catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.

trump obamaDid Barack Obama tap Donald Trump’s phone?

If so, therefore, is Donald Trump correct that the former President is either a "bad man", or "sick", as he tweeted?

Right now, my response, until we know for sure, is, who knows what the Obama administration did, or did not do?

trump grimmaceThere is a constant in action-adventure movies that just when you think it can’t get any worse, it does. It’s a rule that applies to the Trump administration, too. The fire in the kindling that has built up around the posts in the President’s brain has turned into a conflagration so great that even Smokey the Bear has left the forest.

trump watchMuch is being said about Donald Trump’s new press secretary—his name is twitter. Some love it and join our president-elect in the optimism for the future.

Then, there’s others who have take a different view.  The media goes ballistics and becomes hysterical every time the digital communications future commander in chief goes into operations.  Although Trump and his followers believe he is the man of the future, some believe the leaders of our past would be stone-faced with embarrassment over his emotional twitter tirades.

Obama's get Putin, pre-Trump, options are limited

putinThough Donald Trump isn’t sure if a guy in Jersey hacked the Democrats, or not, U.S. intelligence services are confident it was the Russians trying to help #anyonebutclinton. It’s not like Trump needed the help, as it turns out, because the Clinton campaign’s deplorable blunders doomed Hillary, even before Bernie was tossed out of the lifeboat with his hands still bound. Notwithstanding, it boggles the imagination that Russia would set out to elect a rightist Republican as the next U.S. President, but as the Nobel Poet Laureate Bob Dylan, said, “For the times they are a-changin.’”

trump carrierDonald Trump is not even in the White House and he is already saving jobs. Within the past few weeks, he has helped secure jobs at an automobile factory in Kentucky and at a Carrier plant in Indiana. In fact, Carrier was threatening to take 2,000 jobs to Mexico, but will now retain 1,100 jobs in Indiana, mostly due to Trump’s deal making abilities.

Trump's triumph, Obama's long stroke

331px Barack Obama playing golf 2Don’t expect President Obama to go away as quietly as an Irish mother’s whisper. It’s not going to happen. For starters, he was leader of the Democratic Party for the last eight years. This is good news for a scandal-plagued DNC that’s, essentially, rudderless right now. But, who needs an administrator when you have a shadow President to direct the party’s activities from behind the statuary. There are rumors that his Presidential Library is going to be built on K Street.
