America’s Darkest Hour

Considering the FBI

by Andrew Joppa “That job should not be a political job. We should not be hearing very publicly from the leader of the FBI.” Pam Bondi It is time we give serious consideration to the disbanding of the Federal Bureau of investigation.

The Bigotry of Low Expectations – Andrew Joppa

There are many ways that bigotry can be demonstrated. The major bastion of bigotry that remains, and perhaps its most insidious form, is the bigotry of low expectations. This manifests itself within a presumption that a group is so inherently inferior that it must be treated in a manner that creates allowances for their inadequacies. Within this model, there is ...

Meaningful Programs to Fight Homelessness in Florida

By Robert Ehrlich and Vann Ellison Florida faces significant challenges of homelessness relative to its large population, but has made measurable progress in recent years in reducing numbers of individuals on the streets.

Building a Stronger Cage – Andrew Joppa (1/12)

Reading by the Numbers – Andrew Joppa (9/11)

I offer the following as an assessment of Islamic thought pertaining to jihad and its implications that must be measured in considering the vast number of refugees flooding the West, mostly Muslims. Our Western filter, when it exists at all, is set at screening out the active terrorists among them. The assessment that follows, however, makes clear it doesn’t matter ... Read More »

Ninety-Nine for a Rainy Day – Andrew Joppa (9/11)

Here are ninety-nine of my random…and in some cases, previously undisclosed, thoughts. If you agree with all of them it would certainly surprise me… and should worry you. I have always felt that short, pithy, statements can have more impact than full tomes. Of course, not every pearl is a “keeper.” I have not prioritized these thoughts nor are they ... Read More »

Refugees; Weapons of Mass Destruction – Andrew Joppa (9/6)

First, I must offer the obligatory, Western, guilt laden, apologetic. That is, it is obviously horrifying when anyone is displaced or damaged by war, chaos and violence. Refugees that are created within this process should be given assistance until that danger either passes or is eliminated. Having given you that obvious starting point for our conversation let’s move beyond that ... Read More »
