Forty-six years have passed since that skinny kid with long black curly hair... Read more »

There is a general belief that the 2018 midterm elections are going to be a bloodbath for the Republicans. Robust indicators are pointing toward a sentiment of reining in a mentally unstable President since the GOP controlled House and Senate have shown no backbone in their dealings with the White House.

Some things we must do to ensure there is a blue wave on election day
“Donald Trump is a liar, shows no signs of having any kind of morality whatsoever, probably is insane, and I will most likely vote for him again in 2020, and will probably vote for a Republican for Congress too,” my friend Frank told me over the weekend.

The poor are helping the rich get richer

The poor are helping the rich get richer
The GOP tax bills hurt America’s future. They hurt the poor and help keep them poor, they hurt students who are our future, they attack the elderly who will have their Healthcare under Medicare and Medicaid cut.
