I spent my formative years, high school and military service, outside of the US in the South Pacific (Navy Brat/Sailor).
Back in the sixties and seventies, communication was not like it is today. Normal mail, averaged 22 days by ship. No radio or TV broadcasts were “live from America”. Non-local newspapers and magazines also appeared to fall in the 22 day delivery bracket.
Because of that, we meditated more on the news, instead…
The Cornell Alliance for Science published the following study, which is being discussed on many of the main street media.  You won’t hear about this on right wing news sites, such as Breitbart. ,
CORONAVIRUS MISINFORMATION: Quantifying sources and themes in the COVID-19 ‘infodemic’
“The study concludes that Donald Trump was likely the largest driver of the COVID-19 misinformation “infodemic.”
The World Health Organization has stated that a parallel “infodemic” of misinformation is undermining efforts to combat the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. …
A copy of a letter to members of the California legislature about Manufactured Home Community Rent Increases. Unfortunately I don't expect much of a response, given that there is more hot-air dedicated to the Affordable Housing Crisis than actual effort to do something that would have a positive effect.

I am the president of the Home Owners Association at the Mobil Country Club manufactured home community in Rancho Cordova, CA.
Starting in the fall of 2018, the HOA initiated an annual…
I am so tired of being lectured for my lack of concern for life because I am not in rabid support of the so-called Pro-Life movement. Pro-Life should not be just Anti-Abortion, yet that is how many in the movement appear to see it.
My problem is simple. I believe all life is precious, yet many in the pro-life movement only seem to worry about protecting children before they are born. They seem to be forgetting about them after they are born. For example, as a society we don’t seem to care as much as we should about the abuse…
Listening to all the discussions about wearing masks being a violation of civil rights brought me back 50 years to all the similar complaints about seat belts.
However, in this case, the risks are reversed.
The arguments for seat belt laws were based on the protection of the person wearing the seat belt. You could argue that you have the right to put yourself at risk and even claim the risks are minimal.

The current Affordable Housing Crisis and the Homeless Problems will continue to get worse unless we do something different. Yet, at every level of the political spectrum, politicians continue to focus on repeating the same proposed solutions over and over again, in spite of the fact that they have failed to produce new results over the past thirty years.
In addition, that is exactly what major industry leaders are telling us to do and that is what Frank Rolfe and his investment partners are self-servingly advising others to do.
As Christians, we need to remember that God IS and that He is universal in His dealings with all of His children. Do not assume that the things you see around you are part of an isolated event. The safer assumption is that He is dealing with the Universal Church in the same manner that He deals with your local spiritual community.
I monitored the Catholic Charismatic Renewal around the world for almost twenty years. What I saw clearly demonstrated that God deals with His people in a consistent manner. The problems we share are universal — disagreements, human jealousy…
As a leader in the Navy and later as a manager in the corporate world, these were the rules that I developed for doing more than just surviving.
1. Never underestimate the power of a draft memo.
How often have you attempted to get management’s attention, but your recommendations fall on deaf ears? While working for NASA I discovered the secret to getting attention and cooperation.
Post a draft memo for “review” by your team and management. Those memos will take on a life of their own. …
