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

The Nuclear Option

President Trump has repeatedly urged the Senate Majority Leader (Mitch McConnell) to use the nuclear option. What is that? I have rewritten this first paragraph six times. I am not a good enough writer to thoroughly explain supermajorities and when they are used. I think that I am good at explaining things, so it just

Would You Lie for Me?

I am not referring to the line from Notorious B.I.G.’s song, Would You Die for Me.  I am talking about the hot topic for the last five days.  That is what Democrat Chuck Durbin reported about a bi-partisan meeting where President Trump said, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries coming here?”  He went on to
