Houston, We Have Another Moron

Houston, we have another moron.

Politicians aren't immune from saying stupid things. Sometimes it is a slip of the tongue. However, politicians often try to sound knowledgeable on subjects they know nothing about. Thus, they end up showing their ignorance in a very public and pronounced way. This is one of those occasions. Houston, we have another moron. Back...

A Billionaire On Welfare, Mexican Edition

A billionaire on welfare, Mexico edition

The other day Ramona posted a meme on Facebook, and it got me to thinking about President Trump's planned tariffs against Mexico. There is some truth to the meme, don't get me wrong. Yes, Americans will pay those tariffs, not Mexicans. However, it sells the situation short. President Trump is a billionaire on welfare. However, it's Mexican...

Tillerson is “dumb as a rock”. Who hired him?

To be clear, the headline isn't my opinion. I don't think Rex Tillerson is "dumb as a rock". In fact, I think he's a pretty smart guy. Moreover, I find that he did a pretty good job as Secretary of State. I originally thought he was a poor choice. However, I conceded that I was wrong a...

Mueller Report Confirms

There were a few things in the Mueller report that may have surprised some people. However, for the most part the Mueller report confirms what we all already knew. Yes, all of us.

Illegal Immigrants to Sanctuary Cities. Good Idea?

Yesterday, the Washington Post reported that the Trump Administration had considered releasing illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities. On CNN, the right wing pundits I heard questioned the authentic of the report. Fake news, unnamed sources. That type of thing. However, President Trump confirmed the report and doubled down on it in a tweet today.

The Counter Puncher; Trump Defense Gone Absurd

President Trump Counter Puncher

Tonight, Adolfo Franco was on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 show defending President Trump's recent attacks on John McCain. Adolfo had the audacity to use the "counter puncher" defense. Yes, he tried to get away with saying the President is counter-punching a dead guy. This is the level of absurdity that Trump defenders think will fly on television....

Misunderstanding the Memorandum


Full disclosure. I wasn't aware that, in a trade deal, the name of the contract is called a Memorandum of Understanding. In fact, if you had asked me what a Memorandum of Understanding was yesterday, I would have guessed it was some type of preliminary deal. I, however, am not the President of the United States. I...

Howard Schultz Townhall on CNN


As an Independent voter, I was looking forward to the Howard Schultz Townhall on CNN. While I share some of the concerns expressed by Democrats about his potential candidacy helping President Trump get reelected, I was very interested in hearing from a displaced Democrat. I am his political counterpart, a displaced Republican. For this reason, he had...

Words or Actions? Which Matters More?

I have often been critical of the President of the United States for his tweets, his name calling, and some of the more obnoxious comments he has made. Many a Trump supporter has said to me "pay attention to what he is doing, not what he is saying", and that is a fair point. It got me to wondering...
