is the ultimate question the trial of Derek Chauvin is attempting to answer. However, the trial won't even come close. I've been watching (via CSPAN 2, i.e.sans commentary). He Was Murdered is the State's argument. In essence that case is: We (= the Minneapolis Police Department) are good, and the individual (= Officer Derek Chauvin) … Continue reading Crisis Intervention: Why George Floyd Died?
Recently my friend Billy asked me if I was working on anything, meaning writing. I answered: What's the point? Because, why bother? When I explained the why - he concurred. The Evidence is the data on YouTube's product. I learned, ironically, while watching a Joe Rogan podcast on YouTube, that the latest statistics are: 500hrs … Continue reading What’s the Point: Playing or Winning?
I can't help myself, despite my psych-girl's counsel (to be quite). I have to go on the record. I was right in 2016, and think I'm right again. Why Trump Wins even bigger than before? You might ask? Because, as before, I believe my own eyes, ears, and analysis. In other words, I base my … Continue reading Election 2020: My Prediction
I am a lonely visitor, I came too late to cause a stir, but I campaigned all my life toward that goal. Neil Young, 1969. "Campaigner" The 2020 campaign for POTUS began yesterday, at the summer solstice, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. President Donald J. Trump held an indoor, public rally, against the wishes and guidance … Continue reading Election 2020: The Campaign Begins
Where to begin? It could be a James Michener novel. I Love the Pandemic Panic. In other words - the craziness of 2020 has exposed humans for who they are. Humans (including myself) are self-serving, egotistical, and smug, whilst denying that ... . Well ... ? The biosphere is now so clear. In other words, … Continue reading I Love The Pandemic Panic
I took the last step to being a free man in Colorado Wednesday - cutting the cable. That's right! I am now totally internet dependent. (More free?) No more broadcast, or cable, TV talking heads for me. The blather and nonsense is gone. Poof. I have removed from my life all that propaganda, as well … Continue reading Free Man In Colorado: Unplugged
As it turns out, upon further research, The Magpie Cafe is actually a cafe for a breeding pair of the bird species, and not a gathering place for humans. Today, Monday March 9, 2020, as spring seems to have sprung on Colorado's front range, I did some research. That's me (using my iPhone) with a … Continue reading The Magpie Cafe, part III
On the cusp of the New Hampshire primary, here in Colorado I've been snowbound. It has snowed six of the last eight days. Back-in-the-day (forty-nine years ago to the day), such a barrage of snow would not have fazed me. In fact it would have invigorated me. Then, I was living in a cabin in … Continue reading Snowbound, screens, & self care
Joe Rogan endorses Bernie Sanders, for the Democrat primary ... . (Pay attention!) I bet he pulls the lever for Trump. I'm just spitballing. But, at the end of the day, after all is said and done ... I'll bet you, no matter the Democrat nominee, Joe Rogan pulls the lever for Trump. But, we'll … Continue reading Rogan endorses Sanders
Independent thinking - if you ask people, most would probably say that that is something they mostly do; but that's likely not the case. How can I say that? Where's the evidence? Well that's the trouble with self reports, polling, even psychological testing. Independent thinking is something one can only surmise by observing and recording … Continue reading Independent thinking
