Save America? The Republicans need to save themselves from themselves!
The Republicans already made one really stupid move in their “political game of chess”. They let Trump become POTUS. They thought he would be their “pawn in a power play”. But they were WRONG! They couldn't control him!!
Now Trump has set his sights on being the head of Republican Party? WHOA! I'm just going to sit back and watch everybody engage in Kung Fu Fighting! LOL. We'll see if a head will rise or heads will roll. Or both! To quote the immortal words of Donald Trump ... “Let's wait and see.”
I always believed that when God created this world, He intended for any human being to be able choose to live anywhere they wanted to on Planet Earth. It was all good. Mankind, unfortunately, came up with a different plan. It was definitely NOT a better plan. More like a bitter plan.
At any rate, I respect Stevie Wonder's decision to choose Ghana. A person should have the right to choose where they live. But not many in the world are so blessed to be able to freely make that choice. I am also blessed. I made a decision to live in Austin, Texas USA. Lord willing, it's where I will die. #LivingAndDyingInAmerica

I was born and raised in the United States of America. When I came into this world, it was almost the end of the year 1955. Today I am in my 60s and over 6 decades, I have seen many instances of…

Are there any dishes that your mom used to make when you were growing up that you thought were incredibly delicious? Real comfort food. Dishes that are even more comforting when you think back fondly on that dish or those dishes and realize that you never learned the recipe or how to prepare it for your own family!
“Oxtail is a good source of protein and iron with one serving providing 30.8 grams and 3.6 milligrams respectively. 1 To get the most benefits of eating oxtail, include a variety of healthy vegetables in the recipe.” (Source: What Is Oxtail and…
Trying to settle a matter about color by just saying “Pick a color” is clearly not a solution!
I realized that Australia had a problem with racism when I was about to say Happy Independence Day but came across a bunch of angry tweets about the day. So I decided not get involved. We have racism in America but when it comes to our Independence Day, I think the only group that probably doesn't celebrate the 4th of July might be the Native Americans. I'm not sure if they celebrate Thanksgiving Day either.
The thing is racism is should not…
Politics versus religion. What’s the difference? In case one might think the lines are blurred … they are not! The difference between politics and religion can be summed up with two “C” words and two “E” words. Compromise. Conviction. Expediency. Eternity.
(Assumption: We are talking about politics in democratic or self-governing countries. Obviously, in dictatorships or similar forms of government, compromise is not entertained and your conviction will likely end in your demise. In those cases, politics and government are simply Rule The People With An Iron Hand. Whoever objects can either escape/relocate, go to prison or die! …
(Not sure what’s happening with America’s Republican party these days. But there’s clearly a shake-up (wake-up?) going on. ???)
Bobby Jindal was governor of Louisiana from 2008 to 2016.
Nikki Haley was governor of South Carolina from 2011 to 2017; the 29th United States ambassador to the United Nations from 2017 to 2018.
This is not a long-winded discussion. Just a quick observation about America’s the ever-changing diversity of America’s political arena.

I am very active in various social networks and online forums and communities where members often exchange opinions, thoughts and perspectives with each other on a wide range of topics. Like most people we say we like to avoid discussion about politics; but when somebody starts a thread, we can’t resist adding in our “two cents”.
Let me think. On January 20th, 2021, Kamala Harris was worn in as the Vice-President of the United States. I’m guessing … I said it’s a guess. I’m guessing it’s because POTUS Biden’s immediate “get down to business” work had something to do with…
