When lies turn into madness

It's not so funny how the same lies that we hear now being spoken by our so-called leaders in Washington about the events in Ukraine, or Syria, or Iraq, or Libya, or about any of the dozens of other countries upon which the American military has bestowed its "humanitarian" efforts, are the very same lies we were told in 1939 at the beginning of World War 2, when Germany marched into Poland to rescue its abused citizens there.

World War 3, Anyone?

They told lies about Syria and they turned out not to be true. Now they're telling lies about the Ukraine and Russia, and they will turn out not to be true. The only problem is, will they start World War 3 in the meantime, as hawks in Congress and sycophants in the news media are chafing at the bit to see the bombs start dropping.

Our leaders are traitors

How long will it take you to wake up? Will you ever wake up? Is it no longer possible for the world to awaken?

The behavior of barbarians

The most remarkable — and disgusting — declaration I've heard in the past few weeks was the statement by the Ukraine's new outlaw Jewish prime minister calling the Russian speaking residents of the eastern part of the country "subhuman". This not only went well with the policies of Ukraine's criminal ex-president Iulia Timoshenko, who advised using nuclear weapons against these same Russian speaking residents of the eastern Ukraine, but was right in line with the Jewish preference of dealing with non Jews throughout the world.

Humanity fails the belief test

Why has our society failed? Because in general, it doesn't tell the truth. Children are brought up understanding that there is a double standard, that people don't say what they mean, and that the rules society insists it follows do not apply to everyone, particularly the very rich and powerful, who may break any law they like at any time because they essentially own the justice system.

Fire sale on a used-up planet

Everything's available at bargain prices because the world is going out of busines. I don't know if there has ever been a time when hope has been in such short supply. Like a big department store going out of business after many years, the looting of its products has begun. The only thing that matters to most people is the quick score, the short term profit, the gaming of the system in search of serendipitous ill-gotten gain. Even the bargain prices aren't that important since the world's financial mechanisms have been revealed as total shams, and you can't even tell anymore how much money you actually have, since the value of your currency diminishes daily.

The war against ourselves

Without religion, we remain in a war against ourselves, dissecting reality with a ruthless scalpel, disparaging hope, ridiculing love and insisting we can handle the burden of life and death all by ourselves, forever dissing the reassuring comfort of a true belief as delusional, manipulative thought control.

Deliberately wasted lives (Happy Memorial Day)‏

So, who was it that the heroes of Seal Team 6, riding on a boobytrapped helicopter they never should have been on, gave their lives for? Or how about Pat Tillman, the handsome football star turned Army Ranger and budding peace activist, who one day while serving in Afghanistan turned up with a small circle of bulletholes in his head? First they gave him a Silver Star for bravery; then they admitted he was killed by friendly fire. Who was he killed for? Was he about to say the war in Afghanistan was a bad joke?

Your hiding place

It's impossible to maintain your health in a society for which you feel contempt and shame. The guilt of living in such a society ruins your life, pollutes it, taints it. You can delude yourself for a time, for years, even, and think you can isolate yourself from the world, indulge yourself in your preferred pastimes, console yourself with platitudes that you can't control the world and never could, but the rot eventually overtakes you, infects your whole life with embarrassment that you are living in the country whose underlying principle is ruthless murder and deception.

Humanity's Twilight

The future can be nothing but a mirror of the past. What you put into it is what you get out of it. The pessimistic professor Guy McPherson reminds us that the environmental impacts we are feeling now are but the results of the industrial pollution of the 1970s. So if we live that long, we can look forward to 50 more years of garbage in the lungs of our planet to affect us more significantly in the coming years. If you think that's going to be like getting hit by a speeding freight train, you'd be correct. Needless to say, it becomes difficult to contemplate scientific projections that will erase us all from the foreseeable future. But how much can we lose before we can no longer endure? And will that survival be something we can continue to call human?

An embargo in the mind

Why is everyone afraid to say who the real criminals are? Because we don't know our own history — and likely never will — we are compelled to accept their history, which after digesting a lifetime of lies, we begin to realize is false. This is how we are persuaded to accept that Muslims from caves in Afghanistan knocked down skyscrapers in New York City, how Adolf Hitler was the most evil person who ever lived, or how the present president of the United States — a man with no verifiable identity who has used several different aliases — is now allowed to kill anyone he chooses without a public explanation.

Tomorrow has been stolen

The dawn of a new darkness casts its shadow over a mangled furture.

Nothing ever gets solved

Don't get me wrong. I love true believers. I have the greatest respect for those who say "the truth always comes out in the end". The trouble is, it doesn't. In fact, it's more accurate to say "the truth never comes out in the end". How many examples do you need?

The elderly are the lucky ones

How can anybody who calls themselves a decent person support what the United States is doing, not just to unsuspecting innocents overseas, but to well meaning people inside America who have only tried to be good citizens and raise happy families. What have those people done wrong to merit such abusive treatment by those who are supposed to protect them? There can be only one answer. The USA is no longer run by Americans. 

Murder by plane crash

Many intelligent people have tried to piece together the significant facts about the missing Malaysian jetliner that has finally been declared crashed and lost in the unexplored recesses of the Indian Ocean near Antarctica, but one fact leaps out of this morass of tragic and confusing details that tells the whole story in a single thought.

Nature has been made illegal

As I see it, the only truly valid instruction we receive in this life comes from our parents when we are little. They warn us against burning ourselves, to avoid being hit by a passing car, and most especially, not to lie, or people won't believe what we say. Which is why it always puzzled me that all the information we receive from society throughout our lives seeks to break down these initial instructions, these common sense safeguards given to us by the two people who love us most, our parents. 

America, minus the mask

First and foremost, a nation of killers

On a shrink and a prayer

As hope for the future grows ever darker, psychology and religion deal in irrelevant truths.

Agents of deception

Dulled and dimwitted by an onslaught of brain damaging anesthesia — fluoride, TV, fast food, chemtrails, meaningless distractions — most Americans can no longer remember the past in any meaningful way.

The Curse of Lions

So I was sitting in my doctor's office the other day, pondering why my blood pressure was 40 points higher in my right arm than in my left, when my gaze drifted across a recent National Geographic magazine, which featured a cover story about sugar — which happens to be central to the issue of my blood pressure — but also contained a fascinating story about lions, whom I was surprised to learn seldom lived past the age of 10.
