And your new Democratic candidate is… Not a Democrat

Dear God, help us! Heh.  Still between that article, and another one I read but cannot find, the Montana Democrats are in need of a few good candidates.  Perhaps I should throw my hat into the ring as the kind of candidate they need.  You see, I’m not a Democrat…. Continue reading

It’s all fun and games.

I had to post this here, it just seemed too fun not to.  Monopoly has a reputation as a wrecker of friendships and families, a wasteland of destruction for relationships.  I cannot really recall having that experience, but I didn’t play it a great deal after about age 10.  In… Continue reading

A take on the healthcare plan

Economix had a fun tear down of the current plan put forth by the President and the GOP to replace the current ACA.  The author’s politics run counter to Trump’s and the far right, but he does a pretty good job of keeping it real from an economic standpoint.  He… Continue reading

No Longer Economically Viable

There was this Michael Douglas movie back in the early 90’s- Falling Down, where an out of work defense worker spirals downward after he is let go by his company.  In their words, his skill set and position were no longer economically viable for the company to continue employing him….

Accidental Success

I think this current administration may end up one of the more successful ones in history. Not because of great leadership, Trump is a lousy leader. And not because of his deft skills, I think he’s proving rather unqualified, so far. No, it’s going to be great by accident, as… Continue reading

Slash and earn!

OK, so maybe the title isn’t right on the money… but I confess to a love of puns. Trump is on a tear in his second week, looking to continue his momentum to “get things done”.  One of his latest acts is one I endorse.  With great power comes a… Continue reading

Marching side by side

Protests are a funny thing, most people don’t like them even when they have legitimate points.  Most recently I think of the election, the equal rights and various civil rights protests going on since the 9th of November, but I’m also thinking of the Occupy Wall Street movement, the Vietnam… Continue reading

When they came for… I remained silent

With the election and subsequent results, America may be finding its voice for the first time in nearly 60 years.  Then, as now, it is not a cohesive voice, with the country speaking as one, but there are elements of cooperation, of banding together in order to be heard.  President… Continue reading

No clothes and nobody to tell him

Trump orders a media blackout at the EPA It seems his approach to generating new jobs/business will be to essentially remove regulation as a barrier.  I won’t argue that there are many areas where we are over regulated.  Perhaps I’m being self-serving, but I’d argue that the shipping industry is… Continue reading

Manic Monday

Well, It’s the start of his first full week in office.  Kind of interesting.  Pulls out the TPP, and wants to renegotiate NAFTA, too.  I support that move.  Then does the usual Republican thing with abortions, which I wish would just stop.  Enough political back and forth between the Right… Continue reading
