BIG Government Just Got Bigger

BIG Government Just Got Bigger

    By Richard Colman Franklin D. Roosevelt is alive and well. No, not really.  But, politically, Roosevelt’s legacy remains vibrant. Roosevelt, a Democrat and president of the United States from 1933 to 1945, has become the symbol of big government, and big government just got bigger with the passage of the American Rescue Plan […]

Destroying Excellent Schools

Destroying Excellent Schools

    By Richard Colman The ugly specter of bad public education is spreading. In San Francisco, Lowell High School will, in the 2021-2022 school year, change the admissions policy.  For decades, spaces at Lowell were reserved for academically talented students.  The new admissions policy will use a lottery to admit students. With the United […]

Radical, Left Wing Extremism Could Destroy The Democractic Party

Radical, Left Wing Extremism Could Destroy The Democractic Party

    By Richard Colman Defund the police.  Start a Green (environmentally-based) New Deal.  Determine school admissions and job placement by ethnic background, not merit.  Spend public money on special social programs like universal child care and universal pre-school.  Bring about a socialist economy. All of these policies, worthy as they might seem, threaten to […]

Sales Tax Oppression

Sales Tax Oppression

    By Richard Colman The sales tax in Califoria has become oppressive.

It’s All Rotten

    By Richard Colman Something is rotten.  And, to paraphrase words from Shakespeare, what is rotten does not necessarily have anything to do with the State of Denmark. Politicians do not address what is rotten.  But if they did, confidence in democracy might skyrocket. What is rotten is the new world of automation, especially […]

Abolish “60 Minutes”

Abolish “60 Minutes”

      By Richard Colman So Donald Trump walked out of a “60 Minutes” interview broadcast on Sun., Oct. 25, 2020. There were two problems with the broadcast. The first problem was Trump himself.  By now, he should have developed enough political skills to handle any question. The second problem was “60 Minutes” itself.  […]

The Democract’s Suicide Mission

The Democract’s Suicide Mission

    By Richard Colman Nationally, and perhaps in California, the Democratic Party is on the verge of a suicide mission. Instead of acting as a party embracing centrist tendencies, the Democratic Party has devolved into a series of special-interest groups, most of which want to bankrupt the nation and, consequently, lose the November 2020 election. […]

Senate Heavy Weight Scott Wiener Exudes Power

    By Richard Colman As the present session of the Legislature winds down, an intense battle between Progressive members and their moderate advisories is brewing on housing policy. The Leftist elements are trying to impose some nine new bills that would negatively impact how future generations in the “Golden State”, are to live. Taken […]

Looking for a Job! Try Capitalism!

Looking for a Job! Try Capitalism!

    By Richard Colman Are you out of work and looking for a job?  Can you even find a job in America’s miserable economy?  And if you have a job, do you hate your boss?  Instead of bashing the capitalist system, why not become a capitalist.  The solution is simple:  Start your own business. […]
