In Search of Meaning

On a day when the person in the White House is commuting the well-deserved sentences of a gaggle of white collar criminals, it seems reasonable to wonder about the Meaning of Justice, of Right and Wrong, of Good and Evil.  Perhaps the young people who knocked at my door earlier, wanting to talk to me about the Bible felt they have the answers.  But I'm pretty sure that they and their Bible-thumping ilk are part of the problem-- enablers of a corrupt regime and an evil man. ...

So there’s a chance that at least ONE President Trump will be in attendance The White House Correspondents’ Association dinner is an annual tradition that goes back almost one hundred years, and although it’s been customary for the sitting president and vice president to attend since the very first dinner in 1921, Trump has skipped out on all three that have occurred since he’s been in office.

Check out the trailer below. The Plot Again...

Blago’s not the only one off the hook Tuesday. In addition to former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s commutation, President Donald Trump used his pardon power on several less-than-savory characters, including an infamous ‘80s investor known as the “junk bond king.” The king, Michael Milken, was convicted decades ago of securities fraud, and his allies have tried ever since to secure a presidential pardon. Milken was fined $600 million and spent 22 months in prison for what Bloomberg News call...
