The Times We are In

Our minds, out of habit, crave unambiguous, well-packaged reality. If we all accept that in truth, all of us want to be happy, then such a craving would seem both logical and a useful as the impetus to achieve this utopian goal.
Yet, time and again, our efforts get foiled no matter where we (more…)

Frankenstein Alfalfa

This week, Monsanto was able to convince the US president that GMO alfalfa is good for the country.

There are just some things I think that {Pres. Obama just doesn't get. And, maybe Michelle has got to have a good, long talk with him.

The fact is that if GMOs take over our food (more…)

After the statutes ran out on whatever laws we did have regarding campaign financing, an out of control situation has now become, "officially" out of control.

How more apparent can it be that our political process is so wimpy, reactive, and utterly ineffective when we watch the hyper attention and posturing that comes with the Tuesday election in Massachusetts?

As you may or may not know, I never thought that the health care bill proposed by Democrats was really of (more…)

More Health Care Nonsense

Listening to the discussions about the current attempts to create an American health care plan have done little to excite me. On fact, I have found them rather absurd.

A sign of a "great society" is one that seeks to elevate the quality of life of its citizenry. This obviously includes health care. (more…)
