Bio
Humorous artist shopping various graphic platforms and strategies for technical and design potential; My interest is in the 20th Century tradition of "gag" or magazine cartooning, also referred to as editorial illustration. Still, I cannot apologize for the liberal education received before my career. Currently using Federal benefits and personal skills living in a small New England city(town) full of retired obese white men and their impaired relatives. Separated from BMW and F-150 America by using subsidized transit, I offer either two cents or Nine Scents on a variety of subjects.

I'm Sharing

Alongside my monthly paper bank statement, delivered by the Post Office, was a piece of paper. There are always inserts with any business mail and everyone's first impulse is to throw it. But what caught my eye was the lack of any pictures and the words "Personal Information". So I read… Read full post »

Think Like the Republican

Why shouldn't our military become like the corrupt aristocracies it seeks to assist throughout the world?

Oh Dear!!! Bagdad, that jewel of Western Civilization, is about to fall!! Quick, everyone in the Beltway loose their minds! Start the blame games, get the talking heads out of bed, and don't… Read full post »

Arizona Dogmatism

There is nothing new about the language passed by the Arizona Legislature as a remedy for social tolerance. In terms of the history of human civilization, rulers have always sought to establish the supremacy of spiritual beings over the lives of their subjects. The most extreme example is h… Read full post »

Rattlesnake Nation

Have you seen that show on Animal Planet? I'm not a naturalist or a "nature lover" but the humans are so cool. The star seems to be a ZZ Top look-alike who claims to be able to smell reptiles. No indication if they can smell him; Also no indication if the… Read full post »

This post started as an attempt to deal with a war of choice in Syria. Time frame: Shortly after Labor Day when there was only the United States Military to deal with the Assad Regime. Now the President has put the Leader of the Russian Nation (Putin's official title here) in… Read full post »

The Power of Nonviolence

"What We Honor Today...."

I watched the ceremonies in Washington and Boston for too little time; I had told myself that it would be "old" and something that was not needed. Now I wish I had seen some of the actual movement veterans speak-I'd like to know they missed a part… Read full post »

Case Study in Perfectionism

Did you miss it? Or did someone just say "oh, happens all the time...." or maybe "There you go again."?

Social Perfectionism

Introduction 

This essay does not spring from some "senior" interest in moral upgrades or spiritual destinations; It has been pressing up my to-do list since the phrase "The New Normal" became an irritant in my brain bucket. Daily respectable pundits describe economics, politics&n… Read full post »

The 3,000 day Probation

Why do Republicans maintain their choke hold on Federal economic aid? Through their control of the House of Representatives. How were many radical Tea Party members able to get reelected in what should have been a landslide on the coattails of President Obama? Because state legislatures reapportioned… Read full post »

The "Big European Bubble Chamber"

Are there any positive results from the Rominee's financial shenanigans?

I love the original Star Wars flicks; not for the content but the episode titles, implying a never-ending, even aggravating, storyline; So the benefits for lefties as his campaign struggles with his verbal acrobatics. How a… Read full post »

This post is about election strategy and "positive message"; These are learned ideas held by many Americans that translate into Republican "programs". I believe they can be talked about in political language that would be accessible to most Americans.

Let me start by praising Glenn Greenwald for keeping the Iran crisis on Salon's front page.  The United States is on the verge of waging war against another Islamic tribal society thousands of miles from our borders; When Likud attacks, the Iranian military will see our hand.

Will a Republican pardon the Gitmo 171?

Check out Haley Barbour; Whatever happened to the Party of Law and Order (Sometimes known as "lawnorder")?

After exhaustive biographical study - the first Wikipedia bio found - the former governor does not seem to be a Fundamental Christian Cultist. Unlike the Ricks or, for that matter, Romney; So th… Read full post »

Lower the Social Security Retirement Age

So we want to "Go Big"??? 

I propose removing a large number of bodies from the labor market, allowing the "unemployment" number published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics to fall.; It seems pretty easy to put the rate wherever we want it, say 5%. First a brief look back, then… Read full post »

Proposal

This essay argues that the Congress of the United States no longer meet in Washington, DC. All citizens of our nation see that face-to-face legislation is no longer working as a process - Meaningful results cannot be obtained over any partisan perspective.
