THE DANGEROUS CASE OF DONALD TRUMP

THE DANGEROUS CASE OF DONALD TRUMP



This is must reading for anyone concerned for the country's well being under the leadership of Donald Trump. Twenty seven psychiatrist specifically look over almost 30 years of tapes, newspaper articles and social media to evaluate Donald Trump as Commander-In-Chief and the picture isn't pretty. What they write is hardly a surprise for any watching his first 297 of Trump's time in the Oval Office. Already there are doubts regarding Trump's stability… Continue

Ain’t No Such Thing

A “Holy War” is the same as being “pretty ugly”, it is an oxymoron used as a fancy suit to dress up a pig of human behavior that under any circumstances would be viewed as primitive, animalistic and bloodthirsty.

This high-sounding term is…

GET THAT SON OF A BITCH OUT OF OFFICE

Normally, I stay out of politics but Saturday Donald Trump jumped into an area that he has no understanding of and as a black man I was peeved enough to write this. I hate to bother you with it but I've posted it…

Revelations: Visions, Prophecy, and Politics in the Book of Revelation: Book Review

Revelations is easily one of the most controversial books in the Bible because of it's phantasmagoric and hallucinatory imagery as well as its catastrophic end of the world scenarios. Elaine Pagels brings together a book that is a literary mess as well as Halloween childishness. Nevertheless, her research into its history is impeccable.

It is difficult to bring together a book, such as Revelations, that is at…

NOTHING LIKE A GOOD WAR

For all their sanctimonious talk of pro-life, the Evangelical Right likes nothing better than a good war. When the bombs start falling and the bullets flying, the Christian Right becomes orgasmic at the prospect of death and destruction as many believe that war with North Korea will lead to Armageddon predicted the…

Where Were You?

Where were you when 150 mph winds and record rains visited Houston. Where were you when people drowned when the water created currents strong enough to sweep away pickup trucks. Where were you when 52 inches of water destroyed homes and killed more than 70 people. Where were you when two-week-old babies drowned or…

Intelligent Design?

I did something I rarely do at a debate—I lost my temper. Normally, I can let ignorance roll like water off a duck’s back, but sometimes there are such stunning and dazzling displays of dunce-hood that make it hard to catch your breath or focus clearly.

I debate regularly at a local “higher…

OH HOW I WISH

Asides from the promotion of ignorance, the embrace of intolerance, the perpetuation of fantasy, the encouragement of external reliance, the insistence of basing thought on dogma rather than fact, abetting belief in ghosts, gremlins and ghouls, the blatant demotion of women and its continued history of…

Girls Trip/Dunkirk Movie Reviews

Girls Trip: Movie Review:

Where to start with this one is difficult. I was dragged to see it by my wife. Well, I’m glad she did. “Girls Trip” is an uproarious film filled with ridiculosity, nasty comedy and excellent performances by Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Regina Hall, and Tiffany Haddish.…

THE DARK TOWER: MOVIE REVIEW

Occasionally I write movie reviews when I see one that is hyped or recommended. This one that I saw the hype and made up my mind to see it and I wasn't sorry.

Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), the last Gunslinger, is locked in an eternal battle with Walter O'Dim (Matthew McConaughey) to prevent O'Dim from toppling the Dark Tower, the key that holds the universe together. With the fate of worlds at stak…

Adultery is a Sin?

“The aura of the theocratic death penalty for adultery still clings to America, even outside New England, and multiple divorces, which looks to the European like serial polygamy, is the moral solution to the problem of the itch.”—Anthony Burgess

That adultery is a sin…

Silk Purses and Sow Ears

 

When explaining Biblical contradiction Christian apologists and their explanations range from the sublime to the ridiculous. An apologist is a defender of the faith, the…

Second Class Citizens: How the Church Contributes to Domestic Violence

 “One reason that men abuse their wives is because women rebel against their husband's God-given authority.” Bruce Ware, professor of Christian Theology, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY[1]

Whether a husband holds “God given authority” over his spouse is open to question, but the results of spousal abuse and domestic violence are not. Nearly one out of…

BE SURE OF WHAT YOU SPEAK

Recently, a friend on Facebook made a brave break by positing that Christianity hangs about the necks of African Americans like a millstone and is responsible for much pain and suffering. Of course, his claim was immediately rejected and shot down with some even saying that "My Jesus would never do such a…

Campaigning: Take Back Our Country

While campaigning I had a group (8-10) of protesters at my rally saying all sorts of things, which is their right. However, when they came to shouting “Take Back Our Country” I was deeply offended but I didn’t show it. Instead, I gave them a history lesson about “our”’ country starting with the genocide of Native American Indians through slavery. My trail is already difficult and my chances of winning are an…

I Haven't Croaked

I've been so busy trying to get new Congresspeople elected for the 2018 elections that I haven't come past. I have a bunch of stuff I want to drop out here for opinions and reactions. I'm also busy running for City Council. I call it working from the inside. I will start again in a few weeks.

TIED MY ASS

TIED MY ASS—I'm a day late and a dollar short in publishing this, because I wrote it over two months ago, which is a long time in political hogwash.

It's August and I'd be willing to bet my last dollar that by the time voting begins in November the media will say the…

THE TALK

THE TALK

Traditions pass along through family lines and are thought to bring unity and civilization in what can be a confusing world. During this dangerous time of white police killing blacks and blacks killing law enforcement officers perhaps it is far past time to speak of a family tradition passed along in most black…
