Democrats, Galluping Off To Defeat Again?

There is an old saying that has particular relevance as we approach yet another round of the ELECTION GAME, coming soon at a polling place near you. The saying goes something like this, don’t count your chickens before they hatch. Are you listening Democratic politicians? You should. Yes, there are a LOT of negative headlines... Read more »

Bernie Sanders, Democrat, For President? What A Joke!

The savants of Conventional Wisdom in the Mainstream Media have anointed Bernie Sanders as the logical front runner for the Democratic Party’s 2020 Presidential nomination. My reaction? You’ve got to be kidding me, what a joke! What turns the very idea from merely mistaken to totally absurd is the fact that Bernie Sanders is not... Read more »

If Democrats are Doctor, Who? Republicans are Doctor NO!!!!!

I’m sure by now America has discovered the secret Republicans have kept to themselves for years. They have NO idea how to govern. And the reason they were able to cover up this deficiency so well over the years was because they were past masters at preventing the DEMOCRATS from governing. In fact, I think... Read more »

Doctor Who A Woman? Good Grief, What's Next?

Usually this is a stand for political commentary. But the news that the next Doctor Who will be a woman falls neatly into a “political” discussion even if it’s more about show business than anything else. I’m sure the first reaction of many of the Doctor’s fans is that this is the BBC’s move toward... Read more »

Donald Trump: The Rodney Dangerfield Of The White House!

From time to time, well just about every day, we get a tweet from the Whiner-in-Chief that he isn’t getting the respect due to the President of the United States. As much as I hate to admit it, I think he’s right. Donald Trump gets no respect, no respect at all. Yes, I have to... Read more »

The American Voter And The Politics Of Ignorance And Apathy!

Let’s face it. We’re a country riddled with political hatred and unreasoning fear. So it’s only natural that we would be surrounded by finger-pointing and blame-assigning. Democrats point at Republicans. Republicans blame Democrats. Liberals stand accused of being immoral baby-killers and naturally Republicans must be heartless monsters. Of course, our esteemed President would insist we... Read more »

Democrats And The Politics Of Expedience

If the Republican Party may be criticized for being ideologically rigid, the Democrats can be criticized for being politically rootless. The Democrats sort of resemble Gertrude Stein’s description of Oakland, California: “There’s no there there!”. While the Republicans may have a death grip on an essentially heartless political philosophy, the Democrats appear to have no... Read more »

Republicans And The Politics Of The Obtuse

When most people hear the word obtuse, they invariably associate it with stupid. Well, that may be ONE definition, but an alternative definition is “deliberately insensitive”. And from that perspective, I believe the word obtuse perfectly describes the Republican world vision. I believe Republicans see the world in a narrow focus, almost entirely in ideological...

The Grinch Who Stole Health Care

Congressional Republicans are now in the midst of the long march toward the repeal and replacement of Obamacare. It’s something they’ve been salivating over for years now. And yet, in spite of all the brave, tough talk, it would appear that the Republican elephant has gone into labor and brought forth a mouse. And a... Read more »

Bruce Rauner's "Phantom of the Opera" Moment!

It seems to me that the recent budget deal between Democrats and Republicans in Springfield is Governor Rauner’s “Phantom of the Opera” moment. The mask has been torn from his face and we now see him for what he really is. The image he so painstakingly created for himself in his run to the statehouse... Read more »
