The Trumpish Cabinet

In typical liberal fashion, the mean weenie left has called Donald Trump's cabinet horrible things. "Corrupt nitwits." "Career criminals." "Greedy thugs." "Clueless dunces." "Bad dancers."

CNN’s a Beacon in Dark Times

The Cable News Network has never quite lived up to its slogan as "The most trusted name in news" - due largely to the public's dismal view of journalism in general coupled with CNN's own unforced errors. Yet, among today's news options, CNN has become invaluable.

Presidents’ Day: Untold Stories Abound

Since Presidents' Day is fast approaching, it is appropriate that three of the books I'm currently juggling on my Kindle Fire are "Lady Bird and Lyndon," "The General Vs. The President" (MacArthur and Truman) and "The Wars of the Roosevelts."

Don’t Just Reform Taxes, Cut Them

Many Americans who have wrestled with a 1040 form, or who have paid someone to prepare their taxes, no doubt cheered the news that Congress will soon resume working on tax reform.

Trump’s Numbers Don’t Add Up

Donald Trump remains haunted by the fact that more people opposed him in November, about 54 percent, than voted for him. The "mandate" he cites repeatedly while making executive orders and rash pronouncements doesn't exist.

Democrats Are Completely Lost

Shattered. Splattered. Scattered. Battered. Tattered. Skewered and plattered. Barely mattered. That was the Democrats after November's election. But surely in the months since, they'd come together to stand aligned in the face of the flaky imperiousness of our so-called President. You'd think. And ripe bananas make a fine masonry grout.

Still Searching for a Diet Panacea

I know Democrats and progressives are going nuts over President Trump's first few weeks in office - I know the Middle East is a mess and that we have no small number of incredible challenges at home - but I have my own worries.

On the Supreme Court, Democrats Simply Lost

When Senate Republicans decided last year to ditch their constitutional duty - by stiffing President Obama's eminently qualified Supreme Court nominee, denying him even the courtesy of a hearing - they took a big political risk. They gambled that the voters wouldn't punish them on election day.

Playing Tobacco Free

"A healthier nation in one generation" is more than a public health slogan; it is a goal that is achievable and vital to economic and physical health of all Americans. Every parent, grandparent and community resident wants a better world, and better health for our children. There are steps that we can take to ensure better health for the next generation, starting from the very beginning with playing tobacco free.
