Then in Stumbled Trump

Too long dependent on racial appeal and citizens disenfranchisement, the frightened minority, tried to survive at all costs. The gasping Republican Party bargained and were vexed with God. The Republican Leadership, now reviled, and terrified, vitiated its legal and moral responsibilities to the nation, and surrendered all to the lingering tea party’s poisonous breath of […]

Sarah Huckabee-Sanders, There Was a Man Nicknamed Baghdad Bob

Sarah Huckabee-Sanders there was a man nicknamed Baghdad Bob Sarah, why and from where we heard that adapted quote before? Seems so familiar. Oh, yes, it was a bit like this: peace will come when the Arabs love their children more than they hate us (Israel). You do realise, I assume, that the context in […]

Our Worst Enemies Are Here At Home

After twenty years in child protective services. I thought I’d seen it all. Every kind of cruelty perpetrated on young boys and girls, I have investigated. This post is deliberately short, only because I feel compelled to add my voice in protest concerning Alabama Republican Candidate Roy Moore. I do understand that the allegations of […]

Freedom, Human Rights and Other Hypocrisies 

I woke up optimistic and went back to bed disillusioned. So I thought the least that I might do is bring attention to the plight of African-Americans caught up in America’s Criminal Justice System. An institution, if not by design, then surely by malice, IS determined to eliminate that particular segment of citizens. A protracted […]

Compromised And Paralyzed, America Now Has No Government 

By Leyland A. King July 7, 2017 No need be alarmed or outraged about the title.  It really doesn’t matter anymore whether one chooses to be Democrat, Republican, or apathetic; religious zealot or palpably patriotic. It is too late! The hated Washington big government is no more, and the welfare queen has flown. Yes, the […]

The Big White Ghetto: America’s Useful Secret

Today, while preparing some notes on another subject, it occurred to me that the state of Kentucky, U.S ranks near the bottom of human well-being scales on every measure: adult literacy, higher education, household income and others. Thirty-two percent of the families live below the federal poverty level thus qualifying for federal assistance.  Welfare. http://theweek.com/articles/452321/appalachia-big-white-ghetto How could this be, […]

After President Obama, What?

Today, I spent an inordinate amount of time reading posts on social media. Several hours reading just political commentary from my fellow citizens, not media articles, not blogs, only posts from John and Jane Doe. I made sure that I was mentally prepared for every disconcerting thing, my rule: do not post or respond. I […]

So, You Saw “The Homeless”….Then What?

Potaro335 January 3, 2014 at 5:35 PM (Reposted) Today I read an article titled “Senator Spends Day Off With Homeless Man For A Lesson You Can’t Learn From An Office”. Linked to “Homelessness” by Eleanor Goldberg. Clearly, the composition was not about the victim, anonym Nick, nor about the phenomenon our society struggles with. It […]

We Are Failing The International Criminal Court

  X millions of people were murdered in their home countries by their own armies, militias, police, political thugs or mere fellow citizens riled to riotous actions. Women and children bore the worst of the suffering through displacement, property loss, rape and kidnappings for soldiering, sale and sex slavery. Many, including forcibly effeminated men, have […]

Yes, Every Citizen Should Care

That something is dreadfully wrong with our law enforcement system would be evident to any unbiased observer. Whether it’s sufficient to be just an observer begs the question. Well known, is that an interested, informed, active citizenry is not only vital to the government that we want, but its efficiency and values be in harmony […]
