Can you imagine to what group the title above refers to? Or this: We are "attacked, robbed, run over both on the street and in our houses." Or even this: "We expected friends who would not make us ashamed of our defeat. Instead, there came incomprehension, arrogance, incredibly bad/…

Sara Smile

"You don’t understand," she asserted. "It’s complicated and you have no idea what my life is really like."

“You mean those secret self-doubts you never talk about to anyone that make you question your otherwise massive self-confidence and lead you to think your "image" i… Read full post »

The Bad Shepherd

They told us everyone had to get out of their cars under the gorgeous blue sun and walk through this large, never-ending building if we wanted to get home. It didn't make sense to me and I saw the confused looks on the sheeple around me as/…

Obama Sides With Critics

"They honor me with their lips
but their hearts are far from me."

Don't worry, I'm not drinking the Kool-Aid. And I certainly know lip service when I see it (those who claim not to are fellow practitioners!). But I did get/…

What The Abuser Says

How is it the insane move among us so easily? How are they not spotted and removed for help? Is it because we're all insane? The abusers slither in the day using everyday words and phrases twisted to their own ends; deceiving, always deceiving, serving the holy/…

I pity the children of the CGI generation. They will never know true fear in film. Never has a moment so chilling and horrifying been replicated as watching the witch's soldiers marching into the heart of darkness in the Wizard Of Oz. It put me in/…

The world is a frat house I shall not want.

How easy it is to forget what we know! Six guys, one house and no owner present. It's like a mirror to the sun, a lord of the flies, this feeling of carelessness when it's somebody else's shit./…

Thank God for iPhones! This priceless rant from a Duncanville (southern Dallas suburb) student was captured as he finally got fed up with his underperforming teacher. It's since gone viral and been the talk of the town. The student, Jeff Bliss, has become a bit of a local celebrity. The school… Read full post »

Here's the third and final installment of my heron trilogy. I named it this because everywhere I went I saw a heron. Finally, I figured out there were two herons there, something I had not come across before. With precious little peace in my own life it seemed almost imperative I… Read full post »

Just Desserts

"What you doin' with that gun?"

"Going to shoot my girlfriend."

"What for??"

"Because I'm going out of my mind!"

"I thought you said she's the best thing since, like, ever."

Disconnect (Film Review)

It's been a full week since I saw Disconnect. It's taken me that much time to recover. Been a long, long time since a film has hit me this hard. This is not a film for liars or those who like to be lied to. It will/…

My First Day In The Insane Asylum

Linoleum. God, I hate linoleum. Makes me want to rebel right away. For some reason I wouldn't feel so hostile with a wood floor. A nice parquet would do. But this is just shit. But I know I can't say anything. Just be used against me. These people think they… Read full post »

Kaufman county, southeast of Dallas, is "God and guns" country without a doubt. Rural hardcore conservative "values" dominate the area like most (all?) of rural Texas. And when those values come into conflict we found out just how brittle they can be. Some people may call what happened an ano/…

West, TX Blast vs. Boston, MA Blast

Two incidents, days apart, both causing harm and devastation. How are they different and how are they alike? And what do our reactions to them say about us? Inquiring minds want to know!

Not that anybody's inquiring...

Anyway, here's the breakdown:

8 Simple Rules To Become A Terrorist

  1. Hate yourself. All terrorism starts from here: self-hatred. That is your power. It's what gives you an edge over weak, stupid people who value life and want to live. You must somehow believe the desire for death is greater than the desire for life. You've got to be able/

The Man Who Proved The World Is Flat

Rooting for their own slavery

I remember the huge roaring cheer as the pronouncement was made and I was defeated, despised and alone again, naturally. They carried the justified hero off on their shoulders. Billions around the world had awaited in high anticipation of the verdict, gatherin/…
