This Is Amerika

The politicians and commentators wringing their hands at last week’s coup attempt in Washington were for the most part united in their protestation that “this is not America.” They were wrong. This is what America has become. The ideals are there, perhaps, but the reality is a nation divided with no end in sight unless […]

Why Trump Lost

Yes, they are still counting the votes, but even Donald Trump knows in his heart he lost the 2020 US presidential election. Not because it was fraudulent but for one reason: COVID-19. There are three reasons COVID-19 was fatal to the Trump presidency. He might have managed re-election despite one or two of them, but […]

The Next President

The election results tell us Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States. Are you sure about that? And I’m not talking about the ongoing legal challenges the Trump team has mounted to try and overturn the results. I don’t see much hope for success there. Which may mean that Joe Biden […]

While The World Waits…

I spent most of Wednesday with CNN playing in the background as I worked. I wanted to know who was the winner in the US presidential election. I still want to know who won, but I am not listening anymore. I’ll find out when an announcement is made. Maybe Friday. At first I thought Donald […]

When It Is All Over…

I’m writing this shortly after midnight in the eastern US, and there is no winner yet in the American presidential election. There may not be by the time you read this. I have great respect for the Republican party’s ability, as the minority party, to get their supporters to the polls. That is how Donald […]

Voting Day – Again

Americans go to the polls today to choose a president. I don’t have a vote, which is just as well since I’m not impressed with the choices. Are you? Four years ago, when Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, I posted this plea on election day. I was going to write something new today, nothing has […]

Gotcha!?

Several years ago a friend introduced me to the satirical Babylon Bee website. Unfortunately, Donald Trump’s friends didn’t tell him about it. Maybe that is due to a lack of friends with a sense of humor. Or of friends who would frequent a Christian site such as the Bee. Whatever the reason, last week Trump […]

Mailing It In

The US election is in two weeks from today, and the ballots are starting to roll in by the millions. President Trump has been screaming about massive fraud. But does he have credibility? Due to the pandemic, an unprecedented number of Americans are voting by mail this year. In ordinary times, mail-in ballots are a […]

Highly Debatable?

It’s an event everyone usually ignores. Except for tonight. Once every four years the candidates running for vice -president of the United States square off against each other in a televised debate. Other than political junkies, no-one watches. Being vice-president is a thankless task in America. You have no real job description; you just have […]

The Positive Test

I was planning today to write about the US presidential election, then figured it would be too depressing. Maybe some COVID-19 jokes instead. Then Donald Trump was confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19. It is a little surprising that more world leaders haven’t had positive tests. Their jobs expose them to so many people. […]
