America, the Laughing Stock?

The soap opera that masquerades as a government in this country is bizarre. And embarrassing. And this is what the quest for power has devolved into: a sick, immature, freak show.   The petty squabbles over ice cream scoops, fake news stories, and the lack of knowledge between a real coup and a fake one … Continue reading

Cinco de Mayo

Break out the Margaritas and Tequilla, for today is Cinco de Mayo.   There are a lot of civic holidays that we celebrate in the US, but Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican holiday that is celebrated more vigorously in the US than Mexico. No, it’s not Mexican Independence Day. It’s the day that helped … Continue reading

The Louisiana Purchase

The Louisiana Purchase was the most important land acquisition in American history. It added 15 states to the US, most of which became our bread basket.   Thomas Jefferson had this providential vision to spread democracy across the continent. Buying such a huge piece of land was the beginning of America’s westward movement; and his … Continue reading

The Second Bill of Rights

The United States always has been an experiment in democracy. Not everyone had the freedoms we all have today; and some argue that Americans still don’t. But the Civil War enabled the US to extend democracy to more people. The ending of the Civil War allowed the US government to give African-Americans the same rights … Continue reading

Beware of Parties and Politicians

If George Washington or Thomas Jefferson were alive today they would be horrified.

But since the Fed was created the US has experienced the … Continue reading

The Influence On the First Amendment

Freedom of the press is one of the rights that is sacred in our free society.  We look at the media as a watchdog, to keep government accountable for its actions. But there has always been bias. Depending on what beliefs it holds, some media organizations blast one set of politicians while praising another; and we … Continue reading

Cultural Marxism

We definitely are living in some interesting times. Up is down, right is wrong, and everyone is angry about some kind of faux injustice, no matter how petty it is.   There’s this strange concept called Cultural Marxism, and the advocates of it are constantly slamming everything that was once revered in the US. Cultural … Continue reading

Violence In The U.S.

It looks like the United States is becoming a violent place to live.    Again.  It’s nothing new. The right of free expression is part of our set of ideals. But sometimes free expression causes violence. What can start as a peaceful protest can always have a rogue element to it; just one person who … Continue reading

Super Bowl Sundays

It’s Super Bowl Sunday. And while all of the intellectual types can criticize Americans for being football enthusiasts, the fans themselves know what to tell those critics.   This day is like a holiday, and it should be celebrated. The two best NFL teams are about to go at it, beat the crap out of … Continue reading
