"Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot in things racial, we have always been, and we, I believe, continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards, Though race-related issues continue to occupy a significant portion of our political discussion, and though there remain many unresolved racial issues in this nation, we, average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each…Continue
The Constitution of the United States of America is one of the most egalitarian documents in history. In the original document it refers to people as “Persons” or “Citizens”; there are no references to race, color, sex or other discriminators in its text except to exclude “Indians not taxed” the 15th Ammdt. is the first mention of race or color in the Constitution.…Continue

As I love and treat my Daughters (I include my Daughter-in-law as a Daughter), as I love and treat my Granddaughters; so should I treat every woman I meet. Not necessarily love them, but to treat them with the respect and courtesy that I would want all men to treat my daughters with. I love my wife with a special love reserved just for her, and I have a different special love for my Daughters and Granddaughters; one that no other woman qualifies for. I have a love for all people as the…Continue
Travel broadens even the narrowest minds, it often takes you out of your comfort zone and you are forced to tolerate and experience what you would normally never do voluntarily. Sometimes it is to eat food that you would not want to try, go to an opera or Ballet, be in large crowds, climb to new heights, talk to people different than you. For everyone it is something different, and it is often a wonderful experience.
Experience can help us to grow and learn. No one person has all the…Continue
The Question of Socialism
While “We the People” have been working hard since 2009 to stop the implementation of Socialism in the United States, nothing seems to change to our demands; I have frequently questioned the lack of results to our Activism. I kept coming back to the question- Why aren’t we effective?
Then I wondered if we were fighting to elude something that already exists in full force…
I decided to “ask Google” if the United States of America is…Continue
What can you say about a city that is thousands of years old? From before the Romans the Celts had a town here. The London Bridge Started as a pontoon bridge across the Thames River sometime around 400B.C. Like Paris it is full of diverse building styles, with monuments everywhere, there is truly history around every corner you turn. Unlike Berlin, which was total destroyed in the war and has few intact historical buildings, you…Continue
I spent 4 years of my life in Berlin 1980 to 1984 the Cold war was still going on, the Wall was intact for all practical purposes Germany was two separate countries. for political reasons however in Berlin, the Second World War was still in effect. We won, the Germans lost, the British, the French and the Russians were our allies; until Germany was reunited as a single country. I was part of the US Army Occupation…Continue
My personal experience with the French people in the past consisted of working with the French military and dealing with bureaucrats. Therefore my stereotype of the French consisted of a bunch of lazy men wearing ladies underwear, riding bicycles while covered in French perfume, eating cheese and saying “I surrender”.
My apologies to the French People.
Like most stereotypes it did not last long after meeting and talking to a greater cross-section of the French people. For the…Continue
I have just returned from a trip to Europe; France, Germany, and England. My main interest was to spend time with family and to visit some new places and some we had lived at before. As this will be a series of articles I would like to start with an overall impression, then go into details and individual experiences.
First the European Union (EU). Travel between member nations is quick and easy, very little passport or customs controls, after all taxes and duties paid in one…Continue
Proverbs 21:15 (NIV)
15 When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers.
Is it Justice we want?
We hear on TV, stories of a protests; “what do we want?” “JUSTICE!” “when do we want it?” “NOW!”
Is it “justice,” the protesters want?
Wow! What a can of worms this can be. I thought this is a no brainer. It is simple; the protestor and the protested have equal representation under the law. Right? Well not so fast, my assumption was we all…

Between reading Marxist ideology, Hegelian Dialectic and classical conditioning, Pavlovs Dog, I have come to believe they are the same in many basic ways...
These systems work in a way that changes societies response to issues we would have been absolutely appalled by prior to being "trained". I believe this "tricky training" is at…Continue
Hands up… Don’t Shoot. Pants up…. Don’t loot.
The new non-farm payroll job numbers announced this morning shocked everyone and I knew immediately that some in mainstream media (MSM) and blogisphere would do their level best to highlight any bad areas within the report which could be found - because you know it's Obama's evil administration who is to…Continue
