Can we medicate Donald Trump?

Can we medicate Donald Trump?
I’m not being flippant.  Our national security is at risk with this guy’s behavior. The guy is really off the rails today.  Maybe it’s the Senate’s investigation into Russia and the election that starts today that pushed him into The Twilight Zone? He needs to get the Hell off twitter.  His obsession with the New... Read more »

What has the USA become?

What has the USA become?
Maybe it was always there and now because of social media, it is on display.  Maybe it wasn’t always there and because of social media, we’ve changed. The “it” I’m referring to us we seem to have become a spiteful, selfish, uncaring nation.  There is a national malevolence that seems to be growing. I see... Read more »

Remember “Lock her up?”

Remember “Lock her up?”
It was just a few weeks ago we heard the chant once again from Trump supporters.  Their icon led them in the chant at a rally in Louisville, Kentucky.  Never mind that the FBI said no laws were broken.  Legal standing means nothing to Trump and his supporters, never mind there wasn’t any intent of...

I’m not so sure about Chris Kennedy
Chris Kennedy, the youngest child of Ethel and Robert Kennedy wants to be the Governor of Illinois.  I’m on his email list and he is working the fundraising pretty hard.

Our side won, Healthcare is still broken

Our side won, Healthcare is still broken
We won, what do we do now?  The Affordable Care Act is not perfect.  I hate to be the bearer of that bad news.  When the ACA was passed, the first to admit it wasn’t perfect were the Democrats.  Shortly after it passed and people actually read the legislation, they were quick to say things...

The Press vs Donald Trump (and others)

The Press vs Donald Trump (and others)
We think of the men and women who have power in Washington, DC as contributing to the greatness of our Nation. No doubt they do contribute to our greatness.  There is another group, those who question those with power and how they use it that is indispensable to our freedom.  They are the ones who...

My Father-in-law and Adolf Hitler

My Father-in-law and Adolf Hitler
I met my first wife in Malibu, California in the middle 1970s.  In those days, everyone from California seemed to be from somewhere else.  I was from Illinois and she was from Massachusetts. Her sister lived in Malibu and had given birth to a baby in May the summer before I met my ex-Wife.  She... Read more »

Finding the Shepherds

Finding the Shepherds
In America, we live in divided times with a big dose of cynicism thrown in for good measure.  It seems like we’re always at one another’s throats.  The nation is polarized and angry.  Politicians like that. When they polarize us they can exploit our anger.  When they harness hate for the other side, then they... Read more »

The GOP Healthcare failure shows a Party in trouble.

The GOP Healthcare failure shows a Party in trouble.
In the 1980s, we used to routinely beat the Democrats in National Elections because their party was fractured.  It was like shooting fish in a barrel.  30 years later, the same thing is happening to the GOP. Democrats are taking a victory lap over Speaker Ryan pulling the bill.  They are thinking the voice of... Read more »

Walking the plank for Trump

Walking the plank for Trump
What could go wrong?  Why wouldn’t a Congressman walk the plank for a raving lunatic who thinks he is being bugged, offers no evidence, and the FBI and Justice Department says there is no evidence? Why wouldn’t a Congressman walk the plank to strip millions of Americans of the health coverage they now have?  Come... Read more »
