How nice that the USA rolls out the red carpet for the number one supporter of terrorism in the world.

How nice that the USA rolls out the red carpet for the number one supporter of terrorism in the world.

What makes the Colin Kaepernick timely is how Donald Trump proves Mr. Kaepernick’s point with each tweet. Did the GOP realize when they nominated Donald Trump for the office of President of the United States, they nominated a man who hates America? Despite all the wrapping himself in the flag, despite his misuse of the... Read more »

I appreciate the offers to join the Democratic Party, but…
There are a lot of good things about the National Democratic Party these days.  Things that as a former Republican are quite attractive to me.  First, they are the party of Free Trade.  Free trade was practiced as a near-religion by those of us who were part of the Reagan Revolution.  Freeing trade and tearing...

Electing Donald Trump was a mistake

Electing Donald Trump was a mistake
There’s no getting around it, electing Donald Trump was a mistake and even the GOP is seeing it as a mistake.  He is losing the GOP and it is less than two weeks into his presidency.  To say his administration is bizarre is a gross understatement.  Everyone has thought he’s a bit on the quirky...

That’s not quite right, but more on that in a moment. There are many reasons why Jews are Democrats, and stay Democrats, President Obama and Prime Minister... Read more »

Is Trump mentally fit to be President?

Is Trump mentally fit to be President?
Donald Trump lives in a reality of his own making. If it were not for his wealth, then he would not be taken any more seriously than some of the poor souls living on the street, and cursing and rambling at strangers about the government. He has been one of the major GOP conspiracy mongers... Read more »
