The (Bad) Boys’ Club

“Remember all men would be tyrants if they could.” That is a quote from a March 1776 letter Abigail Adams wrote to her husband John. I’m not sure that is completely true, but it seems to me that all the world’s current tyrants and wannabe tyrants are male. If you, like the majority of my readers, is an American you can do something about not allowing the membership of the club to grow.

5 Dirty Dozens And 4 Dishonorable Mentions

I think this is the first time I felt I had to use Tuesday’s article to review the previous week. That is a reflection of how bad it is getting in Washington.

In that spirit America will need to ask the world for a lot of forgiveness for what we have done during the Trump administration and we saw another example of that this week. The only thing I have to offer in “exchange” is a suggested Democratic slogan for the 2020 presidential campaign; hardly a good trade. With all that in mind; let’s explore.   Continue reading Enduring Damage And a Slogan

Are You Winning With Trump? Vlad Is!

To me there was no lone story last week that was the biggest in American politics; there was a collecting when taken together that is of historic proportion. In the following paragraphs I will attempt to briefly cover several of them. The article will be lengthy but I’m certain still incomplete. Let’s explore. Continue reading Are You Winning With Trump?
