AL JAZEERA AMERICA AND DISH NETWORK – FASTEN YOUR SEATBELTS

August 20, 2013

3

Al Jazeera America will be launched on TV in the US today at 3:00 PM EDT.  Many of us have waited for this moment and have written our support of this day.  But when I called to have my Dish service upgraded so that I could receive it, I was told by the young man […]

Lance Armstrong Has Sullied The Integrity of the US Itself

January 18, 2013

Comments Off on Lance Armstrong Has Sullied The Integrity of the US Itself

We must never forget that Lance Armstrong represented the United States in two major arenas:  the Olympics and the Tour de France.  But he forgot that.  He was out for personal gain and glory.  Aside from music, sports is one of the biggest human exercises that unites the globe. Perhaps character building and education in […]

The Second Amendment is Here to Stay; So are Guns

January 16, 2013

7

There should not be a Congressman living who would allow a presidential order to circumvent the second amendment.  For those who fear we will be just like pre-war Germany, remember, they did not have a history of democracy and certainly no second amendment. Most people are against citizens retaining the mutant military machine guns.  Few […]

President Promises Executive Action on Gun Control

January 15, 2013

Comments Off on President Promises Executive Action on Gun Control

With fears being ramped up in some quarters about all guns being taken from citizens the way the Nazis seized the guns of their citizenry in 1928, President Obama is, in many minds, shadowing Hitler in promising executive action on gun control. Many believe that armed Jews would have prevented the holocaust.  But the specter […]

Their Power Eroding, Will White People Now Face Prejudice and Payback?

January 14, 2013

Comments Off on Their Power Eroding, Will White People Now Face Prejudice and Payback?

The US Congress is more mixed in the ethnic and racial background of its members than ever before.  In England, the most popular name for a baby is Mohammed.  Times are changing and more rapidly than could ever be imagined.  We have to ask:  As white people decline in numbers and power, will regard for […]

Slow Slide Toward Citizen Separation

January 12, 2013

10

So many of the issues we have made important in recent years have eroded trust and an ability for citizens to work together for the greater good.  The polarity that exists now among many seems beyond repair. However, do we have to accept the inabilities of those in the public eye to successfully hammer out […]

Death and Disposition – You Say Your Mother’s Ashes Are Where?

June 16, 2012

10

A decade or more ago funerals and burials in my family became “trendy.”  A cousin whose mother had died, kept her ashes in his front hall closet. One day I went to him and said “I wish you would find a resting place for your mother.  People will begin to ask why I address the […]

Bin Laden Body Alleged To Have Been Found – That’s The Bad News

May 2, 2012

7

The bad news is that a perennial pursuer of sunken ships and other treasure claims to have found Bin Laden’s body bag west of an Indian City. He also claimed at one point in his career that he had located a much sought after sunken Spanish ship off the coast of California but it turned […]

200 Years Ago on the Barbary Coast, Muslims Gave The Message of 9/11 to Thomas Jefferson and Other Founding Fathers.

April 6, 2012

10

The introduction and overview of Thomas Jefferson’s papers at the Library of Congress supports a News Max article from 2009 outlining  the history of the US with the Barbary pirates and reminds us that if we don’t know history, we are doomed to repeat it: See remainder of this article here.

Attorney General Holder Pours Water on Flames Raised by Obama Remarks on SCOTUS

April 6, 2012

3

A firestorm errupted after President Obama seemingly degraded the powers of the Supreme Court thus drawing attention to the checks and balances of the three branches of government.  He had said, in part: “Ultimately, I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that […]

Time Out for Fairness: The Piers Morgan – Toure Encounter and the Breitbart Hack Headline

March 31, 2012

3

Breitbart has a feature article titled: “MSNBC’s Toure has epic Race-Baiting Meltdown on CNN.”  It seemed a must read or rather a must watch clip from CNN’s Piers Morgan show.  Having watched the video, the headline is as far from the truth of the content as Africa from Central America.  It is a hack headline […]

Public Playing Fast and Loose with Trayvon Shooting

March 29, 2012

8

The Commander-in-Chief followed the same pattern he had in the Gates case against the Cambridge, MA police. He bypassed the fact that all of the facts were not in regarding the Trayvon-Zimmerman case and that the shooter had not been tried (albeit overwhelming evidence suggests he did deliberately shoot young Trayvon).  Will this prejudice a […]

My Facebook Letter to Homeland Security

February 11, 2012

Posted on my Facebook Account:   To the Department of Homeland Security. Welcome to Facebook. I hope you enjoy your stay here. I think you should take that part of your name that is “homeland” out of your title because you have made us feel as if this is no longer OUR home. I hope […]

“Midnight In Paris” a Gem from Allen’s Mind After a Long Hiatus

October 18, 2011

Comments Off on “Midnight In Paris” a Gem from Allen’s Mind After a Long Hiatus

NOTE:  The following is an endorsement of Allen’s film; not his morals. Once when asked where his comedy came from Woody Allen replied “I don’t know.”  It was the answer of a true comedic genius – in fact anyone of artistic genius.  The creative spirit takes many forms but generally it comes from the direction […]

Palin Will Not Run But … Does Anyone Feel a Draft?

October 5, 2011

7

Palin saying no to a run for the Rose Garden is one thing; Palin’s extensive and dedicated and vocal national following allowing this to happen may be a horse of another color.  It is hard to imagine them just cashing in their chips. Think of the hundreds of websites that have been established in her […]
