Isn’t a resolution to all of Trump’s (91) legal issues before November necessary for voters to make an informed decision?  Trump says he’s trying to protect his First Amendment rights and freedoms. I say he and his legal lackies are trying to trample on ours.

Do you ever feel that our culture has traversed deep into the Twilight Zone?  Complete presidential immunity?  Say WHAT?  Why is anybody taking this seriously? The answer is that no serious person is taking it seriously.  Certainly the D.C. Circuit Court didn’t.

I’m confident SCOTUS won’t either, at least on the (non) merits of Trump’s argument. But Trump’s eternal mantra of “Delay, Delay, Delay” could “Subvert, Subvert, Subvert” our legal and electoral processes.

So now the Mob Boss is demanding “protection money”? Under his desired second term as president, not only will he not defend any NATO partner that is behind on its payments, but he would actively encourage Russia “to do whatever the hell they want to”?

And you still doubt that Trump is in Putin’s pocket? The issue here is OUR national security. Shouldn’t that always be Job One for an American president?

All this garbage from the guy who never pays his bills?

And hardly a peep from Republicans?

Can you hear the Twilight Zone theme in your head?  Doo-doo-DOO-doo…Doo-doo-DOO-dooh… Oh, I’m happy to answer one of Trump’s recent questions. “Where’s Nikki Haley’s husband?”  Serving his country. You might wanna give that a whirl sometime.

Paul's Bio

I clearly have the attention span of your median fruit fly.Look! Airplane!

Sorry. I’m back.

It’s both a curse and a blessing. I’ve never bought this stuff about, “He who dies with the most toys wins.” But I do think that a wide range of life experiences helps us grow as people, and helps us better relate to other people. I’ve been fortunate. And I am beyond grateful.

I show up on time. I go like hell. I’m a good listener. I hold myself accountable. I own my mistakes. And I have a natural and an insatiable curiosity. I’m never afraid to say, “I don’t know,” when I don’t. But then I try to find out.

The flip side is I’m a lousy ballroom dancer and my clothes sometimes fit me funny.

Stuff matters to me. I care. But while I take that stuff seriously, I try hard to never take myself seriously. As a result, I have sometimes been told, “Paul, it’s hard to tell when you’re serious and when you’re just having some fun. Which is it? Serious or fun?”

My answer is “yes.” But I think that is a legitimate criticism. I promise I’m going to work on that.

This has been the quickest and strangest half-century I’ve ever experienced. During that period, I’ve been afforded amazing opportunities in news and sports journalism across all platforms. I have taught wonderful students at the high school and collegiate level. Always, I learned more from them than they did from me. I’ve been a high school administrator. I spent ten seasons as a high school varsity football coach. I’ve been an advertising executive. I’ve hosted nationally syndicated television entertainment shows. In maybe the biggest honor I ever received, I was selected by NASA to be “Chet The Astronaut” for the “Land The Shuttle” simulator at Space Center Houston. (All I can say there, is “Do as I say, not as I do.” I put that thing in the Everglades more often than not.) Most recently, I just wrapped up a decade as a television news director, during which time our teams distinguished themselves in holding the powerful accountable, achieving both critical and ratings success.

What does all that mean? It means I am profoundly grateful. It also means I’m ready for “next.” So here we are. Radically Rational. It’s an idea I woke up with in 2017. I scribbled “Radically Rational” on a piece of notebook paper and used a magnet to stick it on our refrigerator. I saw it every day, and it just would not leave me alone.

I am second in charge at Radically Rational, LLC. My wife, Jo (also known as BB), is the president. Clearly, I have failed in my attempt to sleep my way to the top of this organization.

I hope you will learn that I’m loyal as a Labrador. But I will admit that this doggie can bite every now and then. My promise to you? I will show up on time. I will go like hell. I will listen to you earnestly and attentively. I will hold myself accountable. I will never be the least bit hesitant to say, “I don’t know,” when I don’t.

But then I’ll try to find out. Let’s do it.
