I was having one of those “grandpa moments” earlier today. I was wondering how I was going to describe the first few weeks after Trump exited the White House to my youngest grandson a few years from now. (Thankfully he is currently too young to be paying any attention. Snow, toy monster trucks and superheroes are taking up his days at the moment.) I finally decided on using the analogy of a rash. Like a rash Trump is fading away but he is still persistent and annoying. In that vein I’ll do a “cleanup” article today. Continue reading America’s Rash

In any event, please come along and let’s explore. Continue reading Closing Arguments – Part One
What If It’s Scorched Earth?
I often think I learned more during the fifteen seasons I coached high school or college basketball than from my formal education. In coaching one of the keys to victory is to ascertain your opponent’s strategy. You assumed their goal was to win. Those lessons are applicable to politics and elections. What if your opponent is an incumbent who has decided they cannot win and therefore their goal is to destroy as much as possible on their way out the door? President Trump appears to be acting that way. Let’s explore. Continue reading What If It’s Scorched Earth?
