THE VENUS PROJECT/ JACQUE FRESCO: Freeing Ourselves from Force- Fed Feeble- Minded Fear & Failure ... "NEVERMIND, IT CAN'T BE DONE" ... The "New World ON Order" Edition ... (PUBLIC PATRIOTS PT.47)- (GLOBAL WAR'N'ING PT.44)- (The AWAKENING PT.45)

This posting will serve the "Public Patriots", "Global War'n'ing", and "The Awakening" series of this journal/ blog ... and to highlight the ideas of Jacque Fresco, his partner Roxanne, and The Venus Project, which I consider as public type patriots, in this case, those who inspire change and alternative ideas to our youth most importantly, who are the future. This has to do with not only social issues, but environmental issues, the future, and the idea of a "resource based economy". But, this is an organization that receives quite a bit of criticism for all they talk about, many call it a cult, and destructive to human progress and capitalism, part of the "new world order" to have us all slaves to robots, computers and artificial intelligence, etc ... one thing for sure though, is we need to put some type of new world direction on "order", eh? Of course, there are plenty of voices yelling in the distance ... "Forget it, nevermind ... it can't be done", most folks that say so much cant be done, also have a cult mentality and agenda, political or otherwise of their own though, with no vision out of the box, and will only keep you in fear, thinking the same way, and running the squirrel cage of their mental prison. I was driving down the freeway here in Dallas friday morning, trying to catch the news on the radio, and it was basically the big news that Thanxgiving Day retail early Black Friday sales were at I believe $1.3 billion, market/ investor confidence is up, because Trump will be President, and folks investing are excited about the possibility of heavy deregulation, etc. The part on the news that really made me bust out laughing, was when they started talking about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump Black Friday merchandise sales, I mean, I actually thought it was a joke ... but looked it up online, and found that it is real ... I was trying to picture shoppers excited, trying to buy and fight over getting their Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump merchandise for the holidayz {:-) ... but, this is the level/ mindset we are at, as sad as it is, it still alwayz makes me laugh. Ole Jacque is a Great Depression era kid out of Bensonhurst/ Brooklyn, left home at 14/ 15, left school, didnt like all the institutionalized education and programming, etc ... I mean, I can understand, I left home and school at 14 myself, and felt similar ... so he didnt get the credits as far as a formal type education, basically educating himself in what interested him, and just enjoying life, and this man will be 101 years old this coming march, so he had a decent life. But what he sayz, sure can get alot of peoples panties in a bind, and even online bitch fights can break out, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {:-) But, what is importante here is the ideas, concepts and vision, so at least give the gentleman a listen, it cant hurt you anymore than the shit that is shoved down your throats and drilled into your brains by this current vermin that runs and rules our societies of today, a couple videos below, a couple links above ... and after the first 2 videos below, I want to add some thoughts and opinion.

If this is difficult to envision or even understand to folks, that is understandable and normal, many of us look at this as science fiction, impractical, nonsense, but why? Because, we all live in the here and now ... we are controlled and force- fed various cultures, politics and beliefs, we are forced to compete and step on each other to please those at the top, you cant make a decent honest living unless you get educated and credited by the approved college/ university institutions, which we have to do, to at least make sure that you know what you are doing in your profession, and now these dayz, have an arm and a leg to pay or be in debt for years to do what you are offered in society if you want to get ahead and pursue a career. All we know is destruction and having to use violence and war to achieve anything from rights to social approval and acceptability to domination, we still even eat meat, which isnt necessary, I myself am just as much a part of it, I even hunted animals and ate what I hunted, this is the way of survival that we known for years, so of course this can be difficult to understand how could something like this work. What in Hell would we do without our feeble minded fears and failures?, or having to please and compete for the benefit and approval of corporations/ financial institutions, politicians and religions/ preachers (what I call the "3- entities" in this journal/ blog), all who fill us with fear of life without them ... is it possible we could still exist? ... I myself have no doubt we could, and even do a Hell of alot better without them and their current system. We fear the wrong things actually, the other day when Stephen Hawkin announced that we have only 1000 years left before extinction of human life, and that robots, machines and artificial intelligence could be of harm to us, etc (Business Insider) ... many folks went into panic mode, it is only natural to maybe have some fear of things like AI, automation/ robotics etc ... ONLY because of those at the top, who control its progress, development and usage, which are the "3- entities". I feel confident that our longevity, health and prosperity, along with the ability to improve the Earth , environment, agriculture, and even migrating to other planets such as Mars, will be greatly improved by these things that many seem to fear, science and technology to me are what will help us so much. I envision just artificial intelligence alone, as taking us into a future of solving so many issues in a few decades that would have otherwise took us centuries or even thousands of years to do, and robotics and automation, as a sort of "man's best friend" actually.

One of the things that I point out so many times throughout this journal, is those who really are in fear more than us ... are the 3- entities that control us, this is why I say that they constantly try to become bigger, bigger and bigger, with bigger empires and monopolies, to make us have to depend on them, so this is why they rathole all the wealth and resources, and take control of all our markets, inventions, technologies, and everything else, so they can continue to reign in power ... because they know that with this future to come, they will be needed about as much as tits on a bull, and truly be more worthless and useless than they are now. As far as their political puppets and religious leaders who they finance well with our hard earned money at that, to keep us in line ... they are about the same worth for most of them, selling their cultural, political, and social snake oil through fear and propaganda. Other fear that were conditioned to believe, is that if we werent slaving for this system and "artificial elite", that we would all become a lazy society sitting on our asses and doing nothing ... dont kid yourself, people will have all kinds of things to do and much more time with less stress to do things, explore, travel, utilize new technologies and science to create, healthy exercising, fun times in the arts, or whatever else they want to do, it is NOT our nature as a species, to just do nothing ... it will spur creativity and innovation as well at a faster rate. It is also good to see now that so many folks are looking into the idea of "universal basic income", and recognizing the challenges that we face, this is also why birth control education is also needed (my views on population moderation and reduction), the more we multiply, the merrier those who are making only a buck/ dollar off of us, and forcing their utopian vision on us, instead of our vision of progress and prosperity on them. I actually believe that we can have a future after this storm of transition we are in now, with less misery and much less population, and a Hell of alot more prosperity and progress on every level. But, enough out of my mouth/ mind ... and I wanted to close with a lecture below that Jacque gave to some folks, much of what we think about, and question, but remain too silent on, out of social or political fear, and just common sense thoughts from the man ... some of it may seem harsh, but reality is harsh ... the listen is well worth it.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING & BLACK FRIDAY 2016: Family, Fun, Feast & Folly ... at the Most WONDERFUL TIME of the YEAR in America!


Image result for thanksgiving satire




Well, It's that most wonderful time of the year again, Thanxgiving and the Black Friday shopping time ... a time of family, love, sharing, and giving Thanx for all we have, and all the fun that we have in America at this time. But, Thank "God/ $$$$" for Black Friday as well, in order to give our all credit economy a boost, where would we be without it ... especially all the money through welfare and subsidies we have to pay our beloved bankers, corporations and oligarchs ... if not for Black Friday, we hardly wouldnt have a damn thing left. We also see in the tradition, that we still to this day try to cheat and rip- off the Native American Indian people who found this land ... today we have evolved in how these minerals/ resources/ oil hoarders treat them, those Native Americans who try to protect their land and waters now, they sic dogs on them, imprison them, and spray them down with cold water hosing in below freezing temperatures (PBS/ KERA) ... which could have been avoided by simply rerouting the pipeline, but the company/ investors are obviously too cheap to ... but, in the holiday spirit, Happy Thanxgiving to you slimy mother fuckers too {:-) As for myself, I'm looking forward to the NFL games tomorrow, which will be a great lineup of games, starting the day when the 6- 4 Detroit Lions host the 6- 4 Minnesota Vikings, then the 9- 1 Dallas Cowboys (best team in the NFL) will host 6- 3- 1 Washington Redskins, the last game will be the 5- 5 Indianapolis Colts will host the 5- 5 Pittsburgh Steelers, all excellent match- ups! I searched for some video and cartoon, that best depicts this wonderful time of the year, and Thanks to all these people for their work, with some videos from video maker Joe Kufel, the crew at SNL, comedian Dnt Jealous Me/ Tolu Ogunmefun, and singer/ songwriter Linzey Rae of the Denver based band "The Anchor".  Other than that, to the viewer of this posting, have a Happy Thanxgiving, and make the best of it!

THE MARS VOLTA: "Wax Simulacra", "Goliath", "The Widow" & "Roulette Dares (The Haunt Of) "




Image result for the mars volta band grammy award

(left to right) Pablo Hinojos- Gonzalez, Thomas Pridgen, Marcel Rodriquez- Lopez, Omar Rodriquez- Lopez, Cedric Bixler- Zavala, Isaiah "Ikey" Owens, Juan Alderate & Adrian Terrazas- Gonzales ... 51st Annual Grammy Awards, Staples Center, Los Angeles 02/ 08/ 09




This entry into the music/ arts honour roll society of this journal/ blog is a crew that is also past due for this journal, to honour and showcase some of the work of The Mars Volta project out of El Paso, Texas ... considered as a progressive rock crew I guess as far as genre labeling, this is just an outstanding crew, and I also have to credit the genius of Omar and Cedric for the direction of this project ... and as far as vocals are concerned for me ... Cedric is the cream of the crop, and Omar is an outstanding guitarist and producer, just the chemistry of everyone in this Mars Volta crew, was a great recipe and composition. The inspiration of this crew comes from a long list of everything from classic hard rock to industrial and experimental. This project came out of a crew originally called "At the Drive- In" (1993- 2001), then formed Mars Volta, The Mars Volta (2001- 2012) also disbanded and members going into other projects, so they have a long history ... and I would like to see this crew get back together hopefully and do some new work, which they very well may some time, so dont rule that out (keyboardist Ikey Owens passed away) ... having a strong following of support and fans worldwide of The Mars Volta project/ work still. There was some reuniting done in 2014, but to focus on yet another project ... but they have quite a history, yep, including winning a Grammy, and as The Mars Volta years, managed to put out 6 albums ... but I will let the Wikipedia link above handle most of that. I wanted to showcase mostly live work here, because they are really a great live performance crew too, but I also selected a video of theirs to include called "The Widow" ... and Thanx to them for the great pieces of work ... Enjoy!

DALLAS COWBOYS QUARTERBACK CONTROVERSY IS OVER: Tony's LONG PASS to Dak ... Passing the Torch to the Young Blood ... & The 2016 COWBOYS OFFENSIVE WEAPONS




Tony Romo Press Conference ... Thanx to MARK HOLMES



Image result for tony romo photo  Image result for dak prescott

Tony Romo                                                Dak Prescott



I wanted to open with the top video from Tony, he deserves it, and I know it took alot for him to come out with this, it was emotional for him ... and I give him so much credit for what he done here and all he has contributed to the Cowboys over the last 13 years ... Tony is throwing that long pass with a torch to Dak! Anyone who knows me around Dallas, knows how this been chewing at me now for a couple years, as far as us getting and grooming a new young quarterback ... earlier this year I was so excited of the possibility of getting Johnny Manziel or RG3 ... I was desperate hoping that the Cowboys would get someone for that position though, because of how critical it is to get a leader to lead and motivate a team ... dont get me wrong, I love Tony, but I seen all these injuries and surgeries, as well as now being 36 years old, and I was very concerned. Here comes Dak out of the blue ... I never even followed this guyz college career, he was not a hot pick, and we actually took this kid in as a 4th round draft pick ... how f'n lucky can we get?! What a performer this guy has been ... geeez ... he's the talk of the entire NFL today, Tony got injured again in the early pre- season, more surgery, more recovery time needed, and all we had was this rookie kid to connect with our veteran and new players ... Dak came in and kicked ass, and the team has really connected with him, he has sparked new life into our team, and works well with everyone. But it isnt just Dak, Cowboys right now going into week 11, have the best record in the NFL with 8 wins, 1 loss ... and that is "8 straight", which is difficult ... we have the best offense, and a tight defense too, and weapons on the offense right now, new blood and veteran weapons like Ezekiel Elliot, Cole Beasley, Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams, Jason Witten, just to name a few of this elite line- up. With a crew like this, I believe we have SuperBowl material, and can get in there again over the next few years.

I know it has been hard on owner/ manager Jerry Jones too, having 2 starters to have to choose (although Jerry described it as a good problem to have), for weeks having to look at his main quarterback sitting on the sidelines trying to recover from another surgery/ injury, who signed a $108 million dollar 6 year contract, $55 million guaranteed, $25 million signing bonus, and Tony has been like an adopted son to Jerry. Now it's time to step up after this season, and for Jerry to negotiate a new contract for Dak, who is proving himself ... like Tony said, football is a meritocracy (would be great if our politics were like that) ... he came in with lower starting 4th round pick rookie pay, and is proving himself, and the team loves him, the chemistry is right. Tony will be a backup quarterback now, Dak is the new starter, so Tony will have his back too, and have plenty to teach Dak as he leads the boys. The great thing is, Dak is 23 years old, yet very mature as far as leadership qualities, he has alot of good years ahead, his performance has been outstanding, even in college, he has an unbelievable passing arm and game, he moves well, can run and scramble well too. That is why it is no#1 importance, to jump his pay asap, you dont want to lose this kid ... I know there are NFL teams as I write this coast to coast, kicking themselves in the ass for not grabbing this kid in the draft! ... and it's been Dak's dream since childhood to become a Cowboy. Congratulations Dak ... we love you here in Dallas ... and Jerry will take care of you salary- wise, the weather's good and no state income tax, stick around awhile! I wont shut up, so below some video and newread ... I also wanted to post this last game highlights from last sunday up in Pittsburgh, which is the game that finalized it for Dak, and put us in first place in the NFL ... this game was awesome, it went back and forth, this is what great football is all about, and Pittsburgh really gave us a tough fight to the last 10 seconds of the game, I couldnt even sit I was so pumped up on this game!

2016 U.S. ELECTIONS ... REFLECTIONS & PROJECTIONS: Dealing with Disappointment in a Disintegrating Democracy ... The "Politically Depressed" Edition ... (POLITICAL CORRUPTION & ETHICS PT.11)




After Election Losses, Democrats Need To Clean House ... Thanx to THE RING OF FIRE


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



Thomas Hudson Pickering/ Ranch Chimp



This posting will serve as Part 11 of the "Political Corruption & Ethics" series of this journal/ blog, which I will also explain why I chose to include it in this series as well. I wanted to open with the top video from Farron Cousins, because Farron is just straight common sense and reality, with no bullshit ... let's face it, even though the Democrats/ Clinton got the popular vote, you rank low as far as performance and strategies, and are losers as a result ... you can blame it on the Russians, the polls, the right wing fundamoralists, electoral vote, Martians, the Devil, the weather, etc. ... but it is what it is, and ya'll are what ya'll are in the establishment and DNC, eh? I never planned on doing a post elections follow up on this blog, because I was disappointed in the results (not angry at all though), I mean ... I'm an independent who supports and votes Democrat is why (a Bernie Sanders supporter in the primaries), so I felt no victory or joy, this is just a spontaneous reaction because of the peoples response, that dont want Trump. I wasnt even watching the elections as it was going down election night ... why? ... because I just assumed from all the media, polling, pundits, big money spent, etc ... that this would be a slam dunk win for Clinton and Democratic Party ... so I was totally wrong in my assumption. At the same time, despite my disappointment, this also shows that there is still a certain amount of actual democracy left in this country, not just the power of multimillionaires and billionaires ... which is a positive. I received a text message from my daughter election night, probably around 10:30pm (CST) saying "... Hey dad, you watching this election? ... it's crazy ...", so I got to a tele and turned on PBS network, and I believe that it had Trump at about 240+ or so, and Clinton about 215, with the news folks covering, looking worried, and coming up with all these twisted scenarios and strategies on ... this state may do this, or swing this way, or asking for recounts, and other nonsense ... I simply just threw my hands up and said "... that's it ... fuck it, the Republicans got this ...", before the elections even got finished, turned off the tele, texted my daughter back and told her the Republicans got this, and went to bed. My wife was in the bedroom sound asleep from a long busy day, and I sure as Hell was not going to wake her and tell her, because I know when she finds out, she will be sad or whatever ... being she was so excited to see a woman/ Clinton get the nomination, and she despises Trump, she told me a few months back when we were watching the news on the tele ... "I dont care if she lies, they all lie, I want a woman President! ...".



Abby Martin: A New Resistance Born Out of Trump ... Thanx to teleSUR English




As far as Trump being our new President come 2017 ... it was not so much Trump as President that concerned me, as much as it was the Republicans having such a stronghold in the Congress and Senate, because most people will vote straight party, and not only on Capitalism Hill (Capitol Hill), but this growing strength state to state, I mean, the Democratic Party is the only strong enough party to challenge them, the Green or Libertarian Party cant. The talk about Trump being evil, scary, reincarnation of Hitler, wanting to put women in shackles/ bondage and rape them, or shit on people of colour and muslims, etc ... he does business with anyone, whether they're gay, muslim, christian, latino, women or whatever, he's a fast thinking hustler out of NYC ... not a politician giving speeches for 100's of thousands of dollars a pop, expecting corporations to pay his way, eh? I had no evidence to believe that he is the monster he's being painted as ... I need evidence, not just million dollar election propaganda via media, and bad mouthing from Trump to think that, which is about as useless to me as a preacher on sunday and religious garbage. Trump had to sell a product (himself), and is a good salesman and hustler, he was going for the crowd of people that were sick and bloody tired of political establishment insiders ... he was saying the shit that many people are saying among themselves, the concerns of Americans, like Bernie Sanders did ... while Clinton was looking more like a smiling robot of political establishment correctness, who also carried a rep with alot of baggage, as well as her husband. I think that Trump is one that "can" be moderate as well, he is a negotiator when it comes to the business game, and knows how to negotiate, but that is up to him, and how he deals with Washington and his party. The concern I have is the Republican Party and establishment, because he doesnt know Washington, and will depend on them for alot to learn from and for advice ... and I know how persuasive people like Paul Ryan can be, Ryan can politically hustle the shirt off your back, and you wont see him coming, with his cute all American puppy dog look and sales pitch ... Ryan is a real leader type, then you have this Mike Pence at his side, more bad news. The Republicans didnt even want him, but they are fair to their base voters, and dont use superdelegates (used in the Democratic Party) to override their peoples choice, they wanted to distance themselves from him, many didnt want to endorse him, or be affiliated with him, like Democrats didnt want Sanders, but they stuck with Trump, and now they should be kissing his ass, because the Republicans were in the shitter too, if it wasnt for Trump, same as Democrats would be in the shitter even worse, if it wasnt for Sanders, because Sanders is what fired up the Democrats this year, the only other thing you had going for ya'll, was a female candidate, without Bernie jumping in, ya'll wouldnt have known whether to laugh, cry, take a shit, or wind your watch by election day ... both these parties establishment are pretty much worthless leftovers, and about as much needed as tits on a bull.

Many people are in the streets coast to coast daily, protesting against this new President and the elections results, and for good reason too ... they feel let down, so it is healthy in a therapeutic way, mentally and physically to have this ritual of retaliation, as far as any anger or violence is concerned, it comes with the territory, and is the roots of what this democracy has been and should be about, while exercising our Constitutional rights. The people have been let down tremendously year after year, decade after decade, by this conservative, neocon, and neoliberalism vermin, that has contaminated democracy and our political structure ... a clear result of the money in politics, which led to the legalized/ legislated bribery and political corruption, a deterioration of balanced ethics, and the disintegration of our democracy. But this resistance is the only way to deal with these people, and by means other than just holding up a sign, praying/ hoping while lovingly holding hands, etc ... you deal with them by raising Hell and force as well, closing down freeways, disrupting business, etc, etc ... as far as those politicians in their bubbles in Washington like President Obama, Secretary Clinton and others saying "we want a peaceful transition" (which they have to say, because they know protests will break out) ... what the people want and what ya'll want in Washington is 2 different things, eh? ... ya'll speak for yourselves, you sure as Hell dont speak for these frustrated people. President elect Trump has been quick as well to talk since the election, he said he definitely wants to select pro- life nominees for the Supreme Court, but I also think he would consider moderates for the high court, just because one is personally pro- life, doesnt necessarily mean, they will try to overturn the right for a woman to choose, making balanced acceptable law and ones personal choice while on the bench, is 2 different things and jobs ... when you go to work, you leave your personal life at home, we all know, including those in Washington, how importante abortion rights are, as much as marriage equality, whether we agree with it or not. Trump said now, after the elections, that he is open to renegotiating a wall vs. fencing as well on the Mexico/ U.S. border, and only looking to deport illegal aliens with criminal backgrounds (which is a little tricky, because any low level offense these dayz can give you a criminal record), he is also in support of some of ObamaCare/ ACA, he is calling for term limits in Congress, he is saying that the money is contaminating politics and he wants it out and limited, not deporting muslims, but vetting some immigrants more closely, cut this outrageous war spending, which he says now, that the amount we spent, could have rebuilt our own infrastructure 2 times over, he now says that he will keep only a dollar of his paycheck as President, and give the rest to charity (watch Trump on that one though, he's a hustler, and if he can write it off on taxes, he will ... heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {:-), he wants to "negotiate" better deals on healthcare costs, and our loose foreign spending (something Congress never even attempted as a whole), opposes TPP, and wants to renegotiate past trade agreements such as NAFTA (and Canada and Mexico said they're open to renegotiation), so it wouldnt surprise me if he is not as hardcore and evil as he's being painted as is my point.

If he is all for what he has been saying publicly since he won the election, his opposition may be from his own party, without even need for Democrats to oppose him, because what he is saying now, many establishment Republicans are not going to go along with easily ... only time will tell, what Trump will actually do, and really how strong he will be at standing firm ... Obama for instance didnt stand firm enough against Congress who relentlessly obstructed everything he proposed. And just Supreme Court nominees is not the only issue, there will be over 100 additional judicial nominations for Trump to make to lower federal courts (NPR/ KERA), so that is a very big issue. If Trump is anything like what he is looking like right now, I think the Republicans will be first to challenge him. I also want to point out though, before the elections he said he wanted to cut up to 80% of all regulations and oversight, which is a huge negative for consumers, business, health and safety, and the environment, and he also in pre- election, refused to acknowledge the scientific evidence, that global warming is human caused (at least drastically by a hundred fold accelerated in my view by human activity, despite the scientific/ paleoclimatologist evidence of the Earth's warming and cooling trends), this is also a huge negative, science and common sense sayz otherwise ... our activity over the last century, can no way NOT effect the air, water and land. The other problem is, because of his lack of political experience, the Republicans are going to pressure him big time on what to do and who to pick for advisers and cabinet choices, Stephen Bannon for example was a lousy pick/ appointment to be chief strategist and senior counselor to Trump ... he already has several Wall Street types in view, and he wants them to deal with Wall Street, because as a businessman, he looks at those types as the kind that actually know Wall Street ... the trick is ... trying to get them to change things ... this is something that Clinton would be good at, since she was in bed with Wall Street and knows how to politically move them, but business wise Trump is a good hustler, so if he's sincere about wanting to tighten them up, he will deal with his advisers as a strong businessman, and stand for what he wants to accomplish too, like he does in the non- political world ... otherwise they will fuck you big time Mr.Trump, especially Wall Street, in a New York minute, and you know it ... so you better be as damn strong as you say you are. As far as the Democrats opposing him, that is their job, I just hope that what the Democrats do oppose, will be the peoples and nation's needs, not just the party's and corporations needs, there are already enough Republicans to do that. I agree with Farron at the top video, where he sayz that the DNC needs to be flushed out, cleaned up, etc ... and no, choosing Donna Brazile to lead the party is not wise, or even Howard Dean, you dont get rid of an asshole in last minute desperation like Debbie Wasserman Schultz ... and replace them with more assholes and incompetent losers, unless ya'll wish to remain losers. A closing video below I wanted to add, of opinions of people on the street protesting Trump in Berlin and NYC.

VETERANS DAY 2016: Veterans Experiences from the IRAQ and AFGHANISTAN WARS ... The "Words of WAR" Edition ... (VETERANS SPOTLIGHT PT.46)






This posting will be Part 46 of the "Veterans Spotlight" series for this journal/ blog ... and to honour and highlight our veterans for "Veterans Day", which is importante to me, as one can see throughout this journal/ series. It's hard to imagine for folks like myself, who never been in combat or the military, to clearly understand the impact of war, but I had many familia, friends that served. We also dont think much about where we would be without strong defense in the world we have, so these folks are part of what I consider as the elite as far as defense, the best trained in the world in my opinion as well. But at the same time, I am disappointed in how our government does not work in the best interests of our troops and the American people, and instead, treats them as disposable ... while to me, the ones who are disposable and worthless to us, is the candy- ass multinational corporate/ banking/ Saudi ass- sucking political puppet network we have in Washington .... which in my opinion, wouldnt disappoint me a bit, if our own military laid down the law and dealt with these bastards in Washington and take more control ... I'll just leave it there though. But, I wanted to add some experiences of veterans below in their own words at least here, of this ongoing battle it seems we have in Afghanistan and Iraq (yes, I have friends and familia that served and serving in both, and multiple tours). I also wanted to add some video and newsread below, of the "burn pits" in Iraq and Afghanistan, and how it is harming not only the citizens and environment of these countries, but 10's of 1000's of our veterans. I wanted to add that, because it is something that was conveniently swept under the rug fast, of course, this is also why I have criticized our invasion and methods of intervention since day one, the first red flag for me, going up in 2003 ... because I knew that Cheney and his friends were fixin to milk us on contract awards, it could financially bankrupt us as well, and it would go on and on and on ... but many people didnt understand that at the time, and veterans (our finest) would end up with the shit end of the stick basically. Thank You to our military defense, veterans, for their strength under pressure, integrity, will and persistence to get the job done that they are ordered to ... more below ... Word Out ....

2016 ELECTIONS REVIEW: A Look at the Election Year & Joy of KNOWING the End is Near ... The "Stressed (B)out" Edition ... (THE END MUST BE NEAR PT.10)

This will be Part 10 of "The End Must Be Near" series of this journal/ blog ... for a little light humour. But what inspires this posting is also about how many Americans are under so much stress because of this election year, that I been reading in the news (NPR/ KERA) ... the choices, the endless yapping, the bitch fights, the lies/ bullshit ... and the medias playing you like yo-yo's, up and down and all around, with the polls and pundits 24/ 7 ... and Thank Goodness this bloody damn thing is ending in a couple dayz, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {:-) As far as the Presidential part of this election, that gets the bulk of the atencion, this is nothing but like a wrestling bout of words and bullshit between multimillionaires and billionaires, who have a evident past of close friendship. So do yourself a favour (since many in Washington are unlikely to do shit for you {:-), DON'T let this stress you out, DON'T turn on your familia, friends, neighbours because of this nonsense, lose sleep, or wake up wednesday morning with the red- ass (angry). I have talked to folks around Dallas, that say they're confused on how to vote ... I told them ... "dont worry yourself, there will be other elections, if you cant decide, just flip a coin or pull straws, leave it there and forget it ... it's not worth it to you mentally" ... and trust me, I been playing this game for 4 decades. It's enough as it is all the stress American's feel, you dont need this. My first pick for a Presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, didnt make it, but I'm sure not gonna lose sleep over it, for me, the House and Senate are more importante who gets in and who gets the boot ... but even if it dont come out the way I like, no problemo, just stay on their asses, voting, boycotting, signing petitions, social media, and holding them accountable ... cause they sure as Hell aint gonna hold themselves accountable, and many wouldnt give the average American the time of day if you met them on the street. But I been hearing/ reading as well about how this has divided families and friends ... which is also not cool ... let them in Washington fight and bitch with each other, they're getting paid big $$Bux$$ to, you're not getting a paycheck, dont let it effect your relationships. I shook hands and even befriended many from both sides and the extreme on both sides over the years, just because I vote Democrat, doesnt mean I dislike you if you're a Republican voter, we have more in common as middle and working class American's, than in common with some of this overpaid and over- praised crowd in Washington, their campaign talk only is meaningful to us as Americans, if they show through their actions, they will try to do what they say in campaigns, even if they dont make it, but at least "try", that's enough for me. A little video below to close out with I found on YouTube ... Enjoy!

LITTLE RICHARD: "Ready Teddy", "Long Tall Sally", "Tutti Frutti", "Jenny Jenny" & "Good Golly Miss Molly"

***** LITTLE RICHARD| FACEBOOK



This posting for the music/ arts honour roll society of this journal, is one I been intending to get in here for some time, to highlight "Little Richard" (wikipedia) out of the music capital of Georgia, Macon. Little Richard contributed so much to form the rock and roll music of America in the 1950's, driving the charts and pumping up audiences during intense shows ... it was my mom that turned me on to Little Richard in the early 1960's, she was a big fan of his singing in particular. Little Richard is a trademark vocalist as well, that had so much influence on so many, in particular, he personally taught vocal work and his music to Paul McCartney, and The Beatles at a time in their first start were thrilled to be brought into the scene as an opening act for Little Richard, Jimi Hendrix got a big start playing for Little Richard ... and influencing many noted artists, from Otis Redding to James Brown to Michael Jackson to Bon Scott (AC/ DC), and many others. This era and foundation of rock and roll at the time, was exclusively American, which is mainly what inspired rock bands to form and multiply during the British invasion of the newer amplified blues, hard rock, metal, and gave new dimensions to R&B music. Little Richard played on so many labels, with so many artists, many awards/ honours, spiced up many popular covers he done, as well as his own, and was a pretty good pianist of that genre of the 1950's, starting out from beating on kitchen pots and pans to being influenced by noted gospel singers in shaping his vocal work and powerful voice, started doing vocals as a kid in church and played sax, and just continued to move up, and what a life this guy had, which you can view in the Wikipedia above. Thank You to Richard for his contributions and influence, and the great classic pieces ... more below ... Enjoy!
