The problem with your worldview

Monday, 28 November 2016

I’ve stumbled around this truth for decades. Suggesting that you should consider what a world of your literal peers would be like, etc. Never hitting the bullseye.

The problem with your worldview is it assumes that other persons will be different from you. It requires that other persons will be different from you.

No? You don’t see the problem.

I don’t want to be a janitor, but I wouldn’t mind so much. There are no lousy jobs, only lousy persons. And I don’t piss on the seat or leave a clogged toilet for someone else to handle.

I don’t want to be a satellite engineer but it’s not beyond me and I wouldn’t mind so much I guess. I don’t want to work a deli counter but I’ve done it and it’s not that much worse than a 150 ticket deep bug queue with customers getting antsy and angry. I don’t want to fix cars or teevees or toasters but working with your hands is pretty nice and engaging after all and who doesn’t love a good mystery? I don’t want to be a hunter or a farmer but I do love seeing living things and the world around them so I could learn to love it. I don’t want to be a gaffer but I could get used to being the one the director isn’t mad at every day.

You see where this is going.

The problem with your worldview is not primarily that it requires guns and prisons to achieve but that it requires someone else to do the things you wouldn’t, couldn’t.

I don’t hate anyone really. I do, however, wish with everything there is, that each of you could have the world you think you want but every one of the 7 billion inhabitants would be you. Then, I think, you wouldn’t have any rebuttals, just apologies and a perspective that might be interesting and helpful to anyone besides yourself.

Tuck-ins with Morty

12 YEAR-OLD BOY

(Getting tucked in on a hot and humid Florida Keys’ night.)

It’s too human.

DAD

Humid?

12 YEAR-OLD BOY

Human.

DAD

Well, believe it or not I tried quite hard to change into an insect when I was younger but I couldn’t pull it off.

12 YEAR-OLD BOY

That’s too bad.

DAD

I’ll try harder.

12 YEAR-OLD BOY

Yay.

DAD

Maybe you shouldn’t be too happy. Some insects eat their babies.

12 YEAR-OLD BOY

That would be fun! I want to see the inside of your digestive system.

Regarding Michelle Obama’s beautiful speech no one can shut up about

Tuesday, 26 July 2016

Her husband killed 80 innocent persons going about daily life, 35 of them were children, exactly one week ago. Children. So many children killed by this man and this neoconservative bullshit painted Blue.

I do not give a fuck what Michelle Fucking Obama says about anything until they both apologize and end the wars. And then I hate them both a tiny amount less if they never show their murderous faces in public again.

Nice attack: At least 80 dead, including 10 children, as lorry rams into crowd

But that’s none of my business.

You know what else killed 80 innocent persons just going about their day this week, including quite a few more than 10 children? A single one of president Obama’s thousands of drone strikes. Another at a funeral in Pakistan killed 10 kids coincidentally.

Chris Pine, who plays Kirk, had this to say: “I was there for the bit with his like nine bodyguards and three limos. It was really intense. I had no idea who he was. Not a clue. But he was obviously very important.”

He never choked Olivia Munn to orgasm so how important could he be?

Your courage and self-confidence

Saturday, 21 May 2016

If your courage and self-confidence are grounded in someone else’s love, support, and nurturing, you have no courage or self-confidence, just gaping sores covered with extremely sticky Band-Aid®s which circumstances, or someone else, could rip away at any moment.

Re: The Killing

Sunday, 15 May 2016

That is not Seattle rain. Seattle rain is like a chronic illness.

It is not direct. It does not pour.

It’s slow. It’s weak. It’s an insidious misting. Entering your pores through osmosis, not force. It’s insistent, yes, but it’s strong perhaps once a year. Perhaps. The other 282 days it’s a hazy disease. A lack of light. A voice in your head so quiet you don’t hear what it says until the shotgun is in your lap and understanding is your crown.

That said, I have a call out. Brent Sexton was solid in Justified. He’s solid gold in The Killing.

To everyone crapping on Axl today

Tuesday, 19 April 2016

You know, I realize that Guns N’ Roses, and Axl, might be hard to take seriously and they had only 3½ albums that were worth a goddamn and that includes the good stuff off The Spaghetti Incident? and both Use Your Illusion platters and that it was all 25 fucking years ago.

…but AC/DC, in the 43 years it’s continually existed, has only 2½ albums worthanywhile, now comprises exactly one original member, and its most recent music to be even remotely taken seriously was more than 30 fucking years ago… and, and!, 1¼ of those 2½ albums were largely the responsibility of a man who has been dead for 36 years.

Planning

Thursday, 3 December 2015

Something must be done! We must act now! If we do not change, the damage will continue!

These are not plans. These are nothing. Worse than nothing, chanting them, forwarding them, sharing them makes you think you are doing something. Makes you think you are righteous. Makes you think you are smart and caring; smarter and more caring than anyone who disagrees with… well, with the nothingness to which you adhere.


Planning, a parable

Child is drowning. Help! Help! cry the people of Cityton. Do something!

What? says the hero.

Do something! Anything! Something must be done!

Well, reasons the hero, the water is obviously killing the child. I shall drain the ocean.

And that is how the population of Cityton shrank by one and the once scenic coastline was ruined forever.


Something must be done is not a plan and action taken out of panic, fear, and prejudice will always backfire. I do not think you care though. You just want to go back to feeling that you are more caring and smarter than the neighbor who did not disagree there was a problem but attempted to approach it rationally and realistically.

A friend in need

Wednesday, 2 December 2015

Someone I was very close with in high school recently had her ex say some super shitty stuff to her. She posted on FB for some positive feedback because it was the kind of thing that is hard to shake off from someone who shared your bed and commingled DNA.

Though we had something of a falling out once that hurt me much more than she would believe, I still remember the other parts. I came to her aid with, I think, the right words. Damning the speaker without any attack just on the fact that one must be ugly, torn, inside to say something like that. Other friends thought I was on the right track, likes and all, and there were many there to ameliorate in similar ways.

Thing is… I said entirely similar super shitty stuff about one of her current and continuing—unlike me—best friends here on these pages. Namely, I called the woman a whore.

I am the same person who said both things. Less angry, but nothing essentially different and if I have not pulled the piece, I have not recanted and stand by what I said, such as it is; was.

Bothered me. Bothered me quite a lot. Lasted all of two minutes.

Whatever else I am, harsh, nasty, angry. I never once encouraged, advised, or tried to cajole any friend, male or female, to duplicity. To cheat. To lie. To revenge. I hate it as much in the men I would be friends to as I do in the women who have shared my bed. Never.

Maybe there was some ugliness in me that chose that word when I used it. My moral compass continues to point to it being in the right territory no matter what kicked it out of me.

The Great Lengths of HOPE, take 57,631

Thursday, 5 November 2015

These “Drone Papers” show, among other disclosures, that the U.S. government has been lying about the number of civilian deaths caused by drone strikes in Afghanistan,Yemen, and Somalia. For every targeted individual assassinated, another five or six non-targeted individuals are killed – giving the lie to the Obama administration’s long-standing claims of careful, precision killing of specific targets in order to avoid killing civilians.
