Hide The Protestors

Hide The Protestors

The latest NFL decision follows the typical dominant group bullshit rules to hide the protestors by making them stay in the locker room defeats the whole reason to protest: to let others see the disagreements and maybe, just maybe, ask why they are in disagreement. Moving toward a Fascist system includes suppressing disagreement of any kind and hiding the protest is a form of suppression. Protesters during GW’s “reign” were sequestered inside a fenced area miles from the entourage. Not…

Bubbaville and “Loyalty” One thing has always been a mystery to me. The three stooges in this house have a rebel flag flying and a pro-TrumpMonkey sign in the yard as if he would give any of them the time of Day much less associate with them. So, why the loyalty to a rich–although not Super wealthy–1-percenter? Sadly, the answer is about permissions. His very presence in the highest office of the land gives them and other racist, sexist rednecks…

Education or Profit?

Education or Profit?

Introduction The free market economy has redefined education. Once upon a time, in a world far, far away, one without neoliberal capitalism and a market economy, a person could get a real education. Whether it was an undergraduate degree or a doctoral degree, it reflected a person’s ability to contribute to a field of study with significant research and to develop programs that could improve the state of affairs. Education was considered a state of mind, a lifelong learning process….

Major on the minors and minor on the majors:The American Way (sadly)

The news channel has spent fifteen minutes focused on the fatalities from airboat accidents. Less than a dozen in the last three years! They stressed the urgent need for regulation in the industry.

Why A Country’s Leader Needs to Be An Honorable Man

Why A Country’s Leader Needs to Be An Honorable Man

Every day, those who are the backbone of this country lay their lives on the line, their intention to protect the homeland. Every death is a loss to us all. Those women and men who make that ultimate sacrifice should have done so for the right reasons. To be led by an idiot who makes decisions based on his bowel movements and a news channel is a disgrace to the sacrifice those men make and brings shame on all of…

Structural Insanity

Structural Insanity

The world is structured to produce insanity. Everything we see around us, both good and bad, work to move us closer to the edge of reason. It seems as if things shift much in the same way that a pendulum swings, that we go from one extreme to the other but always reach the point of equilibrium albeit for a relatively short period of time. However, it may be a continuum rather than a pendulum as many of the factors…

What’s So Different about Trump?

What’s So Different about Trump?

As we move into Week three of the new presidency, the number of faux pas has exceeded all other presidencies. Supporters of Trump will say that he is just settling in to his new role and everything will be fine. They support his inconsistent, impromptu decisions because there are few choices other than to admit they screwed up and elected him or actually agree with those whom they have disdained for the past 8 years: the Democrats. Wow! The latter…

A More Dangerous World… Some Thoughts

A More Dangerous World… Some Thoughts

While we have always lived in a society that favors a normalized, white model, one that reserves power and privilege to those who fit that norm, acts reinforcing -isms have been covertly perpetuated. There have always been open acts but limited in scope. The majority continued to hide their true natures…until now. A major shift in the political structure is now occurring. A person who has proclaimed himself to be racist, sexist, classist, exhibiting other disparaging behavior toward those different from him…
