In the betting world, a winning wager involves selecting the horse that you think will finish the race in first place. The Republicans won US Government control with a majority rule in Congress and The White House.

With a place bet, you win if your selected horse finishes the race in either first or second place. The GOP put all their money on what they thought would be a winning horse with a well-known name and a face.

Twitter Says Nyet


The big bird has finally put its foot down by suspending kicking many in the bots. Therefore, the followers you are losing were never real people. They were bots and @Twitter decided enough was enough.

You are not being censored. You were engaging with hostile foreign agents. Twitter says it is taking new steps to cripple spam bots on its platform, including changes to Twitter and TweetDeck to limit coordinated posts across multiple accounts

Con men, women and dumb conservative Twitter users are lashing out after followers vanish

People Power Possibilities


Students from Florida's Stoneman Douglas High School are lobbying lawmakers in their state capital for a showdown over gun control.

In the wake of the deadly shooting that claimed 17 lives at the Parkland, Fla., school, busloads of survivors arrived in Tallahassee for a rally and meetings with lawmakers.

The Russians Are Here


When I was a kid in Cuba, Russia took over with Castro's government support, his admiration, and assistance. Then I was welcomed with open arms in this great nation and watched "The Russians are Coming" - They're already here and making themselves at home.

The fear is not that they're already in the US, but they are working while our administration appears to give the all clear. When has the president said anything negative about Vladimir Putin or The Russians?

Campus Free Speech


As students become more vocal because they feel powerless and overlooked, free speech issues continue to heat up at schools throughout America and they will not be silenced.

The US Constitution First Amendment protects speech no matter how offensive its content. Restrictions on a speech by public colleges and universities amount to government censorship, in violation of the Constitution.

These restrictions deprive students of their right to invite speech they wish to hear, debate speech with which they disagree, and protest speech they find bigoted or offensive.

Ignore Him America


We’re strong enough to ignore his Tweets.

Ignore him because he only cares about Vladimir.

Ignore him because he’s so bad even on his Bigly good days.

Ignore him because all he's doing is talking and nothing has come of it.

Ignore him can’t do his job, so good luck getting him to do anything else.

Ignore him because this is not a golf game and Tweets shows a sense of insecurity in him.

Ignore him because you need someone who is going to make you better not make your life worse.

Real Chief Consoler


2018 is a beautiful year in the neighborhood for fans of Mr. Rogers. Beloved children's show Mister Rogers' Neighborhood celebrates its 50th anniversary on PBS.

Fred McFeely Rogers was a loved American TV personality, a musician, puppeteer, writer, producer, a Presbyterian minister, and a real chief consoler. He gave an expression of care every day to each child.

President's Fray


Have we lost his signal just in time for this day? Who uses Twitter to spread fake information playing down the impact of a serious national delay? Look at the facts. Could it be more clear that he more interested in covering his rear than protecting all Americans here?

Who promises much and delivers little, and who is turning his back while America is under attack? Who's almost 73, but not grown up enough to show interest in you and me?

The Hate Boat


Americans are learning that a rotten apple can ruin the bunch. A bad individual among many good ones, and especially one will spoils the group.

This expression is a shortening of the proverb a rotten apple spoils the barrel, coming from a 14th-century Latin proverb translated as "The rotten apple injures its neighbors." The allusion in this idiom is to the spread of mold or other diseases from one apple to the rest. In English, the first recorded use was in Benjamin Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanack back in 1736.

And it still applies today in politics as in one person whose own words and actions negatively impact an entire group of people, a nation and everywhere, including the high seas. This was no love boat, but a hated cruise from hell.
