National Security; College Campuses
I have witnessed a new era of security in the US. It is by far more prevalent than ever before. All dutied personnel and former officers of law enforcement are on alert. This is good. However we should not blow our wad too fast here. Remember International Terrorist acts are a waiting game. They learn the defenses and then figure out the system and then attack like an insider. There are holes closing fast on their efforts. But with each new leak fixed in the dam, there are new areas of vulnerability. Even if the areas in question are less of a problem then previously. For instance a chain is only as strong as it's weakest link.
We have an easy system in our universities for recruitment and the brain washing techniques are easily used on growing and expanding minds. Those who have not experienced the world, real world from a proper perspective are easily recruited for all kinds of stuff. Military service, corporate headhunters, political groups, religious organizations, social causes and even International Terrorism. Some of this is good. Corporations need people with intelligence to run American business and they contribute dollars, advise of curriculum and a reason to attend college in the first place.
Higher educations no matter how one feels about it is part of the American Dream, part of the perception of what opportunities really exist in our great country. If you will read "Rich Dad, Poor Dad," "The Millionaire Next Door," "The Millionaire Mind," "Die Broke." All have there different takes on this factor of college. Also if you would read "Rocking The Ages" you will see some interesting views coming from our different generations on this point. Either way after studying all these books and making some observations of their ideas and what brought the authors to their various thought processes, I would have to conclude this institution of higher learning will be around for a while and as these students of different subjects all come to one place it is a great way for them to learn new ideas. Unfortunately it is also a great place to recruit for good and evil. Religious organizations often recruit from these areas, many times it is a fad in ones life which allows them to be easily turned. There are many techniques for doing this. Some are the obvious ones, and others are quite diabolical in nature. Unfortunately they are so common that both good and evil both use it for recruitment.
Are we watching the brain washing going on in our colleges, are we watching for those who might use this venue for recruitment? We need to be thinking here.

A. THE PHILOSOPHY OF COMPETITIONThe aims of competition (anti-trust) laws are to ensure that consumers pay the lowest possible price (=the most efficient price) coupled with the highest quality of the goods and services which they consume.
Conservation of Water in Big Cities
Water Conservation in larger cities is less of an issue publicly than in smaller cities, yet in reality it is more important in larger cities to conserve to allow smaller cities to exist. This is ironic, however truth because a small city that saves a lot is a mere drop in the bucket to the amount of water a big city can save when each person saves only a small amount, because those little amounts are multiplied by the masses into true water savings.
America Needs Election Reform to Ensure Congressional Honesty
America must implement a policy on Election Reform that is equitable and fair to everyone. It is something we must do if we are to be a progressive society, a society for everyone, rich or poor.
Free Trade, Outsourcing, Protectionism and Reality Check
Recently on C-SPAN, there were two gentlemen debating free trade one from the CATO Institute for free trade. Yet he failed to mention the real problem, the lawyers, over regulation and government bureaucracy.
I am Not an African American
I am not an African-American. Don't call me an African -American.
Immigration: Ten Points to Ponder
1. Why is it that no one seems to notice, much less ever mention, that the World Bank and the IMF have implemented economic measures that have left large sections of their populations unemployed and destitute? (The illegals are not doing this, you see, but this population is easier to attack and is more defenseless than the World Bank and the IMF.
The American Worker: Downward Mobility
All the indicators show an improving economy and, finally, the start of job growth. More than eight million unemployed workers see hope around the corner and re-enter the nightmare of job search with increased enthusiasm and the positive outlook they lost six months ago when they virtually gave up on ever finding a good position.
California Car Wash Fundraisers and Environmental Law
Many non-profit groups are feeling upset that they are allowed to do car wash fundraisers in some California Cities. It is not that the government officials are against your groups raising money, it is that they worry where are the soapy dirty water is going.
Discount Cigarettes and Cheap Tobacco from Europe to the UK
It never fails to amaze me. HM Customs and Excise are at it again, stopping everyone in this country from getting the bargains that we are entitled to.
Free Markets, Farmers, and GM Crops
Many are condemning the latest GM Terminator seeds. Yet there is not need to cause a raucous because the free market will decide which seeds farmers buy? When a Corporate farmer plows under the crop for next season sometimes he uses the old seeds for new life next season.
Hillary Says Health Care Can Be Fixed with IT
The great leader and Senator from New York and wife of a former President cares about America and says that Health Care can be fixed with IT? Yes, perhaps that will help with accountability of the taxpayers wasted dollars in Health Care indeed. But how will that help the quality of Health Care?What I find interesting is that President Bush a couple of years ago said that he believed that the HIPPA Legislation would be able to be handled by entrepreneurial problem solvers through IT.
Why Dont We Listen To Entrepreneurs?
I just got done reading a series of articles dating from December 2000 to September 2001 (pre-9-11) regarding Larry Ellison's bush to get the government to link all it's databases. Now everyone agrees, but now we are post 9-11.
An Introduction to the Connecticut State Budget for 2004-2005
The Connecticut Conference of Municipalities (CCM) is interested in the state's budgetary health, so that the conference can estimate how much money the state will transfer to local towns and municipalities. To determine the fiscal health of any state, the first place to examine is expenditures on prescription drugs for the state's Medicaid program.
A Look Ahead to 2008 (Part I)
Just as everyone has breathed a sigh of relief at the end of 2004 presidential campaign, I would like to take a quick look ahead to 2008. Unless George W.
Smelter Closures In America Hurt Our Industrial Output
The United States is losing its industrial capacity quite rapidly. Some environmentalists call these "old industries" and say we do not need them anymore; that we want clean industries.
The Glorious Acts of Our Legislature
I always have to remember to take a deep breath when examining the laws being proposed by our grand Legislature. I detest most of the new legislation on the table, but have to forgive our representatives in the House and Senate for it.
Russian State Administration Gives New Facelift to Oil and Energy Resources
With the world's largest oil and natural gas reserves, second in coal production and eighth largest oil assembly, President Vladimir Putin draws grandiose plan for the country's hydrocarbon reserve encouraging drilling and investment plans aimed at further development. Private investments, domestic or foreign is however, a big no-no, rather state government plays the steward to Russia's energy patrimony or to say 'serve the national interest'.
Are American Twins - Majority Rule and Public Opinion, Sometimes Just a Couple of Dumbbells?
The idea that the majority shows the will of the people is a pretty good fix for now but it is not without its faults and weaknesses. That everyone decides to do something with one will is not now nor has ever been the promise of a perfect decision, direction or choice of any kind.
Mommas, Dont Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Lobbyists
For many years now, I have been the proud holder of jobs that my parents found very difficult to explain to their friends. Now, when a well-meaning acquaintance asks "what does your daughter do?" they try to explain that I help people understand how to communicate with elected officials.
Government Overregulation of Broadcast Content Could Backfire
Rush is right! The government's stepped up bid to regulate broadcast television content is indeed frightening. Limbaugh made his comments during one of his regular radio broadcasts last year.
