I'm a progressive Democrat

We should all be supporting Franklin D. Roosevelt's 1944  'Economic Bill of Rights'

Bernie Sanders' platform supports a modern version of that.


Some basic purposes of our government as stated in the Constitution are to promote the general welfare.
The Declaration of Independence follows the same logic, saying we are endowed with certain unalienable Rights.
That among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.   I wholeheartedly agree.


I support 'Medicare For All' and I've written why.
And more I've written about that.

Dole's War Record
Interview with Robert B. Ellis


Below is a segment from the  show above. It was filmed partly at I.V. Lab where we invented a Dewar that keeps vaccines cold for 50 days without electricity. That's weeks longer than current devices. At 2:22 Bill Gates removes the vaccines from the commercial version. In the background is the prototype my co-workers and I helped to design and build.  I appear briefly at 3:54.


Nathan Myhrvold on The Colbert Report with his Modernist Cuisine books
 At IV Labs we had an experimental kitchen for Nathan.
Nathan hired a full staff of cooks, photographers, etc.
After years they published Modernist Cuisine.
Along with many others, I was credited as an author.
Mostly, I mostly cut stuff in half for Nathan and his staff.
That includes the Dutch oven shown in this episode.
As usual with Colbert, it's pretty entertaining to watch.
