A Definition of Terms

 

I start out with the adjective “Non-Violent” as a descriptive of a philosophy of life.

What does it mean to be “Non-Violent?”

 I can’t define the term from personal knowledge.

I am not “Non-Violent”

 This does not mean that I am therefore “Violent” or an advocate of  “Violence”

It means I am aware of the possibility of violence and I do not exclude it from the means…

Regulation Is Good For Business

originally published on Open Salon on May 29, 2010

A lot of economists and business people will tell you that regulation is the enemy of business, that a free market left alone functions optimally and that government invariably screws it up - the more regulation, the worse.  According to this model, the private sector is inherently efficient while government is inherently inefficient. In an awful lot of circles, this is dogma, accepted as truth by definition.

 It is…

Why are you so concerned about illegal immigration?

Moved from Open Salon on March 16, 2015

A couple of weeks ago, an online friend forwarded me an e-mail stating that Bank of America and Wells Fargo were offering low-limit credit cards to illegal aliens (without SS numbers) and that we should boycott those banks for this reason. I disagreed and replied with an e-mail entitled "Why Are You So Concerned With Illegal Immigration?" After reading her reaction, I realized I was kind of proud…

Time Less Dreams

It is interesting to come to the point in your life where you remember more than you do-
But you can do and redo in your mind
in your dreams

And Heaven is Timeless Dreams
And Hell is Time, less Dreams

And wisdom is often in knowing when NOT to pause
But plunge on in the daily experience of eternity
