I didn’t want him to settle either, I wanted admission of guilt and restitution paid to the victims. This settlement is similar to all the settlements every big bank has agreed to, pay off the victims while you get to remain in the clear without admitting any bad behavior. I hope this story remains front […]


We should not view this presidency as the new normal. I don’t want my lawmakers to validate any divisive, bigoted attitudes in government. I understand the damage six long years of republican obstructionism did to our nation, we could have had better economic outcomes for average households sooner if the Republican Party would have at […]

Each nomination, each appointment is an action, Trump has moved beyond rhetoric and words, his choices clearly point to what he was thinking when he decided to appoint Steve Bannon as chief strategist to the White House. Senator Sessions as Attorney General would put our Civil Rights progress in even more jeopardy than it has […]

I am living with metastasized squamous cell esophageal carcinoma, I just had head surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from my skull. My entire medical team; my neurosurgeons, my medical oncologists, my radiologists and my research team are in mourning over the results of the election. They are beyond concerned for all their patients who […]

We worship the ideal of land of the free, so we should put our actions behind it. The worst legacy of 9/11 was the fear we allowed to rule us, it continues to be a cancer eating us from the inside out. It helped lead to a Trump presidency, how wretched is that? We are […]

I sincerely hope the Democratic Party will […]

I know President Obama was working furiously to put measures in place to protect Planned Parenthood, I hope his measures hold up against the hammer Trump’s administration will bring to bear against women reproductive services. Roe v Wade has been the law of the land since the early 1970’s, I don’t think we will see […]

Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote by a large margin won’t change the outcome of the election, but it does deny the Trump presidency a meaningful mandate. His electoral college wins are by very slim margins in the Rust Belt states and third party candidates did pull crucial votes away from Clinton, let us not […]

It should be obvious to everyone that we are now headed back to epic financial deregulation, tax cutting and socialization of economic losses while Wall Street benefits from the privatization of the public good. Donald Trump was never interested in making middle America’s economic lives better, his economic blueprint was proof positive of that, if […]

I have previously written about the short shrift “adults” have given to the millennials, accusing them of being entitled, spoiled and out of touch. I strongly believe it is the very opposite, millennials came out and voted for the future, instead, it was the most selfish generation, the Baby Boomer generation, that betrayed our nation’s […]
