Whoever wins, America is lost

Whoever wins, America is lost
It’s Wednesday and we’re still counting ballots from yesterday’s election.  Right now, Joe Biden is leading the electoral college votes, 238 to 213. He’s also ahead in the popular vote by about 3 million, but we’ve seen that one before. As expected Donald Trump declared himself the winner and falsely claimed that election results must...

Jesus said, "Love your neighbor as yourself." Why not wear the freakin' mask for His sake?

Jesus said, "Love your neighbor as yourself."  Why not wear the freakin' mask for His sake?
Sunday morning, July 5, 2020 Love your neighbor as yourself is a highlight of the New Testament (Matthew 22:39).  It must be important because it also appears in the Old Testament (Leviticus 19:18 & Deuteronomy 6:5). When it comes to loving our neighbors, we should all be on the same page.  Jesus said that it was the... Read more »

Donald J. Trump, president manque

Donald J. Trump, president manque
Struggling to write these posts, I sometimes find myself searching for words that don’t seem to exist.  This week I discovered a few that fill the void; let’s take them out for a spin. The first word is manque -pronounced man-kay’– and it describes someone who has failed to become what he might have been, someone who... Read more »

Fox viewers sum up the destruction of America by labeling it "just politics"

Fox viewers sum up the destruction of America by labeling it "just politics"
A popular throw away line for Fox’s audience is as dangerous as it is simpleminded.  By saying it’s just politics, they relieve themselves of the necessity to know things. Ms. Danine L. of Winnetka, Illinois called her parents last week to ask them to turn off the Mueller hearings.  She told them that it was... Read more »

Six big takeaways from Robert Mueller's testimony

Six big takeaways from Robert Mueller's testimony
Special Counsel Robert Mueller finally, and reluctantly, testified before Congress this week. While some of his responses to questions were a bit halting and less than gripping, there were important takeaways that you might have missed. You certainly didn’t see them on Fox “News.” This is what he said 1) About Russian interference: “They’re doing... Read more »

Trump's ratings are at an all time high and he is the underdog:  Interesting responses
Some interesting responses appeared in my inbox after I posted a blog entitled, Trump’s ratings are at an all time high and yet, he is the underdog. Go figure!  Insults and death wishes don’t bother me (much), but I had a hard time wrapping my head around the barrage of misinformation assaulting me. Then, while... Read more »

CNN Fired Reporters Over Faulty Sources, Fox Only Fires People for Sex Crimes
The battle for the minds of America is underway and, as in all wars, truth was the first casualty.  In this war, however it is the objective of one side to permanently obfuscate the truth with “alternative facts” and completely fictitious representations of past and current events (lies). Which leaves the future in question. I’m... Read more »

Write about what you know, not what you heard on Fox News

Write about what you know, not what you heard on Fox News
Last week I picked apart a paragraph that floated to my attention online and I have since been in touch with the author.  It was, as could be expected a rough go at first, but all is good now.

Racism, anti-Semitism and simultaneous vacations that are two weeks apart

Racism, anti-Semitism and simultaneous vacations seems like one of those which-one-doesn’t-belong questions.  If that were the case, most of us would probably pick simultaneous vacations, because racism and anti-Semitism are similar things and nothing at all like simultaneous vacations. Racists can be anti-Semites and vice versa, but no one can go on simultaneous vacations two... Read more »
