I will reiterate that Mitt Romney will not be the nominee


I will reiterate that Mitt Romney will not be the nominee
Neither will Newt Gingrich or Santorum
Romney has never risen always he has fallen
Or stayed even with his low level
Now that he is ten points behind Obama in all battleground states
No GOP mover will allow him to 
become the George McGovern of the GOP
They will have to nominate someone else 
out of simple self defense
I have always said he would not win
It 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 better stop or I will find you and give you a good Beacon Hill caning. Be fairly warned. Repent or else.

Everything You Need  to Know to Boycott Koch Products

I Love It Dumping on Obama and Lying About It

News Desk: Funders Behind New Anti-Obama Ad Blitz Stay Hidden : The New Yorker:

'via Blog this'

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.

Steve Wynn Moves to Macau & Other Gambling Notes

One reason for ShortFormContent is that a salient longer piece  exceeds the capacity of a blog. The link above takes you to an informative piece on the eclipse of Las Vegas by Macau. Good on the New Yorker.

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

Make people happy others first

Make people happy others first
There are at least 100 ways
But all of them stem from one thing
Believing that it makes your days

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

Pragmatism to the New York Times is caution

Pragmatism to the New York Times is caution
Idealism to the New York Times is take a chance
But ideal and pragmatic are the same
A point Barack Obama understands

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 

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


Charles Sanders Peirce - Thinking in Threes

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

A Semiotic Inquiry

I say to the sign man Sir please say
Could the mind not start and stop a sign
And if a sign might simply be a word
Could not a word transcend all time

The Hat in Hand Approach to the One Percent Is Demeaning


The hat in hand approach to the one percent is demeaning
When we say pay just a little bit more it sucks
Fair play the only phrase that should escape our lips
The Right Wing wants to screw us it's time that we woke up

Mitt Complacent? Just What The Nation Needs

Beware complacent candidates
Who just might do what they say
Beware our resultant fates
Should the Right Wing have its way

We'll stand and we'll fight until justice we see
