Hate

Embarrassed. That’s how I felt awhile back when I came across the ADL’s (Anti-Defamation League) so-called ‘Pyramid of Hate.’  How could an organization focused on preventing genocide fail to understand how genocides occur, and, with disturbing irony, in particular the genocide against the Jews under the Nazis?  Since they were not ashamed at their ignorance, […]

So you say you want to replace Obamacare…

No one listens to me.  I get that.  Still, I would like to go on record right now predicting continued dysfunction in America’s health system.  This dysfunction is generated by our collective refusal to come to grips with the real world.   Normally, I’d have to direct my comments towards liberals and progressives, but right now […]

The Coming Nightmare of the Trump Presidency

This is one of the least pleasant pieces I have ever sat down to write.  I am forcing myself to do it.   I feel the warning must be issued, although my sense is that those who would heed it, need it least. Many people are encouraged by the election of Donald J. Trump.  To them, […]

“After the Ball” Reflections: Actually, homosexuality IS a Choice?!?!?!?

I’ve been spending a fair bit of time acquiring and analyzing books that advocate for manipulating people.  Not, as you might be thinking, so I can manipulate people, but because I find manipulation to be disgusting, vile behavior.  It is prima facie evidence of that the manipulator is a bad actor.  Bad actors should be […]
