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...
I’m thinking that the reason for why the world’s in such a mess is mostly because there are an insufficient number of folks interested in doing anything about it.
Cultures, Societies, and Nations ultimately fail largely because they lose, in ever increasing numbers, the singular potency of the Individual, the irreplaceable identity of what is Sacred, of Sovereign, of the Billions and Billions of One-And-Only’ s (You) that have, over time, come and gone.
While we may find safety within the community of the horde it requires only the singular exercise of One to incites movement, to introduces or exposes a thought into action, an imagined image into form and so on; we ought not to lose sight of this truth. Read more...

It’s one thing to have Political Leanings or even Bias; it’s quite another thing to use the entrails of Government, particularly the DOJ/FBI/NSA,

To better understand the importance of the President’s move to push forward with relocating the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem one needs to understand the history of Palestine particularly as it relates to the Israelites (historical geography and religious terms) and the historically temperamental role the British played, largely for preservative-economic reasons, in the mock-up of present-day Middle-East.
Today, oddly enough, much of the plenum-in-opposition to a two-state solution maintains the very same preservative-economic motives. Even if resting on the historical and religious arguments it’s quite difficult to substantively object to Israel’s right to a homeland securitized by International endorsement which is, by the way, no less the case for non-Jew’s/Arab’s and while the U.S. has, since 1948, supported and has come to represent the most conspicuous solution-advocate and, we should note, without the kinetic forces of other influential States.

Any person with an attachment to the common bond that inextricable links each Person to another will feel the pain of loss and even more so, in the case of Kate Steinle, when we consider her Father who will hear, forever, her last words.

Yes, let it sink in! Read more...
