Working as an urban educator for over 25 years--I 'moonlight' as a writer. I write part-time for The Huffington Post and enjoy the task of curmudgeon,(at least where career politicians are concerned). I consider myself a political independent who is absolutely convinced that the '2-party' system has got to go. As my hero, I.F. Stone once said; "all governments lie." I merely wish to point out the lies, especially the incredibly stupid ones.

Drone Wars, DOJ Death Squads and the White Paper Secret laws and secret courts have replaced the Bill of Rights, with the president now claiming the right to serve as judge, jury and executioner to alleged terrorists or those who would grant material support.
