You have to hand it to Karl Rove and the Republican Think Tank$ – they are Masters of their Domains, Orchestrating in Unbelievable Fashion the distractions and noise machines to Divide and Conquer the American Public. Like clockwork, after the questionable legality of the Wisconsin Statehouse Republicans finagling their legislation last night in a Scorched Earth manner, acting in the interests of the very few as opposed to what is fair and just.

Notice the majority of this "Spontaneous" Labor busting? They're in the North, because the Southern States already have Unions Stripped of their Rights.

The Next Day, as I write this, the Peter King ‘Islamic Radicalization’ meetings – which have no purpose, IMO, than to distract, divide and pit the 99.5% of us ‘Have Nots’ against each other. Meanwhile, the powers that be, Legally or Illegaly, pass questionable laws that strip all of us of our Rights and our ability to voice not only our Opinions, but our Dissent against this whole Very Successful, Very Cleaver, Incredibly Effective and now Not-S0-Hidden Agenda.

This ‘Al-Qaeda-izing’ ( the database ) of the entire Muslim Community completely distracts the MSM ( purposely ) from what is really happening here, and pitting the ill-informed public against each other is the tactic of choice again, Beautifully Maestro’ed by the Hidden Agendas.

Then across the hill you have Michelle and President Obama speaking to educators, parents, and community leaders as well as politicians who seem to care about Bullying and the Tactics of Bullying, and the examples and reasons behind bullying…

Does anyone else see the Irony and Lessons of this Point in time in the Structure of Thought™ has laid out before us on this day?

I want to just recognize that in my belief system, there are clues and underlying reasons things happen – sometimes it truly is a coincidence, but there are other times when the Synchronicity is almost Blatant – and this is one of those times. If Corporations are People and Money is Speech, well then We the People are being Bullied by Citizens United, American Crossroads, Fox News, et al.

Like I have said before, I really am no fan of either political party, and just because it is Legal doesn’t make it Correct to implement, profits before people, without Conscience.

At the Least, the Democratic Party, again at the Least, the majority of those who call themselves ‘Democrats’ believe in Ethical, Moral, and Reasoned Behavior – and handcuffed by their Corporate Purse Strings aside… they want the same opportunities for all Americans, not just the Rich White people.

And yes, Elections do have consequences – but the People of Wisconsin never heard Walker mention he was going to do what he has done… and it’s plain to see the Bait and Switch Tactics He and his Ilk have employed… The FACT that they have done this at all is a Bullying Tactic. It’s Lying Liars.

Let’s hope that these events, when looked at through the Prism of Positive Thought Structure™, will show those who have denied that things like this don’t just happen in a Vacuum. We have to Stand Up to this Bully – in the truest sense of Gandhi, with Non-Violent, Peaceful, Organized Non-Compliance. I give the People of Wisconsin and Muslim Americans Immense Credit for ‘Keeping a Lid on their Pots.’ It is my hope that the best of Humanity and cooler, less selfish heads will prevail, and that these Bullies will be brought to Justice. Comments or Dissent is welcome and encouraged.

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 »


Ray Noland: Blago / Banksy –

First, I made the following comment at Huffington post, you can see the article I commented on here –

Second, here is my embellished comment: I am / was a big fan of all the Blago/Banksy graffiti that were sprayed all around Chicago – and I covered it extensively in 3+ Posts on my blog “The Structure of Thought™ – this is the way it has always been®”. It’s my opinion that you cannot patent a “style” of art ( you can invent a style, however, so that something can be “Banksy-esque” so to speak, even tho he didn’t “invent” it ) just like a medical or big pharma company can’t “Patent” a gene or a chromosome – even tho the law says you can. Just because it is legal, doesn’t make it right.

That being said, the whole point of Art in its highest calling IMO is to generate positive Thought Structure™, discussion, and push society towards enlightenment. If you go back and read my posts on Ray’s Art it shows the noblest aspect to what the purpose of ANY art can do – call attention to issues, our culture, the flaws in our society, our misplaced values and dysfunctional aspects of the Pop Culture we have created. That is powerful, how one individual can help push society towards the positive.

If you think about it, one good idea can change everything. Hopefully for the better.

Check out the Blago/Banksy entries I talked about here & here – there’s at least 3 updates, with 2 being in the first link, showing pictures from Wicker Park, Bucktown, the Skylark fire pic with some shots of me warming myself next to the cold, empty fire that Blago is trying to start… pretty fun stuff. Check them out…

peace!


Okay, I am a giant football / soccer geek, not the most knowledgeable, but I try my hardest to hold conversations with those who know WAY more than me on any topic… and I know just enough about Futbol to be slightly dangerous. So before Friday’s matches are even played, I’ve got my final 16 bracket filled out, homer-ized, & Filled with upsets.

For reference, I have used my ESPN iPhone app to help me draw the brackets for the final 16. And I’m still not sure how these brackets shake out – but as you can tell by the whiteboard I enlisted at work, it was very confusing seeing how these play out.

I was under the impression that the groups cross-pollinate in the “elite 8” – meaning, winners getting into the final 8 “bracket jump” into the playing those from the “other side” of the draw – those from group A-B all of a sudden playing those from G-H or whatever. That being said, I guess this is how it is supposed to be – if not, I’ll amend next week. Plus I should also apologize for my “USA Centric” bracketing – having them in the top right corner. So you see what a homer I am.

So keeping this short, it’s my impression that the South American teams have caught up and zoomed past European players… France and today Italy’s shocking exit as example. If Italy would have played all three games like last 20 Minutes of the Slovakia, they probably would have won their group. But it doesn’t fall far from reality that we could see a final 4 of all-South American teams… Uruguay, Argentina, Chile/Paraguay, and of course Brasil. That is what my Head tells me – but as any good Homeresque philosopher type as I fancy myself, I filled out the bracket with my heart, not my head! (of course).

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!

First let me say I am so thankful that I remain busy and have tons to do… hence the sporadic nature of my Posts. I wish I were more consistent—I strive for at least one a week. But I gotta make hay while the sun shines.

That being said, one of the reasons I started this blog is to critique and ferret out video documentaries on the net for my friends and other intellectually curious that maybe “normal” people wouldn’t necessarily see. So I comb Video Google ( instead of YouTube, because they have full length videos ) and watch / listen to them while I work. Read the rest of this entry »


First, visualize the Thought Structure™ behind this: I am tying together 3 separate tangents that touch as bubbles in like some sort of 120° degree arrangement.

With that being said, as someone who 1) can watch anything about history and conspiracies for hours on end and who 2) wants to bring about the most positive change possible through my writings and work, I have to say I am at a loss to tell you about a video I ran across last week.

It’s called Earthlings, and I could only watch the first fifth of the movie, it disturbed me so much. Basically, the Movie points out the fact that all creatures on this planet, from the lowliest worms, bacteria and viruses to the great all powerful human beings, and all things in between, are Earthings, Earthings first. The film then goes into a shameful demonstration of “Man’s Inhumanity to Earthlings” and shows example after example of humans just being horrible in every way possible to our fellow travelers in this particular existence.

I still ate meat and even had Steak and Eggs for breakfast Sunday, but… I am seriously rethinking my diet after watching this movie. I recommend it highly—but I can’t watch it. Very disturbing. Needless to say I was pretty depressed and downtrodden after I saw this.

By Coincidence ( of Course! ) Oprah had a show on last Friday titled “Amazing Animals”, which I happened to catch because I was taking the day off. Some of the video examples on the show were so remarkable, so uplifting. I was going to post a sample video from the show, but I went to Oprah’s site to see if I could get something to show you, and… too complicated. So here is a lame-ass promo from the show, sorry about that…

Different animals taking care of each other, unbelievable friendships between man and beast—it again renewed my faith in us humans pulling our heads out of our butts, righting our ship as a species and joining the rest of the Real Civilized universe, that is watching, waiting for us to figure it out.

I have to think that overcoming this hurdle of understanding is a part of all of our development as members of our earthling community, and where we place ourselves in the Omniverse™ in general.  Hindsight is 20/20, but I have to think that the consensus is who had the more “advanced civilization” back when Europe was “Re”—discovering the New World is debatable.

And I have to remember to keep top of mind this fact, how long have we been truly self-aware, and what real knowledge has been suppressed from our larger history, that has shaped this reality we now inhabit. It’s only been the blink of an eye, in the grand scheme of things.

I often think that if there is some sort of “un-earthling” type presence observing us from hidden bases either on other the other planets in our solar system, on our own satellite the moon, or even among us here on earth, I’d like to think that a group of these benevolent beings are observing and noting, with all our faults, that we are all for the most part good “creations”. I’d like to think that we are moving towards Positive Thought Structure™.

AND – not to be too long, but in Obama’s commencement speech at Notre Dame, he touches upon this tangent in the last third of his speech, which I will reference here…

As much as I am suspicious of how political an animal Obama is, It is my hope that his convictions match this speech. It reinforces what I was discussing in the previous paragraphs. If this is the direction we are now going, I am glad for this change of direction of temperment. Because it is a direction, towards the ultimate good as opposed towards ultimate evil. Hopefully it will spread into not only how we treat each other as Human Beings, but also how we treat our fellow Earthings as well.


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.
