So, ask yourself one ya feel lucky...well do ya, punk?

One for all and all for one? By the people, for the people? No, I think not. It seems to me over the course of the history of developing the United States culture and society we have gone from a "one big family" to I do this for me and only me, I got here by doing what "I" had to do mentality. "If you want something done right then you have to do it yourself." We have become a society of individuals living as neighbors rather than a society of people living together.

I ask, what in the course of events happened to get us here? What defines who we are and why do we do the things we do? Where are we going and how did we get here?

Well, everyday...or nearly everyday...okay okay let us just go with every post from here on out will be of questions. I implore you to answer these yourself and leave them as feedback for me as a form of comment. If not...just answer them for "you."

These are question of a non-trivial sort. They are about your values, your beliefs, and your life; love, money, sex, integrity, generosity, pride, and death are all here. To respond to these questions, you will need to examine and interpret your past, project yourself into hypothetical situations, face difficult dilemmas, and make painful choices. I intend for these questions to expose issues that warrant deep, solitary reflection.

There will be no correct or incorrect answers of course...but only honest and dishonest ones. Try not and simply answer "yes" or "no" to these questions but rather probe and explain your responses and pursue interesting tangents.

All the Best
