Citizen Action

I’m an independent recruited by and served under Republican President George HW Bush’s administration as GM/15-10 at USIA/VOA.

The Grand Old Party will never be the same after the Big Lie

Republicans said the stock market would fall under President Biden

They claimed Americans wouldn’t be able to find a turkey for Thanksgiving

They said kids wouldn’t be able to get any gifts for Christmas

They insisted that #Covid would disappear, the said it as just a huge hoax

They said the FBI, BLM, and Antifa organized the January 6 US Capitol Riot

Diversity Improves All

The case for diversity and multiculturalism comes from the American objectives implemented in the USA Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Humanity must understand the importance of diversity, multiculturalism, inclusion, and our values. The people of the world cannot be truly free and succeed if we cannot move along with this changing culture.

Millennials and Gen Z are leading a dramatic cultural shift that will drive many benefits, including ideas and methods for improvement and mindsets that are open to that change. But we all need to adapt.

It is Tuesday morning, do you know how to immediately reach your Representative in Congress and your two US Senators?

Senators meet every Tuesday for a weekly caucus luncheon, where they discuss and set their legislative priorities. It’s imperative that they hear from all Americans about the need for structural democracy reform legislation before they go into these important meetings.

Call your Senators on Tuesday before lunch and let them know you want them to fix the filibuster and fix democracy.

A hormone and a neurotransmitter that is scientifically associated with empathy, trust, kindness, love, and relationship-building.

We can reportedly all become human superspreaders by practicing simple acts of kindness.

Seven Hundred Thousand Crimes

Do you remember when COVID arrived in America in the Spring of 2020 and the former GOP guy and his VP lies it would disappear?

Many public safety first responders representing racial minorities began working on the front lines and advocated for more people who looked similar. It eventually became clear that the global pandemic and deadly virus was hurting certain communities of color much harder than some others.

GOP Stooges and Snitches?

A US House of Representatives committee investigating the 1/6/21 insurrection at the Capitol issued its first Congressional subpoenas, demanding records and testimony from the former guy's advisers and followers.

Will the @GOP stooges resist their legal subpoenas? Will every one of them secretly demand to testify behind closed doors?

How can the #Republicans continue to make spurious claims of executive privilege? Will each one of them delay, lie and deny but at the end of the day, all their defenses will die?

Thinking Out Loud

The impacts of 911 are still being felt, yet others today are doing far worse damage and causing more deaths in the name of political ideology than the carnage caused by the attacks on September 11, 2001.  

First, the insurrectionists on January 6, but instead of saying never forget this seditious act. Let us ask ourselves why we’re not the unified humanity we need to be in order to prevent another blight on history?

Essential Vax and Mask

It’s another dangerous lie that kids don’t catch #COVID. Our school teachers are so worried why have you told them to scrap bubbles, mask-wearing, and social distancing when cases of the delta variant are at their peak. Why can’t our kids get vaccinated?

Those who are unwilling to sacrifice a small part of their quality of life and daily comforts for the good of our country seem to be making the loudest noise right now. But the statistics show that they have never been in the majority.

Human Kindness

Every one of us holds the power to heal. To have a real impact on the health of the people around you. We all do it daily.

This is the real reason why modern medicine is ripe for a change in perspective. Because each of us is a human being in search of kindness and understanding. Our body, mind, and spirits are one and the same.

The world's oldest news organization offers these close-up photos of this pandemic-era Olympic Games, you can imagine the world's most competitive athletes saying to their rivals: “Are you OK?”
