CHECKING IN; 07/14/2109

There really is nothing that deserves comment right now. The same people are making the same political pronouncements instead of actually doing something. The Republicans are content to let the Democrats make all the headlines; the Democrats are desperately trying to elevate the old news Mueller Report into something that they can use against the President while engaging in an internal civil war; .and the Administration stumbles on leaderless. in many key agencies and departments. For the most part, the Nation’s response to the Democrats debates and daily “who’s in/who’s out” is a large Yawn. Trying to find any significance in the cattle call of Democrat presidential contenders in July of 2019 when the election is in November of 2020 is like predicting the final score of a T-Ball game between 6 year-olds after the first inning. Even the Iranians seem to have gone on vacation.

And Congress will be on vacation – excuse me, district work time – for the entire month of August!

As for this political junkie, I have suspended my wonkyness for the time being in favor of sitting in my den and watching the hummingbirds dive and swoop between the feeders on the deck and the flowers. Much more entertaining. I recommend it.

The fun starts later.

STAY TUNED

KUDOWS; 06/29/2109

In this blog, I have consistently and rightly castigated, blamed, demeaned and pilloried our elected members of Congress, and the leadership of each chamber, for their single-minded emphasis on their own re-election and the electoral strength of their chosen party over the needs and good of the nation as a whole. And, for the  most… Continue Reading

IRAN; 06/21/2019

Yesterday, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (“IRGC”), the Iranian military/para-military organization, shot down an unmanned unarmed United States surveillance drone, There is controversy over where the drone was when it was shot down; we say over international waters, they say over Iranian waters. Where the attack took place has some legalistic import, but otherwise it… Continue Reading

THE SPHINX SPEAKS; 05/29/2019

Today the now former Special Counsel gave a brief statement to the assembled press throng, and retreated into his Cave of Solitude. He expressed his fervent desire that the statement today be his one and only public appearance regarding his work as Special Counsel and the report. Good luck with that. As is my practice,… Continue Reading

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS; 05/18,2019

In the aftermath of World War II, the United States stood as the bastion of freedom, human rights and democracy. The other super power, the Soviet Union, represented the polar opposites – repression, dictatorship and servitude. The enlightened leadership of our Nation at that time realized that America, both for its own best interests and… Continue Reading

CURRENT RUMBLINGS; 05/13/2)19

Ruminations on current rumblings in the news, real or fake: MUELLER REPORT:  True to form, the warring factions – let’s call them the Hatfields and the McCoys – are each touting those portions of the Mueller Report that best support their particular mountain hollow and ignoring the rest. Is there any fire under the smoke… Continue Reading

SOCIALISM; 04/30/2019

There has been a lot of chatter lately about “socialism”, sometimes referred to as “democratic socialism”. Let’s take a minute and learn a little about what socialism is, and is not. “Socialism” is a government and economic theory. In a socialist system, the means of production – i.e., industry, manufacturing, agriculture, transportation, etc. – as… Continue Reading

MUELLER REPORT, ETC.; 04/22/2019

My Muse has not been with me for some time. I believe she (or he) is so tired of the same old story lines re-packaged and re-hashed that a sabbatical was required.  However, some note of the end of the nearly two year Mueller investigation and subsequent report  is worthwhile. Have I read the entire… Continue Reading

    I’ve read several articles written recently about the Mueller report. Yours is the most concise, thoughtful, and politically insightful analysis yet. Too bad the politicians aren’t listening.

    Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to make a great article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and don’t seem to get anything done.

THIS, THAT AND THE OTHER; 04/01/2019

In an alternate universe, what I am writing might be taken as an April Fools Joke. But, it isn’t.   CRISIS ON THE SOUTHERN BORDER. Yes, there truly is a crisis on our Southern border. And the face of the crisis are asylum seekers, men, women and children fleeing their violence-ridden home countries for refuge… Continue Reading
