R.I.P. William F. Buckley Jr.

The other side just got less interesting.

That is how I said it to a fellow dem., in the office today, after learning of Buckley's moving on. I actually respected him. Really. The right wing just lost the likely only true well-known intellectual, in it's so-called leadership.

Anyway, he was a gentleman and a thinking man, seemingly, before he was a partisan.

That is a quality that is sorely lacking, in this day and age.

But She Prays to Artemis and Athena. How Could She be so Perfectly Zen?

Yes, I am sure you don't know what or who I am talking about yet. I am talking about Kara Thrace, A.K.A. Starbuck, from the new version of "Battlestar Galactica." To explain further, I am watching again, the movie Razor, which the producers put out for us fanatics,during the long wait between season 3 and season 4.

So My girl Kara is chatting with Kendra Shaw, X.O. (for a time) of Battlestar Pegasus, and they are trading stories and philosphies, after a fashion.

Kara riffs, as follows:

"Fear. Anger. Two sides of the same coin, if you ask me. Ya need to let go of both."

Aww that is quite a Zen-ism for her. Kudos for the insight. That is one if the reasons I love the character. I think of her as my favorite brilliant disaster.

Oh hey season 3 starts next month. About fracking time!

Not a Particularly Mind-Blowing Weird Week.

Was sorta quiet, personally and nationally.

Um . . . . not exactly weird, but sorta typically, there was the dumbassed stunt with John Boehner, at the Podium in the Well of the House Chamber, DECRYING GRANDSTANDING, and moments latter, leading a walk-out of GOP Congress Critters out of the building, to . . .

a pre-set podium for their post walk-out grandstanding.

Now mark me. I am trying to cut back on the snark and cussin' and all that crap.

Good thing too.

Lately it has got to be too easy. Like shooting fish in a barrel.

I am not even going to link a story or vid. And I will not take the easy cheap shot but I will say as follows:

Who do these people think they are fooling?

Pre V-Day Post.

Ok. I broke down and bought myself some Valentine's Day chocolates.

Other wise I am not likely to get any this year. Oh, and I get the cute bear too.

Anyway, I am not going to fuss this year (Trying Not To, at Least!)

Oh. Lastly. If you are lucky enough to have someone to share it with, great. And even if don't I invite you to follow the instruction in that classic CSN song . . . and love the one you're with.

Take care of yourself. Treat yourself good.

Yes, eat the chocolate, even if you got to buy your own!

I Do Not Know About You, But . . . . Humor Over Politics and Social Dysfunction???

I will take humor.

I can talk more about Mittens, who is such a flip-flopping (more-so than Kerry on his worst day), stooge, that he can, out of one side of his mouth, say that the problem with the USA is there is not enough attention being paid to GOD, but also say that the problem with Islamic Radical Terrorists is they consider Democracy a threat to their religious ideology???


Or, I can talk about that dingbat David Shuster, who has been suspended from MSNC following his witless "pimp'n" remark re Chelsea Clinton. (Damnit, how many times do ah gots ta school these wasp posers that if you ain't genuine ghetto, or at least got walkin' papers from real ghetto peeps, that you got no bidnezz actin' ghetto, ya poz'n skank-a-slore?)

Remember Imus, you numbnutz?

I am going to stop there with the alt. commentary and just post the link to the hilarious Conan O'Brien vid.

That was a welcome comedic break from the Mind Blowing Weirdness that passes for life in America, lately.

Oh and . . . TGIF!

Now, that his campaign is on hold, can we put him in the nut house?

I mean Mittens Romney.

I swear, so far the most assinine thing said in this season by a wanna-be has to have been his . . . "Freedom requires religion and religion requires freedom," sthick.

What the EFF does that mean anyway?

It might have been more rational to quote something from those missing gold plates.

Anyway, good bye Mitt, don't let the door hit you on the ass, on your way out.


Not that I think there is a chance of that power mad attention whore going away.

Ooooh. Speaking of attention whores, here is one of my latest Haiku:

Hey, attention whore.

Why waste your time with antics?

you are still tiny.

Now That Wasn't Very Zen

I deleted that crap I posted yesterday. No, I am not indicating that all my posts now have to pass a Zen test. But that one ended badly.

Now as I started off posting a video of Dinesh D'Souza, a bad outcome was basically pre-ordained.

Anyway, here is a Zen moment. As of today, I am writing Haiku, in my quest to get more Zen-ish.

Here goes:

Silly computer.

You think you know everything.

Nonsense! You know beans!
