A Recommndation to the Editor

Dear Ken,

For some time I have been receiving e-mail from a fellow who calls himself "Dr. Duck". The good doctor appears to be a conservative of the sort libertarians would be happy to converse with over a beer or nine, and I almost always enjoy what he sends out into the world.

Dr. Duck is also an enterprising individual who has created a concept and a website called "Duck's Deluxe" that is thoroughly worth spending time with, especially if you like guitar music or are a guitarist, yourself. He advertises a lot of nifty products there I'm anxious to try out, as I live almost entirely surrounded by guitars I haven't bothered to count in decades.

But most of all, I want to recommend the doctor's radio show, "Dr. Duck's Guitar Prescription", wherein, every Saturday night, he spins the greatest guitar music ever recorded and does many other interesting things. You can listen at 8:00 PM Pacific time (he's in Las Vegas) on KUNV, 91.5 FM on your radio dial if you're in town, or streamed worldwide from on your computer if you're not.

Another FM station, 96.3, plays and streams the program an hour later at

Dr. Duck also maintains an extensive collection of recordings of his program you can listen to any time you want. And, of course, there are always the Ducky Girls.

I like Dr. Duck and what he does, and I think you will, too.

Dear Neil and Ken,

Consider one of the health "alternatives" that far too many people just don't even think about these days... taking charge of one's own health and wellness. Most modern illnesses are the result of stress, poor diet, lifestyle, substance abuse, and the ingestion of massive amounts of chemical "medicine" that almost invariably does more harm than good.

I almost died (long story) before I realized that all that was completely within my own control. I stopped taking the pills, stopped going to the doctors (going on 8 years now), pursue a much healthier (no, not perfect) lifestyle and diet... and I am much happier and in better health than I've been since I was a teen. Now, at 66, I'll go to a doctor if I break something, or spring a major leak, but not for much else. And there are/will always be doctors who are willing to work outside the system.

As a former western medicine health care provider... an RN for 30 years, I have an excellent idea what "medicine" was in the past, and a crystal clear picture of where it's going. The trick is simply not to go along. The doctors and nurses (and many others) who understand that are leaving the sinking ship as fast as they can. They know they can't save the dying monster, no matter what they do.

Soon, the only ones left will be the helplessly debt ridden cowards who can't see a way out, and the incompetent or downright evil ones who glory in their CONTROL.

Control your own health. It works. It's possible. And it may soon be the only rational option, no matter what your health problems might be.

Sad, but there it is...

Is it Me?

Is it me or are the people who are excoriating Baby Bush for the Iraq War:

A: The same people that egged him on to start it and cheerleaded the early part of its prosecution until they were exposed to the harsh lesson that sometimes it's easier to win a war than make the post war peace work? Especially with the likes of Rumfield and Cheney trying to use Iraq as an abattoir to slaughter terrorists regardless of how many Iraqi civilians got killed in the crossfire and how unstable peace in Iraq would thus become.

B: The same people that are beating the war drums for a US intervention in Syria with an option to get a war going with Iran?

Finally I have to ask, am I being paranoid to see this pattern and am I the only one?

Occassionally he sneaks into A.X. Perez's house and uses his computer to communicate with TLE.

Sign the Declaration of Sinlessness!

World Union of Deists
Box 4052
Clearwater, FL 33758

Bringing people to Deism since 1993

Take Part in the Deistic Revolution in Religion by Signing the Declaration of Sinlessness!

Just as America's revolutionaries signed the Declaration of Independence to show their rejection of the idea of the Divine right of kings to rule over people and to show their support for liberty and freedom of the people, so you can now show your rejection of the unnatural guilt the "revealed" religions use to control people with while at the same time showing your support for God-given reason and Deism and the freedom and progress they bring people and society by signing the Declaration of Sinlessness from the World Union of Deists! To read and sign the Declaration of Sinlessness please click the "like" button on our Declaration of Sinlessness Facebook page here:

We need to follow through on what America's revolutionaries made possible with their sacrifices, blood and very lives: a revolution in religion based on our innate gift from God of reason and Deism. Thomas Paine made this clear when in The Age of Reason, The Complete Edition he wrote, "Soon after I had published the pamphlet Common Sense, in America, I saw the exceeding probability that a revolution in the system of government would be followed by a revolution in the system of religion. The adulterous connection of church and state, wherever it had taken place, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, had so effectually prohibited by pains and penalties, every discussion upon established creeds, and upon first principles of religion, that until the system of government should be changed, those subjects could not be brought fairly and openly before the world; but that whenever this should be done, a revolution in the system of religion would follow. Human inventions and priestcraft would be detected; and man would return to the pure, unmixed and unadulterated belief of one God, and no more."

Not only can you take part in the Deistic revolution in religion by signing/liking the Declaration of Sinlessness, but you can order your own personalized Declaration and Certification of Sinlessness while simultaneously helping the World Union of Deists to have the means of getting the word out about Deism!
