10 Reasons Why I’m Thankful for Donald Trump
Donald Trump has caused lasting damage to our country and our democracy, or at least to what many of us believed our country to be.

Bill Maher is a Republican
The supposed ‘left’ comedian is left behind I keep watching Bill Maher’s “Real Time” show on HBO, and have done so, Religulous-ly, almost since its inception in 2003.

We Believe in Free Speech
No, Really: All Evidence to the Contrary Years ago, when I was teaching public speaking to community college students, I started an impromptu debate on the topic of free speech. It was easy to get a student to take the “pro” side; nobody was willing to argue the “con,” so I did. What I said […]
