McCain Rushes in and Makes a Fool of Himself

There’s no fool like an old fool. Especially a malevolent old fool. And Senator John McCain certainly fits that description. Obviously smarting from his ignominious defeat in the 2008 presidential election, McCain is constantly trying to make President Obama look bad. And he usually winds up with egg on his face. McCain seems to fancy […]

Holders’ Errors of Judgment Harm Democrats

It may be time for Eric Holder to quit. Fairly or unfairly, he has become an embarrassment to the president. I don’t expect President Obama to “throw him under the bus.” Obama is not running for reelection and can afford to stand by his man. But a lot of Democrats are up for election or […]

Is Exploiting the Bible Taking God’s Name in Vain?

Pondering the Ten Commandments, I have wondered why it should be a sin to exclaim “Oh my God!” Surely, there must be another interpretation of the admonition against taking the name of the Lord in vain.

While Politicians Fight, the US Drifts toward Disaster

My first-grade teacher at Suthermere Preparatory School in Kingston, Jamaica, read us a poem that illustrates all too accurately what’s going on in American politics today.

Curiosity never kills the cat… in Mumbai

My Indian people are infinitely curious and opinionated  by nature… it seems they pop out of their mother’s womb questioning what just happened, and then answering the question simultaneously. This is something they never outgrow, quite the contrary,as they become more worldly and knowledgeable it intensifies. The first time I encountered this I was dumbfounded… […]

Obama Balks at the Use of Unchecked Power

For quite a while, I’ve wondered how a constitutional law professor could feel comfortable with the dangerous powers acquired by the presidency during the Bush regime. Yesterday, I found out he hasn’t been all that comfortable. I’m talking about President Obama, of course. In a historic speech to National Defense University students at Fort McNair […]
