War and Vegetables: A Chronicle of the Last Gas Station is Available

corporatism-rigged-economy-war-vegetables-Preface: The devastation left in the wake of corporatism in much of the world was a war zone Even in the US it seemed like a war zone. The rights of individuals, their properties, communities, and small businesses were under attack, not mere metaphor in some cases. Solutions, some so simple, were suppressed in favor of archaic, toxic, and inefficient technologies Politicians enabled these policies and the results, and they worked a TV like a dancer’s prop, feigning opposition There were so many of us, and so few of them. Somehow they made us feel powerless. Perhaps it was the weaponry the constant trauma of fear porn, and the fake food, all helped along by the too slowly dissipating apparitions of TV projection. Regardless, it was a con. The Millenials were next, with the Public Record in the palms of their hands. www.war&veggies.com

David Frum is Slow: Why Romney Lost

It’s ridiculous that anyone ever thought Romney was going to win that election. Who do these people listen to? I am not a Democrat or a Republican, and maybe that is why it is obvious to me that the Republican ship has sailed. It’s over, visit the Republican Party at the Hospice Center. David Frum is trying to help everyone figure out why Romney lost with an eBook, and he is trying to save the Republican Party. There are people who want to perform CPR on this thing, but it’s really not part of the plan. It’s not necessary any more. The political class no longer needs the distraction of a two-party system. They have implemented all sorts of new controls, and the right wing, and the drug warriors are getting everything they need from Obama. He has deported more immigrants than any other President -ever-, twice what Bush did. He has also done more raids on legal marijuana, completely disrespecting local law. Just click that link back there and read for yourself.

So here’s the deal David Frum. When those sexless ghouls in your Republican party talked about rape as being of the Lord, and that there is some kind of magic birth control in cases of violence against Women, and when they talked about allowing employers to demand invasive procedures on their female employees, there were people in the Democratic Party who were stupid enough to actually think that the laws those anomalous time warp freaks wanted to pass had a chance to see the light of day. When you couple that with the people in your Party who actually think so, and the females in your Party who are frightened to death of their men, -THEN- add to that the fact that the Leadership of the Democratic Party have absolutely -zero- conscience in regard to exploiting fear… well… that is just one issue where the mind of the There are two classes in the United States, the political class and the rest of usaverage American is under utter control. And it works the same way on a whole range of issues.

Remember the 80’s, when the Evangelical Christians thought Reagan was a man of God who infiltrated the White House to do the Lords work and then corporatized the food industry, killing the small farms and the businesses that go with it? Then how he turned the other way when a bunch of Salvadorean military men, aligned with the US in Central America raped and murdered those American Catholic Nuns in El Salvador? Well, there is a whole new crop of New Agey types who think Obama is some kind of “lightworker” or unifier, even as he has ordered 308 drone strikes, 5 times more than Bush and continues to strain relationships with Countries who have nuclear weapons, in that and other ways.

Your Party is not necessary any more David.

But tell me the truth Dave? you already know all this right? I am just a schmuck-ass working guy from a blue collar background and I can see this. I have been saying for two years that two terms is a lock for Obama. I know you have to know -at least- what I know.

So yes, here is -my- ebook, my lousy 0.99 ebook that has all sorts of stuff that you David Frum seem to have overlooked. And I’m sorry to tell you that it does not have any recipes; it does not have any recipes for reviving the Republican Party, for making sure you pundits get to be on TV fighting over things the govt. should not have any business being involved in at all, in the first place.  Because as for me, I am glad that the grave for the Republican Party has been dug, because now we are just in time to dig the next one for the Democratic Party. It’s one down, one to go Dave. Get hip, click the picture for my rag.

I wrote this SIX years ago Dave. Damn you’re slow.

Plato’s Republic: Treatise of paid-off phony intellectual bottom feeders

Plato is wrong about probably everything

What a bad meme to spread! Plato had a lot of things wrong. Who would cast a spell like this? What’s his interest in maintaining the ostracism of honest people?

How about this instead?:

“Those who are able to see beyond the shadows and lies of their culture are honest, valuable people who lay the foundation for the New Civilization”

That makes more sense to me. Spread -that- meme around so it takes hold, what the hell were people thinking back then? how could they do this to us? 

That is a better meme to lay down for Western Civilization, instead of the “forms” and the “ideals” that Plato used to provide talentless bureaucracies the tools they use to control us to this day. Plato was the first paid-off phony intellectual.

In many cultures, before the West did this thing it is doing, people who see things more clearly are not cast-aways who are considered weirdos, they are special people who are heard in order to see things from different perspectives. They are Shaman, healers, and clarions. Sometimes they are even chosen to become Chiefs and leaders. At the very least, their input is integrated into the whole, and considered valuable.

Plato’s Republic is the foundation in the West for Bureaucratic Authoritarianism. It is the start of ostracizing realism and the root of discontent and alienation. The Republic separates people from themselves and their communities, and implores a dependence on external constructs that are usually foisted via violence by people who do not provide any work or innovation to the equation. 

Another option for this photo might be:The REpublic, By Plato

“Those who are able to see beyond the shadows and lies of their culture will never be understood, let alone believed, by the masses. And don’t worry talentless bureaucrats who make your living fleecing hard-working, valuable people. I’m writing a book called “The Republic” and it will ensure easy living for your ilk for at least a couple of millenia.”

Plato knew who doled out the free tax dollars. So like the economists and pundits of today, writing treatises that justify that system is good job security. Never mind innovation or solutions, unless of course they are exploited to continue to support the talentless political class and their flack machine.  And writing them in a language that is understandable by the people who have a certain level of education, but who are not inclined to critical thinking or original thought is a special talent. That malleable majority of the population is crucial to the maintenance of easy living for the political class and its tentacles.

At some point you have to ask yourself for honesty with yourself. Just ask yourself three questions before you lie down to sleep. Don’t be scared. Just ask: “Can I be honest with myself? Then ask: Am I doing anything to change things, really?, or am I just maintaining a broken cart that is ultimately doing more damage and harm than good?” Then: “At this point wouldn’t it be a net gain if we just started over?”
