The Winter Season- The Sunday Collage

My friend Jim at Conservatives on Fire abruptly quit blogging over a year ago. He offered no explanation. Jim had always been a great supporter of mine. I missed him and worried about him. Jim was a class act. He tried to be impartial and never used profanity while writing. I have never had that sort of restraint.

Jim I think, was wiser than I- much sooner than I.

Back in 2008, I had this idea that blogging would be an excellent way to reach out and unite people. I believed that people could circle the wagons and repair our country if we could all just agree that we had a problem. I realize now, at age 55, that I was an idiot. That the vast majority of people don't care.

I can't even call them stupid because they might actually be the smart ones. Not caring might be the healthiest thing that the minions ever do for themselves. There is no saving America as we once knew it. Perhaps the best blog ever written on that topic is linked here.

This morning, I read that Judicial Watch had filed a Freedom Of Information Act request for Hillary Clinton's phone conversations during the period surrounding the siege at Benghazi. They struck gold. There it was- Hillary Clinton lying to our nation about some idiot videographer bashing Mohammad and Islam on "You Tube" which she alleged caused the Benghazi attack- and now we discover she was telling Saudi Arabia on the phone at virtually the same time- that Benghazi was a planned Al Qaeda attack. Like her husband, she just flat out lied to America rather than suffer the shame and ridicule that her actions warranted.

The ramifications are enormous. After begging and pleading for additional staffing help, Ambassador Chris Steven's pleas were ignored by Hillary Clinton. Once the siege began with less than two months before the presidential elections, the Commander in Chief not only failed to send help that night but disappeared altogether. After Chris Steven's body was dragged through the streets of Libya- Hillary either concocted or saddled up with that ridiculous cover story to escape her wanton disregard and her dereliction of duty. She should have been immediately relieved of duty and prosecuted but we all know that ultimately President Obama called the shots that night. That this shameless sociopath has a chance to become President is testimony to the complete apathy of the American public. I can find no finer example of how far this country has fallen. Most people in America don't fucking care about this country or politics and people like Jim and I- albeit slow learners- are finding this out.

We are spoiled. America has become a nation of self absorbed, superficial, greedy, fat, unhealthy, plastic boobed narcissists who are forever wanting and thinking some material bullshit will make them happy. Many Americans actually believe we are better than other cultures. More than half this country checks out daily on prescription meds, illegal substances, and booze or some other mindless activity involving cellphone chatter or television. They are too self absorbed to pay attention to anything beyond their inner circle.

You know why we have a huge substance problem in America? Because we don't like who we are and what we have become. Why do people use substances? They want to change the way they feel. If we really believed we were this shit hot role model for the human race- we would actually lead caring and spiritual lives with emotionally healthy coping mechanisms. We wouldn't need placebos like food, sex, booze, drugs, therapists, cellphones, and tobacco to change the way we feel. We can lie to our neighbors- but we can never lie to ourselves.

I know all of this. I finished this big blog this morning about Hillary Clinton's illegal and unethical activities because I am deathly afraid that this sociopath will become President. And then I remembered three things- people don't care, Blogger has a delete button, and that the world is perfect- exactly the way that it is. If Hillary becomes President then that is the way it is supposed to be. Acceptance is always the answer.

I'm about to share the greatest lesson I have ever had to learn.

The world is much larger than any of us. It was created perfectly. Everything that happens here is supposed to happen. People are supposed to grow old and die, some die young, and some die for terrible reasons. People make mistakes. People fail, that's what we do. It's what we learn from those mistakes and how we respond that is important. Sometimes people learn and get better, sometimes they don't. None of this is the fault of the earth or some make believe divine being who asks us to offer up human sacrifices or on occasion, sacrifices their own for the sake of us. Surely there has to be a better way of practicing faith.

Terra firma doesn't fail. It's just a platform, a stage, a place for all of this drama that we create to take place. When the time comes, a space rock will come and reset this planet. Mother Earth will shake us off like a bunch of fleas. Everything has a season and I understand that.

So why do bloggers write? Self fulfillment, ego, sometimes money. It's a damn good question and I'm afraid I don't have much of an answer right now. I have published 2030 blogs in 8 years. Some were pretty good and some were awful. I am out of topics, tired of writing about the same old stuff and tired of reading the same old stuff. A friend of mine sent me this video today. I never get tired of it.

Don't quit. We don't know each other...but we do. Hang in there.

The journey is the destination.

Move beyond it. You know its absolutely BS so become an observer only. They are not going improve the economy you and I use, us average folks. They are not going to save anything, not even the corporation they represent which calls us all resources, property.

“psychologically conditioned, the public will accept the stages of the New World Order as if they were self-evident.”~HG Wells

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”---From ‘Propaganda’ by Edward Bernays

And from my friend Willy;

The term ‘reason’ is composed of three smaller words: Re As On.
Through reason things stack up in a particular order, they have a composition.
Forensic study of history can draw out the evidence, and this evidence can be arranged to chart a very clear picture within the larger frame of investigation of the system the paradigm designs.
Motive is identified as an open agenda.

As McLuhan pointed out, the big things need not be hidden, but are in plain sight, the public’s incredulity is what keeps it from their notice. The agenda is verily shouted from the rooftops in historical literature. The modus operende is described in great detail. In fact that which is supposedly hidden by the ‘Secret Societies’ is as open a secret as all else. The MO of the cult of intelligence for the state is so fully understood that ‘circumstantial’ charges are simple to make. This is standard racket science, gum shoe street smarts.

But it is all invisible from INSIDE the paradigm, for it is a type of box. A box constructed in the mind by programming and conditioning. It is a trance, an enchantment, as powerful as any fairytale story about wizards and dragons.
In fact the Paradigm itself is a carefully designed myth, using all the emotional cues of any mythos. And even THIS is part of its power, for those who hear the real story think it sounds too much like a fairytale to be true—this is their double-bind.
It is reasonable and so, that there has never been a person who has been successfully brainwashed who believed they were brainwashed. It lies within the definition of the word itself. That the vast majority are immersed in the myth and unaware that the pretense is proven by the fact that the system of appearances is maintained.
This is the crux of the problem that the crux of the matter reveals.

As utterly horrific as the matter itself is, the problem it has manifest is even more so,
the majority of the people are automatons responding to media and social cues and have no control over their destiny.

It is that horror envisioned by the film, THE INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS.

End Willy's comment..

The invasion of the mind controllers..

I also realized about a year ago that the general population
just does not care. The smart phones, television, sports and
free streaming pornography, dial up food that is delivered in
less then thirty minutes. Reminds me of the Kinks song
"Give The People What They Want".The problem with giving people what they
want is that in the end the tab comes due.
I guarantee nobody is going to be reaching for that check.

Ephesians 6:12 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

12 [a]For we wrestle not against flesh and [b]blood, but against [c]principalities, against powers, and against the worldly governors, the princes of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness, which are in the high places.

Ephesians 6:12 Secondly he declareth that our chiefest and mightiest enemies are invisible, that we may not think that our chiefest conflict is with men.
Ephesians 6:12 Against men, which are of a frail and brittle nature, against which are set spiritual subtleties, more mighty than the other by a thousand parts.
Ephesians 6:12 He giveth these names to the evil angels, reason of the effects which they work: not that they are able to do the same of themselves, but because God giveth them the bridle.

I always get a kick out of you Greg. I think mostly you have been correct- The US was organized as a corporate entity by the elites of that day. Yet from the beginning they resisted many of the facets we have today- individual taxes, central banks, debauched currency.

You get the feeling that this is just the nature of things. Intentions start pure and then slowly erode over time whether it's the Roman Empire, Weimar, or the US. Time and time again history repeats. The details change but the net effect is the same.

I think it's late October in the US life cycle. Gawd how I wish I could see how this all turns out- maybe a look 100 years from now.

I am thinking of aiming the Roadking at the WRV soon---we should get a cup of java.

Yeah its all corporate, and privately owned. There is no law where you have not contracted – CONTRACT IS THE LAW. And thats just how all of this world is.

I'll grind us up some right here. I'm around for awhile yet. Snow keeping me from working. I'll be subcontracting as a faller on a USFS thin job for awhile. And washing gravel. Looking at a new crusher.

"Living on a Thin Line" is one of two songs on Word of Mouth written by Dave Davies (the other being Guilty). Davies said, in his biography Kink, that the track was influenced by The Kinks' long and difficult career, along with his hatred toward politicians.[1] The song's lyrics compare the barbaric times of medieval England to today, saying that "inside we're the same as we ever were".[2]

Tough slough ahead dude-the rubber is gonna meet the road soon enough, it is a real fucking thin line, so the question becomes as stated, so what are supposed to do?

Stay healthy-buy ammo-put a year's calories in the basement.

Don't stop writing either(that's my vote)-if you're up against it, I love the police stories.
