While We Still Have Time

In spite of the grimness of the times in which we live, there is still hope. If you feel, like I do, that the usual discourse about matters of critical concern tends to be superficial, misguided, and false, then you might find some solace and inspiration here. I will try to offer insight and a holistic perspective on events and issues, and hopefully serve as a catalyst for raising the level of dialogue on this planet.

My Photo
Location: Madison, Wisconsin, United States

I was born in 1945, shortly before atom bombs were dropped on Japan. I served in the U.S. Army from 1968 to 1971. I earned master's degrees in Economics and Educational Psychology, and certificates in Web Page Design and as a Teacher of English as a Second Language. I followed an Indian guru for eight years, which immersed me in meditative practices and an attitude of reaching a higher level of being. A blog post listing the meditative practices I have pursued can be seen here.

I had some ideas festering to write about, but this picture is enough by itself to tell the story of the struggle against Wisconsin's governor and his nasty legislation. If you click on the picture a larger version appears. All the pictures are from Tuesday, June 14. The state Supreme Court had just decided, along partisan lines, to overturn the injunction against Governor Walker's union busting bill.

The girl in the photo was very proud of her sign, and wanted me to know she made it herself. If there were no other reason to keep fighting against this evil "Republican" scheme, the future of our children suffices.

Silly looking guy


This song is getting a lot of play locally. Click here to learn more about the Coalition to Save Workers.

I linked to this song a few posts back, but it deserves an encore.

Others are giving their thanks to Scott Walker.

Here's some truth about the economy. Robert Reich was Clinton's Secretary of Labor until he quit at the end of the first term.

Thanks for the comment. I'll take a closer look at your site when I get some time. It's a little hard to follow.
