About

About Jonolan:

Who or what is jonolan? Jonolan is a strange and opinionated soul who’s arrogant enough to have chosen to present his thoughts, rantings, ravings and general musing and brain dumps on an eclectic grouping of topics on this blog for your perusal and hopefully edification.

Jonolan’s political leanings are far to the Right on some issues and equally far to the Left on others. In areas of foreign policy he favors isolationism in the vein of walk softly but carry a big stick. On social issues he favors a more liberal view that follows the guidelines of Do what thou wilt shall be the whole Law and An it harm none, do as thou wilt.

Essentially jonolan harbors and espouses – often pedantically – the idea that governments should concentrate their efforts on those things that will most benefit their populations but should not become involved in interpersonal, social or religious matters except to provide and manage a common framework of legal interdependancies – contracts and other binding agreements – and to ensure that nether The Peace nor individuals’ rights are violated due to skirmishes between antagonistic subgroups within that government’s population.

About Reflections From a Murky Pond

This blog is designed to be a venue where jonolan can present his ideas for people to read and comment on. Topics presented here will be eclectic to say the least and totally random to speak more truthfully. The bulk of the subject matter will probably be on: politics, ethics and morality, social and cultural issues, religion, and various environmental issues. There will also undoubtedly be forays into: technology, science, blogging, books, music, movies and television since these things do much to shape people’s views on most issues base and grand.

Comments on- and discussion of any and all articles on this blog are not only allowed but strongly encouraged. This is especially true for those readers who disagree with the ideas presented herein.

    opinionated. that’s a word for it.

  2. Dennis Says:

    Brain dumps? Be careful, you’ll end up empty quick if you dump too much!

  3. robert roels Says:

    Sorry Jonolan;

    I can’t accommodate your request on disagreeing comments, at least on this page, because I find myself agreeing with you.

    Your a fine writer.

    Robert

  4. jonolan Says:

    Thank you, Robert! Opposing viewpoints are encouraged, not mandated! I’m not one to be offended by people agreeing with me. ROFLMAO!

    Thanks again!

  5. Rhea Says:

    Hi Jonolan, you stopped by my site, so here I am. :-) You’re a talented writer, and I enjoy reading your thoughts. Like Robert, I agree with much of what you have to say, and I’m looking forward to reading more.

    Thanks,

    Rhea

  6. jonolan Says:

    Thank you, Rhea. I enjoyed your site as well :) I hpe we’ll both make a habit of reading each others’ works. You might also like to stop by Wthout Condition; Christy (Moriah) writes wonderfully and touches on a lot of personal and emotional topics that are really beyond my capabilities to write about effectively.

  7. Rhea Says:

    Thanks jonolan, that was so very considerate of you to recommend Moriah’s blog. I appreciate the suggestion. Take care….

    Rhea

  8. Christy Says:

    Hey Jonolan,

    I don’t know if this is recent or if I’ve just been Ms. Oblivious, but I just now noticed the (seemingly) new “recent comments” feature on the blog and love it; it makes keeping up with things much easier. =) (You *could* extend it to ten or more comments, too, instead of five. ;)

  9. Rhea Says:

    Hi. I meant to ask you…

    You left a quote on my page: “We man the borders and keep the peace so that better men than us can make the world finer and the normal people can go about their lives.” I thought that was fascinating. What is it from?

    Thanks,

    Rhea

  10. jonolan Says:

    It’s from S.M. Stirling’s The Peshawar Lancers. The quote was so powerful – to me at least – and said so well what I’ve felt, that I tend to use it a lot when trying to convey the sentiments of many professional soldiers and others who put themselves in harm’s way.

  11. Christy Says:

    Haha, Jonolan. Was “Without Compromise” (see above) a Freudian slip? ;)

    And I second Rhea’s comment – that quote is superb.

  12. jonolan Says:

    Ouch and OOPS! It must have been :) I’ll fix that.

  13. Christy Says:

    Hahaha.

    Maybe I’ll start yet another blog titled “Without Compromise.” It has a nice ring. ;p

    well mister jonolan I find myself in pefect agreement with you.

    I am not a politically savvy person. I don’t find any personal fulfillment talking about politics in general, but if I was ever asked I might only add that I favor not necessarily isolationism, but rather an implicit hand’s off, mind your own business and let everyone evolve as they will. Use all our empire’s resources to make us a shining jewel of enlightenment and modern achievement. Make people want to be like us, to emulate us. I favor making sure we have more sticks and better sticks than others.

    Crowley’s philosophy, espoused by Le Vey, and adopted by Pagans, is good enough for me.

  15. jonolan Says:

    Welcome, Jane!

    Don’t worry about being politically savvy; it’s not necessary here at Reflections From A Murky Pond. I post on a wide variety topics besides politics.

  16. chris Says:

    jonolan, I stop by your blog from time to time. I have seen your comments on posts of bloggers, that I question there integrity or ethics..however your comments on the blogsphere, and your blog are always refreshing and provocative and well thought out. I wish there more social/political bloggers and commentors like you. thanks for reminding me to think.

  17. jonolan Says:

    Thank you, Chris and welcome – a bit belatedly – to Reflections From A Murky Pond.

    I do like to get people to think. ;) There are just too many lemmings in society today.

  18. Rayon Soleil Says:

    Hi Jonolan,

    Your blog is not new to me…i used to visit it through the list of blogroll at iamtheson blog (that’s how i knew ur blog)…

    Worth to read’s blog ! Keep writing… :)

    Regards.

  19. jonolan Says:

    Well welcome back then, Rayon Soleil! I’m very glad you like Reflections From A Murky Pond. I’m fond of iamtheson as well.

  20. HannahJ Says:

    Finally got around to adding you to my blogroll. Finally got around to reading this post too. :D

  21. jonolan Says:

    Hehe! Thanks for continuing to stop by.

  22. rtan89 Says:

    I enjoy reading your posts. Keep up the good work. You actually use your brain and think for yourself, which I appreciate, and applaud.

    Haha.

    Thank you, Ricky.

  24. Chrisi Says:

    Hi Jonolan! You stopped by my blog so I thought I’d check yours out, too, and I have to say I LOVE it! Very intriguing thoughts. I plan to continue checking in, I like your writing style! :) Thanks! -Chrisi

  25. The Razzler Says:

    Hi Jonolan! You kindly left a comment on my blog so I thought I’d do the same for you. I recently stumbled upon your blog via “Without Condition” and I find your writings very refreshing and stimulating in this sometimes banal world.

  26. jonolan Says:

    Chrisi & The Razzler,

    Thank you both! I’m glad you found Reflections From A Murky Pond and that you’ve enjoyed it.

  27. Malpoet Says:

    Hi Jonolan

    Thanks for visiting my site and commenting. You have an interesting range of views. I agree with some and disagree with others. I look forward to exchanging opinions.

    Who knows, let’s see if we change each others minds on some matters.

  28. jonolan Says:

    Welcome, Malpoet!

    Yes, my views are all over the spectrum on an issue by issue basis. This sadly guarantees that I’ll most likely never be content. Of course it also guarantees that I’ll never be bored or complacent either.

  29. Seriously McMillan Says:

    I see that you frequent my site. Thanks for coming. I will be visiting you regularly as well.

    Friendly hugs to you on the side boob comment. My guy feels the same way you do.

    I’m linking to your site, too. Love the blow up the candidates videos.

  32. Bilia Says:

    Jonolan,

    Thanks for sharing your site. Just like bookgirl, I like your blog too, your opinions, and I can say you are a great writer.

    You have an interesting range of views.I look forward to exchanging opinions.

    Very intellectual. You will see me more often.

  33. jonolan Says:

    Welcome, Bilia, and thank you. I look forward to your return and your comments.

  34. Don Warner Says:

    Neither the right nor the left has a monopoly on the truth or all the answers. We need them both if for no other reason than to keep each other honest.

  35. Tom Bates Says:

    Nice Blog Site. I have added you to my Blog Roll. I do hope you dont mind.

  36. Christy Says:

    Here’s to hoping you can start posting more frequently. ;)

  37. jonolan Says:

    Thanks, Christy. I think that things will calm down shortly and I’ll be able to post more often.

  38. wgreen Says:

    Your description of your political leanings sounds like libertarianism to me.

  39. jonolan Says:

    wgreen,

    I’m close to being libertarian – as opposed to Libertarian – but not quite. I believe in a bit more government than they do.

  40. pajama momma Says:

    I saw your comment on cranky’s balance sheet and became intrigued. And now I see you have ed gruberman on your blogroll and that makes me all tingly inside.

    I’m a small “L” libertarian too

  41. jonolan Says:

    Well, thanks for stopping by, pajama momma!

    I’m over at Ed’s fairly often – or used to be; he hasn’t been posting as much as he used to do.

    Come again!

  42. Daniel Yahraes Says:

    It’s pretty sloppy to entitle your entry “Kill Joe The Plumber”. Cause now it’s official, you can google “Kill Joe The Plumber” and your article is listed… but if someone doesn’t pull up your article, they may actually think you’re supporting the idea of doing something dangerous to Joe. Way to go… you’re now part of the propaganda you seem to despise.

  43. IBé Says:

    Well after our little exchange on MinneAfrica, I had to stop by to see what you were all about, how you can give up all hope on Africa. I don’t see an answer, but it’s still nice to make your acquentance. One day when Africa pulls through, I hope to find you out in the after life (it’s not going to happen in our life time I don’t think) and say, “see, I told you we will find our way…together!”

  44. jonolan Says:

    Thanks for stopping by, IBé.

    I haven’t given up all hope on Africa. I just don’t have very much of it and none for the sort-term.

    Look me up on the far side of the Western Gate and prove to my shade that I was wrong in this life. That’s an error I’d be very willing and eager to admit to.

  45. Jennifer Says:

    So glad you left a comment on the Not Drowning Mother blog (the black jellybean post). Love your site, and I will be back.

  46. jonolan Says:

    Thank you for visiting and for your kind words, Jennifer. I like both you blogs as well. Of course I live in a pro-fiber arts household. ;)

  47. Ed Gilbreath Says:

    Dear Jonolan,

    Greetings. Just dropping by to say hi. I appreciate your honesty and passion, and the way you keep things interesting over at my own blog. Peace to you, friend. -edg.

  48. jonolan Says:

    Thank you, Ed.

    I think your blog, given how controversial much of its content is, would be a quite interesting place irrespective of my presence and input. I am glad you value my contributions though.

  49. sandrar Says:

    Hi! I was surfing and found your blog post… nice! I love your blog. :) Cheers! Sandra. R.

  50. J.D.F Says:

    I am glad you stopped by my site and commented. I appreciate your candor and am enjoying perusing the pages of your blog. Your ‘in the vein of’ quotes reminded me of Don’t let the Bastards get you down… which I try to always keep close to my heart.

  51. jonolan Says:

    I’m glad you liked Reflections From A Murky Pond, J.D.F. I warn you though, it and I can both be rather harsh at times, and the topics here are often less than easy for many people to deal with.

    I’ve also enjoyed our discussion over on your blog and look forward to future ones.

  52. J.D.F Says:

    Dialogue should never be easy. It should never be one sided. It should be vibrantly hued with the thoughts and opinions of varying points of view. Otherwise, it ceases to be a dialogue and becomes a monologue. What fun is there in that! :)

  53. regularbrotha Says:

    Dude,

    You’ve got a lot of people who’ve commented on your site fooled. Based off the post(s) you’ve placed on my site, your a straight racist dude. It’s cool though. I can EASILY handle you. I’m just surprised to see you write in your about section that there are area’s in which you view yourself as far left. (hilarious)

    You said, in response to one of my posts, that it was 10 million blacks that saddled this country with Obama but that “Americans” (white people) were going to “take back the country”. Then you had the gall to add that you’ll then decide if the likes of me (blacks) will have a place in it.

    You’ve been drinking too much of the Rush Limbaugh kool-aide from that murky pond. Oh wait… your probably not a fan of Rush’s either.

  54. jonolan Says:

    Don’t worry, I accept almost all comments. I only delete comments based up their content when they’re “over the top” personal attacks against other commenters as opposed to attacks against myself.

    You’re – rather classically and therefor boringly – misrepresenting my comment on your blog though. In response to your Afrocentric threats I said:

    Yep, you Blacks saddled this nation with Obama. 10 million of you went out voted for him, which “put him over the top” – assuming you discount the 53 million non-Blacks who voted for him.

    One thing, your kind certainly got him the Dems nomination. There’s no denying that in all its racist “glory.”

    But, since the Dems aren’t going to limit themselves to only Black candidates, they could really count on the Black vote anyway so your threat is seriously weakened. ;)

    But it all moot. Americans will take our country back in 2010 and 2012 – and then we’ll decide if you all have any place left in it.

    You and anyone who cares to can read whatever they want into that. I’m fairly sure, when taken in the context of your post, that their “mileage may vary.”

  55. regularbrotha Says:

    So tell me. What DID you mean by “Americans will take their country back?

    Also explain, “then you’ll decide if you all will have a place in it”?

    Sounds like a Rushcentric threat to me (since you want to throw around euphemisms).

    Care to explain yourself? Or are you just going to rest on the “care to read anything you want into it” stance?

  56. jonolan Says:

    Simply put, regularbrotha, Americans are those people in this country and OF this country and its culture who are not looking to change the fundamental values of it or turn it and our rights over to a over-bloated federal government that hell bent on subsidizing everyone to the point of shared poverty.

    In your post you strongly came across as just another whining special interest type of the “social justice” stripe that wanted hand-outs and was willing to threaten to get them.

    What the Democrats don’t understand is that this is their last chance and the last chance for this country. If they don’t stop blocking Obama’s agenda then they are sure to loose the black vote come next election. Say what you want of the support Obama got from whites and hispanics, it was the black vote and the numbers in which they turned out that carried Obama over. the Democrat Party will not get that again if they continue to betray Obama and work behind the scenes with Republicans to make it seem as though Obama can’t get the job done.

    So, since you claim credit for it, why should we all blame and you and yours for Obama and his agenda?

  57. regularbrotha Says:

    What your type don’t understand is that YOU are the whiniest special interest group in this country! Your blog is the epitome of this whine.

    If you don’t get your way, you want to quit the game and take your ball home like the little wusses you are. You don’t understand the word compromise. Yet you have the nerve to place yourselves ideologically above other points of views (which is what you are trying to do here). It doesn’t work with me.

    Another thing I’m sure of is that in real life, I’m more conservative than you are. I don’t care about social issues. You get your but out there and make a living for yourself or you die. That’s my motto to myself and my kids. What I notice is that people of your ideological persuasion can only survive off the exploitation of others. You use intellectual bullying to drive your agenda of exploitation. By the way, it was during the first 6 years of Dupya’s Presidency that the Mexican flood gates were open so that you had even more people to exploit for the sake of the corporate capitalist fraternity and its brainwashed followers such as yourself. Hows that for changing the fundemental values of MY country!

    But like all bullies when stood up to, your shown to be the punks you are.

    Yea, blame me for Obama’s agenda… after his Presidency is over. Oh but wait… I’ve noticed on some of your other posts (yea, I checked you out) that when someone brings up the failings of Dupya, you coyly respond, “I have no intention of talking about someone who is no longer in office. Obama’s in office so we need to focus on what he’s doing now”.

    What a bunch of BS.

  58. jonolan Says:

    You may, in some social respects, be more conservative than I am. As I have said before, on some issues I’m fairly far to the Left. most of those issues are of the social variety.

    How though do you reconcile your claim of, “You get your but out there and make a living for yourself or you die,” with Obama’s Statist, subsidy happy agenda that has so little in common in what you say you believe in?

    Could it be that the reconciliation between your supposed values and Obama’s agenda is “racial reconciliation?” ;)

    As you’ve said, “What a bunch of BS.”

  59. regularbrotha Says:

    Your pretty stuck on the racial thing I see. Your supposed values (what ever they are) show that you are predisposed to identifying with racial politics. It is you who brought up race in response to one of my posts. Don’t try to twist it.

    As far as reconciling making a living for ones self or die as opposed to an Obama Stalinist agenda…If I may borrow from surely one of your hero’s, “There you go again”.

    I guess you and your brethren are all knowing. You can foresee three years from now that the US will become Cuba or something. NO, YOU CAN’T.

    You are but a mere man that uses alarmist jargon to attack this man (Obama) because he is black. There, I said it. What social program are you referring to that makes Obama the second coming of Stalin? Healthcare reform? How do you know that healthcare reform will cause a slippery slope towards Stalinism?

    YOUR guy did this:

    http://www.cbpp.org/cms/index.cfm?fa=view&id=3036

    Not Obama. As much as you don’t want to talk about it. And John McCain voted for all of the Stalinist George W. Bush’s programs that put us on the path we are on. And you would have preferred a McCain Presidency?

    I’m sure I know one area that I’m more socially conservative in then you… I say no to drugs (as Nancy told me too when she was your hero’s first lady).

  60. jonolan Says:

    Since this entire rant of your and my responses to it are predicated on your post, with all of it racial points in it, don’t try to say that I’m the one fixated on race when your whole post was centered on racial politics.

    Jump the shark much? I find Obama’s agenda, especially ObamaCare to be somewhat Socialist in nature, but I’m far more concerned that it is Statist in nature and likely to further harm our economy at a time when we can’t afford to compensate for it.

    As for attacking Obama because he’s Black – nice try, if a tired one. Unlike Sharpton, Jackson, and some others Obama’s race hasn’t been particularly important to policies. I’ve no reason to attack him on those issues.

    I truly don’t give a rat’s ass about people’s race. Culture and Ideology are a completely separate thing however. Yeah, if Obama started jabbering about Black America and White America – or a lot of the other bullshit coming out of some segments of the Black population, I’d go after him on those terms. He hasn’t though so I have no axe to grind on those scores.

    As for drug use – You got me there. I did have to kick a nasty painkiller addiction I picked up after being wounded (Demerol is NOT your friend) a bunch of years ago. Before that I never got around to using drugs, and after that I wasn’t really interested in them.

  61. Kevin Waterman Says:

    Meant to come over and say thanks for commenting on my blog sooner. Obviously we don’t agree on the E-Verify issue, but a lot of what you have here’s interesting and I certainly appreciate being honestly challenged.

  62. Kevin Waterman Says:

    Also, I figured out why my false positive count was so high. I was applying the percentage to the wrong group (should have been the number of positives rather than the total population). Thanks for pushing me to figure that out, better to have right information even if it doesn’t support my point as well.

  63. jonolan Says:

    You’re welcome, Kevin. It was certainly no problem questioning the numbers. I’ve a tendency to do that anyway.

  64. mcnorman Says:

    Wow, this is some blog jonolon. Really interesting. I may not agree with you on everything, that would be so boring.

  65. jonolan Says:

    mcnorman,

    I don’t think there’s a soul on the internet that agrees with me on everything. :D My views and opinions are both too varied and too extreme for that.

  66. mcnorman Says:

    I’m glad. :)

  67. Carlos Ferreira Says:

    Well, figure that! Interesting blog, even if we apparently disagree in some topics. You’re challenging, I appreciate that. Count me in as a fan.

  68. jonolan Says:

    Welcome aboard, Mr. Ferreira! I’m glad you stopped by and found it interesting.

  69. a7md Says:

    I like ur blog ;)

  70. Tanner Campbell Says:

    After reading a handful of your articles from different sections, I have three questions that I would like answered, at your leisure of course.

    1. What is your education?
    2. How old are you?
    3. What countries have you traveled to in your lifetime.

    Thanks.

  71. jonolan Says:

    Why? Do I seem to fail to match your profile?

  72. Tanner Campbell Says:

    No. You match it perfectly. I just wanted to know more about you — for, let’s say, case study purposes. I’m what you might call a philosopher, and what I’d call a contemplator — educationally I’m a PhD in Physics but I’m writing a book on social systemics … your blog grabbed my interest, that’s all. You don’t have to answer the questions.

  73. jonolan Says:

    No problem really; it was just an odd enough set of questions, after perusing your blog, that I wondered.

    1. Age: Late 40s

    2. Education: Hard to accurately describe. The only formal degree I hold is a Doctorate of Divinity, but I’ve study (both in universities and independently) a plethora of subjects ranging from various disciplines in Physics, Biology, Botany, Medicine, Paleontology, and Geology, through History and Anthropology, and into various languages and cultural studies.

    3. Countries I’ve Traveled to: Belize, Brazil, Columbia, Argentina, Venezuela, Honduras, Costa Rica, Mexico, Egypt, Bahrain, Dubai, Israel, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Tunisia, Yemen, Morocco, Ivory Coast, South Africa, Somalia, Sudan, Chad, Kenya, Turkey, Japan, China (Hong Kong), Taiwan, Australia, England, and France.

  74. Tanner Campbell Says:

    The degree in Theology and lack of progressive/scientific/philosophical education is about what I expected, no offense meant! The travel is a surprise, why the great number of places? Were you a member of our military?

  75. jonolan Says:

    You make the Leftist’s common mistake; you equate a degree with education.

    I’ve audited literally 100s of hours of courses on a variety of subjects, including both hard sciences and philosophy at a variety of colleges over the years, plus studied independently when I had access to course’s syllabus and materials but not the time for formal classes.

    As for the travel – I was in the military but I also traveled later as part of my civilian work, mostly setting up cartographic projects for governments across the world.

    BTW – just to further confuse you, while I was raised Roman Catholic and studied under Jesuits, Dominicans, and Franciscans, I’m Pagan. My degree in Theology being now more useful in the study of Theosophy than it is in its original intent – though the Aramaic studies have made it more fun when dealing with some Abrahamics.

    I’m also currently employed as the ISO for one of the BUs of a Global 1000 company.

  76. Tanner Campbell Says:

    I’m not a leftist — I’m also not confused. I replied to your comment on my blog — and thank you for the thoughts.

  77. jonolan Says:

    Liberal, Leftist, there’s no functional difference in meaning within America, Tanner. The labels are interchangeable in normal parlance. It might have been different if most of the more classic Leftist hadn’t been subsumed by the Liberal label in the wake of McCarthy.

  78. Freedom, by the way Says:

    I just found your blog through a scathing,yet likeable (to me, anyway) comment you made on another’s blog. I find the juxtaspostion of your current post (Holder/racial quotas in Dayton) with your announcment that “pole dancer” was the #1 search term that led people to your blog in 2010 fascinating. Oh, yes, I will be back (If for no other reason than to read that post on the Pole Dancer!) Just kidding. Nice blog!

  79. jonolan Says:

    Well! Welcome aboard and I hope you find the blog interesting.

    jonolan – just put you on the blogroll; an oversight I wasn’t aware of till today.. I really ought to pay more attention! Anyway, sorry for the oversight – all fixed now.

  82. jonolan Says:

    Thanks and no apologies needed, Moe.

    I didn’t realize it was an oversight. I figured that Reflections From A Murky Pond wasn’t a good fit for your blogroll. Let’s face it, the site doesn’t match the rest of the ones in your blogroll and most of your readers wouldn’t care for it anyway. :-D

    Heads’ up jonolan – damn Akismet is blocking you again,, but ONLY occassionally. Like today, I just found one of your comments in the spam folder while everything else got through. Also a few days ago, three or four got through,, one got snared. What the Elvis is that about?
