ESTAS TONNE: "Timeless Burn Out/ feat. Reka Fodor", "The Song of the Golden Dragon" & "Cuban Dance"

***** EMAHO MAGAZINE: Music in the words of Estas Tonne ... (interview)



This posting will be another favourite of mine as far as guitar work ... to highlight some of his work and honour for the music/ arts honour roll section of this journal will be Estas Tonne. A remarkable 21st century guitarist and self described troubadour, who was trained/ schooled in classical as a child in the former Soviet Union/ Russia, moved to Israel and dropped playing for over a decade, then picked it back up, with strong enthusiasm in New York City after 9/11 ... and now is global with a strong following. As far as genre? ... I dont think there is one, nor does Estas care to be categorized into anything, his playing is also very spontaneous, "unrehearsed" even for an album (which is rare and unique), or get- together such as below in the first video with Fodor Reka ... kind of like a spiritual sort of thing, or like when you just get with friend's and just do a jam session, just letting it flow from within ... describing his music as something like an adventure and journey with a message of the new consciousness and paradigm through music. Where he tells stories without lyrics even to where he would encourage the person listening to create their own story just listening to the instrumental (more above in the Emaho Magazine link interview).

I wanted to focus this posting of Estas on the basic's as far as production and keep it raw as possible, this is a guy that worx well on the street and solo too, being just an amplified 6 string acoustic with all finger picking combining lead, rhythm and bass in one by himself, with a touch of folk, latin, gypsy, classical and rock, to where it makes like a full ensemble. But Estas can just work well in any size venue or setting large or small, so I chose a few below to enjoy. Estas Tonne is the creme of the crop though in his field, and if you love great guitar work like myself, he is a treat! And wishing a fruitful career and best to Estas to come ... so enough from me ... Enjoy!

CHRISTI CRADDICK: Reject's Denton VOTER'S Voice ... The MISINFORMATION of Peoples Perception of Technology ... The "QUAKE WAKE" Edition ... (PUBLIC PARASITES PT.9) & (GLOBAL WAR'N'ING PT.36)




Christi Craddick- Railroad Commissioner



This posting will serve for 2 series of this journal/ blog as well, the "Global War'n'ing" and "Public Parasites" series both, which is past due for this journal, and has been quickly swept under the rug ... of course this week the news is saturated with this Paris terror thing ... and folks are angry and as usual frightened, which I just got so tired of hearing I had to ignore most of the news all week, because it was so saturated and repetitive with this, and the endless talk of how we can better relations with a Muslim terror threat that the west pretty much created, and as usual, how afraid we all should stay, etc. So I chose Chairman Craddick of the Texas Railroad Commission to highlight as a local for the public parasite series, for just outright ignoring the voters request of Denton (a Dallas area suburban city) who voted a ban on fracking in the city last November, and Chairman Craddick pushing the oil/ energy companies to battle them in court. Part of what inspires this posting is the recent wave of earthquakes here in the Metroplex, most are very close to our NW Dallas neighbourhood, I for instance got hit with a couple back to back within a few hours a few dayz ago that were around 3.6 magnitude, which didnt alarm me so much since I experienced this out on the west coast several years back, but alot of folks around me were alarmed, even not knowing what it was in some cases, where I had a couple neighbours call me in the middle of the night, so alot of folks have been bringing this up to me, worried about home and infrastructure foundations, etc .... I touched on this a few years back in the Frackerjack posting's too. And this IS something that ALL business and property owners should be concerned with. But some read and video below, then of course I will add a tad to it after.

Craddick on the Denton Fracking Ban ... Thanx to THE TEXAS TRIBUNE




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



***** Thanx for your "support and trust" eh? ... who in Hell is she talking to? ... the oil/ energy companies or the voter's? ... cause the voter's got screwed on this one by the Chairman.


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


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 : )



According to Chairman Craddick, this is all a misunderstanding and misinformation of peoples perception of technologies, so Craddick is a self- proclaimed "Queen of Tech" I assume, and were all just paranoid nuts with conspiracy mind's, eh? This is all about protecting vested interest's, job's, job's and mo job's according to Ms.Christi ... she sayz McDonalds out in Midland, Texas is paying $15 an hour minimum because of this (they sure as Hell dont in Dallas, Houston or San Antonio, and the cost of living is higher here ... imagine that), the resurgence of Texas energy business, etc, etc. Ms.Christi also guarantee's us that she has a seismotologist Craig Pearson investigating this to make sure were all safe, etc. I am sure what credential's this political circle look's for when choosing some of these rent- a- scientist's to evaluate and investigate though ... Ms.Christi herself is a so called oil/ energy expert ... although I just look at her as a generational lawyer/ lobbyist politician who got pretty much campaign funded by oil and gas, riding on the coat- tail of her dad ... Tom Craddick, Speaker of Texas House of Representatives, not a scientist, okay? And since Chairman Christi talks constantly about misinformation ... many Texan's dont understand the title "Texas Railroad Commission", and assume it is what it sayz ... but it has not a bloody damn thing to do with railroad's, and hasnt in at least a decade, the name is just historically and traditionally used, it is basically a commission/ department that is unofficially owned and ran by energy/ mineral companies ONLY (even supported with Texas taxpayers money), for their purpose and profit ONLY.





Since this is ALL about the resurgence of energy business in Texas, job's, business, building a relationship between community and business or whatever, why were so many businesses and property owner's ignored in all of this, and this battle starting (and this isnt just here in Texas, but state after state across the nation) where these oil/ energies giant's want to sue us all and basically run everything how they see fit? ... and this fracking is going on everywhere, around folks homes, schools, hospitals, you name it, with cleverly worded legislation on restriction zoning. Christi talks about business, peoples voices, how we should be heard (which is a sacred Texas value historically, of the power of the voter/ people here ... actually a conservative value at that) when it comes to zoning for health, safety and property issues ... yet out of the other side of her mouth, saying that, even though people should have their voice, mineral rights take precedence over surface. So basically all this negotiating that the Chairman want's to hear is about total control by oil/ energies only ... I mean ... if you deny the people their voice and vote to where it becomes meaningless and there is only one way to negotiate with these folk's ... that dont even sound American, pro- business or Democratic ... nothing more than you would get out of the communist government of China who has ownership in probably at least 4/5th's of all business in their country. The bottom line is Chairman Craddick denied the peoples vote and rights ... plain and simple ... your voice will only be heard their way or no way.

Frankly speaking as a Texan American who is also pro- business, free market, the right of the people and power of the vote and the rest ... I dont see Chairman Craddick as nothing more than another oil/ energy political flunky, who buckles up under pressure and is on a one way street, who ignores the vast array of business and property values as well of this state. As for Denton's oil/ gas business ... it roughly is less than a percent (1%) in royalties of the city budget and about 1% of their property tax revenues. The idea that Texas is a loser without strictly oil/ gas control is more nonsense ... the Texas economy is very diverse in the 21st century in many area's besides these oil, insurance and banking investment giant's ... so the idea that without us kissing their asses 24/ 7/ 365 we will fall into eternal poverty and the poor house is more bullshit. Property values is the other issue, not just rights ... I was pointing this out for a few years here in Texas to many folks ... like the other day when I told folks that home owner property values just in a large suburb like Irving are going to devalue because of foundation issues and these quakes, it will have an impact on many business structures as well, that are not built like say ... structures in California to handle this. I personally know people that have cracks in their homes and foundations because of the recent high activity, my daughter the other day was concerned when she was at her office in central Las Colinas (Irving), when a 3.5 shook everything, wondering if the above floors could collapse of the office building and fall on them? ... and no one in the office knew what to do. While my daughter was telling me this here at home later that day and still tweeting with friends about it ... another 3.6 hit while we were in the living room.

Of course the debate and argument over this is ... does fracking have anything to do with earthquakes? ... I feel it does have an impact looking at all that is done in fracking, this sudden rise in earthquakes in an area not even known for them, I dont think is just coincidental ... I would bet my Dallas Cowboys training shorts on it, but I reckon folks like me are looked at by folks like Ms.Christi as technically illiterate, militant green and anti- business neanderthal's. And I agree with Chairman Craddick that we are misinformed ... but not the way she is thinking. I myself several years back thought the natural gas boom was a good deal, being at least it was cleaner burning, but had no idea what all it took to develop this energy source, after reading up on the process of extracting this I was amazed, and thinking of the hazards, which I should have expected right away, but the way it was being presented publicly blindsided me ... but I should have suspected something, being that I know damn well there is a flip- side to everything and nothing comes free (without a price), being you have to weigh prices and consequences to anything. To me there is MORE evidence that fracking is detrimental as well to the environment, business and everything else ... than the talk or idea that it does not do or damage anything ... people just dont jump up overnight who are both left and right and wonder what is happening?, they experience problem's, and want to make measures to resolve them, that is why they vote, to protect their business, rights, properties, etc. At least if anything out of this since Chairman Craddick is so pro- business and peoples/ Texan's voice ... she should have AT LEAST put a freeze on issuing new contracts/ permits until the scientific investigation is concluded ... not just issue more and more. Which shows that Chairman Craddick is just full of shit and worx against the majority of Texas homeowners and businesses!


That's the REALITY! ... Word Out! ....


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


***** POST NOTE: I was talking to a couple (James and his wife Emily) not long back who gave up on voting and has not much faith I guess in this nation and the governing, and Emily said something like ... "it is naive to expect the government/ politician's to tell us the truth" (similar wording) ... and I realize alot of folks may think like that, but my response to that was pretty solid on what I expect of those who lead and represent the interest's of us all. You know ... with me it's simple, I can understand a need for some thing's to remain secret from the people, especially for national security interest's, or even for politician's to maybe lie about a romantic/ sex affair or whatever simple and personal that isnt really a crime, I'm fine with that. But when it comes to truth and transparency on SERIOUS issues that make and break us financially or otherwise, or has to do with the safety of our environment, preservation of rights for ALL, I see it a little different ... and YES, including rights of investor's and even corporation's, and realize as well the importance of building strong alliances and trade relation's with foreign countries, I'm not a hard- ass. I think truth and transparency is importante ... and I for one expect more, it get's problem's resolved faster and is what we call forward progress, and bring's thing's to light that are in the dark and not understood ... I dont feel that is naive, unbalanced, unfair or asking too much.

My semantics or perception may be different on how I look at our rights and the Constitution, everybody has their way that they see thing's, even on our institutionalized religion's, I dont think we ALL believe the same regardless of how we act like we do, our mind's are INDIVIDUAL. I may in this journal for instance, look at some as treasonists, and another may say ... well if they are not acting in war against our country or supporting the enemy or whatever ... that is NOT treason. My thinking is a tad different ... I see war being declared in some wayz on our country and freedom's by NOT necessarily firepower/ weapon's, or a military by some foreign country enemy and aiding that country, but maybe strong money controlling interest's in our own country, that may contaminate our rights and liberties ... which is in my opinion also necessary for our security for us to notice. I may look at some certain corporate or banking interest's as an enemy  because of certain action's/ moves ... unless one can prove to me that an entity like such CANNOT possibly be an enemy ... I dont buy it. Absolutely these oil/ gas mineral companies should have rights, and some rights are more importante than other's. BUT the bottom line is, that doesnt mean that everyone elses rights mean nothing ... there has to be checks and balances for both the small and large investor, at least that is supposed to be what this democracy was intended to be, which gave us faith in it to begin with, and why we have a balanced judiciary system with laws. And even when someone buys a small property/ home, business, etc ... they dont do it expecting to just have folks run over it anywayz they see fit either, and even they are investor's and contributing to our economic success as a nation.

I am the same way on our gun rights ... and in these times I feel the CITIZEN'S can never have enough gun's (This is what you face when you lose gun rights and other rights start to deminish **** see last paragraph and videos), the way those running our country been doing to it, and to our Constitution/ Rights and economies ... actually legislating open corruption and legalizing criminal activities even concerning OUR MONEY and prepaid safety nets, properties, and rest that are OURS to begin with! And I realize that when the second amendment was wrote, they had maybe a different idea of what may be a well regulated militia should consist of and what it's function should be ... but one thing we can agree on ... is that it DID mean that IF there is even domestic interest's that are contaminating our government and the proper function of such, they need to be dealt with, and IT IS the citizen's responsibility of this nation, and a militia may be necessary even to maintain order, or preserve our rights, liberties and country from any possible tryrannical contamination in our system ... cause IT CAN HAPPEN ... history all around the globe and humanity shows clearly that it can. So for me just sitting around passive in my safe zone without observation and acknowledgement of what may be happening, is also naive. So in that respect, I dont live in some naive fantasy illusion ... history shows to also expect the unexpected at any time for any reason ... so we ALL have responsibilities on that end too, and if we are not ready to act at the drop of a hat, that is when we lose. To me, it is odd or even politically masochistic to some extent for ANYONE to EXPECT that we get lied to by those who are paid by our government/ revenues/ taxes to do a job and fairly represent all interest's, and who our own families protect militarily/ defensively, a job that they're all well compensated for at that, yet expect to be lied to and cheated, and to not hold anyone accountable for even incompetence. I will never understand that way of thinking and passive thought.

DONTRE HAMILTON: "Excessively BEATEN & GUNNED Down" ... America's SOCIAL COLOURS & it's Gang Mentality ... "Dressed to ARREST" ... The "Polo Shirt & Dockers Pants" Edition ... (POLICE BRUTALITY PT.20)




Dontre Hamilton (dressed to impress)




(dressed to arrest)


Part 20 of the "Police Brutality" series of this journal/ blog will be to examine the death of Dontre Hamilton, and of course another officer that basically got away for now with murder. With all due respect to Dontre's familia here, the part in the posting title being about "beaten & gunned down" may seem harsh, but the reason for this title is to show accurate wording on just what happened to Dontre, because regardless of the twist's/ spin's or fashionably acceptable media wording ... this man was NOT a criminal, and done nothing to deserve the extreme beating and multiple gun shots that were handed to him by this police officer. I would want the wording to be accurate if this were my own child or familia member ... does it enrage people? ... of course it does ... and should, it would be improper and an insult to Dontre and his familia to sugar coat this, and try to paint some twisted politically correct version of the reality of what happened. First to open this posting will be some words from Dontre's brother Nate below ... then I will add my part after.

Which photo of me would some "beat cop's" be quicker to look at and try to profile?


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

***** NOTE: Right now especially in America this is a very importante subject of concern for ALL people, including even those police officers especially that do a great job and love their job's and serving their communities, who there is NO issue with them ... but some of the higher ups in their department's that have political motivations and obligations are different, making the situation more like instigating a war on people instead of bettering relations. For police it allows them time to look over the situation that they are in and push themselves for reform's in their departments and improve their image, from those who disgrace and misrepresent their shield's. For the citizen's it's also importante to attack this on every level you can, WHILE we can, since so much of our rights are being attacked and manipulated by the big money powers, even taking advantage and using our political representation, while holding their political career's as hostage. But this sort of thing has a slippery slope to it, especially with the added security we need in our cities these dayz due to international and domestic problem's such as retaliatory terror attacks, or other thing's that danger all, so making sure we take care of home and ourselves is importante as job#1 ... this is one of those thing's that will have an impact on all of us, not just poor or people of colour, it will grow and escalate further and further. I encourage any reader of this particular series, to at least run through this entire series, to view some of what is happening in our country ... those who know me and I talk with daily here locally in Texas and others, I am able to even get more detailed and personal on related subject's, than I can on this public blog/ journal on what is needed to get done, and want to hear input and suggestion's from other's on what is needed to do to improve the condition, because there is alwayz need for improvement.

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



Reading up on this case and looking at the autopsy report linked above, there is no way you can say that this officer (Christopher Manney) simply reacted in self- defense, as a matter of fact ... that is why the police dismissed/ fired him, they said of course that it was simply against their policy, calling it an interdepartmental charge of violating "core values" (Hmmmm ... imagine that) ... but it is a Hell of alot more than just police or policy codes, so that press release from police official's is outright bullshit and not good enough. Plus they as alwayz want to exempt themselves from any responsibility/ liability/ accountability, so when (and ONLY when) it comes down to outright MURDER of an innocent citizen ... they start engineering wayz and words to distance themselves. Simply firing this officer does not a goddamn thing, but let the officer go back into some community and get hired by probably some fly- by- night security service and get a job as perhaps "captain" or similar, strictly because of his so called law enforcement experience.

Looking at the number of hits to the victim (Dontre) and especially where those hits were directed, just from the officer using his night- stick alone, shows that this officer was focused on killing this man ... being orchestrated and premeditated, then on top of that, if those multiple blunt hits to the skull didnt kill him for sure, he shot Dontre 14x times at close range in all critical areas top of the body, and even after he is down, more in his back ... no way can you survive this ... it was more than excessive ... it was extreme hatred/ anger, or more like a revenge killing/ execution (without even any revenge motive) ... so it is far from not standard procedure, but any procedure ... this was just plain slaughter ... nothing else, with laws designed and inadequate police training to make it all legal. And listening to this officers radio call in after he slaughtered this man, calling for help because he got hit with his own stick, is cowardly and disgusting at least ... and a display of emotional and mental illness. After you beat this man to a pulp, there is not even any need to shoot him as well.


***** FBI- Civil Rights: Color of Law Abuses


They will say that Dontre grabbed the officers night stick and hit him ... looking closely at this, it was most likely because this officer was so radical and first beat this man, that Dontre out of just fear, had to grab the stick from the officer, knowing what this officer was going to do to him. If Dontre would have hurt or killed this officer defending himself against this excessive brutality, Dontre would be a different news story and made to look like a bad guy in the media, even though it would have been self- defense in my opinion and justified by the common law of nature, and possibly by some written laws from what I been reading ... Example-- "Constitution Society: Your Right of Defense Against Unlawful Arrest". Bottom line, Dontre committed no criminal offense or was a threat to anyone. With my experiences in these matters, I would even question if the so called "hit" on the officer was even intentional or even a hit, as I point out what qualifies as assault on an officer in this series also, meaning that just putting up your hand to cover your head from a hit/ blow is technically assault, or grabbing the night stick while in swing to your skull to prevent it from hitting you is also technically assault. The only cause for this officer to shake him down was a report from people at a Starbucks coffee shop, that there was a "black man sleeping on a park bench", as a matter of fact ... other officer's that previously answered this so called complaint, checked him (Dontre) and walked away. According to report's, Dontre even had an apartment where he lived alone, according to autopsy/ toxicology results ... no drugs or alcohol in his system ... why would he be sleeping on a park bench? ... maybe he wasnt even sleeping ... maybe he was depressed mentally or other reason's ... where is the public threat?





Dressed to impress ... most acceptable in society


Related image

Dressed to arrest ... least acceptable in society


The familia of Dontre should be outraged, the American people should be outraged as our leaders try to drive our standards of living and wages into the dirt, then driving citizen's into likely victim's of this type profiling, prejudice and hatred. To try to make us think that this is correct and fashionable to attack citizen's based on this. They think that people will just pipe down and wear out, or will just feel sorry for these officers with enough media coverage ... but it wont work, and wont happen, as it never did in the past and wont happen any time soon. Because it's not just wrong by any written standards or laws ... but by nature, so to resist and fight this is in order, and to fight/ battle this is Democratic and what this Republic is about and dies for if necessary, and this familia of Dontre and every other victim and citizen's should go at this until there is change in legislation that allow's this to happen.



Oakland/ Bay Area




Milwaukee


Dontre's crime was nothing more than what they term now as a "quality of life" crime, and this is coast to coast in America with many death's ... being dressed basically to arrest is the "probable cause" here or "reasonable suspicion", he didnt dress in this case to impress, or to look socially acceptable to probably the folks at Starbucks coffee while they may be pumped up with caffeine wearing their polo shirts and dockers, and when your a person of colour, that even add's to the paranoia ... some of these folks are the same kind of folks that would cross the street if they see you, just to avoid any close contact with you, because of your colour or dress/ attire. This is exactly the social colours (like gang colours) and gang mentality that we have more of in 2015 America with its love of corporate greed, correctness, and neo type communism and fascism is all. Just an updated version of what we had in the past and repackaged into more pop- culture acceptance and force- fed by legislation through politicians and their financial supporter's, who twist our thinking with their word's through media.


Word Out ....

POPE FRANCIS: "Emissions Mission & The 15 Diseases of The Roman Curia" ... A CALL for ALL to Download Your THINKING APP to Upload Your BRAIN CAP ... (GLOBAL WAR'N'ING PT.35) & (PUBLIC PATRIOT'S PT.36)






This posting will be to highlight some of the work and efforts of Pope Francis who has been alot more action than talk in his little time as Pope, and will serve 2 series of this journal ... "Public Patriots" & "Global War'n'ing" both. First some newsread below from Democracy Now and The Washington Post, then I will add my part and why I chose to put him in these series of this journal, and the importance of his work.

***** NOTE: I tend to call these mega religions "institutionalized" more often than "organized" because they seem on the other hand to keep the human mind "enslaved" to a degree, or are at least designed to do so. In other word's, I figure if a person truly believes in a higher power of the universe that created them in it's own likeness, given our natural given instinct's and looking at the universe and nature as "creation", and knowing that the "mind" like the "universe" is alwayz "expanding", it would make common sense that it is also our "job/ responsibility" to liberate and expand our own mind's, not to keep them institutionalized and simply bowing to some other human who claim's that God put them in charge of everything, and you are basically "their" trained dog. The smaller offshoot's of these belief's, such as what we may look at as "radical extreme" branches, or what I call "fundamoralist's", I just simply look at as "cult's", similar systematic set up, but personalized to a specific hatred, cause or political agenda.

One of the most "twisted" thing's I have heard out of these mainstream religions, is the denial/ disbelief of "evolution" and even science ... I dont understand how one can believe in a higher power/ creator, yet DENY the very creation and nature with evidence of such through scientific fact that you say you believe that God created. I mean ... if you believe in a "creator of higher power" YOU MUST believe in the evolution of life process and nature as well, being ALL part of the that same creation you claim to believe, eh?

Thomas Hudson Pickering aka "Ranch Chimp", "Commie Tommie" & "Skool" (short for old school) to kid's locally. New Years Greetings 2015! Just because it looks sunny and beautiful in this picture here in Dallas, dont let it fool you ... it was like in the lower 20's, with a strong wind chill in the teens, so it was downright cold, I was wearing a long sleeve t-shirt, a long sleeve sweatshirt and the jacket.



Pope Francis' work is so importante, because anytime you can get a major figure in a position like him to bring to light problem's that we have and at least force them to get addressed in some manner is a positive for everyone. I myself am not religious and actually loathe these mega institutionalized religion's as you can see throughout this journal ...  but the reality is, is that this religion has well over a billion people worldwide, and million's of people that depend on words of advice from this leader, millions love him, and cherish every word they can from him ... so what he has to say is not only a wakeup, but enlightening, and food for thought. In todayz society of technological dependency, you also have many that almost need to download some type of app to their smart phones it seems, just to think, which in turn in a way enables them to upload their brains/ thinking unfortunately. So much out of religion's leader's you hear the term "God's creation" ... yet, you see almost a cult mentality of destroying that "creation" that they casually and pretentiously claim they have respect for, and many religious folks and leaders spend so much time trying to make excuses as to why they feel a need to destroy our natural environment like a relentless pursuit of some sort to level's of outright insanity and poor judgement. In this case the Pope is trying to at least do something about our emissions as one of his missions. Many today that are so called "leaders" or "elite" whether in the church, government/ politics, finance (the "3 Entities" of world powers), have spent decades with endless nitpicking, bitch fights, and tossing our global warming issues on the back burner, with one runaround after another, and not much of a damn thing getting done, and hardly anyone in these position's want to say what need's to be said.







The Christmas address he gave to the governing council (Curia) of the Vatican was really a good slap in the face and long past due, as far as the 15 diseases that they are plagued with. I am sure several of these deadbeats today only wish that this Pope would have never been elected. Do some take it as an INSULT? ... they should, and they deserve it! While they were sitting on their royal asses expecting more of the centuries old blessings and ass- kissing from the Pope, they got a swift kick in the ass as a nice lil Christmas gift. Many of these folks in this order look lifeless and half dead, as if you would need a damn crane to get them off their asses, not to mention do any damn thing worthwhile. This institution has been largely a worthless disgrace to most of what it claim's to stand for, where you have over a billion folks worldwide who been financially and spiritually feeding it and accepting it's incompetence as far as addressing even many of the social need's of todayz society and what's needed as far as leadership, and all this pressure of recent from the Pope on many issues and criticism could not have come at a better time, when we are saturated worldwide with issues that need atencion. The Vatican is a very influential power and well soaked in world politics and money, and has shown to not live up to a damn thing that is required of it ... to those who support it. So someone needs to crack the bloody damn whip ... those Holy men in this order that feel he is too harsh ... look at it as a type of Bible lesson such as when the Nazarene Jesus figure cracked the whip on the money changers in their Holy surroundings.

Of course even though millions love the Pope and really appreciate his work and message, you also have many that have done nothing but criticize the man, such as these evangelical fundamoralist type cults like here, that frankly dont do a damn thing positive, but try to sell tabloid type media horror stories, those who look for devil's under every rock, preach constant doom and gloom, call folks like the Pope the usual ... like being a Marxist, Commie or anti- Christ, etc, etc. I mean after all ... isnt this Pope trying to at least do what you say you admire so much about your Messiah/ Christ figure Jesus? ... mingling with average folks as well as those higher up's trying to enlighten, being more socially acceptable even to those in need, those who may be in the lower classes or even socializing with prostitutes or those condemned by the government and church ... a church/ synagogue, that even Jesus according to writing's and Gospel loathed and its institution with passion ... the same type clergy that ordered the government of Rome to execute him. Those religious fundamoralists like above or within the inner order of the Vatican are exactly the same types that would persecute and execute Jesus again if he was around in the 21st century ... in fact ... he would be labeled in these times as an "anti- Christ" or "Devil" by the mainstream churches/ religions. Why? ... because religions are more or less made to create a sort of political ideology of the ruling class and to conquer and enslave, Jesus as a man, would have been appalled to see what they have done to his name, and against this whole bloody corrupt institutionalized religious system.
