Captain Kelly USN, Astronaut

1 12 2011

Dear Captain Kelly,

Please excuse me, Sir. I have caught a number of news reports and showing you both, and especially dear Congresswoman Gabby (if I may?). Progress is remarkable and indeed miraculous.

Mrs. Kelly is emerging as an historic figure. You great support, Sir has provided the turn upwards. The utter focus and discipline of an astronaut commander is playing its part. Congratulations by the way, upon the DFC, if that is what was presented you at The White House! Lindbergh had that also!!

Gabby probably has 100% votes for continuing in Congress. If she, (with you) could use her star-power to emulate President Reagan’s press secretary, James Brady, who engineered the Brady Law. He was and is a staunch Republican, also!

Please, seriously consider the information on page two.

Ultimately, this simple recasting of the one of the most costly issues facing the Great Democracy will bring great Gabby to closure.

America’s love of her could bring peace to countless Americans in the future.

Please take this seriously, Captain Kelly. I have been judged at the highest US peer review level, and my deep regard of America is well known.

Profound respects to You both.


Letter to America – Congresswoman Giffords

1 12 2011

The Honourable Representative Gabrielle Giffords, BA, Masters Cornell U.

Dear Congresswoman Giffords!

I caught a nice picture of you with US Navy captain and astronaut Mark Kelly, DFC. You both look so great!

I feel qualified to contact you, a busy congresswoman, because I was honoured by the ‘Extraordinary Capacity’ visa, limited to 300 or so folk worldwide, and whose research was judged able to help lift the nation, in some fundamental way.

You are clearly looking forward to a long and illustrious career on Capitol Hill. As a person with a great many American friends, and a true friend of the USA, may I take this moment to just present some thinking to you, for a safer America.

It is not ideal, but it does appear that for the great mass of Americans, they do indeed wish to confidently keep firearms. However, they are cannot be confident when the US Supreme Court splits 5-4 on this.

Might I then suggest a fresh route: another constitutional amendment. One which finally – and clearly – would guarantee the right of Americans to bear arms.
That should satisfy completely one side of the debate.

I have a unique perspective here, because when young I walked across the USA, alone and without money, and from Tierra del Fuego. {Gabby, I was lucky enough to get the record!} Therefore, I know the hopes and fears of the many thousands of fine folk in the Great Democracy.

For them, gun ownership was never a problem, as stated over many a breakfast table. What decidedly was, however, was the fear of people travelling on the road who might (or not) have a weapon, legal (or not).

This strongly suggests that licensing, issued and checked appropriately by a relevant agency, as a necessary requirement, and a campaign running parallel to the constitutional amendment process.
Any person moving out and beyond their property, with a weapon, can be stopped by an officer of the law, at any time. There should be no legal hindrance of the police officers right to search anyone they suspect. They could demand to see such a travelling license for any weapon.
That should satisfy the other side of the debate, should it not?

Worth a thought then most honoured American leader!

Warm wishes,

PS USA — best miracle medicine in the whole, wide world.
Bravo America!!

Life …

There is surely more human tragedy down any street than we can ever cope with; so we don’t take it in.
History and life are largely ‘airbrushed’ versions of reality. Is this not some sort of protection, a step back from horror? For example, such as the tomb of the unknown soldier, or how about the stomach churning way we get meat?
A comfortable airbrushing wash across perfectly white paper is but a comfortable delusion.

I see Life as a passing sparkle. Just look at those small children!! Love is a high manifestation, a sparkling state of colours!!

Is Corruption Everywhere?

1 12 2011

Why is corruption so constant, so widespread? Is it perhaps the Darwinian make-up of Humanity in general? Sort of getting an edge. Whatever we think we can get away, might be one of the bigger limiting factors.
