Choose A Symptom, Ignore The Disease

America is very, very sick. The disease which is destroying our nation feeds on: 1) Unchecked imperial ambitions. 2) Exceptionalist hubris and arrogance. 3) The crushing power of corporations. 4) The militarization of everything. 5) Plutocratic tyranny and greed. None of the presidential candidates will talk about the disease. Because none of them has a cure. Continue reading

Character Witness

I make no secret of this. My novel “An Unlikely Truth” has been out since mid-February of this year. Two-and-a-half years in the making, it’s not just more pulp fiction to add to the pile. I sincerely hope it makes a difference. Continue reading

VIDEO BLOG: Trust No Incumbent

The bribery and blackmail has destroyed any semblance of representative government in contemporary America. We have learned our lesson. The faith both in our democratic system and the politicians we entrusted with the future of our nation and the quality of our lives was misplaced. The system has been corrupted by money and the trustworthiness of our “representatives” in public office been sabotaged. No more apologies. No more excuses. No more bullshit. Trust no incumbent!

The ‘P’ Word

The Day That Changed The World

The coming election will probably change nothing. The wars will go on. The plundering of our national wealth will continue. The waste of our valuable talents and energies through unemployment and underemployment will march forward. Social Security and Medicare will be chipped away until sometime in the future they are hollowed out and meaningless. The rich will get richer and most of us will be grateful for the few scraps we get. But we CAN change the world. Continue reading

Pledge: Medicare

Every version of the Ryan budget bill has represented a direct attack on Medicare. Any congressman who supports it is attempting to undermine an efficient program which has provided for the medical needs of millions of Americans. Such treachery must at all costs be confronted and stopped. Continue reading

Pledge: Social Security

This pledge should be presented to any congressman running for re-election this November, who recently voted for what has been termed the Ryan budget. A vote in favor of this horrifying piece of legislation amounts to a war cry for more military aggression and an attack on social security as we now know it. Continue reading
