This doesn't help anything
I follow people I agree and do not agree with on Twitter. There are even some who are aligned with most of my beliefs whom I follow who, honestly, are in nutjob land on some things. There is one in particular who goes way too far denouncing homosexuality. “The average lifespan of a lesbian is 47 years old - parents keep this in mind” I don’t exactly know what God thinks about...

Lenny Dykstra Vouches for Charlie Sheen →
Perhaps the best “business” move Dykstra’s ever made. Seriously. He needs the money that bad.
Food for Thought
I’ve been putting this together for about a week now… We don’t allow the military to have a position “equal” in our government when compared to our elected officials. All three branches of government (state and federal) are led by those either through election or appointment by elected officials (in the case of federal and some state judges). The “civilian...
Conservatives push GOP, get proposal for $100... →
Let’s put aside the issue of what gets cut (and what doesn’t) aside for a second. The ability for the fiscal conservatives w/in the House GOP majority to make this happen, after the party leadership first proposed a somewhat deceptive reducition plan, is an indication of what’s going on and where momentum is headed.
Latest at ASPA Blog: What do we really know? →
The ASPA Blog just posted by latest submission. Does the public really care about what public administrators share? Better yet, should they? Perhaps, we should realize that what matters most is that we respect what they care about.

I wrote this post on Squintworks this morning in preparation for a discussion I’m leading for a B2B group on Wednesday. This is the first of two parts, the second of which will get more into the idea and development of “Immutable Laws.” This concept is a more personally-assertive extension of what we’ve known to be “core values.” I found it mentioned in the...
The truth about "farming" →
Few people today talk about “giving it all up” and settling into the “quiet life” of farming. They do, however, talk about the need to grow their own food, as if the act of breaking one’s back, toiling in a garden to avoid a couple trips to the grocery story, would somehow save the world from a perceived death spiral of consumerism. Gardening and farming are noble...
Mandated "Localism" anyone? →
Nice little example of how government actions don’t always reflect the assumed intentions of the words. Local news coverage is an ideal goal, but should it be facilitated through Federal intervention?
Immutable Laws & Foreign Affairs
The crisis in Egypt will likely serve as the tipping point for a critical reassessment of US foreign policy, especially its practices of alliances in hostile parts of the world. The current “enemy of my enemy” model no longer works in a world far more transparent and connected than that of World War II. These alliances (like ours w/Mubarak) might have yielded short term gains, but they...
