Dr. Allen Finkelstein, writing since 2006 under the penname “O’finky,” was born in New York, where he attended the Hebrew Academy of Nassau County as a boy. He continued his religious training in South Florida until his family, needlessly fearing that he would become a Rabbi, transferred him to public school. It was in the Hebrew day school where the young O’finky was strongly encouraged to write and exercise his imagination. Later, he managed to weather a stormy academic career at the University of Florida, where writing creatively was strongly discouraged. As an undergraduate, majoring in pre-med, English, and philosophy, each department strongly “advising” him to switch to another, he finally graduated with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy and a master’s degree in education.

After teaching math and science at various primary school levels for a few years, despite some fond regrets, O’finky left teaching for osteopathic medical school in West Virginia. After graduating as a D.O. in 1981, he moved back to the Tampa Bay area where he completed his internship and still practices and teaches family medicine. As a physician, the author became very active in the early ‘90’s desperately promoting to his largely deaf colleagues and to his patients the idea of rescuing Medicare from the hands of the greedy lobbies. In 2006, at the urging of his imaginative physician assistant, he started publishing a political blog, “The O’finky Factor.”

Writing as “O’finky,” the honorary name bestowed upon him by his Irish friend and the wonderful people he met in Ireland, the author’s articles have always been marked by great controversy and some have been republished in places as far away as Russia and South America. As Allen Finkelstein, O’finky has published some forty five articles in OpEdNews. A lifelong liberal Democrat, nonetheless his writing tends to decry the party’s penchant for trying to promote a righteous agenda far too quickly for acceptance by a moderate public, thus impeding the very progress which they so desperately seek. Ironically, it is the painstaking revelation that people would rather believe the truth hidden in fiction rather than in facts that was the inspiration for his first novel, The President’s Ledger, published in 2013.

A Message to the Democratic Party with a Small Reminder to Rand Paul Being philosophical, being right, is simply not enough! Without being practical, the road to ruin is paved with good intentions and strewn with "bodies" of far too many of our best men and women figuratively and literally sacrificed for a "good cause."

Wants And Needs Revisited During the recent contest for DNC chairman, I found myself hoping that Tom Perez would come out the winner. I find Keith Ellison to be one of the most likable and energetic congressmen to come on the scene in many years. I find Perez equally sincere and engaging. Both seem to have boundless energy and both seem to attribute poor Democratic presidential and congressional showings to lack of sufficient "boots on the ground"..

Basic Arithmetic for Beginners There are few things in life more dependable and, at the same time, less respected than basic arithmetic. The majority of Republicans want to increase military spending by some 54 billion dollars. They want to cut taxes. They want to eliminate "Obamacare" and substitute what would appear to be an even more expensive alternative, given that medical costs were rising at an even higher rate before the ACA was instituted...

The Un-Christian "Christian" Nation The country won't collapse because of a bunch of hard-working family-oriented inhabitants. As usual, the problem with Congress is not something new. Both parties are abjectly ignorant, bordering on stupid at times, and unable to write coherent laws. And, Mr. Pence, do I need to remind you, who profess to be a devout Christian, that the families your party is proudly destroying are almost all your own Christian brethren?

Republicans or Americans? It was truly a relief to find out that Vice President Pence did not actually lie about General Flynn's discussions with the Russian ambassador regarding U.S. sanctions against the Russians. It means that the vice president did not lie, that actually it was the president who withheld the truth from Pence, thereby throwing his own vice president "under the bus."

Let's Look Back Before Looking Forward Many years from now, I hope that students of history will not look back at the 2016 presidential race in complete confusion. If they do, it will mean that we have solved none of the massive political and social problems that we face.

Let's Be Perfectly Clear As Bernie Sanders often says, "let's be perfectly clear:" The Affordable Care Act is an inadvertent attempt to delay the demise of the private health insurance industry.

Letter to Bernie Sanders I, like many concerned Americans appreciate your very real concern for the actual problems confronting the majority of Americans. I agree in theory with the concept and dire necessity for a single payer healthcare system.
