Addiction; Opioids and The News

 

A couple of old friends left this morning.  I’m in a brown defunkit. (Cf.* )

Erics’s an engineer who just retired, and they are making the rounds visiting friends and family over the southeast and Florida. (cf. ^)

Always curious about how things work, as engineers tend to be, he taught me some tricks with my iPhone about…

poly 2017, celebrities/ other developments, copious links

hi all, 20th century icon hefner died a few wks ago.[a2] bummer! a very polarizing figure, public loved/ hated him. my feeling is that he helped launch a few revolutions but all revolutions tend to have extreme elements. its a remarkable historical coincidence/ timing with the Weinstein meltdown. my feeling, there is not a huge, unbridgeable amount of difference between these two figures, but the outcomes were vastly different.

have been piling up polyamory links over…

Wisdom without irony, bombast or dramatization

HEALING



By Adam Lawrence Dyer



Don’t speak to me of “healing” racism,

or “wounded souls” or the “painful hurt”

until you are willing to feel the scars

on my great-great-grandmother Laury’s back.

Don’t speak to me of “values”

or “justice” or “righting wrongs”

until you are able to feel the heartache

of my great-grandfather Graham

whose father may have been his master.

Don’t speak to me of “equity”

or “opportunity” or the…

new study finds americans 58x more likely to die from police than terrorists

I've been watching CopBlock on the internet recently.  Videos of cops killing us citizens.  Mostly white cops, nearly all people being harassed, beaten, verbally harangued and killed have been people of color.  If you google the 58x study from sputnik.news you'll get the link...But in case you missed it here's the original story of the stats from back when the president wasn't a psychopath.

From the guardian website…

Irma in the Mountains

 

The last few days have been … I’m not sure of the best adjective.  It could be stressful, or unique, or any of a number of words.

After anticipating Hurricane Irma with a mixture of dread and curiosity we had to leave on the day that the storm was to arrive in our little corner of Georgia. On Monday, L drove in rain…

Staring Into the Maw of a Monster Hurricane

Along with millions of people in Florida and the Southeast I am worried about Irma.  The latest models show the track of the giant storm shifting to the west indicating that it will go directly up the Florida peninsula into Georgia with the potential to cause damage in Atlanta and beyond.

We are in the middle of beyond.…

SF says NO to hate rally

As we started the march yesterday morning from the Panhandle to Alamo Square Park to join up with folks from various other groups, I found myself looking every which way because I wasn't sure if we'd be attacked.

An atmosphere of fear had been created throughout San Francisco by news that a right-wing group called Patriot Prayer was coming to town to do a rally that would feature and draw white supremacists, Nazis and others. Charlottesville, where two week before an…

BANNON eclipsed/ axed... but even a stopped clock is right twice a day...

hi all. didnt know much about bannon or pay much attn until a few months ago. the Left was really inflamed by him, was not sure what all the commotion was about. so what, editor of Breitbart? but its clear that the washington crowd did not recognize "one of their own" and has been clamoring for his removal since day 1....

Conspiracy of Words, Decline of an Empire

When my partner Rob and I first arrived on the south coast of the island of Crete, in 1991, it was a Swiss tourist who first realized that we were a gay couple. Barbara was the kind of person who would innocently blurt out what was on her mind. After we confirmed her suspicions, it was less than 24…

predatory capitalism, the unspeakable/ unthinkable

hi all, recently came across a new video interview from a few months ago from a dutch banker named Ronald Bernard.[a1][a2] heard about it but didnt get to it/ watch it until 2 nites ago. his information is incredible, sensational, critical, and incendiary. some will label it "conspiracy theory" others would label it "suppressed/ censored truth". the interview went viral with over 20M hits but there are presumably many who didnt watch the whole thing. but 20M…

A Word of Encouragement from Trae Crowder

Trae Crowder, the Liberal Redneck, is a comedian whose stick is making fun of conservative Southerners while holding the rest of America responsible for their own foibles.

ALERT: Trae uses profanity for emphasis and may make you uncomfortable with your own unconscious prejudices.

The "Fourth" is in full swing.  Most of you, I hope, are somewhere enjoying it.  I hope you have followed Trae's advice. Relax, things aren't the worst they have ever been.  Get drunk.  Blow some shit…
