First Rant of 2014.

Quandary: To update my iPhone 4S to iOS 7 or NOT. Starting in IOS 6, the valuable CHOICE and ability to restore a previous OS was taken away from Apple Users. But iOS 6 was not much different visually than 5, or 4, or even 3. Then Suddenly Apple puts out an iOS that LOOKS (and acts) like Windows 8 for Phones! And the problem with iOS 7 is the same problem as Windows 8, it WORKS GREAT, but Windows 8 and iOS 7 have the signal honour to be among the UGLIEST OSes in the history of Mankind.

b-b-but – iOS 7 DOES have cool stuff: I can TURN ON Bluetooth and Location services using Siri. Among several other REALLY COOL features.

But – I’ll never again SEE the cool icons, I’ll never ever again SEE, when Kit Johnson txts me while I am working on something, I see the message in the little STRIP banner across the top of my Springboard- And then, it ROTATES OUT as a block in that 3-D animation. In iOS 7, that strip is HUGE, taking up an 8th of the screen, so on an iPhone 4S with the smaller screen, this is not an improvement with the Banner Alerts, which were designed originally to be UNOBTRUSIVE

And then SIRI – over half of my MODS are Siri, I got it rigged so that it responds with Majel Barret-Roddenberry’s Voice because I installed HANDS FREE, which uses her voice to say “Working” and several other phrases, and even after I uninstalled the Mod, her VOICE is still there. So, because of that, my iPhoneOffice has been MORE than personalised, because I have exchanged emails with Majel and I feel I know who she is, I believe she really was a Hippy at heart, and she stayed true to being who she is all through the 60s until her passing. So I feel i have a piece of her, her voice, in my phone and in a ridiculous way I can touch her (And my love of Trek) and she me every time she says “Working…”.

And even GONE is way Siri used to RAISE UP the Springboard to reveal, THAT is where she was Hiding.

But Most Important, I feel that iOS 6 was the LAST iOS to show Steve Job’s REAL Vision for the future of iPhones and Devices – In my mind, it was NEVER Steve Job’s INTENTION to “Go BLAND”

Steve Jobs, was powered by HOW IT LOOKS, and he NEVER would have allowed iOS 7 to be released with shitty graphics as it has now. Steve was all about making it DIFFERENT than Windows, NOT the SAME.

That was why as a long time Windows user, because I was schooled in Intel CPUs and DOS/Windows PCs, using Apple products was a breath of Fresh Air, initially I hated them, but when MACOS came out in the 90′s I realised, this is not like that Mac that Scotty used in “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home”. “A Keyboard, How Quaint” – I actually had one of those in 1996, but I had to sell it, as cool as those were for 1984 – And remember the Ridley Scott Commercial for those? I hated them because Macs were not Terminal Driven like PCs were at the time. Even though, it HAD the terminal Program IN it, but it was the first PERSONAL Computer to use the Sparc Workstation style GUI and make it so that THAT was what you saw when you logged in, instead of:

c:\ PCDOS 1.1>

And even the original WINDOWS was Terminal Driven, until Windows 95, where it was “Like a Mac” but only in that it Booted to a Graphic UI.

And if anyone has ever seen a MACOS boot up in VERBOSE Mode… You will see WHY it was better for all that to be covered by a beautiful image.

In Fact MACOS was highly visual through the 90′s and when OSX and OSX.1 came out, it was all about making the VISUAL experience of MACOS even better than it was with MACOS 7 through 9.2.2. I LOVE 9.2.2, I am still running it in an original iMac – A Blue one. I loved that there was this thing about COLOURs with Mac Products – Especially in the OSes. But after the original coloured line of iMacs was done, out came the eMacs, the “White-Only” versions. And finally around 2006 or so came the iMacs with a LCD Monitor rather than the old Radiation-Exuding Cathode Ray Tube.

So, I think iOS 7 – Steve Jobs would be saying NO NO NO and NO! He would have Fired Tim Cook, he would have fired ALL of the designers that worked on it.

But as I say, it’s FAST. But that speed was given to it at the cost of losing ALL of iOS most endearing graphical qualities. And I can say for a fact – Galaxy Users who have Droid 4.4, Droid 4.4 is more like iOS 6 than iOS 7 is- So the Crappy “Googol” OS, gets the Graphical Update, and iOS 7 turns a BLAND 6. iOS is 6 years old this year is it not? Proving that as you get older you do NOT necessarily look better.

MACOSX however, is about 14 years old and it has only had MINOR graphical changes.

So – I am probably going to update – But I’ll do it TOMORROW, because I’ll never see my iPhone the way it is now ever again.

It is like Putting a beloved PET to sleep, so I want to spend ONE more day with her. I was spared that with Ming, because she went and passed away on me, but when I did Spot, it hurt me more than anything ever has in my life.

And I’ll feel the same way, I really am feeling as if an iOS 7 update is a lot like pet “Youth in Asia”.

My First Rant of 2014

Contemplating the Black Oil

What Lies Below

BLACKOIL_1

Part 1: Piper Maru

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0751180/reviews-4

In The X Files, around Season 3 episode 15. a new twist was added to Mulder’s Alien quest. A crew on a French Salvage boat was sent to appropriate a World War II Sub which was allegedly transporting a nuke to Japan, but they find instead a P-51 fighter called the PIPER MARU (Named for Gillian Andersen’s new daughter). A diver named Gauther is infected with a black gooey substance, which is actually nothing but your regular 40-weight Oil, but instead of having Techron added to it, it contained an insidious intelligence. A person infected with this stuff would be a host puppet for this intelligence, which could spew radiation at will, and so it irradiates the rest of the Salvage Crew before the salvage vessel is “rescued” and brought to Long Beach- Which is what it wanted, so it could go to Gauther’s house in San Francisco and find some evidence – Of something.

This stuff can jump from person to person, and it jumps into Gauther’s wife, played here by Kimberly Unger who was in the season 1 episode “Fallen Angel” – But with curly blond hair. Here, she has long brunette tresses, needless to say this actress looked the part of a French Wife. Mrs. Gauther finds her way to Hong Kong. Meanwhile Mulder and Skully are looking into this, Mulder’s track brings him to San Francisco and Gauther’s House as well as to his employer’s office, and he follows a secretary to Hong Kong and finds that she had bought the location of the Sub from Alex Krycek, our favorite Russian Goon who has ties to the yet unnamed “Syndicate” of men who have secrets, one of which is The Cigarette Smoking Man/Cancerman aka CEG Spender also as yet unnamed.

In Hong Kong, the Black Oil jumps into Krycek in the men’s bathroom at the Hong Kong Airport – And informs Mulder he is a “New Man” – What is clearly going on here is a long string of interrelated people, who all think they are using each other: Mulder thinks he can use Krycek to re-acquire his digital tape of Secrets from “Anasazi”, Krycek thinks he can lead Mulder around by his Alien Sniffing nose, etc. In actuality, it is the Black Oil which is organizing this dance. Before the Blood Rises, these episodes bring closure to Skully for her sister Melissa’s death at the hands of one of Krycek’s Assassins, who has also shot Assistant Director Walter Skinner.

Part 2: “Fight the Future,” or, “What Cannot be Programmed, Categorized, or Easily Referenced”

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120902/reviews-312

In between seasons 5 and 6 of The X Files, Chris Carter had done something which no showrunner had thought of previously – He released a Theatrical Feature Film of The X Files. Primarily, this movie deals with the relationship of “The Bees” which had been shown in the Season 3/4 bridging arc “Talitha Cumi”/”Herrenvolk which introduces the Jeremiah Smith “Clone” character who leads Mulder to the place where Bees are being harvested as a delivery system for The Black Oil. This is not explored in those episodes, it is explored in the film, and the exact nature of how the Oil can infect a person and cause a creature to gestate inside of a “Living Human Host” (Sound like Alien?) is shown – But not completely, that arc is finished in the season 6 episode “The Beginning” which takes up right after events from the film. And so a new dimension was added to the lifecycle of Mulder’s Gray Aliens: They begin life as “Purity” which is what the Black Oil is called, they create a new lifeform out of an infected human host, one which is a mindless and vicious killer, and this lifeform sloughs off it’s skin and transforms into the Grey creatures which Mulder always chases. The Mind-Reading Child “Gibson Praise” witnesses this transformation in the series, making him a target for the shape-changingAlien Bounty Hunter played by Brian Thompson.

The last X-Files episode where the Oil makes an appearance is in Season 8’sVienen where a group of people are found that have a natural resistance to The Oil – People of Hispanic/Mayan descent- The Black Oil is killed when it tries to infect people of this kind. To try to keep this secret, the Black Oil takes over the whole crew of an Oil Drilling rig which is planted solidly above a huge undersea Oil field which is ALL BLACK OIL – Which Mulder blows up to keep it from being harvested by an Oil Company, and in doing so he is booted out of the FBI, so he can no longer chase little green men with his shiny badge and gun shouting to the heavens and to anyone who will listen, that “The Fix is In, the Sky is falling, and when it hits it will be the Shitstorm of All time.” –This also gave David Duchovny a means to exit the series gracefully, until finally needed in the season 9 and series Finale The Truth: Parts 1 & 2.”

Part 3: From The X Files to FRINGE, or, “What Lies Below

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1537134/reviews-2

In Boston, Massachusetts, a Bike Messenger approaches the entry to “Vitas Petroleum” and enters with a Bald Dutchman. The man appears normal but soon his nose starts to bleed. He has a fit and falls down dead in the office of this building, his corpse involuntarily spews out some nasty red stuff. It should be noted that two of the employees of Vitas Petroleum are  two very regular X-Files actors, Megan Leitch (Who always played Mulder’s “Grown Up/Clone” Sister Samantha) and Agent Pendrell (Brendan Beiser). Fringe Division is called in to find out why the Dutchman fell over. Meanwhile, Walter Bishop is shown “teaching” some kids at a Museum (But not a Red one) – At first we think this is with the permission of the institution, but in fact he just got up and started teaching them about early world exploration and how people died horrible grisly deaths due to Scurvy during one of Magellan’s first world cruises – Table this for later, it becomes relevant.

When Bishop gets to the gas company, the Bike Messenger is trying to leave, but Walter sees something odd with the kid and prevents him from leaving, and the kid also spews red stuff. Walter calls on Broyles to Quarantine the entire building and everyone in it, which includes Peter and Olivia who are inside.

This is a complete out-of-X Files appearance of The Black Oil, and as the episode goes on, in becomes apparent that THIS IS THE SAME STUFF from The X Files. Found in a drilling sample from 10 miles down/75,000 years old, the sample was infested with a virus right in the Oil sample. As Walter investigates, the Virus shows signs of a hideous and insidious intelligence. It’s goal? Exit the building at all costs. And what best way to do this other than infecting Peter Bishop who shares Walter’s 190 IQ? And Peter almost does it, there is no doubt that he would have died had he gotten outside and spewed, because one the organism is able to get it’s host to do what it wants, it has no further use for it/him/her.

Walter’s solution to this dilemma is not the Russian or Syndicate “Weak Vaccine” which was shown in the X Files series and Feature Film, it is more basic than that – But who is to say that the Weak Vaccine that the “Well Manicured man” from the X Files  had developed was not based on the same thing? It may have been, and in case of Fringe, it was Sulfur, which has been used as an Antibiotic. Mainly, as Walter sees the behavior of this stuff, he is better at finding how to contain it and ultimately kill it. But mostly, in this Fringe episode, it is so that “Peter will not die – Again.” (Meaning, he has already died once?) And in fact we had been shown Peter’s 1985 grave in the season 1 finale.

Regardless of show, the properties of The Black Oil are the same for both. As Fringe Division really did not focus on chasing little green men with a badge and gun like Mulder, they have in fact met an extra-terrestrial in one and only one Fringe episode, the same way that John Doggett and Monica Reyes dealt with Parallel Universes in one and only one X File where they met a man who could walk from one verse into the other the same way Olivia can.

So if you prefer to go with Mulder as he goes after his aliens, either in The X Files or in his Ivan Reitman film “Evolution” or if you like your Parallel Universes Red and Blue like in Fringe, it is always great to find stuff from one of your favorite shown show up in Another, So that maybe in a Green Fringe Universe, Mulder and Skully had offices right down the hall from Agent Dunham.

 

 

 

The two sides of the world

Image

 

On one side of my world, there are politicians, mostly republican, ravening drooling and raving about guns and 2nd amendments: these people (like Michelle Bachmann, she’s just one of many) are almost totally illiterate, not even knowing basic History, Science, Math, or most important, ETHICS.

On the opposing side of my world, I have extreme interest in Filmmakers. Maybe because they create worlds that are better than this piece of shit planet. James Cameron, even though he does like to pirate ideas from the same science fiction books I read as a kid: I can forgive his thefts because he actually constructs something totally new out of it. Plus when I watch documentaries of his work, he is intelligent, well educated, and well grounded in the very things these Bachmann-Style politicians lack. Another guy that fascinates me is Richard Taylor from Weta Workshop: Who talks with this New Zealandish droning, but to hear him discuss his work, you know THIS is a man of high intelligence who grasps not only the most important things in life, but his work ethic matches this quality, everything is well thought out.

So we have these two disparate things: Stupid Politicians and incredibly intelligent Filmmakers. It’s as if I choose to live in a fantasy world cos this one sucks so much.

Image

But since I can’t just beam myself off this crummy planet, or even down to New Zealand where the smarter people seem to congregate, I engulf myself with moovies. It’s the only way I got to escape. Because when I’m not totally absorbed in some great epic story that has a great ending, I’m fighting these pinheads who somehow have gotten elected and have chosen to make life as fucked as possible for everybody who’s not fucking rich. There IS no middle class, not anymore, there is only abject poverty vs people who have WAY more then they’ll ever need, and they sit around naked counting their money, like from the fairy tale about the princess who believed everything she heard: when she heard that her father sat around naked counting his money: she finally didn’t believe what she heard.

This is the reverse of what’s happening in reality though: in reality: The extreme Obama haters come up with all sorts of outlandish tales about our current King: and the more outlandish or unbelievable the stories are, the more the republicans believe them, and start passing these fictions off as fact. There is now more documented conspiracy crap about Obama than books about Jesus. More than any other person on this planet: if there were only one or two conspiracy theories about Obama, maybe that could be believed, because everybody in the world has one or two bad things they did. But the sheer vast BULK of the crap they say about Obama dictates that NONE of it is to be believed, and it cancels out any of it that may even be true: See, crying WOLF to the point the republicans have, has destroyed their credibility FOREVER.

That’s why I must continue fighting these turds for the rest of my life, just to safeguard my RIGHT to engulf myself in my brand of escapism. I’ll enjoy it the most in 2014 when the rest of these tea bastards are voted out.

The Last Battle

In the book “The Last Battle” by CS Lewis, the world of Narnia ends and a “New Narnia” is created. Republicans are in this book, represented by a small band of Dwarfs who have made it into the “New” Narnia, but still believe they are living  in a straw hut in the Old Narnia. Aslan Himself offers them wine in Gold Goblets, but they can only see it as a bucket of Brackish Water. He then lays out a feast of fine food for them, and they can only see a batch of bad turnips.
The Republican Party, and their mouthpiece Faux News, are very much like these Dwarfs. No matter how good it really is outside of their little fiction-bubble, they will never see it – They will only see that their United States is a Straw Hut, and all the fine wine in the world is nothing but Brackish Water to them.

But we really need not worry too much, because they will be pleased to stay in their straw hut, they will not venture out of it, and their numbers will be fewer and fewer each year, especially as more Latinos, Blacks, Gays, Women and Young People enter the Voting Force. Each Election the “Majority” of White Voters becomes a smaller and smaller percentage. By not welcoming a Rainbow Nation, they are only bringing the inevitable death of the Republican Party closer in time.

Fox News: America is ‘the shallowest country in the history of man’

Last Words: Romney’s “Christianity”

This is to all Christians who may be strongly supporting Romney if they should so happen to find this Blog.

Fact is, I was not going to change this. But with only one more day left before our futures are decided, I’m going to have to try to make this clearer.

You love God? You follow Jesus? You read the bible, try to do what it says? Ok. Now how about this:  How many times in the last 4 years has your church preached about God? In fact, does your church still even do that, or are your pulpits now podiums for PUNDITS?

I just want to know, where Jesus commanded that we make it a law that everyone else in the world now must by *law* believe exactly as we believe. Including Jews, Hindus, Muslims and Buddhists? Also, does not The Bible also “command” us to obey our government and RESPECT our leaders?

I just want to know, when Jesus personally commanded you to despise the President, to hate him, and to use foul language when talking about him? And did Jesus also tell you to use insulting language to everyone who does not agree with you, or believe the same way you believe, or, even worse: who believe the same thing but are not voting for the same guy you are voting for?

In other words, did Jesus give you express permission to be as rude, arrogant and insulting as possible, for political reasons? I really want to know this, cos I’ve been through the Bible since I was 16, and I’ve never seen any evidence that I should do these things – Yet, they are being done, and by people who claim to be worshipping God. And why don’t we break that down – Who, Who is God? The first word for God was Elohim, used only in Genesis, meaning a collective of sorts, later he was named YHWH or “I AM” – And His name stays the same up to and through the New Testament. The entire Old Testament and most of the new sets Him apart from MAN, “God is not a man” – Just search that phrase in your Online-Bible. So, regardless of if He was a collective being, in Genesis, to a Singular God (With Three Persons) in The New testament, He is the Same God from the beginning, and has never changed – According to The Bible.

Which brings me to the point I was originally making, I had to back it up with some background first. It is regarding this Presidential Election and the Christians and Right are saying how “We are in Danger of Losing our Judeo Christian heritage” – But in fact, our nation was not designed that way in the first place.  But the bone of my contention is who these Christians are supporting.  And the main thing is this: Their presidential candidate does not worship YHWH, he worships Adam.

I’ve been a Christian for 45 years, and I tell you with all my Heart – Romney is not a Christian and does not support the same values you, or I hold. He most certainly does not worship YHWH and does not set the Son of God in the same place we do. In fact he worships “Adam” (as in Adam and Eve): just google “Mormon Worship of Adam” and watch the documents from the LDS start piling up. And I’m just reminding you of how many bible verses warn us about false prophets, or in this case, Profit? Romney is a false Profit – He really does not care about life, he is just telling you this so you will vote for him. But if you search your heart, you will see, that you should not support him. Now as I have had this statement met with a lot of contention, here it is from Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam–God_doctrine

Hundreds of Thousands of Christians have come to realize this, some of those even Republicans. Why haven’t you? What is this guy promising (or, not really promising but nevertheless keeps hammering at you over and over)? Stopping our country’s policy of offering Medical Care for Women? Is that it? Planned Parenthood? If you are of the type that would try to stop people from entering Planned Parenthood, do you also minister to your friends and neighbors by forcing them to accept your religious and political POVs but then deny then the same right to have theirs, should they differ from yours?

Not all people in this country have FAITH, and the reason that is, is due to people trying to force a moral policy onto others with LAW. Jesus did not come to abolish the law, he came to fulfill it – Meaning WE do not need to burden our friends and neighbors with MORE Laws.

I remember one of my old pastors, Mike Macintosh of Calvary Chapel/Horizon and mentor to Miles of The Rock Church used to say: “Latter Day Saints-A Non Prophet Organization.” – This does not change simply because Billy Graham removes Mormonism from CULT status after 50 years of preaching on it. I worked the Billy Graham crusade in san Diego in 1977 – Where do you think I first heard the bulk of what I am saying in these blogs? Billy Graham personally laid into Mormonism for a whole night of the crusade.

This is the last time I am going to bring this up between now and the 6th – It is up to you to deal with it:  —but you are getting me involved, which is why I am speaking up about it.

lies,

xweaponx:

That CHRISTIANS are doing this, is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen, the most indecent thing, and the fact that this is a so-called “Spirit Filled Ministry” – Which Spirit?  Because the Holy Spirit with which I am familiar would never encourage anyone to use this level of unprecedented HATE. A MINISTRY that is doing these things, should be taxed, because this really has nothing to do with God, or what He would Want. Not to mention, was this little “experiment” also done with Romney’s contribution page? The entire argument here, is that Obama’s campaign fund accepted a “Foreign” contribution from a Terrorist. Using an AMERICAN Credit card, from Pasadena. I’ll bet the people who saw this little transaction saw it and said “Well, thanks for the $15 contribution, BUB.”

Is the Tea Party a perversion of Ghandi’s Passive Resistance?

For the last Two Years the Tea Party has controlled The Senate. They have filibustered a record number of times, more than any Senate has used the device in the history of the United States.

I started my life as a Republican in a Catholic, Republican family, so I had to sit at the dinner table discussions. Over the Years I investigated other parties, including the Libertarian Party, which I joined in 1988. This was before Nonpartisan Ballots. My Father, a staunch Republican, challenged that choice. I agreed, so I became a Democrat in the 1992 election, and have been ever since. I did not switch because I hated the Republican party, I just disagreed with my father’s policy of “Vote No on everything that could possibly cost money” – Sometimes a good measure requires some fiscal impact, although I mostly agreed with his policy. His policies usually were with regard to how a candidate or measure would affect the taxpayer, but I expanded, or rather restricted the policy toward things that would affect my immediate tax bracket and below.

In 1992 I voted for Clinton, which did cause some family squabbles, and again in 1996, which caused more. But in 2008 I voted for Obama, which almost caused a great rift between myself and my family members. Suddenly I was bombarded with accusations of Nazism, Communism and Socialism (which are not even close to being the same things). One of my family members in a rage said “I’ll KILL You!”

So I was excited for my government in 2009 when Obama took Office and I thought NOW we will see some real change, now, maybe some good things can happen. An Historic Event had just occurred, a Coloured Man had taken the Oval Office. I had been behind Hilary Clinton running, I did not know who this Barak guy was. I was even considering voting for McCain, he seemed a nice guy. So I went to a couple’s house on the very night Sarah Palin was announced as VP Candidate: And what I saw there defied everything I had known about Presidential Elections in my then 51 years: The First Words emitting from Sarah Palin’s mouth were not encouraging words as to how McCain/Palin were to fix the huge Deficit Bush/Cheney had left us to rot in… What ensued was a barrage of Vitriol Unsuitable for a Vice Presidential Candidate and mostly very personal attacks on Barak Obama himself.

This was when I knew, there was a huge Paradigm Shift occurring within the ranks of the Republican Party, it was as if any sense of Honour and Responsibility to the People had been Excised completely from the party. From that moment on, I was a supporter of Barak Obama and I have not wavered in my support these last 5 years.

I did not know it then, but after time has passed I understand now that I was seeing the birthing of the Tea Party. In 2008 we saw the complete assimilation of the Republican Party by the Libertarian Party. I did not know this either, Until about four months ago, a friend of mine, a Republican, explained to me that Ron Paul is a Libertarian, but is only registered Republican so as to have the possibility of winning Elections.

In 2010, the “Republicans” took over the Senate, and from then on have obstructed every forward moving measure Obama was in support of. Closed Door Meetings with Republican Senators only resulted in Zero votes by Republican Senators for any and all of the measures brought into the Senate for Voting-If in fact the Measure was ever brought up for Vote, due to an inordinate amount of Filibusters, and other obstructions.

There seemed to be too much of a “solidarity” thing happening, but Solidarity is usually only present under heavy oppression. So I could never understand these obstructions, especially on many of the things that would have benefited both parties. But then, about 5 days ago, I was directed to something which sounded wonderful: The Thrive Movement.

I was very excited about this, and I wanted to tell everyone to look at the Film, which is highly controversial. I was instantly challenged by one particular friend of mine, who had investigated it, and debunked it heavily, when the movie was shown to his child in a Public School! He even met with members of the movement, but they would not change any of the most controversial items in the film. I wanted to know, why was there so much opposition to it? I mean it was just a World View, a Set of Problems, and some Possible Solutions.

So I followed the path that was laid out before me: I read every Pro and Con article and the many comments on each one. It led me to one inescapable destination: The Tea Party.

The Only Political Leader backing this movement is Ron Paul, Nobody Else is even associated with it. Over half of the people who were interviewed in the film have publicly disassociated with it. The Film’s main source of information is David Icke, which causes even more concern. But it is the “Solutions” section of the film which is wholly disturbing: Foster Gamble, the maker of the film and leader of the movement, who is actually part of this High Level “1%” who is controlling the World according to his own film, supports Ron Paul as President. In the Solutions he calls for PASSIVE RESISTANCE and cites Ghandi.

It may not be coincidence that this film and movement appeared in 2011, because in 2010 the Tea Party made it’s swollen bulbous ugly head known to mankind. If Gamble is a close friend of Paul’s, then he is also closely connected to The Tea Party, and the Senators who have been Elected in 2010 , maybe without knowing they were dong so, have been using Gamble’s misguided misuse of Ghandi’s Passive Resistance to form their Obstructionist Bloc.

I have been around this time and time again for days and every time I look out in another direction at other aspects of Thrive, I am always led back to Ron Paul and The Tea Party. For me, it explains where the obstructionism comes from. It does not necessarily follow that these Senators actually know that they are taking part in it. If they knew? If they could view the film, would they continue? Who knows, but it is just better to Vote them out of Office, and we have a solid chance of doing that very thing in November 2012. VOTE.  “Voting is force, and force is the power from which all authority is derived”-Robert Heinlein (A Republican) “Starship Troopers.”  The Only way to change the world is to use your ONE Vote to do it, not by refusing to vote or obstructing others from doing so.

Contemplating Howard Hughes and Mitt Romney

I was just contemplating the difference between Howard Hughes and Mitt Rom(o)ney. Both rich sons of bitches who grew up wallowing in wealth. But that is where the similarity ends, cos Hughes was never really stingy with his wealth, and he actually worked: And that was why he was about 20 times richer than Mittens will ever be:  The Diff, the really Big Diff? Howard Hughes not only got his own hands covered with Grease (In a figurative way, naturally), but he actually created jobs on US SOIL.  As crazy as the guy was, he actually put hundreds of thousands of people personally to work. Granted some of them working to protect him from Germs, but work nonetheless.

Image

Mitt Romney is NO patriot, not like Howard was. What did Howard do? He helped us WIN World War II, he designed the ammo loader for machine guns that were on every plane. He actually made Transatlantic Flight financially feasible for a lot of people. Most of the tech we use today has SOME link back to Hughes.  But WHAT has Mitt done?

In 1985 Mittens was just beginning his process of “Harvesting” companies – Not to obtain their Product,  not to make them larger. Simply to make his pocketbook larger. We know that Howard bought out all kinds of companies,  he always tried to make them produce more.  He bought TWA and created Transatlantic Flights.  He even operated the company at a loss, but eventually when he did sell the company it was worth well over what he put into it himself.

Romney is NO patriot. Hughes was known to do boons for hard pressed people now and then, Romney tells us that 47% of Americans are freeloaders. Romney tells us to “go to the emergency room” for Medical care.  Hughes? He made a Hospital. And where Mittens wants to  be able to open a window on a plane, Hughes almost single handedly set the Aviation world on its ear, bringing innovation after innovation. Hughes actually made several Movies that were GOOD, groundbreaking and stretching the limits of the Censors, bringing us visual and auditory excitement. What will Romney do? He’ll initiate Internet Censors. He’ll SHUT OFF Free speech.

If Howard Hughes were alive, and running for president, he would be ten times the candidate Romney is. Because he was a true blue american inventor and innovator who never tried to squelch the people who he actually worked with. He demanded much from them, but he put record numbers of people to work.

When we consider Howard Hughes and Mitt Romney, we see the difference between a strong american work ethic – Hughes did not just inherit his money, he continued to work to make his lot and our lot better. And just as Leonardo DiCapprio as Hughes says in “The Aviator” — “I’ve been fighting High Hat Ivy League PRICKS like that my Whole Life.” Well, let’s do one for Howard – Let’s KEEP this High Hat Ivy League Prick OUT of the White House and out of Politics altogether.

The Future Starts HERE – Or The Past: You Choose.

We are at a crossroads of American History, and how we vote and who wins this Presidential Election will be the deciding factor on the fate of the United States.

What is At stake? Our right to Vote. Our Social Security. Our right to make CHOICES. I have been told that “Americans want to go back to a certain set of Values, to a MORE MORAL Government.”-What Values? The Values of  The Prohibition? How did making Booze Illegal prevent people from Drinking, they just did it anyway?  How is making Abortion Illegal (again – and back to the Dinosaurs for Women’s Rights) going to stop Women from finding a way to do it?  If they can’t do it legally, they will just get it done any way they can. Anybody see the movie “Alfie?” (With Michael Caine) How about “Love with The Proper Stranger” (Steve McQueen and Natalie Wood)  The first depicts the mental anguish of having to choose an abortion, and having to live with the Choice. The Latter depicts the same situation, and what could happen if having to resort to an Illegal Operation, which could include real physical danger. It is difficult enough having to CHOOSE to abort, but then having to find a BUTCHER or CROOKS to do it? And you can’t call every woman who wants to have one, a prostitute who is getting the procedure done for CONVENIENCE sake. With all of this attention on Fetuses, who is going to take care of the BABIES that will be born? Will YOU take care of them, will you buy them FOOD, will you get them MEDICAL CARE?

Not, I think, in an Administration whose candidate has VOWED to End the Medical Care that so many have worked for, for so long. Not in an Administration whose candidate has VOWED to cut taxes to the most wealthy people in America. And NOT in an Administration who uses tactics like THIS to get Elected, by any Scheming method possible:

Does anyone remember WATERGATE? Even Richard Nixon was man enough to resign his post. That made him a Hero to me, the admission of guilt. Now when I watched part of the Republican National Convention they had a DEFICIT CLOCK with the words “We Built It” underneath, NOT ONE WORD was mentioned about the 8-year Bush Administration. We Know that this Deficit was created under HIS watch. So in effect, they DID Build It. I will not elect a candidate whose Wife defends his withholding of Tax Returns with the words “What YOU PEOPLE have to understand…” and ‘We’ve Given You All We Are Going To Give You.” And to call things like Medicare and Social Security ENTITLEMENTS, THIS INSULTS ME TO MY CORE because I WORKED for 40 years and I PAID INTO the system which is helping me NOW. I do not deserve it because I am ENTITLED to it, I deserve it because I WORKED for it.

But even so, there are severely disabled people who could not have worked, it is our DUTY to help them in all ways possible. For a Political Party who uses the Bible to pound home so many issues, for them to want to take away what little help these people actually get is Not Christlike.  For them to want to deny coverage for hopelessly disabled people smacks of Darwinism: “Natural Selection,” NOT any values from the actual Gospels or Epistles. And a Candidate that calls 47% of all Americans lazy moochers who want more “entitlements” is insulting: Not to the 47% but to 100% of all Americans.”

Galations 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

But to those Christians who will VOTE for this guy, you need to remember the words of John:

1st John 1:1 ¶ That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)
3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

 
5 ¶ This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

 
8 ¶ If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

 
1 ¶ My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

 
3 ¶ And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

A NEW COMMANDMENT:

 
7 ¶ Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.
8 Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.
9 He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
10 He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
11 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

DO I FEEL LOVE coming from WestBoro Baptist Church? DO I FEEL LOVE from the CHRISTIAN RIGHT?

 
12 ¶ I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.
13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.
14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.
15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

If these people are Voting for this guy because of their VALUES, and NOT SENDING ME LOVE, they are NO BROTHERS of MINE.

After so many years of reading the History of the Church, of the Crusades, of the Spanish Inquisitions, I have to believe that the people using the Bible to thump Absolute Authority at me have never even read their book and they have certainly never practiced any of the Teachings of their own Saviour. And they are not doing so NOW.

VOTE for CHANGE – Don’t Vote for sending the US back to The Dark Ages. DO ALL YOU CAN. GET OUT the VOTE. “WE the PEOPLE” not “WE the Corporations.”

How if I kicked you in the balls SO HARD…

-That they get LODGED in your Fuckin Nostrils. Eh? This little spew was from Whoopie Goldberg from a little comedy moovie called “Jumpin Jack Flash” in the Mid-80′s. Not the best moovie, but it had some of the best one-liners ever. The response to Whoopie was “How if I cleaned your mouth with a Wire Brush?” I remember it was one of the first moovies that dealt with Computers being used as a “Chat-Room” and Whoopie was talking to Jon Pryce in Russia.  Later in the 90′s the Dial-Up BBS became very popular, most of them private call-in sites some of them offered Internet Access through a SLIP account. I used this for my first ISP, little company called Anarchy-X. In a few years, AOL took over an entire corner of the Dialup Business, of course, they had their own numbers, relays, a huge network, offering Internet access, but vetted through their proxies.

In 1997, I was the first customer in my entire county to have Broadband Internet Access – And it was VERY Fast back then. They did not bother to cap the upload speed, and I never had to worry about bandwidth usage.

But now, they want to mete out every BIT I use, making me PAY for overages. It has not gotten that bad yet, but elect RoMONEY? You’ll see restrictions galore.
