A New Season

After a one month hiatus, we were treated this evening to the start of a brand new sixteen weeks of backstabbing, lying, ass-kissing, self-centered egomaniacs going at each other's throats to win a job working for an asshole of a boss. I've never seen anyone with such a talent for making people feel like shit about themselves.

Trump may be the boss from hell, but it seems there's some kindness somewhere inside him. Apparently, one day while driving to Atlantic city, Trump's vehicle broke down, or got a flat tire, or something equally inconvenient. A very kind person stopped to help "the Donald", who later showed his gratitude to this individual by paying off his house. OK, maybe he wins a few points there. I still don't want to work for him, though.

  1. Ok so I have to say I am hopelessly Addicted to this show. I love it when the contestents fight with each other. You have to admidt it is too funny that they would do all this just to hear Donald Trump say Your fired.

    I was pleasently suprised that the "street smart" people won the first mission..especially a mission where they had to work at a fast food restraunt. Not that im putting down people with degrees (I have one..but a 2 year degree never counts for anything) I Just hate when people with 4 year degrees think they are so much better than people with experience..like last season when Jenn was all Well i have an harvard degree so that makes me so much better than you Kelly. I was glad he won. Ok im done ranting now..lol

Unmasking My Mask Problem

I like to think of myself as a caring person, and attempt to behave compassionately towards others. Sometimes I fall short in that effort, but failing is what humans do, and successful humans learn from failure. I'd like to discuss what I believe is one of my more recent failures, and what I've come to learn about what's behind it. When the masking guidance and mandates first dropped, it short-circuited me. I reacted in disbelief, anger, and refusal to enter places that required masks. Masking was a simple act that was both scientifically and morally justified. I wondered if I really was a decent person, or if this reflexive pushback was just uncovering undiagnosed sociopathic tendencies. I started to wonder if my outward behaviors of positivity and kindness were just facades that I'd constructed around a dark psyche. Given the rhetoric surrounding mask-wearing, which can — as far as I understand — be reduced to “you're a monster if you don't do this,” it was ha

Meditation

At the end of 2019, I began casually practicing mindfulness meditation. Just over a year later, it's become a nearly essential part of my routine; it provides me an off-ramp to ease back into my personal life after an eight-hour (often longer) workday. Some folks have expressed interest in hearing more about this routine, so I thought it would be helpful to chronicle my experiences: the good, the bad, and the frustrating. Buddhism has been an interest of mine for several years now, and I have a particular affinity for the simplicity of Zen Buddhism. It strips away a lot of the religious/spiritual elements more common in forms of Buddhism found in Tibet, for example. I sometimes use the term Zen meditation , when it is probably more accurate to refer to it as mindfulness meditation. This type of meditation focuses on being aware and present for each passing moment. Contrary to popular belief, it's not about emptying the mind or teleporting to some sort of astral plane. It's

Insurrection

The criminals who invaded the capital on January 6th, 2021 are not patriots. There is nothing noble or heroic about violently storming the capitol building and disrupting a legal proceeding that is outlined in the constitution of the United States . Those who took part in — or even endorsed — such actions are seditious goons with an axe to grind because the election results didn't favor them. The events yesterday were a culmination of unhinged ramblings and lies from the occupant of the White House, and years of disinformation emanating from the dark recesses of the web. Finally, there is simply no room for whataboutism here. The events of the summer do not hold a candle to the actual sedition that we witnessed yesterday. The demonstrations — and yes, violence — from this summer were to protest hundreds of years of oppression and marginalization of Black people. To equate those protests to yesterday's domestic terrorism is fallacious and ignorant.
