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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

MY DEMANDS

July 24th, 2017, No Comments

I’m holding the United States Constitution hostage inside American bookstores until you meet a few simple demands. When you look at the shelves where those are located, hear these words in your ears. Born in Washington Heights, N.Y., my grandparents and parents showed the youngest daughter of the house the great potential to be nurtured […]

Dear Politicians (and voters)

September 30th, 2015, No Comments

Dear Politicians, You have all been reading the ‘linked in’ website for too long and refuse to follow a single thread of policy, from start to finish, without a comparison being drawn. There are no discussions of protecting the vulnerable populations without pointing at a less vulnerable group to blame for …, invulnerability perhaps? We […]

Dear Bill Maher, Isn’t Humanism Also a Religion?

April 12th, 2015, No Comments

Dear Mr. Maher, Thank you, along with many other comedic pundits who have helped so many of us laugh in understanding over the years. Tonight, I’m writing to look into your opinions about humanism, as opposed to religion. I truly enjoy your pokes at ‘dogmatism’ but also believe that to be a characteristic of humanists […]

When It Isn’t All About You – The Indiana Law

April 7th, 2015, No Comments

(Links are not posting reliably so please excuse the URLs in the post used for proper attribution. I’ll be editing older posts for the same purpose.) Many states are seeking to reprise Federal restatements about religious freedoms. These state-by-state activities pose an urgent question. Why do legislators at local levels believe that kind of repetition […]

Right to Privacy or Right to ‘Come In’?

October 21st, 2014, No Comments

The American obsession with gender identity has again reared itself into the mainstream, this time in Texas.  The start of this remarkable storm began with a rather ‘old’ issue of where people identifying as a gender different than that expected by mere, anatomical study ought to go to the bathroom.  Public access to bathrooms is extremely important […]

GITMO Comes to North Carolina

June 9th, 2014, 1 Comment

Obama faces some heavy charges of violating congressional process by trading Gitmo prisoners for an American held in Afghanistan for five years. While I won’t comment upon the politics of prisoner exchanges, I will applaud this action if it is the only way to close down Guantanamo Bay Prison. It is proof that we no […]

An Oath Out-Standing

March 1st, 2014, No Comments

There are a variety of outstanding oaths taken by adults in the course of our lifetimes. Elected officials, from the President of the United States to the newest member of your local library board, asserts their intention of protecting and defending the Constitution. Witnesses before Congress or the judiciary pledge to stand before God or […]
