A
n unequal society is like tinder, dry and just waiting for a match to set it off. In the US case, add multi-ethnicity, a surfeit of guns, joblessness resulting in the blame game, and the environment is not only virulent but dangerously explosive.

M
ostly everyone in America has a sinking feeling that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) has gone way too far in trampling the civil liberties of average citizens, further augmenting and increasing the Police State already stamped on the books with then President Bill Clinton and then Senator Joseph Biden’s Community Oriented Policing (“COPS”).

O
ne does not have to be a rocket science to deduce that it feels that 90% of the television shows being broadcast on the American Mainstream Media television/movie/cable networks consist of an avalanche of gritty crime dramas, and in the last decade or so, have become exceedingly technical in nature, lionizing police officers, detectives, special victims unit officers, prosecutors and others, charged with investigating, indicting, arresting, and incarcerating Americans from all walks of life.

W
ith the elections over and a new president elected, half of the electorate is still reeling from the surprise upset created by Donald Trump. Due to the mechanisms behind the American democratic system, Donald Trump has managed to assume the highest office in the US and perhaps the world.

ere’s an idea – how about appointing a US Treasury Secretary who actually cares for the ultimate welfare of the American People and the United States of America for a change, as opposed to using his position as a “revolving door” a la the cadre of treasonous “America-last” gaggle of premeditated criminals merely taking a leave of absence from their full-time jobs at Goldman Sachs and Covington & Burling LLP?

Gentlemen, the issue is not whether I live or die, for death comes to us all sooner or later, the issue is whether corruption which is faster than death, catches up with you and once it has caught up, it may not easily let you go.” -Socrates

I
ndeed, sooner or later, we will all die; there is little doubt about that. But what may still remain in doubt is whether or not death will find us prepared for it; whether or not we will confront it as heroes or as villains, as the father of Western philosophy wisely reminded us some two thousand plus years ago.

F
idel Castro, South American leader and Cuba's former president, known as leader of the Cuban Communist revolution and iron man who could have caused a missile war in 1963 with USA by pushing the missile button, has died aged 90.

T
here exists abroad, and even here at home, a notion, a sort of assumed conventional wisdom, that the proper function of the Electoral College is that of rubber stamping the results of a popular vote computed state by state.

T
his is the week of the Thanksgiving holiday in the US. For many in our increasingly unequal society it is not a happy holiday. Triangulation has been the byword for President Obama's party -- a kind of centrism embraced by Democrats who did the work of the Republicans in the economic sphere while adopting a left-leaning social agenda. The author of this ... none other than recent presidential candidate Hillary's husband Bill Clinton.
