'Progressive' Democrats need to reconnect with the American people; regain their trust We need to see a new breed of Democrats step up to energize and motivate their party to reconnect with the American people by regaining their trust. We might say that the "Blue wave" that seems to be gathering momentum is a sign of what is referred to as "Out with the old and in with the new."

Rapidly becoming irrelevant in America: the principles of ethics and morality Take a look at what is happening in the US Congress and, especially, what is not happening. Take a look at this society and what is going on within it. What do we see? It appears that we have entered an era in this nation's history is which the principles of ethics and morals are becoming irrelevant in both this government and our society.

Mass shootings, children being gunned down in cold blood; a dark stain on the soul of America What in the world is happening in our country, to our society? Why are mass shootings becoming commonplace? And why in the world are children in schools the primary victims of these murderers? These children have become targets; they are like sitting ducks in a shooting gallery.

Time for the UK and European nations to do what is right and reject US dominance With Trump making one of the worst, most reckless decisions by an American president in U.S. history he has, unwittingly, provided a brilliant opportunity for European nations to begin the process of breaking away from decades of American dominance.

When Mueller closes in on Trump with irrefutable evidence, Trump will run but he can't hide Special Prosecutor Mueller is getting very close to making a formal request for Trump to meet with him to answer pertinent questions relative to the Russian interference in our election system. So far Trump has given out countless declarations about whether he would or would not meet with Mueller but you can bet that, when he thinks about the facts and evidence that Mueller undoubtedly has, he will refuse.

Root causes of America's immigration dilemma: and the necessary, viable solution If America had a rational-thinking president and other competent leaders they could readily come up with a viable solution to America's ongoing immigration problem. This dilemma was created by thousands of American companies in full view of those leaders who could have taken preventative measures to stop these illegal entries at its inception.

The Democratic "Blue Wave", a powerful tsunami rushing toward Trump and the Republicans The huge unpopularity of President Trump, combined with the Republican agenda of destruction, appear to be freeing the vast majority of Americans from their prolonged state of apathy. This awakening has triggered a Blue Wave that, as it continues to gather momentum, will erupt into a tsunami that will engulf the Republican Party in the November elections.

Three elements coalescing to send Trump and Republicans into a crushing defeat in November A very powerful storm, rapidly building in intensity, is rushing toward the Trump White House and the Republican Party. This is not a storm that we typically see in various sections of this country. This is a political storm that has the potential to bring down the Trump administration and, with it, the GOP.

America's children: caught in the crosshairs of the NRA and the gun industry Can you imagine the psychological trauma that children across America are going through as they hear of one school shooting after another? When sitting at their desks, instead of concentrating on the subject under discussion, they may well be thinking that someone could come bursting into their room at any time and gun them all down.

One day in the not too distant future we will see President Trump stride across the White House lawn, stand in the doorway of Marine One the presidential helicopter, broadly smile, and wave goodbye to the people of America. He will then take off to join Richard M. Nixon in political oblivion.

Republican tax reform: principles of ethics and morals be damned House and Senate Republicans rammed their tax reform plan through Congress and they and President Trump hailed it as a monumental achievement, a great step forward for this country and its people. However, this proclamation is in sharp contrast with the views of many millions of Americans who are highly skeptical and aren't buying into it.

Dreams of Gun Control: President Trump will present a sweeping plan to combat domestic terrorism (This is a fantasy about the proposal I'd like to see come out of the Trump White House.)

In the next few days I will present a comprehensive plan to Congress and the American people by which to bring this dire situation under control."

The problem, however, is that in a relatively short period of time in office, he has become a facilitator of divisiveness, suppression, and negative policies and actions that adversely affect America. Can such a conclusion be supported by fac

The Media: Not so much fake news as shallow, less than objective journalism While Trump's insults aimed at the mainstream media are often referred to as outrageous the fact of the matter is that this media is most certainly not above criticism, not by any means. Here are some of the reasons why it falls short of representing the best of journalism.

With that, Mr. Trump is also telling the world that America will now adopt a go-it-alone strategy in international affairs; that it will concentrate on its own interests and let the rest of the world fend for itself.

Actually, Nero didn't play the fiddle during that deadly fire because the violin had not yet been invented. The reference to fiddling was meant to point out that he was an ineffectual leader in a time of great crisis.
