William Blake's "The Four Zoas"

From William Blake's (1757-1827) unfinished The Four Zoas:

. . . First the Architect divine his plan

Unfolds, The wondrous scaffold reard all round the infinite

Quadrangular the building rose the heavens squared by a line . . .

A wondrous golden Building; many a window many a door

And many a division let in & out into the vast unknown

Cubed in window square immoveable, within its walls & cielings

The heavens were closed and spirits mournd their bondage night and day

Dick Tater

So who's gross?

Dick Tater
a poem by leighmf

No brain, but starch, inside his head,
the autopsy said later.
"Organ-confused," a classic case.
His toe was tagged Dick Tater.

No one missed him not one bit,
for all the years of trouble!
To keep the weeds off of his grave
they smothered it in rubble.

It's not better to forget,
but 'tis holy to forgive.
Else, you leave a gaping hole
where Dick Tater can live.


Propaganda Advertizing On Your Website

How does it happen that the ad banners on your website regularly pop up this ad,

and is there anything your organization can do about it?

Nothing new I guess. If someone pays alot for "Free Speech" ...they win.


At Night

If John McCain and Linsey Graham are the U.S. money and arms brokers who helped the "Islamic" State get its start, I wonder if thoughts of James Foley's death keep them up at night.

The 99% does NOT hate partisan politics, Democrats just don’t want to criticize republican policies for the rich.

Either get off your ass and make some noise for the benefit of the People or get out of Washington. And that goes for you the abundantly feckless Tammy Baldwin, and Mark Pokedcan. (the same goes for Ron Kind and Gwen Moore).

Palm Oil: Tropical deforestation responsible for now up to 10% of heat-trapping emissions and growing.

Palm Oil plantations – including at least one owned by an American Company - are stripping the planet of its last remaining tropical rain forests and we are paying a very dear and perhaps final price for it.

Don’t buy Girl Scout Cookies, tell McDonald’s to get fucked, do whatever you can, but for the love of dog STOP PALM OIL before we are all dead!

Here's a quote from Pat Robertson's 700 Club today, 8/20/2014:

"What's worse than a long wait at the doctor's office? How about there not being a doctor's office in the first place? Hear why many doctors are shutting their doors . . .
