I think the first question that needs to be answered, as we consider reopening our economy, is what does a reopening look like? Do we just declare the Covid-19 threat null and void, tear down all the precautionary barriers in businesses and tell everybody to have at it? Do we take the measured approach, picking and choosing which businesses are now suddenly safe to open, as well as those that should say closed until further notice? One thing is for… Read more

Donald Trump has only served a single term, but it feels like a lifetime. That would be a lifetime of incompetence, ignorance, corruption, ugliness, indecency, and the self-absorbed arrogance that you can expect from any spoiled, entitled, thin-skinned narcissist. We need a break from this nightmare. With the nation reeling from the Covid-19 pandemic, we saw a glimmer of what it was to have a reasoned and compassionate leader speak. On Saturday, former President George W. Bush released a three… Read more

It’s happening. On Tuesday evening, Michigan Representative Justin Amash announced that he was forming an exploratory committee to seek the Libertarian Party nomination for the presidency. So what does that mean? It means he’s running for President of the United States in 2020. Yes, this seems late in the game. The Democrats have pretty much wrapped up their primary season, with former Vice President Joe Biden walking away with the nomination. That part was expected. Of course, the GOP has… Read more

Lysol colonics. The next big thing? I’m going to say that’s highly unlikely, but in these crazy, post-common sense days, never say never. There’s so much going on with the coronavirus pandemic. From sheltering in place to the shut down of businesses, it has become quite clear that we are in unprecedented days. It is equally clear that this has come upon us when we have the most unprepared, unqualified, and inept of political leaders to ever maintain occupancy in… Read more

I’m going to start this piece by dispelling a myth about myself, in order to approach a growing debate across our nation. Anyone with the vaguest familiarity with my work over the last four to five years knows I am vehemently opposed to Donald Trump and his presidency. I am aghast at how easily this incompetent charlatan overtook the party I once called my home. I based my objections to his candidacy on the simple principles of conservatism, driven by… Read more

Even in the midst of a global pandemic there is no end to Donald Trump’s petty, self-absorbed vindictiveness. Let us begin by noting, without question, that Trump has handled the Covid-19 outbreak with the same skill and savvy he exhibits in his business. This is where I remind everyone that he’s filed for bankruptcy at least five times and everything from Trump steaks to Trump vodka has proven to be a failure. If there is anyone less qualified to be… Read more

This is how our republic dies: Not by foreign invaders creeping onto our shores and over our borders in the dead of night. It doesn’t happen through an election where the other side wins. No, it happens when those in office no longer fear the will of our citizens. Cultish mindsets and tribal allegiances can allow dangerous autocrats to wreak havoc on the precarious balance of  liberty. Our freedoms are taken through tiny bites. Rarely does it happen all at… Read more

At the time of this writing, it seems as if the whole world is upside down. We are in the grips of a pandemic. The coronavirus – or Covid-19 – has forced us all to adjust our habits, as far as dining out, work, or social interactions, in general. Some experts are comparing it to the “Spanish flu” pandemic of 1918. That particular nightmare raged on from January 1918 to December 1920, infecting approximately 500 million people, with around 50,000,000… Read more

A wise man once said, “Everything Trump touches dies.” With a  hat tip to the ever-eloquent Mr. Rick Wilson, I’m going to take on the painful task of laying out the next profile in cowardice. When I decided to begin this series, I knew I was biting off a lot. So many have fallen under the weight of partisanship. So many in the Republican party have sold their souls to the curse of Trumpism. It’s not easy to admit that… Read more

The depravity that has overtaken the American church body no longer shocks me, I’m sad to say. I’ll toss in here that the decline to lukewarm status didn’t begin with Donald Trump, lest anyone get the impression that this is going to be another piece chastising evangelicals for their support of the unrepentant adulterer and con artist. No, the decline began years ago, when disreputable frauds saw that there was power in the Word  and sought to use that power… Read more
