American media’s embarrassingly self righteous coverage of the World Cup

Soccer isn't the most popular sport in the United States. In fact, it's not even close. Football, baseball and basketball dominate the television viewing habits of Americans. The NFL's Super Bowl is America's largest annual television event with an audience of more than 110 million people each year. Published November 23, 2022

Open letter to Donald Trump

This week you announced your intention to run for President yet again in 2024. Your track record is one of surprises, combative proclamations, bucking the system and in all fairness, some impressive accomplishments. Published November 18, 2022

FILE - In this Jan. 5, 2021 file photo, Fulton County Georgia elections workers process absentee ballots for the Senate runoff election in Atlanta.  The seeds of misinformation about next week's 2022 midterm elections were planted in 2020. That's when baseless conspiracy theories about the presidential election took root and festered, helping to spur the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Despite efforts by tech companies to slow their spread, misleading claims about mail ballots, vote tallying and certification never went away. (AP Photo/Ben Gray, File)

Final prediction for control of the U.S. Senate

The government of the United States has three branches, The Executive, the Judicial and the Legislative. The Executive Branch is made up of the President and the various departments and divisions that fall under his authority. The Judicial Branch interprets the Constitution and its application to all phases of American living. Federal Judges and Supreme Court Justices are appointed by the President, with the advice and consent of the US Senate. Published November 4, 2022

Biden, a self-described “car guy,'' often promises to lead by example by moving swiftly to convert the sprawling federal fleet to zero-emission electric vehicles. But efforts to help meet his ambitious climate goals by eliminating gas-powered vehicles from the federal fleet have lagged. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File)

Electric travel fantasyland

Have you ever observed a circumstance that seemed doomed to certain failure? Perhaps it was the nuptials of a friend when he or she was romantically enamored with someone who no one else believed had your friend's best interest at heart. Maybe it was your teenager's first used car purchase, which seemed like a great road to independence to your child but seemed clear and obvious to you would run very little and cost a lot.

Biden’s fascism folly fosters fear but ignores reality

President Joe Biden, facing historically low Presidential approval ratings and in serious danger of dragging his party down during the 2022 Congressional elections, has recently taken to describing Republicans as fascists and semi-fascists. Published September 2, 2022

The Supreme Court and baseball: You can’t just make up the rules

I have been an avid Kansas City Royals fan since boyhood. It has not always been easy, as the Royals have made the playoffs only twice since 1985. This year is sadly typical by Royals standards. They currently have the third-worst record in all of Major League Baseball (MLB). My love for the organization continues nonetheless. Published July 6, 2022

The Supreme Court: Worst case scenario

Nine Justices sit on the United States Supreme Court. Whenever a sitting justice either voluntarily retires or passes away, a vacancy on the court is recognized. The President of the United States nominates someone to fill the vacant seat, with the advice and consent of the US Senate. A nomination to the Court is considered to be official when the Senate receives a signed nomination letter from the President. Once the Senate has held hearings and investigated the qualifications of the nominee, they vote and if a majority is in favor, the person is approved and takes his or her place on the highest court in the land.

Vacation in the Middle East? Absolutely yes.

When many Americans hear a generic reference to "The Middle East" their immediate impression may be one of war and/or challenging circumstances. The last two U.S. generations have heard endless tragic stories of American hostages, "death to America" chants from Iran, the war in Iraq and a never-ending dispute between the Israelis and Palestinians. The impression of trouble in the region runs deep. Published June 6, 2022

President Joe Biden speaks in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, Tuesday, May 17, 2022. Biden's six-day trip to South Korea and Japan aims to build rapport with the Asian nations’ leaders. Biden will also be trying to send an unmistakable message to China that Russia’s faltering invasion of Ukraine should give Beijing pause about its own saber-rattling in the Pacific. Biden departs Thursday and is set to meet newly elected South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.  (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)

When Biden and Pelosi served in Congress during the Roosevelt administration

When I was a child my parents knew a woman who would come and stay with my brothers and sisters and me on the extremely rare occasion that both my Mom and Dad were away at the same time. Mom was a full-time Mom so this nearly never occurred, but once in a blue moon, my parents would allow themselves a romantic getaway from their five children. The woman who watched us went on to her eternal reward long ago but out of respect, I will not call her by her real name. For this column, she will be Margaret. Published May 19, 2022

Demonstrators protest outside of the U.S. Supreme Court, Friday, May 6, 2022, in Washington. A draft opinion suggests the U.S. Supreme Court could be poised to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion nationwide, according to a Politico report released Monday. Whatever the outcome, the Politico report represents an extremely rare breach of the court's secretive deliberation process, and on a case of surpassing importance. (AP Photo/Mariam Zuhaib)

America has a stalker: The Democrats

Merriam Webster defines the word Stalker as "a person who pursues someone obsessively and aggressively to the point of harassment." Stalkers have often experienced unrequited love, that is, having feelings of affection, real or imagined, for another that are not returned. Often the stalker begins with gentle, loving gestures such as flowers and sweet words, but when the object of their affection isn't open to his or her advances, the stalker is stunned and hurt.
