Corporate Fascism


Where is the outrage? Is the revolution ever coming? Bill O'Reilly gets fired for sexual harassment, yet Trump who brags about sexually harassing women (and who demonstrated his lack of respect for women with his lewd comments) is elected president?! Corporations have created a corporate feudal system in which their employees are treated like wage…

Trump’s Great Motivator: Spite


Our country is being run by a man who has one goal: destroy President Obama's Legacy. He hasn't gotten his way with Republicans on The Hill. They either have the political aptitude to realize that they will not win in 2018 if they repeal Obamacare without a plan to replace, or they are decent human…

The Ubiquitous Talent of Our Small Town (South Boston’s Authentic “Will Huntings”)


Remember Good Will Hunting?--Specifically, do you remember the character Will Hunting? Let me refresh your memory: While at a bar with his loyal Southie friends, he notices a pretentious Harvard student trying to make his friend (Ben Affleck) look stupid in front of a group of attractive girls. Will comes to his friend's aid. After…

The Parasitic Neoliberal Agenda


Only a truly powerful group of ideological dogmatists, well-funded by our wealthiest citizens, could redefine American democracy, unscrupulously steal the sovereignty of the American people, and obscure the belief in the progressive economic values subscribed to by The Constitution's Framers. Friedman/Hayek's Chicago School of economics is a laissez faire, capitalist ideology parasitic by nature. Our…

We The People


It is disappointing that we have strayed so far from the core principles of our country. One cannot blame one party, one branch of government, or one politician. "The fault lies in our stars." The Founding Fathers, cognizant that a well-educated and civically engaged citizenry committed to their role as the guardians of the rights…

I’m Voting for Ed Flynn


Ed Flynn grew up and still lives in South Boston, one of the neighborhoods that make up our District 2. He shares the collective values of our diverse district of Bay Village, Beacon Hill, Chinatown, The South End, and South Boston. And that is I will vote for him on November 7, 2017 come rain,…

Our president is defending–not condemning–neo-nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups


There is no room for equivocal statements when neo-nazis are marching through our cities. Sure, they have the right to freedom of speech, and I know that the message of love and unity will always defeat the message of hate and division in the marketplace of ideas. So give these philistines their march with their…

The Jewish Roots of Catholicism; Jesus was a Jew


In 414, an entire community of Jews were violently assaulted by Christians to the point of extinction. This atrocity, like so many other other atrocities, stemmed from ignorance. Catholics based their faith, and excused their egregious behavior towards those of other faiths, with their comprehension of the early Christian Church, and the Nicene Creed. However,…

Hopelessness, Heroin, and Corporate America


"I've seen the needle and the damage done" sings Neil Young. We can relate to that verse. Due to overdoses, A whole generation of young men and women are dead, dying, lost. I have lost so many family members and friends to this insidious disease. Collectively, we shed a sacred river of tears. Today, I…

Trump antonymic to American and Christian Values


MLK beautifully writes of Aquinas' view of human law: "An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law. Any law that uplifts human personality is just. Any law that degrades human personality is unjust..." The current tax plan benefits the wealthy and corrupt, avaricious American corporations. Some…
