The Great Disconnect

Chaos is the mother of tyranny.  Chaos reigns when people operate in confusion and disorder.  It is a state in which behavior and events are not controlled by reason.  Today we are faced with a government and an elite controlled media that lie to the people and then lie about lying.  They operate as if the country is theirs to run and ruin for their own personal enrichment.  Chaos is a time like today when life makes little sense and we are force-fed such gobbledygook as the , President Obama has when it comes to job creation and investment, is under control, is at 4.9%.  Over here in reality we are fighting endless wars for peace, working people are being squeezed between stagnant wages and rising prices, and almost as many able-bodied people have of the workforce as there are .  This is chaos…

My Opinion Doesn’t Matter

Growing up I did one thing very well. Kept my mouth shut and my opinion to myself. Truth is, I didn’t want to deal with the consequences of sharing my opinion if someone else didn’t agree with it. I’m just not the “confrontational type.”   But these days it’…

The Littlefield Panther

    Sometimes, you just gotta love the dirty, filthy and obscenely rich. Some collect cars, some of them collect boats, and many collect art, while others collect all of the above, and much more. Some of them donate generously and die with something resembling honor and respect, while othe…

Thoughts on Church and Worship

I've heard many a preacher say that we should be more excited in church, because they know we can get excited as evidenced by our behavior at a sporting event. However, I would like to make the argument that church is not a sporting event. It is a place of humble worship, and we are to show reveren…

Snakes and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

When I was in the 5th grade there were these two boys who terrorized me, terrified me…one of them was short and scrappy, the other one was tall and blonde. I spent a good deal of that school year in constant torment.   They were always sneaking around on the hunt for me, I would be o…

Misunderstood Millennials

I have read many articles about "Millennials" and I happened to notice that my reaction tends to be a chuckle and then I brush off the opinions and assumptions. However, I realized very quickly that if I continue to take that approach nothing with ever change. I would need to explain myself, my posi…

The Invisible Upgrade in Healthcare

  I paid a visit to my doctor a while back and recently received a bill. I'd been upgraded after the fact.   My visit wasn't related to illness, just a simple medication refill. I paid $80 at the time and never gave it another thought once I left the office. I had been upgraded to a Level…

Optimist or pessimist

Sunrise or sunset?  Do you tend to be an optimist or pessimist?  Some things seems so unrealistic or impossible, it makes most of us feel powerless to affect our future.   Imagine a organic country.  In the United States, where only 1% farmland is certified organic, a little over…

Accepting Power

What we have seen in the world is that the people who have been given power tend to use it irresponsibly. That's what I think when I look at the news. Then there are people who run companies like Patagonia, using a model of good citizenship, not the corporate model of maximizing profits, and my hope…
