BERNIE SANDERS/ DALLAS RALLY 2015: Blazin & BERNin Through the "BIG D" ... Best Little TOWN HALL in Dallas ... The "ROUSIN 8000" Edition ... (From The FOXHOLE with Bernie PT.25)






Part 25 of the "From The FOXHOLE with Bernie" series ... is more of a memorabilia posting for this journal. According to the Dallas Morning News linked below, 8000 attended this "town hall" meeting here yesterday in downtown Dallas, which was RSVP ... and what better place to have it but the Financial and Arts Districts of downtown! I suggested earlier in the morning that we get there early and glad I did, because I was reading that this was being held in a hotel ballroom, which I calculated looking at the venue capacity and square footage, wouldnt be able to squeeze in more than about 3000 standing at most (and that would be cramming them), so I told a friend I am guessing we may have a tad more than 3000 (ya think?), and I would like to get there early to get a good spot ... although it's not a small hotel being 42 stories. I also read that Houston had to change the venue they chose because of the crowd that may show, which they changed to the Hofheinz Pavilion in Houston to accommodate which is considerably larger (I attended several rock concerts in there when I was younger living in Houston), and that as well I read here (KHOU/ HOUSTON) got over 5200. But YES ... it was as packed as you can get here in Dallas ... the ballroom you couldnt squeeze another body in there if you tried! Outside the ballroom in the convention area there were thousands more crammed in watching these large video screens. The enthusiasm and excitement Bernie roused was electrifying ... I have never seen a town hall meeting here in town with the energy this had ... and Bernie as usual was hitting all the right spots with the crowd and really had us going and loud! It was just the "best little town hall in Dallas" ... with Bernie blazin and bernin! And Thanx to the Senator for dropping in to enlighten and support us down here on this mid- July hot summer day (being from Vermont, I'm sure he noticed the heat, which was in the upper 90's and typical here in July) ... because as the Senator pointed out in his Dallas and Houston speech, much of the Washington establishment Democrat Party turns their back on Texas and basically ignores it, nor supports us very much, so here we have to challenge this neo Republican stronghold alone basically ... so Thank You Sir! Part of the posting's title was inspired by "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" ... below some newsread and video of the speech.

AMERICAN HEALTH CARE COST 2015/ 2016: The Health Care CASH CRASH ... & How Out- Of- Pocket will SOCK- IT to American's ... The "In DEBT till DEATH" Edition ... (HEALTH CARE REFORM: another "FORM" of "REFORM" PT.6)






Bernie Sanders On Universal Health Care ... Thanx to BERNIE SANDERS 2016





This posting will serve as Part 6 of the "Health Care Reform: another Form of Reform" series, with also another related series linked below called "Health Care SnoweJob". But what inspires this Part 6, is so many folks stories over the last couple years locally here in Texas that are having more problems than ever with insurance and health care ... and also because there is not enough coverage on this as far as mainstream news or politically ... again, unfortunately we are media saturated with this Confederate Flag rubbish which took up a couple weeks of political and media bitch- fighting before getting resolved ... and of course Donald Trump whining about Mexican's, who dont know a damn thing about Mexicans, immigration, assume (at least in speeches) many have criminal intentions for coming here ... or probably never even known any, the odd thing about many American millionaires/ billionaires, with several like Trump running in politics, is they use the services of illegal/ legal immigrants (Mexican or others) and even investing in ventures/ projects out of our country that is simply to get by on the "cheap" for workers to increase their profit's ... or in this case using it politically. Or other big news of some Presidential candidate hopefuls lying about each other instead of focusing hard on issues. I chose Senator Bernie Sanders above to open this posting, because there is probably no one in Washington who has fought for a more balanced and cost efficient health care system in this country than him ... and Thank Goodness that he is running for President, because talk about fixing this is rare on Capitalism Hill (aka Capitol Hill). But, we have a serious dilemma of catastrophic economic proportion growing in this country, and you simply cant have your cake and eat it, something/ someone has to give. And as usual I was expecting this to come in time as you can see throughout these series in this journal/ blog over the last 6 or 7 years or so. Some news links and video below that I found of interest, then I will add a part to it after.

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


Anyone who reads this that does not know me personally, I will tell you straight up that I'm not a conspiracy theorist or panic type guy ... when I say this can be economically catastrophic, I really mean that ... looking at the basic math will show you that if something is NOT done about this, it will hit us like a brick to the head/ skull at some point. There are too many special interests here not planning or looking ahead, and it's not a conspiracy, but many for different reasons just acting out of extreme greed, financial panic, politics ... and not thinking. Even the "fraud" alone today from doctors to medical services providers to nurses in the US is enormous, and the largest of investigations and take- downs in U.S.Department of Justice history, which I linked below. Too much problem also is in politics of the left and right, you have now on the right a strong movement to repeal the ACA (aka ObamaCare), yet have NO alternative plans to solve any of this ... so it's just political inspired by some special interests, and eventually we are going to have a cash crash, either with providers/ companies first or the insured/ uninsured/ customers ... but both will take the hit in time. The design basically like so much else in this country is just to keep you in debt till death as a sort of investment, but cant work in the longrun. Those that want to just repeal ObamaCare/ ACA or cut the government subsidies and think it will solve problems are so wrong, why in Hell do you think the U.S.Supreme Court ruled to leave subsidies in place? ... they can see what will happen if you remove them, yet have a mandatory law in place to buy insurance, even though I am sure some of the right wing justices want to, those subsidies to the lower working classes are also needed revenues to providers, and those people with the new health care could NOT afford to even keep the mandatory insurance without help, especially with decreasing wages and under- employment with the costs of living overall. But even our declining middle classes which are a key part of the bread and butter of our economy are being squeezed even more than ever.


***** NBC NEWS (18 June 2015): FED'S CHARGE 243 PEOPLE FOR MEDICARE FRAUD


One guy I know (Tim), had to recently get some day surgery for a small growth in his nose, making it difficult to breathe through his nose, his insurance is mostly paid for by his employer, he pay's a small part of it, and he also had to change that after the ACA went into law, also pay more out of his paycheck to cover/ subsidize the employer costs of the new ACA, even though as an employee dont have ObamaCare ... but Tim had no problemo with that, what he did have a problem with was having to shop for doctors, I think one wanted $5000 up front and he settled for one that wanted $2500 up front just to get it done ... plus his out of pocket, deductible expenses, etc, those of which can get paid later ... but he had to withdraw money (also another fee) out of his 401K just to get in. Another gal I know Judy who's husband died in an accident, now has no insurance and she is under- employed since her husband made the larger household income, she has a knee problem that requires surgery, since her husband died she is no longer on his plan for some reason (I thought as a surviving spouse they should offer her something), I told her to get on the ObamaCare deal, because she has no insurance and because IF she dont, they will start to keep any tax refund she has and penalize/ fine her ... she knew nothing of this though. But Judy cant afford insurance on what she makes, or can even afford the out of pocket it would cost on what she makes, and she already went through everything her husband had saved. Another gal I know (Jennifer) who has 2 young children and gets no solid/ steady support from her "ex" just told me she prays that her or her kids dont get sick, because the insurance plan she did have to buy is all she could afford on her wages, and the out of pocket would "kill her" (in her own words), she worx 2 part time jobs. Another guy (Randy) who is a independent self- employed contractor in AC work (which of course is seasonal) with some fly- by- night "self employed" insurance plan he's never had to use yet, told me he dont give a shit about the law to buy insurance and if he gets on the spot and decides to drop what he has, let them fine him or whatever. Some I have talked to will just go to emergency rooms regardless considering the expenses of what they do have insurance wise. Those are just a few of what I heard, all single working class citizen's, one with 2 young children, that pay all their own bills on modest incomes with no assistance, therefore like many other working class Americans, really dont even have much money saved in the bank (these dayz it is much harder for Americans to save any money, because they are nickel and dimed to death on everything else), having to take out of their 401K's or put on credit cards, etc. There are others I hear from such as neighbours that are contractors, or work for small companies, construction to carpentry workers, etc ... and there are millions upon millions more across America that are in the same boat.

I also suspect now that some are not getting the same equal care and out of pocket expenses as others that have ObamaCare ... the reason is because a few months back I was visiting my doctor getting an annual type basic check up deal, and while in the office overheard a couple employees in the same office debating on what to do with a patient that had ObamaCare as far as payments who was in the waiting area ... one telling the other to decline certain procedures and to charge a cash up front minimum to even get seen ... and Yes ... the question from one lady/ staff employee to the other was .... "what do we do with this patient? ... they have that ObamaCare", showing the ID card to the other, the one responding/ deciding was shaking her head, of course it wasnt my business, but I couldnt help to hear and see their reaction. I myself am fortunate to be on a large group plan through the company of my wife, but even on my insurance when these ACA changes went through, my original doctor who I really liked was removed from our plan and I had to get another primary care doctor. Many Americans who work for small businesses may not be on large group plans and have insurance policies that are really not very good, although they are required by law to have them, and many cant afford what they have, even many middle class will have their credit ratings destroyed due to medical debt. The whole medical care and insurance system in the U.S. is also so complicated with too many parts, co-pays, co- insurers, and enough to confuse the Hell out of most ... I mean ... you would damn near have to take a college course to understand it, or waste endless hours of time you dont have, as much as having to endlessly shop around when your sick or in need of surgery/ treatment.

The ACA (HHS.gov/HealthCare) has several advantages sure (only because our system was not much to begin with), such as certain paid screening's, which insurers want anywayz for preventive care, such as most car repair places will give you give free checks/ inspections to find what is wrong and fix it to get your business, especially having in law not being turned down for pre- existing conditions and having no annual spending cap, and America does have really great care for those who can afford it. But this doesnt mean that we are not in dire need of reform to the whole system still ... abolishing ObamaCare is just political and solves none of the issues ... we need to keep what we have and reform from there. I am one that supports the need for a single payer type system as Senator Bernie Sanders talks about, or as even President Obama tried to get through with his partial public option plan at first that lobbyists and politicians both left and right in Congress threw in the trash ... even my daughter and her husband who are both RN's here in Dallas, as well as my sister-in-law and her husband who are also both RN's in Toronto (Canada), and a doctor of mine who all told me in past, that they agree that our health care expenses here in U.S. is way out of whack, and needs real change. This should be a priority focus of politicians from the President on down and pushed very hard by the voters in this country, or else our economy will suffer more severely in time ... not get better, because of our neglect to control some of this and fix what is clearly broken before it breaks us.

SUPER PACs- SAVIOURS OF DEMOCRACY: Born to Reform & The UNETHICAL Commitment to ETHICS ... The "POOP SCOOP" Edition ... (MONEY N POLITICS PT.2) & (POLITICAL CORRUPTION & ETHICS PT.7)






How Bernie Sanders expects to raise enough campaign cash ... Thanx to CBS NEWS





This posting to also serve 2 series of this journal ... "Money N Politics" & "Political Corruption & Ethics". Part of what inspired this posting is all the mainstream news about these so called Super PACs and the scrambling of candidates to grab all the big bucks they can, and while taking a walk this morning, a pile of day old dogshit on a curb with flies swarming all over it like a cheap suit on sunday! Being non professional and somewhat disorganized when it comes to blogging and also kind of scatter brained and spontaneous, odd things may inspire a posting, a pamphlet or used condom on the sidewalk, or in this case a pile of old dogshit ... I title my posting's as if I were writing lyrics for a song to make it easy, so that is why they may seem to rhyme. A couple interesting and twisted news reads below explaining how these campaigns are going now ... and even one pointing out how these Super PACs are a type of "saviour to democracy" ... then I will add a few cents to it after.

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



You know ... you can look at this campaign funding a thousand different wayz and twist all kinds of shit out of it ... it can look like a cancer or a blessing to democracy or whatever, the bottom line though is commitment to those who financially support you, and this has gotten entirely ridiculous. I mean like, all in the mainstream of media politically, is who is getting the most money and how they need to slither around this and that on how they campaign and get it, who can tell the best story and outspeak the other, etc, and nothing more than a game avoiding what needs to actually get done, and when you get paid, you're supposed to work. Most folks regardless or what job/ career they're in ... cater to those who give them a paycheck/ finance/ support, because that is simply how it worx ... and this is why I strongly feel that we should get ALL the money out of politics and go with public funding through government, and even millions of others are starting to feel this way ... what we see now is a sort of a commitment to ethics that are unethical. You cant accept this money without having to pay a service, just as you cant go to your daily job and be on the clock and do nothing. It in my opinion is making our politics a pile of dogshit more than it's been in years, with billionaires like flies swarming all over it ... and someone need's to scoop up the poop and get rid of it.

This whole thing was engineered and born to reform our society to their liking, not to save democracy or to even embrace it for that matter. The Republican Party makes it clear as day what their agenda is, and it sure as Hell is not about creating decent paying jobs, fair and open free trade, familia values or the related, they are clear that their mission is to reform our society to work in alignment with international corporate and banking monopolization and reducing our quality of living, pay and choice, so that we can compete with those in 3rd world countries, and to privatize everything we have from our government and politics to our mothers ... and especially to transform Social Security (another cash grab) ... turning it all over to the entities who finance them or who are commonly referred to as "elite" ... an entity that basically sits on their ass and figures out wayz to rob others ... that I simply refer to as "day old shit", and now with a growing support from establishment Democrat's. Sure, you can make the argument that with Super PACs you can have a more diversified selection of candidates that wouldnt otherwise be able to get the financial backing, but it's a Hell of a price to pay for it ... look who they owe to regardless of what political party they belong to. The Republicans probably have over a dozen possible candidates nearly a year and a half before the election, yet all with the same bottom line agenda and commitment.

In the largest media's they act so excited over this and seeing the candidates ass kissing for this money, and equally as excited over the miscellaneous bitch fights between them, who has the most money or biggest house, as if it is a sort of entertainment, which I reckon it is of sort, and those media journalist's are kind of forced to do that or look for another job, but it should be pointed out more for what it truly is, not focusing on dumb shit for weeks at a time like how many email accounts a candidate like Hillary Clinton has, I mean, who really gives a shit about how many email accounts she has? (multiple email accounts are NOT illegal or unethical), what a candidates favourite movie is or related nonsense ... we need to address ISSUES ... JOB RELATED issues that are holding us back from progress that benefits the majority of all. I have met so many folks over the years that thought I was dumb as a door knob to even waste my time voting, because they looked at it as rigged and pre- paid to begin with that does nothing, and I understand why they would think that, but I still alwayz voted regardless ... now with something as clearly obvious as this new Super PACs paying everything, that could discourage folks more, but I would hope that it get's people angry and motivates folks to act, and especially new younger generations. Senator and candidate Bernie Sanders thinx we need a political revolution of sort and get more and more people involved with the voting process, I feel similar.

This is why you see so many now questioning this and groups starting up to tear this down and stop things like this Citizens United crap, and it's in order and right to tear this down in anyway possible, because this isnt just happening in America ... look anywhere around the globe today and you can see it is all connected to one ideology and nonsense to making us global, loving and submissive to them. They want to even take away any consumer, environmental, labour protections, or anything else to make their profit margin larger and to make us all more dependent on them ... and to look at them as a type of saviour, an entity that will abandon us and this country anyway regardless of what we give them once we have nothing left. Understand that one of the reason's for billionaires and your largest investments to merge these multi- national too big to fail corporate and finance/ banking entities to rathole the majority of wealth today and lower our standards ... is not just to make us compete more for less, but because these entities "know" that the future societies will have less need for large populations of labourer's and consumers, and capitalism as we now know it will change, ratholing the wealth "now" is to build "their" future empires, NOT ours, because they see it as we will no longer be needed ... and THAT is why it is importante for us now to work on this and challenge this, because future prosperity doesnt have to be exclusively for ANY particular group, culture, social/ wealth status, etc ... a strong growing middle classes can work well WITHOUT the extreme rich or extreme poor. And many are so intoxicated financially, they cant even control their own environment and bowels without screwing up and asking for our money/ subsidies/ bailouts when they fall or just to succeed ... so you have to ask ... what can they do for us? ... and what real value are they? I dont personally see any value in them or half their political puppets ... as far as I'm concerned, I dont want their support or to be dependent on them if that's how they choose to play ... which is destructive to themselves even in the longrun ... you dont marry failure, unless you choose to fail.

MARRIAGE EQUALITY VICTORY AMERICA 2015: Supreme Court HAND in Laying Down Law of the LAND ... The "Celebration Day" Edition ... (What Is Gay Marriage? PT.3) & (Sexploitation Nation PT.27)






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 : )



This posting is to highlight the latest victory news concerning marriage equality here in America, and will serve 2 series of this journal ... "Sexploitation Nation" and "What Is Gay Marriage?" both. This is finally a reality in America and has been fought for years ... it took a Supreme Court ruling here to get this done, which is in my opinion the fair and right thing to do. Besides, in my opinion, the Supreme Court REALLY owed American's in general something, being how they basically let us be sold out to these multi- national corporations on other decisions and allowed for our political elections to be bought out by those as well ... you keep screwing the people time after time ... you HAVE TO GIVE SOMETHING sooner or later to calm some of the issues, or you will get more mass resistance in time. But this is also a big victory locally for Texas as well, because I knew it would take something like this to get LGBT's the right to be equal citizens ... Texas has a large LGBT population, but Texas also has a very strong opposition force to it and equal rights, so trying to get this to pass on our state level was difficult (as you can see throughout these related series in this journal), and just widespread isolated groups in the state as well as across the nation with discrimination of LGBT Americans on their agenda's, so it is long past due. And this couldnt have come at a better time, being that so many of our nations social issues have been politically shuffled around and put on the back shelf in the closet, with way too much being done to suppress rights ... so it took the hand of the Supreme Court to lay down the law in the land. Again as I pointed out before, it is also a plus for business and our social and cultural atmosphere, so everybody wins in this. So it's rightfully a call for celebration for everyone, so we can get past this and move on to fixing the many issues we still face. Part of the posting's title inspired by the 1970 Led Zeppelin classic song "Celebration Day", which is an old favourite of mine as far as composition/ structure, and will be added below on this posting as a closing song to dedicate to the occasion, also some newsread, video and photos linked below.

TEXAS FLOOD 2015: GOD, GAYZ & GOVERMENT's Wrath on Texas ... Bitches, Witches & Fictitious Bitchin ... The "SATANIC BITCH" Edition ... (THE END MUST BE NEAR PT.7)




Central Houston



Well ... looks like time for another round for "The End Must Be Near" series and dedicated in humour to my fellow Texans who love Looney Tunes and the related (actually, this entire series was inspired by humour), but not to attack anyone's personal belief's (I have my own views on some of these institutionally and politically manufactured religions here), but to show how obsessed some become with paranoia and self manufactured nonsense ... because unfortunately while we are so distracted by this kind of entertainment ... part of our legislative branch of government yesterday slipped through this preliminary stage for a shady- type trade deal, when our House of Representatives passed to "fast track" authority (CNN), a secretive trade package that if not changed in language really screws us, and there is very little news coverage of this, regardless of how big of a deal this is ... and I would hope that many of these politicians both Democrat and Republican's who want to rush this through, lose their ass in the next election or some other way. Yet we are bitchin about other petty things that wont make or break us, but simply temporarily entertain our Enquirer type tabloid minds, while turning off our minds to reality and how were really getting screwed. So part of the inspiration to do this posting was from when I looked up online about the flooding here in Texas and ran across some of these reasons.

But whenever these events come up whether it's a flood, drought, hurricane or you name it ... the conspiracies or whatever flow with these psychologically masochistic individuals and cults assuming that their concept of God who is the creator of the universe, is so concerned with our petty nonsensical rants, bitch fights and petty prejudices, that God is punishing us for something like "sex acts" or similar petty things ... as if God/ a higher power responsible for universal creation as believed ... wouldnt have anything better to do than to nitpick silly petty things {: ) Or of course that the government wants to punish or destroy Texas ... which is also nonsensical considering Texas is one of the largest economies in the world ... and making many in Washington and Wall Street billions. At the same time it doesnt even cross some of these folks minds that maybe our destructive actions and relentless damage to the environment by contributing to the unnatural acceleration of "Global Warming", that this is a natural reaction of nature ... just like when you eat something you shouldnt and naturally get stomach cramps or similar.

Below some of the talk in video and link read of why Texas got hit with floods. Part of the posting's title was inspired by musician Marilyn Manson's ... "Guns, God and Government" 2002 album  ... and by author Anton LaVey's 1971 release "Satanic Witch" book. Then to close out the posting with the classic song from Texas bluesman Stevie Ray Vaughan's ... "Texas Flood", as he's joined by other blues legends B.B.King and Albert King ... which will also be included in the "RCJ MUSIC/ ARTS HONOUR ROLL SOCIETY". Besides that ... the weather today here in Dallas is absolutely gorgeous and sunny ... and a Happy Fathers Day to all those Dad's like myself ... Enjoy!

BERNIE SANDERS 1 on 1 with KATIE COURIC: The BLUEPRINT for Restoring American DEMOCRACY & FAMILY VALUES ... "The MILLIONFLARES" Edition ... (From The FOXHOLE with Bernie PT.24)






This posting will serve as Part 24 of "From The FOXHOLE with Bernie" series ... a one on one interview with Bernie and veteran award winning journalist and best selling author Katie Couric, and a look at Bernie's blueprint for trying to restore America's DEMOCRACY and familia values ... both of which has taken a drastic decline over the last couple decades ... so much in decline, that in 2015 by definition, America is more of an OLIGARCHY. All we been hearing in mainstream news media mostly ... is the constant struggle of potential Presidential candidates to appease, beg and raise money from billionaires/ millionaires, multi-national corporations, international investment bankers and the likes, as if there is not much else to be concerned with ... making it unfortunately where there is less and less time for candidates to do their jobs and basically getting cornered by worry instead of the issues we have. So this posting will be more of a "millionflares" edition over the talk of millionaires and billionaires ... a look at some solutions to ALL our concerns and issues in America, instead of the concerns of the very few ... who are so financially well off, they frankly dont have any concerns or worries on that issue ... so this is for ALL of America, not just a small percentage. I expect at least for Bernie to ignite millions of emergency flares through American's across our country, because we are on a borderline "state of emergency" ... and it's needed. I and thousands of others at this early point are happy to see Bernie chose to run for President, being for his integrity and all he has already done as far as job performance as a Mayor, Congressman and Senator ... Bernie is truly one of the hardest working employees we have!

I also want to applaud Sen.Sanders here for standing his ground as far as campaign financing and who he accepts money from, which must be difficult in these money dominating elections. We will see many candidates come out swinging in their campaign speeches at these "too big to fail" entities of corporate/ banking/ Wall Street entities on how they want to break them up, truly work for the majority of America and it's interest's, and say they want to cut out this campaign financing of billionaires basically swaying elections and political outcomes, etc ... basically telling us all what we want to hear ... YET, their record show's that they are basically committed to this support/ money and even in bed with them same entities. The point is ... someone in this is being less than truthful, or just outright lying ... I mean ... why would these big money entities throw millions of dollars into your support and campaign if you were out to tear them down? And why would you as a candidate accept their support if you are so against their financial and political support of you? ... it makes no sense. So there should be no problemo that the average American can see this. And as you can see throughout this series and journal, I am expecting Bernie to do well, regardless of what the mainstream media's been saying ... Listen to the man.

MONEY N POLITICS- PT.1 (NY Times/ CBS): The CAMPAIGN RAIN of BILLION DOLLAR BABIES ... & Removing the STEALTH from the WEALTH ... The "RICHIE RICH Bitch" Edition ... (UNITING Citizens against CITIZENS United PT.2)







***** PUBLIC CITIZEN/ CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM (Clean Up Washington)



***** CREDO ACTION/ OVERTURN CITIZENS UNITED: Tell Congress: Only people are people ... (petition)


***** END CITIZENS UNITED: (petition)







This posting will be a Part 2 for "UNITING Citizens against CITIZENS United" to highlight a news article this last week of a poll done by New York Times & CBS about the majority of Americans opinion of money in politics across party lines as well, which in my opinion is good news and should get a tad more atencion in other mainstream news because of the severity of this issue right now in particular. Even without opinion ... when you have 1% with more voice/ influence than 99% ... that shows you that something mathematically is SEVERELY IMBALANCED ... not just slightly ... which calls for atencion and modifications. I also included some video with Sen. Bernie Sanders concerning Citizens United, because Bernie has been strong on trying to clean up some of the corruption, he is also running for President ... he though is trying to win the vote simply on the will of the American voters without necessarily billionaires support. I am also optimistic and supportive of Bernie Sanders call for political revolution in our nation, despite the talk out of some that we should just go with the flow and accept the current reality or 2nd best, lesser of 2 evils, etc ... and I guess just passively sit on our asses ... I mean Richie Rich has plenty to bitch ... shouldnt we as well? Part of the postings title was inspired by the 1973 classic album/ single "Billion Dollar Babies" by "Alice Cooper" and the 1950's comic book character "Richie Rich". Then I will add some words afterwards.

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


The reason this is good news is because it is finally a mainstream issue and mainstream thought/ awareness, and has been building momentum ... although not quick enough in some areas ... BUT ... it is a good start! The big money moves very quick, in fact, they are usually at minimum of 5 years or more ahead of us on everything they have planned ... and that is what we sometimes miss ... being instead of us following their lead ... we and they should be following the majority/ our lead on the nations current issues. We knew most of this was coming as far as being taken over and a shaft being ran up our asses ... I myself been pointing this out since the start of this journal in related series and many other folks ... so part of our problemo has been neglect on our part. We also knew how fast this would move if todayz style of Republicans won a majority in the last mid- term elections and the fast moves of changes they would push for as dictated by their money support, which is basically cutting and trimming everything we have and built over the last century ... including our Constitutional Rights and everything we own and pay for ourselves ... that is the WHOLE POINT of financially milking and draining so much of our accumulated wealth/ assets ... so we have NO CHOICE but to DEPEND on them, eh? Same with the Citizens United ruling by the Supreme Court (wikipedia) ... the idea was designed and pushed to make it to suppress the majority of people of our nation from being able to politically/ campaign- wise outspend the billion dollar babies ... for more political monopolization basically. So it's like one of those flash flooding fast and heavy rain storms from the billion dollar babies, since were quickly getting pissed/ rained on and flooded, needing to rescue ourselves or drown.

I cant say how accurate these polls are ... but just what you hear from others in social media or your neighbours, friends, families and on the street seem to confirm it ... you know you are getting the same response and opinions as far as money in politics. Today even politicians are complaining about it ... but they too helped make their bed and are now having to lay down in it. I can only imagine despite the treats politicians may receive, knowing that they have to owe favours to a special interest that they or their constituents may not be in agreement with must be somewhat embarrassing and shameful, and such a jab to their integrity and career record ... but that's what happens, and basically having to sell out everything you value just to try to get a job in political office with only hoping to be allowed to do what's acceptable for all. And much today is nothing more than legalized bribery and corruption on the Supreme Courts part regardless of how they "justify" their rulings ... even judges around the country are being financed by the same entities ... but I cant sympathize too much with those who willingly chose their path. And this so called "Citizens United" ruling is a disaster to democracy on a historic level at that! ... so the growing movement to overturn it and change the way campaign financing is done today cannot be soon enough. Again ... you will have those who say ... "it cant be done" ... "this is just how it is" ... "it's the new normal", etc ... in fact there is nothing "new" about it, it is a rehash of the same type corruption that has went on historically not just in this country and it's era, but all over time and again ... so as usual ... it needs to be challenged. Moving backwards and losing everything you've fought for, earned and accomplished, is NOT a "new thing" or "moving forward" ... it is an old thing and moving backwards to the same ole shit. I myself and millions of others dont say "it cant be done" ... actually anything that can be "done" can also be "undone" ... period.

In fact, there are many ideas out there of what we do need to change, many groups/ movements and growing by the month. Some politicians have proposed to simply make those who donate/ contribute to campaigns disclose who they are and what they support or whatever ... that is a nice start ... but not nearly good enough in my opinion, and nothing more than political stalling out of fear ... I mean ... that's about as lame as the jokes to make politicians wear name patches on their suits like race car drivers of their sponsors. The bottom line is ... that the overall majority of people in this country WANT the money OUT of politics ... simply telling us who is putting in the money and showing the routes of it, does or means nothing, it just makes the corruption more transparent and acceptable is all ... it doesnt stop it. The other political puppet talk about limiting the millions one of these billionaire contributors can put in also does nothing, since they will have more backdoor legislation made to allow multiple contributions using different identifications of groups. They alwayz pull these cheap nickel and dime treats out of their pockets like any hustler trying to sell you something of lesser value for an outrageous price ... kind of like those mega cable TV/ tele companies, where you want to buy a couple channels in particular, but they design this twisted package where you have to buy a dozen more channels you dont even want to get the couple you do want, then they lock you into a type contract thats almost as strict as a property lease! ... it's worthless basically ... and the long term price we pay will harm our people and country. I myself feel we need some type of public funded elections that are engineered to work better than what we have and way more transparent ... so simply removing some of the stealth of the wealth doesnt work too well either, and what we have now worx lousy, period. Who will pay for it some ask? ... with all the money this country wastes on these special interests/ projects/ military invasions that are corporate inspired, breastfeeding the Richie Rich's with subsidies in the billions in taxes as if they were helpless and homeless ... you can bet your ass, there is wayz to fund it well ... and WITHOUT cutting ANY social services, Social Security, pensions, medical/ healthcare programmes, etc ... I am confident and would bet on it!

Also something has to be done to improve and boost the voting in this country ... just in the last mid- term election voter turnout was at a low not seen since like WW2 (PBS) ... it needs addressing ... many even suggest someway to automatically register everyone to vote ... which I feel is a good start ... although on the other hand, I dont feel it would be very democratic to force people to vote against their will, but to have that quick available easy option without a bunch of unnecessary complications to try to vote is a plus. More and more younger folks are joining in which is a plus, and we need to show more support to them and their groups even financially, since they will carry on future decisions ... and to try to halt some of the voter suppression we been seeing that is also funded by some of these same entities ... even Bernie Sanders proposed a national election day ... which dont sound like a bad idea. So there are plenty of wayz and ideas along with the tools to change what we have and really move forward in our benefit and interest ... I mean ... we cant just follow or depend on billionaires to do for us and decide for us, eh? ... they are busy protecting their interest's. And I dont hate wealth and those with it ... many have wealth and earned it, deserve it, and their voices should be heard as well ... their right to vote, etc. Calling for automatic voting registry or related and even publicly funded elections can even be conservative as far as spending, and save billionaires a bundle (even though I am sure they have wayz to get us to pick up part of their spending tab, just like on much else), and saving them worry and time ... and everyone's money and voice gets distributed more equally and efficiently in the elections process ... at the same time, those with billion's still have their lobby groups they are paying to represent their voice on Capitalism Hill (aka Capitol Hill) ... so we are NOT depriving them of anything ... I believe we should be fair with them as well ... after all ... that's the spirit of democracy, eh?


Word Out ....



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


***** POST NOTE: When it comes to campaign financing though, I am a bit more strict in my opinions/ thoughts than most, being that I would not just prohibit millionaires/ billionaires, but ALL organizations profit or non- profit, including labour unions, churches/ religions, etc ... it would be ALL government paid and sponsored, and equally ... and not on a left/ right favour either. I also believe we need to at least triple or more the amount of mainstream political parties and be way more diversified ... I mean like ... who in these times just really and naturally thinx left or right ONLY ... without being programmed to? And in all fairness to the U.S.Supreme Court ruling here, I have NO reason of fact to think that the court was biased or that their intentions were left/ right based or to allow some of these mega- groups of wealth to buy elections or related ... laws are complex and good attorneyz know how to work and present their cases. And that's just the way it worx with court rulings/ decisions ... most may work well, but some dont work as well ... BUT ... this is what ended up happening as a result of their ruling. The Supreme Court ruling from what I read ... DID NOT or WAS NOT a decision to give any billionaires a right to directly fund a politician or party with these Super PACs, but was simply based on "free speech" laws for these to spend sort of indirectly unlimited amounts to influence through advertisements and other wayz their choice candidate/ party. So for me, it is more importante to protect the best we can our government, which is ALL our body and voice (this is our's, like an asset, it's not for sale or on the auction block) ... and in particular the legislative branch, especially as diversified and large as our population is and our domestic need's, and if that means stricter oversight, rules, transparency or cutting some of the excessive waste of our taxes on pet projects or foreign occupations including being global militarized police watchdogs for multi- national corporations, investment bankers, or limitations to make our government function properly, etc ... I am ALL for it. Some of these entities that spend so much time trying to buy our government and assets love to gamble and splurge money and take chances using others money ... yet they dont want to actually put out any "out of pocket" expenses of their own.

FORGOTTEN WARRIORS of America's Land, Western Interior Sea & Air ... When the WILD WEST was REALLY WILD ... The "MEMORIAL DAY" Edition ... (ABOVE & BELOW PT.18) & (THE OTHER TENANT'S PT.11)






This posting to serve 2 series of this journal "Above & Below" and "The Other Tenant's" ... and sort of a Memorial Day posting with a twist, not like the ones I do in the "Veterans Spotlight" series for our military veterans ... but this posting to look at and honour those forgotten warriors who fought and died naturally on America's land, sea and air before our species arrived. A time before human written rules, laws, religions, politics and man-made filth/ pollution ... in the area we call now North America and it's lost sea ... the Western Interior Seaway (Wikipedia), a time when what we look at as the wild west was really wild, a time before any of the human type species (sometimes humorously thought of as God's little personal Teddy Bear's) ... and my "guess" is that there were more human/ hominin related type species going even further back than what we know and discovered so far. But this was a time of survival of the fittest basically, when kill or be killed was the natural law of the land, sea and air. I hear folks alwayz saying they wish they could time travel to the future, with me I alwayz wanted to go back in time to see what it was like before any of what we have now, or to actually see before there was life on this planet, or maybe see the start of our solar system, the natural action and reaction chaos of planet/ body collision or meteor strikes, etc. I also met folks that did not believe there may have been a sea where we stand today in Dallas for example ... but fossils dont lie ... lying is a human specialty. I remember once a couple decades ago when they were building the first subway tunnels under North Central Dallas, workers got sick, it was reported that they were sickened from gas let off from ancient sea turtles. I added a couple video's below found on YouTube ... the first some fossil exhibits and background,  and the last one simply for the beautiful artwork in it.

RHYTHM SOPHIE/ TOM STORMY TRIO: "Rockabilly Rhythm", "Gotta Gimme What'cha Got", "Finders Keepers" & "Folsom Prison Blues"




***** RHYTHM SOPHIE/ FACEBOOK




Rhythm Sophie & Long Tall Sonny


This entry for the music/ arts honour roll society will be to honour and take a listen to a rhythm & blues vocalist out of Budapest, Hungary ... Rhythm Sophie, which I wanted to have some of her work in here for sure because she is a vocalist that I love her style and voice. Sophie has been moving up and getting alot of work in Europe over the last few years, she worx with various artists, below with Tom Stormy Trio and a really great guitarist Long Tall Sonny with some really smooth licks and others, covering much from traditional American rockabilly, blues, western, swing, etc ... I do like her in the rockabilly genre personally, but she can do much more ... the old school styles are her specialty with a fresh twist. Others that she would fit in well with on a bill as far as rockabilly would be Rev.Horton Heat and Stray Cats as my choices. Other than that I dont have alot of history on her ... I just love her ... and the other musicians she worx with here are great! Wishing them success and looking forward to more ... Enjoy!

JADE HELM 15- MARTIAL LAW & The Militarized Police TAKEOVER of America ... Being PROACTIVE vs. OVERREACTIVE ... The "Cries & Lies of the WORLD CONDITION" Edition (CORPORATCOMMUNAZICA PT.9)






I was meaning to do a posting on this "Jade Helm" thing, because I have talked to several folks in Texas about this who live in the more rural areas/ smaller towns over the last few months ... and a blogger I know Infidel753 up in Portland mentioned this to me the other day, asking me what I thought about the heavy talk here in Texas about it. I was slow in doing a posting simply because I was sick of hearing and reading up on it, but I will do this posting putting it into the "Corporatcommunazica" series as Part 9, because it is mostly connected to the corporate style inspired communism that we see today, where your largest holders of wealth have control over many of the largest banks, markets and corporations ... which all have a control over the American and global politics as well as our military, so not just in America. In a way, we all have a common enemy as people, regardless of our race/ nationality, religion, gender or political affiliations ... again ... this is "our" personal experience in 2015 America ... but the whole so called free world is being dominated by the same crap, which I have wrote about quite a bit throughout related series in this journal since it's start. First I linked to some brief newsread and video below, then I will add my perspective following and try to simplify it to an extent.

***** ALEX JONES/ INFOWARS: CAUGHT IN A LIE: JADE HELM 15



***** FACT CHECK.ORG: Jade Helm Not Martial Law



***** KXAN- NBC/ AUSTIN: Gov.Abbott directs Texas Guard to monitor Jade Helm 15 operations


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


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



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


Alex Jones is mainly being attacked as America's No#1 conspiracy theorist and those that follow and agree with him. Alex and folks like him are self described "Constitutionalists", some folks and even some in government dont like Constitutionalists, yet when their rights are violated or cant get certain legislation passed, they run to embrace the very thing they previously didnt like to support ... the Constitution. Folks like Alex are also ridiculed for it by politipop- culture, President Obama himself was a senior Constitutional lecturer at a University, the President though is not criticized and labeled as such by the pop- culture (the President is truly bipartisan even, yet called a socialist, commie or muslim), ANYONE who speaks truth or questions, or has a fair amount of integrity, or speaks out of the box, etc, is pigeonholed as a "nutcase" or "extremist" in our pop- culture society ... others such as Ralph Nader, Sen.Elizabeth Warren, ex- Congressman Dr.Ron Paul, Sen.Bernie Sanders, Congressman Alan Grayson, Sen.Ted Cruzex-Navy Seal & Gov.Jesse Ventura, Rev.Jeremiah Wright and ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner as examples are also criticized as extremist/ nuts for what they do or say ... even today, our Department of Defense call's the founding fathers of our nation extremists. But Alex and those associated are just concerned is all, and who can blame them? I mean ... what you have is a nation (USA) full of lies and bullshit, pre- paid politics, partly controlled media, constantly screwing the American people out of one thing or another, ratholing all the wealth, tearing down our standards of living and pushing austerity, manufacturing wars, occupations and invasions that are not freeing anyone or making things more so called democratic, but basically raping the earth of all it's resources, life, labour and anything of trade/ monetary value, and if anything ... destroying any definition of democracy. That IS WHY you have conspiracy theories, questions, skepticism and anger ... so Alex is not a crackpot and at least should get some credit if anything for bringing this to light ... he is just passionate and full of energy ... even though I sure as Hell dont agree with all he sayz. I even will credit Gov.Greg Abbott/ CCP (Corporate Communist Party) of Texas for including the Texas Guard for oversight, and I sure as Hell disagree with the Governor on damn near everything he does, and sure as Hell didnt vote for him (I voted for Wendy Davis) ... but it gives some of those more rural area Texans where this is a strong presence a bit of calm knowing this.

I felt that JH-15 is also healthy as an exercise for our military, being the various terrains they chose to do it in, and especially during the hottest months here in the southwest for that desert atmosphere, the woods, mountains etc. One of my daughters best friends since childhood for instance is being shipped out to Afghanistan soon (U.S.Navy) and she will not be able to attend my daughters wedding ... when we can get our military to exercise at home and a more realistic atmosphere besides simply on base, I feel it's a plus. I also thought especially in some of the towns that it would be great business for local businesses ... I mean ... there is going to be alot of spending on recreation, eating, shopping, etc. I feel it is also good to be on at least home soil other than foreign soil, and we sure have the land mass and terrain for it ... and it's less expensive. At the same time it gives us citizens a closer view of military preparations, procedures and information that we may not otherwise have easy access to ... and help's form a sort of kinship between the citizens and those serving in duty, which makes it harder for those who serve to go against their own down the line. Foreign war preparations are necessary, we seem to be in constant war and America has more enemies because of our actions than we had in a long time.

As far as martial law ... again ... there is no need to impose martial law ... there are more laws, curfews, restrictions and surveillance as it is than you can shake a stick at. Understand that the last thing those of wealth and power would want to do is impose a solid militarized police state or martial law ... it IS SO disruptive to societies, business, the markets, and would have a global ripple effect and promote chaos in some form around the globe, not just here, besides, they do pretty good controlling the masses with bullshit media, propaganda and scare tactics as it is ... remember, their No#1 God is money/ wealth. But YES ... these exercises WILL be used for civil disobedience or domestic terror or any other uprise of revolt as well if necessary ... why would they not be?, they're simply economizing on their training. Those who say they would never use any of this against American's on American soil are also full of shit/ lying or blind/ deaf, whether they are citizens, government or military officials. Are there people at the top preparing for civil war, large scale civil disobedience or related? ... of course there is ... with all the anger out there from people, they would be stupid to not prepare ... they know what to expect ... and they have reason to, I mean ... they created this corrupt cesspool and know they angered alot of people, there are consequences for your actions at some point, no matter what level of wealth you are in.

Being proactive is healthy ... those who rule over us certainly are ... shouldnt we be as well? And being overreactive can be unhealthy for either side. The people in our nation are partly to blame for the current condition we have, as well as similar conditions in other parts of the western world. But especially here in America, we spent too much time not paying atencion to what those in power been doing for year's, we lacked to vote in large numbers and dont even utilize all the tools we have. There are people all over this globe who only fantasize that they would have the tools we have such as rights, courts, constitution and all else we have ... let's face it, we got lazy on these issues, spending too much time appeasing some of these ingrates that control instead of demanding what we should. The healthy part of all this is that we learn from it, which will get us off our ass eventually. As far as those at the top that think they can just control this country with any methods of such they dream up in conflict ... dont fool yourselves, wealth is also intoxicating and can numb your brains ... it is difficult as it is to even stabilize places like Iraq or Afghanistan for example with populations of maybe 30+ million or so, who are not nearly as well armed, or with the tool's and resources as American's, or with a population pushing nearly 320 million and geographically much larger ... so be careful how cocky you get and make good in this country so you dont have a bigger mess on your hand's.
