Check out my books available from Amazon.com — search ‘books’, for ‘William Dameron’. There are 5 related to history plus four fantasy. Caution, there are two William Damerons, I’m William R. Here’s my Amazon.com author page: Bill’s Amazon author page
== “The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.” — Cicero – 55 BC ==
In politics, you shouldn’t believe anything a politician tells you. You shouldn’t believe anything I tell you here. This is an opinion blog. If I assert something, check it out for yourself. Google and Bing and other search tools can reveal an amazing amount of information. I make use of whatever statistics I can find, but I could misread, misinterpret, or misunderstand them, and thus be wrong in my conclusions.
(I’m not a woman, but I reserve the right to change my opinion. I’m not a politician, but I may flip-flop on some issues. Don’t bet on it.)
Since the Climate Change controversy is as much political as scientific, I include it on this blog as a category.
I have another blog devoted to unanswered (perhaps unanswerable) questions in physics: https://asmphys.wordpress.com/ (See note below)
On comments: I won’t accept comments which when clicked on, send my reader to totally unrelated sites — wasting their time if they have no interest in the topic there. Several people have asked questions which need a personal answer, and I’ve replied to the email address associated with the comment, but they never go through. So, now I discourage questions.
Note: when I started this blog in February 2011, the physics blog was combined with this one. During March 26-27, I separated the physics blog from this one, the politics blog. However, I was unable to copy the previously existing comments to the physics blog, so some of the comments that remain still refer to physics.
