They Came For Us Too

If there is anything I am paranoid about it is about my fate. But I have faith. My faith tells me that there are forces – the agents, after me. This world is similar to the movie, the Matrix, in some ways. In other ways it is not – naturally. But time is ticking. ThereContinue reading “They Came For Us Too”

Who Is Tim Kaine? A Brief History

Tim Kaine has been officially declared as Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential running mate. As news tabloids emblazon images of the newly chosen “veep” on television and computer screens, many ordinary Americans are left wondering – who is this guy?

Public servicesContinue reading “Reading the Trump Card”

Today, it is more veiled – nonetheless in today’s political arena, we are witnessing the ugliness of America’s culture of bigotry creep in. The Republican party has been reduced to a conservative, racist party of white men & their brainwashedContinue reading “We Major! Minorities in America in 2016 & Beyond”

Sufi in America

While I stand with solidarity with my Muslim brothers and sisters, I must make the statement that not all Muslims have long beards, wear hijabs or are super religious. In fact, my interpretation of Islam would likely be deemed too liberal for the hardline orthodoxy. But that’s when things get political. Just keep in mind, thereContinue reading “Sufi in America”

Nothing New – American hypocrisy at GOP Debates

Pretty sure more democrats have lived pay-check to pay-check than Republicans. On immigration, Rubio cannot backpedal. His family came here illegally. His father worked illegally. Speaking in vague nationalistic sensationalist terminology is a strategy, not a victory. Pointing out realities without solutions is worthless. What does Marco Rubio know about American complicity in propping up non-democraticContinue reading “Nothing New – American hypocrisy at GOP Debates”
