A Cashless Society?

And so here it comes!

The other day at Dig Inn, a just-opened lunch spot on Broadway and 38th Street in Midtown Manhattan, Shania Bryant committed a consumer faux pas. She placed her order for chicken and brown rice and yams, and when she got to the register, she held out a $50 bill.

“Sorry,” the cashier told her. “We don’t take cash.” Not, “We don’t take $50s.” No cash. Period.

“What?” Ms. Bryant asked.

The cashier patiently explained. Credit and debit cards were fine, as was the easy-to-download Dig Inn phone app. But the almighty dollar was powerless.

“I’ve never experienced that before,” said Ms. Bryant, 20, an assistant to a designer. “I guess we’re in new times.”

Why do we always allow ourselves to be pushed around? For the life of me, I cannot understand why we go for this mess time and time again. Why we let some shopkeeper tell us how we are going to pay them. Why we allow ourselves to be prodded into giving up more and more of what few freedoms we have left; the freedom to pay with cash as opposed to an app on a phone or with a credit/debit card.

I guess you’ve forgotten how easy it is for hackers to hack into store point-of-sales transactions since you are now ignoring the fact that there have been massive data breaches at many stores we all shop at; Kmart, JC Penney, Target, Neiman Marcus, Macy’s, Michael’s, Home Depot and don’t forget Experian’s T-Mobile data breach, UPS and even healthcare companies, banks, government agencies and credit bureaus have been breached as was the case with Anthem, Premera Blue Cross, Care First Blue Cross Blue Shield, UCLA Health System, Excellus Blue Cross, JP Morgan’s customers, Ebay users, 21.5 million people who’d had a government background check, Sony employees were hacked and have we forgotten about the Ashley Madison hack and the list is endless and yet companies are refusing to accept cash payments even after knowing the extent of data breaches at stores and damn near everywhere else.

Have you never guessed why the use of credit/debit cards is touted everywhere? It is because every transaction is recorded, just as our phone calls are recorded and our keystrokes are recorded and our photo is recorded every single time we are out on the street, walking or driving. We are even issued tickets based on a recording of our license plate thanks to red light cameras and speed cameras that are pro-ticket because there have been lawsuits challenging the fact that tickets are issued not because people did anything wrong but because this puts more money into the coffers of the city that is promoting these types of cameras and putting money into the coffers of the companies that make these traffic cameras go off before the light has even turned red. The acceptance of this mass surveillance by us has led to the massive erosion of the few rights we have left, such as the right to pay for our purchases by any means at our disposal; i.e., credit/debit cards, gift cards or cash.

Why is it you have no problem aiding and abetting in the continued deprivation of your rights by patronizing instead of boycotting businesses that tell you how you are going to pay them? How many times do you have to get hacked to understand that you don’t need a credit/debit card or an app to pay for a sandwich? And don’t even think that just because you have a chip on your credit/debit card that you are secure when you make a payment using that method because it is just as ‘hackable’ as the chipless card. Am I suggesting that you walk around with hundreds of dollars on your person at all times? No, but at one point, people did and we never heard of excessive muggings. I have carried stacks of money on me and I have never lost a dime. I have, however, had money stolen from off my credit/debit cards.

Case in point. I was at a restaurant and I paid for my meal with a card and gave the waitress her tip in cash. Now, I am one to check on what is going on with regards to the charges on my cards and so the next day, I called to check on the status of my card. Sure enough, the restaurant had added an additional charge to my card. I went back to the restaurant to inquire and guess what. The waitress did not think that I had tipped her enough and so she added an additional amount and charged it to my card. I decided right then and there that I would never pay for anything at a restaurant with a card, ever again and I have not. If I had paid with cash, could she have added on an additional charge? Absolutely not.

Businesses count on people being too busy or distracted to check on their receipts, the balances on their cards, the transactions on their cards and they are making an additional killing off of us because either our kids are screaming to the rafters or we just got off from work and so we’re in a hurry to get home and get dinner on the table or we’re rushed for another reason. If a business will not accept cash from you, then they don’t deserve your business. It is way past time that you fought back against businesses or corporations telling you how to spend your money, what to spend your money on, where to spend your money, and now they are telling you that you cannot pay for your purchases in cash. I truly hope that you will nip this in the bud before we get any further “into new times” because believe me, you will regret this. If cash was acceptable yesterday, than by God, it should be acceptable today.

This mass surveillance state has gone too far as it is and the sad fact is that payment in the form of cash is about the only holdout left. Those purchases cannot be traced, not unless you have signed up for a store discount card and every single time you make a purchase, in order to get an item on discount, you must first pass that store discount card to the cashier and then make your payment.

Food Lion has an MVP card and there can be no anonymity about it. The store insists that the only way to get their MVP card in order to get store discounted items is to fill out a form on a kiosk and they will mail you the MVP card. Hell! Going to the grocery store now is like going to the Division of Motor Vehicles because nowadays, our licenses are mailed to us and now a half-ass store like Food Lion is insisting that it has the right to gather information about you first in order to mail you a discount card so that you can get ten cents off a bag of potatoes? Where will this end? When we’re all standing at the register paying for our items by having a robot scan our hand for the barcode payment stamp on it?

And what about those of us who don’t use smartphones and so we cannot pay using an app on a non-existent phone? Call me the last of the dinosaurs, but I insist on a landline phone. Those of you who ditched your landline phones for smartphones may think it convenient now, but once when a tornado blew through a town I was living in, the only thing left working was my landline phone. Tell me, how will you power up your smartphone when the electricity is out? How do you call for help? You, with your demand for smartphones and your contempt for landlines have caused those of us with landlines much anguish because word is, companies are going to phase out landlines. So, because you are too stupid to see beyond today and what you think is convenience will doom us all. Those of you who will simply pull out that smartphone and pay for your sandwich with an app because the deli refuses to take cash are dooming us all because we will go down with you.

I have always said, “If I don’t stand for something, I’ll fall for anything!” ‘They’ will have to drag me kicking and screaming into a ‘cashless society’ and apparently, I will be the last holdout, non-conformist, that I am!

Why Attempting To Shut Down The Democratic National Convention Is Too Little, Too Late!

democratic national convention

 

 

The Democratic National Convention will be held in Philadelphia, PA from July 25-July 28.

The 2016 Democratic National Convention is the gathering at which delegates of the United States Democratic Party will choose their nominees for President of the United States and Vice President of the United States in the 2016 national election.

So, got your protest sign dusted off and ready for action? Got your ‘tear gas’ repellant handy? I really don’t know if there is such a thing, but I thought if, just in case there is, you could include it because you are going to need it. Now then, got someone’s phone number memorized so that you can use your one phone call to call them for bail money? Got your insurance card stuffed in your backpack so that if you get beaten about the head by the KKKops, when they finally let you out of jail, you can head straight on over to the hospital and have your injuries checked out?

I would not go anywhere near the Democratic National Convention for the very reason that it would do not one bit of good. The attendees at this convention already know that there will be protesters there and that extra KKKops have been called in to help with the arrests. The KKKops will be fully prepared to deal with your ass when you show up. Have you forgotten about all of the armored vehicles that are now patrolling the streets of our cities thanks in part to the Department of Defense(DoD) transferring over $4.3 billion of military equipment to the police? That is going to come in handy when they need to control your ass. And control you, they will. This is exactly why we are at this point. Because we have been controlled and we did not care. So now, at this late hour, we want to start showing our outrage over this sham voting system that we have that has been rigged from day one. We want to protest over the fact that we allowed things to disintegrate to what we see today.

Yes indeed, go to Philadelphia and protest. Take your bandanas and wrap them around your face. Take whatever you can with you to keep your eyes from streaming when the KKKops spray them with mace and then tear gas your ass. And then ask yourself on the bus ride home, “What did I accomplish?” No need to ask, I will tell you. Not a goddamn thing, unless you think that getting a misdemeanor and having to pay a fine, is an accomplishment, if you think getting tear-gassed is an accomplishment, getting beaten about the head by the KKKops is an accomplishment. And some reporter might actually capture a picture of you with tears streaming down your face while being hauled, unceremoniously, into a police van and then whisked away to a stinking holding cell with hundreds of others, sitting around one funky ass toilet.

So, yes indeed, take your ass to Philadelphia and protest the entire time over the fact that you failed to act until now and now, you think that by running to Philadelphia where the elites will be holding their “Fuck you over” ceremonies, that they will actually consider why you are outside somewhere, getting your ass kicked by the KKKops  and they will recognize and give a shit over your dissatisfaction with the electoral process in AmeriKKKa.

When you were busy hanging that filthy rag that is a symbol of this nation on Flag Day, when you were busy celebrating Memorial Day, thanks in part to those who will be attendees at this convention since they are the warmongers,  you could have been protesting, en masse, consistently. Only a sustained movement could make a difference. Your sporadic attempts to protest on certain days and at certain events is not going to get it done. And the elites know that you cannot sustain a movement because you’ve got to rush back to your Wendy’s “Can I take Your Order,” $7.25 an hour part-time job, that is, up until they replace you with brand new kiosks. You’ve got to rush back to your retail sales job that is already up in the air because retail stores are shuttering their doors in unprecedented numbers.

You have waited too late to go rushing around to protest because now that your ass is grass, thanks to apathy and complacency that was the rule of the day for decades too numerous to count and the bill collectors are nipping at your heels and you’ve had to move back home with mom and dad because you’ve got student loan debt out the ass and no way of paying it back, it’s now, protest showdown time in Philadelphia. This is not the old west where you can just shoot it out with your enemy in the street and become the biggest gun in the west until somebody faster than you comes along and drops your ass. Newsflash, your ass has already been drop kicked and you’re about to hit the ground. And so now, it is protest time.  Again, too damn late!

Take a look around you. Read the news. How many times have Negroes taken to the streets to protest over the murder by racist KKKops of other Negroes and what were the results? Even more killings of Negroes by racist ass KKKops, that’s the result. But you say, “You’re not a Negro” and to that I’ll simply say, “It does not matter. If you do not belong in the top income bracket, again, your ass is grass, but you just thought that it couldn’t happen to you. Well, it could and it did!” And so now, you want to protest over the direction this country is going. Too late. It is going there and there is nothing that you can do to stop it. When there may have been a point in time to nip this in the bud, we did nothing. And now we think that a hashtag and a Facebook ‘like’ is going to get things done. Well, you may meet up with some of your Facebook friends at the Philadelphia protest, but in the end, every single one of your Facebook friends will be just as fucked as you are; tear gassed and beaten by the KKKops, arrested, jailed, fined and sent back home with their tails tucked between their legs. Just ask those who were once, OWS (Occupy Wall Street).

Regardless of who slithers inside the Oval Office, whether it be Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, this house of cards is going to continue to collapse. Wars will continue. Wall Street will continue its game of smoke and mirrors, jobs will continue to be outsourced, robots will be rolled off assembly lines to take the jobs of ‘humans’, trade agreements will result in more income inequality which will add to the numbers of the unemployed, the homeless and the uninsured until it gets around to affecting US all. Food stamps will be gutted, AGAIN! Funding for other social programs will get cut, again and the soup lines will be endless and more tent cities will pop up. This is the AmeriKKKa that we sat on our ass for decades and waited for. But, you go right ahead and protest now what has already been put into play!

Oh, and before I forget, remember to wear Red, White and Blue on Independence Day. You won’t need to ‘wear’ those colors to your protest at the Democratic National Convention near the end of July because you’ll see those colors, aplenty when the KKKops get through with the disgruntled, FINALLY disillusioned, tired and poor huddled masses of protesters.

 

In This World Of Illusion!

world of illusion

In this world of illusion
no people are truly free.
Smoke will rise forever
from sea to wine dark sea.

On the brink of yesterday
lies the Palace of the Skulls.
Footlights on a hero;
the sheep to sleep, he lulls.

The spies have eyes ‘most everywhere
like gods upon a mountain.
And men in blindness lead
the sheep to a poisoned fountain.

This partnership in death
will end at Doomsday Creek.
And naked are the liars
as they appear to us and speak.

It is now or never
for the banquet ends at dawn.
And an omen of ill wind blows
when innocent blood is drawn.

Make haste or our world is lost.
Build your army out of need.
Turn back the hands of time
to when man was without greed.

So What If The TPP Agreement Is NAFTA On Steroids?

 

 

 

no TPP

 

 

 

Just because American workers lost more than 700,000 jobs to Mexico thanks in part to NAFTA(North American Free Trade Agreement, a trade agreement between Canada, Mexico and the U.S.), is no guarantee that we will see more of the like with this new trade agreement that has been shrouded in transparent secrecy. Our government would never sell us down the river. Oh Damn! My bad! Since they sold my ancestors down the river, it is a sure bet that the rest of you guys can rest assured that they’d sell you down the river just as fast. But not to worry! The descendants of the ‘Africa-to-America’ Slave Trade are doing great! Just look at the statistics of cities like Detroit, Baltimore, New Orleans, Chicago-South Side, North Philadelphia, Camden, NJ, Compton, CA and the list just goes on and on and those living in those cities can bring us up to speed on the ‘drug trade’. See! So many different ‘trade’ agreements and here, we want to have a hissy fit over this TPP trade agreement. And I have not forgotten this next group.Those made homeless by the loss of jobs to Mexico, AGAIN thanks in part to NAFTA are still homeless and are willing to teach the rest of us the ins and outs of homelessness. The ‘homeless trade’ where those that once had jobs and homes lost them both and entered into a new trade agreement between the streets, the jails and gentrification. Those people are traded by city hall and developers(hell bent on gentrification) from the streets into ‘for-profit’ prisons. There is that pesky ‘trade’ thing again folks. But hark! Never put the homeless down for it is always nice to have friends in ‘low’ places for ‘just in case’ scenarios.

Americans are in an unrighteous uproar because they see the TPP as a really, really bad thing when quite honestly, it is not!

The Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP, is a free-trade pact being negotiated among 12 Pacific Rim countries. The TPP is an ambitious effort to shape a comprehensive agreement that would not only reduce tariffs and other barriers to open markets, but also establish leading-edge standards on a range of issues affecting trade and international competition. For instance, negotiators are working to set up rules on intellectual property rights, government procurement and the role of the state in private enterprise.

Free trade has been making the world go around since man first discovered that man could freely trade one country for another, could freely trade one country’s people for another, could trade one country’s resources for another. Although in all honesty, calling it ‘trade’ is quite a stretch when that trade involved trading the shores of the British Isles for a stolen ‘traded’ America. And then, we have the ‘slave trade’ which did not elicit much ire from those who prospered by it since most of the ‘founding fathers’ certainly did, not to mention, their progeny and as I look around, quite frankly, many people of a certain complexion are to this very day, prospering from the ‘slave trade’.

I wonder why it is such a bad thing when trade adversely affects a certain group as opposed to another. Hmmm…. Something else to ponder, I guess. It would seem to me that what comes around, goes around and it is not hardly enjoyed by those who were enjoying prosperity; not by their own sweat, blood and tears, but by that of others. When the shit comes home to roost, it is then time to get out the protest signs and protest the consequences of trade agreements only when those agreements could negatively impact me, myself and I. To hell with you! Now, this is about me and I denounce in every way, the vileness, the lack of transparency and the secrecy behind this new trade agreement called the Trans-Pacific Partnership because it is not in my best interest. No, not this particular trade agreement! To those of you who are products of the ‘slave trade’ “Too bad!” To the 45 or so Indians left in America, too bad, the English traded the shores of England for America and to those of you made homeless by NAFTA, too bad you are still homeless but now that this shit is about to be shoved up my ass, it is time to scream, protest and denounce THIS shit! We are SO selective in our outrage and so late to the party!

Welcome to the New World Order! “Obey your masters!,” said the slaveholder to his slaves and so it is written and so it shall be!

Would any American like to make a trade agreement with Iraq whereas you trade places with those who have been reduced to refugees thanks to America? Would any American like to make a trade agreement with Afghanistan whereas you trade places with those who have lost loved ones thanks in part to your sons killing theirs? Would any American like to make a trade agreement with Yemen whereas you trade places with those that cannot escape drone strikes paid for by American tax dollars and the people of Yemen can come here and drive your SUV to the mall while you dive for cover in Yemen? Would any American like to make a trade agreement with the people of Libya, a Libya that is on fire. Let them trade places with you so that they will know clear skies and have options and choices as opposed to bombs and militants and skirmishes and fires. Would you like to make a trade agreement with them, America? Go on over and ‘trade’ your lot for theirs! Where are your protest signs over the trade agreement of your tax dollars for bombs and drones to kill innocent people? But if there is about to come down the pike, a trade agreement that could ultimately impact your cushiony American lifestyle, why you, along with your protest sign is there! And don’t even pretend that it is not all about you and is in fact about how this will impact people of other countries because since when have you cared about them?

Don’t Even Act Like You Don’t Know!

american history

It has come to my attention that some white folks are wondering why all of a sudden, they are seeing some shit that they have never seen before. Oh, really! I wonder why is that! Like fucking hell I do! You see, for hundreds of years, whites have been hell bent on making life as unpleasant and downright miserable and ugly for any and everybody that had a permanent tan of some sort. The whites have reduced the Indians, indigenous to America to less than a third of their initial population count that was up in the millions upon millions before the whites landed here and murdered the innocent Indians, confiscated their land and indoctrinated their children into the white’s culture AND then proceeded to inform anybody else that wanted to come here that they must first apply for citizenship when the whites NEVER applied to the Indians for citizenship, they just killed them. Shot them dead and then glorified the killing of these people with the likes of John Wayne and Glen Ford and Gregory Peck riding shotgun with a wagon train attempting to get those innocent ‘settlers’ into hostile Indian territory and oh how disturbing it was to view the wagon trains that were wiped out and see the pale ass scalps of the pale skins lying all about the goddamn ground. Oh, those horrid Indian savages! How could they? Yep! That’s whitey whites take on the history of this here shithole! Just ask fucking sick and twisted ass Hollywood!

Those savage Indians just could not be got along with and so the ‘christian’ whitey whites just had to do what was necessary to tame and subdue the original inhabitants of this land; subject them to torture, maim and kill them. Round the remaining Indians up and put them on reservations where the whites could keep an eye out for any Indians that may look cross-eyed due to their situation being what it was. Never mind, the savageness of the ‘christians’ who just wanted to live in peaceful bliss with those savage ass Indians who refused to share this land with the white peacekeepers. Every fucking body knows that whites have ALWAYS been ALL about the business of PEACE! Just ask those pesky savage Indians! Ask the poor Black slaves that got dragged over to this shithole once the whites figured out that the Indians were not going to build this shithole up for them! Ask the Black people over in Africa and the other Brown people over in other Middle Eastern countries that have had the whites on their asses since day fucking one! Ask them if they’ve ever known the whites to get their big ass boot up off their goddamn necks! Ask ’em how wonderful, benevolent and kind the white ‘christians’ have always been towards them.

And now, some white folks are wondering why they are just now seeing what the Black and Brown population of this here planet has known ever since they saw the first white foot set said foot on their motherfucking land. Some white folks are just SO fucking bewildered now that there are Youtube videos of eyewitness accounts of white motherfuckers fucking up the goddamn day of said Black and Brown bodies all across this godforsaken planet! Ain’t that just a bitch? They are fucking wondering what’s about to happen to their ass! What’s about to happen to your goddamn ignorant, clueless ass is what has been happening to every Black and Brown body that the whites have been fucking up for hundreds of goddamn years! That is what is fucking happening! And about goddamn time, I say! So read the damn writing on the wall and don’t even bother to prep for that shit ’cause you ain’t gonna have time for that shit! No indeed, you are not! Your turn has come! We’ve been dealing with this shit for, AGAIN, hundreds of goddamn years and you white motherfuckers that’s just waking up are all a’gog over what you are just now privileged to witness! How lucky you goddamn Rip Van Wrinkles have been!

Sit up and recognize that your nap is being disturbed and how! Now fucking suck on that because you don’t like having your bullshit nap disturbed over some Black bodies that’s getting torn to bits every goddamn day but if you continue to see military vehicles arrive in a suburb near you, why “what’s the goddamn problem, officer?! This here ain’t the fucking hood! We is white bread christian America, doncha know!!!” I hope their fucking boot that’s been planted squarely on our necks for centuries gets shoved up your white asses so goddamn far that the toe comes outta your fucking mouth! Now, how’s that for a fucking ‘christian’ attitude! Yeah! I know! I ain’t even close to being as rotten, vile, nasty, barbaric and shitty as the peace loving ‘christians’ are but I promise to continue to work on it and that’s for goddamn certain! And AGAIN! Suck on that!

Don’t Judge The Things I Do!

drugs

Dunk me in a martini glass.
Shower me with LSD.
Shoot me up with heroin.
Now that is ecstasy!

Fill my champagne flute,
I’ll take another shot.
Hold the ice if you please!
Oh yes, that hit the spot!

Don’t judge the things I do
to make it through the day.
I’m not cut out for slavery
just because I’ve bills to pay.

The boss is on my back.
My fate is in his hands
I do what needs to be done
and still, he makes demands.

I need so many drugs
since life, it ain’t a beach
nor a picnic in the woods
and freedom is out of reach.

They lock me up and I get out
and I go back to my ways.
What they don’t seem to know
is that on me, the vulture preys.

Capitalism, it is a bitch
Its chains, I cannot break;
It’s killing me slow and sure,
but much faster than the drugs I take.

Behold, The Face Of Evil!

obama1

They picked him very carefully as all the world can see.
He’s easy on the eye and with a great personality.

Those who went before him set the stage for what would come.
He’s like a phantom in the night; we ask, “Where is he really from?”

Oh how little did we know, he’d bring destruction in his wake.
No Robin Hood he is, from the rich he does not take.

He’s a banker’s friend; a corporate tool who’s sent us spiraling down.
He hails from a gangster’s paradise in a city called, “chi-town.”

He’s led us straight to hell and he’s smiled the journey long.
We crashed upon the rocks as though he’d sung the siren’s song.

What’s left is barren land and the poor are all but dead.
Those who could not lose, put a bullet through their head.

The serfs are drudging painfully as they keep the rich afloat.
They’re scared to make a sound; they dare not rock the boat.

Their fate would be just like the rest; that’s not to be endured.
The Black man lent his face and the white man was assured,
that all would be as he declared; no detail left to chance.
The white man pulls the strings of the Black man in the manse.

The white puppet masters are pulling the strings behind the charming, smiling, engaging, false, fake-ass face of Barack Obama, a puppet bought with blood money. He is a willing tool for those who consider themselves to be the elite. They are nothing more than worthless scum, depraved, lying, greedy, deceitful crooks with no compassion or morality. They are why we are constantly at war. They are why people are working for poverty wages. They are why we have homeless, hungry and uninsured people in this world. The hopeless, sunken eyed, gaunt people of the world watch and they wait……and they die because billions of people, as far as the elite fucks are concerned, are expendable and don’t deserve to live. If you are reading this, then you are just as expendable to those nasty bastards as I am and they will soon make a believer out of you! Don’t think so? Wait for it and I feel that you will not have long to wait!

We Turn A Blind Eye!

 

eye

Drones strike nearby

Innocent children die

Widowed mothers cry

Missiles cross the sky

Our bloodlust, we satisfy

Treaties, we nullify

Israel, we gratify

Torture, we justify

The truth, we classify

Countries, we occupy

The innocent, we vilify

Murder, we glorify

The media prints the lie

Their bullshit, we gladly buy

The world, we terrify

We don’t question, “Why?”

Silently, we comply

We’ll eat our apple pie

on the fourth of this July

and drink and just get high

since freedom does not apply

And justice has no ally

We turn a blind eye

to the horrors,  we can’t deny.

Recognize yourself in this one? I am sure you do! Now, you can look away from the truth of this one if you want, but the shoe fits and you are wearing it; stupid, clueless Americans! And while I am at it, let me disabuse you of the notion that there is anything, ANYTHING at all exceptional about you, ’cause there ain’t! I do realize that since there is nothing but air in the space between your ears, you’re finding this hard to absorb. Let me make it more clear for you. You are a stupid, useless fuck! You think the world revolves around you because you are an American. Newsfuckingflash, it SO doesn’t and you are simply a piece of shit that just refuses to get flushed down the goddamn toilet despite my many attempts to flush the lot of you, down! You ain’t getting flushed for lack of my trying and that is for damn sure!

 

The United States Government Is Harvesting Organs Of Detainees!

dick with detainees heart

Breaking news! The story that the MSM refuses to cover has been leaked. A former CIA official, who shall remain anonymous for obvious reasons, has come forward with the claim that the U.N. has documented proof that the U.S. has been systematically ‘disappearing’ people from nearly every country on the planet in order to harvest their organs. The claim that these detainees are terrorists is ludicrous and in fact, the Obama Administration has authorized the harvesting of the organs of these prisoners. Dick Cheney is an actual recipient of a heart from a ‘disappeared’ detainee.

With secret prisons or so-called ‘black sites’, the Obama Administration through the use of an executive order has been detaining thousands of innocent people without due process and who have not been charged with a crime. Although, the ‘official’ version has been that these prisoners were on the ‘terror watch’ list, this has never been confirmed. The real reason is that the elites that are opting for a New World Order, in spite of practicing devil worship, have been unable to raise their numbers from the dead and, therefore, have come up with a viable alternative to reducing their dwindling numbers by harvesting organs. They are not going out without a fight. And as many of us are aware, they are the behind the scenes puppet masters.

The U.S. government has long taken the stance that the harvesting of organs is a crime but has that stopped the U.S. from drone striking innocent civilians or invading sovereign nations without just cause or initiating coups to topple democratically elected leaders? The Obama Administration has just announced that Venezuela is a national security threat. Watch what happens next. It is time for regime change and another coup will be attempted. And so the assertion that the United States government is harvesting organs of detainees is not just another conspiracy theory but is in fact, reality.

Updates will be posted as they come in! Stay tuned!

I’m Just Too Stubborn To Conform!

nonconformist

Place the noose around my neck.
Leave me for the birds to peck.
Drown me in a sea of blood.
I’ll be washed away in that crimson flood.

Do not think to quench my thirst.
I broke the rules, I’m now accursed.
Throw me in the lion’s den.
I’ll never make it out again.

Douse me good with gasoline.
Sit back and watch the fiery scene.
Beat me until my bones do break.
Then toss me in with a rattlesnake.

Bury me while I’m still alive.
Place a bet that I won’t survive.
Shove me off the train platform.
I’m just too stubborn to conform.

I would much rather stand alone,
than kneel before the emperor’s throne,
nor suffer fools that stand in line,
and feed at the trough of elitist swine.

I wrote this poem for all who dare to question, who will not just accept, but will ask the tough questions, seek their own answers, dare to take a stand, even if you stand alone! I will not follow the crowd, nor will I conform to the dictates of a fucked up society that can no longer discern the innocent from the guilty and quite actually believe that the innocent are the guilty and the guilty are innocent. You choose ignorance and obedience. I choose truth and justice and that is why I have no problem standing alone!
