Nora Ephron“Everybody dies. There’s nothing you can do about it. Whether or not you eat six almonds a day. Whether or not you believe in God. (Although there’s no question a belief in God would come in handy. It would be great to think there’s a plan, and that everything happens for a reason. I don’t happen to believe that. And every time one of my friends says to me, “Everything happens for a reason,” I would like to smack her.)”
Nora Ephron, I Remember Nothing: and Other Reflections

 


Louise Erdrichle“Ravens are the birds I’ll miss most when I die. If only the darkness into which we must look were composed of the black light of their limber intelligence. If only we did not have to die at all. Instead, become ravens.”

Lifeger is hard. Then you die. Then they throw dirt in your face. Then the worms eat you. Be grateful it happens in that order.

David Gerrold

MTE5NTU2MzE2MjA4OTg5NzA3“You hear a lot about God these days: God, the beneficent; God, the all-great; God, the Almighty; God, the most powerful; God, the giver of life; God, the creator of death. I mean, we’re hearing about God all the time, so we better learn how to deal with it. But if we know anything about God, God is arbitrary.”

Bob Dylan

“To fear death, gentlemen, is no other than to think oneself wise when one is not, to think one knows what one does not know. No one knows whether death may not be the greatest of all blessings for a man, yet men fear it as if they knew that it is the greatest of evils.”
Socrates

Humans, inventing life and death, may not need better ideas…  We have become invisible gods in the sky, where love can be some distant entity, thing, person or nightmare…

But regardless of faith, fact, science, fiction, fantasy, fables, follies  or fairy-tales…  here on earth, life is fine and barring complications, sometimes more often than not, love works.

To life and courage: no fear, compromise or surrender.

“A coalition is building: 31 million Americans who want health care, 40 million www.elle.comAmericans who want student debt erased. 70 million students in secondary school and college who deserve free K-16 education. 5 million Americans who lost their homes to banks. 3 million Americans used and abused in corporate wars of choice. And 80% of Americans who are in debt and tired of seeing banks bailed out and Main Street sold out.”

The “Don” (D.J. Trump): Trouble, Inc.

“The Don” (D. J. Trump)  is now at the helm of the largest and most powerful organized crime syndicate in history. Dozens of extra-legal and extra-constitutional wars of aggression for the corporate bottom line have bankrupted the nation.

Nina Simone

“It was always Marx, Lenin, and revolution – real girl’s talk.”
 
― Nina Simone

Taxes

Large corporations do not pay sales taxes, property taxes, payroll taxes, Social Security or Unemployment. Everyday working people and consumers pay all of these taxes.

How to stop suicide and murder

In America, militarized police have been given permission to murder at will and leaders export terror, munitions and unprovoked wars of aggression abroad. This violence trickles down into our schools.

Gardening and The End of the World.

 It’s like we’re slippin’ into darkness…

“…By the end of October, twenty women had gone on the record to describe Trump’s sexual misconduct.”

The Bottom Line…

“We’re in serious trouble: before 2030 it is all over but the shouting.”
