‘Dividable’ Americans, Not Trump, Are America’s Greater Weakness

‘Dividable’ Americans, Not Trump, Are America’s Greater Weakness
It has been quite the new beginning for 2017. Now let us get accustomed to what seemed like the most unlikely of outcomes; i.e., the election of Donald J. Trump as president of United States of America Corporation, who managed to make it through the inauguration. Perhaps it was never in doubt, but it sure seemed that way. I am... Read More

Election Season: Time to Start Speaking Up

Election Season: Time to Start Speaking Up
The Clinton Trump Show is set to come to a head soon and, it will be what it will be. For all the concerns that you hear from politicians during an campaign race about “jobs,” it is rarely considered that, for the most part, those “jobs” will be of little interest to most employees. "Jobs" is the word that politicians... Read More

Novel Idea: How about Postponing the Election?

Novel Idea: How about Postponing the Election?
If democracy is to work, the responsible thing to do is to acknowledge when it is not working as intended, so that appropriate changes can be made, not by the politicians, but by The People. It begins with changes in thinking, from which new choices and behavior will follow. Read More

Principle-based Elections: A Makable Change

Principle-based Elections: A Makable Change
After watching the third presidential debate and the “roast” fundraiser the following night in New York where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were featured speakers, it first occurred to me that the best action the American People can take at this time is refuse to vote for either Democrat or Republican candidate.

After watching the vice presidential “debate” on October 4, the salient question might be, which of these men would you... Read More

Let’s do a ‘Mulligan’ on the Primaries

Let’s do a ‘Mulligan’ on the Primaries
I’m no fan of the “lesser of two evils” school of political choicemaking. What you get, in the end, is evil, not so much in the candidates personally (although there could be some question about Mrs. Clinton), but in the perpetuation of policies and practices that are already exploiting the mass of humanity (not just Americans), for the profit and continued...

U.S. Politics: It’s a Sham Shame

U.S. Politics: It’s a Sham Shame
It is a pleasure to be at a “normal” keyboard again. For any who have wondered, after being unable to raise sufficient funds to climb out of arrears in the place where I resided for 11 years, I accepted and cooperated with my landlord to vacate the premises via an eviction process. Of our belongings that weren’t given away or... Read More

No More 'Lesser of Two Evils' Elections

No More 'Lesser of Two Evils' Elections
I watched the most recent shoutfest (a.k.a. “debate” 2/25/2016) among the Republican presidential candidates (with the exception of Ben Carson who complained that no one was allowing him time to comment). Of the people who were speaking, the most credible and desirable to me, was Donald Trump. That’s not saying much. Donald Trump could be a savior, not for the American people, but... Read More
