A Republican/Conservative is much too often a pimple on the a$s of progress, while a Democrat or Liberal is often asking you for tax dollars for something which is totally un-needed!

To adhere to one of these two political positions is a travesty to human logic!

The only rational alternative is to be a moral PRAGMATIST, meaning you take EVERY issue independently, and then you support or oppose it on its merits alone!!!

I am 67 years old - and part Baby-boomer I suppose - and I find the many mysteries of life more and more confusing as I go along and evermore get rapidly older.

For instance:

When a rather large stone of thrown into a small pond of water, it makes a rather tall ripple in the liquid at first.

The ripple continues to grow larger and larger in circumference as it expands outward, but the size of the tallness of the ripple becomes smaller and smaller until it disappears from view completely.

However, all of the civilized history of mankind seems to be exactly the same as the previously mentioned ripple made by the stone falling into the pond!

Whether it be the Mongols, the Chinese, the Arabs, the British, the Spaniards, the French, the Germans, the Soviets, or the what-ever, they have all fallen from their very high perch of social domination at the time of their power.

My question I want everyone to think about today is: Are the American corporate powers which control our federal government beginning to do this very same thing to the United States, while much of the rest of the civilized world is moving scientifically and/or socially ahead of this nation?

The union members will go where ever there are employment opportunities, so changes in the fuel we use isn’t going to make very much difference for them - they will just be employed by solar power plants, by wind power plants, by ethanol powered automobiles, by ….–but the white collar employees, and the many stock shareholders, they will lose a little bit, so in America at least, they are going to spend millions and millions of dollars supporting Congressional candidates of BOTH political parties to STOP industrial and/or technical advancements – that is, IF changes in the electoral process are not quickly forthcoming!.

In the meantime, this nation falls further and further behind much of the rest of the world in terms of newly modern technology!!!

And that brings me to a final question: WILL THE VOTERS OF THE UNITED STATES CHANGE THIS?

I was just listening to CNN's scientific news, and a new part of the atom was just discovered by the Super Collider in France and Switzerland (I forgot what scientists now call this new piece!)
when it should be equal given the "Big Bang."

Anyway, it would explain why the universe is expanding by INCREASING its rate of speed, and why different sections of the universe are moving away from each other at different rates of speed

No light can escape may escape from the universe you know, but this new piece of the atom would seem to indicate there are OTHER universes!!!

This would go a long way in explaining the different sections of this universe moving away from where the "Big Bang" took place at different speeds, and it would also explain why the galaxies of the university are increasing their speed rather than decreasing their speed as gravity would indicate!

The Presidential election is now just several short months away, and many of the average voting Americans are beginning to pay more and more attention to what each of the two candidates are saying.

And just “What?” are they saying about the future of the United States?

Well, President Obama has said very little about what he has accomplished in the last 3 ½ years, but as your may see from the web page on the Internet at:< http://search.mywebsearch.com/mywebsearch/GGm ... ; he really has done a great deal!(Long, I know!)

It goes from the recent auto bailout saving Detroit and Central America literally millions and millions of jobs, to the ever growing popularity of the just enacted medical health legislation!

But this is just the beginning, as Obama has accomplished much more in the short time - 3 ½ years - he has been in office, than George Bush did in his total of eight years!

But he has just never advertised this fact – until now that is!

Mitt Romney on the other hand, started as the Governor of Massachusetts a state run medical health plant for the state, and it is working very well with most of the state’s population now able to afford and see a medical doctor when one is needed.

Also on the other hand, today the TEA Party Republicans are very much against literally any government having anything to do with medical healthcare for the people of this great nation, and so now is Mitt Romney who is running for the Presidency of America!

President Obama literally saved millions and millions of jobs in the American auto industry – in fact, he saved the whole auto industry itself – by giving them a temporary government loan over the objections of Mitt Romney and the TEA Party Republicans, who both said,“Let the American auto industry go broke”!

The TEA Party Republicans, and supposedly now Mitt Romney, are in favor of eliminating Social Security, they are in favor of eradicating Medicaid and Medicare, they are in favor of eliminating …..! In fact, they often say that they want to make the federal government much, much smaller.

But they are in favor of making very sure that every pregnancy goes to full term, and that the federal government will enact and control this legislation! A smaller federal government though!!!???

I am definitely NOT a traditional Democrat BY ANY MEANS: however, I ABSOLUTELY deplore the nonsense being literally preached by the TEA Party Republicans and the presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and I hope and trust that this guest editorial WAKES YOU UP TO JUST WHAT THE 99% ARE REALLY FIGHTING TO KEEP!!!

I had an interesting dream the other night!

The regular Republican are being beaten in primaries by Ding-bat Tea Party Republicans. Others are not running because of the Ding-bats - Senator Olympia Snow for example.

Most of the House of Representative districts are now "jerry-mandered" such that a certain party candidate of a particular party will almost always win, no matter who the other party runs against them. The losing candidate usually gets about 40 to 45% of the vote, however.

What would happen, though, if the threatened by the Ding-bat Tea Party Republicans - the regular Republicans who currently holds any office - were to join the Democratic Party with their 40+% of the vote. Add to this the support of the Regular Republicans, and they would probably win over the Ding-bats!!!

Just a dream of course, I know, but ....!

Gosh, now that there has been another massacre in Colorado with a semi-automatic, I supposed that the National Rifle Association edict to allow all American citizens to have a concealed weapon, and/or a semi-automatic, will be severly citicized again.

What would we do without having a semi-automatic rifle to kill badly needed deer and bear with?

What would we do were it not legal anymore to have semi-automatics rifle, and we would no longer have the highest murder by gun rate in the entire civilized world, as well as being the only country allowing the general public to have these assault weapons???

Boy, I'm so happy we are so advanced and civilized in the United States today!!!

I'll bet that Barack Obama will win the General Election this November by, at the VERY LEAST, 10%age points!

The Congress will become heavily Democratic, the Senate will have close to, or more than, 60 Democratic votes.

All across this country, at every level of government, this coming election will be compared with the Goldwater debuckle of 1964!

And then in January when everyone takes their seat .... well, "Oh boy"!!!

Another current poll today has Obama ahead of Romney - and on a national basis - by 7%age points!

However, FOX has a poll today, and they have Obama ahead by 9%age points!!!

You got a 'Raymond/watchdog' and goes by several other names like (flave-Flave-Jeniffer) up there that stalks little girls at walmarts and POSTS that they are "HOOKERS" and their mother and father are no better. Go to the Holdenville Topic in Oklahoma and read some of the stuff he posts and his I.P. is from Bellevue, Washington. This jerk is sick in the worst way and all females are "hoochies". Dr.JEDunn you are all over the place up there maybe you know of the sicko? Also any little 14 year old gets knocked up so she can get DHS and have more kids to get more money and they don't know who the fathers are. Very sick sick poster.

Well, I guess the true facts about what the Republican TEA Party Ding-bats truly think about the civil rights of all the American women are coming to the for front, despite their dire attempts to keep some of them quiet!

The Republican TEA Party candidate from Missouri, running for Democratic Senator Claire McHaskels seat, is very clear evidence of what I am attempting to point out.

The Romney/Ryan campaign is now full of misstatements and/or actual lies about what President Obama is trying to do, and/or what he has actually accomplished in the two years he has had any support from the now Republican Ding-bat TEA Party House of Representatives!

The spread of percentage points between Romney and Obama has increased several points since the Democratic National Convention.

Now I wonder what the American voting public will focus upon: less people newly employed during the month of August, or the national unemployment rate going down from 8.3% to 8.1%.

We have "Freedom of Speech" in America, but it is against the law to yell "FIRE" when there is none in a crowded movie theatre, and you will be prosecuted for yelling it.

However, it is apparently "ok" to write a book which one KNOWS will inflame a large international religious group!

This country MUST make its law, in this regard, similar to its "FIRE" laws!!!
