Will an election fix America?

Will an election fix America?
America, we need to wake up. We’re taking our political passions too far. For the first time in my life, I am afraid of my Nation. Nine days ago, eleven people were murdered at a Pittsburgh synagogue while praying, and I see no resolve from the Government, or either political party to fight the hate... Read more »

The U.S. midterm elections are in 154 days, will we elect the Trump Resistance to Congress?

The U.S. midterm elections are in 154 days, will we elect the Trump Resistance to Congress?
Social media is awash with hope about a blue wave washing over the midterm elections. It is not an unreasonable expectation given Donald Trump’s behavior in office and looking at his approval ratings. The Republican silence in the face of his demagoguery is not strengthening their reelection chances. Donald Trump’s disapproval rating has been dropping... Read more »

Six things in America we should all worry about

Six things in America we should all worry about
No, this is not another bash Trump and the GOP article from a lefty. In fact, this is not a bash anyone article. It is a statement of concern by an American about the nation, people he loves. I do love America from sea-to-shining-sea. I love the mountains and the hollows of my beloved Virginia.... Read more »

If a nation ever needed three ghosts of Christmas from Charles Dickens’ classic story to visit, it is the USA. The GOP has shown us their priorities.

Trump impeachment dreams

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? On Rush Limbaugh’s daily hate diatribe, the blow-hard radio host resurrected the notion of using Section 4 the 25th Amendment of the Constitution, to remove Trump from office.  I don’t... Read more »

The GOP is heartless, selfish, and cruel

The GOP is heartless, selfish, and cruel
It’s a good day to be a former member of the GOP.  Every day seems to be a good day to be a former member of a party built on selfishness, greed, and cruelty. I was part of their hypocrisy for four decades.  I left the GOP because I have principles, and religious beliefs and... Read more »

A shutdown is near and the GOP is destroying itself
I’m doing a project for some foreign policy folks and it gave me an opportunity to talk to a long-time friend who is in the House of Representatives.   I called him last night.

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 »

Democrats and Republicans are being fleeced by their own parties
