Politics

Land Of The Fleeced, Home Of The Played

“Oh say can you see, any democracy? If you can, please understand It won’t come from the G.O.P.” Here is a statement of fact you won’t hear very often. Our government as it stands now, our businesses, and far too large a section of our populace absolutely abhor the people. They write laws, bribe those

Semantics

Let’s assume your boss calls you into their office, tells you to close the door and sit down. If you’re like me, you’re probably thinking, “Oh, shit, what’d I do now?” But let’s leave my insecurity out of it for now, shall we? Your boss hands you a piece a paper with a name and

Call It A Night, Hillary

There’s this scene from the seminal movie A Night To Remember where Kenneth More’s character, Second Officer Charles Lightoller, is having a discussion with a passenger in one of the Titanic’s lifeboats as the rescue ship Carpathia arrives on the scene to pick up the survivors, and it goes like this: Passenger: “Would that be

Orange Privileges, Immunities & Atrocities

Poised as we are just before a hallowed holiday weekend, and in further honor of the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars as well as our nation’s foremost motor-car race, reporting on the Trump-fueled daily disasters is just “coming in too fast.” The clown-car demolition derby leading up to his first ill-fated big-boy trip, the emblematic

Don’t Confuse Donald Trump With A Businessman

I’ve been hearing the above statement – or something similar – from a lot of people ever since il Duce rose to power. The failures of the Trump Administration, they argue, is proof positive that you can’t elect business people to run the government. It’s simply beyond their capabilities to handle. To which I say,

Hacking of Minds

The Russian hacking of our Presidential election is no longer in doubt. However, there are some misunderstandings about it. Some on social media clearly think it was our ballot boxes that were hacked. It wasn’t our ballot boxes that were hacked; it was the minds of the electorate. Why were we so gullible? James Clapper

Now It’s Mueller’s Investigation

The announcement by Rod Rosenstein that he has appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to take over the Russia investigation is encouraging, and for two reasons: First, it’s a ray of hope for millions of Americans who were rightly concerned that the wheels were coming off this democracy. Two, it’s a thorough rebuke to this

What Schumer and the Dems Need To Do Regarding Comey’s Replacement

It’s nice that Chuck Schumer is drawing his own red line by demanding that any new FBI director not be a “partisan politician” from “either party,” and that voting on James Comey’s replacement might be contingent upon the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate Donald Trump and his administration. Unfortunately for Schumer, Democrats only

A Line Has Been Crossed

This nightmare will soon be over. A line has been crossed. Now, there is no plausible way to salvage the Trump presidency. Impeachment or resignation will not be enough. Either result would remove one person from power, but every member of the administration has been implicated in the cover-up – or worse. They are all

The Coup Begins

Let me state this as bluntly as I can. If you think for a moment that Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey because of the way he handled the Clinton email server investigation last year, I would strongly advise you to stay out of Vegas for the foreseeable future; you’ll lose your shirt and
