Yesterday, I watched Governor Cuomo’s press conference and came away impressed. Yes, it’s New York but right now that city and state are at the epic center of this virus pandemic in the United States. The governor didn’t get out of his lane and just explained the logistics. To a reporter’s q… Read more

After I finished reading “The Second Amendment” by Michael Waldman, I began to understand the difference between the left and the right. Read more

I don’t know where the expression that I used in my headline came from but from what I found it originated in “England, from around the year 1608, from a play called The Christmas Prince: … Laugh on laugh on my friend. He laugheth best that laugheth to the end.” Read more

I watched all eight hours of Wednesdays’ Oversight Committee hearing not so much for the expected dog and pony show but to hear what Michael Cohen had to say.

We don’t have a crisis at our southern border despite what President Trump and his small legion of followers would like us to believe. What we have is a 400% spike from last year in apprehensions of people seeking asylum.  Read more

I’m glad Nov. 6 has come and gone, thinking it will take away some of this madness. We have both sides thinking they are superior to the other and are talking past each other. Read more

President Trump admitted that he was a “nationalist.” He said it in front of his gullible crowd, at his recent Houston rally for his new friend, Senator Ted Cruz.” Now he is Beautiful Ted Cruz, instead of Lying Ted. The president said ‘You know, they have a word. It sort of became old-fashio… Read more

Last week I completed Michael Lewis’s latest book “The Fifth Risk.” The book details how the right has controlled the narrative for so long, that the left often plays the game as a visitor, instead of the home team. i.e. Government is always bad, private sector is always right. Read more

Thursday’s Beto O’Rourke town hall meeting was well worth the two hours I spent in that hall. Before Beto’s 35-minute speech, I enjoyed District 27 Congressional candidate Eric Holguin’s opening remarks and Omar Rashid’s introductory remarks.
