Every so often I examine some innocuous event in my life and am often rewarded with greater wisdom and insight, not only into myself, but in the world in which I live. Although I describe the recent event I’m about to discuss as “innocuous,” at the time it was very much perceived differently by mostly all that bore witness.
While driving along here in Massachusetts, a loud pickup truck passed by with a rebel flag decal on the back window. I was returning from food shopping with some family and, being Americans of primarily African descent, the reaction to the flag decal was…interesting.... Read More
The fact that I had to write a “Part 3” to this topic is extremely disheartening. I have always known, and spoke about, an element that exists within the police departments of America that has eroded trust and garnered fear when dealing with the public. To say the police are out of control is becoming an understatement. They seem to be operating by an entirely different set of standards, sanctioned by the powers that be, to enforce their will…regardless of the law.
The narrative now is that they care nothing for the lives of young Black men. The truth is even worse…they care nothing... Read More
2014 was unarguably a year of many different catastrophes, misunderstandings and human atrocities. The age old conflict between Israel and Palestine has claimed many more lives and the unspeakable acts of terror and mass murder carried out by ISIL in Syria and Iraq seem to have paralysed the global community.
It’s not just wars that have startled the world, but also a great deal of political disputes like the one we’ve seen between the Ukraine and Russia and later between the “West” and the “East”.
“It’s like the cold war all over again and I’m extremely uncomfortable with this... Read More
TRUE LIFE MIRRORING BIZARRE. RIGINAL.
Always beats me how writers and people who comment on writing: the 'self induced' painful trek they've had to scrabble to get some sort of reluctant acknowledgement of their endeavors, the climbmationary ascent effortory to reach the "unreachable" (their spiel) cliff of authorismitical verboseness they've had to endure in order to scratch out a rocky word strewn pitiless living. The sleepless nights...the "oh my god awful" REJECTION!
Bulldust! If it's that hard why do you literally belt your heads to death in the pursuit of and up against... Read More

Caught a video by http://sherayx.wordpress.com/ a while ago on her blog, I always ask myself, if Jesus was to come back to Earth, would we kill him AGAIN? It is in our nature to kill, be evil, and hate. I can back my claim up 100%, JFK, Bob Marley, John Lennon, Martin Luther King and more is the truth about us as a species, these men, and there were Woman and many more, I know, came and tried to do good, make change, inject love through their ways and means. Yeah we witness remarkable acts of individual kindness, I have seen it, and so... Read More
Along with most of you I watched True Detective from begining to end and I began to think about Cable as a medium and
not just a deliverer of content. It struck me as I basked in the glow of HBO’S current success just how badly Cable News
has failed on its promise to deliver news in a manner that the Networks could not.
As a news provider,cable has become a carny charnel house filled too often with predictable hacks,talking points masquerading as both policy and debate and the continuing bastardization of information. In fact Cable and Cable News proper has,done more to... Read More
Some judge the decay of a society by many criteria:roads and infrastructure,education,acess,Infant mortality,
poverty, and equality.
Some judge a policy by its outcomes or its shortcomings; by its short term effects; its long term sustainability or its moral center.
We seem not to apply the same criteria to capitalism - rarely if ever do we mention the morality of it or its lack thereof.
As the economic downturn has become for many a permanent depression and an opportunity by some to declare war on the poor and middle class (is there still such a thing in America... Read More
