The Climate Change Denier Gang

Many conservatives deny climate change for political reasons. I'm a scientist, received my doctorate in 1964, retired as a VP of R&D, and understand the process by which new knowledge develops. In 1998 I was given some half-dozen of journal articles to read and was convinced that CO2 in the atmosphere was really increasing (details more complex than I want to go into). Correlating that knowledge over the past 20 years with events makes clear that many of the things which are happening are due to climate. One example is that annual worldwide temperatures are setting new records year after year. (Living in an ice age is malarkey.) I could go on with many other examples of phenomena occurring because of climate change but suspect that this would just be wasted words.   Conservatives pick every dubious example they have found to poo-…

Now this is difficult because it is so subjective. I do not like guitarists because they are technically brilliant but purely on how good they sound to my ear. Thus I rule out people like Steve Vai and Joe Satriani because I find them boring.   The very best is easy - Jimi Hendrix stands out fo…

Why I don't wear a red poppy!

Back in the sixties, where my philosophy stems from, we were a generation who wanted peace. We stood against war. We took the attitude that violence creates violence and there were better ways of dealing with problems.   The Vietnam war was raging. American boys were being brought back maimed o…

Are white suppremists as bad as Nazi's?

Stopping the Invasion

A “caravan” that started out with 2000 people for Honduras and Guatemala is making its way through Mexico and is now up to 14,000 approximately.  This isn’t a “caravan” but an invasion.   The media would have you believe that these are just innocent people …

The US Midterm Results - A Perfect Outcome!

Firearms and mental health

Currently there are no laws which stipulate that a person needs to take a psychological test to see if they are competent enough to responsibly purchase, own, and/or transfer firearms.   Do you think there should be tests of this sort?   Asking for a few male, military-aged Muslim "associa…

Civilizing Trolls

What If?

I've asked myself numerous times the "what if" question about the mid-terms.  It's quite clear what will happen if the Democrats retake the House, even if it is only by one vote.  The Democrats will push for impeachment of Trump and Kavanaugh.  It won't succeed unless a crime is uncov…

We hear a lot of sneers directed at the rich. Like “the 1 per cent,” “greedy” or “fat cats.” Today, I’ll ask: To what extent do the rich deserve these insults? Then, I’ll look at poverty, and ask: Why are so many people poor? And how might the problem …
