Opinion: Bad News is Like Bad Cholesterol, You Need to Stop!

OPINION: Politicians & Diapers Must Be Changed Often & for the Same Reason. True or False?

Like the Civil War for example.

OPINION: Why Don’t You Like Biden? You Know You Do, at Least a Little. Isn't it Time to Admit It?
It's been almost three years since Joe Biden was elected President. Verified as President through various Constitutional processes and in spite of the January 6 Insurrection. Three years of relative calm in DC, not counting the House Republicans' fireside chats on how to Impeach him for reasons that test one’s ability to follow a circuitous path to inane conclusions like - Well, because they did it to Trump.Read full story
Opinion: How Should We Remember 9/11? Perhaps Not In the Way We Once Did

Opinion/Satire: Is It Time We Impeached All 535 Members of Congress?
The swell of rhetoric is rising once again in Washington, like the waves along either coast after Hurricanes Idalia and Hillary swept through. Only this time the damage won’t be to boats, roofs, RVs parked in driveways, houses along hilltops, or cars floating off Dealer lots on Main Street. It will be to our democracy - but heck it will be entertaining.Read full story
