Bringing a Gun to a Rights' Fight

Although today is not the actual date of birth for Civil Rights and humanitarian leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we have given him the ultimate American honor, a day off for workers, and retail sales prices at your favorite stores.  I hope that we

The 2020 “Everything Terrible Trump Has Done” Year End Summary Report

Overview Since the earliest days of Donald Trump’s Presidency, we have attempted to catalog all of the harmful actions committed by his administration. Furthermore, by categorizing these actions by policy areas and scoring their relative impact, we have attempted to understand how the Administration operates

Mr. President meet the King You will Never Be

We are in the midst of investigations that may eventually lead to the ouster of a criminal President; one responsible for possible physical threats, to not only the country of Ukraine but to an American citizen, Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.  Mr. Trump has blatantly disregarded

An Announcement is Worth a Thousand Smears

Facts and figures are second to innuendo and hollow announcements in the current political climate.  Three years past the Clinton/Trump presidential race the press is still biting and snarling while circling the floor and chasing its’ tail.  The former head of the FBI, James Comey,

An accident waiting to happen…

Once is an accident, twice is a coincidence and three times is a trend.  My kids will tell you, and a few of my readers may remember me using this phrase over and over to explain purposeful chaos.  Donald John Trump went before the nation,

A Bolton out of the Blue

President Trump’s former national security adviser John Bolton said he is ready to throw himself at the mercy of the Senate Impeachment court, but color me skeptical.  The truth from anyone associated with the Trump administration, even for a short time, strains the fabric of

Republicans Rolled the Dice and Crapped Out

Using a description from Wikipedia, admittedly a dubious source, after the roll of a pair of dice and the chance presentation of a single pip on each die, placed together they resemble a snake’s eyes. This sort of roll also draws a comparison with the

I Grieve

Indicative of the current climate of coddled-hate gripping the country, it is not surprising that two houses, one literal, of worship were attacked over the weekend. Rockland County, New York, and White Settlement, Texas were the scenes of horrific violence this past weekend. Respectively, one

Christmas with Einstein

No, I did not attend a boring seminar on quantum mechanics or bend my brain studying the theory of relativity. I spent Christmas Eve and Day in Albert Einstein ( with whom I share a birthday) Hospital recovering from what was termed, a cardiac incident. Short

Follow(ing) the Leader or Leadership

The Impeachment of Donald John Trump, 45th President of the United States has made me ponder the difference between leaders and leadership.  I have come to the conclusion that Republicans require leaders and Democrats want leadership. Following a leader means you have no trust in

A slight set back & scare, but things now okay

When I last posted about my medical condition, I was at home recovering from a successful surgery to clean out my left carotid artery, a stenosis (blockage) in which was the cause of my (mildish) stroke back on November 12. For the first 24-28 hours

Distraction versus Consequence

When Donald Trump does or says something as disgusting as the attack he made on the late Rep. John David Dingell Jr. Wednesday night, suggesting, to his wife Debbie among others, he may have gone to hell, Democrats immediately recoiled in disgust.  He spewed this

Thanks, Mr. Mason

“Shall the man who has practised corruption, and by that means procured his appointment in the first instance, be suffered to escape punishment by repeating his guilt?”– George Mason According to the current United States Senate Majority leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY.), the most ‘deliberative

My Son? What a Bunch of Malarkey!

Without a scintilla of evidence, the impression from the White House, Congressional Republicans, and Fox News devotees is that Joe Biden is a schemer.  According to President Donald Trump, his henchman Rudy Giuliani, a cadre of House Republicans, and the Department of Justice's leader William

The Okie Doke

If you look up the slang term Okie Doke, the definition reads in part, “to buy something you aren't selling.”  In the longer than necessary marathon markup hearing for the articles of impeachment accusing President Donald Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, Chair

Black Community, Raise Your Hands

In the Republican Party’s continued plunge into racism, former U.N. Ambassador and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley tethered herself to white nationalism and bungee jumped into the valley. Speaking to erstwhile Fox News gabber Glenn Beck last Friday, Haley said, “We don’t have hateful people

The Monster is in the White House, with a Phone

Six-year-old Juan de León Gutiérrez; 8-year-old Felipe Gómez Alonzo; 6-year-old Jakelin Caal Maquin; two additional children a 10-year-old and a 2-year-old, both from Guatemala, have died in the past two years as a result of the Trump administration’s Border Policy. Add to that this week,

Baskets to Buckets

The Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee and the House Judiciary Committee are tantamount to charwomen.  Throughout the history of the United States, we have mopped the muddied floors of injustice with waters we have tried to cleanse with lackluster moral purity. The floors
