Episode 15: Men Should Be Barred from Politics

Episode 15: Men Should Be Barred from Politics

December 26, 2020

Men have been making a mess of politics since time immemorial. So it might seem natural to expect women now to clean it all up.

But the only hope for (man)kind is for this role reversal of the sexes to take place, and the sooner the better.

Episode 14: Hamilton Crowned King of F1. So Why Kneel for a Knighthood?

Episode 14: Hamilton Crowned King of F1. So Why Kneel for a Knighthood?

December 18, 2020

It’s arguable that Lewis Hamilton is as popular a sports figure outside America as Tiger Woods. Yet relatively few Americans know his name, and even fewer follow his sport, Formula One racing (F1).

This talk continues the quixotic quest I began on my blog 13 years ago to give him and F1 the recognition they’re due. Because Hamilton is not only doing for FI what Woods is doing for golf, but also doing for racial justice what Colin Kaepernick tried to do.

Of course, like all sports stars, Hamilton has his flaws. But the only one I find unforgivable is his own quest to be knighted by the queen of England.

Episode 13: My American Friends Doing ‘God’s Work’ with Malawi Talent Fund

Episode 13: My American Friends Doing ‘God’s Work’ with Malawi Talent Fund

December 12, 2020

Like the institution of Slavery, America’s treatment of the poor remains an indelible stain on its character and a damning charge against its soul.  But the abiding irony is that, just as American abolitionists provided a measure of redemption with respect to the former, American charities are providing the same with respect to the latter.

In fact, no people in the history of mankind have practiced the proverb ‘charity begins at home and spreads abroad’ quite like Americans. This talk hails the efforts of just two of them who are doing abroad in Malawi what so many do at home in America.

Episode 12: Maduro Outlasting Trump Like Assad Outlasted Obama (”Black-Swan” Song for Trump)

Episode 12: Maduro Outlasting Trump Like Assad Outlasted Obama (”Black-Swan” Song for Trump)

December 5, 2020

No person on this planet gets under Donald Trump’s skin quite like Barack Obama. This is why nothing would drive him crazier than being trolled for showing the same kind of fecklessness he trolled Obama for showing. But this was undeniably the case with their bungled attempts to get rid of President Maduro in Venezuela and President Assad in Syria, respectively.

Also, given that Trump is now a certified lame duck, this talk includes a swan song on his dystopian presidency. But I hope you’ll forgive my diogenesian tone. After all, I duly scoffed at the very notion of anyone voting for him in “Trump for President? Don’t Be a Sucker! April 8, 2011, and when the unthinkable happened, I sounded the alarm in “WTF: President-elect Donald J. Trump?! America. What. Have. You. Done?” November 9, 2016.
