I’m well into my sixth decade of life in America. Unlike some of my contemporaries I don’t long for the good old days because I realize they weren’t really all that good. I like things like better air to breath, better water to drink, the ability to live life free from the fear of many diseases and a plethora of modern conveniences (like the device you are reading this article on). Simply put America is a great country! In the old days when we saw something that surprised us we would usually sum up the experience with words along the lines of: If you live long enough you will see everything. I remember Nixon resigning from the presidency under impending House impeachment and Senate conviction and thought it was a once in a lifetime experience. Today things seem to be moving faster and perhaps the new “axiom” is: If you live long enough you will see everything twice. Let’s explore. Continue reading Living In A Faster America
Before I get into the theme of today’s article I’d like to take a moment to denounce some recent actions on the political left particularly Wednesday morning’s shooting in Virginia. This is most definitely not how we resolve our differences in America. Again, this act of domestic terrorism was facilitated by the ease with which people who should not have firearms can get them in America and the availability of weapons that simply do not belong in hands other than those of law enforcement and the military. I really don’t expect Congress to use their power to begin to correct this situation. If the death of twenty babies in Connecticut couldn’t trump the power of the gun lobby the wounding of one Representative from Louisiana certainly won’t.
Russiagate and the organized criminal enterprise in the White House again topped the news last week. I’d like to take a look at some of the enablers and a prediction I can make. Let’s explore. Continue reading Silence Of The Scams
For months now I have compared the Trump administration to an organized criminal enterprise because, boiled down to basics, that is exactly what it is. Now in a somewhat comedic way I’d like to put it to music and set it up like a Saturday Night Live skit. Let’s explore. Continue reading The Continuing Saga Of Don Trump Goes To Washington
According to the Trump administration’s game plan last week was supposed to be Infrastructure Week. If you didn’t notice you are excused; you were not alone. Let’s explore. Continue reading Infrastructure Week; What Infrastructure Week?
Sins of the past are catching up with Donald Trump and quickly! To people of my generation this is like reliving Watergate only at warp speed. The biggest differences between the eras are the speed and methods of communication along with the proliferation of media outlets covering the presidency and reporting on it 24/7. While somewhat similar Trump and Nixon are actually very different and the repercussions of that are what I’d like to explore today. Continue reading No! And Hell No!
