Reopening America is Our Only Choice

We must reopen the country.  Because we have no other choice.  To think otherwise means you genuinely believe someone or something from the government will eradicate the virus while saving your livelihood and providing security at the same time.  It will not happen.  It has not happened in the first six months and nothing will…

Ukraine is Terminal for Trump

After the Mueller Report was made public, I did not think impeachment was the way to go.  Trump would not be convicted, and it was a political loser.  Almost certain to help Trump in the 2020 election.  The Ukraine situation is much different.  It is an egregious offense and Americans and Congress can not let…

The Summer of Democratic Candidates

This summer is it.  The field of 23 Democratic candidates will become a handful of legitimate candidates.  Here is my take on where they stand, and what the summer has in store for them. Joe Biden I worry about a Joe Biden candidacy.  Hillary and Obama’s sidekick.  As if their portraits are tattooed on his…

Democrats are Incompetent Losers

I am an Independent.  But have mostly voted for Democrats.  Not because I embrace liberalism, but I believed they were the only party that would operate somewhat on behalf of the 99%.  I voted for George W. Bush in 2004 and what happened in the next 4 years made me feel terrible.  Like the biggest…

All Senate Races are National Races

When you think about the changing political landscape in the United States a few things pop.  Congress is a body with two pieces, and together they are useless.  Meaningful legislation is rarely passed on issues that concern all Americans.  Healthcare, Immigration, Budget Reform, Infrastructure, Campaign Finance, and the list goes on and on.  Then you…

A Higher Loyalty by James Comey

I had genuine excitement when purchasing this book.  James Comey is free to speak his mind on anything not classified or related to a current investigation.  To me, a very interesting and important figure.  Not only for what happened to him last year, but for his lengthy career serving under several Presidents of different parties,…

The Final Tax Bill is Corps Over Humans

The final tax bill details are in.  It is better.  Many of the deductions were preserved for the middle class.  This is good.  The student loan deduction stays.  SALT deductions up to $10,000 stay.  Child tax credit increased to $2000 and up to $1400 is refundable.  This is good for all families and more in…
