Got 200 Looks : Still Depressed.

Happy go fuckyourself. That’s how I used to be, back in those heady tailwind days when there was still a functioning EPA.  I was good with the kids taking over and me fading away. I got 46 years in...and my body is shot, so why not kick back and rot away? 

Are only us old fucks posting here? Maybe I’m not as depressed as I was last week,  before I ate some bad pork in a bowl of ramen. I should have stuck with the miso. Being sick as a starving dog for a day makes being able to hold…

Thought For The Day - 19 October 2018

OK. What are the odds that the latest 'caravan' was instigated by the The Manchurian President brigade? The perfect October Surprise. The Honduras nasties get a few bucks and rid of some malcontents. The Manchurian President gets his 'issue'. 99.44%.

Little Red Rooster

We had a rooster. It was white.

Most of my background is white except for my first job working with grandma in the Salvation Army Store on Union Avenue. I hung clothes and pushed a  broom across the wooden plank floors.

Piranha-Like Fish Fossil Discovered in Germany

Piranha-Like Fish Fossil Discovered in Germany:  Researchers say they’ve discovered an ancient Piranha-like fish in Germany - a fish that would have been capable of ripping the flesh right off the bones of its prey.  Scientists say these finds are normally rather difficult to date, but luckily - the fish was found wrapped in a very old New York Times crossword puzzle…

The Media and the Midterms

    I started out my professional life as a journalist, trained in it, and came to New York City for that purpose.  Specifically, a print journalist since I wasn't pretty or nice enough to get on TV.  My hero's were "investigative reporters," who broke the stories that changed the world, of course.  I wound up with jobs at places like Metalworking News, and…

A Feature, Not A Bug

Just go read this piece. Calls bullshit. Just as any intelligent analyst did at the outset. Shift $1.5 trillion from the many to the few, blow up the deficit, and round up the usual suspects.



One way to think about it is from the perspective of a small-business owner. Let's say you run your own bakery. You sell bread for $4 a loaf. Today, you sold 90 loaves, for $360 in revenue. You…

1 Sentence: PROGRESSIVES PUT AN UNWARRANTED FAITH IN...


FAR TOO MANY PROGRESSIVES PUT AN UNWARRANTED FAITH in the orderly, inevitability of Justice. Be not a Romantic nor a Cynic: Be a Skeptic...one who knows that nothing is historically inevitable, that Good and Evil are both always possible...so work and hard for good and for Justice in every small and large way you are able.

Hard Work & A Result: My Wife's Transplant & Her Donor

Image result for israeli police brutality

There is zero question in the mind of any intelligent person (at least those who aren't "living the agenda!") that Israel has one of the most brutal and maliciously abusive police and military on the planet.  Anyone who would say differently has either been living under a rock for the last 70 years or is outright lying. …

1/1,024th



It's time to get moving into the day.

Two strong cups of coffee behind and I'm finished rummaging through headlines and giving cursory attention to off the beaten track YouTubes.

What in the hell am I 1/1024th of, I wondered ? If anything at all it is not readily apparent.

But I couldn't help but wonder why anyone would hang their reputation on such a slim bit of hyperbole.

It bothered me. Anything that could make the current POTUS seem reasonable bothers…
