Steppenwolf

Air Force brat. My dad was shepherd to a bunch of B-52's; the GI's called that place "20 Minutes From Armageddon;" because a missile launched in East Germany would pop over our heads twenty minutes later. That put me in some of the best schools anywhere. I wrote in the Press Office of a powerful, charismatic Midwestern Governor. I dabble in graphic arts. My 50+ entertainment sites get a few million visits, and I have stopped counting the fans, likes, and shares, per year. I've rambled the world, hitched around the continent (counter-clockwise). Climbed a couple of teeners, been to a couple of thousand rock, blues, and jazz concerts. I was at a free concert on Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, CA with about 350,000 freaks and hippies; and other festivals. I won a writing contest when I was six. It was a Poe-like horror story taken from an account of a mining disaster. I had already been reading Edgar Allan Poe (which may explain a lot). I could read before I could talk. I implemented some of the first client/server, TCP-IP networks (the Internet) at many of the world's largest corporations. I know a half-dozen programming languages, and have implemented and administered many network operating systems. Right now I build ebikes, and lithium batteries from scratch. I was taught that race and ethnicity don't set us apart. I think that the best thing that could happen in this country would be if a woman were to be elected President of the United States. I admire President Obama more than any man in history, save one.

The Eclipse Of Democracy

The problem isn't just that Trump is committing crimes in public. it's that he is being allowed to manipulate the workings of the United States Senate in plain sight. Worse yet and a crime, he is interfering in a Constitutional proceeding, impeachment.

A Simple Case Of Treason

Trump has a fundamental disrespect for the American government. The "phony" Constitution, he said. He reeks of it: a cheap gangster who hates everything that we stand for. It's the most obvious salient about Trump. He hates the United States of America.

DeVos Blames Children For Disastrous Test Scores

Betsy doesn't really give a damn about our children or their education. The only thing that she cares about is anti-Democratic politics, and dismantling the Constitution. More than any other cause, I truly believe that Betsy Devos is the problem; she and all the others who put politics before everything including children's education.

“Human Scum”

Trump called a group (anyone who disagrees with his immoral, anti-Democratic policies and actions) "human scum." That's the sort of inflammatory rhetoric that gets people killed.

GOP Panics – Does Trump/Giuliani Election Meddling Go Back to 2016?

If Rudy Giuliani's criminal associates, and troops enlisted from the ranks of Russian and Ukrainian cyber-terrorists, were conspiring to fix the U.S. Presidential Election long before the 2016 election itself, then Giuliani has known all this time.

Marijuana Legalization Is A Bust!

harsh penalties still exist in the first states to legalize! Washington State and Colorado, and all the 11 "legal" states have a mish-mash of confusing and conflicting laws, federal and state, that cause tremendous suffering.

Stop, Thief!!! The Importance Of The Emoluments Clause

The most serious abuses of power that the "Founders and Framers" could imagine were to receive a title (which always had a monetary and political value), or for there to be even a hint that money was exchanged for influence.

Abuse Of Power: Trump Orders State Department Diplomats To Work With Giuliani

It's not even about, "winning," with Trump and his followers now; it's about cheating and getting away with it.

Why William Barr Says The President Has Absolute Immunity

Barr claims that because of an unreviewed internal department memo, no President can be prosecuted for any crime but fails to offer a suggestion about how to "interfere" with a pattern of criminality that embeds itself and cyclically worsens.

Trump And Erdogan Meet Again, Why Indeed?

Erdogan has been working for several years, and through several very involved constitutional steps, to develop an, "Executive Presidency." That is exactly what Trump is after.
