We All LOSE When There's No One Willing To Speak Truth To Power

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 07:22:04 -0500

We are presently witnessing, unfortunately, how accurate the truism, is, which states, quality leaders must be willing to surround themselves with the most capable advisers and/ or inner circle, rather than, merely, a bunch of yes - men! When a President appears to be so, think - skinned, and unwilling to accept any criticism, critique, or actual, meaningful feedback, and, rather, proceeds to make statements, based on either his personal agenda, opinion, or misdirection, while referring to accepted truisms as Fake News, no one benefits! With his dependence on his family members as his closest advisers (and apparently, the only ones,...



Critical Thinking: Do Some People See The President/Prime Minister As Some Kind Of Parental Figure?

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 11:04:39 -0500

Before an election takes place, each candidate will do what they can to get people to vote for them; with their intention being to be the next president/prime minster. This is not to say that every candidate has a chance though, as it is not going to be this black and white.



Health Care: Repeal, Replace, Or Fix/Improve?

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 08:46:49 -0500

As long ago, as, during President Clinton's first - term in office, when he appointed his wife, Hillary Clinton, to create a better health care system (which subsequently, failed), there was a realization, the costs involved, for most Americans, was getting out - of - control. Some may remember, the political fights, that occurred, during that period. Little was addressed for about two decades, until President Obama, understood, and realized, there was an essential need, for a change, in this important component of American life!



Shouldn't Elected Officials SERVE Constituents?

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 07:01:37 -0500

Nearly every poll, indicates the public, regardless of their political affiliation, beliefs, or socio - economic status, has a somewhat negative perception, and opinion, of most of their political, elected officials. They witness, what appears to be a need for common sense, and actions taken, are totally, to the contrary! One would think, for example, the party with control of the Executive branch, as well as both houses of Congress, would be introducing solutions, which serves needs of their constituents, rather than focusing on politics - as - usual, which is why, there is such a negative perspective, in the...



Amitabh Bachchan As President of India

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 11:48:39 -0500

Even when the "world has become flat", as Thomas L. Friedman claimed, professional groups tend to function like well-guarded islands of an unexplored world.However, destiny may see him back on a revisit to the island of politics as India prepares to look around for a new resident of Rashtrapati Bhavan whose present occupant is due to leave soon.



Examine The CHARACTER Of A Political Leader

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 07:13:52 -0500

Anyone paying close attention to what goes on, either in Washington, D.C., their state, and/ or local community, should come, to realize, how important it is, to carefully consider, not only the rhetoric and often - empty promises, those running for office, make, but, the quality of their CHARACTER, degree of integrity, and commitment to their office, and constituents!



Demand Political Leaders SOLVE, Not Just Complain

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 07:23:10 -0500

If you are disappointed with our political leaders, either on a federal, state, and/ or local basis, you are certainly not in the minority, especially at this point in time! However, be careful to consider this, like you might look at a sporting event, because the definition of winning, while easy to recognize, in sports, is often, far less clear, when it comes to politics, and political leaders! Avoid the easier course, which is to always blame others, or the particular leader, rather than taking a large degree of the responsibility, for what ensues, and who is, in office!



What's Wrong With American POLITICS?

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 07:26:03 -0500

Nearly every public poll, whether conducted by a liberal/ progressive, moderate or conservative media, indicates, the vast majority of Americans, regardless of party affiliation, and/ or political beliefs, believes/ perceives something is wrong, and dysfunctional, in the present political system. They witness lots of rhetoric and promises, from both sides of the spectrum, but little ever gets done and/ or achieved! When a major, well - respected C.E.O., like Jamie Dimon, of Chase Bank, appears so frustrated, he recently lashed - out, against the politics - as - usual, way our politicians are behaving, and describes it as embarrassing the United States, it should indicate, there's obviously, something wrong with how we are proceeding!



Where Did Civility Go?

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 08:47:48 -0500

I'm so desperately tired of the attacks on our president. It was a choice we all had a hand in. A choice legitimately made, whether you like it or not.



The Failure Of Leadership

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 08:42:27 -0500

The dystopian condition of much of the world today the plight of humanity continues to languish in desperation praying for better times ahead. And it can't be more evident than right here in the United States. While the media continues to focus on the immediate troubles of Trump and his Russian ties lies a juggernaut of calamity ready to pounce on an unsuspecting public.



Health Insurance: It Doesn't Cost Less If It Does Cover Costs

Sat, 15 Jul 2017 10:47:00 -0500

Ever since the Affordable Care Act (also known as the ACA, or Obamacare), was passed in 2011, many, in the Republican party, have attempted to eliminate it! In fact, they submitted numerous bills, which were vetoed by President Obama, as a symbolic indication, of their opposition. While common sense would indicate, the legislation could be improved, strengthened, and made better, the attempt has been to repeal, rather than fix and tweek!



Social Media, Propaganda, and Mass Hypnosis

Sat, 15 Jul 2017 07:44:00 -0500

The manner in which political propaganda is deployed has a hypnotic effect. Now through televised and social media, masses of people are being hypnotized to believe all sorts of lies and distortions of the truth. Doesn't that qualify as a false memory syndrome?



Indian Politics: The Big Problem Is Culture and Etiquette

Thu, 13 Jul 2017 09:52:08 -0500

The biggest problem of Indian politics today is not the big money -black or white -being spent on elections or entry of anti-social elements in the political arena. It is certainly not corruption as India's highly self righteous leaders are fond of proclaiming. Far from it the biggest problem is social culture and etiquette which is declining with every passing day.



Connecting The Dots: Speculation, Wishful Thinking, Or Accurate Interpretation?

Thu, 13 Jul 2017 07:11:32 -0500

This year, we have witnessed, nearly every day, some sort of report/ reports, questioning particular behaviors, actions, motivations, influences, and/ or reasons, certain elected officials, have done something! If you review almost any of these reports, from a variety of different media, you might believe you are reading about totally different events. For example, here, in New York, I read four newspapers, daily.



What I Saw At The Time Travel And The Obamaclypse

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 13:42:48 -0500

I'm not in sync with this more "advanced," time, of millennials, false reality, lying media, politicians, pornographic Hollywood, multi-millionaire kneeling athletes, and other drugged hipsters. But, I shall never take "the blue pill:" representing security in this Matrix of group lies, illusion-and the bliss of collective ignorance. No, I choose the red pill: representing freedom, knowledge, and the real world-truth, justice, and the American way.



A House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand: The Need for American Nationalism

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 10:12:03 -0500

The new political climate has divided the United States. If we don't work together, nothing will be accomplished--nationalism is needed.



Britain Reaffirms It's Cowardly Ban On The Matchless Michael Savage

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 10:04:06 -0500

Michael "Savage" Weiner, is one of America's greatest Talk Masters. He is rated as number one in streaming, and I would certainly say, by me, number two or maybe even number one, for live talk.



Why Some Deny Climate Science - 5 Reasons

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 07:05:25 -0500

Studies indicate over 97% of all scientists, are convinced of the existence of climate change, not based on politics and/ or emotions, but rather, on science and research! However, in many recent political campaigns, we have witnessed numerous examples, of politicians denying climate change, using empty rhetoric, falsehoods, and/ or outright lies, and attempting to label climate change (often referred to Global Warming), as fake news! Since common sense appears to be rarely used, in political discussions, and/ or campaigns, this article will attempt, to briefly examine, 5 possible reasons, why anyone would want to deny the existence of this...



Political Leaders: Lies, Misstatements, Or Lack Of Understanding?

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 07:45:46 -0500

Perhaps, to a degree, we have never previously witnessed, there seems to be more deception, and/ or deceptive statements, made by those, by running for elected office, as well as holding an office. Maybe, this stems from the massive reliance, on Social Media, the number of media outlets, etc! Have you noticed how many fact - checking Websites, have popped up, especially because, we elected an individual in the last Presidential election, who appears to be somewhat uncomfortable with facts, truth, or norms!



Why Trump Was Alone at the G20 Summit

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 10:24:35 -0500

Many are suggesting that it was really the G19 Summit because the President of the United States, Donald Trump, stood alone on many issues and was snubbed by some delegates. His stance on withdrawing from the Paris Accord on Climate Change and Global Warming, is an example. It certainly did not endear him to them.



Conservatives of the World, Curate!

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 07:31:16 -0500

When you don't have time to spend reading dozens of articles each week, consider a content curation solution to save some of that time.Your time is precious and valuable. You deserve to shave some time where you can. This articles shares about a new curation resource for Conservatives



Why Elected Officials Avoid Using COMMON Sense

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 07:18:34 -0500

I've often said, it's a pity, common sense, is far too - rare! However, although it would be good, if more people proceeded, in such a manner, it's even more shameful, etc, our elected officials, often seem to proceed, in a manner, which seems to be anything, but, logical! While we often elect politicians, who simply say, what they believe, is what we want to hear, we need officials, who will adhere to the concept, of doing what is sensible, logical, and should be apparent!



Separation of Church & State Is a Wellness Issue: Upon It Rests Large Chunks of Secular Liberties

Sun, 09 Jul 2017 11:43:50 -0500

Christianity is just peachy and swell for those who appreciate, enjoy and/or otherwise find its teachings and claims comforting, inspiring or otherwise beneficial. However, the impositional agenda of the Religious Right, the evangelistic zealots who seek to impose their religion on everyone else, and the politicians who enable them to do so, are a menace. They are a hazard to the well being of Americans who do not share their enthusiasm for religion and their determination to undermine the wall of separation of church and state. What's more, there are countless little and not so small ways that the evangelistic fervor of religious devotees imperils the rights and liberties of those who do not share their spiritual enthusiasm. Many examples are provided.



Phew! The Disgusting Smell of Fraudulent Deception Is Coming From Pew Polling

Sat, 08 Jul 2017 10:47:42 -0500

The honorable practice of governing and republican government in the USA, during the last 127 years from around 1890 until the present day, has sadly been reduced and debased to what is now called politics, and politics in the 21st Century has become no more than the illusively doctored perception of the American citizen electorate. Polling companies, such Pew, Gallup, and Harris, are the pragmatic means to an end of deluding the American electorate into believing in the unbelievable by making the unbelievable seem plausible. Polling companies don't have to verify their media endorsed results, which is a sad reality. George Orwell, if he were alive today, would probably call polling a substantial tool of Big Brother to wield control over a society of human beings by making them believe what is not true. Pew has made some more of its outlandish claims recently, about the approval of homosexual marriage by a startling number of Christians, which were published to the American People as facts by the media. Read on for an explication of these claims...



Is the American Election System Democratic or a Mismatch of Confusion and Blunder?

Sat, 08 Jul 2017 08:18:52 -0500

There is no doubt that the electoral system in the USA is complex and hard for those of other Western nations to understand. The electoral college votes are one such issue that leaves most outsiders stunned. Who is responsible for it and why does it persist in modern times?



How Much Does Religion Figure in Australian Elections?

Sat, 08 Jul 2017 08:18:15 -0500

This question follows the election of Tony Abbot to the office of Prime Minister of Australia (18.9.13 to 15.9.15). It has long been suspected that the Catholic Church actively persuades its congregations on how to vote but with the 2013 election the evidence in support of it was more obvious.



How Complicated and Challenging Is the Electoral System in the United States?

Fri, 07 Jul 2017 16:02:14 -0500

As an Australian looking over the election process in the United States it appears complex and top-heavy and must be almost stifling democracy in that country. The thing that is hardest to understand concerns the electoral college votes that appear to decide the outcome of an election irrespective of the popular vote. This is what occurred in the 2016 poll that saw Donald Trump win although he did not have the majority of votes.



What's More Important For An Elected Official: Winning Or Serving Needs?

Fri, 07 Jul 2017 08:58:28 -0500

Just as the best quality, professional negotiators realize, the best results come from win - win negotiating, we need to elect public officials, who focus less on what they might consider, winning, and much more on serving the needs, goals, priorities, of constituents, in a relevant, sustainable way! Beware of any candidate, or so - called public servant who emphasizes, what he perceives as winning, Rather, this world and our society, are constantly, best - served, when one thinks more about what's needed, and the best approach, and less on personal victory! Why does one seek immediate gratification, or short...



How Good Is Democracy When Elections Are Rigged or Tampered With?

Fri, 07 Jul 2017 07:12:56 -0500

The world was stunned recently when the United States election proved that the outcome of a democratic election may not be as expected. Fast approaching 12 months ago it was keenly watched by a world stunned by the outcome. It is little wonder, therefore, that the suggestion that the election was tampered with or even rigged surfaced soon after.



Trump's Fascination With Wrestling - I Think We Are Witnessing Why Trump Was In Wrestlemania

Thu, 06 Jul 2017 13:44:21 -0500

After this latest firing of James Comey, I started pondering why Trump seems so irrational and insecure. It is rather obvious with his tweets, that he seems to be growing paranoid. When he was in Wrestlemania way back when, he entered the ring in a suit, and looked somewhat intimidating. He wasn't athletic looking, that's for sure, but he seemed as if he could take care of himself. I would have thought twice if I was going to get into a physical altercation with him. However, his presidency seems to be taking on that of a Wrestlemania script. The way he is conducting himself, seems to be a little cartoonish in its own right. Was he intimidated by Comey's height? That's something I have been pondering. There is no other reason for him to be fired, that I know of. I have always told people that his presidency would be a disaster. I could always tell he was an egomaniac. I'm still just trying to piece together how much of a egomaniac a man could possibly be, without at least showing a little bit of humbleness. We shall see.



The Ultimate Political 'Ace-Up - The-Sleeve' - Trump's Tax Returns

Thu, 06 Jul 2017 09:31:19 -0500

Being too young to remember the Monica Lewinsky scandal, and not yet born for Watergate, the current 'Trump - Russia - Tax-Return' controversy has been the most contentious political dispute in my living memory - and shows no sign of slowing down. Personally, I believe the whole conspiracy surrounding Obama's birth certificate - propagated by 'right-wing' pundits - was blown way out of proportion - but this Russia thing has reached a new level of pure partisanship and speculation. Democrats and others on the political 'Left' seem totally convinced that President Trump is essentially a clandestine Russian...



The Potential DANGER Of Electing The Wrong Political Leader

Thu, 06 Jul 2017 07:51:47 -0500

How often have you either heard someone say, or, ever, felt or stated, it doesn't really matter who gets elected? While it may, sometimes, be a case of the lesser of two evils, more often, although neither candidate may be perfect, and both may have flaws, there may be a clear and present DANGER, involved, when one of these imperfect choices is elected. Unfortunately, most voters, base their decisions on popularity, personality, or rhetoric and empty promises, rather than, on which person, may be best prepared and equipped, to effectively handle the duties and responsibilities of a specific position.



Saber Rattling: Strength, Or Impulsive?

Tue, 04 Jul 2017 21:17:01 -0500

We have all heard the adage, advising political leaders, to speak softly, but carry a big stick. However, depending upon an individual's mindset, focus, ego, beliefs, ethics, etc, there is often a somewhat, fine line, between possessing necessary strength, as opposed to behaving impulsively, without thoroughly considering potential risks, ramifications, options and alternatives. Anything a nation's or state's leader does, or fails to do, potentially has consequences, some, which may be dire.



How The World Perceives What's Going On, In The US

Mon, 03 Jul 2017 14:54:55 -0500

I am presently on my third trip, outside the US, in 2017. In February, I was in Southern Africa, in March, the Mediterranean, and presently, in Europe. In past years, when I traveled, even people in countries, with differing perspectives, respected and appreciated, what the United States represented, and stood for, and seemed to look to America, for world leadership, and being the protector of human rights, etc.



What Can't the Federal Government Claim As Power Over the People of the United States?

Sun, 02 Jul 2017 21:59:17 -0500

After reading the Declaration of Independence to an annoyed U.S. Senate, Senator Jeff Smith, portrayed by James Stuart, continued his dramatic filibuster in "Mr. Smith goes to Washington," by saying, "Now, you're not going to have a country that can make these kind of rules work, if you haven't got men that have learned to tell human rights from a punch in the nose." The honored Framers of the U.S. Constitution were those kind of men, and that's why they were vehement about establishing justice and ensuring domestic tranquility through specifying exactly what powers the federal government would have over the States, and what powers were to be reserved to the States, if not denied to them specifically by the Constitution. In the 21st Century, most of the adult electorate, under 40, have been conditioned by parents, by public schools, by a lack of regard for natural law and nature's God, and by the propaganda barrage of a socialist progressive electronic media to "not" know the difference between inalienable human rights and a punch in the nose. What fascism and tyranny "can't" the federal government illegally impose on the American People? Read on for a detailed explication...



Politics: Reality Versus Perception

Sun, 02 Jul 2017 21:45:21 -0500

Where reality and perception, meet and diverge, in our everyday lives, is often challenging to clearly identify, but when it comes to politics, the task often appears to be overwhelming! We often wonder why individuals see the same set of occurrences, yet interpret them so differently Since many people have no interest, in undergoing objective introspection, they fail to realize and recognize, how, their personal biases and prejudgments, direct them to see things through some particular set of lenses, which, may, or may not, obstruct their willingness or ability to get the whole picture.



The Great White Hope: Donald Trump

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 08:17:18 -0500

Hate him or love him, there is no doubt that Donald Trump will go down the history lane as a no-nonsense leader who knows his position very well. Donald Trump, who was first introduced to the public in 1976, came along as a shy. Although this mystery man was already known for selling sand to the Arabs, politics did not seem like a game he was interested in giving a shot then.



Politicians: Who Are They Really Serving?

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 07:39:37 -0500

It seems, we are often reminded, why politicians are often held, in such low esteem, by much of the American public! While it might seem, our public servants should, actually serve their constituents, the reality is,. very few of them, actually make that essential transformation, from politician, to statesman!



Political Facts: True, Half-Truth, Lie, Or Bold Lie?

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 07:26:07 -0500

One of the public's greatest challenges, in terms of determining, whether statements/ claims, made by any politician and/ or elected official, is factual, or not, and learning how to differentiate between these, is to be able to proceed, consistently, in a realistic, fact - based manner! Perhaps more so than at any previous time (especially in recent memory), we have heard one successful candidate constantly label anything which might either disagree with him, or criticize him, as fake news. It might be interesting to note, however, the fact - checking websites, have determined, this same candidate (as well as now,...



Sedition, Treason and Threatening the President

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 21:37:25 -0500

We live in unprecedented times. There exists an organized effort to unseat a sitting President and interrupt and overthrow our government. Examples abound in the news every day. Examples of people committing sedition, treason and threatening our President. All violations of Federal Law. Why is there no action?



Combatting Inequality Supervenes National Interest

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 10:39:48 -0500

In the USA, the traditional rivalry between democrats and republicans seems to have reached a new and intense phase in which we hear repeated accusations that party interests are being put before the national interest. President Donald Trump is so obsessed with avoiding charges of collusion that the real threat of Russian interference in elections is being ignored. At the same time, in the UK, Theresa May faces the same accusation of putting party interests first for making a desperate bid to retain power through a deal with the highly partisan Northern Ireland DUP. In the past, it was always supposed that however strong party allegiances might be, in a national emergency all politicians would come together and act in the national interest. That is no longer the case, and one must wonder what has brought this about.



The Apple Sauce Of Politics

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 08:14:40 -0500

If you want something to take seriously, politics is not the thing to take seriously. The opposite of politics, which is a spirituality that means genuine business and honesty is. With that said, Will Rogers once said that "politics is apple sauce, apple core and all." My understanding about that truth and reality comes down to once we get serious, we advance. Without that seriousness though, we play politics in everything.



You Say You're A Public Servant: Who Do You Owe Allegiance To? Your 5 Options

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...



Beware When Politicians Speak Of Change: 5 Things To Consider

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! While quality leaders realize there is a need for maintaining relevance, and continuously evolving, the vast majority of politicians, pursue a personal agenda, avoid personal responsibility, and look for scapegoats!



Lie To Me Twice, SHAME On Me

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 07:56:25 -0500

Have you learned from the adage, Lie to me once, shame on you. Lie to me twice, shame on me? While most people state, they have, in reality, when it comes to politics, they often, appear to proceed, with a degree of naivete, and, vote emotionally.



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! It is important to differentiate between, when a leak is, simply, an invasion of privacy, as opposed to providing essential, relevant information, which might impact our nation, etc.



I Don't Want To Be Involved In Politics

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 08:18:03 -0500

I have no ambition at all to be involved in politics. I feel like I have been forced into getting involved now and it's important to each one of us for the same reason.



A Time for Patriotism, Not Nationalism

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 07:57:49 -0500

In a campaign to "Make America Great Again," Donald Trump promoted a return to American nationalism. Actions in the first months of the Trump presidency show that patriotism is needed more than nationalism -- patriotism that responds to a foreign attack to protect national security.



Time for a Uniform Civil Code?

Sat, 17 Jun 2017 13:35:28 -0500

A Uniform Civil Code will be the way to go for a pluralist country like India. It will safeguard the Constitutional Rights of citizens irrespective of caste, race, community and religion.



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?



Does Someone Need To Have A Short-Term Memory In Order to Vote For A Certain Party/Politician?

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 11:09:32 -0500

There are a number of countries around the world that have a general election every few years; that is, of course, unless a snap election takes place. When an election take place, the general public will have the chance to vote for part that they believe will lead the country in the right way.



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.



The Morality of Liberty

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 10:08:50 -0500

Let's explore the beauty inside of free and non dictated morality. We will take a look at the beauty of the liberty of morality. Why is it better to be tolerant? Why should we never use government authority to force our preferences or definitions upon another?



Has the Mainstream Media Discreetly Replaced Your Congress & Senators?

Sun, 11 Jun 2017 09:27:07 -0500

One of the most powerful things you can do when exercising your constitutional rights as a U.S. citizen is hold your elected officials accountable. Don't allow a biased mainstream media to ask the policy related questions you should be asking your Congress and Senator's.



May the "Source" Be With You

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!

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.

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?

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...

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.
