    Why I Cannot Vote For Trump (or remain a Republican)

    I cannot vote for Donald Trump. I cannot abandon #NeverTrump. It’s not because Trump is a pathological liar. It’s not because he is so arrogant he makes Barrack Obama seem humble. It’s not because he stole millions of dollars from students of his bogus university. It’s not because he tried to use his political influence to evict an elderly woman from her home against her | Read More »

    It’s Not Pro-Choice, It Is Pro-Death

    Pro-abortion folk refer to their position as pro-choice. It’s as if they really want a woman to have a choice. But that is a misnomer. The truth is, they don’t want a woman to change her choice after first choosing to murder her baby. So how do we know this? We know this because any time a state tries to enact a waiting period before | Read More »

    Tennessee Bible law won’t stand up in court

    The Tennessee state senate has passed a bill making The Bible the official book of Tennessee, and sent it to Governor Bill Haslam for his signature. I don’t know if he’ll sign the bill into law or not, but I’m thinking he will not. I could be wrong. As you might have guessed, this bill has not been without some controversy. I was surprised it | Read More »

    Have We Raised A Bunch Of Wussies?

    College is supposed to be a period of enlightenment for young people. To discover new ideas and explore different cultures. But unless you want to become an engineer, a lawyer, a doctor or something of that sort, you probably don’t need to go to college. But there you, at the university. What an opportunity! I grew up in a couple of small towns. I was | Read More »

    Like his good friend Hillary, Trump doesn’t believe rules apply to him

    Bill and Hillary Clinton have managed over the years to make sure that rules for the common folk do not apply to them. They slip and slime their way out of no end of trouble, although she may have met her match with the current scandals. Donald Trump is the same way. He believes he gets his own set of rules, and so the low-information | Read More »

    That’s It. I Will NOT Voter for Lying Trump

    I am no supporter of Donald Trump. There are a lot of reasons for that. His many lies. His childish immaturity. His schoolyard bullying. His arrogance and massive narcissism. His stealing from thousands of Trump University students. His dishonest business practices. His many business failures that hurt thousands of people, and I’m just getting started. So I’ve been struggling with the question – will I support | Read More »

    We are at war with Islamic Terrorists. Islamophobia isn’t helping…

    There is no question we are at war with Islamic terrorists. If you do not believe that, you are completely disconnected from reality. Whether or not the terrorists are interpreting their (false) religion correctly is up for debate. But one thing seems fairly clear: not all Muslims have an extreme view of Islam. But it is also clear there are radicalized Muslims among us. Just | Read More »

    GOP Senators Taking A Calculated Risk With Supreme Cour

    As you no doubt know, President Barrack Obama has nominated Merrick Garland to fill the Supreme Court position that was vacated with the death of Antonin Scalia. And as you probably know, key Republican Senators have vowed not to consider any Supreme Court nominanee until after the new President is sworn in. Senate leader Mitch McConnell has been quite firm he will not have a | Read More »

    Trump’s insane plan to block Muslims

    I have historically considered Islam to be a (false) religion. I believed by and large that American Muslims were peaceful folk who just wanted to practice their religion as the First Amendment allows. But I am currently re-assessing that position. I am now trying to figure out if Islam is a religion, a political movement, or both. I even got a Koran to try to | Read More »

    Time for Kasich to check his ego and take one for the team

    When Hillary Clinton is sworn in as President of the United States next January, we will have John Kasich to thank. Selfish, arrogant, delusional John Kasich. There is not a chance in hell Kasich will be elected President. There is not a chance in hell he will win the Republican nomination. Even if it’s a contested convention. Kasich got what he wanted. He won Ohio. | Read More »
