USA Healthcare


The times are certainly changing, or so it seems. US Senator, VT Bernie Sanders unveiled his long-anticipated legislation to create a national single-payer health system with the support from 15 Democratic Senate co-sponsors.

His Single-Payer government-run health care system is an idea which is gaining ground among Democrats who are seen as possible presidential candidates. https://youtu.be/e7qQ6_RV4VQ https://youtu.be/OUOOrUsXBWI

Battered After Storms


Shell shocked coastal communities are trying to respond to death and destruction caused in Texas, Florida and throughout the Caribbean.

In the US, Florida and Texas are some of the largest states with the most hurricane damage as a result of Hurricane drenching rains and the damaging storm surge. This is climate change, not fake news, folks.

Never Forget


For many, 16 years ago today on September 11, 2001, was going to be the first day of the rest of their lives. A day that will live in infamy. It was a dark day in US history, as nearly 3,000 people died when hijackers commandeered airplanes and slammed them into NYC's World Trade Center, US Pentagon and a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, hating Americans into a new consciousness and the real threat of international terrorism.

Hurricane Irma


There's nothing sober, gentle, or sedate about Irma's arrival to the US mainland. As the category 4 hurricane begins an assault on Key West, it is expected to take its time drenching the Florida flatlands.

If there is anyone in the area and finds the winds going calm, you're in the eye, but do not go out. Stay inside! Winds dramatically shift and will do so violently! STAY PUT

Equifaxed R US


One of the nation's major credit reporting agencies has announced a massive hack potentially exposing the sensitive personal and financial information of 143 million Americans who have credit reports.

Hackers accessed names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses, and in some instances, driver's license numbers and credit card numbers. This is one of the gravest breaches of consumers' information ever.

Catastrophic Crosshairs


An imperfect storm with heavy rains and massive crosswinds has caused a deep state of confusion for Florida, which has it in its crosshairs after it devastated portions of The Caribbean.

Hurricane Irma has been downgraded to a Category 4 status after the eye of the storm was moving over Cuba's Camaguey Archipelago.

This extremely catastrophic storm is expected to make landfall in Florida tomorrow morning. Most of South Florida is under a hurricane warning, and the governors of four Southeast states have now declared emergencies.

The Bible - The News


This writing exercise begins as a way to mend my mind, body, soul, and a broken heart which aches for all of those who are suffering as a result of Mother Nature's wrath.

Lobster Ice Cream


My wife and her younger sister suggested we all drive from NYC to Maine on a Lobster vacation. We did and had a marvelous Maine journey as well as enjoyed fresh lobsters, rolls, bisque and so many other delicacies that I could go on and on.

However, I found two interestingly unique items, and I will mention them here. Lobster macaroni and cheese, which was actually very tasty and lobster ice cream, but I had to pass.

Plane or Train


I once had a boss who liked to say you're either on my train or you'll be standing in front of it. This philosophy appears to be similar to what the president and his advisers follow in terms of political logic.
