MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

DRAINING THE SWAMP:  Making America Great Again

We’re off! And the Trump Administration is gaining altitude as we speak.

After considerable initial turbulence The Administration is on its promised way. Once the entire system is staffed and running, things will only improve. It’s clear that we have a President that means what he says, unlike many of his political forebears. Appointees in place are in command of their positions, and Trump is making good on his promises to Make America Great Again. Showing muscle in Syria has made a positive impression on most of the Free World, and the Mother Of All Bombs has impressed the proletariat elsewhere. Getting other nations on board should be easier now, and look for the economy to improve significantly over the next few months (and thenceforth…)

And the opposition has been quelled to some degree by the appointment of a Conservative justice to

HEALTH CARE – PART I

A REAL AFFORDABLE CARE ACT

The Donald promised to reform health care. Don’t look now, but the task is well underway.

How else to explain the virtual collapse of ‘the establishment’ as a non-politician expands his popularity with the ‘deplorables’ who elected him? Those same folks who came out of the woodwork to topple the political establishment by electing a populist who spoke directly to them and for their dissatisfaction with politics as usual?

Yes—the health-care hodge-podge is beginning to come together. Mr. Trump is making good on his promise, and a few others as well. Talk about a third-party movement; it could be under construction: a party that, if carefully cultivated, will change the face of Western civilization.

Believe it or else, the health-care dead-end has taken a right turn. What we’re seeing is a return to real politics not-as-usual. Ignore the media hype and behold discussions over a

DRAINING the SWAMP: PART II

February 28, 2017

The Donald promised to drain the swamp.  Don’t look now, but the task is well underway.

How else to explain the panic in both parties as they seek to determine just who they are and whom they represent?  How else to explain the disarray in long-established(?) political parties, both of which are losing their original purpose?   How else to explain the virtual collapse of ‘the establishment’ as a non-politician expands his popularity of the ‘deplorables’ who elected him? Those same folks who came out of the woodwork to topple the political establishment by electing a populist who spoke directly to them and for their dissatisfaction with politics as usual?

Yes—the swamp has begun to drain; Mr. Trump is making good on this promise, and a few others as well.  Talk about a third-party movement; we now have a democratic party in shambles and a Republican

TRUMP: DRAINING the SWAMP

February 26, 2017

Can TRUMP Drain The Swamp?

ethics in politics?

Unfortunately…

Don’t be so quick to write it off.  Republicans have a  l o n g  history of profound change, in spite of having suffered for it.  Lincoln was assassinated.  So was McKinley.  Reagan came close.  Even Kennedy, far from a hard-line Progressive, suffered the fate.  Meaningful change isn’t done on the cheap.  Or even without great cost.  Don’t cave, Donald…  And watch your back…

Obama?  Change was advertised but not delivered.  Progressivism can’t make it in this world.  Ask the Trump Brigade who stopped the Progressive onslaught, and ushered in promises of draining the swamp.

Yes—the swamp will be drained—at least some of it.  What took so long to build will take more than one man to bring down, even if necessary.  Until term limits become law, the

DONALD TRUMP: An Unusual President?

February 24, 2017

Not if you’re paying attention. President Trump is not a Republican, nor is he a Democrat, because President Trump is not a politician. He owes no allegiance to either party, because neither party elected him. Both parties’ establishments were against his presidency, and remain so. No. Mr. Trump is The President—nothing less.
President Trump is President of the people, elected by the people, just as presidents are supposed to be. What a concept! A President Of The People! Why hadn’t someone thought of this before? Answer: They did. Back in the 18th Century. Just as legislatures were supposed to do their elected duty and then go home, So was the President. Nobody said he had to be a politician; he was just supposed to be The President. Elected by the people: a President Of The People. Nobody said there had to be politicians elected for life. They were supposed to

ETHICAL ISSUES: UNIONS

February 13, 2017

ETHICS, UNIONS, and UNIONIZATION

Betsy DeVos has been confirmed as our next Secretary of Education.  This is one of the most important of the Trump nominations to date.

Our public educational system has been hampered by public-sector unions for ages past.  Unions have served the teachers rather than the students with the result that educational standards have been on the decrease for as long.  Part of the problem is that alternative systems (such as the use of charter schools not under control of unions) have been kept out of the mainstream in spite of their clear superiority.  With the confirmation of Ms. DeVos, this is about to change.  DeVos is a champion of (and substantial donor to) the charter school alternative and has been active as a private citizen in the betterment of inner-city education.

“The times they are a-changin’ .”  For the
