Trump - Confusing Signals: 5 Examples

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 07:16:08 -0600

Leading any nation, especially one, as diverse, ethnically, racially, and politically, as the United States, is challenging, under any circumstances, and especially so, in the present political climate! While there are many things, which are different about the way, Donald J. Trump, perceives and conceives of the position, and represents this nation, perhaps the most troubling, to some of us, is how he often articulates confusing signals, on an almost- daily, basis.

Whether one is a supporter of our current President, or opposes his approaches and policies, it is important to agree, Donald J. Trump, has certainly, in his first year, approached and performed his position, significantly differently, than any of his predecessors, in recent memory!

Nearly everyone, whether they support, or oppose, the policies, etc, of President Donald Trump, realize and recognize, we have never witnessed, any previous occupant of the office, who used the rhetoric, he has consistently articulated!

Fact - checkers state, Mr.

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 09:27:34 -0600

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 09:19:23 -0600

In today's political climate, there appears to be a greater focus on what would be good for people who belong to a particular gender, race, religion or sexual orientation. As a result of this, what would benefit people in general no longer has the same level of importance.



Laziness As a Misnomer

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 08:43:05 -0600

A mainstay of conservative thought holds that those who are too lazy to better themselves do not deserve consideration. It's a mentality that reflects an ignorance of human behavior, an apparent lack of empathy toward others, and a worldview that includes selfish thinking. This mindset serves as the rationale for conservatives to vote against social welfare programs that are designed to assist those less fortunate.



Anyone for Mars: A Tongue in Cheek Look at What Might Be, But Won't Be Able to See

Fri, 12 Jan 2018 08:59:37 -0600

Have you ever wondered what life will be like in a thousand years? No doubt everything we think of as high - tech today will be museum pieces, that provide a chuckle or two from all those new kids on the block.

We Need Positive Political Leaders

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 07:24:08 -0600

It generally doesn't do society much good, to look back, and believe, as Paul Simon wrote, with differing lyrics (at different times in his life), Everything looks worse (or better) in black - and - white! Many feel, we are presently witnessing, a period, focused more on blaming and complaining, and empty rhetoric and/ or promises, rather than introducing relevant, sustainable solutions! Whether one is a Democrat, or Republican, or considers himself, liberal, conservative, or moderate, it's essential to recognize and realize, we rarely benefit, in any meaningful manner, when the conversation focuses on blaming and complaining, rather than well -...



Rise of the Z-State and Faltering Societal Fate - Part 2

Wed, 10 Jan 2018 14:39:51 -0600

With the popularity of the zombie genre, from graphic novels to the movie screen, it is an apt depiction of post-modern humanity. Any devotee of "zombie apocalyptic" stories, likewise, finds a correlation between the notion of a "z-state" and reality of a devolving culture to be quite both alarming and fascination. From entertaining dystopic fiction in terror-panicked shopping malls, to the government websites planning for societal pandemic, the metaphorical admonition for survival preparedness and emergency planning reflects real life issues and foolish behaviors.



The Gambit of Power and Control in Human Deception - Part 2

Wed, 10 Jan 2018 14:36:14 -0600

As the devolution continues, daily occurrences around the U.S. and the rest of the world, offer evidence of the gambit of power and control in human deception. A continuing process of human regression in the imbalance of social equity, the few who manipulate the resources manage to exert influence on those of lesser means. Recently, a prominent business magazine known for reporting on wealth and power within business and government circles stated that 1% own more than 50% of earthly wealth. The continued decline of reasonable materiality does not paint a positive picture.

Tue, 09 Jan 2018 07:28:10 -0600

Politicians have enjoyed, less - than - stellar, reputations, for generations. Therefore, it should not be surprising, to anyone, when we witness, them making empty promises, and using over - stated, political rhetoric! However, in today's world climate, we have been witnessing, this behavior, to an extreme, because most observers, seem to recognize, the present occupant of the White House, President Donald Trump, has taken this behavior, to a level, we have never witnessed, in recent memory!



Realisationism Explained

Mon, 08 Jan 2018 08:33:16 -0600

We are beginning to realise that all humans are clever and have always been so very clever? We are also beginning to waken up to the idea that we have all inherited amazing knowledge via a 'trans-generational memory gene' that has been passed down to us from the first extra-terrestrial/ Homo sapiens offspring! We all have amazing knowledge hidden in our unconscious memory. Realisationism is a concept which requires a belief in an ancient extra-terrestrial led civilisation, way before the Egyptians, which has been hitherto hidden, destroyed or deliberately misrepresented. I believe we are rapidly entering an age of Realisationism and beginning to comprehend how and why we are being manipulated and to recognise how easy it is to be manipulated. Thankfully, every generation is producing more and more of us with great wisdom to question the restrictive elite/establishment/conventional views. Consequently, many more of us are becoming more questioning with an open-mind and slowly but surely uncovering the secrets that have been withheld from us since the Great Flood around 10.500 years ago.



Ramifications of Trump's Behavior: 6 Examples

Mon, 08 Jan 2018 07:23:56 -0600

Few objective observers would deny, for better of worse, we have never, in recent memory, observed any President, behave, like our present occupant of that office. Donald Trump has spent his public career, in a way, which consistently brought attention, to himself, either by his actions, or rhetoric. Few would deny, he is a master of self - promotion, and while, that, probably, personally benefited him, it is questionable, whether, it will be in the best interest of this country, or many of its citizens.

Fri, 05 Jan 2018 07:31:26 -0600

2017 was a poltical year, like no other, in recent memory! Whether one is a supporter or detractor, of the President, it must be agreed, we have rarely witnessed, anyone serving in that position, similar to Donald Trump.

Examine Official's POLICY, Not Promises

Wed, 03 Jan 2018 07:04:52 -0600

When one considers, and examines, the past results of many elections, it becomes somewhat obvious, many voters, appear to place their votes, based on the often - empty rhetoric, and promises, rather than their best interests, and the true needs, of our society, as a whole! It's important, and we would all benefit, if the typical American voter, would pay more attention, and avoid, either apathy, or proceeding, with the mindset, their vote didn't matter, anyway! With that in mind, this article will attempt to briefly examine, and consider, using the mnemonic approach, why, we would all benefit, if voters...

Jungle Laws of Indian Bureaucrats

Tue, 02 Jan 2018 09:25:05 -0600

In any other country, can you imagine hordes of youngsters passing out of I.I.T and I.I.M and then forsaking million rupees salary packages to become a bureaucrat with a starting salary of just about Rs 35,000-40000 a month? If someone says he or she's doing all this to 'serve' society/country, remember, the statement is as hollow as the one made by a crooked politician who claims to serve his people.



My Political PRAYER For 2018

Tue, 02 Jan 2018 07:19:24 -0600

Making The World Better

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 08:22:37 -0600

Morality raises many questions more so when applied to the social platforms. Who is in any given society can be said to be of the highest moral standards? Who subjects people to any ethical scrutiny?

Trap of Contemporary Values?

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 19:59:05 -0500

The mass media frequently exposes us to viewpoints that reflect contemporary values of society to do with for example consumerism, celebrity, work, and sex. It is easy to unthinkingly fall in line with these images and sentiments. They convey messages about what one must do, should believe, and need to have. You may have a sense there is something missing in such views. They imply having possessions, being well known, attractive, or successful are all important. Are you in any danger of falling into a trap? There is a risk that commonly held fallacies that exist beneath the surface of the mass media will trap our minds.

At the Igbozue summer picnic, held Saturday, August 13, 2017 at Wharton Park, in North Haven, Connecticut, children and teenagers sat around wooden tables for an educational session of translating popular Igbo names into English.

The Seething and the Silenced, a Fear of Freedom

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 07:18:45 -0500

America is rapidly approaching a glaring red light where a turn could easily be fraught with peril. We faced this same peril in the humble beginnings of the Republic; we battled and won against the most powerful military might on the planet. The likelihood of a win was against all odds and surely gained through God's favor. We faced an enemy who used a club of fear to cower us back to what they perceived to be our rightful place. Our dastardly deed of attempting to be a free people would be forgiven if we lay down our arms and allowed them to control our country; if not, we were to be branded traitors and punished with death. It seemed impossible to win; yet the Americans chose to fight. They understood the value of being a free people.

Sun, 16 Apr 2017 20:04:55 -0500

The spiritual presence within me is again shaken by the lies and misconceptions that lead people like sheep. Visions of the tourist venues in Jerusalem with masses pouring through so-called holy sites is rather appalling.

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 07:39:28 -0500

Ironically, it was Albert Shanker back in 1988 as president of the American Federation of Teachers who came out vocally for charter schools as a solution to the meager 20% of students benefiting from traditional public schooling at the time. Later on, so did Presidents Clinton and G.W. Bush, with Obama ultimately making them a top federal priority. Now with Trump and his Education Secretary at the helm, the push is even stronger--and more controversial than ever.

California Failed To Protect Its Citizens, And Now The Promise To Fix Infrastructure?

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 06:46:00 -0600

When Arnold Schwarzenegger was California Governor he attempted to allot funds towards the repair and maintenance of the levee system and yet, couldn't get the democratic California legislature at the time to accept his budget, instead they had endless social programs and pet projects to fund. Some folks do not remember their history, but I am not one of them, you see here we are in 2017 and we have a dam crisis brewing at the Oroville Dam, which happens to be about 1/2 of Northern and Central California's water supply - it is the main dam with 9-smaller dams above it. As I pen this article all 9 dams are 100% full and Oroville Dam needs repairs on its spillways which are in jeopardy of total failure.



Oroville Dam Disaster

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 06:52:35 -0600

In Mid-February of 2017 we watched videos on TV and online showing just how bad our crumbling infrastructure in the US had gotten. In fact, the tallest dam in the United States had a failure of its main spillway, something that could have been fixed inexpensively turned into cost of 100s of millions of dollars in very short order. Indeed, now some are questioning if the dam can make it through the winter rainy season without total failure - which if it occurs it will be the biggest disaster in US History, with potentially the most lives lost as well.

3D Printing Can't Define The Future Of The Humanity - My Thoughts

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 11:50:28 -0600

While there is the whole buzz around citing 3D printing as the definite future of humanity, I beg to differ for certain reasons that I have penned down below. To start with, the 3D mechanism here banks on resin, and it is actually harmful to our body. You don't always need to come in physical contact with it to understand the danger- in fact; you will end up hurting your eyes even if you stare at it for long.

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 11:53:52 -0600

I have been in toilets all over Auckland with half-naked women. No, this is not about sex; this is about drugs. In sport.

Baby Boomers: Are Your Millennial Children Worse Off Than You?

Wed, 25 Jan 2017 13:17:27 -0600

Some baby boomers may be a bit dismayed by the latest study last week from the Federal Reserve data reporting that millennials actually make less money than they did at the same age. The research shows that boomers' millennial children earn 20 percent less than they did at the same stage of life with a median household income of $40, 581, despite being better educated. There's more. When baby boomers were young, they owned more homes and had amassed assets worth twice as much as young people today. What does this mean for their millennial children?

America, My Home

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 09:10:38 -0600

America, so true, Your red, Your white, Your blue, How can your children stray, Knowing what others had to pay, Answering duty's call, Where so many had to fall, That documents signed by few, Offer freedoms for me and you? How easily forgotten, those words of long ago, That set a precedent for life, that often we forego. To satisfy today, the self centered path we walk, Forgetting to stand for freedom rights, until we wake in...
