It feels like an eternity since I last posted. I know it's been only two weeks, but you try to encapsulate the last two weeks in any way that anyone can comprehend. LOL. If you are listening, the "noise" is getting LOUD; perhaps you know how wild things are becoming. I was a news junkie long before I knew it to be newz - when I was nine, I scored 9 or 10 out of 10, on every weekly news quiz we took in the fourth grade - I might still be able to do that, but it depends on who's asking. If it's MSM news, no problem. Too simple. But if you ask me what's really going on, well, I'd still bet I'd score high, though I have to wonder if anybody really knows wtf is going on. LOL. Still, I'm overwhelmed. A balance has shifted.
I heard a joke the other day. It goes like this:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect
Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the
promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to
ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution
for the United States of America.
I remember another version, Saturday morning cartoons:
I especially like that part where the judge sticks his fingers in the barrels of the guns, of the duellers, and the guys with the guns point the barrels to the sky and the guns turn into flowers. I don't like so much how it ends, the forest cut down and the tract homes (suburbs). I can still sing the preamble.
Meanwhile, the Federal Government and the Liberty Movement are gearing up for internal war. Really. The State is increasingly appearing in the garb and manner of the para-military. In the way of releasing whatever chemical into the biosphere, they are now releasing nano-particles in consumer materials, which are released into the water, and taken into plants - almost entirely without oversight, for the basest of reasons. I'm fairly convinced Colorado-ites legalized marijuana in part unconsciously, because they know deep down how much cancer they are likely to have to contend with, with all that fracking going on, and increasing. The sun is in a strange lull, and asteroids and meteorites are whizzing by and crashing into the earth with a seeming increasing regularity (there have been others since this link appeared.) But you'll be happy to know the former CFO of Lehman Bros is trying to have a baby, and Housing is on the rebound. And Obama wont TARGET you with a drone here in America, IF you are a NON-COMBATANT (but if you are a combatant, for ANY reason, well then... Oh, and if you are collateral damage it doesn't count.) Oh and Jeb Bush is running for President, because I guess the first two Bush's were so great for America, what with GHWBs New World Order, and Father and Son's combined wars, (and by extension, the nazi-financing patriarch, Prescott, Jeb's and G-dubs grandpa.) Jeb wants to bring approx. 40+ million people to America, to even out the demographic. Because there are so many jobs I guess (and what with the across the-board militarization, and drones, and chemicals, phtlatlets and nanoparticles, and Jebs desired expansion of fracking of the DICK Cheney-unregulated industry, well, what kind of psycho nazi motherfuckers do you intend to immigrate, Jeb?)
Which is why I hesitate to blog, these days, I guess, too. I'd very much like to get away to some wilderness somewhere. But there is no wilderness anywhere remaining, with this kind of reach, when no living thing cannot escape the menace of it. Did I mention we were 7 billion people? Have you seen the condition of Hanford? Have you followed the progress of Fukushima? What faith do you have that this is not going to be the condition of every single one of the the existing nuclear facilities and weapons, when the status quo accepts that? What's that? Henry Paulson wants to move to Puerto Rico? I guess you can with 9.5 billion, Treasury Secretary. Alexander Hamilton was born somewhere 'round the Caribbean, remember. LOL. God Bless America. But I'm not sure Puerto Rico is going to be far enough, if every one of those nuclear facilities goes by way of gross negligence in the event of social upheaval brought on by economic meltdown? BTW - have you heard that antibiotics have ever only put off a day of reckoning?
Well, it's not 1984 anymore. O wait, I turned 11 then. What was going on?
I know. Creepy. And in my experience it rarely performs the true promise of it.
Take heart though. George Mobus is optimistic, this is a time of evolutional change.
I agree. There are seeds of a new Aeon. Something about a shift, from fish to water bearer. I know, you think that's an old joke, a song, of the past. The Age of Aquarius. But it's a fact, a cycle embedded in the stars, and you can't stop it, you can only accept it, or fight it (or I suppose remain indifferent). Which I keep telling people, there's more to that Mayan 2012 thing than you think :)
Which btw, I still very much like to sing the preamble. Here's some more homework - which of the ten Amendments of the Bill of Rights have been effectively nullified? (Hint, it's most of 'em.)
Which, I forgot to mention, I distributed those white pine logs around the garden.
- I hope they'll attract a buyer, once the remodel is complete, and they're all proped up, with potted plants on top? And I got a new job. I get to talk to people about gardening all day! (Granted, I'll be making early industrial era wages - somebody somewhere will be making big money, but not me - but more on that later.)
