Conspiracy of Silence As terrible as those days were in the late 60s, at least there was hope that this insane empire be curbed and pulled back. Sadly, today it seems as if most of our 20 somethings and their parents do not even know what is going down. The Conspiracy of Silence is winning!

Season of the Rich As New Year 2018 is before us, we are truly in a ' Season of the RICH'. One need not be an accountant or financial whiz to know that this so called ' Tax Reform Bill ' is a super-rich man's gift to the super rich.

Hurricane Wars To this writer my experience with FEMA had been a sick joke. After the hurricane destroyed our home, and we had to live elsewhere for over FIVE months, we begged FEMA to help us.

And Empires Die And Empires Die 'Nothing ever seems to last, everybody changes oh so fast, promises made promises lost and pride is kept at any cost, And flowers die, and children cry, and lonely people carry on.' (Palermo& Farruggio 1970)

"In Trump We Trust"... With Monster Bombs Doesn't it remind you of what our Vietnam era military tried to do against the Viet Cong, what with all their tunnel systems? Did it do anything at all? You should know the answer: "NO!" The more we 'Shock and Awed' the VC, the more they kept on growing. We tried everything at our disposal at the time.

2017 Amerika: A New Reich ...the movers and shakers of this Military Industrial Empire are even shrewder than the Nazi gang. What they did, successfully too, was create and maintain a 'Two Party, One Party' system. They made sure that the two parties, as is the case in the UK, seem to be at each other's throats... and they are on some issues.

The Drug War on Us... Through Painkillers! They gave him OxyContin for his pain....Having a jackass so called ' MD ' like Gottlieb in charge is the same as the 'Fox guarding the henhouse.'

"It's My Party... "It's My Party...And I'll cry if I want to" was a song sung by Leslie Gore in 1965. How apropos it is now to describe our political situation in 21st Century Amerika.

Inherit the Hypocrisy Watching Inherit The Wind should allow you to see how rigid and foolish many of our fellow citizens still are. Just yesterday our new president had a rally in Melbourne, Florida. The first plan in his agenda was for his wife to lead the mob in prayer.

Let Them Eat Gadgets... There is something magical when two complete strangers look each other in the eye and actually communicate! If those of us who wish to see real and viable political and economic change occur do not go back to face to face verbal contact...

Forty Plus Years Later & Nothing Changes It was the Recession of 1974 and I was looking for a job. I went thru the Sunday Times Classifieds each and every week looking for perhaps some sort of management opportunity. Before I knew it I was hired by a linen service company.....

Love that Dirty Water... and Dirty Wars! Get out on the street corners of your towns and cities to demand drastic cuts in the military spending, an end to our unnecessary bases worldwide, and bringing back both our military personnel and sanity to our foreign policy!

21st Century Amerika, A Reality Show If anyone took the time out and viewed the recent Presidential (so called) debate, one would realize how reality television has merged with politics. Mel Brooks or Woody Allen could not come close to capturing the absurdity of it all. Making sure that the two 'third party' presidential candidates were not allowed to participate, this charade of intelligent concern for issues became a farce.

Good Cops/ Bad Cops All baby boomers who lived in cities will remember the 'cop on the beat'. He was the guy the neighborhood knew and usually trusted. He chased the punks off of the corner and made sure the Mom and Pop stores were secure at night...Good Cop! Most likely he came from a neighborhood not so far from our own, similar to ours in many ways.

They Want Kaepernick to go Kaput! The masters of this Empire will always work to polarize us working stiffs with fake rhetoric and shallow arguments. You know, like during the Vietnam phony so called 'War', whenever we protested it here came the same harangue: "America, love it or leave it! Or, " if you don't like it here why don't you go and live in Russia?"
