Please send me no money

 I see a trend.  Everyday, folks offer me advice on how to have a “better” life or how to save the world from ruin. What they have in common is they all want me to send them a check. 

God’s messenger always seems to say, that God’s message is to give God’s messenger money.

To counter that trend, I offer some priceless tips, completely free gratis from a certifiably old person. 

Here are ………………………

Support Your Brothers and Sisters



When I speak of rich and poor, I am using the following definitions. A rich person is one who can exist on the income from inherited or accumulated wealth without resorting to working for others for wages, salaries commissions or other remunerations for their efforts or energies.

A poor person is ……………………………..

We are down the rabbit hole here in America, with the government shutdown, caprice by tantrum in foreign policy and the ever stronger whiff of fascism in our national domestic affairs.

There’s dignity in work

There’s dignity in work. If the worker gets a living wage and a square deal. But, there is no dignity in fat cat corporations getting richer by exploiting powerless workers.

In the state of Alabama the state minimum wage is $7.25 per hour, which is the lowest allowed by federal law. The city of Birmingham, Alabama  wants to raise the minimum wage within the city to $10.10 per hour. To stop this increase in wages by the city of Birmingham, the Alabama state  legislature has created ……….

 For me, learning is a piece of cake. I can learn almost anything with hardly any effort at all. I learn stuff everyday. Where I get daunted is remembering my lessons. Almost daily, I forget some lesson, I learned only a week or so before. Then, I burn my hand on the metaphoric hot skillet, and have to learn the same lesson over again.

Will Rogers said, that some people learn from books, some from observing others, and some have to

Losing home and dignity to corporations

Medicare is single payer government managed health insurance. Medicare works. Medicare recipients love Medicare, because the coverage saves us from losing our homes (and dignity) to medical bills. Providers like Medicare, because Medicare pays the bills on time with little hassle. Ask your doctor, I’ve asked mine.

In ANY health insurance system,

Right wing extremists have twisted the word fascist to mean anyone who bucks the corporate system. The TRUE meaning of Fascist is exactly OPPOSITE of that. The ACTUAL MEANING of the word Fascism is a philosophy, which supports totalitarian rule by a business and political coalition, which gains power through preaching ultra nationalism and bigotry against other groups. A Fascist is someone who believes democracy is rule of the mob and grossly inefficient. American fascists have found it convenient to confuse and devalue this word. Trump is by definition a fascist. Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing, it is accurate. No matter how badly you may hate Obama, he is NOT a Fascist. He is a democratic socialist for better or worse. If, you hate Obama, and want to insult him, do so accurately. And, if you want to be a fascist, tote your banner openly. I personally am a democratic socialist and damn proud of it.

medical marijuana for war vets

Ron Nesler New Harmony Indiana

During the Vietnam war, I was a Staff Sergeant E-6 in the US Army with a spotless record and accelerated promotions. I served 15 months in an artillery combat unit in Vietnam. I am rated 100% service connected disabled by the VA. I have three conditions, normally treated with medical marijuana in states other than Indiana.

But, because, I live in Indiana, I am forced to use other less effective medicines, some of which are highly addictive and/or cause liver damage. To the best of my understanding, the reason that I am denied medical marijuana in my home state, is because Mike Pence and other non veteran radicals fear that pot might have the side effect of causing me to be mildly euphoric. Or, that it might, as a worst case scenario, actually make me smile for a few minutes per day.

Mike Pence and all the other radical winger Chicken Hawks, who oppose medical marijuana for war vets, may kiss my rosy red enlisted ass.

almost like the system is rigged

During the Vietnam war, — (of which, unlike Cadet Bone Spur,  I was a participant) — our government spent hundreds of millions of dollars PER DAY on waging that war. I remember, when the war ended, my very first thought was that all of that money could then go into making life better for working class people in America.

In my childlike and trusting way, I just assumed that all of that money we had been wasting on war would go into education, schools, higher wages, health care, roads, bridges, libraries, space exploration, and other benefits for natural air breathing human beings.

Hello Polly Ana!

It has been forty years now, and working people are worse off today, than we were when the Vietnam war was at its worst. Sometimes, it almost seems like the system is rigged in favor of the war contractors.

Yes, I believe in God. I’m old, and I’ve seen a lot of things, that would make it difficult to not believe in God. The universe is seemingly endless, even though my pea brain can’t really even grasp the concept of infinite vastness. The earth is large and holds many miraculous sights. The seas are deep and mysterious and still mostly unexplored. Man creates technological marvels at a dizzying pace.  All of that argues for a creator of some sort.

Who am I, with my tarnished little flea bite of a soul and my pitiful little joke of an intellect to argue against what I see before me? I don’t do it. There is something beyond my understanding going on, and what the Hell could it be other than God?

Basically, I concede, that there is a God, and that it is not me.

That’s not much, but its enough to build my religion on. My religious practice is to make my mind stop chattering, (you might call that meditation) and then just listen for messages from the creator. I may be deceiving myself, that I am hearing the creator’s voice. It is possible, that I may be just picking up some  stray radio signals from old Jack Bennie radio programs. But, authentic or not, it makes me feel better to do this listening, and I feel like I learn some valuable ideas.

Here are SOME of the ideas, I think, I have learned by just tuning out my own brain chatter and listening.

  1. Human life is universal, we are all part of one large network, we need one another
  2. We are unequivocally the keepers of our brothers and sisters
  3. Selfish is counter productive, if you are selfish, you harm your soul
  4. True joy is found in relieving the suffering of a fellow creature.
  5. True joy is found in humility, arrogance is a poison to our souls
  6. It should go without even mentioning, that killing except in direct self defense, stealing, and infidelity, sexual or otherwise, are very bad ideas. If you practice any of these bad acts, it will come back to bite you in the ass, either now or later, and you will without fail suffer great misery for it.

That is pretty much my religion, and it feeds my spiritual needs. I ask you to note, that I have created my religion without embracing guns, racism, homophobia, or hatred or fear of anyone, no matter how different, they are from me.

I will also mention, that while I am NOT recruiting for my religion, if you did decide to join, you will NEVER be asked to give me money. That is a first principle of my church. Absolutely no donations accepted EVER. I think I have a better program on that point than either Franklin Graham or the Pope. I will never accept your money, not today, not next year, not ever.

Also, my religion is on line, has no scheduled services, and therefore won’t interfere with spending your Sundays with family and friends. You can golfing or go fishing or take the kiddos to the playground, without a speck of guilt.   🙂

Fine pizza or an exploding head?

I enjoy long winter time bouts of depression and despair as much as anybody. But, I try to do all things in reasonable moderation. This past two weeks, I have had a front row seat watching corporate and government vultures picking the bones of the weak and powerless. That always puts me in a funk. Greed and bullying are two of the most depressing things I know of.

And, then to top it off, a friend, one of my favorite people on the planet, a good and witty and generous person, cashed in her chips at 46 with a massive heart attack.  I could just sit down and cry. Or twist off and break things. Or, verbally abuse some richly deserving selfish asshole.

But, I have decided to pass on all of those proven stress relievers and just order a huge take out thin crust Pizza with everything, plus extra Anchovies, from Dimaggio’s Pizza in Mt Vernon, and then sit around all evening eating pizza and washing it down with a couple of bottles of Spanish lemonade with real cane sugar, that I have squirreled away for just such a time as this.

If, you are a selfish, low rent asshole, and I do not in any way abuse you, in the next 24 hours, you can say thank you to my magnificent self restraint, DiMaggio’s Pizza and the lemonade produced by those wily Spaniards.

May all selfish, greedy, self serving sissies kiss my rosy red working class ass.
