Everything is political. Oh what a tangled we weave when politics gets involved.

Everything is political.

  • Freedom of Religion February 21, 2012
    I checked the preamble to the Constitution and guess what? It starts with the words “We the people.” It does not begin with we the hospitals, schools, day care centers, soup kitchens, or any other institution … not even churches!  The first amendment guarantees freedom of religion to “We the people” it does not guarantee ...
  • Election Reaction December 12, 2010
    My reaction to the elections is a bit delayed.  I guess I’m still a little in shock.  Needless to say I did not expect the outcome.  When I discussed it with Professor Levine at UT and he predicted a 50 seat loss in the house.  I thought that was impossible, I told him maybe ...

Again, both Liz and I were selected as delegates to the Nevada State convention which met in Reno. ...
  • Nevada Caucuses January 21, 2008
    The Nevada Caucuses took place Saturday and Liz and I attended our precinct Democratic caucus at the local school.  We had 117 show up.  Only 3 candidates received support and (unfortunately) Edwards only had 15 supporters.  The viability cut off was 18 and we were unable to convince anyone to join so we had to redistribute ourselves. ...

  • Election 2006 November 3, 2006
    Have you seen the adds being put on by AARP? You know, the ones that say “Don’t Vote”?  Well not voting isn’t the thing to do, but that’s not what they’re telling us to do anyway.  What they’re say is “Don’t vote until you know where the candidates stand on the issues.”Well, I did that, I ...
