Modern Conservatism: fiscally, morally and socially bankrupt

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

Share on Facebook One more time. If you consider yourself a conservative, fine. You need to know that Donald Trump is the embodiment of Modern Conservatism. He is vulgar. He is anti intellectual. He is a bully. He is fiscally, morally and socially bankrupt. You can see the same conservatism in action if you look […]

The Preventive War Lie

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

Share on Facebook 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 […]

Donald’s Deals

Friday, January 26th, 2018

Share on Facebook Growing up I’d love to spend summers at my maw maw’s house. One of the daily rituals was watching game shows including “Let’s Make a Deal.” We got a chuckle when someone picked a Zonk, one of the meaningless prizes. We are now into season 2 of Donald’s deals in Washington. Behind […]

The Conservative Deficit Creation Strategy

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Share on Facebook The conservative deficit creation strategy is clearer every day.  Not long ago we heard conservatives scream that deficits were bad.  Now conservatives control the United States House of Representatives, the Senate and Presidency, and they are eagerly creating $1.5 trillion dollars in deficit spending.  Why would they do that?

We the people must hold elites accountable. […]

Why not Ike?

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Share on Facebook Donald reached way back in history to find a strong President who would have kept the Union together. Why Jackson? Why not Ike? Eisenhower sent the 101st Airborne into Little Rock to enforce federal Civil Rights law. He proposed and passed the Interstate Highway System with bipartisan support. Ike supported Social Security […]

Donald’s Feel Good Bombs

Friday, April 7th, 2017

Share on Facebook Let’s not kid ourselves; Donald Trump dropped some feel good bombs. Killing people and destroying property makes him and his supporters feel good about themselves.

A Big Conservative Lie Died Today

Friday, March 24th, 2017

Share on Facebook Dearly beloved, We, the People of the United States of America, are gathered here today to put to rest 8 years of lies. President Obama and the Democrats in the Congress did their homework and passed a sound bill. Like all pieces of legislation, it was not perfect, but it was the […]

Conservatism’s Great Betrayal

Monday, March 20th, 2017

Share on Facebook Rural America depends on Federal funding to supplement their budgets. Why? Because urban areas are more prosperous in the modern economy. Liberals recognized this fact during the New Deal and built programs to help. Ronald Reagan’s Conservative Revolution started tearing them down. Donald Trump is trying to finish the job. He is […]
