Blink THIS.

As a male who has experienced what can only be described as a catastrophic fallow period in mate selection, I was less than optimistic about my recent foray into online dating after reading various selections from Malcolm Gladwell's Darwinian anti-God screed "Blink". So THIS explains it. Women decide within 8 seconds whether or not they are going to sleep with a man, and all the cognitive processes in the world are hopeless against this intuition. This, of course, negates such hypothesizer's as Harville Henry, whose book "Getting the love you want" theorizes that men and women are all looking for their mommy and daddy's. Or what about John Bradshaw and his inner child work, not to mention all of the twelve step recovery work being done every single day for years to reprogram the core beliefs in ones fundamental unworthiness. At the end of the day, its all about pheromones, height and age.

Granted, my experience strongly supports much of these contentions, and not merely because I have been "unlucky in love". One simply need look at the state of the world, of the monstrous crimes committed against children, to see that this may in fact not be such a good thing. In Mike Judge's film "Idiocracy", there is an opening tableau of the imbeciles of our time coupling and dropping babies out like turds. As one of my old and long gone "lovers" once told me, any mule can make a child. Is it possible, then, that our snapshot selections may, in fact, be a bad thing, in spite of such proclivities within male and female attraction. Just because we shit doesn't mean we should go around making a habit of it.

Or, is it possible, that in God's "infinite wisdom" (he says) these are EXACTLY the couples he wants to mate in order to bring Billy and Little Tommy into the world? As Allan Watts says about himself, "I was the gleam in my father's eyes when he meet my mother. I was desire". To submit to a theory that depersonalizes the depth of love to abject biological imperative lacks persuasion and is arrogant at best. Of course, this says far more about my romantic idealism and hope that our souls have a stronger say in the matter than our sweat glands. I wonder what odors Mr. Gladwell believes causes divorce.

A blasting of synchroncities

1). As I was sitting in my car prior to turning left, the Walk/Don't Walk light was counting down from 22 to 0. As it hit 14, the radio commercial uttered the words "only 14 more days to purchase these tickets".

2). Sitting in my car this morning at work, I watched a crow swoop down in front of me and sit on a hedge. As it looked at the insanity of traffic on Highland Ave., I was struck by the mystery and tragedy of natural selection and the continued rape of the planet by man. At that exact moment, the radio commercial said "You don't want to be a predator in the jungle now do you?". The correlation was startling.

3). WHILE INVESTIGATING SYNCHRONICITY on Wikipedia, a paragraph referred to Carl Jung's favorite saying regarding synchronicity from Lewis Carroll's "Through the Looking Glass" in which the white queen says to Alice: "It's a poor sort of memory that works backwards". At that exact same moment, the morning announcements that were playing over the loudspeaker at work said, "come support the seniors as they prepare for their graduation at a gathering the theme of which is, you guessed it, Alice in Wonderland.

Standing by, waiting for the next series to begin. Time is accelerating backwards faster than we think.

If only Henry Ford were alive today.

The Haditha in the Hamas Charter expressly calls for the extermination of all Jews. The Palestinians in Gaza had a choice between the more moderate Fatah or the friendly and charming Hamas, notorious for such lovely acts as the carving up of a Fatah member into sliced steaks and mailing them to his family. But, hey, what can you expect from a group that actually believes (snicker) in the authenticity of that Mein Kampf precursor "Protocols of the Elders of Zion". Where's Henry T. Ford when you need him?

As long as the Palestinian people accept a Hamas governed Gaza, a government bent on genocide of the Israeli people, Israel will continue its deracination of these and other territories, along with all proxies, friends and sympathizers of Hamas. It will use coordinated raids and, if necessary, total annihilation of Gaza and those who have the unfortunate misguidance to support it.

The Los Angeles Times has a special place reserved for its editors in Dante's Seventh Circle of Hell for their ongoing anti-Jew campaign, which has at its center one sole reason for its existence: the fomenting of hate crimes against Jews in this city by the ignorant and illiterate unwashed. Those who have virtually no idea of the reality behind the propagandist sputum from these assholes are ripe candidates. For the Times to consistently place this story, or for that matter any story of Israel, over and over again on page one, against all reasonable proportion to other human rights abuses, is an affront to decency and all sense of right and wrong. Where are the chronic page one exposes over the murders being committed in Brazil, the religious killings in Pakistan and Colombian human rights murders? What of New Guinea, Malawi, North Korea, Mexico, not to mention the murder of police in Arizona, or if you like, the recent immigration law itself, depending on whose side you're on?

Israel, against all reason, is held to an impossible standard, as impossible and irrational as the anti-Semitism that fuels it. The aim, of course, is to ultimately finish what Hitler started.

Whether I agree with this assessment or not is irrelevant. What is relevant is that Israel will use all of its potency, including thermo-nuclear weapons if need be, to not merely defend itself and its borders, but to remind the world of the dire consequences of spilling Jewish blood, whose cheapness may be measured against the flame darkened skies of its enemies.
