Chapter 1 – “Stay Alert, Yet Relaxed”

“Dogs are mans’ best friend, “ said an anonymous sage observer many years ago.

Dogs use all their senses, sometimes in mysterious and amazing ways, which human beings are unable to comprehend. Nonetheless we appreciate and benefit from them.

Look, listen, and watch your dog because you will learn some valuable lessons. This book includes many things I and others have learned with the help of our dogs about life.

Dogs live in the moment. Humans are…

Dear Family, Friends, and Supporters,


I have just witnessed my second-in-a-row fantastic moon sets from Estrella Vista.

Last night was a full moon on a clear and slightly warmer midnight than the two nights

before. It is not yet 7 a.m. and the eastern sky is beginning to show great colors of reds,

yellows, and oranges.


This is a magnificent estate which my brother created to help young men and women,

who endured child abuse and then had to be prosecuted as adults for murders they were

led to do while children. Fairness in American justice may never be achieved but giving

perociles a chance to lead more normal lives can be a reality. Estrella Vista stands today

– without its visionary founder – as that beacon of safety, security, and hope.


So in the spirit of keeping the beacon burning bright, I am asking”Wandervogel Diary”

readers to respond with their best efforts to keep the vision, mission, goals, and

projects of The Redemption Project moving into the right direction.


Your support of new administrators of the project, Dan’s son Henry,

and many others working on the project will be appreciated very much.

Where ever I may be, I will be praying, thinking positive, and looking

forward to reading about your future successes.


All the best,



David A. F. N. “Buck” Dailey

The Democratic Party: Let it Burn — Armory of the Revolution

Originally posted on Social Justice Otaku: The DNC is crumbling. They’re on fire and they’re desperately putting water on it while pretending everything is fine. They put the blame on the voters, even though it’s a fact that their demise is their own doing. If you don’t listen to the people you’re suppose to represent,…

Inside the Failing Mission to Tame Donald Trump’s Tongue

by Alexander Burns and Maggie Haberman, The New York Times

August 13, 2016

Donald J. Trump was in a state of shock: He had just fired his campaign manager and was watching the man discuss his dismissal at length on CNN. The rattled candidate’s advisers and family seized the moment for an intervention.

Joined by his daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, a cluster of Mr. Trump’s confidants pleaded with him to make that day—June 20—a turning point.

He would have to stick to a teleprompter and end his freestyle digressions and insults, like his repeated attacks on a Hispanic federal judge. Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump’s campaign chairman, and Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey argued that Mr. Trump had an effective message, if only he would deliver it. For now, the campaign’s polling showed, too many voters described…
