This website is under construction! I am working on compiling the best of about ten years of multiple websites and moving slowly.
I am pretty sure this site will be disturbing to many folks and, of course, that does not please me, BUT, this is what I believe, and I feel compelled to share. I hope you will return soon and often.
******My Warning Pages are back. This is a key social inflection point. Beyond the immediacy of the virus pandemic is the danger of the "opportunism" of President Trump. Beware of Fascism on the Rise.
The purpose of this website is to construct a relationship with you based upon truth and justice. aln
Well, I am beginning to get some comments from folks by "contact page". I am overwhelmed with religious folks demanding a more "let's all hug and think nice thoughts" approach. Truth no longer matters to many! That really is scary.
****For some reason my comment function is not working for my blog posts. I am working with my service provider to get it fixed.*****
It interests me to confirm that most of the comments have been from people in the economic top 1% who do not understand the gravity of this situation we are in relative the the Coronavirus and President Trump.
Generally speaking, people are not even close to understanding the epidemiological ramifications of (doubling the rate of increase) every few days for 20 - 30 doublings. There is a phenomenon that I learned in grade school that most (and I mean most) people in the world do not grasp: The last few days of doubling are what makes exponential numbers so "epidemiologically" scary.
This is not getting through to people (otherwise smart people) that half the people in the world have no socio-economic means to fight this thing, including health care or economic help. When the numbers of infected in the world double for about 18 times (roughly 4-5 months), in this pandemic, you will see over 100 million people infected and over 5 million deaths.
This is not about the stock market for the very few who have significant asset investment, nor is it about jobs. This is life and death. This failed global socio-economic system (not systems) will be reconfigured by, I hope, not politicians and patricians. Best of luck to you folks. aln
I am a "truther" and I believe "True Lies" are at the core of ignorance, confusion and injustice in our world. Propaganda is real in America and the rest of the world, as well. It serves the wealthy and the powerful and enslaves the rest of us to one degree or the other and in many ways. One of the least understood is "employment," the renting of people by the hour by our "owner" masters. This is modern slavery as opposed to the slavery of "buying and selling" people of color (and others).
The purpose of this post is to introduce my music project and The Blue Notes: Do (on the keyboard), Re (at the microphone), and Me (with the guitar).
The Blue Notes are going to produce a series of musical video blog entries on this website as we work to construct a blues ballad about modern slavery we call "The True Lie Blues."
The format for these blog entries will include me talking about the process of writing the lyrics and music for our blues ballad with a sampling of our performance progress along the way.
I have little or no musical talent or ability, but a lot of desire to accomplish this music project as part of my retirement goals I set for myself. I really hope that some of you may find it (and us) interesting, or at least mildly amusing.
