Bush 2

Bush 2

I think that my last post was a little harsh and would like to explain and expand on it.

I love my sister, Kate, and even though she lives in Texas and supports Bush, I would never turn my back on her or her family. I Support my land lord --another Bush fellow, and someone I value as a friend.

I talk to both of them and listen to what they say.

There are always two sides to things. In a perfect world, I'd listen to the argument, find things in common, make sure my values were defended, and meet as half way as possible in something called compromise. I would not be happy, but could live with the result.

It's like brunch -- when it works right.

What has happened in the last 8 years:

I know the decisions have been made before my opinion is asked.
No attempt is made to cushion the blow -- it's like I'm thought too stupid to notice, or too insignificant to bother coming up with an excuse.
It's the big lie approach that I learned in school -- Goebbels et al.
It's divisive on purpose -- they are trying to piss me off.

When dealing with people, things are not absolute or perfect. As Americans we have always had the nack of taking strange poles of thought and bringing them to the mainstream -- defanging them. We bring everything back to the middle -- it has always been our strength, for good or bad.

So, fuck Bush, fuck Rove -- let's turn them over to the world court for a show trial and appropiate punishment, then get back to being Americans again.

Explain nothing, except your self

Explain nothing, except your self. I feel like the last of a tribe struggling to keep my identity a secret from the mob, one step ahead at best, reduced to hiding in bushes from the monsters waiting to snag and devour me. Sort of a delicacy and a poison – a non-specific drug that exudes memes instead of hormones and physical highs – subconscious, primitive analog get-off-ness apparently responsible for some weird competitive advantage consolidating over geological time out of our mixed genus ancestors, or maybe Texans. At the same time, I feel like spasmed dots from gods own printer cartridge ejaculated onto the canvas of a great emptiness, the thought of which is expressed in the three-dimensional representation of the position I’m braced into while doing the splatting -- all hologram like but only juicier and used -- like an in and out burger wrapper chewed on by a trashcan opossum. Or better, a goat in a pickup heading for a quinceanera debating Schrödinger with the

Free Willy

“…Some say it's just a part of it We've got to fulfill the book.” B. Marley Before I completely run away from the point, the subject of this essay is free will, or, more accurately, the illusion of free will. It will be interesting to see if free will even comes up laterally over the next few hundred words now that I’ve set it up as a specific goal.  The imp of the perverse makes it a sure thing that I won’t – but that surety might also double back and force  me to stay on point. There are no dogs to pick  in this fight and it’s not a fight,  and if I’m right, none of this is anything but documentation for a litigious god that will never see it. Like quantum mechanics, life is about either time or place, never both, and how we choose to pretty up our choices is neither the point, or even a choice – it’s after the fact punctuation we use to justify and make sense of our ontological messiness.  (Science has proven that we decide things with our body before the brain
