FOOLS RUSH IN; 08/07/2019

No theme; just random topics during a hot, Texas summer.  Democrat Casting Call. It appears to me that there are 2 dominant reasons for the series of “debates” (and I use the word loosely) among the democrat contenders. The first is to winnow the field, based largely on name ID. The second is to garner… Continue Reading

TALKING POINTS; 07/31/2019

Congress leaves tomorrow for SIX WEEKS. They must be really tired. After all (1) they solved the humanitarian crisis on the southern border, (2) secured the border, (3) fixed our broken immigration and asylum laws, (4) set up a mechanism to fix our crumbling infrastructure, (5) passed a new health care law that includes no… Continue Reading

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… Continue Reading

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

D DAY; 06/06/2019

It has been an exceptionally beautiful Spring here in the Texas Hill Country. We have been blessed with abundant rain at the right times along with plentiful sunshine.

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
