these assholes can't get away with the 911 holocaust. they just can't!

come on all you guys who know something and all you leaders who want to clean that slate...let's roll!

American war criminals are not allowed any slack for whatever the hell they thought they were doing on that fateful day.

I Know you guys were puppets of a bigger machine and I'm absolutely sure They will give you guys up to save Their asses. Maybe someday we'll get them too but...FOR NOW...I'll personally settle with your beastly sins being cleansed in sweet retribution.

dammit if America is going to stand up again it has to shine Miss Liberty's light on this very dark place in its own history. turn the villains out in the square and let the stoning begin. bring out the horses and tie their arms and legs...draw and quarter each in turn...let their blood spray the population so we will never forget their cold-hearted crimes against their own. in the end hang each of their cursed heads from the Washington bridge and let them swing and rot till they crumble into the Hudson. let their stench remind us of the stench they left behind on America.

in the name of the needless deaths of the 3000 here and hundreds of thousands overseas including 5000 young Americans whose lives were taken away from them at the point of a pen, the world must see, we must reveal the horror. if we do not the many will continue to clinch their guts in shame for the shameless meaningless acts of a few.

World Trade Center 7 - The Smoking Gun of 9/11

Meanwhile, back at the ranch:

40 U.S. intelligence and counter-terrorism agents challenge official account of 9/11


William Christison, a 29-year CIA veteran, former National Intelligence Officer (NIO) and former Director of the CIA's Office of Regional and Political Analysis describes the 9/11 Commission Report as a “joke” and offers even more outspoken criticism. In a 2006 podcast interview by George Kenney of Electric Politics, Christison said, “We very seriously need an entirely new very high level and truly independent investigation of the events of 9/11. I think you almost have to look at the 9/11 Commission Report as a joke and not a serious piece of analysis at all.”

Terrell E. Arnold, MA – Former Deputy Director of Counter-Terrorism and Emergency Planning, U.S. State Department. Mr. Arnold is a leading expert on terrorism and counter-terrorism and the author of several books on the subjects. In an extensive article in July 2007, Mr. Arnold wrote, “Washington leadership keeps the American people fixated on the events of 9/11. They have brought us no closer than we were on September 12, 2001, to resolving how it was executed and by what enemy. They tell us repeatedly that it was the work of al Qaida, but they have yet to show us the proofs. They told us the official version of what happened that day, but their story is laced with contradictions, and the facts visible on the ground at the time belie much of the official account. ... As an alleged post 9/11 defense, the War on Terrorism is a gigantic fraud."

I mean-WoW.

What more does it take for some of this stuff to make it to Television?

You watch TV--have you ever seen programs on this stuff?

Have you ever looked around the web at the 9/11 stuff? Youtube's fucking scary.

And what's most scary is that our omnipresent Orwellian Propoganda Device, multiple devices found in each and every American home, the TV set, does not carry programming on this.

I am thinking about starting an Anti-TV website.

I remember Steve running around the halls of CBS News saying TV was a shit machine. No wonder he didn't last there.


That's Bob Cesca's headline for this one. Cesca is goddamn awesome, I don't know what I'd do without his blog.

Anyway, he writes:

The Senate Republican with the most influence over the future of healthcare in America wrote this on his Twitter today:

PTL BluDogs Keep barkin Pelosie bill is Govt takeovr of healthCare Breaks Obama promise"keep what u hv" Puts Wash Burocrats in chrg MUSTSTOP.


*banging head on desk*

Jesus H. Motherhumping Chuck Grassley.

On top of being completely incoherent and not unlike the scribblings of a 12-year-old girl in the margins of her math notebook, the ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee wrote PELOSIE?????!!!! He misspelled the last name of the Speaker of the House????!!!!!

listening to O

I'm struck as I always am at how thoughtful, measured, plain-spoken and focused this guy is. And I'm again amazed at the fact that I *admire* a President.

I liked Clinton in some ways; and in some ways he blew my mind because of all the terrible concentration of wealth/power that happened during his tenure. I couldn't believe that such a seemingly well-meaning President would let such things happen without a peep, or that he wouldn't say "This is Bullshit" in response to the Monica shit.

apartment life

I'm Loving living in these apartments. respect for borders has a lot to do with it. I used to feel antisocial cause I didnt interact with my neighbors in my old neighborhood. there was pressure to interact. not here, man. and the place is so well made it's as quiet or as social as opening the patio door.

there was this guy downstairs with huge dogs that should Never have been here. he kept them on the patio and they barked at worms and leaves. not cool. the good news is his girlfriend kicked him out and the dogs are gone and now it's back to being as peaceful as I want it to be.

my girlfriend bought a house and I may move in in a few years. but for now...this is Great. it aint LA but it's just what I need. mostly I love being anonymous and if I go outta town for a week or a month (which I'm about to do) I lock up and lawn, no car, no mail or papers, no worries of any sort...nobody knows if I'm there or not. beautiful.

what the Eff am i talking about at this godforsaken hour?

Every night here in Hollywood has a soundtrack and it varies from night to night, with layers of white sound from the whooshing streets and car alarms, to wafts of booming bass from any of the many automobiles crawling at any given time down side streets; the perfunctory comings and goings of neighbors, music blasting from a nearby apartment; and voices, punctuating the night in symphonies of mood, and nights like this, this is what I love best about living here: that the soundtrack is laughter and silliness and music. There are some new neighbors who moved in across the way, and they hit it off with the girls already there, and now they're having parties all the time. People hanging around outside, smoking, talking, just enjoying the night. Not sounding strained or unfun at all, ripples of laughter and shouts and teasing.....

I like living here, not because of anything but the people. Living in this exact spot feels way different than living in any of my other neighborhoods: Silverlake, Malibu, Venice, Santa Monica--I tried 'em all, but Hollywood has grabbed me in some way. The Hollywood flats, as a matter of fact---what I once thought of as urban wasteland, too rough-and-tumble to make a good place to live---has turned out to be the most vibrant and laid-back, interesting place. Now the voices are laughing, woman's voices, one of them hysterically telling a bizarre story about something that happened and the others howling with glee---that's the sound of a good neighborhood. Which this is. It is a noisy neighborhood, if things like this bother you. I always thought it would---but it doesn't. I feel safely private, people respect boundaries; but surrounded by life and sound and whatever that thing is that becomes the rhythm of a place.


charlie rose is talking with ambassador hill (our man in iraq) who's saying the problem with the middle east is the countries think they can control their neighbors...that the different sects dont understand they have to keep their fingers out of other sovereign nations.

fucking jesus, jack! how dare any american dignitary talk about keeping fingers out of their neighbor's pie. who freakin creAted the map of the middle east??? and not that long ago.

the west carved up persia and arabia and changed the borders based on mostly British and French influences. now we've gone in in our goddish way and anyone who thinks we're going to abandon our bases in the burbs anytime soon is living in a universe we havent seen lately.

check out the map above. A. Persia doesnt exist any more and B. that Red Zone (remind anyone of our Green 'Zone'?) was deClared under the diRect conTrol of the British. how fucking arrogant is THat?

that whole colonial thing was such outlaw scumbag scam! and WE still do it. that's as BUTTIFUL as it gets, doris. Sykes-Picot Agreement...which one of those guys was Arab?

answer: none of the above.

they got the wrong guy!!!

I was looking up michael jackson images to accompany a note about how weird America is with its celebrity orgasms and this came up. it's labeled 'Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder at the Grammys.

really. I guess celebrities are interchangeable. does it matter anyway? some famous entertainer dies and we go down on our knees in a way we never would have in real life...yet we do it too much already.

I might feel differently if we actually cared about what they did. if we actually gave half a shit about their art and magic of their craft. if we as a culture truly cared about what art does to and for us. that is, if we revered the power of art and entertainment in our lives on a daily basis and were in awe of that mystical exchange to the point of wanting to understand it, wanting the essence of that exchange to mean something beyond the superficial way we download and debate who's cool and what IT is.

if we understood a bit of that we might truly understand the significance of it when a major conduit of what that is goes away. that would mean a whole lot more than, " we miss you, michael. we know you're looking down at us from the golden spires of heaven above. we'll see you there...someday (final sob deleted)."

there's no looking behind the story. 2 headlines: Beloved MJ Dies or Troubled Icon Passed Caring. that's it. oh, and Look at all the Freakin Fans. that's as much as we get. endless retrospectives on his heyday and how cool the moon walk is. there's no scratching the surface. they barely pawed the lid in the same place over and over.

whatever. do whatever you guys wanna do. it's none of my business.

but hey, mr. celebrity uploader...mistaking dylan for mj? whoa.

I guess we all look the same after a few years in the grave.

digging in

the best palin joke I heard was Conan, "President Obama is in Russia cause he knew from there he'd be able to see Sarah Palin cleaning out her desk."

the story was of immediate yet short lived interest to me. I can't imagine her being much of a threat to Obama unless he royally screws something up. in fact, I dont consider her much of a threat period.

America hates losers, especially big time election losers, and she's got all the loser cred you can get these days. I felt sorry for her when McCain tapped her back in the summer. it was obvious she was in over her head.

some day, after we make our way through all the skin color minorities, we might actually get down to accepting White Trash Americans. somewhere toward the end of the century. then maybe someone like Sarah will have more of a shot.

it does seem somewhat odd that the 'Love it or Leave it' culture was backing someone who indeed Had pretty much left it. you can't get much further away from the heartland of America.

oh, and of course you know I think Cheney's wrong about pretty much everything. all those guys who came up through Reagan and Bush, many starting back as far as Nixon, clearly have poison in their pens and turtle wax for brains. it's good they're out there for the rest of us to see.

I just wish we could get them on the gallows before they get too far back in them hills.

Almost Feel Bad For Palin ....well, sorta.

"If Dumbfvckistan is getting ready to secede, she may go down as their George Washington, the Hockey Mother of the Country."

Someone wrote that in the comments. I love the comments. Frickn comments crack me up.....and what also cracks me up is the idea of all these people sitting all over the world staring into screens with their eyes, and with their minds, into some shared inner space that the internets are carving out year by year.

I just love it too much.

dumb ad

I just heard a stupid radio ad. it went something like...

Small business is the life blood of America, a vital part of our new economy, far more important than those stodgy giant corporations who don't understand the value of innovation and a fresh approach. If you're a young company hoping to take America in a new direction call IBM today or visit us a we'll help get you started.

I'm not sure if that's more ironic or moronic.

daddy dearest

after all the reports and interviews, why is old man jackson not under arrest for child abuse? when you get multiple accounts of "he beat us everyday" and you see the screwed up kids who came out of that environment why oh why is he not brought up on charges and sent up the river where our fine fellows in the big house can give him a proper reaming so he can die screaming as he righteously deserves?

we Have halls of justice in this country. they're called cell block C and D.


we talk about this in class every semester. people escape for a reason. we all do it, everyone all over the planet does it. some people cook, some people garden, some people smoke dope, everyone does Something.

adolescents have plenty of reasons to escape. adults have theirs. this is an escape. this blog, this internet, this computer. entertainment in general. why should drugs be off the list? it's an ingestible release like ice cream and aspirin.

the war on drugs is as stupid and asinine pursuit as any the world has ever seen. I would much rather see government declare war on pop up ads and billboards and telemarketers and price gouging. get between us and the People who are trying to exploit us, not between us and the escapes we choose.

Friday, July 3, 2009


OK, so I just posted that item which refers to drug abuse, and after I hit "publish" a big yellow ad came up onto the blogger page advertising treatment for drug abuse!

Is that kinda like Webmail where if you type tampon in your message, you'll get an ad for tampons? Or insurance and you get ads for insurance out the waz all down the side of the page?


The Establishment...The Man

I liked this..

"root causes are largely overlooked by adults. While adults will discuss the particulars (the effects), most ignore the underlying reasons which cause them. In other words, adults over 30 tend to forget about cause and effect. For example, few seem curious why kids use drugs... only their drug use is lambasted. Shouldn't the causes be attacked instead? The number one reason people use alcohol and drugs is to escape society's bizarre realities. Upsetting the natural order causes psychological damage and in the long run perilous to the species. It's not the role of government to administer private lives or habits. Pretence and hypocrisy, not its victims, should be dealt with.

By the time they're eighteen youngsters know the causes for most things even if they don’t know all the particulars an elder might. The reason most older people only concern themselves with the effects, and not the causes, is because they don't care about the big picture anymore. For example, while attention is often paid to the activities of congress, its corrupt nature is often overlooked or shelved. As long as societies are administered by elders these root problems will continue to be shelved... an ideal environment for the American establishment. Shelve it, ignore it, move on. The belief that any system which holds things together is better left undisturbed, regardless its judicial qualities, is wholly un-American. America, after all, was born of idealism."

more here
I love this quote from the LA Times' obit for MJ.

"Jackson was born Aug. 29, 1958, in Gary, Ind. His mother, Katherine, would say that there was something special about the fifth of her nine children. "I don't believe in reincarnation," she said, "but you know how babies move uncoordinated? He never moved that way. When he danced, it was like he was an older person."

The story about the mouse also really moved me. That he had a mouse he used to feed when he was really little, this house mouse, after everyone went to bed, he would crawl under the table in the kitchen and bring crackers and stuff and feed the mouse. He tamed it and wrote the song "Ben" about it. He said the mouse was a friend he could tell things to, that no one else wanted to or cared to hear.. You know he had a viciously abusive father, Joe, who beat them all and so terrified him, Michael, that he would throw up in terror when his father was looking for him.

Joe killed the mouse on purpose and it devastated him.

I'm trying to think of something more horrible, and coming up empty. No wonder the poor kid was so fucked up. Someone else was saying that after MJ died, his father was holding court outside the Encino house and smiling like a maniac. This was a guest on KABC who said this, a woman named "Crystal Ball" who said she grew up playing with the Jackson kids: she said Joe Jackson "never" smiled and that she couldn't get over how much he was smiling after MJ died. You could hear the anger in her voice.

Now as for the kids. It seems pretty clear he was a molester. There's no reason to be sleeping in bed with kids when you're a grown man. Not if they're not your own, man. It's just a thing. That's just a line you don't cross. But besides that, he really did do inappropriate sexual things. And parents didn't care, they brought their kids, got paid off or whatever, everyone was cool with it----Not, I'm sure. Someone's going to write a book about it. Just wait.

Having been in a family with a molester at its head, not my own family but one by marriage, I can tell anyone that molesters are not evil people; they are sick. What's evil is standing by and letting it happen. What's evil is anyone who doesn't stand up and confront shit that's wrong. And it's wrong. It causes so much unhappiness and fucked up emotional static that my own life still reels from the repercussions that affected everyone in the family. I'm blessed and lucky I didn't have that lot in life, but this person's crap did get passed down to me in a big way. Abuse takes different forms. And what almost always happens, if it's not stopped, is that everyone suffers.

And life's too short and too beautiful to suffer, you know? There's enough to suffer without having someone put their shit in a big wagon and hitch it to your ass to haul. And make you feel guilty if you don't want to haul it.

I know I'm talking in circles. What moves me is that this particular victim was a great entertainer. I dug that all night long last weekend, people driving through Hollywood honked all night outside my windows and blasted MJ music and honked and honked til the wee hours. I love living around that kind of respect for performance and entertainment.

The other stuff is tragic. It's tragic because it's kept such a secret and as such is not dealt with and healed properly.

Secrets kill.

That guy could have had a longer life. If ever someone's face showed that he couldn't carry the load of psychic pain alone, that would be MJ's face. He should have had treatment. Maybe his story will open up a dialogue about child abuse, who knows. Because God knows it's far more common than anyone ever thought. It's freaking everywhere. And it's not the end of the world. Things can change. But first someone's got to pay attention to them.

Trippy Kingdom: Satanism finds its vehicle in Pop Music

just go and click on any of the videos...

weirdly compelling
but not for the reasons they think, i'm afraid.

example: Madonna video, plays in the background with flashing images so you can see the unholiness of it all, while voiceovers and text on the screen tell you things like, "Madonna says crucifixes are sexy because there's a naked man on them....Madonna also blasphemed the Lord by saying Jesus Christ and Mary Magdelene probably got it on..."

I know, I start poking around these corners of the internets, what am I supposed to do. Sit here at work, this great motherfucking toy sitting in front of me all day, a portal to the universe, ah Cain't help taking some of the weird side paths.

Tim thinks I'm insane and self-flagellating to look at stuff like this. I fully realize it's compulsive. Part of me is still continually trying to figure out who's crazy, Me or Them (who? there's always someone with whacked out ideas). Anyway, that's what I've got so far today.

Anyway, they're sponsored by Coca-Cola (bottle prominently featured on the screen so you can enjoy the idea of an icy cold coke while watching about Satanism in modern rock music....just sits there the whole time) so these guys must be OK, right?

They're making more money than we are.
