Trumphalism

There is a pretty insidious wave of intransigence washing over the GOP. It isn’t the moral prerogative to lead by virtue of having the superior arguments, policies or ideology. It isn’t a push to institute more free market reforms, lower taxes or smaller government. Unfortunately, it isn’t even about increasing the amount of liberty Americans…

Hashtag TrumpBible

I played on Twitter over the past couple of days. In honor of CNN interviewing Donald Trump about the Bible and his less than impressive answers, Twitter took up the challenge with #TrumpBible… C’mon Kells, even you have to admit that some of these are funny. utahprez9:30am via Hootsuite CNN: Favorite part of the Bible?…

Butt Load of Male Bovine Fecal Material

When a society discards individual responsibility in favor of collective or corporate control, it is saying that random killings like those in Charleston and Roanoke – and the brutal massacre of the deputy sheriff in Harris County (Houston), Texas – are acceptable collateral damage. Think on this, my fellow Americans…if I go for a drive…

Rule 5: Our Future First Lady?

Melania Knauss Trump ain’t exactly Michelle….. She was a model: Melania would be the second First Lady not born in the US. Louisa Adams, wife of John Quincy Adams, was born in London, England. Melania was born in Sevnica which was then a part of Yugoslavia.   As beautiful as she is, she is also…

Laws Are For Suckers

“There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him.” ~ Robert A. Heinlein, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress Laws are evidently for suckers. More accurately stated, respect for the law is apparently a fungible concept…

A Tale of Two Mikes

Yesterday on the Facebook, I had two very different Mikes come to the same conclusion with regard to my liking Donald Trump. The first Michael, whom I refer to as M., and who owns this site, warned me that “the Don” is a flip-flopper who sounds like the Bill and Hillary of yesteryear. The only…

AGENDAS: Top Down, Bottom Up

Originally posted on The Oil for Your Lamp:
I heard a talk radio host discussing Donald Trumps handling of Jorge Ramos during a recent press conference.  This radio host said that he believes what we were seeing in Trump is the start of the ‘top down’ aspect of the ‘Top Down, Bottom Up, Inside Out’…

A Little Sunday Story

A few years ago, our family suffered a terrible continuum of disease and death – my wife’s grandparents, her aunt, my estranged father – a seemingly unending flow of bad news, each separated by mere months rather than years. We were living in Scotland at the time and I can remember one day in particular…

Trump is Mobile ~

This morning I watched Trump’s speech in Mobile, AL. I tell you this boy is on top of things. He knew very well of the Chinese currency, and the plants (Nabisco and Ford) that moved to Mexico. I do not think people should so easily dismiss an intelligent billionaire……. jes sayin. The beauty part that…

Master of the House

On the FB, sweet M. posted a very good article which I was hoping he would repost here. My argument to him was that it sounded as if he was proclaiming states’ rights with regards to immigration. He said it is a federal issue, and I agree, but then I think of these sanctuary cities,…

The Magic Position

Yesterday, Trump posted some specifics on his positions, while also calling out one senator who apparently is bought and paid for by FB owner, Zuckerberg. Personally, I compare Trump to a tabloid magazine journalist in that he unapologetically exposes the dirt on the D.C. cartel (a Cruz term) which is funded on the backs of…

Sí, Se Puede

Trump is leading, of that there is no question. Equally without question is that Trump is no conservative – but he is spouting sound bites that resonate with conservatives. He’s like a one man polling firm. That should tell the GOP where people disposed to vote for Republicans want them to focus. At this stage,…
