The Time Has Come for a Real Wealth Tax by John C. Dvorak

The Time Has Come for a Real Wealth Tax by John C. Dvorak

Let’s start by understanding that a wealth tax is no different than property taxes, which have been collected by the states for decades. Property taxes often pay more than a fair share of state debts in places like Washington State, Texas, and Florida. This is in lieu of state incomes taxes. Sales taxes pick up most of the rest.

Your website sucks (and here's why)

I am going to rush through some of the most obvious things that suck about your website that pop up and occur to me. These are general mistakes, concerns, and issues—I haven’t the time nor the impulse to collect and shame all of the perpetrators and perpetuators of this sort of thing, probably because I don’t make my money from web application development. So, without further ado, here’s my list of web application disasters and mistakes that very well should have been sorted out by last Thursday, 2013.

Intermittent Fasting (IF) has suppressed my appetite

Intermittent Fasting (IF) has suppressed my appetite

When you get into the IF life you think you’ve got it made. One Meal a Day (OMAD) sounds awesome. Why gave three or four baby meals (like a bunny) over the course of a day when you can have one 1,500-2,000 calorie Viking’s Feast every day?

Why I’ve been MIA on RNNR

Why I’ve been MIA on RNNR

I realize that I haven’t posted since June 26th and I can explain. My heartbeat converted from sinus rhythm to atrial fibrillation (AFib) on that day and hasn’t popped back into sinus rhythm on its own (which is can and often does) which means that I am benched until I can get my healthy heartbeat back.

It’s a very difficult job and the people that go into nursing do so with the expectation that they will have to make sacrifices to their own lives and deal with difficult situations in the name of helping other people.

Gerris Corp is proud to support Purple Project for Democracy with Pro-Bono Services

We at Gerr.is believe in the ideal of our democratic republic and what is has offered America and Americans in various forms of freedom-for-all over the course of the last 243 years. I believe that Purple Project for Democracy is not only a diff check (a program that compares files in order to determine how or whether they differ) but attempt to either reboot democracy or at least rollback the divisiveness, suspicion, resentment and violent hatred that each half of the country has for the other.

I needed to have a Mindfulness practice and chose the daily prayers that the Anglo-Catholic Episcopal Church likes to follow based on the Book of Common Prayer and at least 4 times a day prayers based somewhat on how the Benedictine Monks and Monasteries prayed, including Matins, Lauds, Vespers, and Compline.

I tried a bunch of editing stuff and splitting stuff. I don't even know if the storytelling is linear or if it's even listenable with all the clips and so forth in between and I am pretty sure the files got shuffled and are out of order so maybe the end of the story is at the beginning. So, I put in a warning. Otherwise, enjoy!

Pretty much just a My Dinner With André sort of thing, the sort engaged in by the madman who lives under the bridge. Enjoy and let me know what's up with you and what you think!

The southern border of the United States is not a finish line

The southern border of the United States is not a finish line

For me, the immigration debate comes down to commercial airlines’ safety instructions: "put your oxygen mask on first, before helping others." Until every rural American—the welcome wagon at most borders and border towns—feels heard, loved, fed, supported, educated, included, and respected—prosperous (prosperity breeds generosity)—then they will never feel like they can ever affix an oxygen mask on a stranger.
