Don't let a chant of "Lock him up" lead you to a false equivalency

Don't let a chant of "Lock him up" lead you to a false equivalency
On Halloween I posted a piece entitled, To lock him up or not to lock him up, that is the question for Joe and Mika.  I got some very spooky responses. Now that I’ve gotten all the makeup off my face, I can see that upon deeper reflection, there’s a little more to it than... Read more »

Fox viewers sum up the destruction of America by labeling it "just politics"

Fox viewers sum up the destruction of America by labeling it "just politics"
A popular throw away line for Fox’s audience is as dangerous as it is simpleminded.  By saying it’s just politics, they relieve themselves of the necessity to know things. Ms. Danine L. of Winnetka, Illinois called her parents last week to ask them to turn off the Mueller hearings.  She told them that it was... Read more »

Is Nancy Pelosi undermining the rule of law and setting the table for a President Ivanka?

Is Nancy Pelosi undermining the rule of law and setting the table for a President Ivanka?
I was once a proud Democrat and greatly admired Nancy Pelosi.  I’m still a Democrat, but the sheen has tarnished and Speaker Pelosi often leaves me gritting my teeth. No one on Law & Order ever said, “We’ve got a ton of evidence that this guy killed his wife, but we’ve got to be methodical.”... Read more »

Mueller's comments, for your convenience

Mueller's comments, for your convenience
On Wednesday, May 29, Special Counsel Robert Mueller made a surprise appearance behind a Department of Justice podium to comment on the report his office released to the Attorney General. Realizing that few people got to see Mueller’s appearance and fewer still will read the 448 page report, I decided to put out the transcript... Read more »

Trump's ratings are at an all time high and yet, he is the underdog. Go figure!

Trump's ratings are at an all time high and yet, he is the underdog.  Go figure!
Vanity Fair’s recent article, “Donald Trump May Be One of the Biggest Losers in America” drew the following comment from Trump supporter, Lily C. of Naperville, IL: “And Trump’s ratings are at an all time high… Boy oh boy how Americans love the underdog, so keep on going after the President and he’ll win 2020...

William Barr is a flat out liar and a traitor to his oath; The Mueller Report

William Barr is a flat out liar and a traitor to his oath; The Mueller Report
A sad truth emerging from the release of the Mueller Report is that U.S. Attorney General William Barr considers himself to be Donald Trump’s personal lawyer. Sort of a well spoken, rational version of Rudy Giuliani. It’s sad because we, the people of the United States are paying him to be our lawyer, to protect... Read more »

William Barr is a flat out liar and a traitor to his oath; Addendum

William Barr is a flat out liar and a traitor to his oath; Addendum
In an effort to keep my posts down to about 500 words, arbitrary cuts must be made.  I usually stop writing after about 700-900 words, and then the cuts begin. Last week I posted a piece entitled Is Robert Mueller the worst investigator on Earth or is William Barr a flat out liar and a traitor... Read more »

The case of Jussie Smollett shows the importance of questioning the unlikely claims of one man when FACTS prove otherwise

The case of Jussie Smollett shows the importance of questioning the unlikely claims of one man when FACTS prove otherwise
Like most Chicagoans (I hope), I was appalled to hear of the heinous crime perpetrated in my city as recounted by the victim, Jussie Smollet. My initial reaction was one of anger and disgust with no thought to the possibility that it was also fiction. Who would make up such a thing and for what... Read more »

Donald Trump and the continued betrayal of America's warriors

Donald Trump and the continued betrayal of America's warriors
GET OUT OF THE BASKET! In Donald Trump and the betrayal of America’s warriors, we discussed some of the things that boggle our minds and infuriate us. Mostly, it has to do with a man who has never served his country in ANY capacity, claiming to love our military but clearly hating the people who serve. ... Read more »

Did Susan Collins have a consciencectomy or did she overdose on the Kool-Aid?

Did Susan Collins have a consciencectomy or did she overdose on the Kool-Aid?
Consciencectomy – the complete removal of one’s conscience Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) has often been a reasonable voice in the maelstrom of hyperpartisan constipation. I liked Senator Collins. Now I question her choice of speech writers as well as her choice of Supreme Court justices. Collins said something on Sunday that sounded like she didn’t... Read more »
