Preaching Hate

If Christianity is meant to preach love, I wonder what religion this Minister belongs to? Maybe Friends of Fred Phelps Ministry? All, not just Christians, but all who believe that all Men are created equal need to rebuke this form … Continue reading

GOP’s Dreakdown?

This gallery contains 2 photos.


It is an interesting conversation. More so knowing that it is coming from a GOP discussion group. As an observer of politics for more than 25-years and a commentator/pundit for the last five, I am now observing cracks in the … Continue reading

Paul, Cain, Romney, and Perot

This gallery contains 9 photos.


I learned a great lesson on winning friends and influencing people (sorry Mr. Carnegie) when I was working for the Gary Hart for President campaign. It is a lesson I give my students and clients – business and political. It is a lesson I have taken to heart. It is a lesson I thought the Republican presidential candidates would have realized by now.

Lying Is Not An Option! Continue reading

The 13th Crusade – Terror, Fear and Paranoia

The original colonies, English, Swedish, Dutch, Spanish, French and Portuguese, were chartered for commerce. Not one charter spoke to the establishment of a religious colony. However, this does not prevent the Christian nation proponents from referring to the Massachusetts Bay Colony and the two Puritan settlements of Salem and Plymouth. What they seem to neglect is the third Massachusetts settlement of Ma-re, which was an Anglo-Saxon pagan settlement. Continue reading

Who is holding the Republicans hostage


I wrote this on Tuesday morning (7/26), so I may be a bit behind the news, that is if (and that appears to be a big if) something positive happens in the next 24 to 48 hours. I doubt that anyone is going to move from their current trenches.

I listened with great care to Mr. Obama’s and Mr. Boehner’s renditions of what is going on. I listened to them again this morning. Here is my opinion of the bottom line. Continue reading
