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 […]

Let’s talk voting.  Vote by mail is safe and effective.  Don’t be afraid to exercise you lawful right by mail or in person.  Voting is important to our democracy.   Return you vote by mail as soon as possible.  Don’t forget to include the appropriate postage.  The United States Postal Service is one of the […]

Original Intent…to Discriminate

Tuesday, October 13th, 2020

The “original intent” of the 14th Amendment never included “all persons” even though the text say “all persons.” Courts have slowly expanded “all” to mean “all.” Judge Barrett will follow the “original intent”, not evolved precedent, or what the English called common law.

There are free markets which allow individuals to buy and sell without government interference. […]

Socialist Ghosts

Saturday, October 10th, 2020

Clever politicians have turned socialism into a frightening ghost.  It has replaced terrorism as the catchall phrase.   Should we get our pitch forks and kill this really scary monster?  Maybe, but be careful what you kill.  You might just kill a friend. Socialism simply means public ownership of property.  No more.  No less.  Governments turned […]

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 […]
