C’mon Mueller – Indict Already

It hasn’t been two years yet and already I am suffering from Trump fatigue. The constant stupid tweets. The incessant trade wars. The drone of insults for everybody. Each and every day there is something new. And I suspect Robert Mueller has been overwhelmed with the crimes and conspiracies. But where will it end? How […]

Legalizing Weed

In regards to legalizing marijuana, I would like to discuss this statement from Majority Leader Paul Gazelka…. “It’s important to consider the many negative consequences that come with legalizing recreational marijuana,” Gazelka told the Dispatch in a statement. “Car accidents and addiction rates have increased in states that have legalized it, health care costs are […]

The Indignant Left

I call them the indignant left. These are the progressives who seem to believe that our supported policies should just magically come to pass and the “establishment” needs to get out of the way. Rubbish. I am as progressive as the next person – hell, I could be put on the socialist spectrum. But I […]

I No Longer Want Trump Impeached

Democrats had a big win on Tuesday…and it just keeps getting better. Even the losses were so close that the Republicans are frantic about holding them. But that has brought me full circle on Trump. I no longer want him impeached. He is the Democratic ticket back to power. The insane reaction to the thumping […]

Predictions

I usually get burned on this (especially 2016), but I forge ahead anyway because, heck, why not? It is only personal thoughts and what is going to happen is up to the fates at this point. So, let me get right to it. Nationally, the Democrats are going to take the House with about a […]

“A Sense of Duty”

We all remember “Sully” Sullenberger. The pilot who handled the “miracle on the Hudson”. He saved the lives of 155 people and did so with humble grace and leadership of the highest order. Sullenberger doesn’t engage much in the political realm. He shuns the partisan back and forth. But Donald Trump changed that this year […]

The Results for Lying

Trump lies. I know this is nothing new, but we seem to fail to understand the consequences of that. We have become desensitized to it. Trump lies. No big deal anymore. But it is a big deal. The President speaks for us. (at least in theory). And when the words of the President are not […]

Schizo OptiPessimism

I have been going through the entire spectrum of emotions over the last week. I get optimistic over the House; I get pessimistic over the House. I get excited about the Senate; I get depressed about the Senate. It is an endless cycle of rollercoaster feelings. November 6 cannot come fast enough. I try to […]

Dystopia

So according to Trump – men should NEVER admit to any kind of wrongdoing in regards to sexual assault or harassment. Apparently Al Franken was weak in that regard. Republicans reward denials and attack the women. And so far, it works…. At some point, there has to be a reckoning. This election in November is […]
