Scary John Boehner

In laughter there is sometimes a trace of fear. For those on the receiving end of Boehner’s draconian polities, fear is no laughing matter.

These posts were written in anticipation of disasters to come.


Boehner: Chain Smoking, High Living, National Menace

Boehner: Chain Smoker, Deluxe Traveler, National Menace. If I was central casting, I would not think twice. Boehner fills the bill for a chain-smoking, high living national menace. And it isn’t funny. It’s scary

I cannot restrain her. She is loony as a drunken lark. Speaking of drunks, she is accusing John Boehner of crimes worse than those the Army has leveled at Bradley Manning. Whatever shall we do?

4 Posts on Food Safety

These posts will not save you from the dangers of random poisoning and other mishaps that accompany the ingestion of food as an inevitable consquence of our need for nourishment. But they do carry a warning or two.

In a world going global, food safety requires regulation. In a world awash in oil, we need to think about the relation of food and energy

Radiated Food

Mildred Purse goes for the grit in the headlines, far beyond the typical news-gatherer’s ken. She finds this disturbing piece of important information and thanks Abba that Greenpeace is keeping us honest while everyone else lies.

Schmooze My Profile Page

This is an open invitation to all to schmooze my  profile at Yahoo Contributor Network aka Associated Content.


Because it represents a model for anyone who believes as I do that eventually most people will be paid via the Web and that most of what is transacted will be transacted on line. In such a world the only way to get paid is via a system of micropayment that is keyed to factors that are largely impossible to calibrate on a blog. I moved to Associated content for precisely this reason.

But it was hardly the only or most important reason.

I wanted a place where I could, over time, organize my work and make it easily searchable. There is no better platform for this than my  profile page.

I also made the move to gain traffic for my posts. I would estimate that over all traffic has doubled.

This is not a huge advance relatively speaking, but it is progress.

So please schmooze my profile and leave a comment here to tell me what you think.
