No, it's the stupidity, Stupid

After my first letter to the local paper on gun violence, there were numerous responses. Unrelated to my own letter, the editor of the paper authored an editorial that I refer to in the opening of the following post. Mr. Chapman was one of the people that responded to me. Most were defending the NRA leadership positions to various degrees, while people who agreed with me, sought me out to tell me in person. They are reluctant to speak out publicly. So the following post was my response to their… Continue

Richard III

Now is the winter of our discontent

Made glorious summer by this sun of York;

And all the clouds that lour'd upon our house

In the deep bosom of the ocean buried. (Richard the III, Act I, Scene I)

Has been found, Richard's head and body that is, buried in what is now a parking lot in the city of Leicester in the…

On February 1st, 2003, the space shuttle Columbia was torn apart upon reentry after completing its successful mission to the International Space Station. The crew failed to return home.

Underemployment

If you pay attention to the major news outlets, you would think the economy is getting better (http://tv.msnbc.com/2013/02/01/unemployment-ticks-up-to-7-9-but-signs-of-strong-recovery/).  Most of the news organizations ignore the net job losses, workforce participation rates and most of all, the level of underemployment in the United States.  There are strong indicators that things are…

The 14,000

It is just a number, a big one, but still a number. And yet, it means something else, means about $9 trillion in recovered wealth as the Dow Jones Industrial index has recovered to close at 14000, the first time since July, 2007.

So, do most Americans feel better than they did 5 years ago? Nope, most Americans are still challenged to do better. Then who are the beneficiaries of the recovery? Good question.

Most American corporations are, and the bigger the better.…
