This Was The Biggest

Two hundred forty-six years ago today America declared its independence and a few years later with the adoption of the Constitution became a republic (think: representative democracy). That basically means that the majority rules. Today the America I know is in jeopardy because of an out of control Supreme Court that is openly defying the will of the vast majority of the people and is working to take them out of the equation. In recent weeks the outcry against the Court has been large and vocal. I maintain that their most dastardly deed went somewhat unexplored except in very liberal circles. That is the main subject of today’s article and the biggest political story of the week just passed. Continue reading This Was The Biggest

Another Installment Of The Administration We Can’t Ignore

Today’s article is another destined to be inadequate attempt to catch up on the recent sins of the Trump administration. I would really like to just ignore this organized criminal enterprise until it goes away. That is also what they, along with Vladimir Putin, would like me to do so that they could perpetrate their evil deeds in relative obscurity until it proved to be too late. Let’s explore.   Continue reading Another Installment Of The Administration We Can’t Ignore

To me it is the second most significant date in American history. Why isn’t it a national holiday?     Continue reading Why Isn’t Today A National Holiday?

A Call For Patriots

Today is Independence Day or as it is more commonly known in America the Fourth of July. On this date in 1776 a small group of brave Americans risked their lives by signing a Declaration of Independence from England on the behalf of their fellow American colonists. To this day the Constitution serves as the basis of law in America. It was unveiled to the public on September 17, 1787. It wasn’t the law of the land until New Hampshire was the ninth state to ratify it on June 21, 1788. On May 29, 1790 Rhode Island was the thirteenth and final state to ratify it. Contrary to right wing mythology the founders, let alone the original citizens, were far from a homogeneous group of like thinkers. However they designed an experiment in democracy that has endured and become more perfect over the ensuing decades. Today I fear for the future of a democratic America. Let’s explore.
