Presidential Debate 2016

Election 2016

Although Secretary Clinton was the clear winner of the first presidential debate, there were a few things I wish she would have jumped on that she seemed to have missed.
Top of the list is Trump's maintaining that he will bring jobs back to America. What jobs is he talking about? He blatantly mentioned his investments and buildings in Europe during the debate. How did his foreign projects contribute to making America great?


Bafoon: Mirror on Trump

Dorian Gray

Bill Mahr compares Donald Trump to an orangutan, but he may have the wrong species in mind. The other day, someone on Twitter mistakenly called Trump a "bafoon". It was hard to tell whether they meant buffoon or baboon, but either fits. In fact, bafoon is a word that exactly describes Donald Trump.



President of Us All

Man in trashbasket

At the DNC Clinton said she will be President of us all. Maybe someone needs to remind her of that.
The Washington Post reported that at a recent fundraiser, Hillary Clinton said, "You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the 'basket of deplorables'. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it."



Toxic Trump/Toxic Talk

We are a strong people who have never been afraid of progress. We have no reason to fear others whether they look different than we do or believe differently than we do because we understand that it is our very differences that make us strong.

We certainly have no reason to fear our own government because our forefathers were brilliant enough to establish a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. We are the government.

I'm With Her: Give HRC a Break!

It seems that Hillary Clinton just can't get a break and anyone who tries to give her one is cannon fodder. The latest media flap is over some answers Ruth Bader Ginsberg gave to some interview questions. Justice Ginsberg came out in public support of Clinton. Apparently the beltway believes that Ginsberg is not entitled to voice her opinions.

Grass Roots Gun Sense

too much going on in this world for us to hibernate

As the House Democrats held the floor of the House of Representatives during the sit-in for common sense gun legislation, I remembered the old slogan, "Power to the people." Until the sit-in, it seemed Americans were powerless to do anything about gun violence in this country. The sit-in gave us hope.



Gun Sense: We Need It

We need to send the right guy

The second amendment doesn't need appealing. We are hunter gatherers that need to hunt up and gather some gun sense.The second amendment needs to be revised and put into specific terms.

Deposing America

crowd of multi-ethnic people

We have always been a country that adapts to the needs of a diverse population. We find our strength in embracing the best traditions from every culture. This one, strong, uniquely American tradition makes us one people, “We the People.” If we are proud to become a country of “white only” then we truly have lost our way.

Transgender Toilets: Pumping Out the Septic

This latest round of who can and cannot use the bathroom is the most absurd notion that state governments have raised to date. Aside from wasting taxpayer dollars on unnecessary legislation, these laws are a danger to public safety.



Trump Trash

It's striking how similar what comes out of the back of a garbage truck is to what comes out of Donald Trump's mouth .
