  1. Carbon Dioxide Red Herring

    by , 09-27-2019 at 09:11 AM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I find it annoying to read or hear assertions that human activity is causing climate change especially when the people making the assertions never even heard of the Milkovitch cycles and donít even know what makes some gases "greenhouse gases" while other gases do not create the greenhouse effect. Many articles on the subject give the impression the the author does not understand what he is writing.

    One item that is less prevalent now than it was a few years ago is the ...

  2. Fighting Propaganda

    by , 09-23-2019 at 07:20 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    Has everything become politicized? It appears that there is no scientific information regarding climate change. Everything is either alarmist or denying everything. I realized years ago that the alarmists were alarmists and propagandists, and I found some information about the matter that was based in science, rather than in ideology, but today I looked for scientific information and found only one journal article about solar cycles, and I only found that because the authors are being attacked by ...

There are plenty of reasons why the political and economic landscapes became what they are now, and it partly happened during a period when boomers dominated to political and economic worlds, but it started and most of the damage was done earlier, and some of the present situation is just negative aspects of good things. Even the neo-NAZI aspects of Trumpís political ...
  4. Struggle for Civil and Political Rights

    by , 08-20-2019 at 01:59 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I have gotten the impression that American schools do not teach Civics very well. There seem to be U.S. citizens who think that the people should do what the government says, and that the Duty of Civil Disobedience is not a responsibility that Americans should take seriously. The matter of how citizens should act in a republic has a great deal formal philosophical literature behind it, and its origin go back before the origin of organized government. I could go back to Platoís Republic and some ...

  5. Christmas In Fallujah poem \ Criticism , analysis and translation

    Christmas In Fallujah
    Itís evening in the desert
    Iím tired and Iím cold
    But I am just a soldier
    I do what I am told
    إنه المساء في الصحراء
    أنا متعب وجسمي يقشعر
    ولكني جندي فحسب ...
