You'll get emails whenever I post articles on OpEdNews

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly want: www.voteutah.us. I thank those who sent such wonderful comments, even though it forced me to go buy a few larger hats, which were among my top campaign expenses (just kidding).

My forever-to-write novel (now my favorite book for some unfathomable reason), A Summer with Freeman, finally got out the door, via Kindle and CreateSpace. Readers of this site, and anyone else with two or more brain cells who want some "serious humorous relief" may want to check it out: http://www.opednews.com/articles/A-Summer-with-Freeman-nov-by-Daniel-Geery-130528-385.html

My family and I lived off the grid in an earth-sheltered, solar powered underground house for 15 years, starting in the early '80s, proving, at least to myself, the feasibility of solar power. Such a feat would be much infinitely easier with off-the-shelf materials available now, though the bureaucracy holding us back is probably worse. http://www.opednews.com/articles/Living-on-Sunshine-Underg-by-Daniel-Geery-110318-547.html

I wrote a book on earth-sheltered solar greenhouses that has many good ideas, but should be condensed from 400 down to 50 pages, with new info from living off the grid. It's on my "to do" list, but you can find used copies kicking around online. Just don't get the one I see for $250, being hawked by some capitalist... well, some capitalist.

I'm 68 with what is now a 26 year old heart--literally, as it was transplanted in 2005 (a virus, they think). This is why I strongly encourage you and everyone else to be an organ donor--and get a heart transplant if you're over 50, unless your name is Dick Cheney.

I may be the only tenured teacher you'll meet who got fired with a perfect teaching record. I spent seven years in court fighting that, only to find out that little guys always lose (http://www.opednews.com/articles/Letter-to-NEA-Leadership--by-Daniel-Geery-101027-833.html; recommended reading if you happen to be a parent, teacher, or concerned citizen).

I managed to get another teaching job, working in a multi-cultural elementary school for ten years (we had well over 20 native tongues when I left, proving to me that we don't need war to get along--no one even got killed there!). http://www.opednews.com/articles/opedne_daniel_g_060716_alternatives_to_exti.htm

I spent a few thousand hours working on upward-gliding airships, after reading The Deltoid Pumpkin Seed by John McPhee. But I did my modelling in the water, so it took only two years and 5,000 models to get a shape that worked. You can Google "aquaglider" to learn more about these. As far as I know, this invention represents the first alteration of Archimedes'principle, spelled out 2,500 years ago.

"Airside," the water toys evolved into more of a cigar shape, as this was easier to engineer. Also, solar panels now come as thin as half a manila folder, making it possible for airships to be solar powered. You can see one of the four I made in action by Googling "hyperblimp"(along with many related, advanced versions).

Along with others, I was honored to receive a Charles Lindbergh Foundation Award, to use my airships to study right whales off Argentina. Now we just have to make it happen and are long overdue, for reasons that would probably not fit on the internet.

In 2010 I married a beautiful woman who is an excellent writer and editor, in addition to being a gourmet cook, gardener, kind, gentle, warm, funny, spiritual, and extremely loving. We met via "Plenty-of-Fish" and a number of seemingly cosmic connections. Christine wrote Heart Full of Hope, which many readers have raved about, as you may note on Amazon.

I get blitzed reading the news damn near every day, and wonder why I do it, especially when it's the same old sh*t recycled, just more of it. In spite of Barbara Ehrenreich and reality, I'm a sucker for positive thinking and have read many books on it. I find many many of them insane and the source of much negativity on my part. My favorites these days are by Alan Cohen, who seems to speak my language, and likewise thinks a bit like Albert Einstein did (as do I on this note). Albert: "Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible laws and connections, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent, in fact, I am religious."

Though I rapidly note that I've kept alive my deceased and "devout atheist" friend's book, http://www.opednews.com/articles/The-Foundation-of-Religion-by-Daniel-Geery-110510-382.html

Lastly, kudos to Rob Kall and those who make OEN the site that it is: one of the last bastions of free speech.

Rocky Anderson: "Not a Snowball's Chance in Hell!" The other evening we had dinner with some good friends, when I mentioned that I was volunteering for Rocky Anderson in the Justice Party Campaign. The fellow who sat across from us replied without hesitation, "He hasn't got a snowball's chance in hell!" Not with malice, simply as a statement of fact.

My Question to Planned Parenthood: "Why have kids?" There are many reasons not to have kids... a few of my own: I don't want to put myself through the pain of pregnancy and childbirth; kids annoy me and I'm not very good with them; the world is a horrible place and I couldn't subject an innocent child to that; I'm very self-centered and kids would be a drain on my time and financial resources; I'd probably be a miserable failure as a parent anyway...

Amazingly, I later became a teacher of third, fourth, and sixth grade, and I did that for twenty years. It's hard to explain even to myself, but I do like kids and working with them.

We likewise know that north is "up," south is "down," Australia and New Zealand are places "down under," meaning they are "down under the equator," on the bottom half of the planet.

Utah & U.S. Moral Compass: Wither will it turn? Part 2 Given Romney's relation to Utah , I believe this is a rather significant article.

It is only with the most careful study and comparison, research and contemplation, even prayer, that we are able to arrive upon the most worthy recipient. As one may correctly surmise, the purpose of the Glass Bellybutton is to enable the owner to see more clearly.

Great evidence of how we founded the U.S. of A., and why it's high time it went down in flames--imho. The attackers should be ashamed, as they shame us and their own families.

You need not be an experienced hiker or mountain climber to give a moment's thought to the visual image of finding yourself coming upon a steep and rocky cliff, which you cannot get down or around, given its vast length and depth.

I now offer the classroom teacher and concerned citizens something beyond mindless tests and meaningless numbers for evaluating kids.

Nothing lost, nothing gained; nothing tried, you're a bigger Dumbo than those you criticize! So I paid my dues, $1,305 or something, then realized I had to have something to say.

I also offer other possibilities that have been on my mind and growing over the past four decades or so.

The Green Party, running Dr. Jill Stein for President--on a platform more progressive than Bernie Sanders--has been totally ignored by the establishment. Abby Martin sits down with Dr. Stein to look at how her career in medicine helped her political thinking.

Bulldozing the Garden We are living in a madhouse of our own creation, a full-blown insane asylum, a loony bin of global proportions. We are ravishing the earth, sucking its resources dry, destroying the very support systems that all life on the planet depends on. What can be done to stop bulldozing the Garden of Earth?

To collapse or to continue? No more helium-- a sign of global warming? Do we have the brains and the will to avert the disasters coming our way? A harbinger of events to come bears a message.

For Sander's Advocates in Utah What a great showing at our Grassroots meeting on Saturday! A lot of energy in the room as we prepared for Neighborhood Caucuses on March 22 at 7:00 pm (your only chance to vote in the 2016 Democratic Presidential primary). We also heard from our Democratic candidates for County Council At-Large B and mapped our plan for 2016. Needed: Pulling hiding Dems out of hiding.
