April 21, 2011 What's a little fallout, heh? Fukushima and ThunderdomeLike myself, I am sure many other people older than the 20 - 30 somethings have more than once been reminded of the Mad Max movies and Thunderdome during recent events and the threat of radiation spreading over the globe. Why wouldn't one think of Mel Gibson and Tina Turner and the antics of Master Blaster in Bartertown at a time like this? Especially Thunderdome. The image is familiar, somehow.Click here.
February 23, 2011 Remember The Alamo! ...and the people who fought there.What touches me about the Alamo defenders is who they were. It wasn't just Davey Crockett and Jim Bowie. Examining the names and the places those people traveled from to join the fight takes one back to a mindset that seems rare today. Check out some of the names, did you expect an Esparza or Fuentes or the Black Freedman, John? The idea was that the PEOPLE of Texas were fighting for their independence. Race didn't matter, age didn't matter, religion didn't matter, cultural heritage didn't matter, where one came from didn't matter. Click here.

March 16, 2010 - Census 2010 - The Trademark of the BeastThe ever intriguing Jim Kirwan posted an article on March 16, 2010 on rense.com entitled "Owning The 'United States®'". Then, a great follow up "Round Two - Who Owns This Country?" The first article referred to the trademark symbol that appears with the logo on the envelope in which the 2010 U.S. Census form is contained. This piqued my curiosity about the logo itself, and the fact that it is trademarked. I thought I'd look into it a bit.Click here.
December 18, 2009 - It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like.... ??? (It's CHRISTMAS, stupid!)Why is this nation freaking out over the use of the word "Christmas" in "holiday" related language? People use "Merry Christmas" to recognize the important and popular holiday all over the world, and have for centuries. But, lately, America is freaking out!! Even Macy's removed Christmas from it's gift guide and asks its customer to believe. Huh? Believe in what, Santa Claus...Black Friday?Click here.

It's especially hard dealing with narcissists and other sociopaths. They can be very charming, as a verb, not an adjective. Since their main goal is to get what they want from someone, they at first say and do all the "right" things. They crank up the Mask, put on the show, and it works, for a while. The old saying about if it seems too good to be true, it probably is...that is what happens in the beginning. It is often the first red flag indicating something is just not right about the whole thing. Click here,
March 21, 2009 - Lucky Larry Silverstein Wants MORE - $4.55 Billion Not Enough!In case you don't remember, he's the big time New York PRIVATE "developer" who got the $2 billion dollar settlement from insurance claims arising from the destruction of the World Trade Center. The largest settlement in US regulatory history, bringing his total take from the insurance claims to $4.55 billion. He got that money in May of 2007. I know, I know, things have gotten more expensive since 2007, but come on! You can't make $4.55 billion work for you, Larry? You have to come to US for MORE? Why do you think that's even an option? Just because you are rebulding the World Trade Center, doesn't mean someone else has to pay for it. Who does this guy think he is? Click here.
