Re: first there were doodles

Like this. Maimed metaphors, or even "invented" ones? growing wings ..
Can artistic creation still move us? Shape us? Connect us?..

Re: More Lost Mines and Seekers

Part of a long wander. Musins' on stories I picked up. While living at the mine, I found (some) of the mining lore fascinating. The older stuff, that is, not the conglomerate mountain-gouging behemoths. (The guy who hired me hated those monsters.) Thanks..

Re: Creed of Greed

It's not so much that all these conceptions are entirely "wrong." More like they're only part of a bigger picture. Like Newton's laws weren't "wrong," just part of a much bigger relativistic space/time picture, as Einstein pointed out. There's arguably a time/place where components of self-interest ...

Re: Creed of Greed

I read about the Ayn Rand Conference this summer. Good god. Greed is not only good, but anything other than greed is morally inferior!.. Anyway, it does seem like "we'll reap what we sow" with this culture of greed. (And hate.) (And militarism, for that matter). We're seeing it play out.

Creed of Greed

We live the Creed of Greed.
Greed, the cultural pinnacle.
Greed and scorched earth.
One big gang-bang jerk fest.
Christ will just have to wait.

Re: Gun Rights

The rest of the world is mystified at our inaction (not that we should give a shit about what the rest of the world thinks, but ...) which ties in with the other thing I wrote. WHY the inaction ?! ... Because all we have are CYNICAL DIVIDE AND CONQUER POLITICS, people. WE HAVE NO REPRESENTATIVE GOVE...

More Lost Mines and Seekers

(Revised and updated-- yet again! Part of an ongoing fascination in my wandering.) Notes : The "jumping mountains" are Nevada's fault-block type ranges; they actually "jump up" along faults between basin and range as they tilt and shift. I've written here a couple times about them. "Red's porch" ref...

Re: Politics is Evil

Without Politics (TM) there'd be no Oligarchy.
Without an Oligarchy we'd have no "rules,"
and "laws" are made or broken. For Profit.

To hide an Oligarchy, pretend it's government.
Take away our money, give it to the Crony Tribes.
Pretend their goddamned Talking Points matter.

Politics is Evil

Politics is evil, the main thing to remember.
They started with good intentions, like other
roads to hell, but became a free-for-all with
no truth unless it made some kind of profit.
