America, where are we going?

America, where are we going?
As I begin this article, my hand is trembling a bit. The pounding in my head is unmistakable; I have a hangover. It is not due to the 25 year-old-Scotch I sipped New Year’s Eve or Louis Roederer’s bubbly wine at midnight. My headache and queasy stomach are due to the year-long political drunk of... Read more »

For a change, think about Labor on Labor Day

For a change, think about Labor on Labor Day
Monday is Labor Day. It is a time we are supposed to honor the American Worker. When I was a Republican, I was expected to hate the AFL-CIO. It was the same story in Business School. I was told to despise labor. Labor was an expense on the Income Statement and we were taught to minimize... Read more »

I pray our soldiers didn't die in vain

I pray our soldiers didn't die in vain
America has gone a wee bit crazy of late. The GOP is helping Donald Trump destroy one of our fundamental ideals. It is the central reason I left the GOP and joined the Democratic Party. The Democrats today are the party of Freedom. I spoke with a British Reporter yesterday. He asked me, “Bob, what... Read more »

I love Mexicans

I love Mexicans
Our xenophobic President, Donald Trump in Poland with his neofascist pals that run Poland these days made me think of Mexicans in America. Poland is one of the most homogenous nations on Earth.  Like Hungary and a few other nations in Eastern and Central Europe, they are in love with neofascism.  The skinhead movement is... Read more »

I long for the good new days

I long for the good new days
So many people write about the good old days and long for them.  Not me.  You can keep the good old days.  Many of them were not so good.  I’m looking forward to the good new days. I remember kids with polio and iron lungs.  They were huge contraptions that helped someone who had lost... Read more »

What became of empathy?

What became of empathy?
I see America at a crossroads, and empathy is on one of the roads we can either take or a road we will leave behind.  You remember empathy, don’t you?  Then again, if you live in America, maybe you don’t remember empathy.  It seems to have departed our nation and our national consciousness. “Walk a...

As a nation, where do we go from here?

As a nation, where do we go from here?
I didn’t support Donald Trump. His Presidency is going to be a reality, though. It is hard to admit defeat, but I have to look at reality in the context of loving my country more than I dislike its leader. I do love America. I love America because we are not perfect, yet we talk... Read more »

About flag burning and being a citizen

About flag burning and being a citizen
Once upon a time, the Republican Party loved to sell itself as loving the Constitution. There was even a Constitutional Conservative movement within the party. Do you remember those folks? Barack Obama would clear his throat, and they screamed, “unconstitutional,” at the top of their lungs. That was once upon a time, in a far... Read more »

We're losing America to hate

We're losing America to hate
I wish twitter would block access to Donald Trump. His twitter account could be used for good, but instead, he uses it to harass people, divide the nation, and to embarrass himself and the USA. For proof of what I say, look no further than his flurry of bizarre tweets this weekend directed at the... Read more »

President-Elect Trump's ticking time bombs

President-Elect Trump's ticking time bombs
Even the most seasoned politician takes at least a couple of months before totally forgetting what they said and what they promised and start making a U-turn on policy. Not Mr. Trump, no sir. He made the transition from businessman to just-another-politician in less than a week! Last night the President-Elect appeared on 60 Minutes.... Read more »
