President Trump, Please Stop Attacking The First Amendment of the Constitution That You Swore To Protect

Today at the CPAC convention the President of the United States made the following (outrageous) claim: “Nobody loves it [the First Amendment] better than me.” Unfortunately, when President Trump uses this kind of language, it is almost always followed by a bunch of statements antithetical to the protection of whatever he just claimed to love… Continue reading President Trump, Please Stop Attacking The First Amendment of the Constitution That You Swore To Protect

Democrats Need To Get “Woke”: It’s Time For Strategy Not Games

I was at the meeting of the Washtenaw Democrats a few weeks ago where State Democratic Chairperson Brandon Dillon brush off strategy question after strategy question. Mr. Dillon’s answer to all the strategy questions that he faced was that Democrats need to “first, regain power” before starting to talk about strategies that the party doesn’t have… Continue reading Democrats Need To Get “Woke”: It’s Time For Strategy Not Games

Please, “Be Weak.”America Needs More So-Called “Wusses!”

I am not kidding, America needs more so-called wusses. I often hear people talking about the so-called “wussification of America” (obviously intended as insulting men for having less desirable feminine aspects aka it is a purposefully gendered term).

There are rumors that the Democratic leadership is considering allowing POTUS to get his SCOTUS nomination through confirmation rather than risk the GOP changing Senate rules and getting rid of the supermajority cloture requirement (60 votes on Supreme Court nominees and Senate legislation). Fox even presented a play-by-play of what would happen if the Democrats fought… Continue reading 3 Reasons the Democrats Cannot Back Down On SCOTUS

5 Problems With the Muslim Ban (Huge)

It is a Muslim Ban (everyone who is “for it” is thrilled about it). The vast majority of terrorists who have attacked us were either home grown or from countries that are not on the list (the odds of getting hit by lightning are higher than being attacked by a foreign terrorist in the United States… Continue reading 5 Problems With the Muslim Ban (Huge)

A Note Of Solidarity From a Christian Saddened By Current Events

I am a practicing Christian who is very disturbed by what happened yesterday. I only share this so that people know that not all Christians (or I hope even most Christians) agree with what happened yesterday (the irony is not lost on me that many of Jesus teachings occurred in Syria). I do not claim… Continue reading A Note Of Solidarity From a Christian Saddened By Current Events
