Fri, 02 Dec 2016 08:14:46 -0600The article deals with the harsh life of a construction worker. Further, it tries to explain their aspirations and how they cope with it in everyday life.
Fri, 02 Dec 2016 07:26:59 -0600A lion prowled in a field occupied by four bulls. He repeatedly tried to attack them but to no avail. Whenever the lion approached, they turned their tails to one another - so from whichever direction he advanced, he was met by their horns. However, one day a quarrel broke out amongst the bulls, and each went off to pasture alone in a separate corner of the field. Soon after the lion charged, killing all four bulls one by one.
Mon, 28 Nov 2016 10:18:45 -0600Set aside your feelings for Trump's broader agenda. Focus on his intentions for privacy and free speech. He has never expressed interest in protecting civil liberties. In fact, it's quite the opposite...
Wed, 23 Nov 2016 08:36:39 -0600The wine press is full of people claiming themselves to be prophets nowadays and they gender a large following of believers in their camps, however, the clear majority of these self-proclaimed prophets and futurists are frauds and fakes whose only purpose is to milk the gullible out of their money. It is normal for a person to want to feel special, to have a sense that he or she is above the fold, to believe that they are in possession of exceptional knowledge and gifts that few other people are endowed with. So, along with greed, personal recognition...
Mon, 21 Nov 2016 15:07:39 -0600Some months back; after listening to Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, and their supporters; I saw the coming election as one that would have to deal with the angry citizens who felt that their government had let them down. While I didn't think I had anything in common with Trump or Clinton-I voted for Sanders in the primaries and a third party in the election-I was forced to reevaluate Trump when he won the election. Although I don't like the man, I did see some positives in his agenda.
Mon, 21 Nov 2016 11:14:02 -0600As the Internet of Things takes over, it will do more than provide convenience. It promises to steal nearly all existing jobs. Without change, this is bad news all around for pretty much all of us.
Fri, 18 Nov 2016 07:20:11 -0600It was about three am on Wednesday morning, November 9, 2016, when the media pundits could hold off no longer. They had to award--so reluctantly and so painfully that it shown on their anguished faces--the winner of the presidential election to their long-derided, openly ridiculed, and often butt of their brain-addled humor and cruel jokes, Republican nominee Donald Trump. They could no longer pretend a miracle was in store for their beloved candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton. No, the miracle had already taken place hours earlier, perhaps even as early as nine pm when Donald Trump was racking up state after state in his red column. The map of the United States began to look as if something had been butchered on it. In effect, that is precisely what happened. Trump had slowly, painfully--but surely--slaughtered the hopes and aspirations of the supposed shoo-in Hillary Clinton.
Tue, 15 Nov 2016 10:27:14 -0600The World is gifted with two current world leaders who are bent on making headlines. One is Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India and the other is Rodrigo Duterte, the President of The Philippines.
Thu, 10 Nov 2016 15:37:04 -0600The irksome Presidential election is finally over, so Americans should be relieved to get back to normal. Unfortunately, another long annoyance is upon us now, the annual pains that come along with Christmas. I am not referring to the task of shopping in crowded stores, nor the chore of wrapping gifts, nor the inevitable broadcast of Jimmy Stewart in It's a Wonderful Life or the non stop airing of Darren McGavin in A Christmas Story on cable channel TBS.
Tue, 08 Nov 2016 07:09:20 -0600I believe that climate does change and that, over the course of the history of the earth, we have had times of cooling and times of warming. We are currently in a time of warming - and I submit to you this explanation for that warming.
Mon, 07 Nov 2016 11:25:40 -0600A movie from fifty years ago can reflect the dilemma we find ourselves and speak to our better nature. There are some old movies that hit right to the heart of what we go through as a country. The writer's and filmmakers get it right most of the time. In 1967, the country was faced with racial tensions, and what type of country we wanted for our children. Because that's who we vote for until our kids can go to the polls on their own. Anyway, this movie just made me think of what we thought and how we powered on even though the person we might have wanted in the White House was not there to cure our every need. The baby-boomers; which I am a portion of, really had to face many obstacles and difficult decisions back then. Would I change anything; some things, but the people I see and walk amongst every day are like me, trying to make it in a diverse world that is ever changing. I confess it ain't easy, but it beats the alternative. Which is the opposite of being tolerant and accepting. It's not a good look.
Fri, 04 Nov 2016 13:49:41 -0500While most people are passive, and some are aggressive in their approach to everything, including conversation, others are manipulative. My theory is that the passive folks are evenly split between being happy or being unfulfilled. The aggressive ones either swim in self-induced success or they drown in defeat. The manipulative folks are having fun. They play a game that few recognize. They are cunning, devious, and bear watching constantly.
Wed, 02 Nov 2016 09:29:00 -0500From a classical criminological perspective, everyone is responsible for everything they think, say and do. There are no excuses for maladaptive behaviors perpetrated upon others. People premeditate by way of conscious choices. Humans are skilled at their own deception, in every contrivance to defraud, con and injure other persons. Fully capable of being dangerously predatory, exploitive and malevolent creatures, with clever calculation and malice aforethought, the human species can be quite insidious. By way of cunning desire and malevolent intent, everyone has the capacity to selfishly exploit any others, in order to get his or her way in every hedonistic manner imaginable. Where people are concerned, nothing has changed in the history of human nature. Within this conception of the classic framework, the theoretical framework asserts the absolute necessity for intellectual responsibility, moral ascendancy and ethical accountability.
Wed, 02 Nov 2016 08:23:38 -0500I don't know if the Millennials have thought about what their generation could accomplish after the election of 2016. I mean, if they want to keep Planned Parenthood alive; they are going to have to fight the powers to be in order to keep the organization. They also have a duty to change the television broadcasting outlets to empower women. As it stands right now, women do not have a seat of power at the discussion table in broadcast news. Women are 'television arm candy' and that needs to change. Millennials have a huge responsibility to make a difference for women. How can we continue into garner media coverage that is biased against women every step of the way? We have to think of ourselves as a force in the world. Not coward down because a man doesn't like the way we look when we seek higher office. This is a big undertaking that can be rectified and online news and broadcast news has to have more women at the discussion table going forward.

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 12:49:46 -0500Yesterday, mid-morning, I emerged from a take-out restaurant towards a parking lot, walking through the seating area of the outdoor dining plaza. There, I encountered a heated stand up exchange of words between two men.
Wed, 26 Oct 2016 08:48:42 -0500There is a creepy phenomenon that has been prevalent in Christian influenced societies for centuries and that is the boastful assertion by an assortment of many who claim themselves to be the descendants of a vague group of people known as Hebrews and Israelites. The core of this zeal to be identified as Hebrews and Israelites is the stipulation in the Christian Bible that the Israelites are god's chosen people who have been set apart from all other people that inhabit the planet Earth to receive special favors and blessings, and by default, rule over others.
Mon, 24 Oct 2016 14:16:14 -0500After the debates, I usually will look at what's being talked about on social media. The women really took what Donald J. Trump said as a zinger that has empowered them, as did the "deal me in," statement made by Mrs. Clinton. Some of the Tweeter feeds had me deliriously joyful about how women feel about themselves. In other words, when the 'nasty woman' comment was said, women everywhere went high when he went low. There are a few chuckles on the Tweeter feed today.

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 19:13:50 -0500The future human-society would be dominated by the influence of technology and its offshoots. And in a world which would become increasingly impersonal, Social Intelligence would be the secret sauce for interpersonal 'success and fulfillment'.
Thu, 20 Oct 2016 13:37:18 -0500This year, 2016 politics is the meanest, nastiest, and outrageous I've ever seen. I have been voting since the 1980's and this is the election of all elections. The players are not well liked and we are expected to make a choice from the two main candidates. No wonder there are people that are confused and haven't made up their minds. This process is not going to be easy by any means. I tell people to read. Do not rely on the Internet solely. Read books that have been written about the candidates or by the candidates themselves. It will give a better view of what they have been pursuing and community service they have accomplished in their lives.
Thu, 20 Oct 2016 10:33:47 -0500Perhaps it may or not be wise to toss the entire Bible just because one does not believe that there is a god entity, or if there is a god that the Bible is not the inerrant words of this being, or simply because one believes that the Bible is just another form of mythology, or is only a bunch of made up stories written by a scallywag people that are commonly known as modern day Jews that are claiming to be Hebrews, whatever Hebrews are. Perhaps it's not wise to kiss and tell, or spend your time and energy in gossiping, or to expect that some else should pay your bills, or eating fatty foods when you are already topping the scale. There are many things in this dustbowl that we call physical life to consider in an effort to make a beneficial decision as to the manner in which we shall live it.
Tue, 18 Oct 2016 13:19:30 -0500I was inspired to pen this article based on my observations at workplace. However, I am optimistic that the story that is about to be narrated is not exclusive to me alone but also cuts across everyone's dilemma in sustaining a living. I have used animals as my main players in my observations.
Tue, 18 Oct 2016 09:51:49 -0500I have not yet made a comment on any YouTube video that I have watched but I have attempted to read a number of them, which I have found to be a very annoying and frustrating undertaking, to say the least. The majority of people that submit a comment about a particular video do not use proper grammar, letter spacing techniques, sentence structure, or any elementary school level writing skills that will make their comments readable. As a result of this lack of writing skills by the vast majority of YouTube video commenters I very seldom read them.
Mon, 17 Oct 2016 14:59:42 -0500It is common knowledge that if a person is prescribed or purchase an over the counter medication to treat an illness that an average of nine more problematic health symptoms will result from taking that medication. These unwanted results of taking medications are quaintly called side effects. The term side effects sound very congenial and harmless as these two words roll blissfully from the tongue but the implications of those words may be psychologically and physiologically devastating and may even produce death on occasions for the user.
Mon, 17 Oct 2016 13:33:28 -0500A popular debate conducted by evolutionists and creationists is the matter of how old is time and matter. The evolutionists subscribe the age of time and matter as being in the billions of years old range, whereas, the creationists subscribe to an age range of time and matter of only being thousands of years. Being a layperson I cannot contribute anything to this debate on an academic or Biblical scholarly level but I do have a personal opinion on the topic.
Mon, 17 Oct 2016 13:24:42 -0500As one views the annuals of human history for the past one thousand or so years there is an obvious great discrepancy in the creativeness and inventiveness of so-called black people opposed to people of European descent and Orientals, why is this? Barring psychological and physiological defects of the brain, cognitive neuropsychologist has found no distinction between how the human brain is structured and how it performs its various functions between the different groups of people on planet Earth. So if brain structure and how it performs its various functions is not the culprit for this discrepancy in inventiveness between so-called black people and the above-mentioned groups, then what is it?
Mon, 17 Oct 2016 13:23:57 -0500For the past number of decades, the commercial marketing trend has been the commercializing of hybrid children in their ads. This is to say that if there is a so-called black male or female or couple in the ad there is usually a hybrid child associated with them. This may look innocent enough at first glance until you look deeper into the embedded message that it conveys to darker skinned children and even dark-skinned adults. This camouflaged message is saying that acceptance and beauty are in the eyes of the beholder and that the beholder of reference and relevance is white.
Wed, 12 Oct 2016 09:23:37 -0500Welcome every problem as an opportunity. We need to make each moment as the best thing that ever happened to us. The more difficult the problem is, the greater the challenge in working it out.
Mon, 10 Oct 2016 10:31:31 -0500There are many theories and assumptions as to who or what the antichrist is. It is evident by scripture that the antichrist consists of two distinct genera, one being both male and female human beings who do not believe that there is a God and that a character named Jesus is the anointed one of God who will redeem all creation back into the fold of God. These are not necessarily evil or wicked people but people who hold to a belief system that is "Instead (anti)" of God and the so-called Christ
Mon, 10 Oct 2016 10:31:03 -0500The origin of the popular Rapture doctrine was originated by a mentally ill woman by the name of Margaret McDonnell who was born in Port Glasgow, Scotland in 1815 and died in 1840. At this time, many preachers in Scotland believed that the world's problems could be effectively addressed by the use of supernatural gifts from the Holy Spirit.

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 09:04:31 -0500The workplace has it all. It has democrats, communists, fascists, dictators, authoritarians, fence-sitters, silent protesters and the real workers who could verify every bit of their perspiration was earned through hard work, minus apple polishing. According to Farlex free dictionary, 'apple polishing' is the seeking of favour or favours through flattery and obsequiousness.

Thu, 06 Oct 2016 08:23:44 -0500Sexual immorality is another sin that attracts generational curses. God made it clear that He hates it and will not hesitate to curse anybody that involves in it. He allows sexual relationship only between a husband and his wife. Anything outside of this amounts to immorality and will not go unpunished. Sexual immorality is one of the strategies of the enemy to destroy man, his relationship with his creator, and also to totally destroy God's eternal plan.
Thu, 06 Oct 2016 07:07:13 -0500Don't you find it ironic that when Democrat Vice Presidential Candidates debate, that the incumbent team always defends the record of the status quo, no matter how bad? Well, it certainly happened with Joe Biden defending the Obama Administration's first term, and now we have the VP candidate Tim Kaine who is running with the notorious Hillary Clinton of the Clinton Political Dynasty telling us that Mrs. Clinton as Secretary of State negotiated the Iran Nuke Deal (don't tell me another gold-standard treaty) and stopped Iran from getting nuclear weapons? What the hell is he talking about?
Tue, 04 Oct 2016 09:39:50 -0500According to the current mainstream "knowledge" that is being taught using every communication medium available. Long, long, and even very long ago single cell microorganisms ruled the world, and then a species called Phyla seized the mastery of the earth from them but was subsequently ousted as the masters of the planet by a species called Trilobites. These Trilobites eventually evolved into various types of small land, air, and water creatures. As this peculiar story continued to unfold, the Trilobites evolved from small to very large land, air, and water creatures that are now referred to as Dinosaurs (Synapsid and Archosaurs).
Tue, 04 Oct 2016 09:39:24 -0500There is absolutely no distinction between a wild savage wearing a white pillowcase over his head and his barbarian counterpart who's wearing a police badge. No one should be surprised that this is the situation concerning the history of the United States because long before the United States was even conceived Western Europeans instigated their race war against all peoples of color, especially blacks, when they began coming out of Europe in significant numbers.
Mon, 03 Oct 2016 08:39:05 -0500Sometimes, we can decipher the mystery of a modern occurrence by finding and studying a similar event in human history. The Biblical book of Ecclesiastes contains a passage that states, "What has been will be again. What has been done will be done again. There is nothing new under the sun."
Sun, 02 Oct 2016 11:51:53 -0500It used to be that there was dialogue and discussion at the elite colleges and universities, but that is very rare these days. Academia being neutral on opinions and different views - not hardly. Maybe at one time back in the days of the geological society, but today, it's an unwritten rule to toe-the-line in the prescribed areas of thought.
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 08:22:13 -0500Reparations. The UN recently issued a new report telling the United States they owe reparations to citizens of African descent for the terrorist activities perpetrated upon them by white citizens since our founding right up to today. Is the UN Human Rights Commission really the stellar group to issue such a finding. What about other groups? Do Native Americans owe reparations to other Native Americans they terrorized. How about Hitler? How about Stalin and Mao? The New World Order has some interesting ideas to bring down America.
Wed, 28 Sep 2016 08:50:18 -0500In the last episode, in the eternal hunt for leadership, the figure of speech of "stupid" is descriptive about those who purposely persist in being unevolved, uncreative and selfish by exhibition of maladaptive behaviors. They come in all forms and styles, and the perceptive leader understands the nature of such things. Such is the devolution and the demise of the human species. A failure to ascend to a higher life form pervades the history of humanity. Many will try to create entities of assorted kinds to assert the arrogance of their self-image. Not unlike the monster created by the mad scientist of so many stories, the grotesque selfishness haunts human habitats.
Mon, 26 Sep 2016 10:21:04 -0500When you hear of the many theories propagated by conspiracy theorist on a wide range of topics one cannot help but wonder how can a tiny clique of so-called elites control the modern world systems? After watching many videos and hearing numerous radio programs discussing many diverse topics related to this subject one can reach one conclusion about how a tiny group of people can control the world systems, and this one, but not the only conclusion of how this could happen, is that people will believe anything.

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 09:26:20 -0500Not too long ago I went to a local DMV to conduct some routine business. As I took a seat waiting for my number to be called a commotion erupted between two or more women that were there. One of the women involved in this altercation was exceedingly loud and vulgar as she did not hesitate to unleash her obscene foul-mouthed vocabulary out in the open for everyone in the building to hear. Whatever this was, it even went so far as to say that it will kick everyone's ass in the building. The policewoman that was on duty made every effort to charm the situation but this one ill-mannered imbecile refused to cooperate.
Thu, 22 Sep 2016 13:43:27 -0500Indonesian Governor Basuki T.Purnama, also known as Ahok, has a different understanding about the meaning of the term Social Justice. According to him Social Justice is not a mere act of providing welfare but more of providing an equal playing field and opportunity.
Thu, 22 Sep 2016 09:11:36 -0500Fortifying ropes and hands of solidarity are ever extended to rescue a drowning people from the murky waters and silly antics of themselves. We as a people have inclined ourselves to be brainwashed into believing that we are our enemy by those who look down upon and make fun of us. We have so accepted this calculated disinformation about ourselves marketed to us by dedicated thieves and murders that we live every moment of our lives acting it out on each other. You see it every day and in countless ways how we have idiotically become our major stumbling blocks to success and achievements by allowing other people to define us.
Thu, 22 Sep 2016 09:10:16 -0500Many different people claim themselves as being the authentic Israelite's of the Bible. You have some saying that the Anglo-Saxons (White people of the United States of America and Great Britain) are the ten lost tribes of the kingdom of Israel.
Wed, 21 Sep 2016 08:16:13 -0500What is more important, a determined personal quest for self-evolving transformation to a higher state of enlightened differentiation? And, in the process, that is to suggest profound progress, for achieving a wiser and mature state of ascendency? With that, what about the willful determination, experiencing the pains and pleasures of life, to change oneself into a better version of the original self? Or, would it be more productive to be non-productive, relishing in the limited perspective of a primordial regression in devolving subservience? Not only that, how about just simply being satisfied with being stupid, that is, making no progress of thought over a very limited lifetime?
Tue, 20 Sep 2016 08:34:16 -0500There are certain common terms that are in use to describe ethnicity and place of origin that I am reluctant to apply within this article because one; "Black people", is all-encompassing and does not apply to the whole. There are "Black People", however, they are in the minority as the majority of so-called "Black People" are actually different shades of brown. The other term that I am reluctant to use is "Africa" or "African" because "Africa" is an Indo-European derivative of the Ancient Egyptian word "Afru-ika" or "Motherland" as the name of the Continent as a whole with "Nagau" or "Punt" denoting East "Afru-ika".
Tue, 20 Sep 2016 08:32:41 -0500In the wake of catastrophes and calamities, night has finally transformed into day.

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 08:18:18 -0500Generational Curses are real, very real. Yes, some believe in it and others do not, but this has in no way changed or diminished the effects of these on the individuals, families and groups groaning under this terrible, biting, unseen spiritual hindrances. The truth is that curses are real and generational curses are very real. Even the people who initially do not accept this fact, later wake up to the reality that it looks like an unseen limitation, hindrance, spiritual mines are laid on their way each time they try to attain their destinies or on their march to their breakthrough. Or even at what could be seen as their success, they still find inexplicable happenings around them. These may include sudden and untimely deaths in the family, persistent failure and lack of breakthrough, constant urge to commit suicide, crime, etc, marriage failures, and generational shame backwardness, near-success syndrome, strange or generational sicknesses, hearing strange voices, unhappiness, shame and even mysterious fear, etc.

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 09:35:32 -0500Some have chastised Donald Trump for suggesting a "great wall" be built along the border with Mexico, even though in many common crossing locations there is already a pretty secure fence. Some suggest that Trump is a racist for wanting to protect our borders, and yet, the first priority of our government is to protect the American People. Mr. Trump is correct when he states we need to know who is coming into our country and why, and no country allows people to sneak in and start living in their country without the government knowing who they are. Let's talk, because there is a huge difference between immigration and illegal immigration and it isn't racist to discuss the differences.
Fri, 09 Sep 2016 07:23:11 -0500There has been quite a lot of talk lately around the world about Global Government Corruption, in fact, we have a little of that going on here at home, and with our own Diplomacy Teams it seems. Yes, I am speaking of Hillary Clinton's email scandal and what we've learned about the activities of the Clinton Foundation. When recently discussing this, I noted how unfortunate it was that the leftists and socialists were behind so many of these corruption scandals - and encountered a debating point from a Canadian Citizen who likes Hillary Clinton and doesn't like Trump. No he can't vote here, but let's debate his points of contention shall we?
Fri, 09 Sep 2016 07:21:25 -0500It is quite amazing the number of times the left-wing media and Democrat Politicians call Donald Trump a racist. They actually have the Hispanic Population of the US believing that Trump hates Hispanics, which is simply untrue. The left is busy calling Donald Trump 'Hitler-Like' and trying to get that to stick. The left is re-branding their opponent, this is just Politics 101, but the followers of the Democrats don't seem to understand the reality.

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 11:04:17 -0500People will always find the bad in you no matter what the truth is, if you get harassed by a man on road, people will come pointing fingers at your that it was your fault, no one would care about your dignity as they think, a woman's dignity lies somewhere between her outlook and the way she carries herself. A woman loses her self esteem and dignity in the process of growing up and pretending to be a symbol of purity, family pride and a role model of millions. Who said that? Why can't a woman live for herself and be her own judge?

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 10:18:25 -0500Poverty does not belong to you or I, it is fortuitous. Consider a rabbit being born on a farm owned by an avid rabbit hunter. We must break the invisible socioeconomic containers within which the masses of humanity are divided & contained. We must stop the few who seek to frame our thoughts. A few of us human beings understand the boxes we are confined too and some few of those few use it to manipulate humankind for personal gain.

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 09:22:52 -0500The entire premise of the ancient alien theory is that the people of old were too dumb and too stupid to be creative and inventive of their own volition. Those people who created their civilizations eons before the white man entered the world stage obviously needed the assist of beings from outer space to perform skilled labor and elaborate planning. This is the thesis of the ancient alien theory in a nutshell.

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 09:53:27 -0500In a society that praises individualism, are we really so keen on having different opinions or is personal choice just an illusion? Are we willing to conform to social norms just to fit in?
Wed, 24 Aug 2016 06:43:05 -0500Four More Years - that's what Hillary Clinton promised us during the DNC meeting, telling us she would build upon all that the Obama Administration had accomplished? Hmm? You mean like an economy that cannot grow faster than 1.2% to 1.8% per year nearly 8-years after he took office? Or maybe she means his great accomplishment with ObamaCare, aka The Affordable (Unaffordable) Healthcare Act? Okay so, maybe she was referring to that second one. If so, she plans on building upon that to help the American People.
Tue, 23 Aug 2016 15:38:51 -0500Price discovery. Never heard the term? Remember it, because it explains the logic-defying melt-up the market is going through right now.
Tue, 23 Aug 2016 14:52:01 -0500Under the guise of asset forfeiture, DEA agents routinely spy on our travel plans so they can steal our money. It's all in the name of the pointless "war on drugs."
Tue, 23 Aug 2016 13:19:51 -0500I have a secret to reveal that I have been carrying for many years, and my secret is this. I was a black Muslim Nazi for the FBI. Now, what I have just told you is absolutely false, but it's true. Wait a minute, how can what I have just divulged be both false and true?
Tue, 23 Aug 2016 08:06:04 -0500Our lives can change in a matter of moments. How will you react? More importantly, how will you respond to those whose lives are changed forever?
Tue, 23 Aug 2016 07:14:47 -0500People who have to steal another people's heritage to have an identity are like dry rot on the soles of the feet of humanity. They are like a fallen twig flowing down a stream and coming to rest inside of a mud puddle of their own making. All of the evidence clearly proves that these people are living a lie but they choose to continue doing so because to do otherwise, is to admit that they are scavengers that rummage through rich foliage in a futile search for personal identity.
Tue, 23 Aug 2016 06:48:07 -0500One huge issue in publicly funded science grants in the US is that much of the public funds are designated and directed by the executive branch of our government. These monies are also approved and directed by Congress, but how many of these politicians know anything about science? Very few actually, worse, politicians at this level are all about maintaining power and that means rewarding those who got them there - and/or are beholden to the political leanings of their parties. Let me explain.
Fri, 19 Aug 2016 06:42:33 -0500The Democrats call anyone questioning the 'pay-to-play' scandal at the Clinton Foundation just another conspiracy theory from rogue Republicans and claim the Clinton Foundation does nothing but great things for humanity under Bill and Hillary's excellent leadership. Okay so, let's all that is true. If that is the case, then the starving children of the world will lose all those wonderful funds 'if' Hillary is elected president in 2016. I have a solution, simply don't elect her president and allow her and her husband to continue their very important work. Why ruin good people by forcing them into the limelight and giving their ego's the power they desire, that's just another Greek Tragedy, we know how those stories always end.

The outcome of this conversation was their meeting with the late Madiba Nelson Mandela where they sold the idea of a group of global elders to tackle some of the world's intractable crisis.

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 07:35:39 -0500Last year was a difficult year for Favour, a male LGBT Nigerian who had to change his surname for safety reasons. He and his partner were brutally assaulted by blood thirsty homophobes. The injuries inflicted on the hapless partner led to his untimely death and Favour had to flee to Wales so that the most fundamental of his human rights - right to life could be guaranteed to him.
Mon, 15 Aug 2016 07:34:33 -0500It is no news that Uganda is one of the world's most homophobic nations. It once tinkered with the idea of the LGBT community being afflicted with the death penalty when David Bahati, an MP sponsored a bill that was designed to repeat the Gestapo episode in the East African country. There is the conundrum of the unresolved murder of David Kato whose murder was clearly because of his minority sexual orientation.
Mon, 15 Aug 2016 06:42:02 -0500The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio have been shadowed by rulings of steroid and banned substance use. Russia had well over half of their Olympic athletes barred from competing in these Olympic Games. Even athletes once caught for enhancement compounds in their blood, and now clean, after being banned from their sports for years are often not even considered "real winners" when they do medal. There seems to be no redemption in the Olympics, and it has gotten stricter for each games. Now then, with all the emphasis on ethics and backlash against any form of cheating, crossing the line, or attempt to cover-up the crime - one has to ask, why is the Hillary Clinton Campaign running ads during these 2016 Olympics?
Thu, 11 Aug 2016 11:38:46 -0500Europe is besieged by a great exodus from the Muslim lands from the arc of the Mediterranean Sea to the Middle East and even as far as Pakistan. This is mass migration and follows the famous pull and push theory. Such migrations have taken place throughout history.
Thu, 11 Aug 2016 07:24:46 -0500Rather quotes Lincoln, how noble, but instead of going to where all the unrest started, he goes to the opposite end: the horrific violence is here, where did it start? With Obama, and where is it going, with Hillary. Can there be cohesion and peace with Hillary? The issues are getting sidetracked, but personal hits by both sides, and Mr. Rather sees only "We can't let it that happen again." I suppose inferring Trump again, so you know he's biased. Quoting a Republican to rupture a republican. But the name of the game is go around in a circle and don't answer the deep questions, but turn the question into a question, or answer with a statement-question, but whatever you do, no not bring up, whatever Hillary will not be able to wiggle out of. To be honest, I'm chagrinned Mr. Rather has stooped so low in journalism.
Wed, 10 Aug 2016 09:54:01 -0500Anti-thinking refers to the emotion-stimulated process, absent factual evidence, fear animated thinking by which one preserves a false self-serving view of the world. The result is a contrived and persistent fabrication of "cause and effect" results, based on a lack of evidence to substantiate viability.

Tue, 09 Aug 2016 10:05:19 -0500In this 21st century, our world faces two major issues, global warming and terrorism. Global warming is the average increase in temperature of the atmosphere near the Earth's surface generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, CFCs and other pollutants, mostly as a result by man's selfish indulgence in comfort living. Terrorism, on the other hand, is an act of terror, an act of destruction of lives and properties carried out mercilessly by people who are in false self-believe mode that their struggles are sanctioned by their religious doctrines that warrant them to react...
Mon, 08 Aug 2016 09:10:12 -0500One of the most disturbing facts of the violent and politically charged summer we have been experiencing has nothing to do with facts at all. It's that whatever people see on television or read in a headline, they are taking as reality.
Mon, 08 Aug 2016 07:46:16 -0500Delight in diversity; a many splendid rainbow of cultures and peoples to know or discover. Diversify your acceptance and understanding of people that speak, cook, dress and live differently than you do. Diversity is like a rainbow with many different colors that although they appear different, when blended together make the most magnificent rainbow in the sky and when viewed in a loving way, from high above the earth, can be seen as beautiful hue featuring me and you and our differences, we become one beautiful wonder of similarity, suddenly color distinction disappears.

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 06:38:27 -0500At our think tank we reviewed all of the 2016 UN's IPCC research papers presented at the summit. Still, at the summit it was less about the science and more about how to change the narrative to get more people on board. In other words, if you can't steam roller the idea or baffle them with BS, change the storyline to get all the stragglers on board and overcome the skeptics.
Thu, 04 Aug 2016 10:24:30 -0500Currently, the world system is dominated by Europeans, but the Chinese are making a strong bid to eclipse the Europeans as the new controllers of the world system.

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 08:40:16 -0500What we are led to believe as "truth" in America is no different than what the Soviets were led to believe. But only by disengaging will you get the facts to defend investment decisions.
Wed, 03 Aug 2016 10:06:54 -0500Obama once said, "Elections have consequences." But most Americans vote based on wish fulfillment rather than careful consideration. Be careful what you wish for.
