Since I expect my original post explaining my motivation for this blog to eventually get buried in time, I thought I’d make a page to ensure anybody that reads this in the future and wonders “what in heaven’s name is this guy up to” is able to have easy access to that explanation.

With that in mind, my first post proving that rationale…


John Wayne once said, “A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do.”  (Hondo, Warnercolor, 1953)

In this case, a man’s gotta write what a man’s gotta write. Why? Because the world DESERVES to know.

We have issues. Everyone has issues. Man made issues. Forget about Global Warming. The earth can take care of itself. That is not to suggest we should pollute with abandon. Just focus on things about which we should really do something.

> First, I am not a “certified” expert on anything. Nevertheless, as a relatively intelligent person with many God given talents, I ensure am unquestionably qualified to communicate valuable opinions (vice preferences) on all topics about which I will write. There is nothing about which I will write that a “normal”, relatively intelligent, thinking person could not come up on their own. However, few apparently do. And many, that may or may not actually think, ignore the obvious. For convenience, for power, for notoriety, for whatever. Therefore, I have taken the burden upon myself to grace humanity with a written account of what they SHOULD already know and practice. You are welcome.

> Second, there is no logic put into the arrangement or order of my topics. I discuss ideas as they pop into my head. All logic is reserved for the individual discussion topics.

Finally, this is not intended to be a political site. However, on occasion I will post thoughts on political issues. Do not take this as a vote for or against any political party (as mentioned on my “About” page, I am a Conservative and a registered Independent”) or individual. Take the thoughts for what they are worth. Something to consider.

Two things I always keep in mind:

-Alexander the Great once said, “Remember, upon the conduct of each depends the fate of all.”

-It is attributed to Edmund Burke having once said, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

With that in mind, let us progress to those topics of import…

Mod 1 (5 Feb 12):

“Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again.”     Andre Gide

“We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.”  George Orwell

In my “Why?” page [above] I said I am doing this “Because the world DESERVES to know.”

As well, I said, “I have taken the burden upon myself to grace humanity with a written account of what they SHOULD already know and practice.”

With all those said I also want to make clear I do not have a monopoly on this knowledge.  In fact, much of what I have to say has at least been hinted at by others.  That is part of the point, people haven’t listened.  Sometimes that is due to the “others” being relegated to ancient history (about which we should, heaven forbid, read), sometimes to limited access (to a venue or an audience).  Sometimes (but rarely) I am just repeating.  Sometimes I am elaborating.  Therefore, on occasion, of which this is one, I will be setting out a series of quotes on a particular subject that spells out, by those far more intelligent than I (at least on that given subject), much that we SHOULD know.   NO, this is not a copout.  It is an acknowledgement that some people are smarter than I.
