Federal Reserve pumping up an animal balloon. Jobs in the hard to inflate appendages.
My crude attempt at making a cartoon (collage) about the economy. Collage as parts are borrowed images from the net; from people that can draw better than me. Cartoon is about how Federal Reserve pumps money into the economy to, supposedly, nurture good job...

Historic moment about GLBT issues at 2016 Republican National Convention
At around the 37 minute mark in Donald Trump's acceptance speech in the 2016 Republican Presidential Convention was an interesting segment. Talk about protecting GLBT people. I think this was the first positive mention of GLBT folks from a Republican pres...

Interesting Bellingham Herald article. Is Bellingham among the worst cities in America ? Finally, a pretty honest listing that might give some folks pause about moving to Bellingham. From article it says. The study found that “a typical home in (Bellingham...

Is Bellingham holding out too long for the high wage jobs?
Several port commissioners temporarily (at least) halted a hotel plan for Bellingham's Central waterfront redevelopment. They want to hold out for the possibility of something else; higher paid industrial, rather than hotel maid type jobs? Bellingham's be...

My review of a NASA video about Juno mission to Jupiter
My psychology is different than most of the movie going public. This trailer, about NASA's upcoming Jupiter mission, has been touted as a great breakthrough in NASA public relations. Good Hollywood appeal, but for me, it just adds to my anxiety level. It ...

Police relations with GLBTQ community seem better than with some segments of Black community
Black Lives Matter Vancouver wants police float out of Pride parade . Not being black, myself, I do have problems understanding the hostility toward police from Black Lives Matter. Seems like that hostility would be better directed against the gentrificatio...

Police in the news. Here's something the bloggers are talking about in this Northwest Washington area.
I might as well put in my two bits also. In our multi cultural society, misunderstandings can easily happen due to language barriers and so forth. An incident, in Sedro-Woolley, WA. has been creating buzz in media, talk shows and so forth; especially in thi...

Personally I don't hate the 1%. I just want a saner economy. Glad Sanders and Clinton are working together
Even though Clinton is a 1%er, herself, I (Robert) personally don't hate 1%ers. I just think we need better economic thinking to not be afraid of raising their taxes. I would say (even though it isn't in this article) no more Grover Norquist (the guy having...

Oil train going through Bellingham. Who remembers the Northern Tier Pipeline proposal?
Unlike the coal trains that carry coal for export to Asia, I hear that the oil trains rumbling through Bellingham are serving the Pacific Northwest market. Bringing oil to our local refineries from places like North Dakota. Mostly for consumption locally ...
