Electoral College Tomfoolery Hillary the 46th President, Electoral College tomfoolery November 6, 2019 09:12 Posted in: Politics - What happens if no presidential candidate gets 270 Electoral votes in the 2020 U.S. Presidential elections? Is this even possible? Well, yes, it is. The U.S. is horribly divided. Half the people hate Trump, and the other half fear socialism and the onslaught of far-left politics. This leaves the door open for a compromise candidate in an independent third-party run for the presidency. Over the years, there have been many attempts at a third-party run. None have succeeded. The last… Continue Reading

November 3, 2019 17:00 Posted in: Politics - One of the many oddities of the Jeffrey Epstein situation was a painting of Bill Clinton wearing a blue dress and red heels in his Manhattan home.

She also painted former President George W Bush - a satire of a child-like president, playing with airplanes amidst broken build blocks - perhaps emblematic of the towers that fell on 9/11.… Continue Reading

Is God an Egalitarian? October 27, 2019 10:39 Posted in: Culture, Politics - Is God an Egalitarian? For the purposes of this article, perhaps we need to define egalitarianism. Egalitarian is generally characterized by the idea that all human persons are equal in fundamental worth. For many, this definition sounds reasonable, but the devil is in the detail. Some go further and argue that egalitarianism is where people should be treated as equals and have the same political, economic, social, and civil rights and advocating the removal of economic inequalities among people. Whoa,… Continue Reading

Trump Cult Are Trump supporters living in a cult?

Syria Turkey Forget impeachment, could Syria be the Trump demise? October 15, 2019 06:01 Posted in: News, Politics - President Donald Trump shocked Washington with an abrupt decision to unilaterally withdraw from Syria after a phone call with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Some would say that 50 troops could not have been doing much, but it was backed up with naval and air power if needed in the region. Besides, if one would attack the… Continue Reading
