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.

What Do You Mean Shut Down Our Government?

Posted in America, Americans, Freedom, Politicians

“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 […]

The Problem of Absolute Power

Posted in Democracy, Leadership, Politicians, Power

Absolute power cannot be wielded absolutely forever. The exercise of power in institutions and organizations in any social order can spawn the catabolic elements of its own demise, for within the matrix of power’s workings are the tendencies of human beings to exceed the limits of power  particularly in their coercive attempts to maintain and […]
