Tax the Rich

Not really. They, like everyone else, is already being taxed.
But those Democrats, Liberals and Progressives who are always yelling the rich should pay more seem to be avoiding the obvious solution.
Why not ask the millionaire news reporters, senators, member of congress, actors, singers, musicians, football, basketball and baseball players to stop seeking ways to legally reduce their taxes and pony up, put their money where their mouths are and donate most of their money to the IRS, thus reducing taxes for the "little people" they claim to care deeply about.

Why I Prefer Belief.

This may sound a bit strange but I believe there are a lot of reasons to favor believing over knowing.
Believing in its truest and most basic form is admitting you don't know. It's more humble to say you believe than to say you know.
Believing is mostly about feeling. Believing is warm. Knowing is cold.
Sometimes people will say they know something when they should be saying they believe something.
Believing implies risk. You could be wrong. But when you say you know when in fact you don't know, the risk is greater. Claiming to know, then learning you were wrong can be devastating in ways believing seldom is. Believing then learning you were wrong hurts but is not as devastating because your heart was in the right place.
No one knows whether or not there truly is a God. Believing or not believing are the only two choices. A positive belief will always trump a negative belief and the only thing worse than a negative belief is claiming to know what you don't know.
Believe in love. Believe in life. Believe in yourself and the people you love. Believe you are loved.

Free vampire book

I recently published the Second Edition of my first vampire novel - The Dancing Valkyrie.
This new edition is slightly updated with corrections to a few minor typos.
The printed book is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and many other online book sellers, and has a suggested list price of $11.99.
It is also available as an ebook from Kindle where it has a suggest list price of $2.99.
But wait! For a limited time, now through Oct. 12, 2017, the Kindle edition is available for Free!

Global warming primer

Call it Global Warming. Call it Climate Change. Call it whatever you want to call it but don't be fooled by the those advocating something must be done to stop it and save the world from a climate disaster.
Al Gore, the Pope and Bill McKibben will wag their fingers and flap their mouths to warn you of the dangers and tell you it is all your fault. But it isn't.
They are correct about one thing while being wrong about just about everything else they say.
They are correct when they say humans are the primary cause of Global Warming/Climate Change. They are wrong when they try to convince you that you can solve the problem by "going green" and by supporting their push to stop mining coal, drilling for oil and natural gas, and trading in your car for a bicycle.
None of those things will accomplish anything so long as the human population continues to grow.
More and more humans create the demand for more and more energy and that demand far outstrips the energy that can be supplied by wind turbines and solar panels. Perhaps even more important is the fact that more and more humans destroy planet Earth for all animal and plant life.
Adding more and more humans to the planet is like adding more and more people to a sinking ship while claiming to save everyone by simply bailing water with tea cup from the sinking ship.
Solar panels and wind mills are the tea cups that will not save planet earth.
The only solution is to stop and then reverse the number of humans on the planet.

Black lives matter

Black do lives matter but the questions is - matter to whom?
Apparently, black lives don't matter to many blacks who are busy shooting each other, dealing drugs to each other, getting black women pregnant and then walking away and failing to support the women and the children they father.
Just saying "Black Lives Matter" and marching with signs that say the same thing will not accomplish anything except to make those who do the chanting and the marching feel good about themselves.
