The GOP and Democrats need to stop playing games with Healthcare

The GOP and Democrats need to stop playing games with Healthcare
Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has been berated on Twitter about repealing The Affordable Healthcare Act by the overgrown child in the White House to the point that the Senate is trying to repeal Obamacare once again. Senator McConnell has been the subject of barbs from the foolish Donald Trump that is usually reserved a member... Read more »

Bernie and his single payer PR stunt

Bernie and his single payer PR stunt
What about Bernie? I’ve been a Democrat for 2 months and 6 days. That is 2 months and 6 days longer than Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT). Please note I put the letter “I” in his Senate Party/State designation. He is an Independent. He is not and never has been a Democrat. Throughout the Democratic Primary... Read more »

Why a “Third Party” is not a good idea, Part II

Why a “Third Party” is not a good idea, Part II
Yesterday was installment number one in a two-article series on the viability of a third party. You can read Part I here. Many Democrats and Republicans express discontent with their parties. Many believe the two parties are sabotaging their own party’s chances in the 2018 and 2020 elections. History has shown that Third Party candidates... Read more »

Why an American "Third Party" is Not a Good Idea Part 1

Why an American "Third Party" is Not a Good Idea Part 1
This is the first of two articles as to why a new political party is not a viable option.  Many of my former GOP colleagues and many Democrats are unhappy with the current state of their respective parties.

I've been a Democrat for 72 hours, so far so good

I've been a Democrat for 72 hours, so far so good
I was not ready for the welcome I received from rank and file Democrats.  It’s been a little overwhelming.  I expected suspicion, mistrust, and the cold-shoulder.  I was judging their reaction to my joining the party through my Republican eyes of 44 years.  Suspicion, mistrust, and the cold shoulder is a sort of GOP value,...

Rep. Steve Scalise remains in critical condition

Rep. Steve Scalise remains in critical condition
The Congressman and his family are in my prayers. I’m a member of the opposition to the GOP. I’m not a Democrat, rather an Independent but way before a party label, I’m an American as is Congressman Scalise. In spite of our political differences that gives me a bond with the Congressman that is greater... Read more »

The usually reclusive Beelzebub, someone usually felt around Washington, DC but seldom seen out in the town since the days of President Nixon, came to the Capitol Rotunda and held an impromptu press conference, to praise his Washington Colleagues. “I personally thought Paul Ryan did a great job on the Healthcare Bill, and fully expect Hell to have a...

Brace yourself for 8 years of Donald Trump

Brace yourself for 8 years of Donald Trump
Unless things change and change drastically in Democratic Party in the near future that is our fate as a Nation.  I’m basing this on what is passing itself off as the opposition to Donald Trump. The only conclusion one can make is no coherent opposition.  In spite of what you may be thinking, 2020 is... Read more »

I long for the good new days

I long for the good new days
So many people write about the good old days and long for them.  Not me.  You can keep the good old days.  Many of them were not so good.  I’m looking forward to the good new days. I remember kids with polio and iron lungs.  They were huge contraptions that helped someone who had lost... Read more »

Getting my head around the notion of “President Trump”

Getting my head around the notion of “President Trump”
A year ago, if you would have told me we would be on the eve of Donald Trump being sworn in as President of the USA, I would have thought you were nuts.  At the time, I thought there is no way the nation would elect a clown.  There was no way the nation would... Read more »
