REMEMBERING 9/11

Photo credit unknown. Found standing amidst the remains of the fallen World Trade Center two days after the devastation on September 11, 2001 were these cross beams from one of the towers. The remarkable shape of these preserved beams did not go, nor has gone, unappreciated or undervalued. In a remarkably depraved state of mind, […]

I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU DID FOR THANKSGIVING BUT I HAD A TURKEY BURGER SAMMICH AND SAID MY GRATEFUL PRAYERS

This is funny: Thanksgiving Bingo for Your Dinner Table – by Jennifer Lewis, Flavorwire, Wednesday Nov 21, 2012 Are you tired of gathering around the same old Thanksgiving table to eat the same old delicious meal while having the same old Thanksgiving-themed conversations? You know — the ones about food, football, the parade, food, politics, […]

RE: OBAMA AND BENGHAZI — “I THINK HE’S STONEWALLING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE”

No kidding. On 09/12/12, me and, likely, an estimated majority of Americans concluded that the day before that — 09/11/12 — attack on the U.S. Libyan Embassy in Benghazi was an act of terrorism. The grim and glaring “coincidences” of dates, locations, targets and behaviors was what I’d call a big clue resembling an iron […]

HAPPY THANKSGIVING 2012

It’s a day for giving thanks for all that we are grateful for. Despite one’s circumstances, there is always something to be thankful for. I sometimes wonder if but what feeling gratitude is too simple a concept such that it discourages the more hardened among us from experiencing it. But even the most hardened individuals […]

READ THIS AGAIN: “BIG EGO, TINY ETHIC”

I ask all readers to, please, read or reread this post of mine from 2008: BIG EGO, TINY ETHIC Jul 31st, 2008 at 9:48 am At this Thanksgiving, I acknowledge that there exists an unnatural personality occultism where “Barack Obama” is concerned and me encouraging readers to visit/revisit that post of mine is to encourage […]

VETERANS DAY 2012

Our national and individual appreciation, value of and gratitude to our veterans should never be refused them: our veterans have proven their willingness to protect our nation and to do so in situations and conditions that many of them never disclose out of consideration for the rest of us. We should also never exclude the […]

9/11 HEROES: GEORGE W. BUSH, SHANKSVILLE, PA SPEECH AND MORE

Bush delivered a reverent, eloquent speech earlier today — and it received a standing ovation from the audience — at the Shanksville, PA Flight 93 National Memorial Dedication Ceremony.

PELOSI HAILS ‘DREAM’ NIGHTMARE, SAYS “OOPA MUGHA OOGA OO LOUISA MUBBLE MISH, HEY LOUIE JIBBY BOO”

Oh, and Nancy managed to slip “Founding Fathers” in there, too. She claims our “Founding Fathers” “came to “America” — apparently, the Founding Fathers having created “America” later (and thus, becoming “Founding Fathers”) is missed by Nancy’s batwing intellect, what with her knowledge and awareness of reality hardly a standard upon which anything sound is […]

THE POINT OF ABSENCE:

…So through my cold lucidity of heart I thought to send you careful rules of song, But gulls ensnare me here; the sun fades; thought By thought the tide heaves, bobbing my words’ damp wings; Mind is the moon-wave roiling on ripples now. Sun on the bone-hulled galleons of those gulls Charms my immense irrelevance […]

GOD SPEED: SMITTY SHIPS OUT TO AFGHANISTAN

Go get ’em, Smitty: Cogadh No Sìth – by Smitty, November 11, 2010 …But don’t thank me; thank Americans, from the Founding Fathers forward to the Tea Parties, to my electrician brother-in-law who just runs around fixing things all day. The exceptional American dedication to individualism, the ideals of the Constitution, and the courageous soldiers, […]
