Framing the Dialogue

Big Time

I may be on the cusp of hitting it big or hit the “tipping point.”  I came across an explosive White House document as I searched the Internet earlier in the week.  I wasn’t sure whether to publish it as I don’t have a lot of money to defend myself from Big Brother.  This document has the potential to bring down politicians at a very high level.

This single page document seems to outline the strategy as the White House and the Democrats pursue their transformation of America.  The ingenuity of the document is its flexibility as it can be modified and adjusted to fit multiple goals.  I had seen similar documents, but they were in chemistry books and dealt with waste treatment.  You can be the judge whether this constitutes “waste treatment.” 

News Briefs – Volume IV

News briefs are my collection of interesting news stories that may not warrant a full post…

Brief 1:  It seems like the citizens of Japan want the U.S. out of their country.  The UK Daily Mail reported that thousands of protesters called for the removal of all of the estimated 47,000 U.S. troops.  Apparantly our troops are noisy and pollute as they protect the pacific rim.  I say bring em home.  Why spend our tax dollars to boost the Japanese economy.  There are a lot of communities in the United States that would welcome them and the money they spend.  We also need to take all of our equipment and defense technology too.  While we are at it, we can take them out of Germany too.

Blink

Using the phrase “The Power of Thinking Without Thinking” to describe your own book does not sound like a smart way to publicize your book.  I thought that there was far too much thinking without thinking going on in the world.  So why would I read this? 

I liked Malcolm Gladwell’s first book The Tipping Point not just for its information, but also because of his writing style.  Gladwell’s books provide a lot of information, but he writes in a very readable style and in an interesting way.  Based on this, I bought the book.

Outliers

When my children were growing up, we participated in their activities.  My wife and I did the scout thing (both boys and girls) as den leaders, helped organize holiday events, did book fairs, volunteered as band parents, and lots of sports activities.  All of our children played soccer and I often volunteered to help coach.  As they got older and better, I was encouraged to take classes and get a license to coach.
