Peter David
“I woke up dead.
Not only dead...but in hell.
I had always been somewhat sketchy on what the afterlife - were there actually such a thing - would be like for a person such as I. From all accounts and all my imaginings, I figured it would be one of two things. Either I would be surrounded by great, burning masses that were endlessly immolating souls in torment... or else I would find myself trapped within my own mind as a helpless bystander, condemned to watching me live out my life over and over again and powerless to do anything to change any of it. When idle speculation prompted me to dwell on these two options, I would find myself drawn invariably to the former, since the later was just too hideous to contemplate.
I was almost afraid to open my eyes, because once I did, I would know one way or the other. Perhaps I could have just lain there forever. Perhaps I was supposed to. Perhaps that was my true condemnation: to simply reside in hell with my eyes closed afraid of opening them lest matters deteriorate even further than they already had. This, in turn, made me dwell on the fact that every time I had believed things couldn’t get worse, they promptly had done so with almost gleeful enthusiasm .”
Peter David, The Woad to Wuin


Keep jumping around them like monkeys.
The clones,
Commercialized zombies,
And the TV junkies.
Keep throwing berries,
And nuts at them.
Until they wake up
To see what's up
And figure out why
We're laughing at 'em.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“Good morning.

Nanne Nyander
“The nature is out there,

Telling its story. Can you hear it?

It can’t see it-self, but you are its eyes,

Its senses, you are its voice, you can tell its story,
If you can hear it.
Listen!... I can hear it screaming
Loud enough for the whole planet to wake up.
Slow down. Wake up and listen...

Why can’t you hear it?

I call out its pain in a tormented voice,

And wonder...

Why can’t you hear me?”
Nanne Nyander, Silence: Angels and Poems

“Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and Republicans are against deficits, we have deficits? Have you ever wondered why if all politicians are against inflation and high taxes, we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does. You and I don’t have Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does. You and I don’t write the tax code. Congress does. You and I don’t set fiscal policy. Congress does. You and I don’t control monetary policy. The Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president and nine Supreme Court justices — 545 human beings out of 235 million — are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

I excused the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered by private central bank.

I exclude all of the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it.

No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislators’ responsibility to determine how he votes.

Don’t you see the con game that is played on the people by the politicians? Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of Tip O’Neill, who stood up and criticized Ronald Reagan for creating deficits.

The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it. The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating appropriations and taxes.

Those 545 people and they alone are responsible. They and they alone should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses — provided they have the gumption to manage their own employees.”
Charley Reese

“Wake up and smell the shit, folks. This is our reality, now. Things will not be going back to normal. We’ll be lucky, if they don’t get worse too soon. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? I think it’s better to be safe than sorry, but if you want to go home, be my guest. No one is going to stop you.”
Jason Medina, The Manhattanville Incident: An Undead Novel

“Heavens, chile, you gonna wake up awright. To a brand new day. 'Cos de Lawd use de nighttime to wash de day clean!"... Another beloved term left over from her childhood, signaling the time just before dawn, when the sun first begins to stir, chasing night clouds away and painting the glory of eternal rays all over the darkened canvas of the sky. A time of hope and forgiveness.”
E.R. Dinsmoor, Dayclean

“It's when you wake up in the morning next to someone whose name that you can't remember, that you went to bed with a stranger.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“Who best is to judge if global warming really exists?
The people who it affects most...US!
We can see it in our weather; in our crops; in animal migrations; in the haze that hangs over our polluted cities & towns; by the rise in sea levels.
It doesn't take a scientist to see something that we can see on a daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis.
To deny it doesn't exist, is to deny that man has a problem.
Mankind has a limited vision. All he sees are the $$$$$ signs in front of him, instead of the Earth around him.
Wake up and smell the roses!
But don't wait too long because the air will be turning acidic just like our oceans.”
Anthony T. Hincks
