We trap God


Photo by @brianphone

We trap God,
hang Him
in stained glass,
entrance Him
by organ music
and chorus

We bind Him
by ritual,
tickle Him
by prayers
and train Him
to become our pet.

And we freely
make Him
take off
our guilt
of exploiting
too much,

Of having
too much,
of wasting
too much,
of living
too comfortably
Once the desert God,
jealous
and wild;
now an amulet
on a charm
bracelet.

—Yorifumi Yagucchi

Yet another blog of mine

As if I didn't have enough blogs...

Here comes Blogpil. Health pills from Honduras....

What happened with my abandoned blogs?

Well. This I abandoned for son long. But still, it can serve me as a metablog: for comenting my other blogs. The philosophical ones... I abandoned them because they don't pay. Philosophy is not profitable for me. These days I am more practical. I am comited to offer value to my readers. Who really cares about my stupid opinions? Everyone has an opinion. Opinions are cheap.

Anarchism, in my blog Contraeconomia doesn't pay off. I love utopias, but utopias are not practical.

Critique of atheism, in my blog Reason Prostituted, didn't pay me at all. But my Sangre de Cristo blog (Blood of Christ), is better. Lately I've been exploring the issue of metaphysical prayers.

My blog about promos and services of cellphone companies turned out to be very profitable. That one I'll keep up updating.

The one about Honduras, in English... I became lazy. It didn't pay much too.

My principal blog is now Nacer en Honduras. About various things of interest of Honduras...

I won't forgive my father

Being a good parent is not easy, but I had higher expectations from you, and you let me down.

I expected, as a son, words of wisdom and warm words of approval, affection and understanding. I craved to be understood, but you never understood me.

I thank you for all the material things you gave me, but material things are not enough.

You are a failure as a parent. Instead of words of wisdom you always tried to push your silly ideas in my head, you still keep trying to manipulate me in order to make me think exactly like you do.

But I guess the alcohol you drank when you were younger damaged your brain and temper. And I guess you were fucked up by your parents too, as I am by you. It's a pitiful loop of bad causes and effects. Insane people raising insane children, 'cause you didn't know how to do better, living in an insane world of greed and violence. Being out of touch with reality, out of fashion, living in the past.

But I guess I'm not the son you expected me to be.

We are imperfect and fucked up beings, living in an imperfect and fucked up world. We get hurt, and we hurt, in an endless loop. This is original sin. We fail to ourselves and we fail to others, and we need to forgive ourselves and others.

But I won't fall in the tramp of false forgiveness. For years I've been trying to forgive you, but the resentment is still in the same place, nothing changes, because with your behavior you keep those wounds still open and bleeding.

Instead of forgiving you I'd rather see things in a different perspective, to see the drama of our strained relationship from a third person perspective, without judging anything, from a quiet place of peace and tranquility, like watching a movie; then to bring the insights I had from that perspective in order to let go of all the resentment, and to release the pressure that resentment is putting, in that specific location in my body.

Moonbat

Moonbats, hideous little things.

According to Wikipedia:

Moonbat (also "barking moonbat" and "moonbat crazy") is a term often used currently in U.S. politics as a political epithet referring to anyone that is believed to be liberal or on the left. "Wingnut" (or "right wing nut") is frequently preferred as the analogous epithet aimed at the political right.

Duro trabajo

Hay veces que uno se compadece de los policías. Pensemos en las tareas honorables que ellos realizan mientras tratan heroicamente de proteger a la sociedad: ellos se pasean en uniformes que atraen a las putas como la basura atrae a las moscas; ellos obtienen sexo en forma coercitiva de mujeres asustadas que están desesperadas por evitar ir a la cárcel, y toman fotos lascivas de chicas borrachas y medio desnudas de alguna hermandad femenina. Es un trabajo muy, muy difícil, y uno para el cual solo las personas más destacadas moralmente están calificadas. Gracias a Dios que hay policías allí afuera para cuidar a vuestras hijas y hermanas.

Telenovelas Tontas

Hasta que la plata nos separe.

Odio las telenovelas.

Y sin embargo, muchas veces me toca soportarlas, ya que me las ponen a la hora de la comida. En la hora en la que necesito estar tranquilo, para no adquirir una indigestión, me vienen a importunar.

Últimamente he notada que hay un nuevo tipo de telenovela, a la que llamo "telenovela tonta", en la que se hace a un lado el estilo melodramático y de lágrima fácil clásico de la telenovela por el de la risa estúpida.

Los Reyes

Desplazado ha quedado el galán de telenovela: un tipo apuesto y con aplomo. La fealdad y la ridiculez ya no son obstáculo para desempeñar el papel protagónico masculino. Vamos de mal en peor.

Los roles de los sexos se han tergiversado. Ahora se mira como un ideal que la mujer trabaje. Se exalta la humillación que hacen las mujeres de los hombres.

Cada vez más vemos más escenas subidas de tono en las telenovelas, aun cuando hay niños despiertos a esa hora. Se exalta la promiscuidad.

Se promueve la estupidez como algo divertido.

La mariconada está de moda.

Y no hay quien denuncie, ni siquiera las iglesias cristianas (católicas y protestantes), ya que estas se llenan de mujeres aficionadas a las telenovelas.

Se exalta la cultura burguesa del trabajo de oficina, la figura del ejecutivo o ejecutiva. Pero está desconectada de la verdadera situación de la lucha de clases en los puestos de trabajo.

La telenovela ofrece un entretenimiento vacío que enajena.

Y lo más grave es que sirve de fuente de valores corrompidos, y de modelos de conducta negativos, por lo que no puede pensarse que ser aficionada a las telenovelas sea algo inofensivo.

Givenchy subliminal

Dirán que soy paranoico, pero percibo un mensaje subliminal en este anuncio de Givenchy con Liv Tyler.

Se trata de querer confundir las actitudes que le son particulares al hombre y la mujer.

La impresión general que da es la de Liv Tyler como una mujer con mucha clase y elegancia.

Pero, al mismo tiempo, Liv Tyler hace cosas rudas propias de hombre. Silba exageradamente para llamar a un taxi, juega con una pistola para el pelo como una pistola de verdad, adoptando la pose de alguien que está en un tiroteo, juega billar, y sopla sobre el taco como si fuera una pistola humeante, y celebra cuando mete la bola en la buchaca.

Y escogieron a Liv Tyler, por que siendo una belleza, es hija (supuestamente) de un hombre tan feo como ser Steven Tyler, de Aerosmith.

Y esta foto de Liv con Steven grita incesto.

Sospecho que alguien quiere pervertir al público.

Stop the War on Drugs


Miré parte de este documental en el canal Showtime. Muestra la realidad tras la retórica de la guerra contra las drogas.

Hace más daño el consumo legal de alcohol que el consumo ilegal de marihuana.

El documental se llama American drug war, the last white hope.

Novatada

Parejita en la cama

Se me deslizó el condón durante una relación sexual por haberle puesto lubricante con base de agua dentro dentro del preservativo.

Nunca hagan eso. Pónganlo fuera del preservativo.

So what? : Dick Cheney

Taken from Salon.com

Vice President Dick Cheney appeared -- from Oman -- on "Good Morning America" Wednesday. During Cheney's appearance, ABC News correspondent Martha Raddatz mentioned public opinion polls on the war in Iraq.

Here's the conversation that ensued, including Raddatz's original comment. Video of the exchange follows.

RADDATZ: Two-thirds of Americans say it's not worth fighting.

CHENEY: So.

RADDATZ: So? You don't care what the American people think?

CHENEY: No. I think you cannot be blown off course by the fluctuations in the public opinion polls. There has in fact been fundamental change and transformation and improvement for the better. That's a huge accomplishment.
