As the weather outside starts to get warmer, many Victoria residents are emerging from their long winter’s nap to get some sun and fresh air. If you’re looking to get out of the house, Parks & Recreation has you covered with a variety of parks, walking trails and other outdoor spaces. Read more

I still think the hypocrisy of the left or right is way overused in today’s politics. Of course, when your guy/gal is in office it’s commonplace to overlook the position you took during that  time frame. We can now insert a new president’s name to complete our derangement syndrome comment.  Read more

The thing I enjoy about an in-person political discussion is the need to rely on evidence and a thought process. Talking points from a confirmation bias source won’t do the trick. At least that’s been the case in the many in-person political discussions I have been involved in. Read more

I am a member of a couple of online political groups that lean left. I’m guessing 80% are established Democrats, 5% are Trumplicans, 10% are progressives and 5% are nonaffiliated. Since the election, those sites are relatively quiet. I’m assuming those on the right exited for Parler, the pro… Read more

By this time in 48 hours we should have the results of the most contentious election since, well, four years ago. Campaigning has never been this ugly since, okay, four years ago. But if you want some genuine bile, go back to 1804 when John Adams faced Thomas Jefferson for his second term. T… Read more

Regardless of the good national and battleground polls, I will be a jittery Democrat for the next five days.  It’s not that the president will pull out a Biden scandal, the economy will suddenly bounce back or that the coronavirus is on its way out. I’m afraid of the repeat of the 2000 Bush … Read more

The subject of Abortion is a volatile one. I get it that women want control of their bodies and I get it that life is sacred and not ours to take. Read more

I enjoyed last night’s debate because it gave my candidate another chance to distinguish himself from Donald Trump. The debate moderator did an outstanding (I didn’t expect perfection) job of making it more like debates we have seen in previous years. Presidential debates have never been a b… Read more

The first political book I have ever read was “The Agenda” by Bob Woodward. The book described how George Stephanopoulos, James Carville, and Paul Begala set up a war room to answer all the criticism in real-time. A tactic of getting ahead of the story by debunking the lies and spinning the … Read more

Last night’s vice president’s debate was everything I expected except for the fly and Pence’s eye. Mike Pence was a toned-down Donald Trump who was evasive and rude to the moderator and Kamala Harris. On the other side, Kamala Harris also evaded some questions but more on that later. Kamala … Read more

I can’t believe people are surprised at the conduct of last night’s debate. Did you not watch the 2016 GOP debates? Donald Trump did the exact same thing in his three debates against Hillary. I guess people were expecting a civil debate. Trump’s behavior was vintage Trump. As Joe Biden kept … Read more

As I am approaching the ripe old age of 75, I am now convinced that I am wasting the precious few years I have left on this earth arguing unwinnable arguments. Read more

A major part of the United States is burning and the toxic smoke is passing over states not engulfed in flames but climate change will not be a major voting issue. Burning, looting, and property destruction will be a major voting issue, although the chaos only happens at 7% of the areas wher… Read more

Saturday night I made the mistake of reposting a Joe Lockhart tweet that turned out to be a FAKE Donald Trump tweet. The 2018 tweet quoted Trump calling Tammie Duckworth “Lt.  No legs” and I stated that it was a new low for Trump. The fact that I reposted a tweet from a former Democrat consu… Read more

In 63 days, America will choose the direction it wants to go. We may not know who won the presidential election on Nov. 3 because one or two states will still be counting, but we’ll have a good idea by looking at the results of the down-ballot candidates. All the votes won’t have to be in. H… Read more

Politics is the only show available now that big-time sports are being played in a bubble without fans in the stands. It’s weird watching the air high fives after a player hits a walk-off home run. Read more
