Kudos to Mark Zuckerberg for Apologizing

Mark Zuckerberg–the Jewish founder and CEO of the amazingly successful and ubiquitous Facebook–apologized yesterday on Yom Kippur for how his company may have unwittingly aided Russians trying to thwart the U.S. presidential campaign last year. Zuckerberg said, “For those I hurt this year, I ask forgiveness and I will try to be better,” he wrote in a brief post. “For the ways my work was used to divide people rather than bring us together, I ask for forgiveness and I… Read more

Will Iraqi Kurds’ Referendum Vote Lead to the Recreation of Ancient Assyria?

Six days ago, in defiance of the Iraq government, Iraqi Kurds held a referendum vote to secede from Iraq and form their own nation. The vote was an overwhelming 93% in favor of seceding. Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi condemned the vote. Turkey and the U.S. also ware against the referendum. It remains to be seen what will become of this Kurdish effort to form their own nation separate from Iraq. The Kurdish people live in Kurdistan–a name given to a… Read more

A Brief History of the Mass Market Paperback and Triangle Books

I first developed my “self-supporting book” invention in March, 2009. (It wasn’t any good and went through several improvements over the years. I now own two patents for two different embodiments of this invention. See “My Second Patent,” posted on this blog on September, 30, 2017.) My patent attorney filed a patent application for this invention months later in the same year, 2009. We also filed an application for the trademark “A Triangle Book” for this invention. My patent attorney… Read more

My Second Patent

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office recently granted me my second patent for “a self-supporting book.” My trademark that I own for it is “A Triangle Book.” I had a website of that name, took it offline, and will now put it back online soon. But it’s purpose is mostly just to inform the book publishing industry, not the public. However, you can learn from it what I’m trying to do. This is my second patent for “a self-supporting book.”… Read more

Is President Donald Trump a White Supremacist?

That is what The New York Times op-ed columnist Charles M. Blow, a black man, asked in his column on September 18th. He questioned it partly in response to ESPN host Jemele Hill saying on September 11th, “Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.” Blow provides evidence from Trump’s actions and words relating to this subject, and then Mr. Blow answers his own question as follows: “It is clear that Trump is… Read more

Black Church Pastor Affirms NFL Players Kneeling During National Anthem

Last year, San Francisco 49er quarterback in the NFL, Colin Kaepernick, kneeled during the singing of the National Anthem right before a nationally televised game as a form of silent demonstration calling the nation to attention regarding race relations. It was a controversial move. Many football fans objected, thinking it was unpatriotic. So did President Trump. One week ago today, President Donald Trump spoke at a political rally in Huntsville, Alabama, in which he highly criticized NFL players for kneeling… Read more

The King of Fake News Dies at Age 38

Fake news pioneer, Paul Horner, died at 38 years of age nine days ago on September 18th of what may have been an overdose of narcotics. He lived here in the valley–in Phoenix–where I live. The Arizona Republic reported today, “For at least six years, Horner sprayed the Internet with intentionally false stories designed to inflame readers. Those stories often went viral on Facebook, allowing him to misinform tens or hundreds of thousands of people–including eventual voters–from his Phoenix apartment.” Horner… Read more

Mother Teresa Says to Trump–“Guess I’m a Proud Bitch”

Colin Kaepernick is the former San Francisco 49ers football quarterback who received national attention last year when he kneeled before the 49ers nationally televised football game while the national anthem was being played. He did it as a silent protest to recent incidents in the U.S. of police brutality and unjust treatment of minorities, some even resulting in killing of blacks. Colin is black, but he doesn’t look like it much. Colin Kaepernick is an adopted child by his white… Read more

The Athletes Are Right And Trump Is Not–This Is About Racism

The dustup the past week between President Donald Trump and American pro athletes–especially NFL players and NBA players LeBron James and Stephen Curry–hits home for me since I was a PGA Tour pro golfer full-time for thirty years. Yeah, we never had many blacks on the Tour. But then Tiger Woods came along. Yet we used to have mostly black caddies. I stand with these athletes on this issue. They are right and Trump is wrong. As I said in… Read more

Palestinian Elections Are Planned

The October 2 issue of Time magazine has the following article by Jared Malsin entitled “Hamas takes a step away from isolation”: “The Islamist group Hamas agreed on Sept. 16 to elections in Gaza and the West Bank, raising the prospect of Palestinian reconciliation after 10 years of squabbling and violence. “The two Palestinian factions, Hamas and its secular rival Fatah, have been at odds since a 2007 civil war that left the Gaza Strip under Hamas control and the… Read more
