"There is a natural aristocracy among men. The grounds of this are virtue and talents."

An out-of-breath fourteen-year-old girl in cheap shoes hurries to cross the street, her hand clenches over some cash and an electricity bill. A mother feels like forty miles of bad road, stands abandoned in a super market and ponders whether to buy milk or bread. After he sees his neighbor's newer… Read full post »

Let us say—not “Since we know, we love,”
But rather “Since we love, we know enough.”

99 + ? = 100

 

When it comes to discourse, short is sweet, easy does it, and some logic goes a long way; however, sometimes a bit of finesse renders a statement beautiful. When asked by Ed Schultz on MSNBC should the democrats embrace the Occupy Wall Street crowd, our Joan Walsh—whose demeanor on theRead full post »

“Hypocrisy in anything whatever may deceive the cleverest and most penetrating man, but the least wide-awake of children, recognizes it, and is revolted by it, however ingeniously it may be disguised.” Leo Tolstoy

The American Dream: Last Call

The idea of bailing out Wall Street in a deregulated capitalism is far more fantastical than that of a casino giving back all the money a guy lost cheating all night in cahoots with the dealer.

Realizing he will eventually fall asleep, let alone he’s not theRead full post »

“Soccer is a civilized and fair game of keep away, with a goal in mind.”

Slutingham vs. Everwood

 

Ms. Slutingham sues Dr. Everwood for sexual harassment, indecent exposure in a department store. She claims substantial emotional distress, and both compensatory and general damages. Although the evidence is vague on the indecent exposure charge, the case still goes to trial. Ms. Slutingham isRead full post »

Happy Birthday Patricia


 In Ancient Egypt, the many gods were simply different manifestations of the universal consciousness, the One God: Ra, the Lord to the Limit. All the Gods were one; all were children of Ra. Whether God was Atum in Heliopolis, Ptah in Memphis, Thoth in Hermopolis or Amun-Ra in Thebes, the ancient

The Myth of Origins


Every state begins with an initial act of illegality, murder or theft or both. The owners of the new state hire some gofers to create a ‘myth of origins’—a bullshit story inspiring national pride. Ours was taxation, rather than genocide. Later, a “Christian nation” was aRead full post »

Socialized Medicine vs. Evil


This piece was triggered by Lunchlady 2’s post (Do You Want To Do Something About Insurance), and is dedicated to Lunchlady 2.

F.U.C.K. (Folks Using Crack Kids)

Katherine wakes up at 10:00 AM, reaches into a solid gold box studded with rubies for a small wooden container, scoops a little ball of the finest opium paste on earth, and smears the paste with her little finger on the back of her teeth. She lights her Davidoff cigarette withRead full post »

Poem: Heaven Is You

Heaven Is You

Does a meadow know whose heart has bled;
What souls have longed, what words were said;
Whose love was just, whose dick was led;
Who kiss’d, who fuck’d, whose tears were shed?

I saw you walk by and I found my gift
I watched your song: a shift then a rift
The beat

Power, religion has, merit; religion has not. Recently many voices warn against the dangers of religious fundamentalism, especially the rising militant right wing evangelicalism. No, I will not pick on Evangelicals; although, if the right wing crusaders get their way, Islamist terrorists will look liRead full post »

The Love Story of Mancando Platonic


Man and Romantic Love

There is love of family, love of fellow citizens, love of all humans, love of the universe; and altruism, the highest form of love. There is also romantic love, which literally makes other kinds of love possible. Yet, there is only one kind of romantic love, whichRead full post »

New Feminist Law of Looking

 

This is not about how women should dress in public—my only wish is for them to match their clothes. The days when parents told their daughters to go back up and change because they looked like whores are gone. Male sexist claims such as “provocative or revealing” dress have bRead full post »
