What’s Going On?

Posted in America, Articles, Civility, Democracy, Leadership

The tombstone captioned above signifies that American Democracy has already died and buried but I believe we have a living chance to save it from real death. The late great Marvin Gaye wrote a song which became the anthem of generations of Americans in the 1970’s and one of the most influential recordings in the […]

Posted in America, Americans, Civility, Compassion, Democracy, Good and Evil, Race Relations

Yes! The president has hurled insulting and demeaning words to immigrants, women, and people of color, political opponents and other people. Yes! The president should take responsibility for how his words may have caused some people to engage in hate-driven acts of violence of which El Paso and Dayton are the most recent and horrific […]

Posted in America, Articles, Democracy, Moral Courage, Politicians, Public Servants, Social Justice, Truth

America stands at the crossroads of freedom and non-freedom. Will we retain the right to determine our future as a free nation or will we have our future belligerently and arbitrarily trampled afoot by persons preferring to be dictators than compassionate public servants seeking liberty and justice for all?

A Funny Thing Happened At The Restaurant

Posted in Absurdities, Frivolities, and Inanities, America, Americans, Articles, Big Business, Great Souls, Laughing Out Loud, Stories

Many people were thoroughly upset at the news blaring from the big screen in McHickey’s Restaurant the day Mueller reported there would be no  further indictments of President Donald Trump and his associates.

What Manner of Men?

Posted in America, Articles, Democracy, Leadership, Moral Courage

Looking down the darkened corridors of American Democracy, I still see faint flickers of light clustering and creating new pathways of hope for the American people as they make their way outward and upward to greater dreams and brighter days. That men in their monumental selfishness, unbridled recklessness and ossified arrogance would so carelessly wield […]

What Do You Mean Shut Down Our Government?

Posted in America, Americans, Freedom, Politicians

Will somebody please tell me how a country shuts down its government? Does shutting down the government mean that it no longer needs to exist or that government is no longer necessary? What does it mean when the President of the United States lifts the sanctions on a Russian Oligarch from a country responsible for […]

The seventeen Democrats led by Seth Moulton of Massachusetts and Bill Foster of Illinois along with numerous freshmen who have petitioned other Democrats against supporting Nanci Pelosi as Speaker of the House next January should stand down.

“America You Go Girls!”

Posted in America, Democracy, Election Cycles and Processes, Equality, Movements, Women

The pendulums of justice and freedom are swinging back to their rightful places for all the people of America. The 2018 midterm elections is a referendum on what most Americans want their country to be; not a nation of haters bent on bullying their way to power by frightening and pummeling the people into submission […]
