On Deadly Ground-Climate Change Denial!

  The following is my perspective on a PBS Frontline documentary from five years ago called “Climate of Doubt.” The correspondent is John Hockenberry and as the title suggests, it’s about the rise of the Climate ChangeDenial movement. You may feel that I’m being overly dramatic from the title I have given my essay but […]

The “Christian-Right” & the Corporate Cockroach Conspiracy!

When most people hear the word “conspiracy,” they imagine people lurking in the shadows in a covert operation but this conspiracy by the Christian Right (evangelical fundamentalists or Dominionists) & the corporate cockroaches is overt or right out in the open for all to see: Here is a checklist of the traits of a psychopath, […]

A Clear and Present Danger

  “Clear and present danger was a doctrine adopted by the Supreme Court of the United States to determine under what circumstances limits can be placed on First Amendment freedoms of speech, press, or assembly.” I borrowed the title for my essay from the movie of the same name with Harrison Ford as the star […]

Welcome to the Machine!

[Mark Twain feared to publish this until after his death because he knew how deadly those “Christians” are]  Well we’re two weeks into Donald of the Duck Dynasty Klan’s reign of terror and it seems he’s serious in his agenda of turning back the clock on America?    But his Ozzie & Harriet illusion of […]

In Defense of Immigrants

  I originally intended to write an essay about the greatest job of my life but then thought I could tie it in nicely with the latest bit of bad news from corporate cabal in the White House. I know that I’m probably not telling most of you anything new re: the breathtaking stupidity of […]

Why I Write

When I woke-up this morning, I just laid in bed as I usually do, reflecting on yesterday, today, & things on my mind generally and the idea for this essay came to me. My dear, departed wife, Jeri, had urged me several times over the last several years of her life to write about my […]

Be-Aware of the military-industrial-congressional-financial-media-intelligence agencies-academic complex!

It’s now been over a half-century since President Eisenhower’s ominous warning as he was leaving office but bear in mind, he oversaw the rise of this threat to our democracy while he was president & our industrial base was turned to the mass production of the weapons of war. “The military–industrial complex (MIC) is an […]

The Assault on the Alternative Media

The current assault on the alternative media caused me to reflect on the timing of this assault. It’s best exemplified by The Washington Post’s release of a story naming over 200 websites as “fake news.” This once proud & respected “paper of record,” offered no substantiating evidence & nothing but unnamed “sources.” Some of you […]

We Should Be More Concerned about the NSA’s Hacking than the supposed Russians’ hacking

I watched Oliver Stone’s film, “Snowden” yesterday and again today. But today, I paused it many times to take notes. I’m going to share just a few cursory notes from my first viewing. If you want to delve deeper into the subject, you’re going to have to do your own homework because I don’t feel […]

As Puerto Rico Goes, So Goes Imperialist America!

  A few thoughts on America’s glaring hypocrisy as revealed in the political campaigning going on at present. I assume you still remember the phrase that we were inundated with at the beginning of the world-wide economic collapse of 2008, “The Super Banks are Too Big to Fail?” And even though the overwhelming majority of […]

Why is Donald Trump so Smug?

Because he knows everything about him is a fraud but because of his skillful talents in manipulating the corporate media, he may pull off the biggest scam in American history. Fraud is the mother’s milk of American & international business and this essay is my attempt to reveal Trump’s history of personal & financial fraud […]

An Open Letter to Thom Hartmann

An Open Letter to Thom Hartmann “Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, With conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome, her […]

Accountability?

Accountability? I hear that “concerned citizens,” want public schools to be more accountable. I also understand that the governor of Wisconsin believes that by getting rid of public employees’ right to collective bargaining, they too can be more accountable and help their state’s economic troubles. Is this the same sort of accountability that the U.S. […]

The Key to Corporate Control: Divide and Conquer

The Key to Corporate Control: Divide and Conquer The central tactic or strategy by which the corporate behemoths now ruling the world maintain their power is the age-old, divide and conquer or divide and rule strategy. This tactic has been used by Caesar, Napoleon, Louis XI, the Habsburgs, James Madison, etc. throughout history. Machiavelli advised […]

A Dream Deferred

A Dream Deferred In Dubya’s (George W.”Dubya” Bush) Reign of Terror, those who fought against the British imperialists, would today be branded “terrorists” and would be “disappeared,” tortured, & most likely killed. To dare to dissent or protest in the U.S. today is to risk a helluva lot. Because the American public has become so […]

America’s Version of the Taliban

America’s Version of the Taliban It’s tragically ironic that we, the U.S., have invaded Afghanistan, a country that has been successfully fighting off invaders for over 2,000 years, under the pretense that we’re bringing freedom to them & especially to their women who are treated as chattel. Why is this tragic? Well, it’s quite a […]
