AMERICA’S ICON BALD EAGLE OR PHOENIX

America is at war I believe since JFK’s assassination. We’ve been under attack for 34yrs since G. Bush Sr said – New World Order; since Obama’s declaration about transforming America and quipping Pennsylvanians only cared about religion, guns and xenophobia; since Hillary with her basket of deplorables referencing Republicans, conservatives, patriots; since peaceful demonstrators(?) burning down cities; since...

Raised Right

I grew up in a lower middle-class suburb of LA that was mostly white. My formative years 6–13 were from 1952-1959 playing, schooling and learning about life. Every morning we stood in class reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, then sang  My Country ‘Tis of Thee, Sweet Land of Liberty, of Thee I Sing Land Where My Fathers Died, Land of the Pilgrim’s Pride From Every Mountain Side, Let Freedom Ring! This was the daily...

MELTING POT FOR DUMMIES!

What is the essence of America? How does one define it in such a way it’s clearly distinguishable from other democracies, republics and so on? One approach might be describing it as a work-in-progress, trying to live up to the ideals and concepts in its founding documents; all created equal and endowed with certain inalienable rights which include life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Recall how pilgrims came here seeking...

FAKE NEWS, TREASONOUS GOVERNMENT FORSAKEN COUNTRY ...

We’ve come to live in an age when everything is suspect, nothing can stand on its own without cross-checking, fact-finding, researching, etc. Where we once had fairly reliable sources (so we thought!) there is now noise, chaos and party-line. Media has become so skillful in putting out their message/agenda that even with a massive effort which btw most of us are not willing to do we’re still hard pressed to discredit...

AMERICAN TERRORIST?

A few weeks ago we had the tragic destruction of the Francis Scott Key bridge, initial reports tending toward deliberate rather than accidental. If true – who did it? One argument says it was “white hats” since there was minimal loss of life. Another says if deliberate it was a terrorist act and “white hats” wouldn’t do that; “black hats” would not care if it was night or day or with/without huge loss of life....

NIGHTMARE ON MAIN STREET

When I think back to the time of COVID I can remember thinking it didn’t sound right? Too many clues along the way, too many coincidences. It was like – they told us it was coming, then it did; from China! We’d already had plenty rumors concerning a lab in Wuhan and how it might be working on some kind of virus . . . Next thing, police state mentality settles down across the land, taking away our freedoms, balancing...
