Bannon Ouster + Syria = Higher POTUS Approval

The American (and global) political establishment is so entrenched and arrogant that I personally lean toward "bomb throwing" (no pun intended) in order to break things up. Best representation of this strategy is Steve Bannon's now infamous quote: "Deconstruction of the administrative state." In my Facebook, Twitter and private text message provocations I like to ...

Bannon Ousted from NSC – A Good Thing!

The Freedom Caucus's watershed "victory" of blocking the House AHCA bill was damaging on multiple fronts. Most significantly, in my opinion, is that President Trump now must pay heed to his rock bottom approval ratings.

The Left is bananas for throwing the US ...

Intro Part IV: TPP Platform – LGBTQ…

Overview My views on this topic are fluid and evolving. Like the climate debate, I believe the science is tough to refute: you cannot change your biology : as you cannot refute the fact that the earth is growing warmer. The true debate lies in how to *deal* with the psychological aspect. A 40% suicide ...

Intro Part III: TPP Platform – Homosexuality

Overview I am a born again Christian. By definition I believe homosexuality is a sin. But I also believe same-sex marriage should be 110% legal - zero ifs, ands, or buts. The hypocrisy of the Christian Right to stand up against the legality of same-sex marriage based on the Bible's definition of sin is astonishing. ...
