America has become morally bankrupt

While I am not the least bit surprised that Trump dictated his medical report which his doctor then signed, I am now more convinced than ever that America has become morally bankrupt. When I was applying to college in the 70s, I had to have two people provide references. It was a popular Southern Baptist […]

THE RESISTANCE

I listened as they called my President a Muslim. I listened as they called him and his family a pack of monkeys. I listened as they said he wasn’t born here. I watched as they blocked every single path to progress that they could. I saw the pictures of him as Hitler. I watched them […]

Trump is Our President

Even though the majority of voters cast their vote for Hillary Clinton, our laws are such that Donald Trump won the election. Donald Trump is our president. It’s true. There is no need to go around saying “he’s not my president.” That statement is a lie. Technically, legally, and literally speaking – Trump is our […]

The Trump Cabinet – least educated cabinet

The Trump cabinet is going to be the least educated cabinet in recent history. Shaun King wrote an excellent article regarding the lack of education and the stark difference between what black people expect and what rich white people expect to achieve, especially in regards to White House appointments. The article was written last month. […]

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 […]

Feelthebern

I watched the debate last night and today heard some good news. More than 10 million viewers tuned in to watch the Democratic Debate last night and it was a substantial debate. So many of us are refreshed as we #feelthebern and many democrats and independents are desperately hoping that Bernie Sanders can pull out […]

Obama wept

A few days ago our President wept as he spoke of the massacre of children at Sandy Hook Elementary in 2012. If you are one who speaks of this event in mockery, I feel sorry for you and because of you I feel even sorrier for our nation. For it is people like you who have […]

One War is One Too Many

I don’t know who this young man is or where he is from, but when I look at this photo I just want to hug him and take him to his home – just snatch him right out of there. Opinions on war have never been more important than they are right now – during […]

John McCain an Honest Man

Watching the Republican convention was almost unbearable until the arrival of John McCain, an honest man. Listening to his speech reminded me of what the Republican party once stood for – integrity, honesty, and compassion for all. I couldn’t help but notice that every time McCain spoke of things the Republicans had done, he spoke […]

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 […]

Executive Order on Abortion

What an interesting turn things have taken today regarding the debates on health care reform.  The President has offered to issue an Executive Order restricting abortion, but many Republicans are now stating “live” on TV, that Executive Orders are useless. Really? NO! Executive orders do have the full force of law AND, the courts have […]
