A Trump Government By Emergency Decree?

The Congress in its wisdom and understanding,  has decided that spending nearly six billion dollars on a superfluous wall is inadvisable.  President Trump disagrees.  So much so that he deems such Congressional action as having triggered an emergency that forces him to declare an emergency so that he can build that superfluous wall.  Perhaps the...

Howard Schultz, The Centrist Donald Trump!

Washington D.C. :The New Romper Room!

When you’re a kid you can hardly wait to grow up.  There are so many more things you can do, there are so many privileges that adulthood bestows.  Your life is your own and you are free to choose the what and the when of your life.  Of course, one of the major disappointments of... Read more »

White Sox Can't Play With The Big Boys!!

Let me say right off the bat that I don’t have a clue where Manny Machado will play in 2019.  It is said he wants to play for his favorite team, the New York Yankees, but the Yankees don’t seem all that interested in signing him.  For a while it looked as if the battle... Read more »
