• My last thought admonishing Senators to vote according to their oath of office did not take into account that they are politicians. And politicians are always more concerned with the next election than what is […]

  • When it’s decision time, I am often reminded of Robert Frost’s poem:

    ‘The road not taken’, and now it seems that the Republican senators have to decide which ‘road’ to take:

    “…Two roads diverged in a w […]

    • It was scary what happened at the Capitol. I do believe these people should be punished to help preventing this from becoming something more. What is really disappointing is that Trump basically encouraged this.

  • I started commenting on the possibility of the latest actions of Trump about a year ago in hopes people would get it and just put up with him. Boy, was I wrong!

    Here is a montage depicting the start of when it […]

    • Trump just won’t accept the fact that he lost the election. His whole life he has always gotten everything he wanted. But now he doesn’t get what he wants and he goes crazy about it. I was a Trump fan, but I still do believe that Joe Biden won this election.

      • It’s good to see people actually say this. I know many republicans who support the party and don’t agree with Trump or his actions. You have an open mind ….and that’s a good thing.

  • After all he is using a much smaller desk nowadays!

  • Why are so many Americans choosing death over deprivation?

  • America, a good way to remember and thank Veterans would to be an American and fight to keep our democratic republic in place and not lety us slip down into a despotic banana republic!

    • What has to be remember also,, is that most of the demogogues, are really not at war with the elite as they try to convince the rest of us that they are. Like trump, they usually come from the ranks of the rich and elite…or at least privileged, and use our anger against us to divide us against each other. That’s what trump did, for sure.

  • My apologies up front if this offends, but I feel I must do my utmost to try to ensure voters they are voting smart.

    Let me say up front that I am an American, not for the left or right, more for the middle.  […]

    • I am a Democrat, who is solidly Democratic. I have always been and always will be. However, I have to admit that I have not been that the nation has never been as adversely affected by Republicans before. trump is simply a different animal, and I have thought for the longest that he is all about an authoritarian, dictator style form of government.

      Even Nixon did a few good things, but trump has done little or nothing fo rmost of us, including many that voted for him.

  • Since Trump announced his illness, I have been racking my brain trying to find something good to say about him. I just know there is something positive about him , but it just won’t come to the fore.

    I’m […]

    • As if we expected ANYTHING different?
      Come on Mr. Owl…….yer an Owl for goodness sakes.

      • I read a conversation about people being glad about Trump getting Covid. Trump has many good qualities and I cannot even say i support him. I am a private thinker when it comes to politics . Democrats and Republicans are both human beings. It is sad when anyone suffers any illness. One thing good about him, is he stood in a very large crowd of judgmental news media crowds for years now. I think he tried his best even though I disagree with some of what he stands for. One good thing we can say about anyone is….they are human , just like us.

    • I strongly believe that this is a pivotal point in the life of our nation. If we don’t turn things around in this election, we are going to no longer be a democratic republican and will become a full-fledged autocratic dictatorship. The beginning stages have already come about, and the various departments are mostly, but not all together as of yet, taken over by the person that sees himself as “leader for life”.

      This is absolutely the most important election we have been had as a nation.

    • YES….I completely agree. I am all about police reform but this is going a bit too far.
      Are they looking for a volunteer force like Volunteer Fire Departments like we have in the back countries? That would be taking a few steps backwards.
      It irks me when people paint everyone with a broad stroke. Not all police officers are bad apples. MOST are not.

    • I would not want to live in America if there were not any police. Bad people would have room to torture the rest of us with their selfish crimes. I do think they need to have more training to prevent deaths in the line of duty. The Black Lives Matter movement has created more racism in the whole history of America. I do not see race, people all bleed red blood.

    • sorry….above, I realized that I have some wrong words….in my haste, that is often something I am prone to. However, I tried to update it but couldn’t and thought I would delete and re-enter, but it only deleted from the feed not from here…. 🙂

      Obviously there are things I still need to learn how to do, and one of them is update a comment.

    • Hi Olen, YES….I kept reading what twitter did and read what Trump said and the dots did not connect. It almost reminded me of the Lady in Central Park……the bird watcher politely asked her to leash her dog and she called 911 and cried bloody murder. (Ok…I exaggerated that a bit) But from what I kept reading there isn’t much Trump could do and just like an article I read….it all turned out to be theatrics. And he knows his base always falls for his theatrics.

      I don’t facebook because of Zuckerberg……and have enjoyed Twitter. And I think I will enjoy Twitter even more so now 😉
