The GOP and Democrats need to stop playing games with Healthcare

The GOP and Democrats need to stop playing games with Healthcare
Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has been berated on Twitter about repealing The Affordable Healthcare Act by the overgrown child in the White House to the point that the Senate is trying to repeal Obamacare once again. Senator McConnell has been the subject of barbs from the foolish Donald Trump that is usually reserved a member... Read more »

Has America forgotten the American Worker?

Has America forgotten the American Worker?
It’s Labor Day, and for many, it seems to be just another day off. The last Holiday of the Summer, a time that marks the end of Summer and the start of Autumn. It is the most flagrantly political American Holiday. The Holiday was started by Trade Unions, as a celebration of the labor movement,... Read more »

For a change, think about Labor on Labor Day

For a change, think about Labor on Labor Day
Monday is Labor Day. It is a time we are supposed to honor the American Worker. When I was a Republican, I was expected to hate the AFL-CIO. It was the same story in Business School. I was told to despise labor. Labor was an expense on the Income Statement and we were taught to minimize... Read more »

For my friends in the resistance, we need to be careful

For my friends in the resistance, we need to be careful
I am proud to say I’m part of the resistance to Donald Trump and the GOP. I’m steadfast in my opposition to the racism and the white supremacy that is commonplace in today’s GOP. I’m unwavering in my support for the poor, the elderly, women, working men and women, and those who don’t have a... Read more »

Bob, You're a Democrat, you're a Union Thug?

Bob, You're a Democrat, you're a Union Thug?
There seems to be general disbelief by many of my GOP friends that I, of all people, could affiliate myself with labor unions. The labor union question is one I am asked about more by my former GOP colleagues than any other question. To listen to them, you would think I had taken up child... Read more »

The Skinny Repeal Bill is Dead and so is The GOP

The Skinny Repeal Bill is Dead and so is The GOP
The skinny repeal bill is dead.  Three Republicans, including Senators McCain, Murkowski, and Collins voted against the measure. Watching the debate, vulgar, immoral, and unfit to govern are the kindest things I can find to say about the GOP and those who support it. The GOP views on Healthcare show they are the party of...

The GOP is Calling Evil Good and Good Evil

The GOP is Calling Evil Good and Good Evil
The GOP Healthcare Bill being debated in the Senate today is an affront to anyone who has a shred of empathy, a shred of compassion, and it should be an affront to those with religious convictions. Three weeks ago, I joined the Democratic Party and wrote a column about my decision.  Much to my surprise,... Read more »

The failed Presidency of Donald Trump might be good for America

The failed Presidency of Donald Trump might be good for America
Donald Trump has utterly and completely failed as President. He has had help. The Republican Party has completely and utterly failed with him. I’m old enough to remember when the GOP was a functioning, governing party. Many mistakenly believe the failure of the GOP is just during the Trump era. It is not. It has... Read more »

What the Democrats have that was attractive to this ex-GOP

What the Democrats have that was attractive to this ex-GOP
I recently wrote a series of articles about my leaving the GOP and joining the Democratic Party.  One of the articles became a viral post on social media.  “44 Years a Republican, 1 Year an Independent, today I’m joining the Democratic Party” became a sort of anthem for many who have become disgusted with the...

I'm proud to be part of the stampede out of the GOP

I'm proud to be part of the stampede out of the GOP
A little over a week ago I joined the Democratic Party. I had been an independent for a year and realized not being part of a party meant I was a voice in the wilderness. I’m not content to just be an observer on the sidelines. I want to be an agent for change. From... Read more »
