Rough Day 13

Ever have one of those days when you really wish Jesus would quit fooling around and just come back already? You know what I mean; we all have days that we know going in are going to be bad, but then they turn out to be so much worse than we expected. This has been ...

Writing X-rays 11

“Words can be like X-rays, if you use them properly–they’ll go through anything.” Aldous Huxley, Brave New World. I’m a writer (or at least I flatter myself that I am), so words are kind of my thing. Every once in a while, I’ll run across something that seriously changes my outlook, or how I think, ...

Pine Ridge Indian Reservation: Link to Mission Report

For those of you who are interested in the mission trip that a group of friends and I make annually to Pine Ridge Indian reservation in S.

Some Days It Just Doesn’t Pay to Get Out of Bed. 2

Some days, you just know going in, that it’s going to be a shitty day. Take the other day for example; I woke up when the alarm went off – my least favorite way to wake up, or at least least favorite normal way to wake up (waking up to being swallowed alive by a ...

What I Think: About Participation Trophies 4

Disclaimer: Sorry folks, but this one probably isn’t going to be very funny either: For the sake of expediency in future posts, lets just agree that, when you see the title begins with “What I Think:”, you should just skip right on by if you’re just looking for a laugh. Hopefully I’ll find something to ...

Just When You Think You’ve Stuck the Landing: Life Happens 3

Just When You Think You've Stuck the Landing: Life Happens
Life is weird, uncertain, and, more often than not, annoying. We all expect a certain amount of troubles, trials, and travails, but we generally expect to get through them and, we also expect a certain amount of calm after the storm ends. Not a lot, but at least enough time to catch our breath. Sometimes ...

Reading Rousseau: The Problem With Education

I am currently writing a book, set 200 years in the future, after the near-total splintering of society following the election of a narcissistic, childish, manipulative con man/businessman to the American Presidency. The story takes place in two bordering countries: the remains of the U.S.A., and Bernietopia, i.e. the northeastern part of the U.S. It’s ...

A Few Thoughts On: The Dakota Pipelines 8

As you may have noticed (or may not have), I haven’t posted anything in awhile. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to: I have. There really are just two reasons why I haven’t. Reason #1: I’m working on a book. It’s a satire that looks at the U.S.A. in about 200 years, based on my ...

Ordinary, Red-Neck Indiana Farmer Defies Expectations, Finds Solution to Most of World’s Problems 7
