Life In The Psychedelicatessen

Here, in order from the top, is the story of my wandering into the world of LSD-assisted psychotherapy … a strange tale indeed, and kids, don’t try this at home … Best to all, w. Another Tale of Derring-Don’t Well, now that Justice Kavanaugh has endured the attempted suspension of the presumption of innocence, and…

Raw Terror

Folks sometimes accuse me of being “Islamophobic”. I’m nothing of the sort. A “phobia” is a baseless fear of something harmless. I don’t have that. What I have is a historically justified, fact-based fear of Islam. It’s not just Christianity in funny hats. It is a warriors religion and the stated goal is to establish…

What’s Behind Gun Murders?

Well, I did this analysis about a year ago, but I hadn’t posted it because I knew that people would call me “RACIST!!” … but what I’m posting are simple facts. Plus at this point I’ve been falsely called a RACIST!! so many times it doesn’t even register any more. Let me start with a…
