Today we honor those who died for our freedom
Today is a day we set aside partisan politics and come together as a Nation to honor those who died in war defending our freedom.  When we ask how many American soldiers have died in war it is a surprisingly hard question to answer.

Trump picks a trade war with Germany

Trump picks a trade war with Germany
Video of President Trump pushing a NATO ally out of the way so he can stand in the front for a photo-op reminded me of the Junior High School bully that pushed his way to the front of the school lunch line. Allies, who needs them?  That must be what Donald Trump seems to think. ... Read more »

Are you sick and tired of politics?

Are you sick and tired of politics?
Let’s have a show of hands, how many people here are sick and tired of politics; how many could be happy to live out their lives not reading the names Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Mitch McConnell, or Paul Ryan again?

Russiagate is not Watergate

Russiagate is not Watergate
There are a lot of comparisons around that attempt to match the Trump Campaign/Russia investigation with Watergate.  I oppose Donald Trump.  I didn’t vote for him and I think the Electoral College made a grievous error electing him.  The nation would be best served by his resignation.  He is a despicable character in every definition...

Trump impeachment dreams
Dreams of impeachment are dancing in the heads of Trump opposition.  Nightmares of impeachment are torturing the nights of Trump supporters.  Do dreams come true?
