The Essence Of Han- Understanding the Korean Psyche

Just after the United States began the invasion of Afghanistan I wrote an essay describing the history of conflict there and the reality of the socio-political structure of Tribal peoples as opposed to nationalistic entities in establishing peace. Today, sixteen years later, the reservations I had then about our military success there have been […]

“Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect.”

Romans 12: 2

Perhaps it had something to do with my having been listening to the angst-ridden radio newscast prior […]

“The Slings and Arrows of Outrageous Fortune*”

We were bereft early in the morning of November 9th, 2016 as we are sure a lot of you were. And most of you know the reasons by now but with the publication of ‘What Happened’ we now know the culprits. First off and we never would have guessed this one, former President Barak Obama, […]

Happy Labor Day!

As Sam’s and Others move High Tech, “Why Not” a Dud that Seems a Wreck. My solution – do I Dare – to Fix a System called Healthcare.

Acting as “The Idea Proctor,” eliminate […]

Cornerstone Words

I’m gonna do a little preaching here. Of all the words that Traditional People favor, Respect is the one used the most. It implies many things: values, morality, character, compassion, commitment, relationship, and more that is unspoken, but understood. We think it is the foundation of Traditional Life. It begins with family and extended family, […]

Mourning The Loss Of A World

I’m gonna openly plagiarize, quote, paraphrase and generally butcher the work of John Trudell from his masterpiece, DNA. He said I could. Since much of that which I will quote from him was given during oral composition from speeches and talks he made, as well as the produced CD, the result is neither grammatically correct […]

The Art of the Deal

There are currently 2,188,900, that’s two million one hundred eighty eight thousand nine hundred people on the Federal payroll, not counting Postal employees and no one can answer the phone.
