Merchant marine experience on ocean research and oil exploration vessels in my youth. Ex-mechanical engineer, oil exploration equipment industry, commercial and military aerospace industries, SCUBA diving and respiratory protective breathing apparatus industries. Sport skin diver, spear fisher, scuba diver, fisherman, boat owner, football player, tennis player, husband, father, math teacher. Ex-Republican, not a fan of the Democratic Party either. Not very impressed with the reasoning ability of Progressives either, who seem gullible and incapable of envisioning the negative consequences of trying to create Utopia by law, but have a soft spot for them anyway because their heart is often in the right place. Long time interests include: political philosophy, ethics, economics, banking and monetary systems, criminology, the Second Amendment and gun control.

Let's Make a Deal, Part I - Green Shoots, World Great Depression, or a Brand New Car!
(1 comments) This article is dedicated to Monty Hall, host of the old TV game show "Let's Make a Deal". The "Monty Hall problem" involving three doors, two goats and a car was deceptively simple, stumping average people and university professors of mathematics alike. In my mind, it is a terrific metaphor for the problem of our modern banking/monetary system - simple, but so deceptive that few really understand it.

I Hate Cooked Bananas in My Veins
(1 comments) Ben Bernanke has the solution to the banks' banking crisis. If some people cannot pay their home loans, then change the "amount-owed" number on their loan to a smaller number, and voila! Problem solved. Oh, he hasn't got around to mentioning how yet, but he will eventually. Mark my words, Government WILL find a way to tax YOU to cover the bankers' losses.
