America Dishonored

I had never thought about ancestry much until Trump was elected. His fanning the flames of hate for the “other” reminded me that my family goes “way back” in America. Far from that being a matter of pride being a white American is one of shame. I was thinking about this as I made a video talking about Trump while standing in a small military graveyard. I was also thinking about my family beginning with my son John who served in the US Marines and was deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq in 2003 and … [Read more...]

Saying Hillary is just the “lesser of two evils” when comparing her to Trump is like saying a college kid arrested for selling pot on campus is the “lesser of two evils” when compared to Brock Turner’s raping a young woman…

A new biography portrays Hitler as a clownish, deceitful narcissist who took control of a powerful nation thanks to slick propaganda and a dysfunctional elite that failed to block his rise. Sound familiar?The New York Times review by  Michko Kakutani (Sept. 27, 2016) of Hitler Ascent, 1889-1939 by Volker Ullrich, might as well be about Donald Trump. So I succumbed to the temptation to reproduce excerpts of the review here with just one change:I have replaced the word Hitler in the … [Read more...]

an open letter to millennials about this election from an old guy who actually likes you

 You are a betrayed generation. Frivolous divorce rocked your world as too many parents gave up on themselves and you. Your family may have been stable but too many weren't. Too many people were deprived of happiness found in unconditional love. Instead of education that deepens the soul you were herded into crap schools that are designed to turn out workers for corporations not complete people and open doors. You've been lied to. Life is not about career success but the embrace of just … [Read more...]

Trump to Republicans: The only thing we have to fear is people who won’t buy into perpetual fear

(Photo: The Morning Call)The Republican Party/NRA/Trump attempt at a coup against American values of bravery, hope and fearlessness (see Kennedy, Reagan, Lincoln et al) is now a white supremacist cult of death. Period. As was made abundantly clear on the first day of their bizarre "convention" all they have to offer is fear as their “answer” to how to motivate voters.They offer a lose/lose proposition to America: violence and fear of violence, guns and more guns, war and more war.The … [Read more...]
