What do you mean “We Lost?”

What do you mean “We Lost?”

  Apoplectic: of a kind to cause or apparently cause stroke as in an apoplectic rage; also: greatly excited or angered as in she was apoplectic over the news. Hegemony: the social, cultural, ideological, or economic influence exerted by a dominant group. These are my new favorite words of the week.  They perfectly define the GOP and the right’s feelings, and the cause of those feelings, after last Tuesday’s re-election of President Obama. It has been quoted that the Romney camp ... Full Story

Is America in decline?

  Tomgram: Ira Chernus, Ignoring American Decline   Failure and unintended consequences: these are often hallmarks of U.S. military interventions.  Who could have imagined, for instance, that forcing open the Kingdom of Japan at the point of U.S. Navy guns would eventually lead to bombs falling on ships from that same navy at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii?  Or who could have foreseen that attempting to tip the scales in favor of French colonial forces in Vietnam in the 1950s ...

I have been able to ascertain that there is a big difference between managers and leaders. I have observed many competent managers but real leaders are few and far between. Leaders engender trust and loyalty because in addition to managing, they take care of their people. A reading of the D-Day invasion and landing at Omaha beach will illustrate this point. ...
