Who Lurks in the Shadows?

  The days when organized crime figures robbed banks and gunned down one another are long gone. Now, that kind of thing is left to lone strays, street gangs and the like. Today’s organized criminals are more likely to be involved in white-collar heists. They manipulate stock futures and cook the books of multibillion-dollar corporations for example. […]

Gun Debate Turns Ugly

  Some people are too emotionally damaged to be capable of human feeling. Some are  too brainless to be capable of  human thought. And some are just evil. These must be the kinds of people who would threaten to kill others for disagreeing with them. And it must be the worst of that breed who would  threaten the life of a school massacre […]

Who on Earth Likes Trump?

  Who are those people who cheered for Trump at the CPAC conference? Who are those “likely voters” who gave him a 50 percent approval rating in the latest Rasmussen poll? Are they really Americans? Or Russians who infiltrated our political system? Actually, they must be from outer space, as even Russians should know by now […]

The Suspension of Sanity

The ancient Greeks warned that those whom the gods would destroy they first make mad. Don’t you wonder, as I do, whether “the gods” are engineering the destruction of America? For starters, the election of Donald Trump as president arguably qualifies as madness. And the lunacy has multiplied now that he is actually governing. He […]

The Incessant Voices of Evil

  As I live through yet another school massacre and hear the depressingly deja vu arguments on TV, I wonder how some politicians can look at themselves in the mirror and not crumble into a slimy ball of shame. For they are the NRA’s shameful mercenaries in its war against common-sense measures to stem the tide of […]

What Would Jesus Say?

  Commenting on a former White House staffer’s recent revelation that Vice President Mike Pence routinely converses with Jesus, comedian Joy Behar light-heartedly suggested on The View that Pence might be crazy. As  you might expect, the backlash has been savage. The right-wing media are in full cry, demanding ABC get rid of The View. Fox […]

Legacy of a Tainted Election

  Now that we have all seen how the Russians meddled in the 2016 elections, you might think the courts would give Americans a mulligan. Voters were tricked into making the wrong choice, so can’t we void the election results and do it all again? The short answer is no. There’s nothing in the Constitution to […]

Man’s Inhumanity to Man

  There’s a mean streak in mankind, and if it is tolerated, it breeds monstrous behavior. Alarmingly, that’s what seems to be happening in today’s America. You can see it in social media where trolls bare their ugly souls.  You can see it in the news where unspeakable acts of cruelty and mindless rage are reported daily. […]

Making America White Again

  When I was a boy, the sun never set on the British Empire. And in colonies like Jamaica, we were subjected to a pseudo-English culture. Our exam papers were graded in Britain, we used English pounds at the grocery store, we drove on the left side of the road in English made cars and […]

A Bloody Blow – by Russia?

The way I see it, Russian saboteurs dealt another vicious blow to America yesterday as another apparently deranged creature committed yet another bloody massacre using a military grade automatic weapon. Yes, call me crazy, but I blame the Russians (and their American accomplices). This hostile power is working relentlessly  to destroy America from within.  One obvious instance is Putin’s  meddling in […]
