The U.S. Supreme Court had rejected an 11th hour challenge to Joe Biden's election as president. #SCOTUS ruling came in a one-page order, which said the complaint was denied "for lack of standing."

Political corruption is believed to be the most prominent in positions of power. However, over the centuries, corruption has changed so much so as to not match a particular definition, perpetually growing and more difficult to specifically define.

With Over 15,000,000 cases, more than 3,000 deaths in a day, and increasing economic devastation, how many Americans died today? What was done today to make that number less tomorrow?

Letter To and From Santa

To the little ones in my life. I love you, so I will not be able to visit or to hug and kiss you during the Christmas holidays this year. To their parents, this is a template for you to go through as you formulate that special letter to Santa.

I know that my loved ones have been good, so I wrote a sample letter for their parents to use because I know this year they most likely have their hands extremely full.


Dear Olivia, and Parker-

They say the good die young and talented younger. I began my career as a student intern or The Washington Post. But my first really great paying job was at NBC, NY, where I worked for nearly a decade. I was there the night he died.

Years later I took one of my journalism college classes to Strawberry Fields on the 30 anniversary of his death.

When I first moved to City Island, A Slice of NYC Paradise I found a small and quiet seaside village but I had no idea there would be so many knuckleheads living here who would eventually refuse to protect others and themselves by wearing masks. An old-timer who was born and died on the same street warned me that many of them had moved into our island. Captain Ed explained that according to local tradition, anyone actually born on the island is known as a "clamdigger". A City Island resident not born on the island is known as a "mussel-sucker."

We're Just Not Into You

#WeThePeople Are Just Not Into You... Really never were. What’s his name never won the popular vote. He actually lost it both times. He is a pothole on the bumpy road to American Democracy.

After perpetrating the greatest public health disaster of our lifetime, he has been focused on bitching about the election, Christmas decorations, playing golf, and building a tennis pavilion. Really, honestly, what is the GOP totally full of?

China has adopted a target to cut PRC's net carbon emissions to zero by 2060. Under Joe Biden, America will rejoin the Paris agreement, which it adopted five years ago.

Could Would Should

Could, would, and should are all used to talk about possible events or situations, but each one tells us something different. Could is used to say that an action or event is possible. Would is used to talk about a possible or imagined situation and is often used when that possible situation is not going to happen.

Communism vs Fascism

Please, allow me to tell you a real story I personally lived through. Once upon a time, there were two republics. Both had constitutions, laws, civil rights, a government, a congress, and a court system of law. The people could assemble, associate, speak, and write with freedom.

But as the people became unsatisfied with their governments, they chose to support new officials and were fooled by fake images of religion and a better life before reality began to set in.
