The Third Pillar

For years I have said that the three pillars upon which the modern Republican Party stands are greed, racism/bigotry and the promotion of ignorance. I am among those who feel that Trump is not an anomaly but an inevitable outcome of modern Republican politics. When he falls from power we will hear Republicans say that he was not really them. That will be another lie. Last week we saw further proof of this. Let’s explore. Continue reading The Third Pillar

Betrayal Of The Troops And Veterans

President Trump is almost devoid of a political agenda. Other than an organized criminal enterprise I really can’t think of what his administration is or what it stands for.

While we can’t give our veterans a blank check for the rest of their lives I feel we are not doing enough for most of them and certainly don’t begrudge them the benefits they are receiving. Despite their rhetoric, I can’t say the Republicans have that same respect. A distasteful example of that largely flew under the radar last week and today I’d like to expose it. Let’s explore.
