What Fools We Are!

July 16, 2013

The Economist’s Question on Obama’s Promise of Open Government, “Is it naive to think Mr Obama really believed this stuff?” YES… The Economist “Secret government: America against democracy” is a compelling and scary analysis of secret government in America – a nation that has become a caricature of the open government President Obama promised when he came to office.

A Story For Patriots’ Day

April 22, 2012

This is a story about Patriots’ Day, April 19, and Patriot Day, September 11, and is about better days in the United States, when a man could be known and elected President even with truly “gallant, generous, manly, and disinterested actions” lurking in his past.  It is also a story about Paul Revere.

It’s hard to go against the current of the large corporations, large governments, large NGOs, so when environmentalists, what’s left of us, get... Read article
