*A fair warning to me dear readers. This is not a finished piece but more of a work in progress. I will continue to edit it, perhaps add to it, certainly refine it. I will also link to my sources as time goes on.* So, regarding my post the other day. The State of the… Continue reading Take me to Church
I have a problem with authority. Many people who know me slightly will have no idea what I mean. Even some of my closer friends and co-workers won’t understand what I mean. You see, it’s not that I have trouble or resistance to following directions, somebody’s lead or being a team player. I can do,… Continue reading A Different Kind of Campaign
We have a two party system, I don’t think that will go away. We’re creatures of habit in the U.S., you could say it’s a tradition of ours. It might be time we changed them, though. So how do we go about changing parties, given that 3rd parties tend to be stillborn? We stop using… Continue reading NPO – A New Political Order
“Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the Communist party?” That was a question asked during one of the darker spots of our governmental history. A time, not unlike today, where the appearance or accusation of impropriety could ruin a person – usually to the financial and political betterment of some… Continue reading 90% Communist

Editor’s Note: I wrote this back about 3 months or so, ago. I was going to add a paragraph or two about my Dad, which I might do as an extended piece, but I thought I would get it posted now, as it has spent far too much time on my “To Do” list. … Continue reading What are we fighting for?
Dear God, help us! Heh. Still between that article, and another one I read but cannot find, the Montana Democrats are in need of a few good candidates. Perhaps I should throw my hat into the ring as the kind of candidate they need. You see, I’m not a Democrat. I’m not a Republican any… Continue reading And your new Democratic candidate is… Not a Democrat
One less than yesterday, no pressure though. I started my day knowing it is one less day, one less day to do whatever it is I’m willing to commit to. Did I start my day with a purpose? No, but I wanted to… Today is exercise, it’s sales calls and making money, it is Fur… Continue reading 136 Days
I had to post this here, it just seemed too fun not to. Monopoly has a reputation as a wrecker of friendships and families, a wasteland of destruction for relationships. I cannot really recall having that experience, but I didn’t play it a great deal after about age 10. In the scenario below, if you… Continue reading It’s all fun and games.
