The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

So Donald Trump wanted to punish women?
Do women want to punish Donald Trump?

Trump wants Nukes for Japan and S. Korea?

um, whatever happened with Nuclear Non-Proliferation?? Does Trump think the world doesn't have enough nuclear bombs? How DOES one spell Armageddon? T-R-U-M-P?

Merrick Garland?

I dreamed last night that the President chose Merrick Garland for the SCOTUS vacancy for two reasons: he's very qualified, and at age 63 would not be as threatening to the GOP as someone much younger would be.

Can you imagine any Republican (or Democratic)  candidates from the past ever acting like today's GOP candidates? Can you imagine JFK calling Nixon "Little Dick?" Tricky Dick? No, our candidates had some dignity. They displayed some dignity that today's candidates just don't have.

Trump's no Bush

I think Mr. Trump must like to hear himself talk. That "speech" he gave earlier in Maine was the nearest nothing I've heard in a long time, going on and on about what he's done, the money he's made, silly, lightweight stuff. I mean, even George W. Bush was better than that, and that's saying something.

Worried about the future

what a disaster for the GOP. Donald Trump is qualified to be President. He may be a buffoon, but he's qualified. And even though his rallies often resemble nazi rallies, I don't think he's Hitler (maybe a very tall Goebbels?) So whatever Romney is planning for today, it's a little late, shoulda been done long ago? I mean, the voters are speaking. Now if Trump doesn't end up with enough delegates at the convention, that's another story. Anyway, as a Democrat, I'm ambivalent... I'm sorta happy the GOP is in such chaos, yet the uncertainty of what is going to happen frightens me. You know George Wallace! won 5 states, with 46 electoral votes in 1968, and we ended up with Nixon. Something similar could happen in 2016.
