orange times


 In this age of invasive media with many entries into ones psych, it was just a matter of when.........our symptoms are on display and we have a poster boy of the orange race leading this nation of people. I diagnose him (I admit I am not qualified) as having an extreme anti social personality disorder dripping in narcissism. (is that where the orange comes from ???). Two of the defining characteristic are obvious and have been mastered. The mimicking of behavior has been achieved. And don't forget, charming is a verb. It certainly helped launch his journey to be born on third base and thought he'd hit a triple. And a totally absent emotion of empathy makes it easier to cheat, lie and steal as needed to advance. I am certain there is no repair or drug to treat this personality and the only strategy if you encounter such a person is to immediately make sure they are not in your life. Even persons on the lower end of the continuum can make your life a living hell. WTF!!!!
We are in for some bad shit ! As the most pessimistic person I know..me, I was lacking much hope and yet longed for it. Now I am working my way through the grief process and trying to find the way forward. When this personality inserts themselves into your life and has the power to make your life a living hell and there is no way to rid them what is the plan.?????  So I have two books coming....the mask of sanity and another more recent book updating his work from 1941.

11/30/2016 November is almost over.....the normalizing of this fascist leap on steroids continues..... I am trying to find my way. Still haven't started smoking cigarettes but it crosses my mind. As his ilk continues to emerge from the swamp to assist in the administration of this horror my pessimistic first place standing increases.

12-4-16 Had a fine time with my peeps at the dems annual holidaze party last evening. Thank you Alex for sharing a rant on the horrific place we find ourselves (as we set up before the event) and thank you Bobby for shutting me up and giving me hope as you shared a glimpse of the work you are doing. It was so great to eat, drink, and be merry with the best. Oh and thank you Trouble for sharing the work load and greeting all arrivals. I know everyone is processing what to do and it's good to have friends to do this with. I do hear the message that it's time to move forward and I get that. I still haven't figured out what that means for me. I'm still suffering from TAD (trump anxiety disorder) and
continue to have waves of despair, forgetfulness and disorganization. The list of greedy selfish swamp brew who appear to be lining up to “lead” our nation and interact with the rest of the world, will, in my opinion, be a horrific legacy. So I will continue to try to find my path and will protect others from my pessimism with the best humor I can come up with (it will have darkness lurking, of course) and keeping my mouth shut.   well other than posts under logo orange times from time to time....

oh and it's Frances to blame for this being available if anyone stumbles onto it......

Trump doesn't like this picture

→This Russian puppet wants the media to publish only 'flattering pictures'. If that's what he really want, he needs to resign before he is sworn in and move to some other country. This is America, and we have freedom of expression. He and his followers aren't going to take that away.

happy playing with fire in July day


 this was a bad year! I have survived bad years in the past. The year the guy across the street had mortars mounted on tables at the edge of his property aimed at the sky over my house comes to mind. Two big bags of garbage collected on my quarter acre. Can used fire toys be recycled? This year the foreplay started a few days before the ultimate orgasm. I am speaking from the morning after. All day yesterday there was noise near and far. I don't get the loud, startling, ear injuring boom that seems so popular.... my reaction,when I'm being as nice as I can, is to yell “WHY !!!???”
I spent the days before getting my quarter acre as wet as I could. And I do realize it won't matter if someone nearby lights peckerheadville on fire. I guess from previous garbage gathering on my lot, I figure if something landed with any heat left there would be no fuel. This year was a war zone. I was miserable. My cats were miserable. The two old residents, normally living outside, came in and would not leave. My feral family disappeared. They did not come in for their normal evening feeding. I wonder how this horribly offensive, invasive behavior is allowed and encouraged. It is so rude and that's the nicest thing I can think of to say.
And I heard on the news that veterans, who were subjected to the horrors of actual war zones, are now subjected to the pretend war zones if they happen live in communities where fire toys are allowed, as those who live where they are banned come to get their rocks off. Why is such behavior allowed and even sold?? It is pathology on steroids. Our symptoms are on display. And then I felt the shame and sorrow for those who have hosted our war zones. They don't get to get up to a quiet predictable day after surviving the fake war zone brought to their neighborhood. I thought of river, who blogged from Iraq after our illegal, immoral attack, invasion and occupation of her home in 2003. Her last post in 2013 speaks eloquently to how it is to host a war. https://riverbendblog.blogspot.com/
I think it's time to look ourselves in the mirror.
As far as play with fire day, I think it would be good to change the name to interdependence day and recognize our common connections. If folks felt the need to play with fire on that day, I would be ok with public displays put on by licensed pyrotechnicians. Those of us who do not enjoy this could hide out somewhere. Sorry for those who live near a chosen public site. Wish we could stop this rude offensive behavior.

Ten years later...........


I think this story by Chris Hedges speaks to the profound sadness about where we find ourselves today.  The war criminals who orchestrated the immoral, illegal war continue to live the high lives.  Dead eye dark side dick got the best healthcare money can buy and a heart.  Their children are seen bringing commentary, as if they have qualifications.  The price we are going to end up paying in blood and treasure is on our descendants credit cards.  And the people who got to host this horror are paying and will pay forever.  Depleted (not) uranium = genocide.
I used to follow River on her blog, Baghdad Burning, to hear what was happening in her country.  The last post was October 22, 2007 as she started her life as a refugee in Syria.  I wonder where she is now.

and this interview with Raed Jarrar by Thom Hartmann 

One of First Iraq Veterans to Publicly Oppose War Will Die for Our Sins
Monday, 11 March 2013 09:44By Chris HedgesTruthdig | Op-Ed
........I think this Young will die for our sins. He will die for a war that should never have been fought. He will die for the lies of politicians. He will die for war profiteers. He will die for thecareers of generals. He will die forey a cheerleader press. He will die for a complacent public that made war possible. He bore all this upon his body. He was crucified. And there are hundreds of thousands of other crucified bodies like his in Baghdad and Kandahar and Peshawar and Walter Reed medical center. Mangled bodies and corpses, broken dreams, unending grief, betrayal, corporate profit, these are the true products of war. Tomas Young is the face of war they do not want you to see.
