In the wake of the recent spate of violence, or as Mayor Pete calls it, “the White Nationalist attack on our National Security,” a respected scientist and certainly no Conservative sent out a tweet. Because that’s what we do now.
Anyway, the tweet contained much truth. It was truth that nobody can deny nor can anybody really dispute it. So, naturally, the well-respected scientist and non-politically Conservative has been pummeled on Twitter.

I didn’t really want to get up this morning and do a show. The suggestion was made to do one that didn’t address the issues of the nation over the past few days, but even that seemed a chore. Talk about Star Trek, the Olympics, the All-Star teams, anything that takes our minds away for a bit.
Like so many of you, I watched last into the night in horror and confusion the events in Dallas. What can be said? What can be added? I was up yet again at 2am, and so I had another chance to talk with a friend and colleague who found himself in the same pickle.

But, regardless of your “politics,” whether you’re Left or Right, Conservative of Statist, Religious or Agnostic, you’re not going to like my answer, which is as predictable as the tides…
The violence at the Chicago Trump rally doesn’t make any logical sense. Or… does it? With all the reputable polls showing that Clinton beats Trump in November, what is gained by the protesters and their outrageous behavior?
As Dave gets onto a tangential subject, the Wounded Warrior Project recently fired their managers, but there remain several questions. In Modesto, the City Council, which this time a year ago “had to have” millions of dollars in increased tax money just to stay afloat, is toying with the idea (don’t worry, they are going to do it) of giving a local not-for-profit that the City in effect started almost a million dollars to “train residents in how to organize and solve their own problems while working with the city.”
