    Thumbnail In B. Traven’s 1927 novel, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre , part of the plot involved outlaws pretending to be police in order to murder the American gold prospectors for whatever loot they could steal. In the novel, Bob Curtin asks them for identification to which one of them replied: “Badges, to god-damned hell with badges! [...]

    ThumbnailAuthor’s Note-This was supposed to be a column about the monthly meeting of the Sierra Club and its program. It developed into something else and I was powerless to stop it. “There’s good news tonight” *Look for the silver lining, whene’er a cloud appears in the blue Remember somewhere the sun is shining, and so the right [...]

    Thumbnail Author’s Note: my dear friend, Shayan Elahi, messaged me “It’s Thanksgiving. Write something.” Since we are both rabid fighters for social justice I’m sure that he expected me to write about the Simon Legree Big Box stores and their attitudes toward their employees. I do that kind of stuff every day and so do thousands of [...]

    Wendy, I would too. If he’s not revealing it he has a good reason. The Huffington Post Article has been circulating around. I read it yesterday, and it certainly confirms our suspicions but to the best of my knowledge he had nothing to do with it. I’ll probably see him this weekend and if so, [...]

    Grayson will not reveal anything to us. He was not allowed to record anything or take any kind of notes. There is a reason why these things are secret and even people with security clearances cannot access this information. By the way, much of what Grayson knows came from our efforts. Any leaked documents came [...]

    Thanks for filling in the gaps. I could have included much more but at almost 2000 words plus and hour and a half of videos I felt the article said what it had to and besides this is not a doctoral dissertation. Real people need to read and understand it. The purpose of all my [...]

    Things are not always as they seem …

    Back in April of 2011 I wrote an article called “Watch The Sound Of My Voice (Never Mind What My Hands Are Doing)” in which I alluded to our current president as the best Three Card Monte man or Pea in the Walnut Shell man I’ve ever seen. Why? [...]

    You have to love Al Capp. He was one of the most outspoken social critics of the mid twentieth century; he made no bones about it, and he did it through his art-the comics. He was the creator of Li’l Abner , the proverbial fish out of water and his comic strip viewed the world through the lens [...]

    “Comedy is a serious business. A serious business with only one purpose-to make you laugh” W.C.Fields If you’re of a certain age you remember the Hungry i, the legendary San Francisco club where a whole slew of comedians and musicians got their start. Founded in 1950 the club operated through the mid sixties until the political scene, [...]

    That is a vague area admittedly as to when he got out of his car, however it was raining at the time and I don’t believe he would willingly expose his phone to the rain just to report a suspicious person, but what really matters is that he did follow TM after being advised not [...]

    “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts……”   As You Like it by William Shakespeare   Prologue I’m often fascinated by the way life imitates art, or how art reflects life in many ways. Shakespeare’s brilliant discourse on the [...]

      The Time is now, and not tomorrow, to find that we can cure our sorrows……. The Time is Now©   by Jerry Waxman 1960 It’s the first line of a song I wrote 53 years ago on the death of Billie Holiday. I never finished the lyric. Perhaps someday I will. What’s that got to do with the [...]

    You could describe their behavior as psychopathic but this is groupthink on their level. Corporations are chartered to conduct business. They have no conscience. There’s nothing in incorporation laws that require a conscience. We, the public must be that agent.

    The backlash is happening in several countries around the world. It will take a little more time before it happens here since only 20% of our farms are family owned and not controlled by Corporate Farming. The backlash will have to come from the consuming public, and until we are sufficiently fed up the situation [...]

    Thumbnail It’s Alive! It’s Alive!!!!! Science does have its drawbacks. One of them is how we view scientists themselves. For several generations, because of science fiction stories, comic books and popular movies there is a perception out there of the “Mad Scientist” such as The Invisible Man , or Captain Marvel’s evil Dr. Sivana, or whatever evil scientists is [...]

    If you’re watching certain TV programs that treat grandma and gramps as doddering old folks then you need to read this. If the TV commercials that tout the new painless lubricated catheters via Chuck Woolery, or Joe Theismann hawking his new prostate pills, or Wilford Brimley with his sundry products, Fred Thompson or Robert Wagner begging [...]
