Note: I place footnotes immediately after the paragraph which necessitates the footnote. One may view an article @ regarding Tim Kaine - Democratic Vice -Presidential nominee, and ostensible Roman Catholic (he is a "brown-paper bag" see my blog post: " Why do brown paper-bags continue to call...  Read More

If Putin Were to Favor Trump, Why? If Vladimir Putin were to prefer Donald Trump - rather than Hillary Clinton - to become the next President of the United States, why? My guess - and of course this is a guess - is that Vladimir Putin actually cares about the future of Russia, and although Putin may be a monster, even a monster prefers a relatively stable society trending towards greater...  Read More

Leon Panetta said: "Today, Donald Trump once again took Russia's side. He asked the Russians to engage in American politics." "Think about that for a moment. Donald Trump is asking one of our adversaries to engage in hacking or intelligence efforts against the United States to affect our election." Question: "Why is Panetta angry about the individual (Trump) asking Russia to expose what Clinton...  Read More

The Clinton campaign and the corrupt President of the United States – President Obama – took umbrage with Donald Trump for asking Russia to find/produce Hillary’s deleted 30,000 e-mail’s. Rick Grenell (Trump delegate) was on Fox Special Report with Debbie Dingle (Democratic Congresswoman and Clinton super-delegate), where they discussed Trump’s call for Russia to recover and expose Hillary...  Read More

In discussions with others regarding the direction of the Church, the culture and our relation to God and to others, I am continually struck by how most people of whom I dialogue reduce teaching and discussions to themselves; now one may suggest that that is what is appropriate, to the individual, but does it allow each of us to neglect our responsibility to others? If the hierarchical Church...  Read More

As the Democratic Party - with Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine as their standard bearers - begins their bid for the oval office, one wonders what part of the DNC Platform hasn't been realized, and what appeal their "small-ball" agenda will drive voters to the polls to vote for them? Under Obama, most of the major DNC issues have been achieved, viz: Government mandated insurance; the corruption of...  Read More

R Allen Shoaf write on his blog a blog-post which he titled: "… where hatred alone is sacred …" Allen has his "comments disabled" so if one would like to ask a few clarifying questions, of professor Shoaf one may not. Given that, one must make do with what Allen has provided, which intimates American's are greedy, selfish, dull and motivated by hatred; moreover such moral dispositions are...  Read More

Having little interest in the either the RNC or the DNC conventions, or in their respective Party's (the RNC is DNC light), one still cannot avoid seeing or hearing a bit of this or that - saw a bit of Laura Ingraham (a sweetheart conservative), and a bit of Cruz; saw Laura tell Press: "Do your Job!" and Cruz not endorse Trump... In this writers opinion, Cruz's non-endorsement of Trump helps...  Read More

Although the topics of lying and dishonesty are of particular relevancy in the current election cycle - because Hillary (and her husband Bill) Clinton seem to be inveterate liars - uttering, or reporting, falsehoods as truth, or as factual, may result from faith in another, or because of a misunderstanding facts/terms, or because one is possessed of a particular psychology i.e., disposition of...  Read More

Addendum to: Some Detrimental Aspects of Group/Organizational Interaction Clearly what was written regarding group/organizational interactions particularly their downside did not exhaust the topic, and of course the topic may not be exhaustible since groups and organizations are proliferated with sapient creatures, and therefore since its members are not completely fathomable, it is likely a...  Read More

It should not surprise any that Hillary Clinton should escape prosecution for any wrong doing - intentional or inadvertent - when the social-political Left reigns in Government and in the University and - since the culture is framed in the University - in the hearts and minds of all of us to varying degrees. In part - given the University dominant weltanschauung - many concepts, which pre-date...  Read More

One attends both voluntary, and mandatory meetings, of organizations and groups, and one may occasionally, or often, leave the meeting/s, feeling mentally as if one had been wresting (those which have never wrested for any length of time would likely be surprise how physically exhausting wresting can be particularly is one is evenly matched...) with an individual possessed of skills, and fitness,...  Read More

American Exceptionalism At mass this morning, Father Almade addressed "American Exceptionalism" in his homily; father Frank (Frank D. Almade) took exception to the notion of American Exceptionalism explaining to the congregants that the exceptionalism is an assertion that we are a better country, with better people, and if he were a from Brazil, Chile, Mexico, China, Russia he would be...  Read More

Pope Francis last Sunday asserted that Christians and the Romans Catholic Church should ask for forgiveness from homosexuals for the way they have treated them… To what mistreatment the Pope is referring? Perhaps, the Pope should have given some concrete instances of maltreatment... One would think - in an age where homosexuality is ubiquitously promoted as a "good" (of course the Catholic...  Read More

I don't know if Donald Trump would lie in the face of the surviving loved ones of those killed in Benghazi, but I know Hillary did. I don't know if Donald Trump would take millions of dollars from Muslim countries that deny legal protection - from murder and abuse - to women, homosexuals and all non-Muslims, but I know Hillary has, and does... I don't know if Donald Trump can on, the one hand...  Read More
Return to Main Blog Page to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
