  1. Improving Life in America

    by , Today at 10:39 AM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    Some people were commenting on the size of the military budget of the United States of America. I simply agreed that it is rather large, but I thought a little more about it and realized that the more than six hundred billion was enough to pay attention to, and it is even enough to do something with. As we all know, the U.S.A. is more than twenty trillion in debt. The military budget isnít enough to eliminate the debt, but it might get us on the way, but not directly. We should take half of the ...

In a general sense this is not a new thing; people have been complaining about the lowering of standards of behavior for thousands of years, but ...
  4. Rule of Law

  5. My First Non-depressed Christmas

    So far at least.
    Hello. Long time no see
    Why so long?
    Several reasons. Laziness mostly.
    I decided to drop in so that you know I'm alive.
    One quick note. In the New Year of 2019 (the first week or two) my computer broke. Still don't know why.

It wasn't designed for that level of ...
