…except for whole Karl Rove fiasco – you reap what you sow. Sorry to start with this, but I can’t help myself… From wikipedia:

The source of the term is a quotation in an October 17, 2004, The New York Times Magazine article by writer Ron Suskind, quoting an unnamed aide to George W. Bush (later attributed to Karl Rove[1]):

The aide said that guys like me were “in what we call the reality-based community,” which he defined as people who “believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” … “That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he continued. “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”

Okay Karl – we’ll study this past week and watch the conclusions drawn from Karl’s new role in history as someone who reaps the ‘reality’ he has sown, with all his lies, deceit and projection – especially accusing the Democratic party of ‘voter suppression’.

As a Science and ‘Mystically’ based Progressive Liberal, I’m much more relieved than anything. A Romney Presidency was a much more a grim prospect, IMHO… the continued serfdom of the American worker.

But for all my Red State friends, of which there are many – and as anti-evangelic as I am —( I mean that not as ‘Anti-Christian’ but ‘Anti-I have to convince you I am right about something to the point of annoyance’) — I’d like you to explore for yourself, at least, turning off the Faux News and listening to the Liberal Progressive side for a while. I implore you to do this for many obvious reasons, but the main one is this statement: You have been in a ‘Propaganda Bubble’, and purposely lied to, for YEARS. 

For as much as Bill Maher is a pompous jackass in real life, this is a point he has been hammering for the past 2-3 years. This ‘Being in the Republican Bubble’ election results and the Fox News crowd, who have been in this bubble’s reaction proves that he has been right on the money.

So please back away from the Conservative Buffet and at least broaden your perspective.

To prove this point:  David Frum is not my favorite person, but he’s out today with a book published and ready to go called ‘Why Romney Lost’.  On Morning Joe lon Thursday, November 8th, this former NeoCon of the Bush administration admitted what I just stated in the paragraph above. Watch it here:

After Effects Enables Complex Structure of Thought™ — that we can implement, absorb and grow toward the Positive.

This is an excellent video posted by Jennie Hochthanner about the controversial Troy, Michigan Library debacle.  It’s the best example I’ve seen about a positive way to combat the Hegelian Dialectic that confronts us all on a daily basis.  And if you are not familiar with the Hegelian Dialectic, watching this video is a must. And this is incredibly important in understanding what is going globally today.


In order to make the larger point and teach an important lesson, the small group of Troy Citizens demonstrate a number of incredibly relevant things, especially now in this complex, woven tapestry of reality we share. I will let you draw your own conclusions about their actions and what they did – but it is brilliant, and I commend their valiant effort.

But Jeannie Hochthanner’s incredible visualization of the events, thru the power of Adobe After Effects and (I imagine) Final Cut Pro – weaves the visual tale in a way that compliments and enhances the explanation of the narrator, even more so than just canned footage of the Participants. Nice Job Jeannie.

This technique is so vital and incredibly needed today. And it is a great example that sets he table for all of us to hurdle barriers that keep us from understanding, on many levels.

We seem to be repeating history in varying degrees because we keep falling for all the same old ‘tricks’ – the most recent Anti-Muslim Film being the latest example. I believe this is because the people responsible for funding and putting out the film are attempting to achieve the desired response of Turmoil and Conflict.

I heard about this for the first time yesterday – but I am just seeing it in the Main Stream Media today – here’s a link to the story. This is a direct, manufactured attack by this newly-elected leadership in the Republican majority in Wisconsin. This is a direct result of the recent supreme court decisions made by the Citizens United Case… which is a 1984 Double Speak if I’ve ever heard of it.

I’m Sorry, but the interests of the Ruling Class are not going to be happy until they turn this country into Bangladesh and we’re all scurrying for scraps of wages of pennies on the dollar! Never mind the Invisible Tax on the poor called Inflation, which is ramping up quite nicely right now, thank you.

From what I have heard from Progressive talk radio, this is the 6th day of protest, with the numbers growing every day… and the MSM is going to ignore this story unless people start talking about it.  So Please click on the link below and feel free to share, tweet, talk to your friends and relatives about what is going on here.

My spin on this is – ‘Isn’t There Enough Pie for All®?’  To what purpose is it to rob from those who make barely survivable wages to give giant corporations and their boards of directors huge tax breaks? To Paraphrase Ed Schultz: ‘This is the blueprint for the Corporatocrasy to suck even more wealth from the working people, from healthy pensions that have funds for years to come so that they can get their hands on the worker’s money’.

George Carlin, who is not only one of the greatest Comics but IMO a modern-day Prophet, predicted this Exact thing almost 10 years ago –

As George Said – ‘They’ve got you by the balls…! They’re coming for your Pension! They want it Back!’

This is EXACTLY what is going on right now, and thank you to Baardseth and Billy Vegas for the video and Tarfin for the verbiage:  Here’s the whole transcript of Carlin’s Prophetic tirade:

‘But there’s a reason. There’s a reason. There’s a reason for this, there’s a reason education SUCKS, and it’s the same reason it will never … ever … EVER be fixed. It’s never going to get any better, don’t look for it, be happy with what you’ve got. … … … BECAUSE … THE OWNERS, OF THIS COUNTRY, DON’T WANT THAT! … …

I’m talking about the real owners now … … … … … the BIG owners! … … … The Wealthy … … … … … the REAL owners! … The big wealthy business interests that control things … and make all the important decisions. … … … … Forget the politicians. They are irelevant. … … The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice . . . … you dont. You have no choice! You have OWNERS! They OWN YOU.

They own everything. They own all the important land. … They own and control the corporations. Theyve long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. … They got you by the balls. … … They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying … . . . lobbying, … to get what they want . . . … Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else,

BUT Ill tell you what they dont want . . . they dont want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. … … They dont want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. Theyre not interested in that . . . that doesnt help them. Thats against their interests. Thats right. … … They dont want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly theyre getting FUCKED by a system that threw them overboard 30 FUCKING years ago. … … They dont want that!

You know what they want? They want obedient workers . . . Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. … And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shitty jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now theyre coming for your … Social Security money. … … … They want your retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street, and you know something? … … … Theyll get it . . . theyll get it all from you sooner or later cause they own this FUCKING place!

Its a big club, and you ain’t in it! … … … … You, and I, are not in The big club. By the way, its the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table has tilted folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care!

Good honest hard-working people . . . white collar, blue collar it doesnt matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-working people continue, these are people of modest means . . . continue to elect these rich COOK SUCKERS who dont give a FUCK about you. ( Hello Wisconsin… Are you Listening? ) They dont give a FUCK about you . . . … they dont give a FUCK about you. …. …. They dont care about you at all . . . at all . . . at all, and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care.

Thats what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick thats being jammed up their assholes everyday, because the owners of this country know the truth. Its called the American Dream, … cause you have to be asleep to believe it . . .”

This is EXACTLY what is happening with this Country, RIGHT NOW. We have Let the powers that be choose this direction of ‘To Hell with the Middle Class, with Working People’ ( Thom Hartmann pharaphrase ) and the only thing that matters is the whims of the Ownership Class.

But Again, can’t we make it to where there are no losers in this reality, and to a certain degree ‘Can’t Everybody Win®?’

‘Isn’t There Enough Pie for All®?’



There’s a Blog I enjoy very much called Ethics Alarms that I have been following over the past 3-6 months… and I enjoy it because I don’t always agree with what he says. As a matter of fact he’s very right of center. The big difference in what he writes is that he calls people to the carpet on either side of the aisle. I stumbled upon his blog after a google search of ‘Ethics’ – and I have been a subscriber ever since.

This Blogger, named Jack Marshall, pumps out maybe 5-10 posts a week… a volume that I find hard to fathom. It takes me forever to get rolling on an entry, but since I contacted him to ask permission to talk about this particular exchange he’s written 4+ postings. But there is a particular post in which I am completely at odds with his opinion, to the point of where we both think each other is completely wacky for each’s respective perspective.  Read the rest of this entry »


PART I

The purpose of this particular post is to try to wrap my brain around a theory I have had in my head for quite awhile, and to try to explain it to you. The events over the past couple of weeks/months that we’ve all witnessed regarding to where things fall in the “Linear” political spectrum, ( mainly Glenn Beck and his Magic Chalkboard )  using the labels the ‘Left’ or the ‘Right’ in regards to politics, have started to touch on this theory.  This helped me pull down a semblance of this Idea Grouping, this Structure of Thought™ , that I have been trying to manifest for at least the past 5+ years.

And I’m not kidding when I say I’ve been thinking about this ‘Thought Structure’ for a few years… the proof is in the viewing of either of my 2 earliest digital collages here and here. This is where all these “types” of thoughts I have come from, and how they look to me. The Structure of Thought™ is what I call it… and it is really hard for me to put something so… etherical?  into words that even myself can understand.

In The Daily Show's brilliant parody of Glenn Beck, Jon Stewart mocks Glenn's pattern of drawing on the chalkboard similar graphics to what I've been working on in my own little brain.

 

So let me set the table by saying that it’s hard to articulate these Thought Structures™, for lack of a better term, or “theory of forms,” as I think Plato called them, at least for me, coming at it from the artistic viewpoint.

My goal for this fairly extensive post is to convey the idea of how the political parties and factions thereof can be labeled and analyzed within the Structure of Thought™.

First and formost,  look at the Banner ‘The Structure of Thought™’ above. You can see the graphics I put together for the title of this particular Blog. These are not just for decoration… they actually mean something to me, and hopefully try to explain my perception to you, fair reader.

When I look at them I know they convey a method that, if used with interchanging variables that is measured with absolutes, can help us Humans more refine, label and direct anything, from economics, policy, acts, thoughts, deeds… into a “more perfect” way to help measure decision and choice.

This procedure, in turn,  helps “sharpen our pencil” so to speak to more closely mimic nature, find solutions to problems, refine arguments, make better decisions, decipher right from wrong, etc. etc.

And as in Nature, there is Beautiful Structure of Thought™, and there is terrifying, paradoxical, repulsive Structure of Thought™… the thesis statement of this exercise could be said that the more beautiful, natural ways we shape our Thought Structure™, the more functional, effective, moral, ethical way it will effect all of us.

What're ya, Fuckin’ Stoopid?

What, are you people F*%#&!’n STOOPID?

Oh, I’m sorry, didn’t mean to offend, didn’t mean to put anyone off by my “intro demeanor.”

Yeah so I’ve been dead awhile… A little over a year now.  June 22 of 2008, to be exact. And I didn’t realize dying on the Summer Solstice was such a big deal. But it is. You’re gonna have to trust me on that one, but that’s not why I am writing this f&%$#n’ BLOG.

Bllllog. What the hell is a blog anyway? You f&%king human beings.

So it’s been awhile since I’ve had a “chat” with any of you, me being passed on to the next thing and all. and I have some pent-up energy to lay out here… and I’ll get to how Pussified the Health Care Debacle has become as long as you keep reading.

But First off, let me tell ya, being dead… ya know—being dead is pretty f&$king cool!

That is, as long as you didn’t completely f&%k up while you were alive…!

So Being Dead. Let me tell ya about it. Being dead gives your soul, your essence, that which is unique in the universe, your own, unique self, the unexplainable paradox that which is “you”—a chance to reflect upon all that is. In other “words,” Death gives you… Perspective. … Per—spec—tive.

And, since time doesn’t really exist here where, fortunately for all of you, I still AM, M’KAY? ….it’s a little hard to “put” into “words,” …and you remember how much I love words and language.

S**t I based my whole  career talking about F&%kin’ Words!

Well, it’s the halfway point in the 2009 baseball season, and I thought this would be a good time to throw my hat into the ring in regards to this familiar and annoying topic. I’ve had this conversation with many people, as all baseball fans tend to do amongst themselves.

Why can’t they pay baseball players according to their statistics, instead of to what their potential seems to be? How many times have we seen a guy sign a big contract, for zillions of dollars, in ANY sport, not just baseball—only to see the athlete just tank and under-perform the next season.

Then there’s the owners, all the variables that go along with running a league, merchandising, licensing, agents bargaining… so many things that affect the bottom line in regards to any pay structure, and to expand, on any economic model. And as an artist and not being born with a left-side of my brain (I use that part of my skull for Christmas ornament storage),  talking money is a true stretch for my poor little lonely right brain to handle.

So I don’t know why I am obsessed with how I think ‘we’ should pay baseball players—maybe it’s because it has led me to a way to combine different Structures of Thought™ on how to cope with this March to Ruin that is our economy right now—or whatever the corporatocracy wants us to believe at this moment in history. Since the entire system is basically shot, now is the time to just change the whole structure—not just the Thought Structure, but the entire economic process. And we can start by trying it out on how we pay baseball players.

This is the start of a framework for this pay structure. It melds lines of thought into different branches of how to handle the different ways to pay, through the separate schools of thought. The roots of where the revenue comes from is the green circle, and this Visual Display of Quantitative Information (thank you Edward R. Tufte) is just a first draft as to how it could work. And I believe this could be applied across the board to other revenue-driven models.

And I believe this could be applied across the board to other revenue-driven models.

First of all, the NFL more closely follows this model, by somewhat pooling all their revenue and approaching the distribution of money within the league, the use of salary caps, and the loose philosophy that health of the league as a whole is in the best interest of all teams, and that parity within the league gives all a better chance at winning. Plus it keeps all fans interested, because every year their team has a chance. Read the rest of this entry »


I found this audio selection about six months ago, and I have listened to it maybe 10-15 times since. I think I had heard of Earl Nightingale before, and he reads this philosophy very convincingly. And I really like how it starts… Men simply don’t think. How true is this in our million mile an hour world today?

There is a lot of insight and truth in this message—and it’s obvious even today with all the hubbub that popped up about “The Secret” about what, 2 years ago now? Read the rest of this entry »


This is a short entry… been too busy to blog, but I have seen some great videos over the past two weeks.

This girl, Severn Cullis Suzuki,  was only 12 years old when she gave this speech at the UN Earth Summit in 1992… I guess the powers that be just clapped along and didn’t listen one bit. Nor care. Too much money to be made.

I’ve never seen a braver articulation of truth to power… can you imagine someone that young getting up and speaking in public today? It’s hard to imagine. Does anyone out there have any examples they can share, of young kids delivering such wisdom?

Here’s a video of her now, Promoting RARE, the program she helped found way back when:

Doesn’t all this make so much sense, especially now, in 2009… with 17 years removed from that moment?

It’s me hope that we are waking up.  I think we are. More later… hope everyone’s well.

Oh, and feel free to make comments… not getting very many comments lately.


‘The mind is like a parachute—it doesn’t function unless it is open.’

It’s an annoying quote, but it is true. And like one of my favorite quotes from Voltaire – ‘I (may) not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it,’ Free speech is a beautiful thing, when it is used with brilliant analogy, tact, and truthful, organized, Positive Thought Structure™.

MEP Daniel Hannan from England—once an unknown “backbencher” in Parlament is becoming an overnight sensation in our New Electronic Age… for this speech, or I should say ‘Flambe’ of PM Gordon Brown of Great Britian.

As an open-minded Spiritualist slash tree-hugging Bleeding Heart Artist that I am, I will acknowledge ANYONE who speaks Truth to Power—and what Daniel says from the right side of the aisle makes an incredible amount of sense to me. He’s young, ( 37 ) obscure, and politically green – until now.  My theory is that he’s too new to have been bought off by the NWO secret government  banking cartel that is trying to vacuum up every last penny, freedom and control mechanism in this physical realm we call existence on planet earth.

Hopefully his bravery of shaking the tree will jostle even more of us to awakening to the fact that there is a struggle ongoing for all of our hearts and minds… Check out his apperance on the Faux Netwerkz’ ‘Your World with Neil Cavuto’:

I absolutely love watching Cavuto physically Flinch when Hannan expresses his admiration for Ron Paul—that’s pretty much worth the price of admission itself right there. And it once more shines the light of truth on the difference between those on the dole for anything from special interest to the illuminati, and someone who has his own brain, his own soul, his own mind, and speaks with certainty, truthfulness, and conviction.

If the Conservatives in this country were this articulate, had a plan ( Hannan has written a number of books, the latest being The Plan: Twelve months to renew Britain ) and thought with their heads instead of their ‘Wankers’ and Faux religious Facades, and didn’t look at everything as with/against, Black/White, I’d give them more credit like I am giving this guy.  Keep making sense and Creating Positive Thought Structure™ for all of us, Daniel… anything to drag the powers that be into a more benevolent physical existence.

Read this Blog entry by Daniel… he’s thoughtful, insightful, humble, articulate… and he sums up the ending of my particular blog entry much better than I can. Again, Bravo – and Conservatives – take a lesson from this Kid. Hopefully his convictions, morals and spine with remain strong and pure of heart.
