The Way You Wish Things Could Be

XTERIOR BRIDGE OVER POTOMAC RIVER - NIGHT

CLOSE SHOT - Rummy is standing by the railing, staring morosely into the water. The snow is falling hard. Feeling a tap on his shoulder, he wheels around and wrestles an old man with wings into a headlock.

OLD MAN: Ouch! Tut, tut. When will you learn that force doesn't solve everything?

RUMMY: Who the dickens are you?

OLD MAN: Clarence, Angel First Class. I've been sent down to help you.

Corporate Takeover of Government Well Underway

"The few who understand the system, will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantages...will bear its burden without complaint, and perhaps without suspecting that the system is inimical to their best interests." - Rothschild Brothers of London communiqué to associates in New York June 25, 1863

Mark Twain's War Prayer

"O Lord our Father, our young patriots, idols of our hearts, go forth to battle -- be Thou near them! With them -- in spirit -- we also go forth from the sweet peace of our beloved fire sides to smite the foe. O Lord our God, help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire; help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief; help us to turn them out roofless with little children to wander unfriended the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames of summer and the icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring Thee for the refuge of the grave and denied it -- for our sakes who adore Thee, Lord, blast their hopes, blight their lives, protract their bitter pilgrimage, make heavy their steps, water their way with their tears, stain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet! We ask it, in the spirit of love, of Him Who is the Source of Love, and Who is the ever-faithful refuge and friend of all that are sore beset and seek His aid with humble and contrite hearts. Amen.



Ye have prayed it; if ye still desire it, speak! -- The messenger of the Most High waits!"



--Mark Twain

Divine Canine

their wings touching the water, a flock of ducks skimmed low over the rivers surface in a tight formation and at such an angle that from a distance their dark forms blended together to first create the impression of a pack of dogs racing across the surface of the water.



but as the formation relaxed, their wings opened to climb and take flight.



that they were fowl and not divine canine running on water became quite apparent.

Bring It On

The End Days can't come fast enough. Let Christ come down with his empty chariot, to fill with those he's chosen to take with him to heaven, that the rest of us can be rid of the faithfully blind, so that we can go on to build a new world from the ashes they leave behind.



Who really are the chosen one's? Those who must must seek the comfort of a greater being, or those with the strength to carry on and build a better world?

The Ball's In Your Court

To those who voted for Bush,



I sure hope you're right. You chose him, now be responsible for him.

I'll just do my part and deal with it, time to move on right? Country is in you and your hands, simply cause I didn't vote for him. I won't and can't support most of the conservative agenda as well as Bush's agenda. So I won't be responsible for whatever occurs on his watch. Don't expect me to stand by your side and support you on issues I personally don't support. A true strong American has an opinion and stands on their own to support that opinion until questioned and proven otherwise. One who stands by others opinion without question, while setting their personal beliefs aside or not having one of their own, is not an American. One who demands others follow their opinion without question, even when that opinion becomes wrong and harmful is not an American. A true American is one who votes for a President they are not afraid to question.

What Am I?

If liberalism is expressing one's opinion freely without harm to others, without repression, then I am a Liberal. If liberalism is the freedom to express my opinion so as to make my opinion known to others without forcing others or insisting others take an equal view, then I am a Liberal. If Liberalism is to resist unwarranted Government interference to repress my opinion, then I am a Liberal.

conversations with BK

BK: Kerry was never going to win, ever. Bushmerica has too much invested in the Christian King and his reign will not end until they can no longer profit from it, or something larger takes their interest.

RP: very well said

BK:Why thank you. The hopelessness I've felt since 9/11 has never abated, and I don't know if it will, in all honesty, in my lifetime. Whoever put Bush into office has thoroughly taken everything pure and right about this country, carefully bent it over a ledge, and has fucked it bloody. The sad thing is--there's no going back.

BK: So, y'know, if you ever wanted to live in the 1950's, now's your chance.

RP: hey did u notice in that map of the US showing the Red States and Blue States, did you notice that the color Red is now a good color in a majority of the peoples eyes, when only 50 years ago, Red was a menace, and also did you notice, the progressive Blue states are all along water, open ocean, while the Red states are near no open water, except for Illinois, which is on a lake. Hmmmmmmmmm

BK: The progressive states being along the water, I attribute to those states being historically shipping-based, which led to those states having a more cosmopolitan populace, and diverse--we needed slaves and cheap labor. Now, it's where all the international airports are, and where commerce centers tend to be. Hence, a smarter, more sophisticated, and diverse, populace.

RP: very good answer

BK: Didn't notice the red thing. But that's okay--we're being run single-minded communist-esque fuckos anyway.

BK: Tips for the future: keep your head down, keep your mouth shut, and make popular entertainment with a message-the only thing they can't (and don't want to) stop

BK: Anything blatant doesn't work anymore.

RP: this all might be great for art in general. it is during times of repression that great art shines because its the only way to express the truth without being blatant.

BK: Right. It'll be interesting at the very least. I thought Team America was goddamned brilliant AND goddamned blatant

RP: it might also be great for the horror genre, where so much metaphor lives

BK: Horror is HUGE right now

BK: Everytime they put out a horror movie it does well

BK: The biggest things going right now are horror and family films. Coincidence?

RP: LOL, wow

Worth Repeating Again, Out On A Really Long Limb

Kerry by A Landslide!!!!!!

I dare say, I do. Republicans voting for Kerry. No way. But in a way, yes. By not voting. So many Republicans support the party, but not the man. An embarrassing President. A man who should be equally as smart as the rest of us, if not more so, but is not. Between the large numbers of new Democratic registrations and those Republicans who in incredible excess will not vote at all, we will have a Kerry landslide. Be that as it may, The Boston Red Sox have won The World Series, The New England Patriots are on record roll and all good things happen in threes, and you can't count on the Celtics this year, no Kennedy in the running... but there's Kerry.

Like the hands of a clock, reality reels around the face of history, inevitably coming 'round to the same hour, bound to repeat.

Herman Goering -

"Why, of course, the people don't want war," Goering shrugged. "Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece. Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship."



Gustave Gilbert -

"There is one difference," I pointed out. "In a democracy the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars."



Herman Goering -

"Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

Bullshit

I am sure of this.

No one is ever as confident as they seem, or as they perceive themselves to be.

We all have flaws known & unknown.

We all have hopes & goals left unfullfilled.

We all have fears & doubts that have as much if not more to do with how we govern our lives than we believe.

Order of Things In Chaos

So many of us are afraid to questîon those in charge especially when their authority is questionable & without right, when it is we who put them there. Imagine how much more placid & persuaded we would be if the danger of unquestioned authority were not so evident. It can be so easy. One in authority need not round up the populace to prevent dissent. We lock ourselves in our homes with obese inducing foods & inane television entertainment that works just as well to keep us in our place. Our jail keepers are television channels & networks of moribund entertainment, these modern subversive, subconscience icons of misinformation & passive entertainment give us what we want most, to be comforted like children, to be coddled & quelled, a stacis that so conveniently, whether deliberate or not, keeps us from thinking for ourselves, & questioning those in control.

Out on A Limb

Kerry by A Landslide!!!!!!

I dare say, I do. Republicans voting for Kerry. No way. But in a way, yes. By not voting. So many Republicans support the party, but not the man. An embarrassing President. A man who should be equally as smart as the rest of us, if not more so, but is not. Between the large numbers of new Democratic registrations and those Republicans who in incredible excess will not vote at all, we will have a Kerry landslide. Some say they're not voting for a President, but for the Presidents Cabinet. Yeah, really, I've heard that. Does that make any sense? Vote not for The President, but for his subordinates? I don't think so.


Welcome to The Slaughterhouse

each day passes as the last

and the next.



a sea of bobbing heads hobble forward,

sure of purpose,

unaware of the doubt that guides them,

the cement of perceived sanity they walk on.



forever on a quest for reason and truth of purpose,

a path strewn with the waste of past,

lost dreams spent,

run over by reality and left like roadkill,

to dry in the sun.



rhythm, sound, light and motion,

permeate blankets of warm metaphor,

that which we accept to be reality.



we stride forward in kind,

step by step,

whittled down to a single file,

toward a black hole of expectation,

hope and desire,

the hammer of reality awaits

to crash down upon us and reveal our innermost,

crimson bright and chunky,

spilt out on the slaughterhouse floor.

Democratic Voter Roll Increases

Flood of New Voters Signing Up

A Big Increase of New Voters in Swing State



Love Those Those Texas Back Stabbers

Its obvious Dubya gives Texans a bad name.

What Really Happened

A great website...



"A New York Times article said, "Some estimates put the total debt owed by the poorest countries at around $200 billion."



"$200 billion a year is what it costs to fill out tax forms every year."



"That coincidentally, is the very amount Bush has spent so far on invading Iraq (not to mention the cost in lives). Instead of invading Iraq, Bush could have paid off the ENTIRE debt of some 30+ Third World countries, given countless nations a radical chance at improving their economic livelihood, created tremendous good will for the US, encouraged them (through incentives) to embrace democracy and economic reform (which would be far harder for governments to avoid with the huge opportunity this would have provided) and in the end helped turn impoverished nations into vibrant nations and -- hey, it's good for the US economy -- growing markets for our goods and services."

mother nature pays florida a visit

mother natures pissed off. shes so pissed off she's come back for more. mothers got a new dyson designed hurricane so she can suck all the shit out of that fountain of yucks penninsula, divine retribution for getting that burnt bush into office, undeserved, letting him plunder our pockets for our crop of cash. consumerism is the new the culture. cash the crop, brought to market and exchanged for far less than its worth. the modern feudal system whereby we toil on cement fields, forests of glass and steel, urban farming and foraging for cash, only to be left with scraps after the tax collector has come by to gather their share of cash crop for the ruling class. less than pawns, we are the felt bottoms, the thin difference between finely cast gold chess pieces and the dusty board they play their lethal games on.









peak oil

peak oil, a new term for you all to know. know it well, it is a sign of a very bleak future. you read enough history, reading of civilizations in decline all throughout pre-history and history, wondering what it could be like, to be part of civilization in decline. am i too pessimistic, realistic, when you have kids you worry. all the signs of a very fucked world fast approaching seem to be there. read this article linked to the title of this entry, google the term "peak oil", and know for yourself. one of many things we're never told of, that we never bother to know of. so much information so at hand and we sweep it and bag it like fallen leaves in autumn.

we're so anal about how we look, we look for fast easy ways to fix the things we break, not realizing that quick and easy might just kill you.

yeah thats what they told Yusuf (Cat Stevens) Islam, "we want your autograph, hehe, yeah for our homeland security database. sucka!!!!"





You've successfully slain the dragon! How will you toast your marshmallows?

using the freshly torn ribs from within the still hot carcass of the slain beast to pierce the white flesh of the marshmellow and burn them to a crisp over the fiery dragon pit

God vs Bush

So this is either divine retribution, or Republican weather control. God could be pissed off or the Repub's are controlling the weather, fucking Floridians and buying them off with FEMA emergency funds. Or its all just coincidence.

face in the window

see the face, frame left. a still frame from infra-red footage shot at night at an alleged haunted house in cape may nj. i pulled back to a wide shot from a close up of two names etched on the outside of an upstairs window. later when we watched the footage what looked like a face appeared in the window pane. not a reflection. the image stays in place on that pane, a reflection wouldn't. and there wasn't anyone standing to my left produce the reflection. nor was there any room for someone to stand to my left. except for the real thing, the only other thing it could be is an aberration in the glass refracting light. but for infra-red light, there was extremely little ambient light entering the room. we needed flashlights to get around, and no, a flashlight wasn't being used at the moment. our only visibility was the image in the camera. hmmmmmmmm? click on the image to play the clip.







Yes, Our President

Any of us who spoke like this during oral reports in school would have been failed.

The Vote

Getting out the vote is more important than ever, especially among the young (18-30), who seem to be more involved than ever. This often ignored group when it comes to serious issues if mobilized could make or break the election for either candidate.

Real

diesel engines roar with impatience, in steaming hot tunnels,

towing trains filled with the armies of corporate temples,

worship the anal beasts of empire,

shooting out like bullets of urban angst,

they make their way into the near barren womb of suburbia, impregnated with the fatigued sperms spewed back from the rape of corporate imperialism.

Get Out of The Way

Its called denial when you don't want to face up to a flaw in yourself or something you've done wrong. Like this morning. All the way from Pleasantville Road to the train station I road up someones ass. So from my point of view, she, the driver ahead of me was driving way too slow - wait! Lets take it from her point of view: here we have lots of time to get to the station, so she tries to make the drive a relaxing one. She's having a cigarette, her friend is sitting shotgun & they're probably having a conversation. Then here I come boning up her rear end, driving in her trunk, as the passenger said, adding a little anxiety to the mix. What the fuck! Pull back asshole! What's the rush? I can't go anywhere cause I've got cars ahead of me! Yes you do! You do have cars ahead of you: slow ass cars! A slow ass BMW: why own a sports car a BMW M7 when you treat it like a fucken Edsel. I'm not talking NASCAR track here, but fuck, open it up a bit. I mean, does it have to take you a minute to go from 0-30? I pride myself on reacting quickly, not dawdling. Trust me, I'm as lazy as next guy, even more so. I love lazy scenic drives where I don't go fast. But you know what? I get out of the way or speed up when I'm driving too slow for someone behind me. I don't drive slow or cruise in the left lane: left is for passing. If you're not passing, move it over. Granted, this morning the road was a single lane, so you can't pass, but respond quicker. Act like you want to go forward. Step on the gas when coming off a stop.

What does SVEIKS! mean? The car had that sticker on its rear.

So back to how I started this rant. Was I wrong for riding up her ass. Yes I was!

Conversation

• you support capital punishment?

• yes I do.

• you do? Then why aren't you petitioning to participate?

• participate?

• yes! Participate! Take part in the killing of a condemned criminal, a person sentenced to death for whatever reason, to be sure justified for why else would a criminal be sentenced to die but for a most heinous crime. To swing the axe, release the blade of a guillotine, pull the lever of the gallows, the electric switch, the gas spigot, inject the poison. Why allow someone else the joy if it is you among so many who wish death to those committing crimes deserving death? Like shuttle launches & rollercoasters, get in line & wait your turn to take part.

• I don't know about that.

• You don't? You should!

• But I don't think they'd let me.

• Well then stand up for your rights. You wanted it. You paid for it. You should get to do it, don't you think? What joy is there in planting a garden if you've planted nothing yourself? What joy is there in spying the crosses of those you've condemned to death, if you haven't had a hand in it? You should demand the right to have a chance to kill at least one person your support of capital punishment has condemned. Your tax dollars pay for it like they do the buses, the trains. You get to use them, right?

• I'm a meat eater, does that mean I should be killing my own cattle?

• Payment for beef is a choice you make. Municipal, state & federal taxes are mandatory burdens for services you have a right to receive. Like the twice weekly garbage collection, capital punishment is a form of waste management. You get to throw out the garbage, they get rid of it.

• They wouldn't let me watch, let alone do it.

• Well thats wrong. How is it you support something you can't take part in?

• Well I believe in just prison sentences, but I'm not going to use my house as a jail.

• Why not?

• Because I don't have to.

• Like capital punishment?

• Yes.

• Prison sentences are punishment for criminals. Capital punishment has always been intended as a deterrent as well as the ultimate punishment for the heinous crimes the condemned have commited. How could it deter anyone if its done in secret: no public hand involved, no public witnessing. Used to be the town turned a hanging into a community event. Everybody got to watch. You had to be really bad to want to commit a capital crime. Nowadays, most don't know what its like to watch someone killed, let alone take part in it.

• And we should?

• I believe we should.

• Nah. Not for me. Let someone else do it.

• You'd rather not know how the burger gets to your table, just so it's there for you to eat.

• Thats right.

• It's made us a weak country.

Imagine

Imagine if the admin of this country actually orchestrated 911, using Saudi operatives. Why not? Saudi operatives of the USA, willing to die. But why? Brainwashed? Manchurian if not Baghdad Candidates. Saudi criminals, subjects of mind control experimented. Used by the CIA, ruled by the industrial class elite, with Saudi help, to take control of the oil, away from extremist groups bent on goals opposite of the Western Industrial Elite. Those we "elect", actually work for the industrial elite, who also control the CIA. The industrial elite needs us as much as we need them. They are leaders who need to keep the populace, the followers, complascent. There are few leaders among the general populace, but an elite leader wants not to agitate the populace, for from it may rise a leader of the people able to gather a following large & aggressive enough to disrupt the status quo, to bring about a new paradigm.

What makes a populace accept a leader who goes unquestioned? That populace is missing something, in need of something, so desperate the need, their search becomes wieldy & reckless. What is the USA missing? Meaning? Purpose? We barely have a history compared to most country's. The previous occupants of this land had a long & varied history perhaps reaching back to the age of the first farmers. We destroyed them. Knowingly? Knowingly as in the Europeans knew they were there. That the inhabitants of the new world knew the true history of the past & the fascist european industrial elite sought them out to destroy them?

Back to the point! Americans all of a sudden discover they have no meaning. This why a populace, in this case the American populace, submits so easily to anothers lead, no matter how maniacal. A reason to believe in oneself. Competition is the easiest & most effecient way to achieve this goal: whether in sports against a known enemy, or in war against anybody who dares in the way of our stated goal. It's a goal we can't achieve without taking it or something else, from our adversary, to appease our needs. The fascist leaders play upon these desires for meaning & purpose. They supply the populace with tangible goals & ideas, & threats as obstacles to them. Give us some to fight for & an antagonist. It becomes a grand drama, we the players, the elite the directors. However, we don't know we are actors in a grand drama. Pawns in a chess game whose spoils & prize we don't get a share of. We are the coal fed to a fire that drives an ancient machine of greed, whose greed is sated through conquest, occupation & hegemony. With the right prodding, most of us will gladly leap into the fire, while the few radicals resisting would have to be shoveled in.

Worst Case Scenario

A group of very wealthy men, friendly with a group of even wealthier men, conspire to take control of the most powerful, wealthiest & technologically advanced country on the planet, sureptiously corrupting its election process to gain high office, changing laws through favoritism, bribery & outright threat to favor the ruling class. The ruling class, those who have majority control of the worlds wealth & resources. Convincing the populace of the most free of countries to shed their rights in exchange for protection from a false threat of fear & terror. Whereupon they perceive their control to be complete, to fully realize their oontrol, they conspire to abolish free elections in said free country through further fear, by suggesting the elections be cancelled if a major terrorist event occurs . Would they, could they go so far as to perpetrate a major terrorist act against the people, cancelling elections, causing revolt, forcing marshall law & cancelling elections.





Baptism

What is baptism but an initiation into the tightly controlled club called the catholic church, for the benefit of those unwilling to commune with God themselves, instead allowing others to have that authority & receive Gods word second hand.
