DEMOCRATIC PARTY DRAFT TICKET: PELOSI-MUELLER

Our Country needs an Intervention. We need the best we’ve got. Nancy Pelosi and Bob Mueller are the best we’ve got. Donald Trump and Sarah Sanders and Stephen Miller and Jared Kushner and Robert Barr are not the best we have. They’ve shown themselves to be a second string collection of liars and opportunists who

OBSERVATIONS. NO. 1

  HAS TRUMP HACKED THE POLLS? How hard would it be to hack the polls? Not very hard at all. Why would anyone want to? Think about where we are now. The Conventional Wisdom holds that Trump can’t be removed from office because his base is still with him. We “know” his base is still

REP ILHAN OMAR AND IMMANUEL KANT…PLUS TROPES AND DOPES

I’m for Ilhan Omar. She’s got guts. And, to put it more elegantly, she has the right to call herself a Kantian. She’s earned that right. Tell me more, you say. Immanuel Kant, German Philosopher ( 1724-1804 ) defined an “enlightened person” as someone who has the “courage to use their own understanding without the

TALLEST MAN IN THE ROOM AND OTHER STUFF

Five foot six inch Sheldon Adelson, the self described “tallest person in the room when I sit on my wallet”, hasn’t forgotten he paid for a war with Iran…not a wall with Mexico. Sheldon, who has increased his net worth a little over a billion dollars per year every year for the last thirty years,

TRUMP: DUMB LIKE A FOX

Just when you think the best you can expect from our President is that he get through the day without mistaking the Queen of England for the Dalai Lama, Trump hits a policy bullseye. Specifically, on December 19, 2018, out of the blue, Trump announces the transfer of 2,000 American troops out of Syria. I

TRUMP. ADELSON. PELOSI.

Donald Trump loves the image of himself sauntering across the stage showing a clenched fist or better yet…two clinched fists. Like he is actually in charge of something. Or, maybe a former war hero basking in well earned adulation. Hardly, on both counts. Trump is a fraud. He is a kept man. He does what

NANCY PELOSI GETS A LIFE

In 1987, the Congresswoman in the Northern California District where Nancy Pelosi lived, Rep. Sala Burton, died of cancer. Before she died, Sala asked Nancy to consider running for her congressional seat when it became vacant. At the time, the youngest of Nancy’s five children was a senior in high school. Nancy decided she had

EVERYTHING IS COMING APART

Everything is coming apart.There’s no place to hide. We depend upon each others sanity. We drive down a two lane road betting the car coming towards us is not being driven by a homicidal/suicidal maniac. We live in a state of mutual dependency. We assume our leaders have a modicum of good will and sanity

LIARS CREEPS SUCK-UPS AND SAUDIS

We’re being governed by liars, creeps, and suck-ups. What other words would you use to describe Jared Kushner, John Bolton, Giggling Mike Pompeo, Chuckling Prince Mohammad bin Salman, Donald (He Denies It) Trump, and the behavior of the Trump Administration in the aftermath of the gruesome murder and dismemberment of an American Resident inside the

HIT HIM IN THE BASE

You want to beat Trump? Hit him in the base. But in a nice way. Sort of like how Reagan beat Carter and Kennedy beat Nixon and Obama beat Romney. Cheerful, with a bit of self deprecating humor, not angry. More mensch not momzer. (Harry Truman was a mensch, Rick Santorum a momzer). What we
