EP 384 The Empty Throne Grows Dusty as America Sidelines Itself on the International Stage

The rules-based world order that developed after World War II was not an accident of history. It resulted from America’s vigorous leadership. So for our allies in Europe, Asia and around the globe is was so puzzling that President Donald Trump would walk away from treaties and organizations America designed.

EP 383 Census 2020 and Its Impact on Elections Going Forward

It is constitutionally required that we do an ‘actual enumeration’ of the residents of the United States every ten years on the 00’s. Well, it’s that time.

EP 382 A Soldier’s Disillusionment With Our Longest War

Before we engage in any war, Erik Edstrom asks us to imagine three visions: First, imagine your own death. Second, imagine war from ‘the other side’. Third, imagine what might have been if the war had never been fought. Through that lens and his own combat experience, Edstrom graphically depicts why in all his time … Continue reading EP 382 A Soldier’s Disillusionment With Our Longest War

EP 381 The Science of Achieving Adulthood is Changing and Many Are Abandoned in the Transition

  In 2017, research showed that 4.5 million Americans between the ages of 16 and 24 were neither in school nor working.  Falling into that gap is a far different experience than the one enjoyed by more affluent and socially connected people that age who can take a ‘gap year’ between high school and college … Continue reading EP 381 The Science of Achieving Adulthood is Changing and Many Are Abandoned in the Transition

EP 380 The Hardhat Riot Marks Moment the GOP and America’s White Working Class Came Together

Sometimes riots come to define communities as you attach the name forever in your mind with the riots–like Watts, Attica, Detroit and others.

Few, however, are as little remembered and yet profoundly impactful as what occurred on May 8, 1970, in lower Manhattan. … Continue reading EP 380 The Hardhat Riot Marks Moment the GOP and America’s White Working Class Came Together

EP 379 Religious Nationalists Have a Growing Influence on American Politics

While the number of religious nationalists may not be overwhelming their influence on American politics, and access to those in the White House, is a stunning political achievement.

EP 378 Whistleblower Portrays Serious U.S. Military Failures and Dishonesty

It’s tough to accept hard truths, but it’s also deadly and bewildering to continue to accept that the most well financed military in the history of the world has not had a true victory, while being involved in many conflicts, in the last 75 years. Why is this? Where do we begin? The quality of … Continue reading EP 378 Whistleblower Portrays Serious U.S. Military Failures and Dishonesty

EP 377 Vladimir Putin: Playing a Bad Hand Really Well on the World Stage

There are so many unknowns when it comes to Russia and its relations with the United States.  Quick quiz: friend or foe?

EP 376 The Much Misunderstood Purpose of the Second Amendment

In many ways, gun adherents and those who seek to control their use in America have something in common. They misinterpret the true initial intent of the Second Amendment.

EP 375 California on Fire

In California, fire is as natural and necessary as the rain and wind. Yet how humans manage to co-exist with flora and fauna determines whether natural cycles and events are manageable or rage out of control. Of late, we see, like the fires, the types of hurricanes and floods, more intense and more regular that … Continue reading EP 375 California on Fire
