Trump the New Wife

Let’s imagine for a moment that you got a divorce and later met someone new that you fell in love with. Let’s say that this new love in your life already had children from a first marriage and that they ranged in age from 10 to 18 years of age. Let’s also say that you are enthusiastically focused...

The Summer of 2017

Many years ago, I forget how long ago now, I was looking ahead at the future. I was going along, one year at a time, just looking for anything I thought might be a significant event or turning point. I saw lots of things, but the one thing that stood out in my mind was that when I got to 2017, th...

Immaturity Among Nations

I have to laugh. The new trend in inflammatory rhetoric is complaining about other countries that "interfere” in national policy or procedures. First, it was the U.S. blasting Russia for the alleged hacking of Clinton emails. The latest is China blasting the U.S. because we invited Taiwanese dele...

Media, Truth, and Perception

The hero's journey is a journey that involves: 1. Making a choice – either knowingly or inadvertentl...

People Voted for Change in Government...Not in the Electoral College!!

People are pushing the idea of removing the Electoral College!?! IMHO this is a very bad idea. The Electoral College was formed with an eye to preventing any possibility of groups of states with selfish regional interests from ganging up on smaller states or states far away from their problems a...

Act One - Worries about the Donald

I was in bed and almost asleep at 10:26 last night when my iPad began going off. A student wrote: “OMG heaven help us!! This election is nailbiting!! WHAT did the Robes see in Trump over a woman (Clinton)?” I wrote back: “LOL, it isn’t about Trump vs. Clinton. It is about consciousness. It i...

Underneath the Election Drama

I am watching the current election drama with great interest and a sense of the appalling. What appalls me is not Hillary’s corruption or Trump’s pompousness, it is how few people seem to recognize what is going on and what is at stake. I don’t want to get into a long story about my sources, but ...
