Where to find clues to the future Donald Trump Government.

Signing up for government service includes a possibility across all departments and services:

You may get your ass kicked.

You’ll get it from a supervisor who wants you to do more than your pay grade so he can do less than his.

You may get it from colleagues who see you as a stepping stone to the next promotion, the people who understand the supervisor is a jerk, but still do the work he asks without complaint.

You’ll get it from the department head who sees you as a replaceable part in the big machine.

Everyone knows this stuff, right?

The military side is a little more direct. Not everyone knows this. [Read More…]

OREGON DUCK FOOTBALL LONELINESS IS REAL

Oregon Duck Football loneliness grows after Colorado loss. What’s next? “Winners do what losers won’t do.” That’s the saying all winners fall back to in victory, the other team did more to win. It’s also an excuse for bad sportsmanship since time erases all but the final score. Winners celebrate, dance, sing. They party and […]

OREGON COACH RON FINLEY

Youth passes with the people important in our youth: Oregon Coach Ron Finley. How does anyone leave a small town? Some never do, and the towns are all better for it. Oregon Coach Ron Finley left Newberg on a wrestling mat and he never got off. The sports world is better for him. For some […]

PORTLAND’S LEBRON? CLYDE DREXLER

Soon to be Damian Lillard as Portland’s LeBron? Every team has it’s guy, it’s face, it’s go to player. When you say their name you know their team. Will LeBron James ever sound like Miami? Dwyane Wade carries that one. Cleveland? They’ve got LeBron for eternity. He’s the Chosen One, The King, and he’ll wear […]

LEBRON OR LEBRAWN, MAN’S GAME

Game of the year or MAN’S GAME OF THE YEAR? The Cavs needed their biggest star to stop being LeBron the facilitator and become LeBrawn the hammer. Then I googled LeBrawn. Not exactly the idea I was aiming for, but still within the metaphor. The Game Six outcome was foretold in the beginning when a […]

OLD MAN LEBRON STILL GOT GAME

Old man LeBron not old enough to be old. If you watch sports for life lessons, then watching LeBron is a graduate course. He’s been in the finals for six straight years and two different teams. So we think we know him. And we’re wrong. The only reason LeBron seems old is by the dewy […]

DONALD TRUMP: A NEW YORKERS’ NEW YORKER

Whatever else his is, or says he is, Donald Trump is 100% New Yorker. If you’ve lived in New York, or live in New York now, you know the deal. Say the name New York and the same image pops up. Upstate isn’t that image. As a group, New Yorkers live in a media laboratory. […]

TIGARD LIBRARY LAST RETURN

Tigard Library fans? One of the biggest just checked out. Thomas Jefferson said he couldn’t live without books. Life without books? TJ sold his library to Congress after a bad fire. Turns out America couldn’t live without a Library of Congress, couldn’t live without books, like Jefferson. Joan Hensey couldn’t live without books, either; she […]

POLYFACE FARMS, POLYFACE BOOMER JOEL SALATIN

The grass farmer of Polyface Farms. At a certain age you give yourself clearance to review your life, your accomplishments, the mountains you’ve climbed. If you have any laurels, you rest on them, trusting the comforts of your effort won’t wear thin. When is that time? Don’t ask me, and most of all, don’t ask […]

FIRST RESPONDERS READY TO GO

In exhibition or action, First Responders are first for a reason. Every emergency, natural or man made, needs the same thing: HELP! First Responders are that help. The more you know about them, the harder their job feels.

ANXIOUS MILLENNIALS? WHO ISN’T ANXIOUS?

Anxious Boomers worse than Anxious Millennials? Who carries stress worse, young people or old? Millennials are the young part, boomers the old part. Which group is more stressed? Ask around, or look in the mirror and ask these questions;

POLICE STOP PROTOCOL FOR BOOMERS

Driving 80 in a 55 means behave yourself. A police stop protocol when you’re pulled over in the middle of nowhere for speeding goes like this: From the beginning: – This car has a little growl when you punch it. You ever punch it? = No, I’m not a race car driver and neither are […]

MUSEUM BINGE TOUR, pt 1, Ginevra de’ Benci

Lots of museums and little time? Take a Museum Binge Tour. The museum binge tour saying goes like this: “Everything on every wall isn’t worthy of the same scrutiny, so move on, rookie.” If you’re one of those, a museum binge tour runner, or act like one, you’ll need to do some explaining. Tell the […]

BIG LAND OWNERS NEED POLYFACE FARMING, pt2

Polyface farming for 6 – 10 on big land list. Part one listed 1-5 huge land owners. The idea is matching land, money, and a famous farmer, Joel Salatin. Is it a reach? Sure, a big reach. Is it impractical? No more than eating chem-food designed in a lab is impractical. Who are the big […]

CAN HUGE LAND OWNERS LEARN POLYFACE FARM?

If acquisition saves land, why not Polyface Farm it for improvement? These are the biggest land owners in America. Millions of acres for billionaires getting into land conservation, ranching, and farming. The farming part and ranching part remind me of Polyface Farms. Could land owners partner with Joel Salatin to turn farming and ranching into […]

EMOTIONAL FITNESS: AS THE BARBELLE TURNS

Does a gym help emotional fitness? The gym rat with the gallon jug, pill pack, and headband, don’t workout for emotional fitness . The only way they’d focus on emotional fitness is if they could see it in a mirror with a pulsating vein. Gym regret is a sign of good gym emotional fitness, like: […]
