For 8 years, Republicans have screamed at the top of their lungs that given half a chance, they'll make America great again.
Well, they have a chance, and so far, it's been a first-class mess.
Transitions are always marked by some confusion, but this transition takes the cake because the current office holder believed that the scrawl of his pen would change the world and everyone would cheer.
Perhaps it works that way on the top floor of the Trump Tower, but not in government.
I have long suspected, and history backs me up on this, that Republicans are unable to govern ... given power, which America has a need to do now and then, they always end up the same way: more for the rich and less for everyone else.
This is not a governing philosophy, and, for me, flies in the face of my Christian Faith.
As for the faith, I've been at it awhile ... with all the requisite work of prayer, study and consultations.
So, I'm comfortable with where I am, as opposed to offering opinions on the status of Pluto or the latest in Hip Hop.
Getting back to the Republicans: the depths of confusion and scandal show no signs of letting up, and plenty of signs that it's going to worsen.
This is what money does. And it seems that the Republicans are all about money, their money and my money, too - i.e., taking my money and giving it away to the mega-rich.
The Republicans hold to a philosophy destined to ruin this nation (it's happened before); a philosophy that cannot govern, but only plunder.
