Manafort... What If

What if... the jury returns with a not guilty or even no verdict? What if... the judge's shenanigans are ignored with no reversal? What if... we have to accept that there is a large enough segment of people who are unwilling or just blind to any unlawful or unethical act to anything related to Trump? What if... the Mueller probe loses steam and people lose its patience with it? What if... the combination of a good economy and blemish on Mueller's record starts to boost Trump's appeal?   Now I believe the case against Manafort is airtight, but I don't matter. Now I believe that the Trump administration is the most corrupt since Nixon, but I don't matter. It's what's in the soul of many Americans that matter.   Just stop and think about that for a second... and it should scare us all.

Big Brother Don And The

Has anyone else noted the tendency of those wrapping themselves in "liberty", the flag, and Bible are always shilling for the Orwellian agenda of the far Right and economic elites?   I pulled out my old copy of "1984", just to see how far we've descended as a nation. The frightening realization…

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT EUROPE

  As people here know I'm European. Even though Switzerland is not in the EU (thankfully), and my nationality is Swiss, I define myself as an European. Why ? Because Europe is SMALL. And yes, dear Americans, I'm NOT a "Caucasian", because that mountain range is very far east where Asia meets E…

What Rules the Rulers?

Aldous Huxley published Brave New World in 1932.  The novel describes a futuristic society that boasts a world government with the motto “Community, Identity, Stability.”  The year is After Ford 632, and babies are decanted rather than born.  Eugenics has been refined to t…

Effie

Please allow me to tell you a short story about a very special relationship.  It's one of the relationships where you don't realize how special it was until many years after it ends.  No relationship lasts forever. At some point, either mortally, morally, or otherwise, somebody leaves.…

It is neither your right, nor your responsibility

Whether you like or hate President Trump is irrelevant.  He is the president.  He was duly elected and there is no constitutional excuse to say he wasn't.   You don't have to like him.  You don't have to like his policies.  You don't even have to like his mouth or his twitte…

Fake News: Nothing to Fear if You Can Think

The problem in America is not fake news; it’s not journalists with an agenda, it’s not secret backroom meetings of newspaper editors crafting the most critical, or the most praiseworthy, headlines about the President. We have met the enemy, and it is ourselves. The New York Times, Boston…

Yes Virginia, There is a God Who Speaks

St Paul writes "you should desire the special abilities the Spirit gives--especially the ability to prophesy." (1 Cor 14:1) For a Christian, prophesying is speaking out what God is speaking to them. Prophesying is normative.  The ability to prophesy is one of the most awesome experiences of bei…

In the Land of the Blind

There is an old saying that in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is King. There was also a guy a long place ago and in a time far away who reminded us daily that we knew a little bit, soon we would know “the rest of the story”. In the case of the one-eyed man in the land of the bli…

The Nuremberg Defense Was an Atheist Invention!

In his "Opening Statement before the International Military Tribunal" on November 21, 1945, Robert H Jackson offered this explanation as to why, in their so-called Nuremberg Defense, Nazi war criminals sought "refuge in superior orders [and] in the doctrine that [their] crimes were acts of states": …

Obvious Obligations to Our Offspring

A new technology that will change the world has emerged, called CRISPR, an acronym for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeat. While the mechanics of this technology are an essay all by itself, suffice to say that it is a technique that alters genes, the formula for life in DNA. Di…

As a woman I despise working with women

Too many women make for too many b*tches. Women are competitive, especially with other women, and it then morphs into tribalism. There is science that proves this but the simple fact is those that experience could care less about the science since it is of little comfort. I can pick apart any woman …

Designer Babies - Straight Off The Shelf!!

I consider the question of personhood to be a "gray area" debate. That is, there is a range of changes between being a cell and being a person and it is arbitrary and pointless to debate about where exactly personhood begins. To claim, as some do, that a single cell has rights that trump a mother's …

If consent of the governed means anything, we have to apply the Constitution in the way the people who ratified it understood it.   Otherwise we are imposing laws nobody consented to, which is tyranny.  It's easy to say that people who object to decisions like Roe v Wade and Obergfell…

We want the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth - and that is precisely the problem.
