BRAD KATSUYAMA, MICHAEL LEWIS & CBS 60 MINUTES: Flash Boys use Crash Toys to RIG- A- GIG & Tackle HIGH SPEED TRADING ... (WALL ST/ SPEED TRADING PT.2) & (PUBLIC PATRIOT'S PT.31)




Brad Katsuyama/ IEXTRADING.COM




Michael Lewis ... new book "Flash Boys"



Preview: Rigged ... Thanx to 60 MINUTES





This posting to serve both the "Public Patriot's" & "Wall St/ Speed Trading" series of this journal. This kind of thing is more importante than what half of our political representation in Washington are doing as far as domestically in America's interests or being featured as doing in so much of the media in this mid- term election year, so it's importante to have in this journal, as well as a part of our Awakening actually. And some may wonder why would some Wall St folk's be so importante to highlight or even be considered as public type patriot's? ... it's because this is so critical as a trickle down effect that it has on every working person and familia, small business owner, the majority of investor's, retirement/ pension's, mortgages etc ... on down the line. This is one of the manufactured obstacles that damages our economies in some way, which damages our democracy and what this country values. And "money" is an importante issue any way you slice it ... when we hurt financially, it has a social effect on our society as well. And just imagine, how many in Washington like Congressman Paul Ryan who want to privatize Social Security to throw into this investment cesspool of today. And when you hear about folks like Martha Stewart and her conviction over insider trading ... she is just a pop- culture scapegoat to showcase ... folk's behind this are the real deal when it comes to insider trading techniques.

Folk's like Brad Katsuyama and the "Flash Boys", are kind of like a modern day "Untouchables" or heroes in a way, since we havent seen this sort of corruption in this nation since the Great Depression,  but now of course bigger and better than ever ... these today are far more dangerous, after all, the so called racketeer's of the old school were saint's compared to what we see today, they had common values as so many of us and usually only killed or harmed those who done them wrong basically, who basically back then just was behind dealing illegal vices of sort, and actually sold you something ... these parasites today dont give back a thing and only take, or even sell a product of worth or interest. Today these slithering parasites that hide and set up these schemes and scam's are the lowest scum, what they do destroyz families, business, our young enterpreneur's, investor's, inventor's, democracy, national defense, and an endless list ... and dont blame the computer's ... computer's only are doing what their programmed to do, it's these slithering parasites behind it who design and manufacture some of these financial crises and this that need a challenge and to be exposed. And folk's that expose this who are in the spotlight such as Michael Lewis play their part as heroes as well.

What was a lil shocking, was how many were surprised or shocked that this is going on from various articles I've read ... are you kidding or been asleep? For year's we didnt mind a lil skimming from the pot etc ... it's part of America ... but these people behind this got so intoxicated that they dont know when to stop where the greed just get's excessive and way out of order. They been scamming the small people for year's of course, but because of their intoxication, they started scamming the wrong people ... as I pointed out before throughout this journal, it's just a matter of time until many folk's who invest big buck's are going to feel the pinch too ... and this is what is happening ... they are screwing the butter that flavour's the bread and are going to face a resistance and get "made". And folks like these Flash Boys have their own toys too to fight and crash these scam's, and will gain more trust from the masses as well as future investor's in time ... you can take that to the bank! Full video and transcript below and Thanx again to CBS "60 Minutes" too. This will also be included in "DEBT CRISIS PT.1/ THE PAPER DOLL SHOW".

CHILDHOOD POVERTY IN AMERICA: ... A HALF- PLATE over a HALF- CENTURY ... The "2nd Helpin" Edition ... (From The FOXHOLE with Bernie PT.18) & (THINKING of the KID'S? PT.3)


http://www.alternet.org/files/styles/story_image/public/story_images/screen_shot_2014-03-18_at_2.59.51_pm.png

***** BERNIE SANDERS: Childhood Poverty In America


This posting to also serve both the "From The FOXHOLE with Bernie" & "Thinking of the Kid's?" series for this journal. It's been a half century since President L.B Johnson's war on poverty was declared ... which seem's more like a war on kids ... and still here in 2014 we still have to push relentlessly for so called "change" ... the change though that you see more of over the last half century is this in America. It's great that this passed the Senate and hope that it can get somewhere in actuality ... the great thing is pushing this during the election year and Thanx to Senator Mikulski (MD), Senator Sanders (VT) and all involved, cause sometimes you need a lil force or some bargaining chip's. Some will feed you the endless arguement that this poverty and neglect of our young whether it's in education, health care, food, daily necessities, etc ... is ALL only a part of capitalism ... I never did buy that and factually it's a lie, as a matter of fact, the way capitalism is designed it can and has brought people out of poverty and was designed to nourish the future offspring to do better and greater than we have ... so it's a bullshit arguement, twisted, delayed and suppressed by special interest's. Some other's will try to make you feel good by telling you something like "... well at least were better off than those poor in Somalia " (or some other impoverished nation) ... and we should respond to these so called "leader's" by saying ... "this aint fucken Somalia, okay?" ... and ... "what the fuck are you doing to serve your nation and earn your fucken paycheck?". We spent year's working hard and building up the great democracy that this is ... many will not let you just simply take that away with word's and corporate/ banking inspired drafted legislation without a fight ... get that shit straight.

The links above have news coverage of what has been happening to this nation, and they go back to at least 2009, I have been covering this since the beginning of this journal in 2008. So far since then, we have had every excuse and lie told to us by the mainstream of political representation about what they are doing to help our country domestically from losing so much of it's wealth amongst the working and middle classes who made this country so great, so much of promises to work on it, and constantly told through them and their media sources, how we are improving and doing better, etc, etc ... and an endless stream of solid 100% USDA bullshit, nothing else, this country has been on the decline since, and there has not even been a recovery from the recession, regardless of the bullshit you hear about there has ... that's the reality. While they focus all their concern on issues other than this nation and allow these entities to rape this country over and over and over ... this is what the problem is, yet they throw these little social issues at us like having to fight for equal rights for women, gay's, etc ... and tell us if we dont continue to vote for them, they will take them rights, or not allow them, etc. The fact is, as I have pointed out time and again since the start of this journal, that millions of American's are seeing this and getting sick of the threat's, soon we will wake up and come to a point where we say, "so what!" ... you wont let gay/ lesbian marriage? ... no big deal ... you wont let women have equal rights across the board? ... so what!, or any of the other shit they use to keep our minds and opinion's off what they are doing to us and this nation by distracting us and keeping us fighting each other with these social issues. Then there are the so many like myself that frankly dont give a shit what you say we can do as far as our relationship's or rights ... we will do what the Hell we feel like. Basically we will get to the point where we will get sick of "asking" and start "taking", and making our own decision's and molding our own future without them ... this is why I call this period the awakening, it's just a matter of time. Right this moment 6 year's after I started this journal ... already over 70% of American's are sick and tired of both dominating political parties ... period.

No doubt when we alwayz brag of how were No#1 in America  as far as so called developed/ industrialized countries ... there is no doubt looking at the stats & figures that we are No#1 or run a close first place when it comes to abuse of our children and not planning our future, and Texas is a perfect example, being that this state is as smothered in wealth as it get's, yet at the bottom almost when it comes to education and child care need's and neglect of so much related. And it's not like all the politician's are corrupt or in some conspiracy, the bottom line is we need to get "some" of the money out of politic's. There are many who unlike someone like Sen. Sanders below, Warren, Ron/ Rand Paul, Jesse Ventura (former politician), etc ... in other word's folk's who show strength ... dont have those qualities, and too many of what we have sort of live in some state of fear, and are afraid to propose and speak up and/ or go against the grain. The bottom line is, those types simply cant be in position's to lead or get the job done, they dwell on fear or political correctness ... and that can only lead to failure and lack of any progress in a time efficient manner.

Some of these neo- conservative types of today, will say that alot of this poverty is generational, lazy people, welfare recipient's, etc, etc ... here is the reality though ... much of the poverty you see today has been forced and indirectly legislated on people, the kind that take middle income working and tax paying families of decades, rob's their homes through foreclosures, put's student's with basic 4 year degrees and even further in bankruptcy position's, then legislating law's to where they cant legally file bankruptcy ever, people that have for year's paid good premium's for healthcare, yet you had let medical provider's get away with taking advantage of them, and the list goes on ... you are taking productive middle America which is the butter on the bread of our domestic economy and tossing everything they have worked and fought for to the dog's and ripping them off ... that's the REALITY! And those who are running this country into the ground are trying to get that same thing happening across this nation, where the gap between wealth and poverty is much greater, which is an unhealthy economic's attitude, plan and vision for the future of the country, a country that so many even in Washington has sold out to the highest bidder year's ago. But enough from me and on to Bernie below for the lowdown ... and Thank You Senator!



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


Childhood Poverty in America ... Thanx to BERNIE SANDERS ... when Bernie sayz below that we would think that we have the moral responsibility to take better care of our children/ offspring (?) ... Well ... that's logical and certainly "natural" to nurture and "do for" the best we can for our future generation's ... oddly, this is not only "natural" and logical balanced thinking ... but looking at so many other animal's in the animal kingdom ... they "act" with MORE "moral responsibility" than human's in this area ... imagine that! ... it's certainly the reality ... just look at other animal's.

***** PD/ RCJ: The GRAND ($1000) ILLUSION TRINITY: ... Following the "BLIND" ... will NOT make you see "CLEARER" .... this posting briefly sum's up the current reality



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


***** POST NOTE: The reason that this journal has series highlighting Senator Sanders, is the same reason this journal has a series for Senator Elizabeth Warren for instance, or other's that I highlight throughout this journal. Take Sanders & Warren ... these 2 Senator's are really exceptional in job performance as far as politician's in the mainstream of politic's, that is why they pop up throughout this journal and related series. I mention and stress this throughout the journal or to folk's that I meet and talk to, because time and again I have talked to so many folk's who didnt know who these 2 Senator's were or even heard of them ... Yes, just last weekend even I was talking to a younger couple in their early 30's, who thought they were pretty much informed or up on the political arena and fairly outspoken, who said they never even heard of these folk's, but yet they knew about folk's like Gov. Chris Christie, Hillary Clinton as example who are constantly being groomed for Presidential choices to come in 2016 by the media's ... neither of which in my opinion I would choose to have in the Oval Office. But this is what and how our political system has been contaminated into with of course what the "money" chooses to groom as our next President or political heroes/ saviour's of some sort, so that is why I highlight folk's throughout this journal like these 2. The choices they present us with are pretty lame as far as leadership choices is what I am saying ... same as someone like Mitt Romney ... folk's that are rather weak on standing up to large corporate or banking icon's for instance, or alot more talk than action, and frankly pretty much worthless as having true leadership qualities (unless they prove and show otherwise, but too many havent yet). We waste too much valuable time on those who dont deserve our time too much, because of these choices.

GOLDEN EARRING: "Twilight Zone" & "Radar Love"




***** GOLDENEARRING.NL



This posting to take a peek at and honour a couple of rock music classic songs from years back from an outstanding Dutch crew out of The Hague, Netherlands ... Golden Earring. I seen this crew on their American leg of the tour below featuring the song "Twilight Zone" ... and they were really tight "live" ... and especially really enjoyed the special drums/ percussions attraction/ show performed by Cesar Zuiderwijk ... alwayz loved the bass of Rinus Gerritsen, vocal work of Barry Hay and guitar work of George Kooymans, and all these guyz are multi- talented instrumentally too. This is a crew still active for over a half century now, been around since high school in the early 1960's at that, with over a couple dozen studio albums, have toured heavy and played bills with so many of the class act icon's of the rock music industry ... even moreso popular all around western Europe and at a time was gigging around over a couple hundred show's a year! Other than that ... I will let the links above handle further info.

But I suddenly chose these two songs in  particular, because of how well they done and known they are, that set that distinctive trademark of this crew's sound, and because the other night I was just fucking around creating some bass lines with one of my friends guitars while at his place, and it was these two songs that were inspiring the bass sound that I was doing, which brought this crew to mind again ... so its about time to have this crew here in this journal's honour roll society too! .... Enjoy!

USPS vs. DARRELL ISSA: His LOVE & CONCERN for America's Post Office ... The "BITCHIN, ITCHIN, FIXIN'S & FICTION Edition" (USPS PT.4)






Part 4 of the "USPS" series is just to update what is currently happening in this mess 2014. I call this the "Bitchin, Itchin, Fixin's & Fiction" edition, because you have all these profiteer icon's (more like racketeer's actually) itchin to get a hold of that $60/ $65 billion in annual business that USPS has, politician's (primarily Republican's and of course a few of the usual Democrat's that sleep with them on certain issues) bitchin up a storm over cost efficiency (most are politician's who claim to be fiscally conservative, but you can see with their spending priorities, that too is a lie) and union's, benefit's and spending of the Post Office, yet on the other hand they say to stay out of business, but their trying to destroy this self sustaining business, and every month there is something new in small increment's going on city to city, town to town, coast to coast across our nation of what their fixin (getting ready) to close, sell the building's/ properties/ real estate owned by the USPS to the next billion dollar investor, which is alot of "fixin's" ... and along with all, running their mouth's with nothing but fictional stories of the road to disaster that the Post Office is on, the same their trying to do to our Social Security or just about anything else that we have and built over decades of any worth. Hell, folks like Congressman Paul Ryan wants to even trade in your Medicare and give ya'll older citizen's a vouchure for about $7000 grand to run around state to state and shop around, haggle/ hustle to find the best deal for a surgery/ medical health care or whatever (that's brilliant, eh?, makes you wonder what planet some of these politician's live on?).

Now it may sound like I'm joking, a couple folk's around town started laughing when I told them some of these things I explain in this posting .... but this is NO JOKE, rest assured. I have talked to a few libertarians/ republicans locally for instance, just to inform them on some of the lies they been told ... some actually thought that the USPS was goverment/ tax funded and that all it was doing is wasting tax payer's money ...  no shit, this is the truth, they were suprised when I proved to them that this is also a lie, by their own Republican Party representatives or news sources ... I mean ... when your getting fucked, you ought to at least know who's fucking you, eh? As another matter of fact, what suprised these gent's that I explained this to that they were not aware of, is that USPS not only get's no fund's from tax money to keep it generating its massive business, they also stimulate so many other companies financially by contracting out business to them ... just UPS and FedEx alone get nearly $2 billion a year in business from USPS. Now folks like Congressman Issa who rant up and down and every which way about how pro- business they are and all about too much government being too "nosey" and "interfering" in business matters, regulations or such, especially large independent revenue/ profit generating businesses with a great track record such as USPS ... they cant seem to keep their Washington noses out of their business ... and why is that? ... you dont need a degree in business to figure that one out, eh?

Other's think that this is a blessing in disguise and that by dissolving this USPS is the break- up of a monopoly (USPS), a monopoly that has too much control over the market ... imagine that, these same people though wouldnt give say USPS a few billion to save them if it came down to it, but would give international investment banker's hundred's of billion's to gamble offshore and lose more, and to become a bigger liability than they already are to the global market! They will tell you enterpreneurial stories and have seminar's on how to now start up a new mom & pop mail center service franchise in your community, kind of peddling them off like them ole fried chicken/ greasy spoon franchise/ joint's, or them classes on how to flip houses/ real estate that are junk and rip someone else off in the process ... having meeting's/ presentations/ seminars for like $99.95 in 4 easy installments on your MasterCard/ Visa and they'll show you and your kids how you can make a bundle and be patriotic at the same time by going into the mailing/ parcel business ... if ya got a pick- up truck even better, they'll show you how to do the parcel transport business and save America and make a bundle as a sub- contractor. Dont misunderstand me either, I am very much pro- business, and go out of my way as a consumer to support and shop small local businesses ... but what your being told and what is being manufactured and presented as a postal crisis, etc ... is nothing more than like deceptive advertising.

Folk's across the nation are protesting these closures and sell- outs, and folk's like in Portland ("Labor Notes" linked below) I commend, for even after being arrested for just trying to set up a meeting to negotiate some of this and charged with trespassing violation/ laws ... they will actually plead "not guilty" and request "jury trials" ... way to go, take em down for the fucken count! ... and that is how many of us should react coast to coast ... going down at least fighting, and utilizing what bloody little rights we have left that havent been contaminated yet with back door legislation to suppress or neutralize a specific right. And these protests and pushes to privatize all mail/ postal/ parcel business is done not only by these ingrate iconic profiteers in America, but they are also pushing it in other countries from what I gathered such as Pakistan and even the Royal Mail Service in the UK for examples ... the same entities behind this are the same entities who are driving austerity measures globally, and ratholing all the wealth, revenues and resources of nations and trying to of course "globalize" us to all have equal pay (which is peanuts pay) across the globe and be one big happy familia, while telling us that we need to compete more, stay at each others throat's, sacrifice and give more to them while they buy out the remainders of our peoples government's representation and legislate enough new laws through their pocketed politician's to make you feel "free" constitutionally, but with restriction's of like a person under "house arrest". And believe me ... thats also alot of "fixin's"!

You have to wonder though at the same time ... will all this work any more efficient than the Post Office we have built? I doubt it, eh? All of the sudden we will have thousand's of independently owned 'do- drop- in' joint's all over America, with no oversight of these businesses, no background check's of who they employ and who is handling your mail/ parcel's from one week to the next ... will they do criminal background check's and drug testing/ screening, or check driving record's of driver's like USPS? ... how many deliveries may get missed or not delivered in a time efficient manner?, how many packages may end up missing or stolen?, how much privacy will you have a far as your billing transaction's or having mail that may be opened?, and who would you file complaints/ grievances with? ... will they give the same amount of opportunity that the USPS has given to so many Veteran's over the decades? will they give any incentive for themselves or employee's/ sub- contractor's to have any integrity/ honesty and pride in their work as the USPS? ... and how many decent paying job's will this eliminate and/ or create?, being they will eliminate all the decent payroll from USPS and replace it all with non- union, non- benefit, minimal wage employees basically with perhap's 50% less staffing ... and the "mom & pop" joints that open will probably only employ mom and pop, maybe a couple familia members, etc. .... wow! ... that's a brilliant display and plan for job creation in America, eh? ... and how "efficient" or "reformed and redesigned" does that sound/ look? Of course California Congressman  Darrell Issa talks about how this is all about his concern and love for the Post Office in the below MSNBC linked video, and he sound's so sincere the way he sayz it, he almost brought tear's of patriotism to my eyes ... but I sure as Hell know where his eyes are at or focusing on, and it hasnt a bloody damn thing to do with saving our postal service in America ... I'll leave it there ... more below ... go figure yourself.

ROY CLARK: "Malaguena", "Ghost Riders In The Sky", "12th Street Rag" & "Dueling Banjos w/ Buck Trent"


Image result for roy clark ranch chimp journal

***** ROY CLARK.ORG



This induction into this journal's music/ arts honour roll society is another that is way past due, Mr. Roy Clark, but I'm getting around to these folk's slowly but surely, so forgive me Roy! {: ) When I look at Roy Clark, I look at a master of strings kind of like I look at Jimmy Page as example, but more of a session type guitarist/ strings man ... being that this guy can do it all inside out and backwards, though not the likely guitarist you may expect looking at his background, being that when he started playing guitar, banjo and mandolin's, he was a teen and active as a baseball player and boxer, later was a airplane pilot, but decided to devote his time mostly to his pickin, and this guy sure as Hell is no stranger to any in the industry of any genre. Oddly though, he gained probably most of his popularity as a comedian and his tele/ TV appearances, but this guy is what I put in the ranks of the best of the best as far as strings ... most noted probably for classic Country & Western ... but you pretty much name it ... Roy can cover it, which is also why he could make a small fortune if he chose not even leaving home and doing just session work if he wanted, but Roy alwayz liked being out there in the scene. This guy was playing Nashville's Grand Ole Opry at like 17 too.

Roy was born in Meherrin,VA, and grew up in Staten Island (NYC area) and down in DC, as far as I know he still lives just a tad north of the Ranch here in Tulsa, OK and still kickin the pickin. But what a Hell of a guitarist and banjo player this man is! His influences cannot be categorized to any specific genre, they are all over the place. Below I pulled a few favourites to highlight for this post that displayz the variety of his worx. And Thank You Sir for all the great stuff ... you just plain kick- ass and really enjoy your work! ... Enjoy!

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


What inspires this posting is many factor's that are materializing along with all the bullshit propaganda and twisted myth's that is brewing for this 2014 mid- term election, more political olympics shit, along with all the mixed reaction's and most diverse opinion's I have gathered from folks over the last several months concerning the "Affordable Care Act" (aka ObamaCare), the media twist's, all the socialized bullshit over what some call socialized medicine/ health care, etc, etc. As I pointed out in past posting's ... "what a mess this will become" ... was not over- estimating it either. I started these series back around 5 year's ago, so it's been awhile ... and yet still, not a bloody thing has been done about actual "reform" of the spending in this, yet our President has tried to address it and bent over backward's to try to work with both polarizing parties to do so, but like everything else, they OPPOSED what he PROPOSED, time and again. I seen a short clip of Bill Maher from last weekend's "Meet the Press" in an interview saying something like ..."... the problem with ObamaCare is not being too much socialism, but too much capitalism ..." (similar wording) ... well ... Bill is one of the only ones in the mainstream making any bloody common sense and speaking honestly in this mess, cause the mainstream left or right certainly isnt ... and I agree with him (as you can see throughout this series) 110%!!

First of all in defense for our President who I see as a political scapegoat this and next election year, even though the name "ObamaCare" is catchy and cute ... this bloody damn pre- rigged plan hasnt a damn thing to do with what the President initially proposed, being a partial (20%) try- out of a public- option or what some call a single payer type plan ... of which during his campaign back in 08, over 70% of American's both left and right agreed they wanted ... they wanted something ... yet as I suspected and wrote back then, it would get corporately twisted into something else. I commend President Obama for at least bringing this into the mainstream of issues that was past due in our country, and at least bloody damn TRYING! I know that his rating's right now are lower than ever probably ... yet I even support him now more than ever, because of what everyone has twisted his agenda into, the constant attacks on this man, giving him ill advice and a plate of problems that was started all by them and the last Bush/ Cheney administration, and no human being put in a position of obstacles this President has, could even deal with it ... and NOW ... they are using him for a scapegoat for their acts! And President Obama is one of the best President's this country has ever turned out, whether you agree with most of what he does or not ... that's the reality.

I myself found at the end of 2013 by mail from my insurance provider, that my doctor will no longer be with their network because of new health care laws, and I really liked my doctor and was sad to lose him, because he motivated me to change my lifestyle and bad eating habits and really got me in shape ...  but ... I didnt bitch, moan or bellyache (BMB) about it, I already have a new doctor ... because I knew that my doctor was one that didnt accept any type of government funded patient's, such as those with Medicare/ Medicaid, he honestly told me in the past, because of the money factor ... so I understand, I think that had something to do with it, and I am with one of the largest insurance health care networx in this nation. I hear from others that they lost their doctor's as well, I heard complaint's from friend's who now tell me even though they dont have "ObamaCare" they are getting money taken out of their paycheck's to pay for it, because the companies they work for are having employees pay it now, I hear through the media that in some states like California and Florida that when you go into a restaraunte and order, your check has a new fee to help pay ObamaCare added on to it, etc.

There are other's that benefit from this who no way in Hell could afford to get covered or had pre- existing condition's ... and the reason you had to have Medicaid tossed in to pay for alot of folk's is because many folk's couldnt pay it's cost's anywayz ... you have to have assistance, otherwise you would have to penalize million's upon million's of people who dont even make a decent enough wage to afford health insurance, which can also eventually end up in court challenges in the US Supreme Courts and law suits. The number's of people enrolling are gaining, locally in Dallas/ Fort Worth for instance, county area hospital's are open 24/ 7 around the clock trying to enroll people before the end of March deadline ... and some are scared, because they figure if they dont sign up, they are going to get their income tax- refund's taken or wages garnished  or whatever ... these are the common laborer's and those making the lowest wages who worry if they can just make the rent or car payment month to month ... so of course enrollment will increase, but not for political parties to highlight as if it's because folk's are excited to get health care coverage ... some is out of fear.

I know a few guyz that are contractors and work for themselves, that have to also have large pick- ups and tool boxes on back to make a living and barely make enough to cover their bills as it is, who are constantly battling gas prices, who worry about their out of pocket, I know small business owners who worry about the costs and how they can pay for it, so I hear from many. Other's have told me that they cant really even afford their out of pocket or deductible, and just hope and pray that they dont get too sick, because it would drive them almost bankrupt with their end of the costs, etc. On the other hand I see commercial's on the tele/ TV for HealthCare.gov that have a young man about 20 or so on the basketball court, saying he just got "covered" and feel's great, with his monthly plan just costing $26 a month ... I've talked to a few young folk's around that age that told me their cost's were much higher, so it depend's I reckon on various factor's, or else the tele commercial is a rare case. The guyz that are contractor's and a few other's have told me that the "plan's" that do fit their budget's in it, have higher deductibles/ out- of- pocket than other insurance they have ever had, I myself have never yet went to the ObamaCare website or tried to sign up, because I am already insured, so I am going on what folk's have been personally telling me. And now it's all turning into another political game.

You have the Republicans bitching up a storm over this so called "ObamaCare", even though their corporate constituents are making a bundle in the billions off this, who line their political pockets and campaigns (and even Democrats getting funded by the same entities) ... you know why? ... because they frankly are even doing worse in the polls than Democrat's and havent a bloody damn thing to offer, or talk about in their campaign's except "ObamaCare, ObamaCare, ObamaCare is evil and socialized health care" etc, or to propose cutting our veterans, elderly, working people more and more, trying to privatize your Social Security so that Wall Street can gamble that as well in offshore investment's , and trying to put our postal service (USPS) in a position close to bankruptcy so they can privatize that as well for their corporate buddies, together both worth probably a couple trillion dollarz (SS & USPS) in the longhaul, they are trying to call USPS a "monopoly" ... imagine that, the same people who are making the mega bank's and energy/ oil provider's "too big to fail" as well as private monopolies. And now if polls mean anything, over 2 thirds of Americans are fed up with both parties at that. These same people bitching about ObamaCare on the right, are the same people that passed it and helped draft the plan (along with even some Democrats) with health insurance/ pharmaceutical/ medical providing corporate lobbyist's and attorneyz into having nothing to do with the President's proposed plan as it is. This is the saturation of outright bullshit that is in this nation. So ObamaCare is NOT the President's proposal or plan or frankly isnt even what most American's wanted whether their left or right, nor is government dictating or regulating it enough in my opinion, or in the best interest's and universally for ALL as far as coverage and what is provided.

My point is here ... that when we have all these additional fee's to pay with mandatory laws and rules now, even if it's a tax form ... we should get something besides a bunch of corporation's with a record of milking each other dry and their board of directors to have some oversight in this and voice of the people and policy holder's ... we dont ... therefore there isnt a bloody damn thing socialized about it ... it is nothing but a law binding corporate care  health care system ... by folks who frankly are into profit, not saving lives or the universal good health being of humanity. I am more of a socialist when it comes to issues such as universal health care ... I AM even willing to pay a increased tax to have such and realize the importance of such as other nation's have, I am also like that when it comes to education of our young ... there are certain basic need's that I leave OUT profiteering ... they already have 1001 other thing's that can be made in to profit ventures as it is. All this "talk/ media" about what we have or what this is, is just about as nauseating in our country as having to listen to damn near a half hour of bloody damn pharmaceutical or health insurance company commercial's for every damn one hour of tele/ TV programming we view, on pay- cable station's at that where we have to pay to listen to the shit! No doubt this is a tad better than what we had before as far as how these corporate entities deal with some of us, but the bottom line is ... this is NOT universal health care, socialized medicine, public option/ single payer or related ... so both political sides (especially Republicans) should stop lying and call it what it truely is, what their telling us is nothing but socialized bullshit!


Word Out ....

***** POST NOTE: For the reader who doesnt know me personally, although I vote as a mainstream Democrat, I am actually kind of liberal on some thing's and kind of conservative on some thing's, then I also have a alternative perspective on some thing's, so I kind of look for what worx and dont is all (depending on the issue), I dont necessarily embrace only one party, and dont really judge or evaluate folks according to what party they belong to, or what race/ ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual preference, etc. In other word's ... if your a Martian and have something that worx and makes sense and the scientific/ factual data/ evidence to back it up, I want to hear it, if that makes any sense. I mention this is because so many times over the year's I have met or talked to folk's, they constantly ask or wonder what I am as far as liberal or conservative? I was inspired by alot of different people as a kid growing up is part of that, and lived in some of the most liberated and most conservative areas of the country as well.

Bill Maher on NBC's 'Meet The Press'- 3/ 16/ 2014 ... Thanx to JOHN DOE ... I just want to add this short clip from 'Meet The Press' that I was talking about above ... it may seem humorous, but sadly it's the TRUTH

MALAYSIA AIR FLIGHT 370: Plight of the Mystery Night Flight of Fright ... The LOST & NOT FOUND Edition ... (ABOVE & BELOW PT.17) ... w/ "UFO" & "PING" Updates






I wanted to include this for the record as Part 17 of this series, because this thing has baffled the Hell out of me, and it did happen in Earth's atmosphere ... and what once was above, seem's now below. I have been trying to follow this as much as possible, because I could hardly believe that some kind of trace of this plane/ jet hasnt been found yet ... something ... after all, it's been over a week. I sure dont know much about aviation, but just looking at the size of this craft at roughly 209' ft in length, a 200' ft wingspan, and 60' ft tall, with all the I- pads, phones, laptops or whatever of passenger's and all the devices of tracking they have in these planes ... not a thing has been found yet? ... no floating debris either, which I thought if it did go into the ocean ... something must have surfaced by now, because it would have broke to pieces, or on land as a crash would have been some kind of explosion or whatever (?) But when I was talking about this with friend's over the last weekend, I couldnt help for my suspicion's to arise. I started wondering if it was possible that this craft was somehow deliberately stolen and maybe stashed somewhere to be used possibly later as a type of "flying bomb" armed with explosives to use against some nation at a later date (?). Hopefully they will find something soon, regardless of how large the search area is ... there is alot of folks internationally with the best equipment in the search ... I really feel sorry for the families of the passengers in all of this. The latest from CNN below ....




***** CNN: Malaysia Airlines Flight 370: Get up to speed on the latest developments



I will call this update below a "UFO" update, meaning "unidentified floating object's"

***** CNN: (friday 28 march 2014) New objects sighted as Flight 370 search shifts dramatically ... Well, so far my thought's as far as someone stealing the plane look not likely ... according to expert's it just crashed, where in Hell it crashed still is a confusing mess 3 weeks after! The search areas have changed drastically, hundred's of miles apart, several folk's say they have debris spotted, yet no one has been able to get to any of it yet, etc. Absolutely incredible ... something of actual confirmation has got to come soon, I didnt even think something so large could be so undetected or traced, but I also didnt anticipate just how huge in the ocean this search area is, and the awful weather condition's that some met with during the search ... I heard they faced actual 20' ft choppy waves on the water ... something is bound to come up soon. I dont think I ever seen so many bloody theories in my life as what CNN has been covering 24/ 7, from an endless line of expert's ... it certainly has been somewhat educational. I dont blame these families for being pissed on this ... I mean ... it seem's like every damn day you highlight that debris has been seen, but no one yet seem's to be able to confirm it or get any of it.

***** PD/ RCJ: "ABOVE & BELOW" PART'S 16 THRU 1


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

POST NOTE (sun. 30 march 2014): The way this is looking, I wouldnt be at all suprised if even a few folk's/ entities wouldnt be in any hurry to find this plane, being that even though Malaysia Air agreed to give all victim's surviving families $5000 each (WOW!! a whole $5000 dollars!), there are also numerous attorneyz talking about class action lawsuit's. So I dont know if it's wise to just take the $5000 and leave it there, eh? There are too many question's and not many answer's, no bodies yet, no wreckage yet, etc There is also talk that it could have been intentional on a pilot's part, there is also talk that lithium batteries may have been being shipped in the cargo, and lobbyist's in the past have bucked regulating this type of transport they felt was unsafe. I agree on the lithium battery cargo thing (which I never even thought of before I heard this) ... I mean ... what the Hell are they transporting cargo's like that on commercial passenger airlines for? ... well ... it must be to do with the usual about making money/ profit's (instead of using freight flight's) ... I dont think many paying customer's (passenger's) would like to be flying with cargo's like that under them any more than any hazardous material's. Well ... we will see what happen's.


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


These new updates added is the latest underwater search a month after, that I'll just call the search for the last ping to sing update, since the ping signal is about to go out after a month or so. What a difficult search this has been, I actually thought by now especially after a month that something would have came up.



***** CNN/ WORLD: (added saturday 05 april 2014) A month after fight disappearance, Malaysia remains determined to find plane



***** CNN/ WORLD: (added wednesday 09 april 2014) Malaysia Airlines Flight 370: 2 new signals in search area buoy hope
