Mr Weiner’s Curious “Life Insurance” File

Recently, there have been some shocking (or not so shocking) revelations about the beloved Mr. Weiner and his obsession with conveying information about his private parts.

The FBI has uncovered some of his wife’s, (Huma Abedin, a lady with uncommon connections and associations) Emails with her associate. Hillary Clinton and others on Mr. Weiner’s personal laptop. Of course, Mr. Weiner’s laptop is normally used only for personal work -( you know, normal things that everyone does, like sexting with juveniles, and transmitting photos of our privates.)

There is so much that is shocking about every facet of this story that it becomes hard to find some element that stands out from the absurdity of the whole damned mess.

Well, here it is! The file that held these Emails was named “Life Insurance” Perhaps this was mis-filed, maybe it was a life insurance file that Mr. Weiner put these thousands of documents into by accident – but – I rather doubt that.

No, I think that the name of the folder tells as much as the contents are about to reveal – I think that Anthony felt that this information might just save him from driving off the road late one night, or falling down the stairs, or becoming despondent and shooting himself in the head (three times).

One thing for sure, It will be no shock when, as President Obama retires his office, Hillary is pardoned for the entirety of her actions – My, oh my, what ever have we become?

Senator Kaine

Hillary relied on Tim Kaine to bring Virginia to the Democrats. He did not disappoint, I believe that Senator Kaine is a smart, experienced, competent gentleman. He is what a politician is supposed to be. Though I supported Trump, I will support Tim when the time comes – and the time will come.

I have known Tim for decades. We are not close friends, but we are friends, and we remain friends today, as we were yesterday. As I said before Hillary chose him as her running mate, he was the best choice that she could have made. The failure was her failure, not a reflection on Senator Kaine. In fact, the Clinton campaign would not have done as well without him.

Many have called me a Republicat, this because I am unafraid to support a great candidate regardless of party. I guess that I must be. I think that blind voting by party is much of the kind of thinking that got our great nation to this point.

If you read this, Tim, congratulations on a fight well fought. One day, I will be supporting you, not for the second position in our great nation, but for the first. Job well done. Keep your chin up and stay proud.

The Republicrat

My friends used to call me a Republicrat. I identify as a republican, but I have some views that seem democratic.

I feel that this position is very reasonable and should be much more prevalent than it is. I am a guy who would love to see Donald Trump for President and Tim Kaine for Vice President. I hold a conservative position on fiscal things, yet I feel that a society has a responsibility to help those in need.

Governor Kasich, (Rep. Ohio) said it best in a talk he gave to a small gathering on the lawn of the Spread Eagle Tavern last summer when he said (paraphrased) “If we build the finest nation in the world, yet we fail to take care of those who are most in need, to what end?”

Indeed the reason for democracy itself, is to form a governmental structure that is equitable across all classes of society. All should have a voice, all should contribute, and all should share in the challenges.

Of course, this has become bastardized by some who wish to “buy” votes from the most simple classes to so persuade – the upper, and the lower. Most of us are, like me, are stuck in the middle. The middle is much larger in money and influence, yet has almost no representation in our current political environment.

Many brilliant minds have seen this evolution of polarization as inevitable. (see my writing       “The Iron Law of Oligarchy” ) I do not. The drafters of our Constitution and the Bill of Rights saw this mess coming, and did their best to forestall the failure. Time will tell if we can survive as a nation, and as a concept of representative democatic republic.

The Democrats held the keys. They proved themselves to be driven to extremes. Now, we, the Republicans have been handed a magnificent mandate. Let us not be spiteful and extreme. Let us not be punitive. Let us seek consensus and bring this grand nation back, not by forceful mandate, but by considered cooperative effort.

Let us all look with an open mind at what best serves the whole, and act positively in this magnificent reconstruction. Let us not allow the pendulum to swing so wildly that it impedes that magnificent right of all Americans – “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness”
