Random Observations While Living A Semi-Nomadic Existence in NYC (Part 2)

This is a continuation of an unfinished essay that was published accidentally. I was in the process of stating my feelings about the hordes of tourists that descend daily upon Times Square while trying to enjoy breakfast one morning. 1) {continued} As I was sipping my coffee I wondered how many of these people had […]

Pay The Farmer Or Pay The Pharma: The Pharmaceutical Food Industrial Complex

It’s your choice. Consuming poison seems to have become normal in society today. How a supposed civilized and educated society can drag itself down to a place where this has become acceptable behavior seems beyond comprehension. Why do so few people care about what they put in their mouths? Or worse, care about what they […]

The Monsanto Story: Planting Seeds of Deception

One day, while walking in front of Madison Square Garden, I saw a gentleman wearing a t-shirt promoting “green” technology. I smiled and was about to say something while reading the shirt when I saw the name Monsanto on it. Monsanto? Seriously? Apparently, this t-shirt promoting awareness of the environment was given out as part […]

What Is A Conservative?

What is a conservative? Do many people ask themselves that question?

A recent post on Jeff Nyugen’s blog Deconstructing Myths inspired me to write about an issue that I’ve been contemplating for a while. Jeff wrote about a reporter, Claire O’Brien, who covered the murder trial of a Mexican immigrant being denied justice. She showed compassion for this man – who acted in self-defense – and, […]

How Do You Like Your Poison?

One hundred forty six people sick and thirty dead from eating tainted cantaloupes in 2011. More than one hundred people sickened and possibly twenty one dead (four were miscarriages or stillbirths) from listeria contracted from eating cold cuts and hot dogs in 1998. Four hundred twenty five cases of salmonella poisoning in 2006 and 2007 from peanut butter produced by infamous U.S. […]

The Greatest Nation On Earth? Seriously?

The United States of “America”. Yes, “America”. Not the United States of British Colonies. Not the United States of Mostly European Invaders. Not Land of Genocide, Oppression and Slavery. “America”. Europeans invaded this land, started a genocide of the inhabitants which hasn’t ended after five centuries and installed a society (not a civilization – that would […]

Sowing The Seeds of Our Own Destruction

Greed is a plague that thrives in a society based on economics. A society in which love of money and possessions is so widely accepted that greed & selfishness are rewarded is doomed to destroy itself. This is especially true when moral courage and creative thinking are routinely dismissed as childish idealism that has no […]
