The title of this article comes from a story two of my female friends told me many years ago and with poetic license I am “adapting” it so that the “him” is President Trump. Let’s explore as I stretch the PG rating ever so slightly. Continue reading Give Him The Clap
I begin today’s article by repeating its title: Do political crimes pay? In the final paragraph I’ll give you my answer; in between, let’s explore. Continue reading Do Political Crimes Pay?
Trump’s Muslim Ban had consistently lost in the courts until the Supreme Court recently rendered what was effectively a partial stay. I refrained from comment on the Court’s decision because it was very limited and the final ruling is still very much in doubt.

Could Barack Obama get over the extremely high bar set by Dwight Eisenhower? Let’s explore. Continue reading A Different Bar
