Thoughts after first presidential debate

My first reaction to tonight’s debate was somewhat underwhelming in terms of substance. Biden made it to the end with only a handful of stammers. He was mostly clear and stayed mostly on message. President Trump exhibited an almost non-stop onslaught. It likely didn’t sway many nor lose current supporters. President Trump was more interruptive,… Continue reading Thoughts after first presidential debate

Resolution to Change the Locks

But Eric, you’re more in line and in agreement with the Republican Party and conservatives than the Democrats, so why is most of your energy these days put towards the demolition of the Republican Party and conservatives? Why all the mockery? Good question, glad you asked. Let me answer it the long way. You have… Continue reading Resolution to Change the Locks

SOTU Drinking Game 2020

The State of the Union is tonight. This will be President Trump's next to final address to the nation unless he wins another term later this year. A tabulation of all television "news" broadcasts in the final two months of 2019 shows 93% of all stories about President Donald Trump and his administration were negative… Continue reading SOTU Drinking Game 2020

This is What You Want, This is What You Get

I said I’d be focusing less on the federal government and more on local solutions but, wait, I’m gonna get back to that in just a minute. First, I feel the three ring circus in Washington needs to be called out for what it is. Regardless of what side you fall on or maybe you’ve… Continue reading This is What You Want, This is What You Get

A Libertarian Perspective – Immigration

Immigration has always been an issue in the Americas, not just North America. But all the Americas. Starting several thousand years ago, homo-sapiens crossed the Siberian land bridge, entered what is now Alaska, and over several generations, made their way all the way down to what is now Argentina and Chile. We’re something of a… Continue reading A Libertarian Perspective – Immigration

The Return of the Steady

Miss me? Yeah, I’ve been away a bit. Partially intentional and partially by simply tiring of the circus that has become American politics. The era of Trump has turned the Republican Party into a party of zero ideas and a cult of personality and worse, the Democrats into raging weirdos also working with fun-time personalities… Continue reading The Return of the Steady

SOTU Drinking Game 2019

The State of the Union is tonight, delayed one week from the partial government shutdown where no one really felt its effects, but the nightly news could not get enough of it. This will be President Trump's second address to the nation. A tabulation of all television "news" broadcasts of 2018 shows (just like 2017)… Continue reading SOTU Drinking Game 2019

An Acceptable Gridlock

My beloved Libertarian Party didn’t do as well as I hoped this 2018 mid-term. And I’m part of the problem. For the first time in over twenty-years, I did not vote straight Libertarian. This time, I voted a mix of Libertarian and Democrat. I used to vote Republican if no Libertarian was on the ballot.… Continue reading An Acceptable Gridlock

American Homage

On August 23, 2018, someone on Twitter reminded everyone William Wallace was executed that same day in 1305 in the most horrible fashion. He was castrated, disemboweled and innards burned in front of him. He was hanged and finally beheaded. This occurred because of his failure to submit to the King of England. He chose… Continue reading American Homage

Remember when words had meaning? Trump and Russian election interference.

Remember when words had meaning?

Well, it took 18 months for President Donald Trump to try to "act presidential." Remember that call from the #NeverTrump movement and so many afflicted with liberal derangement? It is a non-stop cry from the talking heads on cable news outlets and from many of the voices on talk radio. How did it take this… Continue reading Remember when words had meaning?

State Break Away

The Helsinki Summit held on July 16, 2018, demonstrated to the world something very shocking. That a United States President would grant equal value of the word of a pathological lying, dictator, murdering thug of a former KGB Colonel, on equal grounds as the entire United States intelligence community. When asked if Russia meddled in… Continue reading State Break Away

It’s not a simple problem so it’s not a simple fix

Emotionally charged imagery and audio, taken out of context, has whipped many into a lather. The parroted phrase of the day is, "children being ripped out of their mother's arms." There has been a sudden surge in media coverage of something that has been taking place for over 40 years, albeit with minor tweaks along… Continue reading It’s not a simple problem so it’s not a simple fix
