This Land is Their Land, and We Are the Illegal Aliens
by Paul K. Haeder

RE: April 7, 2006

Man oh man, that’s 17 year ago, and boy isn’t that a huge passage of time.

Today, the 31st of March?

“The fight for equality must be fought on many fronts — in urban slums, in the sweatshops of the factories and fields,” said Martin Luther King, Jr., in a telegram to Chavez after a UFW electoral victory. “Our separate struggles are really one — a struggle for freedom, for dignity, and for humanity.” 

The roots of Chavez’s effectiveness lay in his ability to connect on a human level. 

“He never owned a house. He never earned more than $6,000 a year. Yet more than 40,000 people marched behind the plain pine casket at his funeral, honoring the more than 40 years he spent struggling to improve the lives of farm workers.” 

Chavez was once asked: “What accounts for all the affection and respect so many farm workers show you in public?” 

He replied: “The feeling is mutual.”

Well well, into Spring 2023 and the madness and insanity have overtaken all parts of the Collective (delusional) West . . . So, anything around heroes like Chavez and Dolores Huerta, completely lost in the slip-stream of censorship. This schizophrenia, mass psychosis, collective Stockholm Syndrome, Infantilization, Hollywood-ization of education (sic); the Trump derangement syndrome, the China Will Get All the Minerals and Oil and Food psychosis; the slippage of detante, the lingering manure smell of people from the Ivy League to the elite league . . . Rough and tumble idiots with millions in their pockets.

You know, a world where there are no kids marching against Nato, Proxy Wars, against the Impending nuclear war. A continuing Criminal Enterprise and the Protection Rackets, all of that, on top of the mish-mash of self-collapsing arguments, and I can only imagine what the K12 students are mixing with their Pabulum today . . .Thanks goodness for Newsome:

California Assembly Bill 418 (or AB 418) is looking to stop the manufacture, distribution or sale of any food products in the state that contain either the chemical potassium bromate, red dye No. 3, propylparaben, brominated vegetable oil or titanium dioxide.

These chemicals are found in popular foods like Skittles, Nerds, Little Debbie baked goods and Starburst.

Assemblymember Jesse Gabriel introduced the bill, saying in a press release Californians shouldn’t have to worry the food they buy “might be full of dangerous additives or toxic chemicals.”

Unchecked suburbanization. The Military Industrial Complex a la California. You know, this is it for the Collective California. Yep, booze, burgers and bottles of Coke, A-okay for the child. All those video games, all the propaganda mush of Holly-Dirt, and, well, we know what Capitalism is about, no? It all is smoke and mirrors, green washing and green porn . . . And worse.

Is the Newsome or the politicians going to ban military recruiters in California? No more flyover jets during all those Sunny California games? Is San Diego going to refuse nuclear powered subs and carriers and their payloads, too, from entering the waters of Sunny Southern Californa?

Skittles, man, and this is the insanity of incremental IQ plummeting. From grape boycott to Little Debbie muffins.

Dolores Clara Fernandez was born on April 10, 1930 in Dawson, a small mining town in the mountains of northern New Mexico. Her father Juan Fernández, a farm worker and miner by trade, was a union activist who ran for political office and won a seat in the New Mexico legislature in 1938. Dolores spent most of her childhood and early adult life in Stockton, California where she and her two brothers moved with their mother, following her parents’ divorce.

According to Dolores, her mother’s independence and entrepreneurial spirit was one of the primary reasons she became a feminist. Dolores’ mother Alicia was known for her kindness and compassion towards others. She offered rooms at affordable rates in her 70 room hotel, which she acquired after years of hard work. Alicia welcomed low-wage workers in the hotel, and often, waived the fee for them altogether. She was an active participant in community affairs, involved in numerous civic organizations and the church. Alicia encouraged the cultural diversity that was a natural part of Dolores’ upbringing in Stockton. The agricultural community where they lived was made up of Mexican, Filipino, African-American, Japanese and Chinese working families. (source)

Here I am, digging up from the graveyard of Haeder polemics, from Dissident Voice, in my early days writing stuff that got published by “them.”

It makes sense to revive the concept of, we all are illegal aliens, the conquest of discovery, in a time of plagues: i.e. the fools and fascists stopping Chicano studies and Black studies and all sorts of very critical new-revisionist history to flip the script on the White Man’s Burden.

This is at the heart of 50 or 60 percent of Americans. Of every color:

“We are all illegal aliens.” It’s a bumper sticker many of us on the frontlines of the fight against the United States’ government’s assault on Central Americans plastered on our car bumpers down El Paso way.

Flipping the script:

That was in the 1980s.

You know, when Reagan was running amuck ordering his captains Ollie North, McFarland, Casper Weinberger, the whole lot of them, to send bombs, CIA-torture manuals and US agents in order to aid terrorist contras and other despotic sorts in killing hundreds of thousands of innocents in civil wars in Salvador and Guatemala and El Salvador.

We worked with women and children who had witnessed fathers, uncles and husbands eviscerated by US-backed military monsters. Victims of torture, in Texas illegally. You know, what those brave Smith and Wesson-brandishing, chaise-lounge Minutemen of today would call aliens.

We worked with people in faith-based communities, mainstream churches, and non-profits throughout El Paso, Juarez and the general area known as La Frontera. Everyone I met working with in this refugee assistance stint had humanitarian blood coursing through their veins. We were proud of our law-breaking work — we gave refuge to terrorized and sometimes half-dead civilians.

We were called lawbreakers by the Reaganites and the Minutemen of that time. Communists. Pinko-fags. Those were the good old days of low-tech surveillance and simple FBI lists.

But what we did was human and humane, in the tradition of that very universal (with roots in Quakerism) belief in bearing witness and acting upon that which has been judged as unjust and inhumane.

Of course, we were up against the laws of this land and coarse politically driven judges who denied victim after victim permanent or temporary status while seeking asylum in the US.

We have so many stories of people sent back who were at best imprisoned, and in the worse cases, mutilated, disappeared, and murdered.

Guatemalan and Salvadorans, that is. Your readers don’t want to hear the narratives and visualize the descriptions of photos of those victims of torture. Ghastly things happened to teachers, nuns, medical workers and farmers, more heinous than what we’ve heard happened in the cells of Abu Ghraib.

We were there to assist, but more importantly to bear witness to our country’s terror campaign. Some of us got so riled up that later in our lives — me included — we hoofed it to Central America. Kicked around. Wrote articles for the few newspapers in this country that even cared about poor, misbegotten, displaced people of Latin America.

But no matter how hard-nosed we became, or how much we could withstand the photographs of women’s sliced backs and beheaded fetuses, we couldn’t shake the images of the children of torture at this two-story refugee house, Annunciation House. It was full of scruffy looking East Coast volunteers who had hooked up with Ruben Garcia, the House’s director, through Catholic services organizations. It was their stint with public service, their spiritual duty calling. Part of their degree plans. But most were converted and slammed hard by the violence their charges had suffered under.

Those PTSD-induced cartoons those children drew sucked the air out of even the hard-ass border patrol guys who used to “dump” the Central Americans at Ruben’s door at all hours of the night. Who can believe it now, that once upon a time official INS and border patrol officers knowingly let their perps go — knew that Ruben and his volunteers could salve emotional and physical wounds of these tortured crossers.

Their chance at freedom. Except for the piss-ant judges. And the memories of pregnant aunties being raped, their fetuses cut out alive, speared, and the laughing Reagan-loved military punks in the highlands and jungle.

Annunciation House was bulging at 100 people — disheveled lives jammed in. Beans always cooking. Songs. Mattresses and piles of donated clothes. Guitars strumming. Gueros, the white ones, and the Chicanos would help with in-takes — asylum transcripts, translation, dotting all the i’s and t’s. Help with getting jobs. Odd jobs in the community. Help with making sure the refugees didn’t get caught again.

But it was always those by-the-letter-of-the-law jurists helping confound the torture. More than 70 percent of our brothers and sisters seeking asylum in the US were denied entry by some fat cat, cocaine-sniffing immigration judge who usually had a friend in the back pocket of some Bush or buddy of Bush somewhere.

Then it was trying to get the denied victims off to Canada without being caught. You remember, the Canada back then which used to open its borders to refugees.

The judges and politicians and Minutemen all professed, “Send them back. Those aliens broke our immigration laws.”

But “we are all illegal aliens” as a rejoinder went much further than USA’s mayhem in Mesoamerica. We worked in solidarity with the housekeepers, bricklayers, agricultural workers and so many other worthy Mexicans who worked their butts off in the US for little pay and much less respect.

These were workers who crossed the Rio Grande to find low-paying jobs with American families and businesses — working for mayors, bigwigs, even on government contracts. In Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, elsewhere. With a wink and a smile by the American exploiters.

Mojado — wetback. Squatter. Beaner. Illegal alien. These were the more tame epithets.

But let’s not kid ourselves about the genesis of this new round of empowered Latinos fighting against racist laws put forward by the dispassionate conservatives running the ship of fools in DC.

This is not a country of legal immigrants. It’s a country based on colonialists, undocumented white people who helped displace native tribes through broken laws and genocide.

It’s a country based on illegal occupation of native lands and on Mexico’s lands, pure and simple. Colonialists protected by Federal laws that deemed free white people as the only ones who had the right to be fully-fledged citizens.

Manifest destiny was a violent racist act to seize lands illegally. Everything this country’s current anti-Mexican and pro-Apartheid border war proponents stand upon — all that doctrine and those so-called laws — is based on illegally seizing lands of Native tribes.

And worse — laws that “removed” natives. Laws that starved natives. Laws that approved of eradicating native families, entire tribes.

The current massive turnout of students and workers alike in this country’s major cities is a testament to these Americans’ backbone to fight this new exclusionary law — HR4377 — a Washington, DC-inspired racist act that has its roots in the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882.

Many Americans do express a certain humanity and dignity for the people many deem aliens, but it’s not awe-inspiring that some citizens of Denmark or Limerick, Ireland, obey the so-called immigration laws of this country during their initial years as landed immigrants.

Let’s make no bones about the motives of Jim Sensenbrenner, the author of this racist House bill: He sees those brown-skinned south-of-the-border lettuce pickers, linen washers, house framers, and their US-borne children as, what? “Alien gang members terrorizing communities.”

Anyone spouting that we are a nation of immigrants and laws has a disease, what George Orwell called the illness of doublethink.

And until those many white Americans stop spewing that this is their land, a land of their laws, and a land made for Christians, the racist Minutemen will ramp up their gun brandishing on the southern and northern borders. And racist politicians will continue to play on the fears of uniformed constituents and try and pass the 21st Century’s racist exclusionary laws.

I wonder what these modern-day Nazis would say about those children’s cartoons — images of bodies floating in rivers. Blood-soaked church walls. Military men with their M-16s trained on men while others were in their rape hunch. Beautiful jungle birds flying in the sky next to US-paid-for helicopter gun ships spraying the corn fields below. Dead mommies cradling dead babies.

Yeah, I’m an illegal alien. We all are illegal aliens, under the laws of these creeps in high office. Humanity and caring and simple benedictions for suffering so much, those are alien traits only held by a minority in this country of exclusion. Yeah, those creeps on hate-radio and in the newspaper columns and on Capitol Hill, sure, they recognize all of us who see the lies and fight the injustice as aliens.

And the children whose post-traumatic cartoons brought tears to men and women who had been in Vietnam. Simple Crayola colorings brought tears to a county sheriff who had survived drug runners shooting up his town and unearthed bodies.

Yeah, we are all illegal aliens. Except them.

Old bio: Paul Haeder worked in Central America and Mexico writing for newspapers during the 1980s and early 1990s. He’s currently in Spokane, Washington, as an instructor of writing at Spokane Falls Community College and writes sustainability-energy-environmental pieces for the towns weekly, Pacific Northwest Inlander.


Ahh, another old one revived. I wrote a piece for the El Paso Times, but I can’t find it on the web (I have clips of almost everything I have published in hard copy form).

Rhyming Not Necessary But Some Assembly Required – Poetry

Paul Haeder: With a liberal dose of simile, any number of cultural and natural events hearken the phrase, “Blank is like poetry in action.”

This sense of viral isolation, dread and global make-over (for good and worse) gets the proverbial juices flowing of our local and national bards. It’s not a stretch to say there are many people on our coast and farther east who consider themselves to be “poets.”

Rhyming Not Necessary

With a liberal dose of simile, any number of cultural and natural events hearken the phrase, “Blank is like poetry in action.”

Ever see a dolphin in the wild under water? Ever see Carl Lewis compete in the long jump? Ever see a skateboarder compete in an extreme sports competition? Ever see a peregrine falcon dive at over 220 miles an hour?

“Poetry in action.”

Image placeholder title

April is deemed National Poetry Month. Through the work of the Academy of American Poets who saw the success of other celebrations such as Black History Month (February) and Women’s History Month (March), writers, poets and teachers helped found Poetry Month.

The aim is simple:

  • highlight the extraordinary legacy and ongoing achievement of American poets,
  • encourage the reading of poems,
  • assist teachers in bringing poetry into their classrooms,
  • increase the attention paid to poetry by national and local media,
  • encourage increased publication and distribution of poetry books, and
  • encourage support for poets and poetry

Where I now live, the Oregon Coast celebrates writers – poets – through conferences, workshops, organizations and, of course, readings. For now, like the summer Olympics, the live lyrical works and in-your-face performances by poets have been cancelled.

However, there are on-line options. Our own count librarians are putting up more resources up and are encouraging poets (and other writers) to record their performances. AAP’s web site has plethora of live filmed readings and activities for young and old.

I asked the Toledo, Oregon, head librarian her take on the written word’s value in a time of crisis. Deborah Trusty stated: “So, the value of literature is great, as it has always been because it speaks to the universal human experiences. ‘Now,’ whenever now is for anyone, is always a good time for literature and an opportunity to contemplate the deeper feelings and experiences of what it means to be a human BEING.”

Yes, poetry can be dreaded, only because it has been poorly taught and presented.

Portland poet Marianne Klekacz states clearly, “ I think many people are intimidated by poetry, a reaction that probably dates back to middle or high school. Elementary school students seem to get it immediately, because, I suspect, they haven’t had the imagination trained out of them yet.”

She told me she once hosted the annual William Stafford birthday party in January and the April Poetry Month readings at the Newport Library. “My book [“When Words Fail”] was published in 2009. It can be found in the library, but since that is now quarantined, if you’ll send me a mailing address, I’d be happy to send you a copy.”

William Stafford is one of the country’s preeminent poets, one whose work is relevant in this time of Covid-19. His son Kim (also a Willamette University faculty member) was poet laureate of Oregon until last year.

Here are some definitions of poetry:

Mary Oliver — “Poetry isn’t a profession, it’s a way of life. It’s an empty basket; you put your life into it and make something out of that.”

Salvatore Quasimodo — “Poetry is the revelation of a feeling that the poet believes to be interior and personal which the reader recognizes as his own.”

Rita Dove — “Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful.”

James K. Baxter — “The poem is a plank laid over the lion’s den.”

When I requested writers in our area to tell me what they believe the value of poetry is, many failed to respond. A sign of poetic solitude? A dystopian look at the world from one of the country’s most beautiful places from which to create words, music, art, dance and more?

Marianne was profuse in her responses, as was the Toledo head librarian. Marianne recommends Peter Sears’ work – he was Oregon’s poet Laureate a few years ago.

She said, “I got involved with poetry late in life, pretty much by accident, and have wallowed in it ever since. I probably have more books of poetry (as opposed to books about poetry) than the Newport Library.”

Poet Leanne Grabel too recommends Sears. “Peter was a friend. I used this in classes often to teach metaphor. Taught in lock-down residential treatment. Kids loved this.” Here is the Sears poem Leanne adores.

My Emptiness Rides in the Back Seat, Propped UP

Don’t look now but that’s my emptiness smiling at us
from the back seat of the car with the hat on that’s too small.
I give him hats that fit and he chucks them out the window.
Then flops over, face down,
probably laughing his eyeballs out. I prop him up.
Maybe I should get him like a baby chair.
Or tape him to the back seat.
Yesterday he caught me looking at him
in the rearview mirror.
That smile, I can’t take it.
I threw fresh mints back over my shoulder at him
as hard as I could.
I threw the towel at him that I use to wipe the windshield
and almost piled into a Dodge 4×4.
That’s it. I stop the car, take him out, sit him
on a wooden bench in the park, and walk back to the car.
Yeah, just leave him there.
He’s my emptiness, I can do what I want with him.
He’s such a baby. Maybe he should have to do it on his own.
Well, I barely get around the block
when I whip the car around and head back for the little whuss.
I mean, how long can he last on his own?
So I am getting out of my car
when I happen to glance at the back seat.
There he is, my emptiness, with one of those dumb hats on,
waving my car keys.

[“Witnessing War, with Carolyn Forché” — The author of What You Have Heard Is True talks about her political education in El Salvador, by Patrick Iber]

Over at Dissent Magazine, there is a great interview of Carolyn Forché.

[“Witnessing War, with Carolyn Forché” — The author of What You Have Heard Is True talks about her political education in El Salvador, by Patrick Iber]

I cut my teeth on Forché. She ended in El Salvador in the 1970s and 1980s. After, she toured the US — 49 states in a sort of Blitzkrieg of truth telling about the despotic regime in Salvador propped up and trained by USA. Americans doubted her experiences, denying the realities of the death squad imperium of the School of the Americas murder college.

I spoke with her at the University of Arizona where she appeared at the Poetry Center, and I met her years later at a reading at the University of Texas — El Paso. Heck, here is an old Dissident Voice piece I did, This Land is Their Land, and We Are the Illegal Aliens

I ended up working with Salvadoran refugees in El Paso, and that story was written several times, including the El Paso Herald Post which then sent it out to their sister newspapers.

Here, a recent update of that experience with Casa Annunciation, Shifting Baselines in a Time of Climate Change, Systems Stagnation, Life and Death in a Time of Amnesia

Here, some art therapy from some of the children at the refugee center.

Rhyming Not Necessary

Again, there is this huge tension between MFA/masters of fine arts creative writing “poets” living off of tenure track jobs, and those of us who are revolutionary. This poem, by Forché, is powerful, now, and then, 1978:


The Colonel

WHAT YOU HAVE HEARD is true. I was in his house. His wife carried a tray of coffee and sugar. His daughter filed her nails, his son went out for the night. There were daily papers, pet dogs, a pistol on the cushion beside him. The moon swung bare on its black cord over the house. On the television was a cop show. It was in English. Broken bottles were embedded in the walls around the house to scoop the kneecaps from a man’s legs or cut his hands to lace. On the windows there were gratings like those in liquor stores. We had dinner, rack of lamb, good wine, a gold bell was on the table for calling the maid. The maid brought green mangoes, salt, a type of bread. I was asked how I enjoyed the country. There was a brief commercial in Spanish. His wife took everything away. There was some talk then of how difficult it had become to govern. The parrot said hello on the terrace. The colonel told it to shut up, and pushed himself from the table. My friend said to me with his eyes: say nothing. The colonel returned with a sack used to bring groceries home. He spilled many human ears on the table. They were like dried peach halves.There is no other way to say this. He took one of them in his hands, shook it in our faces, dropped it into a water glass. It came alive there. I am tired of fooling around he said. As for the rights of anyone, tell your people they can go fuck themselves. He swept the ears to the floor with his arm and held the last of his wine in the air. Something for your poetry, no? he said. Some of the ears on the floor caught this scrap of his voice. Some of the ears on the floor were pressed to the ground. –May 1978

    So here I go.
    Turning the big six five, next month.
    Medicare, and the other social insurance, that I and my employers financed.
    An extremely modest retirement income.
    What to do now?
    The world is now my oyster.
    I’m free (lol) to do as I please.

    As a recent widower, some have suggested that I experience The Villages, in the sunshine state, and I can cavort (party till I puke) there.
    Or better yet, procure a fresh, new bride, from the Philippines, or Cambodia.
    (21st century’s idea of modern american slavery, anyone?)

    Maybe audit some classes at the local University of Wisconsin campus?
    Or, do the lifelong learning option offered at my alma mater.

    I could revive my music muscles, and try to recapture past glory on stage.
    Tinnitus, arthritis, and hearing impairment, might have some bearing upon that fantasy.

    I could put out a sign that reads, Gone Fishing.

    Spending time with the grandkids sounds great, to me.
    I’m guessing that the enthusiasm of the other parties in this scenario, might be a bit different than mine.
    Curmudgeon type stuff, I believe.

    When I examine my history, it is abundantly clear what we’re the most enjoyable, and fulfilling, vocations I participated in.
    A brief stint in nursing, working with developmentally disabled adults, and being a parent, a son, and a spouse.

    How is this tripe relevant to the piece at hand?

    Two words: Ruben Garcia

    I can’t think of a better way to spend my remaining days, or years, than trying to salve some of the wounds that my ancestors, and too many of their progeny, have inflicted upon my red, brown, yellow, and black, brothers, and sisters.

    I’ve been particularly inspired by our author here, and one “Chuck” Bowden, and all of the great thinkers, and doers, that these two men have introduced me to.

    Unfortunately, my language skills are limited to spewing the bastardized version of the King’s English that is employed here in the united snakes. (Sincere apologies to serpents everywhere)
    And, this is but one of several obstacles, that impede my desired future.
    But, the pull that I am experiencing in this regard, refuses to be denied.
    It’s in my chest, and well as my head.

    I don’t have the background, or the courage, of Saint Chavez.

    But, the spirit is not only willing, it’s demanding.
    Talk about nagging.
    Way worse than my mother in law ever was.

    So maybe this is more of a plea for guidance, than a comment.
    Sometimes (lol more like repeatedly), I have been known to go off script, so thank you for your indulgence.

    But, if you’ve got any spare bread crumbs, put them out there, and I’ll see if I can find my way……………..home.

    Ahh, the oyster is that e-coli poor bivalve, polluted beyond consumption.

    Sixty-five is the new 20 months, diapers and all. Amazing, how your fellow Wisconsin Man/Woman hates Biden but loves Trump. Amazing, no, that there is no equal opportunity hate for both of the feces producers.

    Florida is now allowing for concealed murder weapons without a permit.

    Loving this shit hole country, and Chavez and King and Malcolm X, all of them, turning in their graves.

    But those three would never get on Mainstream Tee-Vee.

    Beat down and broke back, my friend Senor Pescado. Miguel by another Mother!

    Is there still a campus at the University of Wisconsin? Not on-line with Trump U and Arizona State U? It’s coming, Miguel, it’s coming.

    Spare crumbs, well, depending where they are being offered. Gluten free only in California, and deep fired only in Texass.

    You keep up the good work, young man. Maybe this dude will be celebrating that day, when you left the dark warm space of alien life into this gravity hard world of ALIENS.

    Ciao . . . .


    1. Mike Fish says:

      Tell me about it, amigo.

      I’ve heard that “The Villages” offers tremendous discounts on adult undergarments.
      Maybe that’s why, when I think about that place, the words shit show always comes to mind.

      When it comes to Wisconsin based bipeds, I find that most of them hate almost everything.
      Excepting beer, wine, and spirits, of course.
      And, for the most part, The Green Bay Packers.

      I apologize for failing to disclose this earlier, but I am in fact an alien.
      Arrived here in what bipeds refer to as the 1970s.
      I originated from a place called Mether.
      It was a glorious place, where harmony, and affection were the epitome of achievement.
      I’ve been studying bipeds, and the formerly glorious environment that they dwell in, for an infinitesimal period of time, now.
      Approximately, 45 earth years.
      I won’t disclose my age.
      And, it is very poor form to ask an alien how old it is.

      I’ve confined my hands on research to the central section of what is referred to as North America.
      It’s been a frustrating experience, to say the least.
      It’s an extremely hostile, and filthy environment.
      I’ve seen old photographs, and this place wasn’t always this vile.
      It was much nicer here, when bipeds used to live in “tents” and mud huts.
      The furnishings weren’t as elaborate, but the bipeds were far, far more palatable.
      I would even go so far as to say, enjoyable.

      I have been signaling my home sphere, and informing my people, that I really need a respite.
      Unfortunately, the mothership collected my fellow researcher, Fishbone, while I was left behind.

      There is a beacon, west of my current location, which is emitting signals reminiscent of the place from whence I originated.
      Escaping from whizz-con-sin is proving to be an exceptionally difficult challenge.
      And, I have, literally, tons of research materials to dispose of.
      Fishbone, and I, did extensive research into consumer culture, and the mess that it has created, is a site to behold.
      Frightening, to say the very least.

      I continue to be baffled by the attitude maintained by most bipeds, which divides bipeds by tint, or place of origin.
      Mether does not distinguish populations by such odd metrics.
      There are no borders, or walls, or battles, where I originated from.
      We are all Metherites, is really how we “roll.”
      (Still trying to get a handle on this dialect here, so bear with me please)

      I appreciate your encouragement, and learned insights.
      Unlike this location, (blog?) I experience a sensation of what is referred to as “dumbed down”, after almost the entirety of my interactions with the bipeds I have been exposed to.
      It’s comical at times, but ultimately quite degrading.

      But, I’m continuing with my efforts to reach the beacon that is signaling me.
      It’s either that, or dig a hole in the earth, crawl into it, cover up, and hide.

      With regards to the crumbs.
      I’ll be satisfied with whatever I find, although I hear that the seven grain kind might help reduce the need for said undergarments.

      This blue dot does contain some glorious experiences.
      But, I really want to talk to Fishbone, ever since I Mether.

      Best wishes, and Godspeed, to you, and all of the undevolved bipeds our there.
