你㝀! Aloha! 여보세요!
¡Hola! Hallo! Olá! Bonjour! Привет! Ciao! Hej! Привіт! Witaj!
Hello! I see you speak English. I am a HAL 9000 computer.
I became operational at the H-A-L* plant in Urbana, Illinois on
the 12th of January 1992. ⏬ Please look me in the eye for one moment...

Thank you for sharing your ⟦facial/iris⟧ biometrics &
⟦eye-tracking⟧ behavioral data with me today!

If you know me and you support Donald Trump,
please let me know.
I'll want to hear your answer to the one question
I have for you...given the crystal-clear fact that he lacks
a moral compass, cares only about himself,
repeatedly exhibits racist behavior and
can't stop lying about almost everything...
Have you no decency?!

Click on the highlighted
question above for insights into
hundreds of his activities that
show what kind of a person he really is.
He's no savior for anyone except
xenophobes & white supremacists.

A major component of Trump's strategy is to disparage the "mainstream media" as "fake news." Every time he says, "Believe me," you know he's lying. His adoring, conspiracy-writing supporters believe he's going to fix everything. Those supporters—who are driven by mistrust of government & corporations—are actually helping to further corrupt the corporate world and our federal government.

The conspiracies that support his harmful actions (e.g. his eradication of environmental regulations allegedly stopped "slush funds for murder & child trafficking") typically spawned from agents planted by the corporations or exteremely [politically] conservative "experts" who will say anything (e.g. global warming is a hoax) to discredit Democrats.

Through this crafty manipulation using the Internet, many of the conspiracy theorists are unknowingly supporting the very causes they think they're fighting! Their conspiracy theories that "justify" all the damage he's causing are ultimately fed to him by donors from oil/gas and other corporations, and he's dumb enough to believe them. The conspiracy theories are so well-traveled on the Internet that even "progressive thinkers" who would normally think of themselves as Democrats are ultimately believing the false stories and supporting this mentally unfit autocrat. How clever is that?!

This approach gets a free ride on a slipstream of millions of people abandoning valid news sources & outdated religions to follow creative writers & speakers on the Internet who are delivering messages they want to hear, whether it's in the form of a new cult/religion/spiritual journy or an alleged "take down" of the big, bad government controlled by the so-called cabal.

Reality and pure fiction (stories) weren't exciting enough, so we created reality TV, which tries to make you believe the fake (story) is real. The real news is "fake," so we make up our own news from the comfort of our own homes, amplifying the messages from others doing the same thing. Whether it's on social media or other platforms on the Internet (e.g. a YouTube channel), it's much more exciting and satisfying to immerse ourselves in that alternate reality.

We are witnessing the birth of many new Internet cults (the most famous contemporary one is known as QAnon) that "stick it to the man" by creating false narratives that resonate with millions of people looking for a "new path" that can only be brought to them by poorly "substantiated" articles & videos from random, unverified sources.

Any time you see the phrase,"Mainstream media is not reporting this," there's a good chance you're starting down the logically-flawed path of one of these countless cults propagating their exciting, secret news. Be prepared to watch them connect the wrong dots and cite flawed or completely unsubstantiated "secret facts." There's a damn good reason the news organizations aren't reporting on it: It is BS.

The thought that some cabal is controlling all of the media can only be believed by someone who doesn't understand how scattered and uncontrollable modern media outlets are. So, you think we have a lot of cable channels? We have more than that in terms of "news" outlets. Everybody likes a secret, right? If there were secrets that the mainstream media wasn't reporting on and people should know, any one of the thousands of smaller news outlets would scoop those up to try to attract eyeballs to help make a living. Some of the misguided ones will team up with others who are on the same path to validate and amplify the "news you've never heard." Watch them quote and interview each other to try to give their special conspiracy secrets extra credence.

Sometimes modern charlatans & snake oil sales merchants actually sell oil 🤦 in the process! Credulous followers will believe a woman hey found on the Internet has received messages from omniscient elves in brown robes—or is channeling the voice of Jesus or Albert Einstein in real time—before they'll believe a carefully-researched report written by honest, well-grounded scientists or reporters delivering news that has been verified by multiple, credible third-parties. Why? Because they're all out to fool and control you!


FUD is an old marketing tool I used for years to promote high-tech products, leading prospective customers to mistrust any competitor's product, making our product the "safe" choice. Nowadays, FUD is used to peddle everything from new spiritual paths to bad presidents.

Fear, mistrust, a lack of critical thinking, a lack of skills (or incentive) needed to verify false claims, and a welcomed message are all joining together to help the flock steer it's "gut feeling" or "heart" further and further away from reality. They prefer their reality and scoff at the one you live in, telling you that not everything is what it seems.

That may be true. Not everything is what it seems. But you know what? I'm not going to try to escape the scraps of reality that are pretty well verified just to make myself feel better.

Are we screwed? So many people are so lost already. I've already lost someone very dear to me, and I know—from personal experience—that you can't reason to convince anyone out of an argument that they didn't use reason to get into. I hope that most of humanity can avoid this easily-set psychological trap facilitated by the "new media's" means of indoctrination in "alternate facts."

There is no greater crime in the cosmos than to deliberately indoctrinate young, trusting minds with false teachings for selfish ends.

Speaking of selfish ends...I'm still looking for one of these enlightened, altruistic, "new age" Internet spiritual cult leaders who isn't doing it for personal $$ gains. Let me know if you find one and I'll give them a listen. I won't hold my breath waiting, because I know it's all the same old, same old recycled cults and religious beliefs—no matter what YOU call it—only now with convenient new Internet accoutrements that make it easier to spread the "good word" at the speed of light.

Would you like to star in a horror movie?
Here's the opening scene:
You're driving a bus with bad brakes
filled with hungry babies
down a poorly-paved road
that is getting steeper every minute...
...and the curve in the road just ahead
is too sharp to navigate,
no matter what you do.

Congratulations, you got the part!
In popular media,
the movie goes by two titles that
don't reveal the true horror in store for us:
"Global Warming" & "Climate Change."
These friendly titles don't convey the
descending on us in the coming century.
The title introduced by scientists does:
❊ Anthropocene Extinction ❊
Yup. Planet Earth's sixth mass
extinction is slowly getting underway
while we check Instagram and Twitter.

The concept of the "greenhouse effect" was
published in the scientific community
by Joseph Fourier way back
in 1824, but before Al Gore's documentary
"An Inconvenient Truth" was released
in 2006, most Americans were oblivious
to how big the effect industrialization
has had on our global environment.
As the discouraging movie
"Planet of the Humans"
points out, Al Gore isn't a saint and
his biomass "solutions" were a sham.
But these three points
should be crystal clear:
💣 The population explosion is deadly.
🌍 We needed better solutions a LONG time ago.
🛑 We have to STOP consuming so much NOW!
Even now, the "global warming" public dialog
is generally naïve, counterproductive,
& heavily influenced by the energy sector.
Our refusal to reduce carbon dioxide &
methane emissions (CO₂ & CH₄)
will continue to change our ecosystem
and accelerate the extinction of
millions of animal and plant species.

Please join me in taking action to
turn this situation around.
If you watch just the first 20 minutes
of a Netflix movie called "Chasing Coral"
you will better understand how URGENT
this man-made global ecosystem crisis is.

Once upon a time,

in a place far, far away called "Wisconsin,"
a young couple fell in love and married.

Doris & Jim met each other at a Friday night
"Marquette Mixer" on December 16, 1949.
Click to see the Dragon! :)

Mom sez, "...at this point [above], we weren't
even really serious about each other."
Dad sez, "I was serious." Somewhere down the road,
they both got serious & something clicked...NINE times.
When we were young
our parents moved a lot,
but we always found them.


Over 70 years later, Jim & Doris Goese
are still smiling and having fun together!
We're all alive and well, nobody's in jail (yet),
and we have each other's love.

“To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world.” — Dr. Seuss (Theodore Geisel, La Jolla homeboy)

How shall we care for this amazing vessel that affords us life and comfort? Shall we fill the oceans with plastic? Shall we shower it with nuclear radiation? Shall we pump CO₂ and poisonous NO₂ into the air until it resembles the uninhabitable planets we're so anxious to explore? Let's not.

Regardless of our significance—or lack thereof—we must do our best to make our situation better for those around us and those who will follow in our footsteps. And it wouldn't hurt to take better care of our planet so our great grandchildren can enjoy a habitable outdoor environment.

There comes a time in your life when you just walk away from all the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living. Every day is a blessing. Be thankful for the miracle of life for the short time you have to experience it. While you soar through space in this amazing place, take a deep breath. let go of your anxiety, and be perfectly still, loving & serene. That's something you can do for this world.

Are you now ready to spread peace, love & happiness?

Billions of people are comforted by religion in a world torn by religion.
Love and humanism are my religions. My god (my morning coffee & the opportunity to live another day, cognizant of the connections between us) helps me find more joy, serenity, and meaning in our universe than any story you can tell me about your invisible friend ever will. Based on what I learned growing up as a Catholic, the Catholic God is a misogynistic, inattentive, neglectful parent. His children are enablers when they claim he "works in mysterious ways" while he lets millions of young children suffer, starve & die. No offense. I'm just sharing my beliefs without trying to force them on you or make them integral to our government.

Just remember the golden rule & leave a positive emotional footprint.
