Election 2020 The Aftermath
Observations about events current and from the past
Often I will get mailings from the Reagan Ranch showing beautiful young people learning there from great educators and conservative politicians about the best of American capitalism. These mailings always lift my heart. Maybe there is hope yet. And these young people will grow and flower to spread love of our system and our great […]
America at a Crossroad
There is much to be alarmed about these days. In my 85 years I can’t recall being as down on our prospects for The United States survival as I was last week, watching the farce, and knowing that more is to come, to keep Trump entangled in legal problems, and bringing shadows over him for […]
Getting Things Done in Congress
Part one: A recapitulation of the human comedy we call getting things done for Congress A few weeks ago we were fascinated to watch the drawn out election of The Speaker of the House. At first I must admit I was worried because Republicans had a lot to try to undo and a lot on […]
I read this week, and I believe it is correct, that Biden, or his handlers, decided to do the Trump raid right before the election because they knew the Biden info was there and they would not be able to contain it forever. They were relieved when they were able to keep it out of […]
My Two Cents
Last night Hannity had Congresswoman Boebert on and he kept asking her the question if 90% of the Republicans are satisfied with McCarthy and you, a small group, are not, how long will you keep up this fight? His implication was why are you being so stubborn? We have important work that needs to get […]
Does Mastriano have a chance to win the governor’s race in PA?
This is a two parter. First there are the usual ways the left sabotages their opponents. But there is some self sabotage by the GOP and in the campaign going on as well. Then there will be an assessment of Mastriano as a candidate. This article was composed during the month of September. It began […]
Which would you be? The stormtroopers, or the victims?
A depressing and pessimistic essay or a cautionary tale? I have been thinking a lot about the Third Reich of late. It is hard not to. If I go dancing I must wear a mask and if I take it off to breathe or take a moment’s respite because with heart disease and asthma it […]
A Tale of Two Speeches
It was the worst of speeches, it was the best of speeches. It was a speech of foolishness, it was a speech of wisdom. It was a speech of incredulity, it was a speech of belief. It was a speech of darkness, it was a speech of light. It was a speech of rage and […]
Write your own play!
The thought that it is long dead white men who have written famous works or founded our country, for some, leads to the question why their work should be relevant to us today. Perhaps thinking about that question Lin Manuel Miranda, inspired by a biography of Alexander Hamilton that he read, decided to create a […]
What does the left really want?
It is not norms that the left wants to return to. It is not decency. It is not fewer bad tweets. It is not white supremacists the left fears as they so often posit as the worst danger we face. It is not Nazi behavior of Trump and his followers that we must stop. It […]
