That Third of America Which Craves a King

A reflection on the article, For the Want of a Leader No society can integrate amid shameless disinformation’s babble, sowing hostility and mistrust. Ethics,  be gone. Would hope exit too? Who could assure us such will not occur  -a self-crowned king, or a dictator. One might surmise, that if our Constitution’s protectors, fear to step […]

For the Want of a Leader

America’s Choice of Isolation and Low Expectations In America’s vortex of what is acceptable politics, fury and hate drive any related discussion one terminal way -downwards- to a place where fact, fiction, pandering, denial of evidence, and gross lies cluster, brood and capriciously rule. I believe that behind the face of Trump’s Republican party, nests […]

Criminal Justice Reform U.S.A.

An Awful Demonstration of Cruelty, Timidity, and Aversion to Change. Normal indicators suggest that Criminal Justice Reform (CJR) is not among priorities even on the Trump administration’s D- list. One might rightly conclude that the time and money expended so far, is either to appease the system’s critics or foot-drag the issue to 2020. Some […]

NYPD officers pry 1-year-old child from mother’s arms in startling video – CNN

https://www-m.cnn.com/2018/12/10/us/nypd-mother-child-video/index.html https://www-m.cnn.com/2018/12/10/us/nypd-mother-child-video/index.html NYPD and PBA have completely lost their integrity. Why work so hard on losing their humanity as well? This foolishness resulted from mother sitting on the floor because all the chairs were occupied. Then one wonders why the advice given to the public is always that, “these things won’t happen if they comply […]

Hate is Just, When Inhumanity is Present

Some public officials ought to be facing criminal charges for what the Trump administration, its associated agencies and their unjustly enriched private contractors are doing. Prominent among them must be Attorney General, Jeff Sessions and Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Kristjen Neilson. Trump is a given. I understand and respect America’s right to protect the […]

The Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing as a Teaching Aid

I can’t even imagine a situation where someone is being interviewed for ANY job, and the cadidate behaves like an overly stimulated pig, yet demands that he gets that job. Insult to injury, a member of the team, joins the intemperate pig and also insults the panel, threatens them and the dithering, toothless, chair sits, […]

I Saw Headline News Move the Goal Post, Again

I stared in disbelief at one of my favourite television news-shows today. I didn’t throw anything, but that could be due to shock or disappointment. Hard to identify particular emotions when you’re favourably disposed to the host, Carol Costello, who just blatantly violated your trust. Headline News was covering the farcical event known as a […]

Beto O’Rourke’s Comments on NFL Protesting Police Killings of Unarmed African-Americans

This passionate response by candidate Beto O’Rourke is an example of what citizens ought to expect. Reminiscent of Bobby Kennedy’s straightforwardness. Candidate O’Rourke’s comments came following a question from his audience, about NFL protesting by kneeling during national anthem at opening game.

If Only Tucker Carlson Would Read or Listen

Tucker Carlson works at FoxNews. He talks. What he disseminates would be unacceptably deficient at most high school student-volunteer broadcast rooms. Yet, he talks. Carlson has knocked about television talk shows as a guest representing conservative political views. A few times he hosted short-lived shows. In the sphere of broadcasting, Carlson has never been someone […]
