The Decay of Our Political System in the #UnitedStatesofAmerica & its Possible Revitalization / #JustGoForth #BeUnstoppable #newday

“When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with one another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

So sais the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America in its first opening salvo. A cannon shot heard across the world which would forever change the course of human events.


When the top leadership position in our country is attainable by means of deceit and subtle craft democracy gets dealt a blow of epic proportions. 

When a man or a woman reaches forth to the presidency in our modern era, they are stopped by an onslaught of political forces aimed at controlling the seat of power. The message that arrives is to integrate into the established ways and methods or bow out. These methods entail courting corporations, organizations and entities looking to influence the course of events, and protect their bottom line by furthering their objectives.

This is the way it is now. The American presidential job does not go to the best man or woman, but to he or she who is able to garner the favor of such self-serving forces, right or wrong, as opposed to garnering the favor and heart of the American citizen. Some of these forces are benign and look to serve the greater good of the American people, yet some are selfish and seek to protect their own interests and increase their influence on the national and global landscape. 

  1. A separation from the current form of practiced government is needful in order to protect this American union. It has been longstanding that these established forces have amassed a hold on the highest seat of government and the common man and woman’s say has been relegated to an exercise in futility, a show and nothing more.
  2. It is not possible for a man or a woman with just intellect and a good respect for the governing foundations of this country to sit in the highest seats of government, less they be chosen by the powers that be to attain to such offices. 
  3. The advent of technology has served in helping to level the political field to an extent with the rise of social media platforms freely open to the common man and woman. These platforms allow for the dissemination of information on a national and global scale, allowing voices and opinions to flow outwardly to a greater number of citizens, thereby helping to influence political thought and opinion. Notwithstanding, the control of the release and scale of political thought and opinion by ways of technology is under control by established gatekeeping forces, organizations and governmental bodies, thus, true freedom is restricted and the political exercise of liberty is placed under virtual arrest and monitorization.
  4. The use of traditional social media outlets, such as those found on radio and television are vastly under the influence of established forces and these once again, impact the flow and content of information release as it seems fit to the powers that be, which are supposed to be our ministers of justice. Thus, true political thought and opinion is suppressed and stifled to a great degree.

If this be the case, then freedom does not ring from coast to coast, but is relegated as footnote in our American history. What is the just man and woman to do in the face of such a self-serving system? As far as history has been written, no established power has ever stepped down willingly. Physical violence against each other is not the answer. A honest discourse by each fellow man and woman is needful with a multitude of voices going forth and entering the political arena IS the answer. By raising our voices and not going away, by holding our stances with love for our brothers and sisters we can bring in a new day for America. 

Therefore, it is asked of the American community to step into liberty by exercising it on a daily basis, as opposed to leaving that job to radio, television and governmental personalities. This is my land, this is your land. Let us not give it away as we make our living, otherwise America is no more America. 

May God bless all Americans, no exceptions.

Clinical Teachers: Armies of One / #edchat #criticalthinking #education

It is not the responsibility of empty vessels to create the motivation to learn, but rather, the prerogative to teach, the very responsibility of it, must be entrusted to the teacher. It can be so, that according to a child’s social-economic status, a affluent upbringing can be infused with a ‘comfort space’ of human development not generally experienced in the life of the child who hails from a low-income community. 
This juxtaposition in the human development and daily experiences of the affluent child and the child who lives at or near the poverty line bring a different array of positive and negative forces which impact their general well-being. As these two general sets of children age, the difference becomes more contrasted and is clearly evident at the time both reach middle school years. One need only look at children who receive private schooling as opposed to those who receive public school education in low-income neighborhoods. A child who attends private schooling and then e…

The Golden Rule & The Duty of Critical Thinkers / #socialresponsibility #edchat #TeamUSA

updated 2:24 pm est 11/10/17 The idea of cultivating critical thinkers is easily a lofty ideal purported to be achieved throughout academia and espoused as the hallmark of journalistic integrity.  Achieving the critical thinking mind requires a certain bravery, wherein, once our ability to tap into our own knowledge of content matter is done, we must require it upon ourself to contrast our assessment and infer from an ‘outsiders’ point of view what is true and right and what is inaccurate and, even possibly, the propagandization of a special interest.
For the critical thinker, the affinity to discern is attached to our decision to look at the hard truth and favor this over our viewpoints, our political inclinations, and our stance on any given subject. This is hard to do.
In the following essay, I ask what exercise in democracy is achieved if political forces practice varying levels of indoctrination, in effect swaying public interest towards their ‘camp,’ rather than promoting …
