Got Earth? →
I meant to post this forever ago, and I still want a ton of these for everybody.
I’m primarily apolitical by nature. I’ve never been comfortable with politics. They intimate me, scare me and seem to often lead people who play the game into greed and power addictions that I could never tolerate personally. But that’s not to say I don’t have something to say about politics as I see them working (or in most cases, not working).

You're Fired! →
I say this to many in Congress and the media: you’re fired! This CNN article: http://www.cnn.com/2011/POLITICS/06/29/obama.news.conference/index.html?iref=NS1 says: “Obama made his remarks during a wide-ranging news conference covering the state of the economy, the wars in Afghanistan and Libya, and hot-button social issues such as same-sex marriage. It came at a time of rising questions over...

thisisnotokcupid: Another text post! (I know, how awful.) First of all, THANK-YOU SO MUCH to everyone who has commented/liked/reblogged/followed me. It honestly has surprised me that this many people think what I am doing is worth looking at. Watching my followers increase at the rate that they did was surreal to…
God and Man →
When someone’s interpretation of God’s morality conflicts with my personal ethics I do not violate my own sense of what’s appropriate in favor of another’s sense of what they imagine is divinely right and wrong. I do not kindly fear or blindly obey any God or man, but instead I choose to love all people as Gods because that divinely right for me.
Two poems I wrote today
Both with the two-word theme of: True Story Check yourself before you check me out… On Sunday I walk past a playground where Some boys I could have mothered call me baby wonder why their mothers did not care To teach their sons some manners. I think maybe They’d check themselves before they check me out But they harass me on my daily route Then Monday: pride worn in the gayborhood Yet...
Ultimate Irony →
One of the most ironic paragraphs ever: If the Chicago cops recently indicted for sexual assault are convicted, they’ll face four to 15 years in prison. That’s the same sentence Tiawanda Moore is facing for trying to document her frustrations while reporting her own alleged sexual assault: Recording an on-duty police officer in Illinois is a Class 1 felony, the same class of...

The diamond engagement ring is a 63-year-old invention of N.W.Ayer advertising agency. The De Beers diamond cartel contracted N.W.Ayer to create a demand for what are,…
Total disbelief IS condemnation →
From the article linked above: “(Because the spiritual authorities were so often ignorant about female masturbation, women caught a rare break. What was the point in condemning a practice many men didn’t believe existed?)” Women weren’t being verbally rebuked for masturbating because men so censured masturbation that they censored themselves from the possibility that this...
There are *3* R's: Recycle, Reduce, Reuse
I had a thought tonight about the last one that many seem to forget about. In addition to recycling containers, I’d like to see reuse-containers, where the public can drop off their used plasticpreviously-mass-produced) containers. This will create jobs for those who patent the idea, build the prototypes, produce the containers, place the containers, collect the contents, clean the...
If you had to lose an external stimulus: i.e., one of the five senses; the faculties of sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch - which would it be? The only one I could bear losing would be the one I’d actually love losing: taste. That way I could eat just about any food, which is completely different from now due to my super sensitive taste buds. It’s so frustratingly limiting to only...
Rites of Passage →
Rites of passage are definitely on my mind right now, for so many reasons. I have been writing ideas for my pending nuptials to Mr. Pollyanna. He proposed within the shadow of Delicate Arch on our vacation a couple weeks ago, and we’ve both been glowing ever since! Three and a half years of magic, steadily and readily progressing through a lifetime of love and light… that is our...
