Dear Friends,

I've been watching the British drama, EASTENDERS on and off since the early 1990's. I needed a break from the deluge of tragic deaths and despondency that has a major prevalence in a soap opera that can be habit forming. Sometimes I compare my life with the characters on the Square and I'm content to live without the stress these folks are subjected to on every episode. By viewing the lives of these characters for over 30 years, one can be affected by the storylines where devastation is a non stop affliction. I stopped watching the show almost two years ago when one of my favorite characters dies in an accident that was shocking beyond belief!. I said to myself, this is enough, as I have become at times emotionally attached to several of the residents of the imaginary borough of Walford.

The personalities on the soap have an ability to become members of your friends and family, even though their entire existence is truly fictional. I for one appreciate the skill and imagination of the writers by the multitude of plots that are so devious that Satan must have been on the EASTENDERS payroll! Nonetheless, the range of emotions of the actors are exceptional and tremendously believable.

Just yesterday and by happenstance I decided to view the newest developments in a drama that I have not viewed for a long period of time. I had no idea this was the 35th Anniversary of EASTENDERS and when I viewed the storyline of the characters, I was shocked and dismayed of the living hell the inhabitants of this town must go through to acquire an ounce of happiness or wisdom that has rarely been found since I've been watching this show! With that said, as I mentioned earlier, if I were to compare my life with the residents in Walford, I can truly count my blessings as I'm happier that I could ever imagine!

While the old adage that 'truth is stranger than fiction', EASTENDERS has flipped this expression due to an ensemble environment that continues to plug circumstances considered unbelievable, but embedded in truth. For me, this is an EASTENDERS WEEKEND, as I catch up with the many episodes I missed.

Thanks again for your continuous support.

Dear Friends,

Today Americans celebrate PRESIDENT'S DAY. Of the 45 Presidents that have made their mark in history, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln have earned divine respect for their vision of a nation that has acquired a monumental presence in a world of moral misfortunes. Their innate ability to see the future by their actions is revealed in today's America. When the 1st President assured the colonies his recognition of a democratic republic is the form of government that allows Judeo-Christian principles to thrive, the path chosen was truly fortuitous. Many years later, the 16th President preserved the nation by his steadfast approach in overcoming the scourge of slavery through the Emancipation Proclamation and the termination of a Civil War under his immense leadership. Both men are recognized for their passion, devotion and character in the challenges they faced by those unable to view a republic established to elevate the human condition.

In President Washington's Farewell Address of 1796, the advice and observations he gave were significant, as his thoughts in regards to the travesty of political parties as a modicum for disloyalty and the causes that can lead to sectionalism, are relevant concerns in today's America. All citizens are urged to recognize the importance one must have for the stability of nurturing a nation, in principles that offer an outlook of encouragement in our daily lives and those of our countrymen.

The Emancipation Proclamation of 1862 in which President Lincoln by Proclamation and Executive Order invoked the abolition of slavery, is considered one of the most monumental moral acts ever inspired and accomplished in America and throughout world history. As an observer, one can say there are racial divisions in this country today. However, the prevalence of discrimination has been stymied through generations. The pain and suffering of our black citizens has resurrected the rise in love and compassion, as a sincere and heartfelt substitution for the turmoil inflicted. 

Through the actions of both Presidents centuries ago, America is indebted by the strength of their character and principled convictions. This nation is eternally grateful.

Thanks again for your continuous support.

Dear Friends,

Today is Valentine's Day! Love is recognized as the most gracious emotion one can give to another. When we appreciate the wonderful love we receive from our entire family, closest friends and even strangers, we are truly grateful for the life we've encountered by their presence in our lives. There is no other passion that has the capacity for the elevation of the human spirit, in which love is the only embodiment of goodness that conquers all. 

In a world where love is difficult to manifest without hindrance by circumstances that block the flourishing of respect, compassion or honesty, today is a reminder that our lives are truly empty when one does not experience the love from others.

The other day while I was driving around town, I flipped to one of my favorite radio music stations and was pleasantly surprised to hear the voice of Frank Sinatra. He sang 'I Wish I Were In Love Again'. The lyrics to this song are profoundly powerful, as I too wish for love to enter my life once again, before I'm called Home. Romance is full of serendipity, bliss and delight once you've found a soulmate in a world in which sadness, loneliness and insolence are prevalent.

For the souls seeking companionship on this day, the circumstances that have conspired to prevent love from flourishing, is determined by the development and evolution of one's character and unbeknownst forces. While this may be true, be content to embrace your family and friends, as their love for you is genuine and benign.  

Happy Valentine's Day!

Thanks again for your continuous support.

Dear Friends,

The State of the Union address given by the President in the House Chamber was viewed live by more than 37 Million Americans. Many discerning viewers of the event last Tuesday, February 4th, were profoundly optimistic of the accomplishments that have transpired economically, as record shattering statistics were mentioned by the Chief Executive. The employment figures were truly encouraging, as the nation is enthralled with the work ethic in supporting our families and ourselves. The teamwork of American citizens in helping neighbors and employers offering jobs at a remarkable rate, is the essence that propels us to reach the path that leads us to live the American Dream.

In just 3 short years, America has revitalized itself by government policies that have invigorated the temperament of one's demeanor towards an optimism of life not seen in many years. Concurrently with the prowess of the economy, common sense decisions in regards to America's foreign policy, has made this nation a much safer place to live. It is true beyond measure, our country is respected throughout the world as we have a leader that means what he says and says what he means. This is a rare ability to find in government and in those seeking to represent our interests.

The President and his supporters are eager for America to lift its fortunes by solving domestic and foreign problems that have created a despondency in the population due to procedures in which leftist programs are enforced. The establishment of Sanctuary Cities and allowing undocumented individuals the priority of rights and privileges denied to American citizens, is just an example of the denigration of a law abiding population. The proliferation of infanticide, the demeaning aspects of religious liberty, the rise of Anti-Semitism and the death of journalism, are just a few of the challenges that must be understood for its inhumanity and desecration of the human spirit.

The address had several guests that have encountered and acquired the gracious and merciful accoutrements of wisdom and discernment through personal experiences. The lives led by the guests and their trials and tribulations brought many viewers to tears, as the strength and love they have for others and their families was captured by their presence.

Unfortunately, the goodwill that was embraced by the President in his address to the American people, was defamed by the Speaker of the House in ripping up the Speech in front of the Chamber, the invited guests in the gallery and the American people. Since I can remember, I have viewed the State of the Union and have never seen such contempt for a President nor the American people by the repulsive disrespect of her actions. This repugnancy will live forever, as the Speaker destroyed the character of a political institution and the viability of the Democratic Party itself. Her leftist supporters along with the Press, will reason this implosion was not a mental disorder full of hatred, but a basic policy difference that was simply animated. The shocking display of what has occurred, continues its broadcast daily on television and on the internet. This event is a caustic reminder that has revealed the true substance of one's rabid views, in an attempt on trampling the rights of Americans enthroned in the Constitution. One's behavior does have an influence on how we as a people, discern the essential nature of a person's character by their actions.

The General Election in November, will provide the relief America demands, to end a behavior of those suffering an affliction that's recognized for its harm and cruelty.

Thanks again for your continuous support.

Dear Friends,

The acquittal of the 45th President by the US Senate of 2 Articles of Impeachment on Wednesday, was the constitutionally correct and judicial decision that restores the values of due process established by the Framers in America's founding. From the very inception of an 'impeachment inquiry' in the House, the inability for this body to exercise the tremendous responsibilities in ascertaining if High Crimes and Misdemeanors occurred in the Oval Office, were non existent. The simple evidence of a transcript released by the White House in its clarifying details of the conversation between the Chief Executive and the Ukrainian President on July 25th of last year, does not mention a 'quid pro quo' nor withdrawal of assistance that was approved by the US Government. This basic fact is all that is required, to end the ordeal that was fomented by a political party and a press unable or unwilling to interpret their overwhelming hatred for a President, a government administration, his beloved family and discerning Americans - by their insistence a crime was committed, when no evidence exists.

The Democratic Party along with the Press and leftist supporters harmed this nation by its disregard for the Constitution. When this entire 'impeachment inquiry' began, a presumed 'whistleblower' provided information in verbiage resembling a legal treatise with footnotes and dated news reports in which the President was excoriated by unsubstantiated actions in regards to implementation of policies involving the Ukraine. The 'inquiry' began by the Democrats was unfair, as the Republicans in defense of the President were prohibited to cross examine the witnesses recommended by the Democrats to testify before the House Intelligence Committee. Notwithstanding, the Republicans were prohibited in securing witnesses desirous to defend the President by their testimony. This method of jurisprudence is disconcerting, as all Americans have the right to be considered innocent before proven guilty.

 The questioning of 18 witnesses in the basement of the House Chamber without access to the public in the very beginning of an 'inquiry' to ascertain the facts, was designed to censor and limit the revelations that were disclosed. The hearsay accounts of disgruntled diplomats bewildered by an unorthodox Ukrainian policy endorsed by the President, became the rationale for the drawing of the Articles for Impeachment. This unfair rebuke of one's Constitutional rights is noteworthy, as there was only one individual that spoke to the President. In a private conversation, this Ambassador mentioned the President did not approve of a 'quid pro quo' in regards to withholding aid to the Ukraine for information of alleged corruptive activities by a former Vice President and his son. A direct reference to both men by name in the transcripts, were never mentioned.

As an Independent voter, I am convinced this entire scenario was orchestrated as a political device to rid this President from office without a crime ever being committed. The House Intelligence Committee Chairman has been excoriated by the general public for his contemptible obsession to destroy the President by all means necessary. Americans are exasperated by the continual desecration of the President, his family and supporters. A Constitutional Amendment to raise the percentage of House members as a requirement to begin an investigation or to vote for Articles of Impeachment, is a recommendation that will end the abuse that has transpired. In the future, a bipartisan approach to end a Presidency is the only acceptable process that can restore the integrity of government. Many Americans are relieved this chapter in American history has ended - in an acquittal.

Thanks again for your continuous support.
