Day Two: The Show Goes On

     

            I don’t have to drive; the rain sloshes as I peck,down the roof of the double wide. Again new play today, not golf...but live performance. The state of the art is strong. 

             The emergency is real, but not at the southern border, or even what’s new. The lack of fear is a little scary, but we are old. 2021 January. What happens today and every day out there in the almost real world until then is what is new. 

              I am glad to be able…

Never hold an auction at a memory care facility.

The participants make a real hash of it  This happened to me when I went to the beach to see a big, fat, red faced bunch of cheap ass Republicans try to raise money for the town.  The dialogue went something like this:

AUCTIONEER: Now 200. 200. Do I hear 200? 250! Does anyone have 250? 300! 350? 350?350? 300 now. Going once. Going twice. Sold for 200!

BIDDER: I bid…

Two Sundays

      I’m rushing off to Sunday number one, for some reason on Saturday. A rare double performance dictated by Sanskrit or some other written or unwritten source beyond my limited ability to comprehend anything much, and less,for certain, than I did when I was a teenager. 

      Counter Intelligence, double dose. I’ve not time to dawdle, or peck away here, as duty calls. I don’t have to drive even. 

       Saint MAHI is past go, and spring is here. Late and wet, with pale…

WOW {poem}

My voice in the voice of my voice talking to my voice an inner voice

hearing itself voice its own voice voicing voice above ground, nuanced

voicing louder as living voice ought to voice, a raucous certain voice

euphonious, that of a wolf voicing wow: harmony.

One dude coming back from lunch, a salami in his pocket, confronts a

wounded man, well, all the wayfarers…

Trump Admits There’s No Real National Emergency

Bell Bottom Blues

        I’m not obsessed with fish...well, maybe a little. Another bird got killed on my feeder yesterday. For seven years not one bird got hurt, and now two in two weeks have got their feet caught in the decorative copper leaves that are attached around the feed cylinder. It makes me want to cry. I have to replace it. 

        The rain keeps coming down. At least it’s not snow, and the house flipped. I’m fine, not driving, and, as always, fearlessly optimistic. 

         I…

Teaching Trump About Checks and Balances

The Republicans acted as obstructionist spoilers throughout the Obama administration.

This is where the Democrats are headed with exercising their constitutional check on Trump's executive powers:

Veto Proof Budget Legislation Shuts Down Both Threats: There Will Be No Government Shut Down, There Can Be No Effective Declaration of a National Emergency

Someone once asked Trump if he had ever read the Constitution of the United States. Nearly everyone who heard that question knew the answer, even the staunchest of Trump supporters and. hist most loyal followers know that he isn't big on reading anything.

It has become painfully clear that he, and his inner circle of advisors and aides, don't read much of anything pertaining to running the government or how the government works....

So, it should be no surprise to anyone who's…

The Persecution and Exoneration of Immanuel Velikovsky

We have been given the impression by academia, the media, and our government that science is an objective attempt at establishing truth through careful study and thorough research. We were taught in school that scientific principal was at the heart of all of our core social beliefs and understanding of the universe. We were told that as far as…

The Asymptote of Progress

First the Concorde, now the A380. The light is dimming as the Permanent Dark Age dawns. Once you've filled in the periodic table, life changing innovations peter out. My paternal grandfather was born in 1880 and died in 1967. Just consider how the world around him changed over that span of time.

- automobiles

- telephone

- radio

- TeeVee

- aircraft, and all that brings

Saint MAHI

         The saints come or go, but they march nonetheless. Weaponized humans, all of us, just waiting for the preprogrammed sequence that kicks us into operational mode, marching as to war, but not quite. 

        Who came first? Nixon to China or Kissinger to America, and what does all this have to do with my pecking away here today  about saints marching? 

         MAHI is forty three pages from three hundred, ten and a half months into first drafting. The saints march. The…

Account Closed

      Have you read that I’m half out? I am. As I await my first social security check I am doing half of what I was until after the midterm results balanced my post SCOTUS pick depression, leading me to conclude that the time had come for me to pull the rip cord. 

      I’m doing better, thanks, and half as much. The kids are grown up, and in Congress, too. Who knows? I’ve been a fearless optimist for quite a few years now. Try playing that in the field every day, seven days a week.…
