Well, one might have predicted it. John Thune’s response to my note attached to his plea for a donation (no contribution was enclosed) to his upcoming campaign was at once disingenuous and self-serving — conveniently avoiding the gist of my complaint. Yes, he and his Republican counterparts …

President Joe Biden, looking around at how to deal with COVID-19’s assault on the economy, is pushing a program that would abet the assault. It would likely eliminate 1.3 million jobs over time, turn some full-time jobs into part-time jobs, raise prices for consumers, put some businesses out…

Recently former President Donald Trump was acquitted for a second time after being impeached. This time, the charge was for inciting an insurrection. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., had written an email to Republican colleagues giving them cover for voting not to convict. “Whi…

Death is the one human experience that connects everyone, regardless of color, creed, class or bank account. The inequity comes only in its manner and timing.

On his first day in office, President Joe Biden signed an executive memorandum reinstating DACA. For those who may have forgotten, DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. It is the policy that protects around 800,000 young people in the United States illegally whom the nation…

One of my favorite allegories is the one about the frog in the pot of water, who got used to the slow rising temperature of a warming pot and ended up boiled to death.

Everything old is new again. The corruptocracy of the Obama administration is back with a vengeance in the White House. Once more, the “S” in “DHS” stands not for security — but for sleaze. Our nation is back for sale to the highest foreign bidders and their “America last” cronies.
