Air Force brat. My dad was shepherd to a bunch of B-52's; the GI's called that place "20 Minutes From Armageddon;" because a missile launched in East Germany would pop over our heads twenty minutes later. That put me in some of the best schools anywhere.
I wrote in the Press Office of a powerful, charismatic Midwestern Governor.
I dabble in graphic arts. My 50+ entertainment sites get a few million visits, and I have stopped counting the fans, likes, and shares, per year.
I've rambled the world, hitched around the continent (counter-clockwise). Climbed a couple of teeners, been to a couple of thousand rock, blues, and jazz concerts. I was at a free concert on Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, CA with about 350,000 freaks and hippies; and other festivals.
I won a writing contest when I was six. It was a Poe-like horror story taken from an account of a mining disaster. I had already been reading Edgar Allan Poe (which may explain a lot). I could read before I could talk.
I implemented some of the first client/server, TCP-IP networks (the Internet) at many of the world's largest corporations. I know a half-dozen programming languages, and have implemented and administered many network operating systems.
Right now I build ebikes, and lithium batteries from scratch.
I was taught that race and ethnicity don't set us apart.
I think that the best thing that could happen in this country would be if a woman were to be elected President of the United States. I admire President Obama more than any man in history, save one.
"Global Warming," as a legislative human rights issue, is about owning the sources of the energy we use. Global warming, as an environmental issue, is largely incomprehensible and made overwhelmingly so by the professional disinformers.
ICE and the D.A. endangered small children, after planning for months, and never thought of the safety or welfare of the kids that would obviously be traumatized and left without care providers! Whether or not the District Attorney had a valid legal goal or purpose; they behaved monstrously to attempt to achieve it.
Racism is a rampant disease, that the Republican Party and Trump intend to use as a wedge to tear this country apart; to "bust it out" and burn it down, to end the experiment, America. And Donald Trump would love to light the match.
A war is being waged against us; a real war effectuated by the slaughtering of unarmed civilians by heavily armed ultra-extremist sociopaths supported by the Republican Party and the lobbyists bought and owned by the gun industry.
Did Moscow Mitch Give Away The Play? Who can kill investigations or oversight, quite literally with a wave of his hand? Even when the investigation, or investigations, looks at his own possible criminal malfeasance and abuse of power? Moscow Mitch.
