My Mother used to say, “If you do not have anything nice to say, then shut up.” Moms are sometimes blunt. I am a Jew by choice. My religion gives me a place in the world and for me, a personal understanding of a Higher Power. Yesterday, it brought me pain, because of ugly things... 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.
