2018 – A New Year? Or Just 2017 (continued)

COMMENT FROM KATHY: My favorite quote from the holiday season is this: “They thought they could bury us. They did not know we were seeds.” A lot of “they’s” there but helps my activism health. Happy New Year. A good friend, who always prefers anonymity, sent this message, received at 9:25 p.m. Dec. 31: “Hi […]

Three men in conversation as 2017 ends:

Dec. 22 I posted about Gratitude. In short order, long-time friend SAK, “across the pond” in Europe, responded in his usual eloquent way: “To be sure, Mr. Bernard, very discouraging indeed but thanks for “keeping on keeping on”! (his comment continues at end of this post)… * Later the same day, three of us, relatives, […]

Tax “Reform”; Robert Mueller

Today is one week to Christmas Day. Who wants (or has time) to be bothered with taxes and criminal investigations? Read “Gifting America” if you wish. I recommend your taking the time. Then decide what you are going to do…and when…or if…. It’s “Christmas future” we’ll all be facing, possibly about to be snuck in […]

Yesterday in Alabama

There have been several comments to yesterday’s post about the Dec. 12 U.S. Senate election in Alabama. That post, and the comments were all written and published hours before the polls closed in Alabama last night. If we choose, the Alabama election can be a learning opportunity for every one of us, about most everything […]

Thoughts on the Day of Alabama

PRE-NOTE: My comments on Alabama are “below the fold”, following the “headlines”, as well as several comments from others which were added before the polls closed Tuesday evening…. This post is about Politics. For those who do not like talk about politics, any time you see the Eagle, below, you’ll know what follows. Those who […]

“Evil Triumphs When Good People Do Nothing”

POSTNOTE, Dec. 8: A thought provoking commentary of the last days, here. * These thoughts seem random, even to myself. Hopefully, you’ll find some “hook” for thought and conversation. (click to enlarge, from June, 2000) Middle of the night I awoke with a few words in my head: “evil triumphs when good people do nothing.” […]

On Eagle’s Wing

Yesterday was the first day of Advent. It is variously observed in Christian churches; it seems especially emphasized in the Roman Catholic, my particular tradition. So, now we’re in Advent, Christmas is little more than four Sundays away. I planned a reminiscence about a simpler time for yesterday. It is premature. Too gentle. Perhaps next […]

A new 9-11: “Tax Reform” Under Cover of Night….

Last night the U.S. Senate facilitated, on a strict party-line vote, a forseeably disastrous end game: to steal from the poor and middle class as a giveaway to the already super-rich. The implications are, for ordinary Americans, worse by far than 9-11-01. The public has a very short time to weigh in on this initiative […]

Nuclear War

To be clear, this post is not about North Korea (though it well could be). One cannot imagine what “dotard” and “rocket man” (Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un) will do. This is a very dangerous time, led by very dangerous men. Rather, this post is, once again, about the weaponization of Sex in America. […]
