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.

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.

OS Lament.

writers block, reader shortage...troubles, troubles, troubles

   Nostagla for a 10,000 hit post. I could post a short poem and get no less than 250.  I am the sole Open member online. The cafe I do my public hours in has a for rent sign in the window. I’m stuck at page 162on a 300 page project. 

   I always got unblocked on OS. Writers write, but my last ten pages are just terrible...I mean worse than bad. It was the SCOTUS thing that broke me. I was hanging on by a…
