A Fourth Party President

The Republicans are freaking out about Donald Trump’s refusal to rule out a 3rd party run. And why would he rule it out? He is the frontrunner now. If he shows a lack of confidence in himself or his dedication to this run, he may lose supporters. It’s part of what people love about him. […]

THE DECEPTIVE MISUSE OF LEGISLATOR VOTING RECORDS

The Banking Oligarchs

Can anyone stop the overweening lunacy of the banking oligarchs? No more than anyone can stop pythons from devouring rabbits at play. Our bankers are not honorable. They are not farsighted. And they have set in motion forces that no human effort can avert. Moreover they long ago formed a deathly co-op with history’s most […]

SERVERGATE: Hillary’s Emails are the Gift that Keeps on Giving

hlryemlsThe question of Hillary Clinton’s insecure emails looks more and more like a growing scandal.

Donald Trump continues to dominate and fascinate. Why?

The Rise of the Seventh Party System and Political Troika

Duly Noted - The Temptations of Backward Looking Security

Duly NotedIllusions, especially if supported by selective evidence, can blend into a brew that gives a “feel good” sensation to its paralyzed consumer.

The Circus Of Trump

After all the hoopla of the debate and screaming afterward, I decided it was time to take a look at Donald Trump and try to ascertain what it is that are good and bad about the candidate. There are those on both sides of the aisle that have a opinion that is unshakeable.

The Strange ‘Black Lives Matter’ Movement

Privilege and Preference

Media and Democrats have pushed the idea that blacks suffer discrimination at the hands of whites, in particular white policemen who they say are all too happy to shoot a black man to death.

No One Serves Jail Time for Smoking Pot

Government Slowly Kills the Private Sector – And Blames the Victim for Its Sputtering Demise

gvtstmpngOne of the advantages Big Government advocates have in their efforts to end the private sector – is the size of the victim. A $17-trillion-a-year economy is so huge – it almost always takes a lot of time to dismantle.

The Magic Mirror: Seeing the Virtues of Infanticide from a Progressive Viewpoint

“My, but I DO look kind and charitable today!”

A Matter of Privilege

Over the past few months we have heard a great deal about “White Privilege”, a catch all of racial profiling that asks us to entertain the ideas that all the problems in this country is based on a illusory demagoguery of the white middle class.
