Thoughts on Super Tuesday

I have a few thoughts about Super Tuesday (regarding events before, during, and after it), as well as a question from a listener.

Imagine touting the benefits of unionization to your audience, but when your employees want to unionize, you get upset. Teachable moment?

Next stop on the slippery slope

“Just because same-sex marriage is legal doesn’t mean that other changes will be made, like polygamy!” That’s what they told us. And yet we keep slipping down that slope.

Democrats say the dardest things! Sometimes they’re funny and sometimes, well, let’s just say they’d never let a Republican get away with saying that.

The app that napped

We might still not have 100% of the votes counted in the Iowa Caucus, and the chairman of the DNC is calling for a re-canvassing of the results. What a nightmare that has application in other areas of government.

With the impeachment of Donald Trump behind us, I finally have some thoughts about it.

And Hillary Clinton is getting sued…by another Democrat. Get out the popcorn!

Who wrote those beloved Christmas songs?

As long as Democrats keep preaching socialized medicine (as most of their candidates for President are doing), I’ll keep highlighting how it’s failing. This time out, a new report showing the same old thing.

Boris Johnson and the conservative Tories in the UK had an historic win in Parliamentary elections. Brexit is happening. And, of course, like here, the Left over there is in #Resistance mode.

And who wrote those beloved Christmas songs you hear this time of year? The answer might surprise you.

Whistleblower hits close to home?

The whistleblower has been fired! That darn Donald Trump; how could he? No, not that whistleblower. This one was fired by those protecting the identity and job of the other one. Ironic.

If the Senate has to take up the impeachment trial this year or early next, this could cause an awkward situation for some Democrats running for President.

Richard Dawkins, noted atheist, is changing his mind about Christianity, or at least about how the idea of a belief in God changes behavior. He’s not converting, but he’s seeing how the lack of such belief (that is, how human nature on its own) doesn’t seem to work as well.

Has someone taken Pat’s place?

Pat Robertson has suggested that some natural disasters are God’s wrath for various sins. Well, with the arrival of hurricanes Harvey and Irma, he’s making those pronouncements again.

Or is he? Listen and see if you recognize who it is.

James Comey exonerated Hillary Clinton of any prosecution over her private email server.  But was the fix in months before the press conference when he officially announced that? Yup.

Republican Karen Handel won the Georgia 6th district runoff

The runoff for the Georgia US House of Representatives 6th district was a nationally watched race. As with a few other races since President Trump was elected, this was painted as a referendum on him as much (or perhaps more) as it was about local issues.

As it turned out, Republican Karen Handel won with a 4% margin over the (well-financed) Democrat John Ossoff. Here are my thoughts.

Here’s my reaction from this morning on the win by Republican Karen Handel in the Georgia 6th district special election. This is a live video I recorded on the Facebook group this morning.

I’ll talk about this on the next podcast episode as well.

 

Is *every* Republican a Nazi? Really?

I’m back to 3 topics this episode, and all, in some way, semi-sorta-related to the recent, peaceful transfer of power in the United States. I talk about the Left running out of adjectives for Donald Trump, given how they’ve misused those adjectives over the decades. I talk about how the outgoing President Obama commuted the sentence of someone who gave Wikileaks a huge treasure trove. And I talk about the closing of a prominent charity, and why it might be closing.

And don’t forget, I want to hear you talk about what you think. Comment here, or look at the sidebar for other ways to get in touch.
