Running for the Republicans

So yesterday I posited the idea of running for the Democrats as a non-Democrat, and not in the Bernie Sanders kind of why.  I can’t say I’d do the same for the Republicans, at least not at this time.  The first reason is that the Democratic party has, at least… Continue reading

What are we fighting for?

Editor’s Note:  I wrote this back about 3 months or so, ago.  I was going to add a paragraph or two about my Dad, which I might do as an extended piece, but I thought I would get it posted now, as it has spent far too much time on… Continue reading

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

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

Snoop on them as they would snoop on us

http://lastbestnews.com/site/2017/01/prairie-lights-putting-the-public-in-public-records/ Ed writes on something that should be a non-issue, but very clearly is not.  Here in the Big City, the local rag has done battle many times with the Powers That Be to gain access to records that are open to us by the mandate of the People.  Time… Continue reading

Play that funky music white boy- Kareem on Trump

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar wrote a nice essay on Trump, which I think illustrates both his popularity and the frustration many feel right now.  I think it’s a much better expression of what I wrote the other day. For all of that, my biggest takeaway wasn’t something profound, just humorous.  He calls… Continue reading

The Donald

I’m glad he’s running.  There, I said it.  Anyone that knows me will probably raise an eyebrow, or two, depending on whether they can do that Spock thing, or not, but hear me out.  We’ve been stuck in a political rut for quite awhile.  We have a basic two party… Continue reading

Jade(d) Texas

So, it’s now a week or so into Operation Jade Helm.  For those of you at home who have not been watching Fox News, Operation Jade Helm is covert exercise disguised as a very public training operation located in the southern states.  It’s purpose, so we’re given to understand by… Continue reading
