"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
The fact that Trump doesn't know this or believe a word of it is today's glaring headline and tomorrow's chapter heading in a history book.

Well, oh my. So the Right Wingnuts are out to invent a smear of Mueller. Now, remember this: at least the Russians and Chinese have been tapping The Manchurian President's clear-text iPhone. Likely the Brits, French, and Germans at least as well. Also, this cute smear didn't come to light until after the tapping revelation. You can be sure that the tappers have tape of The Manchurian President okay-ing the gig. If not demanding it. Recall, also, the reason The Manchurian President…Continue
The bellhop had already started his next job...he was fourty four but looked fifty; Bartending, full time, three blocks up the street from the house. My parents were sleeping in separate rooms, and I had the third floor suite to myself now that my two brothers were gone ...not in service, but college. The war was still on but nobody from our town was going to die there.
It was an election year, but I was numb to most of it at 15. I was numb to all of it except the war. I…Continue

Next week on Passionate Justice I will address Hell Week w the racist murders of Black people and Jews, as well as the pipe bombs.
Here, first, is why I think anti-Semitism may be regarded a racist iteration:
Historically, we have seen three distinct types of…Continue
1) Admitted we are powerless over our addiction to Donald Trump and the loss of our moral compass.
2) Came to believe a power greater than him would restore us to sanity.
3) Made a decision to turn our will and our lives to the care of a real God as we understood her or him.
4) Made a fearless moral inventory of ourselves and realized how we sold out.
5) Admitted to a real God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our…Continue
Sometime during 1968-69 a Phoenix surgeon flew his wife to Mazatlan, Mexico so that she could deliver their son in Mexico. Dr. Flynn had lived for some time in Mexico as a youth, spoke fluent Spannish and had no qualms about having his wife delivered in Mexico. Still, I asked why he would do this when we had perfectly good obstetricians in Phoenix.
It was simple. Mexico, in order to prevent foreign nationals from owning Mexico, enacted laws that required 51% of the ownership of any…Continue

Sad news for lovers of swamp music – Tony Joe White (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Joe_White) passed away this week. He was partially famous for his songs "Poke Salad Annie" and "Rainy Night in Georgia", but his catalog contains a huge amount of grossly under-appreciated material equally fabulous, if not, sad to say, equally famous. Here's one delicious example:…Continue
