The True Meaning of Halloween.

Samhain (pronounced Sow’en,) in pagan philosophy, is when the old year dies. The growing season is over. Vegetation withers and falls. Winter, aka death, is just beginning. It’s also when the “veil” between this world and the spirit world is “thin,” if you believe… Continue Reading “The True Meaning of Halloween.”

Most Depressing Post Ever. Do Not Read.

No one cares about me. I don’t mean that in a fishing-for-sympathy-pathetic-loser-ish sort of way. I just mean it as a calm statement of fact. My 90-year-old father is in the ICU tonight for a non-COVID-related medical condition. In the coming days, he’ll have… Continue Reading “Most Depressing Post Ever. Do Not Read.”

10 Things Your Small Town Can Do on July 4th to MAGA!

Trigger Warning: This post is satire. It is mockery. It is sarcasm. Yes, it uses some offensive language, but only to mock those who would use it in real life. I originally posted it last year. It was my first post, actually. Hope you get a kick out of it.

The Weaponization of Emotion

This post was originally supposed to be about Michael Moore’s controversial new documentary, Planet of the Humans. And it still is, but not in the way you’d think.

A Meditation On Matriarchy and Paganism.

Matriarchy isn’t what people think it is, either. It’s not women being in charge of everything, or having power over men, or anything else. It’s the opposite of patriarchy, not it’s mirror image. It’s something totally different and apart from it. If patriarchy is… Continue Reading “A Meditation On Matriarchy and Paganism.”

The Selfishness of Rich People.

Or, Paying To Destroy Nature, But Not To Preserve It. So, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret that’s not much of a secret. My day job right now is working for the National Park Service at the entrance gates of a… Continue Reading “The Selfishness of Rich People.”

A Few Far-Left Reasons To Maybe Think About Voting For Joe Biden.

I’ve made my feelings known in previous posts how I feel about Joe Biden as the Democratic nominee for president. I think he sucks. That hasn’t changed. And I’m still not VBNMW, as I’ve also explained in previous posts, and I’m not at all… Continue Reading “A Few Far-Left Reasons To Maybe Think About Voting For Joe Biden.”

Patriarchy is not what you think it is. It’s way worse.

There seems to be this idea among many who call themselves feminists that patriarchy amounts to nothing more than men being in charge of stuff, and if only women were in charge of stuff, everything would be better. This belief is both insufficient and… Continue Reading “Patriarchy is not what you think it is. It’s way worse.”

Welcome to Dysfunction Junction!

Welcome to where politics, emotion, and spirituality meet! I live in Grand Junction, Colorado, which is renowned as being one of the most conservative counties in the state. Extremely conservative, in fact. I, most certainly, am not extremely conservative, as I’m sure you’ve guessed.… Continue Reading “Welcome to Dysfunction Junction!”

Every Day . . .

. . . is “Earth Day.” We just don’t notice. As humans, at least as “modern,” “civilized,” “westernized” humans, we like to think of ourselves as separated from this other thing we call “Nature.” We like to think of ourselves as “in control.” This,… Continue Reading “Every Day . . .”
