Our Own Worst Enemy

October 16, 2013

The Other Side of the Tracks A Socially Speaking commentary by Perry Redd I’m trying not to get consumed by the day-to-day antics of the 2013 government shutdown, but I’m a “politics junkie.”  I want to stay apprised of the next dumbfounding Republican offer to end the shutdown.  In all of the antics, I continue […]

The Other Side of the Tracks, A Socially Speaking commentary by Perry Redd Once again, the President is playing the tune of indifference, the tune of disconcern, the tune of white men.  He is definitely a president like all others.  The previous 43 presidents were white males, and so is this one.  “Nobody cares how […]

Audacious Arrogance

December 5, 2012

The Other Side of the Tracks: A Socially Speaking commentary December 4, 2012 By Perry Redd You’re watching what I’m watching:  an injured team playing with a losing hand, trying to bluff their way to a victory.  “Never let ‘em see you sweat” is inapplicable when you’re in the furnace.  The Republican Party is working […]

Election of Illusion

November 14, 2012

The Other Side of the Tracks: A Socially Speaking commentary November 13, 2012 by Perry Redd You saw what I saw…or didn’t see. I’ve lived through twelve presidential elections, and I’ve never seen a show of deception so transparent and overt as this one. It was pure illusion and a frontal insult upon Americans—and to […]

New Chance to Change

November 7, 2012

The Other Side of the Tracks: A Socially Speaking commentary Another election has come and gone, yet not without controversy.  In the future, I predict, they will be even more controversial.  As long as there are resources to be had, elections, with the reigns of power in sight, will be volatile. I hope that the […]
