Maybe…

…the fact that we have become so diametrically opposed in nearly equal measure, requires a step-back, unemotional reassessment.  The utter chaos of our politics, the snarky “gotchas” by liberal pundits and the “oh no you dints!” of the Trumpers has suddenly brought to mind, (well, my questioning, cacophonous, unwrinkling remnant…

Trump Gifts Country Extra Hour Mar-a-Lago, FL – In a gesture of his benevolence, President Donald J. Trump has gifted an hour of additional time to all Americans except those living in Arizona, Hawaii, American Samoa, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.  It is unknown, at this time, if the…

Choice

When all is said and done, (I just realized what a stupid phrase that is…since it’s always followed by something, nullifying its basic premise that all has been said or that anything is ever done), in democracies, like ours, it’s about choice.  In its purest form, we choose by majority…

Phew!

P.S.

And one more, (maybe more than one), thing… Stop with the hearings!  You’re simply pissing off the choir and emboldening the Kool-Aid®-slurping-Stepford-People who are not going to be swayed by your incredulous ineptitude at uncovering the truth.  Of course, I still truly believe that our team has the smartest players,…

Dear Dems

Enough already!  Enough with the stupid, pretend debates and snarky sniping at one another!  Enough trying to find bullet points and leverage and poll surge and demographic acceptance!  Right now, in this unique moment in time when the world is literally spinning out of control, it is first and foremost…

Friends

Politics?  What politics? I have been obsessed, for as long as I can remember, with friendship, the inexplicable human attraction that, in its most basic form, cannot be parsed, diagrammed or explained in reliably irrefutable language.  We have all experienced or observed the phenomenon.  Thirty or so preschoolers, previously unknown…

Fire!

It’s the one word, when shouted in public, that will get everybody’s immediate and undivided attention.  I just thought I’d give it a try.  Of course, it’s also one of those Freedom of Speech exceptions if misused, so, you better be damned sure there’s something burning, or even your best intentions…
