How to Destroy America: A Plan from a Liberal Democrat

As I have witnessed the violence, hatred, looting, and destruction taking place in the United States at the hands of anarchists, ANTIFA goons, and Black Lives Matter rioters I thought back to a five-minute speech I once heard by former liberal Democrat Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm. I didn’t hear it personally; I heard it as a recording. The speech was entitled: “I have a plan to destroy America.” It was delivered on Oct. 3, 2005. Various iterations of it have been around for a while, including revisions. Today, I am sharing the text of the speech below. I believe it was one Lamm made later, because it has been expanded a bit. However, I have attached a link to the original speech at the...

The Jack Commer Resurrection

Nonprofit Chronowar by Michael D. Smith
I suppose that could be a clever novel title if I ever do an eighth Commer novel, but it refers to the republication of my Jack Commer, Supreme Commander SF series. My publisher, Double Dragon Publishing, was sold to a British publisher earlier this month, and although I had a choice to continue with the new publisher, I decided I really want to self-publish the series so I can update the books, especially the first three, at my leisure. At this point I own the six covers and have new ISBN’s ready for publication by Sortmind Press. I’d actually made my decision long ago and had already made extensive notes for updating this series. In 2018 and last fall I’d reread the entire series, and whil...

Watching a bee hop around is great therapy

My lifestyle is pretty frenetic running here and there, fielding calls from clients, sorting out problems with Notaires and agents, rushing off on viewings, plus I have a home life too. Dogs, a partner, a house to maintain. I do feel at times that my head is literally spinning. Sometimes shutting out the noise in one's head necessitates switching off 'phones, retreating to the garden where I have planted buddleia, a fragrant flower beloved by bees. This morning I found a good 15 minutes to just stare at the bees as they made their way around the plant hungrily feeding off each flower. What joy! Simple stuff makes me happy. Always remember, happiness is in your head. I met a client last week ...

Another Casualty at the Gray Lady

During my career as a foreign correspondent, I knew a lot of New York Times reporters. Most were excellent reporters and good writers. Many, if not all, were from the East Coast and were graduates of Ivy League schools. I can’t recall many Times reporters who, like me, were products of the nation’s more plebian heartland and less prominent universities. As a result, I always had the sense that reporters for the Gray Lady, as  The Times is sometimes called, considered themselves on a dais just above everybody else—even reporters who worked for the Washington Post, which has always been the Times’s number one competitor. Okay, I got that. I worked for the Chicago Tribune, which at one time was...

Dear Diary… 2020

Before I start, this post was not wholly my idea. This post is vaguely in the form of a diary which looks back on 2020. It is an amalgamation of pieces taken from other blogs, social posts and such, with a snippet or two of my own observations mixed in for good measure. This is my disclaimer… as such, the following is far from my usual form of ‘Posting’. The following is purely for entertainment purposes, the expressed views herewith in are not necessarily those of the author. January. Australia caught on fire. I am unsure if the fire was extinguished, it may still be smouldering away. The reason I don’t know, is because the media circus had not finished talking about those fires when their ...

ALMOST ME blog post #398    Courtesy of Pixabay.comI’m not sure how my two posts about my new novel The Cutie Pie Murders, went over. Got lots of hits but few comments. At any rate, it’s now at Dreamspinner Press, so we’ll see what happens. A total change of Pace this week. Just a little something I dreamed up. Let me know how it works, okay? ***** ALMOST ME The path, rocky and uneven, made it difficult to find my footing given the shadows thrown by the surrounding forest and the fading light as the sun began its journey below a horizon hidden by towering trees. I cursed myself for not having returned to the house to saddle Thunder or harness one of the carriages. But I had already been ...

Irony & Pathos

Perceptions are weird.Various clues seem to point to the fact that, in the local business, I am considered a humorless, almost Vulcan-style, reptilian-like emotionless sort of writer. Or something like that.Which is, as I said, weird. Last night I was discussing a forthcoming project and I was told repeatedly Yes, but it will need some pathos. You need to put some in. Considering we were discussing a noirish, hard-boiled story, it is obvious that a certain amount of emotional involvement for the reader will have to be in but, as I tried to explain, it’s not like, I sit at the PC and go Now I’ll do two heavily pathos-laden pages! Pathos, the appeal to the reader’s emotions, is something that ...

From Jeff Bond, author of Blackquest 40 and The Pinebox Vendetta, comes Anarchy of the Mice, book one in an epic new series starring Quaid Rafferty, Durwood Oak Jones, and Molly McGill: the trio of freelance operatives known collectively as Third Chance Enterprises.

How far could society fall without data? Account balances, property lines, government ID records — if it all vanished, if everyone’s scorecard reset to zero, how might the world look? What savagery would take hold?

The Blind Mice are going to show us.

A Time To Read Books!

I don’t care what anyone says, my hair is supposed to be a long and tangled mess. This selfie displays my first attempt at trimming my bangs and it's from way back in April. I know it's funny, but you should see me now! In the kitchen, I ran out of a few spices and made some substitutions, heck, it still tasted good, didn’t it? So, hubs got involved, making crusty bread which turned out delicious.  We had help from a friend, who air-dropped packages of yeast over the garden gate. It seems his idea wasn't unique. Everyone bought up all the bread-making ingredients in the county! For awhile, flour became as rare as toilet paper.Anyway, the Fed-Ex guy is fast becoming a friend and, the Instacar...
