Fri, 02 Dec 2016 07:28:45 -0600Is it just me or is there a divided world emerging? We probably all know it's always been there. But with the advent of society's problem with and reaction to political correctness gone too far, the divisions are emerging everywhere and they're affecting lives - separating good friends, for instance, because the sharp malalignment of even one passionately felt issue disintegrates their affection.

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 08:37:25 -0600It was a given that someone would call for a recount of the votes cast during the 2016 presidential election. This call for a recount is becoming a growing trend since the Florida election recount of the 2000 presidential election between George W. Bush and Al Gore, and augmented by the Washington gubernatorial election recount of 2004, the Vermont Auditor of Accounts election of 2006, the Florida congressional elections of 2006, and the United States Senate election in Minnesota in 2008.

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 13:40:06 -0600We can continue down the path of war, hatred, greed and violence and obliterate ourselves, or we can create a new paradigm. The old paradigm is run by authorities who have grown-up bodies, but their brains are functioning as a six-year-old.

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 10:52:13 -0600How does the mainstream media works in America - An inside look Recently, many Democratic and Socialist friends of mine have commented on how the media provides Donald Trump unfair amounts of coverage while Bernie Sanders' mentions, even in the last leg of his race, didn't come close. I couldn't help but wonder if Donald Trump won the election without much coverage of his rhetorics and went on to act on the signature promises of his campaign, like the Muslim ban or the border wall, the same friends would go, "Oh, the media never told us."...
Wed, 23 Nov 2016 09:16:35 -0600On November 8, 2016, in a political shock that turned the system upside down, Donald J. Trump pulled ahead of Hillary Clinton in electoral votes and won the United States presidency.

Mon, 21 Nov 2016 10:18:43 -0600The nation is arguably as divided as it was in the years leading up to the election of Abraham Lincoln - and we all know how that turned out. Divisions are nearly equally divided not just between Democrats and Republicans and liberals and conservatives, but as well between urban and rural, young and old, educated and not so much and the prosperous and the have nots. There are more divisions, but this listing makes the point. So, what a wellness enthusiast to think and, more important, do about such a state of national affairs. A few suggestions are highlighted.
Mon, 21 Nov 2016 09:55:12 -0600Sorry to have to break it to you. The truth is that President-elect Donald Trump is not anti-establishment. Certainly he is the opposite to Hillary Clinton in many ways; he will bring different policies to the country and a new look to the White House. Yet these two are only opposite in the same way day is different from night. Day and night together make up one 24 hour cycle of a calendar day. Similarly, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton together comprised the whole of the 2016 presidential election.
Mon, 21 Nov 2016 08:27:14 -0600In today's chaotic world one can relate to the Doors rendition of "Riders On The Storm".

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:45:18 -0600Democrats and Republicans have always been at odds in politics. Since the election of Franklin Delano Roosevelt; Americans reached a tipping point even back then. After World War II, America wanted to help as many people as they could and that theme has carried over into the 21st Century of politics. Since the New Deal was devised, it was a revolutionary boon for the Democratic Party. Forever thankful would the people be for helping them survive after the war that devastated families who lost so much.

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 08:22:40 -0600The fact that some Universities and their professors in the United States cancelled or postponed classes and projects to enable students deal with the trauma and stress they were experiencing following the result of the Presidential Election points to a singular failure of their part to fulfill their role as educators. As institutions of higher education and learning they are tasked with encouraging the development of the minds and intellect of young students so they will have the capacity to, inter alia, explore, research, analyse. comprehend, apply and disseminate experience and knowledge. They ought to enable students to rationalise and understand a range of complex information covering, public administration, social administration, economics, law and in the course of comparative studies develop appreciation of the democratic process and alternative political regimes. One could hope this is not just reserved for students of political sciences alone.
Mon, 14 Nov 2016 07:25:08 -0600In the same way that food brands often rely on different celebrities to sell their products; presidential candidates can also look towards these kinds of people in order to encourage people to vote for them.

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 09:01:04 -0600I suspect that a vast majority of Americans do not actively participate in government. My comment is not about employment in government, rather it is communication, sharing your views to elected officials who represent you. In many years, politicians worry about getting enough citizens to bother to vote at all. Voting is important, yet somehow, Americans do not understand that voting is only part of their responsibility as citizens. We are all supposed to pay attention to the activity of our elected officials and regularly tell them what we want them to do about crafting or refining laws that affect us.
Wed, 09 Nov 2016 08:18:40 -0600Election Day 2016. What does it really mean? There is more to life than politics.
Wed, 09 Nov 2016 07:00:18 -0600The United States and our CIA often intervene in foreign elections to try to get the voters to vote one way or the other. Our President has tried to influence the elections in many countries with speeches - remember the Brexit Vote? Some world leaders are very upset in hindsight when they win - look at the President of Philippines for instance. Now then, none of this is new, we've been doing it all over the planet for decades, and we probably will continue to do so, even as we claim to be for democracy, aka: power to the people.
Tue, 08 Nov 2016 10:02:21 -0600Chiefs are custodians of culture and arbitrators of riots in the society.

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 08:14:39 -0500The book of Daniel is known for its prophecies that span the centuries and show amazing accuracy. In this article, we see the biographical chapters also have an application to "latter days" and end-times. The obvious is Obamacare from Daniel 1, but all of the first five chapters can fit what's been happening under Obama.
Thu, 03 Nov 2016 09:33:41 -0500If someone pays attention to the mainstream media, they are likely to have heard a lot about both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. And while this could be due to the living in America, this might not be the case.
Tue, 25 Oct 2016 09:41:27 -0500The 2016 election has been overshadowed with superfluous, irrelevant issues. And neither candidate promises to fix the real issues plaguing America...
Tue, 25 Oct 2016 08:08:16 -0500The claim that Donald Trump will win the 2016 presidency in a landslide may seem surprising to some. After all, the media arrogantly assert that Hillary Clinton is the certain winner. The reality is that there are historical reasons why Donald Trump will be our next president.
Fri, 21 Oct 2016 13:39:44 -0500Until 1824, there were no popular votes in U.S. Presidential elections to determine the vote of the Electoral College for the President of the United States. During, and after 1824, unscrupulous Presidential candidates, such as Presidential Candidate and Secretary of State John Q. Adams, used the Electoral College to manipulate their successful selection as President through the U.S. House of Representatives. This was how Andrew Jackson lost the Election of 1824, when he won the popular vote and the Electoral vote. It looks like Hillary's long-arm can probably extend into the 2016 Presidential Election to arrange for California's 55 Electoral votes to go to her, even if Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump wins the California popular vote. Would this be a violation of the will of the California electorate? Read on for a cogent examination of these issues...
Fri, 21 Oct 2016 07:36:45 -0500Did you know that a great heart shines though its owner's personality? Think about it. Are you not drawn to be near people who smile, who are generous, happy, trustworthy, genuine, and true, as if they were a light and you were a moth? The light in them shines even brighter when the heart of a good person is in the body of a philosopher.
Thu, 20 Oct 2016 13:37:26 -0500Allowing an outsider to run for President of the United States is believed to be the biggest mistake the Republican Party has made to date. Outside of electing President Nixon and having to impeach him; the Republican Party has struggled to gain diversity in their party for more than half-a-century. The leadership of the Republican Party refuses to change the projection of their party. The Republican Party continues to listen to old Party favorites from the 1940s and 1950's.
Thu, 20 Oct 2016 13:37:24 -0500My opinion probably won't make a difference in the 2016 election, but it will allow us to see another side of the process. President Barack Obama is from my city. There are over four decades of popular candidates that reside in Chicago and President Obama happens to be one of them. The other ones are Jesse Jackson Jr., Sandy Jackson (Jesse Jr.'s wife), Danny Davis, Bobby Rush, and Luis Gutierrez is the Congressman. In the case of Jesse Jr., who he is a former Congressman and his wife a former Chicago Alderman--who no longer serves. Another prominent leader and Mayor of Chicago was the first black mayor Harold Washington. He died suddenly during work and never regained consciousness. So, Chicago has offered up many political leaders; including former Senator Carol Moseley-Braun, who is the first and only black woman to win a Senate seat. Moseley-Bran, did not win her second election back in 1996 due to election funding irregularities.
Thu, 20 Oct 2016 07:04:22 -0500During the third and final 2016 Presidential Debate between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Donald J. Trump, Mr. Trump was asked if he'd honor the election if he lost. He said he wasn't sure, we shall see, and then when asked again by the moderator to qualify that statement he doubled-down and is now taking heat for it. Some, including Hillary Clinton said she thought that was "Horrifying" which I guess is a nice term only a week after Halloween when voting takes place.
Wed, 19 Oct 2016 14:14:45 -0500Wondering where the Republican Party started to go wrong. If you look at history you will have your answer. The world has watched as the Republican Party of a span of 40 years has gone downhill, based on its own accord. A total re-establishing of what they represent is in order. If there is a push to create an alt-right party then say it. Nothing is more corrupt than sneaking around and not telling the American people that you expect to become an alt-right party. It is apparent that the GOP has some explaining to do when it is all said and done this fall.
Wed, 19 Oct 2016 14:09:34 -0500While looking at the candidates that we normally allow to run for President of the United States; there is no vetting for this job. The Constitution allows for us to be 35-years-old, a naturalized citizen, and lived in the United States for14 years. That is the lowest requirements for any job I've ever seen. We claim the job of President is the highest and most important job in the land--and we don't ask for a drug test, an application, a credit report, no taxes, no background test of any kind. It's the only job in the nation; that I am aware that you do not need more scrutiny than what the Constitution allows for the President.
Wed, 19 Oct 2016 14:09:04 -0500No one would have believed it had it not been for Police Officer Frank Serpico in New York, who testified against officers in the ranks, who were seemingly more and more corrupt, and participating in criminal activity. It only took one person to come forward. In the Rodney King beating four police officers in Los Angeles decided to change their posture and go against The Blue Code of Silence in that case. Can the same thing happen in other police departments all over the country and can change become a thing of the future and effectively change the notorious cultures within our police departments--those are the questions.
Wed, 19 Oct 2016 08:34:09 -0500If you exhibit national pride in 2016, you're labeled a jingoistic hoodlum or a xenophobic barbarian. You're regarded as an unsophisticated, uneducated, artless fool clinging to a dusty print of Norman Rockwell's America. You are inwardly pitied and outwardly mocked for being so very backward, provincial and unrefined. How on earth did we get here?
Mon, 17 Oct 2016 08:50:03 -0500Doing laundry is probably the most mundane chore that man is regulated to by their wives. Every week it is my dutiful obligation to keep the sanctity of marriage that I obediently comply in venturing off to the laundromat. In keeping with those never ending honey do lists there is no respite from "when you finish could you do this.
Mon, 17 Oct 2016 07:04:27 -0500Wow, isn't this 2016 Presidential Election Campaign crazy? Hillary Clinton is running around like a man-hating feminist and her campaign is attacking Donald Trump on issues that are rather hilarious. I mean come on already, Donald Trump is the ultimate Alpha Male Billionaire boys club member - what does America want a weak pansy-ass man who has coward down to be walked over by the feminist movement? That certainly wouldn't be a leader I'd want to lead the United States of America in the age of Nuclear Terrorism. BTW - nuclear terrorism era only exists because of mistakes made by the Obama Administration, UN, IAEA, US State Department and this notion of "win their hearts and minds" by rolling over and giving them whatever they want in the Iran Nuke Deal negotiations.
Fri, 14 Oct 2016 14:06:03 -0500There is no provision in the United States Constitution that would permit the people of the United States from refusing to elect a President. Essentially, if a single vote is cast, the one who receives that one vote would become President. No one has conceived and codified into law what to do if not a single vote is cast.
Thu, 13 Oct 2016 09:51:23 -0500The articles that I read are trying to dismiss what feminism means and disparage the women who have been considered fighting for women's rights. This season of political nonsense and for the first time having a strong woman running for President of the United States is coming under attack--and I want to assess why it's happening.
Wed, 12 Oct 2016 15:24:17 -0500There are times when the media has a number of things that they focus on, and then there are others when this is not going to be the case. Instead, they can have one area that will take centre stage, so to speak.

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 10:43:27 -0500As of lately the media has portrayed much chaos, all at an immensely alarming rate, and not just local predicaments, but major events taking place globally. Everyday you hear news of "Shootings" "Riots" "Attacks" etc. Simply put, its violence affecting vast amounts of people.
Mon, 10 Oct 2016 08:51:07 -0500There are a great many intelligent American Voters who know the difference between what is right, and what is wrong; between what is moral and what is immoral; between what is deceitfully criminal and what is not. I also believe that there are a great many voters in 2016 who are ambivalent about what their choice will be between two candidates for the U.S. Presidency on November 9th. I believe that there is only one viable choice that can be made to ensure that the American doesn't go down the sewage drain any further than it has during the last eight years. It is really a basic different as clearly denoted as between daylight and pitch darkness, as between the blackness of mortal sin and the clean whiteness of the driven snow. All human beings have that precious gift from God to discern this basic difference. Read on for a further understanding of this difference.
Fri, 07 Oct 2016 07:43:09 -0500These are trying times. There is a lot of hatred and bitterness around. Don't let hate infect your heart, nor allow bitterness to ruin relationships. We are witnessing hatred on a massive scale, caused by various incidents. "We cannot let hatred spread" was a headline in a recent newspaper. A racist is a person who hates the person of another race, and can be a bigot, a bully, making insensitive jokes and jibes about others, seeking to belittle them. Jesus Christ calls disciples to be peacemakers, or reconcilers. Who says you are better than others? We hear people say, "I am proud of being a Scot" - but did we have any choice? If I hate because of culture, colour, or accent, it is because I am ignorant and in the darkness, and I am blind and cannot see.

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 10:27:11 -0500Yes, There Are Dozens - I'm Stopping At 10 I know this article is going to cause most Never-Trumpers to roll their eyes and start mumbling about principles and temperament, but someone has to take the initiative to state the obvious. I hope my message gets past the initial reaction of "not another one".
Wed, 28 Sep 2016 08:08:03 -0500Well, like 50% of the 81 million Americans who watched the first face-to-face presidential debate of the 2016 Election, I turned it off after about 25-30 minutes. Why you ask? Well, it was just nonsense, political theater in my view. One thing I can say is that Hillary Clinton described something so similar to what Obama promised he'd do to create jobs during the 2008 election. He implemented much of his promised economic plan, but to no avail.
Tue, 27 Sep 2016 07:33:42 -0500When American History is taught there is an oversight. An oversight that has universal consequences of how our government has morphed into this self serving bureaucracy that we have today. What is being purposely omitted in every history class pertains to the original 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Mon, 26 Sep 2016 08:32:48 -0500The presidential debates have always represented the game-changing moments requiring a change of tactics by the candidate trailing in the polls. And this is why underdog Donald Trump will most likely do the so-called unthinkable and transform himself into a genuine statesman to charm and endear himself to the millions of undecided voters that he needs to win on Election Day.
Tue, 20 Sep 2016 08:10:27 -0500Governing a group of people or nation is a heinous task for any individual in the community occupying a leadership position. However, it is also an honor that few in the community can have. Thus, the office is properly referred to as an 'honourable office'. The sole aim of leadership is to bring relief to the subjects while solving the challenges that they face in their everyday life. The holder of such key office is supposed to equitably use the resources in the nation or society for the advancement of the socio-economic development of the people.

The news media outlets of today can without a doubt be seen as political organizations owned by politicians that have risen up to be apart of large groups and control the political party. Many of these politically owned national media outlets donate huge amounts of cash to the political party they are owned by

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 08:22:23 -0500This 2016 presidential race demonstrates just how awful our so called democracy has become. It is proof positive that Americans have help create and sustain a delusional democracy. If Americans want to reform and fix their political system, then they should boycott this presidential election and show the world their rejection of a corrupt, dysfunctional system that now serves the rich and powerful.
Mon, 12 Sep 2016 08:17:00 -0500Election Day is near. Now springs to life, more so than normally, an exaggerated sense of importance expressed by the liberal media of African-American voting in a presidential election. This baseless and erroneous agreement among these pontificators of race and politics in this country that winning the "black vote" by overwhelming numbers is paramount to any person seeking to be elected President of the United States, and especially so in 2016. Who, except for the left wing, liberal press corps gives a damned really about how many black votes Trump will or will not get? It simply is so far down the list of priorities that it barely weighs in on any discussion of election statistics if objectively considered. That election statistic is a long-time out-of-date, over-inflated assessment of the importance placed on who convinces blacks to vote for them. Primarily, the reason for this is that blacks are only a small minority of our population-a tad over 12 % (As Jerry Seinfeld would say, "Not that there's anything wrong with that!"), largely concentrated in the urban areas of Cleveland, Detroit, New York City, etc.,... it makes as much difference as a fat rat's patooty who blacks ultimately vote for.

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 07:20:48 -0500Recently, a commentator stated that Donald Trump's Immigration Policy doesn't speak for Americans, and his vengeance against Mexicans is wrong. Wow, when I heard that I thought, this individual is completely missing the boat and obviously a hard-core left-leaning college brain-washed Hillary Clintonite who only listens to Cable TV news like CNN - or the Clinton News Network.
Fri, 09 Sep 2016 07:19:52 -0500Whereas, it is true we need to deport illegal aliens who've come to the US and committed crimes, as Donald Trump notes, we also need to get an idea of how many total illegal aliens are here, where they are, and who the heck they are - we do not know that. When President Obama took control of the Census and quickly hired it out to ACORN we got back impossible statistics proving the US Census was just a mess of bureaucracy - they were unable to count the number of illegal aliens, and ended up with other statistics that were so far out of whack with the Tiger Files (tend lines of population growth) that the data was unusable.
Thu, 08 Sep 2016 08:45:13 -0500Hillary Clinton is going to be the next U.S. president. It gives me no joy to say that. What does that mean for you and your assets/investments? That's the only thing that matters at this point
Fri, 02 Sep 2016 13:26:38 -0500Is this an hour to pause and consider and think? Why? Well, I have never seen our world in such dire straits with warfare and suffering and bloodshed and pain abounding globally. Do we need a fresh prophetic voice today to lead and direct and guide the peoples? By prophetic voice I mean a word from a man who has taken time to hear from Almighty God and who has the courage to deliver that word. If such a voice was raised up and spoke, would the peoples give heed and listen and pay attention? Or, would they tell the prophet to be quiet and go away as they did in the days of Amos? God never does anything without first revealing His plan to His servants the prophets. The prophet is a key to what God is doing.
Fri, 02 Sep 2016 07:17:48 -0500UK Independence Party leader, Nigel Farage stated on BBC, after the result was clear, that Brexit was an uprising against the big corporations and power brokers control. Thus, the victory was a 'victory for ordinary, hard-working people.' I think a great many ordinary, hard-working people voted to remain in the EU, so I believe there is less impact on this absolute part of Farage's statement. However, as we notice in the U.S. 2016 election cycle one of the main issues is corporate control and the 1% ultra wealthy have more influence on all issues, because they have money to bring the biggest clout vis-?-vis lobbyists and financial influence.
Thu, 01 Sep 2016 10:46:57 -0500There are several types of Socialism in the world, such as Centralized Socialism and Democratic Socialism which I have discussed in my previous articles. These socialistic ideas are mainly based on the aspect of humanity. In the first part of this article, I would like to discuss about Socialism in Indonesia, which is based more on a theological basis. I would call it Pancasila Socialism. What is Pancasila? Let us start with a little background about Indonesia and Pancasila.
Wed, 31 Aug 2016 08:15:21 -0500"Pass-through" companies - LLCs, partnerships, S corporations, etc. - comprise 95% of all U.S. businesses. But they're about to be smacked with ill-planned corporate tax reform...
Tue, 30 Aug 2016 15:10:09 -0500In an uncertain world where so much vile terror continues seeping into every corner of the world, where so much despicable acts are committed against man and nature, where more inequality creates so much animosity there has to be questions that has to be asked. Yet, no one has come forth asking the right questions let alone offer answers to what the hell is going on in the world today. If this past years Presidential primary season was any indication where questions should still be asked has proven the United States is...
Mon, 29 Aug 2016 10:47:41 -0500When people don't like you, they look for your dark side undermining positive things about you. So much attention on Trump more than on his opponent, which implies he is the man to beat.
Mon, 29 Aug 2016 06:57:09 -0500Speaking to a nearly all-black audience, Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton's Vice Presidential Candidate, said that Donald Trump is pushing KKK values. Wow, I cannot believe this aggressive BS, the Democrats really love to call their competitors "Racists". Now then, do we really want a President who goes around calling everyone a racist that does not politically agree with him or her? I sure don't, especially since we already have that now, and it has set race relations back generations due to President Barack Obama's political rhetoric. Let's talk.
Wed, 24 Aug 2016 11:48:03 -0500I will never understand the deep-seeded hatred that it must take to brutalize another human being; particularly when it occurs without just cause and is driven by racial injustice. I realize this is a very touchy subject no matter which side of the debate you are on. But, at the very minimum, anyone who cares anything about humanity must take a stance and make a commitment to stop the violence.
Wed, 24 Aug 2016 09:02:45 -0500In my previous articles about Socialism we've discussed about Democratic Socialism in Scandinavia; its definition, its funding and its impact to the people well-being. In this article we are going to examine some of the challenges and how would it affect its sustainability in the future.
Wed, 24 Aug 2016 06:42:17 -0500The Federal Bureau of Investigation or notorious inept FBI tells us that they cannot prove intent when it comes to the Clinton email scandal (having home servers used for official State Department business, and often top secret communication). The DOJ (Department of Justice) will not hire an independent investigation of Hillary's "pay-to-play" scandal for which there is now a ton of evidence with the recent 15,000 additional emails and Hillary Clinton's schedule for meeting with donors to the Clinton Foundation while she was Secretary of State.
Wed, 24 Aug 2016 06:40:57 -0500Every time Hillary Clinton is asked about her corrupt activities, she blames it on Right-Wing Conspiracy Theorists, but this attempt to divert attention is ridiculous. Who knows maybe she fell down and hit her head or something, as often those with damaged noggins start wearing aluminum hats and think everyone is out to get them - paranoia is a real problem in our society. Of course; "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you," which was a famous quote from Joseph Heller.
Tue, 23 Aug 2016 09:15:08 -0500In my previous article, "Is Socialism the Road to Communism?", I have mentioned Bernie Sanders who has single-handedly brought the term "democratic socialism" into contemporary American political lexicon and shaken its landscape by citing the "success" of several Scandinavian countries as the model of Socialism, which is also called the Nordic system.
Tue, 23 Aug 2016 07:43:14 -0500Socialism has become the new buzzword in recent American political lexicon. What is socialism, how many types are there in our world and how does it impact the condition of a country thus the well being of its people. Does it work or how should it work? This is the first out of my three articles about Socialism namely, "Is Socialism the road to Communism or Totalitarianism?", "Democratic Socialism" and "Pancasila Socialism" that I have written.
Tue, 23 Aug 2016 06:48:58 -0500Many people voted for Barack Obama because they believed it was proof that we in the US have conquered race-relations - unfortunately, once elected and after 8-years we see that race-relations are worse than they were in the late 70s and early 80s, basically we lost nearly 4-decades of improvement in race-relations. Now then, what might hiring Hillary Clinton as president do for male-female relations or gender relations? Personally, I like women and wouldn't want to live in a world without them, and the last thing I'd want is to have a war of the planets,...
Mon, 22 Aug 2016 10:49:30 -0500Trump. People at the other end of the spectrum are happy to hear someone express the rage they feel because their lives are not the way they would like to see them. Most of these people don't dare to share their anger or lash out at anyone who could possibly be responsible for their lives being a mess but suffer in resignation.
Mon, 22 Aug 2016 06:42:36 -0500With less than 80 days left until the 2016 Presidential Election CNN and the rest of the left-wing media is purporting high polling numbers for Hillary Clinton and stacking their commentators and interviewees with hardened pro-Clinton bias. Unfortunately, the viewers of these networks are tuning out. At first the networks assumed it was due to the 2016 RIO Olympics, but now they see it wasn't only the Olympics infringing on their previously solid viewership ratings - it's also due to the fact that their fake polls and attempts at leftist brain-washing. Lesson to the leftist networks; "you cannot fool most of the people most of the time" for long.
Fri, 19 Aug 2016 15:46:47 -0500There are some great lessons in the Presidential campaign of Donald Trump. This is a man whose brand was known in the marketplace, but more as a sideshow. He was known as financially successful, but not in a traditional way.
Fri, 19 Aug 2016 06:38:53 -0500Not long ago, I was speaking to a 'Hillary Clinton for President Supporter' with a bumper sticker on his electric car. When I questioned him and asked him about integrity when it came to the Clintons he explained to me that the conspiracy theorists on the right were making it all up about Hillary's email scandal, and Clinton Foundation - simply because the Republicans don't have any other way to beat her. Well, I just had to laugh because the Clinton's lack-of-ethics is somewhat legendary in America. Let's dig up some older issues to prove my point.
Thu, 18 Aug 2016 06:29:29 -0500Democrats won't seem to come to the realization that Hillary Clinton's mental health condition is quickly deteriorating - and one shouldn't be surprised with her campaign schedule, she isn't getting much sleep. With her previous slips and falls, mini-seizures and occasional periods of apparent disorientation - can she keep up the facade? Bill Clinton isn't in much better shape either and mind you Hillary Clinton told supporters in one of her epic speeches that Bill was going to run her economic agenda, the same man who fell asleep during Hillary's acceptance speech at the DNC. I guess being asleep on the job is better than sleeping with interns on the job?
Wed, 17 Aug 2016 08:07:36 -0500Article 370 is a temporary provision that grants special autonomous status to J&K. All the laws and provisions of the constitution of India which are applicable to other states are not applicable to Jammu and Kashmir. According to Article 370, except for defense, finance, foreign affairs, and communications, The Parliament of India needs the concurrence of state government for applying all other laws.
Tue, 16 Aug 2016 13:06:16 -0500Never before in the history of this nation has there been such a sense that something is drastically wrong in America today. Now we have a Presidential candidate that with all his faults has hit a nerve with the American public today. A nerve that resonates the growing tempest that has seeped into every fabric of American society.
Mon, 15 Aug 2016 14:14:49 -0500Voter-shaming and the overzealousness by way of enforcing of fear upon the "undecided" voter by getting us to concede to the "lesser of two evils" doesn't work. It's didn't in 2004 and it won't now. This approach stinks. It's time people sought out a better alternative approach or leave us be.
Mon, 15 Aug 2016 10:19:54 -0500Group anger can quickly ignite during emotionally-charged settings like political rallies. Why is this so and what are the root causes? Does it lead to anything productive?
Mon, 15 Aug 2016 07:04:02 -0500My friends, who are Catholic, have five daughters who have chosen very different life styles. My son-in-law is half African/American and half Italian. Today, many American families are composites of different ethnic and religious backgrounds. Yet, Donald Trump's followers rail against immigration and these modern American values. Under this assault, can America retain its values?
Mon, 15 Aug 2016 06:45:25 -0500With Hillary's medical conditions it is possible, highly possible, that if Clinton is elected president she will not be able to serve out her first-term as president, thus it would be Tim Kaine who would become Commander in Chief. Unfortunately, we don't know much about Tim Kaine, oh sure, those living in Virginia, especially Richmond VA know of him, as he was a city councilman, mayor and later governor of the state, but the rest of the country certainly hasn't heard much about him. Without Hillary Clinton's medical records being open to the public, how can the voters be sure she will even be able to serve as President of the United States.
Fri, 12 Aug 2016 11:16:48 -0500While fear rises among the great conservative base about your ability to contain words of thought, a few lessons from presidential campaign history may serve well to help advance your campaign as the 2016 Republican Nominee. This article will attempt to provide several helpful and relevant examples.
Wed, 10 Aug 2016 08:23:54 -0500One of the rare things that Clinton and Trump both agree on is bigger government spending. Austerity is out. Infrastructure spending is in, and you're going to pay for it
Tue, 09 Aug 2016 11:49:31 -0500Currently the buying Power of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transvestites nears $1.2 Trillion dollars! That surpasses the predicted $830 Billion dollars in 2014. Also, the LGBT community has played a large role as members of politics.
