Are Corporations Persons?

This is not about the politics of corporate personhood, but about corporate greed, compassion and social good.

Freedom of Speech…or…Are We Just A Bunch Of Brats!?!

So here we are getting ready to celebrate the 4th of July, Independence Day, when the first 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence in 1776, declaring our independence from Great Britain, in which is was proclaimed that we have the right to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” It would be another 11…

Recession, Recovery & Tax Credits

What Have We Become? – Death Squads!?!

He is just a political animal looking for his next appointment. He can’t even get through one term in office and he’s already been vying for one…

An Open Letter to My Readers!

It’s not for a lack of something for me to write about, that’s for sure. Part of my reason is because so much has been said about all these issues throughout the media and blogosphere.
