Lessons We Can Learn from Jiro Ono
I have been re-watching the documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi for the past couple of months. I've seen it at least 10 times, probably more, while writing drafts for this article. I've watched it alone, with my wife, with friends, and I don't tire of it; I've recommended it to everyone I know, and now I'm wholeheartedly recommending it to you. I have watched this film in fascination, trying to extract lessons from this master. What have I learned from him? And what questions do these lessons open up for me? More »
How to Get Out of an Unwanted Political Conversation
With the election taking place last night, everyone wants to talk about it. That's great, and political discussion, along with a little gloating or moaning, is certainly good for the soul. But what about when you just want to put your head down and get work done? Here's how to get out of those conversations and stay focused. More »

Obama Re-Elected, Calls For Electoral Reform

Long Time Philadelphia Voters Reportedly Missing From Rolls, Forced to Cast Provisional Ballots
[Now UPDATED at bottom with comment from Philadelphia's election chief, City Commissioner Stephanie Singer .] Okay, this one is quite troubling. It's being reported that long time voters in Philadelphia have been showing up to vote today, only to find out that they are not on the voting rolls anymore at all. In the bargain, "large numbers" of voters are being forced to vote on provisional ballots
A Pennsylvania Surprise?
My last official campaign entry "Election 2012: What's the fundamental issue?" is still posted below. But it seems I must do one more.You see... I'm worried about Pennsylvania.  Mitt Romney just campaigned there and many in the press wondered why? Why take time from crucial swing states like Florida, Virginia, Ohio and Colorado, to campaign in a state President Obama has apparently sewn up?

Fundamentals and the Triumph of Avoiding Disaster
John Sides has an excellent post up called "The Fundamentals Mattered in 2012." He's not saying that the campaigns didn't matter at all, but that the context for the campaign was a playing field favoring Barack Obama; as Matthew Dickinson reminded us before the polls closed, the consensus of fundamentals-based forecasts called for a narrow Obama victory.Absolutely true, and the place to begin. But

Corbett Report Radio 253 – A Tale of Two sElections
The leadership of a great nation hangs in the balance. Even now, decisions are being made in secret that will influence the course of the world’s finances and geopolitics in the years to come. The people have been told that their votes play a part in this process, but no one believes it. The real leadership decision is made behind closed doors, with zero transparency, by a self-appointed “elite.”
Anomalies of the Air Defense on 9/11 – Paul Schreyer on GRTV
The systematic failure of every level of the US air defense on the morning of September 11th provides one of the clearest “smoking guns” in the full complicity of key elements of the US government and defense department in those attacks. In his new peer-reviewed article published at the Journal of 9/11 Studies, author and researcher Paul Schreyer outlines many of these key anomalies and the way th
Psyops 101: Psyops on the homefront
by James Corbett BoilingFrogsPost.com November 6, 2012 The proponents of psychological warfare tactics by modern-day governments argue that fears about government propaganda are misplaced as there are laws in place to prevent the US government from propagandizing to its own citizens. Indeed, legislation prohibiting government-sponsored domestic propaganda has been in place for nearly one century.

On Mr. Obama’s Reelection
The outcome of the election yesterday was hopeful enough. When I reflect on the liberal leanings of many I know, and when I think about how these are hard-working, tax-paying folks who value longterm friendships and the virtues of honesty and inclusion—I’m mystified at the screaming and anger on the other side. And I’m mystified by the anger at a moderate center-left President. This is the 5th ti

Today is Election Day. I worked a poll today for my candidate for State Representative. Soon we will know the results. Unless for whatever reasons we don’t know the results due to whatever circumstance. In any case, the work of freedom will be up to each of us no matter who wins the Presidential election and the very many other elections other across Texas and across the nation. It is up to everyd

Obama Drones On
Four more years of drone killings, Guantanamo, crazy FBI agent provocateur plots, whistleblower prosecutions and surveillance of citizens were going to come whoever won. Goldman Sachs funded both candidates royally. I probably prefer the slightly tempered or disguised neo-con to the red meat neo-con, but let nobody pretend it makes a vast difference. A respected retired African President told me

Afghanistan, Heroin, Addiction, Death
Thought it was time to do a post on Heroin. Seems we have a world wide epidemic now. The profiteers are happy .Billions of dollars happy. The addicts and those who have to deal with them, are not so happy. The farmers who grow it do not make a lot of money, but everyone after them does. They make a fortune. Typical in the profiteering business however. Nov 5, 2012 $8.8M worth of heroin seized at

It Is Accomplished III
(continued from here) 6:22 p.m. The farcical kabuki that the rag doll could prevail in Pennsylvania is over. With about two votes counted, Fox Radio News has called the state for Obama. The announcer relayed this news in the same tones as he would adopt if he just heard that his son had perished in an automobile accident. Similarly, the pathetic delusion that the people of Michigan might hug Ass B

Anyway, Dylan has pronounced the

4 more years of much the same.
It seems all but redundant at this point to say almost anything about the US presidential race.  Someone, somewhere, will have had the exact same thought and either blogged or tweeted it or posted it on Facebook.  In all likelihood, everything that could have been said was said months ago, and the only thing that's even slightly enlivened the contest was Obama's hopeless showing in the fir

Is another Tip O'Neill, Ronald Reagan Grand Bargain Possible?
By @TedFrier The hidden winner in last night's historic election may be Republican House Speaker John Boehner whose home state of Ohio put President Barack Obama over the top for a second term. If Boehner plays his cards right he may be able to reprieve the role made famous by Democratic Speaker Tip O'Neill and conservative icon Ronald Reagan back in the early 1980s when these two old fashioned Ir
Reflections On The Election: 'Get Over It'
I'm going to try to restrain myself from being ugly to the vanquished, but only up to a point. For one thing, the defeat is not complete. They still have control of the U.S. House of Representatives. Orange Julius will remain Weeper of the House, and therefore it's not likely that much will be done in Washington for at least the next two years. But also, being ugly is just no-class, even when I do

Robin Hood Goes To Capitol Hill
Take from the rich, give to the poor. The legendary robber’s credo found new expression in U.S. law on September 14, when Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) introduced the “Robin Hood tax” bill. Formally known as the Inclusive Prosperity Act, it proposes a small financial transaction tax on Wall Street to ease the economic burden on the rest of us—a measure that has the backing of economists such as P
