The Impeachment of Donald J Trump

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 […]

Writer’s Indifference

My lack of output could be construed as the proverbial block often attributed to those who put words on paper. It’s actually a combination of not wanting to merely create content, but to write something meaningful, and ambivalence over the current state of affairs. I read a decent piece on Slate which criticized the online […]

Cockstrong

I will first admit that I was wrong. In my previous scribblings about the GOP nomination for President, I incorrectly conjectured that Donald Trump would be gone after Super Tuesday. Like most predictions and prophecies, mine fell flat. While Nate Silver and the fine folks at Five Thirty Eight have dug deep and analyzed that […]

New Hampshire GOP voters shock thinking world

Republican voters in New Hampshire went to the polls and cast votes in their state’s primary election, and stunned anyone who thinks by advocating for a fraudulent, petulant blowhard to lead the nation. I understand anger and voter frustration. I understand the evolutionary underpinnings of tribalism and Trump appeals to that deep-seated emotional and irrational […]

The Show Must Not Go On

Politics can be a spectacle. I mean it’s not supposed to be entertainment since it’s pretty serious business, but at least during the campaign cycle, before any actual decisions are made that could wreak havoc, it can be fantastically enjoyable in the way a really campy movie can be enjoyable. In that respect, I actually […]

The Dynamic Duo of Trump and Carson on Religion

It defies logic and probability that all of America’s political leaders are people of faith, yet none espouse their lack of faith publicly, particularly those seeking the Republican nomination for the highest office in the land. I always enjoy the early campaigning in the political cycle because we get to see people mount an effort […]

Treason

Senators think a lot of themselves, and perhaps with some legitimate reason. After all, they were elected by a majority of the local yokels in their state to represent their interests in Congress. It’s kind of a big deal. Unfortunately, the reality of the day-to-day job of Senators, particularly those with further political aspirations, has […]

God, Rape and the Abortion problem

Once again abortion has made its way to the front of the public debate on policy and in a substantial way. A Romney presidency could mean the end of the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in the United States. [i] The GOP Platform includes severe restrictions in a woman’s right to have an […]

Dogs, the Rhythm Method and a Moon Base

The run-up to the nomination of the eventual GOP standard bearer has moved into decidedly hysterical territory. Apparently the thought of a Moon Base, which Mr. Gingrich emphasized would naturally be an American Moon Base, satisfied my neighbors in SC, and they decided that Newt Gingrich would make a fine President (further illustrating my need […]

The GOP Candidates for President: Part VII-The Texan

While the GOP field of Presidential candidates is busily courting Iowa voters and has already had two debates, one man looks to step into the ring on his own schedule. Rick Perry, Governor of Texas, announced today that he would be requesting another podium be added to the stage for the next debate. Governor Perry […]
