Former GOP Strategist Steve Schmidt did not mince his words as he excoriated Ted Cruz and Trump apologists equating them just short of traitors.
Why would the DNC cede the narrative on impeachment to the Republicans by not matching their ad campaign with our own truth campaign?
Former President Obama Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, snuffs out Republican talking points about Trump hate being responsible for Trump’s impeachment. He did not lose his cool as he listened to the misinformation.
Robert Reich recently pointed out an inconvenient truth. Donald Trump is not the most dangerous Republican. This is the reason a Trump defeat is not enough
A Few Takes
My first thought when reading about a police officer picking up a coffee at Starbucks with PIG printed on the label was not what it normally should be.
I have otherwise intelligent family members who are Trump supporters. There is one thing they have in common and while not the only reason, it’s major.
I’m sitting in front of the TV eating and I see a flash on the TV. 82-year-old woman, intruder, hospital. Double take. Did I see that right?
People Making a difference
Keshia is the activist who put her body between a mob and a KKK member who otherwise was going to get beaten to death. Sadly, she was unable to save her restaurant.
Our communities would do well having more people like Ashley Mosley. She stayed in community where many have left intentionally.

Ashley Miller wrote the best sentiment I have seen so far on the win by Tiger Woods that I found most real and inspiring.
The first day of Netroots Nation began eventfully. I got up early to write one of my daily blogs. I finished selecting the panels I was going to attend for the day, showered, and then walked the 1.1 miles to the convention center. I got to the registration desk before it opened, however a crowed […]
On October 15th, 2011 I conducted a few interviews with some of the Occupy Houston protest participants. One of the interviews made the cut on CNN. I’ve included all the other interviews below as well. The protestors dispelled the notion that they did not have specific issues they were protesting against or that they were […]

A whole bunch of us are quite versant on football: stats, personnel, schedule. Ask for the depth chart of that favorite team. But politics?
The sweet potato could serve as effective weapons when dropped or flung at an enemy. What exactly was Kevin Bacon planning to do up there at 35,000 feet?
Radio Shows: Politics Done Right
A few weeks ago I attended the Bridge Alliance Conference in Washington DC and spoke to several very impressive millennials.
I met Republican Bill Shireman, President & CEO of Future 500 at the Bridge Alliance Conference in Washington DC. The conversation was prescient.
Being a Democrat is incredibly frustrating because we are the party that is right, just, and moral, but we are also the party that loses.
The United States only recognizes health as a constitutional right for prisoners. Why not like Brazil, for everyone? We have much work to do.
I’m leaving politics for a few minutes to post this basic human story. Don’t ruin your Christmas climbing without safety precautions. It could be fatal.
There was a homicide in Kingwood. Sadly this is the 2nd homicide event this year. The other one I know of occurred shockingly on my street.
Corporate/political crookedness is responsible for the successive floods in the Houston area and beyond. It has little to do with God. Here is the deal.
Rev. Chuck Freeman statement: borders and sanctuary justification “These borders were not established by God,” Rev. Freeman said. “These borders were not ordained by God. These are human-made borders. They are artificial. They are here because of colonialism, imperialism, violence, war-making, power-monger. We do not recognize these borders as they stand as artificial barriers between […]

Judge McLeod turned around his office in two months. McLeod and his staff accomplished more in 2 months than his predecessor did in two years.
One of my favorite actresses, Diahann Carroll, died today. We actually got her program in Spanish while I was growing up in Panama.
Aretha Franklin is dead but she lives on in the manner most of us knew her. And as such, she lives on and will live on forever.

On January 14 a federal appeals court decided to weaken the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Internet Neutrality policy by striking down the rules it adopted in 2010 to regulate Internet service […]
It seems like I chose just about the right time to write an article on Wendy Davis. She finds herself under attack not only by the entire Right Wing establishment, but from the traditional media as well. She happens to be the story to balance the myriad of bad acts by Republicans. There is a […]
