May 23, 2016 // 0 Comments

America’s Decline and the American Judiciary

May 16, 2016 // 0 Comments

As I watch the world around me these days, I get a gnawing feeling of apprehension, sadness and disappointment that is palpable. Whatever we believed about America, whatever we were taught– as citizens of what was the greatest country on Earth in history–we must now face some hard truths. America is in rapid decline primarily because it is owned and run by predators and it remains “great” only for the biggest richest criminals (read income disparity) who are above the [- more...]
