We the People: Do Not Count Any Longer…

Once what we said mattered and what we cared about mattered, but today unless you can sue about what bothers you or interferes with you or impedes your progress to wealth. Nothing matters and no one cares. Example: Someone fences off half your property? The only true recourse left is to sue that person and get your land back. What…

Days like Today…

Days like today bring back memories, even memories we do not want to be brought to the surface again. I have found that dreams bring certain memories with them and a morning like today, brings other memories with them. My dreams bring the past of war and when I wake on a morning like this, I find it has brought…

The Obama Doctrine: Up Yours! by John Stanton…

The Howard P. “Buck” McKeon National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2015 (Defense Authorization Act) should be renamed the Howard P. “Buck” McKeon Global Manifest Destiny Act of FY2015. The Defense Authorization Act reads like something that the Biffer-Baum Birds in Dr. Seuss’ Sleep Book might have written.

Sveta Made it to the Village and that cup of coffee…

Perfect is in the eye of the beholder…

Most people I know would not find the village that I am at, as being anywhere close to perfect. That is anyone I know from all over the world. I know people from India who would go insane at the shear thought of such isolation and I know people from Australia, who would scream foul over the lack of isolation…

Seasons between Winter…

Finally Gardens are just about planted and trying to survive in this fairly harsh climate we have in Russia. This weekend a family of six whirled into the village, grabbed the buckets and emptied the well. They were in survival mode to save their garden. They had tomatoes planted from the week before and this week they planted potatoes. The…

I am blessed within my mindset…

I use to think being blessed was something spiritual and powerful, then as the years went by, I realized that being blessed was a state of mind… That is what I am thinking this morning as I sip that cup of coffee… Every morning I wake up at around 6am and I find a big fat house fly on the…
