Aren’t We Done Yet?!

I can recall earlier Presidential campaigns that were contemptuous to say the least and how I really, really could hardly bear the wait till the first Tuesday of November. This year is the worst I could ever have imagined. Although, recent postings on social media show us there is nothing new in this world and […]

Fear and Faith, Vote Obama – Go To Hell

Polar opposites.  Fear and Faith.  These concepts do not live together, they are never under the same roof.  When the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Mormons and the Catholics and the Baptists come knocking at my door I am not afraid.  But they are.  Fear is always obvious in their message. The tactics employed by the […]

Voting on Faith, or Faith in Voting

This is a tough one.  We allow freedom of religion, of spirituality, freedom to worship as one chooses.  But what about when it is time to vote.  We want a person in office who is reasonable, intelligent, some education about government or economics or business or work or something is useful.  We look to past […]

The Debates – good or evil

Son, There is value in our election process. The Founding Fathers debated the idea of having the popular vote. There were some who thought the idea was flawed. Some said only landowners should vote. Some said only those with an education should vote. Some wanted a Monarchy. The debate amongst the Founding Fathers – a […]

Old Time Vote Counting

Son, I was a Democratic Committeeman before you were born. In the old partisan elections we Party Committee people appointed election judges and clerks. Usually five Democrats and five Republicans at each precinct. I did all of the despicable political stuff – even appointing your great-aunt as a clerk because she needed something to do […]

Obama – do the same thing

Son, Barack Obama is on a toot. He is using an old line from self-help programs. Yesterday he said, “You keep doing the same thing expecting different results.” Some people call that the essence of insanity – I have a slightly different take on the old saying. Real insanity is in doing the same thing, […]

Electoral College: Protecting Minorities

Son, The race is heating up. The next year will see more debate on the value of the Electoral College, the process of electing the President of the United States of America. It is sort of a big deal.

Yes To Healthy Dialogue – No to This Administration

Dad – I am still under the assumption that all dialogue serves us well, but that some people probably should be removed from the conversation in order to keep it rolling. It is complicated, yes, and we should approach our international situation with care. I have spent the last few years learning how to act, […]
