Class War

image borrowed from bing

Class War

Through recent personal circumstances, I've been intensely made aware of how much privilege I enjoy. And while I certainly appreciate how that privilege is helping me, and am grateful for my long slog up the economic mountain, I am also reminded of how many folks do not have even a sliver of that privilege. As I read the coverage of last night's Republican Presidential debate, I am nauseated by how completely they've abandoned and vilified all middle and lower-class folks. And I'm even more nauseated to know that a majority of those middle and lower-class citizens will vote for the top Republican maniac in 2012.

October 25th was Picasso's birthday,
and I know for a fact he loved the
movies; this is proof.

The Fourth Annual Willow Manor Ball

Yes, the 24 hour extravaganza is finally here. Before I link in with Mr. Linky's Magical Widget I need to prep my site for "some" intrepid visitors.
My chariot for the evening, a 1968 Chevrolet Impala SS convertible, with a four speed manual transmission, and a 396 V-8 engine.
My date for the evening, the lovely Cate Blanchett.

My formal attire will be this smashing kilt outfit.

This will be my tartan.

More later as the party experience deepens.

Palmer's Folly

I have felt for years that
riding in a Prius is like
riding in a Rainier beer can,
but a ride with Doug the other
day changed my mind.

a federal hogan.

but truthful, and perhaps
has always been the case
as we study history.

in the distant middle east
where citizens gather and
shout revolution.

Blowing Up Liberty's Skirt

needs to be done on a

complacency and ignorance
hide beneath it.

Never Means Maybe

never means maybe,
for music is what
images became after
they were whelped
as words, and given
birth as thoughts.
