ESTAS TONNE: "Timeless Burn Out/ feat. Reka Fodor", "The Song of the Golden Dragon" & "Cuban Dance"

***** EMAHO MAGAZINE: Music in the words of Estas Tonne ... (interview)



This posting will be another favourite of mine as far as guitar work ... to highlight some of his work and honour for the music/ arts honour roll section of this journal will be Estas Tonne. A remarkable 21st century guitarist and self described troubadour, who was trained/ schooled in classical as a child in the former Soviet Union/ Russia, moved to Israel and dropped playing for over a decade, then picked it back up, with strong enthusiasm in New York City after 9/11 ... and now is global with a strong following. As far as genre? ... I dont think there is one, nor does Estas care to be categorized into anything, his playing is also very spontaneous, "unrehearsed" even for an album (which is rare and unique), or get- together such as below in the first video with Fodor Reka ... kind of like a spiritual sort of thing, or like when you just get with friend's and just do a jam session, just letting it flow from within ... describing his music as something like an adventure and journey with a message of the new consciousness and paradigm through music. Where he tells stories without lyrics even to where he would encourage the person listening to create their own story just listening to the instrumental (more above in the Emaho Magazine link interview).

I wanted to focus this posting of Estas on the basic's as far as production and keep it raw as possible, this is a guy that worx well on the street and solo too, being just an amplified 6 string acoustic with all finger picking combining lead, rhythm and bass in one by himself, with a touch of folk, latin, gypsy, classical and rock, to where it makes like a full ensemble. But Estas can just work well in any size venue or setting large or small, so I chose a few below to enjoy. Estas Tonne is the creme of the crop though in his field, and if you love great guitar work like myself, he is a treat! And wishing a fruitful career and best to Estas to come ... so enough from me ... Enjoy!

CHRISTI CRADDICK: Reject's Denton VOTER'S Voice ... The MISINFORMATION of Peoples Perception of Technology ... The "QUAKE WAKE" Edition ... (PUBLIC PARASITES PT.9) & (GLOBAL WAR'N'ING PT.36)







This posting will serve for 2 series of this journal/ blog as well, the "Global War'n'ing" and "Public Parasites" series both, which is past due for this journal, and has been quickly swept under the rug ... of course this week the news is saturated with this Paris terror thing ... and folks are angry and as usual frightened, which I just got so tired of hearing I had to ignore most of the news all week, because it was so saturated and repetitive with this, and the endless talk of how we can better relations with a Muslim terror threat that the west pretty much created, and as usual, how afraid we all should stay, etc. So I chose Chairman Craddick of the Texas Railroad Commission to highlight as a local for the public parasite series, for just outright ignoring the voters request of Denton (a Dallas area suburban city) who voted a ban on fracking in the city last November, and Chairman Craddick pushing the oil/ energy companies to battle them in court. Part of what inspires this posting is the recent wave of earthquakes here in the Metroplex, most are very close to our NW Dallas neighbourhood, I for instance got hit with a couple back to back within a few hours a few dayz ago that were around 3.6 magnitude, which didnt alarm me so much since I experienced this out on the west coast several years back, but alot of folks around me were alarmed, even not knowing what it was in some cases, where I had a couple neighbours call me in the middle of the night, so alot of folks have been bringing this up to me, worried about home and infrastructure foundations, etc .... I touched on this a few years back in the Frackerjack posting's too. And this IS something that ALL business and property owners should be concerned with. But some read and video below, then of course I will add a tad to it after.

Craddick on the Denton Fracking Ban ... Thanx to THE TEXAS TRIBUNE




 *****************************************************************************



***** Thanx for your "support and trust" eh? ... who in Hell is she talking to? ... the oil/ energy companies or the voter's? ... cause the voter's got screwed on this one by the Chairman.


 *****************************************************************************


Thomas Hudson Pickering aka "Ranch Chimp" & "Commie Tommie" (the car is a 2013 ZL1 Chevy Camaro convertible, with a LSA 6.2 liter supercharged V8 and 580 horsepower engine ... it dont fuck around (half- step), and neither do I : )



According to Chairman Craddick, this is all a misunderstanding and misinformation of peoples perception of technologies, so Craddick is a self- proclaimed "Queen of Tech" I assume, and were all just paranoid nuts with conspiracy mind's, eh? This is all about protecting vested interest's, job's, job's and mo job's according to Ms.Christi ... she sayz McDonalds out in Midland, Texas is paying $15 an hour minimum because of this (they sure as Hell dont in Dallas, Houston or San Antonio, and the cost of living is higher here ... imagine that), the resurgence of Texas energy business, etc, etc. Ms.Christi also guarantee's us that she has a seismotologist Craig Pearson investigating this to make sure were all safe, etc. I am sure what credential's this political circle look's for when choosing some of these rent- a- scientist's to evaluate and investigate though ... Ms.Christi herself is a so called oil/ energy expert ... although I just look at her as a generational lawyer/ lobbyist politician who got pretty much campaign funded by oil and gas, riding on the coat- tail of her dad ... Tom Craddick, Speaker of Texas House of Representatives, not a scientist, okay? And since Chairman Christi talks constantly about misinformation ... many Texan's dont understand the title "Texas Railroad Commission", and assume it is what it sayz ... but it has not a bloody damn thing to do with railroad's, and hasnt in at least a decade, the name is just historically and traditionally used, it is basically a commission/ department that is indirectly owned and ran by energy/ mineral companies ONLY (even supported with Texas taxpayers money), for their purpose and profit ONLY.





Since this is ALL about the resurgence of energy business in Texas, job's, business, building a relationship between community and business or whatever, why were so many businesses and property owner's ignored in all of this, and this battle starting (and this isnt just here in Texas, but state after state across the nation) where these oil/ energies giant's want to sue us all and basically run everything how they see fit? ... and this fracking is going on everywhere, around folks homes, schools, hospitals, you name it, with cleverly worded legislation on restriction zoning. Christi talks about business, peoples voices, how we should be heard (which is a sacred Texas value historically, of the power of the voter/ people here ... actually a conservative value at that) when it comes to zoning for health, safety and property issues ... yet out of the other side of her mouth, saying that, even though people should have their voice, mineral rights take precedence over surface. So basically all this negotiating that the Chairman want's to hear is about total control by oil/ energies only ... I mean ... if you deny the people their voice and vote to where it becomes meaningless and there is only one way to negotiate with these folk's ... that dont even sound American, pro- business or Democratic ... nothing more than you would get out of the communist government of China who has ownership in probably at least 4/5th's of all business in their country. The bottom line is Chairman Craddick denied the peoples vote and rights ... plain and simple ... your voice will only be heard their way or no way.

Frankly speaking as a Texan American who is also pro- business, free market, the right of the people and power of the vote and the rest ... I dont see Chairman Craddick as nothing more than another oil/ energy political flunky, who buckles up under pressure and is on a one way street, who ignores the vast array of business and property values as well of this state. As for Denton's oil/ gas business ... it roughly is less than a percent (1%) in royalties of the city budget and about 1% of their property tax revenues. The idea that Texas is a loser without strictly oil/ gas control is more nonsense ... the Texas economy is very diverse in the 21st century in many area's besides these oil, insurance and banking investment giant's ... so the idea that without us kissing their asses 24/ 7/ 365 we will fall into eternal poverty and the poor house is more bullshit. Property values is the other issue, not just rights ... I was pointing this out for a few years here in Texas to many folks ... like the other day when I told folks that home owner property values just in a large suburb like Irving are going to devalue because of foundation issues and these quakes, it will have an impact on many business structures as well, that are not built like say ... structures in California to handle this. I personally know people that have cracks in their homes and foundations because of the recent high activity, my daughter the other day was concerned when she was at her office in central Las Colinas (Irving), when a 3.5 shook everything, wondering if the above floors could collapse of the office building and fall on them? ... and no one in the office knew what to do. While my daughter was telling me this here at home later that day and still tweeting with friends about it ... another 3.6 hit while we were in the living room.

Of course the debate and argument over this, is ... does fracking have anything to do with earthquakes? ... I feel it does have an impact looking at all that is done in fracking, this sudden rise in earthquakes in an area not even known for them, I dont think is just coincidental ... I would bet my Dallas Cowboys training shorts on it, but I reckon folks like me are looked at by folks like Ms.Christi as technically illiterate, militant green and anti- business neanderthal's. And I agree with Chairman Craddick that we are misinformed ... but not the way she is thinking. I myself several years back thought the natural gas boom was a good deal, being at least it was cleaner burning, but had no idea what all it took to develop this energy source, after reading up on the process of extracting this I was amazed, and thinking of the hazards, which I should have expected right away, but the way it was being presented publicly blindsided me ... but I should have suspected something, being that I know damn well there is a flip- side to everything and nothing comes free (without a price), being you have to weigh prices and consequences to anything. To me there is MORE evidence that fracking is detrimental as well to the environment, business and everything else ... than the talk or idea that it does not do or damage anything ... people just dont jump up overnight who are both left and right and wonder what is happening?, they experience problem's, and want to make measures to resolve them, that is why they vote, to protect their business, rights, properties, etc. At least if anything out of this since Chairman Craddick is so pro- business and peoples/ Texan's voice ... she should have AT LEAST put a freeze on issuing new contracts/ permits until the scientific investigation is concluded ... not just issue more and more. Which shows that Chairman Craddick is just full of shit and worx against the majority of Texas homeowners and businesses!


That's the REALITY! ... Word Out! ....


 *****************************************************************************


***** POST NOTE: I was talking to a couple (James and his wife Emily) not long back who gave up on voting and has not much faith I guess in this nation and the governing, and Emily said something like ... "it is naive to expect the government/ politician's to tell us the truth" (similar wording) ... and I realize alot of folks may think like that, but my response to that was pretty solid on what I expect of those who lead and represent the interest's of us all. You know ... with me it's simple, I can understand a need for some thing's to remain secret from the people, especially for national security interest's, or even for politician's to maybe lie about a romantic/ sex affair or whatever simple and personal that isnt really a crime, I'm fine with that. But when it comes to truth and transparency on SERIOUS issues that make and break us financially or otherwise, or has to do with the safety of our environment, preservation of rights for ALL, I see it a little different ... and YES, including rights of investor's and even corporation's, and realize as well the importance of building strong alliances and trade relation's with foreign countries, I'm not a hard- ass. I think truth and transparency is importante ... and I for one expect more, it get's problem's resolved faster and is what we call forward progress, and bring's thing's to light that are in the dark and not understood ... I dont feel that is naive, unbalanced, unfair or asking too much.

My semantics or perception may be different on how I look at our rights and the Constitution, everybody has their way that they see thing's, even on our institutionalized religion's, I dont think we ALL believe the same regardless of how we act like we do, our mind's our INDIVIDUAL. I may in this journal for instance, look at some as treasonist's, and another may say ... well if they are not acting in war against our country or supporting the enemy or whatever ... that is NOT treason. My thinking is a tad different ... I see war being declared in some wayz on our country and freedom's by NOT necessarily firepower/ weapon's, or a military by some foreign country enemy and aiding that country, but maybe strong money controlling interest's in our own country, that may contaminate our rights and liberties ... which is in my opinion also necessary for our security for us to notice. I may look at some certain corporate or banking interest's as an enemy  because of certain action's/ moves ... unless one can prove to me that an entity like such CANNOT possibly be an enemy ... I dont buy it. Absolutely these oil/ gas mineral companies should have rights, and some rights are more importante than other's. BUT the bottom line is, that doesnt mean that everyone elses rights mean nothing ... there has to be checks and balances for both the small and large investor, at least that is supposed to be what this democracy was intended to be, which gave us faith in it to begin with, and why we have a balanced judiciary system with laws. And even when someone buys a small property/ home, business, etc ... they dont do it expecting to just have folks run over it anywayz they see fit either, and even they are investor's and contributing to our economic success as a nation.

I am the same way on our gun rights ... and in these times I feel the CITIZEN'S can never have enough gun's (This is what you face when you lose gun rights and other rights start to deminish **** see last paragraph and videos), the way those running our country been doing to it, and to our Constitution/ Rights and economies ... actually legislating open corruption and legalizing criminal activities even concerning OUR MONEY and prepaid safety nets, properties, and rest that are OURS to begin with! And I realize that when the second amendment was wrote, they had maybe a different idea of what maybe a well regulated militia should consist of and what it's function should be ... but one thing we can agree on ... is that it DID mean that IF there is even domestic interest's that are contaminating our government and the proper function of such, they need to be dealt with, and IT IS the citizen's responsibility of this nation, and a militia maybe necessary even to maintain order, or preserve our rights, liberties and country from any possible tryrannical contamination in our system ... cause IT CAN HAPPEN ... history all around the globe and humanity shows clearly that it can. So for me just sitting around passive in my safe zone without observation and acknowledgement of what may be happening, is also naive. So in that respect, I dont live in some naive fantasy illusion ... history shows to also expect the unexpected at any time for any reason ... so we ALL have responsibilities on that end too, and if we are not ready to act at the drop of a hat, that is when we lose. To me, it is odd or even politically masochistic to some extent for ANYONE to EXPECT that we get lied to by those who are paid by our government/ revenues/ taxes to do a job and fairly represent all interest's, and who our own families protect militarily/ defensively, a job that their all well compensated for at that, yet expect to be lied to and cheated, and to not hold anyone accountable for even incompetence. I will never understand that way of thinking and passive thought.

DONTRE HAMILTON: "Excessively BEATEN & GUNNED Down" ... America's SOCIAL COLOURS & it's Gang Mentality ... "Dressed to ARREST" ... The "Polo Shirt & Dockers Pants" Edition ... (POLICE BRUTALITY PT.20)




Dontre Hamilton (dressed to impress)




(dressed to arrest)


Part 20 of the "Police Brutality" series of this journal/ blog will be to examine the death of Dontre Hamilton, and of course another officer that basically got away for now with murder. With all due respect to Dontre's familia here, the part in the posting title being about "beaten & gunned down" may seem harsh, but the reason for this title is to show accurate wording on just what happened to Dontre, because regardless of the twist's/ spin's or fashionably acceptable media wording ... this man was NOT a criminal, and done nothing to deserve the extreme beating and multiple gun shots that were handed to him by this police officer. I would want the wording to be accurate if this were my own child or familia member ... does it enrage people? ... of course it does ... and should, it would be improper and an insult to Dontre and his familia to sugar coat this, and try to paint some twisted politically correct version of the reality of what happened. First to open this posting will be some words from Dontre's brother Nate below ... then I will add my part after.

Which photo of me would some "beat cop's" be quicker to look at and try to profile?


 *****************************************************************************

***** NOTE: Right now especially in America this is a very importante subject of concern for ALL people, including even those police officers especially that do a great job and love their job's and serving their communities, who there is NO issue with them ... but some of the higher ups in their department's that have political motivations and obligations are different, making the situation more like instigating a war on people instead of bettering relations. For police it allows them time to look over the situation that they are in and push themselves for reform's in their departments and improve their image, from those who disgrace and misrepresent their shield's. For the citizen's it's also importante to attack this on every level you can, WHILE we can, since so much of our rights are being attacked and manipulated by the big money powers, even taking advantage and using our political representation, while holding their political career's as hostage. But this sort of thing has a slippery slope to it, especially with the added security we need in our cities these dayz due to international and domestic problem's such as retaliatory terror attacks, or other thing's that danger all, so making sure we take care of home and ourselves is importante as job#1 ... this is one of those thing's that will have an impact on all of us, not just poor or people of colour, it will grow and escalate further and further. I encourage any reader of this particular series, to at least run through this entire series, to view some of what is happening in our country ... those who know me and I talk with daily here locally in Texas and others, I am able to even get more detailed and personal on related subject's, than I can on this public blog/ journal on what is needed to get done, and want to hear input and suggestion's from other's on what is needed to do to improve the condition, because there is alwayz need for improvement.

 *****************************************************************************



Reading up on this case and looking at the autopsy report linked above, there is no way you can say that this officer (Christopher Manney) simply reacted in self- defense, as a matter of fact ... that is why the police dismissed/ fired him, they said of course that it was simply against their policy, calling it an interdepartmental charge of violating "core values" (imagine that) ... but it is a Hell of alot more than just police or policy codes, so that press release from police official's is outright bullshit and not good enough. Plus they as alwayz want to exempt themselves from any responsibility/ liability/ accountability, so when (and ONLY when) it comes down to outright MURDER of an innocent citizen ... they start engineering wayz and words to distance themselves. Simply firing this officer does not a goddamn thing, but let the officer go back into some community and get hired by probably some fly- by- night security service and get a job as perhaps "captain" or similar, strictly because of his so called law enforcement experience.

Looking at the number of hits to the victim (Dontre) and especially where those hits were directed, just from the officer using his night- stick alone, shows that this officer was focused on killing this man ... being orchestrated and premeditated, then on top of that, if those multiple blunt hits to the skull didnt kill him for sure, he shot Dontre 14x times at close range in all critical areas top of the body, and even after he is down, more in his back ... no way can you survive this ... it was more than excessive ... it was extreme hatred/ anger, or more like a revenge killing/ execution (without even any revenge motive) ... so it is far from not standard procedure, but any procedure ... this was just plain slaughter ... nothing else, with laws designed and inadequate police training to make it all legal. And listening to this officers radio call in after he slaughtered this man, calling for help because he got hit with his own stick, is cowardly and disgusting at least ... and a display of emotional and mental illness. After you beat this man to a pulp, there is not even any need to shoot him as well.

They will say that Dontre grabbed the officers night stick and hit him ... looking closely at this, it was most likely because this officer was so radical and first beat this man, that Dontre out of just fear, had to grab the stick from the officer, knowing what this officer was going to do to him. With my experiences in these matters, I would even question if the so called "hit" on the officer was even intentional or even a hit, as I point out what qualifies as assault on an officer in this series also, meaning that just putting up your hand to cover your head from a hit/ blow is technically assault, or grabbing the night stick while in swing to your skull to prevent it from hitting you is also technically assault. The only cause for this officer to shake him down was a report from people at a Starbucks coffee shop, that there was a "black man sleeping on a park bench", as a matter of fact ... other officer's that previously answered this so called complaint, checked him (Dontre) and walked away. According to report's, Dontre even had an apartment where he lived alone, according to autopsy results ... no drugs or alcohol in his system ... why would he be sleeping on a park bench? ... maybe he wasnt even sleeping ... maybe he was depressed mentally or other reason's ... where is the public threat?





Dressed to impress ... most acceptable in society




Dressed to arrest ... least acceptable in society


The familia of Dontre should be outraged, the American people should be outraged as our leaders try to drive our standards of living and wages into the dirt, then driving citizen's into likely victim's of this type profiling, prejudice and hatred. To try to make us think that this is correct and fashionable to attack citizen's based on this. They think that people will just pipe down and wear out, or will just feel sorry for these officers with enough media coverage ... but it wont work, and wont happen, as it never did in the past and wont happen any time soon. Because it's not just wrong by any written standards or laws ... but by nature, so to resist and fight this is in order, and to fight/ battle this is Democratic and what this Republic is about and dies for if necessary, and this familia of Dontre and every other victim and citizen's should go at this until there is change in legislation that allow's this to happen.



Oakland/ Bay Area




Chicago


Dontre's crime was nothing more than what they term now as a "quality of life" crime, and this is coast to coast in America with many death's ... being dressed basically to arrest is the "probable cause" here or "reasonable suspicion", he didnt dress in this case to impress, or to look socially acceptable to probably the folks at Starbucks coffee while they may be pumped up with caffeine wearing their polo shirts and dockers, and when your a person of colour, that even add's to the paranoia ... some of these folks are the same kind of folks that would cross the street if they see you, just to avoid any close contact with you, because of your colour or dress/ attire. This is exactly the social colours (like gang colours) and gang mentality that we have more of in 2015 America with its love of corporate greed, correctness, and neo type communism and fascism is all. Just an updated version of what we had in the past and repackaged into more pop- culture acceptance and force- fed by legislation through politicians and their financial supporter's, who twist our thinking with their word's through media.

POPE FRANCIS: "Emissions Mission & The 15 Diseases of The Roman Curia" ... A CALL for ALL to Download Your THINKING APP to Upload Your BRAIN CAP ... (GLOBAL WAR'N'ING PT.35) & (PUBLIC PATRIOT'S PT.36)






This posting will be to highlight some of the work and efforts of Pope Francis who has been alot more action than talk in his little time as Pope, and will serve 2 series of this journal ... "Public Patriots" & "Global War'n'ing" both. First some newsread below from Democracy Now and The Washington Post, then I will add my part and why I chose to put him in these series of this journal, and the importance of his work.

***** NOTE: I tend to call these mega religions "institutionalized" more often than "organized" because they seem on the other hand to keep the human mind "enslaved" to a degree, or are at least designed to do so. In other word's, I figure if a person truly believes in a higher power of the universe that created them in it's own likeness, given our natural given instinct's and looking at the universe and nature as "creation", and knowing that the "mind" like the "universe" is alwayz "expanding", it would make common sense that it is also our "job/ responsibility" to liberate and expand our own mind's, not to keep them institutionalized and simply bowing to some other human who claim's that God put them in charge of everything, and you are basically "their" trained dog. The smaller offshoot's of these belief's, such as what we may look at as "radical extreme" branches, or what I call "fundamoralist's", I just simply look at as "cult's", similar systematic set up, but personalized to a specific hatred, cause or political agenda.

Thomas Hudson Pickering aka "Ranch Chimp", "Commie Tommie" & "Skool" (short for old school) to kid's locally



Pope Francis' work is so importante, because anytime you can get a major figure in a position like him to bring to light problem's that we have and at least force them to get addressed in some manner is a positive for everyone. I myself am not religious and actually loathe these mega institutionalized religion's as you can see throughout this journal ...  but the reality is, is that this religion has well over a billion people worldwide, and million's of people that depend on words of advice from this leader, millions love him, and cherish every word they can from him ... so what he has to say is not only a wakeup, but enlightening, and food for thought. In todayz society of technological dependency, you also have many that almost need to download some type of app to their smart phones it seems, just to think, which in turn in a way enables them to upload their brains/ thinking unfortunately. So much out of religion's leader's you hear the term "God's creation" ... yet, you see almost a cult mentality of destroying that "creation" that they casually and pretentiously claim they have respect for, and many religious folks and leaders spend so much time trying to make excuses as to why they feel a need to destroy our natural environment like a relentless pursuit of some sort to level's of outright insanity and poor judgement. In this case the Pope is trying to at least do something about our emissions as one of his missions. Many today that are so called "leaders" or "elite" whether in the church, government/ politics, finance (the "3 Entities" of world powers), have spent decades with endless nitpicking, bitch fights, and tossing our global warming issues on the back burner, with one runaround after another, and not much of a damn thing getting done, and hardly anyone in these position's want to say what need's to be said.







The Christmas address he gave to the governing council (Curia) of the Vatican was really a good slap in the face and long past due, as far as the 15 diseases that they are plagued with. I am sure several of these deadbeats today only wish that this Pope would have never been elected. Do some take it as an INSULT? ... they should, and they deserve it! While they were sitting on their royal asses expecting more of the centuries old blessings and ass- kissing from the Pope, they got a swift kick in the ass as a nice lil Christmas gift. Many of these folks in this order look lifeless and half dead, as if you would need a damn crane to get them off their asses, not to mention do any damn thing worthwhile. This institution has been largely a worthless disgrace to most of what it claim's to stand for, where you have over a billion folks worldwide who been financially and spiritually feeding it and accepting it's incompetence as far as addressing even many of the social need's of todayz society and what's needed as far as leadership, and all this pressure of recent from the Pope on many issues and criticism could not have come at a better time, when we are saturated worldwide with issues that need atencion. The Vatican is a very influential power and well soaked in world politics and money, and has shown to not live up to a damn thing that is required of it ... to those who support it. So someone needs to crack the bloody damn whip ... those Holy men in this order that feel he is too harsh ... look at it as a type of Bible lesson such as when the Nazarene Jesus figure cracked the whip on the money changers in their Holy surroundings.

Of course even though millions love the Pope and really appreciate his work and message, you also have many that have done nothing but criticize the man, such as these evangelical fundamoralist type cults like here, that frankly dont do a damn thing positive, but try to sell tabloid type media horror stories, those who look for devil's under every rock, preach constant doom and gloom, call folks like the Pope the usual ... like being a Marxist, Commie or anti- Christ, etc, etc. I mean after all ... isnt this Pope trying to at least do what you say you admire so much about your Messiah/ Christ figure Jesus? ... mingling with average folks as well as those higher up's trying to enlighten, being more socially acceptable even to those in need, those who may be in the lower classes or even socializing with prostitutes or those condemned by the government and church ... a church/ synagogue, that even Jesus according to writing's and Gospel loathed and its institutionalized religion with passion ... the same type clergy that ordered the govenment of Rome to execute him (according to YOUR OWN hand selected scriptures/ canon from Roman leader/ Emporer Constantine and the Nicaea council, and even popular public/ church sermon's). Those religious fundamoralists like above or within the inner order of the Vatican are exactly the same types that would persecute and execute Jesus again if he was around in the 21st century.

NAOMI KLEIN: KEYSTONE- XL = DOG BONES- FUN SIZE ... The Fossil MIND of Fossil FUEL ... The "RUBBISH IN, RUBBISH OUT Job Mob" Edition ... (GLOBAL WAR'N'ING PT.34) & (PUBLIC PATRIOT'S PT.35)





This posting will serve both the "Global War'n'ing" and "Public Patriots" series of this journal. First to highlight an interview on "Democracy Now" with Naomi Klein, where she point's out problem's and truth's concerning this big news and political controversy over this Keystone XL Pipeline extension (New York Times newsread and video). This is also very importante right now, because understand that when this new Congress comes in January 2015 dominated by GOP ... I expect to see some of the most fast- tracking anti- environmental legislation being rushed through the Congress and Senate, so fast, it would make your head spin, if it goes the way I suspect it will ... so hope that I am wrong. I expect them to really come out big- time on especially this anti- environmental thing, as far as getting as much legislation passed as possible, trying to take property rights, regulation's and everything they can down ... why? ... because there is a shitload of money to be made by a handful of folk's ... not the majority of us/ people though. But I also wanted to include this posting and Naomi in the "Public Patriots" series, because of her stand on this issue and a couple other thing's that I strongly agree with her on, especially this forced globalization rubbish being marketed through this neo corporate global communism of today, that I myself touch on so much throughout this journal. So she is into alot more than just environmental issues, and should be heard out. So first, the "Democracy Now/ Naomi Klein" link below with some transcript and video ... then some word's I would like to add after.

Boehner: Keystone XL veto would be like calling Americans 'stupid' ... Thanx to THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER







(Thomas Hudson Pickering) Ranch Santa and his buddy Charlie (dog) Christmas 2012 ... aka "Ranch Chimp" & "Commie Tommie" ... and Merry Christmas ... with some Holiday music here with a twist of humour



I actually agree with House Speaker Boehner above on part of what he sayz about American's being stupid ... I mean, he and his party should know so well, eh? ... being that we vote for so many of these worthless types to represent in Washington, as well as believing the bullshit that they feed us ... and U.S. is the best of the best when it comes to manufacturing BULLSHIT. The latest bullshit is what bring's me to this part of this posting ... I mean ... all the Hell we been hearing on this Keystone Pipeline expansion is ... "jobs, jobs and mo jobs", like a broken record at that! {: ) The idea that this would even make ANY significant impact on job creation is REALLY stupid! The figures that mainstream media's and politician's supporting and rushing this expansion, has been over 40,000+ job's. What the real truth to this I would bet end's up over a couple year's, is MAYBE some construction job's, where they beef up the figures saying that the job's will be created by these worker's buying more burger's and fries, clothing, or other item's ... being that it would sustain some existing job's in those service and retail areas ... NOT CREATE job's ... there is a difference ... they slice and dice the figures and feed you some newly calculated and manipulated figures as usual is all. In fact ... as I have stated year's ago in the start of this journal ... looking at all the REAL math when it comes to job's ... you CANNOT get out of this job slump the way we are going ... period ... I said that 6 year's back ... and it should be evident by now. There is no bloody damn way with the 100,000+ or so new folk's and graduates entering the workforce annually, immigrant's being brought in by big money to replace American trades and manufacturing worker's as contractor's, and all the newest automation's in production, manufacturing and service, with the rate of TRUE unemployment, and the million's of lost job's over the last decade, that you can solve the job's issue the way we do thing's, NO MATH will show that you can. So blow off all the job's talk nonsense besides maybe refineries and such like on the Texas Coast, and Texas already has alot down here as it is.

Bank on it ... that there is NOT ANY movement to create job's with our overall politic's in this nation, if there WAS, they would be doing something about the manufacturing sector's and infrastructure renovation's or related ... WITHOUT bringing in contract worker's at discount prices from China like they done in California, saying they couldnt find welders in California (see ABC NEWS link), after they locked in the government contract money. They couldnt even find welders in neighbouring Oregon, Arizona or perhaps Nevada either?, to where they had to go clear across the Pacific Ocean?, that there show's you just how full of shit some of these people are in our government, and if it was up to me, I would take any loss fee's/ expenses out of their damn salaries, budget's and bonuses! Which now you see the problem's with even that new Bay Area bridge! ... and check out some of the bonuses that are shelled out on thing's like this! ... but, that's about what their idea and vision of "globalization" amount's to. We have a good infrastructure design set up in America, however ... we are in desperate need of renovation's/ repair's to keep it up, of ALL our port's (air and sea), bridges, and road's especially in every major metro area across the nation, and especially in the northeastern corridor. IN FACT ... to be more honest ... the big money does NOT WANT to create too many job's ... they want to keep the job market tight, and worker's desperate and scrambling and willing to work cheaper and cheaper and to push more austerity ... that is the ONLY "job's plan" that any of these folk's have credibility in creating, period. The treat's or benefit's that would come from this expansion pipeline is basically more dog bones getting tossed to American's, while these energies investor's make record more billion's ripping what remaining earth, forestry and wildlife we have left, we will end up with nothing but a few more dog biscuit's tossed to us, and even more smaller, like when you buy some candy and they sell you a smaller size for the same price and call it a "fun size". This thinking and expanding the mass exploration and extraction of fossil fuel's is just fossil thinking, period ... and in time will be buried with the rest of the dinosaur shit. We actually treat, reward and give more respect and atencion to our dog's/ pet's than what our Washington representation overall or these international neo corporate communist's give to us ... so buying more of the mainstream political is stupid once again on our part.

Unfortunately like everything else in this mess of today ... it has turned political ONLY with no practical and reasonable thinking ... so much for instance was riding on the political career and aspiration's of Senator Landrieu (LA), and scrambling to get votes from the Democrat's to rush this through. You may think it's a victory for the environment since it didnt pass the Senate narrowly (1 vote) the other day, or because President Obama vowed to veto it when it comes to his desk. Well ... it is only a temporary victory, but nothing to get excited about, believe me, they will push this through probably after the first of the year. The thing is, they already have pipelines and production galore, all this is about is boosting production and flooding the market's. President Obama summed it up perfectly when he painted it as simply Canadian oil (and not even really oil, since it has a shitload of work to be done on the tar, to even get it on the market ... this is basically garbage, or rubbish in and rubbish out) ... being pushed/ pumped/ fast- tracked through our country via pipeline to the Texas Coast and sent off to other areas of the globe ... that's about it ... NOT to bring down our prices at the pump, and if the prices do drop as they did in this recent short period (the recent large drop isnt a result of production as much or like the late 1990's, but mostly because of unregulated market speculation), it hasnt a goddamn thing to do with politician's or a slower pipeline, transport, production or related nonsense, it has to do with the global market ONLY. And like every other market will go up and down like a yo- yo. There is also an increase in risk with these low budget type expansion's ... whether accidental or being that there may be attempt's to sabotage these pipelines, they cover alot of rural areas and have alot of vulnerabilities, and easy accessibility with not enough security ... with the rise in rebellion toward's America for instance for whatever reason by whatever group, how long will it be before someone decides to use this as a war strategy against us?

Some may think ... what the Hell is the difference since we already have mega pipelines and the areas of Alberta are already torn and ripped to shred's, might as well just go for the gusto and pump it faster, eh? NO ... we should delay it and delay it and add every obstacle in it's way we can relentlessly ... besides ... didnt they say they want to love us more and create job's that sustain over time? ... well then ... pumping more and working on it faster will just get that area all stripped quicker, then they will move to the next and the next and next (and as your cost per barrel go down from the flood of oil, it will have an impact on every invested dollar of business that bank's on this market and industry, which alot can lose their asses as a result, and have another recession because of such). So there, slowing it down will preserve the current job's we have, eh? ...  no ... ya'll dont want to hear that angle, or other transport idea's ... only the cheapest and quickest way WITH minimal employment ... whatever can boost ya'll's profit's ONLY. And we will have to attack this over and over and over, because they ARE NOT going to stop, this posting and pipeline is about only one area in one continent and country, they have plan's to extract every bloody damn thing they can globally ... and in a hogwild manner at that! You HAVE to watch them, regulate them, fine and penalize them or whatever you can ... why? ... because they are out of control like any addict. Let me make it simple here for the person that doesnt keep up with this that much ... these folk's are similar to those crack and meth addict's that run up and down the freewayz and street's in the city, or on all the rooftop's of buildings, breaking into the street lights and air conditioner unit's to steal the copper wiring, so that they can get that next bump/ hit of dope ... they like the addict are desperate and out of control, and will rip apart anything and everything they can to get their fix/ money, or like a gambling addict at the tables in Vegas, that will borrow on their home and saving's to try to get lucky cause they are so mentally intoxicated they "feel" lucky. We have to enforce strict laws and regulations in our major cities as far as being able to sell these stolen metals to recycling companies ... the same with these folks raping the Earth ... you have to have tighter laws and restrictions on being able to just do what they want, or they will take every damn thing you have.

Another thing on the last note concerning this new- wave addiction with new wayz to drill, mine, frack and the rest ... we commonly look at these folks and what they do as being heroic almost, saviours of civilized humanity, go- getter's, even elite achiever's or whatever, for peddling these energies and ideas to us. This is ALL incorrect and a blind understanding of what some of these action's and those are ... there is no long term benefit in what they do, nor even innovative, creative or unique thinking, and there sure as Hell is not a damn thing elite, creative or anything of any value of these folks that knowingly and relentless destroy and damage everything in their path for their personal gain with not even a sliver of regard for nature or much else, many of which just made a bunch of money more or less by gambling and rigging the system with their money. Many of these paper and plastic type elite folks that we praise and even admire today are parasitic ... a type of vermin if anything, they are no more elite or have any value, than those who may break into, loot, and destroy businesses in their "own" communities while protesting ... you wouldnt look at those as elite or true leaders, any more than we should look at these that recklessly destroy our environment, communities, cities and rural areas as such ... so you shouldnt look at these other's that run these industries and their political pre- paid flunkies (politician's who even many display severe weakness, lack of integrity, and are sauteed in corruption) as "elite" in ANY way or definition either for their proven/ shown action's of just being destructive and trying to influence and lead all of us through their propaganda and horseshit to think like they do. I would know ... after all ... I actually admire and praise those who are TRUELY elite, creative, with leaderhip qualities, those that are strong, rugged individualism, have great business and innovative ideas, and those who have superior qualities about them, as I point out all through this journal.

I'm not a guy that would throw a brick through an oil company window, nor do I drive one of these electric car's, or have a scientific background or related ... so I'm not even hardcore on this. I realize the importance of oil production and our massive petroleum need's, damn near everything we wear and use comes from it, BUT ... what we are seeing here is out of control and insanity ... in other word's ... this is more about GREED than NEED. I also am disappointed because I listen to the energies investment programmes that market this madness, when there is hardly any talk on them concerning other energies investment's besides fossil fuel's ... and the fact is ... that the future is all about greener type energies and resources ... and THAT should be marketed the most, and to any serious investor's. We will have to change the way we do thing's in this area, the destruction we are causing to our planet has been enormous over the last century ... even if global warming WAS NOT an issue ... it is clear that we are destroying our planet with this madness and this "extreme energy" as Naomi would put it. I also hear talk because of this severe snow and cold like up in Buffalo (NY) and the north U.S., people saying that this proves the globe is not warming ... this is NOT true, this IS EXACTLY what would happen if the Earth was warming ... what do you think will happen when the weather pattern's change and storm's are stonger than ever with heat and cold? ... exactly what it's doing now in our summer month's and our winter month's, with elevated amount's of precipitation and the rest. If anything, dont we need to at least clean up our filthy wayz and habit's?


Word Out ....



*****************************************************************************


***** POST NOTE: Concerning job's in America though, even with our pay decreases and REAL unemployment figures, we are still doing "fairly well", and still creating job's instead of losing them at alarming rates such as during the last part of the Bush/ Cheney administration. On the environment, we are also doing not too bad, and I point this out to compare to some of the other largest nation's of the world, we still are a very competitive nation. BUT ... it is importante to push hard on these issues, because we have been recently dropping back in many area's ... understand, that is importante to keep a strong work force and middle classes because one of the reason's we do so well, is because we are such a large consumer country, we even have so many advantages as far as port's, river/ water wayz transportation, trade and much else ... it is importante to keep this to sustain what we have worked so hard to create over the last century ... and I KNOW it can get BETTER than what we are currently doing. Part of improving has to do with also making sure we have tight environmental rules, I mean ... you sure as Hell dont want to go so unregulated and get totally trashed out ... look how bad large countries like China and India got with too relaxed regulation's. Folk's like myself dont want to drive energy companies out of business, we/ I want your business, investment's especially domestically, with more diversity in your research for such ... and we guarantee defense protection as well to our international investor's, and want folks of all business to make decent profit's ... but there HAS to be protection's as well ... going hogwild does not even serve the best long term interest's of those icon's either. The money spent for example for processing this tar sands stuff may not be such a great investment to throw so much into, if/ when those oil/ petrol prices drop, looking at the cost's to the company of even the structures/ plants to do this, so you need some balance not just for environmental reason's, but for economic reason's too.

CLEANING UP THE VA (CBS 60 Minutes): REFORM in the VA ... with BOB MCDONALD & SEN. BERNIE SANDERS ... The "Democracy over Bureaucracy" Edition ... (VETERAN'S SPOTLIGHT PT.39) & (From The FOXHOLE with Bernie PT.22)








(left to right) Sen. Bernie Sanders- Chairman on Senate Committee of Veterans Affairs and new Secretary of Veterans Affairs Bob McDonald



This posting will be to honour "Veterans Day" 2014, and will serve both the "Veteran's Spotlight" and "From The FOXHOLE with Bernie" series of this journal ... and this is a series of this journal that I enjoy doing as much as the music/ arts series of this journal/ blog. Bob McDonald is the new Secretary of Veterans Affairs and sure as Hell has his work cut out for him ... but this guy has been really trying his damnedest too! Last night CBS 60 Minutes had a piece on him and his plan to clear up this VA issue following the NFL games (and Congrats to the Cowboys on their big win over the Jacksonville Jaguars @ London/ Wimbley), which was really a good piece I wanted to link in here below with a one on one with Bob, and also a video below from the Chairman on Senate Committee of Veterans Affairs Bernie Sanders for the nomination of Bob and what needs to be addressed and overhauled job#1 in our country (country and familia come as priorities in my book), this should have no problemo getting bipartisan support as well, including from our President, who has really been generous in his atencion to our veterans during his time in office. After this below, I will add my part on this issue.

First below some video and newsread on this scandal earlier this year in the VA ... when it came up all over the news (but obviously been going on for years), I was almost in disbelief at was I was reading/ viewing, and this is just a fraction of how deep this is. And whistleblowers in this have been coming out coast to coast after Phoenix area got exposed, so this has been sort of an in- house culture all over America!



***** CNN/ U.S.: VA deaths covered up to make statistics look better, whistle- blower says ... (newsread/ video)




"Mad As Hell"- V.A. Whistleblowers Continue To Come Forward ... Thanx to MASS TEA PARTY







Thomas Hudson Pickering (aka "Ranch Chimp" & "Commie Tommie") with other half (wife) Rosalie Recto Vinas (Pickering)



The investigation's into this VA issue will no doubt be ungoing for awhile because of how deep and complex it is, but I do feel that Bob McDonald was a good choice and he has some great idea's and approach to breaking up some of this big bureaucracy that contributed to this ... this has to be the worst I have seen in my lifetime. And not only Bob being a vet, but also working his way through the American Dream and his work overseeing Proctor & Gamble for 3 decades brings some added qualification's. And I sure as Hell dont blame this on the former Secretary Shinseki either, this was just a bunch of slacker attitudes, too much complex red tape and bureaucracy, and just outright extreme greed as far as bonuses motivating some people ... the whole fucken thing deep within was simply reckless ... and this is not what our democracy is about. This reorganization and clean up, will also be the largest in VA history, but should also do alot of hiring as far as doctor's/ staff needed too.

One of the best thing's also to start, is not just making it easier for vets to access the care they need, but the fact that Bob after reviewing this found multiple more cases that need investigating, that were not mentioned ... being that we also need criminal charges in alot of this (alot of covering up trying to be done in my opinion). To me ... some of these individual's are just as guilty when death's occurred because of their behaviour, as someone like Nidal Hasan ... and in my opinion in the most extreme cases with compelling evidence of this and a fair trial, are deserving of the death penalty, the same as Hasan, and of course appropriate criminal sentencing for the other's ... our veterans I view similar to when our children get abused ... these are importante asset's, and our own, and so many of our familia, friends and neighbours ... who we should look out for No#1. Widespread firing's, reprimand and reorganizing as Bob should announce in the next couple dayz is a great start, but also criminal charges for some.

The VA has also came a long way already as far as improving the service and quality of care needed, so it has NOT been a failure, besides this parasite within the system ... it has been better than ever on improvement's (a friend is being treated for PTSD currently who had a breakdown), this will just add an additional step that need's to be taken, and weed out what need's to be. So I am looking forward at least on this issue to get full bipartisan support without the usual bitch- fights between these 2 parties, and to allow Bob the thing's he need's to get the job on the road and done. As far as attempt's to keep this under the rug or covered up? ... too many folk's involved and too big to keep it on the "low" ... this, like any other, will be exposed fully with time. Other than that ... Thank You to our Veterans!

This post mid- term election's posting will serve both the "From The FOXHOLE with Bernie" & "The AWAKENING" series of this journal. Below I wanted to post this opening of Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) on CNN with his response to the election outcome, then video from the Senator, having his brunch chat on the Thom Hartmann show, where he's takes question's from American's for a one on one response to explain what the condition is in America ... especially now, after this massive mudslide of Republican OLIGOPOLY financed power in Washington. This is something that many mainstream politician's should do, but unfortunately these dayz, there is hardly any personal touch between politician's and the American people, besides basically campaign political talk paid for strictly by these oligarch's and affiliates. The video is lengthy and I couldnt find a written transcript to add of it, but it is well worth the listen ... and Thank You Senator Sanders for staying in the trenches for your country! After ... I will add my own input.


***** Because Wall Street and Washington politic's have such an impact on todayz touch and go economy and economic issues related in America ... this posting will also be included in the "DEBT CRISIS PT.1/ THE PAPER DOLL SHOW" piece of this journal.

Thomas Hudson Pickering (aka "Ranch Chimp" & "Commie Tommie") with daughter "Bear"



Now the football game type strategy and political play that I been talking about throughout this series like in this posting about voter suppression a week or so ago last, has came to reality ... I mean ... this is all that they needed ... so that game is over ... "been there and done that basically" ... time to move on. And there is no reason for the President to apologize after this election result's as far as I'm concerned, or feel sad or whatever ... it's time for the President to come out swinging if anything. All those Democrat's that discouraged even the President from showing up to campaign for them out of fear ... fuck ya'll ... you are as much to blame for this shit as the Republican's ... the GOP's game plan was to divide the Democrat's (the same way they keep our states divided instead of the bullshit term they use as them being united), and spend 6 year's with paid propaganda to paint the President as the reason that Congress cant get a damn thing done. This President may not be the strongest President we have had, but about the most bipartisan and even pro- business and fairly liberal President in my lifetime (I'll be 59 in January), he has reached across the isle many times, been strong on defense, and gave out so many olive branches as it is and bent over backward's to deal with Congress ... he tried ... they didnt ... period. Not even his (Obama) real plan for health care reform was even presented straight and twisted into a Healthcare SnoweJob basically, and those Republican's that been blaming everything on ObamaCare ... it was part of your engineering, which you diced, sliced and spliced into something else to line the pocket's of your money master's ... there was never no damn reform in the wasted money or milking it, or even a public option that the President pushed for ... the Democrat's as well turned on the President and contributed to that engineering and legislation.

The mainstream media on this election was absolutely nonsensical ... CNN and ABC for examples were covering this strong, and actually acted excited over it ... some of the media journalist's acted like they were cumming in their pant's (orgasm) they were so excited ... and saying after the win thing's like "what does this mean?", "the American people have spoken", "how Washington is going to change now" or other nonsense, but I understand that they are "paid" to bring on that excitement and enthusiasm ... after all ... if they dont, they'll probably be in the unemployment line ... so they get frightened like many of the politician's did on the Democrat side ... you know ... the political correctness, ass- kissing and the rest. I dont see any damn reason to think any damn thing is going to change, or anything in Washington will be better, even for Republican American's ... if anything, it can just get worse or go into more gridlock. As far as McConnell now saying that he understand's the people and time for them to get to work and the President to hand out more olive branches or treat's or whatever ... in my opinion ... the only damn olive branch I would give you if I was the President, is one up your ass. This whole thing is seriously rigged with both these polarizing sides getting caught in this oligarchic web of basically political organized crime. Not only is there not any change for the good of America overall, but it mean's not a goddamn thing, but more of the same ole shit, and no ... the American people have NOT spoken, just a low percentage, many didnt speak or were even heard in any fashion at that! ... so the mainstream political media asking this nonsense is pointless ... you been "had" basically and fell for it like anyone who got hustled on the street.

The hilarious part to this ... is to see a year from now or so, once this Congress start's pushing their recently unspoken agenda ... is how many Republican American's will appreciate what those who they voted for are going to attempt to do to this country. I mean ... it's no secret what the agenda was in the past and what they spent so much time and money on over the last few year's to get into the position they are in now, from privatizing your Social Security to Wall Street investor's, to trying to privatize your Post Office to sell it to the highest bidder, so they can take it over with a bunch of independent minimum wage contractor's for delivery, and your customer service out of some place like Mumbai, India ... try to replace your Medicare with some voucher's to shop around at various insurance companies, state to state and changing plan's in between administrative screw up's annually or whatever, like happen's with folk's fly- by- night car/ auto insurance or similar. How will you feel if they attempt to abolish or downgrade somehow the minimum wage? ... womens rights to choose? ... abolish your right to sue even for malpractice if a mistake is made on your new overpriced discount medical care or surgery? ... how will you feel if they even cut more from our veteran's who are some of this nation's true elite that put's their lives on the line? ... or screwing our student's and education more than they have already? ... or other thing's I point out in these series related ... I could go on and on with this. The fact is that these are all thing's that they want to do (and even some Democrat's) ... encouraged by funding their political campaign's through their corporate communist allies ... I'm NOT making this up ... they been very clear about this, and openly proposed it in the past. I am not saying that a strong Democrat Congress would have stopped this ... just saying that they would have been an obstacle if and when this is pushed harder ... and at least be a bargaining type chip. Unfortunately neither of these 2 sides are listening to the American people anywayz. And there should be alot of Hell raising to come from coast to coast in our nation in soon time, if these folks in Washington do what they been planning on doing, and bring some kind of political revolution if anything in this country.

And this awakening is needed more than ever, to be spread by everyone who can across our nation in all our individual cities, town's and communities on every creative level you can come up with. This requires alot of one on one contact, meeting, town hall type event's or whatever, along with this social media. What I write in this journal is simply for public view and can be accessed by anyone, but my pressing these issues I do far more intimately and personal on a one on one level locally with so many individual's of various walk's, and small local group's, where I can get more personal and we can talk openly and freely without every word and thought we have being in public too, so they can feel more freedom from political and partisan correctness. So it isnt just a matter of online media or tweet's or whatever ... it's a matter of thousand's and million's of us taking to the street's in our communities to enlighten for the preservation of our nation and what liberties as well as democracy we still have left, especially standing with our younger generation's and children and making sure they see the reality, because of all the pressures and distraction's they are challenged with. This also includes signing petition's, large public protest's, boycotting of good's/ product's and services, and workplace walk- out's and strikes, to just holding up sign's over freeway overpasses and other obstruction's ... after all ... revolution can be achieved in various wayz and on various level's, it takes all, not just one way of doing thing's or a boxed in tradition. Again ... these power's as I have wrote time and again throughout these posting's actually put strain on us in society besides distacting us, by tightening wages, living standard's reduction's, putting the financial squeeze on us, and try to drain us basically to further psychologically suppress us ... why not make sure we return the duties, and give them Hell all the way around, eh?

So this will even awaken American's more on what need's to be done as Bernie clearly explain's above, and eventually even drive a higher voter turnout, as long as there is still that right to vote, which need's some serious updating, because not only the voter turn- out is too low, but we cant even be sure these dayz if any of the votes are counted correctly for that matter, which I wondered time and again, because where my voting has been here in Dallas County for year's, it's just electronic (you know ... like ... computer's and machines are capable of mistakes, malfunction's, or even tampering too), no verification that your vote has even been counted or print- out ... who is overseeing that end, eh? ... a "for profit" corporation maintaining the machines? If any positive change for America comes from this last election ... I would be shocked! Creating job's by taking away the minimum wage requirement? ... what kind of job creation would that be, eh? and how many American's on either of these polarizing sides would even want that? ... who would want to create more poverty and problem's in our communities, that we have to all live in? ... after all ... these folks rigging our democracy and political system, dont live where we live, shop where we shop, or anything related ... why would they give a shit? It is the working and lower to upper middle classes, smaller companies and corporation's that keep our economy up and strong for the most part ... damage that, and everyone hurt's more, including the biggest business. But I been explaining/ writing about this rubbish in these series and journal since the start of it (probably 6 year's now or so), so enough from me, cause all I see here is the same ole song and dance, and as usual after every bloody damn election for year's now, trying to be bloated and promoted in the media as something it isnt. And NO ... Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush for 2016 IS NO CHOICE ... which is already in the media, more Clinton Bush crap is nothing but more of the same ole rehashed and repackaged deadbeat shit too.


Word Out ....

***** POST NOTE: I am not saying here either that there are no positive idea's when it comes to being conservative or conservative thought in our system of democracy at all, especially when it comes to business and spending (and I am NOT really a "liberal" as painted by American pop- culture politic's, I embrace some conservative, liberal, socialist and even libertarian values, it depend's on the issue, whatever worx for my country and it's best interest's, as you can see throughout this journal/ blog). BUT ... I am only going on WHAT THEY themselves have been proposing to do, and especially strong over the last decade ... I mean ... these Republican's of today are alot different than folk's like former President's Eisenhower, Reagan or the likes ... in fact, I seriously doubt that many of the old school Republican's would even go along with some of what you see today. Much of it is bad for American business and trade across the board on the various level's, and not very pro- America or even pro- democracy at that. And too much is being dictated by just a handful of power entities with enormous wealth ... who have NO intention's to let their profit's trickle down to ALL business and keeping a healthy business and social environment for America and ALL our allies who share business and trade with us. So ... only time will tell over the next couple year's EXACTLY what their agenda is, and if they truely will work with this President at that ... understand that I see no reason or evidence that this is going to happen with what they have presented and proposed so far.

On the other hand, nothing is for FREE or comes without a PRICE, this sudden mudslide victory for the GOP was tailored as getting rid of so called "Obama politic's" (which they created a "Boogeyman" characterization to begin with through propaganda media and alot of money) ... notice, they had no agenda or offered nothing ... and even suppressing million's of voters. For year's now all they gave us was endless war/ defense spending, attempt's to privatize anything the people own to corporate ownership and unregulated manipulation and legislation's, tearing down consumer rights and protection's, workers rights, womens rights, voters rights, failure to invest on massive infrastructure need's and education domestically (they spent billion's rebuilding Iraq and Afghanistan for instance, but of course billion's also to blow it up first so they would have something to rebuild {: ), allowing bank's that we bailed out to screw us on mortgages and our properties, without proper oversight and penalization, refusal to work with the President, and time and again walking out to take long vacation's (at our expense) or actually shutting down our government, childish petty bitch fights, and the list goes on and on ... my point being is that they won this on selling NOTHING WHATSOEVER, but as alwayz year after year ... lies and word's of no substance. Again ... I am NOT making any of this up, look at the abundance of history and facts out there ... it is clear as day, what America has received from those who represent us.

This other corporate election coming up now 2016 ... they will have to do some real hustling over the next 2 year's to actually try to sell voter's ... if they continue to just do all of the above, they may get a suprise in 2016 and alot of new voters as group's across the nation work on getting people proper ID and signed up to vote (especially in Texas with it's large urban population's and many group's). But BOTH these dominating parties know clear and well that they are disliked by the majority, so they once again, will do everything they can to save their political dominance and empires. My guess is that they will come up with something to sell, like raising the minimum wage (cause they know from stats that even many Republican's support it, and the Dem's would jump all over it like a cheap suit on sunday), and Republican's know President Obama will go along with that ... and Republican's will try to use that as a sales gimmick saying it happened under their rule or something, if they do raise it, I also expect some stipulation's to it, or to try to make a buck/ dollar somehow off it with their lawyer's drafting up some clever legislation ... or maybe picking apart and revising this ACA/ ObamaCare, or similar crap. But ... bottom line is ... they will have to come up with SOMETHING to sell/ trade. And my guess is that sooner or later because of this reckless incompetent governing on both sides, when voters get up to par with the new voter regulation's and spend a couple year's getting people registered and so forth ... I dont believe the GOP or Democrat's will have enough to sell or present going the way they been, and with the history/ track record they have, and with all that, alternative political choices will gain ground out of outright anger and rebellion ... which I would hope happen's personally speaking, and is bound to happen sooner or later ... I too am thoroughly sick of this oligopoly duet.
