There are other times some of us think about it—when everyone else seems to have forgotten. Continue reading “But We Have Forgotten—9/11/01”

For over two years of the Trump presidency we forgot about draining the swamp. Most of what we heard was a tidal wave of hatred and accusation against Trump from his opposition—including the media. There was also the ongoing investigation into whether or not Donald Trump colluded with Russia to interfere with the election. This investigation seemed positioned to give a back-bone to every bit of hatred his opposition could throw at him. It seemed it was designed to legitimize the idea of Trump being corrupt and not trustworthy. If they could cast that image on him from the beginning, then perhaps other accusations would stick too.

It seems fitting to add my own little bit to the storm that raged in the political landscape for several solid weeks.

Alfie Evans was born in Liverpool in May 2016. He was healthy when he was born, but according to his parents, he was a bit agitated. Nothing too unusual. Later though he showed signs of impairment. He could not lift his head very easily, his limbs jerked occasionally, and his eyes rolled back at times. Continue reading “Alfie Evans: The Story And Tragedy—What We Can Learn”
It could be confusing to the uninitiated person, perhaps returning from a long voyage to outer space, as to who runs Washington. When Obama was president, it was easy for Republicans to pretend pain over concessions. But they always claimed they were necessary since Obama would veto, if he didn’t get what he wanted. There were some things they sent to his desk, knowing he would veto them. Now we know those were just a show too. Continue reading “Republicrats—Who Runs Washington?”
