IlHAN OMAR IS GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT

Of all the possible people in the world there are to worry about, you can take Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) off your list for now. She’s going to be OK. The little lady went through a rough patch but came out just fine. After escaping war-torn Somalia and living in a refugee camp four years

SEVEN WITH A CHANCE…AMY ON FIRE…PLUS COUNTRY BOYS

KAMALA HARRIS. Smoking hot with the eye of the tiger. Great listener. Infectious laugh. Lots of charm. Smart. Tough. Charismatic. Question: Can our President and our Dominatrix be the same person? AMY KLOBUCHAR. As they say in the South, “You say you like Amy Klobuchar, I been liking her.” Calm. Almost sleepy. Very smart. Not

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

WEARING HIS FATHER’S SHOES

In 1988, fifty-five year old, recently divorced, Sheldon Adelson took his first trip to Israel. He was wearing the shoes of his deceased Lithuanian–born Jewish father. By 1988 Sheldon had come a long way from Dorchester, MA. He was the creator and owner of COMDEX, a successful computer trade show business in Las Vegas and

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

I KNOW I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE

I know I’m not the only one who likes and has supported Barack Obama and ended up supporting Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation as a Justice of the Supreme Court. How could that be you ask. Easy. In politics, hate (or dislike) is a far stronger motivator than love (or like). That’s not my bright idea, it’s
