Pragmatism vs Idealism at the DNC

Just read this story and it has me turning my head inside out as I consider what should be "right" as opposed to what might "work" for the Democratic National Committee in 2017 and the Midterm Elections in 2018: Ellison holds edge in DNC race survey.  In my heart I hold nothing but respect for Rep. Keith Ellison (Minn.) who in a new survey of DNC members holds an edge over former Labor…

Physics Teacher Receives Death Threats if Students Don’t Pass

Physics Teacher Receives Death Threats if Students Don’t Pass:  A 50-year-old high school teacher in Buenos Aires said she’s received death threats, including a letter with a 9 mm bullet in it, warning her she would be shot if she didn’t give the entire class a passing grade in physics.  While I don’t condone gun violence, in these students defense, they were just studying the “Big Bang.”  On the other hand, I don’t think even death threats would have helped…

Trying To Kick That Depressed Feeling

I spent this past weekend in New York City. It seems when I’ve reached a certain point in dealing with things, when I just can’t clear my head, I book a flight to NYC. It’s a bit like the ultimate comfort food. Now, I’m sure New York has its share or problems—the place scared me to no end the first couple of times I visited—but I’ve been pretty sheltered by them. And when I need her, she welcomes me with open arms.

There’s no point in lying. I, like so many others, have been deeply…

No Obama Did Not Leave a Mess

Donald Trump has begun to blame Obama for his poor start. He is using distraction by complaining that Obama left a mess.

We could ignore the issue if this was just a Trump tweet, but the party faithful have started chiming in too. Thus John Barrasso went on Greta Van Susteren (MSNBC) the other day to deliver these talking points.

How do the rest of us…

Despite Strong Criticism Of Trump By GOP Senators, They Mostly Fall In Line

When Ronald Reagan was elected president I literally became ill. It was unexpected as was his victory tally, but as difficult as it was to digest I accepted he was chosen by the preponderance of the American people.

Not so with Donald Trump, who under a flawed and archaic system achieved high office, but it wasn’t because more Americans were drawn to his bigoted, outrageous utterances.…
