before and after

May 18, 2011
Before and After. Questioning the wisdom of civilization. Here we have the forest, yet... A bigger and better grocery store would be great... 
yet... I like the forest... OH, what a tricky question... Well, we HAVE plenty of forest, Don't we?

Our Economy is starting to recover...

Civilization Coming soon.

MD: Until we put in policies that are conducive to an economic recovery, we will not have an economic recovery. Out unemployment will hover 
around the 9 to 10 % range for the forseeable future. I said this at the start of the recession, and so far I have been right. Sure, we will 
see spurts of recovery and Obama will try to make us believe there will be a recovery because of the election, but there will be no robust 
recovery needed to get this economy going.

Of Course, the obvious way to reduce unemployment is to RESET the social security retirement age to 55. Get the entire baby boom generation 
OUT of the work force. Let the NEXT generation have a chance.

OR, we could use come Comic Relief...

What a blessing to have a calendar at work that reminds me when to go out and experience reality.

Ron Paul for President 2012

April 25, 2011

I voted for Obama but will not do so again. I’m not happy with all these wars… The USA  has invaded Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Supposedly, the war in Iraq is over yet thousands of American soldiers remain…

I believe Ron Paul would do a better job…

NO NUKES Send a message to President Obama.

Know Nukes Unclean Unsafe

Depleted Uranium has a half life of 4.5 Billion Years and must be guarded the entire time. If an ‘Errorist stole Used Nuclear Fuel they could make a “Dirty Bomb”.  A “dirty bomb” uses conventional explosives to distribute radioactive debris over a wide area… ANYONE could create such a device in the comfort of their own home.  Imagine the cost of employing security guards to watch the radioactive waste…

Mom told me…

“It won’t kill you to ride the BUS…”

And she was right! I rode the bus and did not die…

So here I am years later… During the last year the price of gas just went sky high and I got angry. It all seemed to be an artificial squeeze on the general public by the super rich and so I decided to just say no. I find that it is possible for me to get to work and back with a single bus ride. That makes it a practical alternative to driving my own car. There were some unexpected blessings. First, there is a great sense of relief when I get on the bus. I feel at that instant that I am not the responsible adult. Someone else is the responsible adult. If there is a bus crash, so what! It’s not my fault. If I was driving, I am the person that has to pay attention. I am the person that is in charge of listening to the engine for strange sounds… and so on and so on…. When I drive, I am constantly alert and looking for other drivers that could crash into me. So, as a bus rider, I am able to close my eyes and dream or plan art projects or compose lyrics… total freedom… for 45 minutes… also, I get to cruise by the boats at Eureka’s harbor and admire them… also, I get to chat with my fellow riders or evesdrop on their conversations. It introduced me to a totally different class of people and their world. Expanding my horizons…

“The bus came by and I got on,

That’s when it all began…

There was cowboy Neil, at the wheel,

Of a bus to never-never land” -Jerry Garcia

I almost always sing the song when I see the bus arriving… This was one of the Grateful Dead’s Best songs… called “The Other One” It featured about one minute of lyrics and 30 minutes of abstract jazz/space/drums/crazy noise… OH YEAH! It sings of Cowboy Neil Cassidy driving Ken Kesey’s magic bus named “Furthur”

So, get on the bus…

The Beatles took a Magical Mystery Tour on a bus and so did The Who…
