Bullshit Drops To All-Time Low In Commodities Trades!!

There's just alot of it out there, I suppose. What we're seeing take place inside the US these past few years is actually scarier than what's going on in China. Scarier because we *know* what we are losing and we still sit on our hands and pretend that it just can't happen here. Well, it's time to... Sign in to see full entry.

Another Year In The Can...

I'm in a holding pattern...I'm holding onto my sanity for dear life. Fifteen years of intermittent periods of being drier than a haystack. Thank God for friendships and people who care. I thought I was going to tear the roof off of my local AA club a few weeks ago...someone everyone knows has been... Sign in to see full entry.

The Truth Makes Liars Possible

How absurd. How true. I hate the truth. I love the truth. I hate ambiguity and ambivalence, hypocracy and hypocrites, and yet everything I am, was or will be comes from the same point of origin -- truth -- that perpetuates elements that I both hate and love. Sometimes language doesn't do human... Sign in to see full entry.

The Trouble With Gays: An Unabashedly Heterosexual Perspective

The trouble? You weren't aware there was any problem? The trouble with gays, bisexuals, the transgendered and even the Keebler Elves is that they are, by definition, deviant. Deviant as in, "deviate from the norm." They are a minority, in other words, and this simple fact is causing all the problems... Sign in to see full entry.

Fear Versus Respect

I have a healthy respect for alcohol and other psychoactive substances...what they do to my body, the evidence has clearly demostrated, is not healthy for me. Respect is not fear; respect is the apriori knowledge of the consequences that must follow from a course of action and suggests that careful... Sign in to see full entry.

Step Eight: It's Just A Freakin' List, For Cryin' Out Loud....

"Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all." Okay, so maybe there are two parts to this step, but there are no rules that say, "you must work this step this way, or that." There are suggestions, I have suggestions, but, believe me, making a list has got... Sign in to see full entry.

Telling My Story

I suppose it is an improvement. I've gone from having two homeless guys in the back of the room listening to my story so that they could heckle me, to having a couple dozen people hearing me. People in AA are sweet, but, let's face it, my story hurts. Sometimes it's funny and I like to get into it... Sign in to see full entry.

Step Seven...I think I Missed Something...

If you're not fond of a force-feeding on humble pie, you have but one choice: pack your own on your trip up to the mountaintop. Make sure you pack for two, just in case. In the grand scheme of things there is no telling where all of this Bushevik madness is taking the planet. On the one hand world... Sign in to see full entry.

And Then, The Inevitable Strikes: What Right To Life? Why NOT Suicide?

"...in the desert you can remember your name, 'cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain..." Throughout history a person's name has been used to describe their nature, their basic character -- so that you might have some sort of framework through which to view a person and what they might...

Steinbeck's Hometown Library Needs $3.2 Million: Or, Can We Be Any Dumber?

Ask me how I know this? Because it's my hometown, too. I used to live down the street from where John Steinbeck grew up. Hell, we were both drummed out of Monterey, California -- just down the road apiece -- for strikingly similiar reasons. And how was this half-cent sales tax hike ignored at the...
