First Takes – Mueller Report – Russia’s Man In The White House

April 18, 2019

Despite what you hear from others, the Mueller Report does not in any way excuse the behavior of the President, members of his Administration, members of his inner circle, or members of his family.   Believe that and you will be forced to admit that evidence and facts are not valued or considered as you make […]

WHERE DID THEY GO? WHY DID THEY NOT TURN OUT?

Part One – A History of Suppression Black voters turned out in large numbers to vote during both of the elections where Barack Obama was running for President.  Studies have shown that black voters did not turn out in the same numbers during the 2016 Presidential election of November 8, 2016.  In fact, black voter […]

“Thoughts And Prayers” Do Nothing When Faced With An AR-15

February 15, 2018

October 12, 2016

After a while, one just has to wonder if Donald Trump really believes what he says. Is every word out of his mouth designed to stimulate a certain portion of the electorate that he believes will propel him to become the leader of the free world?  Sometimes I have a hard time believing he is […]

October 7, 2016

  This is the 3rd in a series of blogs listing reasons why I will not vote for Donald Trump.  This one probably isn’t something that most think about.  It involves Trumps latching on to the tired old fiscal theory that has come to be known as “Trickle Down Economics”.  I will keep this one […]
