Sat, 24 Jun 2017 09:38:04 -0500

I'm sure you've noticed, as have I, our politicians, who claim to represent our interests, often vote, in some other manner! Whether it's because of fears, lack of a backbone, self - interest, greed, or some combination of factors, when crucial votes are taken, it often seems, these individuals care less about the electorate, than it would appear, they should! How else can you explain, politicians voting strictly along party - lines, rather than focusing on needs, concerns and priorities?

The Health Care Debate: Facts, Spins, Objectives, and Ramifications

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 07:53:47 -0500

There is probably nobody in the United States, who has not witnessed the ongoing, continuous debate about healthcare, about the best possible course of action. While there have been many perspectives and opinions, about the Affordable Care Act (also known as the ACA, or Obamacare), and a fair evaluation would indicate both benefits, as well as drawbacks, the current politically motivated attempt to re - define our healthcare system, may, or may not, even, be focused on improving, and/ or doing what is in the best interests of many Americans. When we have a President, who appears to be disinterested...

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 07:18:18 -0500

How often have you heard, some candidate, running for elected office, speak about what's wrong, often resorting to blaming and complaining, and making numerous empty promises and rhetoric? While we should have become used to this type of behavior, it seems, many voters continue to believe whatever someone tells them, especially if it fits into their perspective/ agenda!

Political Leaks: 4 Issues

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 07:39:25 -0500

Political leaks have always existed, but, in recent times, there appear to be more attention paid to these. Perhaps, it's the number of venues available, including the increased number of cable news networks, websites, and Social Media locales!

Why Don't People Vote in Their Own Best Interest?

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 07:43:29 -0500

Recent political events, the Brexit referendum in the UK and the US presidential election, have revived the age-old question: why don't people vote in their own best interest. Winston Churchill said that democracy was not perfect but it was the best system of government that we had. It is a system by which every adult person has a say in the government of his country through the exercise of a vote at periodic elections. In every country, the majority of the people are relatively poor. So why don't they vote for parties and policies that help poor people?

Presidents Usually Get Invited to Berlin

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 14:30:01 -0500

Berlin, once the cockpit of World War 3, is now a booming cultural and economic success. Traditionally, US presidents visit Berlin during their presidency. How has their reception during state visits changed since President Kennedy's famous, 'Ich bin ein Berliner'? The author undertook a non-scientific analysis, by observing the people at play, during President Obama's 2013 visit. He wonders what sort of an occasion a President Trump visit would be? The iconic Tempelhofer Feld, once the main Berlin airport, has remained a symbol of resistance since the Airlift kept the city alive. Today, it is a recreational area - just grass, asphalt and huge buildings and the perfect barometer of public opinion.

Sun, 11 Jun 2017 09:26:42 -0500

Have you ever heard of a "Contemporaneous Memo?" Well, if you're ever in need of a convenient source for "Truth" and thus require incontrovertible "Facts" concerning any subject matter then by-all-means, feel free to create your own memo for the record. Titus Flavius Josephus, St. Paul of Tarsus and many others did it; so can you!

For Unity

Thu, 25 May 2017 07:10:47 -0500

Nixon: Was No Barack Hussein Obama

Wed, 17 May 2017 20:15:46 -0500

Time Magazine and Nancy Gibbs - Exponents of Yellow Journalism, Muckraking, Progressive Propaganda

Tue, 16 May 2017 21:28:57 -0500

Who's paying for the propaganda ministry that's currently comprised of most of the mainstream medias newspapers, television networks, and electronic/Internet news services? It is certainly a well-financed effort to undermine the Trump administration, which was elected in November 2016 when the great heartland of America realized Hillary Clinton's gross corruption and decidedly voted to upset the Democrat Party's cart of pungent rotten apples. "Time" magazine and its managing editor, Nancy Gibbs, are a composite well funded cog of this prevailing propaganda ministry, and the insidious lies and distortions written and published by Gibbs about the Trump administration are a well financed and calculated effort to undermine Constitutional government. Read on for an explication of these issues...

Public Office Appointments: Should It Be A Panacea For Rewarding Ruling Party Activists?

Sat, 13 May 2017 16:13:09 -0500

Political party activists are individuals who devote their time and resources for advancing their political party's ideologies. They sometimes forgo personal or family pleasures to pursue things that would favor their political party's agenda. This is very crucial in electioneering campaign seasons. Political party faithful uses their personal monies in funding their political party's election rallies while devoting their time solely to party business. Sometimes, precious time that should have been used for personal or family relaxation, business and/or education is sacrificed all in the quest of bringing their political party to power to govern their country. Thus, when such political dream comes to reality, such persons would want to be honored, as it were, by public office appointments. They reason that they must be rewarded by assigning them an offer to serve the country, irrespective of their academic prowess, working experiences, and personal abilities. Should this be the case? Must political activists reap the fruit of their labor in tirelessly sacrificing for their political party to come to power through political appointments to serve in public offices?

Trump's Plan for NAFTA

Wed, 10 May 2017 11:51:47 -0500

The World Order Is Governed by Religious Leaders and a Web of Deceit

Mon, 08 May 2017 21:10:13 -0500

Lies have built a barrier of such strength and magnitude that no one can penetrate it without a special form of help.

When Donald Trump ran for President of the United States, he ran on a platform to bring jobs back from overseas. Trump believes that the only reason why the United States lost manufacturing jobs to overseas is because the United States government forced the American people to compete with those of another country. In other words, the government decided to trade with low production cost countries, which hurt the American people in the long run.

Elite Or Privileged

Sun, 09 Apr 2017 11:14:27 -0500

Since we were small children, many of us have been conditioned to recognize the physically strong, the mentally gifted, the wealthy, and the powerful to be the natural leaders who can show the rest of us how to have success and happiness. I do not recall being counseled to measure the performance of such people, nor did I receive a warning that they could choose to combine their talent with evil intent.

The Long Over-Due Truth About John McCain: The Contrived Belief in a Media-Made Delusion

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 07:38:27 -0500

How can a proven traitor be transformed into a hero by the media and maintain a hero's status for nearly 50 years, without some element of that media revealing the truth during that time? How could John McCain, elected and re-elected Senator from Arizona since 1986, have escaped from the truth about his treasonous collaborative actions as American POW in Vietnam? The truth is that McCain, son of a U.S. Navy admiral, spilled his guts to the North Vietnamese after being shot down over North Vietnam in October 1967, in exchange for special treatment. McCain was named "Songbird" by the POWs in the Hanoi Hilton POW camp who despised him for collaborating with the enemy. Read on for details about the real John McCain...

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 15:10:36 -0500

A great deal was said during the EU Referendum campaign about the risks of leaving the EU and some commentators drew attention to the risks of remaining in it.

I go on to consider the similarities with risks which can arise in business where change creates risks in both the outcome and the process.

Mr President, Let's Build a Wall

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 08:37:01 -0500

This wall, unlike that on your agenda, cannot be financed by the Mexican or Russian government. Moreover, we do not have the time or the luxury to debate this issue. You must hasten, to administrate every national resource within your power--to restore the excellence of the "Oval Office" (our seat of power and International leadership) We must protect our country from "Hackers," "Bad hombre's," "Nasty Women" and practically anyone who is not fit to be commander in chief.

Affordable Healthcare Act Turned Out To Be Far Too Expensive - Should Have Read Before Signing

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 06:51:28 -0500

One question that many are asking is; how can we trust the CBO (Congressional Budget Office) now, after they were so far off on what the Obama Administration's "Affordable Healthcare Act" or ACA was supposed to achieve, namely 34 million uninsured Americans would be covered, turned out to be that the net gain was only 10.5 million. The ACA was supposed to allow people to 'keep their doctor' and see reduced costs for health insurance - again, the opposite happened. Let's talk about the politics, narrative, and continued misrepresentation of the ACA, shall we?

Stop The Insanity

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 06:36:24 -0600

How much longer can the American people and the world for that matter stand by and watch the Trump Administration strip away the very vital programs that actually make our country and the world that much safer? There has to be some way or someone capable to step in and pull the plugs on this insane President and the Republican assault. One has to wonder just how long can we put up with a leader of the free world who has proven time and time again to be a pathological liar, an obnoxious paranoid schizophrenic and an arrogant buffoon.

Understanding Narcissistic Rage

Tue, 07 Mar 2017 07:01:55 -0600

The magazine, Psychology Today, refers to narcissistic rage as "a chilling rage." From the point of view of a narcissist, the world "looks like it should approve, adore, agree and obey you. Anything less than that feels like an assault and because of that a narcissist feels justified in raging back at it." Psychology Today also lists characteristics of narcissists.

A Republican Model Emerges for Replacing Obamacare - Samuel Butler's Satirical 1861 Novel Erewhon

Sun, 05 Mar 2017 12:28:16 -0600

Erewhon is a 19th century novel, part satirical, part adventure tale and part dystopia, as is the case with most attempts tongue-in-cheek or sincere to describe a utopia. It could, somewhat facetiously, be said to be the kind of model that might tempt Republican lawmakers seeking to repeal the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.

The Electoral College Guarantees Every Vote Counts

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 08:37:29 -0600

The Founding Fathers had great foresight and in all probability, divine guidance for including this as the only way all American's can equally have their voice heard.

What Might We Do When Confronted by Moral, Political and Spiritual Spies?

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 07:22:58 -0600

If they came to your house, what would they find? If they looked in through your windows, what might they see? Are there not spies all over the place in these dangerous days and a number of them appear to be motivated by political motives? There are new questions arising in America and in Washington in particular and there are also new questions arising in the United Kingdom and in Downing Street, and Holyrood, Edinburgh. He is on his way to the 'lion's den', but he is unaware of that, as he prays. Spies go to his house and discover him praying to God, overhearing him asking for God's help. If political spies came to your house, and peered through your window, would they find you at prayer?

Are I-Deals the New American Ideal?

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 17:56:04 -0600

As a history teacher I have learned many lessons. It has taken me a lifetime to accept that it may be naive to expect my president or my nation to uphold an allegiance to anything greater than themselves. And a part of me still wants to hold fast to the belief in a United States of America guided by Enlightenment ideals. But at the Woman's March on Saturday, I recognized that even if those ideals no longer shape our national government, they are powerfully branded into the souls of its people. And it is up to us to carry them forward.

Civility In Exercising First Amendment Rights

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 10:09:50 -0600

Although peaceful protesting is a right of free speech, free speech does not allow for the violation of another's First Amendment Rights. Groups, that encourage protesting anywhere from town halls to city streets, who pay protesters to come from outside the area often cause peaceful demonstration to escalate to civil disobedience and in many cases violent attacks on individuals with whom they disagree; and riot to include looting and destruction of private property and businesses. The responsibility for the conduct of protesters lies solely on the shoulders of the Organizer Group.

Why Donald Trump Is Not My President - When Americans went to the polls in 2016 the world waited with baited breath. The results came in thick and fast as millions of viewers all over the globe had their fingers crossed. However, it seems what we feared most is what befell us.

American Fraud Becomes The Norm As The American Public Sleepwalks

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 09:49:36 -0600

The current hacking uproar of the Democratic National Committee, by alleged Russian intelligence, reveals the hypocrisy of unacceptable fraud outside American, versus acceptable fraud inside it. While the American public is apparently happy and willing to simply accept without comment or challenge whatever American created disinformation, or exaggeration, the American media and the CIA are content to deliver to it.

Border Wall Costs Estimated By The Government Are Quite Expensive

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 06:52:58 -0600

During the campaign Donald Trump estimated the cost of building a "big beautiful border wall" along the US/Mexico border at somewhere between $8-12 Billion depending on which campaign video excerpt you watch. He ought to know right? After all, he's built buildings that now characterize New York City's skyline - suffice it to say he knows the construction industry and what is possible and also what is not. Still, it now seems the DHS has put out a report that doubles that cost, and doubles the time to build it as well.

Illegal Aliens March On May Day Chanting, "He's Not My President"

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 06:59:45 -0600

It is interesting that an illegal alien would dare to march in protest in someone else's country trashing their government. We have that occurring in our country today - we have illegal aliens marching in our major cities, on a Communist Holiday - May Day. These illegal immigrants add insult to injury as they march and chant; "He's Not My President". Funny really, because that's actually true, Donald Trump is not their president, as they are not American Citizens, and their president resides in the country they came from before they came here, broke in and decided not to leave.

Insideous Syncretism

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 11:02:38 -0600

A most powerful political maneuver affects massive numbers of voters in a voting population when a pleasing message masks the underlying truth. A frog is comfortable in water, and will be a willing participant in its own death if the temperature of the water is raised to boiling, one degree at a time. The frog is content, even up to its death because it believes that it got what it wanted.

What do we do when the heat is on? Many are facing all kinds of heat and stress and pressure. These are times of surprises and challenges no matter where we look. As we watch the news and observe the tensions what are we to do? Politics appear to be a-changing. As I write, observing carefully the activities and statements emerging from The White House in Washington, there have been two or three weeks of amazing and astounding decisions, such as we would not have anticipated nor have even guessed. What is about to happen in Washington, Downing Street, London, and Moscow's Kremlin? These are politically unnerving days if you do not have the spiritual nerves and courage to see you safely through these moments that almost take your breath away. Do you want God's solution? Are you interested in the best answer available?

With Brexit and The White House and Moscow Unnerving Many, How Can We Cope and Thrive?

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 07:27:45 -0600

Is there anyone reading this who has never worried? With The White House Washington, Brexit London and the Kremlin, Moscow occupying much of our news time on television and radio, there are many who are becoming increasingly concerned and even deeply worried. We have suddenly entered a new day politically and there are those who think this day has no dawn. Can I say something that might calm a troubled heart and impart peace to a distressed mind? What controls and masters you? Is it fear and worry? Fear and worry are terrible twins. Worry has never changed a situation in the past, and worry does not influence what will happen in the future, but it sure can wreck and ruin and mess up today!

Tear Down That Wall Now President Donald J Trump

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 13:42:22 -0600

What the wall literally and figuratively means - Donald Trump the President of the United States of America has been successfully undoing the decades of efforts taken to bring about communal harmony in America. Being a Cosmopolitan country at its best, in spite of the minor scuffles on interracial issues, the cities and the suburbs alike have been slowly progressing towards a more permissible attitude in the minds of the people towards people of other races. All this has been undone by the President's declaration that he is going to build a wall on the Southern Border to...

Immigration of Today Is the Terrorism of Tomorrow

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 07:49:48 -0600

Christiane Amanpour, globetrotting international journalist of exceptional professionalism and talent, interviewed an obviously affluent, educated, suave French lady on the streets of Paris very early Saturday morning after the terrorist attack there in November 2015. Speaking softly, but deliberately, showing little emotion, the French woman, when asked her thoughts on the horrific Friday evening of mayhem in her country, responded, "Immigration of today is the terrorism of tomorrow." Simple but stirring, painful but poignant, difficult but distressing, a call to attention for what we must consider here in our own country, the United States of America, lest we, ourselves, become even more complacent and ignore the obvious out of a false sense of obligation to the destitute and needy of the entire world.

Big History and Donald Trump Changes

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 10:46:50 -0600

The theme of "Make America Great Again" is a rehash of the successful Republican strategy in the 1920 election which called for a return to "Normalcy.". When this election is viewed in historical perspective, we see that Trump's message was essentially anti-change. His changes attempt to reverse irresistible demographic, economic, and international forces best understood through the lens of Big History..

Fake Americans, Home Invaders

Many Americans are waiting to see how President Trump will address illegal immigration and immigrants. Emotions aside, what is a good way to think about this illegal immigration issue?

The Trump Alternative to ISIS

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 08:45:06 -0600

Donald Trump, the vocal opponent of ISIS, has already demonstrated in his campaign and early weeks in office that his values are too close to those of ISIS for the comfort of American democratic principles. Recognizing and combating the methods and values of the "radicalized" and extremist Trump base is essential for continuity of American democracy.

The Hidden Agenda

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 08:41:42 -0600

With his henchmen behind him Donald Trump continues his sporadic, neurotic and self inflicting behavior that typifies a person on the edge. This wouldn't be so bad in itself but when we have a President of the United States behaving as only the Trumpseter knows how to do the country and the rest of the world are beginning to realize that this one person could in fact unleash untold damage to the republic of the United States and could realistically shove this nation toward international conflicts that could lead to a world war. That being said the fact of the...

Should Trump Become More Statesman-Like Or Is It For The World To Adapt?

Sat, 11 Feb 2017 06:50:11 -0600

Eid MiladUn Nabi

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 11:41:53 -0600

It has increasingly become a fashion to celebrate Eid Miladun Nabi in an extremely disquieting way that no sane human being would appreciate. Of course, those who perform these irritatingly annoying tasks would not agree with me and might even deem my statement to be sacrilegious but I beg you to think pragmatically and answer this question, Are the acts performed during the days of Eid Miladun Nabi rationally acceptable?

Silicon Valley Should Practice What It Preaches

Sun, 05 Feb 2017 19:14:14 -0600

Does anybody else see the irony in the great technologists of Silicon Valley railing against the Trump Administration for hampering the economic prosperity of our youth, restricting immigration and diversity, and fostering income inequality. Today's technologists would be well advised to reflect on their own complicity with what's wrong with our world and think about "high tech" solutions for addressing those problems before opting for "low brow" criticism and cheap shots for those currently charged with meeting and overcoming the challenges that await us.

Air Force One Should Have An Escalator Ramp For The President

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 07:14:54 -0600

Have you noticed that our President and Dignitaries on Air Force One and Air Force Two have to walk up stairs to get in? Why? Shouldn't they have escalators on those portable stairs? Remember how much trouble Hillary Clinton had getting into her little leased Boeing 737? If she had won the presidency in November of 2016, she wouldn't be able to make it up all those stairs into a 747 which is twice the uphill hike as that little 737. Russian President Putin doesn't have an escalator either but his aircraft is much smaller than a Boeing 747 like Air Force One, in fact side-by-side, it looks like a toy, although it does have a nice interior (cite: 1).

The Winter Of Discontent

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 07:42:43 -0600

As the winter of discontent surges to every corner of the globe there are painful reminders of who many voted for last fall. The hindsight of which too many failed to heed the warnings of Senator Sanders has surfaced through the national consciousness. Yet, our democracy in action paved the way for a demigod, narcissistic and power hungry individual to gain the seat of power.

Beware Prepare to Resist: The Trump Administration Is Taking Us Down a Slippery Slope Into Theocracy

Fri, 27 Jan 2017 13:21:10 -0600

A theocracy is religious, whereas a democracy is rational. In a theocracy, the population is governed by officials who believe they are guided by a god, always, of course, the one true god. Even when the governing body is chosen in a system of elections, the evolution of a state can drift into a theocratic form of rule over time. Theocracies are not known as champions of liberty or personal freedoms. Religious dogmas tend to be incorporated into laws. In countries where theocracy is prevalent, the rights of women, religious minorities, non-believers, gays and lesbians are curtailed. This essay describes how the election of Donald Trump and the cabinet nominees he has picked are cause to worry about a drift into an American theocracy, with attendant losses of liberty.

Build Bridges Rather Than Walls

Fri, 27 Jan 2017 07:20:41 -0600

I have been writing articles for fifteen years. My goal as been to encourage people to look at themselves, their inner workings and their relationships as a way to come closer to others as a world community. As such, I see it as our responsibility to understand each other, learn what is important to others and find ways we can work together in our common interest. I have heard from many people over the years who are working to find a productive and cooperative way to live in peace with others.

Why We Need to Say Black Lives Matter

Thu, 26 Jan 2017 13:01:05 -0600

The phrase "Black Lives Matter" creates a lot of charge among, especially, white people. We tend to feel we're being put down or invalidated, and we respond by saying "All lives matter." This article (which could also be written about brown, Asian, transgender, gay and lesbian people) gives an analogy to show why it's important to say "Black Lives Matter."

Will UP Witness a Mayajaal During Assembly Elections 2017?

Tue, 24 Jan 2017 11:04:55 -0600

Battle of UP is as prestigious as 'Battle of Stalingrad 1942'. If UP falls into opposition BJP will be encircled from three directions Bihar, UP, and Delhi. This will not be good for the party wanting to implement many political, economic, and defence reforms. After the massive defeat of Stalingrad, Adolf Hitler stated, "War God went to their side". Will the UP elections be same for Prime Minister Modi is what political observers are eagerly watching?

Left or Right - Who Are You?

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 11:36:05 -0600
