A Hiatus and a Warning.

  If you don’t see any blogs in the next few days, don’t worry. Trump’s minions have not come for me. Webmaster Xavier is making improvements. Here’s the email I got this morning: They started work on the blog consolidation; however they are not done. It is taking a little longer than expected. I am […]

Oh, Those Scary Labels!

  Democratic Party bigwigs are reportedly cowering in fear because the base is turning to “Democratic Socialism.” I wish those old fossils would (as one of my readers might put it) get a grip. Yes, the Socialist label has been demonized in America. And. yes, some brands of Socialism have failed spectacularly all over the […]

As America Falls Apart

Things fall apart, the center cannot hold… William Butler Yeats could have been describing a vision of America’s impending future when he wrote “The Second Coming” back in 1919. These United States are drifting apart. We the people no longer share a common cause; we have become mesmerized by our own narrow self interest. As […]

Is This a Joke, Nancy?

  According to a news item I just read, Nancy Pelosi  suggested at a town hall meeting on Wednesday that impeaching Trump  would further “divide the country” and could do more harm than good. Surely you jest, Nancy! Are you so worried about dividing the country, you won’t try to win the House and Senate […]

Have a Purpose!

Here’s the first verse of a poem I learned at Guy’s Hill Elementary School, when I was 8 years old: Live for something, have a purpose, And that purpose keep in view; Drifting like a helmless vessel, Thou canst ne’er to life be true. Half the wrecks that strew life’s ocean, If some star had […]

Listening to the Angels

  Democrats have an opportunity to boldly go where no political party in America has gone before – the right way. No American political party has had the guts to stand for what is right against what is wrong – cost it what it may. Democrats have done a better job than Republicans of course.  […]

Man’s Inhumanity to Man

  There’s a mean streak in mankind, and if it is tolerated, it breeds monstrous behavior. Alarmingly, that’s what seems to be happening in today’s America. You can see it in social media where trolls bare their ugly souls.  You can see it in the news where unspeakable acts of cruelty and mindless rage are reported daily. […]

Another Kennedy Emerges

I know it’s kind of superstitious but I couldn’t help feeling a new day might be dawning for America when I learned that another Kennedy is stepping into the political limelight. To me, the Kennedy name is like a talisman. Consider the magic it has wrought in past generations. John, Robert, Ted… names to conjure with… […]

Poly-Tricks as Usual

  With Republicans in control of Congress and the White House, there is no “government for the people” in America. What Republicans really care about is scoring political points. And they resort to the lowest kind of tricks to do so. With help from Trump, Mitch McConnell and his pals in the Senate have managed to […]

No, Don’t Kill Trump

  Crazy Roger Stone is making headlines by claiming the “Deep State” has a plan to kill Trump. Of course Stone is the kind of publicity hound who would do or say just about anything to make “news.” But I wouldn’t be surprised if somebody somewhere is plotting to exterminate  America’s abysmal president. That would be a […]
