You will find that a few self proclaimed idealists, from history and in this present day, have decided to change the world along with our way of living in America. Their purpose is to take the ultimate power of GOD and ANNOUNCE that the old GOD is dead. The new GOD will be the GOVERNMENT controlled by an the progressive "more enlightened" few. We the people, who up to now have been free, would be governed by a progressive movement of those elite powerful few who believe that it is illegal to believe in God and publicly proclaim the belief. It is the aim of SOCIALISTS, FASCISTS, COMMUNISTS (differs only by country) to overtake all belief systems that exist and replace them with the modern elite liberal thinking.
My main purpose on this website to highlight the need for overt demonstration and exercise of our freedoms. We must remain free from any totalitarian PROGRESSIVES who have been allowed their freedom of speech by us only to use our freedoms to undermine or subvert our foundations of this nation.
I can remember the days of the old Royal or Underwood typewriters along with the AB dick mimeographs and Comptometers that I used for many years before this Computer Age came upon our generations. I find this new world we live in today fascinating because as we gain new great tools, we tend to lose contact with other valuable facets of living under the disguise of a kind of secular progressivism. We tend to "through the baby out with the bathwater" to make room for the new age. The Baby is the main part of our future, and we tend to just ignore the reality. We ignore the reality of spirituality that still is part of who and what we are as a civilization. I have often been just as guilty as anyone else by sometimes losing track of "a right direction." We have realized a new physical life that we find ourselves enjoying, but we have forgotten the most important truths that humans innately hold as "self evident" and for which we all continue to pursue and value. The physical part of life is very important, but the spiritual reality cannot and should not be left behind. I do not refer specifically to religion of any variety. By using the word Spiritual I raise the conversation to a more mindful spiritual level that humans innately respect.
"Truths held to be self evident" are ultimately important." "Among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." "Among these" address the fact that there OTHER WORDS that further explain our original Declaration of Independence, and give us further guidance. Try: Courage, Perseverance, Self Discipline, Humility, Reverence, Respect, and Honesty.
We all would like to see political change , but we also must recognize that America is a Culture of freedoms from oppression, which most of us respect and stand behind. Changes that are good to some may be disaster to others, so when Political Laws are made in our Congress and Regulation is controlled by other agencies, the preservation of the Freedom Culture for all must be maintained. When taxes are taken from selected groups and given to other selected groups, our national culture is fractured, the fabric of our economy of capitalism is fractured and the culture of freedom is eroded and continues to erode until we understand again that Equality is mostly Spiritual and not a Physical thing. Those "Truths held to be self evident" must be up front in all that we as humans create such as laws and regulations. Good cannot be legislated. Laws can only attempt to prevent bad things from happening and then sometimes in the process the unintended consequence of good things being taken away result.
I have spent a little time on this earth and I believe that I have learned a thing or two over these many years. My aim with my WEB site is to relay some of these insights and give a few references to add a little credence to my opinions and to those truths that were held to be self evident for many past generations. I believe that these truths are still a navigational aid to living even for today, but are ignored and rejected by some because it takes a little courage to maintain the resulting good character that comes from a kind of personal spiritual guidance.
The last several years have been filled with many meetings and discussions about education in general as well as education here in the the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District. There have been many strained discussions and decisions made. It all comes with being an elected Civil Servant. Everyone cannot possibly always agree with the hard decisions that must be made in our school district, but we are doing well.
When I look at the big picture, I can see a school district that is prepared as best any school district can be in a State that is having financial difficulties that are unprecedented. We are a public school provided for by the State of California. In the past, when we have needed further funding, the citizens of the Tahoe Truckee area have supported us with several bond issues passed with a super majority. We have a building program that is keeping our facilities upgraded as needed to provide a better learning environment in our district students.
Yes, we are doing well on the physical facility part, but I can see where we need to do better with the education part. I have a goal to attempt to help, in some way, students, parents, staff, and teachers that education starts with personal commitment to a moral based life. Once we establish good character, most everything else will fall in place. We will all be self starters that help build on the good character of each other. No one of us can do it all. Even though we are a law abiding society, no set of laws can ever be the ultimate guide. It is each person holding those traits of good character for themselves and others that guides us all toward the better American life. It takes a commitment to virtue before anyone will obey any law.
I have just read the book by Gavin Menzies, 1421
Gavin explains how the Chinese were way ahead of their time in the feudal world of the 15th century. I know that I have read other books and articles as to how Old China was very advanced in their years of long ago, but I have never found the evidence that Gavin refers to in his book.
1421, is worth reading! It will enhance your thinking that will be out of the normal accepted historical perspective. It is not destroying any history, just adding a perspective that has not been in any of our history books until now.
I have done many things. In early school I used to think of myself as a scientific type. I studied and actually enjoyed math, physics, chemistry, astronomy, engineering, etc. Along with all that I enjoyed philosophy, literature, forms of communication and so on. During my high school years Civil Air Patrol gave me the chance to be a young leader and understand that we all need others to help mentor us. One person cannot survive alone. I worked as an electrician in the U. S. Navy for several years. As time went along I became a little bored so I served as a Navy Recruiter. The Navy supply system was to slow for me so I volunteered to procure material and parts for Navy Ship Electrical Repair. It came time to move on, so I left the Navy and went back to College to major in Accounting and Business. I never worked as an accountant, but I did spend 30 years in telecommunications and at the same time finished a 26 year career in military service with the Air Force and Air National Guard Electronics, Administration, Intel, and Operations. I suppose that I may have failed to mention a few other side jobs here and there, but I have definitely been interested and involved in many different things.
Oh yes, I am a photographer as well. I have taken pictures at some events that I have been a part of and have placed some of them on WEBSHOTS for viewing. The above Album button will take you there. I was a member of the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District (TTUSD) Board of Directors for eight years, 1998-2006
I'm thinking that maybe I should "write a book." Everyone else is, but who'd want to read it? Probably not many.

I have read all 6 books (approximately 6000 pages total) and found each book hard to lay down. This 6 book set consists of a story that follows the actual history so well that I felt like I was reading history books instead of fiction. Mel
