united david dao excessive force situation + the US police state

Posted on April 13, 2017 at 3:00pm 3 Comments

hi all, it was not a pretty picture (to say the least, honestly, it was outrageous) with bloody david dao dragged off an airplane in full view of social media. he is said to have concussion, lost teeth, and needed surgery. united refunded all passengers. the airline released a statement about "reaccommodating" the passengers. it looks like our entire country got "reaccommodated" the last decade or so esp after 911. and isnt it "fortunate" for us all some passengers were around to film the…

did you ever have that dream where you were…

state of War 2016 Q4

Posted on December 8, 2016 at 3:00pm 2 Comments

hi all. it is semifamously said "war is the health of the state". so instead of a State of the Union address to the country, maybe a more candid president might delineate the State of the War(s).

war is hell! did not imagine years ago on entering adulthood that maybe the majority of my middleaged life would involve the US at war.

and it is definitely not Tis the Season to talk about world war. so while others are zigging, here there will be zagging. just chalk it up to that…
