Playing politics in an election cycle

In this episode, I examine recent events through the prism of an election cycle. After all, it should not be a shock to see all of the changes taking place in the last couple of months, knowing this is a mid-term year. Politicians need "wins" to keep their numbers. If the numbers or bad, they… Continue reading Playing politics in an election cycle

Decorum, deceit and Pfizer DNA

In this episode, I start off with recapping a moment from yesterday's State of the Union 2022 speech. As President Joe Biden began to mention flag-draped coffins of our military, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert yelled out, "You put them in, 13 of them," referring to the 13 killed in the Afghanistan debacle. Needless to say she… Continue reading Decorum, deceit and Pfizer DNA

Reaction to Biden’s State of the Union 2022

In this episode, I spend time reacting to President Joe Biden's 2022 State of the Union. Overall, the speech was disjointed, lacked transitions or moments of uplifting inspiration. It became a laundry list of wants, needs and desires with no plan on how to accomplish it. He did have a fairly strong opening and closing… Continue reading Reaction to Biden’s State of the Union 2022

The state of our union is crisis

In this episode, I discuss my thoughts on tonight's State of the Union address for President Joe Biden. First, I know what he should say won't even come close to happening. Biden has been in a world of self-delusion for most of his political career. He is completely tone-deaf to facts and even reality, especially… Continue reading The state of our union is crisis

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

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

SOTU 2018 drinking game

The State of the Union is tonight. This will be President Trump's first. Considering 90% of all media stories (print, radio and television) were negative for our 45th president, it's amazing to see how much was accomplished in his first year. The confirmation of Judge Gorsuch, pulling the US out of bad trade deals, opening… Continue reading SOTU 2018 drinking game

#SOTU in three words and a drinking game

Social media is amazing. We can use it to show people what we are currently eating , who we are with and what we plan to do next. We update our families and friends on our vacations, sporting events or just lounging at home. Businesses hope to get free marketing from it while consumers can… Continue reading #SOTU in three words and a drinking game
