Meet Rick The Prick

"Hey, Harry! You know what? You need to go see a psychiatrist. You'd be a perfect candidate!"

Let's face facts: it's hell living with other people. I swear to God if I win the lottery I'm buying five houses and not telling one fucker in the world where they… Read full post »

I know what you're thinking: We've been through tough times before. It's all gonna work out in the end. Sure, we might be on the wrong path now but we'll straighten out, just like we've always done before. Have faith! Keep hope alive! Give the world a chance!

A hurricane's remnants swept through here last year and the storm was supposed to be brutal. So naturally, that made me want to get out in it. I drove into the teeth of it which led me to downtown Dallas and past the artsy Deep Ellum district to east of there… Read full post »

Van Gogh as a Blogger

"In my picture of the Night Café I have tried to express the idea that the café is a place where one can ruin oneself, go mad or commit a crime."

Vincent eagerly emailed these words to his brother. Once more the passions had seized him, lighting his eyes and/…

I saw a man this morning, his shirt of fine white linen, his belt of an animal killed to suit his purposes, his conscience borrowed from the world - never any better or any worse - his determination being of one to avoid the suffering of both truth and… Read full post »

A Homeless Guy's Guide To Etiquette

Yes, even we have to unionize

After reading iamsurly's posting on etiquette, it reminded me of our own etiquette posting on the cinder block wall down here at the shelter. One thing that truly offends me is people's idea it's some sort of Lord of the Flies situation we got going/…

For Whom Does the Whistle Blow?

I saw in the paper where the trains that pass by where I usually sleep will be silenced. They're gonna put in some new technology or something that allows them to not need to blow their lonesome nighttime whistle. This is like a friend leaving me. That whistle gives meRead full post »

Crap posting #2 for today:

scam man
Hey, gringo, over here!

Is there anyone who doesn't want to pick my wallet?  Day labor employers, insurance people, women looking for a free ride - basically any time someone is offering you something it's to fuck you over. And the reason it keeps… Read full post »

You can read Bob Cesca's take on this as well over at HuffPo. He calls it a nightmare.

Show me one person in this country who wants goddam health insurance.  There's not a fucking one!!!!!  People want health care not health insurance.  Welcome to the greatest pickpocket in histor… Read full post »

My main man, the right honorable Dr. King.
He didn't take shit either.

I don't take shit. I don't believe in taking shit. I believe taking shit is a sin, just the same as giving shit is because if you take shit then you are giving shit to yourself - and/…

Shotgun Shelley

It's good to be loved

She was the golden child with her streaming brown hair and richly tanned face. Her eyes were deep and dreamy, shining with the light of life. Shelley was but a teenager then; a prom queen, a cheerleader and everyone's sweetheart. Parents hailed her as a role/…

Funny how many people would be exposed if O-man really did switch parties.  How many "supporters" would abandon him if his policies stayed the same but his label changed? 

This is an actual letter from an Austin woman sent to American company Proctor and Gamble regarding their feminine

Why Do You Want Obama To Die?

addiction is good!
That will fix everything

A woman walks out of her son's room and closes the door to face his accusers.

"I don't care what you say.  My boy is a good boy.  He's doing the best he can and that's God's honest truth.  You people demanding perfection have no… Read full post »

Georges Danton (1759-1794) was a French revolutionary and a colleague of the notorious Robespierre, the man who instituted the infamous Reign of Terror. The stated purpose of the Reign of Terror was to snuff out (literally) all traitors to the revolution. But in the end, even Danton fell vict/…

The end is near!

I read the news today, oh boy. That's when I found out about Obama's plan for black supremacy, to steal the brains out of our children and turn them into obedient zombies, and to put all those who disagree into re-education camps where they will be forced/…

The Magic Shoe Shine

At first glance he seemed like any other disconnected businessman, absorbed in his paper, the world his oyster. He paid no heed to the black man with his grey flecked beard who shined his shoes - and likewise the shoe shiner to his customer. The pair could have hated… Read full post »

Texas Kills Innocent Man (Update)


The New Yorker has picked up on this story giving far more details than the original Chicago Tribune article on which I based my first posting.  I will warn you, it is close to being unreadable.  I mean, it is just devastating and I had to start skipping over parts.… Read full post »

This is you: It's 1991 in the sleepy town of Corsicana, Texas (pop 25,000). You're asleep in your home when you hear your 2-year-old daughter screaming in the night. You wake to find the house filled with smoke. You tell your 2-year-old to run outside as you desperately enter… Read full post »

That Was Me You Saw

That was me you saw driving down the road with absolutely no place to go, imprisoned by the same tired landmarks, my head thrusting in silhouette screams, my hands gripping the wheel in white knuckle rage, looking for someone to run over.

That was me you saw spitting up blood/…

The Shack by the Sea

A place made special from the inside

Waking in the sand, he remembered her vivid beauty

An involuntary smile comes to his lips

The grace of her words, the comfort of her convictions, her clarity of mind

What a woman! A port of calm harbors in a stormy world

Beyond the Living Light

In the wind, the Devil's breath...

Deified demon slams shut the cell door, asking, "Who wants to live? Who wants out?"

Anxious human hands stretch through barring bars, begging for release.

"Never!" laughs the demon. "Never to be free!"
