THE DESPERADO NAMED DONALD

Jim Murray · The distinct possibility that Donald Trump will not do a day of jail time doesn't surprise me. America has pretty much always had one law for the rich and one for the rest. Will it be a travesty of justice? Probably. But one thing it won't be is any sort of shocker. In fact, I be ...

How The Past Four Years Can Affect The Years To Come

Jim Murray · For the last several weeks I have been actively striving to avoid writing anything about Trump. I was able to do this because well, he was just another private citizen now, and because he's no longer president, I no longer found him interesting. · As an intellect, Trump · isn’t ...
