I try not to end anything with 'you c*nt'...

While I am not always successful at it, I try to focus my comments towards ideas and opinions rather than the people expressing those ideas and opinions...

The status quo seemed to be meek quiet mild mannered journals that quietly observed the News and Politics section.

I tried to emphasize something more creative or spontaneous and was subsequently treated like a drug addict or a criminal.

So. Been banned two or three times. Don’t really care. If you missed it. I think it’s a very serious problem throughout the internet and it’s motivated by an advocacy for sectarian extremism.

But whatever.

I’m an idiot who got f*cked up by 9/11.

I don’t hate your posts and don’t understand why they infuriate people so much. I have no problem dealing with a politics as an unknown or using a Socratic method. I think they want to label you because identity is a self determination in their eyes.

Creature over creator stuff. The human spirit.

That commercial with a female engineer walking around a job site saying “better” “faster” “stronger”.

I think that the level of personal hatred and intolerance has increased significantly in recent years. It's all about hanging negative labels and marginalizing those with whom one disagrees.

Reminds me of this:

I think it’s a growing favor of Islam and it’s influence and advocating a dualism and sectarianism.

Somehow and remarkably after 9/11.

Well back to your normally scheduled programming...

I’m drinking gin fixes after a nap. Will take my medicine and hopefully the world will be less yelly tomorrow.

My comment was more toward Bored, Puller. He seemed concerned about the quality of Journals in recent times. I do tend to believe that Journals should be primarily for the benefit of the Journaled, rather than having some sort of standard for content quality. If people find it interesting, that's great. If they don't, they can ignore.


Not so much the quality of the journals but the quality of the spamming alters.

Talking to Puller.

Want to clarify that I think some of the political turmoil of the Middle East has begun to influence American politics post 9/11.

Post Gulf War probably.

Theologically I disagree with Islam but there is more cultural context than the teachings of Islam alone.

I’m not saying that Islam is the bad actor but that the extremism that has happened in the Middle East has begun to creep into our fringe politics. Possibly it’s even just at the root of us claiming to be a religious nation. Maybe there’s something to our lack of adherence to a separation of church and state.

But 9/11 definitely brought political acts of violence into the public eye and caused people to reckon with that possibility.

Thank you, adelfos. I appreciate you taking time out to write that.

For people of your time amaq 9/11 was a huge moment in let's call it violent political anarchy

What age were you?

For me 1967 saw the 6 Day War, 1968, the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, I was 10 then. The Kent State shootings and the Anti Vietnam counter culture went full on. Student riots in Paris 1969 saw British Troops on the streets in Belfast.

There was shift in the early Seventies with Black September and Baader-Meinhof Then we got Thatcher and hunger strikers and Carter/Reagan and the Islamic revolution. The train keeps running it's just a matter of what station you get on at.

I was about thirteen or fourteen.

Well. Kelce and Hill are just crazy good. And Mahomes is unsackable.

Off to work.

The Knicks have the best defense in the league by the way.

Thanks Thibodeau.

Buffalo was a bit disappointment yesterday.

I expect better next season

At some point, Josh Allen will have to run less to prolong his career

I think they shut down Diggs. And I think Allen zones in by throwing to Diggs and it opens up the field. So he didn’t have Diggs and never found a rhythm. But I guess Beasley had a broken fibula. He was a big target all season too.

Did my taxes.

The defensive coverage was really good on all receivers- - Allen was in a difficult situation.
30 days ago - Wednesday 1/27/21 - 3:30:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
Did my taxes too. Last year I paid $42. This year I'm getting back $262.

I paid HR Block 60 dollars for letting me use their online program.

But I think I’m getting a little under 400 dollars back.

So I guess I “did” my taxes.

It also snowed again.

And all I had to do was push the accelerator. Well. I had to brush it off.

But then I had to go to the apartment complex my aunt and uncle moved into and brush off their car and move it to the middle of the parking lot.

And my aunt and grandmother could use a little shoveling done there. And they need small pieces of wood brought up to start the wood stove.

And I have to drop off recycling.

Keeps my mind off work.

Forgot recycling from my apartment.

Slipped and fell flat on my back carrying garbage to the curb.

Did I ever tell you guys that during the week I spent in the MHU I played the classical minuets that I had taught myself on the piano there?
29 days ago - Thursday 1/28/21 - 12:56:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don’t remember what number they were but I learned...

One by Mozart when he was like fifteen.

One by Beethoven

One by Dvorak

And I learned something by Bach. I think I had a minuet by Bach and then started trying to learn a fugue. I think the fugue was my downfall.

The lady who gave me my pills told me that it was very nice of me to play Bach at the MHU. Just wasn’t nice to blame my father for my childhood friend overdosing on heroin.

It’s not snowing.
