‘Ultra Nationalism’ – An Oxymoron for the Ages

December 28th, 2014, No Comments

To tell you the truth, I’m sick and tired of watching the equivalent of present-day Nazis hide behind the ridiculous label of “ultra-nationalism’. A person claiming to advocate nationalism from the point of view of a given group is promoting the framer’s view of their identity. Reform efforts still fall within boundaries intended by 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 […]

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 […]

What’s Current in Environmental Issues Today?

July 15th, 2013, No Comments

I’m nursing a back injury today but wanted to let readers know where you can find up to date news on environmental tragedies, crimes and potential upgrades in these areas of our universal interest. http://www.environmentalhealthnews.org/ I’ve been using this website for years to monitor important points in this increasingly dangerous world of pollution, largely preventable […]

The Other Side of Wrong

May 26th, 2013, No Comments

My travels have progressed rather slowly due to health issues and a fixed income schedule which determines when moving on is practical. The benefits have been undeniable. I’ve viewed the natural wonders of incredibly diverse landscapes and climates. Even more satisfying has been the swell of intense admiration evoked by the sight of so many […]

Attitudes about Government in and out of China

February 14th, 2013, 1 Comment

I read an article the other day about a blogger said to have taken rare photographs of the President elect of China, Xi Ping. I have been unable to find that original article but the Washington Post notes it here. The lines which caught my eye in the other article spoke of how the blogger […]

The Refugee Within

December 26th, 2012, No Comments

Here in the UK, the news has been full of reports about the school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut. I’ve worked in many New York City school programs and experienced my share of bomb threats along with occasional intrusions by unstable individuals. Still, when working my very first teaching job in Connecticut back in 1979, the […]

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, […]

Cintas, The Uniform People becoming the Uniform Cities?

November 6th, 2012, No Comments

While driving around the USA, I came across many trucks with this sign on it advertising hotel linens and other services. The title, “The Uniform People” startled me as it seemed to represent something quite troubling. Uniformity is the enemy of individuality and cultural preservation across states and nations. Zoning laws seem to be increasingly […]

Political Fever in Greece

November 6th, 2012, No Comments

I’m down with a fever and other maladies from an excess of enthusiasm by private demonstrators using spray cans holding materials you’d rather not inquire into very closely. In the mean time, I’ve been listening to the other forms of fever in this ancestral home of republics. The predictions and endorsements are all in, favoring […]
