‘Never’, Still Happens

February 7th, 2019, No Comments

‘Never again’. That was the cry of nations in the wake of the discovery of the concentration camps. From Dachau (1933) to Majdanek/Lublin, (fully operational by 1943), these novel compounds were the newest development in prison efficiency, as long as your industry was named, ‘Death’. The courts at Nuremberg and the Hague; the United Nations […]

Conflicts Within

January 24th, 2019, No Comments

United States Law is being challenged by the very persons paid Federal wages. We first saw criminal law enforcement at a State level, (Maryland), flouted in the Kavenaugh ‘job interview’, before the Senate judiciary committee. The lessons of the approval process for our newest Supreme Court justice will last for many years. Criminal charges are […]

Dear Senate Judiciary Committee,

October 1st, 2018, No Comments

Dear Judiciary Committee, The first Monday of October seems an appropriate day to pose these questions. While admittedly naive in the ways of senate deliberations, my belief in the activities of the Judiciary Committee was that you ensure the means by which our constitutional republic is maintained. I must request you review your own activities […]

A Plea Regarding Plea Bargains

September 14th, 2018, No Comments

Under fascist regimes, arrest rarely meant a trial was forthcoming. In Stalin’s ‘conveyor belt’ of judicial process, the arrestee was told the charge and asked whether he wanted to plead guilty before or after weeks of torture. Then the death sentence was carried out once the signature was applied to the confession. Our system of […]

Aren’t There Female Engineers in the House?

September 5th, 2018, No Comments

I head for the best climates of each season and spent this summer visiting several cities in the U.S.A. , not previously on my travel agenda. The males may not want to read further but should be informed that their input how women’s rest rooms are built is inadequate. Alright, it’s an abject failure! A […]

Advance the Constitution – Our Civil Courts

August 9th, 2018, No Comments

I live part of each year in the Middle East where the justice system of the nation of Israel has been in development for over 3000 years. Firmly established by the time democracy ultimately combined with a justice system in the Western world, there should be no surprises in the realisation that the United States […]

Dear Senator Rand Paul, regarding the CIA nominee,

March 20th, 2018, No Comments

I wanted to contact you about your position on the replacement for head of the CIA. A dual national of the USA, along with Israel, the latter (‘start-up nation’) has a position against the use of torture that is generations long. I would hope that the USA, or ‘up-start nation’, would tell Congress that no […]

The Education Burden

February 17th, 2018, No Comments

Education is a bright spot along a frequently dark spectrum of governmental expenditures. Numerous methods have been utilized to make compulsory schooling – the great equalizer – a viable and vibrant advantage of life in the United States. An education is an advantage not to be lost when circumstances change for an individual. However, the […]

Palestinian Syndrome – Do You Suffer From It?

November 11th, 2017, No Comments

Newspapers devote a great deal of column space to the Middle East for good reason. Political and judicial freedoms began there when the nation of Israel stood at the foot of Mt. Sinai – prior to gaining land borders – and created a revolutionary set of new laws. Those laws went far beyond the seven […]

Touristas and Baristas

August 29th, 2017, No Comments

There is a helpful website for tourists about the nature of crimes perpetrated against travellers, sponsored by the University of Albany. The conclusions were drawn by a 2017 conference obviously thrown together in an effort to keep the job-rich tourist industry thriving, rather than merely surviving. Global unrest has many persons taking ‘stay-cations’ where the […]
