Drone pilots to get medals?

You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension: a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into... the Twilight Zone.

"The Pentagon is considering awarding a Distinguished Warfare Medal to drone pilots who work on military bases often far removed from the battlefield."

The Gender Prison

When publishing in a new place, one should be aware of the fact that one may have new readers. Since the raison d'etre I've assigned myself is to be an educator about people like me, I should start anew with what it exactly means to be a "person like me".

Hey There Obama

Hey There Obama

hey there Obama
what's it like there in that bubble
yeah, I hate to spoil the party
but here on main street
we're in trouble
yes it's true
not that it matters much to you
what else is new

hey there Obama
sorry wisdom from a cynic
I'm still here with no insurance
and two hours from a clinic
save your spin
you've got an ear that's made of tin
that's not a win

Clean Up the Boston Police Patrolman's Association

Introduction
I've been involved in Occupy since last September. I went down to Liberty Square about one week after the occupation began and stayed for 5 days, then returned to join the occupation in my hometown, Boston.

It's been an interesting personal journey for me. I have no idea what the long-term manifestations of the Occupy movement will look like. What I do know is what a lot of us have realized: at the core of what makes the global society so dysfunctional are the deeply historical roots of oppression and the colonization mentality. Man's inhumanity to man.

Syria, Another Regime Change, Another War.

Trying to write something about what’s happening in Syria -

I like to boil things down to simple terms. I read a quote from Albert Einstein once and it confirmed that approach.

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler”

It’s a fucking regime change.

It can't get simpler, therefore it isn't.

It was obvious from the start. Actually it was obvious at least nine years ago when General Wesley Clark told us Syria was on the list for regime changes. Nothing has really changed from Bush to Obama in this regard.
