Why America isn't the greatest country in the world anymore.

I like to think the U.S.A. is the greatest country in the world. I have heard it said, over and over. However, when I look around at the events and systems that hold our culture together, I know it is not true ... at least not now ... maybe never. We started out as a slave holding nation, which gives lie to the Declaration of Independence; we were founded on the principles of white, male, landowners as citizens, when suggested U.S. isn't a nation of the free, and we only made citizens of…

The Reverend John J. Raphael: Hypocrite!

This one has been kicking around in the back of my skull for nearly a year. I thought it would slip away like other stupid issues, but this one one kept coming back as I found it repeated at other locations. Finally, I felt it necessary to at least rebut the wet-dreams of a Catholic idiot.

Rebuttal

As a newspaper reporter I developed the terse style…

Ignorance and Stupidity in the U.S.A.

This is my first blog post on Nexus and with a title such as I have titled this blog, possibly my last but I hope not. A little about myself before we get into the meat of this subject...

I worked in a variety of jobs mostly in the corrugated box industry. I have lived in Columbus Oh, Jacksonville Fl, Greenbay Wi, Fargo ND and now I am back… Continue
