It seems Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin are on the same drugs!
Since Trump has lauded Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, even calling the move “genius”, I believe the US government should seize the Mar-a-Lago, and other Trump assets (if there are any others that are truly soluble), as partial reparation for the huge moral and criminal damage that man has done to this country.

With the state of the nation as a whole in the worst predicament in the majority of our lifetimes, our government has FINALLY decided to get proactive in providing much-needed additional support through the current coronavirus emergency. But is the benefit of the people the motivating factor? Au contraire!

It is most definitely a heart-warming story about the recovery of a mountain hiker on Mount Ranier in Washington state that’s making headline news today. However, I have to seriously question the priority of health officials in that case. Is this “story” even true, or is it “fake news” designed with the intent to give readers a “warm, fuzzy” ray of sunshine during these surrealistically dismal times?

My Father is now in his 80s, and has lived through only two more US presidencies than I have, FDR and Truman. This upcoming election has me in a quandary. I don’t and never did like Donald Trump, but don’t know enough about Joseph Biden to make a sound decision on my vote next month! All I know is, I’ve lived through a dozen changes of the guard and have never been this uncertain about the direction this country is heading!

Twenty years ago, the upcoming election was a piece of cake for this guy, simply vote a straight ticket for the party of choice – in my case, Republican. But these days, it’s not so black and white.

Yeah, we “baby boomers” are all getting older, and so with that fact, we can expect the inevitable passing of someone who’s had some impact on our lives to occur more frequently. But the loss of Penny Marshall really hit home.

Has anyone else noticed that when you click on Google News, any link sends into an abyss of “fake news” or various and assorted other crap sites? Certainly you have!

Reading Jon Meacham’s Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush a couple of months ago, I was reminded of just how effective George H. W. Bush was as President. He bailed out the national banking system, cleaned up the Exxon Valdez oil spill, strongly condemned the Chinese government over the Tiananmen Square incident, signed the Fair Labor Standards Amendments which raised minimum wage, ended the Dictatorship of drug trafficker Manuel Noriega, brought down the Berlin Wall, ended the Cold War, signed the Clean Air Act, and served justice internationally with his military intervention into the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq.

One of the very first items on President Trump’s agenda when he first took office was to curtail illegal immigration from south of the border by building a “Wall.” Now, halfway through his term, a massive exodus consisting of thousands of refugees, many of them Hondurans, is approaching northward towards the US-Mexico border seeking sanctuary in the good ol’ U.S. of A. It’s like they’re just trying to piss him off!
