    Dear Donald… It’s Okay, I Feel Scared Sometimes Too

    Mr President, I know you’ve got a lot on your plate at the minute. I’ve never thought of the Presidency of the United States as being an easy job, but I’m sure the reality of what’s required must be fairly overwhelming.

    Will the Past Sins of this Country Continue to Define Our Karma?

    Will the Past Sins of this Country Continue to Define Our Karma?

    I was recently in Clarksdale in the Delta region of Mississippi. It has a bitter sweet history. Before the arrival of the European settlers Choctaw and Chickasaw Indians occupied this region which intersected two Indian routes.

    Who's The "Nut Job?"

    Who's The "Nut Job?"

    Back in November 2016, still a good two months before now-President Trump set foot in the Oval Office for his first day of work, apparently for the American people, odds were 3 to 1 that the bombastic businessman would leave the presidency in shame. With the recent firing of James Comey and Trump's open discussion of how the pressure is now off regarding Russia, oddsmakers are now bumping the odds of a Trump impeachment to a 60 percent certainty.

    The Debt Of A Nation

    The Debt Of A Nation

    The history of this nation is being written in the annals of debt that has become almost to insurmountable. There have been two critical factors that have derailed the sovereignty and stability of the United States. In all our recorded history of over 200 years this nation has seen only small periods where our armed forces were not engaged in some conflict or another somewhere around the globe. From the time of John F. Kennedy's death all the way up to today the national debt has continued to climb. There are two important factors as to why this nation still can't grasp the concept of elimination of our now catastrophic national debt. A nation at war and a nation that relies on the creation of money by privately owned banks like the Federal Reserve Board are the most ruthless ingredients to incur massive debt.

    Clear and Present Dangers Staring Us in the Face

    Clear and Present Dangers Staring Us in the Face

    There are really only two political leaders I trust and their perspectives are very different but they’re both decent, well informed, honest people: Dennis Kucinich and Jim Webb. Coming from the real progressive left, former Congressman Kucinich’s criticism of the current efforts to stage a soft coup against President Trump, with whose policies he does not agree (a perspective I share), has real weight behind it (see here).
