Of Roars, Mice And Crazy Cats

Understanding what is going on today in American politics is a challenge to say the least. The inspiration for the title of today’s article comes from the 1955 British satirical novel, The Mouse That Roared, which became a subsequent play and motion picture. Let’s explore.

The Manchild Who Cried ‘Wolf’

This is another Sunday article where it is impossible to determine the big story of the week. I began penning this early Friday afternoon, just hours after the Neil Gorsuch was confirmed as the 113th Supreme Court Justice in American history. That act is arguably the greatest theft in American history and one that we will suffer from for decades. The news is dominated by last night’s attack on Syria; but that only serves as part of a backdrop for today’s article. Let’s explore something that is deeply concerning me about the state of the presidency. Continue reading The Manchild Who Cried ‘Wolf’

Trump has a history of exploiting veterans and that has continued into his brief tenure in the White House. Despite not having a “horse in this race” I think it is shameful!

What I’ll Be Watching For

Donald Trump holds totalitarian leaders like Vladimir Putin in his highest regard. He is on record as preferring them to the cerebral Barack Obama. That doesn’t surprise me in that those who deep down know they are intellectually inferior almost always are jealous of those who are not. For months, and increasingly of late, many have compared the actions and rise of Trump to those of the fascist leaders in 1930’s Europe. There are telltale signs to watch for if totalitarianism is just around the corner. Today I’d like to share a few I’ll be watching for. Continue reading What I’ll Be Watching For
