Were two-thirds of US terrorism in 2017 tied to right-wing extremists?

This has been a common assertion recently on social media.  It most often is linking the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) which has found itself in many controversies over the last decade as it has become more a political tool to mislabel those it disagrees with on policies.  While that would be a worthy discussion, … Continue reading

I’m fed up.

In March, 2014, a friend from childhood reached out to me and asked me to write a speech for a character in a book he was writing.  I was able to write the speech in one evening as most of it came from the heart.  He never completed the book so I’m posting the speech … Continue reading

Trump did not say Nazis were “fine people.”

One of the many ongoing myths generated and perpetuated by the main stream media is Trump said some Nazis/white supremacists were fine people.  This was done by the media bombarding Trump with questions at a news conference about infrastructure.  The media was constantly interrupting him.  They then selectively edited some of his comments to make … Continue reading

The United States of America was founded on the belief that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”. The entire world was guilty of enslaving their own and others for over 4,000 years (and that’s … Continue reading
