America Dishonored

I had never thought about ancestry much until Trump was elected. His fanning the flames of hate for the “other” reminded me that my family goes “way back” in America. Far from that being a matter of pride being a white American is one of shame. I was thinking about this as I made a video talking about Trump while standing in a small military graveyard. I was also thinking about my family beginning with my son John who served in the US Marines and was deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq in 2003 and … [Read more...]

Trump Is President Because Too Many On the Left Put Faith in Late Night Comedy Rather Than Policy: Call This the Daily Show Epic Fail
