I don’t know about you, but I don’t want John Kasich to be nominated for a Biden cabinet position. His chants of “Lock her up” during the run-up to the 2016 election were nothing but hideous, and it plagues this nation to this very day. Trump has weaponized it against powerful...

This is so much more serious but just as annoying.   I was sitting outside on the porch tonight when I thought back of the time  when my 4 year old could not get his way about something.  I don’t quite recall what it was but I think it had to...

Rampant GOP dickishness. Kushner also said his father-in-law “basically did a full hostile takeover of the Republican Party.” The next week is going to be very stressful, be patient, regardless of the outcome.

Multiple robins have occupied my yard for months now.  Somehow their presence seemed to make the Spring come a few days sooner. I cannot tell the boys from the girls.  I thought the female were supposed to be drab,  but they all look alike to me.  They seemed more like...

Time seems to be running out as all the George Floyd cops got charged and in Mark Esper’s apparent defection for responsibility, Trump now seems to be backtracking on the use of US military in a posse comitatus action. x Monmouth poll -50% say race relations will be a major or minor...

This is what Republican social distancing looks like: Iowa's junior senator, Joni Ernst, said Wednesday that while she would “love to rub a little Iowa nice off” on President Donald Trump, his leadership style is different from hers and if he changed it, he may not get as much attention from the...

and that’s okay with me. Nevertheless I will take the time to write it.   Yesterday completed 5 weeks since I last was in school with my students (March 13).  That is 6 “school days” of Spring Break, 3 days of break for Easter (as a Catholic school, off for...

Sometimes you can tell something about a politician by their supporters.  Oh, I am not necessarily talking about the every day voter but the big time movers and shakers.  Take for instance economist and former Obama Administration official Austan Goolsbee.  It appears that Goolsbee is a Pete Buttigieg supporter.  Why...
