I met a traveller from an antique land...

Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone 
Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand, 
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown, 
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, 
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read 
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, 
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed; 
And on the pedestal, these words appear: 
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings; 
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair! 
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay 
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare 
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

--Percy Bysshe Shelley (1818)

This, too, shall pass. The bigglier they are...

My favorite Phillip K. Dick quote is this:

"Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away."

We live in a culture of spin, truthiness, alternate facts, Facebook likes, YouTube likes, Twitter likes, website hits, fake news, Russian bot farms, Russian troll farms... What can you really believe about anything?

Well, just look around at the physical world around you. Look at what's happening in your neighborhood. Meet and talk to your neighbors. Ask them what's going on in their lives. Listen to them. Share with them your own feelings about their concerns.

Because there's the world online and the world on TV and the REAL world that we actually live in.

Name a song with "toilet" in the title.

Fox News had Jones ahead by 10 points the day before the election.

In case any of you were still unclear about how full of shit they are.

Well, it was nice while it lasted.

This is my favorite picture of Donald Trump.

Because you, me, and everyone else in this nation are the baby in this photo.

Hall & Oates - She's Gone

How come I'm just now finding out about this? The song is a classic, but the video they did for it may be the greatest music video ever made.

Jesus' brother James on "thoughts and prayers".

James 2: 14-17--

14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?
15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food,
16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?
17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

Have any of these "Christian" assholes ever even READ this book? There's a bunch of stuff like that in there.

This is going to take a while. It SHOULD take a while.

I wish everyone would calm down. Celebrate, be happy. But don't get impatient, whatever you do.

Up until this morning, I was absolutely skeptical that anything would ever come of this. We've all had our hopes crushed so many times over so many years.

But when I read that Manafort was formally named, and then I read the indictment in full, and then out of nowhere, Manafort's helper was revealed to have made a plea arrangement weeks ago, it dawned on me that Mueller's team is not only dead serious about this, but they are only asking questions to the indicted that they absolutely already know all of the answers to. There will BE no fuckups in the case they are putting together.

All of this legal work takes time. Be patient with that. Let them do their jobs. I am confident that Mueller's team knows what they are doing.
