Social Commentary

.

.Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to another article here at The Other Shoe. Today I am here to post a short article, but a very important graphic. Below you will find a chart. In this chart are logos, and names, of most of the media outlets we all are familiar. Familiar or not, this graphic (created by a non-partisan media watchdog group) breaks down where the outlets we favor fall.

.

Meaning, is the media outlet I read and use most; Liberal, Progressive, Conservative, Ultra-Conservative, and are they are reliable source or are they highly partisan. I have been writing and publishing, now, for over six years and I found this chart to be very helpful! I already knew where many of these outlets fell, but it did some as a surprise that some of the media I was reading was far more partisan that I realized.

.

My Dear Shoevians, I wanted to share this graphic but I also wanted to make you aware that I will do my best to stick to publishing honest and reliable articles. It is not my intent to write or publish highly partisan articles, there is already more than enough outlets that engage in that practice.

.

Finally, I want you to feel free to save this image for your own use and refer to it as a guide. A guide that might help you, My Dear Shoevians, to guard against a diet of only  highly partisan articles.

KIEV, Ukraine — On a leafy side street off Independence Square in Kiev is an office used for years by Donald J. Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, when he consulted for Ukraine’s ruling political party. His furniture and personal items were still there as recently as May.And Mr. Manafort’s presence remains elsewhere here in the capital, where government investigators examining secret records have found his name, as well as companies he sought business with, as they try to untangle a corrupt network they say was used to loot Ukrainian assets and influence elections during the administration of Mr. Manafort’s main client, former President Viktor F. Yanukovych.

(Trump Campaign Manager – Paul Manafort)

.

                            Welcome back, My Dear Shoevians, to another edition of ‘News from Trumpland’.  In this edition I am sharing the newest ‘news’ that a ledger has surfaced, in the Ukraine, that details huge sums of ILLEGAL cash flowing to Paul Manafort, Campaign Chief of Trump’s Presidential Campaign. For me at least, My Dear Shoevians, this discovery cements  the links between Donald J Trump and Russian power brokers!

.

“Handwritten ledgers show $12.7 million in undisclosed cash payments designated for Mr. Manafort from Mr. Yanukovych’s pro-Russian political party from 2007 to 2012, according to Ukraine’s newly formed National Anti-Corruption Bureau. Investigators assert that the disbursements were part of an illegal off-the-books system whose recipients also included election officials.”

.

Now, that is $12.7 MILLION that (could have) gone directly to the Presidential Campaign of one Donald J Trump! There is no telling where this money went, for sure, but we all know where Paul Manafort is right now… Holding Donald J Trump’s hand! Americans need to seriously consider the possibility that illegal Russian funds are now fueling Presidential campaign right here in America! 

.

(Investigation Site in Ukraine Offices of Paul Manafort)

.

“Mr. Manafort’s involvement with moneyed interests in Russia and Ukraine had previously come to light. But as American relationships there become a rising issue in the presidential campaign — from Mr. Trump’s favorable statements about Mr. Putin and his annexation of Crimea to the suspected Russian hacking of Democrats’ emails — an examination of Mr. Manafort’s activities offers new details of how he mixed politics and business out of public view and benefited from powerful interests now under scrutiny by the new government in Kiev.”

.

This criminal investigation  has discovered multiple ties between Vladimir Putin and Paul Manafort, current and recently past connections. All of these connections are financial in nature and all are ILLEGAL! Now Mr. Manafort is serving as Campaign Chief for the Presidential Campaign of Donald J Trump. How does the saying go? ‘Birds of a feather, flock together.” and/or ‘Thick as thieves’!  The evidence is mounting, with every passing day, of the illegal activities of Paul Manafort outside America. Can there be any doubt that this propensity for illegal activities extends right into the ‘Trump Campaign for President’?

.

“Anti-corruption officials there say the payments earmarked for Mr. Manafort, previously unreported, are a focus of their investigation, though they have yet to determine if he actually received the cash. While Mr. Manafort is not a target in the separate inquiry of offshore activities, prosecutors say he must have realized the implications of his financial dealings.

“He understood what was happening in Ukraine,” said Vitaliy Kasko, a former senior official with the general prosecutor’s office in Kiev. “It would have to be clear to any reasonable person that the Yanukovych clan, when it came to power, was engaged in corruption.”

Mr. Kasko added, “It’s impossible to imagine a person would look at this and think, ‘Everything is all right.’”

.

.

“The developments in Ukraine underscore the risky nature of the international consulting that has been a staple of Mr. Manafort’s business since the 1980s, when he went to work for the Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos. Before joining Mr. Trump’s campaign this spring, Mr. Manafort’s most prominent recent client was Mr. Yanukovych, who — like Mr. Marcos — was deposed in a popular uprising.

Before he fled to Russia two years ago, Mr. Yanukovych and his Party of Regions relied heavily on the advice of Mr. Manafort and his firm, who helped them win several elections. During that period, Mr. Manafort never registered as a foreign agent with the United States Justice Department — as required of those seeking to influence American policy on behalf of foreign clients — although one of his subcontractors did.”

.

My Dear Shoevians I will work hard to keep you all informed and abreast of all the investigation, as it progresses. I hope that all good Americans find out about the nefarious activities of Paul Manafort – Campaign Manager for Trump for President. To allow this man… anywhere near the White House for be disastrous for our nation… our Republic. This man, Paul Manafort, has made millions upon millions of dollars profiting from illegal activities in a foreign nation, there is no telling what illegal activities he would engage in from the seat of power right here in America! 

.

Be informed. Be prepared, waiting for ‘The Other Shoe’ to drop!

.

Thank you!

.

Adieu!

Sen. Bernie Sanders
                                                                                       Sen. Bernie Sanders  

.

                       Is Senator Bernie Sanders is a Democrat In Name Only (D.I.N.O.)? Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. I cast my very first vote, as a Democrat, in the 1976 Presidential Election. That day I went into the tall metal box (with a cloth curtain covering the back) and ‘Pulled a Straight Democratic Ticket’. Since that day in 1976, I have voted as, and been registered as, a ‘Card Carrying’ member of the Democratic Party! Forty years I have held a voter registration card indicating that I am a Democrat, a member of the Eldest political party in America.

.

Conversely, Senator Sanders just joined the Democratic Party, in 2015, simply to take advantage of the National Democratic Party. Having been a member of the Democratic Party, for less than a year, Senator Sanders has taken it upon himself to ‘Reinvent the Wheel’ by way of demanding changes in his newly adopted party. Let’s make one thing perfectly clear. Senator Sanders has no great love for either party. He has caucused with Republicans whenever it furthered his own personal political ambitions.

.

Gun Laws (PARTY Legislation)

Case In point:

.

  • The 1992 ‘Brady Bill’ (Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act[1]A bill, started in the House of Representatives, as a legislative response to the shooting of President Reagan and his Press Secretary James Brady by John Hinckley Jr. The bill carried provisions for:
    • Mandated Background Checks for all purchases of firearms
    • Prohibits certain persons from shipping or transporting any firearm in interstate or foreign commerce, or receiving any firearm which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce, or possessing any firearm in or affecting commerce.
    • STOPS guns sales to:
    • Has been convicted in any court of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year;
    • Is a fugitive from justice;
    • Is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance;
    • Has been adjudicated as a mental defective or committed to a mental institution;
    • Is an alien illegally or unlawfully in the United States;
    • Has been discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions;
    • Having been a citizen of the United States, has renounced S. citizenship;
    • Is subject to a court order that restrains the person from harassing, stalking, or threatening an intimate partner or child of such intimate partner, or;
    • Has been convicted in any court of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence.

.

The Brady Bill passed the House by a vote of 238 to 187, along party lines. Senator Bernie Sanders voted with Republicans!

.

There is no greater issue that unites the Democratic Party, in America, than strengthening gun laws and stopping the senseless death of American citizens by guns. Yet, Senator Sanders has voted (time and again) to reinforce the rights of; gun makers, gun owners, and even the questionable practice of ‘Gun Shows’. This is my ‘Reason Number One’ for my stated opinion that Senator Bernie Sanders is a Democrat In Name Only!  

.

Spoiled Child Syndrome

.

Most of us, My Dear Shoevians, have; started a new job, moved to a new company in the same field, or moved into a new field to further our careers. If you have, then you (most likely) have heard this adage:

“Learn how OUR system WORKS, before you go reinventing the wheel.”

.

It is age advice, and is given to a new employee in hopes that they learn how things are done (at their new job, or new field) prior to working to change a job or company where you are a freshman member. Senator Sanders would do well to heed these words, for he is inciting violence among his supporters, all in the vain attempt to change the Democratic Party WITHOUT learning how it works… FIRST!

.

Further, I can make a very good analogy that most (if not all) parents can (or should) relate to:

You are holding a Birthday party for your… let’s say ten year old son or daughter. You have invited the ‘New Kid’ on the block, to your child’s birthday party. They are new to the neighborhood, but you want to be inclusive of the children your child shares and neighborhood with, and goes to school with, it is just being a ‘Good Neighbor’.

However, when it comes time for your son or daughter to open their birthday presents? The ‘new kid’ jumps up from his seat and declares:

“This party is unfair! I think that each time your son or daughter gets a birthday present, I TOO should get a present! It’s not fair to ME!”

.

Now, without having worked to be a part of your neighborhood, without taking the time and effort to learn the rules governing ‘Birthday Parties’ this ‘new kid’/interloper begins making unreasonable demands of a system that was in place well before they arrived!

.

Now, let’s apply this same example to… well, how about…

SUPERDELEGATES

.

Superdelegates: Superdelegates have been a part of the nomination process since 1980. Nearly the entire time that I have been a voting member of the Democratic Party.

.

First, what are Superdelegates?

.

“For Democrats, superdelegates fall into three categories based on other positions they hold, and are formally described (in Rule 9.A) as “unpledged party leader and elected official delegates”[3] (unpledged PLEO delegates) consisting of:

  • elected members of the Democratic National Committee
  • distinguished party leaders, consisting of current and former presidents, vice presidents, congressional leaders, and DNC chairs
  • sitting Democratic governors and members of Congress.

For Republicans, there are three delegates in each state, consisting of the state chairman and two RNC committee members, who are automatic delegates to the national convention. However, according to the RNC communications director Sean Spicer, convention rules obligate these RNC members to vote according to the result of primary elections held in their states, if the state holds a primary.[2]

.

Next, how did Superdelegates come into play in the Democratic Party Nomination Process?

.

“Following a series of meetings held from August 1981 to February 1982, the Hunt Commission issued a report which recommended the set aside of unelected and unpledged delegate slots for Democratic members of Congress and for state party chairs and vice chairs (so-called “superdelegates”).[8] While the original Hunt plan, superdelegates were to represent 30% of all delegates to the national convention, but when it was finally implemented by the Democratic National Committee for the 1984 election, the number of superdelegates was set 14%. Over time this percentage has gradually increased, until by 2008 the percentage stands at approximately 20% of total delegates to the Democratic Party nominating convention.”[3]

.

The creation of Superdelegates was two-fold. One, the National Democratic Party wanted “more electable candiadtes’. To that end, they handed more power to Democrats that ALREADY held office! This is common sense, if you want more electable candidates for your party, have members of your party that have WON elections have a lager voice! This process helped a little known Governor of Arkansas become the first Two Term Democratic Party President since President John Kennedy.

.

Second, the Superdelegates were to act ‘Gate-Keepers’ for the National Democratic Party. In essence, these ‘Gate-Keepers’ are meant to keep interlopers from coming into our party and high-jacking the most revered and highest office a party member can obtain! THAT is THE reason that Senator Sanders is railing against Superdelegates! Senator Sanders IS that interloper!

.

Finally, and I am wrapping this up at this point merely out of pain blinding me right now, let us discuss:

.

Party Unity

.

Secretary Clinton is already pledging 1% of ALL campaign funds she receives to go to ‘Down Ticket Races’. That means new Congressmen/Senators hoping to get elected, returning Congressmen/Senators hoping for reelection and state offices (like Governors), too. Sec. Clinton has already made appearances for some down ticket races, as has Bill Clinton. Conversely, Senator Sanders has opted to hold hostage any involvement in down ticket races “we’ll see…”[4] how the party treats Bernie Sanders, BEFORE he commits to assisting with any down ticket races.

.

These are the actions of a man with only one person/campaign/agenda/future in mind, his own! This is not, what I have come to know, as a genuine Democratic Party Member. To withhold support, to withhold monies, to withhold being a genuine party member until after his ‘Coronation’ is the ultimate in hubris and lacks the real party unity the Democratic Party NEEDS to; take back the Senate, hold on to the White House, GET our SCOTUS judges confirmed, PROTECT the reproductive rights of WOMEN, rein IN the ORGY of gun violence, and further Equality!

.

Senator Sanders, if elected, simply cannot further his progressive agenda solo! This man has come into the Democratic Party at the Eleventh Hour then demands that we ‘Change how the party works’ to fit with ‘Independents’? What about all of us lifetime members of the Democratic Party? What about the people who have stood with are party through thick and thin?

.

This is why I have decided to decry Senator Bernie Sanders as a Democrat In Name ONLY! (D.I.N.O.) From where I am sitting it is obvious that Sen. Sanders is willing to nuke our Democratic Party if we don’t give him a birthday present, TOO! I deeply tire of reading the comments, on Facebook, of people who have LEFT our party. Gone ‘Independent’ then, when it looks bleak if the Republican nominee gets elected? They invade our party and make unrealistic demands!

.

The rules, of this election, were decided LAST YEAR! Where were these ‘Independents’ when the time came for the HARD WORK of; Rules Committees, Convention Site Committees, Delegate Committees, and on and on and on? Where were they, then?

.

Were they supporting Sen. Sanders while he supporter Gun Manufactures Rights? Where were they, when we Life-Long Democrats were doing the hard work? Now, when it is time for cake and balloons and the elevation of a Nominee for President of our party.. then they show up making demands? As well, where will they BE when the time comes to make the rules for the 2020 election? Where will they be when the time comes to vote for or against Superdelegates, then? Will they return to be ‘Independents’ or will they stay with the Democratic Party though thick and thin?

.

Many of Bernie’s supporters are already threatening that ‘if Bernie is not the nominee, then we will not vote for Hillary…’! Where is the Party Unity? This is what distrubs me most about this election, this 2016 Presidential Election. It really feels more like “Voting for Dances with the Stars’ than any Presidential Election I have ever taken part over the past forty years.

.

Now, the ball is in your court… Bernie supporters? What will you do?

.

Adieu!

.

Thank you!

.

Be good to one another!

                                                          Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. First, I would like to extend my heartfelt “THANKS!” to Jason Kleppinger for his donation of $25.00 to my ‘Computer Repair Fund’. This is my very first donation and I am hoping that, with the publication of this article, I might reach more of you, My Dear Shoevians, and convince you that my need is great and genuine. In this second article, regarding the death of my writing computer, I am including images of the; desktop, Device Manager, Device Tab and others as evidence that (in fact) my laptop (writing) computer is damaged and does need repair.

.

Since I first wrote of this problem I have been able to get two (over the phone) estimates for the cost of the repair. The estimates (so far) range from $225.00 to $460.00. Of course, I am going to take the computer to the repair company that offers to do the work for the lowest estimate. So far, that is $2250.00, but that is “sight unseen” and could go up (slightly) more if there is more wrong with the laptop. My Dear Shoevians, I have run several diagnostic programs on this laptop and have come to the conclusion that only one problem exists. The ‘Display Adapter’ is not working. I have: rebooted, removed the battery and let computer stand (without power) for two hours then rebooted, booted up without the ‘Repeater-Extension’ module connected, and ‘Uninstalled/Reinstalled’ the display adapter twice. All to no avail. The image below shows the ‘Device Manager’ with the error indicated with the ‘Display Adapter’.

.

In order to see the image better, just click on the image and it will take you to a full screen display of the image, this is true for all the image in this article and all images on my blog(s). You can clearly see the Yellow Triangle with the black apostrophe indicating that the problem device is the ‘Display Adapter’. This would be a very small problem with a desktop computer. Just as easy as buying a new (or used on eBay) Graphics card and installing said card into the computer. However, this is a laptop computer and that means that the ‘Display Adapter’ is built into the motherboard. That means, in order to fix the problem, the motherboard must be replaced.

.

The image, above, shows the ‘Display Adapter’ tab in the ‘Device Manager’ showing that there is a problem with that device and Windows has not/will not start the device until the problem is resolved. As I have indicated I have gone through any/all trouble shooting for this problem I could find; one the Windows web site, Tom’s Hardware web site, and the nVidia web site, too. I am very much certain that the replacement of the motherboard will resolve the problem I am having, and return to me my writing laptop computer.

My Dear Shoevians, I deeply apologize for this… intrusion into your life… asking for help/assistance is not something that I enjoy or relish. Matter of fact, it really rubs me the wrong way and I work very hard to avoid these situations. However, this has become an unavoidable reality in my life. Again, I deeply apologize for writing and asking for your financial assistance in this matter.

Again, ‘THANK YOU JASON!!!” for your generous contribution of $25.00. With ONLY F I V E more contributions of $50 or more I will have the funds I so desperately need to pay for this much needed repair. I have a real and deep bound with this machine. Over the past seven years I have written; over 650 articles, TWO questions USED BY Bob Schieffer on ‘Face the Nation’ (to question Sen. Mitch McConnell and Speaker Rep. John Boehner), 200+ pages of ‘The Horror in Smithville’, 100+ pages of ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia – The Healing Light’, newsletters, business cards, fliers and a brochure design (all for Hanning Web Wurx and The Other Shoe).

With your contribution(s) (via PayPal) just use enzomatrix@earthlink.net and Daniel Hanning. The repair company HB Computers will be the company making the repairs on my HP DV9500t CTO laptop computer. This laptop computer, when new, cost me $2,000.00 and it still works incredibly well (aside from the display adapter not working), and with this repair I am certain that it will serve me another five years and another 500+ articles plus two more books in the ‘The Horror in Smithville’ series and two more books in the ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’ series.

.
My Dear Shoevians,
I do hope that you consider the information I have shared, look at the desktop and device manager images, and PLEASE consider assisting me in this venture of repairing my (desperately needed) writing computer. I have priced new laptop computers and found that a laptop (17.3′ screen, Geforce Video Card, three USB ports, extender port [an HP QuickDock 2.0 Docking Station – which I OWN] and a full sized keyboard with number keypad) would cost me between $2,000.00 and $3,000.00. This, investment, of $225 – $350 is a fraction of that amount and well spent.

.

Again, please go to PayPal to make your donation to Daniel Hanning enzomatrix@earthlink.net to help me get up and writing and publishing again… soon. Thank you for your time and effort… THANK YOU for your consideration and kindness… THANK YOU for EVERYTHING you do to HELP!

.

As always, if you ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ this article, via your social media outlets, it will greatly increase the chances I meet my goal and obtain my working writing laptop… Again!

.

P.S. Dear Family, Friends, Facebook Friends, and Followers of The Other Shoe​;
BELOW is a scan of the receipt for my $50 payment for Diagnosis &/or Deposit towards REPAIR of my ‘Writing Computer’ with HB Computers in Huntington Beach.

I am still quite berfet of the FUNDS I NEED to PAY for said repairs… … but I just HAD to FIND OUT; IF it can be repaired, HOW MUCH it would COST to Repair, and WHAT is WRONG with this (eight year old) writing computer. My Dearest Family, Friends and Followers… Over the past FIVE YEARS I have written and PUBLISHED more than 650 articles at my FOUR blog locations. ALL these articles (along with one NOVEL 75% DONE and ANOTHER Novel 25% DONE)… I REALLY DO N E E D this computer to write and publish. Without this machine… my voice WILL fall SILENT.
.

                Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. My Dear Shoevians for the past several weeks I have struggled with increased constant pain. I have tried, very hard, to overcome this pain and keep to a regular writing and publishing schedule. My reasons for this is two-fold. First, I long to write… to publish… to create! Without my ability to work a job, to clock in and work a job… a career that I love… my writing is my solace. Second, My Dear Shoevians, is YOU! For the past four years I have written an published for you! I do not do it for money… which, due to my current situation… I regret deeply. I do not put ads on my blogs. I do not make money from your; reading, learning, entertainment.

.

Now, due to an unforeseen circumstance, I am without my computer. This computer has; my Word program, my Voice-to-Text (Dragon Speaking) program, my Animation program, my Publishing program, ALL of my 650+ articles and all of my passwords saved in memory. I have owned this laptop (HP DV 9500t CTO) computer since Christmas 2007. ALL of my best writing was done on this laptop computer. I know how it works, I know how to publish quickly and easily on this computer. Now, due to a mistake I made while panicking, the video card (built into the motherboard) is fried!

.

This laptop computer cost me (roughly) $2,000.00 eight years ago (this Christmas). Today, it will cost me about $400 to have it repaired. Another 17.5′ laptop computer; of equal power and ability, with NEW licensing for all the writing/editing/publishing/animation programs will cost me much more than having it repaired. You see, My Dear Shoevians, it is not just the cost of another laptop replacement. I can find that, at WalMart refurbished/clearance for $500-$600. However, then I have to purchase another; Word Processing program (WORD preferably… I know how to use Word… like, in my sleep), Speech-to-text program, Publisher program (for newsletters, fliers, business cards, and everything else I use and need), animation program (I am looking to replace/upgrade the ‘Sunday Funnies’ series with MY animations), Iolo System Mechanic Professional, Anti-Virus program, and ALL of the other programs I have and USE on this laptop computer.

.

All told, I would have to spend another $500-$600 on programs just to get another new laptop up to the quality and usability of my current laptop. Over the past ten days I have given this a great deal of thought, consideration and soul-searching. This is the best and cheapest course of action. Now, for the kicker!

.

My Dear Shoevians, I am in no financial position to purchase; a new laptop and all the software I need to produce and publish at the professional level I have for the past five years. My Dear Shoevians, it has been years since I have asked for any assistance. Any financial support whatsoever, and I am proud of that fact. I do not like/enjoy/relish asking anyone for any kind of help. It goes against my upbringing, against my belief(s)… and it hurts to ask… and hurts even MORE when I fail to garner much needed support.

However, without any assistance I will be unable to; write, publish, inform, entertain and share my views. This is, already, causing me grief and frustration. If you are a Facebook friend, you will have (likely) seen evidence of this in my posts. My writing and publishing is my creative outlet. It gives me center, it distracts me from my constant and growing levels of pain. Without it, I feel more pain and I sleep less and my sleep is fitful. I am in shambles. I am beside myself. I am without my center… without my creative outlet… without my reason for living.

I know that appears extreme… and I do not want to frighten anyone. I am not in a ‘dark place’ and not having hurtful thoughts. That is a reality, but it is getting more and more difficult to make it through each day. My Dear Shoevians, my need is genuine. This is not some pseudo-cry-for-help, I genuinely need financial assistance to get my writing/publishing laptop computer back up and running. I would be willing to sign an agreement to repay any funds! I could manage to pay back $50 a month, and not loose too much food… or medications.

My Dear Shoevians, I deeply apologize for coming to you and asking for help. I am willing to provide evidence that the computer is being repaired. An invoice for the repairs, pictures of the ‘Device Manager’ showing that the video adapter is not working. Screenshots of the desktop with the visual artifacts that prove it is the video card. I am willing to provide any/all evidence that all monies will go to the repair of the laptop and to NOTHING ELSE!

This computer has been at my side since Christmas 2007! EVERYTHING I have written for The Other Shoe(s) has been written on THIS computer! I have a creative-bond with this computer. Right now I am writing this article on a borrowed computer without Word or any word processor. I downloaded and installed “Open Office’ to create this article. I do not think I will/would be able to ‘barrow’ this computer often…

.

My Dear Shoevians, my back is against the wall! I am fearful of being without… it, and without my creative outlet.

.

PLEASE! My Dear Shoevians, PLEASE consider assisting me? I have TRIED and TRIED and TRIED to find a way other than what I ask here today!

.

Want to know how desperate I am? I am going to publish my PHONE NUMBER and EMAIL so that someone can help! It SACRES ME GREATLY to do so… but I just cannot think of a way to get the help I need… in a timely fashion.. without sharing this contact information. I am using PayPal to get donations, just use my email to donate enzomatrix@earthlink.net  ONCE I have obtained the help… I will remove this information HOPING that I have not invited disaster… already. PLEASE My Dear Shoevians… reach out and HELP? (714) 931-2436. enzomatrix@earthlink.net at PayPal for donations. THANK YOU!

.

PLEASE HELP ME?

.

Thank you!

Full Earth View of the Three Pacific Hurricanes 2015

Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe . and Three Category Four Pacific Hurricanes. It is not often when I share meteorological information and images here at The Other Shoe. However, with the greatly increasing ocean temperatures (the Indian and Pacific oceans featured in this article) and the rapid progression of ‘Global Warming’ I image that this will become a more and more frequent event. First, My Dear Shoevians, I simply must apologize for my absence the past three days. I have spent the past seventy-two hours engulfed in some of the most horrific pain I have everexperienced in my entire life. Yes, it is my neck, and I have found new meaning to the expression ‘Pain in my neck’!

Republican McCarthyism Then and Now

Welcome back MY Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. Today I share ‘Republican Party McCarthyism – Then and Now’ about the current state of our Republican Party. Over the past decade we have seen a shift in tactics and rhetoric used by elements of the Republican Party. Looking back, over the shoulder of our national political dialogue, we can see that this shift actually started with (R) Rep. Newt Gingrich of Georgia and his ‘Contract with America’. But, I get ahead of myself and my story line.

A Precocious Black Hole

Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. Today is Tuesday August 25th, 2015 and this is the most recent edition of (and the return of) ‘Coming Soon to The Other Shoe’. When I started by battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (nearly one year ago) I stopped publishing this article series. I did this because… well, My Dear Shoevians, I did not want to promise articles and have my health prohibit my keeping a promise. Today I a, going to give it a go and write and publish my very first edition of ‘Coming Soon to The Other Shoe’ in a long, long, time.
