Shut Down This Circus

Thursday, October 22nd, 2020

Like a Carnival Barker, Donald Trump is a master of exaggeration and misrepresentation.  It is a great quality for someone trying to sell a lie.  It is a horrible quality for a public servant. In the closing days of the campaign Donald is selling a whooper.  We’ve “rounded the corner” on Covid 19.  We may […]

Reckless Endangerment

Thursday, October 8th, 2020

Reckless behavior is shameful. Since February 7 Donald Trump knew that Covid 19 was a deadly airborne disease.  He knew it was a killer.  He played it down, and it has now killed more than 210,000 Americans. For the last eight months Donald has relentlessly mocked America’s doctors, scientists and anyone concerned about Covid 19.  […]

Healthcare Peril

Thursday, October 1st, 2020

If we learned anything over the last 7 months, it is that Donald Trump would make a horrible healthcare provider.  Imagine asking him if you had cancer.  Donald would lie to keep you from panicking.  Contrary to the fact that quick treatment could save your life.  Covid 19 has killed more than 200,000 Americans. Who […]

Donald's Deadly Lies

Thursday, September 17th, 2020

Donald’s chaos is producing predictable results.  Every day he stirs the pot.  His chaos makes it difficult to save American lives and jobs.  On February 7, 2020, Donald privately confessed the truth to Bob Woodward.  His confession was recorded for the entire world to hear. “It goes through air Bob. You know, the touch, you […]

Donald's Deception

Thursday, September 3rd, 2020

Teresa Horn from Tahlequah Oklahoma died on August 28.  Four days early she tested positive for Covid 19.  Four days before that she was teaching class.  She had taught Special Education for 26 years.   The Center for Disease Control reported this week a total of 183,000 deaths.  Teresa Horn’s death will add to that number.  […]

Conservatives Wasted Our Summer

Thursday, July 23rd, 2020

Conservative conspiracy theories have wasted our summer. Our summer was supposed to be a time to regroup and refresh.  All of the other Western European countries used the summer to heal their communities.   Western Europeans followed the advice of scientists and doctors. They shut down large gatherings. They implemented large-scale Covid 19 testing. They mandated […]

Conservative Apocalypse

Thursday, July 16th, 2020

Apocalypse means “to lift the veil.”   In an Apocalypse you can see behind the curtain.  Covid 19 has been an Apocalypse for conservatives.  Their reactions have shown us who they are and what they value. In May, Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick said, “No one reached out to me and said, ‘As a senior citizen, […]

Masked Tyranny

Thursday, July 2nd, 2020

Governments protect and serve the people.  Laws protect us by keeping us from hurting each other.  Agencies serve us by performing essential tasks that are too expensive for anyone person to buy alone.  Over the course of the last hundred years government actions have improved our lives. With every new idea, however, there was a […]

Barometer

Thursday, June 25th, 2020

In June 1944 Dwight Eisenhower faced a monumental choice.  He had to decide whether or not to risk lives of thousands of troops on the beaches of Normandy. He turned to the science of meteorology before making his decision. Meteorology was still an adolescent science in 1944.  Necessity is the mother of invention, and the […]

Good Samaritan

Friday, May 29th, 2020

The gospels are a rich source of wisdom.  In simple parables, they offer role models for good behavior. They also highlight some bad behavior. Often these parables take an unexpected turn and contradict common sense. The Gospels turn our common beliefs on their heads. One of my favorite parables is the story of the Good […]
