Word Replacements

Not permanently, don’t worry

(No one is mandating the metric system yet)

Just long enough to think about

The context of ridiculousness

To which the following applies

Recently heard senator so and so

(In this case, they are interchangeable)

Was defending his racist policies

Because of his “deeply held religious beliefs”

Which is when that phrase

Seemed to give him an automatic pass

To the interviewer to accept that

With unquestioning legitimacy

Of ironically un-Christlike behavior

Hint: there were no Caucasians

In Bethlehem 2K23 years ago

Now there, for historical accuracy

Might be an image worth replacing

Interviewer: “Oh yes, society as a whole abhors your policies, but since you can preface them with words that defer to a conviction, based on nothing.

Save, generational indoctrination via many pastoral presentations, through book revisions, re-writings and translations from nearly dead unrecognizable languages, I won’t press the issue.”

However, instead of deeply held religious beliefs, they said they introduced policy because of a lightly considered Warlock dream they had, or anything else the interviewer would have read them the riot act.

Either, or both have the wrongfulness in the outcome of the morality towards treating fellow bipedal earthling artists, in a way that elevates and progresses our collective evolution, unfortunately the former goes, without question.


Because no one wants to question their own beliefs. That’s too scary. People would discover as Bill Hicks said:

“It is interesting to see how people act on their beliefs, you know what I mean. Because your beliefs are just that, they are just how you were taught and raised. That doesn’t make them real.”

I know my beliefs, are just that, beliefs. Which are as fluid and malleable to my surroundings and constantly in flux.

Which, thanks to Bill, need to be questioned infinitely as to how they apply in the treatment of myself (other people reflecting back, who I am) outside of my self.

“Now, believe is a word that I have a serious problem with, right, because it has a “Lie” in the middle.

Too Close To The Mirror

To see our ugly reflection

Staring us in the scarred face

Under cold fluorescent lights

We turn away to point a finger

For the crimes against humanity

With the International Criminal Court

When we see what Putin does

To the Sovereign Ukrainians

But when Bush did the same

To the Iraqis, that didn’t look as bad

Because from that there perspective

It was done for God and country

May 20, 2022, 4:41 PM EDT

By Ahmed Twaij, journalist, filmmaker and doctor

“Former President George W. Bush has finally, if unintentionally, admitted his error in invading Iraq nearly 20 years ago. While attempting to scold Russian President Vladimir Putin for his ruthless invasion of Ukraine, Bush accidentally condemned his own actions.

At an event at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas on Wednesday, the former president called out “the decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq.” He quickly corrected himself, saying, “I mean Ukraine,” but he proceeded to chuckle and mutter “Iraq, too” under his breath to laughter from the audience. It’s true that had his gaffe not reflected reality, it would have almost been comedic. But as a child of Iraqi migrants, the distasteful sniggering by the man who launched a war resulting in at least 800,000 estimated Iraqi deaths and the displacement of millions more is nothing short of despicable.”

We knew deep down inside like the oil wells

Halliburton was about to dig it was

For our own self interest of the “economy”

But, where else would we be without

Our AMSOC (AMerican SOCIalism)

The clever ruse of AMIMP (imperialism)

On the redistribution of wealth

Back and forth between the government

Of connected in cahoots corporations

Disguised as defending democracy by

Building weapons of mass destruction

All the way from aircraft carriers

To bombs, bulldozers and body bags

Keeping the Proletariat busy with “jobs”

So they can in turn buy more stuff

With their meager after tax leftovers

Meanwhile it is all laid out in

“The Prosecution of an American President”

By Vincent Bugliosi

Just need one Attorney’s General to file an indictment….

George essentially confessed in that Freudian slip, less than a year ago. Grab some handuffs. Quite sure there are no statute of limitations on war crimes.

Anyone…..yoohoo…..I’m waiting……

Ah fuck.

Then we would see what is in the mirror.

Which technically we wouldn’t even see

At least not for very long thanks to all

Of the distraction make-up we apply

In the face of scandal, immigration

Abortion, fake fear gun confiscation

Race relation and gender manipulations

Any attempts to fix farcical education

Oops, almost forgot…….

“If you become
The leader of the land,
For murder is the sport
Of the elected,

And you don’t need to lift
A finger of your hand

Because it’s murder by numbers, 1, 2, 3,
It’s as easy to learn as your ABC.
Murder by numbers, 1, 2, 3,
It’s as easy to learn as your A, B, C, D, E,………”

The Police

Millions dead, on our watch, that you and I paid for, with our tax dollars, at the very least makes us unwitting accomplices. Maybe that is why our beer drinking buddy George won’t serve any time, because then we would have to also.

Sensational Spin






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

– Dr Wayne Dyer

Good thing Tucker Carlson was not given any raw or documentary type footage of the Milwaukee cannibalistic mass murders.

Otherwise people and the families of the victims, might be lead to believe, Jeffrey Dahmer simply invited guests over for dinner.

Therefore it wasn’t Jeffrey’s fault, for there being a breakdown in communication. See, he invited them over for dinner. Not knowing they were the main course. Ooopsie.

“Just an observation,

Where this should have stopped.

Nope, not dark enough.

Perhaps, Tucker Carlson was not the best person to hand over this January 6th material to. Sitting alone as the master in the booth, watching the unpatriotic porn. Spinning dials, pushing levers and pulling knobs, while debating which scenes to cut and or release.

Fantasizing he was at the capital, rifling through Nancy Pelosi’s desk drawers, trying to oddly address his mommy issues. So that he might continue with his on air, smug, holier-than-thou “not too racist” persona, in need of daddy approval.

With his soul dead, deadpan delivery, that screams of needing attention both inside and outside, that along with his cohorts need to maintain the mayhem for the money. Within the echo chamber of the filtered bubble.

How To Unkill

Two dead birds with

One logical stone

The following contemplation is crystal clear in my cranium. Hope it translates through type.

“What do you think of western civilization?”

“I think it would be a great idea.”

– Mohondas Gandhi

Archie Bunker : “Capital punishment is a well known detergent to crime.”

Michael Stivik: “Capital punishment has never been proven to be a “deterrent” to crime.”

Archie Bunker : “We believe it is in this house, buddy.”

Gloria Stivik : “Mom, do you believe in Capital punishment?’

Edith Bunker : “Well yeah.”

Gloria Stivik : “Mother!!”

Edith Bunker : “So long as it ain’t too severe.

“All In The Family”

Recently, some nudnick, ooops, a politician from Tennessee. Representative Paul Sherrell.

“The House Criminal Justice Committee of the Tennessee legislature was discussing a bill to add the firing squad to electrocution and lethal injection as the state’s death penalty options when Rep. Sherrell suggested one more.

“Could I put an amendment on that that would include hanging on a tree, also?” he inquired during Tuesday’s proceedings.


Hmmmmm. Tennessee, *Lynchings for the crime of let’s see…. Any epidermis, darker than pink.


After clips of the committee meeting went viral, he eventually apologized. Like most racists and their begrudging apologies, he only seems sorry that he got caught, not that he said and believed in it.


“I regret that I used very poor judgment in voicing my support of a colleague’s bill in the Criminal Justice Committee on Tuesday. My exaggerated comments were intended to convey my belief that for the cruelest and most heinous crimes, a just society requires the death penalty in kind. Although a victim’s family cannot be restored when an execution is carried out, a lesser punishment undermines the value we place on protecting life. My intention was to express my support of families who often wait decades for justice. I sincerely apologize to anyone who may have been hurt or offended.”

– Representative Paul Sherrell

Plus with minimal research find that Tennessee Representative is against abortion.

So here, this might be an unconventional solution, however It raises the level of awareness to an evolutionary level, while not stopping either, yet gives both sides something to THINK about.

“Now, I don’t care about capital punishment one way or another ‘cuz I know it dosn’t do anything. It doesn’t do anything, ‘cept maybe satisfy a kind of Biblical need for revenge.

You know, if you read The Bible, you see that it’s full of retrebution and revenge. So really, capital punishment is kind of a religious ritual. It’s a purification right. It’s a modern sacrament. And as long as that’s true, I say, let’s liven it up a little!

I honestly believe that if you make the death penalty a little more entertaining and learn to market it correctly, you just might be able to raise enough money to balance the stupid fucking budget!!”

– George Carlin

Instead of lethal (a euphemism for DEADly) injection, firing squad or lynching. We place the Death row inmate in cramped water tight quarters, attached to umbilical tubing supplying oxygen, nutrients and removing waste.

Then we let Rep. Sherrell go in with giant forceps and a suction device to remove the most heinous of criminals from society, or…….. the wrongly convicted, tearing limbs out first, resulting in the death of a grown fetus.

Which is murder, and now that we have evidence that Rep. Sherrell killed a human being, we can start the cycle all over. Not to mention, making abortions legal again.

How is it, that the state will do everything it can to save a fetus, but when it grows up unloved, poorly guided, to a parent or parents who didn’t want it in the first place, then commits a violent or deadly crime. Becomes an easily discardable un-person that the state can’t wait to kill, for not living up to their grandiose “its a miracle” expectations.

“Strange Fruit”

Southern trees
Bear a strange fruit
Blood on the leaves and
Blood at the root

Black bodies swinging
In the Southern breeze
Strange fruit hanging
From the poplar trees

Pastoral scene
Of the gallant South
The bulging eyes
And the twisted mouth

Scent of magnolias
Sweet and fresh
Then the sudden smell
Of burning flesh

Here is a fruit
For the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather
For the wind to suck

For the sun to rot
For the tree to drop
Here is a strange
And bitter crop

– Billy Holiday

“Strange Fruit”

“In March 1939, a then-23-year-old Billie Holiday closed out her set at New York’s Cafe Society with a song she hadn’t performed before: “Strange Fruit.”

Written by Jewish schoolteacher Abel Meeropol, the song was a mournful dirge for Black victims of lynchings in the Jim Crow-era South, vividly likening their bodies to fruit “hanging from the poplar trees.” 


As of this writing, 84 years is a long time not to evolve, it is not like we are trying to collectively grow another thumb. Just change awareness that regardless of skin color, we are all just bipedal earthling artists riding on this spaceship through the cosmos.


The only reason humanity is cycling through this current reality of chaos, confusion, violence, hatred, uncertainty, distraction. (Well, besides religion…….). Is because it is the only thing we know. Having been indoctrinated for eons of generations that, this is how it is, and is, as good as it is going to get.

Trapped into experiencing the Bullwinkle, cartoonish illusion of immersion, that “there is nothing “up” my sleeve” magic show. Longer than temporarily hypnotized to believe we are “supposed” to struggle through this dense dimension by growth through adversity.

When instead of grasping the reality, individually and collectively of our divine nature. The miracle of consciousness, even on the most basic of levels of turning O2 into CO2 in the less than a blink of an eye. Without wires, gears or instructions.

Same goes for being able to convert raw and processed nutrients including a lot of dead animal flesh into an excremental warm soft paste, broken down in an acid bath. Expelled by muscles, you did not know you had.

All because one chose their parents and picked the vehicle they would ride in, for these trips around sun. When it seems as though, what we are supposed to know is.

“The incredible beauty of the sculptured cities and the pure spirit of man revealed in the lives and works of this world. I was overwhelmed by both wonder and understanding as I saw a completely different way to life.”


– Rush

The quest then is, how can we 100th monkey theory our way into that reality “of the sculptured cities and the pure spirit of man” ?

Trouble is, even for myself I do not know what I’d be doing. Hard to imagine in that scenario, would still be “looking at the world through a windshield”. Maybe, even in those sculptured cities, would still need stuff brought from point A to B.

Who knows, I guess I might find out at that point, what I am supposed to do. Right now, I am doing what I’d rather be doing. Plus perhaps sculpting context through content to bring everyone along for a “new” ride.

I Am So Glad

I am not a scientist

In the same way

I am thrilled I do not

Cling to religious dogma

Where non proof

Seems to be both’s

Belief of a Holy Grail

Either in an invisible man

Or the nauseous notion

Of a beginning Big Bang

Recently the James Webb telescope

“Discovered” more galaxies

Even further away than imagined

(Not mine, my imagination

Is already there and beyond)

Causing the scientists to

Readjust their calculations

On the actual age of the universe

Instead of acknowledging its

Infinite infinity-ness that keeps

Being proven over and again

“Infinity is so big, that everything that has ever happened, on earth in the exact same order, down to………. that … pause has happened an infinite number of times, all through out the universe.

Everywhere in space, there is a you, making the same colossal f**king errors, that you’ve made your entire life.

So if anybody ever tells you, you can do better. Go, apparently not.”

That’s infinity.”

Joe Rogan

Which is just as bad as religion

Trying to convince people of

A more definitive description

Of a divine deity that decides

One’s fate based on behavior

Or…… random circumstances

That “he” needs challenge you

Along with all of the other

Eight billion he’s keeping his eyes on

Not to mention weather patterns

Earthquakes, forest fires, icy roads

Sporting events and Golden Globes

Maybe the scientists could turn

Their $10B, yes Ten Billion Dollar

Toy around and focus it on the

Earthly inhabitants and what

They are up to in their so called

Godlike treatment of each other

Oops just realized it is Godlike

“Hey if you read history, you realize that God is one of the leading causes of death.

Has been for thousands of years. Hindus, Muslims, Jews, Christians, all taking turns killing each other because God told them it was a good idea.”

– George Carlin

Forget blaming God, for it is upon the realization that humans have a tendency to try and objectively kill outside of themselves, what they do not like inside, in spite of themselves.

From Rush “Territories”

“The whole wide world
An endless universe
Yet we keep looking through
The eyeglass in reverse

Don’t feed the people
But we feed the machines
Can’t really feel
What international means

In different circles,
We keep holding our ground
Indifferent circles,
We keep spinning round and round”

While it would be fun to consider

Myself a logician and a pragmatist

Turns out either of their existence

Is still, get this, based on belief

Which is substantial as nothing

Yet, am so glad I am just me

Broad Side

This is a follow-up to
Confusion. Skirl. Period.

“That’s another complaint of mine: too much use of this prefix “pre.” It’s all over the language now: pre-this, pre-that, “place the turkey in a pre-heated oven…” It’s ridiculous! There are only two states an oven can possibly exist in: HEATED OR UNHEATED! Pre-heated” is a meaningless fucking term!”

– George Carlin

Sorry George

Just to pre-state
My pre-defense
Prior to the PC-Police
Prisoning my person
From the perceived
Poison of the use
Of the word “broad”

In the word broadcasters

Technically I guess
I was trying to be punny

However, I was not trying
To be sexist or misogynistic

Rather more gender equitable
By not using sexist monikers

Of the common usage of words
Like woman, female, she and her

Having that Handmaid’s Tale
Poor quality of being Of-men

Instead of the yin and yang nature
Balance that flowed out of the

Primordial ooze billions of years ago
Before the primitive patriarch took hold

Indoctrinating society into
Biblically believing that a

Bipedal earthling artist with the
Cosmic ability to birth babies

Somehow….. whose only existence
Came from the magic of men

When according to the “story”
Of an allegedly omniscient creator

Having made all of the plants and animals
With the appropriate reproductive goodies

Simply forgot to create an Eve
Likewise, later to sneak in Caine’s wife

Better known with minimal research
The first case of incest. God “forbid”. oops

Without the unnecessary rib surgery
To keep fixing his forgetful mistake

Confusion. Skirl. Period.

Confusion begins on
The whimsical notion
That there is not any
Single word that has
A singular definition
Let alone a
Lone interpretation

Context may guide you
But if you hesitate for
Longer than a moment
You could easily get
Lost and confused

Wasting time using
A quick and popular
Search engine search
May get to the word skirl
With a single definition
Which is the sound

‘of a bagpipe : to emit the 
high shrill tone of the chanter”

However, quickly recontextualized
It could expand its meaning
To sort of mean something else

The skirl cacophony of
Rude and overlapping
Dialog of the broad*casters
(Really, no pun intended)
(Nevermind, pun intended)
On “The View” would send
Immediately hands covering
Their owner’s ears before
Running out of the room
To silence the skirl


Which is as simple as the dot
To end a sentence. But nooooo.

Meaning conclusion.

See…. simple.

Nope. Period has at least eight
Definitions with two or three
Subset explanations within each


To….sounds like two….or too (whew)


A two letter word with at least
Thirteen different definitions
Some with sub and subset
Definitions and content descriptions


Think to believe and know am I

And yet, we have the egotistical audacity to assume, when we speak or write, that the recipient of said communication will grasp in its entirety, the intended meaning.

Without a dictionary, a thesaurus, interpreters, therapists and lexicographers.

Is just as much

An infinite contemplation

As infinity is

From a different direction

But unlike looking through

A telescope or microscope

To decipher which has

The grander view*

Nothing has no thing to offer

Zero, zip, zilch, nada, nothing

Not even an empty void

Nor any words to describe

No deaths to die

No lives to live

Nothing to see, hear,

Taste, touch or smell

So much less than silence

Let alone stillness

Which is yet another form

Of presence in the present

Who knew nothing

Would give one so much

To think about

*Dr. Wayne Dyer reference on the equivocacy of looking through either, to realize both are amazing and go on forever.

Noting, that there are only things to be observed if there is an observer to observe them.

Existence Explained

Things only come to existence via the words used to describe them. Think not…..then think of something, not yet defined by a word.

Don’t worry, I’ve got all day.


If you had no word for freewill, you would have more freewill, than the freewill you do have. Simply because it is shackled to a definition, you now cling to.

Exercising one’s freewill

Is merely a gesture to

Follow one of the following

Patterns, archetypes, others

Or imbedded indoctrinations

My best perception of a Michelangeloian man’s hand to God definition of freewill would be that, in this momentary instant, I could transport myself into a comfortable bean bag chair, floating in the vacuum of deep space to observe the cosmos.

Which, with imaginative perception I can. However, realistically I remain earthbound in this dense dimension. Held in cranial captivity to the patterns of breathing and not freezing.

All because of words that sustain and maintain my existence. To a certain extent must make up my existence, let alone everything existing.

Do I breathe, because there is a word for breathing? What powers this anthropomorphic vehicle I seem to be trapped in?

Better yet, why does it feel compelled to transfer redundant, go nowhere thoughts to this blog platform that only a few well appreciated followers take up their important time to read such nonsense?? Acknowledging my existence.
