The Doctor Is Not In

According to a few outspoken voices, it's been a slow month in Curacao. Can't say I'm disappointed. The fewer the merry-er, worst-writer always says. And as others say: good things come to an end. After ten days of too much sun and lots of scuba and no crowds, the hammer hits. We had two dives …

Hi Jack

Dreamt on May 26, 2015. After spending most of that morning jotting down the tidbits, below is what I could put together in the last few days on this glorious vacation. The thing to keep in mind, dear worst-reader, is that I'm over my jet-lag at the time of this writing between May 28-30. Jet-lag …

Klein Curacao And The Sirens

Klein Curacao. A small uninhabitable island¬†south of Curacao. I've heard several stories about this island. At one point the Germans tried to occupy it but found it too uninhabitable and abandoned it. It was also supposed to be a quarantine island for the slaves that got sick during transport to the new world. And then …

A Winnebago In Curacao

Maybe it's the ocean. Maybe it's the ocean air. Or maybe it's the ether worst-writer has found himself in. Indeed, dear worst-reader. There is something about Curacao. I almost feel as though I'm home. Not "home" in the sense that I would want to make this my home. Nor does the thought even cross my …

How To Believe

Answering the question of faith, I usually answer thus: I have not been blessed with a gift of it. Sometimes I also say it thus: I have not been blessed with the gift of faith. With that in mind, let's move beyond the spinning that takes place in my head while its trying to figure …

Talk About Pee Pee

 Professor Dr. Richard Wolff. What a guy. What a professor. And he's all over the you-tubes. Can't remember the first video I saw of Wolff. Can't remember if I was bored of it or if it just felt like a lecture at the Uni I never had. One thing is certain. I've been struggling to …

Voucher Me This

Why is it that Neo-liberals aka followers of Milton Friedman are obsessed with government spending? I ask the question because I recently saw a video of Friedman blathering about his concept of a voucher school system (yeah, just google it) and that was somehow compounded when I read a few moments later that the United …

Consequences

Reading transcripts this morning, dear worst-reader. About what, you ask. Well. About infrastructure investments of a once great structure. At first I didn't give much of a hoot about recent train derailment. Planes fall out of skies. Rockets can't reach their instellar destinations and plummet back to earth, burning up in the atmosphere. Buildings in …

Obsexxed

The sex obsessed nation-cult? Is it me, getting old, prude? Or am I just bored of it all? At the least, I'm kinda perturbed with all the here & there of sex in what I read. I mean, I scan the news everyday. Whether it's HuffPost, Reddit or Google News, etc., I'm all over it …

What's The Motivation?

Maybe I'm just too exposed to this stuff? Maybe there's been too much of it? Maybe the lies of the mind that make up #americant are so endless that it really doesn't matter if you can figure this stuff out or not. Or. Maybe someone should ask this: why this now? A simple question, really. …
