What the Rich Really Want

  As the Republicans who control Congress prepare to launch yet another attack on the less fortunate in America, you might be asking yourself what drives them. Now that they’ve looted our  nation’s Treasury to enrich the richest of the rich, why would they want to take away our Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid? Are they […]

Angry White Men

  I read this morning that white women are turning against Trump. Really? They’re finally abandoning the oaf who bragged about sexually assaulting them? The foul-mouthed champion of political incorrectness? I don’t think many white women – or women of any ethnic background – would want someone like Trump as a guest in their homes. Yet […]

Merry Christmas, Anyway

On the day before Christmas, I sit in my den, listening to the radio, which is predictably making soothing Christmas sounds, and scanning my ancient PC. For the first time that I can recall, my Yahoo Mail inbox is empty. So, nobody is wishing me a Merry Christmas? That’s only fair, though, as I didn’t reach out […]

When Looters are in Charge

I wonder if all those Americans who put Trump and his minions in charge of the country feel some sense of guilt? Do they now regret their spitefulness? So they tipped over the apple cart. They showed those elitist snobs who were looking down their noses at them. Are they sorry now? Now that their […]

A Cowardly Congress

  Shame on you, Bob Corker (in picture, right)! Shame on you, Marco Rubio (in picture , left)!  Shame on you for deciding to vote for the tax bill, after all. And shame on all of you spineless Republicans in Congress for supporting this repulsive piece of legislation. The bill steals from working Americans to reward […]

The Threat of Wedge Issues

  If we really examine our hearts, I doubt that any of us likes abortion. It’s a sad subject, with delicate implications that vary from case to case. Obviously, there are logical arguments on both sides of the issue, and those who take the arguments to militant extremes are making mischief. This kind of disagreement should […]

Too Debased for the Base

  Yes, Alabama, you’re better than many of us thought. You refused to stoop to conquer. Not that low, anyway. Not as low as Trump and Bannon (photo) would have you stoop. Not to the level of the likes of Roy Moore  For the first time in decades, Alabama, you voted a Democrat into the US Senate last […]

Ugly Blast from the Past

  It’s been a long, long time since I heard anyone protest that some of their best friends are Jews. But what else would you expect from Roy Moore’s wife? The Moores are relics from an ugly past, when white supremacy was taken for granted and Jews were often shunned. Yes Jews. Now, Jews are […]

Is Mind Control Working?

  The Third World was supposed to learn from the developed nations. Patronizingly called “the White Man’s Burden,” it was considered the duty of “civilized” countries to show “primitive” cultures the path to fairness and decency, and all the other virtues credited with creation of advanced civilizations. But the times have changed. And the tables have turned. […]

In the Name of God? Really?

If Roy Moore wins Tuesday’s Senate race in Alabama, I will be shocked. Saddened. Discouraged. The man is a widely proclaimed child molester. A bigot. A racist. A hypocrite. An outlaw who defies the law of the land when it conflicts with his interpretation of God’s word. Who is this self-proclaimed champion of that Old Time Religion? Could he […]
