Cutting a deal on DACA

October 9, 2017

Anyone who thought that President Trump was caving to the Democrats without expecting anything in return must not have read “The Art of the Deal,” because Trump put down everything on his wish list, including border wall funding.

The calm before the storm

October 8, 2017

This week, President Trump fired up media speculation by making an oblique reference to an assembly of his senior military staff possibly being the “calm before the storm.”

Jimmy Kimmel is misinformed

I can certainly understand why late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel would feel deeply about health care policy and the Las Vegas shooting. Vegas is his hometown, and his own baby son has a life-threatening medical condition. So viewers tend to cut him a lot of slack...

Frankly, I find it unconscionable that before we even knew the most basic facts about what happened during the horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas – some were already rushing to demand more gun control laws.

"Known Wolf" Attacks

October 2, 2017

Over the weekend, there were two seeming terrorist attacks. At a train station in Marseilles, France, two young women aged 17 and 20 were stabbed to death by a man of reported “North African appearance” who was shouting “Allahu Akbar!” Guards shot him to death.

Monty Hall RIP

October 2, 2017

“Let’s Make A Deal” was addictive fun, but it was also the only game show that inspired a serious statistical probability puzzle known as the Monty Hall Problem.
Apparently, some women basketball players think that bringing divisive political messages into the arena during the National Anthem is working out so spendidly for the NFL, they need to start doing it during WNBA games as well.

Newest symptom of Trump Derangement Syndrome: an elementary school librarian in Massachusetts rejected a gift to the children of a set of Dr. Seuss books from the First Lady, then went on a self-righteous rant, not only attacking Trump but also attacking Dr. Seuss, claiming his books are “cliché” and “steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes.”

Dr. Seuss taught us all that:

"A person’s a person,

no matter how small.”

He just didn’t know

how small some folks could grow.

Price's private air travel

September 29, 2017

What a little sunlight will do: after the approximately $1 million tab for Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price’s charter and military jet travel hit the news, and President Trump made it clear that he was “not happy,” Price announced that he will pay the cost of his private jet travel. Price released a statement promising, “The taxpayers won’t pay a dime for my seat on those planes.”

Admittedly, as someone who's spent about as much time on planes as Sully Sullenberger, I sympathize with Price. Between the slow, handsy airport security and the airlines turning jets into flying sardine cans that squeeze every passenger and every nickel, flying has degenerated from an exciting adventure to an iron maiden with beverage service.

Incidentally, the press recently tried to gin up a similar scandal involving Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. But that crashed and burned when it was revealed that DeVos, who is part of the family that founded Amway, not only covers all her travel expenses, she’s not even taking a salary for the job. That’s one of the benefits of filling offices with Republican business people instead of Democratic political operatives. The Republicans get rich BEFORE their “public service” careers, not during.

President Trump explains the new GOP tax reform plan, which he insists is targeted to the middle class, not the wealthy. He hopes Democrats will work with him on it.
