I don't make money doing this. It all started as a request from someone who thought the speech I made and the questions I answered for people about the climate crisis needed expression in a larger setting.

I don't have millions of readers like the newspapers or the media outlets. I bring a point of view to the format of the public realm and it is valued by some who come to the blog regularly.

I thank those that value what they find here. It is good to know it counts. 

Thank you.

Just a word about the demonstrations in Chicago. I think it is very healthy for the country to find itself again. 

Something happened along the way from the 1990s. Somehow the people were quieted and mostly dispassionate about their lives and their values. Everything turned to money and suing in the courts. I don't consider that healthy. The courts are power and are not easily accessible by everyone. The USA is not suppose to be a rich man's game. It is suppose to be a democracy where people can have freedom of speech, including demonstrations, to let their government know the citizens are not happy.

This discontent in the country has been growing and it is understandable the elections are going to find citizens upset with their lives.

It think it is about time the people expressed themselves. There doesn't have to be violence. But, there should be a safe method of expressing the discontent in the country.

Nice pictures of the State Dinner of Canada. I really like the gown the First Lady worn.

This is what I was met with when I tried to log into my blog.

This is outrageous. I don't spam. I would not know how to spam.

KNOCK IT OFF !!!!!!!!!!!

You can take your Stuxnet Virus and stick it where the sun don't shine !!!!

History defines politics in the USA with demonstrations and freedom of speech..

This kind of rancor is not unusual for USA political gatherings. 

The conventions always prepare for demonstrations. The Republican convention in NYC actually had the city government sequester demonstrators in side streets. But, the demonstrators were allowed to march.

The Donald Trump campaign should seek to diffuse the organizing around their rallies. He should hold smaller more organized gatherings. Donald Trump have always held large rallies in stadiums. He has never held small household gatherings with supporters. Small gatherings can be televised as it happens OR after the gathering has broken up. He can take questions from the media inside the gathering and/or outside of it.

Donald Trump has not demonstrated his ability to have interpersonal relationships with political supporters. He should show his more personal side.

At the last debate it was noted by Senator Cruz that there is two Donald Trumps. The one people see in public and then the one behind the scenes.

Donald Trump should rebut that and hold intimate political gatherings and address questions and carry out conversation and humor. He should have gathering with friends that know him and discuss the problems of the country as if a casual evening.

I think it is important Donald Trump HUMANIZE himself and let the country know he is a person with friends that see the world similar to him. He should allow people to see him disarmed from the issues at hand that are carried out in rallies.

He doesn't have to lose his momentum. Besides it will give the police and security a break.

I wish him luck.

The hidden truth about Hillary Clinton. Will her image further be diminished by the devil himself.

First published in 1971, (click here) Rules for Radicals is Saul Alinsky's impassioned counsel to young radicals on how to effect constructive social change and know "the difference between being a realistic radical and being a rhetorical one." Written in the midst of radical political developments whose direction Alinsky was one of the first to question, this volume exhibits his style at its best. Like Thomas Paine before him, Alinsky was able to combine, both in his person and his writing, the intensity of political engagement with an absolute insistence on rational political discourse and adherence to the American democratic tradition.

The next PR issue for Hillary Clinton. Ben Carson, "...The dedication of the book is to Lucifer, the original radical. I don't want to have anything to do with that book."
Okay, Hillary, fess up. When was the last time you were at a devil worship service?

For those curious, that is a rare book. It perhaps may be found in book stores that specialize. A 1971 book is a rarity these days. It probably has value if it is on anyone's book shelf.

If the reference to Saul Alinsky is any indication to the successful run for the presidency, Hillary Clinton is a shoe in.

The way Newt Gingrich (click here) refers to the connection between Barack Obama and Saul Alinsky, one might think the president and the community organizer were golf buddies… except for the stubborn fact Alinsky died in 1972 when Obama was 10.
Among Gingrich’s quotes: “Obama believes in Saul Alinsky and secular European socialist bureaucracy.” And “Saul Alinsky radicalism is at the heart of Obama.”
Two things Obama and Alinsky do have in common are their Chicago home bases and parts of their resumes. As NPR puts it, “President Obama proudly talks about his days as a community organizer in Chicago, and the late Chicagoan Alinsky ‘wrote the book’ on community organizing.”...

I am sure Lucifer has brought success to Playboy for all these decades.

“My only fixed truth is a belief in people, a conviction that if people have the opportunity to act freely and the power to control their own destinies, they’ll generally reach the right decisions.”
— Saul Alinsky to Playboy, 1972

It sounds like empowerment and not Satan worship.

Donald Trump is correct, the Republican debate was far better than in the past.

Ben Carson's endorsement will help serve to unite the Republican Party.

Miami — Conservative favorite Ben Carson, (click here) who last week suspended his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, plans to endorse Donald Trump on Friday morning, according to two people familiar with his thinking.
The endorsement, perhaps the most high-profile nod for Trump since New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie backed him, was finalized Thursday morning when Carson met with Trump at Mar-a-Lago, the luxury club owned by the Republican front-runner, the people said. The sources requested anonymity to discuss private conversations.
Friday’s announcement will also take place at the club in Palm Beach, Fla., where the onetime rivals will appear alongside one another at a news conference....

The country says good-bye to a friendly, delightful and mission driven First Lady.

Close relatives from 10 White House families (click here) - from Caroline Kennedy to first lady Michelle Obama - were expected to attend funeral services on Friday for Nancy Reagan at her late husband's presidential library in Southern California.

The memorial service for the former Hollywood actress and first lady capped two days during which thousands of mourners filed past her flower-bedecked casket as she lay in repose at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, north of Los Angeles....

First Lady Nancy Reagan served the public in the White House with concern for drug addiction. Her dedication to the country never ended even after leaving the White House. She took a vital role in finding advances to end Alzheimer's Disease.

She will always be remembered and the country sadly says a final good-bye.
