Lies about US civil war

Trump is peddling a lot of goofy lies. One of the biggest, boldest and most outrageous of these Trumpian lies is that the US Civil War was not about slavery. An astounding lie! Some people, who tell this lie are trying to intentionally muddy the water. But, most people who say this are simply poorly educated, and parroting what Rush Limbaugh and various GOP politicians tell them. Here is a link to the Mississippi state proclamation of secession made in 1861. MISSISSIPPI PROCLAMATION OF SECESSION  This document makes crystal clear, that the US Civil war was about slavery and nothing else. Not states rights, not honor, not defense of Southern culture, not tariffs, not anything except slavery.

Ugly Times, but keep the faith

With Trump at the tiller, we live in ugly times, but keep the faith in democracy and liberalism. Even here in deep Red State Posey County, with our reputation for back woodsy social "conservatism," there are some decent progressive people. People who do not buy in to the idea, that Mike Pence's customized Jesus wants us to support war and oppose health care for sick people.  And, the really good news is, some of these decent people are starting to talk among themselves. And, in some cases, even to speak up publicly. New Harmony gets a bad rap nationally for being part of Red State Indiana and especially for being part of Posey County. All people know about us is Mike Pence, the KKK, and Donald Trump. If you are going to visit New Harmony, check with me, and I will help you avoid the haters.

Truth is change has started. Trump's overt fascism is so repulsive, that normally quiet people here in Posey County are starting to speak out against the hate and divisiveness. I give ME as an example. I acknowledge, that Trump is a serial philanderer who dodged the draft, cheats on taxes, abuses women, and can't tell the truth about the color of the sky.  I reject him, and I will NOT be quiet about it. I invite other good people to speak up about this traitorous bastard. And, I suggest you do so now, before you find storm troopers at your door. The one thing, that will defeat this evil golem is the bright light of public discourse. And free public discourse, exercising the power of free speech, is something America does best. Let's talk. I will buy the coffee.


As a bonus for today, here' a list of GOP pols, who are denouncing Trump. Sadly our Senator Todd Young and Rep Larry Bucshon are silent

unhinged mental case in the White House

I hate to sound overly critical, but it appears to me, that we have an unhinged mental case in the White House with his finger on the Nuclear trigger. And, he is talking about starting a nuclear war with North Korea, that would doubtlessly involve China on the side of the North Koreans, before it was over. That seems to me, like it would weaken us just enough for Russia to swoop in and conquer us. Trump is seriously unbalanced, and Congressional Republicans know that as well as you and I do. But, they are willing to risk the fall of our whole nation, and a global nuclear conflagration, rather than speak up.

When Nixon went off the tracks mentally, his fellow Republicans admitted it and stepped in to save the nation. But, this current crop of Republicans seem to lack the wherewithal to act. Short of a military coup to depose Trump, bold action by the other Republicans is all I see, that can save us. Yoo Hoo GOP, get your act together and DO SOMETHING, before we end up living in a military dictatorship.

In New Harmony, Indiana we pay our taxes

Here in New Harmony, Indiana, we fulfil our military service obligations and pay our taxes. But, the Washington Post is reporting, that on at least one real estate deal, President Trump, our draft dodger in chief,  probably conspired to evade income taxes. Why am I not shocked? In the opinion of this old Vietnam war vet, a serial adulterer like Trump, who would dodge the draft during wartime, probably would not think twice about cheating on his income taxes. Here is the WASHINGTON POST ARTICLE , see what YOU think.

Chicken Cordon Bleu

Would you believe me, if I told you, my wife prepared a world class Chicken Cordon Bleu for our dinner? And, that she did it all from scratch? What if, I also told you, she raised, caught and killed the chicken herself?  And, that she cooked it with solar heat, she collected with a broken pop bottle? I should have stopped at the truthful statement, that she did it all from scratch, huh? 

What happens sometimes, is if people get by with one lie, they can't resist telling a bigger lie. And they just can't stop, until their credibility is diminished to zero. That's what is happening to our president, he is on such a roll with his lying, he wouldn't know a truth, if one fell on his phony hair do.

Our president tells Golf Club members, the WHITE HOUSE IS A DUMP.
