Dream a Higher Vision for Health Care

This week, Bernie Sanders and a number of other senators introduced a “Medicare for All” bill.  It made somewhat of a media splash when it was introduced….yet most of the articles I read included some commentary that there was little chance that the bill would make much progress through a Republican controlled Congress. [NOTE:  For a quick review of the bill, here is a nice summary from NPR.] To that last point, I would say “so what?”…after all you have to start a higher vision somewhere…should we not hold a higher dream for our country simply because it currently...

The Deep Power of Grief

Yes, I’m still here. Yes, it’s been over 3 months since I have written an article here….the longest span between blogs since the website was created in January 2010. Why did I this take time off? What have I been doing? It all has to do with grief. I know that grief is not a subject that we like to read about….in fact, we like to avoid grief and those who are grieving as it often makes us uncomfortable. However, I ask you to bear with me for a few minutes as I discuss my experience….an experience that I...

Our Desire for Meaning

Have you ever wondered about why you are here?  The meaning of life?  Why everything exists?  Where your consciousness comes from?  Is there a purpose to your life and how you fit in with this universe?

Spiritual practices. Meditation. Just sitting and wondering. Discussing life with others–around the cave, the campfire, the church, the university campus, the coffee shop. These are just a few of the many ways that we all...

Hear “Tax Relief”? Reply “Tax Justice”!

The NY Times reported yesterday that due to all the troubles brewing with the Trump White House…..Russians impacting the election, the Flynn matter still in play, the Comey firing, giving confidential information to the Russians, the memo written by Comey detailing Trump’s request to stop the Flynn investigation, etc (see note at bottom)….Republicans are seeing their hopes for “tax reform” fading away this year. This might be a good thing for us. Yet some Republicans are still holding out hope that they can pass some kind of “tax cuts” this year.  However, as the Times article states, “Analysts on Wall...

Republicans Need to Fire Trump

Which is more important….having your political party in power so that you can force through your ideological agenda…..or maintaining the integrity of our American political system and way of life? So far, most Republicans….not all, but most….are so drunk on the potential of moving through a conservative agenda (or what passes for one these days) into law that they first held their noses and supported Trump during the campaign (in spite of his mean spirited campaign rallies, his Access Hollywood tape, and more) and are now looking the other way on offenses so egregious that it threatens to turn...
