(Something I believe firmly that I myself wrote years ago now on a famous facebook group yay! Change the world! )

As long as you believe in an external world, as long as
you trust that politicians have the power to govern your outer life
and religions to put order in your inner one, you will be deeply
disappointed. ...See the world as it is - a simultaneous creation of
your inner being. According to your inner states and conditions, the
world appears and disappears at will, and can beco...

Yesterday evening I attended a discussion at Conway Hall entitled “The EU Referendum: What Happens Next?” #ConwayHallEU organised by #LondonThinks.  It is the first political meeting I’ve attended since I was a student in the 1980s.  Shame on me!  You can watch it all at

The panel was chaired by Guy Foster from Brewin Dolphin (a large stockbroker company in the city) and comprised Matthew Goodwin (Professor of Politics in the Sc...

Remember when Liberals were all about questioning authority, ant-censorship and free speech?  Now if you question our government you are racist. Events in history are being erased (censored) in the name of political correctness (take the case of ESPN cutting out Curt Schillings game play from broadcast).  The new wave Liberals need safe spaces to protect them from speech they don't like.

I guess I'm old but people saying things has never scared me.  Now the thought of n...
12/03/2016: So...  WHO spent the most $ (2 to 1)?  WHO was elected anyway?  Do I have to say it?  ITYS

And, to be fair, I figured that the election was probably in the bag for Clinton, anyway, regardless of funding, but the funding issue clearly did not make a difference.  Trump could probably have spent a lot less and Hillary a lot more without changing the results.  So, will all the experts who rake in the big bucks to help poor hapless politicia...

01/24/2016   What a NIGHTMARE!  If Medicare, Blue Shield, and Anthem/Blue Cross are examples of our future, then good bye, homo-sap.  I have spent averaging two hours...

I suppose I should be happy.   More to do to set the world straight, right?   Except that this one is a doozy, a  potentially Sisyphean task, tail-eating and self-referential like I can har...

 Liberals generally are horrified when a guy on deathrow finally has his sentence carried out after 35 years, but when infants that can live outside the womb are being extracted in a, "less crunchy" manner to preserve body parts for sale, they find it perfectly acceptable? If we don't protect the weakest among us then we have no civil society.

Fools too often don't know they're foolish until it's too late.
Q:  Is the U.S. medical system capable of dealing with ebola?  You be the judge:

About a month ago, when I asked a local upper level librarian about what he knew regarding ebola, and whether anyone at the library might be interested in doing a presentation that could cover emergencies such as Earthquake or Ebola, going over standard heath measures and preparations - water storage, emergency services, etc., his response was that anyone in the U.S. who was afraid of ebola wa...

How to deal with the aftermath

February 28th, 2016

In the wake of the near panic over Zika, a few voices have noted  that dengue and several other deadly viruses are carried by the same group of people-loving mosquitos, species that have hitched rides to new locales, such as the southern U.S. and now Hawaii.&n...

(Just a note about my category choice today:  I am choosing politics and under that, current events becuz first off I am a government of one with millions to rule inside this little country and these are current events in the government.)


Okiez body cells, which one of you started the fucked up mess that had me undergoing yet another manmade machine squeeze the boobage til it screams test?!!


Never mind that some freak evidently does not mind going to work at 7am to...
To: CityCouncil@tustinca.orgThanks for your attention to this matter.

In brief, the Tustin library has become increasingly unusable for legitimate pusposes, due to the failure to address the problems of various noises making it impossible to concentrate on any serious research. 

Along with the noise issues, there has been a slowly increasing level of related problems, associated largely with the concentration of homeless with obvious mental problems who nevertheless hang on to every ...
What immediately follows is my own take on the discussion concerning problems with licensing more bars or liquor outlets in downtown Santa Ana, in the face of known problems of public drunkeness, under-age drinking and a history of related problems.

People drink because they are in pain or dealing with stress. This "solution" (no pun intended) can work on an occasional or low level - 1-2 drinks per day - but tends to perpetuate the problems, especially when multiple drinks are involved. We kn...

Its all starting to unravel for Obama. Its just going to cascade into one big avalanche for the administration all at once. Benghazi, Fast and Furious, barricading veteran memorials, more than 500 million for the website, more than 500 million for Solyndra, 51 vote party line budget gimmick at midnight Christmas eve to change our nations healthcare, the failed stimulus payoff, using the IRS as Brownshirts to attack Tea party conservatives with audits and delays of tax exempt statu...

I haven't written here for quite a while, but I think that I made it up for in the length of this article. If you are interested enough, you can follow the link to my website for a PDF copy.

I have been having a debate with my friend Jack (shout out!) about the proper way to view Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning. Both young men came into contact with secrets that they felt obligated, for whatever reason, to reveal.  Whether you consider them heroes, traitors or something in the mid...
