This blog has been created to encourage readers to examine viewpoints they might not come across in their daily routine. As an advocate of lifelong learning, our objective is to provide articles dealing with a range of issues. We do not necessarily endorse the views of all the articles herein, but offer them as Food for Thought. The site will not promote any political, religious or corporate agenda. The site features three pages: Food for Thought, Observations (the writer’s viewpoint) and Miscellanea. It is updated weekly.
Food for Thought — Poor health-care ranking: a sign our system needs fixing; Why we need to remain vigilant to protect our health care, and the Omar Khadr affair. Observations — When our elected lawmakers become lawbreakers Miscellanea — Six ways Trump is ‘dismantling’ the U.S. after six months in office.

“Decency, security, and liberty alike demand that government officials shall be subjected to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the citizen… If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.” — Louis D. Brandeis
