Trump EPA Chief Has Unusual Waiver to Fly in First Class

Trump EPA Chief Has Unusual Waiver to Fly in First Class:  The Environmental Protection Agency is refusing to release the written waiver that allows Administrator Scott Pruitt to fly regularly in first or business class for security reasons - a practice that sets him apart both from his predecessors and other current Cabinet members.  I get it - I mean, if you’re the head of an agency promoting a clean environment, the last thing you wanna do is be…

A Sunset Soliloquy

As I was collecting the trash tonight I noticed some marks in the grass in the backyard so I went out to investigate, keeping in mind last year's vole situation. It has been a lot this weekend, I'm feeling a bit at the end of my tether with trying to do up the resume' and beginning to straighten up my shelves, so I took a bit of grounding advice and sat on my old garden bench for a few minutes. This is what I saw.…

Flu and some good things after that

About 12 days ago, I started feeling like I was coming down with something, and I did. What began as me feeling uncharacteristically cranky, out-of-sorts and inordinately tired blew up into the worst chest cold I can remember. I think now that it might have been the flu (again) even though I had it last year and got a flu shot this past October. 

From what I've been reading on it, this season's flu shot is only about 25% effective, but can mitigate the worst of it.

Still, it's…

at what cost?

not wanting to distract from the conversations already in progress ... i offer my thoughts here.

the reality is ...



making law(s) banning sales of military style weaponry will not put an end to this viscous cycle of slaughter.

nor will it really matter.



it has been estimated there are more than 1.5M - 2.5M AR15s on the streets of America today.

there are also many other firearms/accessories of military grade…

Enough Is Enough: Emma Gonzales, Al Hoffman Jr., and the tipping point on gun control

What Newtown and the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords didn’t accomplish, Parkland might. Why do I say this?

Because of two people. The first is a Parkland student by the name of Emma Gonzales who has delivered an eleven minute speech that is nothing short of magnificent. The speech has been posted by Ron and Foolish Monkey. You can go to either of their blogs to see it:…

we MUST stay focused!

Emma Gonzalez's speech may be the most powerful speech I've heard since the Obama speech at the '04 Dem convention.  And apparently the president agrees.  He's spent the morning tweeting, tweet after tweet, meandering and…

Guest Link concerning antisemitism and the Florida school shootings

I knew pretty soon after the shooting that five of the dead were Jewish, including four kids who attended the Reform Jewish movement’s Camp Coleman. My North Carolina assistant rabbi worked at that camp some summers because it was the Reform movement’s regional camp. I haven’t spoken to him since, but there’s a strong possibility he knew these kids.

This morning an article was forwarded to me stating that that is unlikely to have been coincidental. It turns out that Nikolas Cruz, the…

Laura Ingraham Thinks Athletes Should Shut Up and Dribble:  Fox News host Laura Ingraham is being accused of racism after she replied to NBA star LeBron James’ statement that “Donald Trump doesn’t “give a f**k about the people” by saying athletes like him should stay out of politics and just “shut up and dribble.”  Now let’s see here, we have a loud-mouthed reality star, a bully, a pathological liar, a serial philanderer and misogynist and - possibly…

L’État, c’est Trump!: Guest Post, NYT OP-ED

L’État, c’est Trump!

By Roger Cohen

NYT May 19, 2017



Louis XIV of France summed up his view of power with the phrase “L’État, c’est moi,” or “I am the State.” Donald Trump became president four months ago with roughly the same idea. In the Trump universe, he had been judge, jury and executioner. He saw no reason why that would change.



Trump had no knowledge of, or interest in, the checks and balances enshrined in the…
