Trump Shakes Up Cabinet Again, Turns Left

MAR-A-LAGO CLUB, FL (UP) 1 Apr – In a stunning reversal of his first two years of his administration, President Trump today announced he has had a change of heart and now embraces the socialist platform. This was followed by several new cabinet nominations, including long-time opponent Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont as Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), […]

PODCAST: Why We Work

PODCAST: Why we work. In this age of entitlement, some young people are wondering if they should be enjoying life as opposed to working as diligently as we do. This explains why Millennials do not seriously think about long-term employment. Studies indicate they would rather see the world now, not later, sample new delicacies, relax […]

Democracy vs. Republic

One of my pet peeves involving politics is when people misstate our form of government. Normally, I would claim this as the fault of uneducated young people, but many politicians, members of the press, as well as grown-ups are also guilty of this faux pas. No, we most definitely do not live in a “democracy,” […]

THE MIDDLE CLASS: Separating Capitalism from Socialism

One of the fundamental differences between capitalism and socialism is in the area of class structure and, unfortunately, many people do not grasp this difference. Under capitalism, there are three levels: an upper class representing super successful people who have earned a fortune, the middle class representing John/Jane Doe who works diligently to put food […]

The Inner Beauty of Women

I want to speak for a moment on the beauty of women. No, I’m not a cosmetologist, dermatologist, hair dresser, or fashion coordinator, just an ordinary heterosexual with a fondness for the opposite sex. I always knew there were differences between boys and girls, but this didn’t become obvious to me until I entered junior […]

Democrats Are Spinning A Real National Emergency

Is it unlawful? Is it unprecedented? No, and No. Because the Congress will not fund the southern wall, President Trump has no alternative but to declare a national emergency to obtain funding and continue construction efforts. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claims such action is unprecedented. Senate Minority Chuck Schumer (D-NY) tweeted it would be […]

Time For A National Debate on Socialism

At the February 5th State of the Union address, President Trump threw down the gauntlet to Democrats by declaring,  “America was founded on liberty and independence, and not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free, and we will stay free. Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”  […]

Why We Have To Take Alexandria O’Casio-Cortez Seriously

Since she began running for Congress, most Republicans have considered Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as nothing more than a joke. Her gaffs when talking to the press have become legendary (see “Youth Will Have It’s…Oops!”). The fact she was elected and installed as the youngest member of the House of Representatives as a “Democrat-Socialist” should be […]

Pavlovian Politics

We have all seen people on both sides of the political aisle use catch phrases routinely in response to political topics, but it seems the Democrats have honed this skill to razor sharpness. For example, in her recent “60 Minutes” interview, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was asked by Anderson Cooper if she thought President Trump was a […]

NO SURPRISE HERE: Democrats Are Liberal

The Gallup organization has just published an on-going study on trends in political ideology, titled, “U.S. Still Leans Conservative, but Liberals Keep Recent Gains” (Jan 8th). Not surprising, conservatives continue to outnumber liberals by 35% to 26%. Nor is it a surprise that 76% of Republicans consider themselves conservative. The startling news here is, for the first […]

Push Button Grievances

I find it interesting how people tend to have knee-jerk reactions to certain things. It’s kind of like a Pavlovian response we turn to in certain situations, particularly as we get older. For example, years ago when I visited my grandparents in Buffalo, New York, my grandfather would automatically go into a tirade if he […]
