Charles Manson is dead, and I don’t feel so good myself

Charles Manson is dead, and I don’t feel so good myself
We turn a page on another sordid chapter of the American Experience that should not have happened. Charles Manson died on November 19, 2017, in a hospital in California. He lived almost long enough to see the release of the movie Helter Skelter. Manson was not the biggest mass murderer of my lifetime, but he... Read more »

Is the political center collapsing, or is it just being ignored?

Is the political center collapsing, or is it just being ignored?
What has happened to the political center? The center’s traditional role has always been the thinkers who hold back those who are reactionary. The center puts the Nation first and ideology does not replace reason. The center is where proposals are studied, and analyzed outside the goggles of ideology. It’s the place that looks at...

Oversexed Washington and their scandals, part 2: 2000-2017

Oversexed Washington and their scandals, part 2: 2000-2017
What is it about politics and sex? The two are nearly inseparable. When I moved to Washington in the 1980’s, I was shocked at the culture around Capitol Hill. There was no need to go to a local pick-up bar. Just go to the Capital Building. They were the same thing. I’ve been gone for... Read more »

Is the battle for the political future of the South on?

Is the battle for the political future of the South on?
A transgender woman, an African-American woman, and a Latina woman walk into The Virginia House of Delegates… I lived in Virginia for more than twenty years. Although I was raised and educated in Illinois, when I think of home, I don’t think of the vast prairie or the City with Big Shoulders. Home for me... Read more »

In the wake of the Texas church shooting what drives the GOP? Tax cuts and not mass murders

In the wake of the Texas church shooting what drives the GOP? Tax cuts and not mass murders
How did I ever belong to the GOP? The longer I am away from the party, the more frequently that question comes to mind. To the GOP it appears the mass shooting in Texas has zero questions for Washington. Instead of asking how it is the shooter could legally buy a gun with a past... Read more »

Donald Trump has changed the once proud GOP into the Manson Family of politics

Donald Trump has changed the once proud GOP into the Manson Family of politics
Donald Trump doesn’t have a base. Like Charles Manson, he has a cult of personality that is oblivious to crimes, lies, and Trump’s childish behavior. It wasn’t just a quip when candidate Trump said he could walk out on 5th Avenue in New York and, “shoot somebody” and not lose a vote. He was serious,... Read more »

It shouldn’t be a shock that Donald Trump and the GOP lied to us about Medicare

It shouldn’t be a shock that Donald Trump and the GOP lied to us about Medicare
Political lies are nothing new. “Watch my lips, no new taxes,” from George HW Bush; “You can keep your present insurance,” from Barack Obama even earned the “Lie of the Year” from Time Magazine. Now Trump and the GOP have told a whopper. “I will not cut Medicare,” Candidate Trump assured voters. It’s sad that... Read more »

“Humpty Trump sat on a wall. Humpty Trump had a great fall…”

“Humpty Trump sat on a wall. Humpty Trump had a great fall…”
Donald Trump is a man who planted and harvested the seeds of hate and deception to become President of the United States. It is ironic that a man that ran perched on a wall of hate has fallen off his own wall. The Presidency of Donald Trump is in pieces and it will never be... Read more »

What Trump and the GOP did this week to Make America Great Again

What Trump and the GOP did this week to Make America Great Again
The libtards have been quick to point out that the Trump campaign slogan, Make America Great Again was ripped off from Ronald Reagan’s 1980 campaign “Let’s Make America Great Again.” The love-bead and heavy drug user left claim that Trump had to steal it because he is woefully short on any kind of original ideas....

Waiting for impeachment

Waiting for impeachment
Sometimes art imitates life. That seems to be the case among those who oppose Donald Trump, and his Administration. In 1953, Playwright Samuel Beckett’s classic play, Waiting for Godot, made its debut in Paris. In the play, we are introduced to two characters, Vladimir and Estragon who await the arrival of someone named Godot. Godot... Read more »
