History of a “Change is Gonna Come”

I find the history of the song Change is Gonna Come fascinating.  It was written by Sam Cooke after an incident that occurred on October 8, 1963.  He had a reservation at a Holiday Inn in Shreveport, Louisiana and when he and his wife arrived they were told there were told there were no rooms…

An “Investing in America Tax”

Trump and the Crimson Congress continued to plunder the United States last year by lowering the federal Corporate tax to 21% recently in 2018.  Much of this was paid for by increasing taxes on the middle class and by leaving projects unfunded.  As a result, many struggling working people have already been hit with these…

How To Unfuck The World…

How do we stop global warming?  I believe the answer is by creating another little ice age.  Humans have done it once before (that we know about), so there’s no reason we couldn’t do it again.  The first little ice age was caused by the genocide of the indigenous people of the Americas.  When 90%…

The Trump Effect

At one time, I couldn’t understand why some people couldn’t understand certain things, even when they were thoroughly explained or quite obvious. It took someone with a doctorate in psychology to explain to me that half the people out there have below average intelligence.  So I guess we could also say half the people out there…

Yes to a Virtual Wall

Physical boundaries such as walls were so last century’s security crisis.  We’ve evolved now to the point that the real threat is now virtual contact.  China or Russia don’t have to be physically near us to be the real threat. Small groups of people used to be able to fend off an entire army by…

America’s Structurally Impoverished

I’m sick of hearing about how we have “a good economy” because of a low unemployment rate.  Why is no one asking the critical question, “How many of those people are structurally impoverished?”  Or another less economic way to say the same is, “How many of those jobs provide dignity to the worker?” In this…

Washington Measles Source?

We now over 100 cases of measles reported in the United States. But has anyone looked into the actual source of the Washington state measles outbreak?   I fully understand people are getting it because they aren’t vaccinated.  However, it still had to arrive in Washington state somehow.  Did someone with it in Canada walk…

American Liar

Sung to the tune of American Pie (with apologies to Don McLean)   A long long time ago I can still remember how That music used to make me smile And I knew if I had my chance That I could make those people dance And maybe they’d be happy for a while   But…

Benghazi was the Witch Hunt

Part of me seriously wonders if the lengthy Benghazi investigation which never resulted in anything was an attempt to desensitize the American public to the gravity of an ongoing federal investigation? As long as that investigation drug on for it makes me wonder how much those Republican senators got paid by Russia to continually investigate…

The WalMart Walkout

I had a strange, vivid dream last night.  I was somewhere in one of those right-to-work states at a Wal-Mart.  I’m not sure if it was Black Friday or when, but a large mob was gathered by the door.  Anyway, right before the door was set to be opened a group of employees quit and…
