Had about enough with #MAGA again again today. That means I spent a few hours reading the newz of my beloved & missed #Americant. I'm not sure if my interest in newz has peaked on account of #Trump or if I'm just having one of those feel-sorry for myself evenings on account I can't find … Continue reading Trying The Mirror This Evening But How Many Directions Can One Turn Away Away And Again Away?
There is a reason in my beloved & missed #Americant there are so many shows on brain-dead TV that make fun of conservatives. You know, The Daily Show, Samantha Bee, pretty much everything on Comedy Central and, of course, Stephen Colbert. The most obvious thing to keep in mind, though, is that conservatives, especially … Continue reading How You Know You’re A Conservative, Especially If You Think You’re Not
Well, dear worst-reader. I got five years. It's been a long time since my expat host country offered me five. For the past ten or twelve years (about half my total stay so far), it's always been a two year visa. "Two years and let's see how things go," some automaton sitting behind an ugly … Continue reading Blut Und Boden Or If You’re A Good Boy You Can Have All The Pu$$y You Want

Believing in the power of knowledge has been a worst-mantra of mine for years. That's probably why it's so difficult for me to deal with the anti-intellectualism that has overcome my beloved & missed #Americant. I mean, what else could get a man like #Trump so far in this life? Or do you actually believe … Continue reading Doing What’s Do-Able In Times Of #Trump And Too Much Freedom To Be Stupid
I tried to become a watch-nut once. Not a real watch-nut, mind you. Of course not. A real watch-nut spends lots of money on watches. Heck, I don't even like money. Anywho. A watch-nut knows what a complication is. In fact, that's the only thing that made watches interesting to me. The simpler the complications, … Continue reading Apple v Pi Or How I Slowly Got My Computing Future On
I use to think the saddest part about being poor was the food. That must sound strange considering how much of the planet is desperate for food. Yet considering what some of the richest countries collectively ingest, perhaps it's not too far fetched to make a comparison between what we eat and what eats us. … Continue reading Bowing Faithfully To The Makers And Players Of “Just Say No”
Subtitle: Thoughts on recent email exchange with an old friend. I do not think Trump’s collusion with Russia was about his wanting to be president. It was, though, about the next level of dirty-pool conservatives are willing to play and/or tolerate in order to maintain the(ir) greed $hit show. The greed $hit show, by-the-buy, is … Continue reading The Collusion Illusion Mudpie And Other Ingredients Of The Land Of Free To Be Stupid Cake
