...Just Not Today



There are those who say most suffering in the world is needless and self-inflicted, that the sin in one area breeds heartache in another, like a used car salesman who swindles his customers who is then unable to… Continue

Hate to say I told you so?

Well, for 9 years now I have been between OS and OS pointing out the obvious, that nearly half of white amerikkka is made up of a large, unwashed, uneducated and entirely hateful group of pieces of white shit. Fucking Haoles as we call them on Maui.

Weigh in, oh great writers of the Interwebs, explain away how my constant near decade long attempt to explain the Dunning School was off base.

See you in VA!

Back To The Future...

It seems no matter what we do all roads lead back to the future. Like for instance: Didn’t we "duck and cover" once already? Did we not build bomb shelters already? Where are they now?



We were watching a CD (yes, even those are now Blu-Ray CD’s…sheesh.) of the Ed Sullivan Show (the early Beatles) including the "old commercials." Huh. I did'nt know Anacin could be used to fight depression…

Charlie Gard Dies - is this death by socialized medicine?

No.  

Despite articles in the right wing press like this one in the National Review (The Court-Ordered Killing of Charlie Gard) what happened is not evidence of socialized medicine’s failures, but of a court doing what courts do, which is…

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…

Total eclipse of the sun

For months now, I've been thinking ...oh, 99% that's pretty close, close enough anyway.  

Right?  

I'm not so sure now. I've been doing my googling and 'they' are saying, just that one percent makes the difference between interesting and totally awe inspiring.  Life changing, even.…

Tomorrow, I will Start Reading Proust.

Like many others, I have been living in a state of constant vigilance since early November of last year.

The world I knew and trusted has been turned on its head and shaken out sideways. Keeping a…

Making trig laugh

Note: I mopped up the tears and went grocery shopping yesterday. Winn Dixie, of course. When I finished loading my car, I heard a cheery baritone voice behind me say, "I'll just take that cart, thank you." I turned around and the man standing there could've been trig's twin. I froze. And two big tears rolled down my face. Alarmed, the man said, "Are you ok?"



"Now I am."

Giggling gods

People make plans and the gods laugh...

A year ago I told my boss I'd retire after the summer programs were done. I offered to volunteer enough hours to keep my beloved arts camps and apprenticeship programs alive. 

I knew the Rockford Arts Council couldn't afford me anymore. Donations and corporate contributions were down in a local economy that has never recovered from any recession. And we weren't getting our operating grant from the state any time soon. Illinois is in a…

Takes One to Know One - Happy Fathers Day, Terry

I've been living in Bastrop, TX since September 2016 and I haven't written much about that experience.  It's pretty routine in that everyday I get up sometime before 8:00 am have my coffee and smoke my cigarette out on the porch and then check out what's going on at Our Salon.  Sometime between 10:00 in the morning and 3:00 in the afternoon I get in the car and take my older brother Bill out for breakfast or lunch and make sure he takes his pills.…

50 Years Ago Today - One Post Abandoned for Another

For the past week or so I've been collecting links to stories about the situation in Portland, Oregon with the idea of posting about how the grotesque hate crimes of a deranged maniac, whose name I will not mention resulted in the murders of Rick Best, 53, and 23-year-old Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche.  Anna Herrington posted…
