These posts reflect my original interest in American politics, history and political theory broadly cast. I’m interested in exploring the nexus between American Political Development (APD) and American Political Thought (APT) as well as American Studies and Africana Studies or all regional “studies,” including working with Gajo Petrovic a leader in Praxis published in the former Yugoslavia.

This was the reason I stayed in politics for my Ph.D. rather than leaving for law school, history, sociology or business school as faculty kept trying to convince me to do in undergraduate and graduate school after spending a gap year reading Heidegger’s Being and Time with University of Zagreb philosophy professor Gajo Petrovic, who spent time at IAS and working with the author of the former Yugoslavian Constitution, the one that stuck — written in the 1970s.  The latter scholar attended the Sorbonne in the 1930s and ended his career as the Dean of the best law school in Belgrade.  In the 1980s the Fulbright funded his scholarship on Jefferson at Claremont Graduate School.  I worked with him for my B.A. thesis on Marx, existentialism, phenomenology and Yugoslavian self-management supervised by Claremont Men’s College’s public law professor Winston Fisk.

Too Tired, Too Many Global Golf Course Fries Trump

President Trump’s doctor says he may be eating too many fries at his global golf courses His so-called physician never named what food or when, naturally. Still, Trump’s clearly winning at Davos given double digit growth for double digit wealthy nations who have global leaders who are saying my how we’ve grown.
Well this is a surprise (not!)
Review Boardwalk Empire’s portrayal of 1-buck-Andy — Secretary of Treasury Andrew Mellon — if you don’t have the time and/or patience to read about him or his salary or compare Trump to Tricky Dick (Nixon) and his attempted firings and more.
