Why should anyone sympathize with anti-vaxxing radio host Phil Valentine, who died from COVID19?

2021-08-24T19:19:32+00:00

In this age of hate and derision, we are often told that no matter the case, no matter the circumstance, and no matter the damage done by words and actions, we must strive to forgive, understand, and sympathize with the individual who espouses dangerous ideas. Easy to say, but in practice, when it comes [...]

Afghanistan, political hate, & the continuing effluent of social media.

2021-08-17T19:30:00+00:00

Where once it was for fun, entertainment, and can still be used for positive personal and professional discussion, (more rare now than ever before), social media, and especially Facebook, is more at the core of our national discourse and the running rivers of hate that fuel the daily diatribes than ever before.  On a [...]

OANN continues pushing propaganda and reveling in their “Fake News” reputation

2021-08-16T15:42:26+00:00

One America News Network is neither news nor a network. This is the most tragically laughable instance I have witnessed in a very long time, and will stand on my push to call them out in seeking to minimize their damage.

Ensuring our Founding Fathers ideals fit 21st Century America

2021-05-02T15:29:40+00:00

I don't believe all politicians to be evil, nor do I believe all of them to be saints. Finding fault with them all is easy. Finding hope has become the true mission, one that becomes harder every day with the spewing of rhetoric, propaganda, misinformation, lies and desires of the power mad amongst us. Hope can be found. All one has to do is read, or listen, to those words written so long ago. Then realize they have a power that is being suppressed and ignored by those who harbor no good will for all the people.

American Inspiration: Quietly shattering Muslim hate

2021-03-13T16:22:08+00:00

They are what America is supposed to be all about. They are the rich backbone of a country where very, very few are actually "from here". They are the soil from which a better country will grow and prosper long after we are gone. A mother, a father, and their two children. Trying to make their way in the world, provide a better life for themselves and their family in America. What could be more American, and more inspirational, than that?

Kevin Mather: The latest poster boy for smart people saying dumb things. Oh, and you’re fired.

2021-02-23T22:12:25+00:00

Kevin Mather, you're fired. Another supposedly intelligent individual with a high ranking position in a major corporation, this time a major league baseball team, makes us shake our heads yet again and wonder how someone of such reported intellect and savvy could be so stunningly foolish.

How the “Great Oakley School Board Zoom Fiasco” could have been avoided

2021-02-22T15:18:53+00:00

ZOOM has become all the rage for virtual meetings, due in large part to COVID-19 and how business was forced to make social distancing changes. Certainly, ZOOM and the other meeting platforms serve a purpose, but as we learned from the recent gaffe pulled by members of the Oakley (CA) School Board, use of these services and software can be disastrous.

Could Rush Limbaugh help America more in death than in life?

2021-03-13T16:33:55+00:00

We must be honest with ourselves, and in our acceptance of fact. Legacies must be accepted in their totality, without fear or favor. In the instance of those who have cut a wide swath across society such as Rush Limbaugh, what they did and how they did it must make us think, consider, reconsider, be honest with ourselves, and then seek out our better natures.

Always Be Closing: How to win a conversational fight without raising a figurative fist

2021-02-16T17:25:55+00:00

From the playgrounds I grew up on, to the location productions I've been part of, to the networks I've both created and worked at and the corporate meetings I've been privy to, far too often everything can be boiled down to those two words. Wanna fight?
