Has Common Sense Left The Building?

I’ve told my wife and friends several times in the recent past. I no longer have my cool stroll. Some, not me, would call it a pimp walk. But most dudes from my era (the sixties) had the stroll walk. For that matter, it goes beyond the sixties. A perfect example of that was the…

Social Media is getting a bad Reputation

Some in this country would like for you and me, let’s call us the common folk to disregard social media. They especially want us to disregard main media who has embraced the computer age to report their stories. A few years ago, newspapers, magazines, and TV broadcasters depended solely on print media to disseminate the…

BOBSA and the new EBHA

I’ve interviewed Sam Ennon, BOBSA Founder and CO more than a few times over the last couple of years for my Blog Talk Radio Show. In fact, after hearing his opinions through another interview, I conducted; I called him to request a sole interview about BOBSA. During the phone call, I found him to be…

Too Many NFL Games & Injuries

Specifically, written examples of miscommunication between people or loved ones.  It’s a personal irritation of mine. I don’t mind calling out people and family members who don’t communicate with me or each other. Or, at the very least do…

It’s Much Deeper Than The Donald’s Audio Tape

Wow! It took an audio tape where the Donald was clearly heard talking about grouping women in general and one woman in particular. A tape where he actually used the P word when referring to a woman’s gentiles.  That’s where numerous elected  Republicans, some who are running for office on this year’s ballot draw the…

Will You Cast Your Vote For Our Country?

One Trump supporter said that his candidate won the first thirty-six minutes of Monday night’s debate. He touted his slamming of Mrs. Clinton on the trade pacts that are so unpopular with a majority of US blue collar workers. Personally, I thought it was the first twenty minutes or so and she responded in a…

ACT’s Symposium Request for Dialog

ACT (Antioch Community Team) sponsored a symposium that I attended last Saturday evening. The issues of why police are shooting and killing black folks at an alarming rate of consistency were the topic. The flyer advertisement spoke directly to the events purpose. Noting that “The primary goal of the symposium is to have a proactive…
