Hollywood Hypocrites

I did not watch the Oscars show last night and instead watched Manchester By The Sea. It was a pretty good movie but kind of depressing. But apparently I was not alone in skipping the show. The overnight Nielsen ratings showed a drop of 4% from last year’s show and that show was down as… Continue reading Hollywood Hypocrites

Republicans and Democrats – Where Do They B0th Go Now?

Both major political parties in the United States are struggling with how to deal with the fringe parts of their supporters. The realists in each party know that unless you can appeal to the moderates and independents in the nation you are not going to keep winning elections. If we learned nothing in the past… Continue reading Republicans and Democrats – Where Do They B0th Go Now?

Health Care – Where Do We Go

I read an article today about health insurance and it struck me as hitting at the basic problem facing the nation on this issue. It discussed two different individuals who have very different views with what ObamaCare has produced. Both of the individuals are self-employed and have to buy their health care on the exchange. But… Continue reading Health Care – Where Do We Go

A brand new poll is out by the Havard-Harris organization (their first one collaborating) and it produces some interesting results.

Years ago I… Continue reading A Poll On What The American People Want

Not Ready For Prime Time

After last year’s elections President Obama looked back and said that he felt the American public supported his policies but that Democrats had failed in the public relations effort and that is why they lost the election. If effect he maintained that he was right on policy and the people just did not realize how… Continue reading Not Ready For Prime Time

Racism in the United States

I went to the movies this weekend and watched Hidden Figures. For those than don’t know the movie I highly recommend it. It is the true story of African American women who worked at NASA during the initial space program. Their jobs were to check the calculations of engineers. The movie highlights the discrimination of… Continue reading Racism in the United States

Civil Debate and Political Discourse

I am watching the first 100 days of the Trump presidency with a clear eye and clear mind. I think that what you are seeing is what he promised he would do and that is unlike most politicians. To that end it is driving the left crazy because they object to what he promised and… Continue reading Civil Debate and Political Discourse

The Topsy Turvy World of Politics

It is funny how things can turn around in short period of time and what seemed inevitable and what reality brings is a surprise. A year ago most pundits predicted the Republican party would be in total disarray and some even went as far as predicting the demise of the party as we knew it… Continue reading The Topsy Turvy World of Politics
