“Google, Define Circumstantial”

“Pointing indirectly toward someone’s guilt but not conclusively proving it.” For weeks, Democrats built an impeachment case against President Trump.  First, it was quid pro quo, then bribery.  No one had the smoking gun, a tape recording or a transcript saying “this for that”.  The House Intelligence Committee interviewed any Trump hater in government still breathing and the closest they could get to evidence of … Continue reading “Google, Define Circumstantial”

Quid Pro Quo

“Quid pro quo is a Latin phrase used in English to mean an exchange of goods or services, in which one transfer is contingent upon the other; “a favor for a favor”. Phrases with similar meanings include: “give and take”, “tit for tat”, “you scratch my back, and I’ll scratch yours”, and “one hand washes the other”.” (Wikipedia, 2020) It’s likely a phrase you’ve heard … Continue reading Quid Pro Quo

Orange Man Bad

Trump is a racist Have you ever heard of the Ellis Island Award?  As defined by NECO (National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations), “The Ellis Island Medals of Honor embody the spirit of America in their celebration of patriotism, tolerance, brotherhood and diversity. They recognize individuals who have made it their mission to share with those less fortunate their wealth of knowledge, indomitable courage, boundless compassion, unique talents … Continue reading Orange Man Bad

Amendment #2

The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America: “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” You’ve probably heard of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution.  The NRA and other groups constantly bring the Amendment into the limelight.  It’s the pillar of … Continue reading Amendment #2

Civility

Social media and the internet have made so many people so much louder.  Cardi B is basically teaching young girls that if you just yell louder you win the argument, regardless of merit.  The Game calls Tomi Lahren a “microwaved carrot” and somehow that means he wins the debate about 21 Savage illegally staying in the US after his work visa expired.  On the internet, … Continue reading Civility

The Truth About Trump

Opponents of the President have seemingly exposed themselves to the remaining Americans with brain cells swimming around in our heads.  They’ve gone from 2 years of “collusion” straight to delusion.  Rachel Maddow (MSNBC), everyone’s favorite meltdown artist from Election Day 2016 (I’ll leave this here…), has doubled down on collusion.  After her vehement faith in the almost 2 year long Special Counsel led by Robert … Continue reading The Truth About Trump

John McCain

The Maverick is gone, but with news headlines across the nation mentioning a continued feud with President Trump, you’d think he was still the Senator from Arizona. Let’s agree to remember John as the war hero he was.  Let’s try to forget that time President Trump diminished that during the campaign – “I like people who weren’t captured.”  A stupid comeback and a gaff that … Continue reading John McCain

Morality

Racism is alive and well in America.  From White Nationalist rallies in the Carolinas to race-baiters across the country, we’re at each other’s throats over the difference of the shade of brown in our epidermis.  We have enough racism without murderers in Dodge Challengers running over black people.  We have enough racism without Jussie Smollett making stuff up to try to start a race war.  … Continue reading Morality

Immigration

Let’s talk about it. There is a difference between legal immigration and illegal immigration.  Legal immigrants go through a long process to be granted either temporary or permanent residence in the United States.  Illegal immigrants either outstay those temporary statuses, or skip the process altogether and cross the border illegally. Because much of this issue encompasses our southern border, it’s labeled “racist” if you believe … Continue reading Immigration
