About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

You Won't Be Lost In A Crowd Any Longer

As a follow up to the last post re everyone's personal information being known to a pizza delivery order taker I thank a long time subscriber of RTE for sending this link that demonstrates the high definition technology that helps police find suspects in large crowds such as in the Boston Marathon bombing case. 
Just keep double clicking on the photo @ any one point & it won't take long before you can make a positive identification.  The scroll button in the center of your mouse will further help.
The photo provided is made up of 216 photos (12 across by 18 down) stitched together, taken over a 15-minute span, and is not supposed to represent a single moment in time but the point is if you were in the crowd everyone can know it.
Great technology but like everything on the internet it can be used for good or evil if people think about it enough.
