I live in a modest home in a modest neighborhood, but there a few things about my home of which I am particularly proud.  After many years of trying to mow a wet patch of lawn I gave up and now have a “marsh garden.” Standing in front of our personal marsh are The Bards […]

I have formed a band called The Bards of Balance.  In the past two weeks we released our album, Restoring Balance, for digital download.  I know it’s available at CD Baby already and should be available at all audio distribution venues such as iTunes soon. We also did our first college gig at the Torrington […]

I presume this writer is a Democrat. If so I presume that he heard the proceedings at the Convention in L. A. If so he must have heard all the “yapping” (Ghost of F.D.R.) that we should have another Franklin D. Roosevelt. Now we need that like we need “a hole in the head.” I […]

Since I now have a web site for Wilderness Backpacking Trails my wilderness photography will be provided there.  However, in my mind Sunday morning is the right time for pictures, and I’ll start a new picture feature on this site called “Sense of Place.”  We are a species that feels intensely a sense of belonging.  […]

As a media person Mark Levin has the resources of corporate media to reinforce misinformation (principle #8).  His opinions become part of an entertainment package that gets echoed until one wonders who could possibly think differently.  As a media person he is trusted by certain segments of the population (principle #9), a trust that would […]

The previous entry revealed that Mark Levin’s primary distortion of information in his book Liberty and Tyranny was creating the impression that a paternal (Statist) Supreme Court began with the New Deal.  In reality it began in 1800 and distorting this fact has implications for what is conveyed as paternal.   This entry refers to my […]

There is a Biblical saying that you can’t serve both God and Mammon.  At this point I can use the ten misinformation principles to summarize who/what Mark Levin really serves instead of Liberty.  There is more left to the book, and perhaps I’ll come back to it occasionally in the future, but here is a […]

The length of this letter calls for another two-pager.  You will note from the date that it is during the 1960 election year.  It was seldom hard to figure out where Pop stood on things. Norfolk, Conn. July 23, 1960 Mr. Harold Lufkin, V.P. Newton Mfg. Co., Newton, Iowa. Dear Mr. Lufkin: Am sending your […]

I would like to close this segment for Mark Levin’s chapter “On Federalism” by first complimenting the U. S. Chamber of Commerce.  They have received criticism from me in the past, and are about to receive some more with this entry.  Yet they are objecting to the ridiculous legislation presented on behalf of banking by […]
