Ignore them, they will just go away (a.k.a. stick your head in the sand)

I am Jewish. I have no interest in religion. I personally think it is one of the worse inventions that came out of the mind of man. But I was raised in the Jewish tradition, and it is part of my history, a history of which I am NOT ashamed. ... Read More

A cynic's guide to society

Based on the observations of a confirmed anti-social hermit … THE PURPOSE OF GOVERNMENT Ultra conservative – People serve the government. The government serves The Elite. Conservative – People serve the government. Liberal – The government serves the people. Ultra liberal – The people ARE the government. THE PURPOSE OF THE ECONOMY Ultra conservative – ... Read More

An ode to The Donald (and his worshipers)

‘Twas a couple of weeks before Solstice, and all through the land Too many creatures were stirring, it was getting out of hand; The stockings were put over faces with care, Spreading fear all around to there, there and here; The children were hiding deep under their beds; While visions of terrorists danced in their ...

Rules or thought?

I am not one for generalization. I often use it as a tool to make points; as a tool for sarcasm … but I don’t believe that reality can be accurately displayed by generalization. I think every fact; every interaction; every detail of life needs to be evaluated for itself. Sure we can define patterns, ... Read More

Another call to arms

Some random thoughts on peace

Since I am once again channelling my inner Don Quixote, the world … especially the internet world, has shifted in my sights again.
