It has been awhile since I did a podcast or video so I felt I should get out here. The pandemic has changed many many things including my outlook on the future of my country. I do not want to lose my country but it seems it may already be gone. There is a hulking shell, but the actual functioning guts of a REAL country are gone. I touch on Rush Lim…
 
On this Memorial Day, I felt I should talk about my grandfather who fought in the Battle of the Bulge. I recently was gifted a cherished family artifact from WWII. It is a carved wooden cigarette box with a nice “automatic” dispensing feature. It sat on my grandfather’s end table the whole time I knew him. It was always of great interest to my chil…
 
In this podcast, I explain why I think this census is more important than the election. I speculate a Biden win might not lead to a Biden presidency. In fact given what I have been seeing a Biden win could put us over the edge. We are a divided nation. Covid-19 is exposing those divisions. The fact wearing a face mask has become a political stateme…
 
Covid-19 has exposed the flaws and weaknesses in the American system of capitalism. There are many systems of capitalism being executed across the globe. There is the authoritarian capitalism of China. The regulated capitalism of Europe and the oligarchic capitalism of Russia. Maybe Putin’s system is what we most look like right now, which makes se…
 
This podcast is not meant to denigrate the efforts of our government or any others around the world. This is meant to provide some perspective. Many younger folks are now standing in front of me asking questions like, Have you ever seen anything like this? Is this not the worst you have ever seen in America? Will they declare martial law? What is g…
 
Some comments on the Democratic primaries. Frankly, it looks like Biden is going to be “appointed” as the Democratic nominee. If that is the case I think #45 will get four more years. The way the Democratic candidates laid down on Monday before Super Tuesday had to be disappointing to a lot of early voters. I have a suggestion on the COVID-19 coron…
 
The circus continues in Washington and now in Iowa which is also coincident with the State of Union. Goodness, there is a lot happening at once and none of it looks very good. American corruption is on full display for the world to see. The Iowa Caucus debacle is amazing in how brazen the sabotage has become in the Democratic primaries. Even #45 th…
 
The impeachment of #45 will be unconstitutional. A successful impeachment in the House which is then shepherded through the Republican Senate by Mitt cannot restore the republic. It is a sad state of affairs, but it is where we are at as a nation. Congressman Devon Nunes’ line of questioning appeared to reveal the transcript of the phone call was o…
 
If you have not been paying close attention to the financial markets, you may not have heard that the Federal Reserve has had to step in several times over the last few days to control the interest rates being charged overnight between banks. This is smelling a lot like 2008. Frankly, it feels a bit like #45 is running the country as he has run his…
 
Our President apparently has interest in buying Greenland. I cannot say that I blame him frankly. It actually makes good sense, if the global climate is warming up. It makes double good sense if you plan on running your economy by burning fossil fuels to generate power or hindering your access to rare earth ores through a trade war. There is plenty…
 
I should warn everyone there are some F-bombs in this podcast. I am very angry at a sitting president telling duly elected representatives of the people that they need to leave the country. That a duly elected representative HATES the United States. A sitting president incites a crowd to chant for a duly elected congressperson to be deported. This …
 
I am surprised by how upset the right gets about the term “socialism”. All societies have some form of socialism. All must act collectively. The military is the ultimate socialist enterprise. Even a libertarian society must engage in some collective actions. Libertarian-Socialism is not an oxymoron. It is a way of thinking about issues free of part…
 
There was no way people were going to allow me to NOT comment on the Mueller Report. I was never a big fan of impeachment, because I think there are some fundamental issues with our election system that must be addressed. I really think that the only trustworthy election in 2020 will be one on paper ballots. I also talk about some real world exampl…
 
Julian Assange has some very powerful enemies. #45 trumpeted WikiLeaks DNC email dump, but he is silent now. Assange is feared and hated on both sides of the aisle. Democrats are even more virulent in their hatred. I guess the outing of the unDemocratic National Committee to the American people is an unforgivable crime. Chelsea Manning is back in j…
 
We must come together as a nation. The Russian hacking did not FLIP votes. It is possible the a hack revealed DNC emails, but those emails were not faked or altered. Those emails revealed to Americans the undemocratic process inside the Democratic Party. The billionaires put #45 in office not the Russians. Russian propaganda would not be effective …
 
One of the reasons I have such a long memory on politics is that I was paying attention even as a little kid. In fact, that attention I paid to politics as a early elementary school kid meant I knew who Spiro T. Agnew was. The fact that I knew and might even make a joke about it got me a lot of attention from adults. That is powerful stuff and it m…
 
On the 15th anniversary of Saddam Hussein being pulled from his hideout by American troops, I was taken back to aught three. The media referred to it constantly as his “spider hole” all throughout the end of the year back in 2003. It made me think about how 2003 pushed me back into the political debate. I had been fairly apolitical after the birth …
 
I am going to ask for a paper ballot tomorrow. I find it difficult to encourage people to vote, especially if they use a computerized voting machine. These computerized voting machines are laughably insecure. So insecure, one has to wonder if this is purposeful. I guess at this point I have concluded it is purposeful and I am going to vote but only…
 
Things have only got worse on the court since the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas hearings. The breathless and hopeful comparisons to those hearings and the Ford/Kavanaugh ones seem like fantasies. It is not that the comparison is not accurate, but the hopefulness is completely unjustified. We are screwed if this follows the same course as the Anita Hil…
 
I understand that the convictions of Manafort and Cohen make #45’s impeachment seem more likely. However, it is hard for me to get TOO excited about it, because it is bad for the country in many ways. I provide some perspective on impeachment that I have gained by living through previous such times in this country. It also distracts from the gaming…
 
The Supreme Court is on everyone’s mind it seems, because the politicization of the court has meant that the United States is becoming a dictatorship of five robes. It was not meant to be that way. There is a lost check in the system of checks and balances first conceived by the founding fathers and that is jury nullification. I don’t think the Dem…
