SamHenry is Writing Again

March 31, 2015


Whenever I can, I will be writing again.  I suffer from chronic arthritis and have difficulty sitting long periods or even standing to type.  I have missed writing greatly.  I hope pain medications will not fog up the brain power! It seems these days that the bad is gaining on the good worldwide.  What seems […]

No War Yet; No Loss In International Standing Yet- Strange

September 11, 2013


Enough of the “we have to contain this weapon and curb its use” talk from governments including our own.  Just before the Iraq war, one story had it that Hussein moved his arsenal of nerve gas to Syria (imagine).  Who is to say that not only we but our enemy operatives now have stockpiled nerve […]

Al Jazeera America – Can Money Buy Success?

August 25, 2013


Many people think that TV station al Jazeera America is owned by al Qaeda. In point of fact, it is owned by the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al ThaniPast who has that stunning wife who has made an art form of the hajib and who hobnobs with European and American “royalty.” Still […]


March 31, 2013


It seems foreign press is taking Korea’s declaration of war more seriously than the US Fourth Estate: Yet when Kim Jong-un’s government declared early on Saturday that the “time has come to stage a do-or-die final battle”, and declared relations with South Korea to be “at the state of war”, the warnings were not being […]

Slow Slide Toward Citizen Separation

January 12, 2013


So many of the issues we have made important in recent years have eroded trust and an ability for citizens to work together for the greater good.  The polarity that exists now among many seems beyond repair. However, do we have to accept the inabilities of those in the public eye to successfully hammer out […]

SamHenry and her scooter – life at waist level continues

December 16, 2012


The son of one of my aides poses next to the new patio that will serve as a “turn table” for my scooter.  The view is from my back porch.  Life at waist-level continues.  It looks as if surgery on the hip will not be before late spring.  Ugh!  But hang in there with me.

SamHenry Discovers Life in a Wheelchair

October 27, 2012


Life in a wheelchair?  Only temporary we hope.  But a couple of conditions that have developed aside from the need for a new hip have resulted in life at waist level.  Not being able to care for oneself is not the end of the world, it just teaches you about a new one. Who pays […]

Mitt Romney – Lost My Vote 9-11-2012

September 13, 2012


Mitt’s Mouth has lost my vote for him.  No matter the accuracy of his remarks, it was poor form for him to respond to a developing  crisis  in the Middle East that occurred on the anniversary of the infamous attack on our soil in NYC with an ad hominem attack on the President.  He did […]

Obama Has Data Base on Us That Needs Regulation And It Is For His Campaign

June 10, 2012


Question:  When does a database kept on possible voters cross the privacy line?  The one Barack Obama has developed to help in his campaign this go round is more formidable than the last time he ran.  Now it includes information on who your friends are and how your mother voted in the last election.  This […]

We Tear Down Everything From Celebraties to Governments – Where Has Respect Gone

May 26, 2012


The UK’s Daily Mail likes to dish the latest about celebrities worldwide. They do not spare anyone a close look and/or a teardown. For example, the ladies below and their feet – yes their feet. The Mail took a good look where others don’t bother to tread and came up with some unkind images and […]

Pilgrimage to Cornwall – Via Bath and Many Misadventures

April 29, 2012


The videos tell it all.  They will be uploaded over time. This first is the Fast Train from Sofitel Hotel at Terminal 5 at Heathrow  Airport to Paddington Station. This next finds me at Paddington Station where I was making a video and interrupted by a trainsman who restored my purse to me that I […]

The Battle in America Isn’t Racial

April 18, 2012


Tangela Ekhoff  wrote an opinion piece on that makes some good points. She both casts her critical gaze at the KKK and whites as well as Al Sharpton & Company and blacks. But is it really about race?  Or is it a battle of enlightened, God-fearing minds against the darker forces of human nature […]

Christ Needed Us to Watch With Him; Democracy Demands We Watch It’s Fading Flame

April 4, 2012


At key moments in history, we have been asked to watch and/or to bear witness. Our active participation has been summoned. A phrase that has always moved me almost to tears is the one Christ uttered Maundy Thursday “would not ye watch with me for an hour”? addressed to his sleeping comrades. John F. Kennedy […]

Why Romney Can’t Wrap This Up on His Schedule

March 27, 2012


George Romney is all for circumventing the opportunity for all states to participate in the primary and vote for a  few choices rather than confirm one choice.  Down the road, there should be a move to have one primary day. It would save candidates money – something we need to do to encourage the less […]

4-methylimidazole – In Colas? Thought to Cause Cancer in Lab Rats for over 2 years Yet FDA says it’s safe

March 10, 2012


The chemical 4-methylimidazole is found in the color for regular and diet colas. An alleged scientific study a couple of years ago claims that has gone unchecked.  Now Coke and Pepsi have said that they will be reducing the amount of this chemical in their products but not eliminating it.  They have garnered support from […]
