Imagine a world where every war or armed conflict is fought through two rival sports teams of each opposing country or region on an Olympic game field. The entry fee is $500 million in gold bars or sterling silver coins. The winner of the game claims their money and a prize of peaceful territorial control, until the next Olympic event when the losing team has an opportunity to compete again and reclaim what was lost. If the country or region of either team breaks the rules and ensues in any form of armed conflict, the gold is transferred to an established charity in a different country other... (more)
The unpaid college intern working in my office shared with me how she had just been hired by Bloomberg's CEO program and was placed on a monthly stipend for the length of the program, which lasts less than a year. Her concern was the hiring manager told her to apply for food stamps since her stipend would barely cover rent in New York City.
"Wow. A program created be a BILLIONAIRE cannot afford to pay a college graduate a decent living wage?"
I laughed so hard tears came to my eyes.

After a trip to the grocery store with her father, my half African American and half Latin godchild came running into the living room in tears. She immediately crawled into my arms, and buried her head in my shoulder. I patted her back, "What's wrong sugar?" She sat up, rubbed her eyes and said, “A mean man pushed my daddy at the store, then he called him a Nickel." I looked over at her father with a puzzled look on my face. Her father reached out to console her by rubbing her back, "Daddy is alright baby, its ok. He called me a bad word but he didn't hurt me...I'm ok." She sat up with a frown... (more)

One Friday afternoon I was walking out of my building on the way to meet a friend for dinner. When I stepped outside, five young boys from my neighborhood were chasing after what appeared to be a bird. At first glance I could not tell what type of bird it was because it had flown down beneath the sidewalk to the alley where the recycle bins were below us. I watched as one of the boys clamored and tried to grasp the bird with his hand, but the bird flew back up over the sidewalk and darted across the street. The bird was suddenly hazed by a moving vehicle passing by and fell to the ground. The... (more)
If you walk past Marble church at the corner of 29th and 5th avenue in New York City, you cannot help but notice the thousands of colorful- gold, blue and green ribbons hanging from theÂ iron gates. These ribbons are symbolic prayers for peace and are significant because they each represent American service people and IraqisÂ who have lost their lives in the current war. WhenÂ I stroll past these ribbons, I intentionally extend out my hand to touch the soft fabric, and plastic tags of the soldiers names.
Soldiers; fathers, sons, brothers, husbands, sisters, mothers, wives, daughters,Â... (more)

Bombings) in a crater near the moon’s south pole at approximately 4:30 a.m. PDT this Friday, October 9th, 2009. Here are a few things to take into consideration before we begin blowing up the moon:Would someone explain how scientists find frozen water on a planet with no atmosphere, that has remained virtually unchanged for 4.5 billion years? Oh, it must be some sort of magic trick. Perhaps they are really looking for oil. Once the frozen water is "discovered," via "excavation" is... (more)

He's now 82 years old and has a new book, 'Where Have All The Leaders Gone?'.Lee Iacocca Says: "Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where the hell is our outrage? We should be screaming bloody murder! We've got a gang of clueless bozos steering our ship of state right over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can't even clean up after a hurricane much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when... (more)
" In order that there be no misunderstanding about the serious charge which I bring against vaccination, as being now actually more dangerous to public health and human life than natural smallpox, and the equally serious charge which I make against vaccinating doctors-who now control our Departments of Health and Vital Statistics-of denying and concealing these facts from the people...
