News items of interest

Some recent news which has particularly caught my interest

UK Faces Food Security Catastrophe With Decline in Pollinators

Public Protests About Political Gagging Law to Affect Charities and Activist Groups

Primary campaign group:

On the realities of poverty in America, opposing the myth machines

Burglars who exposed FBI actions against dissent and the peace and civil rights movement tell the public

(1970s) ““It wasn’t just spying on Americans,” said Loch K. Johnson, a professor of public and international affairs at the University of Georgia who was an aide to Senator Frank Church, Democrat of Idaho. “The intent of Cointelpro was to destroy lives and ruin reputations.”

Stale but still aweful:

60 Limitations >>> 61 Inner Truth

The changing line is on how limitations too severe are self defeating, bringing physical imbalance in the realm of asceticism and revolt in the realm of governance.

In the case of the UK story this seems to apply to the lobbying law. Also in trying to eliminate pest insects we encourage their eventual rebound in epidemic proportions (not in story) and decimate the natural populations we rely on for food pollination. Actually I can see it in all five stories.

Also Global Marches Against Monsanto, GMOs

Although I don’t know if all their claims are valid, it does seem to me that GMOs are not proven safe, particularly if some virus began moving the terminator gene or roundup gene to other parts of the food web. Outside possibility, but the longer we keep this up the more likely it will become.

A different life

The movement grows – self sufficiency

People prefer to live on nothing by their own sweat

Over working desk or server jobs

To be normal – and buy shit

Work that manure

Feed them all

The old life, but with better food

& better for the climate, the environment, & the power balance


School is finished in medical leave

Now I present a better action plan(s)

To Mom & Dad

It’s going to be awesome

I have certain demands

But I know precisely


What I am doing.

Oh, happy day!

Continuing with art, music, tech freelance

Where and if plausible

Or can befit my schedule


The Mill

uncertainty of time
those who post
Until the seasons change
Do nothing but study
Computer work and writing
How to increase the output
And decrease time spent
Key to stress
Watching the world pass as paychecks

vie for attention

Against grades dishes garden

& longer term art & vision

Under the suppressing wail of freelance & class
Wondering why I did not reach vacation

@ semester’s end
