Insanity and the American System (political system)

I don’t know what the definition of insanity is.  One common definition is of doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.   But if this is insane, then insanity is far more common than we pretend. 

For example, I vote in Dover NJ, a town dominated by a cabal of insiders.  A few Republican have run, and one even became the mayor, but as soon as he won, the aldermen (all Democrats) stonewalled him on everything.  His administration failed and no Republican…

Creating The Illusion of a Presidential Family Part I

The fundamental way a ruler takes power is in the manner in which he portrays himself.



In order to create a beloved leader whom the masses can be charismatically seduced by as their freedoms evaporate under unfair and ideological rule, a cult of…

Everyone Wants to go to War Against ISIS

Everyone wants to go to war. Just listen to all the Republican presidential wannabees.

Republicans are giddy with the hope that they can use Obama’s foreign policy to convince American voters that the next president ought to be a Republican. And given the terrible circumstances abroad, it is easy to criticize Obama’s policy. So yes, it would have been better had Putin not invaded the Crimea and eastern Ukraine. It would also have been nice had Iraq worked out. It would have been nice…

Border Security, The True Story

Sounds like a good idea, but “border security” is an empty phrase.  Despite what you might hear, it is not the lack of border security that has brought all the Mexicans and other Central Americans to our towns in search of a work.

Politicians use border security as an excuse to avoid tackling a complex problem, that of what to do about the millions who are here illegally. Their excuse, fix the border first, then we can talk.  But the border will never be fixed.   

The border is…

God's Plan and Homosexuality.

The big news is that the formerly priest ridden Irish voted to allow Gay Marriage.  The traditional Catholic teaching about sex emphasizes God's plan for us (for people).  I imagined what it would be like if God had a chance to speak about "his plan."  I thought the best way to present my thoughts was as a simple conversation with God. 

I spoke to God the other day about his plan.  I was at St. Mary’s Church in Wharton NJ, waiting for…

The Role of Government in America Part II





Seldom will you ever hear a politician on Capitol Hill admit that he is a servant of the people. Our present federal government has forgotten its role in governing America. Rule differs from governance, but Washington does not make that distinction. Washington DC tells us that it can solve all…

Obama Takes Action to Demilitarize the Police

I have often stated that the police have become little more than a paramilitary occupation force in black and brown neighborhoods and communities. Apparently, President Obama agrees:

When Birth Control Was Illegal

(Note: Legislation on the books in Indiana and elsewhere that would allow business owners to discriminate against gays, opened many people's eyes to the lengths the Religious Right will go to re-establish the American Republic as a Christian Republic governed more by their faith-based Bible than the secular Constitution.  But Americans got the first whiff of theocracy years earlier when conservative Catholic bishops resurrected a controversy long thought dead as…

Traitors At The GOP McConnell and Boehner





Ever since the last primary that saw a disastrous outcome for the Democratic Party with Republicans establishing a majority in the House as well as the Senate, the joy has become short lived. Two of the main figures in the GOP establishment have proven to be major road blocks in the policies that…
