Tweet (Akiit.com) This past week, years-long tensions over the rather peculiar Twitter feed of the president of the United States reached a boiling point. President Donald Trump, of late, has been engaged in a rather sordid and baseless bit of social media mudslinging about popular cable host Joe Scarborough’s purported involvement in the death of […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) The man in black solemnly stepped forward and placed a flower wreath at the military graveyard’s central display as TV cameras from many networks recorded the ceremony to mark Memorial Day. Americans whose loved ones gave some, or gave all, for our nation expect this annual moment of honor and remembrance from our […]

Donald Trump’s presidency but Hillary Clinton’s playbook?

Tweet (Akiit.com) We are three-and-a-half years into Trump’s first presidential term, but why are we still in Hillary’s playbook? I suppose it could be coincidence. Life is full of coincidences. Maybe winning lottery tickets are a coincidence. A man in our area recently bought two lottery tickets at the mini-mart, went home and got a […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) Like many who’ve had to shelter-in-place, I’ve had time for introspection and reflection. I’ve had to limit contact with family members, but I’ve had the opportunity to share memories and plan for future engagements with them. As leader of a national organization, I’ve had to plan for the utilization of new creative procedures to […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) It doesn’t matter how together your life seems to be, sometimes things go wrong. Often these aren’t situations that have anything to do with our behaviour; it’s just life throwing us a curveball. Occasionally, when our backs are up against a wall, or if we are going through a tough period, then we […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) There were 4623 incarcerated people over 65 in federal prisons during the first week of May. Until May 12, Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump’s one-time campaign manager, was one of them. The 71-year-old petitioned the court for release to home confinement because of his age, heart condition, and “fear of coronavirus.” Yet the federal […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) Think about an election where a ballot is sent to a person regardless of eligibility or to an address that person may not live at anymore; signed by someone else; picked up and delivered by a Democratic campaign operative; and still counted. If Democrats were to get their way, that is what would […]

American Politics; Choosing the Wrong Opponent.

May 24, 2020 by  
Filed under News, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (Akiit.com) It is a common, if not especially honorable, practice in American politics for a candidate and her campaign to prefer to run not against their actual opponent on the ballot but rather against the most unpopular caricature of the opponent’s party. That explains why Democrats, for close to three decades after the election […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) It probably looked really good on paper. Bickering couple gets caught up in a murder and goes on the lam. It’s just enough of a framework for two comic geniuses to flaunt their comedy licks. Kumail Nanjiani made a name for himself on the series Silicon Valley, and hit it big with the romantic […]
