Rhodingeedaddee is my node blog. See my other blogs and recent posts.


[6-16-2009 Update Insert: Most of what is in this space is now moot. I found out what I was doing wrong and have reinstated Archives and Labels searches. They do work. However, in certain cases you may prefer Labels to Archives. Example: 1976 Today begins in November of 2006 and concludes in December of 2006, but there are other related posts in other months. Note: Labels only shows 20 posts at a time. There are 21 hubs, making 21 (which is for 1976 Today) an older hub.] ********************************* to my online poems and song lyrics using Archives. Use hubs for finding archival locations but do not link through them. Originally an AOL Journal, where the archive system was nothing like the system here, this blog was migrated from there to here in October of 2008. Today (Memorial/Veteran's Day, May 25, 2009) I discovered a glitch when trying to use a Blogger archive. Now, it may be template-related, but I am unable to return to S M or to the dashboard once I am in the Archives. Therefore, I've decided on this approach: a month-by-month post guide. The sw you see in the codes here stood for Salchert's Weblog when I began it in November of 2006. It later became Sprintedon Hollow. AOL provided what were called entry numbers, but they weren't consistent, and they didn't begin at the first cardinal number. That is why the numbers after "sw" came to be part of a post's code. ************** Here then is the month-by-month post guide: *2006* November: 00001 through 00046 - December: 00047 through 00056 -- *2007* January: 00057 through 00137 - February: 00138 through 00241 - March: 00242 through 00295 - April: 00296 through 00356 - May: 00357 through 00437 - June: 00438 through 00527 - July: 00528 though 00550 - August: 00551 through 00610 - September: 00611 through 00625 - October: 00626 through 00657 - November: 00658 through 00729 - December: 00730 through 00762 -- *2008* January: 00763 through 00791 - February: 00792 through 00826 - March: 00827 through 00849 - April: 00850 through 00872 - May: 00873 through 00907 - June: 00908 through 00931 - July: 00932 through 00955 - August: 00956 through 00993 - September 00994 through 01005 - October: 01006 through 01007 - November: 01008 through 01011 - December: 01012 through 01014 -- *2009* January: 01015 through 01021 - February: 01022 through 01028 - March: 01029 through 01033 - April: 01034 through 01036 - May: 01037 through 01044 - ******************************************************* 1976 Today: 2006/11 and 2006/12 -- Rooted Sky 2007: 2007/01/00063rsc -- Postures 2007: 2007/01/sw00137pc -- Sets: 2007/02/sw00215sgc -- Venturings: 2007/03/00216vc -- The Undulant Trees: 2007/03/00266utc -- This Day's Poem: 2007/03/00267tdpc -- Autobio: 2007/04/sw00316ac -- Fond du Lac: 2007/04/00339fdl -- Justan Tamarind: 2007/05/sw00366jtc -- Prayers in December: 2007/05/sw00393pindc -- June 2007: 2007/06/sw00440junec -- Seminary: 2007/07/sw00533semc -- Scatterings: 2008/08/00958sc ** Song Lyrics: 2008/02/sw00797slc ********** 2009-06-02: Have set S M to show 200 posts per page.

d = decision If no changes that matter have occurred, when voting day for the next president of the these endangered United States comes, Senator John McCain (a politician I have liked at times over the years, but for whom I/ will not vote then) will be the Republican candidate; and either Senator Barrack Obama or Senator Hillary Clinton (neither of whom is a politician who sells what I would prefer to buy then) will be the Democratic candidate; and there will be outsider candidates. If someone could prove to me that an outsider candidate I would be willing to vote for then/ will have at that time a reasonable chance of winning, I would vote for that person. Yesterday over at Common Dreams I read Obama Is Right by Katrina vanden Heuvel and many of the comments. In one of those comments was the conclusion that a vote for an outsider candidate would in effect be a vote for McCain, that is if/ that vote/ would have been cast for the Democratic candidate otherwise. I agree. Therefore, aside from not voting, I will vote for whichever senator is the Democratic candidate. The central reason men gathered to form this nation was the tyranny of King George III. What besets this nation now, and indeed the world, is oligarchic tyrrany based on the so-called free market system. President Eisenhower, who had he felt as comfortable in his statesman role as he felt in his military role (difficult as that was) would likely have made some significant salutary changes, warned us about this. Given how insidiously the ruling powers have trapped those being ruled, it is hard to know what to do about our incarceration. After all, it is not totally odious. One could make, little by little, moves toward self-sufficiency, and wait for the overlord system to collapse; but then what? One could hasten its downfall by supporting only the clean and green, of which ethanol is not a part. See Care2 but avoid its petitions area. One could help promote, organize, and then convene a Peoples Congress. I, for one, would like to know what those who do not vote and those who've been disenfranchised think, even if as a group their opinions mirror the opinions of those whose votes do count. Two aspects of collusional oligarchic power which sadden me most are how easily it can eliminate what threatens it and/or how easily it can co-opt an adversarial creation. Alexander Hamilton was killed by Aaron Burr in a duel, but Hamilton's spirit (wherever it is) must be so excited it's about to pop/ out of its hiding place. At Wikipedia is this quick biography of Hamilton. Brian A. J. Salchert 2008-04-15
