video still of President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at Rose Garden press briefing

by Richard Cameron “Tax Reform” and the myth of the corporate tax rate Donald Trump, together with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell,  participated in a press conference in the Rose Garden on Monday – a Q and A preceded by one of Trump’s excessive, rambling, largely incomprehensible word salads.  It was, as we have come to expect –  riddled with false statements and devoid of factual data. The scope of the questions and answers was too broad to deal with in their entirety here, but one topic that came up…

Danger Ahead! The Runaway Tractor Trailer Rig – Trump’s Presidency

by Richard Cameron Trump’s Runaway Presidency The standard metaphor for anything that is going “south”, that is to say, badly wrong, is a speeding train hopping the rails – an impending train wreck. Since it is so overworked and such a cliché, perhaps we should opt for another analogy to the Donald Trump presidency – the runaway semi-tractor trailer. In this one, the president is the owner-operator of the bigly rig and the rig is the Office of the Presidency and the contents of the trailer is the stability and…

US_Navy Aerial_view_of_the_Washington_Monument

by Tony Wyman Trump’s Ethnic Nationalism America’s last nationalist president was Ronald Reagan, but there was a stark difference between the nationalism of the country’s 40th and 45th presidents. In 1980, when the country elected Ronald Reagan president by a 51% to 41% margin, America was reeling from the failures of the Carter Administration. Soaring unemployment, the humiliation of the Iranian hostage crisis and the resultant military catastrophe during our attempt to rescue them, the decline in American prestige around the world and an overarching sense of pessimism about the…

Sifting Through Conspiracies in the Las Vegas Tragedy

By Janice Barlow Sadly, a mass, deadly attack has once again occurred inside our own borders. We can no longer assume that it is safe to be in the United States compared to say, Europe, Australia or South America. The desensitized nature we had grown accustomed to regarding our surroundings no longer applies. We must be wary and on guard at all times, and even that vigilance won’t always guarantee complete safety. Rather than focusing on the argument of owning assault weapons, I am currently concerned with the impulsive need of…

by Tony Wyman Catalonia’s bid for independence Following days of protests, riots and violent scuffles with police trying to disrupt the vote, Catalonians overwhelmingly said “yes” to a referendum demanding independence for the region found in the eastern portion of the Iberian Peninsula. Casting nearly 2.2 million votes, 91.96% supported the move to independence.  But with fewer than 43% of registered voters casting a ballot, Spaniards opposed to Catalonian independence cried foul.  They claimed the vote was illegal and backed the government’s attempt to shut it down. King Felipe VI,…

Exhibit with portraits and names of past and present Nobel Prize winners in the biological sciences

by Richard Cameron Nobel Prize Winners for 2017 and their insight on how genes effect the biological clock For years, scientists have argued that humans and animals have internal biological clocks that regulate important functions, particularly sleep and that these clocks also affect brain patterns, glandular activity and other organs of the body. The reality of this was generally accepted in the scientific community, but the mechanism of how the bio-rhythms operated at the cellular level was not fully understood. Yesterday’s winners of the Nobel Prize in Physiology, Doctors Jeffrey…

by Richard Cameron   Ever since Facebook arrived on the scene in Cambridge, Mass in 2004 (yes, that far back), it has been surrounded with controversy and detractors.  Anything that has such a wide reach throughout the fabric of society is bound to. Much of the criticism is valid. Facebook has provided not only a platform for social interaction, but also for government surveillance of citizens and for opportunists looking to exploit or steal your personal data. I have also written about the phenomenon of “Facebook Jail” – a place…
