"Aiming For the 21st Century" contains songs, poems and essays. Its content is political, and is focused on issues relating to life in the US that is compromised by intrusions of genuine harm and
death by government policies the population has not taken control over and dissolved. Some content may not seem familiar but addresses conditions that loom and will prevail if society does not
become aware of abuses in certain social areas such as the marginalizing and dismissing of seniors and elders, and the infirm on many levels as well as doing the same to the general population.

Sovietized Homeland Security

Submitted: December 04, 2016

There must be a firewall between the US social welfare programs of Social Security and Medicare. Otherwise, a democracy has one system protected at the expense of another. The promise of receiving an earned financial security stipend at 65, 66 or 70 is met with a veiled program to deny those at the same age from receiving life-sustaining medical care that they are used to and expect, have a right to, and are paying for regardless of having passed an arbitrary birth anniversary. As an agency, Homeland Security has set protections for its sub-agencies and employees who might otherwise face litigation for carrying out "guidelines" which clearly disaffect the population, and can lead to euthanasia of it. The guidelines, if government workers and their extensions follow them, set up a random kill, yet it is a focused kill. The correction for the US is awareness and action, and a commitment to care for and protect all elders, seniors, and at-risk others from those agents in our societies who blindly serve, for their own advancement, the evils wrought upon society by such guidelines as those promulgated by Homeland Security. Once again, the responsibility is on all citizens to bring a ramrod force against the crystalized covert legislation that has set itself against democratic freedoms, make transparent and break down the evil within, and replace it with legislative protections, if need be, to assure wellness and health care at all levels for all. This includes, taking a critical look at the specialties of geriatrics and pediatrics to discern if they are simply euthanistic and eugenic arms of an agency with ultimately an evil intent. Perhaps it may be best for the US to break the sub-agencies under Homeland Security apart again and make them their own individual entities, a Brexit from Homeland Security, if you will.

Women - Forty Years Onward

Submitted: September 07, 2017


After 40 years, where are women, and where are we all subsequent to effort by women to gain equal opportunity in the work place? The public and political inroads seemed to plateau after 20-25
years, though women's prominence has grown in quantity. Was the goal reached? Meantime business and government was following a track of its own, only now being clarified, to separate society into
two classes, a select rich, and illiterate robotized workers, dependent upon all adult men and women working.

Rest In Peace Children of the United States

Submitted: February 17, 2018


School shootings in the United States face a citizenry that has had enough. Research the story as it progresses of the effect of the school shooting east of the Everglades of Florida on Valentine's
Day 2018 on the people of the US who are making it clear we have had enough of the justification of more and more dangerous weapons being disseminated amongst our populace. The blame of "Mental
Illness" doesn't work anymore; not having it, no one, essentially, it would seem today, will listen to that any longer! Now it's time to become a real country again. If the adults in the room won't
do it, so we hear, the youth will.


Bypassing the Executive Branch of our government seems in order, if only to protect it from dastardly and divisive attacks by its nemesis, the National Rifle Association. The youth, et al, plan a
national school walkout. Other acts to follow, no doubt, and platitudes from Congresspersons may bring to them job loss with one bogus gun control expert in the Senate perhaps finally biting the
dust on her own failure to provide control.

White Elbows, The Downside of White Shoulders

Submitted: August 11, 2018


Once again - bullies on radar from any direction. Disrespect by bullies, of women, and of any others. Taking without asking permission. Seems like fear, this pushing in and forward, when you know
it is unacceptable. Still, hey - if you can get away with it; who cares about the ramifications? Who needs to think? So this essay uses the past popular perfume "White Shoulders" as a metaphor to
examine the gross misconduct by bullies being once again addressed in society at a high profile level.

Closing Philadelphia

Submitted: October 14, 2018


American Style Merchandising, Manufacturing and Industry Gone. The physical bodies take a little longer. Today, Sears may announce its expected bankruptcy, maybe a restructuring or maybe the
reality of a straight liquidation. The American model is defunct! It's a big story because the U.S. was built on the promise of independence, expressed through suffrage, but practiced through
proprietorship. As Universal Suffrage came to be, really, for all Americans, those three modums began to wane. Americans love Sears products? It is not all digital technology. The human factor is
there.

Tyrannosaurus Aquarius

Submitted: November 05, 2018


The skin of the earth is shifting. The past is coming back round and replacing the view we are used to...with artifacts, old perspectives that are new, something to help us understand the history
kept from us. Some of what we are seeing may be "salted mines" but much of it ties into our disconnected history over which we have been puzzling.

Is A Narcissistic Sociopath Targeting You From Within That Crowd of Your Associates?

Submitted: May 27, 2019

Letter to One Mayor

Submitted: July 06, 2019


A letter setting out how the concept of housing migrants, especially those who have crossed the southern border of the U.S. non-legally, into so-called "Sanctuary" cities, is non-sanctified. It is
a method used to target cultural heritage communities, home to the working class, for desolation, and demolition by power forces intent on taking over private land by power of eviction. This letter
copied to elected officials has been revised for reading clarity only.

Theys and Nays

Submitted: July 30, 2019


Media opinion talk hosts provoke listeners who can be influenced, to share newly acquired grievances, by picking up their guns, posting on social media their intentions, and engaging in mindless
acts of violence. The shooter is dismissed as mentally ill! And the media opinion hosts? They are rarely dismissed. Sometimes their sponsors are bullied away, but those entities often boomerang
back.

Americans; though there was one American onboard. It happened to persons of various countries, but mainly Chinese. Flight 777 crashes in Ukraine; almost 300 lost their lives. Common ground?

Libretto - Quien Es?

Submitted: September 06, 2019


"Billy, The Kid," is an American icon. Americans grow up identifying with him. Why? He is deemed an outlaw. He has not rested in peace. I believe there is one way to effect that. With all the
murder and murders effected from the U.S. all over the world, with that backdrop, it is time to look at American youth's key icon, an outlaw, through a wider lens, and with a more circumspect
perspective.
