Well Facebook is funny…one moment it restores my faith in humanity and the next….hhhh so a “friend” of mine posted something to the effect that “the press didn’t cover The Great Pacific Garbage Patch” issue and I commented that both “mainstream” and “alternative” press have been covering it for more than a decade. He said he Googled it and found nothing but blogs and alternative media and some scientific and official studies. So I posted articles on the thread as old as 2002 and as new as a week ago from sources such as: CNN, NBC, Discover, OC Register, LA … Continue reading Why doesn’t “the Mainstream Media” ever talk about____? They did and that’s how you know about it.
I like to remind Mormons, Muslims, and Christians that they basically copied their religions from the Jews and Zoroastrians who copied a lot from the Hindus. Jews were worshipping an evil god long before Mohammed invented Islam. Zoroastrianism invented the concept of a universe ruled by one “good” god (monotheism) and one “evil” devil (dualism). This was incorporated into Judaism and thus into Christianity which is a rebellious offshoot of Judaism and therefore of Zoroastrianism as well. Later these concepts were incorporated into Islam which is based on Judaism and Christianity (and Zoroastrianism) mixed with Arabic customs and culture. Still … Continue reading Jews and Christians and Zoroastrians were worshiping an evil monotheistic god long before Mohammed invented Islam (How did you think he came up with the idea?)
Music is art, entertainment, catharsis, and communication. It is not a sport or a competition. An amateur musician who can make people feel something, think about something, enjoy themselves, get excited, get intrigued, get sad, get angry, feel romantic, question their assumptions, relax, wake up, feel encouraged, feel mesmerized, ask “What the fuck was that sound?”…is a more successful musician than a professional who can only do a second-rate replication of the innovators and communicators and sonic and cultural rebels who came before them. Continue reading Music is art, entertainment, catharsis, and communication. It is not a sport or a competition.
Anarchism is adolescent intellectual masturbation…silly like libertarianism, conservatism, communism, nationalism, isolationism…all bullshit. Global democracy tempered by strictly enforced human rights laws and ecological/economic law enforcement and a mixed economy with elements of socialism and capitalism mixed in a way that is both practical and ethical is the way to go…I suppose when I write such things I am supposed to be polite and preface by saying something like “This is just my opinion…”, but isn’t it pretty obvious that it is my opinion. Otherwise why would I say it in the first place? Continue reading Anarchism is adolescent intellectual masturbation…silly like libertarianism, conservatism, communism, nationalism, isolationism…
Apparently HAARP is being shutdown. I hope it is because enough has been learned about how to deal with the ionosphere in order to prolong the life of satellites and improve satelitte communication and not just another science related budget cut. I fully support the research that was being done by HAARP in Alaska because I actually bothered to learn about it instead of the the stupid conspiracy theories invented by people who never bothered to read HAARP’s website, press releases, or to go on a public tour of the supposedly “secretive” facility. (There was never anything secretive about HAARP). … Continue reading HAARP is being shutdown but the myths, misinformation, and unfounded conspiracy theories continue
I wish we could see hundreds of thousands of ordinary people and world-famous artists and politicians come together as they did against Apartheid in the 80s, to honor all of those being persecuted around the world under theocratic blasphemy laws and/or those born destined to live and die in North Korean prison camps to be punished for the supposed sins of their grandmothers and grandfathers. Continue reading We need a popular international movement for the liberation of apostates in the Islamic world and for the enslaved people of North Korea
I suspected that Fred Phelps may have changed his mind about hating LGBT people when I heard he was ex-communicated. Now members of his family are coming forward saying this is in fact what occurred. I actually, well maybe I shouldn’t speculate about this, but I will anyway….I think most homophobes are people who don’t really think too deeply about the issue and are just sort of following the crowd, but when someone dedicates his or her life almost entirely to hating homosexuality there has to be an underlying issue. I think recent history clearly demonstrates that many obsessed homophobes … Continue reading Fred Phelps may not have died hating “gays”, but why did he feel the need to hate them in the first place?
