Beetle-Juice Three Times. Thank Jeebus that cheesehead is not banned from primary and secondary schools in Wisconsin. Because nothing says “Freedom” and “Liberty” like being the language police. If you talk about “spirit murdering” and “action civics” they might even exist. Better to be “un-woke”, because you might develop an “unconscious-bias”. Darn...

The straight news or punditry often starts with the premise of scaring the American people away with a price tag. From the Biden Build Back Better plan reporting, one would think that its’ only attribute—or detriment, depending on your point of view, is the 3.5 trillion dollar price tag. Even...

Joe Biden and the Democratic party are walking a tightrope on implementing meaningful changes to save the biosphere. The QOP party joined by two Democratic senators provides strong headwinds to derail that action.

Either the political acumen of the voter is in dire need of reeducation, or Democrats need lessons in exploiting a golden opportunity.

Voter rights legislation is winding its way through Congress with the foregone conclusion that Senate Republicans will scuttle it.

Among the countless examples of inane “Washington group-think” is the notion that only Democrats have to “pay for” their legislative priorities (i.e., enact corresponding tax increases and/or spending cuts to match the costs of new programs).   Republicans do not remotely consider themselves so constrained — in part because they also are...
