50 Years Ago Today - One Post Abandoned for Another

For the past week or so I've been collecting links to stories about the situation in Portland, Oregon with the idea of posting about how the grotesque hate crimes of a deranged maniac, whose name I will not mention resulted in the murders of Rick Best, 53, and 23-year-old Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche.  Anna Herrington posted…

Now That Trump’s Trashed The Paris Climate Accord: Isn’t This Enough To Discuss Changing The Presidential Election System?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. When will our reasonable leaders, progressive and moderate ― even clearheaded conservatives ― come to grips with the reality that we have an unelected, dysfunctional president, selected by an archaic, outmoded Electoral College that must be abolished or circumvented?…

Yet Another Memorial Day - a Repost.

Memorial Day is supposed to be something more than the Indianapolis 500, backyard barbecues and Big Box store sales.  Try to ignore hubris of the Beast "45" and take a moment to reflect on those, living and dead, who truly sacrificed to make America great. …

What's Wrong With Trump

I wrote this in early March but I think it is still relevant.

Throughout the campaign the issue of whether Donald Trump was fit to be President was continually discussed and debated. The most common term used was “temperament,” i.e., the argument was whether or not Mr. Trump had the proper temperament to be President. This is separate from the issue of what his policies would be and…

conspiracy theory: trump money laundering russian mobster embezzlement via real estate

hi all. used to write about conspiracy theory a lot on my old salon site & got a lot of hits on that. havent been quite as active on that subj here but have written a bit. lately conspiracy theory has become semi mainstream which makes it quite a bizarre situation. the minority view is now widespread.[e]

theres a lot of factors behind this, but Trump himself seems to be one of the biggest conspiracy theorists. (by now some of the early findings/ jury is in on the…

The Growing Clamor for a Special Prosecutor of the Trump-Russia Case

From the beginning of the investigation by committees in the House and Senate into possible connections between the Trump Campaign and Russian hacking of Hillary Clinton’s email and the DNC headquarters, there have been calls for a special prosecutor to be named to de-politicize the investigation.  Legislators, especially Republicans, have argued against naming one.  Mitch McConnell, Senate majority leader, has wanted to sweep the investigation to the side so that “more pressing”…

Where Is The Silver Lining

It’s been a sort of miserable day.  After an overcast morning the rain started about noon, and it is pouring now.  L showed me a place where there is a water problem with water coming down the outside wall onto the screen porch.  It is at a place where the gutter does a 90 degree bend and a roof valley empties.  Ugh.

Added to that is the fact that the House voted today to pass the abomination that has been substituted for the AHA (Obamacare).  No one doubts, except the “Freedom…
