C’était une poème

I sing the infrastructure blues cause I just can’t get there from here moving around the world’s damage while I carry my own gotta route around the damage because I gotta see her she’s just past that road closure dying in the hospital and now I must think of all the times I coulda fixed […]

A good week

Saturday, April 5th, 2014

I’ve had another great week at work; we’re doing a bunch of training for a new computer system and after Epicor’s Avante it’ll seem like roasting marshmallows and drinking beer. And I got paid. Gotta like that! I descuzzed the kitchen surfaces (except the sink, Jeff got to it  before I did) and now am […]

Jeff and I are off to Thrifty’s once he wakes up. I have been thinking about what I like in an actor. A good actor works consistently and takes time off only when she must.  She tries different roles and treats everything about herself as a component of performance. She can differentiate between the toxic […]

god, libertarians suck

my response to two of them   You fellas are adorable. When the first peoples came to Turtle Island, there was nobody to conquer. (Although the megafauna, were they still around and sentient, might object most strenuously to that categorization). They spread out, established territories, and sure, fought among themselves as people do when displaced […]

Interesting article on the Correction.

Oh for the love of Pete

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

My investment counselor sent me something today “Here’s two economic indicators showing it’s time to buy!”  Bogus indicators.  Here’s what I wrote back.   I’m not convinced.  The markets in China and Brazil have fallen off, there are signs of an ugly power struggle coming to light in China, the euro-zone crisis is nowhere close […]

Pierre-Joseph Proudhon quote

Monday, July 9th, 2012

To be GOVERNED is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so. To be GOVERNED is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, […]

Marion King Hubbert saith he:

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

The world’s present industrial civilization is handicapped by the coexistence of two universal, overlapping, and incompatible intellectual systems: the accumulated knowledge of the last four centuries of the properties and interrelationships of matter and energy; and the associated monetary culture which has evolved from folkways of prehistoric origin. The first of these two systems has […]

Provoking read.

Nuff said

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

I watched the helicopter video of the assault on the Oakland OWS folks Gas.  Un fracking believable.  And oh look. So instead of showing the veteran who was injured by the assault by the police on peaceful protesters, they show an Oakland cop petting a kitten.  If you see the video, you will be […]

Occupy Wall St extended quote

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Alan Grayson: Now let me tell you what they’re talking about. They’re complaining about the fact that Wall Street wrecked the economy three years ago and nobody’s held responsible for that. Not a single person has been indicted or convicted for destroying twenty percent of our national net worth accumulated over the course of two […]

Tuesday’s terrific tracks through the intarwebs

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

The thing about higher chordates is how we can look similar. Jesus!  Potentially toxic extremophile fungus in the dishwasher? Playing with our food. Not finding any food at all. I keep finding reasons to want to go to Chicago. I didn’t much like the article, but I enjoyed the illustration of proto writing. Jesus! That’s […]
