website security and reliability

In February I changed hosting services. That took a lot more learning than I expected. It also had a large number of failures before my perseverance finally resolved the myriad details that had to be addressed exactly so. Even before I finally achieved the reliability in presentation and fluid ability to post new articles to my sites, I began getting messages suggesting I really, really ought to convert to the more secure access offered by “HTTPS”, as opposed to unsecured plain HTTP. Enter, once again, more details that I did not know and had to learn about. Today I think my websites are reliably, consistently up on HTTPS with improved security for thee and me. To take advantage of that, […]

sorry for the absence

I converted my websites to add security for my visitors. It went well on 3 out of 5. This one did not go so well. Thus I have been unable to post any news or commentary for a while. I finally got help from my hosting service to get back up. Back to my regularly scheduled programming. ๐Ÿ™‚

driven … by what?

From Basics of Resistance by Claire Wolff and Kit Perez: “Every person is driven, at the core, by a deep-seated need. An individual may crave acceptance, love, power, money, recognition, honor, or something else. In many cases, people don’t know themselves well enough to know what their primal drive is, or they tend to see their drive as solely positive. They might think their drive is “to serve” or to “stand up for liberty,” but these aren’t primal drives; those desires are driven by underlying primal drives. To reach the core, we need to ask ourselves why, enough times to that everything is stripped down to basic elements.” Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Hmmm, I’m not sure it is […]

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Alfred E. Neuman Those who see chemtrails, Potomac Swamp corruption, organized evil, criminal international bombings, central bank theft, pharmaceutical poisoning, looming WWIII, false flag EMP, and other assaults you read about here are accused of being constantly negative, unhappy. Click the video button to the left for an important musical accompaniment to this article. Why should the ignorant have all the fun? I grew up in a world where the phrase “Fat, Dumb and Happy” was okay to say, we all knew what it meant, and understood there were times to choose one attitude over the other. I ‘run in those circles’, among aware friends, and find we as a class are more at peace than those we consider oblivious. […]

website traffic

I have not looked for a long time at the statistics maintained by my web hosting service. Wow! I am very pleasantly surprised … impressed even. Thank you for stopping by. Your visits to my pages are both rewarding and inspiring. I’ll keep up my end of the deal as best I can. December 2017 statistics: Average number of visits per day = 372 Average number of pages viewed per day = 1314 Average website hits per day = 1593 Over 500 of those visits lasted more than a half hour. As I said, I have not been looking at these stats for a long time. I had not noticed the growth. It now is unsurprising that my websites got […]

reaching down deep

I was a tiny guy in high school; had more or less stopped growing in 5th grade. But Dad taught me to play tennis … well enough to be third on the tennis team out of 3,000 kids in my high school. Amusingly, the big, muscle-bound, power-lifter coach who drew the short straw and had to “coach” the tennis team took turns playing against all of us. I was the only one who beat him … because he expected his opponents to follow his coaching instructions while I was rebellious enough to put the ball where he didn’t expect it… over and over … he never could catch on. It wasn’t important to me, but tennis came easy enough and […]

my pleasure

Visitors to my website might assume I enjoy political activism, truth telling, railing against The Man and such. Not so much. I hate bullies. I do what I can to thwart them. But it is not for fun. Knowing who is doing what to destroy us and the Earth is the first step in fighting them off. I don’t know if we can win, but we most certainly cannot without a whole lot more people knowing what they are up to, and who they are. That is my chosen role. Again, not that I like it. More that it chose me, or I was chosen to play it. Now what I LIKE TO DO. I built this. I designed it. […]

2006 Idaho governor candidate debate

Seeing Ron Paul championing my main 2006 campaign theme a decade later inspired me to look for this video. I couldn’t find it at the PBS website, so I uploaded a copy I had saved years ago. Debating in front of television cameras live to a state-wide audience was a terrifying to do, but probably the best performance of my political career. My biggest campaign theme was liberal tax credits for scholarships to private schools equal to a maximum of half what taxpayers spend on government schools. We would save money while liberating education. It was a good idea then. It still is.
