The Boy Who Cried Wolf


Do you recall a story of the boy who cried wolf? What about the 71-year-old toddler who accuses adversaries of treason?

We have growing cancer when a politician tells his countrymen to set aside differences during an unusually long speech while insisting on unity, but a week later turns on those who did not applaud his empty promises by calling them un-American and maybe even “treasonous” for failing to clap.



With a full schedule of political and international travel for the rest of this year, Vice President Pence is going to stay away from the job and managing to avoid some of the biggest controversies of a #TrumpPence administration.

The rest of America may do the same, as they may be getting ready for Super Sick Monday. More than 15 million Americans may call in sick the day after the Super Bowl.

Last year some 16.5 million Americans called in sick because of the game, so if you’re planning to join the calling-out sick group, here are some of the best excuses.

Chaotic Confusion


Where does the buck really stop, folks? The Dow Jones industrials keep falling more than 1,150 points, making it the largest single-day point drop, erasing its gains for the year. What is @POTUS saying?

Congress Is Sleepwalking Toward Its Next Crisis

Bait and Switch


Whatever happened to Mexico will pay for the wall... I'll drain the swamp and so many other so-called bait and switch moves... Has he hired the best people? Are these actions intended to build up or to destroy?

There have been massive firings from people chosen by @POTUS along with an amazing wave of Congressmen who are choosing to retire. Additionally, there is a lack of stability as one day its one thing and the next moment it is another. It appears that under the present administration, being a public servant is a not an easy job, and it’s not likely to improve.

Experience Wins?


There is no denying that experience, knowledge or mastery of any event or subject matter gained through involvement in or exposure to it is most valuable. Relying on an experienced individual is always a great bet.
