Post on Salon.com, 30 JAN 2018

It has been recorded that upon adjournment of the Continental Congress, Benjamin Franklin was asked what had been created.  Franklin responded, “A Republic, if you can keep her.”  It has become increasingly clear during this last year of Trump that our Republic is under siege.  The very tenets that have been the underpinnings of the […]

Post on AlterNet, 30 JAN 2018

The three branches of government were created by our Founders for the purpose of separating the powers. The Republican Party has abdicated its duty and responsibility to fulfill their requirements as the Legislative Branch by blurring the lines between the Legislative and Executive Branches; falling on their collective, tribal sword for Donald J. Trump, the […]

Joe Scarborough, MSNBC, 30 JAN 2018

Dear Joe Scarborough, It would be somewhat reassuring if Republicans in Congress read your piece in this last Sunday’s Washington Post (January 28th, 2018),  Sadly, I doubt if any will bother.  Congressional Republicans are so giddy with their newly found power their jubilation has transformed them into treacherous, hubris-filled beasts. The line between the Legislative […]

Our Republic is in its worst state perhaps in all her history. The Trump White House is aggressively trying to undermine the FBI and the Department of Justice. Trump believes he should CONTROL both, thereby eliminating the arms’ length and objective relationship necessary. It is obvious Trump and his congressional Republicans are taking pages out […]

Post on WaPo, 20 JAN 2018

Trump represents nearly everything decent, dignified and reasoned human despises. He is repulsive, repugnant; reprehensible. He is vulgar and vile, his recent s**t hole comment just one example. As a person, Trump is hollow, fallow and shallow. Those who follow and support him must be lacking something in their pathetic lives that allows them to […]

Lindsey Graham, naive Sycophant of Donald Trump

A post I read earlier this week refers to Graham as a “weasel”. Sounds about right. Graham is smarmy, and he even looks smarmy. His naivete is superseded by his arrogance (or, perhaps, vice versa). Trump has NO SCRUPLES. Trump has no morals, no ethics, no humanity, no compassion, no truth, no honesty and no […]

Response to Milbank article on WaPo re Homeland Security Sec’y Lies

If one pays even slightly close attention to what is being done to our country, our people, our environment and our children’s futures, one cannot help but become increasingly angered, outraged and enraged. That the Republican Party stands by their man while heinous and egregious acts are taking place is altogether sickening. Republicans by action […]

Email to David Von Drehle re Article on Haitians, 15 JAN 2018

Dear Mr. Von Drehle, good evening! Your commentary in yesterday’s “Sunday Washington Post” about Haiti is informative and educational.  Sadly, the one person who should read it will not:  Donald John Trump.  Based on what I have learned about Trump over these last many months, I suspect he would not be able to read it […]
