Totally Lacking Judgment

September 16, 2016

ow obvious can Donald Trump’s lack of judgment can be? Total. For years he has famously led the tin hats of the conspiracy theory that Obama was born in Kenya.

Looking In the Wrong Direction

May 8, 2016

oving, a few necessary trips and scheduling a few more joint replacements, added to trying to do sufficient research for the books I’m working on, don’t leave much time for this blog. You likely aren’t too disappointed on the occasions I find a substitute to expound on an important issue. Here’s another such time. This […]

Another Hillary Disaster

April 16, 2016

t is beyond belief that anyone could trust the honesty, competency or judgment of Hillary Clinton. While she has a head-full of wonk, there is no proof that she has mastered it. She had essentially total control of the effort to reform healthcare back in 1993. How did that work out? There is no question that […]

The Reagan Voodoo Legacy

March 21, 2015

irst, a few warnings. This article is on economics, the justly termed ‘dismal science.’ True, it’s not all that entertaining but it is worthwhile. It is my longest post ever, 4 to 5 times as long as usual. Still, it merits everyone’s attention. Lastly, I didn’t write it. Aaah. My apologies. It is a cut-and-paste […]

Cowards, Traitors and Idiots

March 11, 2015

ere I was, all ready to write letters of thanks to the two senators from my home state. Silly me. Why would I even contemplate such an uncharacteristic act?

You Don’t Matter

June 2, 2014

eally? God is hate? If you believe that these Republican leaders and their toadies are Christians, then one can draw no other conclusion. As a child I heard that people fear what they do not understand. It appears that Republicans have conflated fear with hate. It is the easiest strategy for appealing to bigots, racists, […]
