I am currently reading “Holding the line” by Geoffrey Berman and sadly it is confirming what I already believed. I can hear my political adversaries saying, “Just another huckster trying to sell his book.” The book came out Tuesday and by the next day, the Senate Judiciary Committee announce… Read more

The September 1, 2022 speech presented as the “Continued Battle for the Soul of the Nation” was a necessary speech but we shouldn’t be surprised that it was never going to be universally accepted. We are too polarized. Read more

I know it’s the time of the year for a pre-season partisan political spin and we haven’t even reached Labor Day. For example, GOP tested CRT as a wedge issue but it fizzled out when it was found out that public schools are not teaching the subject. Book banning and LGBTQ issues will take the… Read more

I don’t want to get in front of my skis on this current Mar-a-Lago search warrant saga. I’m not going to predict a Trump indictment or innocence. I simply don’t know and that’s the way it should be. The affidavit must remain sealed until charges are made or the case is dismissed. Read more

Despite the constant attempts by mankind to corrupt our system of government, I remain an institutionalist. I believe we will always have Alexander Butterfields who revealed Nixon’s White House taping system existence in 1973 and people like acting Attorney General Jeffery Rosen and Deputy A… Read more

I’ve been meaning to complete this blog for quite some time but I was busy restoring Facebook and dealing with my internet connection. Unlike the local RW, I am not going to blame Facebook or RW internet goblins for trying to silence my left-of-center views. Read more

When something didn’t make any sense, Homer Simpson used to say, “It doesn’t compute.” That’s the way I feel when the other side continues to say “Nothing to see here, it’s just another Dem witch-hunt," every time they bring up the January 6 hearings. Read more

I used to have a boss who always started his lectures by saying “for the record” to let us know his feelings about a subject, so there wouldn’t be any ambiguity. Read more

I threw away the notes I had for this blog after listening to the Bill Pozzi show this morning. The two guests County Commissioner Client Ives and Sheriff Deputy Chief Will Franklin enforced what I was going to write about. Read more

Last week and part of today I searched through local Facebook feeds, the local talk shows, and The Victoria Crossroads comment section for a rebuttal to the Liz Cheney January 6 Committee opening or closing statements. I couldn’t even find any challenges to the testimony by Trump’s inner circle. Read more

I feel like our nation is like a diabetic who refuses to take medication. Just lose a little weight and nature will take its course. A little more funding for mental health and arm the staff. That’s all we can do, stuff happens. Play the blame game instead of trying to find a solution. Why h… Read more

There’s not much President Joe Biden and the late Chief Justice Antonin Scalia had in common politically but they both stated that the Second Amendment is not absolute. So why are some still believing that it is? Let’s move on. Read more

The opposition party is rooting for failure and waiting like vultures for the country to crumble. It doesn’t matter who the successor was, they were going to be the target of their frustration of losing the White House. Don’t expect a Camp David summit meeting of the minds before 2024. Read more

It’s only May 16th and I’m already reneging on my third goal of not talking about mass shootings because it’s as useless as a New Year’s resolution. It’ll be short but it’s part of my overall rant. Read more

I remember when I first started my hobby as a blogger. I had my own outside site called Politics Plus where I went by the pseudonym Democrat Mike. A kicking donkey was my avatar. My online adversaries used the donkey to describe me. Read more

A few months ago I developed this “I’m so mad as *** and I’m not going to take this anymore” attitude. The quote comes from the 1976 movie Network. Read more

Another week has gone by and it looks like the Joe Biden administration, Democrats, and those not supporting Republicans are heading toward a shellacking in November. How do I know this? Is this right-wing propaganda? No, this prognostication is coming from what most call the mainstream medi… Read more

I’m not as enthused about watching or hearing what Bill Maher has to say these days. First, he has become very anti-Islamic, and ever since his prediction about Trump not leaving office quietly turned out to be correct, he fancies himself as a political guru. Read more

I don’t know how many times my friends have answered the never-ending question from our GOP friends; “Name one good thing that Joe Biden has done since he has been in office.” My friends comply and it’s as if they said nothing. I usually give my answers in person or insert them in my blogs o… Read more

I have been watching a lot of angry GOP senators using manufactured outrage to paint a very qualified Supreme Court justice nominee as being soft on crime, heavy into activism, and waiting to impose her left-wing agenda on the American people. Read more

I don’t know how cold it was last Friday, but I did take that long walk from the parking lot to the North building of the UHV even more painful. The pain quickly turned into just exhaustion but that too went away when I started shaking the hands of old friends.  I like to say that I was in m… Read more

I have very little to say about Ukraine because it remains fluid and the ball remains on Putin's court depending on how aggressive he wants to be. So far, he has taken two regions that Putin calls independent since they are ruled by separatists. He says his troops are peacekeepers but that’s… Read more

Do you want a political tip? Do you know how you can tell if the Jan. 6 Committee is getting close to exposing all those who were involved in the attempted coup of the 2020 presidential election? Watch for right-wing to make numerous mentions of Hunter Biden and Hillary Clinton. I.e., Recent… Read more

This morning I surprised my conservative buddy by asking him if he thought the January 6 siege on our Capitol was “legitimate political discourse.” He said, “Is that all you called me for?”  I reminded him that turnabout was fair play but he never did answer my question. We then switched the… Read more

My conservative friends think I am being overdramatic when I keep insisting that we are losing our democracy. I guess it’s no different when I laugh at their second amendment and freedom concerns. Read more

I was expecting and received a call from my conservative friend telling me that he might go back to watching main stream media. I knew he was referring to the gloom and doom Sunday talk shows. The shows provided him with what he wanted to hear: inflation is up and so are the COVID-19 cases, … Read more
