GOP Daring Doozies


The Senate Majority Leader Republican Mitch McConnell was once again forced to delay his repeal and replace bill after he finally realized that after all the years of promises he still does not have enough GOP Senators supporting his bill, which was drawn up in secret. There just was not enough votes to advance the legislation past key procedural hurdles.



Are you, or have you ever been in a bona fide relationship? Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free in a bona fide relationship?

The US Supreme Court has agreed to hear travel ban cases and stays injunctions as to “foreign nationals who lack any bona fide relationship” to the US.

Do countries not on the travel ban list already have a "bona fide relationship" with the U.S. by doing business with the Trump Organization?

Has @SCOTUS created an unconscionable, administrative nightmare? What exactly constitutes a bona fide relationship?

Dear Mr. President


Dear Mr. President-

Democracy is not a joke. It’s something we must work hard at and are tremendously proud of. We all want it to last, which is why you must treat it accordingly.

It is not just enough to say America first, but you must match your words with actions and represent all Americans. If you put any of us last; it’s a tragic, sad affair.

Our lives are consumed by the logistics of running our households, managing careers and caring for our families. This great nation provides the foundation for everything that we and our forefathers have built together.

Changing of The Guard


This third Sunday after Pentecost was the last religious service for Reverend Ezra Yew, Ph.D. and pastor for 6 years at Trinity Methodist on City Island. The congregation and many of his friends turned out in force to show his appreciation and also to thank his wonderful wife Lucia, who always greeted everyone with a radiant smile.

The warm weather matched the warmth in the hearts of every one of the multicultural individuals who filled the church, which represented all races and colors.

What Have You Done For US?


Dear Government-
What have you done for the US lately?
You have a GOP majority in Congress and WH.
There's no romance without healthcare and finance.
Remember that you're as good as your last day in office.
Yours truly,
-An American
Congress and The While House with your demands.


Filling your pockets with payoffs does not drain the swamp in the US.

Have you ever asked what you can do for your country?

Puttering with Golf balls does nothing for the US.

Playing a blame gets nothing done for the US.

RIP Gabe Pressman

I had the pleasure and honor of working with Gabe at News 4 NY and also of introducing him to intelligent and extremely capable younger journalists, which he truly enjoyed.
