Let's hear it.
Crush my heart.
Ignite this flame.
I'll pretend it's all the same.
My inner nutbag has been unleashed today. After all this time playing it all cool around my ex-sweetie (who I am now trying to encourage a relationship out of) I… Read full post »
A poem about a woman, how original of me:
I just can't stand the way it's gotta be.
We need to break down these walls that keep you away from me.
I'm never fulfilled inside as we part ways.
Doubtful you feel the same.
These lonely days are making me sour once again.
A pill poisoning… Read full post »
With no social life to speak of I end up once again here on Open Salon doing another blog post for no real reason in particular.
I have managed to get a job, which I actually enjoy doing. It's working at a UPS Store franchise and the reality of the job… Read full post »
Being poor is like a game of poker where if you lose, the other players get to fuck you. And if you win, the dealer fucks you.… Read full post »
I have heard people going on about how it's so awful to delete stuff off a blog or Facebook page and I am totally confused by the notion.
I'm quite fond of it. None of you gave a rat's ass about some post so I deleted it. A firestorm started… Read full post »
April 20th, 2011, marks the one year anniversary of the
Deepwater Horizon disaster.
I mark the BP Spill as a point in time which it became even more clear to me that the United States government is invested in protecting corporations and industry over protecting its citizens from… Read full post »
Jeffrey Sachs has posted an excellent piece on The Huffington Post regarding the only sane budget proposal floating around Washington D.C.
Just when it seemed that all of Washington had lost its values and its connection with the American people, a bolt of hope ha… Read full post »
Now that the budget cuts have been released for public viewing I am reminded that we have a Democratic president who enjoys passing Republican policies.
This budget as it stands now is the gutting of America and the road to ruin.
Slashing every domestic program in sight… Read full post »
Just before the midnight deadline Congress has passed a temporary budget deal that will prevent the furlough of thousands of workers and ensure that U.S. combat troops do not go unpaid. Reportedly this budget contains $39 billion in cuts and the numerous policy riders proposed b/… Read full post »
Fox News has the top 12 most-watched shows so far this year.
Which is perhaps not totally surprising since this marks the network's ninth straight year as the number one channel in cable.
That is not to say it's all rainbows and… Read full post »
(WATCH VIDEO: Crooks & Liars "Glenn Beck 'You're Going To Have To Shoot Them'")
I see Glenn Beck as actually dangerous, and not just abrasive and dishonest like other right-wing media pundits.
I first became mildly aware of Beck when he was scathing… Read full post »
A child and a federal judge have been killed along with others. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is in critical condition as of now. My heart goes out to all of those… Read full post »
I will come over to the notion that President Obama is the best thing since sliced bread when I see him put down the hammer on big business and all these bad practices. Obama has thus far favored too moderate a position when it comes to dealing the aspects of… Read full post »
The price tag is too high in my estimation. Perhaps I'm mistaken but the way I read this we get to decide if we want increased deficit into eternity with soon-to-be permanent tax cuts for the top 2% (if things follow the course I see) or if we want to… Read full post »
I'm the one who should have cancer, not my dad.
Nobody is going to Romeo and Juliet over my death. All my loves are gone from my life forever. No children will face uncertainly at my passing, I never knocked up any of the women I… Read full post »
There is always a figure that will stand up for evil, lies, Antisemitism and violence. There is never any lack of men and women who will sell their souls for attention, power, fame and money.
The official statement is that this was not a missile.
Do they think we are stupid? Wait, I know the answer to that...
U.S. Governor's Races
In California Jerry Brown has defeated Meg Whitman and in the Senate race Carly Fiorina has lost to Barbara Boxer but refuses to concede at this time.

In Nevada Harry Reid has defeated… Read full post »
Meg Whitman showed a clear disconnect with California voters when refusing Jerry Brown's offer of taking down all but the two positive ads from both candidates. People in this state are not looking for the best smear agent, we are looking for the person best qualified for the job/… Read full post »

We might have our priorities all backwards in this country.
Education is important, no doubt. But more and more the reality is looking like education doesn't help anyone get a job.
Job training and job skills seem more important than any amount of education.… Read full post »
