Dismantling Trump-era Regulations

From the very beginning, I was against many of the Trump-era regulations, signed with ease by the former president. Trump and his colleagues claimed the rise in jobs more than justified nullifying strict government policies, created over many years. Yes, folks, the former president claimed he created tens of thousands of jobs within months of […]

Ups & Downs for the week

NY Governor Andrew Cuomo spoke for 45 minutes on Monday, mostly stating the obvious – New York State is broke. He conveniently laid all the blame of the coronavirus and federal government – a move pretty much expected. The truth is NYS has been in a financial pickle for years and the Governor’s solution has […]

The Ugly American

We are the greatest nation in the world. We are an entitled people with a superior attitude, technology, social structure. American products, vehicles, steel, ice cream are the best. We are a  society of “free thinkers” who totally believe in the freedom of the individual to choose. We are a nation of laws. We are […]

It ain't what it used to be

“Progress is our most important product.” That was the advertising claim of the once powerful General Electric company, an American multinational conglomerate. The company lost a bit of its luster over the years, but is still considered in the top 20 overall. Once known for its light bulbs and media ownership, things have drastically changed. […]

Pulling out all the stops on Trump

Up to this point I have been rather reserved in my feelings for President Trump and all his “lemming followers” (?). Oh, yeah, I know there will be many Wayne County Republicans who will work up a lather after recognizing themselves in this column, but it is about time these words should be  shoved down […]

The story some don’t want told, but many do

This is one of those way-out marginal stories that should apparently never be written about, but is heavily discussed among Wayne County officials and those in the ‘know’. How does the Editor of the Times of Wayne County address allegations concerning Ken Miller, the Chairman of the Wayne County Board of Supervisors? On several occasions […]

The Great Flux

Look, this national division is nothing new. This country has been going through a flux for generations. Let me explain. Today, Democrats are seen as more liberal, Republicans as more conservative. Social consciousness is awakening big time. We have begun to understand more about racial, immigrant and male/female divisions and the effects they have on […]

Sounds like a good idea, ...but

Yes, no question the coronavirus has had an impact. Although most people in Wayne County have not been hit with the impact of many counties around the state and country, it is a safe bet there are many who have taken a hit in one way or another. The nightly news features people out of […]

The unusual happenstance of the court

Everybody in a tither about the recent vote to put Amy Coney Barrett on the Supreme Court. I am not one of them. Yes, the Republican hierarchy, led by Senator Mitch McConnell bulldozed the nomination through. Yes, Republicans, in general, ate their own words by doing so. “I want you to use my words against […]
