The Republican Party – Art of the Bad Deal

A Dispatch from Trumpistan — I didn’t know where to start with this one. I’ve been putting this one off for awhile now.

A Nation of Strangers

Earlier this spring while speaking with educators and mentors of mine who were visiting New York City from my hometown in the midwest, a voice called out to me “you live here?” “Yes, ma’am, I do”, I replied. A politeness that does not leave me just because I’m in Urbania now, which is filled with…

Farewell Barry, and Thank You.

New York, NY — The other night before going to bed I watched the Netflix original “Barry.” The film was a slice-of-life moment during Barack Obama’s years at Columbia undergrad in New York City. Last night, I was barnstorming NYC going from protests to anti-inauguration networking events and fundraisers and meeting many people I have never…

The Greater Recession: Party’s End and A New Beginning.

New York, NY — (the capital of national Democratic Party incompetence, cluelessness, and cultural excess). The beating heart of America and the state of New York (like every state) is the people.
