After nine years of living in Russia, Edward Snowden, the former NSA Analyst has been given Russian citizenship. My opinion of Mr. Snowden has not changed. From the beginning, I believed he was a traitor, on the same level as CIA traitor Aldrich Ames. He should have been brought back to the US, tried, convicted
I spoke with a friend about 3 weeks ago and as usual it went to politics and the GOP. She said she was still a “proud Republican”.. I told her I had left the GOP. She then asked me what I was. I answered: a ‘Proud American.” Suffice to say, that friendship is not on
I am bringing Political QRM back to life . In the weeks ahead I will do a little more tweaking to the graphics, content and add video.. The times we find ourselves in are precarious. The America we had come to enjoy is now under attack by the very people who are supposed to protect
Lou Mascitello 1956-2020 To anyone who has ever read the essays or listened to Political QRM podcasts you are probably aware that Lou, my co-host, my friend, a person whom I considered a brother had passed away on April 28, 2020. It was complications due to COVID-19. However, (and I had no idea) he was
I’m tired. So tired. I have been a Republican all of my life, extant. I have seen presidents come and go. Some I liked and some I didn’t. I never, EVER, thought of any of them as being worth anything more than a smack down in an op-ed or, more recently, on “social” media. I didn’t
Admittedly, I know NOTHING of football. ANY football. I DO know some of the team names and some of the cities, but other than Boston, don’t ask me to identify them. Other than that I know that, Like most sports, there is an “offense” and a “defense”. Terms I recognize from >seven years wearing green
When I was seven years old I wanted to be a vampire. Simple. I would be taken to Transylvania and sit in some secluded basement of a castle and bingo, I’d be a vampire. Maybe I was suffering “living dysphoria” and that my transition would make me whole. Or, I could have been watching too
It’s all, in the vernacular, “B.S.”. Nancy Pelosi is one of, if not the, shrewdest and most astute politicians in recent memory. The top gold miner in the DNC world, she plays the game on a championship level and has for years. Calls for the impeachment of Donald J. Trump began on 9th November 2016.
The RIGHT to keep and bear arms is just that. A RIGHT. After all the years, (I’ll call it 50+, using 1968 as a start point), of “But…but…but…” IT IS STILL a RIGHT. It’s not a “suggestion” and it’s not a “privilege”. Any position or argument to the contrary, (again, after all of these years),
I have to, on occasion, defend government stats I use on “social” media as stats. Amazes me on the daily how when those stats are BAD, they’re stats. when they’re good , they’re “opinion” or from a “biased” agency. You know, like the Dept. of Commerce. While I agree with the old saw, “lies, damned
On this edition of Political QRM, we touch on the cultural problems of this country and the influence on our everyday life.. And how Hollywood wants to have a bigger say in our lives than you realize. CPAC weekend, NOKO summit and more this week..
In MY, (NEVER), humble opinion…I have NOTHING against ANY person who, through their own intellect, effort, dedication and a little luck becomes a millionaire, billionaire or trillionaire. None. Whatsoever. Keeping in mind that, where millions go, scandal follows. Look, I don’t CARE who they may or may not have slept with, are sleeping with or
We discuss the Green New Deal and more on this edition of Political QRM
