What Is Really Wrong With The U.S.A.!

It seems like for decades, that simple question as been asked on every side of the political fence. “What is wrong with this country?” is a question asked from sea to shining sea. Depending on who you ask, it can be a short or long list and it is always one thing or another but…

I Am A Liberal Who Might Not Be Liberal Enough

These days, liberals, libertarians, conservatives have pretty much lost all meaning. Now it is Neo-Socialist this and Neo-Fascist that or anarchists or for some they just boil it down to “That’s stupid”.

DEEPWATER Horizon, Oil and Greed

I just finished watching the Deepwater Horizon movie and as someone who grew up in the East Texas Oilfield, I felt a lot of sympathy for those men.
