Fundamentally Gutting the Military

In 2008, Barack Obama made the claim he would “Fundamentally Transform America.”  I said the country’s in trouble when he made that claim, yet I was laughed at.  It would appear my revelation wasn’t all that misguided after all. Few knew what he was talking about when Mr. Obama made that claim.  But like most things that are cloaked in deception the light of truth eventually shines through. During Barack Obama’s eight-year reign as president...

Bored Stiff with Politics

You might say Donald Trump is getting a real education on how things work in Washington, D.C.  Since inauguration day, attacks on the President by the opposition from both parties and the media have been relentless and will probably be that way for some time to come. The Democrat party doesn’t seem to have any real direction for the country except for opposition to anything Mr. Trump does. The liberal media tends to portray the President as a...

Subtle Addiction

None of us can claim perfection.  We are inherently flawed; that's what makes us human.  You might say we’re creatures of habit.  Our make-up is one of good traits, and others not so. You might think an addiction is something more serious than habit, but it’s not defined as such.   An addiction is a dependence on or commitment to a habit or practice.  We often hear about the addiction to drugs, pornography, or alcohol, but I stand on the...

The Election’s Over, But What Have We Learned?

Now that the election’s over, what have we learned from scouring over the statistics? Statistically, America's divided right down the middle philosophically and ideologically.  Half of the population felt the economy was in dire straits, the other half didn't care.  Half of the country believed hard work is admirable, but the other was convinced it was a four-letter word.  Half of America voted for love of country and the other half voted for...

The Business of Marketing America

I rarely take inspiration from watching a movie, but I did for this piece. In the 1983 film, “Mr. Mom,” Michael Keaton and Teri Garr play a couple battered by hard times.  Keaton’s character, Jack Butler, loses his job at the auto plant.  Garr’s character, Caroline, must then make a living for the family at the ad agency where she’s employed, and Jack is thrust into the role of taking care of the kids. Keaton’s character eventually gets his job...

The Religion of Self

Donald Trump is now the 45th President of the United States.  One could conclude a majority of Americans were aware their land was being indoctrinated with an undesirable dogma. In his inauguration speech, Trump said: “We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people.  Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for many, many years to...

Some Perspective on Working for Minimum Wage

Nineteen states, including New York and California, rang in the New Year with an increase in the minimum wage. Massachusetts and Washington State now have the highest minimum wages in the country at $11.00 per hour. Voters in Arizona, Maine, Colorado and Washington approved wage increases on election day 2016.  Seven other states, Alaska, Florida, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, Ohio and South Dakota, have automatically raised their state’s...

8 Years

Ask yourself what Barack Obama has accomplished in eight years?  Would Obamacare come to mind?  Is it a divided country?  How about an economy that needs an IV?  Then there’s the thought of a weakened military of course.  Our enemies love us, and our allies can’t understand why. A majority of voters in November came to the conclusion America needs a New Year’s Resolution come January 20th. But what will Barack Obama’s legacy be?  It’s a given...

The Sum of Our Parts

Time is an important thing.  The years, months, days, hours, minutes and seconds of our lives tick away without much thought, few seem to notice.  Take a moment or two and stare at a clock with a secondhand, then ponder the direction of life.  Is television or a video game really all that important?  How should I spend my time?  What's deemed most important?  I'm sure thinking of others would be a far less priority if we dwelt on it. While...

The Nothingness of Having It All

I had a dream, and in that dream my wife and I were standing in the midst of a never-ending field.  As far as we could see were neatly cultivated rows of seedlings that had sprouted to a height of six or eight inches.  The plants looked to be spaced about six or eight feet apart.  The rows were also about 8 feet apart, and as my wife and I walked the rows they seemed endless.  They extended as far as one could see to the North, South, East and...
