America is out of control

Letter to the Editor

Right now America is in the worst shape it’s ever been in since the Civil War. We have a president who is clueless and out of control. America is like being in a car driven by a 7 year old brat who has never driven before while the parents are passed out drunk on the back seat. Trump has no clue how to run a country and isn’t showing any interest in learning. Trump is just plain crazy!

It’s bad enough to have a president who lies, but one that believes his own lies is even more dangerous. He really thinks that an election where he lost the popular vote is a landslide. He talks about invading Mexico. He tells the courts “I’ll see you in court”. Trump is at war with Reality – and when you go up against Reality – Reality always wins.

Snowden “Gift” story is fake news!

Letter to the Editor

Stories in the press say that Putin is going to give Snowden to Trump as a “gift”. It comes from “intelligence sources”, and it’s all fake news. Our intelligence community are not only liars, but they aren’t even good liars. And when you think things through it’s rather obvious.

Snowden was Obama’s obsession, not Trump. Why would Putin even think that Trump was interested in Snowden? I would think that Trump would rather have a bottle of Vodka or sexy Russian spy to sleep with than someone who exposed America’s illegal activities. It doesn’t make sense.

Our intelligence community is out of control. Instead of learning what’s going on in the world they just make stuff up. They are expressing their personal hatred of Snowden for exposing their illegal activities. Heads should roll in the intelligence community. Their behavior borders on treason.

Gorsuch is bad choice for Supreme Court

Letter to the Editor

Trump’s choice of Neil Gorsuch is a really bad decision and would be a terrible justice for those of us who believe in personal liberty and freedom. In my case I have terminal stage 4 lung cancer and because I live in California I have the ability to choose how and when I will die. My religion is the Church of Reality which supports my religious right to choose. “My life, my choice.”

The Reality is that everyone dies. Having a terminal diagnosis is like being at a bar at 2:00 am and the bar tender announces the bar is closing and it’s time to leave. “Natural death” is like not leaving the bar and waiting till the bouncer violently throws you out on the street. My choice will be to leave on my own terms at a time and method of my own choosing.

Neil Gorsuch would take that away. He would impose his own personal philosophy and is own Protestant values on my life and my choice forcing me to slowly die of suffocation as a gasp for air over days. He believes that the Government, not the individual, gets to make my final life choices. And that his personal religion should be enshrined into law and imposed on the rest of us, even though, quite frankly my Reality based religion is a better religion than his stupid religion.

Gorsuch view that his personal religious values should become the law of the land is not constitutional and is not consistent with the intent of the Founding Fathers. It is not conservative in that the government should not be imposing itself into the lives of private people making decisions about their own lives. So I would urge Congress to reject Gorsuch and replace him with someone who will keep Uncle Sam off my death bed.

Republicans break it, Republicans Own It

Letter to the Editor

For the last 8 years Republicans did everything they could to make sure Obama failed, even when they agreed with what he wanted. Now the Republicans control the government and they are in charge of making America great rather than making America miserable. And in the last 8 year we went from total economic collapse to doing reasonably well.

Now that Trump is tinkering with Obamacare it is now Trumpcare. If they screw it up it’s on them. And if the Dems won’t help them, that’s on them too. There is an opportunity for Trump to really improve Trumpcare if they remove the law that prohibits the government from negotiating lower drug prices with the big drug companies. But I down Trump is man enough to go after Big Pharma the way he goes after women and poor Mexicans. In my mind that will be the real test to see if he’s serious or just some big blowhard clown. But now if Republicans break it, Republicans own it.

How does Nancy Pelosi feel about NSA spying now?

Letter to the Editor

When Bush was president then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was against NSA spying on Americans without a warrant. Then when Edward Snowden revealed that President Obama expanded NSA wiretapping of Americans she was for it, even though she was booed by Democrats at Netroots Nation.

Right before Obama left office he issues Executive Order 12333 greatly expanding NSA surveillance even more. But now that Trump is president I’d like someone to ask Pelosi how she feel about Trump having those expanded spying powers to tap our phones and emails? Is it sill OK or is she just for it when Democrats are in the White House?

Time for Dems to own their failure

Letter to the Editor

It’s one thing to lie, but it’s much worse if you start believing your own lies. That’s the problem of the Democratic Party these days. Trump didn’t get elected by the Russians and the whole Russian hacking story is 100% fiction. Democrats have to own it that they were so incompetent that they lost to a clown like Donald Trump.

Even as Trump is about to become president, the Democratic National Committee is lead by Donna Brazile who was fired from CNN for sneaking debate questions to Hillary so she could cheat against Sanders. Donna Brazille was also responsible for Al Gore losing to Bush in 2000. But Democrats don’t learn anything and keep doing the wrong thing over and over again.

We have real issues to be focusing on rather than the fake “Russian Hackers did it”. Obama just expanded the power of the government to spy on Americans just in time for Trump to use it against us and no one is paying attention to that. People are tired of Democrats being weak, stupid, and  incompetent to the point that just can’t stand it anymore. So it’s out of the pot and into the fire. Let the Apocalypse begin!

Obama in denial and acting like a child

Letter to the Editor

Democrats have this amazing ability that whenever Republicans do something stupid Democrats prove they can be even dumber. Case in point is Obama’s election denial insisting that Trump was elected by Russian hackers and expelling their diplomats. With the Republicans electing the big man baby Obama will not be outdone and acts more like a baby than Trump is.

What’s so ridiculous is that Snowden revealed that Obama hacked the entire planet spying on everyone, friend, foe, citizens, and non-citizens alike. America’s history includes assassination  of foreign leaders and the installation of puppet dictators around the world. So we have no moral high ground to decry anyone hacking us even if it did occur. If the Russians were truly hacking the election Obama should have done something about it before election day, but he chose not to. Besides, Julian Assange, who actually knows where the leak came from says it’s not Russian, and I believe him.

Obama is the second worst president after Bush that America has ever had. Now he’s just a disaster who is shredding what little dignity he has left in a final tantrum against the Russians who he failed to get along with. As we move to our third incompetent president in a row I would at least want to see the last president who I voted for twice go out with a little dignity.

Wikileaks and the Election

Letter to the Editor

I listened to Obama’s press conference where he accused the Russians of getting Trump elected by hacking email systems and giving the information to Wikileaks. But one thing no one has said is that the information leaked wasn’t true. So the real issue is whether or not the public should have access to the truth and Obama’s position is clearly NO. If Obama hadn’t been persecuting Julian Assange, and Edward Snowden and torturing Chelsea Manning in prison, maybe the leaks might have not been one sided. Obama has been at war with those who would expose the truth and we all know it, and if anyone is responsible for Trump getting elected Obama himself would carry more blame for that than Putin.

I guess no one told Trump that President is full time job?

Letter to the Editor

I read with both amusement and horror that The Donald is going to continue to run his businesses and TV shows like “Celebrity Apprentice” while he is president. And Trump is disinterested in to get his daily national security briefings. I guess no one told Donald Trump that being President of the United States is a full time job?

Little Donald cries about election recount

Letter to the Editor

I think it’s amazing that our man baby president elect is complaining about a recount in an election where he lost the popular vote by 2 million. After all, he’s the one who was saying that the election was rigged, and I believe him. But it was rigged in his favor.

I have decided I’m not accepting the election result that Trump won. Trump said before the election that he wouldn’t accept the result if Hillary won and he never accepted that Obama won claiming that Obama wasn’t born in America. Trump was helped by Russian hackers and our new first lady will be America’s first Soviet born Communist raised first lady. So the results of the election are meaningless to me. I intend to give Trump all the respect he gave Obama.

I have a hard time believing that women voted for a pu**y grabbing playboy, that Christians voted for someone who referred to his daughter as a “piece of ass”. There comes a point where it’s just too weird to believe and so I don’t. Trump is a dunce and a clown and he’s incompetent. America is in deep deep trouble regardless of what you believe.

Democrats should help Trump be Successful

Letter to the Editor

Like many people I voted for Hillary just to wake up in an alternate universe where Trump is president. Now what do we do? Since we are stuck with Trump and he has no experience we are by definition in trouble. But putting aside the shear shock of what’s happened we have to come together for the sake of keeping civilization from crashing.

I would like to see – for example – experienced Democrats, maybe even a Clinton, reach out to Trump and become part of his cabinet. Trump isn’t really a Republican and I understand most of what he said was just to get elected. But now it is time to govern and we can’t afford to be dysfunctional, even though it would be justified to do to Trump what Republicans did to Obama. We have to try to find opportunity in tragedy and bring some sort of sanity back into the process.

Think before you Vote!

Letter to the Editor

Tuesday is election day and it’s very important to vote because when you wake up in the morning on Nov. 9th do you want to be freaked out that either Trump or Clinton will become president and you didn’t vote? Especially in this election – who do you want to be stuck with for the next 4 years? We have an opportunity to vote for the person we want the most or, in this election, the person who disgusts us the least. And it’s good to think things through to avoid regret. Vote Nov. 8th because on Nov. 9th we are all going to be stuck with the consequences of our decision.

Does experience matter for a President?

Letter to the Editor

There’s a question about this election that no one seems to be asking. Can someone like Trump who has never held public office become the most powerful person on the planet and not crash civilization? Is being president something that just anyone off the street can do?

If you were getting an operation would you trust your life to someone who has never been in an operating room? Would you take your car to a mechanic who has never worked on a car before? So why would we trust the fate of America to an ill tempered man baby who’s only government experience is finding novel ways to avoid paying his taxes? Granted Hillary has her problems. But she isn’t a noob.

Dying Atheist vs. Pascal’s Wager – Reality or Jesus?

I’m Marc Perkel, founder of the Church of Reality – a religion based on believing what is actually objectively real. On August 1 2016 I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Adneocarsonoma of the lung. this is a fatal diagnosis and if you just Google that the answer is – I have 8 months to live average, and that was 3 months ago. My sense is that I have more time than that but it is unlikely I’ll be here 2 years from now. And my sense could be completely wrong and I could drop dead from side effects of the treatment tomorrow.

So – Christian friends and Atheist friends are asking the question, will I cave in at the last minute and turn Christian, accept Jesus, in a last ditch effort to get into Heaven. And the answer to that is – Hell NO!

I’m publishing this because Christians often claim falsely that dying Atheists turned to Jesus when they haven’t and I want to make the record clear while I’m still here that’s not going to happen, and I want both Theists and Atheists to understand why. If anyone says that I accepted Jesus – they are lying. I just want to make this clear up front because I know they are going to take what I wrote out of context and lie about it. And anyone who lies about it can’t possibly believe in the god they claim to believe in.

Donating money to Billionaires – are you kidding me?

Letter to the Editor

I suppose the reason Trump is a billionaire is that he has ordinary people sending him money for his campaign. Trump claims he’s worth 10 billion dollars so he has plenty of money to fund it himself without asking poor people to donate. Trump has loaned – not donated – several million dollars and if he really thought he was going to win he would put the money in himself. But by loaning his campaign money he can use your donations to repay the loan to himself. Trump is actually making a profit running for president and his candidacy is just one big scam. Think about it – a billionaire wants you to give him money – doesn’t that just seem a little odd? If Trump isn’t going to put his money in then why should we? Unbelievable!

Clinton or Trump on the economy?

Letter to the Editor

Who is more likely to fix the economy if elected president, Trump or Clinton? Last time the Clintons were in the White House we had a government surplus and we were paying down the national debt. Trump has never held public office and he’s been bankrupt 6 times.  6 times! Unbelievable! I tend to vote for people who don’t go bankrupt. Believe me, who wants to elect a weak nasty loser?

I won’t accept election results if Trump wins

Letter to the Editor

Trump says he won’t accept the election results unless he wins the election. Well, 2 can play that game. I won’t accept the election results if Trump wins. And if Trump wins, there’s plenty of room to support the claim that the election was rigged in Trump’s favor.

It is well known that Russian president Putin has been hacking into electronic voting systems and has broken the election security of 20 states. And the Russians are working with Wikileaks to hack into the Democratic party emails. Trump, according to reports owes some 250 million to Russian oligarchs and Chinese banks. These loans would show up if Trump released his tax returns. And Trumps wife was born in the Soviet Union which makes some people wonder if she’s a Russian KGB agent.

It is also had to conceive the Trump can win the election when he talks about hitting on married women and grabbing then by the pu$$y. Are we to believe that women and evangelical voters are going to support him? I don’t think so. Trump has never even so much as been elected as dog catcher and his first job in politics is going to be leader of the free world? Unbelievable! And what does not accepting election results mean? Is he going to advocate violent revolution?

There’s no way possible where someone like Trump can be legitimately elected. So if Trump is only going to accept the election results if he wins, I’m only going to accept the election results if he loses.

Trump claims rigged election?

Letter to the Editor

I find it amazing the Trump thinks the election is rigged against him. It’s laughable to hear any Republican claiming the election is rigged. I’m old enough to remember 2000 when the Supreme Court threw out the vote of the people and elected Bush 5 to 4. Trump is already making excuses for what might be a landslide election.

Perhaps the are other reasons Trump is loosing in the polls. Maybe people don’t trust that someone with no elected experience at all should start out being president? Maybe people don’t want someone who obsesses over petty fights? While Trump accuses Obama of being born in Kenya, is latest wife was born and raised in the Soviet Union. She’ll be the first Communist in the White House.

Perhaps some people might not want a president who calls his own daughter “a piece of ass”? Maybe voters don’t want a president who disrespects woman and talks about grabbing women’s genitals as locker room talk. They might not want a president who doesn’t pay income taxes every year. While others in his generation were fighting in Vietnam, Trump called avoiding sexual diseases as his “personal Vietnam”. Trumps talks casually about using nuclear weapons. Trump advocates for torture which puts our soldier’s in danger of being tortured. He thinks he’s going to build a wall and make Mexico pay for it. Maybe the voters don’t want to elect someone who has gone bankrupt several times?

I think it’s time for The Donald to take responsibility for us actions and stop being a crybaby before the election. If there’s anyone rigging the election it’s the Russians rigging it in Trumps favor because Putin would rather have an American leader who is weak and stupid.

Trump says, we should take a drug test

Letter to the Editor

Donald Trump says, “We should take a drug test prior to the debate” saying that he thinks Hillary was on drugs. That’s kind of an interesting idea because a drug test would be something the voters would be interested in. There is a lot of speculation that Trump’s sniffles during the last 2 debates were from cocaine use and this would be a great opportunity for Trump to end that speculation. So I think Hillary and Donald should say both say yes to getting drug tested. I would invite Hillary to take the Donald up on his offer.

Cruz sticking with Trump – why?

Letter to the Editor

I’m somewhat surprised that Ted Cruz is sticking with Trump after all the horrible stuff that Trump did to Ted Cruz personally. Trump accused Ted Cruz father of being a conspirator in the assassination of President Kennedy and attacked his wife as being too ugly to be first lady.  Ted Cruz is supposedly a Christian and yet he doesn’t have a problem with Trump going after married women while his pregnant wife sits at home, or talking about grabbing women by the crotch because he’s a “star” and he can get away with it. If this is what they call “Christian Values” all I can say is “Thank God I’m an Atheist!”

Trump isn’t insane. We are!

Letter to the Editor

People criticize Donald Trump for calling women “Ms. Piggy” and that they might be bleeding out of their whatever. They think Trumps a clown for believing Obama faked his own birth certificate or that Ted Cruz’s farther was a conspirator in the Kennedy Assassination. We think he’s nuts that he thinks he’s going to build a giant wall and Mexico is going to pay for it. And you asks yourself how crazy is it going to get?

But you know what’s even crazier than all that? It’s us! We are crazier than Trump because we are actually contemplating electing him president. He may be totally nuts, but what does that say about the rest of us? What does it say about who we are as Americans?

Trump has bigger hands than Hillary

Letter to the Editor

Although the liberal media is declaring Hillary the debate winner, I’m not sure I can agree with that. When the two of them shook hands it was clear that Trump’s hands were way bigger than Clinton’s hands. And we all know that means “you know what” is bigger too! And we also know that size matters when it comes to choosing a president, as Trump pointed out this spring debating Marco Rubio. So I say “Vote Trump! His equipment is bigger!”

Targeting mTOR in RET mutant medullary and differentiated thyroid cancer cells

Inhibitors of RET, a tyrosine kinase receptor encoded by a gene that is frequently mutated in medullary thyroid cancer, have emerged as promising novel therapies for the disease. Rapalogs and other mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitors are effective agents in patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, which share lineage properties with medullary thyroid carcinomas. The objective of this study was to investigate the contribution of mTOR activity to RET-induced signaling and cell growth and to establish whether growth suppression is enhanced by co-targeting RET and mTOR kinase activities.

Snowden should be pardoned

Letter to the Editor

Whistle blower Edward Snowden who revealed information about the illegal Bush/Obama NSA spying program is a national hero and should be pardoned. Yes – what he did was illegal. But if he didn’t act that too would have been illegal. The NSA had been lying to Congress about what it was doing and that it was illegally spying on every single person in America. We only know that because of Snowden.

Since Snowden’s revelation Congress changed several laws in order to help put a stop to the conduct that Snowden revealed. This to me indicates that Snowden did America a national service and that his actions to stop illegal government spying was justified. I therefore join in the call to pardon Edward Snowden.

Putin like Trump because he’s weak and stupid

Letter to the Editor

I find it somewhat amusing that presidential candidate Donald Trump thinks that Russian president Putin likes him is a good thing. Putin is a power hungry dictator who wants to restore the former Soviet Union to power, and the best think that could happen for Putin is to have an incompetent American president that is weak and stupid. Do we really want to elect a president that is endorsed by America’s adversaries? I don’t think so!

I have bad news. I have stage 4 lung cancer

I have some very bad news.

For the last 25 years I have been one of the nations most prolific letter to the editor writers. Unfortunately that might come to and end soon as I have been diagnosed stage 4 lung cancer. As someone who understand probabilities far too well I understand this is a fatal diagnosis and it’s just a matter of when. My life is now a casino and it’s mostly all about luck at this point.

Since 1991 I have written some 2500 letters to the editor, all 100% original, and I have mass distributed them to about 2000 newspapers each time. Back in the early days it was by fax. If you remember the old Sprint “Free Fridays” where long distance was free on Friday, I would write a letter every Thursday and queue it up. At the stroke of midnight 3 fax servers would come on line and fax 2000 papers and often every member of Congress weekly. In the late 1990s I switched to email.

I am usually well published because I understand that short is better, talking about current events, and laying out my points as clearly as possible and a flair for humor. This allowed my original opinions, right or wrong, to reach untold millions of people over the years. And I want to express gratitude to all of you who have published my work over the last 1/4 century.

It’s actually rather ironic that I of all people should be dying of lung cancer as someone who is a lifelong anti-smoking activist. I feel the cancer gods owe me a favor.

I suppose I’m now the new Christopher Hitchens – the dying Atheist. But I’m really not the same. Where Atheism is ultimately about nothing, Realism is about everything. And for the past 18 years I’ve been developing my Church of Reality and leave behind a reality based philosophy of life that is based on science. Trying to get it so logically tight that when computers become smarter than humans and have an existential crisis wondering “What is the meaning of artificial life?”, that I have an answer that it can reason is valid.

In that context I face my “final adventure” with the comfort of knowing that I have lived an extraordinary life and that I have accomplished more that most people do in 100 lifetimes. I have always looked at life as a story. Your story is everything you do from birth to death, and then your story is how you affected the world. Leonard Nimoy is gone, but Spock is still with us. At an early age I chose to “own my story” as I call it in my religion, to “live the life worth living”.

No one has a perfect life and as I look back there’s lots of things I could have done better. But surprisingly I feel that I have lived a life well lived and that is very comforting to me right now. And because of that I have a huge number of friends who care a lot about me, so much so that is is very humbling. And I’m dealing with making a lot of people very sad right now and that’s difficult to do. I’m not used to being on the receiving end of generosity. Even a little guilty that I might not have been as generous with them as they are with me.

For someone with a death sentence I’m doing OK so far. I have a paid for home in California, and still make a good income from home doing my little tech empire, web hosting and spam filtering. I’m not feeling any symptoms yet so if not for the diagnosis I would not know I was sick. So I’m writing this early in the process while I’m still in an inspirational state of mind. A very close friend of mine who is a hospice nurse, told me that people die the way they lived. So I’m hoping that’s true. (Although I’m probably going to be cranky and difficult as I get sick.)

I’m not afraid to be dead. I’m more afraid of the process of getting there. I had thought there was a chance that with new technology that I might be young enough to cheat death. That with the genetic work being done by Dr. David Sinclair and the advancements in computers that I when I die I would be “uploaded to the cloud where I would live forever.” (What does that remind you of?) But, if humanity stay on the right path, I might be the last generation to die. But seems I’m going to miss out on that one.

I however have a larger view of existence. We live in a universe where stars evolve into astronomers, and since we are all created by the universe what we do is what part of the universe is doing. We are the physical mechanism where self awareness and contemplation lives. “I think therefore I am.” However some 3.5 billion years ago something in the bottom of the ocean started dividing and formed life and we are all that organism still dividing and evolving. And although we are all individuals, in a greater sense we are all a single biological organism as well. But views are true, the only different is perspective and scale.

Much of what we know we know collectively. We are tightly integrated into a society more closely integrated than a hive of bees. The very words we use to think our own thoughts with are words invented by other people. And humanity explores the universe collectively. But since we are the universe, when we look back through the Hubble Telescope, the universe is looking at baby pictures of itself. As Carl Sagan says, we are the mechanism through which the universe contemplates it’s own existence.

Although I feel the impending loss of my own existence, in the greater sense I am more like a single cell in a greater organism who is created, lives for a time, and passes on. And although my story will end, my story will become part of the story of humanity, which is part of the story of life, and part of the story of the universe. And because of technology much more of who I am will survive as I upload what’s left of me to my digital afterlife. My hardware will return to dust, but some of my software will live on. And I’m hoping that I will achieve a meaningful level of immortality in that the values and wisdom I leave behind represent the essence of who I am (was) as a person. And that part is the part that has real value.

Still, this is all very difficult, I’m still have some denial of what’s happening to me. And I’m hoping that I die well. And the process of disassembling my personal existence is scary. Although what I write sounds very brave to read, there is a lot of fear inspiring it.

And although it sounds like I’m giving up, I am going to put up a fight. I’m going to MD Anderson which is the best cancer hospital in the nation. My life is a casino right now, but they are the casino with the best odds. If I get 2 years that would be a win. But I understand the probability spectrum way too well to not plan for a fatal outcome. I suppose I need to get around to writing a will.

I can ramble on forever, and forever isn’t as long as it used to be.

Feel free to distribute this or to publish this as well if you want to. I also do great interviews. Might be useful to other people facing their own mortality.

Insurance Companies Aetna and Humana should not be allowed to merge

Letter to the Editor

In a move to intimidate the Justice Department insurance giant Aetna threatened to pull out of Obamacare if government regulators interfered with its merger with Humana. The health insurance merger should not be allowed to continue.

The reason that the government regulates the super corporation is to prevent one company from having so much leverage that they can bully America into doing what they want. Aetna, in making this threat is displaying the very behavior that the monopoly laws are designed to prevent. If Aetna is threatening America now, how much more will they threaten America when they merge and become even bigger?

As someone who has lung cancer I want to make sure that the insurance companies are not in a position to take my money for years and then throw me out on the street without care to increase their corporate profits. I think there was a missed opportunity in 2010 to eliminate the insurance companies altogether and pass single payer health care and eliminate these parasites from American society. But if the Justice Department can’t stand up to bullies when they are smaller, how are they going to stand up to them when they get bigger? We are already paying the price of letting the banks grow to “too big to fail”. Why would we let the insurance industry do the same thing?

John McCain does not deserve reelection

Letter to the Editor

Senator John McCain, a former prisoner of war in Vietnam, has endorsed Donald Trump in spite of the fact that Trump has advocated the use of torture on prisoners. Trump has also disparaged prisoners of war like McCain calling him and all POWs losers because they were captured. And Trump jokes about soldiers who get Purple Hearts and families who lost sons in battle.

I’m beginning to wonder about McCain’s POW story because what kind of person allows Trump to say those things and still endorse him. McCain in his endorsement of Trump throws himself and every other soldier who has sacrificed under the bus. It as if McCain no longer remembers the years he spent in captivity. And if McCain has forgotten he loyalties as a soldier I think it’s time we forget about McCain. Perhaps Trump is right about McCain being a loser.
