US Border Documents in English

Why are US border documents in English, and only in English? Has no one in the refugee or immigration offices heard of Google Translate? Instead of having translators read forms to refugees and immigrants, why not have them in front of a computer screen where the US border documents in English can be translated into […]

Stop Spanking Children

Hopefully, the latest release about parenting from The American Academy of Pediatrics will finally convince people to stop spanking children. This is not meant as a chastisement to parents who spank, because in most cases, parents are simply disciplining their children in the same manner that their parents disciplined them. No one is saying that […]

Trump attacking Amazon

It’s been three weeks since I opined on Trump attacking Amazon. This morning, while reading the news, I stumbled onto an article written on Fortune.com, in October of 2017, which explains everything.
