The Real Winner of the 2020 Presidential Election

The 2020 U.S. presidential election was contested like no other federal election, both before and after the votes were cast. Now, months later, the data have been compiled and verified, and we can look back at what happened. This analysis largely ignores the electoral vote even though that’s what determines presidential elections. The popular vote …

We Are Addicted

An addict will do anything he can to get his fix. He’ll take the easiest path to get it, often committing illegal acts in the process. His high is bliss. Then one day he’ll overdose so his friends will have to take him to the ER. He’ll be saved and his friends will convince him …

When America Was Great

The 1950s were so different from today. We watched westerns. The town Marshall was always fair and just. The bad guys were easy to spot – rustlers, train and bank robbers and evil landholders. They were always beaten and usually jailed rather than killed. In the 1960s and 1970s, westerns became cop shows. We had …

TEN THINGS PRESIDENT TRUMP CAN DO TO WIN THE HEARTS OF AMERICANS

Dear President-Elect Trump, You astounded almost everyone by winning the 2016 U.S. election for President even though you narrowly lost the popular vote. But, half of all eligible voters in the country didn’t even bother to go to the polls. That means only about a quarter of the U.S. population really wanted you as their …

Trump can’t lose. Clinton can’t win.

Trump can’t lose. He doesn’t want to be President. Who would take care of all his business interests? His ego won’t allow a blind trust. And, it would be a step down in luxury. Nothing in the White House is gold-plated and it’s full of cockroaches and rodents (and not all of them politicians). He …
