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 […]

Jason Lewis : Gutless, Clueless or Both ?

The Republican Party lost its House majority on July 28, 2017, when Sen. John McCain ended the party’s seven-year quest to repeal ObamaCare.
Which begs the question, if Jason Lewis really felt that the problem was in the Senate, why didn’t he raise his finger and seek a seat in the Senate?

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 […]

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 […]
