Running out of winning issues, Republicans are inadvertently pushing abortion to the front of the campaign. Also: cops & politics, and the Left forces Joe’s hand on Israel.  www.charlesbursell.com

Apr 4, 2024

Watching The Ten Commandments on network TV just as God intended, traveling for the eclipse, abortion and weed to the rescue in Florida, reading election tea leaves, and The Orange Menace continues his repulsive campaign.  www.charlesbursell.com

Mar 28, 2024

MAGA Republicans have forfeited all rights to be covered in the media as a legitimate political party.  www.charlesbursell.com

The faux-feminist argument over Barbie and the Oscars is shallow. Art is not always subjective and yes, some opinions about art are just plain wrong. Also, arts awards are stupid and money ruins everything. www.charlesbursell.com
