    The End of An Error

    Joseph Biden and Kamala Harris were inaugurated as President and Vice President of the United States this past Wednesday, January 20, 2021. Their inauguration ended one of the darkest eras in American history. Donald Trump was the worst president in American history. He was the most overt racist I ever saw (although I was not […]

  • I Renounce Donald Trump, & His Supporters

    The 2020 Presidential Election is on Tuesday November 3rd. I know that there are some Americans who are saying “I can’t wait until it is over, so we can stop with all of the political stuff”.

A few facts about our election system: There are currently 319 million people living in the United States.  As of 2012 (the last presidential election), 235 million people were eligible to vote (they were over the age of 18, and were citizens of the […]

  • Building Bridges

    I had a business trip scheduled several years ago in Sao Paolo, Brazil.  I was supposed to meet with a group of web designers who were going to help me build a website.  My boss connected me with this group of people- I had not worked with them before. I sent them a proposed agenda […]
