  1. Nomenclature of Political Parties

    by , 07-10-2019 at 11:07 AM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    For some reason I started thinking about the Guelphs and Ghibellines, Tories, Know Nothings, Northern Leagues, and various other names that political parties have chosen. While some of the names were intended to show what the party was about, the stance of the party on issues and political preferences tend to evolve over time; thus the name might cease to be appropriate. And some of the names are just words that were applied to a political group.

    Perhaps the most interesting terms ...
  2. Empty Barrels

    Empty Barrels Make the Most Noise.

    For something else that I am writing, I have been thinking about evolution of humans. It is somewhat surprising that intelligence didnít increase in similar amounts to all people during evolution, but has been noted that there is considerable breadth in the range of "normal intelligence".

    This came to mind in regard to drunks, bums, petty criminals, the mentally ill, and the underclass, those who are outside the economy ...
  3. Trump's Depression

    I was thinking about how the U.S. economy would go from the upswing that Trump takes credit for to the Even Greater Depression that his trade war will bring on.

    Trump should be separated from the claims of strong economy, and he could be thrown out of office and not have a chance of re-election, and he may have undone himself with the additional tariffs. I wasn't expecting the stock market to tank for a considerable time, as it happened during the 1920's. I'm not the only one who ...

  4. Minding Business

    by , 05-25-2019 at 02:06 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I sometimes find myself wondering why someone isnít minding his or her own business. And I usually to do that, but The Valley Advocate got me to do otherwise. This preference hasnít shown up in my blog often, but blogs are for people to vent their opinions. The Feature Article in the paper was about physician assisted suicide, which is an excellent example of people taking responsibility for themselves. Then when I opened the paper the first heading I saw was an opinion piece about ďhealthy food ...
  5. Edited History

    by , 05-03-2019 at 04:00 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    For some reason, earlier today I recalled a couple of events that have already been edited out of the history of the 21st century. Unfortunately, I do not have archival information about either event, so many people wonít believe that they happened. In the end, I found that these items havenít been deleted, just ignored and pushed out of the generally available record.

    Neither item was widely reported when it happened, but there were reports online. The first one was when in the Summer ...
