I hate to ask...


I was trying to get through this recent medical emergency without asking for extra donations, but things went critical this morning. 

I had some charges deducted automatically that, in the confusion, I had forgotten were coming up. I tried to cancel but it was too late. And now I'm overdrawn, which will result in additional charges if I don't cover the expense really fast. Plus, I need a tank of gas in the next day or so.

I've already had someone step in with a donation the day of the surgery, so if that was you please ignore the request-- you've done enough.

As always, if you can't afford it or just don't want to, please keep your money. If you can afford to help and you want to help: Please PayPal -- Venmo -- GiveSendGo (Paypal has the fastest way to get the money transferred to the bank account, but anything would be greatly appreciated!)

Thank you.

Curing a sick society

Society is suffering from an extreme case of parasitosis-- it is critically infested with parasites.

To get rid of parasites and get healthy sometimes takes harsh measures. You've got to poison the parasites and expel them without killing the host. That's often rather unpleasant to the host. If you've ever wormed a dog that had a bad infestation you know what I mean.

It's essential anyway.

How do you "worm" a society to get rid of politicians, bureaucrats, and enforcers? How do you convince people it's necessary when they are afraid of the unpleasantness of the process? Because it IS necessary, and (for some) it WILL be unpleasant.

(Posting may be sporadic. I'm struggling to see the laptop screen in my one-eyed condition [apparently I can't see well out of my good eye, either. and need both]. I can see and use my phone better, but I'm not accustomed to writing walls of text on it. We'll see how it goes.)

This blog is my job. You get to decide if I get paid. 
Please consider it.
Thank you.
