Kushner Blames Assistant

Scapegoating in the White House is apparently contagious. New headline: Kushner blames his assistant for hitting the “send” button too soon. Hmm. There’s a problem or two with that scenario. Kushner’s comment makes no sense – at all – because… 1) you would not be filling out a form via email, therefore no “send” button. […]

The Disrespect of Senator Kamala Harris

The disrespect of Senator Kamala Harris during hearings in recent days reminds us that we are not as civilized a society as some would like to believe. This type of disrespect, especially to someone with such an impressive background, simply wreaks of prejudice and entitlement. If that were not the case, then you would see […]

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad. This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of […]

So many of us are refreshed as we #feelthebern and many democrats and independents are desperately hoping that Bernie Sanders can pull out […]

Thou Shalt Not Make Broad Generalizations

Earlier this week, Ari Fleisher was on Anderson Cooper’s show on CNN. It was a fairly interesting exchange regarding current politics, but one of his comments has stuck with me so I decided to vent about it here. By no means is he the only person that has made broad generalization statements that mislead the […]

Character in a Presidential Candidate

I’m not so proud of many things I did as a young person, but I can honestly say that I never intentionally hurt anyone, physically or otherwise. Mitt Romney’s “hijinks” (as he calls them) as a senior in his “prep” high school which involved holding a gay boy down and cutting his hair, seem to […]

Police REFUSE to arrest occupy protesters

On Sunday, October 23, 2011, the law enforcement officers of Albany, New York, made a startling decision to IGNORE the requests of their mayor and governor. Finally, sanity prevails. With protesters acting peacefully, local and state police agreed that low level arrests could cause a riot, so they decided instead to defy Cuomo and Jennings. […]
