A woman knows by intuition, or instinct, what is best for herself.
Marilyn Monroe

What the ….?

Did you ever get the feeling that you were missing something? Like everyone is talking about a movie you didn’t see. Or a TV series everyone watches on Netflix and you don’t have Netflix. Everybody is all excited about this thing but you’re sitting there going what the ….?

We’re all having one of those […]

Legends in Our Time

Out of great tragedy step great leaders; think Abraham Lincoln out of the ashes of the American Civil War, Dr. Marin Luther King Jr. against long standing racial injustice, hell think Jesus here too, transforming the massive perfidy of the human race. And, now out of the ashes of the bloody shootings at Stoneman-Douglas High […]

Changing Representative Government Into Corporate Authoritarianism

Every day we hear bewildered pundits discussing the current executive administration and its internal motives and endgame.

It is true that many of the Administration’s actions are confusing. Despite the investigation into whether they conspired with a foreign government to influence the election, the State Department has balked at enforcing the law passed to […]

It’s Cryin’ Time, Again

Chuck Schumer reeling from the defeat of his government shut down told his constituents that the reason he was going to vote to fund President the Donald Himself’s wall on our Southern border was, it couldn’t be built.

This is being presented as an assault on religious freedom and more particularly, Christianity–even though twenty-eight states have a similar law […]

Gun Control: Being Honest

As a lifelong gun-owner with a concealed weapon permit and an admitted fascination with the technology and hardware of firearms, I think its time to own up to the realities of gun violence in the U.S. and the honest reason why gun-control is opposed so vehemently. It has to do with the elementary psyche […]

The Essence Of Han- Understanding the Korean Psyche

Just after the United States began the invasion of Afghanistan I wrote an essay describing the history of conflict there and the reality of the socio-political structure of Tribal peoples as opposed to nationalistic entities in establishing peace. Today, sixteen years later, the reservations I had then about our military success there have been […]

To Keep, or to Cast Away

“Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect.”

Romans 12: 2

Perhaps it had something to do with my having been listening to the angst-ridden radio newscast prior […]
