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…Continue
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?…

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. …
O that the three best words had been learned as such!

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…Continue
It's been a while since I posted. Haven't had much to say. Then I surfed into this article on Salon.com: Why Trump Lies It’s not just to hide the truth. It’s to alter reality,…Continue

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…Continue
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”…Continue

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…Continue
