The SARS-CoV-2 outbreak and resulting COVID-19 disease are wreaking havoc upon the world as I write this, and are obviously extensively covered on a continual basis. I’m not an expert and have nothing of value I can add to the advice and cautions of the actual experts, although on a personal note, I will share […]


The South Carolina Primary election has come and gone, and I didn’t vote for Amy Klobuchar. I think she’d make a fine President, and I would support her wholeheartedly if she were the Democratic nominee for President. But I am not a Democrat and ultimately, the issues won out for me. Imagine a $15 minimum […]

It was always a foregone conclusion that the impeachment trial of Donald Trump would result in an acquittal. The founders of our nation didn’t even want impeachment in the Constitution in the first place. They assumed that one who reached the highest office would be a person of great integrity and moral character that the […]

Donald J. Trump was impeached, and always will be, as William J. Clinton was. His presidency will be marred by it, along with his track record of deceit, racism, divisiveness and lawlessness. The impeachment trial itself was fascinating to watch, as was the thorough analysis of the process in real time by historians, former members […]

I’ve taken the I Side With test before, and so I knew the likely result. But in light of the dramatically changed political environment since the historic 2016 election, I wanted to do a deep analysis; answering every question, not just the suggested ones, looking at every possible answer, reading the “learn more” sections when […]

I am moved by the passionate and thorough arguments presented by the House managers on the Senate floor in the impeachment trial of Donald Trump. As I watch the votes, two of them thus far, I am also moved by watching in real time, the death knell of the American experiment in self-governance. This is […]

I haven’t written for quite some time, primarily because the impetus for this blog and the eventual book I self-published, was religion. Specifically, that religions are false. The premise is false, the histories wildly embellished and in many cases completely fabricated, and the gods we invented are figments of our imaginations. At some point, there’s […]

I’ve never understood Trump’s appeal. I never saw his show on TV, but whenever I saw him on a talk show, he seemed like a buffoon to me. He was always spouting nonsense and bragging about himself. I dismissed him quite easily. When he was running for President, it seemed like more of the same. […]

1600 Pennsylvania Ave has probably seen its share of unsavory types over the years, but I doubt any were as blatantly corrupt and lacking in any respect for the office as the current occupant. It’s not surprising to anyone who has any knowledge of his history in business. He’s all about making a buck in […]

As Dr. Gregory House taught us; it’s a fundamental truth of the human condition: everyone lies. The only variable is about what. The insane thing about Trump is that while he lies so much and so often, about literally anything, he is so awful at it. There’s nothing even remotely believable about a Trump lie. […]
