The Plan

Let me put this as clearly as I know how: we’re a people seeking the fastest and most comfortable ride as we speed towards the cliff’s edge.

Not buying the greenwash…

Really, Republicans? Calling human survival on this planet “too extreme”, “too ambitious”? Really, Democrats? Refusing to vote for your own measure and then vilifying the Republicans for forcing the vote? Both sides have proven themselves the villains here.

Nice going, guys…

I’d like to congratulate Congress on its utter cowardice, in failing to overturn the State of Ego Emergency imposed by our Drama-Queen-in-Chief. Apparently partisanship has to take precedence over sense, responsibility and decency.

On the Mueller Report

The POTUS has only stayed out of prison these past forty years, by keeping multiple degrees of separation between himself and his actions. Anyone expecting a smoking gun out of the Mueller Report is being terribly naïve.

Isn’t this how we got Trump?

The recent mantra of “Vote Blue, No Matter Who” sounds like the desperate cry of a party that knows they have nothing real to offer. Wasn’t it the Republicans last time who were willing to put a sideshow freak in the Oval Office just to thwart Hillary?

Bern’d again?

I want to applaud Sen. Bernie Sanders’s decision to run for President in 2020, but I’m leery. In 2016 Bernie energized and rejuvenated the left wing of the Democrats, just so they could be fobbed off on “at least I’m not Trump” Hillary. Just as I said would happen. The result was… well, you see the result.
