The Whitehouse Blog
Some of you need to learn about government. And talk about it too. This is my site for political discussion that was simply that. I felt I needed this non-astrological space for some people who do not need to know what “Saturn square Uranus” means.
It is a left-leaning blog, but if someone thoughtful conservative came along, I would be welcoming enough. (In the age of Trump, you folks need a refuge of some sort).
