Europe’s Favorite Genocidal Warlord

Hypocrisy marks the EU leadership. Tainted, blood-thirsty, criminal terrorists are embraced by EU for purposes that are essentially nefarious. Imagine a criminal who ius wanted for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide, and is the first sitting head of state to be indicted by the International Criminal Court. and he has the good fortune of being the proud recipient of tens of millions of dollars in cash from the European Union.The EU’s embrace of one of the world’s most loathed leaders may be hypocritical, but it has strong strategic reasons for backing him. Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir is about as much of a pariah as it is possible for a head of state to be. The man seems never to have met a terrorist group he did not like. Bashir invited Osama bin Laden to the country in the 1990s, shipped weapons for …

Excessively Narcissistic People

Everyone is a narcissist to a certain degree. Why else were mirrors invented? We usually act in our own self-interest, and nature has provided us with a range of survival mechanisms. As we grow up, many of us are taught various forms of self-worshipping behavior in addition to those we pick up on ou…

My Dad Would Be 89 Today

My dad never found a fight he couldn't walk away from, except my mom. His fight with her was completely one-sided. She attacked and he used guerilla tactics. Hide within a wall of silence until the bombs stop dropping. Eventually bombs get used up, planes need to refuel, armies need to eat, and…

Divide and Conquer–Recruiting the Sheeple

Never be intimated by your enemy's appearance. Instead, look at the parts that make up the whole. By separating the parts, sowing dissension and division, you can bring down even the most formidable foe. When you are facing troubles or enemies, turn a large problem into small, eminently defeatable …

He did it - not me, the maltreatment of liability…

A bad habit which many children pick up is to blame others for their mistakes.  It’s hard to admit to wrongdoing, as to do so then means to bring forth punishment and a need to remedy the wrong and make whole the injured party.  So much easier to blame someone else.   This ̶…

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…

Empathic Animation

If you've been watching what is happening in animation over the past few years you've probably noticed the eye popping level of detail which has begun to fill the screen.  It started with Toy Story, but 2014's Big Hero 6 announced that something *really* big was happening. The images of San Fr…

Wealth of the nation / The era of the Robot

From an economic viewpoint, looking back at the past victories and failures of state economic models is a futile exercise, as what lies before us is what really matters, as we contemplate, what the future economic realities, forced upon us by our own progress as a race, may bring?   As the new…

A Cold Civil War - 2016

In one hundred years, this time in America could very well be called the 'Cold Civil War Era'. It would be an accurate statement.   Today, however, the lines are not delineated by geography. They are delineated as 'Liberal' or 'Conservative' and a smattering of slang terms in between. For the f…

Random Thoughts that Should Concern You

Did you ever wish on a shooting star. I do all the time. Sometimes I pray that Jesus would turn all the Korans in Bibles. Or a blinding light would make all the criminals disappear.

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…
