***** The Black Flag Meets Alison From 'Maid of Ace' | The Black Flag- Alternative Music & Culture ... (interview)


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



This posting and entry for this blog's 'music/ arts honour roll society' is a must, to honour and showcase the work of "Maid of Ace" out of Hastings, UK ... an interview linked above. This crew is in the 'excellence' category as far as raw UK Punk that has a classic UK Punk touch to it, MOA is just a class act period! MOA are all sisters (biologically), and started messing around on their instruments back in 2004 playing covers in their cramped attic at home, got their first gig 2005, in a local school they attended. Stuff they liked to cover and practice with that influenced them as kids, was classic old school punk and rock like X-Ray Spex, Joan Jett, L7, and The Distillers, to name a few. Besides a couple singles here and there and CD, they didnt put out their first full album "Maid Of Ace" till 2014, then their 2nd album "Maid In England" in 2016 ... both albums were self released (no label). While they were popular as a local band for gigs in Hastings, because they say that Hastings was kind of a boring town, they still had to work regular jobs. From what I gathered, they also got to do a short tour with "A Pretty Mess" crew out of LA, here in America, which amounted to only about a half dozen shows or so in California and Arizona only ... they also got to play at the "Rebellion Festival" in the UK. But this crew has a fast growing number of fans in UK, many new gigs lined up and been getting to do more work in France, Germany, Austria and Czech Republic, and they are looking forward to expanding that. I dont know if this crew was actually serious about making music on a professional level, besides just putting a bunch of YouTube vidz out, but then just started to make complete songs from bits and pieces of jam materials they had, put them together and pumped it out. No doubt that they didnt get into this to even make a living, and knew how poor most of their following was, and wasnt seeking a label. I dont even think this crew knows just how good they are at what they put out ... they were blown away, when Poly Styrene of X- Ray Spex in an interview named them on the airwaves as one of her favourite bands. I can clearly though, see why Poly being a veteran and one of the cornerstones of UK Punk liked them so much. They even have many old schoolers like myself that show up at their gigs because of their classic sound, and a growing new generation of fans as well. In my view, they would fit perfectly touring with another kick ass newcomer like "Svetlanas"! Another UK Punk icon for over 4 decades is U.K.Subs, great stuff!

After sifting through much on YouTube, looking for the best audio and visual available, I selected 5 to showcase here. Much credit also to Mark Richards, who they known for a long time, he does all the filming and directing for their music vidz, and he really done some good work on that end. I wanted to open below with "Bone Deth", because of how much I like how Abby rips the shit out of the song on that basic drum kit. Some really good blending of guitar work in this stuff from Alison and Anna. Alison, Anna and Amy really have some good vocal harmony they mix in well. The heavy thunderous bass work of Amy, and the style in which she rolls, reminds me so much of Gary Thain back in 1973 with Uriah Heep. I closed with the official video for "Made In England", which to me is the type of composition that can easily become a future classic covered by others ... similar to how "Anarchy in the UK" of the Sex Pistols is a popular covered classic today by crews. Looking forward to them putting out that album No#3, and getting more work in many more countries to pay the bills ... and hope they continue to have as much fun doing it to come as they did starting, and best of luck .... Enjoy!

This posting will be for the "Abby Martin", "American Exceptionalism", and "Public Patriots" series of this journal/ blog. I wanted to include Abby in the "Public Patriots" series for awhile, because of her hard work and staying in the trenches in America and even foreign countries, to give us news that many corporations would not allow on the mega media giants they own. Abby supplies information/ media to thousands of people per day. I been tuning in to Abby for several years myself. Folks like Abby are labeled as radical extremists, conspiracy theorists, troublemakers and much else, because she points out what is not politically correct or fashionable. Thanx to Abby for the title of this posting, and Thank You to Jimmy Dore for sitting down with Abby, one on one. She is someone to be heard out, regardless if you may agree with everything or not, she been straight up ... I dont agree with everything, but most. Videos below total about 48 minutes combined, but well worth the listen. After below, I will write my part.

Thomas Hudson Pickering/ Ranch Chimp & wife Rosalie



I really like the info that Abby compiles and her views, have for awhile ... and no, Abby is not currently working for RT either. But as far as media is concerned, I go to various sources for mine, I go to mainstream, non- mainstream, left and right both, and even controversial types. I do think mainstream though does a pretty good job, especially locally ... but again, I realize that there is so much that they are not allowed to cover too, for various reasons, whether it's from the corporate owners, or because they have only so much that they can print/ tape, so of course, even without corporate control, they have to prioritize ... but they all have their slants, just like flavours. The great thing today, is the abundance of sources that are easily accessible to the average Joe/ Jane ... and much investigative journalism ... but too, with such an abundance and so many slants, including fake shit, you have to read between the lines, and just not take it all as gospel truth, dont even take any gospel as truth ... finding evidence is importante. On the other hand, if it wasnt for alternative media, we would be in worse shape, as far as what news we do get, especially in these times. These top journalists in mainstream are mainly in fear of losing their jobs, money is a key issue that holds so many hostage. I'm happy when I see folks like Ed Schultz and others able to go to a place like RT and get work, or go indie. This doesnt mean that I fully trust Russian state sponsored news, any more than I would trust Putin. And I view Putin as a strong leader, not that I agree with him, but he has shown to be strong and determined. I dont view Trump as a strong leader, because all I seen so far, is a hustler and celebrity, that talks alot of shit and tweets shit online only for a bunch of blind followers. As I was telling a guy here in Dallas the other day that is new to RT, RT is giving these journalists a spot to cover any damn thing they want, as long as they dont bad mouth Russia ... to me, that is worth taking advantage of. But U.S. also wants to put alot more pressure now on folks like RT, so I have to support RT's media too, because I'm also a sort of constitutionalist.

As far as the popular talk about Russia being the cause of all our problems ... I see the U.S. as the cause of our problems, I mean, we made our own bed through our actions. The U.S. is working on expanding their power, while trying to preserve as best their existing powers. Countries like Russia, or even China, knows what the American agenda is (to transform their governments, to be more corporate owned like ours, and they already have India long ago where they want them) ... those countries also want to expand their power, so I see this as just the repeating history of empires in competition to sustain and expand powers. We helped make Russia and China of today, with our style of capitalism, we asked Russia to "tear down that wall", and join us for business in the 80's, we been giving business galore to China for decades as well. We spent plenty even after WW2 investing in Europe and rebuilding. We created good jobs in America throughout the industrialization period, and created a huge consumer pool market of Americans, that money rolled over to build up others countries to expand, we made the business, we made the trade deals. Whether it is China, Russia or even Saudi Arabia, U.S./ western corporate and finance played a major role in making them the wealth and military powers they are today, so this has been the formula for the transformation of our economies, societies, sciences and technologies for the last century. What we commonly call democracy and free trade today, is basically another old school 19th century idea called "neoliberalism". This has been in the making for years, as far as what we have today, and so many countries have freely participated, and many new player countries, but also, have many questions on how everything is working, and who will come out ahead in the long term. When we do oil and defense business with Saudi Arabia for instance, it is just for us to expand our territory as well. Not just the U.S. empire, but any empire, including Russia or China as examples (I choose to use the word 'empire'), dont have any issues with human rights violations, as the people of these countries do, their objective is to gain ground and power. None actually care about womens rights, LGBT rights, workers rights or whatever rights of people. And neoliberalism is here to stay for awhile, all these leaders know this. This is why it is the peoples responsibility in whichever country, just like any other time throughout history, to make sure that we have a say so in molding that future and transformation, as far as any rights, regulations and rules, sovereignty, trade, etc. And it's not only individual countries and people that have questions on this neoliberal expansion, even the IMF has concerns, as you can see in the "Fortune" link below. IMO, neoliberalism in its current form without heavy revisions, oversight, regulations and so forth, can destroy itself easily, in a short time ... and right now it's on steroids.


***** FORTUNE: Even the IMF Now Admits Neoliberalism Has Failed ... (newsread)


As far as all this intervention we are involved in with our defense/ military ... that too, in my view, is way out of order, and mainly dictated by those who ratholed all the wealth, and are pushing the neoliberal global agenda. The increase in defense spending is ridiculous, and a waste of good money ... were shelling out too much. Plus on top of it, we have to cover losses with our intake revenues from taxes, half the bloody damn $4 trillion a year we take in, in taxes and fees goes to this militarization shit ... and whether defense, corporate or investors, our taxes have to cover losses and subsidies. Just like, if Wall Street takes a hit, we shell out, if big oil has a spill/ disaster, we shell out, if CEO's need more money, we shell out, etc, etc. We got a $20 trillion debt (MarketWatch), and maxed out our credit cards basically, and you know damn well, that we will have another financial crisis, in time. How hard that next crisis is, depends on how we manage our spending priorities, and just letting Wall Street run amok and decide all the strategies will burn us all. I mean, this is for the markets "good" as well, as far as regulations ... you give a pound of heroin to a junkie/ addict and put them in a room to manage their usage, they will be dead in a short time. This is why I'm opposed, in these times in our current circumstance, to even any further tax breaks, besides maybe 'some' for the middle and working classes, which will feed our nations economy ... but that too, to be limited. I'm pro- taxation ... but much more careful oversight of how them taxes are used. We have created a culture of overspending and waste. Our defense priorities should not be so much carpet bombing areas abroad to knock off some group of ragtag rebels, as much as it should be to upgrade our cyber defense, and building more nukes is a waste of money as well, we have adequate defense as it is to take on any country in the world that may try to attack us. And like Abby said, those next generations that we bombed their families accidentally or intentionally that are innocent, will come back and bite us in the ass, in time ... folks will avenge the deaths, and resist our muscling in their affairs and taking all their wealth and resources. None of the top wealth gives a shit about this, any more than they give a shit about the environment ... again, it is our responsibility to counter this, and pressure our leaders. And if we cant do it peacefully at the legislative end, we need to take to the streets ourselves and use force. Critical needs spending is needed more here in infrastructure, and "public" investing by government, replacing outdated infrastructure, and also planning for the extreme weather from global warming events that will damage and paralyze our major coastal towns and put us in a deeper financial mess at the same time. More needs to be spent here on renewable energy infrastructure, since this will be bigger than ever as far as usage and business in the near future. We are also leaving too much defense equipment in these other countries that we invade or occupy, we are also arming too many, that we dont know what they may use those arms for, or even against us or allies.


***** THE WASHINGTON POST: More than 400 millionaires tell Congress: Don't cut our taxes ... (newsread)


The economy right now is in boom mode, the markets are doing great, profits are at record highs, we have also created a new generation of wealth and entrepreneurship, and a new middle class in the techs, science, finance, etc, we have the fastest economic growth in 3 years at 3%, and a vast amount of private investment/ development going now coast to coast ... and this all came without cutting any taxes on the wealthiest. There is not enough reason to believe that these proposed tax cuts will all just miraculously be invested in America, or jack up pay scales much in the type of global economy we currently have ... 50 years ago, it may have done so, but now is a different ballgame. A tax cut plan that locks in the corporate to be permanent, and the individual cuts for 8 years, at that. So ... why would hundreds of millionaires and billionaires, as in the above Washington Post link, say they dont care about another tax break? They dont want to exacerbate inequality any more than we have, because that is bad for business and the economy ... forget the $1.3 trillion or whatever addition to the debt, at $20 trillion, that isnt going to matter much anyway, that's already in the shitter. What does matter is keeping social order and folks producing and spending, especially here at home ... that is good for business, good for people and consumers, and good for those investing. In my view, now is also not the time to cut social services either, just so those small percentage at the top can have more money/ assets in their pockets and offshore. I alwayz supported capitalism, as a tool as well for reducing poverty and hunger, and improving our quality of life on every level. To me, things like food stamps distribution, especially now with all this new wealth, is also healthy for business ... it creates jobs and gives a stimulus to struggling smaller businesses, reduces petty crime, and gives the masses more confidence and security. Medicare/ Medicaid expansion, the same thing with me ... it's a plus for domestic business too. There is plenty of new jobs, but also, people are struggling to make ends meet and many paycheck to paycheck, helping these folks is healthy for our society, both financially and psychologically. When we invest in these people, the money stayz here and generates more business here, it doesnt end up all offshore in foreign countries, except on the trade end, but has a positive impact in our country. And the rich dont lose a thing over it, and they even can sleep better, not having to worry about disorder and disruptions, strikes and whatever else in business ... everyone benefits. Many investors in real estate are building new homes/ condos/ apartments for high dollar leasing/ sales, this is where we need to expand our public investment to give incentive for a new boom in affordable housing as well. You may not alwayz be able to sell/ lease million buck housing, but there will alwayz be a high and much larger demand for affordable housing. Massive affordable housing private investment with government subsidizing is a winning investment for future growth, stability, productivity, social order, and to reduce homelessness.


***** NEWSWEEK: Republicans Are Creating Civil War, Democrats Need to Get Their 'Shit Together', according to campaign donor ... (newsread/ video)


The politics in this country is really in the shitter too, and everyone is feeling the pinch on that. Some Republicans are even worried, that if they dont get through this tax plan, that their campaign funding will take a hit come 2018 and 2020. There is also alot of conflict in their party, just like with Democrats, and an all time low in public confidence with both parties. They have sex scandals/ misconduct, corruption and collusion investigations, etc, against them too. I agree with Abby as far as having one party, in the way that they are both dependent on neoliberalism support and ideas, the only difference between the parties is mostly on some social issues. To me it's like having a far right wing party (republicans), and a moderate right wing party (democrats), and frankly as far as the majority population's needs in this country, collectively they have been about as worthless as tits on a bull. The Democrats through the DNC, are taking a hit because of their own inner conflict ... when Donna Brazile came out with her book "Hacks", talking about a rigged 2016 campaign/ primary (POLITICO Magazine), the Democrats wanted to sugarcoat and forget it, but it is something that needs to be discussed and addressed amongst Democrats, I also voted straight Democrat in 2016, but of course like many others suspecting some scamming and not staying neutral. Some of the more left progressive people, are blaming this on Hillary Clinton, I do not blame Hillary Clinton on this one ... I blame the entire incompetence of the DNC, including Schultz and Brazile, where the fuck did they pick up Wasserman Schultz, at a yard sale? Especially the spending, management, and organizing, I seen people on food stamps manage a budget better and more organized. After all, Hillary had to actually bankroll these dumb asses and bail them out, they were broke, mismanaged spending in the last election, were getting ripped off by consulting fees, etc. Hillary in turn wanted to organize it her way, and because of what she had to shell out of her own money, needed to have most incoming donations going to her campaign to be able to have enough to finance and challenge the GOP as far as money. This made states like mine have to take a hit and shortchanging us on distribution funds ... I live in a red state, our metro areas in Texas are blue, but the surrounding state is red, and saturated with gerrymandering and Republican rigging. We have a sitting governor (Abbott) running for re- election with $40 million already to burn on his campaign, and more to come in ... we have our own campaign funding challenges here as it is, we dont need Washington's DNC fucking it up more for us. And both these parties are in fear and held hostage by their donors, even the Democrats got threatened the other day about being cut off if they even lean at all more left, from donor Stephen Cloobeck, as you can see above in the Newsweek link. This all clearly shows how the money in politics is tearing us apart, and there is no better time than now, for campaign finance reform. Since the SCOTUS ruling of "Citizens United" (wikipedia) of 2010, our politicians and parties have been too much focused on being able to outspend each other, this whole damn campaign finance thing is in desperate need of reform, and not just people are sick of it, but even many politicians are growing sick of it.

VETERANS DAY 2017: Having The BACKS Of Those Who Have YOUR BACK ... DEFENDING Liberties with the Chemistry of DIVERSITY ... The "Liberty & Justice For ALL" Edition ... (VETERANS SPOTLIGHT PT.48)

Related image



This posting will be a Veterans Day posting, and serve as Part 48 of the "Veterans Spotlight" series of this journal/ blog. Our veterans are a reflection of the diversity of this country, from different backgrounds, different endeavors and goals in life, and even different reasons they wanted to enlist. But they all took that oath to protect and defend the U.S. and Constitution, and all enjoy what liberties we do have. These are the folks that when push comes to shove, because of that commitment and oath, willingly are ready to put their lives on the line to cover our back if called to. We civilians dont alwayz agree with some of the missions or wars abroad that our country is involved in, and we have that freedom to speak out about what we disagree with. The soldier/ veteran doesnt get the luxury of deciding where we should be or not, that is decided by those in Washington ... but that soldier is ready to deploy if and when that call comes, regardless if they may disagree or not. To make that kind of commitment, knowing that you are offering your life if necessary is a big thing (some would never do that). The discipline, strength and integrity that they embrace in that service, many carry throughout their lives, even years later ... it's a commitment, and sticks with many. The rest of us as civilians should alwayz have their backs as well, and do our part in making sure to ... either through contacting and petitioning our legislative branch of government, voting, and supporting those veterans. I selected some videos of veterans below, out of many that I viewed, to showcase the diversity of veterans and Americans. Thank You for your service, and wishing the best for their Veterans Day.

NATIONAL EMP DRILL BLACKOUT ATTACKS NOV. 4, 2017: Grab Your GEAR, GUNS, GAS & ASS!! ... The "American Women Preppers" Edition ... (LADIES a Lil on the HOT & SPICY side PT.10)- (THE END MUST BE NEAR PT.12)

Image result for dod shutdown emp scare

Related image Image result for women preppers



This posting just for a little fun on this grey and misty Dallas morning ... and first off, Congratulations to the Houston Astros on their World Series Champions title defeating the LA Dodgers! This posting will serve the "Ladies a Lil on the Hot & Spicy side" and "The End Must Be Near" series of this journal/ blog. It's to view some of the recent hype concerning the Department of Defense electromagnetic pulse drill/ test, that is actually necessary, and done frequently. However, Thanx to Shareene Poole and her sister Shantelle McBride, of Muskegon, MI on Facebook ... there was a viral ripple reaction online, and of course, many questions as to why it is being done the same time Antifa will protest, although there is no actual proof it appears, that Antifa will protest. How will we survive it all without our phones, computers, and other gadgets, etc ... and all the death, chaos and anarchy that will come? And as I write this, millions are waiting for their new iPhone X, some camping out at stores and stuffing their mouths with junk food during the wait. Even if phones and internet, tele and such did get momentarily shut off ... trust me, you would live, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {:-)  The human species has actually survived thousands of years before any of the electronic computerized trinkets came along. Also for some added fun .... some on the far right are expecting a civil war to start this weekend from Refuse Fascism activists who are supportive of Antifa (The Guardian News).

We are alwayz these dayz hearing about preppers waiting and prepping for SHTF day ... and this posting will focus on the women preppers of America. There is not going to be any shut down though of a thing, I would bet on it, without the government or news having to even inform me. Why? ... because the day after Thanksgiving you have Black Friday retail sales, which also expanded to Thanksgiving Day sales all night as well with many retailers. All the holiday travel and hospitality business ... you have a President saying that you are going to get all this money in tax cuts next year, to make you go out and spend more now for the holidayz, etc. Too much money involved to shut down a damn thing, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {:-) ... rich folks still have use for you, so dont worry {:-) Besides, how would the top wealth keep track and control over the increasingly angry masses?, as far as where you are, what you spend, what you're doing, social groups, etc, etc ... if they were to shut down our phones or computers? Whenever you are not using your phone, credit/ debit cards, computers or related devices, they have a harder time trying to control you. Plus, this technology also makes it so they have more wealth than ever, and the masses are in more debt than ever, and how they have an unbalanced advantage in the stock markets, etc ... all this technology the wealth use as a tool, they sure as Hell dont want it to shut it down, they would hurt the most.

Below, I wanted to feature first up, Shareene, who is fired up and looking good ... you go grrrrl!, and credit to Shareene for inspiring this latest wave of fury. Then some voice and opinion from Jeannie Hardesty, who is ready to go at the drop of a hat in her recliner. Last at the bottom, we have Lisa Haven, who is someone I frequent her channel, who is alwayz ready and hungry for action. A link I also included from Lisa above her video, for a sale offer on her "prep/ SHTF/ doomsday" kit ... regular $117.00, on sale now for $67.00, and she accepts all plastic cards ... just charge it, don't worry, the corporations and their politicians are going to give you tax money next year! {:-) A link below Lisa from FOX News Milwaukee on what is really going down with this drill. This posting was NOT to insult preppers either, I know a couple in this part of the country, and they are good people. And to those folks that are going to demonstrate against fascism and this neoliberal corporate communism this weekend ... GET OUT THERE AND RAISE HELL!! ... that's what Democracy is all about! {:-)

DIA DE LOS MUERTOS/ TEJAS: Celebrating the LIVES of the DEAD Through The LIVING ... The "Viva la Vida" Edition ... (DIA DE LOS MUERTOS PT.2)- (HALLOWEEN PT.10)- (TASTE OF TEXAS PT.31)

Related image



This posting will be for the "Dia de los Muertos", "Halloween" and "Taste of Texas" series of this journal/ blog. Dia de los Muertos is another big celebration in America today, although it's a celebration of Mexico. Today it's even become commercialized in the States, everyone from Walmart to Disney to the mom and pop business is cashing in ... they even made a special series of Lottery tickets for it in Texas, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {:-) ... anything to make a buck in America, eh? But what's cool about it, is you can create your own costumes and makeup without having to go through the big corporations and have a good time. It's also like an added extension to the Halloween holiday, so if you're into partying, you can party for a few dayz straight. I myself alwayz enjoyed the pageantry and music of it, so it's alot of fun too. So ... you can honour the dead and leave a basket for their casket, as well as living life in remembrance of them and for them, so it's symbolic and cultural too. My first Dia de los Muertos celebration I went to was in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, who a friend, Isabella (RIP), took me to way back when I was fairly new to Texas, and a private ceremony after, out in a remote area south of Nuevo Laredo. I guess I was 19 at the time, and Isabella would have been 29 ... but it was fun and enlightening for me, because I never experienced this culture. Quite a difference for me, since I came to Texas from the north, and stayed in Montreal, Quebec (Canada) for awhile before coming here, in Montreal I stayed in the eastern part, which is the french language/ culture part (Saint Laurent Blvd in Montreal separates the french from the english). Below, I just wanted to highlight some of Dia de los Muertos here around Texas, from El Paso, Dallas, Terlingua, Corpus Christi, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin. I also included a link right below from USA Today, that I thought was pretty good as far as understanding the difference between Dia de la Muertos and Halloween, since many here in the states are just catching on to this holiday. Today's high temp in Dallas only made it in the 50's, and light rain throughout the day and night, so not the best night in Dallas for outdoor parties or Trick- or- Treating ... be careful and have fun.

TAX REFORM 2017: How The APPLE Of The EYE is a Pie In The SKY ... From Tax HAVEN to Tax HEAVEN ... The "Happy Pill" Edition ... (HOW TO PRIVATIZE AMERICA PT.16)

Image result for tax simplicity post card 2017

**** trump- tax- reform.pdf





WATCH: Speaker Ryan, House GOP leaders hold news conference ... Thanx to PBS NewsHour




This will be Part 16 of the "How To Privatize America" series. This is very boring, because it has to do with taxation, although it is something that Americans should be concerned about, and not get too excited over the hype and sales pitch of this. I mean, it's not as exciting or showcased in media as former President George H. W. Bush, Harvey Weinstein, or Bill O'Reilly groping and raping women. I'm not an economist or a tax accountant, but have alot of questions when I view these things, or whenever someone is trying to sell me something, that looks too good to be true. I actually posted the video above for humour, because of how funny it was, listening to the "American people and workers" pitch this is cloaked in, either they are a little slow in the head, or they think the people are. When these people have corporate/ banking attorney drafted legislation to do anything, and they say, that they are doing it for you, or their love for country, etc ... that there should make you stop and think ... I mean, why, in the type of dog eat dog economies we live in, would these folks suddenly love us? What did we do as the American majority to deserve such generosity from these types? Are they humanitarians, philanthropists? Actions speak louder than words they say ... the history of actions by some of these folks have been clear, as to their agenda. We should call this tax plan what it truly is, not the Trump plan, it should be called more like a Goldman Sachs or Koch Industries tax plan, a Wall Street stimulus plan or whatever. The 'tax filing postcard' I put in the heading, and that they are flashing in their talk, is what really made me laugh. Just look at it closely ... a postcard with 14 simple lines, just fill it in, drop it in the mailbox, eh? ... all your financial/ earnings info is exposed to anyone ... no social security number?, what about your name and address?, etc ... the President himself wouldnt use it, he wont even make his tax filings public as it is. I mean, it looks simple and appealing of course, but can we really simplify our complex tax system with a couple pages overnight like this? Even if we all did our own taxes, we would still have to go through the new tax book every year, to refer to charts, revisions, qualifications, etc. I would bet the tax preparation lobbyists must be furious when they see this, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {:-) ... can you imagine how much money/ business that would put them back? They say this is to compete in the global arena as far as corporate taxation, why?, so that we can try to outdo each other internationally to see who can get to the bottom first and eliminate all taxation and representative government?

I'm sure many folks in the working classes can get excited looking at getting a few hundred or a thousand bucks in their pocket every year. But the idea, that this will make folks run out and buy new cars, homes, take cruise vacations or whatever, is a bit silly. Get a thousand bucks that year ... you would be lucky to get a month of child day care with it. The whole reason we get excited when peanuts are thrown to us, is because they have us lowering our expectations year to year, and constantly squeezing us for a few more bucks ... and basically, so they can give it out to some of these fucken fruit loops on Wall Street ... while we should be sending them to get counseling for gambling addiction instead. The idea for economic stimulus they present to us, is that, when we give out these massive breaks to the top wealth, they will no longer use all their international or U.S. state havens and shell companies to divert earnings, profits, so we can close these loopholes ... and miraculously they will decide to bring all their money back home (U.S.). In turn, they say that these people will invest here and create millions of jobs, etc, etc. What is the incentive in this global arena of today, that would make one of them choose to hire an American here at home for $10 bucks an hour for example, over paying someone in China or wherever a buck ($1) an hour? Would small businesses just hire on many more folks without reason or business to? Would President Trump bring his investments and business in China and elsewhere here to America? Would his daughter Ivanka do it, with all her business in these poverty wage countries? As I was explaining to some guys here in Dallas the other day ... let us just say that this goes through (even though I think it may run into obstacles in the Senate), and all of the sudden we pay less tax and are in 'Prosperity Heaven' psychologically, corporations are getting even more of a free ride, and the top of the top, etc ... what about the tax revenues that we annually depend on for our public services and needs across the board ... what happens to them? Where is the money going to come from to take care of our country's needs and to balance the costs of this? This is where the 'privatization' part expands itself. Who has all the money now? ... the public/ government certainly dont, so we have to again, ask for the mercy and help of the top wealth to financially take care of everything we once done for ourselves. We will need to depend on them (the top wealth we handed over all our money to) for everything from schools, to police, fire, public parks and libraries, etc, etc ... to invest their money in, making it now, not the peoples/ citizens, but their exclusive ownership, and all profit driven by their shareholders. They already have a monopoly on so much including our health care ... they would have to privatize everything to the top wealth ownership ... and boom, there goes more of our voice, democracy, liberties ... as well as our capital/ assets.


***** MoveOn Petition: Not One Penny! No Trump Tax Cuts for the Rich!


These GOP politicians are so intoxicated like on happy pills, in their mental state of euphoria listening to them above, maybe we should call them 'dreamers', because I cannot find the math in anything I been reviewing, to even say this can work, and that our country as a whole would benefit economically. And it's nonsense having to listen to this talk about how high the taxes are ... sure, on paper/ law it looks high, but that's not the reality with all the loopholes, many dont pay squat in taxes. Right now, the markets are doing great, most on Wall Street are pumped up, profits at the top have broken records, etc. So why are so many people still living paycheck to paycheck, eh? Where are the tens of thousands of new jobs from all these new pipelines? The top wealth is NOT spending the money we have all collectively blessed them with ... instead, they are sitting on it and ratholing every buck they can. Many are just getting and stashing all they can, waiting for the next crash/ downturn, so they can all run to their algorithm controlled market slave computers, to short sell and whatever, to capitalize on the next downturn ... after all, even in a crash, while most lose ... those other few make off like bandits ... money doesnt disappear, it changes hands, eh? They dont need anymore breaks, they are over their limit, and we should be voting these people out of office that cater to these SOB's, we should be signing petitions, raising Hell, jamming their phone lines in Congress, etc. This last monday, I was first in line on first day of early voting in Dallas County, voting on every goddamn budget/ spending proposal and state amendment. With all the changes coming with AI/ robotics/ automation, we should be focusing more on tightening our giveaways to Wall Street, focusing more on our needs to come. I was talking with my son- in- law the other day, a corporate guy, who does his business in North and South American countries mostly ... they/ he been focusing on India now ... I asked "why India"? (even though I presumed why), he talked about their (India) new market and growing middle class, that everyone wants a piece of, that will surpass China even. That's the whole point here ... all this wealth knows this as well, they dont plan on doing jack shit for this country, they have their eyes elsewhere ... it's business, eh? The bottom line, is we need to look out for ourselves, instead of looking out for and feeding the top more ... they're doing great as it is. Below are some reads and videos, to take a closer look at this, from experts and their view. I even included David Stockman, who served in the Reagan Administration as Director of Office of Management and Budget, listen to what he has to say about this crap, while Reagan lover FOX News talking heads try to gang up on him, while kissing up to this garbage.

SANTA ROSA & MULTI- COUNTY WILDFIRES 2017 | ANTHROPOGENIC CLIMATE CHANGE PT.3: From FORESTS to CITIES in FLAMES, with Bioclimatologist Park Williams ... The "DIRE FIRE" Edition ... (GLOBAL WAR'N'ING PT.51)

Image result for santa rosa fires

Hotel guest, Rudy Habibe, runs for his life from the burning Hilton Wine Country Inn in Santa Rosa, monday 9 october 2017



This posting will be Part 51 of the "Global War'n'ing" series of this blog/ journal. I been following this all week (LA Times), so I wanted to record it in this journal ... and fires are still blazing out of control as I post this. The mainstream media been all over this like a cheap suit on sunday, and been doing a great job on covering so much of it. But again, there has been also a lack of discussion in media, as far as what is causing the intensity of these fires, just like when they covered Hurricane Harvey. For example, last night in prime time tele news with ABC Network, they were just talking about some downed power lines and transformers as being investigated as what caused these fires. These fires are even leveling cities like Santa Rosa, a major town in the north SF Bay Area, as well as the wineries ... the business/ real estate end is even enormous ... and not only up in the Bay Area, even threatening the LA/ SoCal area, and multiple counties between, with some of the highest real estate on the market in this country, you even have mansions of the wealthier classes being destroyed too. This is the reason why I wanted to avoid the mainstream talk, and go to a scientist to give some insight on the real issue ... so Thanx to Democracy Now and bioclimatologist Park Williams for covering this the way it should be. Sadly, between much of the mainstream media, political correctness, big oil/ gas/ coal influence, and politics ... we have to actually go to scientists to get any common sense, a straight assessment, and accuracy as to what our problem is. When these issues and discussions do come up in any of the mainstream, it's alwayz "inconclusive" talk ... saying that we dont have enough evidence and research yet to come to the conclusion that human activity is intensifying the extreme weather. Scientists have been pointing this out now for close to a half century, there has been more debates and research than you can shake a stick at, there is OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE if you just read the research/ findings, as well.

Since everyone is so concerned also about the buck ($$) or the economy, I myself being a sort of pro- business environmentalist, this is also proof as to what it's going to cost us for our prepaid ignorance. Right now (last I read recently), we are at a point where even a majority of people are seriously questioning our part in contributing to global warming/ climate change, more than half the folks in this country (about 2/3rd on average), whichever political side they belong to, are using common sense and saying to themselves ... "something is really wrong in what we are doing", they can see what the problem is ... because of how clear it's becoming. Sure, forest fires have been a way of life in much of the west, especially in California, but because of the weather changes and more extreme conditions, the intensity of these fires is escalating. You also have the Central Valley drought issues (ScienceDaily), a mega strain on agriculture, not just on California's economy, produce and prices, but the entire country. California alone dont even have nearly the resources they need to fight these fires, and you know that these smaller states sure as Hell dont, they are using everything they have, and for years have been using low offender prisoners even, both men and women to fight fires. And this is more than California, it is everywhere west from Colorado to Washington to Arizona, all neighbouring states are feeling this intensity. Want to talk about dollars and the economy? ... how do you think this is going to effect banking/ finance?, how about the insurance industry?, for examples ... who finances and insures the properties and businesses, eh? What will this do to our taxes?, especially now, while they are trying to gut them more to appease big money interests? As it is, all these big banks and insurers alone are going to have to depend on tax subsidies in all these disasters along with skyrocketed premiums and financial institution costs, just to stay afloat. Our tax dollars are already subsidizing these too big to fail entities, as well as things like big oil down to the CEO pay ... and you know damn well that they are going to be whining for financial/ tax help to Congress over all these new costs.

This is also why I'm so concerned in this series on infrastructure funding, and NOT just for inner city sugarcoating gentrification and over building/ development of private/ public money for million dollar condos and shopping centers (as you see now, coast to coast) ... will you be able to sustain property values, business growth, occupancy, sales, etc, for the long term on this type of investing/ subsidizing?, etc. (this type of subsidizing/ investing only benefits a very small sector). Because when the economy tanks, and all the investment roaches come out of the woodwork to do stock buy backs, short sells or whatever, while many of these development investments dont pay off as they were rushed into thinking they would on the short term hustle ... we will have to subsidize them even more as well, which means cuts to public services, and more subsidizing/ welfare for the investors that took a hit, eh? ... I mean, that's how our politics/ legislation on these things worx. We are not doing very well as far as combating extreme weather at this point (and this is global as well), public and private infrastructure spending and redevelopment planning are going to be key in not only safety, but especially the economy ... bottom line, the way we are doing things and with this climate change, we can get totally wiped out financially as time goes on. You need more investment and planning development around areas that will be hit most from flooding or fire, irrigation and desalination of water expansion, better draining, more expansion and use in renewable energies, and much other infrastructure needs. My stepgrandson, Jeremy, will get his bachelor's degree in "civil engineering" this coming May, global warming played a large role in him wanting to get into that field, he talked to me about it since in high school ... he is a young progressive in thought too. And Thanx to so many of our graduates today, that are thinking about change and fixing problems. Right now, oil investments are getting big incentives and tax breaks to get new investors into oil as example (of course, you wont hear much about that in mainstream media), we need more equal incentives to expand way more into other forms of energy too.

We are wasting and splurging way too much not just on corporate welfare, but also on funding unnecessary defense spending as it is, and every year that the defense spending budget grows, they have to spend that amount (like in any business/ company), to keep at least the same budget approval for the next year. Some folks say the damage is done and we just have to live with it, etc (as far as climate change) ... there is alwayz room for improvement and to clean house. We are so worried about being the global idol and role model ... while many are not loving us around the globe as much as we may fantasize. Last I heard, we are currently under this new administration, talking about even rolling back regulations for these oil/ energy producers that are already fucking up big time and cant even control themselves, causing economic damage as well as environmental. With a President engaging in these bitch fights with places like North Korea, while planning on shelling out billions more on that crap. You want to really make this country a leader, innovator, role model, etc? ... do something different that changes business as usual, and contributes to real progress that shines, and you will really be recognized and make your mark in the world and set a new trend and goals. Enough out of my mouth on this ... listen to Park Williams below, and read the PDF as well for some further insight. After that at the bottom I included some photos in a link of the aftermath of some of these fires, and some video as well.

ONE NATION UNDER GOD/ KEVIN M. KRUSE: How CORPORATE America Invented CHRISTIAN America ... PREYING on the PEOPLE with $$$$ & PRAYER ... The "Christianity Incorporated" Edition ... (CORPORATCOMMUNAZICA PT.16)- (HUMAN MORALITY PT. 23)

Image result for kevin m. kruse

Kevin M. Kruse | Department of History



First up ... my thoughts and condolences to the families of the victims killed and injured in the recent Las Vegas mass shooting/ terror attack (CNN- victims), before anything else ... the problem in this country is NOT concert goers or the musicians ... our problems are some of our politicians and the rest that I do in these series. This posting will be for the "Corporatcommunazica" and "Human Morality" series of this blog/ journal. It is to highlight some interviews with History Professor Kevin M. Kruse, concerning one of his books. This is a posting I planned on doing some time back, but like many, never got around to it, I have many things that I want to post on, stuff jotted down on paper, etc ... that I simply dont get to, so better late than never. What inspired it the other day, was the last posting I done concerning the NFL player National Anthem piece, so it came to mind again. Whether you agree with Kruse or not, it's healthy information for thought, so I think the guy is worth the listen. In fairness to Eisenhower, even founding fathers like Pres. George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, seemed to use religion/ God concept as a tool for the citizens, as far as promoting unity and virtue to build society on, and came from christian upbringing, yet their own beliefs as far as where they stood on denomination was questionable, prescribing a type of generic religion of sort for the public, but separating themselves, seeming more deist than anything. I've known many atheists and pagans with high moral standards, so I dont believe that a prescribed religion is the only way to achieve that in a society. Some video, audio, read/ transcript below ... then after below, I will add some of my own thoughts on the related.

Thomas Hudson Pickering/ Ranch Chimp



As for me, I think Kevin makes some really good points concerning todayz corporatization using religion, same as politics as a tool to take over everything ... they (oligarchs) see their version of todayz capitalism design as soul mates with the carefully created religious ideology they molded, in todayz popular culture package of neoliberalism. I dont really enjoy much doing postings on religion or even politics ... I do them because of the issues/ problems with both, as another one of millions of folks on online media to bring atencion to it ... I actually like to do music postings the most, and as far as I'm concerned, I have too much religion and politics in here, in the past I trashed several hundred postings I had in here. My views should be fairly clear in these series, for me, this is nothing new. I point out throughout related postings/ series about what I call the "3 entities" to simplify it some ... bottom line, the manipulation and control of folks by government, corporations/ banks and religions, more like institutionalized programming of the masses. Nor do I see any of this as having a thing to do with belief in God/ Allah/ Higher Power, or spiritual at all, to me it's like a newly revised and repackaging of power and wealth doing what they alwayz done for centuries. At the same time, considering the type of system and era we live in ... I dont see the idea/ design of capitalism or corporations as the problem, but just a handful and their culture of those at the top as being the problem. Same with religion or ones personal beliefs, just those at the top in clergy and who dictates and buys them as the problem, and you can bet on it, that they are not being guided by spiritual divinity. Spirituality shouldnt be about oppression, slavery, thievery, wars to invade nations to take everything they have, or make them think to your specifications, etc. Politics shouldnt be about a handful of oligarchs controlling what should be the peoples voice and representation with a governing body, etc, the structure of our government has nothing wrong with it, only those who try to contaminate it ... and taxes should be to benefit our societies, not to give it all to those who have too much to begin with. Banks, corporations and capitalism by design shouldnt increase slavery, poverty, despair, austerity, etc ... or to create monopolies that restrict fair trade instead of expanding it. So whatever definitions, semantics, labels and sugarcoating you try to peddle these ideas as ... is bullshit, so dont let them manipulate you as much as they try, that is where you lose. These systems are not designed badly, they are abused and contaminated by a few only.

I look at this neoliberalism, market, institutionalized commercialized religion being pushed by the west today, as like an extension of the Roman Empire, and when they get "too big and fail", when their empires fall and the masses see through them, another takes over ... using the same shit and motives, with a different packaging and sales pitch. When you look at it, everything is controlled and designed over the centuries, to revise, refresh and keep past failed empires, ideologies and such alive to benefit those who would lose their asses otherwise, if they didnt have control over it. As far as religion in Christianity for example that is talked about above ... I even view the Holy Bible/ New Testament as Constantine's Bible, although some would disagree with me, saying that it was not finalized till years after the death of the Roman Emperor Constantine (Constantine order to Council of Nicaea), and text centuries before Constantine. I see institutional Christianity the same, of Constantine, who brought it mainstream, and freeing christians from past persecution, around 313 AD, first recognized as Roman religion about 323 AD through 380 AD. For me it was Constantine who kick started and inspired it all, from the Holy Bible of "today", to the religious- political institution of Christianity. Did not Constantine have a so called "divine intervention vision", that guided him to incorporate it into military, and conquer everyone he could to obtain wealth, power and control of trade? ... of course he did, and even crediting his victories and power to it himself, it served as a political tool as well ... you know ... conquer, destroy, control and enslave, in the name of goodness, liberty and patriotic duty, sound familiar? Christianity as a political and monetary institutional form and tool, made its way to conquer so many lands east and west, the Inquisition was an institutional group in the government of the Catholic Church ... you dont bow to and obey the oligarchs, you suffer and die ... and not because it is the will of God, but of men. Even in conquering the Americas and its natives, it was full of bloodshed, war, slavery, oppression and thievery, etc. Adolf Hitler used institutionalized Christianity for the same reasons, and to eradicate/ execute humans that they didnt approve of existing ... the Ku Klux Klan also used Christianity as a tool for racism and killing blacks and undesirables in our country. A country in our time like Saudi Arabia with their Wahhabism, institutionalize and politicize the faith of Islam in the Arab world to do what those I pointed out above do with Christianity ... and to gain power, wealth, conquer lands, and keep indefinite control, and to exterminate humans, even of the Muslim faith, who do not bow and obey to them.

It is also popular thought, or what I see as propaganda, that these institutional/ political religions are growing in numbers and the masses are embracing them more and more ... all that IS REALLY happening, is those at the top are spending a fortune to promote more of its media propaganda. This is all bullshit as well to me, many folks may claim to be of a religious brand/ faith, or have faith in God, especially when times get tough like now, and austerity and oppression are imposed more, while people lose their liberties slowly, but noticeably ... but as far as people embracing this institutional and political religion, frankly, people are losing faith and trust in it, because many are seeing what it's all about ... as also historically happens in any culture and empire, over and over. The same as people are losing faith in the governments and their political party favourites and its prepaid flunkies ... there is actually a resistance to all this once again growing, much more than those embracing this garbage. Just like other times throughout history over thousands of years, when these institutions once again, get too big and fail, the majority of the people dump them and walk away. Which they historically alwayz do fail over time, and will fail again, as far as empires, religions, politics and their prepaid institutions ... so like a merry- go- round ... those at top will try once again to convince the masses that they and their institutions are the chosen saviours of humanity and all our problems, and design some new bullshit, to try to preserve their old bullshit. In the meantime between these recorded events in human history, the majority alwayz manages to slowly create changes and maintain a certain amount of liberties and even some new ones that are past due. It is the majority who make everything work, most of those at the top, dont do much of damn thing, which is why I dont see many as "elite", or care to ever bow to them or praise them ... I mean, frankly we dont need them ... for where would they be without us? As far as their bullshit, that they are serving or doing the will of God ... they are only using a concept of God, to serve and do for themselves, nothing else ... dont waste your time, life and energy on trying to gain 'their' approval. Because of the subject in this posting, I wanted to close out with a video from Jesse Dollemore below, of some of this "prosperity gospel" snake oil of today, that Houston televangelist Joel Osteen (wikipedia) peddles for millions ($$$$) to millions of folks. Enough from me.

This posting will be Part 53 of the "Public Patriots" series of this journal/ blog. This is a topic that is saturated in mainstream media today, and many folks are speaking out for or against this, including the President's constant tweet/ Twitter remarks, and just a real mess ... so I wanted to do a response posting myself on it. Above, an opening video with President Trump's views, first video below is from Dallas' WFAA sports anchor Dale Hansen and his viewpoint ... then below I wanted to include a response video as well from U.S. Secretary of Treasury Steve Mnuchin for a reason, as well as some newsread linked below. After, I will add my response to this mess.

***** SPORTSDAY | DALLAS COWBOYS: Players from almost every NFL team kneel, lock arms, more for national anthem: 'There is no greater unifier' ... (newsread)

This is actually incredible the way this is getting covered especially by this President, at least, the type of propaganda that this is being twisted into by the President and his circle. It's not really fair at all, is why I wanted to do this posting, and the media is also under pressure from power of corporate entities as usual. First of all, speaking about "free speech" and the limitations on such imposed by these folks ... the players have NOT said a WORD, they just took a kneel, kneeling is NOT speaking, bottom line. The protest that started with Colin Kaepernick, is concerning the injustice, excessive use of force, killing civilians, and the growing militarization of police in America ... it IS NOT about disrespect for our military, flag, or the country. This has nothing to do with the flag, military, or first responders ... it is a corporate promoted ball game, where corporations it appears, stepped in and took over as the NFL stopped taking their tax- exempt/ non- profit status. I'm sure that these young men care about this country, and this is exactly why they are doing this ... this is what democracy is all about in this constitutional republic, this is the American thing to do. When I listen to the President, he sounds more like a ruling dictator as the months go on, instead of a U.S. President ... as if he's a king (I think in his mind he looks at himself as a king). What has been happening in America more and more, is taking this patriotism talk to an extreme, and promoting big business sports and now controlling what used to be just simply fans wanting to open a game with the national anthem. This is being expanded through propaganda and pressure to try to make it mandatory, that we do the national anthem while showing support for corporate communism, which like in everything else, is taking over our sports, military/ defense and our representative government and legislation priorities. It is sickening enough, that there is hardly any stadiums left in this country that dont have the name of a multinational investment bank or corporation on them, the games are also to promote these entities, and you cannot even look at a field without a saturation of such. Even the commercials are oversaturated in these games promoting these same entities business, that seem to have a monopoly of sort on our so called free market.

The reason I wanted to put the Steve Mnuchin video above, is to show just how ridiculous this dictatorship type administration has gotten, the boldness of these SOB's in incredible. Mnuchin is also currently under investigation for using tax money for extravagant personal travel expenses (NY Daily News). Slow down a minute and watch the video, and ask yourself ... why in Hell do we have a Wall Street investment banker and hedge fund manager dictating what the NFL should do and what should be mandatory to prove patriotism? ... this is insane. How patriotic is our President?, did he serve this country in the military? ... no, Trump received 5 deferments from the draft, he done everything he could to AVOID serving to be honest here. Trump talks endlessly about American jobs ... yet he and his daughter Ivanka use cheap Chinese and Indonesian labour for their products, instead of bringing their jobs back here, they could still make a good profit using American labour, but refuse to. I could go on and on ... where is the patriotism? ... why are not veterans getting a big boost in support under his administration? The President tweets that NFL attendance is down because of this ... that IS NOT accurate, he is trying to push this as a sort of cheap propaganda from his phone. Actually the NFL players are making a fortune for corporations ... and the reason you have maybe some loss in attendance is because of the outrageous prices of tickets to see a game these dayz ... just talk to folks that you know in your town or online about ticket prices and outrageous food and drink concession prices. You can watch the game on your big screen tele with friends at home in HD or a sports bar, with better close ups and replays ... and drink real beer, not cheap draft beer and watered down drinx overpriced. It's bad enough what they are turning our sports activities into in this country, set aside all the cost milking.

President Trump complains about some of the penalties when players clash and some purposely out of anger may injure other players in unsportsmanlike conduct, the President sayz they're taking the fun out of the game, that we should promote injury and ask for blood as well. This is not bloody damn ancient Rome, and the President in 2017 is NOT supposed to be a fuhrer. Would you treat your son like that if he wanted to take up professional sports? ... of course not. Do you know why these players get paid millions to play? ... because they are what makes this multi-billion dollar industry work ... they also have to retire usually by 40 years old at tops because of the physical demand and injuries. Many of these players spend many hours as volunteers in their communities across America helping people and raising money for those in need ... what in Hell has this President done in America to show his patriotism for all this country done for him? Not just the players, but even the managers/ owners and coaches are sick of having the President tweet this garbage ... people like the President and his administration are always talking about staying out of business ... then why in Hell are y'all knee deep in it? These players need to stand up to this, I commend every single one of them and look at them as public patriots for taking the kneel position ... to me, these young men are far more brave and patriotic than the President of this country ... these young men represent what actual democracy should be about. In the next hour, all eyes in America will be on Monday Night Football in Phoenix (ABC | ESPN, 7:30 CST) ... where the 1win/ 1- loss Arizona Cardinals will host the visiting 1- win/ 1 loss Dallas Cowboys. I am pulling of course for the Cowboys, and I will still watch and support even if any of the players from either team kneel for the national anthem ... enough from me.


Word Out ....
