It’s All About Us

Trump3by Rosalys11/7/16
It’s time for another political thread. There are (at last count) 154 comments on The Two Donald Trumps, and it is just becoming too difficult to keep track of the discussion. There don’t seem to be any new articles coming forth (because of fear induced by the new rules?) and so More » • (1048 views)

Voting Technology in 2016

2016Primariesby Jon N. Hall8/24/16
Americans are getting only the amount and kind of “democracy” that the professional politicians (i.e. the establishment, the “insiders”) want us to have. When it comes to democracy, we Americans just aren’t getting the entire thing, the whole enchilada, the real deal; and this in the Land of the Free. More » • (681 views)

A new way to spell tyranny: TYRNC.

BananaRepublicTrumpby Pat Tarzwell5/27/16
Editor’s note: This is stream-of-consciousness writing by Mr. Tarzwell, fresh from a red-eye flight as a delegate to the Republican National Convention. I don’t have time to clean up the spelling nor do I want to. This gives you a glimpse of a man tired, abused, and beaten by scoundrels, but still trudging on (we hope). More » • (2075 views)

Vote with Your What?

StatueDavidby Deana Chadwell7/23/16
I’m tired of people boasting that they are “voting with their conscience.” I was confused and appalled to hear Ted Cruz utter those words the other night. Does anyone even know what that even means? More » • (3100 views)

Do You Lock Your Doors At Night?

WireFenceby Leigh Bravo7/18/16
Do you lock your doors at night? If you answered yes to this question, then tell me why? Do you lock them in order to keep out those you don’t know or those who might intend you harm? Do you lock them so strangers cannot enter your house at anytime of day or night? More » • (1907 views)

Looking Fore & Aft

horse latitudesby Glenn Fairman   7/13/16
Re-printed by popular demand…originally published April 2014  •  Man is a fish out of water. And because of this state of affairs, he acquires a certain pathos that underscores his predicament as an eternal being that for the moment has been tethered in time. More » • (2282 views)

Are Political Parties ‘Private’?

2016Primariesby Jon N. Hall7/9/16
Are U.S. political parties “private” organizations, or are they public? The answer to that question may be at the heart of what is wrong with American politics, and there doesn’t seem to be an agreed upon answer to it. More » • (701 views)

When Liberals Drive Other Liberals More Batty than They Already Are  •  It’s funny that liberals try to advance the caricature of the stuffed-shirt conservative. It’s projection, actually, because “killjoy” could be synonymous with “progressive.” More » • (1350 views)

Plan B for the GOP: Tilting at Windmills?

2016Primariesby Jon N. Hall7/1/16
As the Republican National Convention draws nigh, there is a movement afoot among some GOP delegates to “open” the convention and replace the party’s presumptive nominee with someone else, someone more “appropriate,” someone more, uh … Republican. More » • (1905 views)

Delegates to Both Conventions Need to Start Over from Scratch

ClintonHugby Jon N. Hall6/25/16
One of the more revolting things in American politics is when our politicians get onstage and allow us to watch them embrace each other. Even male politicians will wrap their arms around each other and hug each other as though they were the best of friends and haven’t seen each other in twenty years. More » • (762 views)

To Trump or Not To Trump

ToTrumpOrNotby Leigh Bravo6/23/16
What will happen if Hillary Clinton wins in November? There has been much speculation that we will continue to have a failing economy. More regulations. More taxes. More loss of liberty. More loss of Religious freedom. More loss of our second amendment rights. More » • (917 views)
