Afterwords and Forewords

The buyin' power of the proletariat's gone down
Money's gettin' shallow and weak - Bob Dylan

News, some good and some meh, before shaking out the mothballs.

Happily, and no thanks to me, the Rigorous Intuition book has at last gone to press. It wound up running about 500-pages, words and art, plus index. (And most of all, I'm thrilled about the index. Better books than mine are made useless without them.) It can be ordered directly from Trine Day, or through Amazon or Indigo, and I'm sure elsewhere. I'm planning for a launch at Toronto's Conspiracy Culture, and it would be fun and probably scary to see some of you there, or wherever else the book leads me.

Though I'm not so thrilled about this: my bill-paying gig has gone under, for the second time in four years, and almost certainly for the last. The economy's never great for magazines, and especially not now, or so the money people say.

But the consequences of both are complementary. The weight of the book has finally lifted, and Frank's daily deadlines won't distract me again from the work I think I should be doing instead. And so I'll be posting here with more regularity, adding long-deferred enhancements to the site and the forum, and drafting a proposal for a book that would take me away from the desk and into the field for some original research.

And if you're able and so inclined, I've at last fixed the Paypal link in the bar to the right.

A proper, content-heavy post is forthcoming.

@Jeff: Congrats! Must be a good feeling. I'll petition the local library to pick up a copy (not so many big bookstores hidden among the trees here, and Amazon is off limits 'til the card stops making that klaxon noise and flashing every time I pull it out of my wallet).

You get out on the Coast, I'll make an effort to drag my sorry hairy butt down to wherever and lurk moodily and anonymously among the crowd...or maybe say hi and get a copy signed, eh?

Look for the green, knobby thing towering in the corner and beathing stertorously with the effort of not slapping little elves and monkeys aside and fleeing the crowd.

And hey - if money stops working, I'll bring you some local handicrafts.

Awesome that the book lives. I'm looking forward to it. Hope you make a bundle off it.

@Sillly Rabbit: No car and living in New York? Sensible before, but now I'd say trade in your rent on the down payment or rental of something sturdy and get TF outta town before things get any worse. Come back to visit when you're rich.

Unless you are rich, in which case I'd say get yourself a little something rural with geothermal or a Toshiba mini-nuke-plant or whatever. Maybe a ranch and some ranchers, like that clever (if cold) Bill Bonner guy.

@ All: I just saw a pattern. I think I've got something here.

1. President they think they want, war they think they want. (Bush, Gulf I)

2. President they want, war they don't want or understand (Clinton, Eastern Europe).

3. President they don't wan't, war they hate (Bush 2.0, GW 2.0).

4. President they want (Obama, war they weren't expecting and don't want at all (???yikes!???).

5. President they want, war they want now, after what those baztids dun to us (think financial collapse, foreign smashage of and seizage of Imperial possessions like the Phillipines)...

I bet there's a corresponding set of economic tricks that fit right in with this.

But then again, I am quite quite squirrely ding-dong mad mad mad as a hatter .

Way to go, meh man... And these people still believe you write anything other than religious mythology?

"And if you're able and so inclined, I've at last fixed the Paypal link in the bar to the right."

Sher thing. Wait, let me get my bank card (oops... none such thing.)

Oh, here's a "reality based" thinker. Enjoy.

America, the crowd is told, is being ruled by evil, clandestine organizations that hide behind the veneer of liberal, democratic groups. These clandestine forces seek to destroy Christians. They spread their demonic, secular humanist ideology through front groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union, People for the American Way, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the National Organization for Women, Planned Parenthood, the Trilateral Commission and “the major TV networks, high-profile newspapers and newsmagazines,” the U.S. State Department, major foundations (Rockefeller, Carnegie, Ford), the United Nations, “the left wing of the Democratic Party” and Harvard, Yale “and 2,000 other colleges and universities.” All of these groups have joined forces, LaHaye has warned, to “turn America into an amoral, humanist country, ripe for merger into a one-world socialist state.”

The radical Christian right has no religious legitimacy. It is a mass political movement. It is interchangeable, in many ways, with other traditional political movements ranging from fascism to communism to the ethnic nationalist parties in the former Yugoslavia. It shares with these movements an inability to cope with ambiguity, doubt and uncertainty. It also embraces a world of miracles and signs and makes war on rational, reality-based thought. It condemns self-criticism and debate as apostasy. It places a premium on action. It dismisses those who do not bow down before its god—and the leaders who claim to speak for God—as heretics and traitors. This movement shares with corporatists, who are busy cannibalizing our society for profit, the belief that there are a chosen few who know the truth and therefore have the right to impose it. The citizen, the individual, no longer has any legitimacy in this new world. All legitimacy is assumed by groups, whether they are corporate groups herding us over the cliff of globalization or religious groups that give popular vent to corporate-generated despair through faith in the Christian utopia. In this paradigm—corporate and religious—we become disempowered, afraid, passive and easily manipulated.

@ ???: Hah! Been looking for this for ages! I can't remember what the discussion was or who it was with or when, but I know it was here. The topic matter is pretty much self-explanatory for the rabbit-holeteers here...

"The Aristocrat"

by G. K. Chesterton

The Devil is a gentleman, and asks you down to stay
At his little place at What'sitsname (it isn't far away).
They say the sport is splendid; there is always something new,
And fairy scenes, and fearful feats that none but he can do;
He can shoot the feathered cherubs if they fly on the estate,
Or fish for Father Neptune with the mermaids for a bait;
He scaled amid the staggering stars that precipice, the sky,
And blew his trumpet above heaven, and got by mastery
The starry crown of God Himself, and shoved it on the shelf;
But the Devil is a gentleman, and doesn't brag himself.

O blind your eyes and break your heart and hack your hand away,
And lose your love and shave your head; but do not go to stay
At the little place in What'sitsname where folks are rich and clever;
The golden and the goodly house, where things grow worse for ever;
There are things you need not know of, though you live and die in vain,
There are souls more sick of pleasure than you are sick of pain;
There is a game of April Fool that's played behind its door,
Where the fool remains for ever and the April comes no more,
Where the splendour of the daylight grows drearier than the dark,
And life droops like a vulture that once was such a lark:
And that is the Blue Devil that once was the Blue Bird;
For the Devil is a gentleman, and doesn't keep his word.

@ TripleG: I got acid like that once. Blotters weren't cut too even I followed the guy around a bit, caught him heading to the public library deposit slot downtown...grabbed the books he was returning, found the little cut-out squares, got my refund (oh yes indeed), and told him off for vandalizing public property.

@3G: Actually, it's not that much of a mystery who you're talking to. I expect you and your undoubtedly also unusual circle of co-posters are using a string of blogs to converse in the same way that modern police radios do patterned frequency-hopping.

I suppose this could be a useful technique for low-level samizdat, but soft language and infrequency are better bedfellows in rebellion, be it mental, dental, or check other.

I still wonder, as I have for years, why you've got that Heinlein moniker. Those were very philosophical and political stories (the family Stone stuff, long before the band existed kids) - is there a connection we should be making?

Blogger Peter Greene said...

@ OBGeddon: Jeepers, that sounds awful. Everyone should be afraid to kill. It changes you. Even the killing by quanta of extended influence we all perform changes us, socially, mentally, historically.

The words you use "moral" and "conservative" have many meanings depending upon viewpoint and intent. A man can be both things, and in fact act with total integrity (being the integration between moral principle and action), and still be neither wanted nor needed.

What we need, in my view, is a lot of work done rebuilding our transactional hierarchy here in the West. Distributed, infinitely adjustable economic and political boundaries, increased role exchange at macro and micro levels, new protocols to control the relationships between localized control structures while managing the greatly increased transactional complexity resulting worldwide.

We CAN do it.

But not while we run around braying rhetoric and spraying bullets. We look like f*ckin retards out there, and not the nice kind JAD works with, but the head-injury abused-child fetal-alcohol serial criminal kind. The Chinese must be squirting with impatience for us to get our incompetent asses of the Imperial pot and let someone with some training handle the job.

Not that they'll do a lot better. 8 ways, 2 ways, whatever. There's only 1 way to do a job, and there's an infinitude of jobs out there, a multiplicity multiplied of potential tasks and purposes for the intrepid species or individual.

There's a bigger job at hand, too, if I and a million other freaks don't miss our collective hunch. The Conjunction is here, and we like all the rest of Creation face some choices. The future will be very, very different. Slow social, biological and technological logarithmic curves rise to vanishing, hurtling singularity points. As our total interactions increase like axons, as our speed and power rise with our machines, so new possibilities are revealed to us.

Yo - if we hit the unified field theory, nail stable fusion, spawn full AIs and then become them, the whole 9 yards, will the sky light up with big letters, incomprehensible to our current minds, readin "Level 2 - Loading?"

Or are we just whistling in the endless horrible f*cking dark?

Just aksin.

@TripleG: Glad to see you're as obsessed with speeelimbg as I am.

Your adopted name is in fact the name of the fictional (or is he....muhahahahaaa) ultra-villain in the adventure stories enjoyed by one of the Stone family children in Heinlein's great space-adventure story, The Rolling Stones (written long the band was out of high school, chilluns). I just always wondered why you chose it. The Stone family stories are very philosophical and political (like most of Heinlein's work), and I thought you might be making some wildly oblique point.

I'd really like a copy of that book. I haven't seen it since I was about 11 years old. It's really good.

Even though Heinlein's kind of a little Roman-style elitist monster. Not so much wrong with that, after all - depending upon your attitude to life.

@Dennis: Lived near bears when I first came back to the coast. When you're cycle-commuting in an extremely rural highway-edge community, you really hate seeing that stuff steam as you wheel out onto the trail to the road.

Our neighbour used to leave all his windfalls in buckets on my side of the fence, as the bears usually came up from the beach on my side and then smash down the fence on their way to get drunk on rotting apples.

Drunk bears at 6 A.M. Welcome to the coast, eh?

P.S. On the voting, I'd just have to vote for an outside ticket or wreck my ballot. You got the Devil's rotting left testicle and a gun-toting soccer mom with a sub-100 I.Q. on one side, and the Ecthroi Biden and a mind-controlled puppet of Chicago School sociologists on the other. Both promise war, murder, international crime, and disaster on the grand scale. Fuck them, no asterisk. And you can put that in your pipe and smoke it.

(runs out of the room coughing uncontrollably)

(returns, wiping eyes and beard) Hmmm. Maybe you should put something else in your pipe and smoke it. Those creeps tasted like argyle socks, razor blades, and dead spiders. With a hint of expensive aftershave.

Wonder what the markets will do on Monday morning? Another 2.5 million ARMs reset on the first of the month. Makes one shiver with anticipatory dread.

You know, we're headed straight for feudalism, and fighting the same wars too.

I hope this isn't the week TSHTF. I've got plans to lock down before currency devaluation, shortages, and social decay set in. The Caves are still unsecured - one fluctuation in my situation and they're gone.

Seriously considering taking the inevitable dirty beating this soft market would give me and flipping the Caves to somewhere waaaay cheaper (like Newfoundland or rural Manitoba or something, not kidding) to become solvent. My income is zilch, and I haven't even been writing much (chewing my nails waiting for this agent I found to get back to's neat to be a newbie and old at the same time). No calls from the little hotel here - no business, so no burgers for cranky Lords to flip. If I made a low five-figure profit off the Caves, there's a lot of places I could own outright and still have change left over. Just need a chainsaw, stove, and truck for heating and foraging. I can move wood around, slowly.

Boy, would the cat be maaaaaad. Actually, so would I. I really like it here a lot - B.C. is my home, and this little green rock I've found is the best place on Earth there is, bar none.

But I gotta eat, and the near-term economic future for me doesn't look too cool.

Or for the rest of us, actually. Here, read this

Apparently, wired for 70 amps, heating mainly with wood, and running little but my computer and screen (which is a big one, and pulls out 185 watts at peak - I usually run it under half output power tho), I've used "more than the average B.C. household" and get to pay some of my charge at a jacked-up, impossible-to-justify power-pig rate.

Funny thing is, we use renewable power here. Coming from dams and turbines with another hundred years of both function and spare capacity left. I mean, I was alive when we publicly planned this sh*t. We projected these demands. We have enough...except for NAFTA.

Time to unplug Bumf*ck, North Dakota, and take back the Columbia River, too. Hey Japan, wanna buy some shale oil futures? Hey Indonesia - wanna buy all our lumber and have your very own housing boom?

What are the Yanks going to do about it? They can't handle Iraq, fa f*ck's sakes. We'd make mincemeat out of them.

Burned down that kitsch fake-Roman plantation-owner lookin' house you always paint white once, boys. Do it again for ya if you like.

Reptor, it's surely possible.
that would fit in with Cheney's hunger for power..
though I can't shake the feeling that the Bush administration's legacy will be the expansion of presidential and Vice Presidential pwers.

Taoist Yoga: Alchemy and Immortality, trans. by Charles Luk states NO SALT. This is what I adhered to when I did intensive qigong training in the fall of 2000. Then in CIA mind control scientist Dr. Andrija Puharich's book BEYOND TELEPATHY he argues that the secret of creating brain plasma (electromagnetic light) is by increasing potassium since it ionizes the protons to bend spacetime. He's relying on some quantum math plus some relativity. Obviously not eating salt is pretty tricky in this day and age because if you eat grain, much less meat, you need salt to counter act the acid. Otherwise you can get enough sodium from veggies and I just used BRAGGS soy seasoning to make sure I got enough sodium. So now I come across this:

And then I discovered that the use of potassium in the above link creates potassium hydroxide, which is also the easiest way to create an alkaline fuel cell. So then I realized that the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system act as the electrodes with potassium hydroxide to create the electromagnetic energy, thereby turning the body-mind into a fuel cell: Alchemy.

Gosh, isn't it a glorious election morning here in the good ol' U. S. of A?

As I sit here with my cup of hot cocoa, my feet nestled snuggly in my bunny slippers, I anticipate, nay, I expectantly await, like a soon to be deflowered bride, my chance to cast my vote for BARACK OBAMA.

I think we need a CHANGE.

I also think, nay, I HOPE that all of you will put aside your persnickety anti-American negativity and cast your ballot for BARACK OBAMA.

BARACK OBAMA signifies HOPE in these trying times when CHANGE is so sorely needed.

As all of you know, Mr. McCain voted with George Bush 90% of the time.
Mr. McCain is also an economic poopy head.

Mr. McCain once yelled fire in a theater filled with crippled children, old blind women, and one legged sailors no longer fit to sail the 7 seas.

Mr. McCain wears a corset made of human skin and it is whispered, around girl scout campfires deep in the heart of Texas, that he has even eaten of the dreaded long pig.

It is also rumored that Mr. McCain has mastered the arcane and mysterious ritual that enables him to place backwards messages into his speeches as they are given in real time.

Mr. McCain also has a weird wooden smile that percolates under one's skin until one HOPES that someone near the remote control will have the good sense to CHANGE the channel.

I further state that I HOPE nothing will CHANGE or alter your course as you make a quick and hasty bee-line for BARACK OBAMA's name on today's ballot.

Your children will speak to you again.
Your wife will view you with new eyes. Even consenting to the cessation of all seduction attempts aimed at your son's virile, hot football playing buddies.
Even your dog will no longer piddle in your bunny slippers.

We start today with HOPE
in order to CHANGE all of our tomorrow's.

That was nice, Eve, but I'm not buying it. I'm surprised Jeff has kept his mouth shut about all of this. Barring the unforseen, Obama will be elected president today. His story is such great material for this site. He's the ultimate Manchurian Candidate, just as Clinton was. Fatherless at an early age. And Obama's grandma dies one day before the offering to Satan for delivering the election to Obama? Come on, guys, let's get busy on all of the potential conspiracy theories surrounding Obama's unorthodox past and his meteoric rise to power. Oh, and who says black people aren't racist? 90% of them are voting for Obama based purely on the color of his skin. Cybthia McKinney more closely represents their needs, but they're not voting for her, are they. Nope, they will vote the "black man" in, and vote against their interests, once again.

@OB-Ged-OB: I dunno, man. Cain could still get rammed in there. Kind of not going to actually win, per se, but he could end upwith the job.

I think you're right, though. It's time for the American people to think they've won for a minute or two, before the sordid business of shearing and slaying, ahhhh, I mean running the country, begins again.

But I wonder if they will cap him...doubt it, they trained him long. More likely, a big big biggity big terrorist strike kaBOOM! And then well we all gotta pull together, and use the issue scrip to pick up our food ration, and don't ask what happened to the neighbour last night, and I KNOW a policeman shouldn't have done that but there are pressures to the job of protecting us, she'll be alright, maybe, and can you remember when this wall wasn't here?

Basically, with the intelligent animals, all you gotta do is switch the coloured lightbulbs above the 'feed' and 'slaughter' doors every now and then. Even if they smell blood behind the door again, they'll reason their way in there.

So, when's devaluation?

Right after provocation, which comes during collapse.

Speaking of collapse....

How's them stocks and bonds this morning? A vertical morning for the DOW...I've seen speed freaks get outta bed that way too. Doesn't mean they ain't gonna crash later in the day if they run out of cash.

@JAD: America and Japan are both running out of Nazi patents to out-military their opponents with. It's time for a big war, with the technological harvest now growing so ripe in America waiting for the victor to pluck it forth.

The victor is ALWAYS the Eagle. Mark my words.

Whoever wins the war that is currently licking around our ankles (tho' it's over some folk's heads already) will be taking all the crown jewels away to wherever the new nest is.

There, the symbols of the past will re-appear, the monuments, buildings, and ideals of the Republic that always becomes an Empire, always falls, always rises again.

Always wins.

The surviving fleas in her old nest get to pick up the pieces. If there are any this time. After all, if you think what the last tech harvest did to Hiroshima and Nagasaki was ugly, imagine what it'll be like this time around. I wouldn't want to be in the cities that get picked as symbolic targets in the end-phase. Think Fall of Berlin but with robots and field weapons. Think rapacity by remote control.


Lord R.

P.S. Good luck with your elections. I wonder if the outcome will influence the choice of target for launching the full fires of war? My bet is that somebody launches the missing Barksdale nuke at Tel Aviv from one a them uncontrolled regions on the border of Pakistan.

Love the chewed driver's license and shoes they found at Fosset's crash site. Come on, guys, famous pilot goes missing in the same airspace and timeframe as a nuke? GFY.

Ross Perot spoke on CNN about an hour ago. Here is his message to the general public that I have on video tape...

Nobody except you can take full responsibility for being so informed about the complex issues that face our issues that we make intelligent decisions when we go to vote. You've got to have the facts. We've got to get in a Joe Friday mode. Now, today we're easily manipulated by propaganda. We have to know the facts. But we still get kind of twisted around. And it's still happening in 2008. And I know that offends some Americans, but we're still being manipulated by this.

It will continue as long as it works. And the American people must demand an end to negative, mean spirited, bitter politics, name calling, mudslinging, and demands. I have demanded that the candidates deal with the issues. Then we'll be making progress. Now, here's an interesting way to do it. Just don't vote for anybody that gets involved in mudslinging, dirty tricks, and mean spirited politics. That cures that.

Now, some problems are hard to solve, but that will solve this one tonight. Okay.

Over the next few years the government has got to earn and keep the trust of the American people as we put our house in order because it's a tough job. We the people and not the politicians will have to determine our country's future. And that is why I have voted for Barack Hussein Obama for president.

I will never allow myself to become involved in self-interest. I, we must only act in the best interest of the greatest country in the history of man.

There is nothing in this for me in terms of personal gain. I am doing this for my country, for our children, and grandchildren. We have to stop spending their money, and pass on a better, stronger country to them.

People have asked me, stop me in the street all the time, say, Ross, do we have bad people in Washington? No. We have good people in Washington trapped in a bad system, and we have got to change the system.

That is why I am encouraging all Americans to vote for Barack Obama tonight. We have the power and right to change our system into a good system that is functional and I believe that this will happen tonight.

So I've been initiating these two coworkers. One of them followed me outside and the other joined us later. The one had been getting bored so I said how he had to sit in full-lotus and how I do that all day shooting energy... then I saw this younger female standing right across from me, facing me, in a store. I immediately went into full-lotus between the bikes I was standing by. She positioned herself to better receive the energy and he watched my vagus nerve pulsating, stating, "wow she's soaking it up." My eyes were level with her crotch. Neither of us moved for a couple minutes and finally I said to him, "orgasmic." I stood up and said, "hear how my voice is deeper." He goes, "yeah" and I said, "That's the testosterone that I suck up from the mutual climax." haha. Then the other coworker showed up so I related what happened and laughed about it. I explained how I'm supposed to just eat potassium based foods with no salt -- like raisins, collard greens, apples, etc. I said that's why I smell like shit all the time and plus I didn't have any garlic on me. He said yeah but when you were on that salt-free diet you couldn't sit in full-lotus yet. I said yeah but now I really should be on that diet.

Then I was like "Do the Pygmies vote?" haha. I said Civilization IS shit.

Rep, speaking of war, didn't Israel say that if they didn't like how the election was going they'd launch an attack on Iran?

Is an Obama presidency on the wrong side of Israel's expectations?

Although I sat this one out there was much pressure from my union to go for the big O.

A few months back some union rep called to see how I was voting. He caught me on a bad day so I gave him the Cliff Note's version of why I think both parties suck it.
He said, "So...ummmm...I guess I should put you down as undecided?"

Here I am thinking that "They both suck," was a decision. Alas, as a now "undecided" voter, they felt compelled to sway me. One day the motherfucker's called 5 times within an hour. At that point, I told them to fuck off. Explained that if I heard from the union one more time before the election I was gonna vote for McCain. They got the hint.

(In the background, Oprah Winfrey just said that she hasn't seen this sense of unity in the country since 911)

Actually spent the last part of the day raking leaves. Built my kids and their friends from down the way a huge leaf mound which they spent about 2 hours leaping into.

As far as Internet goes, I've been staying away so, for all I know, service may be for shit.

Wow! Expectations are really high for this guy. From actor John Cusack:

"The real challenge is to erase the delusion that greed equals freedom and prosperity, let alone the hideous lie that it somehow spreads justice. Amazingly, we are asked to listen to this gibberish in political life no matter how high the bile rises.

Many believe economies must serve humanity and not the other way around. Economies must make a moral connection to the republic. Brace yourselves free marketers: the quality of economic and human transactions will have to take priority over money. Faith and hope have to manifest in the social transactions we make.

A new social contract could be coming based on a real currency my friend Kevin McCabe calls the currency of grace. It is a currency of economic fairness and institutionalizing concepts of shared responsibility; a currency based on the gold standard that every human has value and should be awarded respect and opportunity, the dignity that comes from human beings protecting each other from the values and ideals of a Darwinist world. Its spirit is in Keynesian economics, a mixed economy with regulated markets and social spending. In the new era, we must remove fundamentalist right wing economists as the high priests and kings. Their ideology will stay dead only if we remain vigilant and call things what they are. It's a battle for the idea of America and it's just beginning if Senator Obama becomes president."

The "currency of grace?"

"A battle for the idea of America?"

Do these guys get different history books than I do?

Obama didn't descend from African American slaves, and he wasn't raised in an African American family, so he doesn't share the heritage or the culture. He adopted it as part of his strategy to ascend the political ladder, just as surely as Bush the New Englander adopted his Texas swagger to ascend his political ladder. People are projecting onto Obama what they want to believe because Obama has encouraged it. Who is he, really? What ever the moment calls for, I'm afraid.

Don't feel bad. Neither do I.

I remember reading an article by Hunter Thompson a few years ago where he basically said that America under Clinton was no less fucked up than America under Bush. The only difference was that Clinton had the ability to make everyone feel like everything would be fine. A talent Bush sorely lacked.

Maybe that's Obama's function. When he tells everyone, in those dulcet preacherly tones, that we just have to bomb Iran or devalue the dollar or move out of the Midwest to make way for our Chinese creditors, we'll just roll over in confidence.

this whole black thing that people are mentioning, uncomfortably...
People keep saying things like,
"Blacks should now see that racism is finally over"
or "it's not like he was a slave, why should blacks still draw this whole racial issue out?"

But the basic aspect of the effect of Slavery on a race, such as the African Americans faced that is forgotten is the fact that Slavery is over but its effects are still felt as ripples in a pond to the black race...and the "white" race.
In America you are Black or White.
but not really, it's so stupid.
The fact that a Black man is the President does not negate the effect of slavery. It has de-humanized the black people of an entire era and the progress they have made has been a brutal, agonizing journey. To see a black face in the oval office should fill every black, white, etc. person in America with a small feeling of pride that it could at least be allowed to happen, and the message it sends to the could be that four letter word...Hope.
But it's a false hope.
A huge disillusionment is coming.
Obama could, however, succumb to the pressure of the Terrible Purpose which he is metaphysically linked to...
and really try to do some "good" or at least something that seems "good" to people with common sense.

When we bought made in America shit, like automobiles, we gave our cash to the CEO's who used our money to finance their global economic ambitions. The CFR, TC and other international business roundtable organizations have their gov't representatives in D.C. that have made this radical economic force a reality. Every individual who paid for an American-made car, for example, assisted this global economic centralization of the automobile industry. Imagine the consumers and workers in the U.S. calling these CEOs victims of our economy. Not only did we help to directly fund the layoffs and factory relocations, we had enabled their global roundtable monopoly as sympathizers, as the unemployment rate soars higher and higher.

Blaming consumers who purchased Japanese models for the job layoffs is missing the mark. The CEOs and major investors now have all countries in sight for their never seen before worldwide monopoly. Hundreds of millions of unrecoverable money has been lost with the mergers but these same individual companies have gained much more control over the standardization of the industry. Their clever schemes are most successful and dominant. Who ever thought that Japanese, American, and European businessmen would be global partners in today's economic world? They did. Well thought out plans that monopolize and permanently put them in the economic driver's seat. The idea of consumer responsibility was a fraud. We as consumers are responsible for funding them. Are they obligated to give our money back to us? No. Will we continue to give them our money? Yes.

Some have claimed that Obama does not meet this legal qualification, but they fail to back it up with references and proof. They claim they have it, but won't provide it.

Bombay, the 57% of whites who voted for McCain are taking their money out of the market and purchasing more guns and ammo with it. Hunker down and stay out of the line of fire.

The way I see it, America did actually have a choice this election.

If they'd picked McCain, WWIII would have started over in the home of his traditional enemies, the Yellow Hordes.

As you've shown your continued interest in things African and Middle Eastern (which is what Big O is supposed to represent), it'll be over there.

Have fun

Oh, and if the Madison Avenue boys get y'all riled up enuff to shoot at each other over which part of the Crayola box y'all from, they'll be happy to sell you the guns. There'll still be plenty of sheep in the cities to use for productive labour and overseas war.

That would be dam' funny - getting a big profitable civil war going while continuing to use up the last Nazi tech on various countries' citizenry, with and without their leaders' collusion...

...then harvesting all the tasty black tech Amerikkka has created over the last fifty years, smashing the whole planet back to feudalism, and replacing the concept of Churches with that of Corporations while the new kings and earls who were once mayors and city police chiefs ravage and abuse their protectorates, war fiercely with each other, and lick their master's hands at Imperial throne and Corporate facility.

Sounds scenic, anyway. Welcome to the future.

January 25, 2006

African-American History Month:
February 2006

To recall and celebrate the positive contributions to our nation made by people of African descent, American historian Carter G. Woodson established Black History Week. The first celebration occurred on Feb. 12, 1926. In 1976, as part of the nation’s bicentennial, the week was expanded into Black History Month.

39.2 million
As of July 1, 2004, the estimated population of black residents in the United States, including those of more than one race. They made up 13.4 percent of the total U.S. population. This figure represents an increase of half a million residents from one year earlier.

Does this theoretically mean that the USA is a black nation?

@Anonymouse The Upset (#96): Ummm, who are you talking to? I think I missed something, somewhere.

Anyway, all this black vs. white crap - more dualist nonsense. Let them sell you the guns, sure, but don't use them on each other, man.

Personally, I self-identify as a different racial group every now and then. I stick to my own likely (rather mixed) ancestry - I'm a man of Brettany, Irish, French, Spanish, Scots, and even sometimes German, just for fun. Sprechen sie Deutsch?

Now if, like my brother-in-law, I sported some true old-school lineage, the purer genes of the great peoples of that first human place, what you fools lump into 'black' (he's what they useta call a quadroon, eh), I could add some more into that list.

It is fun and cool to feel the echoes of those that went before singing in your blood, but if you let that sort of thing affect your own self-identification as a person, you're a total fool. Play to the strengths of your ancestors, don't play conkers with their memories. What they were can help you now. Let your unique genetic build guide your use of your body and mind, but let it not touch your purpose. That belongs to the Mother.

Argufying FOOLS.

@All: And while all this is going on around us, well....

Let's have another cup of cof-fee/Let's have another piece a'pie...

I intend to. Well, I've no pie, but I do have a lot of coffee.

And I have to use it up. Decision's made - did the numbers out on paper, twice, last night. The Caves have to go. So all my stored goods and winter plans are fruitless - I'm soon to be on the road again.

If any of you are looking for a sturdy (converted Panabode), safe (fish, game, clean water, strong neighbours), executive-grade bolt-hole (check my blog - several hundred photos), I ain't kidding and my e-mail is public. If you've got some cash, I've got the place.

I'm going to go seek solvency deeper in Canada - I saw a decent little house in Ponteix (SK ghost town) for 15K. Fif-teen K. With a decent furnace and in quite good shape. A lick of paint, a fence, perhaps a dog given the deserted neighbourhood, and I could re-create the Caves in a new form out there.

Nice time to become homeless, eh? I know you weren't going to worry about me, but don't anyway - I've got escape plans A-L rotating around in my hairy old head. And a librarian very close to my heart with a four-wheel-drive of her own seems to be figgering into them a lot.

So if you like what you see on the blog and you've got some runaway money, drop me a line. I've got a realtor , but have not yet fixed a price with him. I hope I don't get handed too much of my ass. It is a sweet place. Plus, everything works, the driveway's full of wood, the furniture is actually quite nice and is all available for cheap, including the nice big screen I'm typing this to you on, the dish it's coming through, the speakers my tunes are drifting out of, and the damn computer they're stored in. Everything must go, except the cat. I'll even sell you all my food cheap. I'm only taking my books, my hard drive, and my kitty.

It's a wild world out there. Good thing I like the road.

The Caverns Picdump up top of the sidebar leads to it.

G-damn, whoever buys this will be one happy b*stard. I'm jealous and angry already. Ah well. Perhaps Newfoundland? Bet I can get a cheaaaap place in rural Newfoundland, and I like it there quite a lot. Economically, well, hell, but I can't really work with my body anymore, and my mind needs no economy to support it other than a roof and a sandwich.

LIVERPOOL, England – Obamamania met Beatlemania Thursday, as Liverpool hosted an MTV Europe Music Awards show energized by the city's musical heritage and the U.S. presidential election.

Pink and Kanye West took home prizes — Britney Spears won two — and stars on the stage included Beyonce, Kid Rock and former Beatle Paul McCartney.

But the absent president-elect was given star status, too.

Singer Katy Perry, who hosted the show and also was named best new act, appeared in a dress emblazoned with Obama's face and quipped that "maybe Europeans will love us again now."

Maybe Europeans will love us again?

This is creepy on more levels than I care to waste time on.
I suppose that I should just dismiss this as the prattlings of some bimbette pop star flavor of the day who, in 10 years, will be entirely forgotten until she makes an appearance on Celebrity Rehab detailing her crack addiction and drift into pornographic films.
But I can't.
It just has that neurotically insecure & emotionally needy stench about it that I've come to equate with this nation of finger pointing victims otherwise known as America.
Makes one's gorge rise, it does, it does.
Although, I do see why those vile emoti-cons caught on here, and why folks flock to their imaginary MySpace social networks to play with their imaginary "friends." They...they just wanna be loved.
Aaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwww! How cute!

Geez! This love affair with Obama is like some weird tweener crush. I could be mistaken, but it seems that tweener crushes always end badly.

Then we have the ever lovely Hal Turner, waaaaaaaaay over at the other side of the spectrum, who offers this bit of wisdom:

"As I write it is 11:00 PM on the east coast of the US and all polling places in the United States have closed. Barack Obama has won election as America's 44th President and the first Black man to ever hold that office.

Our nation committed suicide tonight.

America committed national suicide tonight because we turned control of this nation over to inferior people who, in the history of the world, have never created or maintained the kind of advanced nation that we White people created here.

America committed national suicide by allowing millions of illegal aliens and other non-citizens, to vote and get away with it. Again, republicans were afraid to be called racists by demanding enforcement of the law while socialist democrats were willing to lie, cheat and multiple-register ineligible people to steal the election.

The future of America is lost unless . . . . . and this is the only hope . . . . .
the economy is systematically and deliberately sabotaged to cause an economic depression for the next 4 years. Only economic depression would open the electorate up to looking to the GOP again.

If an economic depression does not take place, Republicans will NEVER see majorities in Congress and NEVER occupy the White house.

Regardless of what the economy does, the leadership of the Republican Party must -- MUST -- be viciously, even brutally removed from party power. They have presided over the literal destruction of the GOP.

If I had my way, I would line up the GOP leadership from every city, county and state and cut their heads off. On second thought, that's too much effort for this trash. A bullet for each will do just fine.

In the meantime, those of us who saw this coming will get a few laughs. . . . Uncle Sam has just become Uncle Sambo."

In the post after that one, he calls for subverting the Federal Government. Doesn't say how. Primarily, I suspect, because Hal is bullshitting.
Such a noble fellow is Hal.
While Rome burns he rambles on endlessly about black/brown crime while lying endlessly about invented conspiracies.
But, stick a "nigger" in the White House, and by God, this means war.
For some strange reason, every time I see pudgy Hal babbling on during one of his insufferable YouTube performances, I keep picturing Yosemite Sam.
Too much reefer I suppose.

Here's a lesson for the kiddies;


You never know who'll you'll crash into.

So, we have Obama as Savior or Obama as Satan.
I suspect he's neither.
Just another career politician who knew the value of a good marketing campaign. A guy smart enough to realize what emotional buttons to push to appease a nation of self esteem challenged homicidal maniacs.
He is the political comfort food for a nation of insecure comfort food addicts.
He is the Revolution for people who really don't want to change much.

Shit, Reagan ran his share of illegal wars and Clinton blew up a fucking pharmaceutical plant, but they're okay. I suppose that Reagan did have the good sense to keep the blood spewing confined to Central America, and Clinton, well, he a-pol-o-gized.

"Oops, my bad. I really didn't mean to wipe out all your drug supplies. Oh well!"

I suppose that was the Bushista's big mistake. They did overtly what America has always done in the shadows.

Since our Savior, our Lone Ranger, so to speak, is a "black" guy, does he get to wear a white mask and ride on a black stallion?

I can see it now:

A fiery financial collapse with the speed of light, a cloud of Palin, and a hearty "Hi-Yo, Indigo!" The Lone Ranger! With his faithful Democratic companion, Biden, this well marketed comfort food of the Chicago plains led the fight for keeping us in the dark so we can party guilt-free in the early 21st century.

You may be right.

I don't know.

I do know that the day after Bushy Boy's bail-out plan was first rejected, I had to take a few clients to a local mall near where they live. It is a very upscale mall.
Normally, the parking lot is nearly full all the time.
This day, maybe 10 cars.
I was out and about the day after 911. People were still moving around the ant colony quite nicely.
Shopping, comforting themselves. I've completely lost my train of thought.

Oh well, here's another lesson for the kiddies:

@Dr. B.: Interesting about the physics guy. I never heard of his murder before. Funny how some nameless Facebook victim killed on a bus by a vagrant (well, actually I don't believe a word of it) dominates the news, and the unsolved murder of a scientist involved in potentially world-changing research is, well, just not part of the metastream flowing out of Hollywood's ass.

This article was written in the Western Montana, Flathead Beacon newspaper.

Man Parks Manure Near Democrats Campaign Office (AP), 11-4-2008

Butte - Democrats are criticizing a 38-year-old man who parked a trailer load of manure across the street from Whitehall's Democratic campaign office to protest presidential hopeful Barack Obama.

Terry Reed, who owns a construction and excavation company in Whitehall, parked the trailer near the office on Saturday. He also posted a sign in the manure mocking Obama's "change we can believe in" slogan as "a load of crap."

"I think Obama's plan is just one big old poop sandwich and we're all going to have to take a bite," he said.

Suzanne Molyneaux, the Obama campaign's election team leader in Whitehall, said traffic came to a near standstill as people stopped to take pictures of the trailer.

"People in Whitehall were upset, they were outraged," she said. "I don't think Whitehall should be represented as this podunk, ignorant community. There are lots of good people here."

Reed said he doesn't plan to remove the trailer until after Election Day.

"My only regret is that I didn't do something sooner," he said.
