If you've ever been to any of the cities graced with a Trump hotel, casino, resort, etcetera – you know that The Donald splashes his name in giant, gaudy letters across every structure he owns, preferably in gold.
Here's a question for our Trumpestuous President and his Trumpeteers in Congress: "Why are you even considering giving more tax breaks to corporate giants?"
Noting that the US military was developing armed, autonomous robots to serve as battleground soldiers in our wars, a 2015 New York Times article asked an important question: "Can they learn to make moral choices?"
In June, our Tweety Bird president tweeted this message to members of the US Army: "Proud to be your commander-in-chief." Actually, Trump is only the delegator-in-chief, having passed to subordinates a president's most solemn duty of guiding our nation's war policies – including what wars to be in.
Good news, people – at last, congressional Democrats have gotten a clue, grown some spine, and are beginning to act like... well, like Democrats!
So, President Trump makes what was to be a condolence phone call to the young widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, one of four American soldiers killed on a military patrol in Niger – and all of a sudden, the White House explodes in yet another political conflagration and a new burst of presidential lies.
There's a robot in your future. Not one of those cute little labor-saving automatons – like a "Roomba" vacuum cleaner.
The governors of many states are boldly stepping forward these days to stop grassroots democracy.
The self-described “Geniuses of Wall Street” are being stupid. Again.
Betsy DeVos and her hubby, Dick, are lucky enough to have inherited a big chunk of the multibillion-dollar fortune that Daddy DeVos amassed through his shady Amway corporation. But what they've done with their Amway money is certainly not the American Way.
You know what's wrong with American politics? It's that there just aren't enough ways for giant corporations and mega-rich political donors to funnel their big bucks into our elections and buy our government.
Rather than a health care system, our country's leaders have kept us shackled to a "corporate care" system, allowing insurance giants, drug company gougers, hospital chains, and other profiteers to ration our care based on whether a family can pay whatever outrageous price the corporations demands to maintain their exorbitant profits.
News flash: Republican congressional leaders have come up with yet another grand scheme to fix America's health care system. So, look out – because when they say "fix," they mean it in the same sense as your veterinarian uses the word!
America is Number 1 in health care! But before erupting in proud chants of USA! USA! – note that we're only Number 1 in health care spending. Ouch.
Want good quality, lower-cost health care for your family – and (what the hell, let's think big here) for every man, woman, and (especially) every child in our society?
How much of your money does Donald Trump want to pour into his xenophobic fantasy of erecting an impenetrable wall on our Mexican border?
Donald Trump loves it when crowds at his raucous right-wing rallies stand and chant in red-faced fury: "Build that wall! Build that wall!"
One of the lucky things about being rich is that you automatically become handsome, your jokes are hilarious, and politicians treat you with fawning deference.
Wall Street analysts tell us that Amazon's $14 billion buy-out of Whole Foods Market is not only a win-win for both of them - but also for consumers, for Amazon intends to lower the organic grocer's prices.
President Trump might have dodged military service in his youth, but he certainly is militaristic – he is bellicose, likes to issue commands, and is constantly firing off militant tweets at anyone he perceives to be an enemy (which seems to include everyone who dares to disagree with him).
While our present President's moral character seems stuck somewhere between boorish and brutish, it's only fair to note that he also has an aesthetic dimension.
Like rose blossoms, a politician's promises can be beautiful when they burst into full, glorious bloom - only to see them fade over time and, petal by petal, fall away.
I hate to say this, but I'm starting to feel sorry for Donald Trump. He's only been in office for half a year, and already he's running out of Americans to attack.
These are hard times for America's gold miners, who're scrambling to get ahead, but seeing their pay dropping. Take Bob Mercer, who's been a top miner for years, but last year even Bob was down. He pulled in only $125 million in pay. Can you feel Bob's pain?
We know that millions of American families lost their homes after Wall Street's 2007 financial crash... but where did all those houses go?
