The Republican’s Federalist Agenda

Consider that the Republican agenda from before the Regan years has been to stack the court with arch-conservatives. They realized that even a balanced or right-leaning Supreme Court overturned law after law passed to promote their corporatist, Federalist, misogynist, homophobic, and racist views. Their sponsors, the giant fossil fuel companies, the pharma lobby, the mining … Continue reading The Republican’s Federalist Agenda

Pictures and Stories from Alaska

I met many, many delightful people on my last tour/cruise to Alaska. This was Marilyn and my eleventh (or is it twelfth) trip to this beautiful state. I promised many of these people that I would post some of the best of my pictures here on my website and I'll put a few of them … Continue reading Pictures and Stories from Alaska

None of these "solutions" really limit the number of guns flooding into our streets, schools and certainly not into our homes. So many … Continue reading The Fallacy of Background Checks

Windows April Feature Update (1803)

It seems Microsoft thinks it's necessary to provide a "new and improved" version of Windows again. To this end, they have released Windows 10 version 1803. I have a half-dozen systems here running Windows 10 and all but one have successfully updated to 1803 on their own without issue. That's great. I also have a primary … Continue reading Windows April Feature Update (1803)
