We are human beings. Not human doings. It would help if we did not identify ourselves by what we do, and that includes meditation. What we are, in essence, is unknowable. What is consciousness?
As long as merit continues to be doled out dependent upon what one “does” for a living (and should we be forced to do ANYthing, just to survive?), we…[Read more]
After the Dems shoot their wad at Frump, it’ll be Rhonda to the rescue! Rhonda Santos, I mean. Help me Rhonda . . ..
After all, the Repugnantcunt party is not without other scary monsters. None that the Dems will profit from as much as they have from Frump, but plenty who would step up to fill Frump’s gilded vacuum.

Better late than never.
Imagine having the power to bend the banks to your will. I had Dead Can Dance tickets during the pandemic. The show got cancelled and Ticketmaster refunded my OLD BANK ACCOUNT, which I had already CLOSED! I had to contact the old bank to get them to send me a check from my closed account. The bank was as shocked as I was…[Read more]

So if he has only been in CONgress for ten years, then why would anyone vote for him as Speaker of the House?
Why? Because Mama Bear said so? Oink! Oink!

is there more profit in misery than in satisfaction.
More profit can be made from people’s misery than from their empowerment.
Utopian Leftist replied to the topic So why isn't Ghislaine Maxwell's list of clients released to the public? in the forum General Discussion 2 months ago
Only when it comes from a woman or a minority is money/power messed with.
In this case, I think Maxwell is primarily being persecuted because she committed the sin of allowing her crimes to become public knowledge, and the public outcry might otherwise be uncontrollable. Like with PharmaBro (can’t remember his name now). He was a white male but…[Read more]
about photography. I just joined this group to say that I really appreciate that first photo. It instills a sense of tranquility. A scene in search of a story is what it makes me think, haha: like a still from a movie.

What else would motivate a corporation to produce an advertisement of such poor taste, other than disguised, evil intent?
KFC issued a follow-up on the app that blamed the tasteless promotion on “an error in our system,” and added: “We are very sorry, we will check our internal processes immediately so that this does not happen again. Please excus…
The expression on that statue is arrogant and authoritarian.
If they wanted to accurately portray QE2, they ought to have striven for humble, dignified and constipated, as she always appeared in reality.

“When you win, bring it back to Malibu, because I’ll feel much better knowing there’s a piece of me here.”
So the Oscar is a “piece” of Mr. Madonna now? Precisely which piece of himself is he martyring for this cause de jeur?
The Repugnantcunt Party: “Please, kindly go to HELL!”
The Demicrapic Party: “Please go to HELL in this shiny, new handbasket!”
Alternatively to voting, I offer my plan: First of all, these days, drag queens are about the only people who even know what a handbasket is. I’m not sure why HELL is supposedly preferable in one of those. Regardless of…[Read more]
would make me join Twitter.
I still don’t see the value of it OR Instagram for that matter. How many platforms do you need, to advertise the Lean Cuisine of a social life that you wept into last night?
(And is it just my bad luck, or do “Keanu is a saint” memes circulate everywhere in cyberspace?)

Great article and your comment is right on.
The powers that be want swagger to be the only power that matters to anyone in our culture. Because swagger is pretty much all they are. Money and power with enough swagger can accomplish anything it wants in this country. The people are that easily manipulated. When we throw of the shackles of toxic…[Read more]

Screw X-mas. Capitalism already has robbed it of its meaning anyway.
Great post, I agree completely.
For a democracy to have actually happened in this country, we would need a genuine “fourth estate.”Fourth EstateThe term Fourth Estate or fourth power refers to the press and news media both in explicit capacity of advocacy and implicit ability to frame political issues. The derivation of the term fourth estate…

There really is no other way . . . as long as Capitalism rules.
The only thing that will create meaningful change at this point, is revolution. Worldwide. And like Caitlyn Johnstone says, the revolution starts with us, inside. Discussion of the class war alone is not enough: people need to understand that capitalism destroys everything that…[Read more]
we all scream for hammer cream.
I want to know how the police got there so fast as to actually witness the hammering in person? I mean, how long does a hammering usually last? It can’t be as long as it takes to respond to the average 911 call.
Damn, you learn something new every day (primarily the level of depravity that the religious mind will sink to, in order to avoid the truth).
