Israel should not use fear to discredit the US: Do not cut down the tree that gives you shade

The pressure over Iran is mounting in Israel and the United States. The Obama administration has been accused by the Israelis of refusing to meet Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Should Obama change his economic strategy? When the shadow of a tree is bent, straighten the tree, not the shadow

Should Obama change his economic strategy? When the shadow of a tree is bent, straighten the tree, not the shadow

The American economy and the Democrats are like a man and his shadow. Despite a euphoric three days at the Democratic convention, the news that the US economy added fewer jobs than expected in August brought the Democrats back to reality. While I agree that fewer jobs added is better than jobs lost, the economy is […]

Is Herman Cain still a political influence: A tree is best measured when it is down

Herman Cain has quit his bid for the US presidency. It was inevitable. Too many women popped up from nowhere to put him down. Now that he is out of the race, his ex-contenders are waiting anxiously for his endorsement. The most likely candidates are Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich: Romney, a fellow businessman, and […]

Reform should weed out sexual immorality in politics: A tree is straightened while still young

America deserves the politicians it has. The latest scandal about a lewd picture of congressman Anthony Weiner confirms once again that Democrats in Washington are not saints. Imagine if Anthony Weiner was a Republican! the scandal would be a political earthquake. Only a naive person would believe that the liberals are the good guys and the […]

A future Christian-free zone in the Middle East? A tree is known by its fruit

The killing of Christian copts in Egypt is another tragedy that we are witnessing now against non-Muslims in the Arab world. There is clearly a connection between what is happening in Iraq and what just happened in Egypt. Should we condemn Pastor Terry Jones of Florida who made headlines for threatening to burn the Koran? Are […]

Is Assange safe? Do not speak of rhinoceros if there is no tree nearby

After been arrested over rape allegations in Sweden, Julian Assange (of WikiLeaks fame) has regained his freedom after posting a bond to the British authorities. To me, Julian Assange is a living hero for his WikiLeaks work. His actions there are courageous. I’m concerned his life is in danger. The US government especially will do everything to arrest or […]

Bristol Palin Dumps Levi Johnston Again: Those who do not listen to the voice of the elderly are like trees without roots.

Bristol Palin, the daughter of Sarah Palin, has called off her engagement to Levi Johnston. Given their immaturity, their calling off their marriage again is not a surprise. They do not know what a marriage is about. What Levi said in the past about her family didn’t give a chance to their marriage. All was predictable. It was only […]

Joe Biden Embarrassed in Israel: Do not cut down the tree that gives you shade.

The recent visit of US Vice President Joe Biden showed that the US and Israel are in disagreement  over Jerusalem building projects.

Charles Rangel Steps Down: A tree is best measured when it’s down.

While many see the fall of Senator Charles Rangel as the fall of a “Black political figure” (since America sees things in term of color), I see his fall as the end of a crook who happened to be Black and Democrat. It is unbelievable to hear that, still, he’s planning to run again for […]
