I have 14 fans: Become a Fan. You'll get emails whenever I post articles on OpEdNews
My Bio is as varied as my life. Approx. 4 years ago my twin sons murdered a Journalist in Pensacola, Fl., for 100K worth of "Magic The Gathering" playing cards and buried the body in my backyard. I was once a regular writer here, but PTSD from my son's actions took their toll. First, I lost everything I had. Second, I lost my fiancee. Third, I almost lost my life. Recovery has been a hard and lonesome road, and it isn't quite over yet. I will overcome this disaster as I have others, and return to college to resume my quest to receive a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism.
Google's Algorithms Need Human Intervention
Social media has turned out to be a nightmare lately, not just for me, but for millions of other Americans as well. Our elections, our democracy, and are lives are all on social media, and we often fall between the cracks of their flawed technology.

Where Are All Of the Heroes & Patriots?
Heroes and Patriots are in short demand these days. Those who could save us, the GOP, are too busy destroying our Social Services Safety Net. The sheer greed is palpable when you see the glee in their face as they count the money that will flow into their coffers from Corporate America.

Forcing the Mainstream News Media to Quit with the Clinton Bias
We are facing a crisis in this nation. The 1%, Corporate America, and Multinational Corporations are supporting Clinton and the Media bias is hurting the Sanders Campaign. It is time that we fight with all we have to save the heart and soul of the country we love and to force them out of our politics so the people can once again govern this country.

The Dynamics of Super Tuesday are Changing Faster than Clinton can Flip-Flop!
We can still help to change the dynamic of Super Tuesday in a manner that will even the odds for Bernie Sanders. All it takes it five to ten minutes for anyone reading this article, and I cannot stress enough that participation is key to this endeavor. Once this is in print, I have some very influential Twitter followers that I hope will choose to join this cause.

The Plutocrats Have Declared War On America!
"Fair and open" elections have been taken away from the people by the Plutocrats. They have turned a Political Revolution into a declaration of War against the American people. We have to fight with every ounce of personal abilities, using the strength of others to compliment your personal attributes. United we Stand, Divided we Fall. Freedom is not Free!
Terror In Paris From ISIS In Retaliation for Syria
Shootings and explosions were reported in six locations across the city, including the Stade de France in northern Paris, where two suicide attacks and a bombing took place as the national team played Germany in a friendly football match.
Open Letter to President Obama In Regard Survelliance
An article posted on CNN which contains several statements made by you make this second Open Letter to the President of the United States rather unique, and unfortunately, necessary. I will attempt to be as short as possible. millions of Americans would be grateful for an answer to, and if you dare, I challenge you to answer the few questions and respond to the commentary that I am offering to your interview with CNN.

Mad enough To Kill - Part Three - The Disease Is Revealed
Violence in this nation is rising to the point of absurdity, and it isn't happening only in the United States, but throughout the Global Community. We have been researching this issue with a vigor you cannot imagine as I search for rhyme or reason why my own twin sons are in Florida awaiting trial for murder and robbery. We believe we have found part of the problem, and it's a disease and you may have it yourself!
Our Nation's Hypocritical Stance On The OWS Protestors And The Futility Of The 1% Writing Our Legislation
The real outrage is that we recently found out through alternative news sources that Congress can legally engage in Insider Trading, a felony if you or I do it, and even so on Wall Street when they have to present the public with an "example" to demonstrate that our In-Justice Department is protecting the 99% rather than looking the other way when it comes to the real criminals -- those whom actually profited from and caused
This Isn't Politics -- It's A Crime Being Perpetrated Against The American People
The GOP and Tea Party have taken the stand that no matter what harm befalls this nation, they will not advance any legislation that makes President Obama or the Democrats "look Good" even if it destroys the rest of our economy. Is that politics, or is it blackmail and extortion, or to a lesser degree, dereliction of duty to their oaths of office - which should be cause for their removal from Congress?
Inglorious, Seditious GOP Bastards; Tar And Feathers Is Too Good For Their Ilk
Numerous Fox affiliates and an ABC affiliate are broadcasting a vicious 25-minute infomercial that accuses President Barack Obama of harboring "hostility" towards America and ties him to malicious rhetoric. This is the most outrageous set of lies and innuendo that I have ever read. When they attempt to paint Obama as a Hamas sympathizer I believe it borders on sedition.

Obama Administration Is Handing-Over California's Midterm Election To The GOP
The Obama Administration sent a message to every voter in the United States this week which clearly states that it's useless to go to the polls and that our votes are meaningless especially those of California voters, one of our nation's largest Democratic States. It appears that America is dealing with another "Imperialistic Presidency" that each and every day is closely resembling that of the Bush Administration;

International Concern Over Iceland's Katla Volcano Erupting Soon Is Justified
Based on historic information, Iceland's Katla Volcano could erupt at any time. It has a history of erupting within six months after an Eyjafjallajökull eruption or as long as one year.
Unfortunately, as dangerous as this volcano is and its history of erupting within months of the Eyjafjallajökull Volcano is disturbing knowing that the Katla Volcano is 10 times more powerful than Eyjafjallajökull.
An Alternative Rationale For Low Grades In School And Rising Drug Abuse
By now you're probably asking yourselves why I intertwined the failure of our school systems and drug abuse in the same article. Bear with me and I will illustrate why I believe both issues are intrinsically related, if not directly or indirectly caused by many of the same social issues and problems that affect almost the whole of the United States.

Pew Research Center Shows Elites Have Destroyed America's Middle-Class
Is Fascism Winning Over Democracy? For all practical purposes, the Mainstream News Media in the United is misleading the public and acting as a government propaganda tool. Vital polls and assessments of the true impact of the Ruling Class War on America is non-existent, and I'm concerned that we are losing the class war - and losing it badly.

Geithner And Government Protect Wall Street And Dump Main Street For India
Timothy Geithner, while on a two-day visit to India, pledged that our government would "not (to) harm India's IT outsourcing sector as it battles to create jobs at home in the worst labour market since the Great Depression of the 1930s." He went on to state that "protectionist measures to prevent jobs from migrating outside the country would do more harm to the US than good." (SIC)

The Michael Jackson Effect And "Pill Mills"
The DEA is using fear and intimidation to force physicians to quit prescribing, or drastically lower the dosages of drugs that are medically necessary for some chronic pain and anxiety patients and is referred to by Chronic Pain Clinics as the "Michael Jackson Effect."

CRIME DOES PAY When It Involves Medicare/Medicaid Fraud

Google Leads The World In Corporate Ethics; Who Will Follow Their Example?
For the second time in four years, Google has demonstrated that they lead the world in corporate ethics and utilize a business model based on "Don't be Evil." I would imagine that many of us are hoping that the ethics Google subscribes to in running their own Corp. will help to set the standard for other company's who lack the courage and integrity that Google has demonstrated - even when it could hurt their profits.
How Do We Open A Public Dialogue That Discusses How To Save Our Republic From Disaster?
There is a growing discontent with the government by the average American, and a whopping Eighty-Six Percent (86%) believe that our government is broken. To add to the public's belief that our government is broken and in dire need of immediate repair, we learn that: A majority of Americans believe that the federal government is "an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens," a new poll suggests.

Real Cause Of Tension Between China And USA Is Not Being Reported By MSM
The tension between China and the U.S. has been escalating for years; the reasons are complicated and fraught with several underlying issues that neither party will publicly admit, and as usual, our Mainstream News Media is keeping its citizens in the dark. Some of the tension is a grave matter of national security, and one issue was substantiated/discovered by Shawn Carpenter, a courageous employee of Sandia National Labs

How Could We Forgot The Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act?
All of us need to remember Senate Bill S-1959 and House Bill 1955. The "Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007″ was one of the most egregious assaults on the freedom and liberty of Americans that had ever been presented to Congress. (Notwithstanding the Patriot (Sic) Act.) It took hard work, and as people began to grasp the impact of this bill we can now state that overall, it was a success!
Iran's Mixed Message; Does Iran Pose A Real Threat To Israel And Europe?
The situation in Iran is deteriorating and the winds of war are beginning to blow... Iran seems to believe they can play nuclear brinkmanship somewhat like North Korea, however, they didn't have an Israel to contend with, and the Israeli's are bound and determined not to be the victims of another holocaust.

Is It Time To Cross Partisan Lines and Unite To Fight A Common Enemy?
One phrase entered my mind, “Together we Stand, Divided we fall,” and that is what is occurring in our nation. We are being divided and fighting amongst one another, and while we're busy shouting accusations at the so-called opposition, our economy is being plundered and our nation is being conquered by the combined forces of Democrats and Republicans who are working together for corporate America - not “We the People."

The Wealthy Begin Tumbling Down With No End In Sight
Their arrogance and greed was mind-numbing as they outsourced America's light and heavy manufacturing to increase their bottom lines, but they forgot to factor the American consumer into their quest for money - and instead of acknowledging that the United States was the largest consumer of goods in the world, it takes money to purchase those items, necessities and luxuries alike - and in order to keep on buying,

Is President Obama Being Set-Up For Assassination? UPDATE 2
We know from prior news reports that President Obama receives approximately three (3) death threats per day, more than any other President in history! Death threats by themselves don't concern me, as the Secret Service has the ability to protect a President in present day times unlike the period when JFK was assassinated. My concern is the Mainstream News Media. When the MSM begins to run this story, suspicion is warranted.

President Obama, Your Administration Is Embracing Fascism
It is shocking that President Obama, knowing that the MSM is controlled by corporate America, is not doing anything to break this strangle-hold on on what is supposed to be news - but is propaganda. It's extremely sad that instead of appealing to the public - he went to the top corporate owners rather than the networks themselves when they were hesitant to broadcast his health care press conference.

The Radicalization Of America By GOP Operatives And America's Future, Part 1
I have always been a strong critic of the government spying on American citizens, however, today I am engaging in an abrupt about face - and I'll explain my rationale for supporting limited spying on American citizens. It is imperative that the government take action against these radical groups in order to ensure that our democratic process is not disrupted.I have always been a strong critic of the government spying on Americ

Important Facts You May Not Know About No Child Left Behind
We believe that our federal civil rights have been violated and that "No Child Left Behind" is wholly unconstitutional when money is a greater factor in a child's development rather than their actual performance and health. As always in this country, money trumps parent's rights and common sense.

Update On Earthquakes And Volcanic Activity Marching Northward
For those who live on the West Coast of the United States, I believe that a solid pattern has now established itself as I predicted in "Volcanic Activity Appears To Be Working It's Way Around The "Ring of Fire"- UPDATED."- Furthermore, after conducting countless hours of research and combing through geological data, I substantiated my claims when I posted: Disaster Lurks On Our Doorstep, And Americans Shrug!

Is China Weaponizing Plague that Can Kill Within 24 Hours?
Pneumonic plague poses a potentially increasing risk to humans in plague nonendemic regions either as a consequence of an aerosolized release or through importation of the disease. Pneumonic plague is person-to-person transmissible. How did China recognize this disease and control it so swiftly if they were not aware that it was coming - especially when it broke out in a remote area of China where they are known to hold their

Obama's Health Care Plan Is Being Crafted To Profit Big Pharma And Other Corporate Interests
I erroneously believed that supporting Obama would be "the lesser of the two evils." Looking back and now forward, it appears that the Obama Administration is simply an extension of the Bush administration, albeit with more finesse' and eloquence - but nevertheless, Obama now appears to be nothing more than another lying politician who beguiled America with his charm and charisma.

Not Prosecuting Bush/Cheney Could Spell The End Of Democracy
If we fail to prosecute Bush/Cheney and their cabal of accomplices for the innumerable crimes against the U.S. and the global community, there's no question that we risk our own freedom and liberty. We made the mistake in the 1930's by not prosecuting Prescott Bush and the Wall Street traitors that sought to overthrow our government - and now we are faced with the same scenario again, when it could have been avoided.

Who Poses The Most Danger To World Peace, Iran, North Korea, or Russia/China?
One thing is certain. The Bush administration has left the world more unstable than any time in my memory, and if Barack Obama is forced to take radical action to solve an issue which only force will resolve - we can thank the Bush administration for placing "land mines" throughout the world where the Obama administration is attempting to mend fences and bring back some trust and credibility to the United States

Torture and Abuse are as American as Apple Pie
As long as we continue to torture people in the United States, how can we expect that we will quit torturing "Enemy Combatants?" I have been a victim of torture myself and I know that it does happen, and until we clean-up our own act in America's reform schools and prisons - it is a natural progression to torture those who have been deemed to be enemies of The United States.

Social Services In Georgia Is Collapsing And Their Legal System Punishes The Sick And Disadvantaged
California is not the only state experiencing problems with their finances. Georgia's division of Family Services has had massive budget cuts and the state is forcing long time employees to quit as their workloads increase and their staff in some counties has been cut in half while their caseloads are rising at an unprecedented rate. The state is also misusing their truancy laws to punish families who have had sick children.
As the Economy Worsens, A New America Is Emerging, Part 1
During the last year or two, I have watched America's "Corapacy" take out their losses out on the public rather than using tried and true methods that enhance profitability that have a propensity to stabilize the economy in general; Greed, a message that tells America that we "don't count" is now the standard rather than an aberration.

'When You Grow up on a Farm in Georgia, Your First Girlfriend Is a Mule'
I'm compelled to stand-up for my fellow Georgian's and make a few things clear. No, "When you grow up on a farm in Georgia, your first girlfriend is (not) a mule!" For a man that is seeking the governorship of Georgia, it seems unfair that he would seek to rationalize his aberrant behavior by claiming that it's the "norm" on Georgia farms. I wish that bestiality was the least of his issues, but this man believes in murder too.

Are We Witnessing The Birth Of A Pandemic?
Because of the situation, the World Health Organization planned to consider raising the world pandemic flu alert to 4 from 3. Such a high level of alert - meaning that sustained human-to-human transmission of a new virus has been detected - has not been reached in recent years, even with the H5N1 avian flu circulating in Asia and Egypt, and would "really raise the hackles of everyone around the world," said Dr. Robert G.

Norton Anti-Virus Fails The Test - Beat by Free Software!
It's with a certain amount of sadness that I write this review, as I've been a loyal Norton customer for years and sold thousands of dollars of their software as it emerged as the best anti-virus software on the market. Some of their utilities are top-of-the line, however lately, Norton Anti-Virus has been failing on several levels. It isn't what it used to be, and that could wind-up costing you real money if you have a virus.

Chuck Norris Is Advocating Armed Insurrection Against The United States
But now it's 2009, Barack Obama is in the White House, and the inventor of chun kuk (Chuck Norris) do is preaching the martial art of insurrection against the U.S. government. He also wants to run for - and no, I'm not making this up - "the president of Texas.": Violence is not the answer, and a civil war would guarantee that Martial Law would be declared in the United States.
Tighten Your Seat Belts - This Recession Is Turning Into Another Great Depression!
Now that the "Stimulus" has been passed by the Senate, and we know what is contained in the package, it is obvious that the next round of this financial meltdown is guaranteed to cause the financial community to request more taxpayer money to "bailout" themselves from the billions in credit card and auto loan defaults that are already beginning to occur; for those of you that have the means, it's now time to prepare

Congress: Stop The Gouging On Gas Prices By Greedy Wall Street Speculators!
In the article posted by MSNBC which is quoted above, speculators were cited as one of the reasons for the price increases. The American public is tired of being gouged; in this economy, every penny counts, and gas is a commodity that each and every American that own a car has to buy, so naturally, it is a target for greedy Wall Street speculators who have already been responsible for a lot of our economic woes.

Free Trade Is A Misnomer; So-Called Protectionism Is A Matter of Self Survival
Opting to outsource our light and heavy manufacturing, from the very beginning was destined to destroy our economy and turn us into a "service-based" economy", which we now know has destroyed the "American Dream" for millions of our citizens and has effectively destroyed our Middle-class. In order to pull this economy out of the toilet, it is vital to restore our light and heavy manufacturing base.
