I Am Against Wild Animals Being Treated As Pets

January 24, 2022By Barry BlissPhilosophy

I used to think to myself, “Pets are slaves.” I still often think this, though there are degrees of slavery and compliance, depending on the case. I have seen where an animal, in this case a dog, can become close to a human (or two) without leashes or rules or bondage. I have also seen … Read More

I Have Returned to NYC

January 17, 2022By Barry BlissMy Life

Took an Amtrak train to Virginia. Stayed with relatives. It was the first time I had seen them in about 30 years. It went well, but I had to not talk about my music. My singing/songwriting was a taboo subject. I did not rehearse at all, for 5 days. Not sure how long it’s been … Read More

Bitcoin, Mars, and Our Future (Part 1?)

January 9, 2022By Barry BlissUncategorized

Bitcoin. Hold it too long and you will end up with nothing, in regard to it’s value. Soon as the power goes out, and especially once it stays out, the only thing left will be all of the damage done by using extensive amounts of energy (coal, etc.) to “mine” this cryptocurrency. I am not … Read More

Visit Plans, Etcetera

January 7, 2022By Barry BlissCurrent Affairs/Politics, My Life

After cold feet I am again scheduled to visit family. This time I aim to go. Something happened over there anyway, which would have made it a bad time, but all, far as I can tell, is on track now, though of course, life never stops. I’ve not seen most of these people in roughly … Read More

Cancelled Visit to Family

December 25, 2021By Barry BlissMy Life

I am not going into it in any great depth. I had family willing to pick me up, house me, feed me, loan me a nice car, all of that. I just could not convince myself that it was the right thing to do. I realize this is risky, in a sense, but I’ve never … Read More

Uncertain Future, Of Course (December 20th, 2021)

December 20, 2021By Barry BlissMy Life

Last night I woke up feeling nauseous and anxious. I also felt like there was a wave of tears building up below the surface. I made it through a phase where I thought I might vomit, and eventually went back to sleep. I struggle sometimes, to know what to share and what not, on a … Read More

Blogging Consistency and A Plan

December 18, 2021By Barry BlissUncategorized

There have been blogs I have checked regularly, where, if they did not post for a while, I’d stop checking them, or I’d check less often than I initially was. Some people, James Howard Kunstler being one, post on certain days. I always know I can count on a new one by James on Mondays … Read More

Julian Assange. U.S. Wins Appeal.

December 10, 2021By Barry BlissCurrent Affairs/Politics

In a CNBC internet article, I read this morning where the U.S. has won an appeal to extradite Julian to the U.S. Weirdly, CNBC refers to Mr. Assange as an “Australian entrepreneur”. https://www.cnbc.com/2021/12/10/us-wins-appeal-over-extradition-of-wikileaks-founder-assange.html If Assange was an entrepreneur, he would likely be a billionaire, like Gates, and the Google owners. He is a journalist and … Read More

Covid “Vaccination” and Old Friends

November 30, 2021By Barry BlissHealth, Philosophy

I’ve stated elsewhere that I refused to be “vaccinated” and was thusly fired from my job. Enough said about that. I do not know of but one old friend that did not take the shots. There may be others, but I don’t know for sure. I could be wrong, but it strikes me that people … Read More

Gandhi, Myself, and Non-Violence

November 20, 2021By Barry BlissPhilosophy

I’ve read a lot of Gandhi..his actual writings, and I understand and identify with where he is (was) coming from, but the form a non-violent life takes has to be, is required to be, different for each person.  Gandhi understood, as I do, that technically, non-violence is impossible while living in a  body. You walk … Read More

In a way, war has been declared on me.

November 17, 2021By Barry BlissCurrent Affairs/Politics

They took my livelihood. I’ve no income. Did they think I’d comply? Did anyone honestly believe that I would take this dangerous “vaccine”? I know, I am just one amongst billions, no one was thinking about me specifically, but I am included in it’s net. Far as they are concerned, I can either obey or … Read More

Listening to Nothing/The Lord .

November 14, 2021By Barry BlissPhilosophy

I realize that nothing exists, in an absolute sense, yet I personify that nothing and sometimes call that nothing the Lord in Heaven, so as to be able to pray to that nothing.  I figure it is okay, since I am human.  If I am personifying nothing (my intuition, love, truth), then it needs an … Read More

Kyle Rittenhouse. My current stance.

November 12, 2021By Barry BlissCurrent Affairs/Politics

Note, added November 16th, 2021: The following is not a prediction of the outcome of the court case. It is MY stance. While I have no way of knowing, my guess is, in regard to the trial, he will end up being charged with something(s), though probably NOT murder: Innocent. No human is innocent, in … Read More
