Re: Obama -- Dancing Like A White Boy?

perfect expansion on this topic, jack I published this on the Daily Kos and there were about 80 comments. It seems that liberals have only slightly more humor than conservatives. They couldn't decide if I was a racist or a misogynist. Haha...nobody guessed comedian. The Congo was accused of being ra...

Re: Studio8 Membership Referral Challenge

I may have to disqualify myself from this one because I have an unfair disadvantage. Thing is, I started early, jumped the gun. I've been referring folks here from my site and I can see the click-throughs. I am holding The Poet's Eye Satire Shootout and I have a link on that page to here. I've gotte...

Plato Meets The Magic Mushroom

Plato Meets The Magic Mushroom Things aren't always what they seem, but they are usually pretty close. That's my little variation on Occam's Razor. As a student of human perception and awareness, early in my studies I noticed that awareness was a subjective thing and varied greatly not only from pe...

Jobs Jobs Jobs

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs, Mantra Mundo Jobs come and go. Today we see entire occupations come and go in the batting of an electronic eyelash. This causes us great anxiety because we have come to define our lives in terms of our jobs. Ten years ago, at the turn of the century, I was working for an EDI compa...

Progress!!

Well, I sold my first hard cash sponsorship ad on The Poet's Eye today. I sold it to Poor David's Pub, a famous live music venue in Dallas. The owner, David Card, is a notorious skinflint among Dallas nightclub owners. He makes great sport of this reputation in fact. I'm half amazed that he ponyed u...

Re: Divide & Conquer

I don't believe in astrology any more than I believe in god, but I understand that both are methods we use in an attempt to comprehend the incomprehensible. God and astrology are ointments we apply to soothe our uncertainty, to reassure ourselves that on some level, order prevails even when only cha...

Re: Divide & Conquer

Doreen, Since you invited psychoanalysis, my observation is that, yes, you are paranoid, But even a broken clock is right twice a day and what you are expressing is not necessarily your own individual paranoia but the collective paranoia being felt and expressed at large in our country.

The Rite To Vote

See Full Formatted Version Here The Rite To Vote I wish I had the right to vote. If I were able to vote it would give my refusal to do it ever so much more meaning. As it is, the State of Texas has confiscated my franchise, so it is hard to determine if I'm not voting for their reasons or my own. T...

The Party's Over One of the many amusing contradictions and absurdities of the Tea Party phenomenum is that for all of their noise about the perfection and inviolability of the Constitution, it seems that what little they know of the document they want to change or ad-lib.
