being batshitcrazy ain’t all bad, but it probably works better in Key West than just about anywhere else on this planet …

Professional psychic amiga Gloria Reiser, her soul drawing below, 
Mustang Sally
of Forgottenville, Illiniois (near Quincy), messaged me on Facebook yesterday, re the reputation wisdom pic someone had sent to me a while back, which I sent on to Gloria:

    You may be a bit batshit crazy but you can’t hold a candle to this gal… take a look…

    No, she is not batshit crazy, that’s a noble calling; she is simply crazy and slightly (perhaps understatement) misinformed and overly high-opinion-ed of herself, yet, some of what she says is true, the demonic forces are wreaking havoc in humanity, with people mostly unaware, and the soul woundings also are wreaking havoc in humanity, with people mostly unaware. There is no way to be aware of what you do not see or hear or sense or know from experience exists. There is no way to be aware of subconscious drives unless something brings them into a person’s awareness. I’d be fucking lost and out of bounds if I was not getting ongoing advisories and corrections, and from that I conclude who are not getting that treatment are wandering around like the New Age Fuckawi tribe, which, every time they get lost, which is often, they gather into a circle, sit down and hold hands and close their eyes and chant, “Where the fuck are we? Where the fuck are we?” Christians don’t do that, because they they think they know where the fuck they are, or will be, at least, after they die; meanwhile, I suppose much the same can be said for all other tribes not yet corrupted by modern civilization, if any such still exist …

    I love the fuckawi (where the fuck are we?) tale. It’s not limited to new agers though.

    As I indicated, Christianity and other tribes don’t know where the fuck they are either, but not unlike New Age tribes, they think they know.

    is it worse to be ignorant and know you are ignorant, or to be ignorant but think you know? Lost and know it or to be lost but think you know where you are?

    Better to know you are ignorant, than to think you are not when you are. The angels remind me almost every day of how ignorant I am.

  • Gloria Reiser

    I agree per the better to know comment. Not that you need to be reminded that you are ignorant. Because actually you’re not. Just taking life one moment at a time and listening to guidance.

    I was ignorant this morning that I was supposed to publish the defense of Jesus from Christianity post today at, until a nap dream around noon showed me I was ignorant of that, so I published it. I probably would not have dared publish it otherwise, given the content. I had further email back and forth today with Tim, who looks to me he defends Christianity from Jesus, and time will tell (the angels will say) if what I wrote to him was ignorant on my part. Perhaps ignorant in writing that to him, as opposed to writing something else to him. What I wrote to him was pretty much along the lines of what I had been taught by the angels, but sometimes they prefer me to say something other than what I want to say, or think I should say, and sometimes I hold back saying what they want me to say because I fear their rebuke if I say it and they didn’t want me to say it. That’s seriously batshit crazy. Only when I was writing to Tim yesterday did it finally “occur” to me that what Christians call being “born again” is nothing like what Peter, for example, experienced when he was born again. Peter was changed totally. He died. He became an entirely new person. And it was not in a flash but was an ordeal of long duration.

In my dreams earlier tonight, the angels whittled way down what my ignorant self thought would be cute to use in today’s batshit crazy post

On same theme, school board member Robin Smith-Martin
Robin Smith-Martin
and I bumped into each other yesterday morning. Robin is the fellow who started me being batshitcrazy, in an email about a year ago, written over his school board email address, which caused quite a commotion in unbatshitcrazy circles, because what Robin actually wrote was I was “fucking batshitcrazy”.


Robin told me yesterday about a video Lesley Salinero, who runs the challenged kids program (special ed) for the school district, recently shared with school district officials. Essentially, the video is about how modern education bores many kids to death, tries to turn them into robots who walk, talk and sound the same, fractures with standardized tests, and causes ADHS, which actually, according to the video, is nothing more than kids not wanting to be in school because of the aforesaid.

Here’s the link, highly recommended for all Americans, no exceptions:


I told Robin what the school district also needs to be about fixing is having every student touch typing fluent and Spanish fluent by the end of the 8th grade. It won’t cost the school district any more money, and it will give students skills which make them career ready upon graduation from 8th grade. Robin said Spanish is needed to help kids be able to converse and get to know many of their neighbors, especially in the Keys, but being fluent in a different second language will make them marketable internationally. German, Russian, Chinese, Arabic, French come readily to mind.

Robin also mentioned Michael Moore’s “Fahenheit 9/11?, of which I had not heard, amazingly, pointing hard at the Saudis being behind 9/11, Robin said, only now that USA is weaning from Saudi oil is anyone in USA really trying to get to the bottom of that and good old Uncle Sam is refusing to reveal missing info in redacted documents.
I found this via googling:
One of the most controversial and provocative films of the year, Fahrenheit 9/11 is Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore’s searing examination of the Bush administration’s actions in the wake of the tragic events of 9/11. With his characteristic humor and dogged commitment to uncovering the facts, Moore considers the presidency of George W. Bush and where it has led us. He looks at how – and why – Bush and his inner circle avoided pursuing the Saudi connection to 9/11, despite the fact that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis and Saudi money had funded Al Qaeda. Fahrenheit 9/11 shows us a nation kept in constant fear by FBI alerts and lulled into accepting a piece of legislation, the USA Patriot Act, that infringes on basic civil rights. It is in this atmosphere of confusion, suspicion and dread that the Bush Administration makes its headlong rush towards war in Iraq – and Fahrenheit 9/11 takes us inside that war to tell the stories we haven’t heard, illustrating the awful human cost to U.S. soldiers and their families. Lions Gate Films will release the film nationwide on June 25th

Surely something batshit crazy was in the wind yesterday, because not long before I bumped into Robin, just after leaving Hatman’s unfortunate trial and reaching Fleming and Duval Streets, I came upon a young black man and a young white woman, who had set up a booth on the corner of the sidewalk, pasted with Impeach Obama signs. I paused, said to them, “I think I can get into that but you need also to advocate trying, convicting and executing George W. Bush; otherwise, you are only dealing with half the problem.” I pedaled my bicycle across Duval Street en route to bump into Robin.

Then this Facebook comment came in on two Key West PD officers testifying that Hatman’s van smelled like feces:
  • Brain Cabral I hung out with Hatman,very nice person..clean van also.

    Brain Cabral's photo.
  • Sloan Bashinsky That’s been my experience, too. I wonder if Hatman was so flummoxed by the officers testifying that his van smelled like feces that he lost his ability to think he had to testify they were lying and the proof of that was it was not in their police reports that his van smelled like feces. I have seen really low down stuff pulled by KW cops from time to time, and that leaves me ever ready to be skeptical. Their antics and statement around the visitor from out of state who recently died under their benevolent grasp as he lay face down on South Beach, at least in what I saw of the video, certainly did not give me cause to think KW cops are incapable of lying under oath in a court of law.

Open that link and watch the not very amusing video taking by a bystander, which just naturally ended up in the paws of mi amigos Arnaud and Naja – I had nothing to do with that, but you can bet the conch farm the angels had had a hand, er, wing it.

  • Jacqueline Bush-Holcomb Excellent article! Have you seen my friend David? I never heard back from him from my letter in November.
  • Sloan Bashinsky Have not seen Frizbee David in a while, perhaps 2 months ago? He’s dear to me, but I know there is no way I can change him, or talk him into changing, at least not in the leaving Key West and getting out of his routine sense. An Act of God could do that, though, and sometimes Acts of God come in interesting forms

    Tiny House Village to Shelter the Homeless in Texas

    The project, which is set to break ground next year, will include places for residents to live, garden, worship, and work.
    posted Dec 16, 2013

    In Austin, Texas, a project to offer affordable housing to some 200 chronically homeless citizens is on the move. Community First! Village, which has been in the planning stages for nearly 10 years, is set to soon break ground on a 27-acre property sprinkled with tiny houses, mobile homes, teepees, refurbished RVs, a three-acre community garden, a chapel, a medical facility, a workshop, a bed and breakfast, and an Alamo Drafthouse outdoor movie theater.

    Graham views Community First! as the next step toward solving homelessness.

    Supporter Alan Graham, of Mobile Loaves and Fishes, notes that the price of not housing these folks costs taxpayers about $10 million a year, not to mention the emotional and psychological tolls on the homeless themselves.

    Graham says that, for the most part, local residents seem to be in favor of the project. “We haven’t converted everybody,” he says, “but when people come out here they go, ‘Oh!’ They see a chapel, they see medical and vocational services on site, and they learn that residents will not live there for free. They’ll pay a monthly rent.”

    Graham has been working with the homeless in his community for more than 14 years and cites broken families as the leading cause of homelessness. With Mobile Loaves and Fishes, Graham has not only helped feed the homeless all these years, but he has helped transition them into homes and jobs as well.

    And he has given them hope. Graham views Community First! as the next step in that mission and the next step toward solving homelessness in the U.S.

    As the local NPR station (KUT) reports, Alamo Drafthouse’s founder Tim League is another outspoken cheerleader for Community First! Village. In fact, he calls it “the very first ‘Yes, in my backyard’ project.”

    How about on :-) Truman Waterfront? , sorry I missed you and Joel last night when I brought a traveler by your place who just wanted a front porch on which to lay down his head, to get him away from a KWPD officer who seemed inclined to see to it that the traveler spent the night in the sheriff’s hotel on Stock Island. For all I know, and I’m not entirely joking, the traveler is Jesus – I reported that today, and Hatman’s trial for living in his van, and other stuff in the homeless people not welcome in Key West, nor would be the homeless man Jesus … post at


    Erika is the kind person who came to my aid after Robin Smith-Martin wrote to me that I was fucking batshitcrazy. Erika sent news from down Columbia, South America way, where she and hubby Joel were travelling, that the bat shaman is the most revered of all shamans because he/she can see in the dark, which other shamans cannot do.


    Also to comfort me, Erika sent from Columbia what she said was mural in a public place.


    I think maybe that also was around when the angels asked me to make a prayer for a Divine Intervention of the feminine into USA, which I just naturally then did :-)

About Sloan

Darn, that would take a while. Try the autobiographical pages in the header. Ditto for header menu pages at Hatched and raised there, eventually I ran away from home. Here's a short list: Born 1942; male; spoken for; accused of all sorts of imaginable and unimaginable things, perhaps some true. Live on Key West of Weird asteroid. Publish something most days at, been at that since July 2007. That's heaps of catch-up reading, probably not recommended.
