General Conversation Around the State of News and the Age We Are In

I posted several things on the website Peakoil.com that have to do with this subject. Instead of restating them, I decided to copy them, and the relevant posts from others that helped shape them. The thread title was Deep State Black Ops. I said, “So, if Putin launched a misinformation campaign against Hillary Clinton because … Continue reading

The Architecture of Frustration

I think we need to look upon the economy like a layered onion, or a tree. All of the attention is focused upon the outermost layer, the one that is growing. The trouble with the US economy is that since the 70’s the outermost layer has become detached from the domestic economy. The fact is … Continue reading

Right-of-Way: the Grand Compromise Necessary in Western Thought

Jesus said, “He who is greatest among you must be servant of all.” Did he really mean what you think he meant? When I was a kid I used to watch Star Trek like some people would go to church. I would hurry home after school to make sure I caught that afternoon’s episode. I … Continue reading

EU Migrant Crisis

I posted this on peakoil.com today, 3/3/16. It pertains to a lot of things I have been thinking about lately. It’s not intended to take a strong stand one way or the other on immigration in Europe, but to elucidate a point about it that seems lost in the furor. There is a lot that … Continue reading

By the Sweat of Your Brow

Recently, I started a second job. It involves using my car to deliver things. Unlike my other job, though, it does not involve a delivery route. Instead it is about delivering stats, rush orders, to a laboratory. So, yes, it is still in some way related to medical deliveries. Let me tell you about how … Continue reading

What Does it Mean for Jesus to Call Himself the ‘Son of Man’?

I was just walking back in the bitter cold, minus one Fahrenheit, from dropping off last night’s movies into the Redbox when it hit me. Under the natural state of things people living outside in these conditions don’t fair very well. It’s all very good and well for that squirrel that lives out back of … Continue reading

The State of Things

I’ve been looking on with wonder at the rate of police related problems that have occurred not just recently in America, but over time. I’ve already blogged about Michael Brown in another post, Speak to the Rock, so I won’t go into that, but there are some other instances that bear talking about, before we … Continue reading

A Little More About Education

This morning I read a piece on the LA Times website¬†http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-unions-react-tenure-ruling-20140611-story.html concerning how a judge has thrown out the concept of tenure in the California Educational System. His argument was that it was “obvious” that making students remain under a poor teacher was bad for them. To quote the article, “In his ruling Tuesday, Los … Continue reading

The Economics of a Truly Different World Order

One of the great questions of my life, handed down to me by the quirk of my place in history, has been how to reconcile capitalism and communism. There is nothing like capitalism to provide incentive to people. The generally accepted monetary medium (and the systems that make that possible), rather than the favor of … Continue reading

The Sins of Jeroboam

Jeroboam was king over Israel after the reign of Solomon. He set up two bulls as things to worship so that the people of Israel wouldn’t turn to the temple in Jerusalem, such that their loyalties would be split between two nations. After Solomon the kingdom split into two kingdoms, Israel and Judah. Jeroboam did … Continue reading
