- "As soon as the land of any country has all become private property, the landlords, like all other men, love to reap where they never sowed, and demand a rent even for its natural produce. The wood of the forest, the grass of the field, and all the natural fruits of the earth, which, when land was in common, cost the labourer only the trouble of gathering them, come, even to him, to have an additional price fixed upon them. He must then pay for the licence to gather them; and must give up to the landlord a portion of what his labour either collects or produces. This portion, or, what comes to the same thing, the price of this portion, constitutes the rent of land"

I'm watching Rachel Maddow tear apart Mitt Romney piece by piece, and Ed Schultz before that. They are so expert at what they do, I have such appreciation, and admiration for their ability to carry the torch and help keep Romney from hoodwinking simpler Americans and leading the country t… Read full post »
He started out in 2nd grade ordering a big bully to follow me home from school and beat me up. Then after I made him laugh, he helped me get elected as elementary school class president. We became best friends throughout junior high up to the 2nd year of high school… Read full post »
I found something of interest in the United States Articles of Confederation which states that people receiving public assistance or vagabonds, cannot travel between the States and may not be recognized as citizens at all, depending on interpretation.

It’s no secret. I live in an authoritarian household. It’s dominated by an individual who fancies herself as The Boss…of everything. I try to defend myself with logic & reason, when the Authoritarian makes her illogical decrees, but it always ends… Read full post »

The principle of similar as it translates to English. A doctrine which finds common denominators and builds a philosophy for rules of governance based on shared traits.

I finally got around to watching about 15 minutes worth of Zooey Deschanel's new Fox sitcom "The New Girl", before I felt the need to blog about the obnoxious $95,000 a month salary she gets paid for doing the show.
Okay, she has pretty blue eyes and dark hair, she sings well and… Read full post »
Wiring Colors Standardized
All electrical wiring for any application should be color code standardized so that one color designates positive, negative and ground. It’s too confusing otherwise. Presently in various applications from house wiring to automotive, the color design… Read full post »

Reading about the Missouri female teenager Alyssa Bustamante who killed a 9 year old child to "find out what it felt like to kill someone", is more of a case against smalltown religious upbringing than it is about "broken morals" in our society, although it undoubtedly contains elements of both.

It is possible that one may become 'reborn' into this world-randomly. Therefore prudent souls should do what they can to secure a better world in even the remote chance they become born into another tumultous region, which presently may be in a state of great disarray and turmoil, but barely pa… Read full post »

I need to take a moment to discuss the issue of biological sickness as a form of psychological torture and punishment.

You may be following the ruckus surrounding voter ID cards in South Carolina. Because SC had a problem in the past with providing equal rights for black people, it is closely monitored by the Federal Government to make sure they don’t return to their old Jim Crow ways.

I agree with the Casey Anthony verdict, not because I'm insensitive to the horrible thing that happened to little Caylee, but because the criminal justice system in America is wrong, and needs to be dealt blow after blow to help diminish its power over people's lives.
