The United States Government sent me an e-mail. Because it was unwanted, it's spam. My tax dollars at work. It makes me feel so -- loved -- to be getting ObamaCare spam.
The interesting part is that I not only never began to enroll for subsidized government healthcare, I never would. I realize that "never" is a dangerous word to use, but I'm using it here.

The theme song to the 1992 feature film, The Bodyguard, was the highest grossing of all time. It was the apex of the late Whitney Houston's singing career. Quite a bit of the movie was filmed at Falling Leaf on the shore of Lake Tahoe, NV/CA (the lake bounds both California - up hill from Sacramento and Nevada - up hill from Reno), which is nothing if not a picturesque backdrop to film a love story.
Though both Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston were slapped by critics for less than sterling acting, the film was a huge commercial success.
This blog has many elements and depending on your interests, may pique your imagination...or not. I urge you to be unreasonable. Reasonable people adapt themselves to the world. The unreasonable persist in trying to adapt the world to themselves, therefore all progress depends on unreasonable people. The more unreasonable you are, the more likely you are to enjoy this blog. All men dream, but not equally.
If you're a socialist or a Marxist, you'll find that I poke fun at your absurd notions of "good government" on a regular basis. So you might not wish to follow this blog because you'll be offended.
John Locke said, "One unerring mark of the love of truth is not entertaining any proposition with greater assurance than the proofs it is built upon will warrant." I like what Locke said. We can't theorize without adequate information because when we do we inevitably twist facts to suit theories rather than theories to suit facts. In this blog and in my life, I try to maintain this perspective.
Either you believe in our essential spark of shared divinity, or you succumb to our human insecurity. Either way your conscience lets you slice it, the main thing is to earnestly do what is right at the time.
Today, I balance work and play as much as anyone can. All things remaining equal, play is more important. Life is short - it's important to make every day count for something, if only to yourself.
I'm a former tinker/tailor/soldier/sailor who has now decided that maybe it really wasn't all done for nothing.
