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."


I should take advice from them?

We don't need to to have Trump just continue squatting in the White House. We need to get rid of Pence, then Trump. Given that Manafort was the one who engineered the choice of Pence as VP, and who used Pence as the point man in changing the Republican platform on Ukraine, and that Pence was the one who lied to cover for Mike Flynn, it's just a matter of time before he's gone.

If they actually are trying this, it will backfire spectacularly. This has given Pelosi cover to initiate a full blown impeachment investigation. That means that the DoJ will have to turn over the unredacted Mueller Report and ALL of the related grand jury materials. It also means that Treasury will have to hand over Trump's tax returns.

mcgeo52 comments on Aug 3, 2019:
I had a very interesting conversation with a friend about this yesterday. We both agree that astrology, as currently practiced is superstitious claptrap. However, he has been doing some research, and this is where it gets interesting. He has not finished the research to the point that he is ready to publish it, but I do have his permission to share the general outline. Basically he is working on the hypothesis that astrology, as originally practiced, was used more for predicting variations in climate. These would be caused by things such as solar flares. Those, in turn, would be caused by what would be analogous to tidal forces within the sun. the forces would be caused by the gravitational pull of the planets in much the same way that the moon exerts gravitational pull responsible for tides on earth. Studying the relative positions of the planets over time could possibly reveal the pattern in weather caused the sun's cycles driven by the gravitational forces of the planets, and allow for reasonably accurate prediction of climatic conditions. I find it an interesting hypothesis.

The G.I. Bill after WWII was basically free college for all who had served. I would consider that a large enough sample to be statistically significant in responding to your post. There were no limits on personal choice as long as the money was spent at a legitimate school. My father graduated with a degree in Sociology and went on to become one of the top engineers in the microelectronics field. A friend of the family majored in Psychology and went on to become the President of a University and then a member of the Texas Railroad Commission (you may not find that impressive, but they set the price for West Texas crude and have a huge impact on the world's economy). I have another friend who got a B.S. (I believe in Chemistry) and became a professional musician. But the real bottom line was that the value all the people who benefited directly from the G.I. Bill added to society because of their educations was one of the driving factors in the growth of the US economy in the '50s, '60s, and '70s.

For me... assassination of JFK.
mcgeo52 comments on Mar 11, 2019:
Sputnik. But for those who said the JFK assassination, here are my personal memories of that: I was living in Dallas, Texas on November 22,1963 and was in sixth grade at L. O.Donald Elementary School. My memories actually begin a few days before when the Dallas Independent School District announced that the only excused absences to go see the President would go to students who had a note saying that they were being accompanied by their parent. The announcement made it very clear that going to see the President with a legal guardian would not qualify as an excused absence. Even as a sixth grader I found this suspicious. There was only one student from my class who went to the parade. On the 22nd I arrived at school as usual approximately a half hour before my first class. I was a flag monitor.That means that I had the responsibility of raising the flags (American and Texas) on the pole in front of the school each morning and lowering them each afternoon. That was the windiest day of the school year. Larry Howell, the other monitor and my good friend since before first grade, and I had no problem getting the flags to the top of the pole, but the wind was blowing so hard that we could not pull the rope down enough to wrap around the cleat properly. We had to call Gary McFarland, a 7th grade Safety Patrol over for help, and he only managed to get the rope around the cleat by employing the 2” long 1” diameter dowel that was the handle of his Safety Patrol flag. After lunch I went to my fourth period math class in the southwest corner of the second floor. Sitting I the front corner by the door, I could not see the flag,but the students in the far corner of the room could, and they started giving me a hard time about what a bad job we had done that morning putting the flag up, since it was at least a flag’s height from the top of the pole. I distinctly remembered otherwise, just how high and tight it was. After walking across to the window and seeing what they were talking about, I told Mr. Owens, the teacher that I needed to go down and fix the problem. He said that I should go the office first and ask them about it. I thought this was a little strange, but I did as I was told. The secretary in the office asked why I was there and then disappeared for about a minute into the Principal’s office. She came back out and told me I should go back to class. About five minutes before the end of class I got called down to the office. I was taken into the Principal’s office. Mr. Breeding, the Principal, told me that the problem with the flag was that they had attempted to lower it to half-mast because the President and the Governor had been shot. He then told me that the President was dead but that, thankfully the Governor was still alive, ...
