As Michael Moore’s new film, “Capitalism, A Love Story” is coming out its seems an appropriate time to reflect on the character of American capitalism and how it has usurped social responsibility and democracy in this country. In the remarkable documentary, “The Corporation”, a segment of the film is dedicated […]

We Americans are being very wasteful with our natural resources of emotional energy. This is causing a slew of problems affecting our environment including adding a great deal of additional CO2 into the atmosphere,  pollution of political discourse  and a shortage of positive emotional energy. I think the time has […]

When it comes to huge impacting realities about American society, The MSM is militant…they employ a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. For example, it was an open secret for decades that Catholic Priests had been abusing young boys. It was so well known “unofficially” that it became a throw away […]

Alright folks. We were on on the verge of a depression, barely missed total bank melt down, and must muddle through a few years of recovery before anything like full employment and prosperity can be expected. We are ensnared in two intractable wars, plus a war against deranged religious extremism […]

Teabaggers believe that czars are bad, generally because it is an unfamiliar word in their vocabulary. When informed that Reagan also used czars, and that czars were expanded under George W. Bush, the crowd expressed dumbfounded confusion and disbelief. Their level of skepticism increased further as they were educated on the roles of the czars here in America. That they wield no executive power and act as advisers.

Is it irony that in today’s media, some of the highest levels of integrity and honesty are exhibited by comedians? Fortunately however, there are still some reporters out there.

Today is what they call in the news business, a “Monday”. Sorry…that’s what we all call today. I meant, today is what they call in the news business a “Slow News Day”. A lack of young white girls being abducted, no new discoveries of the next comfort food that will […]

Republican Teabaggers, in all of their intellectual dexterity, descended on the US Capitol today. A crowd numbering 5,000 or 2 million people (I’m sure official numbers are due shortly) came from near and far wielding well written and thought provoking placards meant to make a strong, unified statement! The classiest […]

I was chosen for jury duty on September 10.   The rest were allowed to leave and resume their lives and for some of them, their jobs in the nearby World Trade Center.  Having to submit to the inevitability of jury duty, I left  the courthouse and gave myself a lemons-into-lemonade […]

Before I start this entry, I would like to take a moment to remember the 9/11 tragedy and its victims during, and after the event. 9/11 had to be one of the most surreal experiences of my life, topped only by the deaths of my parents the 1+ year prior […]

we proved American Patriotism was still within our society, when we all pitched in to do what we could, no matter how great or small the act was.

Today marks 8 years since 9/11. It is a day to remember those we lost in that cowardly and cruel attack, remember the bravery of firefighters, police, volunteers and those who fought back against the terrorists despite the risk and odds to avert further tragedy. Unfortunately, it’s also a day […]

Originally written 9/13/01 Dear Friends: Many of you know that in times of tragedy I tend to feel the need to write in order to find some clarity in my emotions & peace in my mind. When Princess Diana, Walter Payton, John F. Kennedy, Jr. died, when Columbine happened, I […]

Wow! Last night was incredible. I must say, I found the entire Presidential Address to Congress to be IMMENSELY entertaining. I mean, what can I say? How often do you get to see a party behave like petulant children, unable to get their way, and therefore throwing fits DURING a presidential speech?

Oh, there was a’hooting and a’hollering.

Oh, there was a’waving of random signs and pieces of paper in the air.

And to top it off? The phrase heard around the world:

“YOU LIE!”

I simple can’t get over it. I was just so sick over this. I am shaken to my core. If the President can’t find respect & safety on the hallowed floor of the House for a joint speech to Congress among elected officials were democracy is always – until last […]

If you once believed in “yes we can”, well, here’s your chance to be part of that “we”. But can isn’t enough anymore. This time, it’s “yes we WILL.”
