Make America Great Again - The Master Helmsman

I'm not an expert in anything. I know a little bit about everything, sometimes just enough to be dangerous. I make mistakes. Sometimes share the wrong story or say the wrong thing, BUT, when I was in the Navy, I was the MASTER HELMSMAN. I was the best that there was. There is nothing I did better in my whole life than be the Master Helmsman. I was good. I don't know how I did it, but with no experience at all, when given a course, I could throw that helm at just the right speed, stop it at just the right time, spin it the other way, stop it, and just slowly move it over to just the right spot, and that ship would land right on its course. I was one of the best. You know why, because I'm a little Psychic. That's how I can watch the news and know that they are lying to us. Sometimes I get fooled, because I listen to someone else and ignore …

I’ve had it with the Democratic Party

I worked hard for Sanders and most politicians decided that their ability to fundraise from mega donors with Clinton was more important to them than respecting the best interests of the voters. We already have one big business favoring, mega donor loving, party that does not give a crap about the li…

I GOT A TINGLE DOWN MY LEG

I got a tingle down my leg, and then I realized it was a loss of bladder control. When you get old, nothing works as good as it used to. Especially after 6 beers. I thought at first it was the inaugural parade and Donald Trump that was inspiring me. But then I realized that my optimism was being pi…

A Wounded Country

One of my favorite lines from the second inaugural address of Abraham Lincoln (March 4, 1865) is:   "...to bind up the nation's wounds..."   Watching the inauguration of Donald Trump today that line came back to me; how many wounds we all need to work to bind. It is this bin…

Donald Trump versus the CIA

It's obvious that the corrupt neocon CIA is engaged in domestic activity (which is strictly prohibited by law) to interfere with the United States presidential election. Need I remind all that the CIA are responsible for Operation Mockingbird, Operation Condor and Project Phoenix. I highly recommend…

This is inauguration month. You probably didn’t realize this, unless you’re one of the few people who followed the 2016 Presidential election. I mean, who paid attention to that?   It was the single nastiest election since I ran for high school student council in 1979, and c…

Dems...opponents of democracy.

Hoping For A Real Political Miracle

I liked Barrack Obama as a person when he was campaigning for president (although I liked him less as time went on).

Strange Times

My father served in World War 2.  He saw intense combat in the Asian Theater and never talk about it much.  He did say you never made friends because it made the killing of your fellow soldiers easier to take.  How strange it must have been to have all of these young men plucked from …
