Seeds of Sedition

Thursday, July 29th, 2021

The January 6 attack on American Democracy grew from seeds planted 40 years earlier.  In the 1980s conservative activists created incendiary rhetoric to attack our government.  Since the New Deal, conservatives had lost to a wave of progressive legislation.  The Federal Government improved the lives of seniors with Social Security and Medicare.  It improved the […]

Uncle Sam Needs You

Thursday, July 8th, 2021

The World watched on January 6, 2021, as criminals swarmed the United States Capital.  The thugs wanted to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.   Most of us looked on in horror. Congress had gathered in a solemn, constitutional ceremony to count the Electoral College votes.  Each state had certified the results.  Courts from every corner […]

Broken Clock

Thursday, May 6th, 2021

Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) is the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney.  She is also the House Republican Conference Chair, third highest-ranking House Republican in the House of Representatives.  Representative Cheney wants her fellow Republicans to stop lying about the 2020 Presidential election. On Monday, May 3, 2021, she wrote “The 2020 presidential election […]

I apologize

Thursday, January 28th, 2021

I’ve been involved in public politics for more than 20 years now. Criticism and disagreements are all part of the process. Often it is just name calling without any substance.  Every once in a while, I will get a comment that makes me stop and think a little bit more. The following letter did just that. The […]

Truth Creates Unity

Thursday, January 21st, 2021

We all know to take the keys away from a drunk driver.  Drinking impairs decision making and judgment. In government, lies produce the same results.  Over 400,000 of our neighbors have died because of Covid 19 lies and political denial.  Will our democracy be next? On Jan. 22, 2020 a reporter asked Donald Trump whether […]

Tell The Truth

Thursday, January 14th, 2021

Now is a moment for strength, not weakness. Strength requires facing the truth. As the Good Book says, “Thou shall not bear false witness.”  On Jan. 6, domestic terrorists broke into the United States Capitol to stop the confirmation of the Electoral College vote. What we saw was disgusting. Not since the Civil War has […]

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 […]
