The apochryphal story of George Washington confessing to cutting down a cherry tree is captured in this painting. Washington was noted for his integrity. Wonder what fable might arise regarding our current president. There are many to choose from although none worth commemorating in art. Here are a few for aspiring artists: H/T John Rolls for Obama Cartoon Barack Obama [...]
There are reasons to be worried. Things are not right in America. Current conditions are unlike anything I have witnessed in my seven decades on this sphere. Here is a pretty good summation of what I feel: I don’t know if these are the last days, or just the last days of freedom, but our republic is now beset by [...]
Let’s get serious folks! We have an inveterate liar in the highest office in the land. There is no crime in saying so: To announce that there must be no criticism of the president… is morally treasonable to the American public. Theodore Roosevelt What does a country do when its leader routinely ignores its laws and routinely lies to citizens? [...]
Barack Obama is our Joe Isuzu President. Truth and integrity don’t matter. Joe was likable. Barack is not.

This use reminds me of my late-life entry into academia where I quickly learned about “collegiality.” Most people had numerous initials after their names and believed [...]
Do I think President Obama should be impeached? Yes! Do I think he will be? No! To understand why I think he should be, it is useful to review the Nixon impeachment articles and then compare them with a hypothetical set of articles developed for Barack Obama. Here are the articles of impeachment brought against Richard M. Nixon: Article 1 [...]
I have contended, almost from his obtaining the office, that President Barack Obama is different. The terms “pathological” and “sociological” have been applied to describe him and his behavior. These clearly were more “gut feel” than clinically-based psychological or psychiatric analysis. However, one need not be either see deviant behavior. Most of us spend our lives dealing with others. Experience [...]
Whether you consider Edward Snowden a hero or a traitor likely reflects your political affiliation. Democrats, who used to be against spying when in the opposition party, tend to view him as a traitor. Republicans, who used to be in favor of spying, tend to look at him as a hero. Both views are strongly influenced by how one feels [...]
