While I am not the least bit surprised that Trump dictated his medical report which his doctor then signed, I am now more convinced than ever that America has become morally bankrupt.

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.

Taking a lesson from nature as food for thought this Sunday. I love this lesson from Ram Dass… When you go out into the woods and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and […]

If you’re a Democrat living in the south, your are most likely living Blue in a Red state. If you speak out about issues, values, and equality, you are quite often met with scowls, slurs, and vile insults – even from your family and friends. I salute all of you who join me in this […]
