“Sing Me A Song”
Where would I start? So many to choose from... I have a very eclectic taste in music; it ranges from Abba to Whodini and beyond. I can go for some of that old time religious and on to some of that zydeco music in a heartbeat. My mood determines what I listen to, and very few things have I...
If I Were President, I Could Be Charged With Obstructing Congress With One Act

Yep, that did it! I just obstructed Congress. Maybe just for good measure, I'll cut a few of their pet projects out of my budget next year, How's that for Obstructing? Maybe I'll go on TV and tell everyone to call their Congressman to tell them NOT to vote for something I don't like. Maybe...
Schiff Shifts To Telling Lies In Senate

“Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., said, "No Republican senator has been told that. What he has proven to all of us is, he is capable of falsehoods and...”
It was bad enough when Schiff lied in his personal witch hunt headquarters in the House Intelligence Committee Chambers in the House of Representatives, in the press, and now in the Senate too, but here is the one that probably will be the most damning to his cause of all: (Link) The...
Next Step After The Impeachment Trial May Be An Expungement And Having The Impeachment Stricken From The Record
By: Citizen Kane-473667 • Op/Ed • 371 Comments • 10 Likes • 3 years ago
It is almost a foregone conclusion that the Senate will acquit Trump of the Impeachment handed down by the House, and well it should considering the entire thing has been based on hearsay evidence and "feelings". I certainly wouldn't want a Justice System to decide an individuals freedom, or...

“They count on you not voting...”
Is it possible to vote our way out of this mess in State Legislatures, Congress, and the White House? Seriously, can it be done??? I think we could, but it would require everyone to vote for the people who actually represent the values they hold dearest. BUT!!! It would also require that...

“Hope you packed a lunch!”
As a preface, I'm going to let everyone know right off the bat, you are more than welcome to disagree! Trump: The Man! Okay, what can I really say here that we haven't all heard before. Depending on which way and how hard you lean on the Political Spectrum, he is anything from a narcissistic...

Seriously asking. You see the same characters getting comments deleted, sometimes almost every single one they made, and yet there they are--still posting. So since I would really love to give as well as I get, just exactly how many "tickets" can I get in a day, a week, or a month, and still be...

“Lettuce have some pun!”
Okay, I'm tired of all the hash slinging on the Politics and News page so I thought this would be a fun little contest. The rules are simple: Your pun MUST NOT be about Politics or Politicians. They aren't very punny anyway! FOOD and DRINK will get special merit because they can be so much...

“One of the great conundrums of the American political scene is why the poorer states, colloquially known as "red" states, tend to vote Republican...”
