Timestamp: The very early afternoon (EST) of Monday March 20, 2023. The timestamp is necessary because many of the events discussed below either have just happened and I am not aware of the outcome(s) or will happen in the future. In some cases, between writing and publishing. They will be historic; just how historic and where in history they will land is yet to be determined. I’m also not naïve enough to believe that immediate reports will be sans a lot of window-dressing and secrets.

A Lot Going On
A lot has been going on over the past few days. The British got a new Prime minister, Queen Elizabeth passed, Charles became the King of England, (if anyone thinks that UK news falls on deaf eyes and blind eyes in America, they haven’t been paying attention), the NFL regular season started and Trump investigation/scandal number “hey, even I lost track” broke; just to mention a few.

Of Politics And Personal Conduct
Culture starts at the top in large government entities as it does in any other organization. That is why I’m in favor of putting CEO’s in prison when companies willfully violate laws. Putting a plant manager or middle level executive in jail doesn’t change the culture or prevent future occurrences. Whether we like it or not Donald Trump is the President and Mike Pence is the Vice President and therefore in terms of structure and succession number two. They both lack the skill of leadership, their personal conduct illustrates it and the federal government reflects it. Let’s explore. Continue reading Of Politics And Personal Conduct
Simply Splendid – A Book Review And Announcement
I believe this is a first of a kind article for tellthetruthonthem.com and I know the announcement is unique. I do a lot of reading and the “confinement to quarters” necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic has only increased my reading volume, (in my opinion, one of the good outcomes.) Normally when I add a book to the Recommended Reading list I simply put out a brief notice. A recent book so moved me that I felt it was necessary to write an article dedicated to it after adding it to the list last week Thursday. I’ll tease you with the announcement until the end. Let’s explore. Continue reading Simply Splendid – A Book Review And Announcement
