Lucifer and Politics

Share

American Politics has gone to Hell. Literally. If the American Republican Party were virtuous, there would only be a handful of presidential candidates. They might include; Rand Paul, Carly Fiorina and Mark O, Rubio as leaders in the current primary. Chris Christie might be doing OK. Entertainers like Trump and zealots like Cruz would be long gone. They should not…

Reality Check

Share

A quick note to my Democrat friends. Still one year away and the 2016 Presidential election is now assured to be a Republican victory. The attack on Paris and the acceptance of Syrian refugees into the United States have moved the election to where it is now the Republicans to lose. Can they still lose it? Sure, the most likely way…

The most entertaining presidential debate I can recall. The Republicans are off to a good start. Trump performed as expected going down in flames to a watery grave before they even got started. His failure to commit to the…

First Republican Debate: The JV Team

Share

Winner: Carly Fiorina Losers: None Breakouts: Possibly Carly Fiorina, I didn’t see it happen for anyone else. The debate went smoothly and was well behaved. None of the awkward moments we saw in the last Obama/Romney debates. Each candidate had an opportunity to impress. Most were well practiced and ready for the questions which seemed tailored to give each candidate…

Bernie vs. Donald; the main event?

Share

Imagine the distinct possibility of a national election touting Bernie and The Donald as the main event. It seems to be the political apex for a divided nation hooked on television with consummate one liner put downs and where politics are gleaned from bumper stickers or Pinterest platitudes. The possibility while moving from unthinkable to almost probable, would certainly be…
