Bend over; smile…

imagesIt does seem to look as if the massively wealthy are finely having there way with us without to much concern for repercussions in response to them bending us over time and time again using mass media, pharmaceuticals, beer, and years of conditioning our minds to believe we are living in a democracy; (this, to meet their parasitic goals) it now seems they can pretty much do as they please at this point without any concern whatsoever. They just bumped up the gas prices here in california a dollar a gallon; not a peep about it at the pumps, or on the news for the most part, its as if this bump in the gas prices won’t affect everything else around it; food prices will soon have to follow, as well as many other necessities of life …Then we have “Habeas Corpus” (our very lifeline to free speech without concern for being swept up in the middle of the night and carried off somewhere without due process) this is now a faint memory of a time past that held within its grasp, at least–the sense of freedom. Our prisons are still holding more people in them than any other country on the entire planet thanks to Counterpro; much of which is represented by skin of a darker complexion than computer paper, or a specific flavor ice cream. Our middle class is GONE, people working two and three jobs to feed their kids, and sometimes with no health benefits because corporate america has figured out part time workers mean hefty quarterly reports, all this, and the money that was siphoned in 2006 to 2008 were diverted into the bank accounts of the very people who raped us in the first place; not one of these greedy foul Apes were even brought into a courtroom let alone charged and sent to day camp; they didn’t even have the respect to provide us with a well scripted show to ease the pain of this assault on american life. They are making more money now than ever before…And now it’s pretty much illegal to be an activists by way of crafty new statutes implemented into both local and federal law since the march on wall street….SMH; what happen to us? We use to be “badass”… Now we just roll over and ask not to be disturbed during TMZ as they have there way with us…

Here’s a few words from a real bad ass that knew what time it was..,!

“If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without demand. It never did and it never will… Men may not get all they pay for in this world, but they must certainly pay for all they get.”
Frederick Douglass, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass

Media, Mass Hypnosis…

11800487_10205147744393182_5804048377996374887_nMy concern is, and has been for a long time now, mass hypnosis of entire populations (us); this takes place in great part through mainstream media, sparking the imagination and seducing the senses into submission by way of very greedy power hungry people using all the intellectual tools at hand (not there own intellect, because most these Apes operate from a primal instinct; greed! but craftiness always leads them to the keepers of healthy intellect) to manipulate the minds and actions of the populus for them. Truth (manufactured truth) is then man made. It’s polished, distributed in a calculated manner, and managed by monkeys employed by Apes to maintain a fabricated normal; this “truth” usually molded in hands that are less than benevolent or caring in any way shape or form; we fall prey to this manufactured BS every time. Same way Einstein split the atom to cause a desired effect, our Apeish owners split us in order to obtain a desired effect. Division; conquer. It works every time. Walter Lippmann stated this back in the 60’s…

“We are told about the world before we see it. We imagine most things before we experience them. And those preconceptions, unless education has made us acutely aware, govern deeply the whole process of perception.”
― Walter Lippmann, Public Opinion

I think he was trying to tell us to wake up from our deep sleep…Funny, we out number these parasites millions to one, and yet we still find ourselves at their mercy…And they possess NONE!

Forgiveness…

imgresC.G. Jung brings an interesting question to the surface about forgiveness. My take: The fact we tend to overlook aspects of this blessed gift (forgiveness) by way of looking outward toward others where judgment takes place first-“then maybe”- forgiveness; this should indicate we have a few things worth looking into. This all conveniently takes place by leaning outside the subjective experiences for the most part. This seems to me to be the easier softer way for us humans to deal with our own inner turmoil and demons. Look outward; point, and respond to others and their behaviour. This gives us the illusion it’s not us, but them. The very twist in this subjective-objective trickery turns on us and bits us in the ass because we never allow the truth about ourselves to enter into the equation; let alone forgive ourselves, or anyone else for that matter. If we can’t forgive ourselves, how can we forgive anyone else? The quote comes from Jung (Memories, Dreams, Reflections) and is worth making sure what you’re reading “is” what Jung has written…We can sometimes read words and not see the author’s intent; our imagination can play tricks on us, and that sometimes is the problem with excerpts, and especially with this particular subject matter…

“The acceptance of oneself is the essence of the whole moral problem and the epitome of a whole outlook on life. That I feed the hungry, that I forgive an insult, that I love my enemy in the name of Christ — all these are undoubtedly great virtues. What I do unto the least of my brethren, that I do unto Christ. But what if I should discover that the least among them all, the poorest of all the beggars, the most impudent of all the offenders, the very enemy himself — that these are within me, and that I myself stand in need of the alms of my own kindness — that I myself am the enemy who must be loved — what then? As a rule, the Christian’s attitude is then reversed; there is no longer any question of love or long-suffering; we say to the brother within us “Raca,” and condemn and rage against ourselves. We hide it from the world; we refuse to admit ever having met this least among the lowly in ourselves.”
― C.G. Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections

James 1:22-26
“But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was. But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does. If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is worthless.”

Charleston Church Shootings…

I know we live a blessed time in history, (compared to the rest of human history) and a blessed country (in terms of having it very good in comparison to most everywhere else), but this country’s best potential is having the capability to see our ill’s, and make the changes necessary to rectify those ill’s..But to do that we have take a painful look around us…

Having just found about the shooting late last night, as I don’t watch a lot of the, so called “news” knowing better entertainment is always just a click away…Oh, did I refer to “the news” as entertainment…My bad; I meant corporate controlled bastardized “entertainment”… Now they have a story they can attach themselves too, and siphon the very life blood out this tragedy till the corps drys up and turns to dust, then take the dust and sprinkle it all over the next story (I’m sorry I sound harsh toward the news, as I have had first hand experience with them when my sister died, but also I feel they are a huge part of this problem!)…

10351528_10204928390629475_234250826377310526_nI can’t believe at the age of 60, after living in Atlanta Ga in 1968 when blacks had to sit in the back of busses, and drink from segregated water fountains that this hateful shit is still going on…! We as a country refuse to look at our history in any serious light or factual clarity, even though the details are still available to us, (and we better read it now before that changes) we don’t bother to look…Yet we continue to educate our kids with bullshit smoke and mirrors, and fairytales about hero’s…And then we allow ourselves to be inundated with propaganda through mass media…And we wonder how things like this shooting take place.

A punk ass loser kid walks into a church sits down and opens fire on good people for no reason at all except pure unadulterated hate and bigotry that has been placed into the very depts of his being by whatever tribe of Apes that raised this animal…This kid is just one of millions that carry this despicable illness within them, if it’s not Blacks, it’s Muslims, if not Muslims, then Gays, or Poor People, or maybe even you and me…This crap is born of ignorance, and nurtured by frickin idiots, and if you drill a bit deeper you will find a machine in place to keep the momentum going in order for the owners of said machine to continue to do what that have been doing best for 600 years now…

We are better then this dammit, or maybe I’m just bullshitting myself to flee from the sad reality of all this; my heart and prayers goes out to all the victims of this insane act, and their families…May these victims rest in peace.

“Maybe it’s time to just scrap the word “racist.” Find something new. Like Racial Disorder Syndrome. And we could have different categories for sufferers of this syndrome: mild, medium, and acute.”

Ornette Coleman…

I just found out today Ornette Coleman died three days ago, my condolences go out to his family and anyone here on my FB that my have been close to him: Ira Sullivan, Liebs, Frank Tusa, Richie, Richard, Tony, Fred, Chris… I’m not sure who of you may have either worked or hung with him in the early years, so if any of you did, I am sorry for your loss, and for the loss to the rest of the planet. This man was one of the very few of his kind, and history will remember him in that way without a doubt…John Coltrane, Albert Ayler, Sam Rivers, Ornette, these men took Jazz to places Jazz didn’t even see coming..

The piece Id like to post is close to my heart. It deals with his writing; his Idea. We all know him as the revolutionary giant of a saxophone player that he was, but I hear his pencil set to paper giving birth to ides that were both beautiful, abstract, and always passionate…”Dedication To Poets & Writers” was just that, a dedication to poets & writers…God has one amazing saxophone section in His band now…Peace.

Art: Yes to the gold and the mud

11206048_10204911415565109_790475502880550621_nI have been in the arts most all my life…I don’t know of one artists worth their salt that hasn’t had to view this world with painful honesty as to both what they saw outside themselves, and from within…Naturally all great Musicians, Writers, and Poets take this infliction and make their choice as to what to do with these painful, and or joyful perspectives: weather to then turn around and paint a picture that resonates the beauty that has been magnified by this very pain, (and or joyful view), or paint a picture of the pain itself in it’s harsh actuality . The outcome of these decisions could be what makes a – Kahlil Gibran, or a Franz Kafka, – a Lord Byron, or a Charles Bukowski – a Penderecki, or a Dubusy – a John Coltrane or a Hubert Laws – even a Jimmy Hendrix, or a John Denver…The ONE THING for me is; that the artist always be honest; whether he or she offends or uplifts, brings joy or sadness, anger or tranquility, this or that, to his or her audience…That, and to be authentic in nature…Hermann Hesse says it quite well…Hesse cuts right to the bone here, and the artist is the recipient of the slice in my view, he is directing this to himself as well…People who love Art can choose what that care to embrace, the Artists has to walk into the storm if he or she are to be effective and true to their own nature as Artists…

Hermann Hesse

“There is no escape. You can’t be a vagabond and an artist and still be a solid citizen, a wholesome, upstanding man. You want to get drunk, so you have to accept the hangover. You say yes to the sunlight and pure fantasies, so you have to say yes to the filth and the nausea. Everything is within you, gold and mud, happiness and pain, the laughter of childhood and the apprehension of death. Say yes to everything, shirk nothing. Don’t try to lie to yourself. You are not a solid citizen. You are not a Greek. You are not harmonious, or the master of yourself. You are a bird in the storm. Let it storm! Let it drive you! How much have you lied! A thousand times, even in your poems and books, you have played the harmonious man, the wise man, the happy, the enlightened man. In the same way, men attacking in war have played heroes, while their bowels twitched. My God, what a poor ape, what a fencer in the mirror man is- particularly the artist- particularly myself!”

Industry processing everything…!

images

The reason I post so much of Wendell Berry’s (AKA, The Angry Farmer) work, is his poetry, novels, and philosophical works are all about activism, ecology, industrialization, and humanity in general, (not intellectual masturbation). The fact that industrialization has made it so humanity can really no longer get along within this paradigm of polarization, war driven economy, and consumerism, that it has embraced this potentially fatal new world order that has been prepared for us, (out of a subconscious desperation) and is about to have the very lifeblood that keeps us breathing cut off somewhere along the line, perhaps very soon. I believe this to be taking place as we speak.

I would think, all this would give way to a more serious examination by the masses, as to just how this is all taking place, and why, and for that we have to turn to people who are qualified to speak on these matters with some level of expertise, and humanitarian intentions, which in this day and age is very hard to find. So writers like Berry, Zinn, Hedges, Chomsky as hard on the eyes and ears as they can be need a hearing, if we are to get any prospective on other than the prospective of “Pac Man” and his insatiable appetite …

We have been dumbed down and uneducated by propaganda doled out by the Industrial Royals to the point we no longer see the forest through the trees. It seems as long as enough of us are feed well, fat, and living a good life, the hell with the rest, (its a numbers game) the problem with that is “we” also will be a part of “the rest” here very soon if “we” don’t look closely to the last 60 years or so, and see the patterns being implemented right under our noses by “The Royals”…

Berry breaks this down piece by piece in all his work, he shows how allowing this to continue “will” sever the very thread that ties us to something that makes humanity so very special, Love, Community, Benevolence, &c. and is now degrading bit by bit, and encouraging humanity to devolve into something far worse than any of the other creatures occupying this planet, BY FAR, in terms of destroying the very mother that gave birth to us (Earth), not to mention pissing all over the gift God provided.

Yet because Berry isn’t a shiny, hip, pop BS artist, nor is he concerned with any of that whatsoever, his huge, eloquent body of work goes somewhat unread by mainstream students today, even though Yale, Harvard, and every other major university nearly begs for his presents at their conferences…Just another example of a culture trained by its masters to always look to the shiny object dangling from the string held by the hypnotists, hired by the deformed leeches feeding on the populous…SMH..!

“The passive American consumer, sitting down to a meal of pre-prepared food, confronts inert, anonymous substances that have been processed, dyed, breaded, sauced, gravied, ground, pulped, strained, blended, prettified, and sanitized beyond resemblance to any part of any creature that ever lived. The products of nature and agriculture have been made, to all appearances, the products of industry. Both eater and eaten are thus in exile from biological reality.”
Wendell Berry
