What’s that sound?

Friday, December 13th, 2019

“If the facts are against you, argue the law. If the law is against you, argue the facts. If the law and the facts are against you, pound the table and yell like hell”

Donald Ignored His Right to Remain Silent

Monday, November 25th, 2019

Donald’s own words reveal he used public funds for private gain. Corruption = Biden Sept. 22 “We had a great conversation. The conversation I had was largely congratulatory. It was largely corruption — all of the corruption taking place. It was largely the fact that we don’t want our people, like Vice President Biden and […]

Public, not private, Office

Wednesday, November 13th, 2019

Res publica: A Public, not a private, thing. “INSKEEP: At the start, we asked if the evidence shows an abuse of power. So here is another way to phrase the decision facing lawmakers – do they think the president asked for investigations in the national interest or his own?” Take 11 minutes to listen, or […]

We’re All Alice

Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

“The Hatter’s remark seemed to her to have no sort of meaning in it, and yet it was certainly English.”  Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1911, p.101) Words ought to have meaning.  For the vast majority of us they do.  Unfortunately, we have walked through the looking glass and confront a Mad Hatter.   We’re all Alice […]

“To the Republic”

Tuesday, October 1st, 2019

Political allegiance cuts to the heart of patriotism.  In the Middle Ages, warriors owed their personal allegiance to their Lord.  For warriors, allegiance was earned on the battle field.  For everyone else, the Lord demanded allegiance at the point of a sword.  Monarchs dressed up this crude reality with claims to Divine Right.  In England, […]

Donald Trump’s High Crimes

Wednesday, September 25th, 2019

I am old enough to remember that politics stops at the waters edge. Now, conservatives are defending foreign participation in American Democracy. “The actions of the Trump presidency revealed dishonorable facts of betrayal of his oath of office and betrayal of our national security and betrayal of the integrity of our elections,” the speaker of […]

The Preventive War Lie

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

Article One, Section Eight of the Constitution says “Congress shall have power to … declare War”. If Donald goes to war, he will be in violation of the US Constitution. His advisors are trying to spin their illegal activity as a “preventive war.” Starting a war has never prevented one. We haven’t finished paying for […]

A Tale of Two Amendments

Thursday, January 11th, 2018

How often have you heard people say, “We respect our teachers”?  When the Teacher of the Year from Vermillion Parish Louisiana spoke her mind, however, we saw with our own eyes how meaningless this statement has become.  On January 8th Deyshia Hargrave stood up to exercise her First Amendment rights during a School Board Meeting.  […]

My Presidents vs Not My Presidents

Friday, August 18th, 2017

Since people have a hard time understanding honor, let me offer this. Not all men are perfect. We know this. The question is simple: “Did they move America forward, or did they try to take it back?” I honor the men and women who made us a “more perfect union,” not the men and women […]

CSA Constitution

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

The CSA Constitution left most of the USA Constitution intact, including the supremacy clause. What did it change? 1) It invoked the favor of Almighty God (I guess He decided He preferred the USA). 2) It eliminated all reference to the “common” good or “general welfare.” 3) It created rights for slave owners. _____ Congress […]
