Re: Why Care? Why Get Angry?

Maybe so but it still feels dead, poetry or not. Ya gotta right to be ANGRY, to make this America GREAT; the economy runs on noise. And go get a gun if ya feel yr freedom's at stake, because ya gotta right to shoot ... Guns Guns Guns ... It's Culture! Well at least now we know Hoffa's body is buried...

Taking it seriously is the first mistake. Maybe the only one.

Why Care? Why Get Angry?

It's not like I'm doing much to help any crisis, large or small, hustlin' off to some office every damn day to scrape up a buck, wallowing in my own self-absorbed story in my few hours of "free time" every week. I got no call. Why should I even listen to my own bullshit? I've NEVER been political. I...

Re: I've Decided to take the Title Of This Country seriously.

So obviously their peoples have NO COMMON HUMAN ground, and should forever be at each other's throats like Pavlov Dogs when whistles blow, whenever the Clown Show A...

Re: I've Decided to take the Title Of This Country seriously.

Constitution? In a teetering sense, yes. And yes, I've shaken a few preachers' hands in my day and listened to poetry. So? When ya got even Congresspeople spreading violent Civil War rhetoric, it seems to me this thing is teetering, a bit too close to going off the rails completely . . . Yet again. ...

Re: Artificial Intelligence

Ah, I goof with Zen sometimes. It's so wide-open ... going beyond mind, emptying noise and such. Yes, everything is happening exactly as it should. Including my revulsion to much of it. Starfish, yes.

So true.
Night extends the wistful

Re: Artificial Intelligence

The "Age of Reason" died many a cannon death, so why not rationality as well? We're running out of potential true brain eras in some ways.. But you know, it's always been that way, so why worry?
