THERE IS SOMETHING THAT YOU [WE] CAN DO…

October 2nd, 2017

While The Guardian continues Live Updates into a second day, please consider this: the slaughter in Las Vegas is the 1,516th mass shooting in the United States in the last 1,735 days. In the last 57 months, 1,719 Americans have died and 6,510 have been injured in mass shootings. Look at those numbers again. 1,516 […]

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS REDEFINED EPIC FAIL

September 25th, 2017

Driving between students today I was blown away by how every, and I mean every, radio news show focused on one story: President Donald John Trump’s appeal to his minions with his fire the sons of bitches meme. You might argue that Trump has distracted us from yet another zombie blowing up, but I don’t […]

‘CAUSE RIGHT NOW ALL WE HAVE IS THE DUMMY…

September 13th, 2017

From The Washington Post: An Ivy League graduate headed to law school, with eyes on becoming her state’s first female governor, Miss North Dakota Cara Mund knew the importance of answering a question head-on. So when judges at the Miss America competition asked her whether President Donald Trump was wrong to withdraw the United States […]

STEVE BANNON STEPS FROM BEHIND THE CURTAIN…

September 12th, 2017

Trevor is funny and on target, but if all you know about the 60 Minutes conversation between Steve Bannon and Charlie Rose comes from the late-night television show hosts (like Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert for starters) then you’re grossly uninformed. I confess that I agree with much of Bannon’s assessment. I also disagree with […]

HOW TO INTIMIDATE A UNITED STATES SENATOR…

July 26th, 2017

I should have called Senator Robert Jones Portman yesterday, but I didn’t. That’s on me. This morning, however, I did call (and write) the senator’s office and left this message: Good morning. My name is Jeff Hess and I live in North Royalton, Ohio. I’m calling this morning to encourage Senator Rob Portman to not […]

SEAN, WE HARDLY KNEW YE: SPICY 2017-2017…

July 21st, 2017

Spicer’s run was the 6th shortest of 31 White House Press Secretaries. According to the Washington Post: Spicer’s resignation on Friday means his run as the president’s spokesman was among the briefest ever. Each of the five men who held the position for less time than Spicer had his term truncated by special circumstances. Roger […]

OUR CHILD-IN-CHIEF TAKES HIS BAT & BALL HOME…

July 19th, 2017

President Donald John Trump just told his base that he couldn’t care less about them and that if he couldn’t win his way, he is taking his bat and ball and stomping home to Mar-A-Logo. Three corageous Republican senators—Lisa Murkowski, Alaska; Shelley Moore Capito, West Virginia and Susan Collins, Maine—are already taking heat for doing […]

PHILANDO CASTILE: I HAVE NO WORDS…

June 22nd, 2017

In We must remain shocked over Philando Castile. Justice needs moral outrage, Chiraag Bainsa, a former prosecutor for the U.S. Justice Department, writes: A jury recently acquitted Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez in the 2016 killing of Philando Castile, a beloved school cafeteria worker. On Tuesday, the prosecutor’s office released key evidence, including video from […]

SO, I MEAN, WE’LL KEEP TALKING ABOUT IT…

June 21st, 2017

This is one of what Trevor Noah calls his Between The Scenes segments where he talks to the audience during the commercial breaks. As good as Noah is in his scripted bits, I’m finding the honesty and transparency in these segments actually better. As Noah points out, Philando Castile was a legal gun owner with […]

June 8th, 2017

Dan Alexander, reporting in How Donald Trump Shifted Kids-Cancer Charity Money Into His Business for Forbes, writes: The best part about all this, according to Eric Trump, is the charity’s efficiency: Because he can get his family’s golf course for free and have most of the other costs donated, virtually all the money contributed will […]
