Re: The Border Wall

Thought this might be a good time to inject a little comic relief into how the U.S. "helps" other countries. It's Venezuela in this case, but if Mexico managed to get themselves a leader who didn't meet our approval we'd be helping them some more too. Especially if they were oil rich to boot. :) htt...

Re: The Border Wall

Am I jaded? Not at all I just see too deeply into the whole fucking affair to even raise an eyebrow though I had a lot of fun writing the above. Touche. :) Will humanity wake up? Sigh. But then again, to what degree are we "the woke", really awakened. That is a question I stab into myself evey day....

Re: The Border Wall

Okay Fred, you are somewhat right about the State run Media never showing the truth. However I fail to see how you and I are responsible for carnage and such that is going on in the foreign countries. If you are saying in a round about way that the US Corporate government is responsible then I woul...

Re: The Border Wall

Isn't it odd that the virtual U.S. State run media never shines the light of truth on WHY so many desperate people continue to stream north over the years and decades? Could a good part of that reason be our long history of control and regime change in Latin America? It's the same in places like Afr...

Days Gone By

I find old film like this utterly fascinating. As many of us are not so far removed from our elder sunset years any more, I wonder how our brief life summaries on camera might look to people a century from now, as these from 1929 look to us here in the present. Of course so on and so on as the centu...

You didn't die alone today

My wife came across this on Facebook, in the Knoxville Crime Watch of all places. As lifetime dog lovers and owners it made us both cry. I thought this would be the most appropriate forum to share it, powerful stuff. Katie Nicole Flowers February 27 at 11:00 AM You didn’t die alone today. I don’t kn...

Re: This week in review

You know I regularly contemplate what horrible practices used to be commonly acceptable (of course the examples are numerous), which today are seen as reprehensible to "modern" sensibilities, and then I scan our current practices for what may in future times be greatly frowned upon; quite possibly e...

Re: The Doors: the story of Strange Days and the madness of Jim Morrison

One thing I find interesting about the story of The Doors is that Jim would have been nothing without his bandmates, and they would have been nothing without Jim. Another is I think there is a lesson here in that our inner wild child (like our friend fire) can indeed be constructive in it's destruct...

Re: Why is everything going downhill

The concepts of death and rebirth going together are not an issue . Living out of balance is . Not asking why a butterfly lives only two weeks. But I am wondering why do humans live around 80 years of a distorted fucked up kind of life. Not the egotistical quest for immortality that I am after. But...

Re: Why is everything going downhill

I like to answer good questions with further questioning: Would this be akin to asking our councils of trees in the forest, or our forbearers for example, why they don't/didn't "live" forever?
