Despite the facts, the pleadings, the begging, the mounting numbers of lives being shattered and hospitals bursting at the seams with people clinging to small shreds of life, these are the people who will not be swayed in their various beliefs. That COVID-19 is just like the flu, that the numbers are inflated, that vaccines are only being created to inject us all with "trackers", and that a delusional leader who has always been obsessed with his image first, and the health of his nation second, is correct in demanding loyalty first, common sense second.
As with so many others, I'm having serious difficulty in grasping with how to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
Conquer the enemy that seeks to destroy America. This time, an enemy from within. One that twists and besmirches what the country should be standing for, all in the name of their own ill-gotten gain.
In the wake of Donald Trump being handed his eviction notice from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue by a majority of the landlords, a good slice of America finds itself wandering about the virtual information desert desperately seeking a place go plant their textual flag and continue being recognized as part of the conversation that has [...]
I have always had a great deal of respect for Presidential historian Jon Meacham. Frankly, one of the finest and more erudite commentators on Presidential politics. However, in light of this subterfuge, I will never quite believe all he tells me is true ever again. Neither should you or anyone else. MSNBC did [...]

Republicans have every right to be supremely confident that Donald Trump will be re-elected. I received a note this morning from a staunchly Democratic friend which read, "We got this in the bag". Really? Most of the reputable polls are leaning in favor of Joe Biden. I'm told by friends who are forced to [...]
Until we, as a nation, force ourselves into being more open-minded and refusing to be turned into lemmings by clickbait media, we are truly doomed to fail.
COVID19 is yet again another hard-earned lesson in who we are, who we should avoid, and who we could be if only the stain of political bias had not infected so many souls. Where once there were smart, clear-headed, rational individuals relying on common sense, there now stand, sit for the most part as they bang out laughable commentary on social media, those who we must fear are beyond saving. Certainly, they should be beyond our desire to change.
Let us then swing forward to the present, where athletes of all manner, all sexes, every race and creed, are speaking out over the systemic racism that existed in the days of Ted Williams, and have never truly receded one iota. They are using their forums, ones they have worked for, to seek positive change in America.
