More than halfway…..

Through the year and the assault on Democracy continues. It’s enough to make one take up hard drinking (or keep doing so): While looking for some of this:

The Method in their Madness

The US Senate unveiled it’s latest version of the abomination that is known as the Health Care bill. Initial review says it still sucks with a capital “S”.  It does not ensure that insurers will cover everyone with essential health benefits-in fact it adopts the Cruz amendment, which is a sham designed specifically to allow […]

Credit where credit is due

Long time readers know that this blog is no fan of William Kristol. But when it comes to Trump, he has been steadfast in his opposition. He has not backed down from his firm conviction that he believes, like me, Trump is fundamentally dangerous to the Republic.   One hopes the manifest stupidity of Trumpists […]

Out and about.

Sorry for no posts for the last few days. I had to make a business trip to warmer climes. It was just a short couple of days of meetings and then up (very early) for the return flight to Deutschland. It was hot. Speaking of hot, as I mentioned, back in February, I had the […]

A few traditions need to remain…….

And one of them is beer and babes! Germany still has plenty of this. And, based on my last visit to Japan, the scenery there looks quite nice too.

Lest we forget

Today is the 20th Anniversary of the Great Betrayal. Hong Kong was transferred from its rightful owners to the Chinese. Thus the great betrayal occurred. Why does China want to exert control over Hong Kong? Since the Communist party took power in China in 1949, it has consistently decried the “century of humiliation” that China […]

The signposts on the road to hell.

As I mentioned in the previous post, I am a big fan of Dr. Timothy Snyder’s book, On Tyranny, 20 Lessons from the 20th Century. The book is an easy read-and very much necessary in the age of the Orange Menace. His 20 lessons are coming true before our eyes. The entire list can be […]

The slow slide to the bottom

There is a professor,  a professor named Timothy Snyder from Yale University,  who has done a lot of his historical work on fascist and totalitarian societies. He wrote a book published late last year entitled: It’s good book-and I intend to talk about it soon. As you may remember ( but I have not been […]

While I was out.

He seized his axe, which he had made very sharp, and as the leader of the wolves came on the Tin Woodman swung his arm and chopped the wolf’s head from its body, so that it immediately died.

Drafted back into service

And like a moth to the flame, with Trump proving every day that he was far worse than anyone could have ever imagined, I’ve decided to heed Victor Lazlo’s advice: The last six months have been so utterly crazy, and there are just too many things to say, that I resolved to myself that I […]

Goodbye and farewell

I regret nothing. There seems to be an impression among some people that a Facebook or Twitter account is about what pleases them and what they want to read, rather than the message(s) the owner of these accounts wishes to convey. And that, if those messages are ones that the readers disagree with, it is […]
