Old Farm Road
'If God is Your Co-Pilot, Change Seats' the roadside church sign
white/black welcomed passerbys, you kept your sunglasses on the
map on your knee, I dwelled on opacity and distractedly thought
how you wouldn't buy me that 'Kid Rock' Sinatra-ish maderas
accented Glen Plaid fedora, substituting the long roll of Sweet Tarts as
penance for my hurt look when you demonstrated the pewter necklace
pendulum penis, operated by pulling a…Continue
Fox News Stands By Laura Ingraham After Defense of White Supremacist: Fox News said they are standing by Laura Ingraham’s defense of white supremacist Paul Nehle, after he and other extremists have been disciplined or banned by social media for promoting racism, anti-semitism…Continue
When H. G. Wells wrote the science fiction novel “War of the Worlds” little did he know how his famous story would be used by the powers that be. On the eve of Halloween 1937 a radio show performed by the Fireside Theater and actor Orson Wells a life like enactment of the “War of the World” was broadcast. Within a short period of time even though…Continue
and from the thought crime conspiracy file (slowly, cautiously) just yesterday at this hour in the proverbial burnt out basement, two soul-like beads or tiny spheres of light appeared parallel astride what seems to be a grey-painted-over floor, with a pronounced 'Easter Isle' type image;the non-identical sunlight'nuggets' awfully bright white, piercingly bright light like those runway lamps that strobe through the fog--so I takes the trusty Apple telephony and (believe it or…

It’s all or nothing at all.
Winter, not the MAD nuclear winter we ducked and covered under Ike, but the brain numbing chill that makes you want to hibernate, seems to be knocking like the wolf at the brick house of the third pig. I see this one in animation. The wolf’s mouth is giganticly huffing and puffing.
She is a brick house. But Science knew once, just how brickly her house was and how much she could stand. Science still…Continue
UK Student’s Nissan Entirely Covered With 20,000 Bees: A student in Portsmouth, England recently awoke to a living nightmare - 20,000 bees covering his Nissan Micra - which was parked just outside of his home. …Continue
I'm sorry that Our Salon is going the way of all things. And sorry I wasn't more support to Lorianne. (Aside from posting, I was no support at all. Arrgh. )
Anyone wishing can visit my blog at http://www.johnkmanchester.com/blog/ You can lurk or comment as you like.
This platform and Open Salon before have helped me develop my writing, which with any luck is about to turn into a career.
Mao spoke directly to his base, too.
I studied under Chinese History PhD born too late to be sent down, but he did parade tearful survivors through our class of clueless Rutgers undergraduates, nobody in that room could extract a tear from my too old to be here nearly fifty shooters eye, older even than the refugee PhD, from whom I could not extract an A, because I argued that fear and love were not expressed the same, and this was beyond him…Continue
We had some problems today with the login system. They have been corrected with a jury-rig but that will require some more work.
However, what I wanted to point out to you all is that BindleSnitch has two separate systems. For comments and group discussions, I recommend that you use the profile system. Once you are signed up, just go to MY PROFILE on the MEMBERS menu and you will be into a system that functions very much like facebook and also quite like Our…
A Congressional Research Service study of the Trump tax cuts found that their only significant consequence was to make rich people richer. Ostensibly expected benefits to the economy haven’t materialized to any significant extent. Big shock.
I could have told you up front it wouldn’t…Continue
We’re going to win big in 2020.
We’re going to Gerrymander the living shit out of America. The GOP won’t have a shot at the House for ten years.
We’re going to regulate everything in sight.
We’re going to abolish the Electoral College. All those big empty Red states will become electorally insignificant. No one will bother campaigning there. The Federal Government will take over even more land in those states. Grazing on public land will be expensive, unless the animals…Continue
June only, the begged for rain aftermath's humidity as though fancy, comfy language for a faster typist, one who knows where the young bluebirds live, where they think they hide, too muggy for the fair, the sea discouraged, its white worn waves perpetual, as deeply a praying head raises toward the arm's length horizontal ordinary summertime as though leveled by an aquatic fixer of the universe, the plight of cool water, the machines chained,…
Yes it is certainly is a pleasure to meet you again Stahi Stahi. The rocky several month aberrant behavior of OS has led to a great schism (GS) with unpredictable consequence. I see that many of our contemporaries have all but quit posting or have repositioned over at Our Salon, as you may know. The GS (through a positive lens) certainly has been a pebble in my boot--let me tell you! My apprehension of starting up elsewhere is that I found no surety of work preservation. One…Continue

Today Mitch McConnell stated that if a Supreme Court vacancy occurred in 2020, he’d push through Trump’s nominee.
I’m othered out. Not the odd man out Othered, out. Thanks to Kosh for forcing me to attempt articulation. I used to say one Man one Canoe ...I was a solo paddler by choice. Now I hike alone.
I try discourse, yet. I come from a verbal tradition of tough talk and expletives. Two hands available for defense. No notes. There was blood. This was mobility, decisively not nobility. No bodyguards, no private jets, no frills.

The call for slavery reparations
