Can Our Democracy Survive Trump as President?

Just over a year into the Trump presidency, Republican Senator Bob Corker’s judgment of Donald Trump—that he “has not demonstrated that he understands what has made this nation great and what it is today”–has proved to be true.

We Don’t Need this Congressman

As a member of the obstructionist Freedom Caucus, Maryland Congressional District One Congressman Andy Harris is one of the most partisan, least productive members of the House of Representatives.

Is Trump’s America Still ‘The Leader of the Free World’?

Holding fast to the belief that most Americans remain very proud of our nation’s long-standing reputation as “the leader of the free world,” one cannot help feeling very distressed that our current president, as well as many of his most ardent supporters, seem now to...

Confederate Symbols Should Be Moved

In New Orleans, Mayor Mitch Landrieu has successfully led a campaign to move four Confederate statues from prominent places in that city. Three of the four were tributes to Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis and PGT Beauregard.  The fourth was a monument to the 1866...

Democrats Aren’t the Problem; It’s Trump

I read the June 27, 2017, editorial in the Easton Star Democrat with surprise.  As a voter who is deeply concerned for all of my family, friends and neighbors locally and nationwide because of President Trump’s bizarre and erratic behavior, I take issue with the...

Alt-Left? They Won the Second World War!

President Trump’s explanation of alt-left and alt-right, as two violent, mirrored extremes at loggerheads, was personally very enlightening. I now understand that allies such as my dad (T/SGT, U.S. Army Air Corps 1942-45), and my mother (CPL,Royal Air Force...

Talbot’s Shame Continues

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks American hate groups, has reported a significant increase in the number of hate organizations and their members in Maryland.  The KKK has their state headquarters in Rosedale, Maryland. There are several neo-nazi groups in...

The Talbot Boys and Charlottesville

One dead, dozens injured at a white supremacist’s rally in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday. Racist marchers, with a torch-lit, MAGA-hatted chorus of Nazi sloganeering, assault unarmed citizens, clergy, and American values as the gutters run with blood, hatred,...

Generals can’t moderate Trump

Many are hopefully regarding Generals Kelly, Mattis, and McMaster, as “moderating influences” on Trump, restraining the President’s most ignorant impulsiveness with the steadying hand of their military experience: Well, Daddy isn’t coming home...

Rest easy and be well

We haven’t heard from Rick Kollinger in a while. It’s good to know that the Easton Star Democrat cartoonist and occasional columnist is doing well, and we do have something in common. My primary care provider, or “general contractor,” is also Dr. Schilling, and I also...

Democrats’ agenda for working and middle-class Americans

There is such an avalanche of reprehensible behavior and widening and deepening scandals and criminal investigations engulfing Donald Trump, his family and associates that it’s easy to miss the destructive and regressive policies coming from him and his complicit...

The anti-democracy Republican Party

    The Republican Party that once screamed about how “We the People” would “take our country back” while wrapping themselves in our Constitution?  That was obviously just for show in response to the election of our first black president.  They...

A disgraceful role model in the White House

 President Trump hit a new low even for him in disgraceful behavior the afternoon of July 24, this time delivering a spiteful, crude, and self-obsessed partisan address to, of all groups, the Boy Scouts at their Jamboree.  Keep in mind these are mostly 11-13...
