Not really… The supposed “good old days” are merely those of our -relative- youth; what was the so called status quo as we became young adults.  However, the values that were instilled by our parents, and those we held on to in our adult years have been roundfiled in these warped times.  The videos are a reminder of the changing cultural morays; the loss of society’s sense of right and wrong, what it meant to be earnest, and truthful.

It Started with PAN / In My Life

I refrain from making big changes to my page unless necessary to maintain its integrity.

Those who have been long time allies with me here on WP, may recall that I started my political posts on Patriot Action Network.  [I previously mentioned having been suspended out of hand, for calling them out on platform issues, which prevented members from being able to make posts.]

Since then, with much “water under the bridge”, I finally tracked all the posts in my archives, saved the ones which I had reposted here, and deleted those which I had linked to but were no longer accessible. These can now be found under the menu category “PAN ARCHIVES”.  They include posts which were formerly under either Rogue Government, or Big Brother.

They represent many allies I can no longer communicate with, as well as former administrators who have since departed.  I have managed to keep in contact with a few of them, and they remain highly valued allies.  Regardless of age, the contents remain as valid today, as when they first appeared.

Pass this on to Atheists you encounter –

Pawn Sacrifice

checkmateThis is hardly the usual fare for my political page.  Posted under the category of People; because you will be drawn into the characters, and the times it reflects.

Anytime a movie is prefaced with “Based on a true story”, I’ve learned that based on (key words) means that among other forms of artistic license, they may add fictional situations, and/or characters to dramatize the story.  I’m posting it, with 45 minutes still to be seen.

Among the questions I’m asking myself; Was Bobby as egocentric, and arrogant as he is portrayed? Was he really paranoid?  Did he in fact have a priest (also a chess player) as a close friend, and confident?

In one scene, he even receives a phone call from Henry Kissinger.  Was that real or fictionalized?  The fellow who played Peter Parker in the first Spiderman movies is portraying Fischer.  They call this a “biography drama”, but in reality, -including the clever insertion of period music- the suspense factor for anyone who is a Chess fan, is palpable.

The Crucible Nov 8, 2016

My long time conservative ally, Cry and Howl is largely responsible for my “growing up” in the political arena.  During 2008 I had established a political humor page on JibJab; the authors of that site had attained a large following on the MSM for their political potshots at politicians, presidential candidates, and the election process in particular.

I was fond of many others there, one participant, Jamesal, who has since vanished, had a unique ability for satirical humor, including a post I so much wish I had downloaded, called “Engrish”.

Others were just as adept; I for one, had always been one to check out the editorial page of the daily newspaper my folks subscribed to from the time I was six.  The editorial page contained political cartoons; these were very worthy of the now subverted phrase “one picture is worth a thousand words”.

So JibJab became a convenient avenue to use satirical humor as a vent for many issues, both social, and political.

Then, in late summer, the tremors of what was to come started their rumbling.  There was the emergence of an out of nowhere, glib, smooth talking, flim flam man, with a name that was enough to make me question our nations sanity – Barack Hussein Obama- that had won the Democratic nomination to run for the Presidency.  Who was this person with a name that reeked of Islam?  How in hell had he been able to be vetted for this office?   Where had he come from?  Why were folks so eager to eat up all the lofty promises he was making?

He was shrewd; convincing so many with no past to speak of.   Then there was trouble on Wall street…   A domino effect (thank you greedy bastards)  caused several big banks to start toppling, and Government stepped in “because they were too big to fail”.   After the fact, it turned out the watchdog for things financial had tried to warn the administration of obscure goings on at Wall Street, and was told by Mr. Greenspan to shut up!  That they knew what they were doing, and stocks were doing well.

When December arrived, we had (my opinion) committed national suicide.  Obama had attained our nations highest office.  The crash that autumn had devastated the nation financially;  I made my first Political video in response to the Wall Street shenanigans.

Expose – The Wall St Shuffle was uploaded directly to PAN.   I just now took a chance and uploaded it to YouTube as “private” with a new title, so as to share it here.

We learned nothing from 2008. There are more toxic derivatives out there than before. We can’t take more liberal financial policies.  This is a reminder of what happened.  Beware a repeat of the 2008 debacle!

I found myself stuck in a subsistence paying job which had me juggling my meager finances just to keep myself off the street.

Angry isn’t even the proper word for my mindset. However, it is the only acceptable (non swearing) term I can use.  I became allied with Patriot Action Network; they seemed to be a legitimate venue to speak out against a suicidal course America had welcomed with open arms.

Patriot Action Network was lead by Darla DaWald, a big part Resistnet, and Grassfire, of the Tea Party movement.  Here is an old video, with her speech at 2:08:45:

April 15, 2010

Online Tax Revolt Rally Tea Party supporters gathered for a rally on the deadline for income tax filing to advocate lower taxes, smaller government, and protest Obama administration policies.

This was still before we came to realize that both parties were entirely corrupt, and politicians were only interested in  hold onto the power they had amassed.  [Can you say Congress, and John Boehner the head steer?]

But trouble never rests… PAN decided they had outgrown their site, and endeavored to set up new digs; with a fast looming deadline for members to transfer their posts etc. before the old site was abandoned.  The new site was a logistical nightmare; trying to get set up I found that little if anything worked properly.  The platform was modeled after WordPress, but the dashboard was untenable.  In desperation, I checked out WP, selected a theme, and with no little effort, managed to salvage a small portion of my efforts at PAN.   For some time, I ignored PAN altogether, making WP my political voice.

Much later, (PAN having remained at the old site)  I resumed activity there.  I had accumulated many allies, and had made use of YouTube to post Political Satire Videos -thanks to many great political cartoonists- from Townhall.com.  Then, more rumblings…

Unknown to me, there was some nasty dissension within the ranks.  Darla, who had done so much for PAN was replaced; moreover, they had -again- decided to “upgrade”, with the result causing many roadblocks in simply attempting to make a post.  I called them out on this, stating that I wasn’t going to make any more contributions until “they got serious”… the end result was being unceremoniously suspended from PAN, losing all my posts, and allies I had been connected to.

So here we are, many years later, with the most crucial election in our history just around the corner.  I am older, sadder, and just as fed up as I ever was.

Break on through to the Other Side

The title comes from an old “Doors” song; about 1967.  The Doors – Break on through
Lyrics:
You know the day destroys the night
Night divides the day
Tried to run
Tried to hide
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side, yeah

We chased our pleasures here
Dug our treasures there
But can you still recall
The time we cried
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side

Yeah!
C’mon, yeah

Everybody loves my baby
Everybody loves my baby
She get
She get
She get
She get high

I found an island in your arms
Country in your eyes
Arms that chain us
Eyes that lie
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through, oww!
Oh, yeah!

Made the scene
Week to week
Day to day
Hour to hour
The gate is straight
Deep and wide
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through
Break on through
Break on through
Break on through
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

One of many popular secular music groups of the 60’s, I never liked Jim Morrison; history records his onstage antics which were at best obnoxious, often degenerate.  But this song’s lyrics came to mind when I checked out a social site called “Medium”.  Odd, this all started with the quiz I had just posted prior to this one…

One of the questions posed by the quiz was “If you were a social media website, you would you be…”

There was no “none of these” options, so I cautiously chose “Medium”.

I suppose I scored “high”; the results having completed the quiz were as follows:

Result: The Sustainable Browser

Share your result

You rock the free web!

As a dedicated web warrior, you live an organic, open source, do-not-track lifestyle. Your friends know you has a conscious web citizen who goes to the source and gets to know who’s behind the news, sites and apps before consuming them.

Thanks to the cornucopia of groups, lists, sites and platforms out there, you’re a well-connected community member with online relationships reaching far and wide. Like any motivated activist, you find it hard to pass up a juicy petition, survey or crowd-backed project. Every click is a chance to change the world.

As a conservative, this liberal crock made me wish I had ignored the quiz altogether.  But since I had chosen a site I never heard of,  I decided to visit this place and see what they were about; the link below will show you a point of view “from the other side” as it were.  This person has “#Bronx” as part of his brief bio.   The subject of the post is Code Switching, a term heretofore unknown to me.   A “guesstimate” is he is a NYC dweller, though I could very well be wrong.

In any event your feedback is wanted and hoped for.  Seeing “Black Lives Matter” as one of the tags gave me pause.  A city dweller -and I mean a BIG city- among the liberal sectors of our country, grows up in a totally different world from the one I grew up in; the many ethnic groups in such places had long ago created enclaves with their own rules.  These “cities within a city’ became the subject of the Broadway musical, then movie, “West Side Story” in 1957, long before America turned itself inside-out in the late 60’s.

Here then , is a taste of a “Medium” blogger:

BREACH – 2007

Nearing the 2016 elections, with the fetid, corrupt, excuse for a government, no longer adhering to the Constitution it is supposed to uphold, hopefully reversed by electing a Trump administration, I stumbled on a film based on one of the worst breaches in F.B.I. history.   The tension in this drama is palpable, and makes one’s flesh crawl.

Proverbs 6:16-19King James Version (KJV)

16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

                                                *                    *                    *

Eric O’Neill was called to the office and assigned special tasks: tracking a senior agent of the FBI, under the guidance of new boss, Laura Linney.

Blue Duck Fly to North Country

Today, the synapses clicked somewhere in the region where my brain stores memories of  music.  In the early 70’s I obtained via FM radio, a folk song whose lyrics cut like a straight razor.   Many outspoken artists were using music as a platform to call attention to man’s aberrant, self destructive behavior.

It is still very relevant today; perhaps the unveiling of facts surrounding Fukushima caused this to surface, but I am uncertain.  What is certain –  we at some point will “reap what we have sown”.

 In finding it on the web to share with you, I discovered who the artist was.  Until now I never knew.
