Steppenwolf

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.

The 2020 Elections: A Time of Change And Decision

This election is about who we are as a people, and who we want to be. We have reached a crossroads, and we have to decide who we are.

Is This Our Last Chance To Impeach Trump?

If Congress can't and doesn't, impeach Trump now then how logical or reasonable is it to think that a lesser court can try and punish him? And when is that likely to happen?

Is America Racist?

Racialism excludes, but racism segregates. Racialism is a personal decision. Racism is political. Racialism serves no practical purpose. Racism, in the hands of a demagogue, can control the fates of nations and the lives of millions.

Jeffrey Epstein’s “A” List

Jeffrey Epstein had a little black book filled with the names and personal phone numbers of some of the world’s wealthiest and most influential people, from Bill Clinton and Donald Trump to actors, actresses, scientists and business tycoons.

The Indiana Two Step

If we invoke the 25th. Amendment, Mike Pence instantly becomes President. If someone employs the more Shakespearean solution - same result. With Trump, it all came down to "competence." He had none. But, Mike Pence does. He is a thousand times more dangerous than Trump. He wants a one-party theocracy.

Plutocratic Rot

If we can't believe that the judiciary is honest, then how can we be expected to believe in anything? How can even the best efforts of police men and women be effective? Where is the deterrent factor?

They Say The Economy Is Booming, But For Who?

So, the "economy" is booming. Or is it? If the only measure of the success of the economy is the stock market, which measures the optimism of the rich that they will continually get richer and richer, at a faster and faster rate of growth, then that's not necessarily good for the rest of us.

Is Trump Currently Suffering From Dementia?

Donald Trump shows a striking inability to parse information. He can't order and arrange, or prioritize data in a normal way. So, we get pink elephants like airports in the Eighteen Century, refugees from terror and rampant criminality depicted as villains, and raking as a cure-all for the desiccation of North America. The President seems to be getting worse, and we are all in terror of what he may do.

Rule by Triumvirate

They steal our votes, and our hard earned incomes. They keep us in fear of imagined monsters, when the greatest enemy and danger in history is upon us - the wolf is at the door. They break laws aggressively, to destroy the "Rule of Law."
