Bio: Who am I? I am a forty something American raised in a family and country where appearances were more important than facing the truths that were slowly damaging my families happiness. The blog that you see here is my way of shouting to the world that I will be heard for who I am, not for what others would have me be. It exists to give voice to the way I see the world and my need to create things that are important to me. My blog has two main goals. One, to express my point of view on events shaping the world around me; to tell you, the reader, about the ideas that rattle inside my skull and their many origins. You may even be lucky enough to see the quirky sense of humor hidden behind my repressed personality. Second, I wish to show you my creative efforts in writing and art and ask for your support on this journey. Sometimes I will even highlight the creations of others, or more accurately, the creations that became a part of me, so that you can see the foundations for my own works. Come one come all if you have an ear to hear. Most welcome though are the mystics and misfits, those who refuse to blindly follow what others say is the truth. Come see if there is a reflection of yourself in my ideas and writings. As Dukhat said on my favorite TV show "Will you follow me into Fire? Will you follow me into darkness? Will you follow me into death? Then follow." Of course, the death part is totally not expected.

  1. I am quite sure I am not a mystic but lean heavily toward being a misfit by the nature of my day to day existence. having digested your ‘disneyland for con artists’ I find we may not think along similar paths but I quite enjoy a thought out discussion/posting weather I support the view or not. In your research and conclusions I find no fault and can only add if one were to remove some of the tax laws/exemptions that 1% rely on then maybe they would be finally paying their share.

    • Thanks for the reply. I will admit that there is more that needed fleshed out on the subject but my main point is that the idealistic view so many rich people like to spout about our system is far from the historical records. One of the main flaws in our economy, which has lead to the imbalanced system they are taking advantage of is that a short cut was taken to falsely add fantastic growth to our economy. A growth that we are finding harder and harder to maintain. See my post “America the Ponsi Scheme”.

      As for being a Mystic and a Misfit, I find myself bouncing between the two usually at the wrong times. Glad I am not the only Misfit.
