#038 Moscow Hostage Crisis

#038 Moscow Hostage Crisis  Part One  Life of the slave show!     I will remove you from your castle and make you watch the way we live in the wilderness below.        And she slips off her high heels into a star-crossed stare down,      She always calls the shots,     Gun shots to blood soaked makeshift cots.    The shots she calls are complicated.              She must find me highly dedicated.  She mostly deals with the haves, and I am the have nots. The rules are anything goes, but no know one “knows”.     If she’s been known to steal the weapon … Continue reading #038 Moscow Hostage Crisis

Al Prelude

Al Prelude It is not that any of us longed to die. It was only that we believed that in this transience, this short human life, it was preferable to die on ones feet moving towards a just idea. Moving in solidarity, in defense of the powerless. Then it would be to die on our backs or our knees, half lives, shuffling along like zombies. Always asleep. With meaningless, un-free lives wasted. Lives spend like serfs and slaves.   Have you ever had an amazing noble idea in your head? That simply refused to translate itself or find traction in … Continue reading Al Prelude

False Necessitarian Theory

False necessity, or anti-necessitarian social theory, is a contemporary social theory that argues for the plasticity of social organizations and their potential to be shaped in new ways. The theory rejects the assumption that laws of change govern the history of human societies and limit human freedom. It is a critique of “necessitarian” thought in conventional social theories (like liberalism or Marxism) which hold that parts of the social order are necessary or the result of the natural flow of history. The theory rejects the idea that human societies must be organized in a certain way (for example, liberal democracy) and that human activity will adhere to certain … Continue reading False Necessitarian Theory

Bereshit 2

1 Now that the heavens and the earth were ordered and completed, they had to be named.  All known and knowable existence became subject to the measure of soon sentient woman and man. Host to their speculation and inquiry. Through humans Hashem subjected raw creation to rational existence and subsequent use. Subjected a raw matter to rumination and use. 2 Hashem completed all this by the seventh day. Hashem then abstained on the seventh day from any further creation, work or even naming. On the 7th Day Hashem rested. Infinite matter and all newly made things paused to rest, to … Continue reading Bereshit 2

Invest in EMS

Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and Paramedics practice a largely non-scientific, protocol driven form of medicine, in completely uncontrolled non-sterile field environments with little to no direct supervision. No matter what valid grievances other sectors had, it was the EMS members in and out of Covid infected households with 1 N95 for a week or 2 issued at most, with no access to 3m Respirator Masks. We all got exposed. 18 of us died in the tri-state area. 6 in the FDNY. Everyone clapped and kept it moving. But some of the therapies we were using of our own initiative were … Continue reading Invest in EMS

The Real Difference

The Real Difference Between EMS, Police, Nursing, Sanitation and Firefighters It takes a special person to be a first responder. There is a great deal of real danger involved in any job where a person is asked to drive and run towards an emergency that the majority of people are running away from. We compensate first responders for the readiness for that danger. In the case of EMTs and Paramedics, the city and state have basically refused to. The difference between an EMS provider and a Cop or Firefighter is not the risk involved, as Mayor DeBlasio has claimed. The real … Continue reading The Real Difference

Malcolm on the Ballot or the Bullet

Malcolm on the Ballot or the Bullet Malcolm X: History and Philosophy     This famous speech is perhaps best viewed as a candid ultimatum. As the race crisis in America escalated in violence and scope; Malcolm X articulated the position of many northern Blacks for which segregation was a non-issue. Coming at a time after his separation with the Nation of Islam (NOI) and Elijah Muhammad, the Ballot of the Bullet speech touches on four key themes that illustrate a great transition on Malcolm’s philosophy and political strategy. Underling these four points is bold and terrifying statement in line with … Continue reading Malcolm on the Ballot or the Bullet

#2: The Dragon Fly

Danger, she makes strange bed fellows. There are no atheists in fox holes, they say.     But I was one.         I need no God to die today.     Or to love.         Or do with my hands,     What most attempt with vain word.         Of paper figures.     I lost once in a bottle what a priest uses achieves in a prayer; never saw, only heard.         Vodka is more inviting than the priests anyway.     Safer also to have children around.         I believe I was a child around you once or … Continue reading #2: The Dragon Fly
