Have you heard about the latest threat to our democracy?
It’s not some dictator in some country most Americans can’t find on a map, a dictator put into power by the CIA.
It’s not weapons of mass destruction in some oil-rich country. Or even a runaway chunk of space rock that’s about to blow us to smithereens or send us into a new ice age.
It’s people of the “wrong” gender using our bathrooms, violating our sacred trust in…Continue

Is this political season wacky or what ?
A little exaggerating about accomplishments, lofty goals that cannot be achieved, and tales of who knows who and how that will help or hinder is to be expected. Grandma called it prevaricating. You were not supposed to do it but a firestorm eternity wasn't the likely…Continue

there is an old buddhist saying. "like the sun and the moon, the truth cannot be long hidden". my zen question, what is "long"? how about ~1½ decade or so since 911?
havent blogged on conspiracy theory in quite awhile, and even longer on 911 (after years of blogging on it), but yesterdays conspiracy can turn into todays political controversy/ firestorm. events in this area somehow went from comatose to fast-paced/ dizzying in just a few days. will the momentum continue, or dissipate…Continue
It's a good day to take a break.
I'm thinking of politics, and the rancor spreading.
To my way of thinking the discussion has become needlessly bitter, filled with conjecture and accusations, superfluous absolutism and mighty imaginations.
That's just here.
In the real world, it's compounded by face to face disagreements, workplace angst and an overall sense of battle.
It could be a time to come together.
The truth is, I'm not going to do…Continue

Millard Fillmore was born in Moravia New York in on January 7th, 1800.
