Healthcare As A Tax Deduction Part II

Image
23 Dec. 2017 By Alex Nuttall - Bio Back on January 26, 2011 we published an editorial about healthcare as a tax deduction. This was before the second term of President Barack Obama. The Affordable Healthcare Act was enacted in 2010. This is a follow up to that editorial:   https://ogfomk.blogspot.com/2011/01/healthcare-as-tax-deduction.html Recently our president, Donald Trump and the Republican Congress and Senate have celebrated passing a bill on tax reform. This group also attempted to reverse and repeal the Affordable Care Act (aka Obama Care). While the repeal of the mandate to pay for healthcare  is welcome the rest of the tax bill is not what would help the people who pay taxes and need healthcare in the United States of America. Why not have healthcare as a tax deduction?  Instead of a bunch of  changes to the existing tax system. Instead of trying to make affordable healthcare act go away without any thing useful in place. Why not have the health of

I'll Be Voting and You Can Too!

6. Nov. 2017 By Alex Nuttall - Bio I love when public servants use full sentences. This guy here made me proud to be American. All those years of public school were not squandered because I realized that speaking well and writing could elevate the consciousness of all of us. This guy here made me proud to be American - Barack Obama Little did I know that bathroom graffiti, incomplete sentences and marginal behavior would normalize itself. I look back on my petulant early works and even they pointed in a better direction. I do hope that as Americans we can return to good manners, intelligent language and progressive thought. Whether we believe it or not the planet is changing. So is our consciousness. I'll be voting on Tuesday. There's no excuse for me not to. The polling center is literally in my back yard. It's an African Methodist Episcopal Church. Emanuel A.M.E. Church, Portsmouth VA If you are like me and grew up in the Hampton

By Alex Nuttall - Bio She lays beside you Out if all the places in the house She chooses to be beside you You can't deny The pride you feel and You want to brag to the whole world But that's not what this Is about It's not about anything, Really, Not about Anything Her legs are juxtapose In front of her nose And she shapes A raindrop If you can imagine Her furry feline body As so It's not so bad When everything seems To be in Disorder You can be confident That your struggle Is worth it When you know You take care Of the cat Just a cat Well, actually two cats And a wife And some plants You may not be doing The best job But to her You're doing just fine Maybe to them all You're doing just fine The suggestion box The litter box Maybe they're the same But at least the shit Gets out there And not on the street And not on the floor And not on the bed, Often, Not on the bed Well maybe once Or Tw

Pronobozo - Coming Back

Image
By Alex Nuttall - Bio We can't say enough about this artist. We can say that a video we are coming up with will have his music. Pronobozo can be found at http://www.pronobozo.com/ and even on the soundtrack of the game LinCity-NG https://sourceforge.net/projects/lincity-ng.berlios/ So what does that mean? Well it is another example of Constructive Technology Aggregate. The real movement is all around us. We just don't see it. We see instead the crude scribbles of loveless children. Instead there are those who move forward and create the new dimension right now.

Going Somewhere is Human

Image
13. Aug 2017 By Alex Nuttall - Bio Going somewhere is human Even if you are going nowhere Going somewhere is human, Even if the scope of the Universe Is going nowhere in particular Going somewhere is human, Going somewhere is ideal Even when going somewhere Is meaningless in the grand scheme Going somewhere is about Having a goal, any goal And going there is good like health-food, Going somewhere is like Having some ice-cream It begins to feel good during The process of eating it And eating it becomes A human and unique experience, Going somewhere is human As much as going somewhere Is going through life anyway But having a course and a plan Is not so bad, Man, It’s not so bad, Man; Going about anyway like hurling Universe she is going about Anyway,  She is is the Hurling Universe, At any second it could all end No matter, we  are traveling; Going somewhere is like Pulling the wool over your own eyes And the emptiness after all Is not so b

OgFOMK ArTS Web History and Impressions

Image
6. Aug. 2017 By Alex Nuttall - Bio The word is out or in. OgFOMK ArTS is getting noticed. It definitely has to do with our emphasis on content and getting more contributions. Also the retro-publishing is helping too. Nothing worse than sitting on old content when the Universe has not imploded yet! OgFOMK ArTS Traffic since January 1st 2017 We have been using Blogger tepidly since 2005. In the mean time we went full on with our own domain ogfomk.com which at first was hosted with Yahoo. With Yahoo we were legacy Geocities refugees. Yahoo at the time that they bought Geocities was a stellar company with customer service you could call on the phone and get results with and of course just good help. But that changed.  When we went with Yahoo we started to pay $16 a month. in 2004. It didn't matter because we wer proud to have our own domain and we were learning the wondrous HTML thing. Of course our website looked like poo. Around 2007 during a failed domain p

Ape Gone Shat Mad

5. Aug. 2017 By Alex Nuttall - Bio Ape gone shat mad Constructive, destructive, constructive, destructive Living the dream One bite at a time Like the elephant really tastes that good Or the horns of the rhino were worth the effort Of cutting and killing and cutting and killing And culling The individuals that stand in the way Of the release of the prison Of the mindfulness brick Thrown through the window of the mind’s eye; Ahem, Lemme’ speak about that and address The circumspect of respect for real new fake Jumble; Ahem, Lemme’ speak about the rhythm that you Get when it is time to contract your contractions Into the future; Ahem, Lemme’ seek out the ray of light Tied into the Flexing bulge Known As Man; Ahem, I clear mine throat with washing powders And that stings like Evil stings And we all know that Evil stings a little Until it is understood; Just imagine standing under an idea.

Stephen Colbert In Russia

By Alex Nuttall - Bio Last night Stephen Colbert showed that he could be in Russia as an American and highlight the fact that Russian people are fantastic. No matter what is going on with our governments. Russia and the United States have outstanding people. I am very proud that Stephen Colbert had the guts and dignity to be himself and also to be open to going to Russia. This whole week is Russian week on the his show. Here is the professional version with a commercial:  

Transferring OgFOMK.com Domain from Godaddy

Image
By Alex Nuttall - Bio We've transferred our domain from @godaddy to @goggle. There is no excuse for DNS to be down for two days. We were redirecting anyway to blogspot (blogger). We grew tired of the whole shit-service. Unfortunately we paid up to July 2019. We wont do that again. We moved from @Yahoo to @Godaddy for the same reason.  Just pathetic. WordPress was failing. Sometimes down for up to 8 hours. The total time ogfomk.com was down last fiscal year was 10 days. Sure that is mathematically within the 99.9% but it was pathetic.  Anyway... Thanks to blogger we have been able to seriously have a great content presented while also having https! That's good. As writers we are less fearful than ever that we can finally publish what we want without filtered drivel. That's good.  We will be releasing about 300 pieces within the next year. Stuff has been piling up. All free! For 2018 we will be publishing again. We're not sure what but it will happen.

Make a Keybase.txt proof on you Blogger ~ Blogspot Blog.

Image
By Alex Nuttall - Bio PROBLEM: Proving your online presence with Blogger for Keybase.io So you just got hip to Keybase.io encryption where the motto is: "Crytpo for everyone. Not just programmers." I certainly did and you can read about that here: Where have I been, A Facebook Address. What  Keybase.io exactly is is beyond the scope of this document. You can go to the website and figure it out yourself. Now the problem is that you have a blog on-line presence aka Blogger but you don't have your own domain to do the following: #1. Host a file on your site -- You can host a text file, such as yoursite.com/keybase.txt. This is preferred, if you have a website. or #2. Set a DNS TXT record -- Instead of hosting a web page, you can place a keybase proof in your DNS records. So you are stuck basically because you can not host a simple freaking txt file right!?! Nope. I got you covered. SOLUTION :  Create a custom Redirect from keybase.txt to a gene

Where Have I Been, A Facebook Address

Image
By Alex Nuttall - Bio Where I have been? To say the least I was in shock after a certain November 2016 pole result. I'm good now. Contacting me has been difficult for some who like to use Facebook Messenger. I don't like it but I have access to it. I prefer a more secure form of communication. I always have. So if you would like to get in contact with me and get results try the following: Telegram: https://telegram.org/   Telegram Messenger Signal Private Messenger: https://whispersystems.org/ Signal Private Messenger Keybase: https://Keybase.io Keybase.io What is great about the above is that they provide end to end encryption. Facebook's own WhatsApp also provides this but the code is not open source. The three above: Telegram, Signal Private Messenger and Keybase are open source software projects. That means that we can verify and validate security because anyone who understands the code can look at it and find vul

FreeCAD Sawhorse 02.02

Image
By Alex Nuttall - Bio This is the same sawhorse as  Sawhorse 3 - 20170219  but I wanted to try the FreeCAD  software suite. It was very difficult at first. I was able to save the work and export it, but the suite could not keep all of the separate pages. As an American carpenter I would prefer to work in feet/inches as is the standard for Imperial Architectural work but the units were not available at the time of the drawing. If anyone would like to buy the plans I will produce the units in Feet (Engineer as in drawing), Feet/inches (Imperial) or Metric (mm or cm). I used the Gimp  to color the drawing. FreeCAD is amazing, but I highly recommend that you save your work as much as possible. Well worth the experiment and I'd like to see someone give the team funding because it needs a lot of work but it can definitely open up design to those who do not want to be encumbered by proprietary licenses. FreeCAD has plenty of documentation too. This is a tutorial:  https://ww

Sawhorse 3 - 20170219

Image
By Alex Nuttall - Bio This is a sawhorse. As a form carpenter I have seen so many terrible examples of sawhorses that I want it to just stop. This is a very sturdy design. I used the program CadStd ( http://www.cadstd.com /) which is very inexpensive. It also runs on Gnu/Linux (Ubuntu/Linux mint) using Wine . I also used Gimp to make it look nice.  Sawhorse 3 - 20170219 - Alexander Nuttall - OgFOMK ArTS Buy the above PDF for only $1.00. We will email it to you!
