A House Divided – America’s Tribal Rivalries

Abe Lincoln

by Gary Spina “Oh, Lord, what fools these mortals be…” So wrote Shakespeare over 400 years ago.

John Boehner

by Gary Spina John Boehner has again proven to be a shameless hypocrite as he moved to punish his Republican colleagues who voted against his election to a third term as Speaker of the House.

by Gary Spina   Former New York governor Mario Cuomo died on New Year’s Day, 2015. He was a likeable man who loved his country. But Mario Cuomo was a hollow man — a man who, as governor, kept a full-time pollster on his staff. That alone says much about the man and his leadership…

Pieces of the American Pie

Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto

by Gary Spina “You have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.” Only this time it was Speaker of the House John Boehner taking a page out of Nancy Pelosi’s playbook as he strong-armed lawmakers to pass the 1700-page comprehensive 1.1 trillion dollar CR-Omnibus Bill. And like the Obamacare bill, Boehner’s “bipartisan,…

by Gary Spina Back in 1966, I was drafted into the Army. The first week was “Orientation,” or “Yelling and Screaming at the Young Recruits” week. Whatever they called it, most of it’s lost in a blur of memory now. All I know is, that whole first week I enjoyed the luxury of eely seven…

Enough of the People, Enough of The Time

Thomas Jefferson quote

by Gary Spina In April 2011, Barack Obama issued Executive Order 13571 “Streamlining Service Delivery and Improving Customer Service.” Think about that a minute.

by Gary Spina When Jesus said: “You will always have the poor,” I’m sure he included the homeless. I’m just a poet, among other things. I write poems and songs both serious and humorous.
