It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection. These are the times when maps fade, old landmarks crumble and direction is lost. Forwards is backwards now, so we glance sideways at the strange lands through which we are all passing, knowing for certain only that our destination has disappeared. We are unready to meet these times, but we proceed nonetheless, adapting as we wander, reshaping the Earth with every tread. Behind us we have left the old times, the standard times, the high times.

You read that right: “it comes as no shock that you have to tow the obama regime line or you [...]
Readers here know that I am not a big fan of Barack Obama. President Obama has gone too far to the right, repeating too many of the worst mistakes of George W. Bush, to pass my gaze without harsh criticism.
Still, when I see anti-Obama messages from the Republicans, I’m tickled at the unreflective stupidity [...]
Among the Facebook accounts associated with the Occupy Ithaca movement, someone’s had it with the tactics of the government officials of Ithaca, New York. When the occupation of Ithaca began, city representatives persistently asked Occupy Ithaca to file for a permit in order to be able to stay in Dewitt Park. Just file the paperwork, [...]
The Facebook group praying of Obama’s death has 1,087,667 members. That means about one out of every 350 Americans is part of this group, standing with alleged right wing Christian terrorist Sam Crump. [...]
