MOUNT VERNON, NY — October 2,  2019 — Tech companies have too much power — too much power over our economy, our society, and our democracy.  Well known anti -trust cases like the breakup of AT&T in the 1980’s, and the breakup of Microsoft in 2000’s, were well founded. Why? Those companies grew by acquiring their competitors, using private information …

MOUNT VERNON, NY — August 2, 2018 — Division, distraction, (and no other way to say it) lies are no longer a covert part of the 2018 White House strategy.  It’s deliberate misinformation used as a weapon to shock the public into submission, and as a tool to serve “red meat” to the President’s base.
