Billionaire Dreamer or Liar?

Tesla owner Elon Musk tries to back out of his $44 billion #Twitter buy, but the board is committed to the deal and pursues legal action.

The stage for a legal battle, could carry financial risks for the social network and further darken employee morale.

Did anyone really believe those #MAGA trolls and bots that Daddy Musk was going to Make Twitter Great Again? Is he just another grandstand mogul?

Miami’s Vice

Pay attention to human beings who corrupt and corrode their intimate, social, and political relationships. Lying is a criminal vice.

However, treachery, disloyalty, and cruelty are also crimes that politicians become engulfed in for the need for power. We’ve seen this in local, state, regional and national politics. 

The accursed vice and the most vile and all-corrupting of them all is lying. Since understanding is brought about by words, whoever breaks their word betrays society.

The S Word

Images

I have neighbors who are loud and appear to enjoy it when we hear them, their loud car, or their dog in what was a once quiet area.

They make dumb remarks or send ridiculous messages and don't realize what they are saying. Are loud people lonely, or bitter because they need to be noticed?

Whatever happened to the vow of silence? Silence is beautiful, unsettling, and one of the finest religious movies ever made

Martin Scorsese’s film keenly understands Shūsaku Endō’s novel and challenges believers and nonbelievers.

RIP James Caan

From his many eclectic roles in Elf to The Godfather, actor James Caan was a Bronx man and a movie star in every sense of the word.

GOP Strike Three

Images

The Republican Party has failed and is incapable of governing. They only deny, delay, and destroy this great nation our forefathers built.

US Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell’s response to the # MAGA-loving #HighlandPark murders was to say: "We have got to figure out some way to identify these troubled young men."

In June, all #GOP members blocked the following:

- Mandatory wait time for gun sales

- Permanently enhanced background checks

- Mandatory licenses for assault weapons

Another One Down

Another one goes down with a quite few more worthless ones that have yet to step down after causing extensive damage to their nations.

British Prime Ministers Boris Johnson's resignation brings the curtain down on years of a tempestuous time in office that was marred by a succession of scandals that culminated in the rebellion of his own cabinet. Does any of this sound similar?

Boris resisted the calls but it became clear that he had lost the confidence of his MPs and that the government could no longer function.

Leadership Teamwork and Success

Teamwork is partly about identifying the strengths and professional potential of others and working together to help them succeed.

Sylvia, one of my many fabulous hires over the years. She lives in California and called to share with me her big shot at something really exciting that put her on track for everything she's worked hard and dreamt of for a long time. She started as LA's first Spanish-language TV weather forecaster.

More Newsoms Needed

Gavin Newsom's media ad slamming Republicans is the best effort to fill a vacuum in the Democratic Party's response to the GOP.

While an increasing number of Democrats grow impatient with POTUS, alternative voices emerge. The lack of forceful leadership making a comprehensive case about right-wing radicalization degrading our national life on so many fronts is crucial.

it is about time for Democrats to start fighting back while still following the law of the land and normal rules of respect, consideration, and civility.

GOP Atrocity

Are MAGA Republicans being recruited by Putin through Trump to commit acts of horrific violence and sow chaos to destroy America?

Police have arrested a suspect after a mass shooting at a #USA #IndependenceDayParade in a Chicago suburb, which killed 6 people and left 31 others injured.
