Trump Should Close NATO Membership Rolls

Trump Should Close NATO Membership Rolls U.S.A. –-( When Donald Trump meets with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg today, the president should give him a direct message: The roster of NATO membership is closed. For good. The United States will not hand out any more war guarantees to fight Russia to secure borders deep in Eastern Europe, when our own southern border is bleeding profusely. And no one needs to hear this message more than Stoltenberg. In Tblisi, Georgia, on Ma...

The more things change, the more..........

The more things change, the more they remain the same. Yesterday during rest breaks from re-modeling my tractor/tool shed, I read a long online history of the U.S. between 1945 and 1955 by a former assistant history professor at West Point. Things were very similar then to today. A dynamic senator named Joe McCarthy began warning of the rise of socialism and communism in America, and he was very, very vocal. The current president didn't like very much, him but was not eager to fight him. Pr...

Truman's wants to reduce single-use plastics in the household cleaner industry

The household cleaning aisle at the store features dozens of spray cleaners for different surfaces, and the ingredient lists are a mile long with chemical names that are impossible to pronounce. While many of those cleaners are effective for getting rid of dirt and germs, some of the chemicals inside are environmental hazards. Then, there are the plastic bottles, which get thrown into the trash once they are empty, adding to the plastic pollution problem. As the marketplace shifts to products w...

Is Diversity a Root Cause of Dual Loyalty?

Opinion Is Diversity a Root Cause of Dual Loyalty?   USA – -( “We can't be divided by race, religion, by tribe. We're defined by those enduring principles in the Constitution, even though we don't necessarily all know them.” So Joe Biden told the firefighters union recently. But does Joe really believe that? Or does that not sound more like a plea, a wistful hope, rather than a deep conviction? For Biden surely had in mind the debate that exploded in the House Democratic caucu...

‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ at 15: Don’t Let Your Memory of This Movie Get Deleted

“Random thoughts for Valentine’s Day 2004. Today is a holiday invented by greeting card companies to make people feel like crap.” Those are the first spoken lines in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Jim Carrey’s voice is laced with melancholy and wry humor as he lets us in on the internal monologue of his character, Joel Barish. It’s a far cry from the sassy voice that launched him to movie stardom ten years earlier in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Yet there’s a whole contingent of movie...

Opinion Nixon, leading a minority Republican Party, had a compelling argument: “If the Democrats cannot unite their own party, how can they unite the nation?” USA – -( “Politics stops at the water's edge” was a tradition that, not so long ago, was observed by both parties, particularly when a president was abroad, speaking for the nation. The tradition was enunciated by Sen. Arthur Vandenberg of Michigan in 1947, as many of the Republicans in the 80th Congress moved to back Tru...

Why Donald Trump is set to declare a national emergency to build his wall - and what will happen next

Donald Trump is poised to declare a national emergency in an attempt to fund his US-Mexico border wall without congressional approval. The White House said the US president would sign a spending bill that would avert a government shutdown, but which only provides $1.375 billion for border barriers or fencing - far from the $5.7 billion Mr Trump wants. "President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action - including a nation...

No constitutional stalemate in a Congress-president tiff

Most observers of the American political scene today would say that the president wants a border wall and the Congress does not. That, however, is quite inaccurate. “The Congress” is not Speaker Nancy Pelosi, nor any single member of the House or Senate. Constitutionally, the Congress expresses its will only one way: by passing legislation. It has no authority to issue orders having the effect of law, as the president does with executive orders, or the Judicial Branch does by issuing injunctions...

Party of the people? Or the oligarchs?

The Trump uprising, with a renegade capitalist serving as the tribune of the forgotten working class, appears headed toward an inevitable denouement. Trump’s intemperance, jingoism and lack of political skills have undermined the GOP’s ability to reach beyond its base in the South, the exurbs and parts of middle America. The Democrats should be able to easily overcome this collapsing regime, much as has occurred in California when the GOP managed to alienate immigrants in an ever more diverse st...
