The Democratic Electoral College

Trump scoffed at the assessment of U.S. intelligence officials that Russia is back at work, attempting to influence our election. He called it a “misinformation campaign” by Democrats.

This Ain’t That

Considering that Michael Bloomberg has not yet competed in a caucus or primary, it might be premature to start assigning running mates. But this ain't that.

Iran; If Only We Had A Treaty…

Obamacare, Merrick Garland, Kavanaugh, Russia, Ukraine??? Gotta love the irony that old white Republicans vote to protect Iran, but our constitution? People of color, LGBT, our Muslim & undocumented Americans working to make America Great? Not so much. The Senate voted 55-45 on the resolution, that requires Trump to pull ... Read More

Lies, Damn Lies and Trump

Trump's lies. Not to belittle the squat monkey, but to show his followers. (And a little belittling.) "Trump says "best economy ever," but his annual GDP, (how we judge) has never been above 3%. But Hillary's husband? 1997, 98, 99, GDP grew 4.5& 4.5% & 4.7% Remember, if you can't ... Read More
