Big Questions

What does FREEDOM mean? What does FREEDOM not mean?

Freedom means freedom from oppression, not freedom from one’s obligation to the COMMON GOOD.

Did Trump create the mob, or did the mob create Trump? > I know you know he is a cheater…

Are the Proud Boys Trump’s Brownshirts?

Is Trump the “Chosen One,” doing god’s work for the country? Or is he simply a mashup of [ Eddie Haskell + Elmer Gantry + Vince McMahon ], barnstorming across the fruited plain (airport hangars) bullshitting good American people?

Trump can’t get away with insulting, demonizing, mocking, ridiculing, lying to and cheating good people his entire life without it ultimately coming back to haunt him.

His comeuppance is upon him!

When you meet a human being of any race or nationality or color or sexual identity or national identity, you have a choice how you greet them with a look and words and body language communicating

  • suspicion, prejudice, fear, and hate, or
