video still of President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at Rose Garden press briefing

by Richard Cameron “Tax Reform” and the myth of the corporate tax rate Donald Trump, together with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell,  participated in a press conference in the Rose Garden on Monday – a Q and A preceded by one of Trump’s excessive, rambling, largely incomprehensible word salads.  It was, as we have come to expect –  riddled with false statements and devoid of factual data.

Danger Ahead! The Runaway Tractor Trailer Rig – Trump’s Presidency

by Richard Cameron Trump’s Runaway Presidency The standard metaphor for anything that is going “south”, that is to say, badly wrong, is a speeding train hopping the rails – an impending train wreck. Since it is so overworked and such a cliché, perhaps we should opt for another analogy to the Donald Trump presidency – the runaway semi-tractor trailer. In this one, the president is the owner-operator of the bigly rig and the rig is the Office of the Presidency and the contents of the trailer is the stability and…

by Richard Cameron   Ever since Facebook arrived on the scene in Cambridge, Mass in 2004 (yes, that far back), it has been surrounded with controversy and detractors.  Anything that has such a wide reach throughout the fabric of society is bound to. Much of the criticism is valid. Facebook has provided not only a platform for social interaction, but also for government surveillance of citizens and for opportunists looking to exploit or steal your personal data. I have also written about the phenomenon of “Facebook Jail” – a place…

by Richard Cameron   I’ve seen a lot of angry people expressing their outrage about football players kneeling during the anthem. I respect their right to their viewpoint, while at the same time, I don’t share it.  Donald Trump, predictably, got in the middle of this, seeing in it another opportunity to exploit the anger of his remaining base voters.  At a rally in Alabama, Trump juiced up the crowd with, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say: ‘Get that…
