It's Friday, and We are Letting It All Hang Out -- It's All About Leading from Behind with the Average Naked Communist Thing

Dear America,

happy friday.

[while I almost skipped showing up today; kinda like I did yesterday]

It's not that I was being lazy, or that I didn't have anything to say (yeah, like, fat chance on that, right? -- some can only hope). I think my absence could be best described as finding myself in the middle of a melt down.

But today, let us not dwell on that; or putting it another way, think of little old G more like "leading from behind."

Have you been following that one?  Good stuff...as the clean-up seems to be making more of a mess than anticipated as word gets out.  Don't we just love the internet.... Go here, and then here.

today I awoke with a second wind and quickly ordered a personal copy of The Naked Communist. And without reading it in it's entirety yet, I feel quite certain you should order your own copy, too.  Just go to Amazon.com...here.

Gthing TV gives just a little taste of what's to come in light of what happened to us 'from behind' (strange, it's suddenly reminding me of a legendary response on The Newlywed Game; who remembers the one-liner good for all time, "that would be up the butt, Bob" ?)

Hindsight is great, isn't it?

And just for back up, let's link up with a story in current events -- and go to Godfather Politics, shall we -- and keep in mind, it is just a story 'e pluribus unum.'

So READ THIS before it gets censored off the web...

It's all coming together for the Marxists and Commies, creating the very conditions to take down America in every way.

me thinks our Judeo-Christian heritage is getting taken advantage of -- and I think it all runs together with the way our government has been in the middle of fundamental transformation through a 'leading from behind' strategy dating back to 1958 (just the date The Naked Communist was published);  'we the people' never saw it coming.

But we should have...
....ah the old wudda shudda cudda strikes again.

Make it a Good Day, G

Ashton Carter, Weapons Czar, believes all private weapons

It's About Living Within Our Own Right Thing

Dear America,

don't you just love people -- especially people for the ethical treatment of animals -- also known as PETA.

Now I am an animal lover.  Big time.  I would save every animal I could -- be it from bondage, cruelty, starvation, you name it, I would save it. But this lawsuit?  seriously?

Papers are expected to be filed, today, in San Diego, claiming that five Orcas -- and listed by name: Tilikum and Katina based at SeaWorld in Orlando, Fla., and Corky, Kasatka and Ulises based in San Diego -- are subject to the same rights as humans and thereby protected under the 13th Amendment (for, if you haven't read it lately, the amendment does not limit it's protections to just people).  

"By any definition, these orcas are slaves—kidnapped from their homes, kept confined, denied everything that's natural to them and forced to perform tricks for SeaWorld's profit..." according to Jeff Kerr, PETA's general counsel -- who also happens to have a team of five lawyers under retainer to fight for the orca five (and having already spent 18 months preparing for the case!)     
       hmmmmmmm wonder how PETA donors feel about this use of funds?

So this must be just about getting some free press, or donations, or something?  Whatduhya think?

I mean, c'mon, isn't this what we have done with every family pet in the world?

While considering the season and all, I have a confession.  There have been times -- not every time, mind you -- but if we are gonna be honest here -- there have been times when I have made my dog do a trick without getting a treat....he got nothing, nada, zippo....at best, an "attaboy".  Please.  I beg of you.  Please don't tell BooBoo that this lawsuit lives in San Diego.

And -- if we go there -- which I guess it's where PETA is begging for us to go -- then every farm animal known to man should be jumping on this chuck wagon in only a matter of time.  And then we've got circus animals to address...pet shops...and actually, even the safari adventures in Africa need to have a talking to -- calling upon them to immediately cease profiting off of the wild animals and offer vacations on the savannah for free.  

And why just the orcas?  Are not the dolphins and walrus' people, too?  

And why just Sea World?  Why not attach every zoo in the nation, if not the entire world?

But for the record, "under prevailing U.S. legal doctrine, animals under human control are considered property, not entities with legal standing of their own. They are afforded some protections through animal-cruelty laws, endangered-species regulations and the federal Animal Welfare Act, but are not endowed with a distinct set of rights."  and feel free, you can read more about all this stuff here.

Kerr addresses the involuntary servitude issue against history by adding this -- "The historical context is undeniable, but that's not what this case is about. It's about the orcas in their own right, not whether they are or aren't similar to humans." 

It's all about the orcas "in their own right."   

okay, fine. 
so again, what about dogs -- being "in their own right," right? 

Would not this very condition and experience  -- looking much like a life anchored in being "in their own right" -- pretty much allow them to be born free and live free and die hard without any human care and intervention of any kind?  Wouldn't our world literally look like, and feel like, it has gone to the dogs?  And what gives one animal, like the orca, more rights than another?

 wow.  he ain't heavy, he's my orca, dude.

Be it Tilikum, Katina, Corky, Kasatka and Ulises...from circus elephants to the pet pooch....let's be clear -- they are all animals.

And because humans care, and think deeply about the welfare of others -- including but not limited to all animals -- we do our best to live and work and play with animals with care.  Besides the evidence on film via Whale Wars, there was a time when whales were hunted openly -- and without a second thought or a conscience limiting this avenue stream for profit at all.

Matter of fact, much of the education supporting  the proper welfare of animals from the sea, have come directly from programs and outreach through businesses like Sea World.  Through rehabilitation efforts, and actions in the protection of endangered species, the general welfare of animals by Sea World (and many other community aquariums and facilities) -- especially the orcas -- speaks for itself.  [and how about the back story of that new Hollywood movie, Dolphin Tale...is that profiting off of somebody profiting off of a broken tail? and did they have to go to Morgan Freeman for this? what was Winter's cut?]

"The lawsuit details the distinctive traits of orcas, the largest species within the dolphin family, including their sophisticated problem-solving and communicative abilities and their formation of complex communities."

Is that so...then just why haven't they 'communicated there was a problem' like thirty or forty years ago? 

And clearly, most people today appreciate the efforts made, including the general welfare provided, through business ventures/education/outreach like that of Sea World -- than not.  Otherwise, Sea World would be out of business. 

You know what I'm thinking -- giving where America has been heading these days -- if this lawsuit wins, orcas will potentially have more rights than some of us humans living in America.  say what, G?

Hear my cry -- it kinda sounds like a baby beluga -- but if these creatures all of a sudden become "in their own right" in the midst of many Americans losing their "in their own right," then what does that really say? 

Humans in America were given certain unalienable rights  [by God, mind you] and subsequently documented in our Constitution and Declaration of Independence.  These documents protected us equally under the law; not that we would all be guaranteed an equal outcome, but merely guaranteeing equal opportunity; and then, being fully "in our own right" to live, work and play and hopefully, make enough money to actually profit, or at the very least pay for the bare necessities like food and shelter, and thereby granting the freedom to create a life -- accruing property, wealth, and growing a family and maybe even getting a dog -- to be made available in equal portion for us all.  

Redistribution of wealth/property against America's will is unconstitutional.  So, you all [PETA people] wanna talk about slavery?  ...let's roll and I'll throw in a high jump out of the water for free.

The thing is -- the problem is within this growing and incredible resurgence of the hand picking of special preferences and treatment [much like all government regulations, really...like, take for example, subsidies specific to green energy determined better than oil/gas...or, affirmative action extended to one group of citizens over another....or, orcas deemed eligible for human rights but not dolphins....]   Government does a lousy job playing God for everyone and everything under heaven, just sayin'

But back to the new black -- orcas being enslaved by the profiteering land/aquarium owners, no less...

Let's just hope it goes no further than entertainment and perhaps PETA reeling in a few extra bucks for their efforts. 

And Godspeed to Tilikum, Katina, Corky, Kasatka and Ulises...hope you have some kind of deep pockets helping you all out.

Make it a Good Day, G

It's Growing Our Good -- in People, Places, and Things

Dear America,

"I think the best way 
of doing good to the poor, 
is not making them easy in poverty, 
but leading or driving them out of it." 

Benjamin Franklin 
found in  
On the Price of Corn and Management of the Poor  
 via this place:  

Improvement of our experiences and conditions in life do not happen purely on their own; something deep inside us motivates us to change, aspire, and become something bigger and better than the day before.  Often it may come from a mentor, or family member, giving us encouragement and gingerly guiding us in the right direction; while sometimes, it comes from that inner voice... to head in the direction of our God-given talents and never look back; while sometimes, it comes down to a basic need to eat, to survive.

But wherever it comes, in the end, it has to be something we want for ourselves...we have to see that there is something in it for me.

Suffice it to say, Benjamin appreciated this aspect of human nature, to the extent of carving out for himself a platform calling attention to the price society pays by providing a life of ease in abject poverty -- the kind that does no service to anyone, especially for the one who is in it.... for in truth, according to Ben and many others, "the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer."    For a full read, go here.

"On the contrary, 
I affirm that there is no country 
in the world 
in which the poor 
are more idle, 
and insolent." 
again, Ben, speaking of America
...way back when in 1766

Skipping stones across the choppy waters, let me offer you this from another angle -- just a wee bit of wisdom from yesterday's daily horoscope on Yahoo! --
"As uncomfortable as conflict can be, it is not an inherently bad thing.  The waters that rush over stones are literally running them the wrong way, but beauty is the result.  These polished, smooth stones are something more than they could be without a powerful force affecting them....This conflict will polish and improve you."
Mark Lerner @ astrology.com

The thing is, real life experiences -- conditions that rock our world, and sometimes not in a good way -- carry the magnitude and potential to make us better; or, bury us, of course.  It can go either way.

But only in a truly free market is it truly FAIR for all of us at the same time.  That is just a fact.

Cause and effect, reaping what we sow, building ourselves up or tearing ourselves down, is in our own hands as a gift from our Creator; government does nothing but interfere and make things worse.  

Maybe it would be helpful to recognize another fact of life from Ben: "our necessities never equal our wants."

Movies in the mail are not a necessity; and look how quickly the free market reminds us --

see Netflix news...having lost like, 800,000 customers, with it's stock dropping like a big fat polished red rock. Just like that, the marketplace adjusts and when customers are unhappy, uncomfortable in the relationship, they walk. Netflix will either adjust appropriately or go belly up.

Competition is the best natural formation of regulation in every way.

Here's a good interview, looking at this from yet another angle -- also featured via Yahoo!-- with Breakout guy, Jeff Macke interviewing Wayne Rogers:   go here.

Rogers explains the misguided Occupy Wall Street protestors in terms of cause and effect, returning us to the point government regulation forced changes upon the marketplace without thinking it entirely through, without looking a hop skip down the road; sometimes -- this impetus to change -- something wicked this way comes.  (Wall Street merely took advantage of the conditions legislated by Congress.)

And then other times -- it is all good:
"We hear of the conversion of water into wine at the marriage in Cana as of a miracle. But this conversion is, through the goodness of God, made every day before our eyes. Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards; there it enters the roots of the vines, to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy. The miracle in question was only performed to hasten the operation, under circumstances of present necessity, which required it."
~ in a letter to Abbé Morellet in 1779

"I’ve lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing Proofs I see of this Truth — That God governs in the Affairs of Men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his Notice, is it probable that an Empire can rise without his Aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings, that except the Lord build the House they labor in vain who build it. I firmly believe this, — and I also believe that without his concurring Aid, we shall succeed in this political Building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our Projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall become a Reproach and Bye word down to future Ages."
~ in a speech to the Constitutional Convention, 28 June 1787

With many thanks to "Kevin Stilley Dot Com" for making possible an easy encore presentation of Benjamin quotations for use @ poor G's american almanac...

A nation's true wealth is in it's people -- growing our good, inside and out.   

If our competitive spirit returns to the marketplace of creating good, virtuous, creative, industrious, able-bodied and busy people -- all will be just fine, and maybe, quite possibly, really really good for all of us at the same time.

Make it a Good Day... is what I say everyday
and it is no accident...
as a matter of fact, it is quite purposeful in every way
Make it a Good Day, G

It's All About Bulls and Bears, Hawks and Rats, getting along in a Free Market Thing

Dear America,

just sorry I missed the take down.

wow G, way to start all cryptic for a monday morning...but go on...this ought to be good...carry on...

Well, before I get to some esplainin' to do, let me begin noting the explanations of a president when asked about the undeniable onset of his crown of grey hair:  ""My grandfather was grey by the time he was 29.... So I figured it was going to come. It just happened to coincide with the presidency..." a president's remarks in an interview with Jake Tapper for ABC.


alrighty then -- let's run with that -- hereditary, like as in the inherent bent to run Socialist and Marxist policy all willy nilly here, in America, of all places? is that the same thing?  it all just happened to coincide with the presidency?

is it just me?  but funny how a little narcissism can go a long, long way; even to the point of preventing himself from admitting the cold, hard truth -- grey hair is just what happens to a president (before and after pictures prove it so).

So, Mr.O, get over yourself.
As a matter of fact, how about you just consider yourself one of us; this whole grey thing....it's just what happens to most people.   And like the rest of us, stress contributes to speeding up the process every time...  end of story.

Or maybe, you could have just said something to the effect of, grey hair is just a fact of life -- even attributing to such stats and information from real science [because you like math and science a lot], like as in an article like the one I found on Slate, you can read for yourself here.

It's the same odds for everyone:  by the time 50% of all people reach the age of 50, they will be at least 50% grey...50-50-50 rule...

Or did he actually think this stretch of mother nature's will was going to reassure us in some kind of warped way? as if it sounded better that it wasn't the stress of the job, but merely the imperfection of something in his genes, was more to blame? Like, it wasn't his fault -- it's more like it was God's fault, for the way he was made...and how his father was made...and how his father was made...and so on.

right, Mr. President -- we get it.  nothing is too much for you to handle; how silly of us to think that the job itself could be at fault for the temple's grey you got going on these days.

I just can't help but notice though -- it is far easier for the president to admit, and define said genus of the inherent grey gene to fits of heredity, but when it comes to explaining the redistribution gene [none other than the one safely disguised and hidden in the sleepy hollows underneath] and, subsequently, linking it to the science of really bad Marxist policy far and wide, he will deny his ideological roots like the plague.  No, he can't even talk about it.

Now....talk about issues.

His entire family  -- both white and black -- is rooted in the power of the state to solve all ills; and we elected this man president?

But nooooooo, let's talk about his grey hair and get a good chuckle out of it, shall we?

just sorry I missed the take down
take two

What I really wanted to talk about today was the splendid magnificence of the free market; something that our young gun president with the grey hair coming right on cue knows either very little about -- or, understands just enough to make things worse [to lead people to just more government] -- or, understands it so well, he knows just what it will take to bring it all crashing down [to force people into more government whether we want to or not].

And speaking of greater clarity and distinction along these lines, The Daily Bell offered it's readers yesterday an interview with Jeffrey Berwick that seems well worth the twenty or thirty minutes it will require of you taking it all in.  But must warn you, however; some of it borders on rather extreme ideas, challenging beliefs many of us grew up with and all.

[While this may be a good time to remind everyone who comes my way that with regard to everything I bring to your attention, it is for you to decide what resonates with you and what does not ....Who am I, right?   I'm just a girl....what do I know...la di dah di dah]

But if you dare to venture there, click here.

just sorry I missed the take down
take three

okay. I promise you now...here it is...
so a couple of days ago, I became a first hand witness to the free market being alive and well. Some of you might insist on calling it Survival of the Fittest, given that the circumstances begin to look awfully familiar to the whims and fancies of the call of the wild, answering to the inherent need for food.  But don't fool yourselves; it is the free market at it's best and brightest and deadliest.

Months back you may remember the day I was telling you about the rat poison incident -- and my baby Boo who just so happened to have eaten a piece of the little blue chunk of it in the corner of my garage. Two weeks later -- after days of lethargy, no appetite, heavy Vitamin K therapy and enough prayer vigils to cure everything in a mile's radius -- Boo was fine.  

This was after two cars in the parking lot had a creature chew up it's insides, wreaking one car's alarm system in it's entirety, and knocking out enough hoses and electrical lines to prevent the other one from starting [thankfully, neither car mine...but we're all in this together, you know....ew, rats... seriously?].
Subsequent to the poisoning episode and property damage and a zillion calls to the property manager later, traps were laid out.  And we waited.

and waited.
and waited.
pesky little devils...

Well, just last Friday, Boo and I were walking along the same path we always go -- I let go of the leash for just a moment or two  to drop the garbage in the dumpster, and no sooner that I pick it up, this gorgeous bird flew across the driveway and caught my eye.  It was a hawk, with a wingspan of what looked like four feet.  Truly Gorgeous!   She took my breath away [and why I am calling her a girl, I have no idea]  But in that very same instant, I began to wonder, hmmm, what on earth is going on?  why are you here?  why now? ....as goosebumps quickly gave me a shiver.

And within seconds, Boo is on the hunt! Pulling me in a direction my arm did not want to go.  

And the next thing I knew, a rat and Boo were face to face, with Boo's fur beginning to stand up now, as if he were psyching himself up for a rumble (little dogs think they are all that, even when they know not what they do).  I, of course, screamed like a girl and jumped out of my skin and went running in the opposite direction...with the pooch in tow (like he had a choice, you know).

While the walk -- it was as good as over.

Flash forward about a half hour later, sitting at the living room window, watching the world go by,  when a movement down below catches my attention.  It's her; thinking to myself, 'so, we meet again' (only this time from a distance we can both enjoy.)  She is sitting atop a tuft of ice plant on the hillside, looking into the bushes; while I'm wondering, does she happen to have her sights on the rat-bastard from the walk?  It's kinda hard to tell what's going on, as all the stippled, muted shades of beige and brown and green run together with the naked eye.    Nature's mosaic wouldn't give anything away, if not for that every now and again something moves.

And all of a sudden she did; you know, move.
And Lo and Behold, she was already standing on the muthr futhr.
And a second later, she was pulling out a long red stringy thing from it's guts. You go girl...
and oh what a hunka munka she turned out to be. While thinking about it is making me squirm all over again...

But this brings me to where I came in -- just sorry I missed the take down; after all this time, manipulation and packaging -- the thing that worked was the free market left to it's own devices.

......without any manipulation from outside sources
......without money spent on a single job to lay the trap that was made in China to catch a rat in America
......without a regulation demanding habits be changed or taxes be levied to control the population (that goes for rat and people and birds of prey)

-- it was only in the natural that could get it done.

And really would have liked to have seen it.

Sure, it's an over-simplification of serious economic conditions based on truth and consequences, reaping what we sow, supply and demand, in boom or bust, success and failure, even if it hauntingly reminds us to call upon our Darwinian survival skills learned of in sixth grade; it's a free market thing.

Whether in Tech bubbles and Housing Bubbles...Internet booms and busts, in banking booms and busts, Wall Street booms and busts, Central Banking booms and busts -- it works the same way for all of us, large and small....from mom and pop to wall street...whether all by our self or in the collective -- the nature of the beast works all the same.

And it all begins with our individual freedom to choose everything; even if, sometimes, we run the risk of losing everything.  In a truly free market there are no guarantees (just ask that Jeffrey Berwick guy -- did you read all about it? -- or ask George Soros how he loves the free market, taking down currency in a single bound...or just ask Bill Gates how the free market has worked for him...or ask Micheal Moore how much he loves the free market people going to his free market movies...or when you get to heaven, just ask Steve Jobs how failure really worked out for him...IN THE FREE MARKET!...ahhh, you get my drift....)

We all play in the same realm; even though there are no guarantees, history proves that the best thing to do is allow nature, and natural law, to take its course. Haven't we learned anything by now?

The thing is -- what we choose to pass onto our children (including, but not limited to, ideology, good character...and yes, even a grey hair or two) becomes the very foundation of the next generation; naturally,  it becomes the stuff that makes America.  Of course, some things are more important than others. (A few greys by the age of fifty, who gives a rat's a$$, right? -- but what about the stuff we can't see from the outside?)

hmmmmm....now there's something to talk about.

Make it a Good Day, G

my apologies for the long winded G...
but you know,
it's a free market
in a free world
for at least another day
yea me!

It's a Republic Thing -- Do You Know the Difference?

Dear America,

it's all about scale --- total liberty to no liberty.

This is the starting point in a conversation delving into the differences between The Tea Party and the Occupy Wall Street protests.  Take ten and watch GthingTV -- or jump to the next video to catch the long wind version of the same thing:

thank you "800mEric" via youtube!

And if you happen to have thirty minutes -- watch this:

thank you "davnxs" via youtube!

"it wasn't what government did...it was what government was prevented from doing that made the difference."

Considering we are currently witnessing the anarchy phase on many fronts, and recognizing the gift of understanding when we know our history with regard to the rise and fall of civilizations large and small, the John Birch Society videos quickly conclude that the next phase is tyranny through oligarchy.   And really, if you think about it, we are nearly there now.

The Power Elite --

....those controlling the activity of the Central Bank -- the flow of money and the specifically, the printing of money and the growing of a serious national debt

...to those in high office legislating law and regulations, bailing out banks with the people's money, to partnering with private industry, and infiltrating media in order to control how the general public thinks and reacts by way of propaganda

Over time, this formula of the Power Elite meeting up with the power of government creates the very conditions to lose the people's Republic; soon, we return to a time of tyranny, as the government becomes the master and the people become the slave.  Our nation of freedom and liberty for all comes crashing down.

While our founders predicted as much.

"Only a virtuous people
are capable of freedom.  
As nations become corrupt and vicious, 
they have more a need of masters."  
Benjamin Franklin

America's culture, spirit of free enterprise, and prosperous future relied entirely upon the people to remain virtuous -- to be honest, charitable, trustworthy, industrious, hard working, responsible, dutiful, faithful, self-reliant, and on and on and on.

The thing is -- "the public thing," the Rule of Law, the Republic of the United States of America, is being stifled by the Mob.... an organized, mobilized, loud and unlimited power and scope of an overzealous government coupled with the power of unions and fractions of our citizenry who feel entitled to the wealth of others without earning it. This is anti-American in every way.

Our inherent rights, duties, and natural freedoms do not come from government; they come from a higher power; this is the truth and the very basis and reason back behind making good, sound, self-government the cornerstone of our nation's foundation.  If we lose good self-government, we lose everything.

What is the difference between the Tea Party and the Occupy Wall Street protests?

Strong self-government...

Limited power of government vs. oligarchy running amuck.

Self-reliance vs. Government reliance.

Private ownership vs. Government ownership.

and on and on and on.

Make it a Good Day, G

hope you enjoyed the show.

It's Time to Hang the Establishment Clique out on the Flagpole ...Thing

Dear America,

"... not running for president, 
sort of strolling for president 
without an infrastructure. 
It’s pretty and cute and nice 
but whether or not it works
we can be doubtful.”

assessing the immediate situation,
playing media mean girl, 
to engineer an outcome on behalf of the establishment,
some time 'this week' 
alongside another one of my favorite people, 
Christiane Amanpour.

"it's pretty and cute and nice but whether or not it works we can be doubtful?"  really, Mr. Good Will hunting?

And  let me guess, because it's you saying so we should all just bow our heads in allegiance to the conservative pundit king waltzing through the halls of poly-sci in the nth degree, even though it oozes with unsubstantiated brute pettiness... who are you and more important, whom do you serve? you're, like, reminding me of a surreal moment, like, with the way-back-then wanna-be first lady.  Remember this one everybody? 

but to think -- it wasn't as if your sassy remarks were directed at, like, just a girl, out of the blue, or something; it's not like it was in response to some kind of homegrown, pink, and proud to be an American girl candidacy rising up out of nothing to nowhere and unexpectedly running away with the polls...

you, GW [ew, awkward], were speaking to a real live viable candidate with the real life credentials to back himself up.   unbelievable is all I got to say.

oh the establishment.... they simply know not what to do.

And can't help but notice how the egregious cutesy-pie commentary  was just laughed off -- if not otherwise totally, like, you know,  ignored.

It's like as if that guy is so unprepared, like, you know -- or worse, he's just so unwilling to don the RINO accessories like the way the designer beltway babes and boys do it --  let's just make fun of him and see how quickly we can turn his life into a living hell.  He's just not the brightest bauble in the jewel box, if you know what I mean...

So let's get to it -- just who is GW ditching in the quad?

Herman Cain.

But oh thank heaven for our tried and true friends, right?  Simply those who come along at just the right time complete with all the right things to say. Go to Star for more.

The thing is -- 
we have seen the damage 
that political cliques can do.  
...And how.  

While for many, mean girls and boys abound, bouncing off the walls and lockers and masquerading around like all that -- looking more like, a lowering of our standards...calling each other names....undermining the hope for achieving any real unity...masterminding a drift from principles en masse for so long now, we have abandoned whatever good we had going for us three years back, like freshmen, or something.  And it feels like all the attention has turned to the dark side at the same time.

Even when we see GOOD genuinely walking around with common sense, sound principle, and a firm faith -- we have grown to deny it, discredit it, proving that we have grown totally uncomfortable with the duty and responsibility that comes with it; it's called a real change, and a turn back to the things that make America pretty darn great.    Cool even.  Some might even call it a homecoming to believe in, offering something for everyone [as in, equal opportunity does not always equate to equal outcome].

Truth is, when we are in it -- and sounding hauntingly familiar with the glory days of yesteryear -- little do we really understand until we are through it; little do we truly grasp and differentiate as to what is essential and pure of intentions, and what is not.

Speaking of which, let's return to Humanities 102 and a little Emerson to finish the day:

"The world globes itself in a drop of dew...Eyes, ears, taste, smell, motion, resistance, appetite, and organs of reproduction that take hold on eternity, -- all find room to consist in the small creature. So do we put our life into every act.  The true doctrine of omnipresence is that God reappears with all his parts in every moss and cobweb.  The value of the universe contrives to throw itself into every point.  If the good is there, so is the evil; if the affinity, so is the repulsion; if the force, so the limitation."

Each of us holds the power to be the change we want to see in order to create an educated student body we can really believe in -- one safely held to a higher standard of a limited government, one that we can entrust with our utmost respect for long term security, solvency, ensuring future prosperity and happiness for us all.

"right is right even when nobody is doing it; 
wrong is wrong, even when everybody's doing it."
wee bit of wisdom 
from a somebody or a nobody
what does it really matter anymore, right?

and lookey there,  we truly are back in high school and so right on the ASB money.

Let us hope all credibility is not all lost in something simply too cute to properly vet, again (no offense, Michelle, my belle, but we've been there, done that)  While hanging by a moment here with you, it works much the same way as 'too slick,' too...just sayin'

Perhaps someone should whisper in GW's ear a little something something to let him IN on what's really IN these days, for he seems to be living in sooooo two thousand and eight -- taking us back to a time when the establishment gave us McCain.   ew. and double ew. [Heads up:  drop the mick and we just might have  something to talk about]

Peer pressure does not live here anymore [unless, of course, it's setting the right example].

Make it a Good Day, G

It's When Some Nazi's are a Good Thing? huh?

Dear America,

so -- where is she now?

When Nancy was flying off the mouth and making busy casting the Tea Party Movement as 'astroturf' during the time of heated debate over health care, she was, sadly, so mistaken [this is just G trying to be really sweet this morning...starting slow...it is Monday, after all].

If only calling the movement 'astroturf' was as bad as it could get, right?

Nancy didn't stop there, did she?   Oh thank heaven for little girls on tape.

The truth is, the Tea Party could not be any more against Nazism, swastikas, and anything else having to do with the big C-word, in general, to their special salute, in particular; communism is not an American ideal we, especially The Tea, live and die for in AMERICA; hardly is it a viable vehicle to create more wealth all the way around, no matter which country we are talking about.

But here is Nancy, grandstanding on a lie, while even the mainstream media let her get away with it.

Flash forward to today in America -- and the Occupy Wall Street Movement.

They have no problem calling themselves commies -- being fully supported and endorsed by communist/socialist/marxist movements within the states and now, expanding all the way around the globe!

Thanks to copy/paste, you don't need to go any further than this (but warning, the shock value may be hazardous to your health) -- but please, press on:

"ANP Report for October 16, 2011

Racial Comrades: I am going to address the issue of this "Occupy Wall Street" fervor that has been sweeping the land like a breath of cleansing air!


This issue is TAYLOR MADE for National Socialists, as well as WN who are serious about DOING SOMETHING - MORE - than shouting "racial slurs" and acting like "poster boys of hate" loons.

After all - JUST WHO - are the WALL STREET BANKERS? The vast majority are JEWS - and the others are SPIRITUAL JEW materialists, who would sell their own mother's gold teeth for a PROFIT. And MORE and MORE people are AWARE of this truth, are not only NOT afraid to TALK ABOUT IT - they're shouting it on WALL STREET!

I urgently URGE all of you to TAKE PART and JOIN IN when these protests hit your neck of the woods. Produce some flyers EXPLAINING the "JEW BANKER" influence - DON'T wear anything marking you as an "evil racist" - and GET OUT THERE and SPREAD the WORD! Put as a "contact point" on your literature, our www.ANP14.com address - it won't immediately "scare off" some of these scaredy-cats for even looking at our FACTS - for FACTS they ARE!

If you are unable to produce your own leaflets - check out the "support" section of our website - there are a LOT of good flyers there to utilize.

This issue reminds me a LOT of the "GASOLINE SHORTAGE" of the 1970's - where National Socialists found a HUGE receptive audience, for our viewpoints - per the JEWISH CONTROL of OUR GOVERNMENT and its insane support for Zionist Israel, and the Arab Oil Boycott that hit OUR people so hard.

As I have so often in the past spoke on - the White Working Class - is going PAST, the BOILING POINT, and is quickly reaching ULTIMATE EXPLOSION! THEY want ANSWERS! THEY want RESULTS! All of which this evil corrupt, decadent JUDEO-CAPITALIST SYSTEM is incapable of giving them. WHY? Because its BOUGHT and SOLD to the CORPORATE ELITISTS who are fast turning America into a "South American" style - THIRD WORLD WAGE-SLAVE STATE - ( complete with MILLIONS of BROWN illegal aliens willing to ACCEPT YOUR JOB for LOW WAGES and NO BENEFITS ) where, currently 3% of the population CONTROL 85% of the nation’s WEALTH! And the "GREAT DIVIDE" is GROWING each and every year that passes.

WE - the WHITE WORKING CLASS - have been LIED TO and totally DECIEVED - just the other day, the system APPROVED THREE MORE so-called "Free-Trade" deals. ALL of which mean that MORE JOBS are going to be SENT OVERSEAS - YOUR JOBS! Don't you CARE? Enough to DO SOMETHING?



 *   If you can stomach any more, listen to the commie conference call here.*
And from another angle, here's a beauty from Michelle Malkin (a girl never short on words, pointed opinion and wit to shake the ignoramus out of their skinhead):

"...Many of these occupiers are primarily occupied as paid rent-a-mobsters for unions, left-wing think tanks and the radical Working Families Party. While one collective hand soaks the taxpayers, the other hand is busy soliciting free stuff. Occupy Los Angeles activists took to Skype on their laptops to solicit donations of iPhones and iPads.

Occupy Wall Street members on Twitter organized an ongoing "#needsoftheoccupiers" drive for everything from batteries and tarps to "gently used" coats and sweaters, wool socks, sleeping bags and energy bars. Occupy Austin organizers publicized their wish list, including a free barbecue grill, portable toilets, extension cords, a Bobcat forestry cutter for clearing brush and network cameras for a livestream.

These are not principled advocates of fiscal responsibility. They are professional freeloaders.

Unlike tea party activists who focused like a laser beam on politicians in both parties responsible for redistributing wealth to Big Business cronies by force, the Occupy Wall Street movement is everywhere and nowhere. The entitled Kamp Alinsky Kids are poaching WiFi and trespassing on private property under the guise of "social justice" but in plain service of themselves.

Their T-shirts and speeches glorify Marxist radicals Che Guevara, Emiliano Zapata and Chairman Mao. They lionize convicted death row cop killer Troy Davis and WikiLeaks collaborator Bradley Manning. They condemn "Nazi Bankers," Jews, Fox News, the American Legislative Exchange Council, Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker, the Koch family and the New York Police Department ("Pigs!"). They promote the illegal alien DREAM Act and 9/11 Trutherism...."  read the whole thing @ The Patriot Post here.

So here's the thing -- and perhaps this is a first --  but do we have Nazi's condemning Nazi's?

While how is it possible that Nancy is sitting mum?  I thought Nazi's were bad (cuz they are) but just where is she on this?  The Occupy Wall Street protestors have actually come right out professing their allegiance to the dark side, leaving no room for any doubt.  Just where is Nancy denouncing every lock, stock and barrel in a sea of red?

No. Scratch that.  Who gives a flyin' *&$% where she stands.  I want to know where my American president is on this?

And lo and behold, we got a glimpse of where he plans on going with this just yesterday.  White House Spokesman, Josh Earnest, reassured Obama's supporters, saying, "the interests of the 99 percent of Americans [will be] well represented on the tour" [yes, another bus tour is underway as we speak]  Announcing the new narrative of the "99" which will undoubtedly be freely strewn about willy nilly in the next generation of speeches and townhall meetings.

And from our President, at the MLK Memorial, he gave us this to go on:

“As was true 50 years ago, as has been true throughout human history, those with power and privilege will often decry any call for change as divisive. They'll say any challenge to existing arrangements are unwise and destabilizing. Dr. King understood that peace without justice was not peace at all.”  For more on this, go to "streaming faith" here.

You would think an African-American president in particular, and an American citizen, in general, would take exception to the Nazi Party, Communist Party of North America, and Socialist/Workers of the World Unite People's Party taking ownership of the Occupy Wall Street in any way, shape or form.  But then again, this is the way of Rules for Radicals -- this is "the difference between being a realistic radical and being a rhetorical one." (just a little something out of the mouth of Alinsky himself)

The Organizer-In-Chief is just getting started.
THIS is what democracy looks like and where "power and privilege" got us over the last 1000 days.

What to do, what to do, when a son of sixties radicals leads a nation into nirvana-- or is it total oblivion?  Let's ask Nancy.

Make it a Good Day, G

really never thought I would live to see the day a communist mentality not only takes a foothold, but actually has anyone giving them credence. yikes.

It's a Massive Republic Take Down in the Park Thing

Dear America,

Happy Friday.
Our days of real, unadulterated freedom are numbered.

There is shocking propaganda circling the airwaves -- but before I get to that, let us review a quick review of the "Early Signs of Fascism;" it is posted right outside the door of my girl's World History classroom.

And just an idea, if you pretend this bucket list is being projected through a loud speaker echoing from the rooftops, it will be more fun. So ready, steady, let's begin:

Early Signs of Fascism

Powerful and Continuing Nationalism
Disdain for Human Rights
Identification of Enemies as a Uniform Cause
Supremacy of the Military
Rampant Sexism
Controlled Mass Media
Obsession with National Security
Religion and Government Intertwined
Corporate Power Protected
Labor Power Suppressed
Disdain for Intellectuals & the Arts
Obsession with Crime & Punishment
Rampant Cronyism & Corruption
Fraudulent Elections

getting queasy yet?

Hitler was considered a fascist, mobilizing his agenda under the National Socialist Party (aka Nazi's).

In the other extreme....we get to Socialism and Marxism...and basically applying much of the same but different tactics aiming to redistribute the wealth, destroy capitalism, and flip the continuum of power from the bourgeoisie to the working class using whatever it takes -- from 'peaceful' protests to inciting total violence and revolution.

It's a private park in NYC where the Occupy Wall Street is taking place; Bloomberg [with the boot to his neck]  backed off his request to the protestors to temporarily vacate in order to allow for the management company to clean it up [oh the irony of the environmentalists destroying the grass under their own feet, to the extent of pissing and defecating wherever they please].

But when it comes to crony-capitalism, we can sit a spell on a park bench and read all about it and the 168 Million dollar loan guarantee tied back to Zuccotti Park...Department of Energy chimes in again.

Why should we even allow the democratic process to go any further, right?
Check this out:

'just get it done' --  very dictator-esque, isn't it.  I'm just gonna do everything in MY power to circumvent the congressional power that's out to get me and obstruct my vision of fundamental transformation...

and he is being fully supported by some real winners, too:
just sit here for a spell.


Our founders were quick to recognize a certain truth about human nature and power -- it can get the best of even the best of men.  This kind of authoritarian power must be restrained through the power of Law to tether the lawlessness and corruption of man; while our Constitution was written to protect the very freedoms of little men, NOT big government.

"It would be a dangerous delusion were a confidence in the men of our choice to silence our fears for the safety of our rights; that confidence is everywhere the parent of despotism; free government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence; it is jealousy, and not confidence, which prescribes limited constitutions to bind down those whom we are obliged to trust with power; that our Constitution has accordingly fixed the limits to which, and no farther, our confidence may go...In questions of power, then, let no more be said of confidence in man, BUT BIND HIM DOWN FROM MISCHIEF BY THE CHAINS OF THE CONSTITUTION."  From The 5000 Year Leap, taken from The Kentucky Resolutions of 1798, Annals of America, 4:65-66; emphasis added when quoting the words of Thomas Jefferson.

Our freedom is hanging on our ability to hold certain truths dear, sacred even...untouchable.

I've gone to this next quote often.  From James Madison:

"I believe 
there are more instances 
of the abridgement of the freedom 
of the people by gradual 
and silent 
encroachments of those in power, 
than by violent 

And to tie in some straight talk from a bunch of true libertarians, seek refuge under the tree of life @The Daily Bell and read this take while eating that fried baloney sandwich.

it is the strangest thing, watching a REPUBLIC once so strong and so clear about it's responsibility to limit the power of government slip into quiet revolution turning our tried and true principles upside down and ass backwards, with a smelly park to prove it.

This class warfare &$%* has never ever never ever worked; while making money makes more freedom every single time.  capitalism is not the evil super power to blame -- big government is.

And nothing could be more true, or uttered with more passion, when we end this day with one last shining refrain: Power to the People!

Make it a Good Day, G

and have you noticed deeply embedded in the park that we are back to bashing Jews? since when is this okay in America?

It's a Freedom to Decide for Ourselves Thing

Dear America,

we're talking about freedom this week -- and a whole lot of it.

we've been pre-occupied [badump ba] by the idea of freedom living in a more perfect world as being played out by the Occupy Wall Street protestors...but how about we swing to the other side to record what's going on from the right.

so let's talk about it --
how about the left (along with the GOP establishment, no less) give us a little freedom to decide our own candidate, for mitt's sake.   back off; this is not about you.

the nerve really...

after all we've been through...

didn't the elections of 2010 say enough?

What is funny is listening to the continuing refrain -- oh he's so smooth, such a great debater; he's so cool, calm and collected [ew, where have we heard that before?]; while he's so experienced, you know, like he's been a real governor and everything;  and hey, Chris Christie has stepped up to 'like' him...that's gotta say something... and 9-9-9, what in tar hill is that all about?  is he nuts?...that'ull never work.   so what's the big &%#ing deal if a couple of his own advisers helped out with writing Obombneycare?

Happy Wednesday ya'll -- the latest poll hitting the deny'ers upside the head this morning is showing Herman Cain leading with 30%, Romney at 22% and the rest of the pack trailing behind...

unveiling the immediate reality -- Cain is up by 78% over Romney's twenty-two.

The thing is, if Romney gets the nomination, it will not be without a whole lot of kicking and screaming.

Until then -- we, the people, are free to make up our own freeken mind!

-- Newsflash --
Because the Tea Party
has grown truly organically out of the grassroots...

Because the Tea Party's
true dynamic is auspiciously hidden from view...

Because the Tea Party
feeds off a natural connection at the core...

Because the Tea Party
doesn't care how many names you call it...

Because WE know who we are; we know where we are going; and we know what we like when we see it -- when it is one of us, when it is real and authentic and simpatico with the nation's core beliefs and principles, we cling.

Chuck Schumer is out to bury the Tea Party -- illustrating the way the liberal mind works these days; now that Barack Obama is president, the organizer-in-chief has made it possible to implement Alinsky's Rules for Radicals from the inside out, as planned all along.  While he doesn't have to do a thing; all he needs to do is say the word, show them the way, and his party's talking heads will do the rest, allowing the president to sit back, smelling like a rose, politically unscathed.

At your leisure -- please read this insider talking points memo.

For some reason, the Tea Party is believed to be such a major threat -- whether it is the jobs bill or relating to the upcoming 2012 election -- Chuckie and the DNC have developed a plan for an all out attack.  Using graphs, economic projections, dropping names of economic guys in for good measure, the schumester makes his case.

And today, everyone and their mother seems to be carrying the story -- this from Roll Call.  this from HuffPost. this from The Daily Caller.  this from Politico.

The narrative of the power elite and the establishment both left and right, is that the Tea Party is sooooooo 2010; the latest vibe mounting -- world-wide even --  as in the all for one and one for all @Occupy-any-city-USA, entirely aimed at orchestrating a total reversal of fortune -- is where it's at.

And just in case you need more proof, TIME Magazine adds another dimension, something along the lines of this: tea party people, more or less, suck  -- while the occupiers are all that.  For a decent breakdown of the numbers, here ya go.

Which you know, if the prevailing belief among the yucky yucks and the masses is that the Tea Party is out and Occupy is in, then why all the fuss, Chuck?  You must have had your people spend hours throwing that "tea party economics" memo together; as it turns out, what a waste of time, right?  It only leads me to the believe there is still something in 'the Tea' that you are deathly afraid of...but maybe that's just me.

Besides blaming the Tea Party  for the economic Armageddon going on in Washington, he tries to claim this super-power overrides real Senate control.  This just in:

"We are going to be labeling tea party economics. Tea party double-dip recession. Tea party gridlock. We think that’s going to have a real effect. So in a sense, it’s a sword and a shield. The sword is our effort to do something on jobs. The shield is pointing out what’s keeping us from moving forward.”

A reporter asked Schumer why voters were supposed to blame Republicans for economic outcomes when Democrats control the White House and the Senate. “We don’t control the Senate,” Schumer shot back. “You write that and it’s false.”
 via Ezra Klein, WONKBLOG, The Washington Post.

So we have ridicule -- and all-round-bashing -- pitting the essential liberty of one group against another -- the casting of one agenda as nearly demonic, while calling the other, angels -- and basically, downshifting to a make-believe underworld to remedy the immediate political climate (here's lookin' at you, Schume, who can't seem to control his own -- if you dems really really wanted it, that jobs bill was as good as gold and in the bag -- don't you think we the people have been Lied to Enough Already, pul-leeze) ........

.......But isn't it simply wonderful, freedom of speech, including all the rhetoric you can spew, even in writing, is totally protected in this country....yes, including my own....

Is it any wonder to any of you why Romney can't seem to muster any more than thirty percent?

In a perfect world, the majority of republicans wouldn't have a thing to do with him; that's what the numbers say.

Getting back to my intentions on the day -- the electorate is free to make up it's own mind; and clearly, the first thing that we must do is shut out the media and talking heads -- for they are of no use to us.

We have the freedom to follow our heart, and our minds, telling us to take the road less traveled.

It may take awhile.

and the best news -- we don't even have to announce it to anybody, let alone let Reuters, Bloomberg, the AP, in on our vibe;

it's kinda like that 'twin thing' --
you know, when you don't even have to speak....you know what each other is thinking, even across the miles, the purple mountains majesty, and not long after turning right at the fruited grain.  We just know.  We feel it.

And about that feeling, on the inside, sensing that self-control and all the freedom in the world to effect change...oh my goodness... now that is a good feeling.  It's like a slice of home, a piece of yourself, that is spirit expressing and bouncing around all over the place.  Talk about freedom running wild.  [maybe the difference is we keep our shirts on]

The current climate tells us that we no longer need to hold a sign * -- we are connected spontaneously and effortlessly at the core. and boy, do we cling something fierce.

This is what the establishment is refusing to recognize.

and I say, let them keep guessing.

this may take awhile.
and isn't this fun.

Make it a Good Day, G

* of course, it doesn't mean we can't pick one up; and we will, when it is time.

It's the Freedom to Make It or Break It Kind of Thing

Dear America,

the condition of being free from restraints

liberty of the person from slavery, oppression, or incarceration

political independence

possession of civil rights; immunity from the arbitrary exercise of authority

exemption from unpleasant or onerous conditions

the capacity to exercise choice: free will

-- all found in the American Heritage Dictionary --

and THIS is just the beginning; this is just the start of the discussion of freedom and liberty for all.

You know what freedom looks like?

You know what freedom feels like?

You know what freedom sounds like?

Freedom, in and of itself, is a full spectrum of ideals and experiences unique to each and every one of us. We just know when we're feeling it, loving it and living the dream in it and when we are not.

As the Occupy Wall Street protestors live on to ring in another day of chanting, 'this is what democracy looks like' -- I would like to think that most of us watching the spectacle are just thinking to ourselves, ah, like, no.

The protestors seem quite keen on explaining and protecting their personal freedoms (even if the convoluted message as to the why gets totally lost in the crowd) -- but just how is it possible that these freedom-lovin', bull-horn tootin', loquacious libertarians can't seem to grasp the incredible and incalculable essential missing link?

WE CANNOT TAKE THE FREEDOM FROM ONE PERSON SIMPLY TO GIVE IT TO ANOTHER. America was not designed that way; while the free market doesn't work that way; and this goes without saying, it is not a commodity to trade, give, sell, lose, or barter in any way.  You just wouldn't know it by looking at us right now, now would you?

The protestors seem quite keen on believing that their personal freedom should be shored up, building their rationale upon what seems right and fair in their favor -- but the freedom marker stops right there.  Wall Street, however -- and anyone connected to those dirty, greedy bastards -- should have their freedom cut off at the knees.  &*$% 'em.   Lock 'em all up... or how about this one...something to the effect of  'let's just eat them' [oh and you doubt me?  go here].

and I bet you all wouldn't hurt a flee...probably escort spiders on a magic magazine carpet to safely shoo them out the door...dripping of sweetness and light protecting the dolphins, the whales, that special lizard found only in the northwest quadrant of Texas...  but look out when it comes to certain fellow human beings, real people with a heart beat, a mom, and perhaps a family of their own.  sure, ya love your guns and ammo then, now doncha?

ya know, this just might run counter to what you all assume to be the truth of conservatives everywhere and often -- and directing my thoughts to the roaring props for peace with the rising socialist sun -- but I want you to have your freedom just as much as my own.

I want that for you.
I want you to be happy, healthy, inspired in your daily life to earn a living and grow your own -- whether that is a family, a company, a hedge fund, or a garden of weed(s).  I want that for you. DO you want that for me -- and for all the rest of us you share this land?

Peaceful protests are apart of the fabric of our lives, our history, giving us a snapshot to look back on and say, this is what democracy looks like (then); there is that.

But just think about what you are saying. Think about the hypocrisy underwriting the very platform for which you chant.  Currently, your so-called organic movement is being funded and supplied and made possible with the very money/organization of which you want to annihilate and beat into the ground.   yeah, just move on dot org, nothing to see here...

We could start with the biggest ingrate in the world, George Soros -- given that his brilliant liberal ass made billions off of playing with other people's money and investments, destroying currency, and building up a left-wing empire off of the beauty of the free market, using Wall Street all the way.  We could start there.

But I am having too good of a morning to go there, to dwell on the new King George, any further than that.

Are these kids really that dumb?  Are they really that ignorant of the hand that's played them (the youth) over and over and over again?  Are they really that incapable of connecting all the dots?

As my link above outlines a certain level of absurdity -- given the context of 'we are, after all, dealing with America here'  -- Alex Newman's first sentence says it all:

"Labor unions, communists, “community organizers,” socialists, and anti-capitalist agitators have all joined together to “Occupy Wall Street” and protest against “greed,” corporations, and bankers."
since when has the majority of every day Americans been okay with this "fundamental transformation" -- akin to socialists, communists, anti-capitalists in any way?  just how could even one democrat in office think these kids have their head on straight, endorsing them to carry on [thanks bloomberg], as if deserving to be enshrined in perpetuity as the voice of reason? [God bless 'em, right, Nance...]

Thinking this "redistribution" thing all the way through, is that really where we want to go?

Let me ask you -- picturing a brand new socialist regime ....even more hard core than the one we've got now, if you can imagine that -- would we have more or less personal freedom?

it's a simple question.

If we let "the protestors" have there way and let "Wall Street" -- "Bankers, in general, and many in particular" -- and all evil corporations large and small --  extinguish into thin air -- what kind of real world would we have, besides the spontaneous combustion of total chaos?

Nancy Pelosi has already pulled in over a half a million dollars from Wall Street since the last election; while it has been reported, that Obama has made more money from Wall Street than any other politician over the last twenty years!  Hold up ...let me find some back up for you...here you go.  Here's even more.

ahh sunshine on my shoulders DOES make me happy.

is a philosophy of failure, 
the creed of ignorance, 
and the gospel of envy, 
it's inherent virtue 
is the equal sharing of misery."  

Winston Churchill

and worse,
it feels like slavery,
while to the naked eye,
it looks like 
Occupy Wall Street 
but on steroids,
and smells like
the freedom
to live,
but in ruin

just G

"...Eisenhower built the Interstate Highway System.  Previous generations built the Hoover Dam.  Our researchers developed the Internet.  These people didn’t make it on their own who are now in Silicon Valley.  The reason they’re successful is not only because of their extraordinary work, but it’s because they’re building on the collective effort of America.

Nobody makes it on their own.  That’s what this country is about.  We have always been a land of opportunity and self-reliance and rugged individualism, but we’ve also looked after each other.  We’ve also said we’re in it together..."
Barack Obama,
remarks at a DNC event,
designed to reel in the money...
where it comes from, who really cares, right?

"Nobody makes it on their own. That's what this country is about."  nobody.
so on that note -- tomorrow -- we just might have to start there.

Make it a Good Day, G

It's hey, man, Can't We All Get Along.... Thing

Dear America,

hey man, peace.
Breaking News Update:   @Occupy Wall Street is on the streets in San Diego.

and it is really far out.

One of San Diego's very best, Mike Slater [mornings 6-9am on 760kfmb], a young dude totally dedicated to bringing high grade purple haze ideals and opinion to conservatives everywhere within the listening radius, is on it; he is down there this morning, masquerading as one of them.   Simply calling himself "Mark Hater -- a progressive blogger and radio host"  -- he is talking to every anarchists he can find (which is nearly everyone).

And yet, if somebody were to just jump into his program today at the wrong time -- unaware of what he's actually doing -- it could really throw you off.  There are times when his boy-next-door voice of rational, sound principle starts slipping into another realm....like a never, never land of sorts, before unexpectedly dropping down a rabbit hole of whoa.... dude.

Here are some of the highlights of the wisdom walking tie-dye down Broadway:

Anarchist #1:  when asked to define 'anarchy' ---  'is, basically, like, about being responsible for yourself...people, like, living together in harmony...and you know, like, helping each other out. that's what it's all about.' [paraphrasing, cuz I just couldn't keep up with it all]

Anarchist #2: when asked to define his reality  --  'um, well I'm unemployed right now, but not really looking...I'm kinda like off the grid, man, like growing my own food.  that's what it's all about. we don't need all this stuff...like grocery stores...or like SDG&E...think about it. we survived before without all of it, without electricity, without Iphones.  capitalism is not the way, man.'  [again, paraphrasing the psychedelic dream weaver as best I could]

Anarchist #3:  a direct quote..."humanity comes before profits..."

and naturally, kumbaya is playing in the background.

In between Mark Hater's progressive tambourine routine, the program would also hit us with a commercial from a "sponsor" -- and equally dumbfounding if not tuned in and turned on and in the know.  Running spots for "windmill showers" and one of my favorites, "hemp boxers  -- if concerned for lowering the carbon footprint through the seat of your pants, see the guy in the middle of the park holding a sign next to the guy playing the bongos..." or something like that.

But wait! There's more!  I haven't told you the best part -- on this day in the life in America.

All of this, going on, like, in 256 cities nationwide, is totally supported by the upper echelon of the Democratic party, including our very own Organizer-in-Chief. [did you play a little Marvin Gaye there?...it's one of my favorite songs.    I know, weird.  But we have no time to dwell on that little wonder right now...so moving on dot org...]

Here's our president, from late last week:
“Obviously I’ve heard of it [Occupy Wall Street -- cuz don't tell anyone, I organized it.   shhhh], I’ve seen it on television..."  [um, ah, that's a good one, Mr. President]   "I think it expressed the frustrations that the American people feel that we had the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, huge collateral damage all throughout he country, all across Main Street, and yet you’re still seeing some of the same folks who acted irresponsibly trying to fight efforts to crack down on abusive practices that got us into this problem in the first place. So yes I think people are frustrated and the protestors are giving voice to a more broad-based frustration [using broad-based charades for emphasis] about how our financial system works.”     go here for more.

right.  broad-based. would that be the "99%" by chance?

did you ever think we would ever see the day when we had a president supporting anarchy --  through broad-based, highly misguided, mis-representation of the masses by revolution  -- upon the streets of America? protesting the very essence of our free market, capitalism?

And how could we forget not to tie in our very own Nancy Pelosi, fresh in off her private jet from Haight-Ashbury, as the great sympathizer and co-dependent of the right kind of Astro-turf, I mean, grass root agenda...Her message to the Occupiers:  "God bless them...for their spontaneity. It's independent ... it's young, it's spontaneous, and it's focused. And it's going to be effective."

ahhh but it's awfully hard to keep up with this girl; in February of 2010, the Tea Party was actually beginning to grow on her.   what a difference a day makes, huh Nancy?  she is just blowen' in the wind, however the political breeze blows.

The thing is, it's as if some of us have slipped into the seventies all of a sudden and everybody seems okay with it.   so strange.

But that isn't my point today.   'My thing' has only just begun, ya dig?  Sure the anarchists at large may have started it -- while the broad-based acceptance of it from our democratic leadership is another -- but it got me thinking about one of our first intentions, organically cultivated as first citizens of this great country.

Our inherent birthright -- which came chock full of  responsibilities and duties, to ourselves and each other -- was designed so that we would all be our own banker.

America was created much like the sentiment from anarchist number one -- to be responsible for ourselves and live in harmony with one another.

Perfect.  Sign me up.

While in the beginning, we most definitely had to be responsible for our own bread and water; we grew in community with each another and learned how to share one person's corn with another person's butter -- and turning the lights on by candlelight or kerosene or something or nothing.  we shared the light or we shared the dark, building the community church, the local grocery store, the one room schoolhouse, the jailhouse, the saloon, and even [god help us] the very first bank!

[To the anarchist number two -- is this kinda like what you had in mind?  like living like one local community at a time -- one park per every ten families perhaps? gosh....it almost sounds counter-productive to the whole global one world agenda...cuz how could we really help women in Ethiopia or Children in the Sudan being locked into our own little world, I mean, communities without a word from the outside, without the means to get there, without a concern of anything else outside of our own survival...but maybe that conundrum beat is just in me...so let's keep on keepin' on...]

The thing is, over time, we grew quite good at it, didn't we?  We developed like little country mice and city mice and became known as the leader of the free world in a span of less than a couple of hundred years.

And when it comes to the "school house,"  today, there is not one school fundraiser that does not reap the benefits of our prosperity and the abundance of our corporate-human-nature supply side; from large to small, from the mom and pop to the Fortune 500, all gifts of donations, in cash or in product or in time and energy, and of course,  in spirit, begins and ends with a product of  capitalists large and small.  All of it.

[while who'd a thought we would need all those gifts, right? like, just the federal budget alone is, like, over 100 billion dollars a year.... on just education for pete's sake...and it must be good, right....just look around at the kids today...]

Which brings us back around to anarchist number three, miss humanity-comes-before-profits.  Where did you go to school?  Without a profit there is no gift of donations  in cash, or in kind, or in product, or in time, while all in the spirit of giving back and taking care of our own -- you know, like in community with one another --   let alone the making of a job or two or 100 million.  None of it happens.

Schools benefit.  Community services and charities benefit.  Livelihoods far and wide,  creating the opportunity to grow personal wealth, all benefit.

It isn't long before we all further benefit in the investment of other people's businesses and talent and resourcefulness through applications like the stock market and money market funds and world markets and blah blah blah la di da.

And when this caught on, were soon learned that pensions and retirement funds could be built upon this principle of freedom to invest for the whole -- for the entire lot -- in community with one another -- like, whoa; people like union workers, the private sector employment packages, federal employees, teachers, policemen, firemen, garbage men, mailmen, small business owners and even CEO's of Fortune 500 companies....you name it...we jumped on that groovy gravy train to benefit.  Ta-Da!

Is the system without fraud or faults?  Of course not.

It's called human nature.

It's all comes back to free will, good character vs. bad acts, and the freedom to rise and fall on our own [whether it be with regard to wealth or reputation -- its like we all manufacture our own karma everyday, and bank on it, while the circle goes round and round and round].

It's a story as old as time.

I keep thinking back to that Newsweek cover, "we're all socialists now;" looking back the last several years, it's no wonder how we got here.

Both political parties have veered off the beaten path; and this just leads me to making way for the big finish now...

Instead of reinforcing the founding principle that, in fact, 'we're all bankers now' at the dawn of each new day,  the unruly lot in office, masquerading as the policy-meets-politics-people, have grown to undermine our foundation -- risking fiscal solvency and the very future of the union.

Methodically and systematically, decade after decade, banking upon government regulation, breaking bad with our principles and values, and otherwise opting for greater controls by the power elite, no matter which ideological side was in the majority -- that little rabbit hole we seemed to have slipped into is now a sink-hole the size of North America.

It's beginning to look a lot like if you've seen one hippie, you've seen'em all; and if you put them all together, the competing tie-dye pattern just make mud.

It's all about human nature acting like humans.  There are good companies and there are bad; there are good people, and there are bad; there are good hedge fund guys, and there are bad; there are good public servants, and there are bad; there are good teachers, and there are bad; there are good kids, and there are bad.

The reality is, altogether, what we are witnessing today is what happens when humanity meets up with just more humanity. And we've been here before.

But more than that, can't we -- humanity and profits -- just all get along?

I believe the real America is more GOOD than bad -- look around you, I think you will see it, too.
The broad-based emphasis should be on that.

The real crime is what is going on in Washington.but more on that later.

Peace out,

Make it a Good Day, G

g note: this blaaahg started yesterday, monday, but it's now tuesday.  kinda sorta had a girl-interrupted moment.  Anyway, I left the monday perspective in but didn't want you to be totally dazed and confused on what day it is...

g note deux: you would think, these kids -- being so ANTI bailout [which, by the way, the Tea Party People agree. matter of fact, they started it...but details, right]  but you would think they would go back to the people that printed the monopoly money to do it.  our government went 'passed GO' with no penalty, no protest.  WTF?

g note trois: speaking of double standards...crony capitalism living in the sunshine state of Solyndra is one thing, but Wall Street doled out BIG BUCKS to their maker in 2008 [and a whole lot more than to the republicans] -- and yet, the media, the protestors, the anarchists just love him, still.  wow.
