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.
A totally political judiciary is the same as no judiciary at all. This is a principle goal of the mafia, to destroy the rule of law. With the United States Congress and Supreme Court having become wholly-owned subsidiaries of Trump Enterprises, that just leaves one branch, on a rotten tree.
Trump said that he knew, and didn't know, on the very same day. But, you see, that's not a contradiction to the President. You must be saying to yourself: "Of course it's a lie. Both stories can't be true." Right? Wrong! Not to Donald Trump!
Dr. Lee makes sense of Trump's pathology. She defines him medically, and so well that we begin to feel that there may be a solution, an antidote, to Trump and Trumpism. They are diseases. They have causes. And terrible consequences. Like the virus, if we don't stop them, and put an end to them, they may put an end to us.
The real story, and the real danger, is that we are following a path backward in time, transported by Dialectic Materialism into a decline for worldwide individual liberty and sovereignty, and finally into Stalinist autocracy.
I quickly descended into a nightmarish cycle of lying on my side because of exhaustion, followed immediately by sitting up to breathe several breaths, manually controlled. It was the only way that I could breathe, but it was exhausting. The complete cycles became shorter and shorter until they were only about thirty to forty seconds long. This went on for ten days.
In the President's speech during the White House coronavirus response meeting yesterday, and especially in the prepared statement, I saw something that I had never seen before in a human being. And I came to realize that every monster I've ever known was just a story in a book, no matter how real-seeming or frightening.
