While we keep our social distance, and, while we watch Covid 19 rage across America, few appreciate a greater ‘virus’ that’s creating the ‘death’ of America as we knew her in 1965.

As quickly as the Coronavirus races across the American landscape killing thousands of people, another virus, self-imposed by our own elected representatives in Washington DC, races across our country at a rate of over 100,000 new additions every 30 days.  What constitutes this modern disease creating the ‘death’ of America as we knew her? 

The disease more dangerous and deadly than Covid 19?  Answer: endless legal and illegal immigration of third world people and their cultures and religions.  Few understand the

Part 5: Racism, Same Riddle, nasty situations

World War I U.S. Army General Smedley Butler said, “There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War is a racket. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. War is just a racket...

On January 26, 1947, my mother gave birth to her first-born child. That 8-pound 12 ounce bouncing baby boy turned out to be yours truly. Since my father, a Reed City, Michigan boy, and U.S. Marine M/Sgt.

Part 4: College, Vietnam, coming to terms with political corruption

When I entered college in the fall of 1965, I didn’t know anything about how our U.S. Congress worked. I didn’t understand the ramifications of entrenched corruption, good old boy clubs and how corporations greased the palms of our elected officials to overlook our laws or pass what they wanted. I didn’t think such honorable officials would cheat their own countrymen.

Part 2: High school, race riots, separate drinking fountains, Vietnam War

In my high school sophomore year, my father moved us to Albany, Georgia. At the age of 15, I jumped from a northern climate to the hot, muggy temperatures of the Deep South. Additionally, from getting beat up by bullies back in Michigan, I joined a whole new pecking order of southern hicks who wanted to show me where I stood—at the bottom of their pecking order.
