About Me

I was raised to be a right wing Republican. Born in South Carolina. Great grandson of a trial lawyer famous for defending whites on trial for lynching blacks. Strom Thurmond studied in his law firm. Mother dated Thurmond. Nephew of a KKK member. Late father and mother both Republicans. Sister active in Republican politics to this day. The University of South Carolina's political science department and its fraternities, of which I have a degree and membership respectively, are and have been ultra conservative. Lee Atwater was a college and post college drinking buddy. Served in the US Army. For eight years, I was a lobbyist for big oil. I also was an investment banker and I am now and have been a entrepreneur businessman in the financial technology area for the last 25 years. I am a white man and over 60. A church elder. I am in the 2%. To the surprise and disappointment of many people I know and in spite of all the odds, I am a staunch Democrat. I was Executive Director of the South Carolina Democratic Party under Don Fowler.

USPS Union Have Carriers Deliver Ballots Directly to Election Delivery Addresses

Why do these ballots, that are clearly marked need to go to the local post office to be sorted. Establish a temporary post office at the Election absentee ballot office and have carriers take these ballots directly there at the end of every shift. Should be less than 5 miles on average from the end of a postal delivery route. What am I missing here?

Did the NY ATTY Gen Just turn out millions of votes for Trump?

And increase the likelihood that there will not be a transition of power.

Ich bin ein Portlander

Trumps were broke in 2015. Here's how I know.

I am President of a company that sells technology based services to businesses. in 2015 we were approached by a company called 21st Century TV to produce an infomercial. Common marketing strategy. Their claim to fame was that the host of the infomercial would be non-other than Donald J. Trump, Jr. They also would send on site a videographer that would do customer interviews.

We would then go to a professional studio for a day and shoot an in studio interview with a host. It would then be placed on Bloomberg and we would get the content to use in our promotions. Trump was to have been the host, but he canceled when the campaign started. We did it with another host.

The whole thing was less than 20k. The host not only has to be there for the half day shoot but prepare and practice questions. I canít imagine it would be more than a $3K to $5K payday for Trump. OK if you are a B list talking head, but this the supposed son of a billionaire. ???.

Her is an example of the work he was doing.

Portland protester strategy against the secret police

Understand that Trump sent these guys in to provoke a fight. He needs the image of police fighting with "rioters" that are fighting. Don't play into their hands. Be MLK smart. Sit on your Federal Court House property. Sing. Hold hands. They are there to start a fight. They have to please the boss. Let them. John Lewis knew they had won when the camera's got the picture of the dogs. Play this smart.

There will be a "New" Silent Majority in November

We need to cut off this discussion of the silent majority. I have heard way to much from this Nixionian Silent Majority through the megaphone of Donald Trump. It is time for the majority to speak up by casting their vote in November, We will make America America again. It will be a country lead by a new silent majority who believes in majority rule and the principles of our constitutional government.

I am going to tell you a Trump.

Democrats never make a mistake. That is a Trump or as it used to be called a lie.

When my children were growing up, I would always tell them that Democrats and Republicans both make mistakes. You know, have to be fair and balanced.

I would tell them that Democrats sometimes give welfare mothers too much babies milk. and

I would also tell them that Republican's eat their young.

You know, fair and balanced.

Man, that AntiFa guy in Buffalo wasn't a very good terrorist.

Are we sure these guys are dangerous.

If you are not AntiFa you are ProFa. You choose.


Only Obama can fill the leadership void.

I hate to say this. I feel for Obama having to do this. But only Obama can go on national TV and ask for calm and channel the outrage to voting for change in November.
