Atheist Nirvana in Fort Worth

Today, wifey and I spent exactly $ 00.00 for free Saturday admission to the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth. The building itself on the outside resembled a vaulted German WWII bunker lining the beaches of Normandy. Inside, the open stretched gallery layout provided ample room and variability in illumination and display. Later this year, the main building turns 50. Designed by Louis Kahn, it was the last major project to finish before his passing. And no, he was not the brother of renown Detroit-based architect Albert Kahn. I’ve been to some of the top notch art museums in maybe 20...

Oh, The HYPOCRISY . . .

On Nov. 30, a man named Marcus Lamb died of Covid-19 in a sleepy suburb of Fort Worth. He is a distant relative of mine, though I have never met him. He is, however, related to family members I truly, deeply love. My sincere sympathy for loss goes out to my affected family members. I know they grieve, thus in my heart I grieve for their sense of loss. The story of why I write this is a long and complicated one. I do not doubt Mr. Lamb was a sincerely well-meaning person, whose love of his specific deities and attached...

Diary Entry 2111.28

Afterlife  ||  Thankful for Whom? Afterlife Having recently viewed the latest installment of the Ghostbusters franchise — and one which is an actual sequel to the two flicks from the 80s — I have posted my review. If you care to see that review, it can be found at: https://pearsonally.com/reviews/#mov You will also find other reviews.  Feel free to comment, agree, disagree on any.  Unfortunately my book reviews are behind, as several titles I’ve consumed have failed to inspire me to cut time to review. Thankful for Whom? America just celebrated another feasting festival known as Thanksgiving, where supposedly the nation...

‘Hillary Clinton Tried to Warn Us – And Paid The Price; Let’s at Least Call Republicans What They Are’

[this post is taken directly from https://www.salon.com/2021/09/22/hillary-clinton-tried-to-warn-us–and-paid-the-price-lets-at-least-call-what-they-are/, used w.o.p., because sometimes others say better all you want to say . . .basically, unfortunately, the entire fuckublican party has – by embracing trumpism and his baggage – become a worldwide embarrassment] Still, America’s political class is unwilling to call the fascist, white supremacist Republicans what they are By Chauncey DeVega Published September 22, 2021 5:50AM (EDT) During a speech in September 2016, Hillary Clinton — then the Democratic presidential nominee — warned the American people and the world of the dangers represented by Donald Trump and his followers. She described the “volatile...

Deplorable America

Let me make it clear here that I am NOT condemning in one broad stroke every Republican or even every single Trump supporter/voter.  ONLY those who participated in the attempted Trump-led insurrection on Jan 6 and those who support — even subsequently — the authoritarian-style coup attempt which (by my prediction) turned deadly over one of the biggest lies in American history, that Trump, who lost the 2020 election by over 7 million votes, actually won. Fuck you, Trump, for all the damage you have done to America and American democracy.  And if you supported the attempted violent insurrection at the...

A Tune For The Holidays, 2020-Style

​”Let Us Grow” (to the tune of “Let It Snow”) Oh, the Covid out there is frightening But the truth within us is enlightening Together we’ve one place to go: Let us glow, let us grow, let us know The tragedy wouldn’t be stoppin’ If it not for the doctors microscopin’ The brights didn’t care about the show, Caring only on stopping the Covid on the go, Now we got a relieving liquid charm, How we need to get a shot in the arm, To get Covid a hurried alarm And reduce its horrid harm So the plague is slowly dying...

‘They Are What They Say They Hate’

He’s a pampered millennial child who can’t handle losing and wants a participation trophy. He’s a coddled, out-of-touch elite who cares more about what his media friends say about...

From the Top

No, Trump supporters, I’m sorry to burst your disinformation bubble, however many of you are still sticking to Trump’s 2 main threads of falsehoods regarding the election and the current Covid-19 pandemic. First, the election.  Where to start? To take just one glaring and anxiety-inducing example: In the middle of last month, Reich-wing blogger Dan Bongino pissed kerosene on the fire of nutjob conspiracy theorists by posting that members of the Democratic Party will attempt a coup on election day in order to instill their chosen nominee in the White House, overriding election results and nullifying the ballots of Republicans.  On...

Trump Goes to Town Hall 0

Trump Goes to Town Hall

The Town Hall hosted by George Stephanopoulos (I always have to copy and paste that name) on Tuesday night will hopefully open eyes for many “undecided” and even Republican voters.  It was both hilarious and terrifying that a sizable percentage of the American public still support someone so obviously ill-equipped, so thin-skinned, so wallowing in self-pity, craving of adulation, and even (as many in the mental health profession have stated) a “clear and present danger” 1 to democracy and this nation. And the Town Hall hopefully illustrated that better, straight from Trump’s own mouth, than we could have otherwise have hoped. ...
