Dreaming again

I woke this morning from a social/political dream about donating blood. Years ago when I was a college student in Cleveland, I answered a call for blood donation. The call was on behalf of a particular man who was having heart surgery. They valued my pint of blood at $30, I think. I told them to... Sign in to see full entry.

Projection and Celebrity

Celebrity is a bright candle, an incandescent lamp, a cloud-raking search-light! It draws our attention in a most superficial way to someone who somehow, somewhy, stepped into the light and stayed long enough for us to notice. We notice the presence and some outstanding characteristics, just enough... Sign in to see full entry.

Hitler is his model...

I've just heard that Mr Drumpf has made good use of Hitler's writings, keeping one of Hitler's books on his desk: MY NEW ORDER. "A collection of Hitler's speeches set in a running commentary... Millions of words have had to be eliminated, so as to retain only such speeches, or parts of speeches, as... Sign in to see full entry.

Who's President doesn't really matter in the long run...?

But this one does matter for us and the next several generations. It won't matter 5000 years from now, but to say it doesn't matter now is like saying the Germans choosing to let Hitler lead them didn't matter. The craziness of the election season, the ability of Republicans to draw a mad crowd, and... Sign in to see full entry.

Dreaming of the Profits

The American Dream has always been, in some large part, about the right to make a profit. Now that impulse has gone so extreme that it is destroying more dreams than it is supporting. But changing the holy Right of the Profit goes against so many deeply rooted traditions: beliefs and assumptions... Sign in to see full entry.

The only real choices there are this time around

I believe that Hillary Clinton desperately wants to win because she wants to be the First Female President of the United States, more than anything else. I think she whole-heartedly believes she deserves to be that, and will fudge this and that if she feels she has to, to win. I believe she will do... Sign in to see full entry.

What we eat

Over on Fbook, I came across an acrimonious exchange between a Vegan and a Non-Vegan, that started with a very interesting summary of what the chicken mind is really like, based on observation of chickens as chickens instead of as just food. Just 300 years ago, it was 'scientifically' (which in... Sign in to see full entry.
