Trump, the GOP, and The Fall

This is absolutely brilliantly written and worded; and expresses exactly my feelings on the current election and self-destruction of the Republican party… I confess I never know if I should cheer on that self-destruction, or lament the loss of a reasonable and rational counterpoint to the Democratic party, which does need a healthy check against […]

“Trumpster Fire”

“Trumpster fire” – John Gruber knocks it out of the park again with my favorite phrase of the week when he compares the Republican National Convention to a “Trumpster fire” – awesomely apt description. http://daringfireball.net/linked/2016/07/21/nba-north-carolina http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=trumpster%20fire

Remember to check with the board of elections to find out your ballot before you vote so you have time to research your choices, or lack thereof. […]

Where are the jobs bills?

They have not even tried and been vetoed or rejected in the Senate… they simply have not tried. Clearly Republicans, at least the ones in office now, […]
