No Karmic Reward

Recently listened to the audiobook “The Operator”

(Firing the Shots that Killed Osama Bin Laden and My Years as a SEAL Team Warrior)

by Robert O’Neill

Not really the genre I’d listen to, however it was prominently displayed at the local library.

(Why not, I have 9 hours to kill each night)

Read by the author

Very well, I might add, giving the kind of vocal inflections that capture the essence of many various experiences.

Builds on his growing up in a small town recollections and reflections. On to seemingly detailed accounts of various military training.

Waxing eloquent, crescendoing to the main event, like if it were a movie, you could almost hear the orchestra music.

But like any climax, especially the ones, brought on by self. There is the head bowed contemplation, if that was really necessary.

Wonder if the following ever occurs to Robert? Of confessing to murder in print and implicating his boss, who “ordered” the hit in the first place.

That maybe, in hindsight, an out of the womb, grown fetus in a bunker did not impose an immediate threat, therefore making it unconstitutional.

Which in hearing the voice that relays this story, took on a reticent melancholy tone and no more hoo-haas, that preceded in the previous chapters.

Having also broken the “unwritten” code of taking credit as an individual, for what the whole “team” “accomplished”, distancing himself from his comrades.

I guess when the fever pitch of the previous administration, failed to kill the bogeymen that allegedly masterminded the (inside job) attacks on merikkka.

It was sustained in some hearts and smaller minds that retribution was a necessary means of soul cleansing to heal an open wound.

Which led to the bravado bragging of his / Seal Team # ? / Obama’s / American taxpayer’s kill.

While Robert may have been celebrated, receiving momentary and monetary accolades, am guessing in the end, there will be no karmic reward.

 

Just an observation

Maybe I need different glasses.

Gifted

What do you get for a person

Who performs abortions?

 

.

 

Not sure what they do

In the medical field

But in the military

They usually dole out……..

.

 

Medals

@ Ceremonies

With press coverage

.
Honoring what society

Allegedly despises

The killing of fetuses

Albeit grown ones

Out of the womb ones

Still the ones that

Once were fetuses

 

.
Corporate coerced

Military discounts

Parades, statues

Front of line access

Movies glorifying

Book deals detailing

Memorial buildings

Highways and parks

Dedicated to those

.

 

With that soul defining

Moral code of….

Just following orders

.
You know

Doing what they’re told

By a “superior”

Who “outranks” them

While getting paid

By the taxpayer

With death dollars

 

.

 

And still the collective

Wonders why we can’t

Stop pre or post natal abortions

Oh yeah

.

 

 

“Conservatives want live babies so they can raise them to be dead soldiers.”

– George Carlin

 

 

Who although described as

Protecting your “freedoms”

Are tyrannically propagating

A consumptive lifestyle by

Strong arming control and access

Over global resources with the

Blank check from your tax dollars

By any means necessary which

Include killing noncombatants

Of all ages referred to as

Collateral damage……ooopsie

.
“What matters, is that if you believe in the sanctity of life, then you believe it, for life of all ages.

//

You either love all people of all ages or you shut the fuck up.”

– Bill Hicks

.
Maybe I just don’t understand

Why condoning one form is okay but

Condemning the other form, not okay

Seems to me, that is like wearing

Leather shoes and a fur coat

To a PETA rally, sure it’s comfortable

But it completely misses the point

.
“These people call themselves “right to lifers.” Don’t you love that phrase? And don’t you love the way these kind of people pervert the English language?

You realize that most of the right-to-lifers are in favor of the DEATH penalty? And they support the South American DEATH squads.

And they’re against gun control and they’re against nuclear weapons control.

When they say “right to life,” they’re talking about THEIR right to decide which people should live or die.”

– George Carlin

Just an observation

Protecting Your Freedom

The needle has long since

Worn out the vinyl groove

On that broken record cliche

Not so you would notice

As authority keeps playing it

To the deaf and to the right

Seemingly one in the same

Three sequenced words

Over and over again like a

Mindless mantra manipulating

The masses into malleable mush

Ironically giving up individual

Ones to the collective none

Why? Because it sounds good

Protecting freedom…..WOW whee!

That would be no small task

.
Free

3a: not determined by anything 
beyond its own nature or being 

: choosing or capable of choosing for itself

– m-w.com

Just not sure how protecting your freedom can get accomplished with weaponry, blood spilt or camera’s monitoring and no action taken.

Just an observation, maybe I need different glasses.

The Unsung Heroes

Through any tragedy

A group arises to the top

And yes certainly the

Health care professionals

Are deserving everyone’s praise

No doubt, I could not do

What they are doing

The extremely long hours

The daily risk of death

The sheer emotional exhaustion

Before or after Covid-19

Still tragedy or no tragedy

The ones who never get recognized

The people at the core

Of making life / existence possible

So that every group gets

Their day in the sun are all of the

Farmers and ranchers

Loggers, miners and drillers

Nothing happens without them

Nothing no food no buildings

No heat or cool, no roads or light

No communication, no connection

Everything everyone gets to do

Starts with those five groups

So here’s my little shout out

Thanks, am very grateful

You are the unsung heroes

Capitalism @ Its Finest

.

 

 

“We got a thousand points of light
For the homeless man

We got a kinder, gentler,
Machine gun hand

We got (closed) department stores
and (no) toilet paper
//
Got a man of the people,
Says keep hope alive
(Yes, that’s Mr. # 45)

Got (cheap) fuel to burn,
Got (bad) roads to drive.

Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Keep on rockin’ in the free world”

– Neil Young

 

.
Bidding death away

To the highest bidder

Need some PPE

Or a ventilator

To live another day

Pony up and pay

Or the shell

Of your being

Will be put

In a casing

6 feet in the ground

(Ultimate social distancing)

As 45’s administration

Has secured

Pallets of masks

To send them to……

No, not hospitals

Rather a

Distributor / broker

Who can then

“Auction” them off

To whichever

Customer or county

Wants them the most

Because that is how

Capitalism…….works??

From White House Press Conference 4 2 20

REAR ADM. JOHN POLOWCZYK, JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF VICE DIRECTOR OF LOGISTICS:

The 200,000 is going out as we speak.

MIKE PENCE, VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES:

Very specific about that.

POLOWCZYK: It will be – it will be delivered tomorrow.

REPORTER: Question –

PENCE: Let me be clear on that. What Jared announced, what the admiral said is pallets are being loaded right now to send 200,000 N95 masks to New York City to the public health hospitals.

POLOWCZYK: To the public health warehouse in New York City.

PENCE: All the health care workers, help is on the way.

POLOWCZYK: This product that we`re moving is primarily commercial product that would enter the commercial system and be distributed through financial business transactions between hospitals and these distributors.

REPORTER: But just to clarify, that explains why states say they are bidding like eBay because the supplies are going to the private sector and they have to go there.

POLOWCZYK: That`s normally how things work, right? So I`m not here to disrupt a supply chain.

.
(Am thankful did not have to call Pence a weasel, his dialogue and manner, did that for himself)

.
Wonder if that is how

The casket makers

Will cash in or if

They’ll be competing

With bulldozers

Digging mass graves

Which is really

Capitalism @ its finest

Well…..certainly nothing

To sneeze at

 

.
Yes, my soul is

Much darker

Than it “should” be

Actually though, according

To this blog’s title and subtitle

“Looking at the world through a windshield”

The observations are from

“The loose nut behind the wheel”

In other words I didn’t make this stuff up

I am merely an observer

Making observations

Thanks for stopping by

Normal, See

If what was then

Was then which

What is now

Considered normalcy

That seemed more

Like lunacy

For what we have now

Is insanity

Neither a place

I want to be

What was then

Might have been

More familiar

Hardly normal

Merely acceptable

Because it was what

We’d grown up to

Expect and accept

As long as we could

Maybe kinda sort of

Navigate our way

Through the maze

However given

A choice of either

Neither would be one

One would return to

As the new normal

Builds in its comforts

Although not quite

As comfortable

Still not normal

The best would be to

Create a better normal

One where everyone

Is fed and sheltered

Has universal

Global healthcare

As obviously what

“Starts” in a “different”

Country affects all

The countries, why

Cause they are all

On the same planet

Duh……

No impervious barrier

Is protecting anyone

Regardless where the

Flag is waving

Religion practiced

Skin color or gender

Bank account value

The grim reaper

Knows none of those

So since governments

Can’t solve the problem

What can we do…….but

“Imagine”

“Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…. Aha-ah…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace… You…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world… You…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one”

– John Lennon

Shouting

“Every life deserves a certain amount of dignity, no matter how poor or damaged the shell that carries it.”
