Holy Pas De Duex : My New Series

As you may have noticed, I have begun a new series of paintings dedicated to divine pairs of male and female dancers. The reasoning for this, I found that through love all things are possible, and to me since God is Love, I believe His love brought all being into existence, that life itself is a romantic divine dance. The reason for the pas de deux? Well for me the male female counterparts represent procreation bringing life into being.  It is based on my own personal experience of…

On Two Idiotic ‘isms

Religious fundamentalism and the philosophy of Materialism share a very important feature in common, both posses an un-testable core hypothesis. Fundamentalism says: “God is the only truth” and Materialism says: “Measurement is the only truth. Since faith is a prerequisite for religious thought, and faith is in itself…

Or How I learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Collapse of Empire

What is occurring in Ferguson is part and parcel of life in a police state/dictatorship. Everyone better get used to it because that’s what we have here in The U.S.A.

There is no point in becoming enraged by the abuses of the gangsters in charge anymore. Like getting mad at the weather it only…

On what Constitutes a Free Society:

On the Scale of U.S. Supported Armed Conflict around the World:

Peace and justice don't pay the 9 figure salaries of the hegemons at Exxon and Lockheed-Martin. Perpetual war for perpetual theft.

On the Current Supreme Court of the United States of America:

Why The Dakota Access Pipeline Will Prove to be Trump’s Achilles's Heel --I had a Prophetic Dream

By, Sandra Monday

Let me make one thing abundantly clear about myself; politically I am a duck billed platypus. I am Christian, Native American, and interestingly conservative on some issues and liberal on others. When I had to vote for president I could not vote for the lesser of two evils; I voted my conscious which was Jill Stein. I always thought I was progressive but when the left got so caught up in PC and virtue signaling other people’s thoughts and language, I retreated to my…

You can never go home

Is what they say

When you try to

It’s like the Mendela effect has everything erased

No Happ’s cafe just an empty green space

Condemned wood slated rusted tin roof roach ridden child hood home

Where stands empty the windows cavernous sockets.

Rubble and weeds remain silent where Pic n Save burned to the ground

Motorcycles Rev through the streets with a sound full of…
