Clearing Up the Middle East Situation- Mar 28, 2015
Recently my mom complained to me that she is confused by what is happening in the Middle East. I doubt she is alone in this, and for her benefit and those of you who share her confusion I have decided to clear things up. With that in mind, what follows is a brief summation of the situation in the Middle East—hopefully it will answer a number of questions you might have.

From the halls of Montezuma
Nearly a thousand years after Islamists attacked Rome and desecrated the Tomb of St. Peter (846 AD) America got its turn at bat against Muslims during the 1st Barbary War (1801-1805). Fighting Muslims overseas no doubt helped to build the very fabric of our nation—thanks for the leg up, Islam.

But remember that you must realize these things as being the expression of God in you, and not independent qualities of your own. You must also accept them as being true for every other human being.

Pity-pot Perception- Dec 9, 2014
Self-pity is easily the most destructive of the non-pharmaceutical narcotics; it is addictive, gives momentary pleasure and separates the victim from reality.—John W. Garner (1912-2002)
I choose to live in a present reality of constructive action, and envision a future of enlightened possibilities. So I have no time for race-baiters and grievance hustlers who obsess over a long gone past. Their efforts to stoke the fires of bitterness and hatred disgust me.
