About

After 30 years in manufacturing, I am hoping to spend the rest of my life helping others.My views are unorthodox and unconventional and I hope that I can bring a different perspective to our dialog.

I have lived overseas and have traveled extensively coming into contact with all classes and many cultures. I am an explorer and a critical thinker and a risk taker. Most of those risks taken have paid off, but every one of them has been a learning experience. The world has so much to offer and we are only here for a brief time. I try to make the best use of that time that I can.

My favorite literary works these days are the classics but I will admit to being at the epicenter of punk rock and hip hop and New Wave back in the day. From roaming the streets of Berlin and NYC and Shanghai and London to the raw beauty of Patagonia and Alaska to 90′ down I try to find the kernel of each moment. Sometimes I’m right and sometimes I’m wrong but i think I get it right more than not.

I write for my own pleasure and passions and hold deeply rooted beliefs in tradition and the bases for those traditions. All that is new is not necessarily good and we must be careful to sort the good from the chaff. technology is an incredible tool, but it is simply a tool not an end point.

 

I always keep this nearby:

Seek the Lord while He may be found, call Him while he is near.

Let the scoundrel forsake his way and the wicked man his thoughts;

Let him turn to the Lord for mercy; to our God, who is generous in forgiving.

For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, saith the Lord.

As high as the heavens are above the earth, so high are My ways above your ways and My thoughts above your thoughts.

For just as from the Heavens the rain and snow come down and do not return there till they have watered the earth, making it fertile and fruitful, giving seed to him that sows and bread to him who eats,

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but shall do My will, achieving the end for which I sent it.”

Isaiah 55, 6-11

  1. The U.S. Congress’s Dereliction of Duty?
    Any “EQUAL JUSTICE” for service women & men ideas?
    Thank you.

    The U.S. Congress’s responsibility under the 1791 U.S. Constitution, Art. I, Sect. 8, Clause 14 and the Bill of Rights, Amendment VIII is: “To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces.” [1] and “…nor cruel and unusual punishments.” [2]. Doesn’t this mean the U.S. Congress stopping their own proven veteran’s betrayal [5] by the DOD, “experiments that were designed to harm” and the DOD’s “Degrading Treatment” [6] by their rape of service women? Please require your members of congress to obey their 70 years of an abandoned Oath of Office! Shouldn’t U.S. Service Personnel have the same U.S. Constitutional, Amendment 8, Rights that convicted rapists and murderers keep under, The International, “…Freedom from Torture, or Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.”[6]?
    [
    The Oath of Office for the U.S. Congress is: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”[10]

    “EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW” is written above the main entrance to the U.S. Supreme Court Building. Any ideas on how to make this happen for veterans and active duty military men and woman?
    [
    As proven by an EIGHT (8) times rejection of the “Veterans Right to Know Act”, a divided U.S. Congress still withholds military needed for treatment and experimentation identifying records.[4] On 25 July 2012 a U.S. Judge ordered the VA to release these records![3] Before that there is Congress’s own 1994 U.S. Senate Report, “IS MILITARY RESEARCH HAZARDOUS TO VETERANS’ HEALTH? LESSONS SPANNING HALF A CENTURY.”. It records that “EVERY YEAR, THOUSANDS OF EXPERIMENTS UTILIZING HUMAN SUBJECTS ARE STILL BEING CONDUCTED BY, OR ON BEHALF OF, THE DOD.” Then the “I. INTRODUCTION” with its, “III. Findings and conclusions” states, “K. DOD and DVA have repeatedly failed to provide information and medical followup to those who participate in military research…” plus “N. Participation in military research is rarely included in military medical records, making it impossible to support a veteran’s claim for service-connected disabilities from military research.”[5] Also to-date U.S. CONGRESS scorned is this 1994 U.S. SENATE REPORT’S, “The Feres Doctrine should not be applied for military personnel who are harmed by inappropriate human experimentation when informed consent has not been given.”
    [
    This 1950 U.S. Supreme Court Feres Case determined that an accidental barracks fire death was a U.S. is not responsible “incident to service”![9] Then the 1987 U.S. Supreme Court STANLEY decision wraps up deliberately injured experimented on Military Personnel in the “incident to service” accidental cloak![7] Approved was an injurious 1958 non-consensual LSD experiment. This experiment was in direct disobedience of the DOD Secretary’s 26 February 1953 NO non-consensual experiments order.[8] The 1987 U.S. V. Stanley Case, Footnote 4, Page 688 states, “TO CONCEAL THESE ACTIVITIES FROM THE AMERICAN PUBLIC IN GENERAL, BECAUSE PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE OF THE UNETHICAL AND ILLICIT ACTIVITIES WOULD HAVE SERIOUS REPERCUSSIONS IN POLITICAL AND DIPLOMATIC CIRCLES….”.[7] This is the still U.S. Congress ignored CIA, Inspector General’s non-consensual human experiments statement. In 2014 Congress’s own to date ignored “HAZARDOUS” “LESSONS” learned [5] will span SEVENTY (70) years without correction, i.e., 1944 – 2014! (EMPHASIS ADDED THROUGHOUT)
