Facebook Censorship Expanding: Post This!

When does social networking become social engineering? As a rule, I stay off Facebook. I have a Dojo Rat account just to hold the space, but I simply can’t stand using it. When I first set it up I didn’t even advertise that Dojo Rat had an account, people simply found it. Suddenly I had […]

The Tree-Huggers Are Right!

The Tree-Huggers Are Right!

Ever wonder about the phrase “Tree Hugger”? I believe that it comes from the practice of “Tree meditation”. If you stand next to a large tree in a calm environment and place the palms of your hands about an inch from the trunk, under ideal conditions you can actually feel the energy of the tree. […]

InDOPEndence Day

InDOPEndence Day

So Thursday I was walking up to our local watering hole and around back three of my buddies were lighting up a joint: It was “inDOPEndence day” in Washington State. Yes, while they were technically in public (which is still illegal) smoking pot is no longer a criminal offense in Washington. But don’t count your […]

The Return of Fascism; Part 1

In the wake of the U.S. Presidential election in 2012 much of the world appears to be in chaos. Much like the global “Great Depression” that began in the last century our current economic mess was largely created by barely legal financial instruments. These practices, fed by the deregulation of the financial industry were designed […]

  A huge swath of “atmospheric river” is hitting the west coast, with possible damage dwarfing that which recently happened in Hurricane Sandy.

  • When Orcas Island Had A Sea Serpent
    May 1909, off the North Shore of Orcas Island, Washington State: “As Baker ran he saw the water begin foaming out past the reef, and the head of a huge serpent rose from the roiling waters. Ten feet and more of the monster’s head surfaced, and his undulating body rose in and out of the […]
  • Mixed Review: “Fault Lines” By Kruse And Zelizer
    It’s not often that I give mixed reviews, I usually select books that I am truly interested in. Additionally, I rarely quit reading a book I intend to review, but that’s exactly what I did with this book. I initially really wanted to read this book to reinforce my reckoning of news from my teen […]
  • Monkey Business: Two Very Different Bigfoot Books
    In these crazy times, I have had a need to take a break from political research. What I found is as informative and interesting as it is scary. That is, reading up on Bigfoot-Sasquatch, which probably for the same reason I found, has hit an all-time high public interest cycle. Bigfooters, or “Squatchers”, as they […]

Stanley, a Yale professor has produced an examination of fascism that is reflected in the current state of American affairs. Fascism […]
  • Review: “Devolution” By Max Brooks
    People who read this blog have probably noted a change in the material I have reviewed lately. Recent subjects include: permaculture, radicalism in the 1970’s, pre-history revisionism, and yes, Bigfoot. The fact is, I am in a political burn-out mode and needed some breathing room with off-beat subject matter. Rarely do I read fiction, but […]
