I will reiterate that Mitt Romney will not be the nominee

I will reiterate that Mitt Romney will not be the nomineeNeither will Newt Gingrich or SantorumRomney has never risen always he has fallenOr stayed even with his low levelNow that he is ten points behind Obama in all battleground statesNo GOP mover will allow him to become the George McGovern of the GOPThey will have to nominate someone else out of simple self defenseI have always said he would not winIt is a delight to say it when he is being weakly crowned by people who do not believe he can win

An Irate Mildred Purse Can Smell the Koch Brothers When They Lie

The doyenne of Beacon Hill, Mildred Purse, has a most perspicacious nose. Her statement below borders on the extreme, even for her. But she is steamed. She plans to use her sonorous voice to do in the Koch brothers before they do the entire world in.



Koch boys, I could not eat my midday meal today. I was literally sick. All because you have made being wealthy a bad word. You are single-handedly sullying the reputation of the rich. And the payoff is that I can smell banality. Even with a light wind in the direction of Beacon Hill, I smell not only your oily companies but  you yourselves . My sensitive, blue-blooded nostrils are in great pain. You are lying about the one man who can keep us from regressing to the depths of  hell created by that George - I cannot even speak his name. And when you lie, I smell it. Disgusting. It lacks the clean smell you get around an old-style barn. It is mingled with chemicals that you produce whose names I do not even know. They're all poison. You b…

I Love It Dumping on Obama and Lying About It

These people have no ethics, no conscience, and a great capacity for bald-faced lies. It is inconceivable that the Kochs are not elbow deep in the pile of offal that they are putting out. It is impossible that they have not chosen swing states for their noxious ads to run. If they can sleep at night that is proof that their consciences are in escrow somewhere. The only redemptive thing about this is that the lies are starting bright and early, in time for the people to catch on. The Kerry killing the Hard Right conducted was just a warm up. This will overreach and hopefully it will create an electoral tidal wave that will roundly humiliate every criminally-minded individual engaged in this Big Lie effort.

For finally it was not I but we

There comes a time when etched upon a face The weight one sees there is humility A face once flecked with worry renders grace
For finally it was not I but we

Charles Sanders Peirce renamed pragmatism pragmaticism

Because Peirce perceived that the thought he had invented had been Distorted by William James and others  He renamed pragmatism pragmaticism And proceeded ignored and misunderstood along his Metaphysical way Where he remains substantially ignored Though doors to him are opening today

Charles Sanders Peirce and Barack Obama Pragmalogicians

Logic is ontology It dwells on brute fact That is Charles Sanders Peirce and that is Barack Obama Between idealism and pragmatism there is no difference Call it pragmaticism if you wish Or pragmalogic As Peirce contended Obama believes Which is why he is a different President Why he won and perhaps will win again And why he may have been onto reality The world is coming to perceive

Grow up you churches grasp the master's words

Grow up you churches Grasp the master's words The world is in your hands  and it is perishing of oil glut and climate change  and privilege supported by know-nothings  who do not believe  that Jesus thought we had enough in us  to become responsible
That is a sad meditation and a mouthful And sadly creedal religion has the answer down "Make a religion of a way and a charity of love And nothing has to change"
But it does And it will This is the millennium of values  to replace the virtues of Aristotle  which have served us mainly ill
The values are stated for all to see above They may be inferred as Abba's way To repeat Tolerance  Helpfulness  Democracy  Non-idolatry

The values of the Beatitudes rule

You can figure out what Jesus was up to
by noting whose happiness he was concerned about How the churches can condone war
and aid and abet conflict is not hard to figure out From the start the temptation was
to view all this as wimpy impossible It was easier to turn Jesus
into the figure Satan evoked in the temptations incident  and endow him with mystery and miracle and authority
and have done with it And that is essentially what the church did
and still does via creed  and priestly prerogative and showy evangelical Jesus talk But now as with Gutenberg the door is opening to truth  now spoken not by those who have the official stamp of certification But by the faces and chants of those around the world
who seek to make peace by
facing down the principalities and powers  and understanding that is finally values that tell  and that the values of the Beatitudes rule

Abba's chosen children are all peacemakers

Abba's chosen children are all peacemakers
Conscious killing is wrong save in self defense
And then in strict proportion to wrong done
Not eliminating mercy in the face of violence
Peacemakers have strength and courage
They defend  us against global suicide
The only real honor lies in being one
