DALLAS Voted Best International Skyline 2014 ... The "BRANCH of the RANCH & COLOUR'S of DALLAS" Edition (TASTE OF TEXAS PT. 26)

http://photographyblog.dallasnews.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/66/files/2014nyefireworks/fireworks001.jpg



Part 26 of the "Taste Of Texas" series will be a look at downtown Dallas that was voted as the best international skyline. I was suprised actually, of course I see downtown Dallas daily and not give it much thought, and alot of these other downtown's are larger than Dallas', many large cities put most of their highrise development in the central part of the city, Dallas scatter's it over a 30 mile area or so, so downtown is not as compact or congested with such. And Dallas is not located on a coast/ ocean like most, or has the natural beauty of mountain's ... understand that this was nothing but an empty dull prarie and forest land over 100 year's as ago, that I call the "Ranch", and this is the downtown branch of the ranch ... all the large area lakes, and everything else is "man- made'. But still, the downtown here which seem's to change like the season's is a pretty scene ... I think alot of it has to do with the colour lighting or such. Congratulation's to Dallas and some newsread/ video below, along with some images I grabbed of the downtown here.

***** CNN/ JUSTICE: (added wednesday 17 september 2014) Feds: NY storeowner plotted to send jihadists to Syria, kill U.S. troops himself .... I added this because so much news now is how these folk's recruit young westerner's into this jihadist thing. To be honest here (since we have a shortage of honesty), the reason it is easier to recruit these young folk's, is because of some of the political shenanigan's over the last several year's in the west, including interfering in other's business, extensive bombing campaign's, putting in corporate selected puppet dictator's, etc. If we didnt have such gung- ho political representation these dayz in western countries (which includes the EU countries), who allow this oligharcic type disease of Wall St, corporate communism, and related to run our countries into the ground (which I point out throughout this journal), screwing over our working class and middle classes, and as I wrote in the start of this journal, they are looking to grow and make China the new large middle class and large countries like India, while reducing our population's of such, and making our country a stronger contrast of poor and rich, while we bail them out and finance them, these power/ wealth entities will abandon our country, driving our wages into the dirt, pushing austerity, milking our retirement's, police killing our kid's in the street's for questioning and disobedience, recklessly gambling our hard earned taxes, drive student's into damn near bankruptcy to get education's, letting bank's rob people of their homes, and such a long list ... you probably wouldnt have HALF the bloody damn problem's that ya'll are facing now, or the number of group's (domestic or foreign), riot's or other retaliation to the condition's ya'll are trying to create and impose on people. With all our leader's brilliance, college degree's at the finest school's and decades of experience, liberation, and worldly knowledge, love, etc ... how can you NOT see what your action's help feed? ... you folk's amaze me.

President Obama summed it up perfectly back around 2008 or so when he said something like ... "when people feel bitter, they grab gun's and god/ religion ..." (similar wording) ... he was strongly criticized for that statement back then, because it was the "truth", and truth is not politically correct. That situation was just some rural American folk's, but the same applies to folk's all over the world. Now, the President is being "politically played and pressured" as well by our overall political gaming crew in Washington to "act" on this threat ... and it is his job to act, so you cant blame him (blame our overall politic's), every single bombing campaign that he approved has been pressured by his political constituent's and military advisor's, many of course funded by special interest's who basically control a large portion of our government. However the President act's, he will be criticized by both the left and right, there is no way out, and this President has been the most politically attacked President I have seen in my life and most bipartisan, has had more obstacles shoved into his path than any I ever seen, and obstruction from being able to act ... simply because of politic's and business ... nothing else. Again ... this so called terror threat of current is just one of many, many group's in time that will feel to retaliate, justifying it with religion or something else, and will flow in waves across the globe. Sure you can defeat some of this by endless bombing of target's, some ground combat, here and there, which can be almost endless ... but it still wont extinguish the "spirit" which help's inspire ... until something changes on the way we do thing's

Boots on the ground ... Thanx to DESTINYE CRAWFORD ... a lil opening song /video from some gal's ... I just thought that the one in the middle was cute with her lil boots skit {: )



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


This posting will serve as part 2 of "Off the WALL with Ron Paul", and is inspired by all the newest so called crisis that's been saturated in the news over "ISIS", Iraq, Syria, all the hysteria, telling us once again, that it's that time of the year to put back on our "scared mask's", warning's of Al Qaeda opening up a new branch location (as if it was a new neighbourhood bank {: ), we have Vice President Biden saying were gonna follow these terror folk's to the gates of Hell (wherever in Hell that is, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {: ) ... maybe he brought his shotgun to the podium, the one that he uses for home defense instead of an AK- 47 or AR- 15 or 9mm, and tell's us we should too {: ) ... news that their chopping off American's head's ... President Obama vow's vengeance and said he dont have a plan, so Republican's with their cheap attack's made a show out of it yelling ... "He DONT have a plan!!" ... as if they do ... heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {: ) ... (I am also a supporter of President Obama ... and DO NOT blame this situation on him, and would hate to have his job on so many issues he has to deal with). Now we hear, that we all need to be scared/ frightened, and of course worry about these crummy billion dollar corporate mid- term election's coming up, and which of our 2 heroic political parties can save us all from doom and gloom? ... left vs. the right, and good ole fashioned good vs. evil {: ) As a matter of fact ... sadly it took the death of comedian Joan Rivers to get a break from all this media hysteria.

I was discussing this with a group of folk's the other day as well as viewing everything I could online, tele, and radio about it, and I listened to these folk's out first before even saying a thing, so I could hear out what they thought and felt, and there were alot of mixed opinion's, some fear, frustration, anger, etc. So I tried to break it down since it's really made into a confusing mess, and get some logic in all of this to balance it out and get past some of the lies and lunacy these thing's create ... and just try to simplify thing's a bit more. Dr. Ron Paul I chose to address this for this issue, who makes it clear, sensible and somewhat simplified, so this posting is also for all those folk's I discussed this with locally the other day, and said that I would do a posting on this. And honestly, it would be remarkable, and I would be amazed, if this would go down like the politician's and media is painting it as right now, telling us that they can battle and clean up this mess simply using unmanned drone strikes or whatever, with no ground forces (boots on the ground), or what their telling us about all these other nation's that will pay for it and have their forces fighting it or whatever. Didnt the first invasion of Iraq year's back to overthrow Saddam supposed to take a couple week's or some nonsense too? ... it damn near drove us into the poorhouse financially, went on for year's and killed thousand's of our troop's, inncocent Iraqi's, and screwed up their country worse than when the dictator Saddam ruled in power. I mean ... I'll believe it when I see it, and HAVE NO reason to believe any of this yet, and see no past history precedent to, since we are almost alwayz lied to on these issues.

Also be clear headed here that this is nothing more than psycholigically programming and grooming us subconsciously through politician's via media's to accept and cheer on another multi- billion dollar expenditure of war, which will be more elaborate in media presentation because of these mid- term election's coming in a couple month's and the big holiday spending season ... squeezing American's even more for every dollar they can milk us for. None of this type expenses has been addressed in year's as far as so called defense spending, any more than we were subconsciously and politically programmed to actually think that we got Health Care Reform, which we DID NOT, and none of the money milking in that been even slightly reformed, but even increased on us, making healthcare even more expensive than ever, with insurance, medical and pharmaceutical corporation's dictating to government and IRS how and when to penalize us now for not buying into their newly over- inflated plan's, product's, services, etc. Ron Paul below, then I will add a portion after.

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 : )


You know ... boots on the ground, shoes on the ground, dogshit on the ground or whatever talk ... bottom line is whatever we do getting deeper and deeper into these games is gonna cost us a fortune (as it currently is, but enhancing it), it's one invasion and occupation after another, one friend becomes a foe, then one foe becomes a friend next year, and we have to end up supporting dictator's, replacing them and taking out the other in death, while we increase and breed terror cell's, threat's and more anger toward's us for our action's which flip- flop like the season's change. And this is mostly about one thing only ... oil business. I mean ... Iraq or Iran for instance just for a couple examples may not turn out as many barrel's of oil a day as Russia, USA or Saudi Arabia ... but when you have countries turning out 3- 4+ million barrel's a day, any high stakes investor/ gambler dont turn their nose up to it either and walk away, and this whole region of the world is importante for the transport of this all over the world, so your alwayz looking for friend's. That is what our so called American interest's amount to though, just like Afghanistan and the abundance of resources there, and even lithium and copper or whatever else ... it's about money basically ... not freeing people, helping people or much else. Some of this nonsense is manipulated anywayz, some of the terror threat's are overstated, some may even be bullshit in cases and orchestrated  by our corporate dictation to cause conflict, invade and occupy ... all to win our support and keep voting for and supporting the same old thing's, and spending our money the same old way. And hardly anyone in the mainstream establishment of our 2 political parties will even touch it with any truth, those who do like Ron Paul or other's are called nutcases, extremist's or whatever ... and too many of us sop up this nonsense and lick the plate.

We already know that we unintentionally caused this terror threat, many of us have talked about this for year's and year's, what our action's can create ... but the money intoxication distort's our vision. We caused alot of the trouble in Iraq for instance, and now because of how much we invested in lives and money we feel an obligation to finish the job, and the way we been handling the whole thing isnt working. I feel sorry for the folk's over there, but what else can we do? ... keep doing the same, year after year, and listening to excuse after excuse? I look at it like a bad relationship ... you know ... where you have a mate, the sex is good or whatever, but everything else is not, and it just dont work out ... the smart thing to do, is not get deeper, but walk away. Same thing here ... the money is good, but nothing else work's out ... I would retreat as Dr. Paul put's it, and bud out until someone over there get's their shit together. The mega corporation's/ entities used our money of the American people to make this investment ... now they want us to clean up their ill planning too? At the same time, the cost of walking away will also be hefty, it will disrupt oil, business, market's, and if any of these group's gain more power, because of their commitment to their faith ... they will come after us, and like Dr. Paul said ... they know how to hurt us, and that is to hurt our money/ economies, sabotage, bombing's of importante facilities/ structures, etc, etc.  

In these times, I am more concerned with all the issues we have here in our country, I am not worried about our oil/ energy supply, we have an abundance, I am concerned on what we are doing for our school's/ children, healthcare, infrastructure, securing job's and a healthy domestic economy, our liberties, etc ... the thing's I talk about throughout this journal ... not just interest's of a bunch of investment bank's and too big to fail entities who want to buy up all the oil in the world so they can pour it into the pot at the global oil casino. I am more of a nationalist as I explained to these folk's the other day, I dont focus on being No#1, or babysitting some of these ingrates in some of these nation's, nor really give a shit much if you dont want to be our friend, fighting their century long war's over religion's or the related ... dont get me wrong, I'm not against folk's battling for their freedom or whatever ... I mean ... ya'll have at it ... and when and if you finish up and come back down to earth later and want to do business, give us a call ... in the meantime ... I will stand on the sidelines (out of your country), and try to take care of business at home where we have so many problem's in this country (USA) that we need to address, and stay close to our neighbour countries. Sooner or later, with time, negotiation's, bloodshed or whatever ... these folk's in some of these region's are going to have to decide and work out their problem's, we cant do it all for them, it has to be their work with their hand's, and what's in their interest's and heart's. I personally dont feel we belong in some of these conflict's.

The possibility of terror threat and attack's on US soil? ... of course there are gonna be threat's, look what we helped create ... I have confidence though as well, that we have some of the best defense weaponry in the world too ... so I dont worry about that, as much as I would worry about some of the candy- ass, incompetent, weak representation and leadership we may have that decides what we should do and how we should respond to an attack or threat on our soil. Someone attack's us ... you attack back fast and heavily making sure they feel the hit, and are not in question as to where we stand and our willingness to defend our land, liberty, and what is our's, ready to rock- n- roll at the drop of a hat. I would get rid of the Guantanamo Bay institution/ detention, cut loose/ free everyone there with monetary compensation in the million's, and forget their charges, since we have been reluctant to even be able to make cases on many to begin with, or not doing nothing but detaining them, which cost's us million's annually to detain even. Those in this country that are immigrant's with passport's who may seem a threat, and actual evidence of such, I would deport them ... plain and simple ... not set up community center's for them to organize and fund them, or respond like these neo- liberal American's that kiss your asses like an ass fetishist when you just want to exploit what our democracy stand's for instead of embracing it. And like Dr. Paul said ... try to get those folk's out of those nation's who are American's and our allies, even if it's military chopper/ aircraft rescue's or whatever, that may want to get out ... if they choose to stay ... go ahead, but we cant be responsible for you either. Why are you there, if your not welcome?


Word Out for now ....

              **** MONEY MAGICK & THE BOOGEYMAN **** (added 06 September 2014)


The reason I wanted to add this, is to explain another side of sometimes bullshit that we are not quick to alwayz see, I noticed when listening to folks on this new terror threat, not one person seemed to even question if some of this was "ligit" ... all this emotion, whether anger, fear or whatever, but no question. We all know how easy it is for money to manipulate even our emotion's/ reaction's ... it is also even the cause of so much conflict, invasion's, occupation's or whatever that inspires retaliation ... then a religion, political, or social movement justifies the rebellion end, eh? It's just as easy to create a Hollywood end of the world movie that will send folk's home later with nightmares of the end times, I mean ... even much of our political election show's are designed and manufactured by whoever has the most money, much history get's wrote by those with most money as well, so much is manipulated, eh? ... that's just the fact's. I'm a street kid (58 year's old, but still a kid at heart {: ) ... so alwayz been skeptical of some thing's, having seen alot of "game" in my life ... or you can call me a "doubting Thomas" of sort. But at least I question is my point ... you dont have to be a conspiracy theorist to question.

Every major news media across the globe is saturated with images and news of this newest threat "ISIS", showing pictures/ videos of military style exercises in desert region's, with folks dressed in black ninja looking outfit's, folks threatening speaking perfect english, woof ticket's of "were gonna get you", talk of slaughter's, decapitation's, etc, etc ... then hour's later saying that intelligence agencies from the CIA to Interpol and anyone of importance "confirming" this is all and everything, and to be very afraid, etc ... I mean ... that's ALL we know. Yesterday a coalition of nation's banded together to fight this new evil, and all agreed to take so much of their countries revenues to start a task force to increase occupation's, bombing's, large scale military intervention, new security measures, wiretapping, etc. So here we are again with new security updates, rules, occupation's increases.  And all political figures vowed like warrior's to "kill" ISIS and basically any resistance along with that, that pop's up, and I'm sure million's of people were jumping for joy, just like when former President Bush said he would kill evil Saddam Hussein, and free Iraq's people, and retaliation for the 9/ 11 attacks or whatever. I mean for example, they were even arresting fast food worker's in New York City the other day, for just striking and voicing that they want a living wage ... they call it disorderly conduct, civil disobedience or whatever else these dayz, giving reason to hammer, detain and even harm or unofficially declare war on our own citizen's ... if you have a grievance, complaint, or question basically ... you are also a threat and disorderly or disobedient ... get my drift? Throughout history in our nation and around the globe, slaves were also punished for asking to be treated more fair, or for better condition's, for just speaking out ... you have alwayz had freedom of speech, but have alwayz paid a price in consequences for such as well, today we are a tad more civilised and everything is cloaked in pre- programmed political correctness garbage, so it's all the same shit, just in different packaging ... and were not as free, civilised or even liberated as we brainwash ourselves into thinking.

I am NOT saying that we dont face any terror threat's, we know we do ... and there will continue to be with some of the crap that is being done by those who dictate, but you should alwayz question and assess the degree of that threat. On the other hand, what if that threat isnt severe enough or there has been a lack of ? ... would there not be incentive for the big money to create a situation to justify a reason to occupy every nation more that is vital to their continued control and money making ventures? I mean ... without these terror threat's and group's, it would be very hard to sell people in just about any nation that they want to censor you more, invade your privacy more, or have increased military outpost's/ presence everywhere, and reason to have everyone who actually works for a living pay for it all, while they and all their political puppetry highside for the camera as "heroes" that saved us all from evil. And people all over are sick and tired of the increased invasion's, milking us to austerity, with excuse after excuse as to why we need to sacrifice more and it is all for our own good, taking their liberties and mobility away, having their wages cut more and more and feeding most peoples wealth/ money to these power's that unofficially dictate everything. Thing's are done for a reason, just as much as an invasion is done for a reason that may not be as simple as protecting freedom and liberties of people, and sometimes these entities frankly dont care much about people except for what they can get out of them ... not because they are humanitarian's and just love every breathing human being and want them all to be free and a big happy familia. All I am pointing out here, is that it is alwayz healthy to question.

MICHAEL SAM- JERRY JONES/ DALLAS COWBOYS (PT.2): Welcome to Dallas Mike! ... Mike tries to help Dallas' Defense ... while Jerry tries to help the NFL's STUPIDITY ... The "Rebuilding the DOOMSDAY DEFENSE" Edition


Well it's 2014 NFL season kicking off this week, and everyone who know's me, know's how I am glued to NFL season, so this posting will serve as Part 2 of "Jerry Jones/ Dallas Cowboys" & "Michael Sam" both, and to welcome Mike to the Cowboys, cause we sure as Hell need some good defense badly ... and Thanx to Jerry for bringing another good playmaker to the squad, despite all the controversy ... so also to point out just how heavy the stupidity can be in our so called liberated and loving nation. In Part 1 of "Michael Sam", I referred to seeing Mike in a Cowboys uniforn/ jersey, being maybe Jerry may hire him (I would have liked to see maybe QB Johnny Manziel come to Dallas too) ... well, that look's like it will become reality now ... Mike is from Galveston/ Houston area, and his Dad lives in Dallas from what I gather.

You know, when Mike got that call from the St. Louis Rams, he was so excited ... being able to get to do what he loves most, and that is to serve an NFL defense with his talent ... then all goes south recently when the Rams cut him despite how well he played, but they had other's to choose from as well, and are well supplied, remember that St. Louis Rams actually have 4 first round draft pick's on their defensive line. So many team's were so reluctant to even try Mike out though, just because of his personal life and the gay issue. Cowboys gave Mike a call, and he arrived in Dallas yesterday, today Mike will take his physical, which he should pass with flying colour's, and of course with that signing will get him on the practice squad and should be able to get on the roster hopefully, and get past this American NFL phobia or whatever in Hell it is.

Back in the dayz ... Dallas was known historically for what the NFL called the "Doomsday Defense" (best of the best) ... today in post 2013 season, has one of the worst defenses in the league, and for the last few year's, defense has been a serious issue with our Cowboys. Mike is in the top category when it comes to his defensive position, his college record is clear as far as performance ... and he actually done very well when trying out for the Rams. No one else may want to grab Mike right now, all trying to hide and beat around the bush and keeping hush- hush or whatever ... but Jerry certainly isnt shy of publicity, and grab's what good talent he can when he see's it. I heard a couple say that Mike is too "small" to be a DE (defensive end), but again, his record and college show's otherwise, and too ... you must realize that not only size has to do with it, you must be able to move quick and precisely, Mike has that quickness, and adequate size. Mike in my opinion would be ideal for defensive special team's work, and even Rams coach Jeff Fisher said when Mike was with the Rams, that Mike has "exceptional depth" as far as defense, in particular as an end, and had already a few sack's (QB sack's) under his belt just in pre- season. Welcome to Dallas Mike ... and hope to see you putting your talent's to work here, we need your tough/ quick defensive moves.

***** CNN/ U.S.: Missouri Police officer on leave over video in which he says: 'I'm ... a killer' ...

I encourage you to watch the top video in this link before you read anything else on this page. This St. Louis County Police officer (Dan Page) was assigned to work the protest's in Ferguson, and since his statement's popped up, is now put on administrative leave as usual, pending a psychological evaluation. I wouldnt even put a man like this on leave ... his ass if I were a chief would be out the door in a heartbeat, with no goddamn pay either! I mean ... the man is certainly entitled to his opinion and I have no issue if he is a racist, anti- gay/ lesbian, and anti women, I frankly dont give a shit ... but you sure as Hell wouldnt have a goddamn job in my department ... you can bank on that!

African American's are in particular targeted probably more than anyone that I have seen, and this is all over the country, and even within the black population, not just young black men ... but even women as you can see throughout this series, and at all ages ... it actually is worse now in some cases as far as targeting innocent citizen's, as I told some kid's I talked to (along with my grandson) who were asking me question's about the 1960's and civil rights era, and NOT alwayz class has to do with it as much as just basic race/ skin colour. Remember this particular case 4 year's back or so of Janice Wells ... just look at the video posted here, this is a respected citizen in her community, late 50's African American, and a school teacher, who called the cop's for a suspected burglar ... you know ... the folk's that you call that are there to protect and serve, the ones that get paid from your hard earned tax dollarz as well. That and these are just a "few" of the cases, again ... I would have to devote this journal/ blog full time to rights violation's of citizen's, abuse of authority and the persecution of African American's to even list a fraction of the cases ... so Yes ... African American people have every damn right to be furious as Hell over this, and that resentment should roll over to every American whatever race, culture, religion or political affiliation, even civil libertarian's should join in especially ... this is NOT democracy at all. Everyone from these preacher's to politician's who alwayz call for peace, forgiveness and love, obviously have some kind of fantasy world they themselves live in, getting too soft, fat, and lazy sitting around too much, making easy money off us ... this is not the world that our average citizen's live in.


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

However, the outright firing an officer from the job can get a lil tricky and complex, but some of these officer's in many cases dont seem to get reprimanded in any way ... so alot need's to be addressed in these area's, and that need's to be addressed in the legislative area, and with police union's/ organization's, which is currently kind of screwed up. I mean ... I seen cop's in the Dallas area for instance that got fired for outright offenses such as armed robbery to slinging/ dealing dope/ drug's, sexual assault's, etc ... but also seen cop's that were fired for say use of excessive force of some kind that just ended up working for some other department somewheres else, like in more smaller town's throughout the state. Also when a chief does seriously reprimand an officer, it can cause some interdepartmental and morale issues with officer's, kind of like when cop's dont like cop's that snitch on cop's for example ... a cop so called "standing his/ her ground" and doing what they were "trained" to do get's more complicated.

Dallas Police recently have started a new type training system for officer's on the usage of force, because we had 12 fatal shooting's by cop's this year, 3 this last week ... this will have cop's in Dallas relying and focusing more on non- lethal force with more usage of taser's or other equipment and method's to apprehend suspect's. But these type changes are needed all over the country, especially in the larger urban areas. One of the thing's that were forgetting here, that in many, many cases of death by law enforcement in our country, is that these people were not armed or even much threat in many cases to officer's or anyone ... that is a problemo ... I mean, even back in the dayz of the wild west, shooting a person in the back or unarmed was frowned on ... NOT acceptable ... that is not forward progress or even fair defensively or any other justified reasoning, it's just reckless behaviour on law enforcement's part ... so dont bitch and whine about the behaviour of rioting and looting ... or how you feel threatened by word's from a suspect ...  stop being a unionized crybaby ... or whining about how tough your job is! ... go find another damn job if you cant do the job! ... ya'll in law enforcement instigated this yourselves, period!

Another thing to realize, when our leaders whine about violence, crime or whatever ... violence just like gun's are embedded in our nation's culture even, have been since the start of it. We start war's over corporate, mining interest's (which contributes to breeding terrorism too), and even sometimes just to sell defense contract's, after all, money is the No#1 God of this country (as my Dad told me as a kid), we let cop's get away with abusing and killing citizen's, we abuse our children and manipulate their thinking, pump them full of mind altering pharma drug's, push crap food on them for profit's, bankrupt them to get an education, and drive many into poverty, and do every crooked thing in the book (we even wrote the book at that). Yet you call our children "criminal"?, or bitch when they decide to retaliate the year's of abuse? ... and you wonder WHY? ... do you ever stop and look at yourselves at the top and the reality THAT YOU mostly created? So when they come at you in defiance or for revenge ... dont whine and cover up and act dumb, talking about how "right" you are ... ya'll created your own reality, did you not teach them?

Part 18 of the "Police Brutality" series will be to look at the police shooting death of Mike Brown and the related circus of misery that these folks have been going through in Ferguson and the St. Louis area, after all, just within dayz of the Brown shooting during the Ferguson protest's, another young man who shoplifted a couple can's soda pop, Mr. Kajieme Powell, got also killed by St.Louis police (video of the Powell shooting and newsread here), Powell clearly taunted police, they say he had a knife, and started to approach officer's, yelling to kill him, etc. And my heart and thought's go out to the families of these men, despite their so called criminal action's, because I sure as Hell dont think either that Brown was a bad kid at all, and I feel sorry for the young children of this type small community who live in suburbia to have to experience this and their families, with all the outsider's and all the militarized police involvement, this is a shame, period.  But I also wanted to say something about the way this investigation and so called jury presentation is looking, what the law states, and the possible outcome of this at the rate this is going, which is how I see it only, and maybe I'm wrong, so hope that I am for those who are looking for a murder conviction of any of these officer's.

I hesitated to even cover this till now, and because this whole thing as simple as it is, has just been a confusing mess (as far as information release by law enforcement), with more that would leave folk's scratching their head's in question or saying something like ... so and so "should've, would've or could've", with very shakey and very unsatisfactory dissemination of information, delayz in releasing the officer's name (Officer Darren Wilson), even after they knew that they had the officer as protected as you can get, with conflicting testimonies from witnesses and police changing their stories, only releasing part of the story piece by piece, lack of video, to where the only video is post mortem of Mr. Brown after the shooting lying dead, etc. But the coverage of this has been a constant, and I will just link CNN below, because despite any criticism to CNN, they have at least stayed on this case day and night and seem's to have tried their damnedest to get all information possible, and this has also came up in discussion with several here in my community and I told a few of these folks that I WILL do a posting on this, this weekend for sure. Some link's below, then I will add my part after.





***** CNN/ U.S.: Dueling narratives in Michael Brown shooting ... this has several links and video's in it, which CNN been covering night and day




   *****************************************************************************
                                                            UPDATES:


***** CNN/ U.S.: (added tuesday 26 august 2014) What's next in the Michael Brown case? ... this is screwed up of course, because this is one of those closed door type grand jury review's, nothing being made public, even though all the juror's also are somewhat tainted, they have to be, if they were chosen from the community ... your telling me none of them heard nothing about this case? (all from St. Louis County?) Why do I find that hard to believe? There is also new released audio from another anonymous phone (supposedly FBI are reviewing) with 10 gun shot's linked here, first 6 shot's then a pause for roughly 3 second's and another 4 shot's? ... they say they want to review it to see if it is authentic? (your telling us that weeks after this case, you still cant release the amount of shot's fired? ... c'mon now) I have to wonder, with even "NO" testimony as far as the officer's version, and now your telling me, that the number of shot's are in question? ... how can that be? ... do they not have the officer's gun after the shooting to determine exactly how many shot's were fired? Forensic's should be able to determine exactly how many shot's were fired, you didnt even take that gun to check on such a high profile case with supposedly a lack of evidence? ... why do I also find that hard to believe? I'm also not familiar with Missouri law, but here in Texas when there is a grand jury review for an indictment case, although they are generally closed door, by law the defendant and other's involved in the case can petition/ request to the court to be present and even testify before that jury panel ... and it usually is granted ... so I dont understand what in Hell is going on here?, and dont like it frankly. I only hope that the people really question this ... Brown and Johnson's attorneyz certainly sound like they have some question's ... and you can bet your ass I would. I dont even see ANY transparency here to be honest, nothing but one piece of bullshit after another ... where the Hell is any transparency in this?

***** I'm not trying to paint officer Wilson here as a villian ... but this is supposed to be all about transparency and truth, and since there is so much talk in media, of transparency, hugging, love of community, etc, etc ... shouldnt there be a lil more? ... and officer Wilson living up to his oath to serve and protect and the rest to the community he loves? I also dont understand after so much time since the shooting, why officer Wilson would be reluctant to make a media appearance (besides his attorneyz telling him not to), but, if he is confident that he was acting in defense of himself, I mean ... I would want to tell my lawyer's that I have nothing to hide and demand that I am allowed to give my side of the story in public, no one can shoot me (him) on a tele/ TV screen, eh? And IF you have NOTHING to hide (as police alwayz tell us citizen's when the want to search and question without probable cause or warrant) ... practice what ya'll preach and DONT hide ... just come out with it, it's simple.



Papantonio: Right Wing Media Defends Michael Brown Shooter ... Thanx to RING OF FIRE RADIO ... a piece here from Brown's attorney Daryl Parks, and also attorney Mike Papantonio ... and yes ... this is already becoming "political", and right wing media is the ones mainly responsible as well for the now hundred's of thousand's of dollarz that been pouring in for defense of officer Wilson.

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



Hell NO! ... the people shouldnt be satisfied and blindly just trust this investigation, I sure as Hell dont, and if I did I would say it here, plain and clear with no beating around the bush. Especially with the history of these investigation's and the outcome across our nation ... and No, I dont trust this caller named "Josie" who done a radio testimony of what happened that day, that was consistent to Officer Wilson's story (although officer Wilson's story hasnt even been officially released, so we are having to go with what you tell us? ... this is kangaroo court style), there is no way I trust anything of someone who hides their identity to testify on something this critical and importante whether it's on the radio or any other media, making up excuses as to "why" they hide ... as far as I'm concerned, if you cant come right out in the open with who you are and prove anything, I havent much reason to believe anything you say as having ANY credibility, period. And No ... if I had any kind of power over it, I would NOT let St.Louis County Prosecutor Robert McColloch handle the grand jury case on this ... no way in Hell with his history and background ... and I am NOT saying he is a villian, it just leaves too much room for him to be partial because of his family ties to law enforcement and the death of his father in the line of duty who was a cop as well. And as far as I'm concerned even the President (Obama, who I also been a strong supporter of) hasnt done enough to address this, but I understand what kind of load that the President has on him, especially with the troubles in Iraq and Syria currently and having to explain to the American people that he may have to break his promise of no boot's on the ground ... a statement he should have never made to begin with, knowing that insurgencies will later take you up on it. But at least sending in Attorney General Holder and the federal government to oversee some of this is a start ... because frankly we have some civil and across the board rights issues in this nation that are serious. But so far all I seen from the federal side (since they all talk of this being about transparency) is simply hug's, a few tear's with the victim's families and alot of talk from law enforcement and government folks, especially coaching the family of Mr. Brown to ask for "peace" ... but NOTHING else, or ANY question's being answered.

The character assassination of Mike's partner Dorian Johnson has already started, before even a trial, which you have to expect, it's funny how they alwayz question if any of these kid's/ people ever been busted/ arrested or smoked a joint/ blunt? ... where they are over reluctant to even question any of the officer's in these instances background's, or if they (officer's) EVER smoked a goddamn joint?!! No ... after looking at this closely as I can ... I dont believe even that Mike was a bad- ass ... I just believe he was a big kid, and may have even been influenced some by his buddy Dorian, being that Dorian is 4 year's older than him ... I mean, when I was a kid (and I grew up in some tough street's, believe me), I was kind of an on the edge kid, with alot of let's say "energy", who done some dumb thing's because of older kid's who knew my vulnerabilities and would "dare" me ... and ... I fucked up a few times myself. I dont believe that Mike even had the slightest clue that his action's or intention's and response (basing this on the video in the store they identify as Mike and Dorian) in that store is technically "strongarm robbery", he was just flexing his muscle to this store owner when the store owner resisted and/ or took an attitude toward's Mike, it was just spontaneous, if Mike would have really wanted to harm the store owner, he would have beaten him, plain and simple, not got in his face and do a push and shove dance with him and shooting word's (there is also conflicting report's as what Mike and Dorian were actually doing in that store video, that it may have been an arguement instead of any kind of theft) ... but this is where Mike fucked up ... just like this other angry young man Kajieme, maybe not expecting the police to just shoot him in broad daylight in the City of St. Louis after Mike's killing with all the witnesses and heat in the area.

I think part of Wilson's story may be true, "if" being that he just told them to get the Hell out of the road, and he didnt get the robbery suspect call till second's after then decided to pursue them, so far there is conflicting evidence even if there was a real struggle with Mike and Dorian as the police and officer Wilson say, or how injured the officer was or just how much of an assault on the officer occured, which I have no reason to believe whatsoever that this kid Mike tried to take the officer's gun ... I dont think he is that kind of kid (I knew some real bad asses in my time, and Mike doesnt fall into that category). However, I have not heard any bit of confirmation that even the store owner reported the incident, nor any confirmation that the robbery call was even dispatched, usually in any case, especially a homicide/ robbery, 911 calls and even the dispatch call is made public, both must be recorded and be available on record, neither has the store owner made any statement in media, or supposed witnesses at the store. I mean, we live in an era where hardly a thing is missed whether it's on our cell/ smart phones, or much else we use ... you even have hard drive forensic's, dash cams on patrol unit's, your key strokes recorded, call's, email's, video record of walking down the street to driving down the street, overhead drones that you cant see with the naked eye ... that could read even how much money you have in your wallet if they wanted, nothing in public these dayz is private in other word's (very, very little is private, and you have to make an effort for that), etc ... and your telling us that this is all you got week's later? ... why do I also find that hard to believe? ... you know right there that it's a lie, buying more time to cover up and wind down angry people. Only all peoples phones at the scene where Mike was killed were confiscated and law enforcement officially after all this time has kept tight lipped and released nothing at ALL. So someone is covering up here and clearly being less than honest after further review of this, I have no doubt now. Because you know that the media's combined havent withheld nothing, they grab everything they can get, the witnesses at the shooting scene have talked publicly, and even Dorian ... so who does that leave that hasnt gave any info of substance? ... you got it ... so there you know.

The jury looking at this will be told something like ... all this cop know's is that he possibly according to the call has a "store robbery" suspect in reach who look's big (and so far even the reported "call" and what it said hasnt been released to the public, it should have been since the start of this), and NOT enough info as far as how dangerous this suspect may be, and respond's with full force that he is allowed and trained for by law, it just happened too fast and even the officer didnt think much ... but yes ... this officer "was shooting to kill" from the autopsy report's of any/ all ... and in my opinion ... this is just excessive force permitted frequently these dayz, that can easily be avoided. I mean ... this shit/ tactic's like anything else can have a slippery slope, there is a flip- side to everything. So to me ... trying to get a murder indictment and/ or conviction on either of these cases will be difficult (this here is clear cut cop murdering Oscar Grant for example, and even this case was not justly handled), if everyone is impartial and unbiased even. Dont misunderstand me here as far as the issue of cop's using deadly force, this is an example of one case with Capt. David Huff in Oklahoma that I support the use of deadly force, not all cases are alike, so deadly force shouldnt be used just casually as the only way either. What need's to be addressed more than anything in this nation is the USE of DEADLY FORCE, the whole goddamn thing need's to be re- evaluated, or else you are going to have more and more of these cases increasing ... same as the stand your ground law's need to be looked at a lil more carefully and revised (and I am a pro- defense and gun supporter even).

As far as the police response to the demonstration's and the concern's over the militarization of police forces in this nation, this should be carefully looked at as well. But also understand that this is a sign of the times simply as far as force ... the police know in this nation that they have a VERY well armed citizenry and alot of angry people, they are going to build their defense stronger than we have ever seen in our lives. At the same time the response from government/ law enforcement in these demonstration's was disrespectful the way it was handled and an over- reaction from Governor Nixon, and understand that yokel's dont know how to deal with typically big city issues like these that are more common in big town's like New York or Los Angeles ... and panic too quickly (Ferguson is part of the City of St.Louis area and even within the freeway loop belt that surround's the city, but as a suburb town has independent government ... so it's not rural). As far as the looting of businesses? ... you have to expect that element, it actually hasnt much to do with race either as some whites may think ... if your young, restless, angry, under- employed or unemployed or related, regardless of what skin colour you are ... this is alwayz a possibility and doesnt represent the overwhelming majority and their anger or grievances. Again ... this is an issue that should be concerning of all American's, regardless of race, politic's, religion or whatever. Many American's, especially the young, will start to see that we need a new civil rights movement, and to revolt against this while it is your right, something I talk about on occasion with the younger folk's (teen's/ 20's), because they are asking many question's and feel the pinch today, and heard about our problem's in the 1960's, wondering if it's starting all over again ... they know something aint right somewhere, just on their gut feeling, when you listen to their concern's. The people expect some goddamn answer's and progress on this, and rightfully so ... so dont get too cocky thinking that they will just wear down and forget it, or you will just roll out the tank's everytime they get angry and it will be a cakewalk ... cause it WONT ... you cant win and it can only disrupt your monetary empires and market's, so wise the fuck up and do this at least as right as you can, and SHOW instead of just talking.

Other than that ... it's NFL pre- season and the Oakland Raiders are at the Green Bay Packers tonight, which I am going to enjoy now ... Word Out ....

AC/ DC- BON SCOTT: "Whole Lotta Rosie", "Dog Eat Dog", "Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be" & "Shot Down In Flames" ... A Tribute To BON SCOTT

http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo165/AngelFlowababe/Bon%20Scott/bon102.jpg
  Bon Scott



This posting will be a tribute to the Scottish born Australian vocalist/ lyricist/ songwriter and a cornerstone to building the mega hard rock crew AC/ DC, to honour in this journal's music/ arts honour roll society ... and I was really in the mood this morning for some of the early AC/ DC with Bon to kickstart my day {: ) Of course this crew has quite a history with award's, Hall of Fame induction, a long line of music, one of the top seller's of album's in history, record arena sellout's, etc, etc. And many when they think of this crew as far as vocal's think of Brian Johnson, who is a really powerful vocalist himself, and even on covering the work of Bon as you can see here on "Highway To Hell" or later work of his after Bon like "For Those About To Rock" and other great pieces. I remember the dayz of Bon Scott and his energy he brought to a show as if it was just a couple year's ago, even though it's been 34 year's now since he passed away (interview here with Bon Scott).

Bon Scott to me was one of those trademark vocalist's, inspired as a kid by "Little Richard", who the fan's were No#1 to him, focusing alot on being an arena type crew and presentation, not out to sell singles, but album's and great live show's, with lyric's that related to so many folks, and keeping it basic and raw, with the outstanding rhythm and lead guitar work out of Angus and his brother Malcolm, which was simply to me just basic progressive amplified blues guitar work ... I mean ... I look at Angus as a blues guitarist. Over the year's this crew and Bon has inspired so many in the industry in various genres of contemporary music as well (a really nice cover here from My Ruin of "Have a Drink on Me" ,and Joan Jett cover here of "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap"). So this posting I wanted to focus on those Bon Scott year's, and some of my favourites of his and the crew, the show's were as basic as it get's despite large arena type production, with not much stage show, lighting or anything, just basic raw in your face hard rock, and some of the best of the best at that! ... and Thank You Sir for all the great music and show's! ... Enjoy!

ERIC GARNER DEATH: Back on Black, Clashes of the Classes & Quality of Life Crimes ... The "PEACE, POT & POETRY" Edition ... (INCARCERATED AMERICAN PT.25) & (POLICE BRUTALITY PT.17)

http://assets.nydailynews.com/polopoly_fs/1.1873023!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/article_970/article-baez-0719.jpg

Eric & wife Esaw Garner



Man Dies After NYPD Chokehold (RIP Eric Garner of Staten Island) ... Thanx to MENTUHOTEP RA



***** RESTING IN PEACE: Some of the last word's here of Mr. Garner were ... "Everytime you see me you want to mess with me and harass me ... I'm tired of it ... this stop's today". Everytime injustice is shelled out to one of our children, parent's, familia and neighbour's, etc ... we alwayz call for peace, and assume that those who were killed intentionally or unintentionally are NOW resting in peace ... that IS somewhat foolishly a distraction from reality ... and somewhat insulting to those who lost their life in this manner ... they sure as Hell didnt die peacefully! NO ONE ... whether it is Mr. Garner or anyone else who dies like this is resting in peace UNTIL their death is AVENGED in some way! That is the ONLY way for PEACE and ANY kind of real JUSTICE!

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



This posting to review the death of Eric Garner of Staten Island (NYC), and will serve for 2 series of this journal "Incarcerated American" & "Police Brutality" series. The above video which led to Eric's death show's a common reality that happen's daily across New York and the nation, most of the time it dont result in death, but many injuries occur, you just never hear much about it unless it's in your neighbourhood. The outcry on this has been loud ... and rightfully so. Even families such as Ramsey Orta & Chrissie Ortiz harassed, and other's get shook down after, both of who got busted as well for "non- related" offenses ... Ramsey shot the above video, and his wife Chrissie I also wanted to include her video interview linked below with WPIX- 11 (NY), because what Chrissie sayz is the clear blunt reality of the condition without any of the bullshit, so I recommend hearing her out. Also included is a link with video of Eric's wife Esaw in the 2nd NY Daily News link below. I also put a link in to explain what exactly "Quality of Life Crimes" are below in the World Socialist Web Site link, since this is another 21st century pop- culture/ politically correct law/ term/ title which fuel's the fire of racism and classism in America and clashes between the classes, which end's up alot of times as simply hammering more back on black profiling and so forth. And the reason for me calling this the "peace, pot & poetry" edition is because we cant alwayz address our problem's with simple marches of peace, holding hand's, reciting poetry and smoking pot to give us a submissive attitude, or simply turning the other cheek ... which is why I included the 2 YouTube video's below that are some of the reaction to Eric's death during his funeral, which is straight to the point, straight common sense and a justified response. After below I will add some comment's on this of my own.




***** HUFFPOST/ CRIME: Eric Garner's Chokehold Death Leads To Push For Criminal Charges




***** NY DAILY NEWS: Hamill: Widow of Staten Island dad who died after cop put him in chokehold remembers husband as 'gentle giant' ... video and newsread with Eric's wife Esaw Garner




***** NY DAILY NEWS: Eric Garner: Citizen or skell? Some quality- of- life crimes just aren't worth enforcing




***** PIX 11/ NEW YORK: Wife of man who captured Eric Garner arrest says police are targeting her family ... this video with Mrs. Chrissie Ortiz (wife of Ramsey Orta who filmed Mr. Eric Garner being arrested by police, that resulted in Mr. Garner's death) is such a straight up view of just what the reality is in New York as far as tension's between community and police.




***** TIME: Wife of Man Who Shot NYPD Chokehold Video Arrested for Assault in Staten Island ... and Chrissie Ortiz was also arrested for assault as well as her husband




***** WORLD SOCIALIST WEB SITE: New York Mayor Giuliani announces crackdown on "quality of life" crimes ...  this link is 14 year's old, but to get a clear look of the flip- side at just what "quality of life" crimes consist of.




FUNERAL for ERIC GARNER, Public Demands! ... Thanx to APRIL WATTERS ... what this man is asking for are just the basics of what any citizen would expect as far as accountability ... he isnt asking for anything special. It's true, there are hundred's of files that have been closed and not being looked at.






FUNERAL for ERIC GARNER, Public is ANGRY!! ... Thanx to APRIL WATTERS ... I commend this man speaking below for standing up, enlightening folk's mind's, especially the youth and doing the right thing. Because I can assure you (and he even know's this well) that NYPD and anti- terror crew's are going to be tailing this man with an eye like a fox watching a hen house, there are more cop's and camera's than what you can see here catching every bloody word he is saying ... like he said "their on the rooftop's, bathroom's", etc. Although he is doing nothing that is illegal, they will have certain unit's that will basically put him and other's like him on their "shit- list's" ... perfect example would be folk's like Chrissie Ortiz & Ramsey Orta, they got track record's and are easy prey like many other's to harass. This man know's of the possible consequences, but stand's defiant regardless without hiding and ready for whatever comes. Regardless of how much these NYPD unit's watch folk's like this ... there is a "flip- side" to that coin ... because this will inspire thousand's of other citizen's to record the action's and word's of many more officer's, bring grievances, petition's, suit's, etc, to downtown and the department's, which in turn will require some action within their own to clean house in time. This is also a positive for the NYPD overall ... why? ... because again ... there are many more good cop's than bad cop's in this game ... many officer's dont want to have a thing to do with this rubbish, even officer's in their own department's/ unit's/ precinct's that speak out are harassed by other officer's ... that is how deep some of this can get.

And yes, first of all I listened to the police union's response and Pat Lynch here slamming Rev. Sharpton and how tough it is being a cop, etc. ... no doubt to be a cop especially in a town like NYC is a challenge, and NO, after reviewing this closer, I dont think that officer Pantaleo was out to choke Mr. Garner to death and was racially motivated, or lost his head (although officer Pantaleo has some history, I just think he's one of those tough guy street cop's ... and this time he fucked up big time) ... shit happen's, eh? The fact is though ... any of us whether intentional or unintentional would be booked in jail and charged with something, period ... not told to take a goddamn vacation with a paycheck ("paid administrative leave" is the official sugar coated term), and when we go to jail, we dont get preferred treatment (at least I sure as Hell NEVER HAD!! ... and I sure as Hell dont believe in giving this guy/ officer preferred treatment either) BUT ... as long as these instances keep getting danced around over and over and there is such a lack of enforcing any kind of accountability, shit is going to keep ON happening, that is the point here. And all due respect to Rev. Sharpton here, BUT ... you cannot just simply hold hand's, weep, pray/ meditate and march in your community and have press conferences and expect anything to change much ... you need to take it downtown ... that is where all these law's are being made that tell officer's to go out in the street's and target so called "undesirables", and that is exactly how they look at these folk's, whether they say it on camera or not, or whatever politipop word's they use ... like "quality of life" criminal's or whatever other politically correct nonsense they feed you. Peace, love, forgiveness, etc is great, but understand that it is difficult and somewhat unnatural to love that which seem's to position itself as your enemy, so you should also be able to understand folk's anger who go through this over and over and over. The gentlemen in the 2 YouTube video's above speak clearly what the condition is, plain and simple. Mrs. Ortiz in the above linked WPIX video explain's how folk's are criminalized, pressured, harassed and herded like cattle through the system, where Wall St investor's make a small fortune on their incarceration in much of this. Mrs. Ortiz's husband arrested for a gun possession charge that was on another person he was with? (maybe the person had a gun for self defense in their possession) then Mrs. Ortiz herself arrested because she assaulted a woman who insulted her over this ... all because of this case and murder ... so shit roll's downhill, eh? ... and those at the bottom alwayz seem to get smothered.

Mr. Lynch and his crew keep saying that Mr. Garner was arrested 8 previous times for selling loosies (basically selling/ slinging loose single cigarettes on the street corner) ... how many store owner's do they bust for selling single smokes? (plenty do in low income working class neighbourhood's, and by "law", it IS illegal for storeowner's to bust open pack's and sell singles) ... I mean ... Mr. Garner paid his tax when he bought the pack's/ carton's, people want to buy them since many people cant afford just to buy pack's and carton's, that is why loosies/ singles are sold. It's killing people with lung cancer? ... why in Hell do you let the tobacco companies and their lobbyist's manufacture and peddle them wholesale? ... if any of us do that, it's called manufacturing, distribution and delivery of a controlled and dangerous substance, eh? ... C'mon ... let's talk some truth for a change, eh? Nowadayz everyone is capable of becoming a registered criminal because of law's such as quality of life crimes. No shit ... you can be homeless which is vagrancy/ loitering, jaywalking, unpaid/  past due ticket's, an expired drivers liscense/ ID, sleeping in a doorway or subway, slinging loosies on the street corner, selling old stuff you have around the house in front of your residence to passing neighbour's like a garage sale, taking a piss in an alley if you cant find a toilet fast enough or are sick, asking for spare change/ panhandling, prostitution ... your a criminal to show some examples ... you are committing crimes. You dont even need to rob/ mug anyone, or take down convenient or liquor store hold- up's, have a weapon or even threaten anyone ... your a criminal, for trying to function or survive the only way you can or just to put food in your belly. My question is ... in a big metro area like NYC ... why in Hell do you need 3, 4, 5 officer's for a guy slinging loosies on a street corner?, everyone knew this guy, even the cop's, they know he's not a hard- ass or someone that is a threat to the community. It was too difficult to control him? he is too big? etc, etc ... I wonder if it passed any of the officer's mind's with 3 or 4 holding him down how easy it would have been to just slip one of those zip- ties they carry around his ankles? ... you can bet he wont travel too far then.

New York these dayz is alot harder than when I lived there year's back from what a couple neighbour's and buddies tell me who moved here from places like the Bronx and Brooklyn, with the way they have criminalized everything in that town from what they tell me. How many cop's do you see around the popular Wall Street bar's/ pub's/ hang- out's busting people for openly distributing cocaine? or peddling/ slinging under the counter other FDA approved designer drug's without the prescription? (prescription distribution ONLY is required by law) ... designer drug's that are equivalent to heroin and cocaine or speed/ meth? ... how many of them get harassed and shaken down in Wall Street circles for hiring numerous escort's to entertain at the bashes they have and basically prostitute business- wise? or how many of them do you harass if their getting a quicky of oral sex in a public park late night because they have fetish for the outdoor/ public sex thing? or how many do you hassle that are slinging/ selling couple hundred dollar cigar's at their hang- out's, or fell asleep on a train or in a cab, because they blacked out after getting too drunk? ... these are all quality of life offenses as well eh? As long as you have plenty of money, or are the right race/ ethnicity, or wear the right type dress/ clothing ... you are NOT targeted ... so class and race is an issue ... there's your proof.

These people in their own communities who dont even go anywheres near the Wall Street crowd's or their neighbourhood's, have every bloody damn right to protest loudly and get angry as Hell the way they are treated ... when you disrespect them and treat them as sub- human ... you have to expect to get fired back on at some point ... it's human nature regardless of what class or race category you fall into. And when people DO even try protesting peacefully like in downtown Manhattan, regardless if their white, black or brown, this is how they treat them and especially our daughter's, sister's, and women of all races. These wayz of governing and enforcement of rule/ law in our country, should NOT only enrage the African American people, BUT, every American regardless of race, gender, political or religious affiliation, and across the board what some of these same entities are doing to our nation, from reducing our wages, robbing our tax dollarz, trying to privatize everything from our post office and social security, pension's to prison system's to be ran by a board of director's, to trying to destroy our Constitution, to manipilating our laws of democracy and law enforcement agencies, the list just goes on, and it is ALL connected. This should no way be acceptable where folks just run around dizzy headed, saying thing's like ... "this is the new normal" ... (and this). We spent year's building and fighting for what we have, not to be taken away, and just think ... "oh well, that's how it goes" ... to tell these powers that we are not going to let ourselves be dictated like some impoverished 3rd world nation that doesnt have a pot to piss in ... this is obviously in your face and NOT democracy. The handling of this case is NOT in order or satisfactory, and neither should the families and people be in order and satisfied in their response, THIS IS NOT good enough for us ... that's the REALITY!


Word Out ....

THE BLACK BELLES: "Wishing Well", "What Can I Do?", "Honky Tonk Horror", "Lies" & "The Witch"

http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m7y9b5f26A1r05bfs.jpg

***** THE BLACK BELLES.COM



This induction to this journal's music/ arts honour roll society will have to go to The Black Belles out of Nashville, this is really a good sound and crew. I cant tell much about this crew because they dont really have alot of history, besides what you can link to through the Wikipedia or website above, they have an interview linked in there. They formed in 2009 and do have one full album out and a couple singles I believe. But Thanx as well to Jack White/ Third Man Records for taking an interest here and being a mentor to help them explore their potential and getting them signed to his label, Jack has a great eye and ear for talent and in my opinion picked a winner here for sure!

From what I gathered, they liked dressing in vintage clothing and wearing black, they love folklore and ghost stories, so that and the Bell Witch of Tennessee story helped inspire their name creating an image to go on. So far they say they are sticking with a 3 member crew, and Erin who it started with is no longer with them. I wanted to mix some "live" and video/ studio here, 2 of the pieces I know are covers, "Lies" was from The Knickerbockers (and was a fav of mine as a kid), and "The Witch" was from the Sonics, both from the mid- 1960's. I dont know what genre at this time I would put them in (I mean, I could fit them into a few probably) ... they are labeled as "Garage Goth" ... but they just really sound good and have a fresh raw sound to them, so I look forward to future work out of this crew, and wishing each of you the best to come, Sincerly! ... Enjoy!
