It’s Time to Cry Foul!

  Why is everything so quiet? Why aren’t alarms going off, police sirens wailing and crowds thronging the streets? Am I the only one who heard Bill Nelson say our voting machinery has been compromised? Now that Russian invaders have broken into Florida’s voting records, the state’s midterm election results might as well be tossed […]

When Kids Take Action

  The mighty NRA could be going under. And a group of kids, barely old enough to vote, could be responsible. In a lawsuit filed against New York governor Andrew Cuomo, the gun rights lobby claims it’s going broke because a state agency made insurers cut ties with the association.

The Question Before Us

  So Trump has left no doubt about his loyalty to Putin and his disloyalty to America. Some are calling it treason. And Americans are left facing the most vital question of our time: What do we do now? What should we do? What can we do? What must we do? We must do something. […]

A Dispiriting Picture

  I get weary when I read that Trump’s approval rating is consistently above 40 percent and Fox is number one among cable news channels. I am stunned when I learn 80 – even 90 – percent of Republicans think Trump is doing a great job. Who are the people responding to these polls? Who […]

An all-too-obvious […]

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 […]

The Obama Deniers

  You knew they were going to get clobbered. And you probably felt in your heart of hearts that they deserved it. Those Obama deniers. They thought they could get elected by “distancing” themselves from the President. They were wrong. They’re the kind of Democrats who ruined his first term. The Democrats who dragged their […]

Watch Cable News Tonight

Tonight is election night in America, and you should watch it on cable news, not on the networks. Cable will give the event its full attention, while those networks will be sure to miss half the good stuff. I can hear you grumbling. You’ve read or heard the predictions. You think you know how the […]
