

Is Senator-elect Josh Hawley a lying hypocrite and a crappy Christian?

Is Senator-elect Josh Hawley a lying hypocrite and a crappy Christian?
I can’t help thinking that Senator-elect Josh Hawley (R-MO) is a lying hypocrite and a crappy Christian.   Running to unseat Senator Claire McCaskill in the 2018 midterm elections, Hawley professed his support for the coverage of preexisting conditions, going so far as to tell his own sad story of a chronically ill child. You... Read more »

Fire the negroes, build a wall & drain the swamp. Whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

Fire the negroes, build a wall & drain the swamp. Whiskey for my men, beer for my horses
Beer for My Horses is a strange, macho anthem from uber patriot, Toby Keith.  You can read the lyrics HERE, but you’ll have to google it yourself if you want to see the video. Keith is an enigma.  He’s a troop supporting, freedom loving Democrat who played at Donnie Drumpf’s inauguration.  He also played at... Read more »

Republican propaganda works, even on Democrats

Republican propaganda works, even on Democrats
Tim Ryan is a Democratic congressman and has been serving Ohio in the House of Representatives since 2002. Ryan is a good guy and a smart guy and if he’s the Democratic candidate for president in 2020, I will definitely vote for him. Not dogmatic or ideological, Ryan has the ability to consider his positions... Read more »

Hillary Clinton can rob a bank every Friday night and steal the collection plate on Sunday

Hillary Clinton can rob a bank every Friday night and steal the collection plate on Sunday
Originally posted  August 7, 2016: How you process the title of this piece depends entirely upon your predisposition toward Hillary Clinton. If you’re a Republican or a registered Clinton-hater, you’re probably resentful that the Clintons get away with stuff that you can’t.  There might be some truth to that, but it doesn’t make it unique...

Did Susan Collins have a consciencectomy or did she overdose on the Kool-Aid?

Did Susan Collins have a consciencectomy or did she overdose on the Kool-Aid?
Consciencectomy – the complete removal of one’s conscience Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) has often been a reasonable voice in the maelstrom of hyperpartisan constipation. I liked Senator Collins. Now I question her choice of speech writers as well as her choice of Supreme Court justices. Collins said something on Sunday that sounded like she didn’t... Read more »

If Brett Kavanaugh's kids are traumatized by the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, it's just too damn bad

If Brett Kavanaugh's kids are traumatized by the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, it's just too damn bad
The Senate hearings on Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination were tumultuous.  Amidst objections over the lack of documentation provided and shouting protesters, Kavanaugh’s two daughters, Margaret (13) and Elizabeth (10) were removed from the proceedings. One insider said, “It was very unpleasant for young children.” Politics is never pleasant, but this is what Brett Kavanaugh... Read more »
