The Department of Divide and Conquer.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be cold and wet.

In recent days we have explored a certain region of America's heart of darkness. One way or another, the dysfunctional side of the culture is in the majority and this accounts for the state of the nation. There are several larger blocks of hive mind that share ghastly similarities though the members of each might not see the connection. On the surface, and there is only the surface, large population segments exist in conditions very similar to those experienced by the animals at large factory farms. In the case of religious fundies, it is the dogma and cant that operate as the Krazy Glue, which holds the subculture together in something resembling those large floating islands of plastic in the Pacific. There's another subculture that is also religion based and involves celebrity worship. At one point, Kim Kardashian had over six million friends on Facebook. Now that seems to have translated over into 'likes'. I've never seen the reality show but I did see a couple of episodes of Paris Hilton's BFF, or whatever its called. That was a horrifying experience. I sense that the popularity of these thing will forever outstrip my own works and just about everyone else who might engage in even rudimentary complexities of thought. There's some kind of hidden law that controls these things, like where the worst poet of all time, Rod McKuen made six million dollars in one year that probably exceeds the collective return of all the great poets in history. Maybe not but close.

Every summer, thousands of Americans set out in Jetstream campers and Winnebagos to visit American malls. That's how they spend their summer vacation. A smaller number take walking tours of serial killers homes and killing fields. Impoverished youth with no way to afford a college education, enter the military for a ritual brutalization of their being, whose object is to make them desensitized. This was one of the reasons for the destruction of the economy; to force young people into a militarized setting. I could go into detail about the implications but the reader is smart and agile enough to intuit the many ramifications.

There is another very large subculture that contains other subcultures and all of them are internet related. Only a very small number of us go to alternative news sites. A far larger collection are religious gamers (yes, that is also a religion), porno addicts and celebrity junkies. There's also a lot of gamblers, scammers and various sport enthusiasts. Once you add together all of these people, as well as groups I haven't mentioned, with their own particular focus, you have a majority of the American people. Most of these collectives may seldom cross each others paths but their hive mind vibrates across the landscape and engages in eerie counterpoints with one another. It creates harmonics that might have been the envy of John Cage, if John Cage had suffered from both Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease combined with a liquid diet of Ripple wine; do not cue the Grateful Dead.

These diverse yet connected cultures all contribute to the state of the times. They each possess a type of fanaticism, except in the cases where they are self involved and indifferent. This is the most worrisome thing about the late, great United States. It's the existence of the total of these things that permits all of the unfortunate things that are happening to happen. This is aided and abetted by the pharmaceutically dependent, the alcoholic saturates, the fast food fueled, bad health epidemic, the liberal and conservative warfare of mutual denigration and contempt. These are liberally seasoned with agenda driven, fabricated news and shallow entertainments. The necessity to escape into all of this, is the result of a systematic assault on the economy and individual human rights. The willingness and stupidity of so many, to trust their government and the corporations and bankers who own it, is the cause of the conditions that surround you today.

The cosmos is conscious and because harmony is an imperative and harmony is gone, people are required to wake up. This is why conditions are steadily worsening, eventually extremity will serve as the hand on the shoulder. I realize that many people believe this is all being done by some shadowy group of satanic psychopaths but they are on rails just like everyone else. Everything is under control for the purpose of demonstration. You might well ask then, why I rail at certain elements of society. What purpose does it serve and what difference does it make, if everything is under control anyway? It's my job. I'm not always effective at it and I'm not always right but it's what I do and any number of others are engaged in it too, because all of that is under control as well. Like The Bard said, we're all actors, having our exits and entrances.

This run of history that has brought us to this moment is guided by the theme of the age. It has had an evolution of hierarchies, infrastructures, cultural and technical transitions that were all a part of the stage setting for the actions and events of the age. At the present point everything is rigidifying or becoming a mockery of its former self. When an age departs the last stages are decadence and oppression. This is the reflex action of the movers and shakers to hold on to their power base but that is impossible because the whole dynamic is shape-shifting into something else. The 'manifest' radiance of the archetypes and symbols that have given structure to the environment, have either been perverted beyond recognition, turned into their opposite. or diluted until there is no integrity in it. This is the time when people make fun of everything or lapse into apathy and become indifferent to those around them. It is a time of isolation as well as a congregation of collective madness. in which the participants all share a common insanity. This strength in numbers makes the abnormal normal because of the shared perspective on what is real and what is desirable. Everywhere people are seeking community because community has gone missing. The central family unit is under direct attack from the Department of Divide and Conquer.

This mass insanity is what makes it possible for so many people to integrate into and adjust to something that is anathema to the basic essentials that held it all together. We are in the time of the tyranny of minorities, with the unthinking assent of the majority. The glamor of temporary things, veils the sight and consciousness from the reality of what is actually taking place. Those who serve the darkness, are informed by the darkness and are always two steps or more ahead of all the adjustments that have to be made by those affected by them. To be in control is to be independent from the conditions and confinements of the world you control. Those with the highest degree of self interest and selfishness are the ones with the greatest impetus to be at the levers and reins. This is why, with few exceptions, outright criminals are in charge of all the things that make life easier and not easy at all.

The masses are most effectively controlled by managed distraction and by having their focus and apprehensions manipulated with regular changes that bring new difficulties and new enemies around like clockwork. The public is intentionally split up into opposing groups who are denied access to their commonality of interest. by fabricated outrages from the one side and then the other side. Conservative and liberal are natural inclinations for particular types and viewpoints. The one does not want what the other wants and routine conflicts are set up to highlight the differences. Religions have been transformed into brainwashing centers that amplify the differences between them in order to maintain discord and suspicion. They are also each imbued with their own personal rightness and the wrongness of every other. The resident force that sits at the head of these religions is the ancient enemy, not the eternal friend. This is why there is the emphasis on an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth and why we have so many blind people gumming each other to death.

Comfort and security, personal power and elevated station. are things to be defended at all costs by the people who possess them. Keeping what they have and endlessly adding more is what they do with their day. When corporations rise to become more powerful than the nations, the governments naturally fall under their control. When that happens, no laws are passed that do not benefit them and more and more laws are passed or done away with. so that they can enjoy ever greater latitude at the expense of their fellows. The possibility for general advancement is shut down. Everything becomes compartmentalized and stratified. Because corporations make enormous profits from war, war becomes an economic necessity. Because corporations make enormous profits from human misery, human misery becomes an economic necessity. Because more and more laws create more and more criminals, housing these perceived malefactors becomes big business. Everything is geared toward the maximum possible profit with the minimum expense. This leads to the destruction of trade unions, the exploitation of illegals, offshoring, reduction in every type and kind of benefits, followed by an increase in the cost of all those things no longer covered by benefits.

Because general society cannot possibly return to any kind of desirable norm while it is being looted and ruined by those in a position to do it, something has to be done about those doing it and... something will be done. It will not be pretty or pleasant. in many cases and it will be generated by the unacceptable conditions that result in push coming to shove. That's how it works and mysterious laws govern the appearance and application of necessary change. What needs to happen will happen when critical mass is achieved.

Why is it like this? The cycles I mean. Nothing can be done about it if it is a natural cycle.
what is the point?
I never get the point and it is a frustration that is growing into apathy.

Visible, I have been on the internet for at least 15 years. In that time not a single other writer has come close to what you do every day and some might manage it once in a year. Thank you man. When it was black as pitch your courage, conviction and willing admittance of shortcomings has taken me through things that would have taken me. You literally speak the truth inside the heart of the reader and not just me. I can't thank you enough. If it were not for you I would not be here.

sorry about talking about hunters and everything people,,
but when a horrible crazed monster turns up throwing tantrums in a schitzaphraenic crazed death dance to kill and maim as many things as it can,before it crashes into the pits of itself,,,we have to do something
so how do we look at the situation? indigenous cultural peoples have already pretty much mapped this route out,,,,they hunt it,
it is natural for them to hunt it,,,

anyway i was only saying....neil

Hello Visible,

Glad to see you back to a more coherent and productive dialogue.
In reading your last few posts and reader "comments", I rather wondered if you were just flushing out the elemental hatred being programmed into the unwitting, by the unwitting...

These recent lines of yours are just wonderful:

"This is why there is the emphasis on an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth and why we have so many blind people gumming each other to death."

Very happy to see the christian toilet flushing is over- for now.

Best regards,

Divide and Conquer: Divide and Rule: The old, old game as first expostulated by Julius Caesar. Well, gang, the Ides of March is upon us in a mere four days. Vernal Equinox is only 9 days away in this year of great changes.

Vis: Generally, you and i share high levels of congruence and synchronicity. Your life experiences and levels of psychedelic attainments eclipse mine, however; giving you access to frequencies and channels on a more sustained and ongoing basis. So my role here, is more of supplemental supplication along with occasional clarifications and amplifications of the thematic thrust.

One clarification. You cite the circumstances that "make the abnormal normal". IMHO normalcy or normality sits at the core of the problem with American culture today. What you describe in the essay is a lowest common denominator/dominator effect. Corrupted institutions have long debased American culture to such a degree that the vast majority of Americans have consistently and almost constantly chosen to take the easy way out.

In an unpublished manuscript dating to 1980 or so, i described this phenomenon as "The Adjustment Racket". You gotta go along to get along. You adjust to the wants, needs and imperatives of the peer group and thus you become a "well adjusted" member of the pack.

Case in point. The rural school district where i live, facing the now ubiquitous budget shortfalls, decided a couple years ago to shorten the school week to a four day run. Meanwhile, long bus rides and pep fests still go on, boosting the most important feature of contemporary education: Interscholastic athletics. Volleyball, basketball and football rule the school. The local school board represents the mass mindset of the neighborhood. Their budgetary considerations follow the mean, the norm, the agenda of mass class mindlessness.

Vis. You also reference "the central family unit", or as i prefer to call it, the "Nuke Family". Industrialization and immigration destroyed the old world culture which still dominated this land up to WWI and was still a major factor in American culture up to the Second WW. I happened to have the good fortune to grow up with immigrant homesteader grandparents on both sides of the family and amidst aunts, uncles and cousins galore. We visited. All this pretty much came to an end in the late 50's as our household bought a one-eyed god leading to gradually heightened levels of videocy. Compounding this situation, my nuke family fell into the rural unemployment trap and we were forced to move to the Sitties.

One of my personal core beliefs is that there is a strong metaphorical connexion between the advent of nuclear power and the primacy of the nuclear family. The extended family was molecular and organic,by contrast. A nuclear metaphysics
later split even the nuke family as social trends of several types resulted in higher levels of divorce and dissolution. Thus was the family atom split. This development began in the late 60's, really took off in the 70's and went viral in the 80's.

To again segue back to your thematic thrust and into your concluding remarks, Vis, and to further develop my own observations and metaphorical melding; my conclusion, too, is that " a critical mass (of the awakening consciousness of individuals) is achieved". It is the Hundredth Monkey phenomenon.

The critical mass necessary for incredible levels of social change does not have to include the masses of media-mesmerized morons. When the majority of the creative minority gets it, Archimedes lever is duly emplaced. Massive social change becomes axiomatic.

Dear Mike and Kathy... rereading your comments caused me to recall the URANUS/NEPTUNE CONJUNCTION AT 19 DEGREES CAPRICORN which was exact in 1992.

This particular astro aspect has cyclically been the one that ushers in new societal REVOLUTIONS-the last one being when the INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION occurred and what a revolution for world wide society that one was eh?

So when these cycles replay-it is out with the old and in with the NEW. When in 1992-really about three years run with these planets forward and reverse movements taking so long to complete-the word was this NEW SOCIETAL REVOLUTION WOULD BE A 'SPIRITUAL' REVOLUTION.

Well that was when it was as bleak with the liars, thieves, murderous war mongers as now times and I just could not see how this could be.

Then the blatant manipulations of the interest rates coming down from their double digit highs during the prior TWENTY YEARS of damn near depression in CA... and the wild and crazy criminal actions of those in politics-but now with Uranus in ARIES-and Neptune newly ensconced in PISCES and with Pluto in Capricorn-I do believe that when Pluto in Capricorn hits that triggering degree of 19 degrees it will be the triggering of the SPIRITUAL REVOLUTION prophesied due to the historical cyclings of that same conjunction aspect.

This war tactic of 'divide and conquer' is also that of the 'separation of the wheat from the tares/chaff'.

Dr Bernard Jensen studied diets around the world-interesting man to read... and he was really worried in the FIFTIES that due to 'the seed of life being stripped out of the wheat that it was causing degeneracies in the teenagers who-hungering for that seed of life-were looking for nourishment in all the wrong places, like: perversions, sex, drugs, and COMIC BOOKS'...

A lot of the 'seed of life' has been stripped off of a whole lot of humanity due to the chemical poisoning of individuals and the environment world wide. Besides poisoning us with Fluoride in our water systems, many of the drugs given out like candy are fluoride based. I've known many who said they took Prozac for instance and said 'it seemed like my SOUL was outside myself and it scared me so much I got off of those damn pills immediately and threw them away'.

Coincidence that the mass drugging of so many would coincide with a historical cycling of the Uranus/Neptune conjunction in Capricorn which is to usher in the SPIRITUAL REVOLUTION making it physically impossible for hundreds of MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TO PARTICIPATE due to the annihilation or splitting of their souls due to just the fluoride factor?

I am praying with everything I have that the radiation from Japan has not harmed the precious trees that surround me. We've had NO winter to speak of this year right next to the Continental Divide... that is something not willingly discussed by the mass people either. hahahahahah

missingarib said...

vis, the radiation situation is under reported
http://snippits-and-slappits.blogspot.com/2012/03/new-los-angeles-radiation-tests-highest.html
the "homeland" will soon be preoccupied with the health effects and the ensuing finger pointing- reports of a virus infecting nuclear reactors has not been fully investigated (seems moot anyway) and whether it's the Isrehell mistake as cliff high spoke about is his report is only a guess,however it amounts to full spectrum killing.
So, the situation is evolving.

The biblical description of bitter waters, dead oceans contaminated food is all too real-


The Japanese situation should have shook up the whole paradigm with regard to nuclear energy but it hasn't - so sometimes it feels like jabbing a pitch fork into a large pile of hay hoping to kill a couple of vermin but with no visible signs of success -

your writing is a boon,I wish we(collective) could lead more sheep to your stream of thoughts but as the saying goes leading the sheep to water is no guarantee they will drink.

You are probably one of the wisest and most visionary people on the net and one of the best writers in the blogosphere. I always love reading your articles, whether or not I agree with their basic premises.

You write great truths, but I believe you exaggerate in some ways. You are right about the majority being amoral idiots who don't know that the world could be a much nicer place if everyone would get their head out of their butt and pay attention.

But I think you’re wrong insofar as you imply that it’s very much worse now than it’s ever been. It may be a little worse now than say 50 years ago, but humanity has always suffered greatly from its own stupidity, and probably always will.

And as you know there is a cyclic tendency with this trend as there is with so much of existence. I think we may be near the trough of this cultural Dark Age.

I hope so anyway.

I don't know why your song, at the top of the page, wouldn't make it into the Christian charts ..... there's an irony.

Cajun/country perhaps?

You've got a warm voice and your lyric is clear.

There's also a singalong quality about the song.

maybe you're not pretty enough ... it's a mystery ...

I do know that few of the people I know actually buy music. They don't download it 'free' either.

They listen as it passes, like it it or not and move on.

I don't know many people so - there you go.

Of course, the world a la Hollywood wants anthemic, upbeat and cheersful songs which can SELL.

Hold on .... you could sell lightbulbs with this song :)

Don't know if you're aware of this but youtube videos can be made just using a single photo as a video backdrop.

A younger friend assures me that his age group don't want to use up their mobile phone plan to download a video that they can't see.... it's the song that matters.

It's an easy process to make these 'videos'.

Whether people are interested is another matter ... chuckle .... didn't work for me but I'm happy to have done it.

Hi "Joe" or "Les". I just had a realization: You are Jewish aren't you? You used the terms "muzzies" "fundies" and what not in your writings occasionally. Plus, When I read your opinions in California, you never came around. Yet, when I was responding to your writings in NY, you mysteriously and coincidentally showed up and introduced yourself as "Joe" at the Dunkin Donuts remember? You live out here in NY, and you are a Jew Les. You don't like Christians or Muslims, you promote Satanism, drug usage and consumption, fornication, dancing naked in the rain and what not, and you write from a perspective of extreme self-hatred for being a Jew yourself. You are a Jew Les, I understand you now. As for Jews, I don't care for them much. Even when I tried to be nice, they always offend and act like those monkeys from "Congo". You say hello and smile, they say fuck you. You help them out, they try to hurt you. I guess when you have been on Satan's payroll for so long, it doesn't bother you anymore. But they should be smart enough to know, that Satan has no loyalty, escpecially to monkeys. And GOD, once you leave him, doesn't forgive or forget or have mercy. I guess that's why you guys have one triangle pointed up and one down, because you don't know what is which and you are hoping for one side of the divine to accept you. You and your race are not good, at all. Your pressure and smear tactics, your manipulation, blackmail, coercion and other sneaky Jew ways are the reason why Jews are unwelcome in every nation in the world. Now you guys wrecked America. I wonder, what will happen to Jews in America when the House of David made of poker cards comes tumbling down. Perhaps a real holocaust? The kind not seen in Shindler's List with those oh so nice Germans? Or maybe Magneto from X-men can save the day huh? You monkeys are funny, sadly funny. Later Jew.

Visible,

even though the following comment actually belongs over on your other blog, i am also posting it here as well. i just want to make sure you don't miss it. please feel free to delete it (unpublish it), after you have read it. you can respond here, or over there, as you wish.

[the following comment refers to your mistaken and incorrect assertion that i said "god loves everything"]:

-----------------------------------

Visible,

you are again incorrect.

you continue to (wrongly) assert that i wrote "god loves everything".

you are quite mistaken. so yes, i absolutely do deny saying that.

in my last previous comment, i made it quite clear to you that i did NOT say "god loves everything". yet now you again continue to claim that i did.

YOU are the one who needs to go back and read my two initial comments.

i did NOT say (write) "god loves everything". it is not written anywhere in either one of those two comments that i posted on:

Saturday, March 10, 2012 10:05:00 AM

Saturday, March 10, 2012 10:08:00 AM

moreover, i think (in this particular instance) you are referring to a different comment posted by a different individual.

i think you are reacting to a comment that was posted by a fellow named "Thomas", on Saturday, March 10, 2012 1:02:00 AM

in that comment posted by Thomas, Thomas writes: "God loves EVERYthing".

fyi, i am not Thomas. my name is not Thomas. and i did not say "god loves everything".

yet it is clear that, up to this point, you still continue to address your reaction and response to me, claiming that i wrote "god loves everything". however, as i told you before, i did NOT write that.

here is exactly what you wrote (in last your response to me):

Visible said...
Actually you did say 'everything'. You said 'everyone and everything' Go back and read your comment. YOu wouldn't have heard from me if you hadn't said that. Now you deny saying it with the evidence right there.
Sunday, March 11, 2012 11:34:00 AM

you are clearly wrong Mr Visible. apparently you were/are confused.

nevertheless, i would appreciate an apology, and it would behoove you to be a bit more careful about making assertions about people (like me) saying (writing) something that they actually did not write.

if you had gone back and read my two comments, like you told me to do, then you would have seen that you are mistaken. you would have seen that it was Thomas, and not me, who said "god loves everything".

i hope this clears up your error, and i hope you will see fit to apologise for continuing to make a faulty and erroneous assertion about what i said, even after i specifically told you that i did not say what you claimed that i said.

I should tell you folks that the eye for an eye thing is not my original composition. I'm sure I heard it somewhere.

I put in the comment from that bi polar schitzo for the humor it contains. 've never introduced myself as Joe and I haven't been in a Dunken donuts in several decades.

WTCSkeptic; I agree with what you say. I did not intend to convey the thought the way you took it. I don't remember now where I said it or the context but I think I meant to imply things were worse in recent events, not overall. There have been some seriously fucked up moments in the way back.

David, I appreciate your egalitarian ways. I sense the presence of high intellect (grin).

As for the apology, I'm reluctant to apologize to someone who takes himself so seriously. If I get any opportunity to where I can apologize, trust me, I will.

"The 'manifest' radiance of the archetypes and symbols that have given structure to the environment, have either been perverted beyond recognition, turned into their opposite, or diluted until there is no integrity in it."

If I may speak to Aunt Franny (etc.), in case she is listening:

Vis' excellent comment above shows how the 'bad guys' influence manifestation.

Way back, one of my teachers had us go through our closets and 'feel' our immediate reaction to a given item. He urged us to dispose of items that we reacted to with sad, angry, etc., emotions and keep the rest.

This teacher's knowing was that every time we passed our eyes across an item (consciously or not), a tiny surge of manifestation was triggered. Items that produced pleasurable reactions tended to produce pleasurable manifestations, and items that produced painful reactions tended to produce painful manifestations.

Remember, (one) that we are manifesting all the time, period. And, (two) manifesting consists of whatever thought you are holding (consciously or not) and an input of emotion. You can probably see where I'm going...

Returning to Vis' comment above, you can now understand how archetypes and symbols are incredibly important as 'conditioners' of manifestation. If you can 'poison' just one, you have just 'converted' millions of people from pleasurable manifestors to painful manifestors. Terribly efficient.

By the way, you can avoid being a 'contributor' by learning the pleasurable origins of a symbol and insisting on that 'purpose', every time you see it. Sometimes, being 'awake' is harder than being 'asleep'.

Best Wishes,

Les I think the guy who accused you of Drinkin' Do-nuts must have possibly inherited your old , worn out , dyslexic keyboard . What he meant to type was , " You are a Jewel " .

Someone said this : " A friend's 17 year old son became hysterical yesterday when his Mother listened to some of the heavy metal garbage on his ipod and in outrage deleted it all. Enlightenment is brewing!!! "

I want to be really unkind here but will resist . Imagine you said " My friends racist white dad deleted all the hip -hop tracks from his daughter's i-pod " in this scenario our sympathies are with the listener and not the censor . None of this matters , my point is that kids who listen to rock and metal are usually intelligent , slightly sensitive people who " GET IT " much more than other demographic popsters .

Metal has myriad sub-genres , ranging from the Christian to the Satanic , the hedonistic to the party line .

In a nutshell : There are a lot of very wise and lovely people that make and listen to rock and metal .

Ill informed predudice .

scr*w you PERRY COMO !!!!

WV : " Mallith Therprod " well , Ive got the character's name , Ill just write the book backwards from there

Off topic, but I agree. 'I Need More Light' is a nice country tune, for someone who isn't too big on country in general. (Well, I like bluegrass, but this is another animal.) I listened to it several times, and I'll listen to it again. Keep 'em coming. File 'em somewhere, where they can't be lost, so they don't disappear into the abyss of what time we have left.

Man, thank you for your support. I'm going to put a tune with each post now and maybe I'll get lucky and finally Willie Nelson will do one of my songs. I get high, now and then. He gets high now and then and now and then. I'm a big fan of his music but I got songs in every style, even got a bluegrass song called Iridescent Dreams. I'm probably going to head toward Shamballa shortly, anyway.. so it doesn't make that much difference now. I really would have liked to get my songs to him and George Strait and one or two others but eventide coming you want to get a head start.

Of course it would be great if those musicians you love do your song but it is a hit song just as is. I have a collection I was working on of really danceable tunes that I can hoop (hula hoop) to, that are spiritual songs. I'll be needing this one. And my hooping friends would like it, too.

Hello
Yesterday I came across a 5 favourite book list, on here somewhere, that had "Lord of the Rings" as #5, included a Dickens one "David Copperfield" I believe, anyway I believe the One who shared this list would enjoy the book:The Invention of Hugo Cabret"

Hopefully someone can pass this along.

Great song!
I felt like I was strolling past the Broken Spoke on a Sunday night.

I'm now shouting out to Willie to pick it up and play it forward!

Willie! Willie! Pick it up!
Take it to the Broken Spoke and lay it on down!

When I was locked up in Texas some many years ago, Willie's brother Doyle was my hearts partner! We got on real well as he's so good natured. When he was released he couldn't find his shoes. (one thing I do plead guilty to!)
We did leave him his skivvies..

So Doyle! John Campbell! (he was there for a spell too) do yourselves a favor and pass this music forward to Willie. Whoops.. I think maybe John has passed and hangs out with Townes Van Zandt.

I once spent most of a weekend drinking with Townes. All those years ago.

We laughed so hard we cried as we rolled around in the dirt singing old songs, slurring a whole lot of nearly everyone with a drunken philosophy of a spotted skunk and a mangy rangy coyote I think we decided on.

Damn, I'm gonna have to lay off your music for a spell, Les visible prabhu. You're either a good influence or a bad habit, I ain't decided yet..

Hope this helps.
Stranger things have happened, as we all know.

"...the fast food fueled, bad health epidemic,..."

I have to take issue with that statement as it has just been 'proven' that global warming is the cause of all of our fatness! See for yourself!

But in the main, your assessment of the ONE PARTY system of things is quite astute. But you come on the heels of Geoge Washington University Constitutional Law Professor, Jonathan Turley, who wisely noted, "Anyone who believes there are two parties in Washington DC is a fool."

Yep....turn off the Teevee, burn those newspapers and magazines and click on the Net for a small taste of reality. But don't eat too much too fast. Pace yourself. Sample the wares or the many and varied sources. The flavor of TRUTH will come through and you'll discard all those nutrition-less e-snacks.

Good article Les, keep it up.
