Shoulda Snapped Sooner

Talk to anyone who has “lost it“. If your conversation is not taking place in a prison visiting room you will likely hear the guilty party exclaim that they actually feel much better for having purposely jumped into their deep end. To a person, however, they also muse why it took so long to recognize […]

How Propaganda Works by an Anonymous California Reporter

Inconvenience as a Weapon

Impatience runs oh, so very deep through the heart of modern human genes. And unfortunately, that incredibly presumptive evolutionary state influences each and every position we ponder. Tomorrow’s bear or bullish stock market and all things folks consider valuable are ebbing and flowing at it’s wimbly whim. Good lives are brutally and quietly extinguished through […]

What If There Were NO Problems?

The Status Quo must be maintained.   I am not doing my part.   Are you?   Thank you, friend.   Barry out.

It’s Time To Suspend Our Suspension of Disbelief

Our skepticism muscles are atrophied. That’s not good because right now there’s some heavy belief lifting required in the world. Today the notion is widely accepted that injecting too much reality into life impedes enjoyment of it by tossing a cold pail of “get real” on our ability to: lose our minds in dramatic moving […]

If Potatoes Were Money The World Wouldn’t Be So Fried

A Billion Spuds Makes a Big, STUPID Pile You and I are infected with something nasty. The dis-ease plaguing us is necessarily attached to our Dude Not Aware by evolution and like the ripe handcuffed carcass of a close friend, we drag it along while trying hard to stay just one tiny step ahead of […]
