Today President Trump starts his fifth month in office. It seems like it has been years and I certainly don’t mean that in a good way! Let’s explore. Continue reading People Are Going To Jail
If the Trump administration has done nothing else it has given people like me plenty to write about. My biggest problem is that I cannot possible comment on everything I would like to. Today I’d like to do a sort of catch up article. I want to touch on several things one paragraph at a time. Come along. Continue reading The Fast And The Are You Serious?
Last week’s news was dominated by the firing of FBI Director James Comey and its repercussions. It looks like the demise of the Trump presidency was further accelerated. I’m not willing to bet on how it will happen (even though I have a favorite theory) but I feel the chances of Trump serving his full term are less than 50-50 at this point.

That actually sounds like a functioning federal government which was worth interrupting my regularly scheduled posting. In the blogging world that is the equivalent of a stop the presses moment. Let’s explore. Continue reading Something (Kinda) Nice To Say
