An Evening of Mixed Emotions
Watching the primary returns this evening has been a bag of mixed emotions. Sad because Pete Buttigieg wasn’t a part of the excitement. Happy that Amy Klobuchar had suspended her candidacy. Frustrated that so many people voting today had unnecessary long waits due to the lack of enough voting machines or precincts for the number… Continue reading An Evening of Mixed Emotions
Whom to Vote for Now?
My heart is very heavy. Mayor Pete has suspended his presidential bid. I was sitting in a movie theater scrolling through Twitter and there it was, the announcement. A web search had to be done because I couldn’t believe it to be true. As I confirmed the news, it actually felt like I had lost… Continue reading Whom to Vote for Now?
“On Tyranny: Beware the One-Party State” (Snyder)
I am purposefully skipping Chapter 2 of On Tyranny for the moment as I have a little more research to do before posting about it. Chapter 3 is Beware the One-Party State. If you are paying attention and are woke, you will see we are quickly moving in this direction. Yes, we currently have two… Continue reading “On Tyranny: Beware the One-Party State” (Snyder)
Where Have All Our Leaders Gone? Repost
After the events of today with Devin Nunes and the apparent installation of a Trumpist loyalist as the Director of National Intelligence, meaning another part of our government is now compromised, I felt an old post is even more relevant today than it was just a few months ago. Where Have All Our Leaders Gone?
This is an Appropriate Response to Trumpism
Tami Burages (@tmurages) hit it out of the park with the following Twitter thread. This is what a response to Trumpism and AG Barr should have looked like in a truly functioning Democratic Republic and a Fourth Pillar seeking the truth to protect the Constitution. This is what we should demand and expect from our… Continue reading This is an Appropriate Response to Trumpism
All Heil King Trump I
Doesn’t roll off the tongue does it? Regardless, get used to it. With the Senate vote of January 31, 2020, we now live in a monarchy at best, a dictator at worst. If a monarchy, it won’t be the type we associate with Queen Elizabeth II, a constitutional stickler, but more of an Ivan the… Continue reading All Heil King Trump I
Question: Why is Biden Still Ahead in the National Polls?
Source: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/15/opinion/joe-biden.html, Mike Blake/Reuters Joe Biden should be hanging his head in shame. Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden recently stated he will not comply with a Senate subpoena around the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Then, he double-downed on his statement. This is a man who is running for the Presidency of the United States.… Continue reading Question: Why is Biden Still Ahead in the National Polls?
11 Books Read by Democrat Presidential Candidates
When I came across a list of books by the, then 24, Democratic presidential candidates, I decided I was going to read them. Luckily, the major candidates have whittled down, so I’ve read 11 of the books available (not all have books). Interestingly, no bookstore had them all. One would think they would have a… Continue reading 11 Books Read by Democrat Presidential Candidates
San Francisco Walkabout-ish
Today was a pretty good day to be in San Francisco. The fog was out at the ocean, but the breeze wasn’t too bad. The pelicans (one of my favorite birds) were flying about. The temperature in the Castro was just right for me. The vibe that is San Francisco was out in full force.… Continue reading San Francisco Walkabout-ish
