I Think the Senate is Handling this SCOTUS Thing all WRONG…

The sides seem dug in.  Determined.  No one will budge.  The President recommends a new Supreme Court Justice to replace (no one of course replaces this justice) Justice Scalia.  Merrick Garland.  A good solid judge but probably more liberal than Scalia. The GOP controlled Senate (elections do matter) say not even a hearing.  No vote […]

Trump Bashing Cruz Supporters Can Dish It Out, but They Can’t Take It

While Ted Cruz has been mostly silent on criticism of Donald Trump, the same cannot be said about his supporters. There are a lot of people bashing Trump these days but none more vociferous than the Cruzers. And for the record, I am not blaming Cruz for the actions of his supporters. And the Trump […]

Reconsidering Trump 2016 AND Convention of States

Donald Trump? When Donald Trump started making noises again that he was going to run for president, I laughed him off. Just a publicity stunt, he’ll never actually run. Trump could never be a serious candidate, could he? Besides, I have said many times that while on the surface it makes sense to have someone […]
