Pants On Fire

“America Will Never Be A Socialist Country”.

“We Were Born Free And We Will Stay Free”.

– 45 SOTU Speech

Liar, liar, pants on fire.

Just two of over eight thousand, according to the WAPO, and these may not be considered, as they are opinions.

Just because a person can label something other than what it is, doesn’t make it so.

1 socialism

noun

so·cial·ism

\ˈsō-shə-ˌli-zəm\

: a way of organizing a society in which major industries are owned and controlled by the government rather than by individual people and companies

.
Full Definition

1: any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods.

.
*Consider the military industrial complex as a root program, feeding intentionally and unintentionally other industries for the simple sake of keeping many people employed / enslaved.

In general knowing that most weapons built, will never be used (on the positive side, it reflects we are evolving) yet, blind eyes are turned because in the grand scheme of things, it provides jobs.

“People don’t want anything near ‘em… except military bases. They don’t mind that do they? They like that. Give ‘em an army base, give ‘em a navy base, makes ‘em happy, why? Jobs! Jobs! Self-interest! Even if the base is loaded with nuclear weapons, THEY DON’T GIVE A #UCK!!!

They say “well, I’ll take a little radiation if I can get a job!” Working people have been #ucked over so long in this country, those are the kind of decisions they’re left to make.”

– George Carlin

Plus, it trickles down to other economies that would appear to be separate from it.

The person(s) getting paid to build a destroyer, wants to build a house. Needs to hire an architect, a contractor, get a loan from a bank. Etc., etc., etc

“Defense” cleverly disguised as socialism

To the tune of 700 plus billion a year for “seed” money.

2a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property

There is no “private” property, the banks are holding the leases and the banks are controlled/regulated by the government and doled out and around by the International monetary fund.

Besides no matter what a person might think that they “own”, it is an illusion of cliché proportions.

There are no U-haul’s behind a hearse. You can not take it with you and whoever dies with the most “toys” is dead.

b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state

* See above.

.
3: a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

First known use: 1833

.
A clever bean counter, a hedge fund manager, or currency manipulator are not productive members of society.

Not saying some good may not come out of their actions but it is a perpetual roll of the dice that they could gamble any one’s business or a country’s economy into the poor house.

“Sky scraper buildings
Corporate corridor, office suite
Executive board, high finance
Big businessman suit
Not stained by sweat or blood
Using money like perfume water

Sophistication smiles
Hide stain and decay
Realistic decisions
In columns and ledgers
Dividing profits among themselves
Spoils of war are spoils of war
Says Junk Man owner of the junk

Grafitti Man’s got something to say
Message in a scrawl message on the wall

Down with bosses
No more bosses
Something’s gotta change
Something’s gotta change”

– John Trudell

Farms subsidized because of an inept foreign trade policy is socialism

State laws requiring you to pay a partial premium to cover “uninsured motorists” is socialism

Paying to have your trash removed, which too often ends up on garbage barges, then dumped into the ocean is met with society paying to clean up the ocean, is socialism.

Not to mention it is our insatiable need to feel good about ourselves that we consume as much material products in the first place.

Thinking that if we buy the latest gizmo that is newer, shinier, faster, softer, harder, has an extra bell or whistle, then we’ll be complete.

Driven by a treadmill like news cycle that reaches the negativity of armageddon type proportions, creating a “live like there is no tomorrow” entropic attitude.

“Open spaces in shopping center walls
Middle class man middle class land
Clean enough to be a family affair
Nice place to take wide eyed child
Controlled climate temperate zones
Neat little shops all laid out
Everything by sale
By cash or plastic
Price not negotiable but payment is
Different junk man different junk
Spend some money buy some more

Grafitti Man’s got something to say
Message in a scrawl message on the wall

Put on blinders
Dull the senses
Who’s worth more than money they spend?”

“We Were Born Free And We Will Stay Free”

– 45 SOTU Speech

Liar, liar, pants on fire.

“Freedom

Freedom is the measurable distance, between you and your watch, wallet, phone & keys.”

– me

Unless you can, at will, transform yourself into the ether, enter and exit other dimensions, pass through liquids or solids at the drop of a hat, you are not free.

You are bound and shackled, first by gravity, oxygen and sunlight. That is just on nature’s end.

“It’s not a free country. You’re born free…

I mean, you are born absolutely free, except for the laws of nature. If you drink, you get drunk. That’s a law. If you get old, you die. That’s a law too. If you sit on a tack, you will bleed from the ass.”

“These are the only laws they that you’re born with. And any kind of government just #ucks you out of that type of freedom.”

– Doug Stanhope

.
Get into the man made systems and you may as well be lying in an Iron Maiden, waiting (and / or hoping) for the lid to close.

.

If you really think you’re free tonight… You, hero! Officer Bob, you’re a free man! You live in a free country!

You go upstairs… You take your own beer you risked your life for… You sit on the hood of your monster truck in a parking lot… Drink your beer. And see how long it is before actual veteran cops come by and pound on you with trudgeons on the kidneys, to show… “Why can’t I do it? I’m just having a beer.” “I don’t know.”

That’s the law, you don’t #uck around.” You can’t drive down the street without a seatbelt on, why not? Or you gotta put on a helmet.

You can’t sit in your own backyard naked, your own filthy dirty flesh that you’re born with. You know that body you carry around? “Filthy! You can’t sit out… Why not? I don’t know, that’s just the way it is. You’re not free.

You’re not free in the least. You need a dipoma in this country, to cut hair. Are you free? You need to keep your tray in an up right and locked position during take-off. That’s not just a hack premise, it’s a #ucking felony.

//

“Why do I have to have…? This doesn’t make sense.”

They say if you give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day, but if you teach a man to fish….

…….Then he’s gotta get a fishing license, but he doesn’t have any money.

So he’s got to get a job, and get into the Social Security system and pay taxes, and now you’re gonna audit the poor c*#@$ucker, ’cause he’s not really good with math.

He’ll pull the IRS van up to your house, and he’ll take all your shit. He’ll take your black velvet Elvis and your Batman toothbrush, and your penis pump, and that all goes up for auction with the burden of proof on you, because you forgot to carry the one, ’cause you were just worried about…….. eating a #ucking fish, and you couldn’t even cook the fish ’cause you needed a permit for an open flame.

Then the Health Department is going to start asking you a lot of questions, about where are you going to dump the scales and the guts. ‘This is not a sanitary environment’,

And ladies and gentlemen if you get sick of it all, at the end of the day… not even legal to kill yourself in this country.

Thanks again, John Ashcroft, you weird bible addict, can’t even handle his own drug. You were born free, you got fucked out of half of it, and you wave a flag celebrating it.

The only true freedom you find, is when you realize and come to terms with the fact that you are completely and unapologetically #ucked, and then you are free to float around the system.”

– Doug Stanhope

Speaking of Iron Maiden

“The Prisoner”

We want information

Information
Information

Who are you?
The new number 2

Who is number 1?
You are number 6

I am not a number! I am a free man!

[Laughter]

I’m on the run, I kill to eat
I’m starving now, feeling dead on my feet
Going all the way, I’m natures beast
Do what I want and do as I please

Run – Fight – To breathe – It’s tough
Now you see me now you don’t
Break the walls I’m coming out

Not a prisoner I’m a free man
And my blood is my own now
Don’t care where the past was
I know where I’m going …out!

If you kill me it’s self defense
And if I kill ya’ then I call it vengeance
Spit in your eye I will defy
You’ll be afraid when I call out your name

Run – Fight – To breathe –
It’s gonna be tough
Now you see me now you don’t
Break the walls I’m coming out

Not a prisoner I’m a free man
And my blood is my own now
Don’t care where the past was
I know where I’m going

I’m not a number I’m a free man

Live my life where I want to
You’d better scratch me
From your black book
Cause’ I’ll run rings around you

Want to test your freedom? Next time you are at a “sporting” event, that uselessly (for no intrinsic reason) plays the national anthem. Stand like a statue, with your hand over the heart arm, raised and “flipping the bird” (finger “swearing” oooooh) towards the flag.

See how long it takes some thick neck, arm swinging, red “MAGA” hat wearing, insecure about the size of his flag pole dude to come by and rearrange your version of freedom to his. Whilst keeping this in mind.

Content, Context And Intent

“Racism, because it favors color over talent, is bad for business.” (and government.)

― Steven Pinker

.
If society is going to expunge public officials from office for being racist, that is completely understandable.

Is dressing up in black face offensive?

Yes.

As society sloooowlllllly evolves, was it inappropriate, showing poor judgment, and insensitive.  Yes, yes, yes.

Beyond the knee jerk unexamined reaction though, one ought to take into consideration, the diversity of the staff.

Also review the policies implemented, removed, or unfairly and unjustly enforced.

After all, an elected official may have never put on black face in any context, but may still surround himself with a mostly, all (pink) “white” male cabinet.

Then by executive order, implement an unconstitutional travel ban barring peoples of a specific religion from entering the country.

Likewise creating a bogeyman under the bed (across the border) fearful hysteria to coalesce a boneless base into being ardent supporters.

Because, you know, if Norway was the country at the southern “border” 45 would be declaring a “national emergency” to build a concrete, one way, four lane super highway heading north.

Plus be able to admit through confession that it’s okay to assault women when you have “celebrity” status, and get away with it.

Pile on the executive orders (that he said he’d never need to use) to deny people who have had medical procedures from volunteering to “serve” their country.

Need I go on?

.
Obviously the politically correct way to get away with continuing to practice blatant racism, religious intolerance, xenophobia, homophobia, misogyny, treason, stealing from the lower and middle class to give to the rich, sidle up to dictators, despots, autocrats and murderers, then all you have to do, to make that behavior acceptable, is dress up in a blue suit, a white shirt, a red tie and paint on an ORANGE face.

Alpha And Omega

Besides the
Fairy tale
Notion
Of an
Alpha and Omega
Existence

Energy
Can neither
Be created
Nor destroyed

Therefore
It merely
Changes shape
In
S p a c i o u s n e s s
Or density
Inertia
Or velocity
Opaqueness
Or clarity

That is
If you are looking at it
At the right moment
To even decide
If it is
A particle or a wave
Or both or neither.

Such is
The sustenance
Of our minds
At the
Perpetual crossroads
Of evolution
With no
Turning back

It is impossible
To unlearn
But never to late
To rearrange
One’s beliefs
Or perceptions

 

 

Speculating Outside Of The Box

‘Twas like thunder, all thru the night
Promise to see Jesus in the morning light
Love say “Take my hand, it’ll be alright
C’mon save your soul tonight”

“Thunder”

–  Prince

.

During the pregame warm up to the chaotic “state of the union” speech.

Much like football, each side hyping up what “their” team is going to do, based on past performance and wishful thinking.

We think 45 is going to declare a national emergency to build a wall.

If 45 declares a national emergency just to appease his racist base, it will get clogged in the courts.

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

Relentlessly regurgitated, recycled, repeated and repeated with no nutritional or spiritual value.

We think Larry linebacker is going to stop the play, We think Randy receiver will fumble the ball. No, kicking Kevin can save the day and win the game. As I said.

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

Relentlessly regurgitated, recycled, repeated and repeated with no nutritional or spiritual value.

Just once, would like to see/hear either or both sides, speculate outside of the box, they’ve trapped themselves in and pontificate the following.

Seeing how horribly 45 failed as a negotiator, we think Potus will have had a “come to Jesus” or Buddha or Muhammad, or Kermit the frog, or Winnie the Pooh, or Oprah moment, and eloquently describe a new vision.

Maybe something like this.

.
“My fellow and feminine Americans, after studying the globe and consulting with cosmologists, humanitarian and history experts, now realize, regardless of how countries are identified, how big or small they are, they all are on the same big blue green spaceship magically floating in an elliptical orbit around the sun.

Therefore it seems silly to bar any one from moving freely around the vessel. Especially since, everybody is already here. We can work on that, once it is understood we are all coming from the same place.

Might as well realize that, then collectively take care of our intergalactic traveling Winnebago just to see where it is taking us. Without it falling apart due to poor maintenance.”

– Speculation as a transformed 45

.
Otherwise the collective stays mired in a thick gooey loose stool circular muddy rut, regardless of how hard it tries to get out, only gets worse.

What If? Instead……

A formidable follow up to “On No Particular Day”

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

– Dr Wayne Dyer

What if, instead of “caravans of criminals”, “miles of migrants” or “deluge of drugs” were coming over the border (an imaginary line dividing dirt).

It was “reported” as “frightened fetuses” or a “barrage of babies” were heading north to avoid being aborted or buried.

Same thing, different context.

Would, then the “religious right” (yeah, right), “Christian conservatives”, or racist #ucks, step up to the plate, welcome and assist? My guess is nope. It would simply be reframed as not our problem.

.
“Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”

– Unknown (just kidding)
– The late JC (I think)

.
As for a correlation to the “deluge of drugs”, if there were no consumers of the product there’d be none coming north in the first place.

No one is smuggling in products that won’t be purchased, it is as simple as that.

On No Particular Day

On no particular day, when 45 was steeped and embroiled in narcissistic self induced look at me controversy with prepared distractions which lead back to him, (I need attention) regardless of likely criminality, deception and ignorance. As I said, no particular day.

I dropped down on the satellite radio dial both numerically and dispositionally to Faux news, to hear how they might spin 45’s involvement with Putin.

Only to discover that since there was no one else to blame or to un-twist a half baked presidential pretzel. The host was ranting and whining over the emotionally rankling topic of abortion.

Nothing like gearing the material for their audience. Must be policy, that if you can’t say something nice or accurate about the president, keep the base glued over useless controversy. Keep ratings up and revenue streaming.

Faux must have an endless rotating cue of prepared topics to distract and detain. Ones, that will never ever reach a resolve any more than figuring out, which came first, the chicken or the egg. Items such as flag burning, immigration, gun control, prayer in school, God in the pledge of allegiance, anthem kneeling, Hillary’s e-mails, climate change etc.

When faux is not avoiding the (in general, would be good to know) topics, they all always seem to deceptively direct the dialogue to dichotomous distraction. To the point, where it just is people talking over each other.

I keep waiting for for Fox to realize, they have no more threads left, to keep the emperor clothed.

“They’re not pro-life. You know what they are? They’re anti-woman. Simple as it gets, anti-woman. They don’t like them. They don’t like women. They believe a woman’s primary role is to function as a brood mare for the state.”

– George Carlin

.
The only two cents, I want to throw in, is that until government outlaws post natal abortions (war casualties) pre natal ones should be just as “legal”. Or be able to cite a reasonable differentiation between the two.

What is the deal? Men can abort as many, out of the womb fetuses they want, but women aren’t allowed to have one or two?

As Kamala Harris so poignant and eloquently pointed out, during the failed supreme court vetting process.

“There are no laws on any books, regulating men’s bodies.”

– Kamala Harris

.
Here are my credentials:

First of all

I have none

Seeing as how

I have a penis

That should end

Any males input

On this subject

However

.
Since I never ever

Wanted to participate

In that decision

Making process

I chose not to

Join the military

Where I would have to

Follow orders to

Perform late term

Out of the womb

Post natal abortions

.
“Wouldn’t it be nice to have a kid? To have this fresh, clean slate which we could fill. A little clean spirit, innocent, and to fill it with good ideas.”

Yeah, yeah, how about this? If you’re so fucking altruistic, why don’t you leave the little clean spirit wherever it is right now?

– Bill Hicks

.
That is what I did

Just to bolster

My ability to comment

Never planted any

Seeds in any garden

So that

Would never

Be a decision

On my plate

Besides

Was very

Self aware as to how

I turned out

Would not impose

My thinking

And over thinking

On anyone

“Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t want to know about you. They don’t want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you’re preborn, you’re fine; if you’re preschool, you’re fucked.

Conservatives don’t give a shit about you until you reach “military age”. Then they think you are just fine. Just what they’ve been looking for. Conservatives want live babies so they can raise them to be dead soldiers.”

– George Carlin

.

Don’t think of it

As an abortion.

Think of it as

Fetus / womb separation

At the uterine border wall

Deporting the soul

Back to the spirit realm

Where “it” belongs

.

Metaphorically that “should” end the *immigration arguments as well.

.
In that context

Perhaps Laura Ingraham

Can get behind it

And stop wasting

Valuable air time

With emotional dialogue

Trumped up to

Distract

 

*Immigration

“There’s too many people in this fucking country. But I think if you’re going to focus on keeping people out, you got to focus on people who don’t contribute to society. That’s a no-brainer.

There’s a specific group of over 4 million people that come into this country every year and don’t contribute a fucking thing.

And everyone knows who I am talking about, but no one wants to say it, because it is politically incorrect

But, fuck that, you know who I am talking about. Officer Bob. You know who I am talking about, who am I talking about. ….

Babies, that’s who I am talking about,  babies,  they come out of your hole, they come in to this country. They don’t speak the language, they don’t want to work.

They just take and they take and they cause a ruckus. They waste all of our natural resources. I say put the border patrol agent at the foot of your uterus.

Anything comes out without a visa, you kick it back in the hole. What is your name? You are not on the list, get back behind the velvet rope. The club is over full, we’ll call you when we need you.

Sick, the amount of people.

Oh Doug, don’t do an anti baby bit on every cd?

Yes, cause you won’t stop having them, so I am going to keep saying it.

Almost every problem in the world boils down to too many fucking people and I’m not just talking out of my ass. I’ve had my vasectomy,  I have no children.”

I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”

Maybe, he should have said, he will build caves.

For no one “caves” better than the Donald.
