A Divided Nation Under Trump

Patriotism is something that the right and left and even those in the center have strong opinions about and it was a topic I believed needed to be talked about, which is why I wrote a book on the issue called, Divided Patriotism. I did so because we truly are divided but despite the views…

Fixing America’s Problems

Often we hear the slogan by Trump’s base, “Make America Great Again” yet they do not know what it actually means, they only say it because he says it and made it his campaign promise. On a podcast episode recently as well as on a recent blog post on this blog I talked about how…

Change Constitution to Reflect Today

Just a brief post today to piggyback on something I was talking about on my podcast today to start the conversation about how the Second Amendment is outdated and needs to be changed to reflect our current world here in 2017. The Second Amendment is what the pro-gun people always hide behind when we debate…

What Makes America Great?

The weeks and months leading up to Trump becoming the president were dominated by one often repeated slogan in the media and what his campaign was about since the start and that is the “Make America Great Again” or the hashtag “#MAGA” thing that goes around. This continues even as he is the president yet…

Trump Fans Are Selfish and NOT Christian

The ignorance of far right conservatives or as I call them .. Trumplicans is amazing .. they say that they don’t want to pay for Medicaid, food stamps, and so forth because they aren’t responsible for people’s bad choices. They think everyone on disability and welfare is “lazy” and they want to end those vital…

Happy Pride America

I will say it because someone has to, the White House for sure has not done so or done anything to help this community. The White House under Obama was a very LGBTQ friendly administration bur times have changed and Trump will not even do something as simple as recognize June as Pride month nor…

The Dangerous Takeover of America

I just published my latest book, this one on the Obama legacy, and in writing this book I remembered just how great America was under his leadership and how we were much better when he was president. Now, America has always dealt with these issues but when we had leaders who protected us and had…

Elections Have Consequences

Constantly we hear the supporters of Donald Trump use the term that “Elections have consequences” and they are right, they do have them, but it is not what they think when they use the term. I have my own beliefs on why elections have consequences and these consequences are a result of the things Trump…

Honor Them with Action – Orlando Strong

Today is the one-year anniversary of the worst mass shooting and hate crime in US history. Yes, it was also a terrorist attack but in my humble view, all mass shootings are terrorist attacks whether a white Christian, a Muslim, or another religion, race, or anything commits them. Today, we honor the 49 lives lost…

The Sinking Trump Administration

I am sure you all saw the classic testimony of former FBI Director James Comey yesterday and I am also sure that you also had a passionate opinion on that hearing and what Comey said, whether you support Trump or are against him, the passion that hearing ignited was felt by both sides and for…

End the Hate, End the Violence, Bring Peace to the World!

Again, the topic is terrorism but this post goes further and talks about violence and hate that is much more common in our world but also in our country since the election of Donald Trump to the Oval Office. I believe a post about the issue of terrorism beyond the demonizing of Muslims like Trump…

Why we Wear Orange and Fight!

I just wrote about this issue a few days ago but on this day I felt I needed to do so again as today is not just any day, it is National Gun Violence Awareness day. It is a day that we speak out and remember the victims while also calling for change on this…
