We as people
are constantly engaged in threat assessment. 
When we look around, we evaluate people and things around us.  We use information get got from our
development to classify something as threat or not a threat.

There was a
time when grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, and members of society told
their children to watch out for black people. 
The children who received these messages used them and passed them on to
their children.

Today, I was
reading an arti...

Most of us who do not abuse drugs pay the bills for those who do abuse drugs. Long term abuse of alcohol and drugs has serious health consequences. Whether an addict ends up in a private or public hospital, we have to pay for them. Therefore, I think we have more then the right to have an opinion.

I know the psychological parameters of addiction. People use drugs to cope with pain and suffering. People use drugs because of the pleasure they receive by being in a social drug using environment....

     Some days ago I was listening to conversation between Mr. Bill Bennet and an invited guest to his Morning in America radio talk show.  During this conversation, the guest mentioned that Article I, Section 8, clause 10 of the American Constitution had been used by George Washington and during WWII.  The guest believed that this provision in the Co...

The following are some facts I came across today along with my commentary.  I have tried to give appropriate credit by noting the article name, the author, and the news service. Since some quotes are many I have put these quotes between [] bars.

My observation after reading these news stories is that Obama says a lot but he signs very little presidential orders.  In almost all these articles it is ment...

I am plan to take on a more serene tone today. Since I woke up I have been preparing to give a serious and analytical review of Mr. Obama’s inauguration. The following are some of the conclusions I came to this day.

The reality is that some one had to win.  The vote was held and Mr. Obama won enough votes to be elected.  Granted I am not very happy with the results.  I am even more disappointed with all the fan...

Valentines gifts and more at Alegria Online Mall What is historic about a two-bit hustler getting elected?  Aren’t these type of people always elected in to office?  I remember that Mr. Obama’s standard answers when confronted with a discrepancy between his understanding of the facts and some else’s understanding were it was not me or I did not know that.Mr. Obama spent 20 years in church with a minister such as Jeremiah Wright and claims he was never aware o...

I have been up to some reorganization.  For some time I was convinced I was going to give up Blogging and all other efforts on the internet.  I was doing to much, incapable of keeping track of everything, and big errors were being made by me.

However, I have realized that I have a voice and a responsibility to speak my mind.  I and not being fictitious when I say mankind is under a serious lack of morality...

We built this society with our immaturity.  For several decades Americans have been on anti-establishment craze.  Everything government say has to be wrong and it is our job to ridicule them as much as we can.

Okay, thousand dollar hammers will make anyone gaffe.  However, is wasteful spending all they  do in DC.  Even more important is what is our contribution.  I do not ...

It is tragic what is happening to this country.  During the 1990’s there was a debate over having  the military draft in order that poor minorities  would not be the only ones loosing their lives in wars.  In fact, just as I am writing this article I am remembering that this issue was drop up in the Kerry/Bu...

You are a genuine person.  People like you because they know you are not pretentious and won’t do anything in the name of politics.  The liberal-agenda driven-news media only knows how to do things one way.  You will never win by getting in their face.

In addition, us-the members of the public who love you and respect you- are not their dummies.  Therefore, do not spend so much time worrying about them and be grateful for the support you have from so many of us. ...

     After a fair assessment, I have come to the conclusion that life for the most part is rather bleak.  People are losing their jobs, investments, homes, and other commodities.  Furthermore, modern man suffers from a sever angst due mostly from not being able to acquire a pleasant life.

     The inspiration for this article was the Dr. Phil show.  Yesterday, I was watching as he discussed the possible murder by a mother of a three year old girl.  My first though was why isn’t a mental health professional talking about the mental health issues related to such behaviors.  The answer is that the Dr. Phil show is a talk show hosted by a person who at one tim...

WalMart, Hotwire, Cheaptickets, Legos, Toys 'R Us, and more.         There has been a lot of talk about the “bail outs” for the American auto-makers.  Even today several weeks after their last symbolic car ride in to DC I read stories of the VOLT project being scaled back and auto makers restructuring their plans for plant closures.  In addition, there are stories about president Bush pondering over using part of the 700 billion economic bailout for...

     Today, I have the violence in man’s heart on the brain.  I have been reading a news story about drug gang violence in Mexico.  For some time now drug gang members have been killing each other and displaying the bodies in order to terrorize the citizenry so they will turn against the Mexican president, who has declared war on drug t...
