Alan Clements Uncensored ‘Spiritually Incorrect Relationship Incorrect The Great Reckoning’

In a night of spiritual-political satire and activist entertainment, Alan Clements ignites conscience by celebrating freedom of expression and the power of the human heart. A former director of Amnesty International called Clements “one of the most compelling voices of our times.” Critics have described Alan’s spoken word performances as “existentially cathartic,” “enthralling and hallucinogenic”, “a brilliant deconstruction of spiritual and cultural propaganda that addresses head-on the insanit...

How to Achieve Harmony

    The other day I found a book if you could call it that, with its pages barely hanging on, I asked the dealer how much? French Husband looked at the book, looked at me, looked at the dealer and shrugged. He doesn't get the attraction to things on their last leg. He doesn't understand that kind of reckless beauty. His knees don't buckle at the sight of old junky stuff with a price tag.         BUT he does get me. He shrugged, saying, "I am certain it is going to look better the moment you t...

U.S. travelers are certainly aware of the challenges of dealing with visa applications to visit certain countries, and how much simpler it is to visit somewhere that either doesn't require a visa for U.S. citizens or allows for visa on arrival. The U.S. won't allow foreigners without approved visa or ESTA to board aircraft headed for the U.S. That raises the transaction costs of coming here, which makes doing business with the U.S., spending tourism dollars, and supporting U.S. industry more ...

Random Lessons I Learned in 2018

2018 was not the best year of my life and, after chatting with many other people, it seems to have been a widespread phenomenon.
