It’s not often that you get a second chance to make a first impression; perhaps no more so than in politics. But with his speech commemorating the 1/6/21 insurrection at the Capitol, Joe Biden reintroduced himself as president to America.

Although there is disagreement about whether Biden’s current policy agenda…

Do it. Do it now. Who cares if DJT supports it. Rid the nation, nay the world, of viral hate. If you watched “60 Minutes” on January 3, you know why.

DJT built his re-election campaign on issues that were meant to divide the American people even more than they already…

Pretty soon, the Trump cult will begin to disperse and maybe even vote significantly Democratic in 2022, and more emphatically in 2024; that is, if electoral democracy survives. If these people could be sucked into a cult so easily, then they can be sucked out of it again fairly easily…
