Politically Miserable?


Folks around the world are getting frustrated and finally waking up to realize their government leaders are not only failing but also ripping them off.

According to credible data, in addition to politics, the status of the economy is strongly related to people’s trust in their government.

The wealthiest 1 percent minority individuals are increasingly taking over the levers of power and shaping the political debate, despite opposing views held by the majority 99 percent. http://faculty.wcas.northwestern.edu/~jnd260/cab/CAB2012%20-%20Page1.pdf

PR Catastrophe Continues


It has been almost one month since Maria slammed into the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico on September 20, and the US island is still reeling from the devastation the hurricane caused. As Hispanic Heritage month ends, this is what the US government finds on its plate. There are over 3 million Puerto Ricans, who are American citizens living in this US territory, which is larger than 21 states.

Where's Our Curiosity?


The act of being curious is a quality related to inquisitive thinking, exploration, investigation, and learning, evident by observation in humans and other animals, but perhaps not so much with many members of our so-called leaders.

What does everyone want most in life? For the vast majority of us, the answer is to be happy and healthy. More than 10,000 people from 48 countries on earth were surveyed and said happiness was more important than IQ, success, intelligence, knowledge, maturity, wisdom, relationships, wealth and meaning in life. It's not mansions, furniture, jewelry, fine art, designer clothes, expensive cars, boats, helicopters, or airplanes.

Happiness is a good thing. Yet, my professional and my personal experience have shown me that when we place too much focus on what we think will make all of us happy, we can lose track of what actually does.

Has the desire to build, learn or know more about many things, also called inquisitiveness lost and forgotten?

Under any other name... concern, star, interest, eagerness, inquisitiveness, investigation, inquiring, knowledge... When will people sincerely say what they are thinking and what they really want?



Thankfully, these last couple of days were an opportunity for Yirong and me to get away and enjoy the benefits of another family vacation.

We had an opportunity to once again be with my late father’s sole survivor sibling and his wife. It was also a romantic tropical getaway, and another cost-effective journey to introduce my wife to members of my extended family and good old friends.


Oh No... Friday 13th


Normally, Friday the 13th is a frightening whammy of a day, but under the current political climate it can be a downright disaster.

If you look back at past Fridays since January, you will notice that is when danger starts to rock and heads begin to roll.

Creepy and Crawly #DONews



Today is Thursday, Oct. 12, the 285th day of 2017. There are 80 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History: Besides being my birthday...

On Oct. 12, 1492 (according to the Old Style calendar), Christopher Columbus' expedition arrived in the present-day Bahamas.

On this date:

In 1792, the first recorded U.S. celebration of Columbus Day was held to mark the tricentennial of Christopher Columbus' landing.

In 1810, the German festival Oktoberfest was first held in Munich to celebrate the wedding of Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen.

Speak Up Now


Do you remember when folks would stand on a wooden crate to voice their opinions on what bothered them?

Contact your representatives and let them know what you want and need from them.


Reach out with your ideas, suggestions, and demands.


This is a digital wooden crate that allows anyone to speak up.

Next of Kindness


The cliché that you can chose your friends but not your family members becomes apparent when one meets with the latter and finds out that some drank that potion when we were’nt watching.

There are usually two groups of folks, the ones deeply rooted in truth, and justice or the others who believe whatever they are told but don’t participate in ways which require analysis or closer inspections to issues in order to seek enlightenment.

Columbus Day


Was he a global hero or a vilan? It depends on your point of view.

I was born on Columbus Day, so it is difficult for me to say.
What’s is your personal opinion? Was he a good guy or is there some other word that you would characterize him as?



As we approach the 50th anniversary of the death of a 20th-century revolutionary madman Ernesto "Che" Guevara who was killed on October 9, 1967, in Bolivia we ask was Che a monster or a guerilla legend?

Ernesto Guevara was born on June 14, 1928 to a well to do family. He went on become an Argentine Marxist r, a physician, an author, and most of all a guerrilla leader.
