Up until her recent death she was heard each week explaining politics on NPR’s Morning Edition. Earlier in her career she was seen on weekends ‘talking-head’Continue reading “Biography: Cokie Roberts.”

Lets do a little A and B’ing.

So, let’s compare. Let’s compare party policy or as they use to say, platforms. Comparing what Republicans want from an election and their candidates versus the Democrat proposed policies or party platform and their candidates. Look this up from a credible source or call your respective party or candidate to verify. This is policy andContinue reading “Lets do a little A and B’ing.”

Maybe I could stop paying taxes as well.

Paying Taxes. I have filed taxes since I was seventeen. However I am tired of paying taxes for the rich. My tax money has been used to pay for filling potholes in my little town and to buy M-1 Army tanks and railroads for America. Taxes also used to build vast ribbons of Interstate highwaysContinue reading “Maybe I could stop paying taxes as well.”

No need to go to the ER.

It has never been understood by others and myself why corporations and large businesses resist in helping to establish government sponsored health care. Medicare works quite well so why not have Medicare for all? It would take away such a heavy costly burden from businesses with hundreds enough thousands of employees. Just the administration andContinue reading “No need to go to the ER.”

I do not celebrate President’s day.

Not me and never. Being an old fashioned person and maybe just an old person I only celebrate Lincolns and Washington’s birthdays.

To hell with partisan politics.

I’m tired of it. We need someone or some group who can keep us on an even Kiel. The last president did his best to run our country into the ground. He was more taken by authoritarians and rogues than people vested in normal American politics. We knew he was capable of this by hisContinue reading “To hell with partisan politics.”

How many of you would like to move to Russia?

Let’s see a show of hands. If you do many rights and privileges will be taken away. Russia is an autocratic governed country. A political system some here recently would like to switch to. Getting rid of democracy as a result. Speak ill of the autocratic government and you might be poisoned or put inContinue reading “How many of you would like to move to Russia?”

Both the Right and Left are wrong.

I have been both a registered Republican and a Democrat. But now neither speaks for me because I think for the most part both are missing the point. The point being is what most Americans want and need. Needing good health care, public education, good paying jobs, improvement and repair of infrastructure, clean environment, andContinue reading “Both the Right and Left are wrong.”
