So, the American people have signaled a disenchantment with their form of government. The checks and balances that prevent one political ideology from overwhelming democracy and imposing it’s will on the  minority of Americans who did not vote for it, have been “weaponized” by Republicans, in recent years, to threaten the country with paralysis if not given their way. McConnell et al’s promise to thwart every proposal emanating from Obama’s desk in order to “forbid him a successful administration” EVEN if they saw benefit for the country as a whole, has de-legitimized this essential “brake” on executive power to the point that the voter simply rejected it. Trump’s campaign promise that “he alone can fix it,” was given short shrift by politicians and media alike, but was, in fact, THE fundamental promise of his entire campaign. We already see the marginalizing of congressional Republicans. By choosing New York as his centre of power, Trump is doing more than declining to live in a

Yes, ALL LIVES MATTER, but it's the Black ones that are being taken!. Here is the video of the show from September 29th A friend of mine, a black woman, posted this on her Facebook page  after Terence Crutcher was killed in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  She gave me permission to repost it and get a dialogue started. Please leave your thoughts in the comments section here or on my Facebook page. MY heart aches AGAIN and I HAVE to speak up AGAIN!  Some of you are recent new friends but let me tell you this has become a F*cking NORM here in America.  His NAME is Terence Crutcher. BLACK PEOPLE KEEP GETTING KILLED BY COPS THAT ARE SUPPOSE TO PROTECT AND SERVE NOT JUDGE and EXECUTE US (there is a difference between a cop and a policeman)!  Don't start with me that he should have obeyed this cop...HE WAS...HANDS UP heading to lean on his car BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT WE'VE BEEN TRAINED TO DO even though he was the person needing help with a stalled car but this is t

Thursday March 10, 2016 Here's A Thought with Charles Shaughnessy

TWO WORLDS: TWO SOLUTIONS All humans live in two worlds: the outside and the inside. All the evils in the world can be ascribed to two simple issues affecting our outside and inside world. In the outside world we perceive INJUSTICE. In the inside world we feel IRRELEVANT or without meaning. These two observations that we make: injustice in the physical world and irrelevance in our psychological world are responsible for the rise of dictators, suicide bombers, “Trumpeters,” and tribalism in its worst form. Whether it be an attempt to pre-empt this injustice and irrelevance or in reaction to it, the misery is the same.  How do we address this as a community, a country, a planet? Is there a political solution? A moral solution? A viable solution?  I believe this is THE conversation of the 21st. century. ADDITIONAL CLARIFICATION BY CHARLES SHAUGHNESSY FROM THE COMMENTS BELOW: " I really appreciate you jumping into this thorny question and I apologize for making it
