The rise of Fascism in Spain followed a classic trajectory that can serve as a blueprint for how Democracy can be destroyed.  

My grandfather's family fled Fascism in Spain and my dad's family lost everything when we left Communism in Cuba. These facts underline how liars can dismantle our fragile Democracy.

My family emigrated to the USA when I was a little boy. The youngest son of professional parents who lost everything and fled for safety in America, the land of the free and the home of the brave. 

Deconstructing Semantics

Submitted by ub on Wed, 04/21/2021 - 08:10

Whenever semantics comes up, an initial response could be what do you mean by that, or are you trying to be mean? News or Views?

Ancient Greek: σημαντικός sēmantikós, significant is the study of meaning, reference, or truth. The term can be used to refer to philosophy, linguistics, and computer science.

Semantics can mean quite different things in different contexts; fields concerned with semantics are as diverse as psychology, law, lexicography, and logic. Pragmatics is an equally wide-ranging term, with applications in politics.

Finally, we have a social media platform for good deeds. The reputations of online communities will no longer linger in the dumpster.

ChekMarc seeks to change that by encouraging people to help each other regardless of who they are and wherever they live.

A social platform that connects people one on one in a positive and private way to help each other accomplish similar goals.

As I approach yet another birthday and prepare to sing a sad song of a year of unnecessary hardships and COVID fear, my conclusion is that not everyone admits being attracted to sugar, spice, and everything nice. Some folks prefer wine, and sarcasm, in order to survive so it is suffice.

Americans need to know the whole truth and nothing but, so help us, God. Why do we allow this to continue?

Why did Donald Trump move on from liers Roy Cohn to Michael Cohen as his attorney and fixers?

How did POTUS get here? It was Roy Marcus Cohn a gay-hating homosexual, and Jew-hater? Was he the presence of evil?

#RoyCohen James Woods' Citizen Cohn is also worth watching https://youtu.be/jtQNGUIw2Hg
