Ode to Summer

There will always be a paradise somewhere, so long as we revere our planet.

Save Surfside

It is always summertime somewhere, so long as our planet remains tilted just right.

Our Big Secret

So why is it that this summer seems drenched in a marinade of unintended consequences that may not come out in the wash.

Because They Could

Last year was the Summer of preposterous speculators, market manipulators and deranged perpetrating traders.

Enter Corexit

No doubt this is the Summer of petrol-coated oceans and fresh water flavored snacks.

Greed is God

This is the Summer soaked in thirst for endless more and the mysterious anomalies of a frenzied pace.

My New Country

This is the Summer of hormonal yearnings and nylon stockings.

The Summer of black santa.

Wait n Sea

Fathom This

"... the discovery of a seep and the unspecified anomalies suggest that the well could be damaged and that it may have to be reopened soon to avoid making the situation worse." NYTimes

Fickle Finger of Fate

The story of the Little Dutch Boy teaches us that a a small trickle of water soon becomes a stream and the stream a torrent and the torrent a flood sweeping all before it...

New Clear Option

If the latest containment efforts by BP fail, obama has announced that the US navy will take over with an elite mysterious team of aquatic assets that will stop the gusher once and for all.

Forking the Road

Microwaved Nation

With all the technology we ingest it is no wonder that our culture is festering with internet indigestion. The more we embrace the spoils of the information age the farther we get from the nature that is our very substance. Let us not conflate true sustainable living with the too big to fail, feel-good catch phrase trumpeted by the business as usual.

Office Bldg. of Cards

Finally construction is at an all time low. The few structures getting erected are of the prefabricated "tilt slab" variety that typify loss of jobs and stunning architecture. The arrested development due to the bursting of the credit bubble is a thawing that comes not a minute too soon to this hot forsaken heaven. 'Poop go the weasels' could be the term that defines the current end to the recent swarm of swamp speculators.

Cement or Sanity?

A short drive from the intersection of Surveillance Blvd. and Deforest Ave. is a fork in the road. There you will want to be the decider. Chose between a newly paved world or an organic world of days gone by, or make a u-turn and take the road less traveled. All rivers indeed lead to the ocean, but a tared road ends at the precipice of self-denial. The spiritual is a golden parachute for materialism, our understanding of the physical world.

Nomadic Yes, Yielding No

Young folk all around the world are not waiting for blessing from corporate media to shed taboo inhibitions and embrace the possibility of the vision thing. With the promise of bio-fuels and new horizons, they are taking the back-roads less traveled, the diligent path to sustainability. It is no longer a a question, it is a directive that Thomas has embraced with a full tank of vigor.

Compost for Humanity

Q:How did Corporate eat Organic?
A; One bite at a time.

My grandma died at 103. She, like all cave-people, ate only organic food. But today we all eat corporate food, otherwise know as caloric junk in individual portions with shelf-life. Surely any balanced neighborhood aught to have the ware-with-all and a few individuals willing to develop a community garden linked to a network of new urban farmers that embrace local solutions to our dietary needs. Murial of the Little River CSA is one such shining light of hope.
We all know what to do with bag of mangos but what do i do with 50 lbs of zucchini!

earn extra cash, doing nothing

The ClearChannel Choice

In these tough economic times, with skyrocketing inflation and stagnant wages, some intrepid and well situated folk are offsetting their property tax costs with the leasing of roof-space for giant billboards. The APD's (approved propaganda devices) must comply with the strict county sign ordinance. Once kosher, APDs provide a revenue stream while you slumber in front of the flat-screen. But be warned would-be-creative landlords, ironically if you choose to adorn the exterior walls of your building with graffitiesque murals without a permit, a courtesy notice/fine from the sign police will soon be levied.

Stones Will Roll

Wrapped in the flag of patriotism, our national psyche celebrates its 234th day of independence for British Pompocracy and its tyrannical heavy-handed taxation without representation.

Black Tea Flag Party

The Boston Tea Party of 1773 was a smashing success. Some colonists reached a sipping point when the British Parliament placed a heavy tax on basic stuff like caffeinated black tea leaves.
That was the tax that broke the loyalists purses. In classic black-flag style the fellas donned indian costumes and proceeded to trash the harbour.
Three years later, with the help of our french friends we musketed our way to independence.

Todays TEA party also has a short fuse with cries of
"Taxed Enough Already"
I wonder what costume they will wear when attempting to secede.

Alito and Scalia Court Disaster

Two recent supreme court decisions that mar this years 4th of july are:
1. They said its AOK for corporations to give as much money as the want to buy polititians.
2. They said its AOK to for any crazy american to own a gun or two.

Me First

Everybody is in on ramping up the rhetoric.
The Mob is Coming for Our White Women, are you ready?

Progressive Arsenal

Even Big Clinton has lost his mind, he wants to pull out the navy nukes and blast the unstoppable BP oil gusher in the Gulf... good luck w that.

Free Pizza with Every Purchase

We are not the only ones arming to the nines. Look around and you will find model dual citizen Jack Abramoff getting out of jail early for god behavior, landing a job in a pizza parlor and maybe even back to his old uber-lobbying tricks, just not in broad daylight.

Amp Up the Volume

The whole system is insane.
We kill for sport, justice and our way of life.
A heartless few profit from the war machine.

Dump, American Style

We have to keep up the status quo, or else who knows, the gods may switch sides.

Marco Rudio

Vote for him, he's 50% cuban - 50% teabag.

Love It or Bomb It

Have a Bang-a-Bong-Blastic Fourth of July 2010.
