Vol. 162: Only Days Away; Newtown could be Anytown

     Greetings Ladies and Gentlemen, this is once again Thelonius Ronscpiacy from the outer fringes of an infiltrated society. With the Earth ready to be in direct alignment with the center of the Milky Way galaxy on 12/21/2012 in a once every 26,000 year event, people the world over will be readying themselves in preparation for either the end of the world, or simply the entering into the Age of Aquarius. Whether this will mean the end of civilization as we know it or just another step towards the imposition of a One World Government where everybody will be chipped with a tracking device other than the one we carry in our hands; the latest cellular phone that many of us had to stand in line for hours to purchase. No, we're not crazy. So, for those of you who wish to do some last minute shopping here is a link to a list of things one will need in order to survive the ever-looming Apocalypse or inevitable Fiscal Cliff. http://www.survivetheapocalypse.net/2010/05/18/100-items-to-disappear-first-after-the-apocalypse/

     Thoughts of Outrage:

"Do my eyes yell 'crazy'?"
          1. A week ago there was a mass shooting at a mall in Clackamas, Oregon and of course last Friday, December 14th, 20 school children, between the ages of 6 & 7, and 6 adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, were killed by yet another mentally disturbed 20 year old white adult male who apparently never said a word during the entire time of his demonic possession. It was another senseless, cowardly, and evil act of violence that has left its horrible stain on the lives of Americans. The shooter's mom was supposedly a gun enthusiast (according to the left-leaning media; but that doesn't mean there are a number of school shootings in places like Montana or Wyoming), and was the first of the shooter's targets......as she rested in her bed she was shot multiple times. The shooter then destroyed his computer and hard drive by dropping heavy objects upon it, before he drove to the school to continue to his psychotic rampage; which has led this oftentimes deranged author to speculate, why? Was there evidence of MK-Ultra mind control experiments on his computer? Was it another Manchurian Candidate? And where did that black and white grainy crazy eyes photo of him come from? That can't be a yearbook photo, he was home schooled. According to police reports, the shooter planned on doing much worse with more than 100's of rounds of ammunition that went unused. What has become apparent in this day and age is that there is an inherent need for more attention to be given to combat and treat mental illness as well as to continually look for the warning signs and eliminate the causes if and when at all possible. One thing is clear; we cannot regulate our way out of the horrible cesspool we find ourselves dealing with, and as a result of what seemingly has become normalcy, the horrible massacre has brought with it, is yet another orgiastic feast by all things media (I am no better), thrusting surviving children in front of cameras to answer questions from reporters with microphones as appendages. Which leads to more unsettling questions; are these mass shootings, more than 65 have occurred in the U.S. since Rep. Gabby Giffords was shot in Arizona in 2009, are these mass shootings a result of the relaxation of cultural norms at the expense of the collective of society? Are individuals being granted too much freedom to do and say whatever they want, and they feel they are justified in their right to do so? Sounds almost Luciferian doesn't it? Someone go dig up the bones of John Milton, he's got some questions I'd like him to answer.

          2.  If Leonardo DaVinci had been born in the 1940's and had been a folk singer, he'd be Bob Dylan. If God were a running back, he'd be Adrian Peterson.
          3. Raising the taxes on the top 2% of earners is just a nod to the growing displeasure of the overwhelming class disparity in pay.  The instinctual backlash towards those who have, from those who have not. Sadly, I don't see either side working with each other in Washington, and therefore, a Fiscal Cliff deal will not be made. Instead, both sides will once again point their fingers at each other; Boehner vs. Obama, Mcconnell "the human turtle" vs. Pelosi, and the United States will ironically melt into the sea along with the Fox News denying evidence of climate change melting polar ice in the Arctic.
          4.The United States government has issued another stern warning toward Syria if they were to use chemical weapons on their own people. Syria's scared response was to fire a scud missile at their opposition. Stern warnings work so well. Just take a look at North Korea. Firing rockets into the air like unchaperoned young boys around the 4th of July. Someone is liable to blow a finger off. Or possibly a dangerous explosion in the cab of an Bengal Blue 88' Ford Ranger.......forcing the passenger to then dive out the cab door and into the ditch. It's in the works?
          5. Only the inconsistent Minnesota Vikings can have Adrian Peterson rush for over 200 yards against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau and lose by 9, and then the following week win ugly at home against the Bears; and these guys are getting a new stadium? I'll support it if they land Johnny Football at QB; because in the opinion of this author, Christian isn't gonna save this organization from the lions of the NFL.
    6. How surreal of an experience was it, watching the 3 remaining living members of one of the greatest rock'n'roll bands of all time, Led Zeppelin, on David Letterman 2 weeks ago? It was as if someone dipped my fingers in Timothy Leary quality LSD as I felt the tightening of my stomach from eating too many magic mushrooms, reminiscent of feeding groupies to sharks in Holiday Inn swimming pools. The warm smell of teenage basement gatherings. Then, Jim from The Office had to follow Led Zeppelin. Somewhere in either Heaven or Hell, Jimi Hendrix was laughing about the Monterey Pop Festival of 1967. Pete Townsend is laughing at the irony as well; that and the fact that he's still alive. But really, the title of his autobiography is Who I am?? Then again, it made no sense to this author until his lovely better half pointed it out to him. That's right, he was in the band The Who. Too many trips made in the basement maybe? Light the incense. Speaking of which, only in America, the land of no common-sense, only corporations; in the state of Washington can you now possess up to an oz. of pot if you are over the age of 21. But, you can't grow it, or buy it, so it has to fall from the Heavens like Manna to the Israelites; call it Mannijuana?
          7. Did the Royals murder another person who got in the way of their royal bloodline? The U.K. nurse caring for Princess Kate, who answered the prank phone call from two Australian D.J's, was found dead from an apparent suicide just days later. It is sad and tragic......and of course someone has to be to blame for all of this, but it's not the D.J's. How about blaming the media with their incessant coverage of all things Royal Family? Just a thought, hell blame me, Thelonius Ronscpiacy. The more you dig into the nefarious dealings of the people in power, the scarier it all becomes. I feel like David Ferrie in  Oliver Stone's magnum opus, JFK.
8. The cost of shipping two stuffed animals and two children's books, making sure that they are to be received by Christmas day, thanks to the good profitable people at UPS, $60?!!! UPS is going strong, the United States Postal Service is going bankrupt, because unlike UPS, the United States Postal Service isn't butt-raping their customers.
          9. After having just finished reading a brilliant book, Life of Pi, and recently having seen the genius of a film by filmmaker Ang Lee, I have found that the central theme throughout both works of art, is that there are basically two ways to view one's life. One can either choose to see things as having both meaning and a deeper purpose, or one can simply choose to see things as mere chance coincidence. In the end, each one of us gets opportunities, throughout our lives' to choose which way we will live our lives. Now, if only we could find a better way out of traffic jams due to winter storms of wet snow coating highways with a layer of ice filled chaos and extremely slow driving. Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and long live Festivus. Here's to hoping we make it through the end of the world cosmic changes of the Mayan calendar, and the looming fiscal cliff.
Just a little more live Europe for you. Joey Tempest and the boys still bring it.

Vol.161: Red Light, Green Light

Did your Thanksgiving Dinner guests look like these people? Add some skinny jeans and some bicycles, and you can see them all at Grumpy's in Nordeast.
     Greetings from Thelonius Ronscpiacy,

     A couple of weeks ago, I watched the film Red Lights. It was a major studio release this past summer that didn't get too many favorable reviews, which starred the once incomparable Robert Deniro as the character Simon Silver, a medium of extraordinary powers. The exact opposite of the Robert Deniro who in recent years hasn't been in a decent film since Casino in the mid 90's. Like all artists I suppose, they have their peak years and then they have their valleys where they just receive paychecks. The film's subject matter was what may be considered to be on the fringe of science and skepticism, sort of like denying that there is something drastically wrong with climate change, ie; Arctic Ice melt the size of the U.S in the past year. The film dealt with seances and mediums and the dismissal of miracles. What Sigourney Weaver's character in the film called "discordant notes." The "red lights" are the little oddities, the slight and singular differences we experience in our lives and rarely take notice of or for that matter, most of the time, take for granted.
     I start with this because I believe we experience the phenomenon all of the time and maybe it's my job to bring those things to light. To drag them kicking and screaming out from the dusty cobwebbed corners of the recesses of our collective subconscious and expose them for what they really are, subjects, topics, moments worth further investigation; ie; the Fiscal Cliff that looms over the shoulder of the madness of Black Friday. The Gaza ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, hoping that it will last longer than a Kim Kardashian marriage, even though the military exercises for Israel seemed to be nothing more than preparing for the inevitable between themselves and Iran. Egypt has a new Pharaoh in town, and his name is Morsy; not the emo-British crooner, although to some in the Muslim world, that may be worse. As result, the Tahrir Square is looking once again like a riotous diplomatic version of New Years New York's Time Square, minus Ryan Seacrest, the alcohol and corporate sponsors. Then there is Susan Rice, the U.S Ambassador to the U.N who was shockingly mislead by intelligence given to her by the CIA; I know, can you believe it? The CIA playing mind games, or maybe Petraeus's hands were tied at the time while Paula Broadwell read to him Fifty Shades of Grey?  Did you know, that the White House's pick to replace Mrs. Clinton as Secretary of State, Susan Rice, has millions invested in Canadian energy companies, companies that would gain handsomely if the XL Keystone Pipeline is built, and would only be built if whomever was Secretary of State at that time signed off on it? Once again, I'm not making this up. How convenient it would be for Ms. Rice. Then again, it's all just coincidence. Right? Or is it?
     Another sign that we may be living in the last moments of human civilization and from what I would gather has biblical scholars the world over, scratching their heads and readying their panic-rooms and bomb shelters, is the fact that on 11/28/12 in front of the U.N, Palestinians made a bid for a status upgrade to become a recognized state. They don't recognize the state of Israel, but they want to be recognized? If only to bring crimes of humanity against their Jewish neighbors. Oh, the middle-east, such a peaceful vacation destination. I'm surprised Disney hasn't opened a theme-park there. Think of the tourism.
     God definitely has a sick sense of humor. Three major religions have the exact same city as their gateway to the divine, and no, it's not Las Vegas. It's all just coincidence. These are just some of the recent "red lights" worth investigating. 
     Then there are the four legs of the table that are holding the brittle financial world a float, before the table-cloth is magically pulled out from under our enormously packed American sized plates, according to many Economists, which is just another name for "paid guessers," are Housing, Europe, China and Oil Prices. Which leads me to ask, what is the next big race? We've had the Space Race, the Arms Race, the Amazing Race, but what's next? The Face Race? A mad run for all things cosmetic surgery related, or are we already there? See magazine stand at nearest check-out aisle. But, I digress.
"I'm Sexy and I know it." Now that's Gangnam Style!
     Our ever expanding global economy brought yet another glad tiding of its promise in the horrible and terrible tragic results of a massive garment factory fire in Bangladesh in recent weeks. The fire killed more than a 100 meagerly paid workers who had no way of escape, being that there wasn't a proper fire exit readily available for them. Instead, many chose to jump out of windows to their death while others were burnt alive; all so companies can mass produce clothing brought to you by Puff Daddy aka Sean Combs......ironically they all went up in a "puff" of smoke. I'm not making this up. How much coverage did this horrible event gather in the U.S media? Oh, that's right, why bring the truth of our futile efforts at happiness through a consumer oriented society to light when we are in the midst of our Moloch inducing Holiday season. Just feed the beast more children. Appease its appetite with the young and uneducated. The world takes to the streets in protest of draconian austerity measures, the U.S takes to the malls to go shopping.
     How dumb and uniformed is the North Korean regime these days? They bought the gag brought about by The Onion that Kim Jong-Un is the World's Sexiest Man.  

    On another note, we are only years away from being driven automatically by self-driving vehicles. Google has already driven over 300k miles in a self-driving vehicle with the help of 3-D cameras and GPS satellites. Think of it, no more sober-cabs. No more worries about how you're going to get home from the office holiday party. Nope, those days are over. Instead, your boss and upper management will find more time and more work for you to do on your daily commute into and away from the office each day. More time to text, to check email and work on spreadsheets. Awwwww, the American Dream. Or if you are being chased by the goons of the military industrial complex on a dream vacation trip to Mars, you may experience the annoying blow-back of technological advances in your face. So, in closing, when you do see "red lights" and the little light in your head goes off, enjoy it, observe it and take it all in. Find the deeper meaning in these little blips on your radar as you find yourself so easily distracted, confused and annoyed. These and hopefully this blog and its' moments unlike the film Red Lights, are worth reading and watching. So, do yourself a favor and save your time, save yourself.

Dear Outrage,

Democratic compassion = the amount of people that get stuff.  We’ve reached the proverbial tipping point.  More people getting a handout than aren’t means America will continue to vote in democrats until our demise.

Just look at California, they have billions and billions of debt and they vote in a liberal super majority.  This will be very instructive for us to see, however the liberals will be blinded by blaming everyone but themselves.


Double T of the GOP

Thank you for your time, patience and consideration.

A little more Arnold before you go. Enjoy.

Vol. 160: Will Wonders Never Cease??

     World War III may well have started on 9/11/01. But did you know, exactly ten years to the day, before that never to be forgotten date that started the War on Terror, is when then President George H. W. Bush gave his "New World Order" address to Congress. Maybe, it's all just coincidence?? Or is it?
     On 9/11/01 four hijacked planes by 18-19 men of Saudi Arabian origin, armed with box-cutters, commanded from a man in a cave, crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon (of which, all anyone has ever seen of a plane hitting, is just 4 frames of grainy film) and a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Immediately, the United States Military apparatus and intelligentsia stated that it must have been their one time ally against the Soviets, Osama Bin Laden. They couldn't stop it, but yet they knew immediately who did it. This from the same powers that took 8 years to get the supposed mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed to confess in Guantanamo. I thought terrorists loved taking credit for what they did? That's why they made suicide tapes, right?
     What followed was perhaps blue-printed long ago. The Patriot Act was immediately passed and enforced. Only two U.S Senators voted against it and one of them ended up dead in a plane crash one year later, Paul Wellstone. Was that a message sent to detractors? We then invaded Afghanistan to get rid of the Taliban, the same organization funded by the United States military to oppose the Soviets when they were our cold-war enemy, and then we invaded Iraq to rid Saddam Hussein of WMD's that we most probably gave him to fight Iran. We know what has happened since.
     Now, after the Arab Spring and the rapid spread of chaotic forms of Democracy rampant throughout the Middle East, the breaking point may have just been reached. The Israeli Defense Forces assassinated the military leader of Hamas (considered a terrorist organization by Israel/ but if you are a Palestinian you would think otherwise) and Hamas responded with a statement that Israel may have just "opened the gates of hell." Israel has called up 75,000 troops for a possible ground offensive into Gaza. Stay tuned for more developments, but it all plays eerily into the 12/21/12 end date? With much knowledge, comes much suffering. Ignorance is bliss. But then, why are so many Americans on anti-depressants?

     On Tuesday, November 13th a total solar eclipse took place, mostly visible from the coasts of Australia, but we as Americans have been experiencing an eclipse of a different sort, and that's been in the form of the media coverage of the ever intriguing, ever deepening webs of interwoven emails and correspondences in the feet beneath the desks of now former CIA Director David Petraeus, the once golden-boy of the military establishment who has been brought low by his inability to keep his hands to himself, and off of his biographer Paula Broadwell.  As a result, the FBI has also searched the Charlotte, North Carolina home of Ms. Broadwell. The mess just seems to spread like a toxic spill out of a BP oil rig. Apparently the US General Commander of troops in Afghanistan John Allen is involved in all of this as a result of email correspondence that he had developed with a Florida socialite by the name of Jill Kelley.

Like a bad story out of high school, Ms. Broadwell got wind of emails sent by Jill Kelley to CIA Director David Petraeus, and like a lover scorned, sent harassing emails to Ms. Kelley, all of which set off a chain reaction that has kept the media spinning their wheels ever since trying to play catch up.
     Will wonders never cease? The head of the CIA couldn't keep a secret. You can't make this stuff up. The former commander of the "surge" in Iraq and Afghanistan has had a extra-marital affair end his career. Bill Clinton knows how that feels, but then again, he's got Hillary and his daughter Chelsea to pick up where he left off. But oh, how the mighty are brought so low, and so quickly.
     This all leads to the million dollar question, and that is, "When did the White House know?" In all probability they did know, long before election day came and went. I know that the CIA director's personal life has no real bearing on politics, but you have to imagine it would have played a factor in the results of the Presidential election. Another central issue at the heart of the matter is also that concerning the terrorist attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/12, and what possible prior knowledge of an imminent attack was shelved?? So, if they can go through the emails of the director of the CIA, I have to imagine, mine as well as any of yours is fair game as well; that is the most scary and pressing issue at heart. Now ask yourself, do we live in a National Security State? Please see Mr. George Orwell for further questions.
     As a result of the aforementioned messes, little attention was paid by the American media establishment over the mass protests in the European Union over austerity measures and rising unemployment numbers. Instead we get dire concerns over "5-hour Energy" drinks, because that is some scary scary stuff!!! And only two states passed legislation to legalize the recreational use of marijuana on November 6th; Washington and Colorado?? When was the last time someone died as a result of an overdose of marijuana? That's right, never. Good thing the FDA allows numerous supplies of energy drinks readily available to the masses. But that's not the only interesting thing coming out of the air in Colorado. There have been numerous sightings of UFOs over the Denver area in the last couple of weeks, and all occurring between the hours of noon and one in the afternoon. But none sighted in the late hours of the evening when the munchies usually strike? Interesting. Maybe the legalization has already taken effect?? Or has it?

7 Men that Rule 1/5th of the World's population
     Another world changing event has been taking place over the last couple of weeks, and that has been the 10 year regime change rotation of the new heads of the Chinese Communist Party. All one needed to see was the number of press correspondents at the unveiling on Thursday, noon Bejing time, November 15th to see how important China's role in the world has become. There was what looked to be a thousand members of the press crowded into rows a long rectangular shape airplane hangar, seven rows deep to cover the spectacle.

     Has anyone noticed that there are quite a number of high level officials and CEO's resigning or leaving office unexpectedly, or is it just me? Where are they going and why are they so eager to leave? Do they know something that we don't? Or is just the normal happenings of year end changes?
     The man who gets weasel of the week is former Connecticut Light and Power's CEO who couldn't stand the pressure after Hurricane Sandy and resigned. Maybe he too, wanted to have his "life back" like BP's Tony Hayward? Proof once again that most of these weasels only get to where they are by things other than common sense and decency.
     Finally, for all of those in the GOP who have found their foundations shaken to the core, take this song to heart. There is still the fiscal battle to fight. And for those of you worried about the possible end of the world; in order for one thing to begin, something else must end. Growth in an economy cannot go on forever. Sooner or later, everything has its limits.

Vol. 159: The Mornings After

     Wipe the sleep from your eyes and the realisation that you may have woken up, next to someone you wish you hadn't. I of course am speaking of the results from Election night. The Ohio States of America election gave us the results some of us longed for. For others, the results from last Tuesday's election may be causing nightmares. There may be many more sleepless nights to come. In the end, it took an election to tell us that we don't really have too popular of a President.  Somewhere, George W. Bush is grinning like a son of a...............

     Who would've thought Obama would win because of the economy? Or was it Hurricane Sandy? Or was it the lack of a genuine Romney? Or was it all that "legitimate rape" going around. There isn't much Bird Flu this year. How do you explain it?  It almost felt like 2004 all over again. Flip the parties over and replace John Kerry with Mitt Romney and it was as if there wasn't an actual opponent. Just a cardboard cutout that looked Presidential. His arms moved, he smiled and he walked around. What happened? Que the song "Everybody Knows" by Leonard Cohen. 
     Then again, Obama must have stronger blood-ties to the British Royal family than Mitt Romney. They don't get to these positions based on good public speaking. George W. Bush and Mark Dayton could tell you that.  The GOP leaders must be scratching their tired bald greying heads and asking themselves, "How did we not win this thing? Somebody, anybody, put a pillow over Chris Christie's head?! How did we let that Fred Flintstone of a Governor give a bear-hug to Obama?! And that close to the election?!? Can you believe four more years of an African-American telling us what to do?!"
To those angry at the results, you have another four years of trying everything possible to get nothing done, and to those grinning from ear to ear, the Obama re-election won't mean a thing if Congress continues its path of worthlessness. But hey, at least we have someone to drive the car off the Fiscal Cliff. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

     I actually thought there was the slimmest of chances that the election could have been postponed due to the State of Emergency that became Perfect Storm Sandy. They had to postpone/cancel the NYC Marathon after what would've been a public relations nightmare. Now the poor, angry, and often times caricatured rude people of New York and New Jersey have to deal with a Nor'easter, and that's not a bunch of drunks on a pedal pub either.

     But, instead, we woke up on Wednesday morning to the beautiful chance of marijuana finally being legal for recreational use in Colorado and Washington; but, that's of course before the Federal Government steps in, and what may have to result in a case reaching corrupt steps of the Supreme Court; ie., Citizens United. So, here we go again. The lawyers will be the ones getting richer, but thank God, the "hanging-chad," didn't rear his ugly head.  Fortunately, the never ending tour of campaign season has come to an end and so we get a brief respite of one and half years, until the next one starts all-over again. You hear that Koch brothers, start saving your money. You may actually get to buy the next one.

     So, ladies and gentlemen, on a final note, the Revolution is coming. Mark it on your calendars and start preparing your bomb shelters. On November 13th, 2012 the continuing birth pangs are going to become more noticeable. There is definitely something stirring in the air, and no, it's not the sweet smelling air coming in from Colorado and Washington; we couldn't be so lucky. The upheaval, the riots, the turbulence of tumult is twisting and tightening its grip faster than the United States heading towards the Fiscal Cliff. Or faster than my little man Kanaan coming towards you in Northern Wisconsin. We've been warned. Everything that's happening is happening all over again.

Vol. 158: Hurricane Sandy and Halloween

     With Halloween barrelling down upon us, it's the time of fear and talking to the dead, but let's not get side-tracked with mundane political ads. The super-storm that is Hurricane Sandy is causing death, destruction, flooding and power loss up and down the east-coast. As of Tuesday evening, 8.2 million people were without power. 50 million people are affected. 48 deaths have been attributed to Sandy's wrath. With it, the President has one more opportunity to act Presidential before the election and the Republican Mitt Romney's campaign team is either pulling their hair out or thanking their lucky stars for their backroom ties to electronic voting machines in Ohio. The scenario is this: in less than a week, a Mormon may be our new President. We've only had one Catholic president and they blew his brains out all over Dallas on a cold Friday afternoon in November. What will happen to a Mormon? The intrigue, the drama; it's like trying to get a non-Mormon snuck inside the tabernacle in Salt Lake City. Or is it? Will it even matter anyway? With only a month and a couple of weeks away from the great Cosmic Change that is December 21st, 2012, does any of this even matter?
And why did Barack Obama vote on October 25th; the earliest any President has ever voted during a Presidential election before? Did he or does he know something that we don't? Maybe Obama has a secret control of the weather? According to his detractors, he probably does, being a Kenyan. You know how that African voodoo works.  Or, maybe that's what he's been doing with all of those Drone attacks? Drone attacks you say? Yep. Drone attacks. From the desk of proud liberal Dennis Kucinich, a recent Washington Post article contains an unsettling confirmation of what many of us have feared for years; the United States is establishing state-sponsored murder as a permanent condition of foreign policy.
“Three hundred fifty drone strikes by the U.S. have killed as many as 3,378 people including as many as 885 civilians, including women and children. Our drone strikes create sympathy for our enemies among the populations we bomb. Numerous academic reports have detailed that our policies are counterproductive and lead to increased radicalization."
     On another intriguing note, did you know, that according to the New York Times, the Premier of China,  Wen Jiabao and his family have amassed assets totaling over 3 billion dollars during his reign. Now that's a job with some fringe benefits or should I say, "entitlements?"The Chinese government was so pleased with the story that they immediately closed online access to the New York Times. With the rising fumes of disgust growing ever present in China, the rattling roaring call for reforms is almost deafening. Great Cosmic Change!!! 2012?!

     I've heard the sound of the Apocalypse, and it's name is Phillip Phillips. I heard his song "Home" on the radio while driving with my lovely wife and the feeling of nauseaousness overtook me. How clear a rip-off of the Mumford sound, milking the cash-cow, there couldn't be. Phillip Phillips? Really? I'm Jack Jacks. Or Steve Steve's. Just another sign that maybe the end wouldn't be so bad. Phillip Phillips? Laughable, but then again, he'll make his money and move on. Or should I say, the record company. Remember James Blunt? Yep. And that's not because of short term memory loss.

     Just in time for Halloween, there's a serial killer highway-shooter in Detroit, who's been picking off people on I-96 for the last couple of weeks since October 16th. Maybe he should've aimed at the Detroit Tigers and saved them all a bunch of trouble. The Detroit Tigers just may have bene the Barack Obama of the World Series this year. A good run, but had too much hype to live up to. It was sad to see a professional baseball team get so thoroughly outplayed. It's like they were playing in Denver, during the first debate and they just stood there. Vacant and lifeless. But hell, that could be Congress.

     During the plague in Europe, the plague killed 1 in 3. Now 1 in 3 will get cancer. Coincidence? Or simply different symptoms.

     Ahhhh, Halloween. The history, the tradition, the return to more overt forms of capitalist paganism consuming overabundant amounts of candy and memories from blizzards of yesteryear are ringing the inner sanctum of my nostalgic mind. Which leads me to our current embrace of witches in the present days; it is pleasing and at the same time disturbing. Just ask anyone in Michelle Bachmann's district.

Terrorists are the only crazy ones?
     Because, historically, witches are the true counter-culture agents. They've been allegedly known to have extraordinary supernatural powers. They've come in the forms of the enchantress, the sorceress, the woman out of control. The bibilical Lillith with long red hair, practicing cannibalism and infanticide.What's not to love?  Minus the eating of children of course. Except for the red hair, "Is that you Michelle?" But seriously, witches strike up the power of suggestion, the power of the imagination. The power of belief. How else did the benign wise women of the pagan past turn into the malevolent figures of the evil Witch? Instead, they've become women with a lustful insatiable appetite for power. The Kardashians? Snooky? Hilary? How else do you explain it? During the "burning times" in Europe when the Inquisition was rounding up heretics, like Sean Hannity rounding up "great Americans," there were towns in Germany where there weren't any women left. Maybe Todd Akin and the rest of his GOP pals would love it? But then again, who would they legitimately rape? Each other? They already have that on their Saturday night agendas. Speaking of Saturdays, during one Saturday in the Middle Age in a town in Germany, 139 people were burned at the stake. Now I know, from where Dick Cheney's hatred hath spawned. So, maybe instead, we should all try to live the witches creed, "Do what thou wilt, but harm no one."

It's easier said than done.

Vol: 157: Curiosity and Wisdom

We have them over a barrel, don't we?

Another week, another mass shooting. Another disgruntled ex-husband who's only answer to the losing state of his failed life is to end the lives of others with a gun. Welcome to the world we live in. What happened to just committing suicide? Why do all these losers have to take people with them? Sad. Sad. Sad.

Then there was the 4th and Final debate of the Presidential Election. Foreign Policy was the topic and we discovered from Mitt that "we can't kill our way out of this mess." That's wisdom; I think the Buddha said that.
Does anyone know where Mali is?

Obama has begun to sound like a man who's afraid of his opponent, even though he had the zinger, "the 1980's called, and they want their Foreign Policy back."  Maybe with the whole debacle of the Benghazi, Libya "terrorist attack" coming to light, I can't help scratching my head as to why the Obama administration wouldn't have labeled it a "terrorist attack" from the start. It makes absolutely no sense, unless there was somebody inside the embassy that they wanted dead? Then again, since when have politicians made any sense? With both of the candidates having the same tired answers and phrases from the previous debates, the tie goes to Syria. Or maybe Iran? Iran may have a shot. What with those crippling economic sanctions. Those tightening sanctions. Sexy tightening sanctions. That's how you win over friends. Why build a bomb? The crippling sanctions have made us see the light. Then again, nobody with the bomb has been bombed by the U.S. Why not build a bomb? Just saying.

 The 100 year old charter of the Federal Reserve is up in 2013. Not 2012. 2013. Coincidence? It's like they knew something was coming.

You'd trust this guy with your money right?
The European Central Bank will be overlooking all Euro zone banks. Whew. Now that we have that settled, we can rest knowing that nothing will cause further panic to grip the Euro zone. They have the European Central Bank to play watchdog. I have a scratching question and that is, what is the reason for the inevitable push towards a one-world-currency? Less people to bribe? Meanwhile, the Rothschild's grip tightens around the throat of Europe.

"I don't look like a pedophile, do I?"
First the Catholic Church, and now the Boy Scouts? It's sad, sick and twisted to think that we can't trust anyone with our young boys? What's next, the Girl Scouts running a prostitution ring? Now there's word that a long time host of a popular variety show on the BBC, The Jimmy Savile show, it's main star, Jimmy Savile was sexually abusing young boys and girls for years; boys and girls who were guests on the show?!? And for years, the BBC just covered it up. Disgusting. Repulsive. Criminal.
A news story with a coincidental tinge has just been announced a couple of days ago; scientists from Stanford have been running experiments with mice; performing dialysis by switching out the old blood with new younger mice blood into older mice, and surprise!! The mice live longer and their brains function at 20% increased capacity. Now we know why all of those milk-carton kids have vanished. Dick Cheney, were on to you. You and the rest of your buddies, blood sucking vampires. Myths come from somewhere, and there are truths hidden in fairy tales. They just don't appear out of thin-air.

Speaking of thin air, On October 20th, there were mass sightings of UFO's in Dallas, Texas and the U.K. Are we being prepped for December 21st?
Take a look for yourself. Maybe their just the Devil's way of leading us away from God? I don't know. But it is pretty weird.

OVNIS en Dallas Texas UFO Activity Downtown Dallas


Finally, when you think of the 1990's, musically, what certain songs come to mind? Does "Champagne Supernova" roam down your hallway? Does Kurt Cobain and his band mates riffs echo through? Is it Pearl Jam's "Black"? These are side bar research questions. Why may ask? Because the United States cinema viewing public is in drastic need of a new American Graffiti or Dazed and Confused. I am also curious to know which songs will most certainly be played at your funeral? If the world is going to be coming to an end shortly, we need to come up with a play list, fast.

We are finding ourselves in the Age of Aquarius and entering the 5th dimension of reality. Those who are prepared will find the transition cumbersome, but not too difficult as to be fruitless. Those stuck with the materialism of the 3rd dimension; well, you can already hear their subconscious screams of agony amongst their silent obedience to the herd mentality. Republicans and Democrats, Republicans and Democrats. Baaaahhhhhhh.

It's all going according to plan. Trust me.

Vol 156: Politics as Usual: Binders full of Women

     Good morning, good afternoon and good evening ladies and gentlemen. I am writing you this under heavy surveillance in deep cover from a hideout along the banks of the Mississippi river. So, I will get right to the issues, they are gaining on me.
     A day before the 2nd Presidential debate, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a bullet for the White House for the lack of security detail during the Benghazi, Libya terrorist attack on the U.S. Embassy where 4 Americans lost their lives, including our Ambassador. The timing of Hillary's willingness to take a bullet is only mere coincidence. Apologies for the bad taste in words. It is tragic and my sympathy to the families. But don't try to read anything into it, there is no coincidence in the timing. It's laughable how obvious politicians can be.
     Now, let me get to the meat and potatoes of this edition. In what seasoned political reporter George Will called "the best debate ever," it's heartbreaking and encouraging at the same time, to see two grown men fighting over a job like schoolboys fighting over who gets to bat first in a game of home run derby on the playground during recess. According to Obama, "it's offensive," to think that his administration is playing politics with the Benghazi attack. But, when hasn't any politician played politics with any issue? That's why they call it politics.

"He's wrong, I'm right, and there's no one left."

     The two grown men, at least they appear to look that way, decided to fight over who can guarantee to grow jobs over the next 4 years. Grow jobs. Like they're an organic material that can be sprinkled with fairy dust in the garden wasteland that is the U.S. economy and shazaaam! Jobs. Romney has a "5 Point Plan," to create 12 million new jobs. Reminded me of "no new taxes," from George H. W. Bush.  I still have no idea what Obama's plan is for the next 4 years either. So, we have that going for us. Ladies and gentlemen, it doesn't look good right now. I know that the Koch brothers of Wisconsin are warning their 45k employees that they better vote Republican, or else. Think of the Koch brothers as toxic pollutants that work on command, killing any consideration for their employees to think for themselves. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. Maybe they play by the golden rule? They who have the gold, make the rules.

     Then there was the mention of the fact that there wasn't enough drilling for oil on federal land. Not enough drilling on federal land. What does that mean? Should we open up the Grand Canyon for more drilling? But wait, "You'll get your chance when I finish." Once again, I was left scratching my head as to what exactly are going to be the tax deductions and exemptions that good Ol' Mitt (don't call me Willard) is going to eliminate? That is still to be determined. Maybe we'll get the information when he's finished; reminiscent of the final scene in There Will Be Blood as Daniel Plainview, played by Daniel Day-Lewis yells, "I'm Finished."

     The debate got to a point where the tension was so thick, I strangely wondered, what if Romney would've muttered the N-word? Sadly, I felt some would've cheered that remark, which goes to prove if only to myself, that there are demons this country or I am still yet to exorcise. Or maybe it was because I have grown tired of hearing how we've been "crushed and buried" throughout the evening? Maybe I was simply waiting to go through "binders full of women?" Maybe it was because my Dad wasn't "born in Mexico to American parents" that I felt cheapened. Maybe we really need to trust the idea of "self-deportation?" Raise your hand if you're here illegally. Nobody? Alright, we can move on.
Now, which one's Spartacus?

On another note, it's a good thing Obama saved us all from cheap Chinese tires!!
     To the heartbreak of millions of Republicans, Romney did let slip through his fingers the opportunity to drag Obama from behind the sad and tragic debacle that became the Benghazi, Libya situation. He should have belted that out of the park, but sadly struck out like A-Rod in the post-season. Too much oil in his hair; slippery fingers. Which lead us to the enemy behind the whole evening, the smoking dragon in the cave, the shadowy lurking figures of darkness who are truly behind the mess we as Americans have been experiencing for the last 10, 15, 20, 25 years......China. We aren't at war anymore with the USSR and the War on Terror hasn't been too exciting without it's leading man Bin-Laden crouching in the desert firing AK-47's as his henchmen run through jungle-gym equipment, and God forbid we should actually take responsibility for our actions. We have Congress to do that for us. They get stuff done.
     The enemy of America is China. Yep, the same country that buys all of our Treasury Bills; them and the Federal Reserve; but, you'll never hear a hand-picked goon like Obama or Romney trash the Fed. They know who writes the checks. It's not that they just print more money out of QE3 thin air or anything of significance like that. Ssshhhhh, be very quiet. The Fed is always listening. The Fed isn't to blame in any of this. Allen Greenspan was always doing what was best for the American people. Ben Bernanke can be trusted. No, no, no, it's China and their currency manipulation that is and has ruined this country. So, look out China. We're going to be scolding you in the final debate, big time. So bend over and take your spanking, but just don't take any of it seriously; trust us, because the check's going to be coming in the mail. You'll get your money back. But according to the USPS, it may be a while. Were fixing a few kinks in there.

     At the end of it all, wouldn't it have been nice to see either Obama or Romney, or both, strike a Tebow-pose. Until next time, keep on prospering in the new global economy.

It is 2012. The end is near.

Vol.155: Politics, Pop Culture and the new Mumford

     Good morning ladies and gentlemen, good morning. I am a new writer with the GOEM and I'm writing this in hopes that it entertains and enlightens. It has been another busy week filled with the highs and lows of morality and repugnance. It has been a week filled with Politics. The two seem to go hand in hand don't they, and especially in the stretch run of a Presidential Election the stench can be overpowering; we love to gawk at car crashes.
     So, I will begin with last evening, Thursday the 11th of October, 2012. The scene, Centre College in Danville, Kentucky; the stage for the only Vice Presidential debate, between Uncle Joe Biden and Paul "the Raccoon" Ryan. I wish that one of the campaigns would come up with a plan to eliminate aging and illness, as that would be an easier, less complicated, less-mind-numbingly boring fix than the numbers and percentages that were being sprayed about through their venomous spittle last evening when Uncle Joe wasn't interrupting the Raccoon or when the Raccoon wasn't trying to playing Mouse to Biden's ol'Cat.
     The first question of the evening lobbed over the fence of debate decorum was on the subject of Libya and the terrorist attack that took place on the 11 year anniversary of 9/11. Uncle Joe said that they will investigate "wherever the facts lead us." It was obvious to the present administration that the reasons behind the terrorist's successful killing of 4 Americans, including a U.S Ambassador was due to a failure in the "intelligence community."  Failure due to lack of awareness in the intelligence community? Or simply a lack of intelligence in the community? News has come to light that the present administration had prior knowledge of a possible attack on the embassy in Benghazi. How could they have let it happen? Failure in intelligence they say.
     I however believe, that once again the attacks are being used by the present administration to lead us into another military confrontation in the Middle East. Benghazi for all we know is another False Flag attack, i.e; Pearl Harbor, Gulf of Tonkin and most likely, 9/11. It, like the drumbeats for war against Iran, is nothing more than a manufactured False Flag attack, in order to manufacture homeland support for the escalation of military intervention in the Middle East, i.e; Syria, Iran and which would inevitably lead into Jerusalem. I also suspect that the release of the upcoming Ben Affleck directed film ARGO, is nothing more than the subliminal propaganda of the powers that be to get the American people to support a military resolution in opposition to Iran's supposed goal of a nuclear weapon. Movie scripts sit on the shelves for years in Hollywood before they are made into motion pictures, and when they need to roll out support for something, they get a talented stooge to do their bidding unknowingly. They couldn't get Spielberg to do it, because it would've looked too obvious that Israel was behind it; trust me, there is nothing that Bibi Netanyahu would like more, than for the U.S. to continue to support Israel in a military defense of Jerusalem while he expands Israeli settlements.
     Earlier in the week, Mitt Romney said that "Obama hasn't done enough to eliminate turmoil in the Middle East." The last time I checked, no one has been able to do that, ever! Somebody should have told that to Jesus and Mohammed. I think that they use to work for Bain Capital, but then had to be let go and find freelance work on their own; times were tough. Then again, I don't think the two of them ever paid taxes, so they must have been part of the 47%. Someone must have forgotten to tell the Romney/Ryan ticket that they weren't included in their "3 bottom lines" that they have in their platform. 3 bottom lines? What does that mean? It's really really really highlighted and important. We underlined it 3 times; I can't make this stuff up.
     What are the specifics on the elimination of tax deductions in order to close the deficit Mr. Raccoon? We the American people, still don't know what those plan to be. Sometime during the debate, I found myself wishing a crowd member would have thrown an American flag onto the stage to see which candidate would be able to wrap both arms and legs around it and writhe on the ground like a dog in heat. All the while "the unraveling of America" is occurring right before our very eyes. But sadly, it's not just America. It's Americans as well in the shape of one time heroes. For example, Lance Armstrong may just be another in the long line, of win at any costs hypocrites, whom allegedly had cheated to win the Tours De France 7 times. 7 times! It's just another example of our culture of systemic cheating at any cost. Our short term memories are disgusted and then move on. What else is on the television? It was the lead story on the BBC America news on Tuesday evening. Not a word about the Libor Rate scandal. Libor. Look it up when you have the time. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-08-27/libor-s-trillion-dollar-question.html It's no big deal, just trillions of dollars that were manipulated by the Banksters in England. Let's focus on Lance Armstrong instead; but has our American mainstream free press mentioned much about it? Nope. The math is too complicated. Ohhhhh, shiny new I-Phones!!
     Then, there's the thugs, the idiots, the murderers that call themselves the Taliban in Pakistan, who feel threatened by women with an education. So, they decided to shoot a 14 year old girl named Malala in the head, because she was an outspoken supporter of education for girls. Despicable. Cowardly and insane are these Islamic Fundamentalists, or Fundamentalists of any sort who feel threatened by progress and education. It's sad. Really, really sad.
     In China, you can go to a new fancy restaurant, and eat while sitting on a toilet, while eating out of a miniature sink or bath tub; which leads to me think, I don't want to know what they're eating. Ahhhhh. It reminds me of Kramer in Seinfeld installing a garbage disposal in his shower. "Come on Clarkmen!?" Some progress and some regress. To each their own, just don't kill anybody over it. Please.
     Then there is a CEO in Florida who is threatening to close down his business if Obama gets re-elected and is therefore urging his employees to vote for Romney. There has to be a law against this sort of behavior, but then again, it's one man's freedom of speech and we all know how the Supreme Court feels about Corporations; i.e; Citizens United ruling: Corporations are People. That's where we are as a country and a world in a nutshell.
     Which finally leads me to ask, where has all of the quicksand gone? It used to be all over in the television shows in the 70's and 80's, and now, it's nowhere to be found. Maybe it's because most of the middle class is stuck in it, and the need to put it on television would be like trying to get a politician to be honest; pointless. Maybe it's been replaced instead with our love affair with zombies. What does that say about our culture? Do we see ourselves as brain-dead, greedy, hungry and dead-inside just stumbling through our lives from one chaotic scene to the next? I hope not. There is the 8th Annual Zombie Pub Crawl this weekend; and remember, we are in 2012. The cycle of upheaval and massive cosmic change is shifting under our feet as I speak. There are tornado storms on the surface of our Sun the size of the state of Texas!!! All of that energy has to go somewhere, and believe me, it's coming.

Mumford and Sons: Babel

Three Chords and (an Inconvenient) Truth

Chris Hammes                             

  “I really fucked it up this time, didn’t I my dear?”  That line is of course from, “Little Lion Man”, the single that made Mumford and Sons a mainstay on college and alternative stations since Sigh No More debuted in 2009.  It would also be fitting criticism for the bands’ sophomore attempt, Babel, which is also the name of the title track.  Everything that sounded unique and fresh about “Little Lion Man” sounds repetitive on this go-around.  Almost without exception the songs follow the rock formula that Nirvana made famous two decades ago, Quiet/Loud/Quiet.  Scream-folk if you will. Unlike the Mighty K.C. however, Marcus Mumford is unwilling or unable to use his voice as the instrument lacking in the bands lackluster arrangements.  Perhaps it’s my untrained American ear, but Mumford has the musical range that William Shatner brings to acting roles.  The depressing nature of his lyrics, combined with his monotonous delivery, made for the musical equivalent of sitting next to a freshly divorced drunk guy at the bar.  You want to hear him out, you know he’s hurting, but you want to yell at him “Get over it, buddy.”

            “I Will Wait,” the first single from the album, is (big surprise) one of the albums stronger songs.  Obvious reasons abound for releasing your best song as a single first, but the advent of musical piracy was fueled undoubtedly by one-hit wonder containing albums.  What bothers me about “I Will Wait,” however, is that it’s not indicative of the other songs on the album.  “I Will Wait” has an upbeat, jangly, banjo-driven beat that will get the feet moving, and the harmonic singing of the verses is a perfect counterpoint to the gospel like way Mumford sings the chorus of “I Will Wait.”  It will be a big hit with the festival crowds that Mumford and Sons will be touring in front of because it’s dance-friendly, and the songs’ simple chorus is drug-friendly.  Hippie chicks and Flic-your-Bic men rejoice!  When Marcus Mumford is singing at his best, he has a style that is reminiscent of Dave Matthews, and the band clearly doesn’t fit the simple label of Folk Rock.  This song, more so than the others anyway, feels upbeat.  Babel might be great background music for killing a bottle of whiskey, but most of its songs would be better background music for killing a party. 

            “Babel” sounds a lot like “Little Lion Man” to be sure, but it’s missing the uniqueness that song had.  “Little Lion Man” had a cool bass line, and the sparseness of the arrangement made its’ words stand out clearly, and the surprise profanity made it memorable.  “Babel” has the same fast strumming, the same intensity “Little Lion Man” did, but if they were making a musical reference to Bob Dylan with lines about the “watchman’s son” or the “wind that will howl” it was lost on me.  It sounded bland, and by third song of the album, pretty damn familiar. Someone should introduce Marcus Mumford to Taylor Swift, so the two of them can compare notes on getting dumped. The other band members play an assortment of drums, keyboards, and more exotic stringed instruments such as the dobro, mandolin, and banjo throughout the album. Those instruments get lost though, behind the relentless acoustic guitar strumming, and Mumford’s grumbling lyrics.  Even the other singers, who sound so well singing in harmony throughout “I Will Wait,” just sound like an echo of Mumford’s monotonous delivery. Two exceptions were “Hopeless Wanderer,” and “Lover of The Light.”  “Hopeless Wanderer,” at over 5 minutes in length, could be considered a “jam” song, and its lyrics and feel are reminiscent of The Grateful Dead. “Lover of The Light” captures Mumford in “Dave Matthews” mode, especially through the chorus, and the rest of the band give a passable DMB impression as well. Banjo, mandolin, and keyboards all stand out clearly in the song, not drowned out by heavy acoustic strumming like so many of the other tracks.  Those are the exceptions, however, and you’ll notice I didn’t say either was particularly good.

            Feel good music, Babel, certainly is not, but the dark themes aren’t the albums downfall, it’s the boring music that accompanies the message.  The band took the blueprint of “Little Lion Man” and tried for 12 more songs that would capture the spirit, and unfortunately the whole dozen came up woefully short.  Nice try, I guess.  My recommendation is save your $15.  If you want a similar type experience for the price of a cup of coffee, try this instead:

1)    Go to your local coffee shop on “folk night”

2)    Ask the barista if you can read his journal

3)    Take the seat directly next to the guitarist
