SENATOR ELIZABETH WARREN: "The Unfinished Business of Financial Reform" ... (ELIZABETH WARREN PT.11) ... with Ranch Chimp Intro





Part 11 of the "Elizabeth Warren" series is a listen to a recent speech this last week that the Senator gave at the Levy Economics Institute of Bard College ... I just wanted to record this in this journal because it as usual is so straight and gets right to the root of our national and global financial issues, the cause, the history such as the last time during the Great Depression what happened, the need for President Teddy Roosevelt to use a sledgehammer method back in the day to tackle the challenges and the need to tackle the current mess were in, but not just from the people, but the need for strong leaders/ politicians such as Warren to ACT. We are lucky to have a Senator on the Senate Banking Committee with the knowledge and experience in law, banking and finance as Warren, who is not in constant fear of these parasites, especially these times of rampant corruption that has contaminated business and government/ politics here at home and globally ... because some of the members of this committee, I really question their performance and obligations. I have been asked time and again ... why I focus much on things like finance and law/ legislation? ... simple ... because it is vital to our societies stability on what makes and breaks us ... in the future it will be different, but this is importante right now to make it to a better point. For years like many other Americans I just voted blindly and really didnt pay much atencion to the political arena and candidates, most Americans are busy, plain and simple, and dont have time or patience to examine politics closely, and many could even care less about voting ... unfortunately many who dictate us and our Congress know this and capitalize off it. Again ... the people of this country have all the tools necessary to change this around overnight and clean this up, many others around the world have less tools than us and wish they had what we have to battle this.

Elizabeth is more known and ridiculed by some as an extreme leftist, some on Wall Street and conservative media views her as and openly calls her the Devil ... but despite all the pop- culture talk, that is so inaccurate as well as politipop nonsense ... Elizabeth is about as pro- business and capitalism as you can get, she went through a time (exactly like myself, is why I can relate to her) when she was a straight voting Republican, believing that maybe trickle down would work, because by it's design and purpose or theory it should work (of course with some rules) and has proven that it can reduce poverty and expand/ grow wealth time and again historically, she believed that the GOP/ Republican Party like myself as a former straight voting Republican, stood for what they say they stood for, and agreed on things like business being the ones to govern business, because who better to do and manage business and meet it's need's than business? The way the system is designed .... it should work well and even reduce poverty, increase wages, broaden wealth, create an arena of more competition and players, a healthy and robust free market and healthy global trade that gives incentives to play and win to a wider arena of contenders/ players ... but it has been destroying itself because of certain players who manipulate the game rules. Elizabeth is more like a capitalism hero to me if anything ... her outstanding resume and strength speaks for itself.

Politically though, many in the establishment part of these 2 dominating political parties that criticize Senator Warren are disgracefully un-American and some of the weakest as far as leadership qualities that I have ever seen in my 59 years, that have no sure plans or anything for that matter to present that takes immediate action, it's no wonder that millions of Americans have no faith in them ... your average worker and neighbour is more dependable and competent getting job's done than them. Even though the Democrat party is overall weak, the Republican party has no business trying to highside rubbish talk about how pro- American, pro- troops and pro- business the Republican party is, lets face it, ya'll especially on the Republican side in recent years have been more anti- American interests and basically a flunky herd of multi- national corporate/ banking and religious fundamoralism ass- sucking fruitloops, creating one obstruction after another in Congress simply because you cant get your way and are such pussies about everything, then to top it off, you have disrespected this President (Obama) like no other Congress had ever to a President, he tried to deal and be bipartisan and you still disrespect him, I wouldnt blame the President if he just got uncivilized on your asses, cause ya'll deserve it ... maybe an accidental elbow to jaw bump on the basketball court or a loose club on the golf course. The Republicans are going with President Obama right now on this fast track of the Trans Pacific Partnership because it serves the mega corporate interests, and even though because of our economics desperation to build more trade, jobs and business ... it has not been transparent, and what has leaked about it, gives corporations a heavier voice and hand and less voice and hand to our own government/ sovereignty/ Constitution ... Congressman Alan Grayson explains that here. Dont get me wrong, trade is good, BUT ... it's the fine print of what it consists of as far as the contractual legislation we allow tossed into it, and be obligated by law to let them call the shots, not the American people, smaller to medium size businesses/ companies and banks ... and looking at recent history, who would even remotely trust a fast track rushed through a few months after the 2014/ 2015 Republican Congress mudslide victory where after 6 years, many Republicans all of the sudden like/ favour the President and want it rushed? ... that dont make no goddamn sense unless its about special interests dipping their hand into it ... so you know what the score is, eh?

Today (like nearly a century ago) you have this culture of weakness in too big to fail business, a corporate welfare state monopoly, that cant stand on their own without cheating, manipulating, and getting bailed out for failure after failure, that whine, wimper and bellyache everytime they take a hit and expecting the small people/ taxpayers/ investors to take the fall for their actions and get them out of a bind they got themselves into. If and when these entities take a hit, they bring down so much else with them they are so financially intoxicated with ill planning and so accustomed to taking no responsibility for themselves ... and yet, our society is so twisted in pop culture thinking through their garbage media ... that we even mistakenly call these overbloated soft misfits ... elite. I actually admire and praise those who display strength and leadership qualities, are innovative and creative, those that stand out from the crowd and that are achievers, as one could see throughout this journal, which I dont see in these parasites, or any elite qualities or much quality at all, who some cant even lead themselves, let alone anyone else ... that severely lack even discipline or any integrity (after all, these are folks who create nothing but scams, and basically have everything given to them and are not physically or mentally handicapped) ... and I will tell you ... these of today are so disgracefully weak ... I wouldnt piss on half of them if they were on fire, or give them any bailout, and only hope they get a swift kick in the ass out the door. Elizabeth sums this up perfectly, but not just the usual talk we get out of some of these frightened candy- ass politicians trying to run for whatever office, but actual steps taken and plans on how to fix what is broken. I also linked below the video the transcript/ read for those who rather not listen to a 36 minute video/ speech and link to her reform proposals. This will also be included in the "DEBT CRISIS PT.1/ PAPER DOLL SHOW" of this journal ... and Thank You Senator!

DON'T BLAME RUSSIA ... BLAME YOURSELVES (RT/ RUSSIA TODAY- PT.2): The WHINY WINDBAGS of US Congress & The COLD BORE ... Media WAR, LORE & MORE ... The "American VALUES" Edition






This posting will be a Part 2 of the Russian sponsored media RT/ RT America and an update on this current battle over spending and pumping more money into the BBG (Broadcasting Board of Governors) to outspend these foreign sponsored news sources, the wimpering and whining of Capitalism Hill (aka Capitol Hill), the new cold war that has become a bore, some lore and more. In Part 1 linked below, I paint a broader picture of what media of any is about. Another link I added below PT.1 is from a posting a couple years back where RT again is calling America basically a "Great Lie", which is SO TRUE too, and I am one that actually loves my country, and it's the exact reason I write these related posting's, at least hear them out. But before I add my part to this, the link below with newsread and video will cover the current mess that inspires this Part 2 posting.

***** PD/ RCJ: AMERICA 2013 & The GREAT LIE ... with The Best of The Best that "MONEY CAN BUY" (The AWAKENING PT.29) **** I posted this RT piece for it's straight forward look at what America has became more increasingly over the last couple decades ... this is like a wake up for American's, not to CUT DOWN my/ our country, BUT to embrace it and cherish what we value and encouragement to preserve our liberties.




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



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 : )


No doubt, there is probably no one easier to push the buttons of than uninformed angry people, no matter what country they are in ... I mean ... the controlling powers depend on this. I myself am open and listen to ALL media regardless of who financially sponsors it or not, so my appetite in media is about as wide as my home literature or my music collection ... I mean ... I frankly wouldnt give a shit if it was sponsored by neo- Nazi's or whatever, if I find it worthy of atencion, I will view or read it. This is what I see America, democracy and the rest to be ... I am all for what those who control us brag that they want us to be about and tell the world that we are about ... competition, sharing globally/ culturally, free enterprise, open market and capitalism and much more. Bottom line, is that I DECIDE what I want to view/ read ... not some pre- paid corporate controlled starch suited windbag politician in Washington or some other corporate, political or religious mouthpiece. And I like RT America as well as many other's and appreciate their work ... Thank You RT.

John Kerry and Hillary Clinton may say that we need to pump more money into our media to compete or favour our particular slant or whatever, which is great ... but what many up there on Capitalism Hill dont realize is that they again are missing the point. Many folks go to alternative news sources because those sources are covering issues of concern that our corporate media's cant touch on as much for one reason or the other, issues that many may find of more concern and having more of a focus what we want to know more about. It is the viewer's decision and responsibility to read between the lines or even various slants and weigh for truth and integrity. I agree with Rep.Rohrabacher of California in the top linked news video to an extent ... that sure ... Putin/ Russia may have an agenda/ slant ... but to realize that we have our own flaws. The hilarious part of Rohrabacher's statement was when he looked around at his political constituents and said "I would hope that were honest enough with one another" ... I couldnt help to laugh ... I mean ... your in a chamber Sir ... that is saturated with pre- paid compulsive lying, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {: ) ... but nothing wrong with "hope".

The thing is ... that there are many in these 3 controlling powers that work together of corporations, government and institutionalized religions (what I label as the "3 entities" in this journal) that would like to have more restrictions, censorship and control over what we view and read, which frankly have too much control and restrictions as it is in my opinion with all the sugar coated politically correct media we have and so much control over our information technologies, yet they all want to have no restrictions on themselves, and its only a game between them of personal battles. Secretary Kerry will say that we need to boost our media edge and to "spread" democracy globally with it ... which is great ... but ... right now considering our own domestic problems and imposed policies Mr.Kerry ... many Americans would like to see more democracy spread here, since it has been becoming less and less in our own country ... and I hardly call some of what we see our nation do around the world as simply spreading democracy. I mean, since this is all about love, democracy, freedom and the rest ... I would suggest that ya'll practice a little more of what you preach ... at least if you expect anyone to halfway believe any of your bullshit.


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

'Second class Americans'? US fails to rescue its citizens in Yemen ... it's Russia who does the job ... Thanx to RT  **** Here is a sample of some RT News that some in our US Congress find as offensive and propaganda, but see how much coverage you will find of this on our own American MSM. Here you have Russia rescuing American citizens this last week from a Saudi bombing campaign in Yemen, while America declined to rescue their own for whatever reason. Although I myself am not saying that I feel we have a responsibility solely to rescue every American that is in some place like Yemen, I mean ... my question would be what are they doing in a place like Yemen with all the trouble there has been there?, some may be there for humanitarian reasons, business/ corporate reasons, visiting familia, etc. But the point of this being of the embarrassment and exposure in this news coverage of some of the actions of our own government that they would like to have swept under the rug.




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

We have some really good politicians who try their best to function and work in such a corrupt environment, and those I praise for what they do. But ... we have those who just refuse to think and look at the entire picture in a tight situation ... and some may take the most simple to solve thing, and over- complicate it, drive more misery and paranoia doing so, then whine later who's to blame. Reminds me of wanting to simply change the serpentine belt on your car engine ... when your monkey- wrench neighbour walks up asking to help, then decides they need to dismantle half the shit under the hood of the car to do it ... and put it all back together afterwards all ass backwards. The solution is easier than it looks ... bring back the solid integrity to news and try covering more than only what the money sponsors will allow, be more diverse, more informative, competitive, open and free in thought, planning, editing and creativity ... after all ... is this not what we claim to value? ... and everyone will benefit in the longrun, including those investors who spend an arm and a leg trying to shut out competition instead of improving themselves ... ya'll have no one to blame but yourselves.

BERNIE SANDERS 2015 Texas: Independent Vermont Senator Town Hall Speech to Texans in Austin ... Concerning "POLITICAL REVOLUTION" ... (From The FOXHOLE with Bernie PT.23) ... & "2016 Elections" POST NOTE







***** www.sanders.senate.gov



This posting for "From The FOXHOLE with Bernie" series will be to hear out Bernie in one of his recent speeches he done at a Town Hall in Austin a week or so ago, and explaining why our state and country need some type of political revolution ... regardless of what political background you are or favour most ... ya'll agree that something is currently politically wrong in this country and been for several years now (*** I added/ linked below on this page a "Press TV Report" and posting that accurately explains what is politically wrong/ inefficient). There is probably no one locally here in Texas that I talk about more in casual political conversation concerning our issues than Senator Bernie and Senator Elizabeth Warren over the last 5 years or so. I have briefed so many folks here in Texas on Bernie in this time, many who never even knew who he was, and many came back to me with positive feedback how they really liked this guy ... folks even from various political tastes ... but ALL had one thing in common ... being that they agree that America has issues that need to be dealt with, and the establishment of either dominating party is missing the boat, or just plain not doing a damn thing worthwhile.


***** AGENDA FOR AMERICA/ 12 STEPS FORWARD 





Bernie is considering running for President of United States, but he need's to see if he has that grassroots support needed to run against the powerful corporate dominated political cesspool of today. Bernie actually addresses so many issues that concern most Americans and Texans, but he actually work's hard behind the scenes and really bust's ass drafting legislation, proposing amendment's and preparing petition's, working hard for our vet's, children/ students, senior citizens, small businesses, trade relations, jobs, domestic infrastructure repair need's that are past due, and taking better care of our asset's/ finance, consumer protections and our rights ... the things that concern ALL of us. So many popular politician's constantly get in the media in speeches especially during campaigning and simply rehash a list of all our problem's and concern's like a broken record rehearsal, yet not taking any action on their talk ... well ... Americans ALREADY damn well know what the problem's are ... Hell ... we deal with them daily ... we dont need more damn talk out of them telling us what the Hell we already know and feel the pinch of ... we need work and action ... Bernie has a solid record/ resume of action. Enough from me though ... and give the man less than a half hour of your time below. Bernie dont start till after about 6 minutes into the video, local Texan Jim Hightower does the intro.

***** 2016 ELECTIONS POST NOTE (added saturday 18 April 2015)

I wanted to add a post note here on the 2016 elections since Hillary"Dead Broke"Clinton has made her official announcement to run for President in the Democrat Party, and she has been pretty much already bought and paid for. Bernie if he ran ... in this race would probably have to run as a Democrat because of the 2 party control. Hillary Clinton although she is very "qualified" and been being "groomed" for President, has a lack of trust still with many Democrats on certain issues ... and although Bernie and her are friends, they have some big differences. It may be wise though if Clinton chose a running mate like Bernie or Elizabeth Warren, despite their corporate controlled differences ... and all the big money of course is on Clinton, they been clicking this deal secretly even with the Obama endorsement of Clinton for awhile now that I covered a couple years ago it's been so long and "pre- planned". Also because since Clinton threw her hat into the arena this last week (and so far unchallenged in the Democrat Party), all she been doing is basically trying to be more like Bernie or Elizabeth and rehashing what they been saying for the last few years, trying to paint a new less corporate controlled image of herself basically ... Hell, even Republican candidates are copying Warren and Bernie, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {: ) and doing the same thing in their speeches ... that is why Sanders and Warren are trendsetters or leaders, because how they deal with voters issues, then you have those who follow their leads basically and have ton's of corporate/ lobby money thrown behind them.

I dont know if this could/ would happen or even if Bernie or Elizabeth would even accept such, I am just saying that the establishment Democrat party these dayz is not looking too much better than the establishment of the Republican party due to all this new corporate money influence and outright corruption, and both parties are even somewhat divided within their own. But if a major candidate with all the support and money like Clinton wants to really try to improve their image as well as the party, they will have to have someone with some credibility and a record of such by their side ... this goes for Republicans too, that is why Tea Party types been gaining ground also on the Republican side, and besides .... this way of politics is going to change in time anywayz, so may as well get it on the road now ... people/ voters are sick and tired of the way things been going regardless of what side they lean towards. The Vice Presidency may not look as much by some, but with the right VP, it can really influence the President for either good or bad as well, depending on the strength of the VP ... I mean ... take the Bush/ Cheney administration for example ... Cheney clearly ran alot and influenced Bush, not the other way around, so I would see Bernie or even Warren as more of a positive influence with plenty of experience both to someone like Clinton. But we need a better selection of representation and leadership in this country for sure from the President on down.

ANTHONY HILL: "Being Sensible" ... Justifying the MURDER by POLICE of a Model Citizen & Veteran ... The "MANIPULATIVE INVESTIGATIVE" Edition ... (VETERAN'S SPOTLIGHT PT.40) & (POLICE BRUTALITY PT.21)




Anthony Hill


This posting for this rain drenched Easter Sunday here in Dallas ... will be to look at the case of the murdered US Air Force veteran and upstanding citizen Anthony Hill of the Atlanta Metro area by DeKalb County police officer Robert Olsen, that I wanted to have in this journal. So it will serve both the "Police Brutality" and "Veterans Spotlight" series of this journal. This incident happened nearly a month ago and I been trying to read up on it to see what happened ... and I do not put any cases in this series unless they deserve to be in this series, being that it is outright murder or excessive force or related (an example of the vast differences in cases, look at the Trayvon Martin case here , and Zimmerman was NOT a cop, but a volunteer sort of community watchdog) ... in other word's ... I myself am like Anthony Hill, who recently posted in social media in response to the Michael Brown shooting, that we should not just go around labeling all cops as wrong or bad, the cases in this series prove themselves as what they are. I thought by now as clear as this is, that there would be at least some progress in this investigation, but it seem's like not much, and the longer these drag out allows for more chance of a manipulative investigative screw- up, although ... it has to be thorough at the same time. Many of us have veterans in our families and personally know vet's, retired, active or reserve ... several in my familia and most recently my step- grandson Jerome who just signed up for the Air Force as well. Some news link read below ... then I will throw in my part trying to be as Mr.Hill's grandfather would tell Anthony as a kid, to "Be Sensible" which I would hope the conclusion of this investigation would be for the sake of Anthony's parent's/ familia and girlfriend Bridget.

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



This is more than just a black/ white issue today ... this is an American issue, a citizen's issue ... an issue of questioning what democracy mean's. Mr.Hill is a perfect example of your upstanding citizen ... you cant try to make up or manufacture more nonsensical reasons to spend endless months with hidden jury panels, biased insider prosecution puppets and more twisted legislative laundering to try to make this any way sensible and/ or justifiable. Of course his neighbour's, familia and the African American community is outraged, and rightfully so, but this should and WILL outrage many more ... in time, because no one is immuned to this, and as I posted in other pieces such as this piece concerning rights ... it will have an impact on everyone in time regardless of race, gender or much else. As you can see in the above HuffPost link, the Supreme Court is even having to deal with this and how the mentally ill should be dealt with ... and the growing outrage has been enormous.

Here you have a man (Hill) ... who is a veteran, worked odd contract work while also working towards his music career as a studio intern, attended college, sang in a church choir, was even a intern earlier at a local law enforcement agency in South Carolina, been with his girlfriend Bridget for 3 years in a good relationship, and 3 years obviously speaks for itself, meaning he must be doing something right, a girlfriend very fond of him, who sayz he likes to cook for her in his spare time, neighbours even liked him, and all were surprised at his actions running around naked that day he was killed, yet in all his mental frustration he tried to remain cool and reassure folks he was okay. His crime is basically being naked I reckon ... and in my opinion, probably one of the most dumb thing's to be ever criminalized ... after all ... are we not born into this world naked?

The trouble with these investigations more than ever now, is the lack of transparency to the citizen's/ taxpayers, with these hidden anonymous type grand jury reviews and interdepartmental investigations, where the victim is focused on more than the one who done the killing, almost a reverse role of the prosecutions job at that. DeKalb County is saying that they want to be MORE transparent and have an outside investigation conducted by the GBI (Georgia Bureau of Investigation), which sounds real nice, but the question is what will they investigate? ... to see if Mr.Hill was someway in the wrong enough to get murdered? ... or to try to get this officer Olsen off with a slap on the wrist? ... I mean, is there not any other possibilities to be investigated? You need more than just local GBI, county or city looking at these cases ... with some independent investigations from those who have a history of credibility. And this would really be difficult to twist for any who try to criminalize Mr.Hill ... he has NO criminal history or is even a doper, or gang relations which is another excuse they use, etc.

Mr.Hill or even his mom Carolyn dont play race bias, which was clear in Anthony's FaceBook concerning police and excessive force, and his mom stated that this isnt a race issue, she simply want's answers and if possible, some justice ... just what any mom/ parent would want. They say as usual that witness reports were conflicting, which you have to expect ... some say he was crawling when shot, some say his arms were raised up, stretched out or down to his sides, officer Olsen sayz he look deranged and murderous and was charging toward's him. I'm gonna go with what Anthony's grandpa said and try to make common sense here ... if I were a judge or jury member or whatever in this case ... you have a naked ill man ... period ... I dont care if his hand's were up down to the side or whatever, or if he was scratching his balls with his right hand and scratching his ass with his left ... he clearly had NO weapons. I dont see how the officer felt so in danger with all the equipment he is carrying and training he had (including training in dealing with mentally ill) and 7 years experience on how to apprehend or deal with a suspect, especially on this kind of call ... it's obvious that he (Anthony) needed and wanted to talk with someone, even hugging a neighbour earlier just minutes before his death, telling the neighbour that everything will be fine.

Medical records show that Anthony started to have problems in Afghanistan after seeing innocent children getting killed, he was discharged from duty diagnosed as bipolar, yet no prior history of such, and put on pharma drugs, which I believe personally speaking and as you can see throughout this journal like in the "Pharmaceutical Cash Cow's" series, that in some cases, despite how "good" these drugs are supposed to be, many of them we have no reliable history of to see the side effects, and especially in the long term ... I mean, after all ... these drugs are specifically designed to manipulate the way the mind naturally worx ... and it's a multi- billion dollar industry. So I will be curious to see whenever this investigation get's concluded on how they can justify the murder of Anthony ... but I am sure they will try their damnedest ... I know there is no criminal reason on Anthony's part just looking at what is known. Meanwhile poor Anthony's girlfriend is weeping and trying to uplift her spirit saying she knows that Anthony is in paradise, his mom weeping just hoping to get some answers ... and officer Olsen as usual is probably fishing, golfing or whatever while getting his paycheck and hoping that they will clear him and get excused.

EMILIE AUTUMN: "Manic Depression", "EA Live- Violin Solo", "Unlaced" & "It's Time For Tea" ... (BEAUTIFUL GIRLZ PT.17)







***** WELCOME TO THE ASYLUM:: THE OFFICIAL SITE OF EMILIE AUTUMN




This entry into the music/ arts honour roll society of this journal will be to honour and sample some of the work of Emilie Autumn out of the Malibu/ LA area, who is a favourite as far as her violin work too. But there is a Hell of alot more to Emilie besides violin ... she is an actor and worked in film, a poet, author, producer, composer and a really top notch vocalist with an operatic type range and style, but can cross into just about anything as far as genre ... put it this way ... if she would have been commercialized or corporatized she would be in the rank's of say Lady Gaga or someone like Katy Perry, she is more than just the frosting on the cake ... she is more like the sprinkle treats and decoration's on the frosting!

Emilie has had some classical background as far as training, but wasnt much on the formal education thing, being she gave up on school at around age 10, and was self taught much of the way, even while at a university and study with several teacher's, she also could not get along with maybe what they tried to pigeonhole her into as far as being a classical musician ... she is the kind of person that more or less know's what she want's to do and demand's it from what I gather. She even walked away from a producer in the past, that wanted to rearrange everything of her's, deciding just "fuck it", and starting her own independent label. She has quite a following too after nearly 2 decades in the business and also worked making music with Courtney Love and OTEP, she has 3 studio and 2 instrumental album's as well.

As far a genre ... she consider's herself as Victoriandustrial, she is hand's on all the way, musically influenced by opera, classical, jazz and had a thing for theatrics, plays, novels, history, and the Victorian era. Because of personal issues that landed her in an asylum for mental health, has also played a part in the storyline behind much of the music too, and she point's out some of this in her self published book "The Asylum For Wayward Victorian Girls" ... which also led her to be an activist as well for mental health care reform because of her experiences. Even though Emilie has quite a reputation on her show as far as drama or theatrics and driving the audience, I am blown away by her musical abilities and voice, and love her style. A few other's as far as this strings instrument category in this journal would be "Black Violin", "Jennifer Lynn", "Johnny Arco", "Charlie Daniels" and "Ruby Jane". But sticking to her roots and being her own boss has made it so her art hasnt got too contaminated and rearranged or destroyed, and it keep's it's authentic personal touch. I also wanted to include Emilie in the "Beautiful Girlz" series because of her beautiful fashion type icon beauty and enormous talents. Enough from me though, and looking forward to her future worx and wishing her the best of the best. Below some choices of mine of hers ... Enjoy!!

AARON SCHOCK: Representing the PEOPLE or YOURSELF ... and The Costing of the FROSTING ... The "Designer Resigner" Edition ... (POLITICAL CORRUPTION & ETHIC'S PT.6) & (DEAD BROKE HILL PT.3)




Rep. Aaron Schock (IL)



This posting will serve the "Political Corruption & Ethics" & "Dead Broke Hill" series of this journal, to take a look at some of the work of those we pay decent salaries and lifelong benefit's to, to represent us ... and in this case, the costing of the frosting we have on the cake, for the soon to resign designer Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock. Washington is alwayz telling us how broke they and we are, how we need to pay and sacrifice more and more, even turn over our social security and life savings to them and Wall St,, make cuts to public services, education, veterans, elderly, etc ... or were all doomed. And when these so called strong leaders get their panties in a bind with petty fights on the job, they act like little spoiled brat's and walk out off the job with pay, and tell us they will abandon us, the job or whatever ... I would say ... just go, get the Hell out and dont let me see your ass again ... I dont care, walk out, close down, whatever ... there are plenty of folks that can and will do the job. Some video and news link below, then I will add my part following.

This shouldnt shock anyone about this guy Schock, but bring more light and awareness about how some of the culture in politics is ... and to never get into a mindset like some thinking that this is acceptable and should be the norm. This man is more concerned with representing himself than the people, or even his constituent's as he claim's for that matter, this man represent's nothing but himself, and dont belong in a position to lead or represent a damn thing. This is/ was a man considered by many in his party (Republican) as an upcoming superstar type for the party as well. Now after these investigations and such ... they're all acting as if he doesnt exist, or they want him to, yet no one talked to this young man before hand in their party and told him how his lifestyle looks in a public office? Which show's even more how out of touch Washington is with America.

I am not so much disturbed with his office decor, as a matter of fact, I thought it was impressive, but NOT as a Congressional member's office, I dont see it as a reflection of the job/ workplace at all, some say it is like a scene set of some popular UK tele series called "Downton Abbey", or the office decor of former First Lady Nancy Reagan ... to me it look's like what I would expect in the outer offices and waiting area of a more upscale satanic ritual chamber, but not a representatives office of the people. Schock's lavish and pop- culture vulture saturated lifestyle dont even reflect his needed qualities to represent American's. This is a man representing Peoria (IL) for example ... world headquarters of Caterpillar, Inc. ... the hard working blue collar backbone of America ... if you been to Peoria, you know what kind of town it is.

Schock had an impressive resume and childhood as a student and working hard as young as his early teens, hustling, investing and even setting up his own private retirement at 14 years old and invested in the stock markets, top's in school, ahead in his grades, a real leader, worked in rural farming as a kid, even being later the youngest school board member at 19 years old, and very cost conservative on spending. So what the Hell happened? ... I dont consider his spending spree's and lifestyle as even reflecting what he valued, and especially if he paid $74,000 for a new Chevy Tahoe, I dont see that as conservative or even smart dealing/ haggling, or the $5,000 podium of his. It is obvious though that he used his skills to nickel and dime tax- payers out of extra gas mileage reimbursement and other expenses. So it's okay by his so called values I guess (as his dad talks about his son's great all American values) to just recklessly spend the peoples money on his personal needs instead of what they intend the money for, eh?

This guy seem's to fly around with plenty of other's in their private aircraft's including the President (Obama) who also spoke highly of him, lives better than most in his salary range, related occupation and community where he sayz he likes to at least spend a day of two once a week. Considering all the vacation time off of Congress and miscellaneous walk- outs over bitch fights and the rest, I have to wonder how he gets any damn thing done on the job, or exactly what does he do addressing some of the serious issues. He said that he is a representative of the economy and focuses mostly on that, especially for the young people, and not a social issues kind of guy, which is great, the economy is very importante for those ... however, what's up with this money spending? ... why is he so gung- ho on bucking against fair/ equal rights for LGBT (gay/ lesbian) citizen's? or rights for those who are victims of hate crimes, against a woman's right to choose, etc?

Some say it's great that he just resigned, I am sure his party partly inspired that, if he is so up and up and hasnt nothing to hide or no fear and a real leader ... he wont walk, but fight till the finish, that there show's me his cowardly colours. He know's also damn well that his ethics/ morals are in question, he know's damn well what he is guilty of. Letting these people just walk away to please our political tastes is NOT good enough, thank goodness that the FBI and others are digging deep into this while politicians turn their eyes away and get on the current politipop gab about their candidacy shows to distract us. These people need to be hounded, hunted and held accountable for taking an oath to represent people ... that is our problemo ... you DONT let shit like this slide ... you set an example, and make solid what we expect out of those like him. If any of us can go to jail for such, so can he.

DeMARCO MURRAY ... Sayz "Farewell" to the COWBOYS ... & "I'm Ready To Work" to the EAGLES ... Leaving Brother's in Dallas and Running HIS GOAL ... to the City of Brotherly Love




(left to right) fiancee Heidi Mueller, their daughter Savanna June & DeMarco Murray





(left to right) Dez Bryant, Tony Romo, Jason Witten & DeMarco Murray ... after 2014 NFC East Championship win




This posting will be to highlight and Thank Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray for his service to the Dallas Cowboys from 2011 to 2014. But the other reason for posting this as well is because this is big local sports news here in Dallas and Philadelphia, Eagles and Cowboys have been one of the NFL's hottest rivalries for decades and the NFC East division. Also because some fan's in Dallas got so bent out of shape over this, that some started burning Murray jerseys and criticizing Murray for leaving ... and in Philadelphia, fan's like this gal are thrilled and excited. But first some newsread and video below, then I want to add some after.



DeMarco Murray ready to be an Eagle? ... Thanx to CBS SPORTS






***** ESPN/ NFL: Eagles introduce DeMarco Murray




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


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


I myself was disappointed to see DeMarco leave as much as any other die- hard Cowboyz fan and teammates were ... I mean ... there are tough choices in this business too, and that's how it goes. DeMarco has proven to be one of the upcoming NFL great's as far as a running back, even though he has had a strong history in high school and college in Oklahoma, he has contributed so much in particular this last year as far as the Cowboyz winning the NFC East Championship and building that team spirit, and being the top rusher in the NFL. I also give alot of credit to the Dallas offensive line who helped him achieve his potential ... Murray worked extra hard this last season, since he was being played alot, some feared of injuries or wearing him down. But considering too, Murray coming into the Cowboyz back in 2011 as a 3rd string backup, he has came a long wayz in a short time.

DeMarco sayz that he see's potential in Philadelphia winning a SuperBowl and wanted to be a part of that ... and even though I am No#1 a Cowboyz fan ... I agree with him ... Philly is a Hell of a team, and only came in 2nd to Dallas last year in our division, they just had some real problem's pop up smack dab in their season that hurt them. DeMarco sayz it wasnt really about money, I have to take that as at least partial truth, because there were other team's even offering him more than Philly since he was up for grab's ... but the $42 million for 5 year's and $21 million guarantee made it also a sweet deal. But it's also obvious that QB Sam Bradford had alot to do with that decision also ... I mean, DeMarco and Sam were tight as roommates and teammates in college. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones couldnt match it? ... NO ... not at all ... in fact, in my opinion, if it wasnt for this salary cap deal, I feel DeMarco would still be in Dallas ... Jerry has no problemo spending, as a matter of fact, Jerry partly inspired the salary cap's in the NFL because of his spending, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {: ) ... (I wish spending cap's would happen in Washington DC as well, to stop these corporations and investment banker's from buying all our politician's campaign's {: ) Jerry and the Cowboyz had a tough decision to make as well ... we are limited on what we can spend, and you have to decide who get's cut and who stay's, and Dallas has a great crew across the board, this is the best Cowboyz team I seen since the dayz of Aikman, Smith and Irvin back in the 1990's!

Jerry and the Cowboys needed to make as tough as a decison as DeMarco, and in my opinion, DeMarco has to look out for his best interest and go with what's in his heart, and right now ... it's not running to the goal line, but to run to and with his OWN goal's ... and I wish him the best in his pursuit. Also understand as the gentleman in the top video brought up ... DeMarco will have to adjust to this new system and the Philly offense been playing the fastest game plan in the league (one of the first thing's that stood out to me about Philly watching them closely last season), that new offensive line will have to adjust to him as well, and that will be a challenge to match Dallas' line on that end for them ... Dallas is tight and easily gave DeMarco what he needed and knew DeMarco well. DeMarco is at a good age too of 27, and need's to keep good protection, because that is also what many look at, is how he can hold up taking those hard hit's and punishment ... so he will have his challenges as well. DeMarco sayz he's ready to get to work ... that's all that count's ... Thank You and have a good one guy ... we will see you here in Dallas in a Eagles uniform this coming sesaon!

THE WHO: "I Can See For Miles", "See Me, Feel Me/ Listening To You", "My Generation", "Pinball Wizard" & "Won't Get Fooled Again"




***** THEWHO.COM



This posting for the music/ arts honour roll society of this journal will be a salute to honour The Who, out of London, who are also celebrating 50 years together as a crew and currently on tour. This crew of course has alot of music and are definitely the arena/ stadium sort of crew, they are top notch in album as well as singles classic rock as far as genre, a major influence to so many, Pete Townshend, a self taught multi- instrumentalist, is a Hell of a songwriter too, who get's much credit ... but as far as history I will let the links handle that. Overall the band just was really tight as far as live performance and sound, even though I havent seen them in at least 35 years or so. Pete has a unique guitar style and Roger a powerful vocalist, and everyone in the band can sing well with nice harmonies. What really caught my atencion seeing them live as well, was the bass guitar work of John Entwhistle (I was right up stage front) and the style of how he would roll on the bass, the smoothness of his playing, he would look so laid back not hardly moving while his fingers would lay out this intensive thunderous sound. Keith Moon is such a unique drummer and rated as the best of the best in that category with his style and intensity, but also I can imagine rang up a Hell of a bill in damages on his kit's and hotel room's which he had a thing for too.

I been wanting to have a posting on this crew in here for sometime, so I been sifting through alot of stuff on YouTube trying to find some of their early stuff to focus on their beginning's for this posting, looking through some of my favourites as a kid and song's that are well known, so I finally after reviewing so many, chose these below to highlight for this posting. And Thanx to this crew for all the great music and all those they influenced ... Enjoy!

JESSICA LIESMANN: "Don't Mess with MAD MOTORIST MAMA" ... The DASH, CRASH & BASH Edition ... "My Girl ... A Tribute to those LADIES a Lil on the HOT & SPICY side PT.8"




Jessica Liesmann & son Jaylen



Part 8 of the "My Girl ... Ladies a Lil on the Hot & Spicy Side" series will be another local Dallas posting to highlight some defensive action taken by Ms.Jessica Liesmann yesterday here in town. Basically ... this dude/ suspect allegedly jacked some guyz ride/ car outside a convenient store at gunpoint after he held up the store down around the Fair Park district in South Central Dallas, then dashed off hitting a few freewayz with it (S.Central Expwy, R.L.Thornton & LBJ Freewayz) ... it was a Dodge Challenger he hijacked, and believe me, those have some good pickup and speed (I love the Challenger), he took DPD on a high speed chase that ended going all the way to the Lake Highlands district of NE Dallas ... then when he got off the freewayz and took to the street's ... boom! he crashes into cars at a light in an intersection, one van he hit's into, the driver/ Jessica gets out to basically bash the dude for hitting her van, her teen son is laying in the median injured in pain, and she confront's this suspect really fired up (this suspect is also armed at that, although I'm sure she didnt know). Basically Jessica was pissed, and who can blame her? plus, just last year, she lost her 4 year old son Jaylen (death) to a medical condition, she didnt like seeing her other son hurt ... she was smokin hot and ready to rumble ... and the way it looks ... if DPD wouldnt have arrived at the scene so quick, she looked like she was about to give this suspect some ass whippin, that he well deserved too. Anywayz ... great work Jessica to you and your boyfriend Charles, good to hear your son TJ will be okay too! Some video/ newread below.



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


***** NOTE: Dallas Police advises citizen's to not take this approach when/ if your car get's hit like this, and to "let police handle it" ... a couple people here in Dallas also told me they thought Jessica was wrong for getting out of her car and attacking the guy/ suspect, and that it is assault ... another guy told me she could have got shot (suspect had his piece/ gun on the seat) ... which is all true ... being she could have got shot and it is illegal to assault someone that hit's your vehicle. I see this a lil different ... this suspect in my view was using his car as like a battering ram, and NOT a mistake of just failing brakes, especially at the speed he was flying, it was 20mph school zone and max speed limit anywayz is no more than 35mph when school zone hours are not active (not 60- 70mph) ... it appear's clearly that his intention's were to try to slide at a high speed between the lanes of car's in the hope of knocking them out of the way to clear a path, with no regard whatsoever for anyone ... and as far as I'm concerned deserved an ass whippin.

WAR ON CIVIL RIGHTS 2015 with Charlie E. Cobb, Jr: "This Nonviolent Stuff'll Get You Killed/ How Guns Made the Civil Rights Movement Possible" ... The "RACISM to CLASSISM" Edition ... (BLACK HISTORY MONTH/ HARMON LOFT PT.9) & (SELF DEFENSE PT.28)




Charlie Cobb (Author/ Activist)



(left to right) ... Stokely Carmichael, Charlie Cobb, George Greene (1963) of the SNCC



This posting called "War On Civil Rights 2015" will serve 2 series in this journal ... "Black History Month" (which is a series personally dedicated to Harmon Loft as well ... a mentor of mine as a kid that I point out in Part 1) and the "Self Defense" series both. I chose a Charlie Cobb interview, who worked in the early 1960's civil rights movement and was very active in it in Mississippi starting in the SNCC as a civil rights activist, and today an author/ journalist who will share a lil history and about what inspired his book "This Nonviolent Stuff'll Get You Killed" and why guns helped make the civil rights movement possible down there especially. But this posting is also kind of personal for all those locally that have been great in sharing their concern about what we are seeing happen to America, and looking at the various solution's that are needed. The fact is, in 2015 America ... our rights are being attacked more than ever (which is why I call these times a "War on Civil Rights"), including even the voting rights ... which was a big issue back then in the civil rights movement, are being attacked AGAIN and suppressed in various states. And this attack in one way or another is on every tax paying American that has to work for a living, small businesses and across the board ... so it has went from openly racism, and became sugar coated in political correctness to where today it's classism, but still strongly prejudiced on people of colour without calling it race ... if that makes any sense. But first the interview with Charlie from former Black Panther member and host Eddie Conway, then an added video of a former American militia founder James Johnson speaking to the Senate on gun rights back 20 years ago, then of course some input from me after.



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


***** NOTE: I have been asked more than once, and by new recent Arab immigrant's for instance ... what is the big deal with black history? ... or why it is so special?, etc ... and many of these folk's that I explained this to had no idea what all black American's have done as far as molding the modern Democracy America is today, the impact on American rock, jazz and R&B music and arts, to many invention's, to the cowboys and ranch hand's that built the new west, to medicine, to all that served this nation in our military, etc. And what is remarkable in most of this, is that these folk's were brought here as slaves, stripped of their culture, religion's, languages and families, and deliberately for year's denied to even get ANY education or to have any rights whatsoever as even being human, even some punished just for trying to learn to read or write for that matter ... I cant think of ANY immigrant culture to this nation in our history that has had to go through this and overcome the obstacle's put in place, even by our own founding government and leader's ... these folk's had to really fight and go through Hell to just be recognized as human and brought into any kind of mainstream of society, yet contributed so much to the construction of it. And time and again, so many here in America tried to sweep their history under the rug and act as if it never happened. The struggle and fight of African American's are also what done so much as far as expanding rights for ALL in this nation as well. So that's why it's importante and special historically.

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



***** BILL OF RIGHTS OF THE UNITES STATES OF AMERICA



***** CORNELL UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL: CIVIL RIGHTS



The reason you see a growing concern over civil rights today, is because it needs to be revisited right away, and this is why you see also the growing number of group's getting involved and so much social media on such. The bottom line is ... a half century ago so much action was taking place, and progress has been made, but 50 years later, we are back at square one, and this need's American support across the board, it doesnt matter what race, gender you are now ... you will get hit, it has to be especially frustrating to African American's because it looks like years of hard work down the drain almost, and most of this is simply a result of the same oligarchic disease that contaminates our government/ politic's ... and as I wrote earlier in this journal ... that this time it will go global, which is what we are starting to see now more than ever ... they're basically fucking up society all over the globe ... through our politics and financial systems.

It is at the point now where damn near every one of the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution (Bill of Rights) is being violated in some way, and those of lower incomes and especially those of colour are getting hit the hardest. The 4th Amendment is guaranteed almost to get violated daily when it comes to search and seizure, residential door's being bashed in, even many times with paperwork screw- ups and mistaken identities, actually kicking in the wrong door's. The 1st Amendment is basically in the shitter these dayz, not just on the right to peaceful assembly (which is regulated to a point of almost no assembly), and free speech is all sugar- coated to politically correct speech and everything you do and say is picked apart, especially if you do it in social media, and to petition the government concerning grievances takes forever with run around after run around. The 8th Amendment as far as excessive bails, fines, cruel and unusual punishment is collapsed as well. The 6th Amendment I could talk about till I'm blue in the face (see this series "Incarcerated American", because that can be a long complicated mess), and you should know at least a little about law when going into the courts system (do your homework and have as much to say in it as your attorney, or fire them), you may be working poor and get a speedy trial, without the trial part, with a public defense that basically worx for the prosecution in your county/ state/ city court, etc ... get hustled into a cop- out plea and go down, to profit privatized prisons on a petty offense (courts work different between city, county, district, etc). BUT ... these are still rights ... and if you DONT utilize them, you will never see them in force ... so it is importante to fight back.

The 2nd Amendment is no exception, although it is being constantly pigeon- holed as being as the cause for so much violence and evil, at least American's are more well armed than ever in the history of this nation. When some of the latest protest's in Ferguson (MO) went down, the police wouldnt even send any police to protect small businesses from looter's notice ... it was local militia's like the "Oath Keepers (a look at American pre- programmed and masochistic pop- culture political bigotry view of what well regulated militia's are)" that volunteered to protect, board up and stand guard over small businesses and properties in that community (and the government tried to STOP Oath Keepers from protecting Ferguson properties, citizens and businesses) ... the police were quick to surround and protect government building's and the police headquarter's, but that's about it ... which shows that they dont care about your community or your businesses ... those Oath Keepers probably saved millions in damages, just simply showing their presence, that's how simple it was. In Dallas today you have militia groups like the "Huey P. Newton Gun Club" taking care of their own communities in areas of town like South Central Dallas or West Dallas, and because they want to keep a visible presence as well to let police know that they are guarding also the members of their communities who are too often abused or killed and have their rights violated.

A half century ago in the civil rights movement there was tension between Dr.M.L.King and Malcolm X over methods to get results ... Malcolm X accusing King of being too passive, and Dr.King saying that Malcolm is too violent and in the south it can only cause alot more bloodshed of black people, King had to work with a more peaceful approach than what Malcolm may do and say in a place like Harlem/ NYC ... sadly they both were assassinated, both having to pay a price. Peaceful assembly, voting, and alot of working for legislative changes is importante, and because we have rights we can utilize ... but also remember that America is a nation that was bred on violence, bloodshed and guns ... and today what you see is all the aggression and violence being handed out is from corporate/ political influence, not from the people when it comes to these rights issues. Today in 2015 ... a well regulated militia is as importante in this nation as it ever was in history, not the talk about ... "lets ban firearms" from the people, and everything will be fine ... it WILL NOT be fine. One of the reasons why Mr.Cobb is still alive to talk and write about the condition back in the civil rights movement of the 1960's ... is because he was defended by rural black people who were armed ... otherwise, he may be dead. He didnt understand this at first coming from the city and going into that environment at such a young age, but learned in time.

Also let me add that I see Malcolm X and Dr.King as different as day and night, and only are both recognized for the same thing by some ... simply because they were in the same era and both argued for African American rights. What I mean is, Malcolm I see as a segregationist, while I see Dr.King as a integrationist, so todayz society in America is more like Dr.King's vision, not like Malcolm's (but I admire both for their leadership qualities). Malcolm as well as King both were pro- gun though, and both to protect their people and properties is why, King was denied firearms license though. Malcolm was also heavy into the Islamic faith for a while, King was Christian. One guy told me back awhile ago that he viewed Malcolm X as no different than the Ku Klux Klan is why I bring this up ... there is a big difference though between them, being that the KKK back then actually terrorized and murdered in a horrific manner innocent people and was even a very strong political influence in Washington with members working on Capitalism Hill (aka Capitol Hill). Malcolm was just one that believed that if we couldnt get along together, that we should be separate and was a black nationalist of sort, similar to how I view things like extreme religious views such as more stricter forms of Sharia Law which I dont believe is healthy in our democratic society, so "if" necessary, like Malcolm, I believe if our wayz cant coexist in a healthy beneficial way, we should seperate until we evolve socially to that time and place is all.

It takes alot as history shows to maintain rights, because they are alwayz under attack at one time or another, and nothing is too easy. We should be very grateful that we do have rights to assemble and bear arms as we have ... I feel sorry for people in some of these countries to see what they have to go through when they want to be heard, going up against tanks and amoured military/ police with only sticks and bottles as defense and NO armour themselves, and there are forces out there that dictate our political representation who would love to see the entire world like that, including us ... just more defenseless. Some say that peace is the only answer to assembly and protesting grievances ... and passively waiting ... I disagree, peaceful solutions are great if possible, but not one way is the solution, if they were peaceful with the people I could understand, but that IS NOT our society, they are violent on us, and manipulate our rights and laws ... period ... we even pay their salaries to protect us, what a rip off that can be, eh? Some say that our guns is no defense against such strong forces ... it is defense though bottom line, look at these ragtag militia's who are less armed with sophisticated weaponry in places like Afghanistan, not even the USA or Russian (military/ occupation) over a couple decades has been able to make them submit, and we spend billions to fight them, so dont tell us that no defense is a reliable defense ... that is just foolish thinking.

I alwayz hear political mouthpieces saying we need to be cut of this and that entitlement, public services, schools/ education, infrastructure repair, etc, while they spend recklessly on everything they choose or are directed to by billionaire lobbyist's (and the nerve of these folks telling us what to do with our own money, and telling us we have to pay for the losses of some like Wall Street is insane), that we need to take personal responsibility, pull ourselves up by our bootstraps or other nonsense ... this coming from people who are basically weak and frail as far as leadership qualities, overpaid, and insist and legislate that we need to give welfare to them and their Wall Street friend's. Well ... American's are taking responsibility by defending themselves and country by right, duty, and a sense of patriotism, and are the ones also doing all the work and paying all ya'll's bill's ... so shut the Hell up ... and be grateful you even get a goddamn paycheck from us instead of a foot in your ass, and shown the door election day.
