What’s Congress’ reaction to 10,000 children in detention centers? “Let’s go home for the 4th of July”

What’s Congress’ reaction to 10,000 children in detention centers?  “Let’s go home for the 4th of July”
For a moment, imagine that you take your family out of the country, and when you cross the border the government takes you from your children. You see your children crying as they are carried off by strangers who speak a foreign language. You can do nothing. Maybe you are in handcuffs and being restrained... Read more »

Is there a fix for our national divisions?

Is there a fix for our national divisions?
Tunning into Facebook and Twitter this morning, I saw the usual tweets and posts by the regular people I read advertising how much they hate Donald Trump. My regular readers know I am no fan of the current Administration, but hate? Hate is a strong word. It is used a lot in politics. Hating because... Read more »

Senate Democrats throw the Dreamers to the wolves

Senate Democrats throw the Dreamers to the wolves
I am very disappointed in Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY). He is spineless and has dashed the hopes of Dreamers. Schumer’s actions are not noble. They are cowardly, and he is using the Dreamers for tawdry partisan politics. His words today from the Senate floor in an attempt to cover his lack of character, or to... Read more »

As the government nears a shut-down, the Ebeneezer Scrooges in the GOP Congress rush to cut taxes for Billionaires

As the government nears a shut-down, the Ebeneezer Scrooges in the GOP Congress rush to cut taxes for Billionaires
If a nation ever needed three ghosts of Christmas from Charles Dickens’ classic story to visit, it is the USA. The GOP has shown us their priorities. What is more important to the GOP, a functioning government as they head out of Washington for a break, or taking care of billionaires? OK, I apologize for... Read more »

Alabama rejects Roy Moore and elects Doug Jones, and it is a political earthquake

Alabama rejects Roy Moore and elects Doug Jones, and it is a political earthquake
The San Andreas Fault? Piffle that is nothing. The Pacific Ring of Fire? Don’t bother me with trivial seismic events. Not since the earthquake of 1812 along the New Madrid Fault that caused the Mississippi River to flow backward has their been a seismic event in America as significant as the political earthquake in Alabama...

I’m embarrassed about my four decades with the GOP

I’m embarrassed about my four decades with the GOP
Today is a good day to be a Democrat. Today is a shameful day to be a Republican. There is not a day that goes by that I am not embarrassed about my past affiliation with the GOP. Not only was I a member of the GOP, but helped GOP candidates raise money and win... Read more »

The Trump Brand is in trouble in Alabama

The Trump Brand is in trouble in Alabama
Alabama is becoming as big a headache for Donald Trump just as Alabama is a headache for those who love freedom and equality. There is a special election for the vacant Alabama US Senate Seat that became available when The President named Jeff Sessions as Attorney General. A man appropriately named “Strange” is the Trump...

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 »

Donald Trump embarrassed himself and America in Arizona

Donald Trump embarrassed himself and America in Arizona
Just when one thinks Donald Trump couldn’t embarrass himself or the nation further, he reaches a new low. He is obsessed with Presidential firsts. None of his firsts that he lists are achievements. They are fantasies by a man who appears to be deranged. Here is a Presidential accomplishment of sorts. The reality is he... Read more »

Donald Trump reaffirmed the GOP racist credential

Donald Trump reaffirmed the GOP racist credential
This is a major reason I left the GOP after 44 years as a loyal supporter. Let’s be very clear about something. It is not enough to condemn White Nationalists, Neo-Nazis, and the KKK. Members of the GOP must also condemn Donald Trump for his apologist comments toward the racists in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday.... Read more »
