So, Lady, should I ask you now this question; “What is Love?” Could you give to me an answer? Is is just a silly word? A word that has no meaning? Is it just the impression of our bodies on a mattress, soon changed like the sheets on the bed? Or some drunken one-night stand? What is Love? Could it be what makes this world roll around the Sun? Could it be what makes the Forest & Flowers to grow, or that look in Your Eyes, when you look at me? Could it be what brought You to Me, to live and share our lives together, forevermore? So, Lady, if I ask you now, this question; “What is Love?” Would You give to me an answer?
Well, fellow humans, we had a million + children out in the streets, calling out to our so-called Leaders; The World is Burning, do something! Ho Hum, business as usual, get your young asses back in brainwashing school, brats…..So we, as usual, refused to listen to our “Beloved Children”…..Merrily, Merrily, we roll along, ripping up our one and only home for Profit, the future be damned…..The Earth looks now like a Giant Trash Can, so what? The bucks keep rolling into our coffers…………………….~~~~~Well, says Mother Earth, if the humans will not live up to their responsibilities, I will have to teach them a lesson…..So out of nothing she fabricates a tiny little virus, invisible to the naked eye, and says: “Sic em, boy!” And thus she accomplishes what years of futile protests failed to accomplish, and the World eating machine begins to falter, and then to shut down…..The Airplanes are parked in row upon row, the Cruise Ships are tied up at the piers, the cars stay in the garage, and The Air is once again almost Breathable! That over-inflated Stock Market watch’s their trillions of imaginary dollars evaporate into thin air…..Humans are confined to quarters, forced, maybe, to begin to talk to one another……………………………………………………………………………Or Not, perhaps they have lost the fine old art of discourse, lost forever in endless trivia on those “Magic” little screens; “Whas, up,Bro?” “Hey man, same ole, same ole.” To quote Kurt Vonnegut; “And so it goes.” And our brave Leaders say; “Those Consumers are not Consuming, something must be done, we cannot have the rich becoming less rich.” “Oh! we will just bail them out, after all we will all be dead before the bill for this comes due.” For example, remember G.W. Bush after 9/11? “Just get out there and shop folks.” While he proceeded to launch us into a ‘Forever War’……Trillions of our national treasure spent, millions of lives lost, but the Military/Industrial complex was in seventh heaven………………………………………………..~~~~~People huddling in their homes, scared to death by the powers that be, and a little tiny virus, that so far has not even come close to causing as many deaths as Malaria & the Flu…..This makes me laugh & laugh; “Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people.” H. L. Mencken………………………………………………………………………………..~~~~~Perhaps, just perhaps this is the time to rethink our priorities in life, like pay off that debt load, stop being a “Good Consumer” Start thinking for yourselves, and begin to realize how good ‘The Simple Life’ can be…..Think about it!
The ICC (International Criminal Court) has charged the Afghanistan Government, the Taliban, and the good old USA, with crimes against Humanity…..All good and true charges……Yet I have yet to see that same Court charge the monster Criminal, Mr. Bashar Al- Assad of Syria, and his buddy Mr. Putin of Russia with any War Crimes. Ask yourselves why is Russia helping Syria in their “Civil War?” Why the answer is easy; what better way to test out your latest weapons on Living People, than on some boring test range…..Well, they have succeeded in bombing into Rubble every city and farm; and killing at least 1 million citizens, not to mention the many thousands thrown into Assad’s prisons, there to undergo unbelieveable tortures…..No more mister nice guy there; and yet they now expect the international community to Ante -Up and help this monster to rebuild his self-destroyed country…..The ruler of Rubble, that is what Mr. Assad & Mr. Putin are now, 5 million refugees the price we have to pay. So My question is this: “When will the ICC press charges of genocide against Mr. Assad & Mr. Putin? Another “Paper Tiger” is what I see here, Ms. Justice, lost at Sea, maybe the high tides got her? It always amazes me by what people will tolerate, as long as it is done to “Other’s” Our Planet is a little round ball, which we all exist upon, it is not like we have someplace else to go to. The Universe is waiting for us to wake the F–k Up, and learn to live in Peace and Harmony…..We need a million + Greta Thunberg’s, Done Here…..
I just spent 2 hours writing a nice story for you on here and then it just Disappeared! Near the last sentence, evaporated, gone, man, if I had just been typing it on Paper, this would never have happened, tell me how great this New, Shinny, Information Age is……………. ~~~~~It is a bunch of Crap; over complicated by code writers & Corporations…… ~~~~~A few years ago, if I needed a new Phone # I would just call AT&T and they would come and install one, but alas, alack, I went deaf (Almost 5 % left ear only) and now I have to conduct my business over this Modern, New, Infallible network, and I had to spend over 4 hours with three different representatives Just to get my already installed phone turned back on, after some A–hole cancelled my service on me…..Oh! we need an I.D. Card sir, oh! we need your life history sir, could you give that number one more time; and so on……I had only been sending them a check in the mail for 30+years, always on time, always the correct amount……But it was in my Lady’s name, and all I wanted to accomplish is have my name replace hers, since she died and I was still among the living! ~~~~~I try to sign on to sites on this here Internet, and once again I need to concoct a new Pass-Word, a new proof of identity, I am sick of this stupidity, this lack of trust among Human Beings, My IP address should be sufficient, but since they invented fake VPN’s that too is worthless…… ~~~~~It does not help that I am a “Computer Dunce”. I am too old to learn all this new stuff, so I just muddle my way through, although many hours were wasted when I should have been practicing how to play on my 8&12 tongued wooden drums, which are rare instruments to own, much less be able to play on……So let us see if I can “Disappear” this latest missive……Love to All Writers & Readers….
F–king is such Fun!; But all too quickly it is over and it is back to everyday, ordinary reality, gotta get to work, gotta earn that bread for the next meal, because that belly is getting empty. Plus we have to satisfy our Ego’s, need that new house, that new car, that 60 inch T.V., so off to the mind-destroying job we go…..Hut, Hut, Hut, off to work we go, every day the same old s–t……It’s OK, we now have those little magical screens, our super muscular thumbs, we can Tweet! we can play Games!, we can snap 10,000 pictures, send endless texts………………………………………………………………………………………….~~~~~What we cannot do is interact with the Reality of this world…..You know, the Reality of Over-Population, the Reality of endless little wars, the Reality of World Destroying Nuclear Bombs, all set, ready to go at the push of a button…..Or how about burning and chopping down the last of this planet’s great Rain Forests to plant Soybeans? Mostly for animal feed…..Or how about the disappearance of the animals and the fish and the birds?……………………~~~~~Note how hard the Rich and the Government fight against women having access to Birth Control…..We must have a steady supply of Cheap, slave wage labor so Profit increases, we must be able to fill in the ranks of the military with ever more Cannon Fodder……I know this sounds like the same old s–t over and over again, well, as far as I can see, nothing has changed since I started writing, and until things change, I must continue trying to bring people’s attention to bear on the subject matter at hand, as I, personally, would like to see to it that our precious children have a future to look forward to, instead of a laid to waste trash dump……Have a nice day!
Well, now with our Voluntary Military, the forces have to use bribes to get those poor, unemployed people to sign up. $15,000. sign-up bonus, free college, etc……Of course the Rich men’s sons do not sign on the dotted line, they go instead to Harvard or Yale, so they too can be even richer, no war for them! ~~~~~Now we train them up; “What is the purpose of the Bayonet? To KILL” Learn to aim that rifle boy, learn to fire that machine gun, learn how to load those shells into the breach of the cannon, and so on. ~~~~~All trained up, and off we go, to War, Glorious War! Gotta play Whack A Mole with those Taliban! A while back it was gotta Kill those Cong! (How did that work out?) And Iraq, what a Victory! Are we good or what? ~~~~~And now those boys are coming Home. Some in Silver Boxes, draped with a Flag, some with a burned off face, some missing one arm, one leg, two arms, two legs, triple and quadruple limbs missing. ( I have a buddy in Staten Island, N.Y. who lost all four limbs). Some come home and sit alone at night wondering how all his buds were killed, and why did he survive the battlefield bullet, so he sticks the gun in his mouth and eats that bullet that missed him on the battlefield, or he winds up on the streets, homeless, because he cannot adapt to civilian life, you know, work a dead end job all day, same old, same old,” Wish I could get back to war, I had buds there who had my back, now I got no-one…..” ~~~~~The DAV, the American Legion, and all those other orgs. do a wonderful job trying to help those wounded warriors, but would it not be nice if we could finally learn to live at peace with one another, treat all men, women and children as Equals, and eliminate the need for them? The fact that I have to spend my time writing about this war shit, just makes me sick to my heart, I would much rather write about Beauty and Paradise, but that time is not here yet. I write to remind people to wake up and look around themselves at this “For Profit” world we have allowed to rule us for so long that we take it as a fact of life. It does not have to be this way! Good people must no longer be silent, we must, all of us “Soto Voce” stand up, and speak out and say; NO MORE…..By our Silence, a World is Lost…….
The good old USA has at least 146 Weapons Factories (Wikipedia) to keep employed, how are we going to do that without another “Tidy” little war? ~~~~~Where are we dropping those bombs today? Afghanistan? Iraq? Syria? Yemen? Sorry no report made available to the Public! ~~~~~How many 100 million dollar drones are on order today?, Lost one to Iran the other day, replacement on order, the Pentagon has $750 Billion dollars to play with, all those wonderful computerized warplanes, ships, missiles, (subject to Hacking), another $12 billion dollar faulty aircraft carrier on order. ~~~~~In this modern world aircraft carriers are BFT’s (Big Fat Targets) hauling 6,000 sailors to a watery grave….. ~~~~~”The Department of Defense” is a Big Fat Lie, it is the Department of Permanent WAR…..If those soldiers are not firing off those rifles & machine guns, how are the Ammo Factories going to stay in business? ~~~~~The funnest thing is, in today’s world, by the time they finish designing a new warplane, like that $350 million dollar F-35, it is already obsolete! Someone in missile design has a plan for that! ~~~~~Take Mr. Assad of Syria & s good buddy Putin, bombing his country to rubble to stay in charge of RUBBLE. Now he is seeking outside help to aid in rebuilding all that he has destroyed. Why is this guy not standing in the world court of Justice, charged with crimes against humanity? Oh! I forgot World Leaders are Sacrosanct, Inviolable! Like the Donald taking out Iran’s General, big boo boo He was Sacrosanct! ~~~~~According to Wikipedia in 6/2018 there were 72 armed conflicts ongoing in our world. When are human beings going to get sick to death of this Shit? ~~~~~We are spending our National Treasure on Bombs and other weapons of war while we have 40 million Americans living in Poverty, millions of people homeless, 2+ million in prisons, something is seriously wrong here people! ~~~~~What a wonderful world we could make for our precious children to inherit if we would just learn to live with each other in PEACE!
