First off I extend my heartfelt condolences to the Monroe and Jackson families and friends over the needless loss of their loved ones, Jeffrey and Edwin. My writing was motivated by an immigration activist whose name I cannot now remember but well remember her stating that these deaths were not about illegal immigration but rather … Continue reading Condolences to Monroes & Kennedys
President John Fitzgerald Kennedy condemning the inhumane wall built by the communist government of the German Democratic Republic (GDR) was spot on, the very moral statement to make. The Berlin Wall was built by a communist regime to not keep people from entering the GDR but rather thwart East Germans from escaping the totalitarian regime … Continue reading Desired Outcomes and Alternatives to Wall, Please!
They’ve done it, I tell you. They’ve actually done it. Our elected representatives have managed to carve out 800,000 humans living illegally in USA and pit them against my retirement savings. In the interest of clarity, I write specifically about the stand off over DACA, and holding the federal budget hostage if a “clean” DACA … Continue reading DACA vs. My Money?

I believe the 800,000 or so humans included in the executive-ordered DACA program should be … Continue reading Yes to dreamers subject to law…

It was in the former GDR … Continue reading Freedom of Speech: Schoolboy jailed
A dear friend posted a graphic suggesting that USA's 79 year-old life expectancy was much lower than other countries due to America's 'for-profit' versus 'single-payer' healthcare offered by other countries. As previously stated in other posts in reaction to similar, broad-stroke statistics, allow me to reaffirm my support for single-payer healthcare so long as it … Continue reading Universal Healthcare and Life Expectancy
