New Year Resolutions

Here we are with just a few days remaining in 2010. Does anyone really want to make any New Year Resolutions?
I find the best thing to do is to not make any resolutions. That way you won't get depressed one you start to break them one by one. Or maybe just make resolutions you have a good chance of keeping.
Here is my spur of the moment list of resolutions I can probably keep most of the time.
I resolve not to kill anyone unless needed to do in self defense.
I resolve to continue to work and pay taxes.
I resolve to continue to voice my off the wall opinions with the hope of not offending but getting a laugh.
I resolve to continue to believe most people, including politicians, are usually decent people.
I resolve to continue to doubt most experts in science, economics, education and religion because it is up to them to try to prove their points without needing me to simply believe in them because they claim to be experts.
I resolve to finish my latest vampire book, And God Created Vampires, before summer 2011 and get it published by hook or by crook.
Now it's time for you to make your new year resolution and offer just one suggestion for you. Please by all my books in print or as ebooks and get all your friends to do the same.
Happy New Year!

Julian Assange and WikiLeaks

Whatever you think of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, the unprecedented
campaign by the U.S. government and corporate America to silence the site
is a chilling assault on free speech and a free media.

WikiLeaks has not been charged with a crime related to the release of
documents, yet the site's access to the Internet has been disrupted and
major efforts are underway to block credit card processing of donations to
keep the site running.

It's not surprising that the U.S. government and some of our nation's
largest corporations would want to take down a site that provides a
powerful new way to expose official lies and pierce their veil of secrecy.
But if we don't stand up and beat back this powerful assault on WikiLeaks,
we will put our democratic institutions at risk and deliver a blow to
human rights work around the world.

I just signed a petition asking the U.S. government and corporate America
to protect our democracy and the rule of law by ending the crackdown on

I hope you will too. It's easy to take action at the link below.
