Something Different: Streety; A Short Story

There is always a lull after an electi0n. And a period where we have all had enough of politics, at least for a while. I have been posting some writings of Paul Yarbrough for a few weeks and he suggested a short story. Paul grew up and lives in the deep South. I hope this […]

A Wrap up on the 2016 Presidential Election Polls

I suppose I could start out by writing “I was right and the polls were wrong.” But I won’t. That would be gloating. However, I spent a lot of time telling people the polls were wrong. That they were over sampling Democrats and often under sampling Independents (not to mention Republicans). Also, the narrative that […]

The Left has Brainwashed their Voters. Talk About the Party of Hate! Call in the Shrinks!

The Democrats have spent a lot of time and money in this election pushing a message of hate to “energize” their base. Eight years ago, they didn’t need to do that because Barack Obama was billed as the positive candidate for change. Of course they still did their best to demonize the opposition in both […]

ECONOMICS 101 FOR THOSE WHO CONSUMED LEAD BASED PAINT CHIPS

I have learned to be patient over the last 8 years , attempting to restore to a public discussion common sense and sound economic reasoning , battling at every turn what is often emotionally charged rants from folks who struggle to comprehend basic math. Comments this week in response to an earlier article I had […]

What Could ld YOU (or the Green Party) Buy With SEVEN MILLION dollars?

November 30, 2016

Here is the Politico article on the quixotic (that is being kind) effort by Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein’s efforts to recount key Trump winning states (WI, MI, PA) from the November 8 election. Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein formally added Michigan to the list of states she’s hoping to conduct a recount […]

A Modest Proposal for Delegate Sam Rasoul: Run for Lieutenant Governor as a Democrat (or even maybe a Libertarian)!

November 25, 2016

I sure hope Del. Rasoul isn’t upset at me on this – he is an idealistic young (well younger than me – he’s 35 and I am – well old enough I’ll need to lay down after writing this part of the blog post!) legislator who is in politics for the right reasons.  Consider these […]

President –Elect Trump hits just the right tone

November 22, 2016

I have marveled at the 24/7 news cycle and their often humorous efforts to “ make some news”, if they can’t find any, or when it’s a quiet 24 hour period.  This past week’s constant harping on how the Trump transition team was in meltdown is a case in point. One would think after the […]

LIBERTY and SOVEREIGNTY are On the March – FOUR Nations Renounce the International Criminal Court – MORE Should Join them – Thanks to John Bolton and President G. W. Bush US Has Been Out Since 2002!

November 17, 2016

There was a (discreet) victory lap at work today at the news: Russia to Withdraw From the International Criminal Court YEA!  An enlightened move against the evil, wicked ICC that punishes and targets small, powerless nations in unfair ways and endangers our officials and soldiers. Russian President Vladimir Putin has issued a decree for Russia […]

Mépris

November 16, 2016

I have heard many things post our great experiment in democracy (the fool’s errand–somebody get a rope and give it to our leaders!), but two stand out. One was (and I am paraphrasing since I don’t recall the exact wording) by Fox commentator Tucker Carlson who mentioned that the exhibition of voting was indeed, as […]

Elections Have Consequences: Trump Won

November 16, 2016

Just in case the left has forgotten what Barack Obama said in 2009 in a meeting with Republican leaders, Bob Woodward wrote in his book “the Price of Politics” on a comment Barack Obama made to former Virginia Congressman and Majority Leader Eric Cantor: In one passage in the book, Rep. Eric Cantor presents a […]

Larry Sabato’s Final Electoral Vote Prediction: Hillary 322, Trump 216. Dems Win Senate

November 14, 2016

Why do the news outlets continue to put people like Larry Sabato on TV as if his predictions were grounded in bedrock? I believe Larry Sabato should have his crystal ball checked for cataracts, something I am very familiar with. But even I saw the Trump Train rolling. Bad boy, Larry. Our Final 2016 Picks […]

I Love Trump’s Picks: Reince Priebus Chief of Staff and Stephen Bannon as Strategist

November 14, 2016

I am no fan of Reince Priebus. And I believe that during the Republican Primary he was not always fair to Donald Trump. Trump received extra scrutiny on singing the pledge that he would support the nominee. Not so much because Priebus gave a rip, but because the rest of the candidates feared a Trump […]

And the WINNER of the 2016 Presidential Election is (and he also Won in 2008 and 2012) is…RON PAUL!!!

November 10, 2016

In 2016, we had an event unprecedented in US history – the same person won three consecutive Presidential elections.  And it did not even violate the 22nd Amendment! That person was former Texas Congressman Ron Paul (Ronulus Magnus II for me); now hear me out: In 2008, Paul won the election – not the office […]

TEMPER YOUR EXCITEMENT WITH A DOSE OF POLITICAL REALITY

November 9, 2016

Not having got much sleep last night, allow for some misspelling and or typo’s as I bang away on the keyboard in a coffee reduced stupor. The “ chance” that President –Elect Trump represents is just that, a chance to reshuffle the deck, starting with a quiet and diplomatic removal of Paul Ryan and Mitch […]

President Elect Trump, I Like the Sound of that!

November 9, 2016

I got on the Trump Train early on. I wasn’t alone, but often felt the isolation from my friends who were supporting someone else in the Primary. And I believed that not only could Donald Trump win the primary, but he could also defeat Hillary Clinton. If I had a dollar for every Republican that […]

Hanover County Disenfranchising Elderly and non Ambulatory Voters Trying to Vote Curbside

November 8, 2016

I don’t know if this is just the two precincts where I observed this happening or if it going on everywhere. Having worked the polls on election day as a Magisterial District Chairman, when elderly voters who were unable to walk or stand drove up, either by themselves or with a driver, both the Lee […]

Dirty Job’s Mike Rowe, Voting, and the Work Ethic

November 7, 2016

Photo by USFWS/Southeast I recently saw Mike Rowe (Dirty Jobs) on Fox and Friends in a brief segment regarding, I believe, a Facebook post he made on the current election insofar as voting. Though (I hope my memory is correct) he did not offer support for either of the two front-running candidates. He was contacted […]
