It's President Biden's Problem Now.
Author: Raine    Date: 03/18/2021 13:01:50

President Biden, when he took office, also took on a lot of problems the former guy created. Among the most urgent was our immigration system. It was in bad shape before 2017, but in the ensuing four years, it was badly broken, nearly dismantled, and destroyed by the executive branch.

Time to Trickle Up
Author: BobR    Date: 03/17/2021 12:42:59

During the 1980 presidential campaign, the Republicans were looking for a candidate to rob President Carter of a 2nd term. Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush were the front-runners. One of Reagan's proposals was an idea where tax cuts for the rich would "trickle down" to help the middle class and poor by "creating jobs". It was initially referred to as "supply-side economics". Bush referred to it as "voodoo economics", and it came to be known as "Reaganomics" - as well it should be.

Reagan won, and the Republicans have been beating this dead horse ever since.

A Little More Pork Please
Author: Raine    Date: 03/15/2021 13:04:32

The American Rescue Plan (ARP) has bipartisan support all throughout the country. Large bipartisan support. It's almost inconceivable in this day and age when we have such a severe polarization of elected officials. Take a look:

Good Morning.

By 9:15 this morning, I'll be on the road to the gates of Cape Cod - Plymouth, MA.

Freedom Friday
Author: wickedpam    Date: 03/12/2021 13:58:38

May 1st! Everyone will be eligible for vaccination on May 1st!

That's just 50 days or 49 sleeps away. There is a tentative end in sight and its not a bullet train, although with idiots opening up states too soon it could be a steam locomotive, but at best it might be just one of those comical hand cars if we're lucky.

They Were Warned
Author: Raine    Date: 03/11/2021 14:01:04

In the coming days, weeks and months we will be learning more about the American Relief Plan that was voted on yesterday and will be sent over to the White House signing by President Biden today. There is a LOT of good stuff in it that many people (including myself) are not yet made aware of.

Our Most Precious Right
Author: BobR    Date: 03/10/2021 14:15:25

Ask any person if they believe our rights are under attack. The gun-lover will say "yes", the 2nd Amendment is always under attack. The firebrand will say freedom of speech is under attack. The reporter arrested trying to cover a political demonstration will say freedom of the press is under attack. These rights were enumerated in the Bill of Rights, but the most precious right, the one that guarantees all of these other rights is the one most vulnerable to malfeasance:

the Right to Vote.

To Veil or Not to veil, Sur
Author: Raine    Date: 03/08/2021 14:02:13

"If you see something say something" has become an oft-used trope since that day nearly 20 years ago. There was a lot to see in the days before that egregious insurrection on January 6. Reporters were writing about it, people we seeing it all over social media. Something was going to happen. We regular folk just didn't know exactly what.
