Will an election fix America?

Will an election fix America?
America, we need to wake up. We’re taking our political passions too far. For the first time in my life, I am afraid of my Nation. Nine days ago, eleven people were murdered at a Pittsburgh synagogue while praying, and I see no resolve from the Government, or either political party to fight the hate... Read more »

Facebook went down, and I got my 15 minutes of fame

Facebook went down, and I got my 15 minutes of fame
The maxim, “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes,” is generally attributed to Andy Warhol. Just like the thousands of aphorisms attributed to Einstein that one can find on the net, there is controversy as to whether Warhol ever uttered the words. Regardless of whether he did or not, the words are... Read more »

America, America, what are we becoming?

America, America, what are we becoming?
There are eras in history that seem irredeemable. Periods of time that the grounds for hope and gratitude have disappeared in a quagmire of uncertainty and hate so that it makes it easy to believe those two ideas will not come again. Reasonable men and women are living in such times in America. I suspect... Read more »

Billy Graham proved that one can support Israel and still be an anti-Semite

Billy Graham proved that one can support Israel and still be an anti-Semite
Billy Graham died at age 99 last night. That is a long life. He walked with Presidents and was called America’s Pastor. His fundamentalist thunder filled stadiums and ballparks around America. It was the old-time tent revival gone downtown and it played to massive crowds. I have an Uncle who is a Southern Baptist Minister.... Read more »

Are we a nation of victims?

Are we a nation of victims?
Victimhood has become a comfortable place in American politics. One of the luxuries of claiming victimhood is absolution for examining one’s behavior. Is it becoming a convenience to try and stifle criticism? White supremacists do not believe there is any legitimacy in charges of racism. They do not understand, nor, appreciate the institutional racism that... Read more »

Donald Trump reaffirmed the GOP racist credential

Donald Trump reaffirmed the GOP racist credential
This is a major reason I left the GOP after 44 years as a loyal supporter. Let’s be very clear about something. It is not enough to condemn White Nationalists, Neo-Nazis, and the KKK. Members of the GOP must also condemn Donald Trump for his apologist comments toward the racists in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday.... Read more »

Donald Trump’s disturbing behavior

Donald Trump’s disturbing behavior
I’m seeing a trend in President Trump’s behavior.  I’m not the only one seeing it.  Many are writing that they think he is unbalanced.  I see something else going on that is far more worrisome than concerns over the President’s state of mind. I see the manipulation of the masses to try and mask failure. ... Read more »

Why the surge in racism and anti-Semitism?

Why the surge in racism and anti-Semitism?
In Los Gatos, California yesterday, a Jewish Community Center was evacuated because of a bomb threat.  It was just one more incident in a wave of anti-Semitic incidents over the past few months. Last year, African-Americans took to the streets to protest minorities who died in police custody for no apparent reason or under suspicious... Read more »
