Amazon just hijacked the word Utopia and turned it from light to dark

I have to admit, I was a little bit excited about watching Amazon’s new show Utopia. First of all, I’m a Utopian – I’ve always been someone who dreams about the possibility of a better world. Second, I saw the trailer and even though reality has been incredibly grim...

The Fall of the USA Continues

Words just can’t express how far we’ve already fallen – and yet, the crash is going to be so much more incredibly painful when we hit the bottom. We still have a long way to go. With the exception of Mitt Romney, the entire Republican Senate essentially proved that...

Sociopathism – American Capitalism is a Serious Problem

Lobsters generally don’t know the water around them is getting hotter until it is too late. Look, I admire entrepreneurship. I think that the marketplace of ideas and products is a wonderful thing. I am a firm believer in the idea that if you work hard, make sacrifices, and...

It’s Mind-Boggling How Badly Humanity Has Failed

For a species that has created hundreds (if not thousands) of religions and philosophies which essentially all say “Be kind to each other” or “Take care of each other” it’s mind boggling how badly we humans have failed. My personal belief is that those of us who would be...

I hate having garage sales – a pointless rant

Before anyone tells me not to have a garage sale if I hate having them – let me point out that this is exactly what I’m doing by writing this – reminding myself of – not to have garage sales in the future. Here’s the thing – I enjoy...

Joseph and his wife were once looking for lodging…

Bush Shoe News

Just a quick look at how Bush is leaving office. I do wonder if the Bushplugs are sitting in the Smithsonian waiting to be exhibited someday. WASHINGTON (AP) — Anti-war protesters were throwing shoes outside the gates of the White House on President Bush’s last day in office. About...

2009 promises to be like 2008- only with a worse economy

Here’s a few stories that caught my eye: German billionaire kills himself over losses. The funny thing here is that he probably still had about a billion more than me and I’m having a great time. What the fuck is wrong with people? Try living life instead of thinking...

News from Sacramento, Portland, Oahu

This catches my eye as I arrive in Sacramento: George Francis, the nation’s oldest man, who lived through both world wars, man’s first walk on the moon and the election of the first black president, has died. He was 112. and here is some of that vibe I didn’t...

Disturbing things

Housing in California And how Bush sees himself: He made no predictions about when or if he’ll be vindicated, but appeared convinced that he’s been right, even though voters repudiated his party in last month’s elections. “We’ll come back,” he said of Republicans as he chuckled. “And I’ll be...

The best farewell to Bush and Cheney I have read.

By Joseph L. Galloway | McClatchy Newspapers We’ve been treated to a real spectacle this week as President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney limped into the home stretch of their Magical History Tour, employing distortions, half-truths and untruths in a final, desperate attempt to pervert or...

The Bad News…and the Good News

There are two sides to every coin. Every good spawns an evil and every evil spawns a good. Not to mention, if you take the long view of things, black and white, good and evil…tend to become less distinct. For example: The bad news is that 80+ people died...
