The Anglo-Saxon Superiority (ASS) movement has a long sordid history in the United States, and it is high time we rid ourselves of its foul stench.

If advocates of ASS want to force us to recognize their unique contributions to American culture, then it stands to reason that we eliminate…

As I watched various news outlets cover the ousting of Liz Cheney from her leadership role in the Republican Party, there appeared a reluctance to call it what it was. Many Democrats believe the Republican Party is engaged in “infighting” that will work to the Democrat’s advantage in the future…

On April 28th, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott had the unenviable task of giving the Republican Party’s response to President Biden’s first public address before a joint session of Congress. …

For shame, Noel, as now you are out and out lying, which is unbecoming a religious calling toward truth and revelation.

Jesus debated with the Jewish leaders of his day over what he believed were hypocrisies, and here I…

Warning: The reader may be deeply saddened by the following, as the genuine regret that the Trump supporter shares in this article, stemming as it does from heartfelt grieving and soul searching over the harms of the past four years, is therefore fictional. …

Bob Woodward’s new tell-all book, Rage, revealed specific evidence that Trump knew about the severity of Covid-19 (C-19) before it ravaged our nation, so far killing over 250,000 and sinking our economy. Not only did Trump willfully withhold information that he knew would save lives, but he also actively lied…

The leaders of Right Wing Militia groups pretend to be defending our Constitution against tyranny. Some even carry copies to their gun toting protests. It would serve them and the rest of us well if they would take the time to read the first paragraph of the document.
