The Fata Morgana on the Road to Damascus.

God talks to George W. Bush. He says so. It may be a stretch for me to say it but the hyena in the White House often reminds me of St. Paul; before and after his vision on the road to Damascus. In Christian theology, as in most of the rest of them, you’ve got your two major protagonists; God in the person of Jesus Christ and the devil in the person of whoever opposes the message of the party of the first part.

In every religion you’ve got human counterparts acting out the roles of invisible agencies that war forever against each other and have the same alternating success that day has over night and night has over day, like gamblers flipping a coin and betting on the outcome... over and over again.

St. Paul was a tormenter of Christians before his conversion and a dogmatic pain in the ass afterwards. It is St. Paul you have to thank for the runaway, Christian fundamentalists who adhere to the strict letter of the scripture and the law which, thankfully, can be interpreted any way the interpreters want, depending on the agenda at hand. It is set in stone folks... that is, until it turns into water and runs through the designer canals constructed by whatever Halliburton was at work at the time, according to the plans designed by whatever prancing drag queen- in whatever Vatican- was rolling in the hay with whatever government was fronting whichever Bush was snorting coke and talking bout Jesus. It’s the same thing, only different and... it’s new and improved.

No intelligent person actually believes that Bush went through any kind of spiritual conversion. This was an engineered public relations event that was fabricated to put lipstick on a pig. No intelligent person believes that God talks to Bushligula. Our present day Little Boots is just as certain of his privilege and just as mean and crazy as the prototype.

For those who have some occult understanding of the seeming war between God and the Devil and good and evil; for those of us that know there’s only one force that presents itself in a myriad of ways, it is clear that God and the Devil are the same thing seen from two different perspectives. The Devil is the way that evil people see God. Bushligula is evil, ergo... the God that speaks to him is The Devil and that goes for all of the rest of the Zionist, Christian Fundamentalists, neo-cons and their lackeys and business partners and the following multitudes born so bone-dead stupid that they believe the fantasy.

I’m not here to debate the existence of God or The Devil. The former is an elusive thing. The latter, at least in terms of observable phenomena, is a definite reality. Bushligula says that God talks to him so we’re looking into that.

I’d like to think that there is some kind of intelligence that creates Shakespearean dramas in order to ‘demon’strate the absolute truth of Karma. Life is a play. Sometimes it is a comedy and sometimes it is a tragedy and the two are separated from each other by a thin line called reality. What reality may be... is still under debate and we don’t expect that to change for as long as people debate it. It looks different depending on where you are standing and since you can’t stand everywhere at once, someone is always going to be arguing with you.

In a sane world, Bushligula and his puppet-master Cheney and all of the assorted swine from Animal Farm would either be in prison, hanging from the gibbet or working as strip club comics where aging whores compete for their last crack at the big time. That’s in a sane world. This world is not sane.

How can we explain the behavior of the Democrats? Who are these people? Iran has no history of attacking other nations. They aren’t about to attack the United States or their Israeli handlers. Would you walk into a police station with a slingshot and start punching out the cops screaming, “You want a piece of me?”

Look... look at the political adventurism that has resulted in this massive loss of life that is now in a seething quagmire; IN YOUR NAME PEOPLE. Look at the armed camp your country has become. Look at the daily police action against your citizens. Look at the howling jackals with the polyurethane hair on your televisions. You can’t tell the religious hacks from the newscasters and commentators; both of them spinning fables that they make up as they go. Look at your economy. Look... do I have to grab you at the back of the neck and force your eyes to see the housing crash that hasn’t put more than its nose out of the water yet? The Canadian dollar is now officially worth more than yours.

Look at Katrina. Look at Blackwater gunning down the citizens of a foreign land for sport. Look at the blatant inconsistencies in the 9/11 saga upon which all of this insanity is based. Look at the nasty whores in your congress down on their calloused knees to service agents of a foreign power who are sending your sons and daughters to die for a lie. Look at the birth defects from the depleted uranium. Look at the horror and the spectacle that is the result of a drunken, baboon prince who listens to God.

...Business as usual; the pornographic ecstasy of writhing bobble-heads, snake dancing their way to glory and kingdom come. Born again? ...Born again and again and again as the same drunk driving. Phantom of the Opera in a hockey mask; the same old Smilin’ Jack the Ripper knee-deep in the blood of strangers and thanking Jesus along with the America death-rattle choir- IN YOUR NAME. ...In your name...

I have neither the time nor the patience to list any more of the countless offenses against whatever God there may be and against so many different lives that include your own. I am weary of delineating the schematic of plots and plans and offenses. Lay down with dogs... You made your bed... Those whom the gods would destroy...

It puzzles me how this vast field of lumpen proletariats can spin the wheel in the hamster cage forever. The human race begins to look increasingly like a cannibalistic virus. When I was younger history used to puzzle me. “Why did they let it happen?” is what I used to ask myself. I used to wonder how people could be lead over and over again to the same tragic ends when the evidence of the previous tragic ends was there to be seen. Didn’t these people ever study anything or understand anything? Were they terminally incapable of seeing how point A led to point B?

Nothing less than revolution is going to do you any good now. It doesn’t matter who goes into office. It doesn’t matter what church you attend or which color of glow in the dark Jesus you’ve got holding the antenna on your TV set.

Is this what it comes to? Is this the result of every newborn’s smile? Is this what we get after all of the fine buildings and beautiful music? Is this what we get 'after' all of the marvels of technology and medicine; after all of the sacrifice and work? Is this the destiny contained in all of the great art that flowed from the wells of those inspired few who have shown us what we might have been?

Where there is life there is hope. I hope you find yourselves in time. You are collectively far more powerful than your small handful of oppressors and if you would only stop turning the wheel then the industry of your servitude, abuse and confinement would end. As long as you cooperate in what happens to you it will go right on happening. Stop participating in your own torment. Bushligula talks to God? God talks to Bushligula...? bwahahahahah... you poor fools.

Ahhh, man, you're words wash over me like silk. I find myself coming here with great anticipation. Amusing, sad, always thought provoking.
It IS time we see the situation as not a temporary problem. They mean business. We were warned.

A fucking beautiful man. I see a bad moon rising and it is a damn shame.

Brilliant Visible though grim.
Does the following have any relevance to this essay??

I have just stumbled on what seems to be a phenomenon.
Some of my friends, a family of four.
Used to be able to talk about most ‘things’ OK.
The younger member, of this family, has enticed the whole family into following the football on TV and now the household revolves around this game.
The family already discuss the lives of their favourite soapies as real people.
My TV has been gone for several years.
Our conversation is diminishing.
Generation gap? Ideological gap! Life imitating art?
And nary a nose rings in sight.

Just a quick comment in response to Tony's question --

methinks that the boob tube has much to do with it, they don't call it programming for nothing!

thanks again Les. Later, annemarie

I've been coming by here for a year now and I have to say that you remind me of the writers from the American Revolution. I know you've gotten a lot of praise here today but it is deserved. Your last three offerings have been delightful. I feel like I could man the barriers after this one and I am 75 years old. I really do want to thank you for what you are doing. I suspect many people don't see it but you are a living gem and you have given me hope in a dark hour.

hello visible,hello everyone. many dark days ahead and much work to do.of course the usual[or unusual, if it applies] suspects that come here know this already. these necros in "power" will not stop harvesting the souls of many until their plan of covering the world in a thick blanket of darkness is completed.the only way is to shine brighter than ever. we all have a divine spark in us. strike that spark until it it catches fire and turns into a raging fire of love. love is what they can not tolerate.love is what they want to take from us,to extinguish,leaving nothing but gaping holes where our hearts once beat.the scale SEEMS to be tipped in their favor, but the duality of nature WILL shine through.love will shine through whether they/us want it to or not. lets hope we are around to see/ feel it. always in my thoughts, mark.

This is an amazing blog and one with occupies a permanent tab in my browser.

Being an avid follower of all things truthful I would like to add that there is a great deal of people who concur with you, despite what you might think. Very many of my friends are active in the crusade to build a better world through our writings, our music, our civil disobedience, our comedy etc. and we stay in touch via regular updates posted around to all.

Working together is the key. Utilizing our talents and dynamic.

These are dark days and I personally believe the flag waving demons in office have no affiliation to borders or culture, and that their plans are well and truly under way while we're still wiping the smokescreen of 9/11 from our eyes.

But we have hope because of people like you.

This is an amazing blog, keep up the good work.

Holy, Holy, Holy, Les. Thank you. Ultimately; the falcon doesn`t recquire the falconer. Talk about ever widening gyres,we are in need of the outermost. It seems we`ve rarely been called to exhibit our utmost in this land of delusion.I mean,come on,is the checkout girl gonna fuck me over like she did the last time? How can Brad and Angies teeth be so white? What happened to me? How come so many sirens all the time? WTF? Well,may the good sweet earth and justice prevail. Thanks and love always, hunter......

Hey Visible did you see this?

This person has reprinted your article without linking you or naming the source. It is just presented as original. I guess that's a compliment but it's not right and it's not legal either I don't think.

Visible said...

Hmmm... Erin, yeah, that's interesting. Don't quite know what to do about that or even if I should. Thank you though.

To the kind soul who wanted me to know that there are kindred spirits. Yes, I know. For some reason it's my nature to speak the way I do. Given the tragic times in which we live I become a Jeremiad on occasion. But I do know that other souls labor in this difficult vinyard and I thank you for pointing it out.

I thank all of you for the gracious comments here. It warms my heart. I doubt that I deserve such fulsome praise but it certainly inspires me to try harder to become the person I ought to be.

There's a new essay here

Given the nature of the comments at this time I think it fits very well.

Thank you all.

While most Americans were wondering whether or not their kids were going to come home in one piece from the First Gulf War, our Congress was busy turning Christian America into Jewish America, by passing on 3/20/1991 Public Law No: 102-14

Here are portions of the law:


"Whereas the Lubavitch movement has fostered and promoted these ethical values and principles throughout the world;

Whereas Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, leader of the Lubavitch movement, is universally respected and revered and his eighty-ninth birthday falls on March 26, 1991;

Whereas in tribute to this great spiritual leader, `the rebbe', this, his ninetieth year will be seen as one of `education and giving', the year in which we turn to education and charity to return the world to the moral and ethical values contained in the Seven Noahide Laws;.."

Thomas.gov

What do these Noahide Laws encompass? Better find out, since they are now mandated by the federal govenment.

Non-Jews who (1) reject all idolatrous ideas and accept the kingship of the One G-d, (2) accept the priesthood of the Jewish people as the guardians and teachers of Torah, and (3) commit to following the Seven Noahide Laws as revealed in the Oral Torah from Mt. Sinai are "Hasidic Gentiles" or "Noahides." The term "Hasidic Gentile" is derived from a classic commentary by the Rambam, Rav Moshe ben Maimon (Maimonides), in The Laws of Kings 8:11:

"Anyone who accepts upon himself the fulfillment of these Seven Mitzvos [commandments] and is precise in their observance is considered one of the hasidei umos ha'olam ["Hasidim of the nations of the world"] and will merit a share in the World to Come.


Noahide Law

That law prohibits murder. Guess all the Iraqi's we've slaughtered weren't "murdered" but killed.
And since they weren't murdered but killed, then it's OK?
There's a point law schools can argue over.

Just watched the Phoenix Airport surveillance video on NYT of Carol Gotbaum being wrestled to the ground like some unfortunate rodeo animal by too many oinkers. What was interesting was watching the vast majority of the prozacked sheeple going by. A few momentarily glance at the obviously shrieking woman, but many others pass on w/o a glance. It's probably already too late. As more and more are grabbed and carted off in cuffs kicking and screaming the Amurkans will ignore it a la Germany 30s, USSR, PRC, now USSA... Haven't flown in five years, let the airports go bankrupt! I dont pay for my own slavery anymore. No, no mass street protests in this doomed sinkhole of a country anytime soon!
