¿Path to Citizenship? Unless you live under a rock you know we have an illegal immigration problem. From what I understand, the position of the Latino community is if you speak Spanish you should be allowed to stay in the USA or immigrate. Forget that you are a felon, have a terminal disease, no skills, or entered the USA illegally. Not only do we
Cutting taxes as a way to the poorhouse. A commentary for my fellow Americans No question, government agencies can blow through money. The recent farce at the GSA gives new meaning to the term government waste. And I am surely not the only American who wonders what Secret Service agents’ cavorting with prostitutes has cost taxpayers. Then there
This article is written not to offend but to open your eyes and mind to possibilities. In the time I've been writing articles, short stories, novels and poetry, along with hosting a weekly radio show, I've seen human nature up close. I've found a few, and I must emphasize 'few' artists, business owners and service providers who believe in reciprocating the time and effort others take in sharing their information.
A while ago, I wrote this article in hope of gaining support and interest in all towns and cities Historical Societies. Most are non-profit, many without aid from their own cities and towns. As I see more and more artifacts, buildings and structures from the past torn down, demolished or closed due to lack of interest or financial support of the citizens or city officials, I knew it time to do whatever I was able to stop this insanity. This feeling of discontent has been growing and festering inside of me for the last few years and I know of no better way to release such negativity than to express my personal feelings on Preserving our History than to speak openly to you.
There has been a lot of discussion about a right wing war on women. I don’t believe it, not for an instant. I do not believe that the conservatives of America are waging war on their wives, their daughters, their mothers. Quite the contrary! I am sure they are dedicated to the women in their lives, even fiercely dedicated to protecting their women.
For over a month I have been following and thinking about the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Why? Because there is something iconic in this story, something that speaks to the very heart of our society and how we as a nation think. The facts: A young man, a teenager, walked to the store and bought himself an iced tea and a package of cand
The Killing Case has generated a huge amount of protest for the victim 17 year old Trayvon Martin and his killer 28 year old George Zimmerman. Martin was on his way back to his father’s girlfriend’s home from a convenience store when he was confronted by Zimmerman. Zimmerman (a community watch captain) called the Sanford PD to report suspicious activity from a “Black guy” and followed Martin before shooting him. Now it’s been said by Florida prosecutors that Zimmerman has 85 to 95% chance of not being charged at all. Now that’s suspicious activity! Back story: Martin was 17 years old, 6'3" and weighed 140 pounds at the time of his death. Martin lived with his mother and older brother in Miami Gardens Florida. He had hoped to become an aviation mechanic or engineer after transferring to Krop Senior High his sophomore year.
As of April 02, 2012 George Zimmerman has not been charged with any crimes at all. That is the reason why I wrote this article. Most importantly, did Trayvon commit any criminal acts the day he was killed? I see at least three crimes Zimmerman committed before shooting Trayvon with one of these crimes punishable by death in most states*. Stal
