Almost Paradise“Almost Paradise” $2.50
On February 13, 1987, I stood in the warm sun on a tiny, nearly deserted island, some 2,000 miles southwest of Honolulu. Next to the bed in my trailer were the remains of two damaged Peacekeeper MX (unarmed) nuclear warheads. And just hours later, two reinforcements arrived by chopper with the news that a Russian recon security team (Spetsnaz) was coming ashore that night.
This journal was kept from 1986-88 when the Soviet Union was on the verge of collapse but their presence at Kwajalein was intense, requiring critical decisions at the highest level of our government.

Climate Change“CLIMATE CHANGE: How To Find A Safe Haven” $2.00
CLIMATE CHANGE includes a brief history of how corporations in 1999 persuaded the United Nations to support the building of regional trading regions and trade agreements between nations, creating a global system of governance based on those trade agreements, appointed institutions, and international regulations.
That’s why no one in elected office will do anything about climate change. Corporations are officially meeting with elected government officials from various nations and “advising” them on how to build and run these regions. So the decision was to pursue “growing the economy” and attack climate change when they have the time and money.

A look at the serious and not so serious events in life, from “The Last Can Opener” to “Smiley”, the images are from real people, places, and events.
Also included here are SIAM stories, a look at life in Nakhorn Phanom (NKP), Thailand during the Vietnam War. NKP is next to the Mekong River in Northeast Thailand and the Thai Air Force Base is a few minutes drive west of the town. Just across the river is Laos and in the dry season you could walk over to the other side, illegally. The stories in SIAM include my experiences after forgetting to bring a passport when returning from the United States and meeting the Queen of That Phanom on a bus traveling across the Khorat Plateau. Includes meeting the famous Gecko with video. This is also a chance to become more knowledgeable about SIAM.

Grants ChapelGrants Chapel Alley $2.00
Grants Chapel Alley is based on true events. Good days were when life was merely unpleasant. The tiny houses that were behind Grants Chapel Alley were modeled after slave cabins. This was life in Macon, Georgia in 1950.
These cabins were built with tin roofs and no inner walls or ceilings, even in the winter. The rent for each “home” was $6.00 a month and owned by a realty company. Included were a couple of light bulbs, a gas stove on the rear porch and a cold faucet. And there was an outhouse for each home. A regular commode was put in later by the realtors and placed in the middle of each bedroom with a white curtain around for privacy.
There were no chances for advancing in the local commerce, since all good jobs were off limits to Black men and women in general. Education in the public schools and college were off limits to those of “color”.

Presidential CrimesWhen Presidents Turn On America $2.50
George H.W. Bush was the first president to declare that he was in the process of integrating the Americas that would be set up as a trading region. The first effort was the FTAA, the Free Trade Area of the Americas but some of the nations decided to not join the FTAA in Miami in 2005.
In addition, governance would be under United Nations laws that would be enforced on all member states of the Americas. For the United States there would no longer be a First Amendment or a Second Amendment. For starters, the United Nations would, once enacted, cover all member states of the world based on UN laws.
George W. Bush tried to pass such an (UN) agreement during his terms but it failed.
The FTAA “government” would be based on a trade agreement that governs the daily life of the 34 nations of the Western Hemisphere. Everything would be set up by corporate CEOs and economic activity would be maintained through governing agencies of the regional areas.
