Bank Bailouts and Conservative Separation’s from the Commons

THE COMMONS, CAPITALISM and Tag Baiting Community as Socialism, as we always support and bail out the super rich with taxpayers dollars.

…or dividing the whole world by cutting up human consciousness of the Whole.  Then we do not know what we are missing.

But first let’s start with the fracturing of so called conservatism.

It was an astonishing critique conservative George Will delivered about John McCain, but coming from a classic conservative apologist, how much can it be worth?

He did mention Obama’s lack of certain experience as being an arguable negative. In which case, Sarah Palin is mind numbingly unfit for the presidency, a vice presidents possible stand in job. The more we hear of her vindictiveness, and switched positions she does not own up to, the more it seems we could take one giant step downward further into an abyss by letting these two into office.

Listening to the two speak is an exercise in eating baloney filled platitudes, glossed with a fluff of critical thinking impairment...just don’t check on what we are saying Thanks! These two bring new meaning to the Wizard Of Oz directions to not look behind the curtain. They have spoken; their past is opposed to their present, sometimes in the same day, please do not check… Look here; we are smiling and talking down to you like children. Who has the chalk? The eraser?


I’m glad there are some conservatives stepping off the snake oil false front socialist bandwagon usually rolled out to define liberals… Tax and spend. When oddly, as in Iraq, who is being taxed for that oil industry “bailout” gone bad? Who is taxed at the pump and now into the future? Who is truthfully supporting our troops, who must follow direction no matter how recklessly conceived in Washington? Mr. Will’s critique was more on the character traits making one unfit for the presidency, not standard societal notions embraced in the left vs right.

Since conservatives are known for never accepting any responsibility for their actions, just wait and see, economic instability too, will somewhere be configured to be the poor’s fault. It will be those poor who bail us all out. Diverting attention can be certain politicians only real world “principle”. Values, morals, defense, you name it; these leash tags seduce the naive, then exploiters milk the commons* for all they can get. That is the glory of socialism for the few. I have seen this come down this way my whole life.


Inflation is a kind of flat tax that is geared to make the poor pay more. For instance, until quite recently, the minimum wage nearly lost half of its value over the years, yet conservatives were against raising it. We might pose some other reasons, such as to force the poor into two or three jobs, but even that begs this point; holding the poors income down lets their intrinsic value be taken up by the well off. Thus increasing their incomes and the whole “how good am I” lifestyle that seems endemic to wealth’s materialist gluttony.

This balance sheet remains; those who can be taken advantage of, are, cover is given with often emotionalized rationalizations, then the exploiters make out with the cash difference. In some respects, they make out more than we do from robotizing as well, since society essentially takes the bill for the purchase of a robot by any company (including human job loss). I can see why exploiters loves that kind of socialism for the few stealthily called achievement capitalism. The rich enough get the high view on the coast by standing upon a pyramid of the disadvantaged, who they need to be stressed! You millionaires are not scrubbing your toilet most likely, or replacing your roof with your own hands.


Americans seem unready or unwilling to see the stock markets as their and the worlds wealthy individuals own form of socialist organization. To each according to their ability to invest. Money does not actually grow on trees, however, someone somewhere is shortchanged to make stocks profitable. The “Ownership Culture” is just a way of redistributing money mostly from the poor to the much wealthier, or those hoping to be so.

For these “owners” who skim off the commons endowments, the glories of capitalism’s entrepreneurial spirit, and “making it” from the bottom up, are fairytale ego padding rationalizations designed to ignore the realities of those exploited. Simple as that. You don’t like success, but would rather reward failure? How convenient contempt for the commons becomes. Notice how the right wing is a contempt of others conveyor belt. They must seed emotional bias to medicate their own psyche’s illness of the soul. Yet it seems operationally, that many Americans prefer the bliss of ignorance over the mantel of responsibility and accountability.

China is sweating for our cheaper TV’s and just about everything else. Where would we be without economic slavery pinning lives down so those in advantaged nations can pick their pockets? It’s just the way things are. There’s nothing wrong with making money! From drugs? No! From crime? No! From exploitation? Ah? What exactly do you mean by that?

Most Americans can not tell this socialist like scheme for the few, since they were indoctrinate with it. It is fun to put $100. or multiples thereof and receive $120. back. All while no one says thief! That is a “free market” socialist holdup many individuals opportunistically validate as being just and decent. Then with a host of conservative self pandering conceptions that value human life anything but equally, all is well in teh reverse reality world of the cognitively dissonant.

One reason the wealth’s socialism calls the notion of a connected world reality, or commons, a socialist notion. They cut their spiritual umbilical cord to the whole, then insert grand abstractions and ego grandeur as its replacement. Unfortunately, that joke is not just on them. Since the world is whole, we all pay for anyone’s contempt for life.

Conservatives have a detached sense of creation that serves separation and alienation. They create this view by landscaping the culture to their self advantage. That pruning proves to them the validity of their own separatist imposition on the whole in perception. They see their knife cuts on the commons as Creations evidence for themselves and their alienated viewpoints. We all suffer under their illusions put upon our common world, for they are detached from their acknowledgement of responsibility for something they have blinded themselves to.


Corporatist, which many corporations seem to be by favoring corporate rights over the real individuals, hope to divide and conquer the very ground we walk on and the air we breathe. In many ways, “possession consciousness” not only “free’s” the individual to acquire what they can get away with, it guarantees a serious separatist bent in philosophical cosmology regarding the perception of the nature of life and being itself.

Investors, since they in effect drive prices up, they guarantee their endowments while the poor and working class types pick up the actual tab. That “reward” does not issue from a labor vacuum. Someone else must work and be underpaid to produce an overflow of profit to spread around. Guess who is against raising minimum wage? Not to mention health insurance to keep oneself and their family safe amidst skyrocketing health care cost.

Too bad. Life is not fair. Why it’s those kids fault that they were not born to a wealthy family. They can get out of poverty shortly by joining the military. Now for those ethical lunch tax deductions. Nice that the struggling poor cannot wright theirs off as well. That would be rewarding hard work! No paid lunch time for you! I’m not running a socialist enterprise here! Or are you?

Exactly why they need to seduce those other than the big haves, to indoctrinate predatory separatist individualist ideology into the “masses”–We’re all on our own. We’re equal that way! It is best to have your natural opposition (those you exploit) do the actual fighting for your cause! How equal is that! That pyramid scheme users find a way to exploit and get those manipulated to go along, never ceases to amaze me.


Notice the gall in which so many conservative leaders make their divide and conquer claims. Precisely why they are the group of self deluded hubris and the refuge of scoundrels, cover realities by projecting ad-hominem loaded ideological contempt. Frame that as patriotic. Wonder why those right wing talking heads are often so demeaning towards the poor, then rail when an alleged liberal gets one negative emotion out. Ooh, we can see you are having a problem! Now there is one unhappy camper.

Nothing a suit, tie and a strict self confident tone cannot correct enough to fool the fool-able. Check out Cheney, or Mr Will for that matter. This confidence trick of strict style is a hallmark device of many a charlatan, who need not own what they promise, from their one way or the highway ideologies. Yet just like the ‘He has WMD’ claim, they have no problem promising with no truthful evidence whatsoever.

Conservatives need to talk down to people in order to assuage their own dubious and compromised self esteem. There are whole classes of folks ready and willing to have their egos “gain” by moralizing over others. That is quite how liberal became a “bad word”, and a buzz word for all ills real or imagined. Projection of ones inner dementia’s finds ready targets of externalization as cheep instant self medication.

Those who opportunist exploit overseas ( an they love this barrel they have the American people over), they claim is done in our name, thus automatically corporatism is called our national interest. That blurred kind of citizen assigned assessment of intentions is itself a moral crime in a democracy. Much foreign policy is a collective outworking of self serving projections of us and them ideological insanity.

Countries finding our arrogant leadership, corralled into imperialism by philandering corporate panderers, is no surprise to them. Been that way for decades. It is all about getting resources as cheep as possible from others by hook or by crook, to keep your home “stable” at the expense of the worlds households. What could be wrong with that? Don’t you support America? …And controlling the anaesthetised American public is as easy as pie, or even a deceptive invasion of a sovereign nation.

What part of profit do I not understand as “our vital national interest”? Yet I must admit, hearing George Will give a somewhat accurate review of McCain, gives me hope that sometimes, at least, conservatives might be able to come to their senses and do the right thing, not the ideologically impaired one.

George Will thinks McCain isn’t ready to be president

Note particularly the paragraph in which Will talks about McCain’s “impulsive, Channeling his inner Queen of Hearts, John McCain furiously,

* The commons is actually everything; the and land, the water, the air, and not just obvious things like Intestate highways or national parks. Yet, guess who denies global warming until they themselves begin sweating, or claim pollution is not really their problem since everybody does it, or by purchase, “ask for it”. We all then, pick up the damage tax, whether it is called tax and spend, or profit increases when accountability is enforced. As I stated; conservatives alway attempt to deny responsibility or accountability. Their pathological avoidance it is in their ideological blood.

More on the commons below.

Tragedy of the commons – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Tragedy of the Commons is the title of an influential article written by Garrett Hardin, first published in the journal Science in 1968.


The desperate offenses are in operation.

It seems ever more apparent that Hillary Clinton and John McCain are the two candidates of status quo permanency. Sure, oligarchies prefer the easily manipulated ones to the right, it is their bread and butter, but the moderate types of leaders are bought off fairly easily themselves.

It is astounding to compare the intellectual and emotional maturity of most liberals over conservatives.  (Did you watch the debates? Fear and taxes, vs intelligent strategies to work on our problems, exceptions noted.) It is not a condition of elitist intellectual left wing brain washing, that the more education one has, the more liberal one tends to be. It is more likely the philosophical and cosmological perspective that human beings are often more nuanced and complicated than simple jingoistic or buzz word slogans, and life is made up of all of us like it or not.

An incredible attempt has been executed to bias open-mindedness and attention to all details of life as liberal bias, and conservo-corporate market theocracy as the simple truth that has been denied to you.  Simple circular reasoning now makes it easy to have irrefutable positions on complex issues, because critical thought and questioning is not allowed inwards!

Checking oneself before throwing the first stone, or the Golden Rule, requires introspection and reality checking, things the current trend in conservatism seems to despise on the local and world scene. Tax and spend, pro-life, family values, a manufactured culture wars loaded with a “good” based arsenal, acts as a simple cult like circular reasoning cut off assumptions, a firewall to much more profound or in depth attempts at understanding. This results in a problematic dysfunctional state of affairs continuing its deceptive service to provide control issues by force to society, and blind many to wedge issue salt thrown into the eyes of reason.

What is there to understand when it is us against them?

Both parties representatives of economic domination, and more practical affluent elites, have to settle for what they are left with this campaign season. Barack Obama has his relative unknowns, but it now seems he is the most centered candidate on changing the relationships in the nation for the better and not the same old sinking American ship dream=crumbling infrastructures, outsourcing of jobs, downsizing of ambitions to servitude positions, money going to war mongering profiteers with its least return on the dollar, not to mention, magnification of outer hostility towards the US.

Anything Obama now says that can seem to suggest a view of us and them from his perspective, is cut up and diced until it has the sour flavor societies elites hope it will leave in public perception. We are back to the usual strategies of fears and unknowns being the guides to decision making, no mater how truthful or backed up by any facts the perceptions are. Ad hominem suggestions running round the right wing echo chamber, take on the illusory appearance of conventional or consensus wisdom.


Normally the right of center interest control enough of the information sources to place conservatism as the “sensible” way out of your fears of their self perpetuating dysfunctions. Two counter trends have impacted that perception; the contempt for the common woman-man endemic to the top designers of the right has been exposed somewhat. Despite attempts to blur or bury the fact that the poor and residual middle class actually take care of and make most of the country, and defend it. Hiding returning caskets, and keeping most Americans actual economic worries off the media radar most of the time, still the perception of one party more for the rich and privileged than the other has come through.

Overt attempts to bury democracy by denying voters abilities to vote and eliminating ballot trails, allowing for a fake democracy to seem real, remains not addressed by main media sources, again, most of the time. The Internet has cracked that barrier a bit, so it will have to be reigned in sooner or late by oligarchical power sources. Best current vehicles expected to crash the WWW. barrier will be sex exploitation from some angle, or terror threats as excuse to stifle dissenting opinions or personalities.

Will the city of freedoms ring become its undoing?

If what is so far alleged as a liberal Main Stream Media becomes a truth, the stranglehold around freedom will continue to stifle the bells call to responsibility and self determination. Instead, true, everyone does better under Democrats; from rich to poor, but the machinery of societal hierarchical permanence continues unabated under their reign. The poor being the expendable and downcast sacrificial lambs over any of the wealthiest concerns.

This happens while an echo chamber has been constructed in the nation media to perceive the poor as being deserving of their conditions from some called religious leaders, to those who breed contempt for the poor as a Darwinian like imperative. Out of sight and of mind is the reality that, under the socialism for the rich system we now have, the poor are needed to do the dirty work and receive blame for the nations ills they are placed so near to.

With certain candidates of profound change for the betterment of our nation gone, it seems Barack Obama is perhaps not the best hope, but likely the last. He is also going to be the recipient of overwhelming deceptive tactics, and the legions of hired sycophants who do well off the service and toil of hard working Americans, military and civilian alike. There are always the Benedict Arnold’s who will position themselves as the voices of sanity, reason, but hidden antidemocratic agenda’s, that is the nature of the infection democracy has. Once the individuals identity interest are pivoted to fear, any ideology of release or escape to “our” tribes ways seems appealing.

Politics, as convoluted as they are, remain attempts to define individual identities by appealing to apparent need and desires. When the desires are made to be as certain as black or white by fear, us and them, the hope is that you or I will have an easy decision to make. But one needs to think twice about alleged clarity’s of definition.

Where will us against them actually lead me? What is the greater good and greater interest? How can my interest at home actually be cut off from that of the entire planets? Can I then contain compromise, ambiguity, empathy, compassion, non-final answers, as stepping stones toward that greater good?


If democracy and its implied collective individual leadership of nations is to survive, it must defeat the disease it has acquired by the same power interest that always attempt to act as gods above the common people who vote, or slave. We need to perceive their abilities to manipulate society and counteract them with assertions of the rights of all individuals to have a say on all aspects of life. This implies a mandate to fair and transparent elections. It implies a mandate to provide the individual with all sides of issues and questions of state. It mandates a clarity to freedom and responsibility, now inhibited by the elites who control access to the above assertions.

Democracy is the antithesis of the emergent transnational corporate hegemony. Darwinian social predations is not served by populations informed and held accountable to the worlds state of affairs. In this deceptive climate change, who will it be that continues to act as the caged monkeys to the master race?


Being involved with family violence control puts me in an odd situation.

I have avoided physical fighting my whole life. Childhood became the most significant influence on this. My father had told me, and I took it as holy law, that you as a guy, do not strike women. I cannot say that my older sisters and I did not have shoving matches, but for me that would have been self defense. Our family dynamics was heavy on the mental sparing which can seem actually more devastating.

The physical violence in our house was later done, after my mothers death, by a step mother-guardian. She would not hesitate to hit, throw objects and threaten with knives. She sent my father to the hospital with a big gash across his forehead. I slept with the largest kitchen knife under my pillow as a self defense plan for a knife attack while I was asleep. She had hit me in the face while I was asleep, then locked me out in the snow in my pajamas. My father committed suicide not long after that.

Earlier I had incidences when someone seemed to be threatening my life as a freshman high school. I was literally about 100 lbs. and someone morbidly obese around 500 lbs, held me under water to near drowning during pool time in a crowded pool. He had done this more than once. It became so serious to me (swallowing-inhaling watter) that I thought I would have to take matters into my own hands. One more time, and I was going to put him in a headlock with my legs around his neck and hold him under until it meant something. I was a totally inhibited kid and did not trust authority to do anything but blame the victim. So I had to weigh in my mind, possibly causing someones death and being called and treated as a murderer.

As it turned out, he never did that again. But I was sure it would have been me to blame and I would have felt I had no options in my own self defense. No one seemed to notice him doing this during the pool commotion, so I believed no one would accept my story. It just never came through to experience. In physical confrontations during boyhood, I found I had to keep the potential for rage out of me, especially since I had no doubt that I would take down someone twice my size. It took someone quite a bit larger and older to overcome me. I was afraid of my rage and how if unleashed it would seem out of my control.

(As evidence that I am not just delusional about this strength proclamation. When it rained a lot during physical education, outdoor activities were called off and we were put into the gym, we freshmen and the sophomores, to have a thing called “bombardment”. This is where there are two sides chosen, a line across the middle of the gym, where the two sides throw rubber balls a little smaller than a soccer ball at each other. Out of about 150 students divided in two, little me was one of the last picked, last or second to last.

Well the first game I discovered that being in the lower 10% in size had me a bit afraid, so I hung back as many did. All it took was the guy next to you ducking and a ball out of nowhere taking you out, while leaving a big red mark somewhere. I decided to risk all and take it to the line next game.

You could see most of what was being thrown up front. I found out I could catch any-ones ball thrown at me, but no-one could hold onto mine. I was also very accurate. I won that game. The last guy standing. I was picked second of all players next game. The team first picking, picked his seeming best friend first, so I was first on the other team picked. The next game was the last. It oddly ended up being me the last standing on my team, and a very out of shape guy hiding and dodging in the corner on the other side when the period ran out. I could no longer throw fast enough to eliminate time for him to move. That is how little old me was as a skinny five feet two.)


What I just said I cannot say to someone involved in family violence. As far as physical violence goes, I do not hit women. I have told ones who gave me any actual physical provocation that, “If you do that again, we are over!” I do not tolerate fighting, especially in the home relationships. I try to avoid physical confrontations with anyone. Now that I am a “senior citizen” I find you are not seen as a threat overall, or there is a kind of automatic respect. Most of that sense of being on guard is much diminished now. I take peace as my way and it path is most often open.

I have found that emotional abuse has prove a bit more difficult to not take part in, compared to a sense of law that one just never does such a thing. I grew up that way, making fun of someones mistake or being ridiculed. It is then a model of behavior I have had to contain and reverse. To do that requires a will and an understanding of the Golden Rule or Categorical Imperative. I need to establish the sense that not only does “what goes around comes around.”, but it is already damaging my life. Abusing others in any way is profoundly self abuse.

I need to see (learn to recognize) when I am treating another like I would not wish to be treated, and immediately review what my self respect or control problem really is. We are often given the information from another that we are on some kind of attack and they becoming defensive, or initiating their own retaliations.

Still, when expressing guidance to someone, it will often fall flat if it is preached or describes as something I am so above, and can’t understand how someone could do such a thing. That fits as a key with very few dysfunctional programs. I have to speak out of and through my own life, the love in your heart has to be in it, to be a gift expected to have a chance at being received.


In some ways I have described political tactics and ways of manipulation. All manipulation is in some way an abuse of the truth. Its vibrational disturbance will not go unnoticed, except perhaps, by like minded dysfunction. The same situations and rationalizations that come to effect home life are used in the greater life of our world. Even if everyone does it, doesn’t make it right.

We will find manipulative arguments covered if various guises meant to hide their intention, and instead, be represented as your own interest. Fear and insecurity are great hiding places for manipulative interest. Optimistic vision can also be used as a trick to catch someones interest, then later prove to have been a ruse. We need to be both critically minded on the one hand, and have our heart held out open in the other. True adults can do this.

The upcoming election seems to be being based on fear and insecurity vs. hope and optimism, both of these being held as paramount in differing ways by the candidates. I am not saying that we are not justified in having these inclinations. What I am encouraging is the “true believers” and the doubtful to have their wits about them. As citizens and voters, it is up to us to determine the fact from fiction, the hidden agendas from the promises of safety and security. For power will seek to inject its corruptions into all areas of life if let be.

We each are freedom, love, and truths best and last hopes. Better to stand with understanding under their tall light, than the ignorance that festers in the shadows of misunderstanding.


{As during the Civil War, our nation is under an attack from within, but who is the adversary? And will it be the haunting of the ghost of heroic fallen Americans that drives them from their predatory feeding grounds? If only fantasy’s were true.}

(“I am not a crook!”) SINCE NIXON, the rise of stupid think builds a tower to heaven.

I am thinking of taking conservative out of my tags. No, not particularly upset from a challenge, but getting tired of out of context idiocy being pushed around as wisdom, let alone patriotism.

I’m not linking to the post out of good taste, I am not including a trip into the mind melted mud pit. The conservatives I speak of are so brainwashed (stripped clean of nuance, ambiguity or honest introspection’s) and heart impaired, they would only see in my words, a porcupines barbed arrows quill stoke of ignorance, to even consider anything valid of mine held in their views reality. Or so I assume, may I be wrong in that.

I feel sorry for people who say things like, as I paraphrase; ‘McCain is out meeting world leaders, the Dems. are arguing, so not being presidential, equals, McCain knows how to meet leaders and be presidential.’ Context down and out for the count!

Holy Crap!

One campaign is over currently, for all intents and purposes known, another not quite until someone says uncle, or hangs on even if damage continues to add up. Kinda like the last presidential 7 years. Then, so by right wing standards; even the Dems. are being presidential, a decider who never owns up to correction, right?

When you’ve been wrong all along, while many thousands of lives have vanished, and many, many more are devastated, and your campaign is more of the same. But oops you forgot who is who and who is doing what and if the talking points of old are still, if ever were true. After all that betrayal of honesty, forthrightness and lives, and freedoms most basic premise, that truth be our guide, not doing that honest work is doing the work of the president? Correct answer!

Good enough for some.

And we wonder how we got here!



Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.

~George Orwell


Here is something to add into the mix.

Probably, if you are an allegedly average citizen, most all your news will be coming from companies that are for imperial ambitions, owned by just a few. Frankly, they want the money to sustain their lifestyle at everyone and everythings expense, (especially discarding factual context grounded in an objective attempt at reading history), the same as many other imperialist dependent Americans, or any of humankind’s other imperialist now, or of history.

Their cognitive dissonance is that easily traced. So any old reason will suffice for being the case in that skewed or spun context; suitably presidential. If reality be made up then, of deception and diversion, then so be it. It is about what works in grandios theory and not what is truth. Here then, is the means of creation of the manipulative arts and sciences of Orwellian doublespeak.

They don’t mind deceiving to get you to be fearful enough to sacrifice reason for ad hominem fear sown security blankets. They want you to become a vultures best friend. A scared and half decaying status quo monkey, critical thinking ability impaired, rotting rights to be picked off, useless and consumed for fears command. You need to be a cowards errand boy or girl. It is easy to lead the blinded by fear, especially the blinded and thought impaired by poisonous delusions of right, who only admit wrong as coming form not being “hard” enough. This observation comes from well over half a century of conservative self grandeur thrown constantly in front of my own life to walk over to get to honest reason and truthful analysis.

If you are suckered into might makes right, too bad how wrong you can be, yet will never own up to it. Instead, you seek out like minded and heart twisted conformist to bond to an illusions base of separation and alienation. Denial and blame are constant conservative companions, their right and other right hand. We live in their constant exhaust, which they have come to call the truth; “just check the facts! No not those ones! These!”, all conveniently laid out with emotional wind vanes attached to nearly every phase.

It is a known fact; that repeat a lie long enough, it will appear as the truth, and remain so generally, even when proved to be false. And may I add; the lied to, bonded by identity to the deception, will carry out crusades to expose their now opponents seeming callus disregard for the facts. All done with no further attempts to understand nor justify actions by a review of objective realities beyond ideological borders. They will write emotional songs and pleas of honor and glory endowed by the abstractions that now only they believe they care-take.


To think of the travesty of all the propaganda and jingoist patriotism the right wing feels all superior about. And worse still, how the young, faithful and aspiring are so easily seduced by biased sources at home or in the compromised medias of society. It won’t pay the bills of the growing ranks of the poor. It is poor comfort to the tens of thousands of families now touched by the damage to their own blood kin by the fight to control oil reserves, now blatantly suggested as cause enough for the taking. (Our economy or corporations access to resourses=nations vital interest.)

To those who faithfully serve our country, we can be proud of them all, no mater how mislead and deceived our nations defenders are often kept. But our freedoms stand even taller, for those who speak the truth to power as they say, as so many of the brave returned and maimed have had the courage to come to grips with the factual context they had been put in. They are heroes twice, compared to the stealthy mud of the propaganda machinations of defensive pro active defense=offense, still maintained by some as a just and honorable cause. Even under the false label of guilt put upon them, they speak as free women and men, because the hold a Cause Higher than so called loyalty’s to propaganda instead of truth.

To these who dare to step up to a Higher Cause even amid the accusations and ill will directed toward them from the mind blanked conformist and indoctrinated, who are kept too afraid to speak truth for themselves, or form a contrapuntal question. To these who risk it all again after having answered the call to serve us, still to rise in risk to serve us again, either in battle or to stop the never ending rationalizations for more war as good. To these our nation is forever in debt, but not as a nation of bent over sycophants and rights inhibited shivering go alongs, but as proud Americans. Proud to still, for a while, speak their truth before being hauled away to internment camps, authoritarians are always holding as a co-opting veil over freedoms real face, the one in your mirror.

While the next “conservative”smirking one (who was then being presidential by the post referred to definition?) chants an old tune to; bomb, bomb, bomb, Iran, as if it were another insultingly inhuman joke expected from right wing country clubs and gathering hole think in knots tanks. His pandering to the most callus and convoluted opportunist among us is surely the quality we have come to know in being presidential. And that itself, is what may well be causing what is wrong with America to its very core.

When making war and its carnage is material for humor, someone is pandering to the astoundingly inhuman monstrosity in someones dysfunctional state of being.

When pushing lethal buttons, joking about looking under chairs for WMD, singing little tunes about bombing our fellow humans; where kids, mothers and fathers not even for a war cast on them, will be maimed, aborted, tortured with deformities, and missing family for the rest of their lives, while all breeding more hate and resentment to us the victims to be. When this is the kind of leadership some seemingly worship as the saviors of what is good in America. I know in whose hearts the terrorist have already won. And whose soul will be covered in blackness for a few coins of gold.

I can see why they want to hide from the flag draped caskets of the fallen they keep from our sight. I can see why they hide the truth, with blood stained out of context facts, of who was the threat to us and how the ball has been so horribly dropped with corruption, gross negligence and incompetence. I can see after being seemingly constantly wrong, their loyal foot-soldiering sycophants of conservatism, lacking of conscience and connection to humanity itself, wed and thread wrongness to their very cause. Calling poison purity, and madness, sanity.


I give thanks to the American founders, that the freedoms degenerating under our very watch, were once intended to not perish from this earth. They knew not the danger within would organize to disown the founding vision, until a Civil War was fought and won. That the public is increasingly now held knee deep in deception, and questioning, how being free of thought and mind, would be called aiding the enemy:

That attacking sovereign nations without proof of cause, which they founders abhorred as anti the American Spirit, would be, with the failed fourth estate, let to stand as honor, adorned with parties and joke filled toast and good times, titles and decoration. That the nation of conformity that has emerged, cannot even know what is or is not torture, nor if torture is dishonorable, defensive or breeding of more of the same to be turned upon itself.


The founders would, if they could, scratch out of coffins. Overturn gravestones, march as dust risen into bodies of the memories of noble and true deed in the name of independence, storm as a front to Congress and the White House. Joining them would be those who died for freedom; the nearly countless hero’s who could not pass on their heroic nature to the nation due to war itself. These would raise the rust off of bayonets. Throng the institutions of power to out the chicken hawks and corporate stuffed wig socks all white and clean in white washed corruption. Driving out those filled in pomp and propaganda, bleaching out the constitution for one more penny.

The bellicose enablers of the new emerging tyranny would scrabble down the hollowed steps to their waiting limos. For these whole classes of leaders with nary a one with child on any front line, these would spirit away with their shame running even in front of them, and their legions of conservative fawning fear mongers, and sell outs of responsibility and accountability. To their fearful provided estate hideaways, protected by guards and the states own defense they have stolen.

The gray and the blue fallen would join hands, march through hotel halls and plush suburban enclaves. They would pass through the walls themselves, to herd the lobbyist(*) and other sell outs of democracy for coin. Perhaps they would raise up the ships of fallen heroes, to pack the golden calf worshiping cattle off to colonies where these predators and opportunist could feed off themselves, to come to understand the vile alienation’s of their nature, hidden behind flags and forsaken sacred books, as if those would ward off the karmic justice already eating away at their souls, by being aiders and abettors of separation from the Love of all Life. What goes around will indeed come around.

The very thought that joking about death, war and torture and the reasons for same, are now “presidential” is tantamount to calling a golden calf God; and tears, a crown of thorns and a spear to the side, a good sign for buying stocks in a good fall harvest.



*Those bidding for special privilege and access to the commons for their own profit.


It is usually called patriotism.

It can be flag waving, lots of flags everywhere, Nazis and communist do that to. It is usually some test of abstraction to determine in the abstract, if you are for those promoting the abstraction from their own angle, or against it. Against it in their definition equates with I, or you being opposite that abstraction; say freedom. To be against it equals something akin to being a traitor, seditious, or ungrateful to the place where that abstraction abides in the testers mind and intentions. But is implied to pertain to everyone as such! No other views about it. You then become the target of loathing and a parade of persecution, if it can be taken (manipulated, construed) that you implied differently than the framed parameters of one groups definition of an abstraction.


It happened to the Jews is Nazi Germany. A cult takes over that many thought was just a fringe movement. Then it puts up its own purity test, then targets those unwilling or unable to pass (nose size?), for the test was meant to rid the nation of those who look or think differently. The abstraction, the Grand Good Thing, has become a vehicle of subjective bias into minds who support good things, perhaps unknowing that that goodness has been altered to be unconcerned with much objective perception.

It is alleged that Jesus Christ faced this same scrutiny from status quo conservative interest at the time called the Scribes and Pharisees. They questioned him in his allegiance to their own sides view of noble cause, as if that were the only cause of confirmed truth. Why did He hang around with the unwashed poor, the sinners and outcast of society? Why is it that He finds value there and not with the distinguished citizens and interest of the status quo’s conceptually pinned down paradigm? (power interest know where their own interest lay) In the end; So you think you are a king? Well we agree. Here is your bloody crown then. The dominator sycophants cheer.


Terror and mystification are routinely applied across history, for entitled minority interest to control the whole of the public. It may be hidden behind law, it is the safest place to hide self serving deceptions, there and in religio-spiritual interpretation, that leaves the target audience, fearful and contained in a dominator paradigm. Questioning it framed as consorting will ill or evil cause.

Conservative interest usually are the originator of these test, but any totalitarian interest would promulgate them into the culture. I’m sure that men who wanted women to vote were considered, effeminate or emasculated. Whites who stood up for blacks as equals under God and the Nations founding intention, where considered enemies of their own people by, yep, fear based insecurity driven conservative interest.

We now have money as symbolic power of the beholders, all that makes someone “big” someone of substance and influence automatically, and religio-spiritual charlatans, also usually very wealthy in the background. these “naturally” come to see both corporate interest and church interest as primary, against the will of the many, by assuming they have the right to control and manipulate the population, because money and position allows them access to.

Some conservatives of the Constitution, The Bill of Rights and even the Bible, actually stood up for the rights of Blacks and Woman as human beings, deserving the same treatment under the law. These would have been called names such as “blank” lovers. Plus much else of the vile and vitriol that these kinds of demonizers spend so much of their consciousness roiling in, for their own spiritually self punitive reasons.


Watering down the abstract conceptual purity of a status quo, the entitled have’s, or otherwise oligarchies interest, produces in them defensive fear. In that sense then, only what is good for them is to be held good by you, the dependent on them public. An abstraction, a symbol, then can stand in as your sub-servitude to a dominator’s point of view. Those fawning and wanting respect from the “big” to rub off onto their own lives, must then scurry out to test the population.

Now you are in the intended place; subjected to propaganda disguised as emotionalized fact, and guided by implied fear and terror into conforming to the elites interest mindset. The implied high minded and holier than thou symbol, now used as a club, on freedom, self responsibility, and full expression of the self into life; life as it is in its wholeness of reality, had potentiated in you. A subjective interest can masquerade as the interest of all. The followers are in the objective sense, slaves to both fear and terror. Loyal and patriotic pawns of special interest.


The attacks on the very nature of freedom and responsibility often spew from the mouths who claim to represent just those things. Cults who attempt to control consensus reality and personal identity of all followers, need to see themselves differently from the whole population, yet hold that whole of society up to their myopic standard. Here is where the test of some symbol often is used as a wedge to use fear as the threat to conform, or else. We are seeing these test show up from the right wing as they usually do at election times.

Usually flag burning, or the pledge of allegiance, come around as a fake test of patriotism. Once, not so long ago, it was long hair and bell-bottom pants hippies. They are used as wedge against alleged liberal indifference or antagonism towards the notion the conservatives hold as abstractly sacred, but which they maintain as reality check impaired.


I have read post on this site host, where not wearing a pin, or not putting your hand over your heart, shows you are in essence, one of the enemy, or minimally a bad guy or gal at heart. What a pile of deception.

Firstly, knowing politics, I would trust a photo as being taken out of context, just as many words are used in context of false association and comparison. But even more importantly, where was it ever said that you were to act like a robot to be certified perfect? The pledge of allegiance was originally written, not so long ago historically, by a socialist. I can understand at that time the Utopian dream that suddenly, all would fall into line into a beautiful society of equals who’s symbol would be used as a collective hammer to mold the group into a loving cohesive whole; an abstract pledge. A whole of act a-likes, unable and afraid to stand out. Cowering in a bonding psyche stranglehold of a mass action, afraid to stand up for their own allegiance to truth, God and nation. Instead of to one groups self serving interpretation of it.

That kind of leftist Utopian conservatism hybrid was a made to order weapon on the right. Adjust a word, later, throw in God, and now everyone acting alike would be alike. (conservatives primarily separation motivated delusion that appearance and behavior actually demonstrates union) It is peer pressure and threat of ostracism of the non conformist, (ancient tactics of shame) codified in the song, the salute, the seig heil, the flag, whatever the symbol of conformity is, even a cross of execution. It may be fine until it is used as a test of loyalty, for then we have left the realms of truth, justice or honesty, and entered the convoluted matrix of power and control. It is freedom of thought and being the abstraction throwers hate. It is free thought that is their nemesis.


Why would they fear the individuals own test of truth over the imposed collectivist one? It seems to oppose the favored conditions they associate in their psyche with the symbol, that seems to place them above the worlds of “others”. Others whose identity is now molded into a duck in a fear based shooting gallery.

Many a libertarian opposes the left and the right for these very status quo attempts to control their own unique nature. In that, I see the founding’s of the libertarian fears. Remember the “Dixie Chicks” (country music group of three woman) just telling their own feelings to other human beings, was seen as betrayal, because it did not pander to power.

It is now an implied betrayal amongst these kinds of conservatives, to tell the truth of your feelings to others. George Orwell would be shocked at how fast and furiously, freedom is stabbed in the back in the name of freedom, and all because of not conforming to a machine like mindset, too timid and ashamed or shivering to speak your own truth. Land of the free and home of the brave indeed.



I started writing this post when I heard that right wingers, (conservatives, certain kinds of conservatives, whatever one wished to tag the fear merchants with,) when these people let up an uproar when one Black presidential candidates Black wife said; “People in this country are ready for change and hungry for a different kind of politics and … for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.” As I often say, context is everything, it can even make a word seem its opposite when it is taken out of context.

Whatever kinds of conservatives these were, they were shocked and appalled that this meant she had no pride in her country until her husband was a top candidate. What an insult to the nation it was, implying there was nothing for her to be proud of until her interest somehow is benefiting from how America is. The context was about her own view of hope from her conditional to subjective reference viewpoint! Not theirs!

Well, if you have read my post and pages, you will see how this nation, clothed in some minds in glorious abstraction, actually treats its citizens and those who have served it in battle. Bring that truth up and you are against your country? Or are you telling the truth as you know it, because you love your country, standing up for freedom by applying it! A natural desire to change the nation for the betterment of all, not just elites.


Another candidates allegedly politically savy wife, brought the other woman’s words up as a contrast to her husband who was imprisoned by the enemy while serving his country. In effect this throws one persons past context into an others experience as being some kind of opposite. When in fact there is a large element of apples and oranges in the comparison of historical fact to an off the cuff personal reflection of current hopeful experience. Both are entitled to their feelings are they not? But have we really seen an opposite proved to be true?

Her comment even seems understandably true; why would you not be exceedingly proud to see a barrier that seems to represent oppression in the land of the free broken? Particularly one so personal to your own roots. Seems patriotic to the very core identity of American independence. Cultist hate independence. I doubt if there would be any “fire storm” if the primary “Christian” candidate said he was never so proud of his country since they are embracing Christ via his candidacy?

There might be some rumblings by the left and libertarians, plus constitutionally minded conservatives who know the necessity of church and state separations as independence defenses built into the constitution. I predict in this opinion that these latter ones who bring up questions would be treated as oddities, who are part of the problem of moral decline. Probably would hear much as well, about persecuting a Christian, and why you are against people being proud of their religion and Savior.

Suddenly we would hear all the nuance and ambiguities in handling a candidates unbridled excitement about his religious and soon to be government connections.


When the public is in the position it is now in; left helpless to consolidated corporate media interest; manipulated by ideologically driven “fact” to emotionalized conclusion; left disabled and unwilling to challenge the ruling paradigm due ignorance, societal disconnection and doubt, we are in need of hope as never before.

If superman or superwoman are not dropping in to stand up for truth and justice united as the American Way. It is up to each of us to so stand, uniting the abstractions from the ground up and not the elite down position we are so accustomed to as inevitable.

We The People, as the actual land of the free and home of the brave. Well, that requires each one to act that way does it not? But cowering to some test of political interest and pundits who profit off of promoting divisions to enable elites? Afraid if we hold our hand “right” or where a pin like all the others are? That is the land of the ashamed of freedom and home of the subservient to other human masters, instead of the true One.

People write about their pride and goose bump feelings at large events when the Star Spangled Banner is sung. It is a song made to elicit that kind of response, but en mass, we humans feel part of something infinitely larger. Other countries and groups know of this phenomenon. With the Pledge of Allegiance to start of the day in Catholic school, one just did what one was asked. You could even feel that common purpose from doing a common thing that is directed toward something greater. It is good to feel part of something grand.

But for years I had that same sense even while not knowing the proper wording. I thought it said; and to the Republic where witches stand… That even added more mystery for me. I had heard about the Salem witch trials.

I am always proud of America for its dreams, and its daring to be a home for the individual to live both freely and responsibly. Yet I have no illusions that the old warlord dominator ways are not always trying to retake this land and all lands from the Common One. I have no pride in the attempts of prejudice, to masquerade as honor, nor robot conformity to define freedom.
