Budget? What Budget?

Isn't it great how the Senate can just adjourn without even considering the creation of a budget?  Over 900 days (approaching three years) and no budget.  Yet, failing to do his job does not prevent Harry Reid and the rest of the Senators from collecting a handsome paycheck, great benefits and a nice retirement plan.  All of these perks -- without the hassle of a budget.

Whether you like it or not, the House has created a budget for consideration.  The problem is that it won't get considered, debated or voted up or down by the Senate -as long as Harry Reid has anything to do with it.  Why is this?  Is it the Tea Party, the G.O.P. in general?  Space aliens?  Why is the Senate allowed to vacation without having done its job?  Americans have every right to be angry about this.  I know I am.

Frankly, in my opinion, Harry Reid should resign or be impeached for being ineffective, childish and a liability to the entire country.  Shame on you, Senator.  In my opinion, you and those like you give our government a bad name.  It's time to get some people in Washington who will work together to help straighten out this mess we're in and actually earn their paycheck.

Treason or Patriotism?

Many years ago, the Democrats couldn't wait to get all of the facts surrounding Watergate out in the public eye. The Washington Post has been celebrated as a bastion of the free press recently in a movie (which we have yet to see, but plan to).


Now, the idea of releasing a memo that may indicate wrong-doing on the part of the FBI and DOJ is hailed as treasonous by some who would prefer the secrets remain secrets. I have seen or heard of nothing in the recently released memo that would appear to compromise national security -- have you?

Hate Speech

The amount of vitriol directed at President Trump seems to be unprecedented. At least, that is what those on the right seem to think. Of course, I remember plenty of criticism and hate speech hurled at President Obama during his time in office, as well. I don't think I really need to mention President George W. Bush, do I?

There has never been (in my lifetime) such a level of animosity between opposing viewpoints as I see in today's America. Democrats hurl murderous accusations against the Republicans for their healthcare proposals and those of a conservative view sling accusations of incompetence and hypocrisy back at them. Of course, either side is generally pretty good at documenting their accusations with freshly spun 'facts.'

No matter where you fit into the political spectrum, it is important to note that such contention is counter-productive. Whenever people react at the behest of their emotions, clear-headed and rational decisions are nowhere to be found. Moreo…

Comey Testimony

It's been a while since I have seen the kind of hype that there has been around having Director Comey testify in front of the Senate today. It seems worse than Watergate! There also seems to be no evidence thus far except for of the here-say variety .

No less than 5 times did he call President Trump (or his administration) a liar. Aside from what that does to the office of the President, it takes away from getting things done that so desperately need to get done. Now, please don't misunderstand, if there has been serious wrongdoing on the part of the Trump administration, then they need to be called out on it. We have already recently had 8 years of "anything-but-transparency" in Washington.

Reading the New York Times would lead one to the conclusion that this was a bad day for the Trump administration. I'm not so sure of that. I'm not huge fan of the President, but have to say that I did not hear anything qualifying as evidence to bring about impeachment pro…
