Your Money AND Your Life – Israel

April 16th, 2015, No Comments

My first visit to Israel was two years ago where I was thrilled to meet many other visitors from places I’d never been in Europe and Asia. Fortunately, good manners among the young have declined so I was able to hear their sincere views about Jews in general. The advantage was our ability to speak […]

Dear Bill Maher, Isn’t Humanism Also a Religion?

April 12th, 2015, No Comments

Dear Mr. Maher, Thank you, along with many other comedic pundits who have helped so many of us laugh in understanding over the years. Tonight, I’m writing to look into your opinions about humanism, as opposed to religion. I truly enjoy your pokes at ‘dogmatism’ but also believe that to be a characteristic of humanists […]

TRUTH AND CONSEQUENCES: The Power of Words

December 30th, 2013, No Comments

This post isn’t intended to toot my own horn. It happened awhile ago but will hopefully address an issue I’ve run into numerous times in my travels. Meeting many along the way, there were some who felt afraid to converse about politics and educational freedoms for reasons they didn’t confide. So, here’s testimony to the […]

The Sure Heart – Reflections Upon the Medicare System

October 28th, 2013, No Comments

The USA has a very important system of support for Americans who have long believed that we must live beyond our sixty-plus hour work-weeks in order to actually enjoy retirement. It is truly at the heart of any discussion of our work habits. While US citizens are among the hardest working individuals in the western […]

Home School for Home Rule

October 1st, 2013, No Comments

Along the scale of political viewpoints, I firmly believe in taking things issue by issue, using the constitution as the ‘midline’ point. After all, you can’t get too far to the left or right without falling afoul of the Supreme Court. True, the context of a legislative question or life decision may change from one […]

Anti-Semitism in Israel

September 9th, 2013, No Comments

It is with the greatest disgust that I report upon the futility of public educational systems which continue to graduate ignorance in the form of anti-Semitic adults. People who have never even met a Jewish person are visiting Israel and professing our great, good fortune that Jews ‘run the world’. I kid you not! Always […]

The MYSTERY of SIM CARDS for MOBILES in the EU

December 9th, 2012, No Comments

Has anyone ever penetrated the ‘MYS’tery surrounding that bizarre byte of technology called the SIM card? The complexity of the technology behind those bits of cardboard is only second to the perplexing contractual obligations that accompany them in the EU! I’m developing a novel phobia which I’ll name ‘symphonia’ or fear of phony, but binding, […]

Redefining Capitalism- No Need!

April 22nd, 2011, No Comments

Paul Krugman’s column today is precisely the answer to our dogmatic allegiance to the word, “Capitalism”. When George W. Bush referred to us all as consumers, rather than citizens, it communicated the concept that our status had changed as residents. In addition, every single product and service in existence was somehow a commodity for purchase […]

Yes, Virginia. There Are Economic Realities (Krugman and the SCOTUS)

January 31st, 2011, No Comments

Nobel prize-winning economist Professor Paul Krugman wrote his opinion of where the President might take the theme of his State of the Union address. The theme of concern was “competitiveness”. The column was of particular interest to me because my entire life was disrupted by a myth that we practiced capitalism in this country even […]
