The New Police Vow

This Sacred Vow is to be repeated in unison by each and every police officer of every single police department in the United States of America and to be repeated 3 times in succession before every session of muster, and before every single training session, at each and every Police Academy every single day, or night, as the first order of business at muster, to be spoken aloud with hands over hearts the following vow:

I, _______(name) do solemnly vow to protect all the citizens of the world, but in particular, those who dwell in America.  I fully recognize to the depth of my immortal soul, the source of all light in the world, and before the One God, whom I adore, that each and every life, whether rich or poor, and of whatever color, gender, or age, is more precious to me than my own life.  (Speak the following with right hand folded in a fist to quietly, but firmly, beat the heart with the fist 3 times).  I will kill myself before I allow the least harm to come to any being within my ken and/or within my power to so protect.  Whatever pain I see before me I will take upon myself that the other may be healed -- whether the pain is of the body or the spirit, or the heart, of any being here and now, I vow to heal it. 

If I should fail through importunate circumstance, I will immediately submit to a Citizen Review (to be completed within the 24 hour span.)  If my offense is deemed a willful dereliction of the least part of this sworn duty, I solemnly vow here and now, by the light of the God whom I love and who is all goodness and loving -- to punish myself under the watchful public eye of a News Camera to be broadcast on the local Nightly News show.

The process of this punishment to be as follows:  One bullet placed in an empty chamber of an official firing weapon; all other chambers being empty; then to spin the barrel vigorously, with full strength of the hand, for the the first offence --then to pull the trigger while aiming the weapon at my own foot.  Whichever foot is healthiest.  Should there be a second offense -- I will aim at my own kneecap.  And after a third, if there can be such a thing, at the temple of my head.

The Police State

The question is not whether we will have a police state but rather how do we go about dismantling the police state we now have got. I thought this was a fairly radical position and would be a fire breathing sort of blog post.  But it seems I am a step or two behind.  It was easy to find videos on YouTube to support my thesis.

This one, for example, puts it out there in simple language and orderly reasoning. And this fellow made this video in 2012.  Indeed we are boiling frogs!

Why Everybody Loses With TPP

ow that corporations have defined their long term goals, we are all in trouble.  The simple reason being that corporations want to dominate all governments everywhere.  That is, Capitalism has always wanted to dominate the world and can't exist or co-exist with Communism or even Socialism.  It is like rabid dogs they will not stop.  Especially now that they can sniff victory in the air what with Obama pushing hard for its passage and insisting that nobody read what is in it until it has passed Congress.  We know that none of it does Americans any good.  Indeed, the substance of the TPP seems to be Wiener Take All!

They foresee a world where corporations, like say, Monsanto, Dow Chemical, Dupont, GE, Halliburton, you name any corporation whatever size  -- they can sue your local state county or city or neighborhood laws or even rules.  They will have absolute power.  The Corporations now seek to dominate world government forever with nary a word of dissent because after all the treaty calls for corporations to sue any government that they deem impeding in any way, their profit or even their potential profit.

This is a masterbatory fantasy cooked up either in ALEC or in a backroom somewhere.  I almost wrote a "Back Alley" somewhere, as it has that low, brutish sort of mentality behind it.

And the scary thing is, as I say, now that they know what they really want, and verbalized it, put it into a treaty,  they will never quit trying to insert their greed based manipulations, wishes and deadly desires into every bill that comes into Congress.

*   *   *

So my question is why is Obama pushing this?  Why is he persecuting Elizabeth Warren when she tries to talk some sense into him?

Why has Barack Obama become a treasonous president ready to deliver America to the corporate thugs?  Either there is a lot of money behind it for him, or else they have promised that if it does not pass he along with his wife and children will be assassinated.  Oh, yes!  That is the way capitalism works.  The corporations really are that vile.  Look at Comcast, for example.

 I voted for Obama.


I am more disappointed than I can say.  I hated the Tea Party for their unreasoning hatred of Obama.  I thought they were wrong.

They were right!

Barry you're a liar and a fraud.

Here are 2 good, quick discussions on video by people who know what they are talking about.

German Bankers and The Greek People R US

ight wingers bite their nails these days.  If they do not bite their nails they are not at all aware of the reality of the fragility of their position.  But most do know they are in trouble.  That is why the Koch brothers are now spending billions on the 2016 elections.

They are afraid for their very lives.

They fear the mainstream of the voting public will do what the Greek people did.  The Greeks nationalized the wealth of the elites in order to pay off the German banks.

For their part, the Germans of course want the Greeks under their thumb.  They want the Greek people to live in AUSTERITY because that is the kind of harsh, limited and oppressed existence German bankers think everybody ought to live in.  Except themselves, of course.  German bankers sincerely believe that they and they alone should live in unspeakable luxury while the rest of the world lives on its knees.

So we can see that Angela Merkel and many of her German people actually learned nothing of humanity or charity, or even decency as a result of losing WWII.   Hitler's corrupt Nazi dreams of Aryans ruling the world still survive under the surface of order and humility.  If ever the will of a people were encapsulated in a metaphor, the German bankers are that metaphor.  Despite the fact that in 1953 Germany begged and howled that they could not pay their debts and the Allies would have to cut the debt by 50% and more, which the Allies did;  they now have the audacity to turn around and say to the Greek people that no quarter will be given and this debt must be paid in full.  And schnell!

That is a Hell of a lot of audacity!  That is not mere AUDACITY!  That is a form of Tyranny.

Tyranny is that form of government which seeks to control everything everyone does, says or even thinks.

Tyranny is that which must be destroyed.  And historically -- tyrants are losers.

The Greeks are smart.

Especially given that, in 1953, the Germans were heavily in debt for WWII on which they spent very heavily and still they lost.  They owed huge amounts to France, Russia and the USA.  And this is the part where Germany shows how ugly it truly is -- even today:  But the problem is not necessarily even the bankers.  It is the capitalist system.  Though capitalism is now on the wane.  Capitalism is worn out.


My own political system of choice is Democratic Socialism.  Socialism is the corrective for the excesses of capitalism.  The medicine, if you will.

I will close with an insight I found on the Internet:

A criminal is a person with predatory instincts 
but without the funds to form a corporation.

The Swing Of The Pendulum

For more than 3 decades the corporations have held the workers in their thrall; demanding that they work overtime without commensurate pay; often without pay at all; insisting that they come in on Saturdays and often, Sundays.  Workers have responded with all the timidity of slaves eager to please their masters.  Anything to keep their jobs from going overseas.  And all too frequently the jobs went off to Asia or to privatized prisons anyway.

But every era comes to an end -- even as its antithesis begins.

Sir Isaac Newton discovered that the universe obeys certain laws: According to his Third Law of Motion, every action has an equal and opposite reaction.  Every pendulum swings both ways -- and the greater the arc it describes in one direction the harder and farther it will go in the other.

This is not just my opinion.

It's a law of physics.

Physics is a verifiable way of describing how the Universe works.  One thing you'll notice about the Laws of the Universe is that most of the laws work from the most gigantic events, the macroscopic level -- all the way down to the microscopic level.  Even vast galaxies will obey these laws; and so it goes all the way down to the smallest atom within your being.  Alchemists knew this principle in these words:

As above, so below.

Once the iron ball of fate begins to slow in one direction and starts its fall back to center and beyond -- nothing in this world short of an act of God, or the Universe itself, or war, can stop it or even slow it down.  Quite the contrary, it begins to gather force slowly and then accelerates, going even farther than it has ever gone.

Mathematically, it looks like this:  F = mv 

And if we go beyond the Newtonian Clockwork Universe, to the Einsteinian Universe, we find other Laws at work.  For example, we discover Heisenberg's Principle of Uncertainty, whereby it seems that matter itself acts one way when we observe it, and quite another when we look away.

*    *    *

So what we have now is gross corruption in the Executive branch, a president who sold his soul to Wall Street and they have come to collect.  The Legislative branch: both houses of Congress who despite the shrillness of the American people's protests have voted to FAST TRACK the worst piece of trade agreement ever conceived in the mind of man. Finally, there is malfeasance and misconduct, in the courts of the Justice system from the highest court in the land down to the lowest.  The Department Of Justice is now so corrupt that murderers walk free; and people are sent up the river to do hard time for smoking a weed.  A weed which many cultures, especially indigenous cultures, have valued over millennia for its recreational and medicinal properties. Indeed the courts have reached so abysmal a mockery of Justice that they have begun to send people to jail for no other thing than being poor.

You can go to jail for speaking truth.

*    *    *

But the pendulum has begun to reverse, inexorably, its direction.  Who knows what the global cultures will look like in say, twenty years.  But we do know that the plutocrats and the oligarchic families will no longer be in charge.  The rich will be on the run in ways which cannot even be imagined now.

The Republican Congress

In laying out their plan to slash funding for worthy social programs, i. e. programs which are deemed by the majority of responsible persons, most importantly by persons expert in the Social Sciences, to be of immeasurable benefit to society,  the Republicans in Congress have once again torn the pact between government and the governed.  The Social Contract.  This means they recognize only the authority of the monied.  Unfortunately, the people of America will not fight back because although they are not all as extreme in their weakness of mind, they nevertheless to worship at the alter of Authoritarianism nearly as much as the mentally incapable Republican leadership.

What is odd is that when you question authority you find that it cannot offer convincing argument to justify its existence.  Other than that Authority justifies its existence by saying because "this is the way that it is."  Or else because it has always been this way, and you need somebody to boss you around.  Because man is inherently bad and you need somebody to keep you on the straight and narrow.

This is, of course, pure hogwash.

Of course, the GOP consists of nothing but Submissive Authoritarians.  That to a large extent explains the inordinate popularity of such pieces of crap as Atlas Shrugged, with its cardboard characters who live one dimensional lives, and happens to be one of the worst piece of literary garbage ever written.  The author, Ayn Rand, was an authoritarian of huge proportions. Nor did she live by the principles she herself espoused. After complaining about the collective, trashing any gathering of persons   Submissives are easy to discern as they tend always to fight tooth and nail against any perceived criticism of their near-deified authoritarian boss.  And the other gem, 50 Shades of Gray.  The value of Fifty Shades book is how clearly it shows how all politics begins in the bedroom.  It also explains the enchantment of the right with George W. Bush.  They worshiped ol' lonesome George W.  The reason for the hyper-worshipful attitudes of millions of right wingnuts, of George W Bush was that he is not a true Submissive Authoritarian.  He is what the Submissives spend a lifetime searching for:  A Dominant or Dom, to use the language of the Submissive, or as we know them, the Mind Slaves.  These are people who cannot exist without serving a master, the more brutal, the more worshipful.

This perverted mindset begins with the abuse of children.  Usually by parents -- to start with -- the perfect example being the members of The Westboro Baptist Church.  Records clearly show that the children were hideously beaten most often with a leather strap by their own father.  And the beatings began at an early age and continued into later teen years.  while I would not suggest that all authoritarians are survivors of childhood abuse, I would say that a majority of them are.    

But what we are talking about is utter abandonment of the Republicans of caring for the welfare of the people.  This reckless abandonment began decades ago.

Q and A

Andy Warhol began by asking himself: "What do I want?"  The answer was money.  He made a painting of dollar bills.  He gave us a new perception of reality, or, I should say, apparent reality.  Andy made money hand over fist.  Buckets of money.

ANDY once asked me to star in his movie.

I said No.  I knew that I was not ready.

I ask myself, "What do I want?"  Of course I want money.  But Warhol was the first to make the quest for money into art.

I want so much more than mere money.

I want to know "Who Am I?"

And of course the answer is contained in the question:


I am the pack of cigarettes on the desk before me.  I am the computer.  I am the veils lifting from my consciousness.  I am the brilliance beyond.the void.  I am the silence of the void.

I AM the question.

I AM the answer.

I am the light. I am the dark.

I AM not kidding.

I AM speechless.

I AM the silence.

I AM the Song.

I AM the breath.

I AM everything that is not.

I AM the beginning of the universe.

I AM the end of the universe.
