Biden’s social policies are in direct conflict with the principles and conduct of every revered figure of human compassion and worth that the world has ever known.
His Doctrine holders have overturned the “melting pot” and installed a theocracy: “Everybody’s different; and should be treated differently — for the Greater Good — and WE will decide where and in what way that should be done.”
I have no respect, and no trust, for a government that operates without principles, and in secret, and for an end only they can shape.
All roads lead to Cornithaca . . . and down the drain. The proof is now in Cornithaca County.
This book will help you keep on top of things until we reach bottom.
I have no idea what is happening – it’s like throwing pennies off a bridge. I just can’t get comfortable – it seems like the only thing that connects my life and art together is pain – it’s painful when I put them together – and more painful when I pull them apart. In 2007 I quit straddling the pain, quit my job, and moved to a rural studio in New York State. I work on creative projects, work on my life, and work on the day-to-day necessities of existence. No cell phone, no social media, no networking. But as I work on the books displayed on this author’s page; I feel another kind of pain — the pain of not working on something else: my printmaking and drawing are being neglected, my poetry output is a dripping faucet, and it looks like I’ll be telling NYFA that the Idea Enhancement Project just added another year to its timeline. When I read what I’ve just written; it’s as true as anything I can think of — but then so is the opposite: I need to process everything that happens . . .

A “what’s that?” bumper sticker. Rural Social Justice is the Social Justice that hasn’t happened yet; and if Urban Colonialism continues to hold its grip — it never will. • Urban Colonialism, “characteristic of, or constituting control by a city over a rural area or people,” is the de facto policy in New York State. As urban authorities co-opt increasing amounts the state’s rural land for their food, recreation, infrastructure needs [and as an “out of sight” dumping ground]; they act as if they are “bringing civilization to the natives.” • Rural residents are ungrateful obstructive, and ignorant people, who won’t accept their place in a City-centric social order. Rural communities are resettled, restructured, and the natives are marginalized, driven out, or destroyed. • In Tompkins County’s most recent Comprehensive Plan: there is no rural community — just a scattering of “urban nodes” in a landscape that supplies food, raw materials, and low-level labor to a “vibrant urban center” — can you get more colonial than that?
