Diversions

I spent the better part of five years as a technician for a telecommunications company, repairing mobile phones at a retail store just outside of St.Louis.

The Women are Marching

I’m not one for protesting. What troubles me, to be blunt, is the utility of shuffling along a street somewhere. What does it tangibly accomplish? What changes afterwords?

The Beatitudes (by Donald Trump) 

  Now when Donald Trump saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him and he began to teach them. Trump said: “Blessed are the boastful, for they are winners and we frankly need more of them in this country.” “Blessed are …

My America Was Great

  In the midst of The Great Depression, President Roosevelt told an unemployed and starving nation that the only thing they had to fear was fear itself. President Obama ought to tell this nation that the only thing they have to fear is themselves. We should fear our apathy, fear …
