Trump, the Gunslinger

I recently wrote that Trump is a polarizing figure.  His enemies hate him with a passion, and if he were to become President again the nation would remain split down the middle.  I stated my preference for someone like Marco Rubio or Ben Carson, men who might be capable of uniting the country. The more […]

A House Divided

As I have noted previously, it is interesting how persons with reasonable intelligence, good educations, and similar values can look at current events and arrive at opinions that are so diametrically opposed.   One’s viewpoint is largely dependent on his or her news sources. An example is afforded by different perspectives on the 2020 election.  Trump […]

Sad and Perilous Times

It seems that each new day President Biden exhibits further signs of incompetency.  I had warned of this before the election, but I take no pleasure in being proved right.  Instead, I am very sad for him – but most of all I grieve for our country.  We are living in perilous times with no […]

Disaster in Afghanistan

Schumer said, “You probably ask yourself the same question I ask myself: How could 74 million people vote for such a despicable human being […]

Maricopa County

The U.S. Census Bureau estimates its population was over 4.5 million in 2020, more than half Arizona’s total. and it is greater in land area than the state […]

Fake News Redux

How does one unlie? In December 2020 President Trump made a call to Georgia state election officials urging them to scrutinize votes in Fulton County.  Trump expressed legitimate concerns about election honesty and expressed his opinion that a thorough review would prove that he had been cheated out of a win.  The Georgia Secretary of […]

Go in Peace!

Many of Trump’s former allies are turning on him.  A few cabinet members and other high officials have resigned. Some accuse him of inciting the recent riots in Washington by his refusal to accept the election results. Trump responds with vicious assaults against these one time friends and supporters of his administration. I detest fair […]
