A KINKY TRIBUTE TO GEORGE CARLIN

This is a little tribute to George Carlin. My book is dedicated to him. I thought of this while listening to one of his old routines. As “human beans” we have to laugh at and accept our weird human condition.



With this in mind, I offer a PARAMIOGRAPHY ON A SMELLY THEME



A fart in time saves nine.



You can lead a hog to a pigsty but you can’t make him stink.



One good fart deserves another. (Familiar Bulgarian saying)



Let the smeller beware.… Continue

LET'S CLEAR UP SOME OF THE MYTHS ABOUT MARIJUANA

The following is a rebuttal of a website that was supposed to confirm that marijuana causes physical withdrawal symptoms like booze or heroin. Click on the link below for the article.





“Marijuana—Addiction and Other Issues.”



Overall I thought the University of Wisconsin -- Madison piece was naïve, scientifically invalid and sophomoric. The article… Continue

RELIGION SCREWS UP MORALITY

Ever since early Catholic education, I’ve rejected the concept of original sin. Now, in my ‘60s, I’m irate about it. Please Father, gimme a break; I had nothing to do with Adam and Eve. I can’t even figure out why God had to appease himself by sacrificing his only begotten son. What the heck is God pissed off at me for?



The concept of sin and guilt has ruined a lot of lives. To religious people, sacrifice is good and pleasure is bad—particularly sexual pleasure. Why else would all… Continue

SOYLENT GREEN WAS THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER

Soylent Green is more important to us than the King James Bible. Instead of warning us of an imaginary hell, it alerts us of the real possibility of the horror of overpopulation.



The movie was way ahead of its time and a stern forewarning of what will happen if we continue reproducing like rodents.



Here's The Scene.



Imagine the sense of loss as Edward G. Robinson watched the… Continue

ON HUMAN EXTINCTION

Chris Hedges' "We are breeding ourselves to extinction"



http://informationclearinghouse.info:80/article22181.htm



is one of the most insightful, on-the-money, spot-on essays I've ever read. I'm posting it here because I predicted the same events over five years ago when I started writing Mirror Reversal. It's heartbreaking that I could be so right, and yet alone, so helpless.



Professor Cynthia Whipple tells her boyfriend,



““Once…

THE MEANING OF LIFE WITHOUT GOD

If humanity is going to continue to evolve, the traditional orthodox religions must be dismissed as indefensible mythology. Religion has kept us in the Dark Ages long enough. The time has finally come because nature has been strained to her limits. She is at carrying capacity right now. Religions continue to encourage runaway population growth at exponential rates such that millions die of starvation and preventable diseases every year. War is no longer a feasible answer to population… Continue

DEFINITIVE PROOF THAT GOD EXISTS

When the octuplets were born, I posted the following excerpt from Mirror Reversal on a right-wing website. I figured they'd enjoy it since the piece supports their believe system. I really just wanted to find out their reactions.



The comments were mixed, mostly from "You gotta be kiddin', and "Are you crazy?" to "I like your reasoning," and "Yes, babies are miracles, God bless 'em."



Let me make it clear, I'm not a sexest. Wayne is a composite of the kids I… Continue

MAKING PROGRESS WITH LEGALIZATION

I just received this from a friend.



Hey Rich,



If you have a few seconds, check out this interesting group of cops and judges who are pushing for drug legalization as a solution to America's economic situation! They're using December's 75th anniversary of the end of alcohol prohibition as way to get the attention of the incoming Obama administration and the new Congress.



Interesting stuff. Anyway, the cops' site is at… Continue
