The U.S. is on "The Hero's Journey"

When the U.S. faced the recent election, most people saw it as just an election. I saw it as the start of The Hero's Journey. I was on pins and needles as I waited for the outcome of the election! The hero's journey is a journey that involves: 1. Making a choice – either knowingly or inadvertentl...

People Voted for Change in Government...Not in the Electoral College!!

People are pushing the idea of removing the Electoral College!?! IMHO this is a very bad idea. The Electoral College was formed with an eye to preventing any possibility of groups of states with selfish regional interests from ganging up on smaller states or states far away from their problems a...

Ideology and Idiotology

I have concluded that we do not have an ideology, we have an idiotology. Ideology is defined as:  "A system of ideas and ideals, especially one that forms the basis of economic or political theory and policy.." According to Louis Althusser, ideology "can be described as a set of conscious and un...

The Rise of Corporations

Years ago I was visited by a group of little men in brown Robes. They showed me lots of things about the future. One of the things I saw when with them was the break-up of nations. I found this hard to take in and I expected it would be a rather messy process, but it seemed to proceed in a way th...

Our Predicament

At this point in time, I am quite excited about our world even though I have some concerns about the U.S. The world is definitely changing, but none of those changes are being reported in the U.S. Instead, we have the steady diet of propaganda and the presentation of seriously biased information ...

Thought for Monday, 5/5/2014

I used to wonder why the German people didn't do something about Hitler. I often asked myself, "How could they have gone along with what he was doing? Couldn't they see what he was doing?" Now I know. They didn't know what was going on. They didn't get any truthful news or perspectives on what w...

Can You See Where the U.S. Is Headed?

It is happening in Syria, in Egypt, Libya, Sudan, the Central African Republic, Venezuela, Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq, Ethiopia, Somalia, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, Malaysia, the U.S.S.R., Greece, Crete, Ukraine, and lots of other places. What’s happening is the intervention of “hidden forces” that ar...

George W

As many of my family and friends know, I was seriously upset by the 9/11 bombings of the trade center in New York, and I was NOT in favor of the war in Iraq. I knew the “weapons of mass destruction” claim was fabricated, and I was insulted by U.S. President George W. Bush’s statement:  "Either yo...

Mobile Phone Hacking

I see that the trial of a half-dozen people for hacking into mobile phone messages is close to the end of the Prosecution side of the case. I wonder why these six people are being prosecuted for listening in to phone messages when the NSA and its accomplices are doing the same thing. Not only tha...

CNN and the 2014 Winter Olympics

I don’t listen to CNN very often, and when I do I am always dismayed. Their reports of the opening of the Olympic games in Sochi was truly saddening. I hope no one in Russia or elsewhere in the world was taking the CNN reports to heart. Everything in it was designed to be a subtle insult to Russi...

Financial and Political Prostitution

It is so easy to see through the U.S. government tactics. Their entire interest is in building relationships…but not the kind anyone wants. They’re buying agreement and power. That’s about as successful in the long run as trying to buy love and sex. In this case, the U.S. is promising Afghanista...
