I don’t do guilt. I definitely don’t embrace collective guilt when we should be implementing collective responsibility. Guilt is like bondage. It is a thief… it robs from your life. It doesn’t garner my sympathy, especially because ‘sympathy’ in my dictionary is located between shit and syphilis…

I have more than a wee bit of trouble with people who just refuse to listen. Like in politics, or with bad spouses. I mean, no one is as deaf as a person who will not listen. As if they … Continue reading

It is a tragedy of the world that no one knows what he doesn’t know – for the less a man knows, the more sure he is that he knows everything. Too bad we didn’t get to know what Harambe knew. Perhaps it was that he’d rather die a meaningful death than live a meaningless life. For the tragedy of life is what dies inside a man or beast while he lives…

Perhaps because I live alone I find it harder to find someone to blame. Except the weather. But there’s nothing I can do about the weather. Just as there is nothing I can do about all those folks from Florida … Continue reading

Today we live in the age of the refugee in exile. Those of us who leave our homes in the morning and expect to find them there when we return at night don’t really understand what the experience of a refugee is like. Nevertheless, to stop this horror we must inflict something even more horrible…

As a teenager my grandfather escaped conscription and a lifetime of servitude in the Tsar’s army by hiding in a big hand basket on a railroad freight car that brought him through Poland and Europe. Eventually he hopped a ship … Continue reading

I don’t mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that’s how it comes out. However, I am always being sincere, even if I don’t mean it. And now it’s Autumn: So let’s be colorful, shed our clothes and run naked thru Iran, Syria, Iraq, Kenya and the rest of that world where duh barbarians are killing women and children for idiotic dogma…

It took me no more than 5 seconds to utter my truculent, exasperated words to kindly Big Bruce at the gym early yesterday morning. And then immediately rue them for the rest of the day’s remaining 86,395 seconds. Bruce’s colorful … Continue reading

You may be a redneck if… you’ve spent more on your pickup truck than on your education. The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and critically. Intelligence plus character is its goal. Hmm… Ghana is undergoing an education revolution — and I’m going to investigate…

  As school bells bellow another academic year I want to share some sage counsel a rock and roll star once conveyed: If you wanna get laid, kid, go to school, especially college. But if you wanna get an education, … Continue reading

This is not the time to talk of gun control! About the same day as Newtown, school children were slashed in China; drones killed women in Pakistan, Children were abducted in Africa…If the Palestinians gave up their guns there would be no more war; if the Israelis did, there would be no more Israel…Teachers should have guns, too…

My congenitally ill younger son has been on the fast track to die. And after years of battling a stormy sea too deep, being swept further away from the foggy shores of medical miracles, my wife finally stole his challenged … Continue reading

What do we do about Murdoch and his ersatz news organization? We hire him to do bigger, better and cheaper what our government buffoons can barely do at all. Remember, he is still the enemy of our enemy…

Listen: It’s always easier to fix the blame than fix the problem. So now that we’ve blamed Murdoch, what’s to be done about the problem? Precisely the same thing we do with hackers that get inside corporate and government main … Continue reading
