Opinion: Where does one find wisdom?

"Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.

Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who embrace her; those who lay hold of her will be blessed."

-Proverbs 3:13-18

Opinion: Why I vote?

I’m sure some of you remember what occurred just a couple of years ago, when Iraqis who voted for the first time in their lives, held up while smiling, a purple (I think) thumb signifying that they had cast their vote to elect new Iraqi leaders to govern their country. To many Americans who take voting for granted, and sadly, don’t even bother to vote, the smiling faces of those Iraqis in the news probably didn’t moved them one bit.

I’m one of those individuals who only if I were in… Continue

The rapidly increasing Hispanic population in the U.S. generates billions of dollars every year. Marketers take a look at Latinos’ purchasing power and then identify niche markets in hopes of making big profits.

It seems safe to assume that this spending pattern is due to the fact the Hispanic households are larger on average… Continue

Opinion: Are Unions Necessary? (Part II)

When I was a freshman in high school, Rudy Martinez, a close friend, was a senior. When I graduated in 1956, Rudy was still a senior.

Rudy had difficulty in some subjects: English, history, and math. How I laughed when Rudy would tell me that he became a senior with credits he accrued in physical education, and auto shop. After I graduated, Rudy was still a senior, and unable to graduate with the required credits, he quit school.
