Journey (Book) - 4/27/2003 10:18:59 PM|
Well, your synopsis was enough of a hook to make me buy it, but then I read the excerpt and got downright angry because I'll have to wait until the darn thing arrives! Way to go, Amo!
Journey (Book) - 3/21/2003 11:40:03 AM
A second chance at life – how many of us are fortunate enough to get one? JOURNEY is an intimate look into the life and mind of main character, Bob Amato, as he seeks to rebound from a self imposed purgatory of despair.
This enjoyable read is cleverly crafted with a richly textured narrative that easily builds empathy between the reader and the characters. Especially moving are the scenes depicting Amato’s relationship with his family and the influence they exert on his life.
Bob Amato is endearing. Despite his flaws, I wanted him to win, and ultimately I admired the courage of his final choice.
Robert Amoroso’s, JOURNEY – a message about life and family that speaks to us all. ---

Hey that sounds pretty good Rob! I like thrillers that are written with a sense of understanding of the character, but leaves you hanging for more detail. Definite read.

Sounds great Amo. What a teaser you've given us. "Journey" is going on my "to buy" list.

Journey (Book) - 11/14/2002 1:06:40 PM
Sounds like a very interesting concept. I love the idea of having a second chance and want to know about the 3 choices he must decide between in 60 secs. Need more.

Thank you for your wonderful tribute. As a New Yorker,I, too, walked the great canyons of the "City that never sleeps" and to this day, my tears still roll whenever I glance at the heartrending photos of that fateful day. WE WILL NEVER FORGET!!!!

I loved the story, it reminded me of how I felt during the bombing in Oklahoma City. It was horrific, just like the Twin Towers leaving hearts and lives changed. You captured your thoughts well on paper. A wonderful tribute!

i've never walked the canyons of nyc...always wanted to...i'd never seen the twin towers...always wanted to...and it breaks my heart they're no longer there, unless they're twin towers of light
they are in my heart forever, and in my mind...before this terrible event happened
powerful, heartwrending write--well done--this is going into my library
(((HUGS))) and love,
i will always remember and never forget
I walk the canyons (a tribute to 9/11) (Short Story) - 9/13/2003 8:54:21 AM
Such a heartwrenching write; I am so sorry you saw this hell happening right in front of your eyes. My heart goes out to you and to ALL who witnessed the tragedy firsthand. It was a horrible, tragic day, and I shall never forget the disturbing images I saw that day, and I will ALWAYS remember. I have friends who lost friends in the World Trade Center, and my heart breaks for them and their families. Thanks to those evil terrorist jerks (I have another name for them), I will never get the chance to see the Towers; and 9-11-01 affected me deeply because I am a twin, and when the towers fell, it was as though a piece of my twin sister and myself had died. My heart also goes out to those lost on the airplanes and in the Pentagon and their families and friends. What a horrible, unbelievable, unforgettable day! We must ALWAYS remember and NEVER forget!
Thank you for sharing; this must have been very hard for you to write!
((((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))))))) and muhc love to you and to ALL New Yorkers (I have friends there), your new friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :( >tears, tears, tears <

ObamaCare…good medicine or bad investment? (Article) - 7/14/2012 9:15:31 AM
I'm all for a National Health Service, but not for putting money into the pockets of the health insurance companies, who provide no value for all their costs in profits, advertising, and administrative costs. We don't need them, but they wrote the ObamaCare bill. We're headed for becoming a 2nd rate power (maybe not such a bad thing)since our costs for healthcare are unsustainable.
The Obama Doctrine; “to fundamentally transform America” (Article) - 7/14/2012 9:00:20 AM
Robert, this is an insightful article, sadly enough. "An inexperienced, inept, likeable and clever Chicago politician" is the perfect description of our president. I think his policies are not so much carefully thought out as that they flow from his ideology. I would not like to see a giant welfare state, however it would be nice if so many people didn't have to go bankrupt to pay for health crises, and could actually get healthcare. I'd like to see Medicare expanded to everyone - I don't think that could be considered socialism, but simply everyone contributing to the common good, just as we do with education or fire departments.
Highjacking the Reagan legacy (Article) - 4/17/2012 3:38:25 AM
He's a pathological liar... plain and simple. John Lovitz should sue Barry for stealing his Pathological Liar Character. Tommy Flanagan... and renaming him Bar ock Ob ama. "That's right folks, I created 4 million new jobs...yeah...and I also saw Morgan Fairchild naked."
ObamaCare…good medicine or bad investment? (Article) - 4/6/2012 6:02:06 AM
Good Article, Robert...Let's see...if obamacare is okay, perhaps the government can take over the cotton industry and mandate that everyone has to picks cotton without pay in an attemp to reduce the cost of cotton shirts for congress and government workers,. Hmmm...wonder if that would be unconstitutional?
ObamaCare…good medicine or bad investment? (Article) - 4/6/2012 3:03:16 AM
No debate necessary…however I suspect that in 1776 the British Monarchy felt the same way…”it works”.
ObamaCare…good medicine or bad investment? (Article) - 4/6/2012 2:15:47 AM
I can see your arguments about forcing people to take something they may not want and Obama care was probably poorly presented. I don't want to get into a debate with you, but I will say that I have lived half my life in the US and half in the UK and I know from exprience that Britain's National Health Service does work.

The Obama Doctrine; “to fundamentally transform America” (Article) - 5/13/2010 10:09:02 AM
I'm really enjoying your articles. You're right on the ball my friend. Good work. As you know, Obama is simply an agent of finance-capital, a tool of Wall Street. When you take this up a level higher, one will note that the well-monied families are indeed collectivizing wealth at the top through the government- corporate socialist mechanism. Profits are privatized, losses are socialized and as they're robbing us blind, they leave behind a high-tech, military surveillance grid in our face to keep us on the floor. It's basically the agenda laid out by the Fabian Socialists almost 100 years ago.
The Arizona Debacle (Article) - 5/11/2010 8:00:35 AM
Excellent article. Thank you for your thoughtful analysis. I would also add that many of the pro-immigration groups, such as La Raza, are funded by the Ford Foundation and large, multi-national banks like Citibank. The agenda is globalization. The wealthy elite want to break America and create an American Union (like the EU) with open borders and a lower standard of living. The big corporations want open borders and endless pools of low-wage workers to exploit. By throwing a bag of goodies at these people when they unlawfully enter our country, they also then gain a major voting block with which to enact further policies to dissolve what was left of our Republic. I always ask the bleeding heart, propagandized liberal type the following question: Are you ready to willingly walk away from your job and give it to an illegal immigrant right here, right now? You might imgaine the answer.

This has been going on for far too long. The Bush administration did absolutely Nothing about it. The Obama administration will attempt to address the immigration reform issue but will be blocked by the Republicans in the same way they've stood unaminously against every single piece of legislation that is good for the U.S.
Good article Robert.
The Arizona Debacle (Article) - 5/8/2010 5:21:49 PM
I agree with you mostly, Robert. I am a resident of Phoenix and a Bronx New York native. What I see here in Phoenix are worse crimes than the rough and tumble Bronx! I do not like all of the aspects of the new Arizona immigration law, however any law is better than our federal governments stance. Which is indifference!
A very good writing by you,Sir.

Virginia lawmakers challenge “Obama-care” (Article) - 4/10/2010 11:33:33 AM

The Tea Party Movement; who are they, want do they want? (Article) - 4/8/2010 3:51:06 AM
Well said, Robert. The party for the “people” running this “phony government“ in Washington is coming to an end. This regime’s controlled media and the hateful propaganda it’s been trying to sell has been exposed by plain old common sense and self evident truth. The lies aren’t working anymore. It is clear to anyone that these good decent people are not extremists. They are no longer Tea Partiers, they are us, our neighbors. and our friends….They are The America People,and we are joining together to take back our government from the sneaky low life lying thieves who have stolen it.
An interesting exchange with a “Progressive colleague” (Article) - 4/1/2010 5:44:21 AM
What I find unsettling with my “friend”, is the total hypocrisy within his arguments, he equates the fact that percentage wise, there are few people of color within the Tea Party movement, so of course the movement most have a racial bias to it.
Again, it’s a slick trick of progressives and radical leftists (not necessarily liberals), to play that “race card”, obviously once you smear a person or a movement with that offensive comment, its difficult to get past it.
Even the likes of Congressman Charlie Rangel (of all people), made a foolish comment likening the Tea Party Movement, to his being “spat upon” in his early years within the Civil Rights Movement. Obviously, he’s revering to the incident in Washington that shows an elderly protester with his hands cupped around his mouth shouting at passing lawmakers, one of the lawmakers pauses a moment points his finger at the direction of the elderly protester, whips the side of his face, and continues walking by, a female police officer is directly at his side and witnesses the incident.
This video has been watched in slow motion, stopped, reversed and blown up countless times by every major news outlet in the country…it is totally inconclusive, no charges have been filed, and this lawmaker refuses to be interviewed my the media.
Yet, my progressive “friend” continues the slander…my only conclusion is that the radical left is in fear and will do anything in their power to stop this movement, they know that an engaged, informed and well read public is the most dangerous thing for any progressive to deal with.
An interesting exchange with a “Progressive colleague” (Article) - 3/31/2010 1:07:32 PM
Robert, progressives are really good at organizing societies. Especially when it comes to the part of creating death camps for the undesirables, and deciding on who exactly the undesirables are. They have a very simple core principle for making that determination….Simply put…Those who are not as smart as we are, and those who are smarter than we are, are not desirable in our society. If we don’t remove these people from the government as quickly as possible, I'm afraid “ See you at camp” is going to have a whole new meaning for our children,
Politicizing violence (Article) - 3/27/2010 4:06:09 AM
John, Mark, TRASK
Thanks for you comments…TRASK I’m not always sure what you’re saying, however you’re right about one thing…we’re definitely on our own, and I always appreciate you’re feedback.
John, thanks for the chuckle, I would imagine that the pitchforks shouldn’t be far behind, Obviously this is an extremely emotional time…our liberties are slowly being eroded…sadly one of the pitfalls in writing an opinion piece based on “factual” information is that ideologies on both sides of the political spectrum, at times have trouble with plain old fashion common sense, they’re so embedded in their own “stuff” that “truth” at times becomes a causality.
Mark, no matter what you write and how you phrase it, Joseph (with the register mark) will inevitably find away to blame Bush…the man has a one track mind, God love him, we need more of him…he amuses me.
Politicizing violence (Article) - 3/27/2010 1:56:58 AM
Good Article, Robert. May I ask… Is the Reichstag burning yet? The lame stream media is “reporting” that right wing christian terrorists are hanging around the capital building with books of matches…and there seems to be smoke coming out from under the doors of one of those close down meeting rooms. Say, do you think we should send some troops to the Polish border? Hey! It worked for Hitler, ya know..

Healthcare reform, the IRS, and YOU (Article) - 3/25/2010 1:12:46 AM
An IRSS- Internal Revenue Schutzstaffe isn't that nice. Will they be running the camps also or just rounding up der undafolk? Joseph is in another world. Alas, Don Q had his windmills, he's got his republicians. The problem is, in this world there are no democrats or republicans... only professional politicans... and they are the ones that are raping our Dulcinea.
Healthcare reform, the IRS, and YOU (Article) - 3/24/2010 12:25:14 PM
Good afternoon Joseph,
Sorry for the grammatical errors, and whatever misspelling you found, and you’re correct, I should have edited my article before publishing, however I was so excited when I heard that our good friends at the IRS were going to enforce Obama-care, that in my haste, I just had to let everyone know. Like that congressman who gushed to the media, that he was so “giddy” when Obama-care passed, that he couldn’t contain hemself.
Now grammatical errors aside, you asked me to prove what I’ve written…How DARE you question me!!!!
Sorry I’m just fooling with you, however with all due respect anyone that has a register mark after his name and does the Barry Obama bit and identifies himself as a symbol of a concept born and evolving from a shared perception… has more then a few other issues to deal with, then healthcare reform, and takes himself much much to seriously.
I mean I’m a serious guy, however I know who I am…grammatical errors and all I don’t hide behind a register mark and call myself TiAmo*…it’s just a little to pretentious don’t you think? My bio is there for all to see…no smoke and mirrors, just me.
Healthcare reform, the IRS, and YOU (Article) - 3/24/2010 8:49:30 AM
Regarding your rant: Are you willing to give up Social Security and MediCare? If so, just refuse the checks and send them back to the U.S. Government with a letter stating that you are against Social Programs.
You are making a false statement when you say "under this new healthcare mandate, you can’t just simply buy insurance on your own". If you have any evidence to support your claim, then why don't you provide it?
Do you really want to bring the U.S. Constitution into this? Americans' civil liberties were stolen by the Bush Administration. The Patriot Act gutted the first, third, fourth and fifth amendments to the U.S. Constitution and seriously damaged the seventh and the tenth. The Second Patriot Act reorganized the entire federal government as well as many areas of state government under the dictatorial control of the Justice Department, the Office of Homeland Security and the FEMA NORTHCOM military command. The Domestic Security Enhancement Act 2003 (aka the “Second Patriot Act”) is, by its very structure, the definition of dictatorship. The second Patriot Act is a mirror image of powers that Julius Caesar and Adolf Hitler gave themselves. I challenge you to study the Patriot Act and The Domestic Security Enhancement Act 2003 and compare them to the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence. These two “Patriot Acts” were a giant power-grab by George W. Bush with tentacles reaching into every facet of our society. They stripped American citizens of their rights and granted the government and its private agents total immunity. The Republicans, who had control of the House and Senate, let Bush get away with it.
Here's a simple question: Where were you when George W. Bush and the Republican neo-conservatives were expanding Big Government from 2000-2006, wasting billions of our dollars on tax cuts for the rich and on bogus wars?
Some literary criticism to help you improve your writing skills: If you want what you write to be taken seriously, you should edit for spelling and grammatical errors prior to publishing.
Finally, name-calling only demonstrates a low maturity level and I advise you to refrain from it in your future writings.
“There are no rules” (Article) - 3/23/2010 12:20:13 AM
He’s quite right. In a dictatorship the “government” makes their own rules any time they like.

Yes. Perhaps we do need to graduate from our studies in Love and Lust before we can be ready to enjoy a meaningful relationship and fully understand what Love is. Because the definition of Love is every bit as ellusive as that of Human Nature.

A Childhood Stolen (Poetry) - 3/20/2010 11:20:17 PM
Dear Bob, "A Childhood Stolen" is a very touching poem with an extremely worthwhile message. I just don't know if physical or mental abuse is more damaging. I and some of my friends growing up in Brooklyn suffered both. I read your bio and like you I was
the only member of my family to break away and get a degree. I now mentor college students and teach several courses. My 24 years in the US Air Force really helped me to reach my potential. My faith has helped me to exceed and go beyond what I thought I was capable of doing. I love the verse,"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." True Chistian faith is a mystery but it builds character and gives a person strength to go far beyond the boundries set up by man. There IS no limit to what man can do with God. Our father has all the answers. We just have to ask the right questions. Amen my friend.

A Childhood Stolen (Poetry) - 5/8/2009 4:54:34 AM
Too many children have been robbed of their childhood by "trusted" faces. I have written a number of poems on this very subject, as my own daughter was molested by her uncle "a trusted face". You have told a tragic tale in this one, and I felt every word!

Our “friendship” (Poetry) - 3/26/2009 10:45:33 PM
PERFECTLY said Tribute and this HAPPENS! WAy too often! OUR FEELINGS are exposed and you just know the spirit of a friend, and you get caught up and you share and you TRUST and more than anything YOU TRUST and you should, and risks are taken for US all to grow! Robert, you touched a place in my heart pretty deep this morning, I couldn't sleep - so glad I gravitated to your exquisite words! You have inspired my heart tonight/early this morning - I have to get up for work at 5:00A. and it's 2:42A. so bed is calling me!
Friendship arises from such a simple place! and the memories will linger (for some) FOREVER!
I always say and feel this and wrote a poem on it too, (must re-write/etc..I feel I should)
"THERE IS A REASON, SEASON or a LifeTime for Friendships" I will send it to you ~
What our heart captures from that meeting, for as long as it lasts and what is shared is always so momumental! This poem goes into that folder ( I said earlier reading a few other of your gems that sparkled) for me to re-read.

A Brief Encounter (Poetry) - 1/2/2009 1:14:52 PM
All of the brief encounters are engraved in our hearts and minds. The brief encounters added light and color to our days. I beleive that brief encounters can be sad when we have to say goodbye, but honestly, I am thankful for the encounters in my life. The flirtations and glances are warm memories.
Our “friendship” (Poetry) - 1/2/2009 1:12:35 PM
This is a beautiful and heartfelt tribute to friendship. I have started to read some of your works, and I want to tell you that you have touched my heart. Also, you have captured the essence of friendship perfectly. A friendship means simple times, such as sharing a smile, keeping promises and sharing the wine....my favorite part of your poem is at the end, when you mention that someday things may change and you will have to walk away. Although we have special friends his life, sometimes our friends move away, end up in love with someone else, or priorities change. Yet, we never forget the special bond we had with the person and how he or she helped us to grow in the right direction. That is a cherished memory forever. I absolutely love this poem. Please check out my authors den sometime, and let me know what you think of my stories and poems.

Lost my love by death, memories will always be with me, his spirit will be with me. A different loss than yours, but tremously felt and the hurt will linger long.
A tribute to my Lady, “Doc” (paw prints in the snow} (Poetry) - 3/16/2008 4:18:09 PM
It's heart-breaking to have to say good bye to a beloved friend...a wonderful poem to express that...I, too, love the paw print in the snow ending and I believe you'll be united in spirit.
At least you had her for 18 years -- our much loved German shepherd lived only for eight because of cancer induced doubtless by herbicides and bad drinking/tab water...
all the best,
A tribute to my Lady, “Doc” (paw prints in the snow} (Poetry) - 2/25/2008 9:38:29 PM
Oh how sorry I am and my heart reaches out to you and "Doc". Beautiful, heartwarming verse in dedication. Offering prayers from across the miles....
Be always safe,

You started me crying as well with this posting as I see your little girl and I think of my little boy, being 8 years old now and still around for alot longer I hope, but this poem says so much of your love for "doc"...check out the website I put below, it may give you some solace...She will always be in your hearts...Ed & Rufuz (w00f)

You've got me misty eyed now myself, my friend. Your Doc sounds like a truly marvelous friend, and I've lost some pretty marvelous ones myself.
May those pawprints live on in your heart and soul, forever.

I write of abuse and this is a very beautifully way of bringing abuse to your reader. Please read my poem "Meet Me Under The Willow Tree" when you have a moment. That is going to be the title of a book I am working on about childhood abuse. I find your work to touch my soul.
Thank you for sharing.
Peace, love, and light,

Although you went your seperate ways, you still have memories that are pleasing to you. Most people can't say that. Enjoyable read. Rhoda LI, NY
A Childhood Stolen (Poetry) - 8/20/2007 7:08:28 PM
Ooh? This prose is so profound for words to describe; really goes right to the heart. And it's not only the physical but also the emotional abuse that damages so many innocent lives. Thanks for sharing. My best, Gloria

Wow, powerful and with vivid imagery. I found your poem passionate with a stylistic flavor, which reaps a unique rhythm. Yet, I feel you can condense it not to lose anything but make it better.
Memories (Poetry) - 5/2/2007 9:29:16 PM
Such a beautiful write, so delicately penned. Memories have a way of fading over time and yes, a word, a gesture, a song can trigger that little spark all over again!

You have taken my breath away, Robert. Phenomenal job.

Hello my old friend,
This is a wonderful poem.
Hope all is well with you and yours.
A Childhood Stolen (Poetry) - 2/20/2007 12:13:45 PM
Powerful write that opens your mind to look at those around you. This seems to be a lot of this going on around us. My kids are my life and come first. I think that is a lesson that needs to be learned by many.
Thanks for sharing and hopefully this will open kids eyes to talk to someone who can help them.

This poem is POWERFUL! I also write for the abused children. This poem touches me deeply. So many of our abused children of the world are afraid to speak out for themselves. WE have to be their voice. Thank you for sharing this awesome poem, Robert. Outstanding write!
Blessings to you,
A Childhood Stolen (Poetry) - 2/15/2007 9:06:38 PM

What a poem! Our "friendship", touches places not too many do!
I have enjoyed reading this!
"...this bond my be tested and
we’ll need to walk away,
and if that accrues
please let it be known
it's because of our friendship,
and the fact that we've grown"
This is the truest way to accept the frienships that have to go, some forever, some for just awhile!
Love and Peace~
A Brief Encounter (Poetry) - 7/26/2006 8:59:57 AM
Hi Amo! This is a lovely poem. To quote you, "and while we seldom speak now, I’m sure you know, you’ll always be a special…“friend”. Hope all is going well with you cause I sure miss our conversations on the "board."

And while this bond that we share
Is relatively new, a friendship like
ours, is shared by a few
..how true..so few have the privelage of having such a friendship..one that can birth true love..I like the flow of this piece..and the smoothness...saved it! Thankyou Robert

My grandfather was named Robert, but I've never forgiven him for breaking my grandmother's heart. Haha!

This is so sweet - sometimes age cannot be a factor. What am I saying - age should NEVER be a factor. This has the melody of eternal intimacy.

Very nice sentiments, and indubitably true as well. Those who don't have a friend like that can envy you. It might even prompt somebody to go out and find one.
