Armageddon’s Child Is Born!

Armageddon

The mirrors all are cracking,
and the smoke is blowing away.
You can see the whole thing clearly.
Another crash, they can’t delay.

Follow the Russian ruble.
Focus your attention on Iraq.
They created another terrorist.
And now Ebola’s coming back.

Don’t look beneath the table.
The gamblers all are dead.
The cracking of their bones,
means they have no betting spread.

This show is over folks.
And as the Ball comes to an end,
the rotund lady sings.
And there’s no money left to lend.

The dancers writhe in agony.
Their frenzied pomp is gone.
And the badly written script,
only elicits another yawn.

The bull is now a bear.
And as I look across the sea,
another bear just shakes his head,
over America’s stupidity.

Say “Farewell” to all you know.
The stars and stripes are torn.
As they launch the killing drones,
Armageddon’s child is born.

The New Year Will Bring A New War!

never ending war

The New Year will bring a new war,
because there is no other way,
for man to settle his differences,
and so it continues to this day.

When have we ever been at peace?
Can someone give me a date and time?
I’m not looking for a miracle,
just an ever hopeful sign.

If I don’t give you what you want,
then you exert your will,
over me and what is mine.
And for this, you choose to kill.

Those armed goons you send,
I counter with my own.
As we fight to the very end,
the results are already known.

There are solders standing waiting,
they stand waiting to answer the call.
And we make sure they know their duty
is to fight wars that will never stall.

I hear the echo of the flintlocks,
and I see the flash of bayonets.
Now it’s missiles, grenades and drones,
fired by young West Point cadets.

The scenery never changes.
It’s the same old battlefield.
There is smoke and there is carnage,
and soldiers dying from wounds not healed.

So look forward to this New Year,
as we continue the trends of the old.
We don’t want to live in peace.
Peace lies dead in a grave so cold.

Not to end 2014 on such a sour note, but I am a realist and I do not believe that somehow, an epiphany will hit our ‘world leaders’ and that they will come to an understanding that we all share this planet. They seem recklessly and seemingly hell bent on sending us headlong into another world war and if that happens, I really don’t see how any of us will make it through, completely unscathed, if at all.

Peace? We don’t even have a ‘piece’ of it.

Marching For Climate Change!

sink wall street

Flood Wall Street

Demonstrators march towards Wall Street from Battery Park to protest for action on climate change and corporate greed, Monday, Sept. 22, 2014, in New York a day after a huge climate march in New York City.
Flood Wall Street
http://news.msn.com/world/thousands-join-in-global-climate-change-marches-1#image=2

Marching for global climate change? That’s NOT going to get it done! How about we stop buying, buying and buying? How about we sink Wall Street instead of flooding it since we flood Wall Street with our consuming ways. How many Apple products would be sold if we simply stop buying them? How many ways could we stave off further damage to this planet if we simply refused to buy yet another Apple iPod touch 3rd generation, 4th generation, 5th generation so that WE as people could continue for generations instead of a goddamn iPod?

When will we cease with the hypocrisy already and get real?! By marching, you’re not doing a goddamn thing to stop global climate change. The only thing you’re doing is some feel good shit that ain’t getting it done! How many of you charged up your iPhone before heading to the global climate change march? Eh? What’s that? I fucking can’t hear you! That’s what I thought. Every goddamn one of you plugged that charger in and then the minute you could, uploaded a video of how many people attended the global climate change march and marched for not a goddamn thing because you’re ALL fucking up and causing climate change. Getting arrested ain’t how you do your part to mitigate the damage that’s been done by us to this planet. Marching through Times Square by the hundreds of thousands did what for global climate change? Not a goddamn thing.

What you need to do, you refuse to do. You can’t stop buying. And those same people that marched by the hundreds of thousands will be camping out in mall parking lots in just a couple of months in anticipation of purchasing some more earth destroying junk. Now, you see what hypocrites you all are? So stop pissing in the wind and get with the program that you’re not at all serious about combatting global climate change when the only thing that you are willing to do about it is march and ‘flood’ Wall Street with more of your dollars that enable those thugs to reward themselves with multi-million dollar bonuses for having amassed a fortune for their shareholders because you’ve got to ‘spend baby, spend’!

Again, here’s a clue! If you ain’t living in the woods and riding horseback, you’re contributing to climate change. If you’re hooked up to the grid and shopping and driving, you’re contributing to climate change. Accept it! Deal with it! And either stop doing that shit or sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up because all that marching is useless and just for show! Who the fuck you think you’re fooling? Get real!

I Die A Thousand Deaths Each Day!

imagesKQ3GQEGY

When will you stop killing me?
I die a thousand deaths each day.
You kill me over and over again,
and then another me, you slay.

We are all just one big family
but you don’t see me in that way.
You point your weapon at my chest
as though I’m just some hunted prey.

The blood that flows from me,
also pulses through your veins.
And as another me lies dying,
a thousand more of me remains.

So, kill each and every one of me.
And when you’re the last me left to stand,
then the killing will finally end,
when you die by your own hand.

What difference does it make in the name that we give the latest excuse for war? There will always be a ‘group’ of people that will be perceived as evil incarnate and therefore, must be ‘bombed’ into oblivion. Must we ALL have to die for there to be no more war? Must there only be one so-called, ‘human’ left on earth and then what? What would that last ‘human’ do? Kill himself?, that is my guess because after all, what else are we wired for?

So, we’re going to bomb the ‘ISIS be-headers’ club because that will put an end to ‘terrorists’, right? It has worked SO very well thus far, hasn’t it? We ‘arm’ the ‘terrorists’. We train the ‘terrorists’ and then when they become ‘uncontrollable’, we ‘bomb them because they decided on a different course of action than what we initially intended. Sigh!! We never learn.

I Watch From The Sidelines!

watching


I watch from the sidelines,
too helpless to do a thing
as a world writhes in agony
and no sparrow deigns to sing.

I watch from the sidelines,
not knowing what to do
as bombs fall on innocence
and the snake strikes right on cue.

I watch from the sidelines,
what is my purpose here
to die by the hands of humans
from which all creatures flee in fear?

I watch from the sidelines
as man destroys this paradise
laying waste to a bounty of blessings
and we shall all be the sacrifice.

A Battleground!

nuclear_explosion_atomic_bomb-1680x1050

I want to thank you all for coming onto my blog.
The reason I write is to try and cut through the fog.

Our American representatives are straight up whores.
Their only interest is to embroil us in more wars.

We bear so many scars from wounds that have yet to heal.
Veterans are denied access to health care and that shit is for real.

Stupid Americans always believe everything they are told.
They never question the government and it’s getting so old.

How can we wake up the dead when they refuse to open their eyes?
What is the point when they are hell bent on believing all the lies?

When we hear of the shit that is going down in Libya, what do we do?
We don’t do a goddamn thing even when we know what they tell us isn’t true.

The Israelis are killing the Palestinians and yes, we are complicit in that shit.
Our tax dollars fund a goddamn genocide on the Gaza strip and here we sit.

Iraq is in turmoil, civil war has broken out and who the fuck do you think is to blame?
What does it matter because we always find a patsy, a scapegoat to frame.

Is it ISIS or ISIL or al-Qaeda or some yet unheard of made up group?
We are so fucking trusting, so stupid and so goddamn easy to dupe!

They don’t even bother to pretend we matter or that we are important.
When that lying Obama speaks to us, he is pedantic and oh so mordant.

What is the use in trying to get through to you when you don’t even listen?
You’d rather get propaganda from the Washington Post, the lame stream edition.

Wake the fuck up and recognize that America is killing this goddamn world.
Our very existence could soon end and life as we know it is imperiled.

Those who run this country are hell bent on keeping the status quo alive.
They would take us all down and not hesitate as they mean to survive.

The rules are written by them and we are mere chess pieces on a board.
Power, they refuse to relinquish and immense wealth they must hoard.

Look to the East and see the hell that has been unleashed.
Then get your calculator out and start counting the bodies of the deceased.

And don’t bother to stop, just hand the calculator over to some other fool.
They keep a running tab of the dead and the dying as a rule.

You thought to look to the future because you think that you have one.
Little do you know that your life will soon be over, finished and done.

Think on that shit, let it sizzle and simmer and then put in on your plate.
Maybe then, the fog will clear and the fact that you’ve being played will penetrate.

Why do you think we outspend every other country in the world on our military?
Well, I got news for you, it ain’t because the expenditure is necessary.

Why the fuck don’t you stop playing with your toys and take a look around
long enough to realize that America has turned the whole goddamn world into a battleground?

As I read different blogs, I am just astounded by the sheer cluelessness and outright stupidity of Americans who believe that Vladimir Putin and Russia is actually responsible for downing Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17. The outpouring of anger at Vladimir Putin is amazing given what we know about what is behind that mess in Ukraine. I just have to shake my head over it all because many Americans are truly insane. What other explanation is there? To be that brainwashed, I did not think was possible, but apparently, it is. The unquestionable acceptance of whatever is shoved down the throats of people who refuse to think for themselves and to just believe utter tripe is just mind blowing. I am ashamed to call myself, American when many in other countries are not blind, nor are they willing to believe the blatant and outrageous lies that the American representative shits are spouting without any credible evidence to back up their tall tales and overblown lies. But I forget, the rest of the world has not been blessed with that great American ‘exceptionalism’, so how can they possibly understand that America can do NO wrong because Americans are ‘exceptional’. The only problem with that is Americans are exceptionally stupid, arrogant, hypocritical, brain dead, comatose, ignorant and full of shit!

So Americans, bring your clueless, stupid ass on up in here with some foolish shit, I fucking dare ya!

 

We’re Already Dead!

2b10eeb8-96d5-11dc-b2da-0000779fd2ac

Do you see what I see?
Can you believe your eyes?
Take the blinders off
and don’t believe the lies.

We are living in a shithole
that needs to be destroyed.
Gather the world’s forces
let your weapons be deployed.

We’re already dead,
so get on with the show.
Don’t stop until it’s over,
destroy your mortal foe.

We ALL Go Down!

Christian-riot-in-Egpyt

They’re trying to shut us down.
They’re trying to run us out of town.

What’s up with that shit?
They want us all to quit.

Let’s keep plugging away
as we fight for a brighter day.

Don’t ever give up and never give in.
Stick it to the bastards, again and again.

They don’t fucking like it but neither do we.
Our backs against a wall and up against a tree.

We’re running out of time as the shit hits the fan.
Push the motherfuckers back as only we can.

If we all join together, we can beat the sons of bitches.
Only we can stop their looting of mother earth’s riches.

So fucking hop to it and get this thing done.
Or we all go down together, each and everyone.

Keep writing and keep stirring up the pot. Those who would rather we not do this are not happy. That’s a good thing. Keep at it. We have no choice. Make waves! Don’t hold back! Load both barrels and let the motherfuckers have it! Let ’em know we’re here! I’ve not been able to post because my computer got too hot to handle and blew up, literally. I am waiting on replacements. Yes, replacements because I am going to back my shit up. When ‘they’, the NSA or whatever, fuck my shit up, I’ll just plug up another one and keep at it. So, to the motherfucking spies, I give notice! I’m loading both fucking barrels, motherfuckers! Fuck with MY goddamn shit and I simply regroup!

Power to the ‘refuse to be silenced’ peons!

The World Is Tired Of The Western Whore!

aa-American-Empire-3-12-14

Oh yes, I long for you to die!
You know only too well, the reasons why.

What evil sons of bitches all of you are,
as you deploy your weapons, both near and far.

You scream, “Democracy!” as you drop a bomb.
And you do it with so much aplomb.

You’re a liar, a hypocrite, a thief and a snake.
You murder and plunder, leaving death in your wake.

You’re archaic, obsolete and you’re not needed anymore.
The world is tired of the western whore.

You’re diseased and contagious; someone pull the plug.
There’s no cure for you, no pharmaceutical drug.

Die already and never come back.
The world is tired of your need to attack.

Peace could be had if only you’d die.
No drone would fly through a clear, night sky.

A mother in Pakistan could finally stop crying.
Guantanamo would close and no more spying.

So much would change if you dropped dead.
It’s time to stop the madness; you’re why the whole world has bled.

She Wants The Parasites OUT!

images71UPHAN1

When the earth gets to shaking, she wants the parasites out.
She’ll heave and fuck us up; she knows what she’s about.

She’s tired of our nukes and fed up with fracking shit.
We just take and take and take, never knowing when to quit.

She gets torn all to pieces as we’ve got to dig so deep.
We’ll soon be a’ wailing or be dying in our sleep.

Oh, they say this ain’t the big one; she’ll calm down for sure.
Don’t worry unless they tell you to, your fright is premature.

When you’re feeling all secure, she’s gonna send your ass to hell.
If you think that she’s not had it, when she does, it’ll be farewell.

….and by all means, keep fracking(hydraulic fracturing), ’cause it’s good for the earth see!

Ohio is setting new permitting conditions in earthquake-sensitive areas and has halted drilling indefinitely at the site of the March quakes.

COLUMBUS — State geologists in Ohio have for the first time linked earthquake activity in the Marcellus Shale basin to hydraulic fracturing, confirming the suspicions of activists pushing for drilling limits in the interest of public health.

State Oil & Gas Chief Rick Simmers told The Associated Press on Friday that a state investigation of five small tremors in the Youngstown area last month has found a probable link.

He said Ohio is setting new permitting conditions in earthquake-sensitive areas and has halted drilling indefinitely at the site of the March quakes.

Don’t stop now! Frack, baby frack!!!
