Sam DuJour Issues of the Day ~ on Life, Politics & Sports

Apart from our SW&A practice, this Blog will occasionally reflect on the News Items of the day, usually with a link to a story and some commentary. Blog is designed to provoke thought and discussion, and it may (or it may not) reflect the Blogger’s own point of view.

He writes frequently about a Big Government that seems to have decided to replace Equal Opportunity with Equal Outcomes as a product and design of Governance!
