Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

The Why

with 7 comments

I blog because I can reach many more people here in a minute than I normally see in a year on my little patch of earth in the country.  I work for myself, so I can to a large extent control my time.  I search out things the public should know, and which mainstream media won’t report on, because most people are too busy to read and dig.

I am an independent in every sense of the word, politically and personally, and I count myself fortunate to live in a country which still allows individualism — but for how much longer?  That’s up to you, and me.  Can you help?

  1. Hi, I want to start following this blog but don’t know where to sign up. Just add a widget on the right. I write a quirky blog on eclipses and their significance to Obama, his current administration and world affairs. You can read more at: http://nudeprovacateuse.wordpress.com/. I’ll be back!

  2. I don’t do Facebook or Twitter, one because of security issues, the other because of my unscheduled schedule — but there is a line for an RSS feed — just scroll down below the tag cloud to the Meta section.
    I thoroughly enjoyed reading your post about Obama the overachiever, especially the
    synastry chart. Broaden your acquaintance to include some Special Forces guys — they are all total overachievers, but their stress level is generally lower than the average Joe’s. I’m fortunate enough to have known 3 of these American gems very well for many decades, and have observed that people who don’t know their backgrounds would never guess it in a million years.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I’m still stopping by. I get a good chuckle and eye opener every time I read. I don’t agree with you on everything but I understand your POV. For sure, more people would surface and comment if you placed a bio or picture somewhere. Don’t get me wrong, this bland sort of touch works. Keep up the good work and I’m glad you’re still here. BTW, why not give it a whirl and try twitter. You’re sort of perfect for it because, you keep things brief. Peace!

  4. You are too kind — I can’t think why anyone would read my twitters because half of every one would be swearing because I had to super-compress my thoughts. I generally do try to keep it short, as much to spare my readers, who I judge are capable of sorting out their own views, as you are, as because I work in short bursts, on the computer and outside. As for a photo, it would take a Special Forces A-Team to get a picture of me — cameras don’t like me, and I don’t like them. A photographer once told me it’s because my face isn’t still unless I’m asleep. Maybe I’ll post a shot of my new rescue dog, all seventy pounds of her. Come back and comment any time, especially if you disagree. That’s how we learn to refine our own thoughts.

  7. I’m not a Republican; I am a conservative. I have voted for plenty of Democrats, but lately there’s not much to choose from, on either side of the aisle. I want people of principle, statesmen even. I have come to the conclusion that, except for a tiny handful, they are all just hogs at the trough. I’ve had 6 decades of watching government at various levels screw things up. I’ve had enough of visiting assorted government agencies and seeing public employees yakking on the phone to friends, doing their nails and playing computer games. The taxes I’ve paid for nearly 50 years has supported them in their laziness and indifference. I knew a man who was an attorney at DoJ for many years and never did a lick of work, having perfected the art of appearing occupied. He bragged about it, much like the GSA employees. What you smell is the stench of slavery which accompanies people happy to let government bureaucrats run their lives. You’d better scrape it off your shoes before you learn to like it,.
