Just this guy, you know. Extra credit identifying that one.

You could describe me as a recovering Southern Baptist. Surprisingly, given my background, my politics tend toward progressive.

I am a vegetarian and don't drink, smoke, or do drugs. I'm not much into movies, but do enjoy live theater. I am a singer/songwriter, sometimes recording engineer, and also host a weekly open mic in Long Beach.

Other hobbies include law (I am not an attorney) and graphic arts.

Professionally, I have programmed computers, developed web sites, and developed and used cutting edge technology marketing.

Guess I'm just your basic 21st century Renaissance dude.

And as my late friend, Roz Larman, once told her radio audience, "All this, ladies, and he cooks, too."

What we should remember about 9/11 is that Tower 7 was not hit by a plane. Nor was the Pentagon. We should remember that 9/11 was used as an excuse to lie us into two wars against people who had nothing to do with 9/11. The real perpetrators of 9/11 have not been brought to justice.

Can all 'why' questions be translated into 'how' questions?
mcgeo52 comments on Sep 9, 2019:
Let's use the example of, "Why should I eat my vegetables?" Translating that directly into "How should I eat my vegetables?" completely changes the nature of the question to the point that the two have almost nothing to do with each other. While, "How is eating my vegetables good for me?" a possibly workable translation, it may not get an answer that would make sense to the person who asked the question meaning, "Why should I eat these particular vegetables, which have been overcooked to the point they have minimal nutritional value and even less flavor?" Translation almost always depends on context. Another example would be, "Why should I go on living?" Translate that so the question and answer make sense to someone like my grandfather when he was 92 years old and said, "I've outlived all of my enemies, almost all of my friends, burred two wives, and can't live in my own home any more. Why should I go on living?" P.S. Less than a week later I was at my grandfather's funeral.

1. 1938 Dymaxion 2.This is a 1941 Packard 90 Open Top 8 door Tour Bus
mcgeo52 comments on Sep 8, 2019:
The Packard reminds me of of a funny incident when I was in high school. A family two doors down from us had a son a year older than me, a daughter a year younger, and a son two years younger. The mom owned a Checker sedan. One Friday she took it in for service and they told her they needed a part and the car would not be ready until Monday or Tuesday so they would provider her with a loaner. When the older son found out that the loaner turned out to be one of the eight door Checkers he organized a group date. He and his girlfriend, the sister and he boyfriend, another couple who were friends with the sister, and my girlfriend and I all went out in the Checker for the eveniing. Just imagine being the poor kid working at the Jack-in-the-Box taking our order from the drive-through. Fun times.

mcgeo52 comments on Sep 5, 2019:
I would have to cite two points: The first point would be the election of Nixon in 1968. I choose this for two reasons: 1) It marks the beginning of Lee Atwater's "Southern Strategy" (i.e., running a racist campaign using dog whistle comments). 2) it was the first in a string of Republican Presidential election victories based on treason (Nixon's deal with Hanoi, Reagan's deal with Tehran, and Trump's deal with Moscow). The second point would be the publication of the Powell Memo on August 23, 1971. That memo was basically a declaration of war on the middle class by, as FDR called them, the monied interests.
Thinking about I guess.

He will try other things to distract from that fact. What the Democrats need to do is collect a list of words and phrases that trigger Trump. We know that "absurd" is definitely one of them. The whoever is debating Trump needs to drop those words into the debate and watch him melt down on national TV.

Relationships never die a natural death, they are murdered by ego, attitude and ignorance.
mcgeo52 comments on Aug 24, 2019:
I think of the relationships that I have left behind, and some of them were simply outgrown. It wasn't a matter of ego, or attitude, or ignorance. It was more a case of we had grown apart. And it was not necessarily that we had parted physically. I moved from Texas to upstate NY in 8th grade, and to California in 12th grade. Ten years after college I reconnected with an old classmate from NY; the relationship was still there. A couple of years after that I reconnected with a friend from Dallas that I had not seen for almost 20 years. It was like finding a long lost brother. Then there are people who live within a half hour of here that I used to have a relationship with, but rarely see any more because we have both outgrown whatever it was that we had in common to begin with.
