May -- National Bike Month

We're out there balancing on two wheels and a triangle; if you're in a car watch out for bicyclists, please.

One may go many places by bike

or maybe by boat

One could stop by the river

and see a swan

or an authentic Dutch windmill

or two.

One could bike to Lake Michigan and walk the pier.

Now, that's the knd of Rapture one can believe in.

Myth Taken

"Live a good life. If there are g0ds and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are g0ds, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no g0ds, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."
-- Marcus Aurelius

"There is no g0d, and heaven is a fairy tale for those afraid of death."
--Stephen Hawking

"No gods, no masters. "
--Margaret Sanger

No matter how you look at it, we bin had.

Didn't Bush justify war in Iraq because Bush officials legally swore Saddam Hussein was behind 9/11? We do know that Saddam's Weapons of Mass Destruction was not proven by the facts. When and how did 9/11 get pinned on Osama? Benazir Bhutto said Osama died in 2001, and without any facts to the contrary, that's what i tend to believe.

I wonder if some Pakistanis would consider the actions of the Obama US government to be that of terrorists? I'm thinking of our use of drones that have been reported to have killed innocent men, women, and children; our "diplomat" who gunned a man down in the back, who was later proved to be a Blackwater contractor with ties to the CIA.

I would be amused at all of the conflicting "facts" from our government officials on the Osama raid, if i were not so sad. My hope was that this mission would result in the withdrawal of US troops from at least Afghanistan and Pakistan, we sure could use some of those billions of war dollars here at home. And, that all the infringements of our rights and freedoms by Homeland Security would ease up. Well, the latest reports are that the drone attacks have resumed, and information was found that Al Queda was planning attacks on our rail system. So of course we will need more unhealthy porno-scanners and pat-downs almost anywhere crowds might go. How much longer until our freedom of speech is gone? Watcha gonna do?

War and Torture, when i so prefer Peace n Love.

05/07 --  Our newest drone attack? It was to kill the American-born (New Mexico) cleric Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen. It was reported to have missed him, but killed three others. So now we're bombing in another country? And the prez is giving orders to assassinate our own citizens in foreign countries we're not even at war with? We don't believe in trials, or the justice system at all anymore? I want the old USA back, the one I could be proud of.

To the Beach

Waiting to turn left this view behind the storefronts always catches my eye.

Sunny but cold.
