The face of the Democratic Party is changing

If someone told you 5 years ago that Nancy Pelosi, in just a few years, would be the moderate Democrat voice in the house would you have believed it? I know I would have laughed out loud. It’s incredible how quickly the left has radicalized.   I’m middle to right on most issues, more libertarian on some issues, and more liberal on some issues. I don’t often agree with Pelosi. I think it’s naive to believe the freshman Dems are not indicative of the Democratic Party. You may not want them to be and frankly neither do I despite the fact that they’re going to help Republicans with the 2020 elections.   I don’t want this radical element anywhere near political power but they are and unfortunately they are the future of the Democratic Party. The face of the party is changing. You see all the 2020 D…

Modern Day Hypocrites

Donald Trump has recently suggested that he may send the many illegal immigrants in overcrowded ICE facilities to Sanctuary Cities, specifically those in California that claimed themselves to be so.  While this is in part is a political ploy, and a very good one, for his part this realistically…

Thank Goodness for ObamaCare

"Thank goodness for ObamaCare." Those are words I never thought I would utter. Actually, I haven't uttered those words, lest friends and family think that I have gone insane. I keep those words to myself. It is true; I don't know what I would do without ObamaCare.   I've been a harsh critic of …

Electoral College,  VS Popular Vote, OR ?

The present system of winner-take-all doesn't fulfill the founders original purpose of protecting minority voters' interests, nor, protect voters from special interests. The present system creates a handicap for less populous rural states. Favors state-based majorities over national majorities. Gerr…

Paying Taxes Isn't Patriotic

Today in America income-tax returns are due, which means it’s time for those who worship at the altar of government to trot out the 1904 aphorism by Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.: “Taxes are the price we pay for civilized society.” You want roads to drive on? Clean water to drink?…

Extinction’s Extinct! (Or is it?)

Superman Comes Out Gay

It was inevitable.

Beware the Morality of the Democrats

Most normal people have been raised, or choose of their own accord, to avoid behaving unethically or immorally in relation to fundamental objective principles of right and wrong.  At least, that used to be largely so.    They do not depend on politicians or activists to guide them, bu…

My Teenage Jobs

In my entire adult life, I have never been fired from a job.
