Illinois is having an election. Voters have a difficult choice. Which billionaire, racist, or alien from another planet should we elect? Those are the choices facing voters in the upcoming gubernatorial election. A recent poll of voter attitudes in the state is interesting. A survey company asked 1200 likely voters in the upcoming election whom... Read more »

The new Republican Party values are why I left the party

The new Republican Party values are why I left the party
Long before the vulgarity of Donald Trump, many expressed worry about the decay of conservatism. It has decayed to the point that it no longer exists in practical terms. Champions of traditional conservative values, like Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan, and Phil Graham, would not recognize what passes itself off as conservative today. It is doubtful... Read more »

The GOP takes the wraps off of racism and shuts down the Government

The GOP takes the wraps off of racism and shuts down the Government
Let’s be clear, the only reason the Government is shut down is racism and xenophobia. Donald Trump and his minions in the House and Senate have come out of the racist closet in full KKK robes. Chuck Schumer gave Donald Trump his wall and wanted DACA reform in return. Fox News seems to have overlooked... 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 »

44 years a Republican, 1 year an Independent, today I'm joining the Democratic Party

44 years a Republican, 1 year an Independent, today I'm joining the Democratic Party
This was not an easy decision to make.  Politics is like one’s religion, you just don’t change it unless you have a moment of clarity and realize you are on the wrong path.  My family’s involvement in the GOP goes all the way back to the mid-1850s and the start of the GOP in Illinois....

I love Mexicans

I love Mexicans
Our xenophobic President, Donald Trump in Poland with his neofascist pals that run Poland these days made me think of Mexicans in America. Poland is one of the most homogenous nations on Earth.  Like Hungary and a few other nations in Eastern and Central Europe, they are in love with neofascism.  The skinhead movement is... Read more »

In Poland, Trump's speech cheered by people who don't speak English

In Poland, Trump's speech cheered by people who don't speak English
President Trump arrived in Poland to the warm welcome of thunderous cheers.  The ruling party in Poland borrowed a tactic from Communist days of busing in crowds from all over the nation to cheer Trump.  The ruling party is ideologically aligned with Trump’s ultranationalist base in the USA. Poland’s populist government has allowed neo-Fascism explode... Read more »

Is Sally Yates a patriot or a turncoat?

Is Sally Yates a patriot or a turncoat?
I’m a veteran of a Washington scandal or two and I’m maybe a bit too familiar with Congressional probes and Grand Juries.  The pre-testimony smear of Sally Yates shows the Trump Administration is afraid of what she might have to say to Congress. People think of Washington, DC as a beautiful city, filled with smart... Read more »

How embarrassing was President Trump’s speech?

How embarrassing was President Trump’s speech?
Yesterday, I wrote a piece asking if President Trump would embarrass himself and the nation, which you can read by clicking here.  I have to tell you, I was spellbound by the first two minutes.  His opening with a reference to Black History Month without referencing Dr. Ben Carson was well written and well delivered. ...

We must never forget

The UN will have events commemorating... Read more »
