Tell the owners. Ahm, oh, oops.

 

Donald and the NFL

Tell the “owners”.

Boy, if that isn’t a telling reveal, on at least a couple levels. The apparent one coming from a veiled racist undercurrent of being the “Massa” dictating to the “overseers” to get those slaves/players in line with his whims and wishes.

Completely missing the point of (*) taking a knee to bring attention to the dangerous diabolical disparities of blatant blue brutality, which should be jumping up and down in everybody’s awareness, because it ultimately has nothing to do with race.

Rather “state” power, that regardless of laws and human decency, bestows inherent privileged authority to a few to be the arbiter of who lives or who dies.

Under the guise and at the behest of “we the people” to do its bidding as it sees fit.

It might be blue on black now, but that could change any minute as “the people” may see fit, and that “pink”/white is next. Or red, brown, olive, etc.

(**)Heeding what Martin Niemöller wrote.

As for the “slave” argument, the multimillion $ salaries are but pennies on the distraction dollar as for “the people” getting their money’s worth.

Simply by keeping people separate and fighting amongst themselves.

Easily avoiding or acknowledging the puppeteers pulling the societal deception strings, while their greed becomes insatiable. Plus ignoring the deadly concussions and testosterone that manifests in violence off the field.

Is there anything else that makes someone so diabolically distracted from their divinity, than football ?

The second reveal, (since I’m not an arm chair quarterback, I’ll play arm chair psychologist) and probably sadder still is.

Trying to dictate what “must” be respected. My best guess is that Don’s dad, demanded respect, although he didn’t deserve it, at least in Don’s eyes.

Leaving the rest of us with a wounded little petulant boy, pretending to be the  President. Starving for affection and attention, while trying to convince everyone else he’s worthy.

“See my crowd size”. Will someone go buy the Emperor some new clothes, made out of whole cloth?

 

 

(*)

In youth sports, players take a knee when another player is hurt. It is an acknowledgment of the vulnerable humanity that, for the moment, has been obscured by the intense competition of the game. Taking a knee in that context is, like a religious genuflection, a gesture of self-surrender before the greater reality of human suffering.

//

Likewise, when black players take a knee during the national anthem to protest police violence against African-Americans, they are making a gesture of pain and distress. They are putting America in a more honest context — our “Star-Spangled Banner” dimly seen through the mists of deep injury. It is like flying an American flag upside down in a moment of emergency.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

“I just think 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.

That is why I always recommend a psychedelic experience cause it does make you realize everything you learned is in fact just learned and not necessarily true.”

Pandering

 

“I hate everyone in the White House”

– Donald Trump

 

One could surmise that his “base” has shrunk so significantly, he is trying to latch on to the much larger Bill Hicks platform, with that grandiose quote.

 

“There is a new party being born.

The People Who Hate People Party

People who hate people, come together.

NO!!

We’re kind of having trouble getting off the boards, but, you know.

Are you going to be there?

Yeah!

Then, I ain’t #uckin@ coming.

You are our strongest member.

#uc× You.

That’s what I’m talking about.
You A$$hole

#uc× Off!

Damn, we almost had a meeting going.

So hard to get my people together.”

From “Rant in E-minor”

Yet, the brutal awareness that creeps in and bludgeons my psyche with a five alarm wake-up call, that despite pointing out his hypocrisy’s, narcissism and greed.

He is still a bipedal earthling artist, that converts oxygen, consumes nutrition,  expells waste, pumps blood, walks, talks and tweets.

Is also obviously in desperate need of a massively significant amount of love, compassion and attention.

Which, starting with Congress, could give him plenty of warm hugs, handshakes and thank you’s for a valiant effort.

Wishing him well, as the 25th ammendment is invoked and he spends the rest of his days, in a nice palatial prison dreaming of Trump Tower Moscow and the leader he could have been, had he liked himself a bit more.

It is, that we have collectively conjured up an illusionary system that has allowed that dastardly singularity of an archetype to manifest itself, as an alleged leader. One that keeps us stymied of our own power, separating and fragmenting awareness as an integral part of a loving unified whole.

Now that we know that, it is time to supplicate our innate desires of peace and harmony.

 

Plausible Deniability

Plausible Deniability

Based solely on linguistic accuracy

As to whether or not, Rex Tillerson

Called his “boss” the president a “moron”

I’m oft amazed and flabbergasted with

Jaw dropping, eye popping, incredulity

As to what vile ignorance spews from

The mouth umbrella’d under that hair.

And I only hear it, maybe 10 min a day

Can’t imagine being in the same office

To be subjected to his verbal diarrhea

Of grandiose never-ending narcissism

Yet, Rex’s spokesperson can easily deny

That her client ever called Don a moron

With honest veracity, simply due to the

Media’s apprehension to use curse words

Which in all likelihood and high probability

He called him a Stupid #@&king Moron

It just hasn’t been asked that way yet.

Where small groups of allegedly grown men play a ground acquisition game in brightly colored, pretty faux armor. Not really protecting anything, least of which, their skull.

Paid, yet played like puppet pawns, dutifully distracting massive millions from focusing on family, greedy governments, corporate criminals, wretched warmongers and fake freedoms.

In a theatre of the oval, in exorbitantly high priced seats or remotely monitored on screens, subsidized by the products purchased. Beer, trucks, cars, auto insurance, televisions, beer, chips, sodas, “officially” licensed merchandise, bail bonds, dui attorneys, divorce attorneys, beer, pizza delivery, chicken wings, sports bars, local bars.

Regurgitated ad nauseum by obnoxious pontificaters as to what maybe, the outcome might have sort of have been, if only so and so, did such and such, and not done the other thing.

All the while sustaining debilitating concussions and allegedly having a higher than the average societal proclivity of violence towards women. So, ladies, keep supporting what will probably get you hurt.

Also, completely contriving the inspired intent of “taking a knee” to bring awareness of police brutality to a disproportionate percentage of the population making the general public aware and enlightened.

Instead, making the already distracted further distracted by turning it in to a mindless patriotic fervor, that football players, hate this country and the military.

Once again adding to the pitting them against themselves distraction so they can keep getting away with what they are getting away with.

On rare occasion am subjected to similar impassioned dull dialogue either at work or the gym, end up listening to detailed diatribes over silly statistics with assumed accuracy.

Meanwhile could make a reasonably safe bet that these “guys” know more about “their” players, than they do, as to what their children do, or who they hang out with.

Accepting Numerous Freedoms Lost because it is intended that way.

Granted

 

Taking water for granted.

Honey, I’m heading down the hallway for a nice cold crisp refreshing bottle of water. I am parched, a little cotton mouth perhaps.

Yes, I know we have a small case in the car for our road trip, but the vending machine is so close. Would you like one?

Mind whisks away to Puerto Rico where families of five plus get to share one a day due to Maria and Donald.

Bet if they went down and found oil springing forth from the devastation there’d have been an armada down in a day. With BP, and ExxonMobil not far behind.

They would just need a good pr firm to explain why they were there to whip a little democracy on a US territory.

Seems like I should help, just afraid that goofball will use it to buy more paper towels and throw it at people who really need help. Lip service does not infrastructure rebuild.

Trump said. “This is an island surrounded by water, big water, ocean water.”

F#&KING Brilliant. Maybe that is what he thinks that they can drink.

Fizzle

 

Breaking you down.

By building you up.

A long emergency, extended by perpetual regurgitation of information “breaking”.

Which is not really that “new”, just repackaged with a slicker shinier coating, adding to what you may have already seen or heard from different sources.

Already at the point of exhaustion, with this alleged administration, it’s purported guilt and desperate distractions.

Conspiracy theories upon conspiracies, distracting the distracted, making for implausibly impossible narratives.

Trying to keep your eye on the ball that is whizzing by so fast and furious it looks like several, you would need several eyes moving at light speed to track anything.

Which regardless how accurate or anticipatory the optimistic outcome is, as a “final” now, I can be at peace solution.

The so far and up until now perspective is mired in a gooey and gelatinous muck, that the mind rescue thoughts are teetering on the edge of getting trapped as well.

As for fizzle, the smoking gun will have been disassembled, cleaned, tested, checked for fingerprints, (yes, in that order), examined, photographed, shown, documented, retold, claimed it was the wrong one.

A person will believe what they want to believe, carrying on as if it is true, knowing that they were right all along. Regardless of what “actually” happened, so that they “feel” right and feel ok.

 

Collusion, confusion, distortion

Facts dismissed like an abortion

Putting rationality into contortion

Opinion based solely on a notion

Depending what you watch absorption

Knowing the the truth is in disproportion

Hoping if wrong, will be given absolution

 

# 45 could hold a press conference tomorrow and fully confess to collusion with a foreign country to rig the election because he is narcissistic and greedy and only sought to serve himself and his family.  Depending how one grasps the situation they will be suspicious or vindicated. Vindicated, but suspicious, suspicious but vindicated.
