The GOP Agenda is Hateful, But the Rose Garden is Beautiful

Today is the Summer Solstice.

It’s a time to enjoy the longest day of the year and smell the roses.

It’s a day when one is meant to be happy.

Happy Summer Solstice!

Well…not so happy.

The GOP keeps getting its way with elections and its politicians keep breaking their oaths to uphold […]

Disgracing the Nation

We had a nice vacation with Trump – the #Pumpkingropenfuhrer – out of the country.

Now he’s back, damn it.

We have a vacuous celebrity of a Thief-in-Chief who leaves you-name-it to his crooked son-in-law to study up on, handle, and otherwise deal with anything and everything that comes up.

Trump is a guy with […]

Whiny, Fascist Tattle-Tale Politician Assails a Citizen’s 1st Amendment Right

The letter that appears in this blog post, along with its post-script – an illegal post-script – ought to be filed under U.S. News, NOT Politics, due to its blatant breach of the oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution. It was sent by U.S. Representative Rodney Frelinghuysen, R-NJ, pleading to Lakeland Bank for donations. In […]

The GOP Refuses to Hear the People

Last night, I saw a video online that expresses a symptom of the decline of democracy.

It is disturbing on a level that I think most people will miss at first, because they will get caught up in the emotion of the individuals concerned, so I’m going to describe it, because this other, deeper, underlying […]

Populism is the Enemy – NOT Population Studies

Well, at last, after weeks on end of watching populism rear its hideous hydra of a head, a voice from the population scientists has been heard.

Bill Nye – the Science Guy – took on the question of reproduction in developed nations.

He said that, considering the fact that our resource use is far tougher […]

Gerrymandering is Legal. It Has Ratf**ked Our Democracy. That Must Be Changed.

Redistricting. Gerrymandering. Ratf**king.

All of these words deal with the same topic, but increase the intensity of the action.

And they decrease the level of ethical behavior expected.

None is to be expected of the last, and not enough of the second one.

All this and more is discussed in David Daley’s book, released in […]

For Those Who Wonder Why the GOP Politicians Are Doing This…

…it is because the GOP politicians just don’t care about ethics nor their oaths to serve their constituents. They are so embittered that liberals got to make the reforms that we wanted and so many of them and they have given up and decided to cheat, because that’s the only way that they will be […]

Letters Sent to the Oath-Breakers

It is not possible to send it via the website for http://www.house.gov/ because one must live in the district of a particular politician, or s/he will block your attempt to e-mail them. Not to be deterred, I wrote on their Facebook pages. This is the letter I have written to the politicians who want to […]

Watching Our Democracy Crash as Oath-Breakers Ignore Us

Tracking the news since January 20th of this year is, as I expected it to be, like watching an ongoing motor vehicle crash.

Or should I characterize it as a train or a plane crash?

No…maybe likening it to the crash of both the International Space Station and the Hubble Telescope would do.

It’s something […]

Quit Now, #Pumpkingropenfuehrer – You Are Unfit in Every Way

The #Pumpkingropenfuehrer is unfit in every way to hold the office of President of the United States.

Unfit, and as a result, we are living in the Untied States of America.

Just watch this damning segment:

Trump questions terror suspect’s rights

“Sad” that a suspect will get due process of law under the U.S. […]
