Meanwhile, on the horizon, pointed shapes sprout from the Earth, deadly black missiles mushrooming into sight here and there – North Korea, Russia, France, Great Britain, Pakistan, India, the United States, and other countries planning and secretly hoping to bring into bloom [...]

The Withdrawal of Hope.

Tweet North Korea will soon be poised to send atomic bombs to the mainland United States. Our Congress is mulling, over and over, a Republican healthcare bill that would strip healthcare of tens of millions of our own citizens – all without the slightest regard for their welfare, and replace it with nothing, just bare [...]

Our Christian Nation & The Bomb

Tweet Last week, the United States, with United Nations Ambassador Nikki R. Haley leading the way, boycotted talks at the global organization for a treaty that would ban nuclear weapons.

Traveling to a New America/Jack London Square

Tweet I’m standing near a statue of Jack London, in Jack London Square, Oakland, California.

His works often portray [...]

Why is this world awash in blood, while Christians, Muslims & Jews – the followers of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism [...]

A Mushroom Cloud of Madness

Tweet Thousands of nuclear weapons, poised around the world, waiting for annihilation.  Utter insanity. Time to clear the decks!  Away with the old ideas of who we are, and why we are here, and what this life is all about. A new vision of ourselves.  A new dream of America.  A new religion for the [...]

Armageddon: The Dream of End Days

Tweet Christianity and Islam both hold a burning vision of the end days, Armageddon. A day of justice, when the armies of the righteous will triumph over Satan and unbelievers.  An enormous bloodbath – described either in the Book of Revelation, or the missives of current-day ISIS. This is the dream of so many people.  [...]

The Only Force That Can Defeat The Bomb

Tweet The Bomb detonates deep within the caverns of my life and mind. Rage, anger, an implosion of dark light.  The universe around transforms and morphs into the same deadly darkness, enveloping the sun. This is my world too.  This is the world of all of us.  The Bomb, the devastation could not exist and [...]
