What a wonderful, beautiful quote. 🙂 👇
You deserve a lover who wants you disheveled, with everything and all the reasons that wake you up in a haste and the demons that won’t let you sleep. You deserve a lover who makes you feel safe, who can consume this world whole if he walks hand in hand with you; someone who believes that his embraces are a perfect match with your skin. You deserve a lover who wants to dance with you, who goes to paradise every time he looks into your eyes and never gets tired of studying your expressions. You deserve a lover who listens when you sing, who supports you when you feel shame and respects your freedom; who flies with you and isn’t afraid to fall. You deserve a lover who takes away the lies and brings you hope, coffee, and poetry.
By the way, the featured image is of a friend of mine of whom I think when I read this poem; It is not of the author, Frida Kahlo.
In fact, he is about to start anytime now! 🙂 So you had better prepare yo’ self.
Squatting is very important. It is a functional exercise that builds strength and integrity throughout the body. Without the ability to squat, where would we be? On the floor, that’s where!!!
So practice your squats daily and you will reap the benefits immediately. My squatting practice has made a huge difference in the quality of my daily life. In fact, this has led me to buy . . . The Squatty Potty! Yes, indeed! And it is terrific. And it is a wonderful metaphor for how horribly misguided our stupid Victorian ways were, having grotesquely mutated the image of what life should be like for human beings, living on our heavenly planet Earth.
So, enjoy your daily squatting practice and get yourself a Squatty Potty. That is a great habit to keep your mind off of this COVID-19 party we’ve been surprised (not) by.
Live long and prosper,
I’m not voting for him and I hope you won’t either. Write in the candidate of your choice. Because, clearly, neither party is interested in nominating a candidate worthy of a vote.
Fuck all this.
Apparently things have to really hit rock bottom before enough people wake up. A lot of people have awakened! Obviously! And that’s fantastic! But the dead weight at the other end of the spectrum is still in deep sleep. Well, get ready, because the alarm’s about to go off and you can’t snooze it. 🙂 Go fuck yourself. You’ve held us back for far too long. Enough is enough.
At least ninety percent of women are interested in me primarily for my money, and that includes significant others and spouses.

And just for the record, I don’t blame women themselves for this. It’s the white male capitalist supremacist system that forces women to regard themselves in this way. Sexuality becomes necessarily a commodity rather than a human dynamic as it should be instead.
However, women could choose to rectify this if they were to feel like it. 🙂 We all have choices in life. You can either go with the flow, right or wrong, or you can do your own thing as an independent, free thinking, reasonable human being. Then it becomes your responsibility to either be part of the solution or part of the problem, as it is with virtually every other situation in life.
I’m f****** sick of hearing people talk about their strategies for voting the way that they do. F****** sick of it. That’s not what democracy is about. You look up how the candidates stand on the issues that you care about and then you vote for the candidates that reflect your values. That’s it! Doing anything else is just f****** things up even more. The truth is staring you in the face but you don’t even see it. When Donald Trump gets reelected you’ll get another chance to learn a lesson.
This is a phenomenal presentation by Dr. Richard Wolff on the long-known, glaring flaws of our capitalist system, their dire implications, and, most importantly, humane, enlightened alternatives. This is must-read material for anyone who wants to have an informed perspective on capitalism, Marxism, democracy, freedom . . . pretty much anything, actually.

Joe Biden’s non-apology to Anita Hill casts long shadow over 2020 run
How willing these idiotic primary voters are to hand over power to this childish fool, Joe Biden. Even after this much exposure his failures and weaknesses keep getting excused and ignored. Well, there really is no use feeling sorry for what people choose to inflict upon themselves, their poor, hapless selves, over and over again. With Trump’s election there seems no logical end to the degree of pain the suffering and ignorant are willing to inflict upon themselves.
But really the blame falls on the socioeconomic system and its philosophy or really the utter lack thereof that allows a democratic electorate to become so ignorant as to their own best interests and how to properly govern themselves as human beings or as a nation.

Speaking your voice and reaching out to your elected representatives seemingly could not be any easier than it is right now. Resistbot is a wonderful tool that allows you to painlessly communicate your thoughts, wishes, complaints, congratulations, anything you care to impart, to your elected representatives as well as other institutions, and it also keeps you informed of other important things you might want to know about as a responsible, conscientious citizen of the United States of America.
What a filthy piece of work this was.
I will be exhaustively annotating and updating this post going forward as it seems so important and pregnant with relevance and wisdom for our current situation and likely that for years to come.
Religious belief appears to have negative influence on children’s altruism and judgments of others’ actions even as parents see them as ‘more empathetic’

One of the things that I broadcasted on my TV channel was a slideshow of digital, visual wallpapers that I have collected while playing music in the background. Well, some of them contained nudity which was a violation of Twitch’s policies. So I got yanked for three days.
Therefore I decided to embark on the journey of creating my own streaming server which is almost complete but I haven’t decided quite which way to go yet. Once I do I will be up and running, streaming things like I was doing before. But for now it’s sort of hit and miss. You can catch me on Twitch but the hourback.tv domain isn’t pointing to anything in particular at the moment. I will try to remember to post a reminder here when it does point to something meaningful. And I hope you will watch it! Goodbye for now. Thanks for watching. 🙂💜🖖
