Wondering what Howard Schultz’s positions are as a candidate for president. He’s said a few things that sounded reasonable to me. Not the typical politician’s non-statement that sounds good but means nothing. He’s running as an independent. I’ve heard him say the 22 trillion dollar national debt is the country’s biggest risk and that nothing is “free” from the government. Apparently, he introduced a lot of benefits for Starbucks employees, including healthcare and higher education support. I think he is worth watching. These guys don’t get to be chairmen of large and successful corporations without smarts. But would an independent, without national party support, have a snowball’s chance?

I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up. View all posts by Henry Barnard
