Eventually you are simply not going to get what you want if you are mean. Eventually the people around you will rise up and retaliate. It’s just that simple.
Economics is not a religion.
Dear Editor, Economics is not a religion. In studying the current tax reform legislation being considered by our nation I realized that the Republican Party relies on “faith based” economics. It has nothing to do with facts, history, case studies or examples from other countries. It is simply the “belief” in free markets. That faith […]
We are no longer a Christian Nation.
Dear Editor, We are no longer a Christian nation, and it’s our own fault. It’s not the Muslims; it’s not the blacks; it’s not the Jews or Catholics; it’s not the Hindus (who are all over the place too, you know.) Nope. It’s us. We’ve become so mean, so closed minded, so high-and-mighty, that we’ve […]
What if we believed in each other?
Dear Editor, Gosh. I sure loved our country back when we believed in education, news and science. I remember when we put a man on the moon. How proud we were at every step forward. I remember how we felt about working together to achieve something great. Imagine how proud we would be as a […]
Follow the Money
Dear Editor, In great crime movies, we get to watch the hero catch the crook by “following the money.” I think that, today, we can all be heroes by doing the same thing. For instance, historians have been showing us lately that the reason poor white people hate black people is because of a campaign […]
How to be safe
Think of this. The way for us to be the safest country in the world is for us to embrace the full racial and cultural diversity of our citizens. Now is the best time for us to live up to the ideals of our Founding Fathers of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Imagine […]
How Loving Hillary Clinton Can Save the Word
If you hate Hillary Clinton it has nothing to do with her, and everything to do with you. If you hate Hillary Clinton it is because you have been duped. If you still hate her today – that means you are sticking ferociously to your ill-gotten belief. That means you have chosen to believe the […]
How progressives can create prosperity
How progressives can create jobs for all. It’s not rocket science… if we want a world where everyone has value, then let’s simply guarantee jobs. Imagine how much can get done. Here is a great article that outlines how it would work, what it would cost, and how it would benefit society in the long […]

Why Russian influence matters
Dear Republicans, It matters that Russia interfered with our elections. This has nothing to do with which party won, it has to do with the fact the everybody lost. The reason it matters is because Russia’s purpose was to prove that democracy doesn’t work and they did it through the ONLY means that it can […]
Dear Angry White Men
Dear angry white men, Every blessing you have enjoyed your whole life has come because of all the rest of us. Yes, you are angry and you are not seeing what we do for you, but it’s there all the same. Maybe you lost a job when our economy crashed, or maybe you didn’t manage […]
We’ve missed the whole point
I saw another one of those hate posts about Michelle Obama slide across my Facebook feed today, and realize that we’ve missed the whole point. The post was a picture of Malania Trump and basically said “Finally a classy lady in the Whitehouse… Looking at the monkey made me want to puke.” More disturbing than the […]
Getting it straight…
Okay. Our Constitution has failed us, and our communities have failed us, so it’s time to re-coop and re-organize our thinking. I’m sorting this out here to make sure I get it right. Most important is that we don’t like blacks and we don’t like Jews. I’m not quite sure why these two are lumped […]
Just realized that it is hopeless. For a year I have been waiting for the Republican party to stand up and do what is right, to stick up for their stated values, to stand firm with their own moral code. To at least stand for their Christian values of kindness and charity. Donald Trump is […]
Sitting in the chemo line
Today I’m sitting in the chemo line. It’s amazing how different the faces are here than in the radiation line. In the radiation line people pretty much know the percentage of their cancer that is gone, and they are giving it one last shot. Everyone has little hair-doos growing back, and we very rarely throw up. […]
