DEMASKING AMERICA

By |2020-05-16T10:49:32-04:00May 16th, 2020|Categories: General, Personal Musings, Politics|Tags: , |

A Balancing Act between our Health and the Economy I recently listened to a favorite radio talk show Viewpoint This Sunday on the America Out Loud platform. The topic of discussion was about wearing facemasks. The consensus appeared to be that it was unwarranted, unhealthy, and unnecessary. The dialogue between the Radio Host, Malcolm, and his guest speakers, focused particularly on their individual rights. They also shared a frustration at the glances and visual scorns they received when not wearing a facemask in public areas. The next day I read an article about a birthday party in Pasadena, California. [...]

MAINTAINING OUR HUMANITY

To many of you it’s obvious that I haven’t written a blog for some time, and while and I could offer many excuses, they would pale into insignificance during the current state-of-affairs. But something has been churning in my mind and it’s time to spill the words onto cyber-paper. Joe, my husband and I, while self-sequestered in our home, have reflected upon how incredibly fortunate we are, not only to be able to work out of our home, that our love is strong enough to spend 24/7 together without issue…no pots and pans flying…actually, there’s been a lot of [...]

YOU SAY TO-MAY-TO; I SAY TO-MAH-TO.

However you pronounce the name of the fruit, it’s still the same fruit. But when White House Administration not-so subliminally exchanges one letter for another, it significantly changes the meaning.  For more than a year I’ve listened carefully to the questions and answers bantered about between the administration and the press corp. When the question of terrorism arises the media, without exception, refers to ISIS, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. On the other side of the podium, whether it’s the press secretary, Josh Earnest, or anyone else, they always respond by referring to ISIL. Everyone in the administration must [...]

THE MORAL DILEMMA — WHEN IS ENOUGH?

Today, was not my usual power-walk. Instead of recording various thoughts for the book, my mind kept drifting back to a few article I had read earlier in the morning. So, before I can return to the murderous plot I'm concocting for Max to solve...let me unleash... Obama vowed he would to transform America, and in many ways he has accomplished his goal. His push to redistribute the wealth in the U.S. and his support for the United Nations’ proposal for countries to pay their fair share to those countries suffering disasters, are only two recent examples. Most significantly, he has managed to weaken [...]

IGNORANCE IS BLISS – For a Limited Time Only

I write about conspiracy theories for a living and I don’t believe in coincidences. Yesterday on December 9th, The House Oversight Committee held hearings; the star witness Jonathan Gruber—a fact few overlooked. Days before, haggling took place among the politicos as whether or not the Senate Intelligence Committee should release their so called, “Torture Report,” a partisan report detailing the CIA's use of torture on detainees held in secret facilities. Senator Diane Feinstein won—the one sided report was released. In the latter case, many overlooked the fact that the report is a result of a ten year—$40 million investigation into [...]

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY

  Today, on Independence Day, I spent a little time with the father of my country. No, it wasn’t in a séance or in the District of Columbia, which honors his name. It was in the Cascine Park in Florence, Italy where George Washington is memorialized. A month earlier, I was in the Republic of San Marino, the oldest republic in the world, which has maintained their independence since 1797. Their museum houses a letter written by Abraham Lincoln in 1861, when he was declared an honorary citizen. He wrote, “Although your dominion is small, your State is nevertheless one [...]
