Right from the beginning, in 1997 when I first went online, I started dabbling now and then in addressing legal issues in short articles--which are, inherently, political issues. I was inspired by what I saw as a poor decision in the regulation of the television industry, and that opened the door to a short section, ending with a major series addressing the Internet laws C-Net was proposing.
Then in 2012 I was bombarded with questions about whether Barrack Obama was ineligible to be President, and perhaps being a bit annoyed (like the unjust judge who helps the widow just to get some quiet, or the neighbor hounded at midnight by a neighbor for some bread) by the persistence of the issue and the questions I composed an answer, then discussed publishing it with the editorial staff at The Examiner (where I was already publishing time travel film analyses and news). That led to an explosion, well over a hundred articles in two and a half years.
Then it came time to terminate the relationship with them. In order to preserve the materials, some of it still quite on point but some of it very much dated, I decided to consolidate everything here--consolidation including combining articles that were originally separate pieces published in series over weeks or months into unified single articles, reindexing everything, and expanding this site section (and the Temporal Anomalies section as well) to include it all.
The original index of law materials here, though, was relatively simple and would not easily be expanded to include the new materials. I had been creating semi-annual indices of the Examiner materials, and decided that the best solution was to create an "index of indices" to assist the reader in navigating the materials here.
Each linked index is described briefly with the topics addressed during that time. Many topics recur throughout the run, and so appear in multiple indices.
Since 2015, the majority of new political pieces are published through the mark Joseph "young" web log on this site, in the category Law and Politics and many related tags.
The indices are listed here in chronological order.
