Must we build walls everywhere to protect us from…

Apart from the Wall to prevent more illegal aliens from entering our nation from Mexico and parts South, we see more new barriers such as the new Missile Net being constructed to protect the airport In Israel. Israel builds a unique 20ft high 'missile net' on border to defend its new airport--http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5744781/Israel-builds-missile-net-border-protect-airport.html   We have gated communities everywhere designed, ostensibly, to keep out undesirables from intruding on our privacy or annoying us and to minimize crime.  Many of our citizens have security forces or bodyguards to ensure our safety. We have an extensive set of sophisticated locks and surveillance cameras in and about or homes that alert us a to intruders and others who might do us harm. Our cars are equipped with elaborate alarms to prevent…

Are We Falling Prey to our own Arrogance?

If you had told an Afghan woman in the 1960s that her granddaughters would wear a veil she would have laughed you out of the door. Women in Kabul wore skimpy dresses, make up and high heels. The occasional headscarf or even Burka could be seen, but was very uncommon. Out in the countryside women wo…

I have watched the INSANE Palestinians riot, bomb Israel with rockets, blow themselves up with suicide bombs so they could kill more Jews, and scream and cry over their dead for over 50 years.  If those tactics could get their land back it would have happened many years ago but it didn't and I …

Police Story: Part One

Recently I was waiting at one of my favorite sleazy food joints when I saw an unattended police car. Walking around it, I marveled at what it had on both the interior and exterior. From the outside, it looked more like a hostile deep-space probe than a vehicle designed with terrestrial public safety…

Hey, hey, my, my....Rock and Roll will never....

Tom Petty. Greg Allman. David Bowie. Can you believe the amazing amount of talent that we have lost recently? I find it very sad that there is no longer any hope of smoking a joint with Tom, or doing shots with Greg, or sharing a wild evening in bed with David and his super hot, smoking sexy wife. N…

MY HISTORY WITH IMMIGRATION

In my youth, I was smarter than teachers. A street kid who always had money. I was invited to drop out of high school, because I never attended anyway. Because I was a child, living as an adult, I perused the industrial parks, looking for work as an apprentice machinist or anything I could lie my wa…

Remembering Teachers

I recently re-read a certain book given to me by my 6th-grade teacher, and I got to thinking about all of the various "teachers" that I had in my young life. Unfortunately, with a few notable exceptions, all of my teachers from the seventh grade on were pretty much a bunch of assholes. I can say tha…

The Singapore Sandbox

Trump not only multi-tasks, but he plays in a sandbox that very few understand.  You may hate him, but he knows big players in the big game.  Most pundits are accustomed to Obama's "small-ball" slow motion academic-style activity.  With this they can keep up.  Like me.  Trum…

The loony left does attack Christianity...but

God should send me to Hell

I have had many chances in my life to help Christians out (financially, or logistically, or otherwise).   When I was an Atheist, they generally treated it as if they were doing me a favor by discussing their beliefs with me (whether bidden or not).   Now, they are either simply grateful, o…

As it was once said, “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”  Bitcoin has been joined by 1,450 digital coin offerings. I have never been happy with the term “coin” since we associate coins with metal objects we can hold in our hands, except for maybe the island of…
