A little conversation with the dead



Hey, exmearden,

I always meant to comment to you,

but never got around to it,

least not in a long time.

And now you are dead

and, I’m assuming,

without wifi or such.

Still don’t quite know what

I’d say to you if I had

took the time to make that comment

Just the intention, I guess,

to say hey, to connect briefly

for no reason at all





except that






Maybe it was your vibration

I would wander past,

like wheat waving in the field

That sound, you know,

that vibration, I sort of

thought of you like that

Like the sound of wheat

waving in the wind,

receptive like that

Yeah, it was a vibration

even if it wasn’t

really much to do with wheat.


I raise a cup to you,

and drinks it all down.

Tonight Joe Bageant returns to WWL Radio, with tales from his recent book tour for “Rainbow Pie: A Redneck Memoir,” flashbacks to Leary and HST interviews and a little perspective on the American psychosis as an observable phenomenon from a beach hut in Belize.


Now living in a small lake community in Mexico, Joe might just get to opine on the events in Tenacatita as well, if Dobie can uplink to the show.

Joe is one of the brightest and the best, and a funny and sweet man. He gets the Lefts, and gets it from a ground-level position. He’s one of us, only, well….. smarter 🙂 Come enjoy the show!

Full Spectrum Dominance

I don’t always have time but the beauty of people waking up is I don’t have to!

It is us against the anal sociopathic globalist control dweebs.  Not the Palin party nor the KumBaYah party or even the spiritual enlightenment party.…

But seriously is there an “Illuminati” plot to ruin the very fabric of independence and pioneer spirit Americans used to be famous for?  Well I have recently observed an evil trend in the RV macerator business.  What is a macerator?  It is the thing one uses to get the poop out of the holding tank if your favorite camping spot does not have “the facilities”.  Well we don’t fly, we don’t cruise and we don’t have facilities.

The old reliable style macerator.…

The “new” macerator.…

Note that the old macerator pump connects directly to the standard RV holding tank connection while the “new” style leaves the plumbing connections up to you.  Ok, so you might be asking why this is significant.  Why is this important.  Well they, yup, “them them” don’t want you and your loved ones going off the grid all by yourselves in the backwoods where you can enjoy nature.  They don’t want you far away from the din of electronic media, the shopping mall and other sheeple who act as police in keeping your thought train in line.

By Henry Chu, Los Angeles Times

Reporting from Wimbledon, England – Britain is about to undergo an extreme makeover. And Festus Grant is worried.

The 71-year-old was crippled by a stroke early this year, and he doesn’t know how he would have coped without the “angel of mercy” who knocked on his door a few days after he came home to his modest flat after three months in the hospital.

The care worker from the Stroke Assn. helped him piece his life back together. She arranged follow-up trips to the doctor and signed him up for a shuttle service that takes him shopping once a week.

To See Again the Stars

David Axelrod, who as we all know is the third greatest political genius of all time, right behind King Louis XVI and Pharaoh Phukitallup I, who only lasted 2 days, is going to be busy brainstorming campaign slogans for Obama’s rerun for the White House in 2012.  I don’t know what he’ll come up with, but I know what the top three slogans would be if the truth mattered . . .  

I Am the Way Into the City of Woe

I Am the Way Into Eternal Pain

I Am the Way To Go Among the Lost

Those words, engraved on the archway above the Gates of Hell in Dante’s Inferno, precede the final words, Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here.  If Obama isn’t primary challenged, if corporate control over the White House isn’t broken, we can abandon all hope, because this country will keep descending from one level of Hell to the next, until we reach the last and deepest level.

Midway through their journey with Obama, Americans find themselves in a dark wood, for they have wandered from the straight and true.  They weren’t led out of the darkness, they were led deeper into it.  The relentless beast of corporate power comes against them, step by step, determined to drive them back to where the sun is silent evermore.  So vicious is its nature, so ill-bent, it never stuffs its ravenous will enough, but after feeding hungers all the more.  

Dante had the poet Virgil to guide him through Hell and lead him out.

We have this guy . . .

From behind the tinted glass of his presidential limousine, Obama surveys the desolation of a wrecked economy, the carnage of endless wars, the expansion of the surveillance state, the resurgence of racist hate, and claims this is what change looks like. This is not what change looks like. This is what Hell looks like.  

Please, pass the monkey wrench: Political vs. Financial Crises

We need a repertoire of transgressive contention.

Because Ilargi is spot on:

Debt always has to be paid down, restructured or solved through some combination of the two. For now, the negatives of both options are laid squarely on the shoulders of the people of the various afflicted nations, instead of on those of the folks who incurred the debt.  It seems unlikely that this will continue much longer. Surely, there must be one nation where enough voices can come together to say: no mas?! So far, little action. Protests in Britain, Ireland, Portugal, but nothing anywhere near massive. Nothing that even seriously disrupts an economy or society.

I saw some footage early this morning on BBC that sort of says it all. The news presenters compared the student protest marches outside yesterday with those inside, some sort of sit-down. The latter were praised for being peaceful, the former derided for being violent. Which they weren’t really, there were just the odd few token people who threw stuff, a few among many thousands who just marched. And those few could easily have been paid to throw that stuff by the government. The message being that both the BBC and the government had rather see you sit in a room than march on a street. Much easier to control.

As long as we don’t escape that sort of controlled environment, nothing will happen. It’s all about the difference between a financial crisis, which most people continue to believe this is, and a political one, which it actually is. This crisis is entirely political because, for instance, politicians don’t protect their electorate from predatory institutions and practices. Because those predators are the ones who have the real political power (re: campaign finance). Because, see Ireland, banks and their stockholders are still being made whole on their losses, without restructuring, without haircuts, at the cost of the people. Who still have no clue what is going on. It would be a good thing if that would change. A very good thing. For you. For your children.

Where do you think the €100 billion or so or more involved in the Irish bailout ends up? This money is used to pay off the gambling debt of Irish bankers to global banks, to Deutsche, Société Générale, and eventually to the same Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan that are in the center of all these miserable stories all over the globe. That is what has to stop. And until that happens, it makes no difference who you vote for in your elections, no matter where you are.

And if anyone tells you it’ll all be alright, you just ask them what they suggest we do with the debt. Shoveling more and more into your own kids’ graves doesn’t sound like a great idea, so why do you do it? You’re not going to change this one with a sit-down protest.
