On Second Commandment, Jews, and Abstract Art.
There will not be much discussion of abstract art in this volume, although some modern art will be considered.  But as abstract art is very much part of our lives, and certainly a very large part of our museums, I've decided to get it done and over with by beginning this volume with this piece, which considers possible origins of conceptual art.  There have been multiple studies on the subject of course, and perhaps the thesis I am about to propose has been advanced before.  I hear that everything has been advanced before.  But as I am unaware of it, I make bold to introduce it here with appropriate apologies to my possible precursor.  I have no doubt that many a connoisseur will find this thesis objectionable, in which case I should warmly welcome a debate, for although I am far less hopeful than Socrates was of truth prevailing through polemic, I also humbly submit to his far greater and far more ancient wisdom.
Before the likes of Helen Frankenthaller and Yv

Have I got a deal for you :-O
What a deal!
Hello everybody! Bob here, and have I got a deal for you! What if I told you there is a religion which gives you unshakeable confidence in your own righteousness? Now you might say, “That sounds too good to be true,” but I’m here to let you know that it IS true! This religion beats all the others hands down.
Just look at how great this religion is:
- Want to hate those who are labelled by a difference of tradition? It’s okay.
- Want to toss logic happily out of the window? It’s okay.
- Want to believe you’re so special that God pointed YOU to the truth but not others? It’s okay.
- Want to threaten adults and little children with the eternal and unquenchable fires of hell? It’s okay.
-  Want to believe that Socrates and Cicero shall perish while wicked, vicious people like me inherit eternal life? It’s okay.
This religion forces others into respecting your right to think in your own terms, but YOU don’t have to res

Fighting Intolerance
My fellow Americans — and Swiss, and Provolone, and even that fellow over there from Tibet:
No more shall we, as the saying goes, stand alone! It is time to let our pressers — I mean, oppressors — know that their rancid regime is about to rind down — excuse me, wind down.
For far too long, we cheeses have been treated as second-class foods. Grains and meats garner all the glory, while we languish half-forgotten in the endmost dairy case. It's no surprise that many of us suffer from low self-esteem! And occasionally, heartburn.
Some people will actually go out of their way to avoid us! What have we done to earn such scorn? We are certainly not ashamed of our history and our heritage as curdled milk. Perhaps there is a subtler, more sinister reason?
(By the way, who let in the representative from Limburg? Somebody, please, open a window!)
Well, no more shall we allow them to string us along; we demand our own thick slice on the pantheon of foods! We are

My eyes have found the bottle,
Half full with a proclaimed solution. Consumption is my body's only need...withdrawal, it's demons kept at bay only by repetitive submission...
The bottle stares back with lifeless, nonexistent eyes...a thousand yard stare only to find me in my own mind, staring at a broken mirror at choices of mere potential...a clap of thunder snaps me from hypnosis.
A sweat grows from the soil of my pours, as my ears pick up the screaming demons drawing closer by the second...insanity is the flare that they so love to follow to my place of solitary self torture.
Closing my eyes only grants those demons the images they were made into, and sleep merely makes them physical unto my subconscious realities...where anything is possible....
Bewitched, all that breathe, breathe to hunt me...paranoia sets in before my vigilance can tell me...I lose track of my location, and the time becomes irrelevant to my struggle and war.
Perhaps blending would serve me? Like a slave for hire

Atheism, what it REALLY is
Whenever I'm having arguments with theists, or when I'm looking up what people think the word ''Atheist'' actually means, I notice how misinformed people actually are about us. I'm not only talking about the religious fanatics, but also about the casual theists, and even many people who don't want to admit that they are technically Atheists. This article is meant to combat the stereotypes related to Atheism.
Let's start with the definition of Atheism. An Atheist is (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atheism#Definitions_and_distinctions):
1. Negative Atheism: Someone who doesn't have believe in any kind of god (either he/she has never heard of God,  doesn't take a stand regarding the existence of god, or simply believes that God's existence is unlikely, without believing that the statement ''There's at least one god'' must be false). In this case, Atheism is simply LACK of theism. This means that most agnostics are also Atheists, even though they don't like to admit it.
2. Positive

Massthink
There is a fever
That can not be contained;
It infects, 
Communicates, 
Embeds like insect saliva
And cooks in poison our brains. 
And when many brains boil as one, fear
Masters
All.

Nosferatu
Loop through and through the cycle that binds the existence of jackals,
of those parasitic fiends. Use what eyes are possessed to witness
why here and now they live and breathe,
sharing the air of our labored lungs.
Strength is the cloak worn by them accompanied by masks
of any required attribute. My only gift in preaching
against them is the acknowledgment of
their endless ability of adaptation.
When boiled down to the reeking sulfuric husks,
those possessed eyes will see the talons clinging
for life to brimstone. Boil them with the fires
they were born in! Reduce them to scale and unholy bone!
Do you not see? Past the smoke of smoldering kingdoms
and legions of fallen souls, where power is obsolete,
dwell fields of growth and harvest,
where the old grows the new, the machine simply never dies.
Have you only two cheeks to turn against your fellow man
before by standing becomes the act of disgraceful cowards?!
Have you not the mind and temple to
combat the wake and pulse of Evil?!

deep-six
My hair is falling out and you can find it everywhere: the drains, the couches, between my fingers, the fridge, underneath breakfast-questing feet, and you gather it up in your hands and ask me to stop shedding, like these follicles are jackets I choose to wear when I am too warm, because you remember I like self-destruction and watching things come out of my body like running feet; but they are like hailstorms, and I’ve only a 5 foot 6 inch bin to cram them in (I wonder if I’ve grown… I’ve stopped measuring myself because every time I only think of caskets, and “will the ground be big enough - small enough - to fit me?”)
I am not worried, so you follow suit, but it is because these root-showing strands look as inauthentic as my face when I tell you the words “It’s nothing, I’m fine.”
(I do not want to risk you gathering me up to ask me to stop shedding)

Leelah Alcorn
Why not accept your daughter?
Why taking her to a therapist?
Making her hate herself
Making her to shame herself
More and more isolated
Did she become
No support from you at all
Not even a single sign of love
And then….
Even after her suicide
You are not able to see
Keep desecrating her memory
By calling her a HE
I wish wherever Leelah is
That her dream will fulfill
Fix Society. Please.
