  13. Beyond Gun Control (4/23/2013) - I’m more than willing to go down the road that most gun control advocates pave. There is no doubt it saves lives when some insane or severely damaged person decides to kill. With this in mind, now lets bootstrap these efforts with simultaneous actions of governance, child rearing, education, healthcare, and fail these, incarceration that […]

  20. Category Intro: Jefferson Project (9/1/2011) - These are keystone ideas and principles of Thomas Jefferson. Why this project? As a young child of Washington, DC, the writings of “the man in that beautiful round building” always intrigued me.

  23. Consider Evolution of Governance (4/26/2013) - An enlightened citizenry once agreed that Kings, Queens and Lords were an archaic form of governance. Today, we surely have the courage to agree that a Republic governed by statist, aristocratic Congressional Representatives is now equally archaic. Like the single shot revolver and horses of their time, Congress is an inadequate, old tool. We know […]

  26. False Democracy (4/23/2013) - When will our society/community opens its eyes and see that concentrated wealth and concentrated political power are a two headed snake with one just as dangerous and onerous as the other.

  28. Generational Reflections (4/23/2013) - One of those days in life you pause and reflect. We attended the memorial of my Aunt Donna Jean this last Sunday. She is my father’s younger sister.

  34. Imaging Studies are Essential (8/15/2011) - Comment Bubble … Venogram tests, or the equivalent are essential for diagnosing Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome At one point in my medical care doctors recommended my varicose veins be stripped.  This surgery would reduce the number of stasis ulcers I was having.  Fortunately for me, I personally paid for a consult with doctors at Scripps’ La Jolla Medical Clinic.  Yes….

  36. It’s not about Money, it’s about Power! (10/19/2011) - Comment Bubble Wake up America!  Power concentrated, whether by money or political favor, is suspect.  Politicians with unchecked or long-term power are perverted.  Money along with power is irrepressible.  Politicians in pursuit of money aren’t representing you, they’re chasing ego.  The so-called “Right” and “Left” are blowing smoke up your collective butts.  They’re Parties without […]
  37. Jefferson Pushes Imancipation of Slaves Prior To US Constitution (10/14/2011) - Comment Bubble I’m reading Thomas Jefferson’s Memoirs for no other reason than I have always liked what I heard of him.  So why not read him in his own words, although reading 18th Century English is surely a challenge.
