To Invite original and provocatively inspired thought and discourse relating to a variety of Individual, Political and Economic issues of the day, viewing each through the filter of Thomas Jefferson’s “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.” Read more...

Sanctuary of Violence

Once again, the weakness of the designated Sanctuary-Status proves itself as weak a protectorate as those that believe that by eliminating guns you eliminate violence. This day’s tragedy is once again emblazoned with the same idiosyncratic metaphors to cover for the lies we keep telling ourselves or the false messaging that comes from the menagerie of elected officials who are as much a part of the problem as the lost soul who pulls the trigger. What have we done to these Children? Really? This Nation is going to look to the mindless labyrinth of government for relief, for composing a meaningful solution? The very camp of fools who can’t balance something as simple as a budget? The very same group who can’t seem to grasp the concept of “representative” and yes, the very same group that can’t seem to understand that as a mechanism for protecting the richness of this Nation’s promise you must never permit Illegal Immigration, you must never provide Sanctuary for those who break, sacrifice or dismember the very blessing they claim to be the allure, the definite and absolute force that compels people to come to this Country.

Subservient State; Democracy Thrives

Democracies thrive when the State is subservient to the People; once the State’s first choice is to save itself you know it has failed. The process requires an enduring cast of characters and there have been many colorful characters over the decades wearing at the core of this Nation’s structural order however let’s consider, for now, the most prominent, our chief caricatures, the preeminent fixtures of the statists, the most recognizable being none other than John McCain and, more and more frequently, the spit-bucket man himself, California’s Massachusetts-born carpet bagger, Adam Schiff. The character of a People is evidenced by the actions of its Government, the actions by those who hold the Peoples trust; this is a most humbling measure!

Trump’s SOTU January 30, 2018

Trump’s SOTU, instead of being a catalogue of fabulous eccentricities, should be a panoply of congressional failures sourced from the last 30 years. During this portion of the presentation a rotating screen will capture the projected images of those bad actors responsible for these legislative failures including those who have made a career out of bleeding the American Public by remaining in office for more than 2 terms. Trump would serve the interest of the American public best by illustrating how quickly even the best and most promising of his ideas quickly decomposed due to bipartisan compromise or the poisonous elixir of political expedience, a system unwilling to be productive. Trump should include a new SOTU feature which highlights the legislative or meritorious bumbling of Congressional Members including a current year report by the Congressional Ethics Committee. For the inaugural offering might I suggest the illustrious antics of Rep. Adam Schiff, Rep. Barton, Sen. Graham or Sen. Durbin.

The Drama that is DACA

The Drama that is DACA and the Dishonest-Truths of those who sell it! A few thoughts to consider:

1. The “We are a nation of immigrants” is one of those statements that at first blush sounds so poignant and relevant, a complimentary monument to the Nation’s structure and its people who left everything with the hope of becoming a part of a most powerful promise occurring never intending or hoping to become separate and apart from it. There was a time when the richness of the bond caused it to be integral to the promise, wrapped in and indistinguishable from the body of absolute truths so much so that you intuitively understood that objection to its richness was unthinkable; not anymore.

Happy New Year 2018!

At each ending appears an option, a New Beginning. In the end one ultimately arrives at the defining cross-road; do I dare the seemingly impossible or do I surrender. The great ruse of mankind is to believe there is a middle ground, that there is a state of sufficient, acceptable or consensus: they don’t exist, they’re only illusions of the human mind set about to anesthetize the individual into believing both that arrival is unnecessary and effortless. In the animal/human kingdom stasis is simply not feasible, it’s not real.
