“Rambling Again”

Any general worth their weight in gold knows that in order to conquer a city you must first divide it. We already took care of half the work for them.

Upper class, middle class, lower class, black, white, Latino, Asian, Indian, Muslim. We sure as hell don’t have a problem segregating ourselves from each other, do we?

And, we sure as hell don’t need someone else coming into this country to destroy us,because we’re perfectly capable of doing that ourselves. We bomb each other, shoot each other, beat each other to death, hell, we’re even knocking off our next generation one by one. Isn’t that something.

We’re not going to have a sane person left to run this country 20 or 30 years from now because we’re fucking them all up.

Threat to America?

The United States is slowly being invaded, but not by terrorists, viral weapons or Jehovah’s Witnesses.

No, I call them the BUGS FROM HELL.

The Brown, Marmorated Stink Bug, from the insect family Pentatomidae, has been an agricultural pest in it’s native countries of China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan.

Of course, since pretty much everything we buy in America is imported from these countries, is it any wonder why we are now facing the same Homeland Security threat.

Okay, so I’m being melodramatic, but let’s be honest, they are a pain in the thick of our derrieres with their incessant buzzing and unnaturally disturbing odor when you squash them, but they are a threat to farming communities across the Mid Atlantic and beyond, because they seem to be reproducing at an alarming rate.

SEPTEMBER, 1998

They were first collected in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

SEPTEMBER, 2010

They were recorded in 37 counties in PA.

PRESENTLY

There are reported sightings all across the country from California to New York.

So, how do we get rid of these suckers?

A few suggestions, mechanical exclusions being the best method of course, you want to make sure that cracks around windows, doors, siding, utility pipes, behind chimneys and under the wood fascia are sealed by good, quality silicone or silicone-latex caulk.

Yes, there is a higher purpose for silicone other than increasing breast size, although there may be many men out there who would disagree.

For the outside, you may want to contact your local pest control operator in the fall, prior to bug congregation.

Now, even with all these preparations, I am almost certain they will adapt and manage to weesle their way into our homes and lives.

Be strong America! We will prevail!

“Freewriting 1”

Okay…this book says that for the next 2 minutes I have to talk on paper. I remember doing that before when I was like 11. Now it seems so hard. I think because children are so innocent and curious, of course as we get older we’re tainted by all the shit the world tends to throw at us.

Me? I’m just like what the fuck am I doing? Am I writing or am I bullshitting myself? i do bullshit myself a lot so it wouldn’t be that far fetched.

I went and got some lottery tickets today and I know it’s like a one in a million shot but, it’s like this…you can’t win if you don’t play.

Yeah that’s bullshit too…anyway…

I don’t know what the hell I’m saying. I think I need some coffee.

Coffee! It is my favorite poison in the whole world. I could drink it all day and all night if i didn’t have to sleep.

Ah, sleeps overrated anyway.

I use to love to sleep because I was under the impression that i do dream, but, like 99.9% of the time I can’t remember them anyway so, really, what’s the point?

I was going to try learning how to do the lucid dreaming thing. Now that would be cool, providing, of course, it actually works. Then I could be in control and torture my enemies without any legal ramifications.

I remember buying these lucid dreaming glasses, they were like 250 bucks. Yeah, I”m a sucker. They claimed that when you went into REM sleep it would send this light sensor that was suppose to subconsciously awaken you to your dreams, kind of like virtual reality I guess.

I remember the first movie I saw on virtual reality. It was called “Westworld” with Yul Brenner. That was such a cool movie and that was the first time I ever saw Brenner’s sway. Yeah, he had a sway and I thought he was hot…anyway back to this writing thing.

What does it mean? Am I suppose to make sense because right now I don’t think I’m making a hell of a lot of it, bullshit maybe, but not sense.

It’s kind of like when I start talking about my views on the state of the world. I’m passionate about it and my voice gets louder and people stop listening and I get even more pissed off and start screaming until I don’t even remember what point I was trying to make in the first place.

Ah, well…I’m starting to ramble now so I guess it’s time to say goodnight.

Writer’s Confession

Yes, I did do it today.  It hasn’t been done for a long time so now it’s time for a writer’s confessional.  Forgive me Father, for it’s been ??? years since my last confession…

In the Information age with emailing, twittering, texting blah, blah, blah…I’ve gotten away from the old time trustworthy way of writing…It’s simple:

I remember the times when I would curl up on the sofa, listen to some Nina Simone and just put the pen to the paper and let the creativity flow through me.  No thinking about what I wanted to write, spelling, grammar or “Political Correctness”…just writing whatever came to mind.  Just me and my raw and sometimes wicked thoughts.

 Okay, so if I tried to write as fast as I type it would all come out looking like chicken scratch but it worked for me and it felt natural. 

I guess I learned my lesson from the old adage, “If it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it.”
