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!!!

If ‘whites’ Were Not Allowed?

earth1

The white savages killed off so many Indian tribes.

They stole their land with firewater and worthless beads as bribes.

The Indians never stood a chance against savages with a gun.

A bullet will always out pace a horse, even at a run.

An entire continent could not escape the thieving ways of man.

They plundered Africa’s wealth and stole its people for their plan.

With blood dripping everywhere, the savage whipped the broken slave.

We know who fucked the world up and who no good could ever save.

White savages will forever enslave all Black and Brown folk,

and if they rise to try to fight, they’re hindered by their yoke.

No good did ever come from the white savages rule on earth,

as they seek, destroy and kill amidst such peals of mirth.

Is it funny to this day, what those savages have wrought?

Do you find the time to laugh since in slavery, you’ve been caught?

When they finally destroy this world with their nukes and fracking sites,

and since the people have been cowed and deprived of all their rights

will the last to close their eyes see beyond the mushroom cloud,

to what this world could have been like if ‘whites’ were not allowed?

I know that this world would NOT be as fucked up as it is now. Everywhere on this planet that a ‘white’ foot has stepped; devastation, disease, plunder and death has followed. No other group has managed to crawl all around the world bringing with them that much destruction.

On August 2, 1939, just before the beginning of World War II, Albert Einstein wrote to then President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Einstein and several other scientists told Roosevelt of efforts in Nazi Germany to purify uranium-235, which could be used to build an atomic bomb. It was shortly thereafter that the United States Government began the serious undertaking known then only as “The Manhattan Project.” Simply put, the Manhattan Project was committed to expediting research that would produce a viable atomic bomb.

http://inventors.about.com/od/astartinventions/a/atomic_bomb.htm

The brilliant light from the detonation pierced the early morning skies with such intensity that residents from a faraway neighboring community would swear that the sun came up twice that day. Even more astonishing is that a blind girl saw the flash 120 miles away.

Upon witnessing the explosion, its creators had mixed reactions. Isidor Rabi felt that the equilibrium in nature had been upset as if humankind had become a threat to the world it inhabited. Robert Oppenheimer, though ecstatic about the success of the project, quoted a remembered fragment from the Bhagavad Gita. “I am become Death,” he said, “the destroyer of worlds.” Ken Bainbridge, the test director, told Oppenheimer, “Now we’re all sons of bitches.”

(Not true! You’re worse than mere ‘sons of bitches’!)

After viewing the results several participants signed petitions against loosing the monster they had created, but their protests fell on deaf ears. NATURALLY! The Jornada del Muerto of New Mexico would not be the last site on planet Earth to experience an atomic explosion.

The Story of Hiroshima

Immediate Aftermath

In less than one second, the fireball had expanded to 900 feet. The blast wave shattered windows for a distance of ten miles and was felt as far away as 37 miles. Over two-thirds of Hiroshima’s buildings were demolished. The hundreds of fires, ignited by the thermal pulse, combined to produce a firestorm that had incinerated everything within about 4.4 miles of ground zero.

To the crew of the Enola Gay, Hiroshima had disappeared under a thick, churning foam of flames and smoke. The co-pilot, Captain Robert Lewis, commented, “My God, what have we done?”

‘God’ had nothing to do with it!

Enough With The Hypocrisy, Already!

climate change

So, we’re dealing with climate change, are we? Yes? No? The climate change bloggers and doomsayers are out in full force with warnings of dire consequences if we don’t somehow put an end to everything that we are doing to enable climate change and get with the program that we’re all going to die if we don’t accept the fact of climate change and do something about it.

Now, with that having been said, “What do you want me to do about it?” “What do you want my neighbor to do about it?” “What are YOU doing about it besides telling me, over and over again that we need to do something about climate change?” How about you storm the corporate boardrooms of the oil companies and demand that they stop with their “drill baby, drill, already!” How about you chain yourself to a tree at a fracking site, get hauled off to jail, get bailed out and go right back out and chain yourself to another tree? Too much trouble for you? Is it more important for you to sit at a keyboard and preach to us about the horrifying shit that’s coming down the climate change pike? Eh? And by the way, what are YOU driving, climate change doomsayers? Are you flicking a whip over a horse as you drive your buggy to the grocery store? Are you hand cranking your computer because you’re off the grid? How are you heating your home? How are you cooling your home? Are you about to spontaneously combust because you have been holding in your farts for years? Have you sold your house and built a lean-to in the forest because if not, then you are contributing to climate change to an extreme degree(no pun intended), you know, that which you’re going on and on and on about? So I guess you’re not leaving a carbon footprint? No? Yes? Indeed you are! And don’t get all holier-than-thou and say, “Well, somebody’s got to man the store and let you guys know that we’re in for some serious shit. We get it! The oceans are rising. The earth’s people are in deep poo poo. And? What? How much have you changed what YOU are doing?

Here’s an idea. Gather your forces together and storm British Petroleum, Exxon Mobile, Saudi Aramco, National Iranian Oil Co., PetroChina and Royal Dutch Shell among many others that are into both natural gas and oil and don’t forget the fracking industry. Climate change doomsayers, you really need to get off your duff and get cracking ‘cause according to you guys, we ain’t got a lot of time. So, make like Superman, Wonder Woman, Bat Man, Spiderman and go out there and get those oil company executives in line with the understanding that we are all doomed if they don’t reconsider and realize that their greed and our lust for oil and gas and electricity and fast cars and SUVs and all things electronic is just gonna get us into some serious trouble. We’re all fucking hypocrites and the climate change ship has sailed. It has sailed because if you think for one damn minute that some greedy ass oil barons are going to fuck up their bottom line by listening to some hypocrites who are themselves, contributing to climate change, then you all need your head examined and you need to take a look in the mirror and repeat after me, “I am a goddamn hypocrite because I want everyone to stop driving, get off the grid, live in the woods and go back to the basics before it’s too late, but I need to continue driving, stay on the grid, live in my house with all of my creature comforts so that I can continue to tell you guys how fucked you’re all going to be if you don’t DO something about climate change.” There, now that’s telling us!

Get out there and start practicing what you preach and you can’t hardly do that while still pumping gas into your vehicle. You can’t hardly do that while still connected to the grid. You can’t hardly do that if you intend to survive next winter by turning the thermostat up. You can’t hardly do that while cranking the AC up. You can’t hardly do that because you’re a hypocrite. So, I suggest that you sit back, smoke a blunt, if that’s your thing and if not, try a nice chilled glass of wine. And don’t forget, scotch and soda is great on the rocks and you need that icemaker to get that done and to get that done, you’ve got to stay ON the grid, hypocrite! You either go all gung ho about this climate change shit or you just keep pissing in the wind.

We Are FUCKED!

we are fucked one

My poetic pen may be drained, but that doesn’t mean that I cannot write essays on the fact that we are fucked! Yes, we are fucked! What does that mean, you ask? Good that you want to know. Well, I’ll tell you. When the banks are considered too big to fail, we are fucked. The Attorney General of these Divided Snakes Of Amurderer decided that going after the banks would be, in Eric Holder’s own words,

“I am concerned that the size of some of these institutions becomes so large that it does become difficult for us to prosecute them,” Mr. Holder told lawmakers. Prosecutors, he said, must confront the problem that “if you do prosecute, if you do bring a criminal charge, it will have a negative impact on the national economy, perhaps even the world economy. And I think that is a function of the fact that some of these institutions have become too large.”

http://news.firedoglake.com/2013/03/08/attorney-general-holder-says-banks-are-too-big-to-prosecute/

Now, ain’t that something? I thought that the reason why the American taxpayers had to bail out the ‘too big to fail’ banks was because it would stop a global economic collapse. Isn’t that what we were told? Oh and did that stop the collapse? You ain’t heard about economies collapsing all over the world? Where the fuck you been? People are still in their homes because of the bank bailout right? Bank lending is at an all time high, isn’t it? Pay Day Loan agencies are out-of-business because banks are loaning hard-up Americans, loans at reasonable rates, right? The jobless are being hired right on the spot because jobs are just so damn plentiful since the banks were bailed out, hasn’t that been the case? The economy has not only gained traction but is revving up, hot damn!, I’m right? Right? Did not all this come to pass with the bailouts? I mean that was the purpose in bailing out the banks even though the ‘banksters’ had engaged in fraud, money laundering and other dirty deeds. They were going to assure the federal government that Jane and John America would be able to stay in their homes, right? I mean, this is what happened? Uh, no! And that is a big, resounding NO!

“There was no suggestion in the statements of Bush and Paulson of any relief for the working class—nothing to stop home foreclosures or help those who have already lost their homes.”

Yep, the good old Americans who bailed out the fraudsters got FUCKED and the banksters?, oh well, remember…they are too big to fail so they got the bail. You? Not so much. So when our congressional representatives are owned by the banks that are deemed too big to fail, we are fucked.

And next up we have our ever so helpful Emperor by proxy, Despot Obadroner himself lauding the fracking industry.

“The all-of-the-above energy strategy I announced a few years ago is working, and today, America is closer to energy independence than we’ve been in decades,” Obama said during his fifth State of the Union speech on Tuesday.

“One of the reasons why is natural gas, if extracted safely, it’s the bridge fuel that can power our economy with less of the carbon pollution that causes climate change,” Obama said.

Now when the president of the United States during the SOTU announces that natural gas is going to eliminate our dependence on foreign oil, we are fucked because guess what? Fracking is what’s done to get at natural gas and what does fracking do to us?

“The rapid expansion of natural gas drilling across the nation endangers human health and the environment. Nearly all natural gas extraction today involves a technique called hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in which dangerous chemicals are mixed with large quantities of water and sand and injected into wells at extremely high pressure. Fracking is a suspect in polluted drinking water in Arkansas, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming, where residents have reported changes in water quality or quantity following fracturing operations.
http://www.nrdc.org/energy/gasdrilling/

Isn’t that great? If you like being sick and if you just love polluted water, then fracking ain’t a goddamn worry, is it? Now on the other hand, if you value your health, too bad! Kiss it goodbye. Energy is more important. Never mind that that energy comes at a high cost both to our health and to that of the planet that sustains us. No problem, man AND woman, girl, boy, child, baby! Why, we’ll just suck it up and deal with birth defects, cancer, respiratory problems and a whole list of other issues that will soon surface, just you wait. But don’t wait too long ’cause we’re running out of time, see? Or do you?

Wake the fuck up America and realize that we are FUCKED!! Now, just what the hell are YOU gonna do about it? Suck your thumb and pretend to be dumb about it? Well, you can’t! Not if you’ve read this because I’ve educated you apathetic motherfuckers. I just took your goddamn rose colored glasses off, stomped the shit out of ’em and educated you ‘misedumacated’ fuckers! Now take a goddamn look around and tell me, people of the goddamned Divided Snakes of Amurderer, how FUCKED are YOU? And better yet, just when the hell are you gonna cut the bullshit, get with the program and realize that you ain’t got a goddamn future to plan for? Fucking retirement is the last goddamn thing that should be on your complacent ass mind. Wise the fuck up and get with it. The world is going the fuck off. Now, it’s OUR turn, fucking Divided Snakes of Amurderer. Again, what the fuck are you waiting for? To get drone struck? Don’t worry, Emperor Despot Obadroner will get around to your fucking ass, that is if your polluted fracked water don’t get to your ass first. And know this, your goddamn smartphone won’t do you any goddamn good, nor will all your Facebook followers ’cause they’re fucked too, now tweet this shit, complacent motherfuckers!

What Are You Waiting For?

imprisoned

The jobs are never coming back.
So while you sit and wait,
the rich are loving life,
while you bemoan your fate.

They’re fracking in your yard.
The water’s not fit to drink.
Your food is processed junk.
And so into gloom, you sink.

A Shakespeare play, you live and breathe,
what will you give to Caesar?
When everything you own was sold,
and the bank declined your Visa?

Your world looks stark and bleak.
It’ seems you’ll lose your mind.
The bills are overdue.
And a job, you cannot find.

Too ashamed to ask for help,
you’ve reached your breaking point.
The loaded gun is in your mouth.
Oh yes, you hate to disappoint.

Your epitaph will say it all.
“He tried and somehow failed.
Did society kill this man?
Oh no! He gave up and he bailed!”

Who will make it into the headlines next? Who will be the next one to simply give up and give us another version of a ‘bailout’? Who will it be that either join the ranks of the homeless or will put a gun into their mouth? With suicides on the increase, how many more will commit suicide while waiting on the ‘leaders’ of this world to recognize that greed is leading us where no SANE person should ever be forced to go? There are those who are right now, teetering on the brink of committing suicide/homicide because they see no other way out. Many take entire families out before killing themselves because they feel that it is not in their families best interest to be left to plod along as they believe that ALL is hopeless. How many people have to die before the foolish leaders of this world recognize and realize that corporations have a strangle-hold on people, the world over and are using this leverage to deny jobs to older workers who are skilled but cannot find a job for the ‘life’ of them and are forcing young adults to work at minimum wage jobs with no benefits? What about those who have spent years in college and have amassed a mountain of debt in student loans and cannot find a job that will even begin to pay for those loans, much less keep a roof over their heads. This is the ‘new’ reality for many.

Many times, a number of accidents have to occur at a certain intersection or interstate junction resulting in death before steps will be taken to prevent further occurrences. Will this be the case with those who’ve lost it all? Will it take the suicide of a few hundred? A thousand? A million? Before we realize that we have a problem, a really BIG problem and to solve it, we need some BIG changes or else get reconciled to suicide becoming the new ‘bailout’! It has been said that people are a ‘slave’ to debt and though they ‘toil’ every day, they cannot seem to make it out of debt. This is by design and it will continue. Make no mistake. Many societies were built on the backs of slaves and as much as I could say that ‘what comes around goes around, even I am not THAT heartless! Is there really a difference, Prison Industrial Complex Slavery as opposed to Corporate Worker Slavery since we ‘toil’ to pay the corporations for the right to breathe, for the right to purchase and eat the Monsanto Corporation’s genetically modified trash. Either way you look at it, we are ALL in prison! Either we ‘toil’ or we die! You don’t have to actually ‘see’ the bars to know that you are indeed, in prison.

What are YOU waiting for?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which published its findings in the May 3 issue of its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, more people died from suicide than from car accidents.

The stresses of recession and unemployment triggered by the global financial crash of 2008 led to a spike in suicides among men in Europe and North America.

You Don’t Give A Damn About Your Grandkids!

Now take your damn foot out your lying mouth! A 'better' world, indeed! Shelve THAT shit!
Now take your damn foot out your lying mouth! A ‘better’ world, indeed! Shelve THAT shit!

“I want to leave a better world for MY grandkids!” No, you don’t. Because if you did, you could not look your grandkids in the face knowing all the while that you have contributed in many ways to the irreparable damage that is being done to their home, the earth. That which sustains us.

How many of us even glance up when we hear about ‘fracking’ or hydraulic fracturing? How many of us have actually went to a fracking site to act as a human shield until we’re hauled off? Can you just imagine what it would look like if every person who had ever uttered that phrase, “I want to leave a better world for MY grandkids,” actually showed up? Oh, yes! We are SO good at talking the talk, but when it comes down to doing a damn thing about actually trying to leave this godforsaken planet better off for our grandkids, we simply get into our SUVs and head to the mall to buy more useless plastic that we know is detrimental to the health of this planet, but we do it anyway.

Another new mantra, “go green!” And yet, we head to the gas station nevertheless. We crank up the heat and the AC because by doing so, we’re leaving a better world for our grandkids.

“I want to leave a better world for MY grandkids, honey!” Off to shop for the grandkids. Oh, they just need so much. They need a new toy, new clothes, new shoes, new cellphones, new tablets, new this and new that and we don’t even stop to consider that for everything we purchase, there is more than just the purchase price you pay. Some part of this planet is fucked up every time a purchase is rung up. When you hand over that plastic card, this planet suffered for it. Our health suffered for it. Your grandkids health suffered for it and you don’t really give a damn. Your useless platitudes don’t matter. Every time you turn a light on, a power plant has to make sure that power flows to your home because if it doesn’t, you are going to piss and moan about how you pay for service and by all the christians in hell, they’d better turn your shit on, quick fast and in a hurry or you’ll rain down hell fire and brimstone on their ass because you’re leaving a better world for YOUR grandkids, remember?

Who the fuck do you think you’re fooling with that shit you spout about leaving a better world? You’re not even fooling yourself because deep down, you know that once they plant your ass, that’s it, the grandkids can just fend for themselves. The only reason you spout that nonsense is to join in and ‘chorus’ with those who are just like you, the pretenders. Those who pretend to give a damn, but only up to a certain point. The point being when if it inconveniences you in any way, then to hell with the planet and the grandkids, but you’ve got to talk the talk as long as likeminded shits are standing around holding court with you.

Let us not forget that you really showed those grandkids how much you wanted to leave them a better world when they got everything that money could buy for Christmas and you strutted around like a peacock, all full of yourself because you made your grandkids smile when they came over and saw the piles of earth destroying junk underneath a tree that was dug up to accommodate your festive holiday spirit. Never mind that trees supply us with oxygen so that we can take our next breath. And now that tree is lying up against the curb, waiting to get picked up by bulk trash pick-up. How convenient. Much, much too convenient. Because that’s part of the problem. We’ve got too many conveniences and they’ve made us fat, lazy, complacent and apathetic, but we still intend on leaving a better world for our grandkids. We just haven’t gotten around to actually doing anything about it yet and the sad fact is that we never will!

“A mature leafy tree produces as much oxygen in a season as 10 people inhale in a year.” Here are some other quoted figures regarding the amount of oxygen produced by a tree:
“A single mature tree can absorb carbon dioxide at a rate of 48 lbs./year and release enough oxygen back into the atmosphere to support 2 human beings.”

“One acre of trees annually consumes the amount of carbon dioxide equivalent to that produced by driving an average car for 26,000 miles. That same acre of trees also produces enough oxygen for 18 people to breathe for a year.”

http://chemistry.about.com/od/environmentalchemistry/f/oxygen-produced-by-trees.htm

If we start to produce more carbon dioxide than the trees can take in and in turn, produce oxygen, what do you think will happen to that “better world,” you intend to leave for YOUR grandkids? You want new hardwood floors or do you want your grandkids to breathe? Right! You want new hardwood floors! Naturally!

What A Wonderful Holiday!

what wonderful holiday

The NSA is shuttered.
And the drone strikes have ceased.
Peace doth fill the land.
The CIA has left the East.

Snowden is not in exile,
and Manning is free to go.
No war crimes are committed.
Obama closed Guantanamo!

Sequestration’s off the table.
and no benefits are cut.
On the homeless and the poor,
No door is to be shut.

Corporations pay a living wage.
They love their employees.
Weary workers take vacation,
and get sick time when they sneeze.

We need clean air and water,
so they put an end to fracking.
Fukushima never happened.
And the glaciers are not cracking.

Netanyahu grew a heart.
and so the Gaza Strip is fine
US soldiers left Afghanistan,
and Iran is now in line.

Bush and Cheney are in prison.
They are tortured every day.
‘Twas a miracle of Christmas.
What a wonderful holiday!
