Back Biden Better

Everybody who wants to save this country, anyone who is interested in living in a democracy, anyone who cares about America and how it is viewed by the world, has to support Biden at this time.

It doesn’t really matter that Biden is not a good speaker, which he has never been. He is not a circus barker like Trump. But look at his record, he has reduced inflation, the cost of medication, he has built back bridges and infrastructure, saved families from starvation, he raised the wage level in the country, reduced unemployment to the lowest its ever been, and he came up with a plan that both Democrats and Republicans agreed on for Boarder Control. First Trump and his republican cohorts agreed on it then they destroyed it .

Just realize that Roosevelt was a pretty great president, but he couldn’t walk an inch without being carried. Of course being 81 is not that same as being 50 or 60, but we don’t have a 50 or 60 year old at the moment who could beat Trump.

If Trump is elected it will be the same as living in Nazi Germany under Hitler. Hitler was also elected by the people. America went to war for World War 2 to prevent Hitlers destruction of Europe and America. Now we have a Hitler within, ready to take over the nation, with a huge following of people who do not understand that they would be giving up their democracy if Trump became President.

Once, Biden is President, at least it will be possible to disagree with his policies or whatever he wants to do. If Trump becomes President there will be no room for disagreement.

Don’t forget that Trump himself has told us how great he thinks Putin is. Also, he thinks the Mein Kampf is one of the greatest books ever written. He would destroy NATO, isolate the United States, destroy the bonds and contracts that have kept the country safe for 52 years without a war.

Aside from all of that, don’t forget he is a man who has been convicted of 34 felonies, has committed treason against the United States. Sure it would be better if we had a young vital candidate for the Democratic party, but we don’t. We have a man who has been successful in government for 45 years or more. He may stutter, and may not have the stamina of a 45 year old, but that doesn’t mean he can’t successfully run the country.

This seems an in opportune moment to switch horses. Roll up your sleeves, get on your telephone, and get out to vote in favor of Biden.

The Powers that be, are the Powers that are

The day that Trump became President of the United States of America was day that he destroyed the Supreme Court as we have known it. He had the benefit of already having Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, two totally unqualified people to inhabit the Supreme Court, let alone to have lifetime job security. He was able to cynically appoint, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett three more equally unqualified justices to sit on the Supreme Court knowing that one day he would probably be a defendant before them.

This group of “would be wisemen” chose to destroy Roe v. Wade depriving women of their rights, but they were able to go on by totally degrading our democracy by exonerating Trump and all future Presidents of crimes while committed in office. Thus, paving the way for the total destruction of democracy

If this country is to be saved at all , if it is not to fall into the hands of Trump and his sycophants, Biden must take hold of the power that was afforded to him yesterday by the Supreme Court and run with it to victory. Biden has to find the voice to attack Trump loud and clear as a liar, a man who has committed treason against the United States, a man who has stolen from the government both in and out of office, a man so despicable in character that he will destroy not only the United States but NATO and all the treaties that have kept this country free of war since World War 2.

We went to war in World War 2, to fight Hitler. Hitler promised to make Germany “great again.” He did. He made it the pariah of the world. He made it the enemy of the world, and we the United States of America went to war to keep him from destroying England and the United States.

Those people who are supporting Trump today simply cannot understand that they, like the German nation before them, are voting for an autocrat, and a dictator. This is not a question of Republican or Democrat. People across the aisle can discuss, argue, and fight and have a difference in opinion. If Trump is elected there will be no room for discussion. Trump and Putin will rule the world, and America as we have know it will be a dream of the past.

The world gone dead.

A Perfect Democracy

In 1920, H.L. Mencken wrote “As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and a complete narcissistic moron.”

What more could be said. Last night’s debate was a heartbreaking disaster for the Democratic Party.

Are Women Not Human?

In 1973, Sarah Weddington, a 26 year old lawyer, pled and won the case of Roe V. Wade. Two years ago today, Roe V. Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court and has since deprived women of their fundamental rights. 

It should be her right to decide whether she is healthy enough to carry. Her right to decide whether her life is at stake. Her right to decide whether she can afford to have a child. Her right to decide whether she desires to bear the child of a rapist. Her right to get medical attention. Her right to be a human being.

Contrary to the loss of women’s rights, men have all the rights and absolutely no responsibility. It is as though women could self inseminate, become pregnant on their own without a male partner. Many ordinary men, and even worse largely powerful republican men, seem to have the attitude that they have no responsibility whatsoever. They can impregnate women, walk away, and take no responsibility for the child. After all, men are the most responsible and irresponsible partner in a women’s pregnancy.

What arrogance to think that men have the right to rape, even impregnate underage girls, and to do whatever they please with women’s bodies, but women should have no right to determine their own fate. 

There are no existing laws regarding mens bodies or responsibilities. The laws only apply to women. This society has been totally male dominated for 247 years.The male need to control women goes to such an extent that they even control the need for women to get birth control pills.

There is only one simple answer to this. Every single male member of the world, and certainly of the United States of America, must under go a vasectomy at the age of 12 mandated by the state which would only be reversible when he can prove to the state that he is ready to take responsibility as a parent. This at least would reduce the number of pregnancies resulted in rape, unexpected pregnancies amongst underage girls, and at least would force men to take some responsibility. 

The overthrow of Roe v. Wade is clearly an attack on Women’s Rights in the United States of America by a group of right wing extremists who should have absolutely no right to serve as Justices of the Supreme Court, the Congress, or the Senate in the United States of America. The Supreme Court was once the most respected court in the land, and perhaps in the world. Today, it has lost all credibility proving the no one should have the right to a lifetime term in any office.

Clamshell Generation

The computer and the telephone have alienated an entire generation. It is impossible to look at America today without wondering what has caused this tremendous division in the country. And what is the division? 

It seems as though a generation of people have grown up without having any real connection to the society in which they live. Their attachment is to their computers, their telephones, and to an ever-narrowing landscape world. They observe but they don’t participate. That seems to be a large part of the younger generation. 

Another part of the population are the people who are hostile, angry, and don’t seem to really understand what is happening in the world. They are willing to attack the Capital of The United States and sacrifice the lives of the people who guard the gates. They don’t seem to understand the relationship between aiding the Ukraine in it’s war against Putin is keeping people occupied in a war over there, and not here. One always has to remember that Putin’s aim is the destruction of the United States.

Ever since the end of the Vietnam War, Americans have not been involved in any public service. There has been no draft. It may be that the only thing that can save this country is to reinstate the draft. 

People can choose to serve in the military – the Army, Navy, or Air Force – or they can choose to serve in some form of Peace Corps either home or abroad. 

Years ago, Helen Parkhurst, who is the founder of the Dalton School, one of the most advanced, progressive schools in the Nation, was totally committed to the idea that everyone as they graduate high school should serve for 2 years in some form of public service before going to college. Today, this idea seems more necessary than ever. 

Public service gives people a sense of commitment and exposure to the needs of other people and other societies. When people all work for a common cause, they recognize the commonality of their interests and their humanity, and they recognize the common needs. It also helps them to find a way to do something constructive towards solving social problems. 

About a third of the countries in the developed world have mandatory military service while America does not have a commitment to public service. Perhaps this may be a partial cause of some of the divisions in the country.

A draft gives a person many different possibilities to serve in whatever way they choose. The important thing is to be involved, and to be part of the social action that shapes and defines the direction of a country. It makes you a participant. The point is that this is a generation that sits by and watches the world go by.

Perhaps the social problem today and the division in this society is related to the lack of connection that public service provides. 

The world is dangerously spinning towards some kind of conflagration while everyone is living in his/her own little shell.

Your Vote Matters More Than Ever Before

The following was posted back in 2022. Nothing has changed, except that there are probably even more reasons not to vote for Trump today. Please send this list out to all of your friends and family and distant relatives and acquaintances and whoever you can get it to. Since then, he’s been indicted 34 times and found guilty on innumerable charges. The man is a dictator, a danger to democracy, and the biggest danger is the number of people who believe him. They do not understand that Hitler was elected by the people of Germany, and ultimately, WWII was fought to destroy Hitler and to keep him from destroying all of Europe and America. Today, we have the same enemy within our country. Every vote matters. Please make sure that you and everyone you know votes against Trump.

Can you help get this information out to the 85 million people who are still supporting Trump?


It is beyond understanding that Americans who claim to believe in America Democracy could ever have supported Trump as president of the USA.

Biden Better Than Perceived

Biden has been going through some horrible personal tragedies with his son, Hunter. Hopefully the courts will cut Hunter some slack in support of his effort to successfully give up drugs. He is an unfortunate drag for Biden. It’s not just that Biden is 81 years old, it’s that he has these personal family tragedies to deal with, which would weigh heavily on anyone.

It is always important to remember that despite the criticism from the know-nothing, Trump-following right, he has still done more for this country during his Presidency than he is given credit for. After all, he did not just become President to take over the reigns of government, he had the great burden of trying to bring this country back from the disastrous path upon which Mr. Trump’s Presidency had taken it.

Below are some of the highlights from Biden’s Presidency, written by my colleague, David Caleb:

  • Best economic recovery from COVID in the G7, WSJ calls the US economy right now “the envy of the world.” 
  • GDP growth has averaged over 3% in Biden’s Presidency, 3 times higher than Trump averaged per year
  • Lowest unemployment rate in a peacetime economy since WWII, jobs more plentiful today than at any time since the 1960s. 8 times as many Biden jobs in 40 months as last 3 GOP Presidents combined over 16 years. Overwhelming majority of Americans have never experienced a job market this robust and strong
  • Inflation has fallen, dramatically, and prices of many goods, including many food items, continue to fall
  • Very elevated wage gainsnew business starts and prime-age worker participation rates
  • Lowest uninsured rate in history, ACA signups this past year highest ever
  • The annual deficit is trillions of dollars lower today than it was when Trump was in the White House
  • Median wealth up 37% from 2020-2022; median wealth for 18-34 year olds in this period more than doubled
  • The Biden Administration has erased more than $130b in student debt
  • Homeownership rates for Gen Z were above both Millennials and Gen X at this point in their lives 
  • Many cities and states have raised the minimum wage in recent years, creating a much higher income floor for young and low-wage workers
  • Domestic oil production set records in 2023, and we are setting records with renewable energy production too. America is more energy-independent than it has been in decades
  • Biden’s ambitious investment agenda will create growth, innovation, and opportunities for American workers for decades to come, and is already dramatically accelerating our energy transition from carbon-based fuels

There are many things affecting the quality of life in Manhattan. Aside from the lack of affordable housing, aside from the fact that the cost of living is so high that almost no one who works in the city can afford to live here, aside from the fact that there is still unnecessary piles of garbage on the streets, and on top of all of this, it is absolutely deafening to walk on the uneven pavements of the streets of Manhattan.

The constant tooting of horns, which once was illegal in the city of New York, the noises made by unnecessary racing of motors, and over acceleration by cars and trucks, the ridiculous sirens made by fire trucks, police cars, and ambulances, all contribute to the noise pollution that is deafening the city.

Any small distinctive tinkling sound made by a fire engine or ambulance should force traffic to pull aside and make space for these special vehicles. This is just common decency and is observed by every other city in the world.

Why do New Yorkers have to be hit with a sledge hammer in order to make way for an ambulance or fire engine? Cars revving their motors and drivers with their hands on the horns of their vehicles, trucks screeching along down the streets taking up half the space, all contributing to the noise pollution of the city.

In every other city of the world, trucks makes their deliveries in the off hours. In France and Paris it is illegal to toot your horn on any constant basis. People are respectful to the sound of an ambulance or fire engine and immediately move to the side to enable these vehicles to pass. 

There is something about the constant construction in Manhattan that makes no sense. Beautiful old buildings are constantly being torn down to be replaced by ugly modern glass construction or left like garbage dumps for years on end. Meanwhile, the city has not concentrated on solving the affordable housing problem, so this endless construction is creating a double problem. Constantly obliterating light, intensifying traffic, and not doing anything to make it possible for people to be able to afford to live in Manhattan.

Manhattan is becoming an island of very wealthy people with no services as it becomes increasingly expensive for people to commute into New york for work.

Some consideration needs to be given to preserve life in the city, and once again to make it possible for young people, artists, and workers to live in the city. Otherwise, we will increasingly see an unlivable noisy city with fewer amenities, fewer workers, and many empty buildings only benefiting the contractors who build them.  

America Beware

While on the subject of Trump, let it be known, that no bank in the world would lend him money expect the Deutche Bank. This bank, was completely funded by Putin.

So here you have Donald Trump totally beholden to Putin for the rest of his life. Putin’s one and single aim in life ultimately is the destruction of the American Democracy, and of America.

Putin has done everything he can to control our cyber space, to disseminate misinformation, and in many ways he has been successful. Americans who get their misinformation from certain channels and media influencers on TikTok are being manipulated to undermine our Democracy by Putin, and Donald Trump, the would be President of The United States.

The importance of this is to get the word out to his supporters, who probably do not have the information about Trump’s relationship to Putin.

Everyone in America needs to be aware that our democracy is in danger of being destroyed. If you have lived through World War 2, you would know and remember that Hitler was elected by the people and his aim was not only to annihilate the Jews, of whom he killed 6 million, but also to conquer all of Europe and ultimately America as well.

Although Trump does not pretend to be conquerer, he would on the other hand destroy NATO, turn America over to Putin, and totally destroy the country as we have known it.

There is nothing more to say about Trump. He is a destroyer.

Cry the beloved country

How is it possible to even think of this man, Donald Trump, to represent the United States of America to the world.

A man who’s been indicted 3 times amounting to 88 felony charges, a man who is responsible for an attempted coup against the U.S. Government, a man who has told everyone in the world that if he were president of the United States, he would remove every benefit that’s been painfully won over the years to help every American rise on the socioeconomic latter.

He will destroy the base of our democracy.

It is very simple to be a dictator, which is exactly what Trump wants to be. It is very easy to tell people what to do and to force them to do it.

It is not simple and easy to govern a democracy. A democracy allows everyone the right to speak out and make demands of their government.

This is not a question of right or left or of the democratic party or republican party. This is purely a question of decency in government.

Trump who can barely read and write can be a dictator. He does not have either the knowledge or the ability to be a President. Even beyond his illiteracy, he is a known crook and a criminal.

Is this how America wants to be seen by the world? It should be totally inconceivable that this man could ever be considered for the Presidency of the United States of America.

Every American of voting age stand up, vote, and fight to preserve our democracy.
