Race Relation Re Deux

Our country rightly honors great civil rights leader the Reverend Martin Luther King with a national holiday. We have also dedicated an entire month in our calendar year to commemorate and advance Black history. On November 4th of 2008 our nation, which is sixty-six percent Caucasian, elected a bi-racial President. Disregarding the progress our nation […]


“His Excellency” is Not Even in the Boat

History tells us that General George Washington, the Father of our nation, was famous for leading his troops instead of issuing orders from a perch of safety. In 1776 the situation was ominous and was a calamitous time for General Washington and the American Revolution. When all seemed like it was lost, Washington made a […]


The Brotherhood of the Stinky Stimulus

“The push to get the bill through before the holiday weekend was so frantic, members of Congress didn’t have a chance to read all 1,071 pages of the document before they could vote” said Sunday, February 15th, 2009 New York Post. Oh how I wish a savvy insider could have only slipped in an obscure […]


What’s It All About…Barry?

Shocking! Exclusive: Baby-faced father of little Maisie Dad at 13 read the cover of The Sun of the United Kingdom. The title of the piece came with a picture of little Alfie Patten, the 12-year old father of a dependent two- day old infant in the picture dressed in red and white striped pajamas embroidered […]


Mr. Corleone Goes to Washington

Who can forget in the final scene in the Godfather, the 1972 mafia movie based on the novel of the same name, or the image of the innocent, fresh- faced Michael Corleone? The scene was a cinematic splice fest as the story cut back and forth between the solemnity of the sacrament of baptism in […]


The Spector, Collins and Snowe Job

What could be worse that having a representative, which does just the opposite?  Isn’t a representative someone who stands in or acts in the place of another?  I wonder when the Republican moderates of Maine and Pennsylvania chose Susan Collins, Arlen Specter and Olympia Snowe as their “representatives” to the Senate they expected them to […]


The Obama-Rama Tax-Rebate Trauma

I was all excited this morning when I found out that I was getting $13.00 a week in tax rebates from the Obama Spend-a-Rama. I mean it’s hard to not consider, when hearing numbers in the trillions, “Hey, what’s in this for me?” This morning, upon rising, good news finally filled my “catastrophically crisis” filled […]


The Epoch of Irresponsibility

We need to restore the full meaning of that old word, duty.  It is the other side of rights.  ~Pearl Buck Many people listening to Barack Obama’s Inaugural Address commented afterward that they “…were especially taken with President Obama’s call for “a new era of responsibility. This is a useful message for Americans of all […]


“Only” Government

Our President has reminded us that the“…federal government is the only entity left with the resources to jolt our economy back into life. It is only government that can break the vicious cycle…“ (Obama: ‘Only Government’ Can Break Cycle of Job Loss, Economic Downturn, Fox News, February 09, 2009). It now becomes our choice whether we […]


The Benjamin Button Bailout

If you think about it, aren’t you just fed up with children in general? I’ve spent a large portion of my life working to take care of my kids and I’m down right sick of it. Now I have an eleven year old grandson and he’s just like his mother was, all he wants to […]
