“Chronic remorse, as all the moralists are agreed, is a most undesirable sentiment. If you have behaved badly, repent, make what amends you can and address yourself to the task of behaving better next time. On no account brood over your wrongdoing. Rolling in the muck is not the best way of getting clean.”
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

The time has come to tell the story of my political convictions.


Since I have the technical skills of a baboon, this may not turn out well. - I am hoping to bring together many points from various forms of media into a single article.

I recently saw a clip on social media regarding the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) attempting to ruin the nations summer.  Horrible humans.  Why can't the just leave us alone?  Do we need any oversight from these uppity tree hugger types?  Who is going to ruin my summer?  Who is going to keep the Hot Dogs away from my children?  Its the feds.  Yup once again the feds are out to do in Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Hotdogs.


To paraphrase Isaac Newton - for every action there is an equal an opposite reaction.

The next data point is "8 minutes".  That is meant to represent the total amount of time I dedicated to thinking about Israeli politics in the past 20 years - prior to January 2015 of course.  I can't quantify the exact amount of time, but lets assume that its really wasn't very much.

There are moments in time where you are presented with absolute brilliance. Yesterday, I experienced one such moment. I had my face buried in my computer, TV on in the background.  Bibi Netanyahu had just wrapped up presenting to the US congress. His presentation was enough to rally any great fan of dystopian fiction.  In Bibi, I saw Peter Sellers as Dr Strangelove a movie I had seen on the Dialing for Dollars movie at 4pm in the 1970's. Then I happened. I see a Koch Industries logo flash on the screen. This was it – the moment of brilliance.

I suppose we have nothing to worry about.  There was snow on the ground in Washington DC in February.  This is undeniable proof that humans are not adversely affecting the environment of the planet.  

Through the ages, the climate on the planet has changed.  There has been ice, lots of ice.  The ice moves toward the equator and migrates north or south toward the poles.  Its a fact.  Anyone who can comprehend that the world is over 6000 years old should be able to grasp this fact.
