When Kurt Vonnegut hitchhiked his way from Camp Atterbury, home to Indianapolis, having just been mustered out of the second world war…what was on his mind?

Was he thinking about the fire-storm that he survived in Dresden, war in general or did he realize that the mental notes he had made about these events would turn into a best-seller? When he penned “Slaughter-House Five”, did he realize the importance of having been the sole journalist on the scene of the Dresden massacre would win, then lose importance in the Amerikan view of the “good war”?

When it was celebrated as the great war novel, it was quickly shoved into that genus of “leftist” efforts and appreciated only for it’s excellence as a novel… with it’s historical proportions being tsk…tsk-ed by all reviewers and hence to literary history.

Was he, like his protagonist Billy Pilgrim, naive and unaware of the importance of such a journalistic, not novel observation? I think not. Like he said many times…”Hi-Ho”.

I think he was ambivalent about his experiences in the war and his keen mind that judged them. He simply gave up in the face of publishers and well-wishers, the idea that WE were the “AXIS” after all. Who else could be capable of horrific mass-murder on a scale such as Dresden…a city destroyed with no military objective other than terrorism? To take such observations to their logical conclusion might have brought this journalist/novelist’s career to an early end. I can’t say I blame him for throwing a “sucker-punch” and leaving it at that.

But it says much about the “winner” status. The winners write the history, they say. We are living that even now. With god-only-knows how many holohoax museums from Auschwitz to Alaska…the lies are forever present…formulating the next “good war”.


The jewish maze, The Lust Boat and Where is the Money?

I have listened and read a lot about the economy recently
as have we all. From scathing interviews with clueless economists to angry(not really) congresscreatures about
unbridled profit mongering and bonuses in the the wall street banks. But in all of this bru-ha-ha(with ephasis on the ha ha), everyone stops at the point in the money maze, where a normal person would ask “WHERE is the money?”
It can’t just disappear.

There are famous hedge-mazes all over the world
and they are fun. I have been in a few and like a house of mirrors in a county fair, the feeling of mild panic is a minor thrill along with the cotton-candy your are eating as you make your way through the puzzle. But, as I have been in the midst of these mazes, it always occurs to me that if I had a high vantage point to
see the trails as a whole, it would be simple to negotiate my way to the center of the equation.

I have found, as many out here have, that from that vantage point of anti-semitism, anti-zionism, or just anti-asshole…whatever you wish to call it, one can see much more of the maze and it’s twists and turns for what they are, and where they lead.

Bernie(the scammer) and his imminent death and closed-coffin funeral/flight to Tel-Aviv should tell the common person that he along with other thieving zionists are following the moolah to where they all feel that it will do the most good…to israeli coffers. What are they planning for all this US taxpayer money they have stolen and shipped there through various jewish scams? That’s anybody’s guess, but I am sure it has something to do with another “dirty little war”. The answer to that one crucial question would provide a higher vantage point to the maze, if anyone would just ask it. “WHERE IS THE DAMNED MONEY?”…but no one does. Not Bill Moyers, not Alex Jones not We Are Change…no one. They keep leading us up this path or down that one to no avail. Hmmm…and we are stuck in the maze. No one wants to tell you to follow the cash.

Little dead ends in the maze can distract and delay us. Even the best of us. Was JFK on the “lust boat” with these honeys during the democratic convention before his election? Was this the photo in the drawer that his handlers threatened/promised him the oval office chair with? Who knows…and more importantly…who cares. Get your vantage point. Watch the jooze in power and follow the money.

I’m gonna go out on a limb here…I will try my hand at predictions. The next false-flag instigated by isra-hell/CIA will be to attack and sink the latest symbol of western opulence, “The Genesis”. How fitting…genesis…the beginning…of the world war that ends all world wars. The sinking of some ship or other is a tried-and-true way to get the party started. Of course the Jihadists will be blamed and some nut-job will be held up for our 15 minutes of hate each day as the ME becomes a blood-bath for the zionist’s cleansing. If I was Bibi…that’s what I would do. Of course if it DOES happen this way, I guess I will have to sign off here, for having fore-knowledge…hell, I might even be the patsy…I am a bit of a nut-job.

Dark Passage…it’s YOUR Fault

“We’re all afraid of only three things. Embarrassment, pain and death…”

That line from Dark Passage, delivered by the evil back-alley surgeon to Bogie in the 1947 film-noire
classic “Dark Passage” hit me like a ton of bricks when I first saw it. I thought “is that true?” I plotted through all the myriad of fears that seem to plague mankind…and he was right. What an epiphany.

As I have stated here before, I live for old movies. They show us the psyche of the times, the emerging amorality of the jooze that ran(and still do) the studio movie-machine AND they were entertaining.

The good doctor hit the nail on the head…he knew, as the powers-that-be know now that we will do most anything as a society and as individuals to avoid the big three. Fear of death is obvious. It rules our most rudimentary behaviour and is ingrained in the aptly named “self-preservation” instinct. It is basic. Fear of pain takes on a host of sub-catagories..from dentists to grief to a fist-fight, we will do a lot to avoid or postpone such events.

But fear of embarrassment, there is where they have us.Our leaders certainly use the power of our fears of death and pain, however….as I have mapped all the fears in our lives, I find that fear of embarrassment is the most powerful of them all. Bear with me here. As innocuous as they may seem, the fears of seeming stupid, uncaring, callous, politically incorrect or generally different from the rest of the herd, exert an horrific influence on us all. Negative control of that influence of “group-think” can produce the behaviour that we see in the world today. When we give this sensitive fear-of-embarrassment phenomenon over to MSNBC and their ilk, we have given them the reins of our lives.

So what do we do when we choose to reason things out for ourselves and come up with different conclusions than the groups to which we ostensibly belong…like family, work and community? We find groups that are more like us to join and not only pool our like-minded views, but to ease that “fear” of embarrassment.

Over the years, I have become and “embarrassment” and a subject of raised eyebrows to my family and communities. “Here he goes again about the jews”, or 9/11 or politics in general (we all look for converts) Certainly, that causes me some embarrassment, but I find solace knowing that I have another community here in which my opinions are taken with more interest. No one in her family really wants to hear about how your Aunt Hattie did pearl-one knit-two, except her knitting group. Same thing. We all find our groups that understand and empathize with us. I can’t say I care much for knitting, but human suffering is important to me. Perhaps too important.

It’s YOUR fault!
When bygone memes are demonized…burning of fossil fuels to get to work, thinking homosexuality is a bit disgusting, thinking that Muslims are just people with a different religion and the like(you all know the “political-correctness” drill),
we readily accept blame for having been so insensitive as to have held these practices in any esteem before the talking heads told us no-no. We as the herd are blamed for everything imaginable by our leaders and their media while they remain above reproach. Fine. But there comes a point…a critical mass in which the fear of embarrassment is going to come within sight of the fear of pain and death. When that moment happens in the human herd, as in lower animals there will be a temporary period of chaos, splitting into groups and a “dark passage” into a different age….a sort of New World Order.

I, for one, am ALL in favor of a new world order…as long as the order is changed from the bottom-up. Change to a world that works to repress these basic fears, not exploit them.

Too……many notes.

SLAP! SLAP! SLAP! The hits just keep on comin!

“What’s with all the anti-semitism?”…and “You need more pictures and maybe some jokes” or “Well…you can only read so much”
Did Mozart ever have one of those days? Maybe I’ll pack it in…then again…maybe not

Integrity, the Goat and Revolt…

My mother liked to tell the story of her mother and the goat.

Her family were farmers and as she told it, her mother once tied a goat that she wanted to sell to a for-sale sign in the front of the house. A woman stopped by and asked my Grandmother how much she wanted for the animal and also asked her “what’s the matter with it?” She told the woman “five dollars, and there’s nothing wrong with it”. As the woman began examining the beast she asked again “are you sure there’s nothing wrong with it?” Grandma answered. “Lady, when I die someday and I get to the pearly-gates, I don’t want a goat blocking my way in”. I remember distinctly, asking what she meant by that, the first time I heard it as a child because my mother answered with a phrase that she repeated to me over the years and has stayed with me: “If you have nothing else, have the courage of your convictions”

Notwithstanding the religious reference… Integrity…there is a hell of a philosophy there. If you were to dangle any kind of religion before me, you wouldn’t get a nibble. But this life as some sort of test?…I’ll bite on that one. It has something to do with free will. When can’t you afford to live as your conscience tells you? And how far will you go to assure the entrance into your own personal heaven? I look at people like Rachel Corrie and Fredrick Toben and so many others that in these troubled times have the courage of their convictions and are afraid of no retribution for acting on their views. Those that face imprisonment and death itself for what they know is right should humble us all.

I have noticed an edge in the landscape of the alternative news and opinion pages. That edge is becoming more and more distinct as we see the world for what it actually is, and share our visions. That edge is revolution. Few if any have yet to call us over it. But I fear it is not the civil revolution that we all preach and hope against hope will defeat the powers of those in charge at this moment in history. It is the violent one. I am reminded of the scene from “V” in which the head of the police when asked what he thinks will happen next, replies that someone will “make a mistake”. Too many people out there like that movie…and for angry reasons. If it happens that way, for whatever reasons…food riots…bank riots…we can only hope that it isn’t taken down to that violent level of the oppressors themselves and that the goat of our convictions is not forsaken.
