Putting It In Context

The news at the moment is flooded with the volleyball handling of the “dreamers”.  Those people who were brought into America illegally as children.  But that is not what I am here to discuss.  I am here to talk about the entire group of people who came into the United States illegally.  Mexico is by

Stephen Colbert, like a real genius

Thank you, Stephen.  You are one of the reasons I have any sanity left at all.  I’m sure the Republicans out there if you haven’t left yet are doubting that I have any. As hard as it is to believe I never heard of Colbert until he started taking pot shots at Trump.  Apparently, I

The Children’s Deaths Are on You

On February 28th, 2017 President Trump signed a bill into law which rolled back an Obama initiative aimed at keeping people with mental illness from buying guns.  Yesterday afternoon a teenager who had been expelled came back on campus with an AR-15 assault rifle and killed 17 people.  Nineteen-year-old Nikolas Cruz wounded another fourteen people.  Five of those have

Welcome Back, My Friends, to the Show That Never Ends

The title comes from the lyrics of a 70’s band called Emerson, Lake, and Palmer.  The song is Karn Evil 9.  The lyrics are worth looking up and reading through.  It describes our situation with amazing insight from nearly a half-century ago.  In my opinion, the Karn Evil is a metaphor for an evil carnival. 

Are we at or past the edge of too much?

At some point, the G.O.P. ‘s bending, twisting and stretching of the laws to protect mine Fuehrer’s truly bizarre behavior will reach a point that people must make Trump face the piper.  It is time for his sycophants to join him in a court of law, to be held accountable.  David Nunes, the Chair of the
