The word is that you can never go home again. I was born in Buffalo, New York and grew up in an adjacent suburb. I have no desire to return to Western New York (other than perhaps a visit – it’s a great place to eat). Having lived there for the first 47 years of my life it will always be a part of me. If I notice someone is from there I tend to pay just a little bit more attention especially if we share an alma mater. That can be both good and bad. New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg is a fellow Western New York native and SUNY-Buffalo alum. I follow her work and suggest you do also. Michael Caputo was born in Buffalo, off and on lived in Western New York and attended SUNY-Buffalo. The three of us are certainly not alike. Let’s explore. Continue reading Hometown Connection
It seems like all the political oxygen in the room these days is taken up by the impeachment and the Democratic primary. Today I’d like to touch on a few things happening to a great degree in the background. Let’s explore. Continue reading Other Than Impeachment And The Primary
Unless I’m totally misreading the political tea leaves the House of Representatives will impeach Donald Trump in the relatively near future. How or even if he will be removed from office is a much murkier picture at this point. (If I had to bet I’d still bet resignation ala Nixon, but that is far from a sure thing.) There are simply too many players entering and leaving the “stage” for even political junkies, let alone average Americans, to keep track of. If I published five times a day instead of five times a week I still couldn’t cover it all. Today I’d like to discuss a name you need to remember. To date he has been a minor fringe player that has hardly received mention. That will not be the case when the final chapter is written. The name is Brain Benczkowski. Let’s explore.

President Trump’s Cabinet has come under fire by progressives from the beginning. It appears that the criticism has spread across more of the political spectrum since. Far from only the best; this Cabinet doesn’t even appear to even be one of acceptable quality. Perhaps that is why we are getting the outcomes we are. The current situation reminds me of the old computer expression GIGO (garbage in; garbage out). Let’s explore. Continue reading A Question Of Quality
I am not an expert historian on presidential cabinets but I have to think Trump’s is one of, if not, the worst ever assembled. Without referring to physical appearance, it reminds me of the bar room scene in Star Wars; which begs the question: Should Disney sue Trump? Let’s explore. Continue reading Should Disney Sue Trump?
