The massive GOP tax hike

The massive GOP tax hike
The world is indeed topsy-turvy. The GOP I knew for four and a half decades believed in minimizing taxes. The popular view was that taxes were bad for consumerism. That means taxes are bad for business since we are a consumer based society. Lower taxes meant higher spendable income. People would buy more. Retail would... Read more »

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 »

The House Healthcare abomination

The House Healthcare abomination
The GOP always has had a selfish streak.  I grew up in a Republican family.  There is a huge difference between the GOP then and the GOP now.  Until the rise of Newt Gingrich and his gang, the GOP had a heart.  No longer does the GOP have any kind of compassion for anyone.  They... Read more »

A shutdown is an early Xmas Present to Democrats

A shutdown is an early Xmas Present to Democrats
“Mr. President, abandon this wall.” Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan should be shouting the words President Reagan used in Berlin to challenge Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down The Wall.  The words need to be a spoken as a challenge to the Bigot-In-Chief in the Oval Office to abandon his folly about a wall...

What does the Obamacare debate show us?

What does the Obamacare debate show us?
The two major political parties used to have principles.  They no longer can lay claim to principles.  They can lay claim to division, hate, and extremist views.  The ongoing debate about the Affordable Care Act is making them look like dinosaurs.  They have no relevance when it comes to life in America. The two parties... Read more »

The Republicans blink on Obamacare

The Republicans blink on Obamacare
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is not a happy guy.  He made a statement today that the GOP alternative is “Obamacare lite” and wants a full repeal and replacement.  That’s nice, but replaced with just exactly what?  Senator Paul, son of perpetual Presidential Candidate Ron Paul, and a proud member of the lunatic fringe of the...

The Week in Review Feb 26-March 4, 2017
Sunday, February 26, 2017 75-100 headstones were vandalized at a Jewish cemetery in Northeast Philadelphia.  The Anne Frank Center called on President Trump to give a speech on anti-Semitism and to outline what the Federal Government is doing to combat anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.  There was no response from either Mr. Trump or his Administration on...

Will President Trump embarrass himself and the Nation tonight?

Will President Trump embarrass himself and the Nation tonight?
How sad of a situation that we have to legitimately ask that question.  I cringe when thinking about what might come out of his mouth in his first address to a joint session of Congress.  He is the President the Nation didn’t want, and didn’t elect and is there because of the peculiarities of the...
