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 news leads one to believe that soon there will be more refugees than settled citizens in any of our nations.

Global Edition of the NY Times Highlights Western Art

August 22nd, 2013, No Comments

I’m reading Ha’aretz, the Israeli version of this publication that that keeps me up to date in my travels outside the USA. Leg swelling and fatigue (from CFIDS and other conditions), brought me back to the quietest area in Israel called Judea (see my earlier post on Masada). This edition reprinted an article from the […]

My Favorite Prescription Drug

August 7th, 2013, 1 Comment

An article in the Huffington Post today, agrees with a suggestion made by my doctor some years ago. Deficient in magnesium and some other nutrients due to my dietary limitations following toxic injury, he informed me that dark chocolate offers some of those nutrients and might help with leg cramping. Who am I to argue […]

New on Bee Colony Collapse

July 29th, 2013, No Comments

The L.A. Times is reporting that 35 different pesticides have been found in pollen which contribute heavily to the disruption of the natural immune system of bees. The list is impressive and, as always, this blogger advises readers to test their own homes and offices for pesticide residues or other suspicious toxicants. Reduce your risk […]

Getting Ready To Publish a Book

July 23rd, 2013, No Comments

I’ve written a novel in a series entitled, “The Escargot Series”. The first two novellas will be published together and a third will follow shortly thereafter. In order, these are, “Escargot to Go”; “Escargot Gone”; and “Escargot a la Carte”. The publisher is ready but the author is still working toward registering the start-up company […]

July 18th, 2013, No Comments

Once again, we see schoolchildren victimized by the appearance of pesticide contamination in or around schools. This time, it was attributed to the luncheon served at a school in India as per this Reuter’s brief. I’ve already pointed out the results of pesticide poisoning as it affects schools in New York City (my own law […]
