no thinking

Political correctness - a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

I think it’s reasonable to speculate that most heterosexual men think about penises other than their own and will at least sneak a peek at them if they can do so unobtrusively. The penis is the predominant symbol of a man’s masculinity and virility so it only seems natural that men are curious about them […]

Moving Forward

As individuals, as a society, as a nation, it behooves us to keep moving forward, to keep evolving as an intelligent species. We can neither stand still nor can we move backward. If you are not moving forward, you are following behind. There are no other options. The United States is on the verge of […]

The Waffle Seed

The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.
Muhammad Ali

Long ago (ancient history), back in the days of King Dubya the Mediocre, a seed was planted in the unfertile soil of Republican politics. That seed was the notion that a “real […]

Through the Past Darkly

I think I started this blog in 2005. I know it’s been through a couple incarnations. Now and then (actually quite often) I like to peruse random posts here. It’s interesting that many of my views on politics, religion, and the general state of the world haven’t changed much. Well, the rants are pretty much […]

Change is upon us, resistance is futile.

Our current economic, monetary and political systems are not sustainable. They are already breaking down as people fearfully scramble to hold onto whatever they can from these systems. Change is upon us, resistance is futile. It’s already happening.

These huge, cumbersome, monolithic systems are crumbling under their own weight and their inability to adapt. Just as […]

Are we unsustainable?

I find some of the television programming concerning mega-disasters and other ways life on earth as we know it might end to be rather interesting, not because I’m overly concerned or worried that the world might end but because so many others seem to be overly concerned and worried and others are completely oblivious to […]

Trying to help

Why is it that when you try to help people out, show them a little kindness and compassion, they repay you by trying to screw you over? Far too many people view kindness and compassion as weaknesses to be exploited. Actually, it takes strength and courage to do what’s right, to extend an act of […]

Agents of change?

“America was founded on a philosophy of individual rights, not group rights.”
Clarence Thomas

Both McCain and Obama are promising major changes if elected. What changes will actually occur after Inauguration Day is hard to predict, no matter which candidate is elected. Promising change is one thing, actually bringing it about is another. As George Stephanopolous once […]

Time For A Change

The Dream is still alive, even if it’s in intensive care and on life support. The Dream must not die. Where is that defibrillator?

I want to take this blog in a different direction. I’m not sure where I’m going to take it but I’m hoping it will be away from the masochistic, self-flagellation that seems […]
