A Letter To Christians Who Voted for Trump

Look, I understand why frustrated blue-collar workers in the Rust-Belt states voted for Trump. When you’ve been screwed over by both major political parties as much as they have, you tend to do irrational things like vote for someone who has about as much in common with you as you would with a sheep dog.

Even David Duke Knows Who and What You Are, Mr. President

Let me be as blunt as I can here, Mr. President. You are a coward. There, I said it. I could’ve chosen any noun or adjective to describe you: ignorant, stupid, incompetent, childish, conman, opportunist, fraud, sexist, racist, they all apply, especially the last one. But coward suits you best. You can run, sir, but

Why Dems Should Take RAISE Act Seriously

Back in 2013, I had the honor of attending the graduation of my nephew from Texas A&M. I flew down to Houston the day before and rented a car to make the hour and a half trek towards College Station. Because all the hotels in town were booked, I was forced to find accommodations 10

Do Not Shed A Tear for This West Wing

One of the more amusing aspects of this travesty we call an administration has been watching the media and Democrats feel sorry for Jeff Sessions over the way Donald Trump has been treating him. Sessions, they rightly point out, from the beginning was one of his most loyal supporters. How could he humiliate him like

Unhinged

We have become unhinged. I don’t mean “crazy,” though perhaps we are crazy. We certainly think other people are crazy. Them. The other side.

Over the last seven years, Republicans have said a lot of things about the Affordable Care Act that have been proven to be false (e.g., death panels, socialized takeover of the healthcare industry). But for the last eighteen months they’ve made one claim that has, unfortunately for proponents of the ACA, been hard to refute,

The Looming Constitutional Crisis

It is now all but certain that Donald Trump will attempt to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The only questions that remain are how and when. Six months into this travesty of an administration and what we have is a West Wing in disarray, cabinet members who are in over their heads and a chief

Did Trump Inadvertently Admit To Money Laundering?

In one of the most bizarre and chilling interviews he’s ever given, Donald Trump threw Attorney General Jeff Sessions under the bus and threatened to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Okay, nothing new here. Trump has been pissed at Sessions ever since he recused himself from the Russia investigation, and everyone who hasn’t been living

Obamacare Gets A Stay of Execution . . . For Now

With the announcement that Mike Lee of Utah and Jerry Moran of Kansas have decided to vote “no” on a motion to proceed, there are now four Republican senators who have gone on record as saying they cannot support the healthcare bill “in its current form.” Susan Collins of Maine and Rand Paul of Kentucky
