“Access” To Insurance Is NOT The Answer

May 3, 2017

I will go against the flow now.
Jimmy Kimmel.
He is a trained actor who is in the pay of a major corporation. His job is to get viewers to do things.
See a specific movie.
Watch a new TV show.
Buy the Swimsuit Issue.
Support the ACA.
For all its pulling at the heartstrings, that monologue of his touting the glories of the ACA amounts to corporate propaganda against Single-Payer, Universal Healthcare.
Nothing works better in marketing than helping children. And that is what this man did.
If his corporate bosses didn’t want you to see this, you would not have seen it.
So at this critical juncture, a corporate millionaire makes a tear-stained plea for the ACA.
No mention of Single-Payer?
It was all about ACCESS to health insurance.
“We were brought up to believe that we live in the greatest country in the world, but until a few years ago, millions and millions of us had no access to health insurance at all. Before 2014, if you were born with congenital heart disease like my son was, there was a good chance you’d never be able to get health insurance because you had a pre-existing condition. You were born with a pre-existing condition. And if your parents didn’t have medical insurance, you might not live long enough to even get denied because of a pre-existing condition.”
With this talk, Kimmel became an insurance salesman.
And he used the standard tricks of the trade, including THINK OF THE CHILDREN.
Look: If you think the only choice is the ACA or Paul Ryan’s plan, then you have been successfully sold.
Kimmel and the other performers did their job.
We need Universal Healthcare.
Not “access” to insurance.

“Never Let Fear Go To Waste” – Corporate Motto

April 18, 2017
Remember when I said that because of the 19 months of intense fear and hysteria deliberately aimed at the American people during the election… it would not be over on election day? By now, it is as clear as a country stream that I was right.
Far too many people allowed themselves to get habituated to the election cycle’s media onslaught of fear, rage, and hysteria and now they just cannot let it go.
They have accepted the fear and rage, they have internalized it. For many Americans, fear and rage are here to stay.
Ever see people who, 25 years after a divorce, still obsess on and on about an ex? That is the condition of many people now. And the whole Russia panic stems from that. Somebody “other” must be to blame because I AM GOOD.
That 19 month orgy of election fear and rage was a calculated, sadistic thing done to Americans for the gain of a small group of people. And if only a small percentage of the public became deranged in the face of this constant barrage of fear and rage, that amounts to millions of people.
We were played.
We were tortured.
We were mind-fucked.
For 19 months.
Prisons are forbidden to do these things to inmates. But corporate media does it to us all. And we are considered “free”.
Corporations make money from fear. Whether they sell us deodorant, guns, or war… fear to them means money in the bank.
“News” ratings (which translate to dollars) skyrocket in war time. You think, knowing that, that media corporations leave war to mere chance?
Yes, America endured a well-coordinated brainwashing for 19 months. And casualties were not just inevitable, they were desired!  Keeping people like this means money. Media barons knew full well that many people cannot walk away from that kind of brainwashing intact. Remember this when you see people who idolize a candidate – and refuse to let go. Saying such insane things as “he” or “she” is THE REAL PRESIDENT.
TV producers and their partners in advertising live to erase reality and replace it with an illusion that benefits their corporations.  And they are highly rewarded for this action.
Why do you suppose someone like Rachel Maddow insists on pushing unproven “reality” theories on her viewers five nights a week? Maddow has 30,000 reasons for doing this – every day.
And she is not alone. We have no idea who writes the things she, and others of her odious ilk, deliver into our homes. We know nothing about these people who continue the fear and rage that was stoked during the election.Nothing except the clear fact that they feed on the fear and rage like vampires feeding on our blood. They live for this. That is their job.

News today has become that guy in the saloon who eggs on two drunks till they beat each other senseless. Nothing ever happens to him, though. Today, international news in American media boils down to that guy saying, “Are you gonna take that from him?”
We desperately need free universal mental health care in this country because we have media corporations dedicated to messing with our minds.
We need it to cope with and repair the damage inflicted by corporate media.
Whether media corporations do this stuff to get us to crave a useless product or they do it to get us to accept the latest war – they are screwing with our minds in an unethical and immoral – but highly profitable way.
And the society we now live in is the result.

Family Dysfunction Persisted

March 21, 2017

As you may have heard by now, noted literary lion Chelsea Clinton has published a new book.
With a speed of hand that would shame Mickey Spillane or Edgar Wallace, the Great Weird Hope of the Clinton dynasty got a book deal (the favored corporate method for bribing people in political life) and in doing so she inadvertently shows us how untreated child-abuse travels through the generations.

The book bears the name SHE PERSISTED, a PR phrase coined to promote another book deal – that one for the already wealthy Senator Elizabeth Warren.

In the Clinton Clan, persisting has a perverse history.

By now, who doesn’t know the story of Hillary as a 4 year-old getting thrown out of the house by her abusive mother? The child had endured taunting from bullies in the park, as most children do, and so she ran home to her mother for comfort and succor. What did this FOUR YEAR-OLD CHILD get instead? As Hillary compulsively relates it over and over again, even 65 years later, her mother had the love and foresight and compassion to… throw her out of the house.
Mother Rodham blamed little Hillary for the situation, said she “gave up” and called her daughter a coward who she would not welcome in the home until THE BABY dealt with the tormentors.
Slam went the door. Does anyone, other than Hillary, really believe this callous treatment had a salubrious effect on the child?

Hillary Clinton has, for the past 65 years, related that story with pride. She says it shaped her character. Well, yes, it did. But not the way she seems to think. To Hillary Clinton, giving up means losing mother’s love and – more to the point – getting kicked out of the house. One can only imagine the depths of fear and anxiety – Separation Anxiety – this “loving mother” sparked in her infant child.

As Dr. Gabor Maté notes: “In an anecdote related by the former Secretary of State herself as an example of salutary character building, four-year-old Hillary runs into her home to escape neighbourhood bullies. ‘There is no room for cowards in this house,’ says her mother, sending the child out into the street to face her tormentors. The real message was: ‘Do not feel or show your pain. You are on your own.’ Over six decades later the candidate hides her pneumonia even from her doctor and from those closest to her. Repeatedly she has overlooked her husband’s outlandish infidelities, defending him against disgrace— no doubt suppressing her own emotional turmoil in the process.”
(Emphasis added)

Hillary Clinton has never received treatment for this early-childhood trauma – and to me, every single time she relates the story she presents a 4 year-old’s repressed cry for help. To this day, Clinton shows an irrational view of the world as a place populated by “bullies” who she, and she alone, MUST stop. She even cited this as her Raison D’être for seeking the Presidency upon receiving the democratic nomination.

And then, in her own words, spoken in her first speech after losing the election, Hillary Clinton had one strong message:

For Mrs. Clinton, 65 years after her mother terrorized her by throwing her out of the only home she knew, giving up – no matter how useless the fight may be – means the loss of love and home.
Sheer stubbornness has become a virtue in Hillary-Land. What manner of person NEVER concedes loss? Or error? Or understands the pragmatic need for a strategic concession to an opponent? I’ll tell you what manner of person: A DANGEROUS PERSON.

Untreated family abuse wends its way down through the ensuing generations. So it came as no surprise to me to see that Chelsea Clinton, an adult-child who owes everything she ever got to her parents, also carries this mania. And in the aftermath of her mother’s embarrassing election loss to a known “bully” and TV game-show host, it falls upon the adult-child to become the mother Hillary wanted but never had. Thus the topic of Chelsea’s new book fits right into mommy’s mania – as the cover makes crystal clear:

The child taking care of the needs of the mother perverts the natural flow of life. Yet this child – at age 35 – has made a career of just that. Making speeches for mother (and in a subtle way sabotaging her in the process – displaying resentment) and even talking of entering politics herself – a clear attempt by a chile to vindicate the family after repeated losses and scandals. I mean, let’s face it, after seeing the sheer hell that BOTH her parents underwent, what child would say “THAT’S the career for me!”? Would Chuck Wepner, Jr. ever consider boxing? Hell, even the NIXON off-spring knew better…

Does Chelsea really see stubbornness as a virtue? Or has she taken up the call simply to soothe her wounded mother? And for god sake WHY peddle this swill to CHILDREN? Can this adult-child not relate her feelings to grown people? I see it as bad enough when family abuse gets passed on through the generations. But to deliberately pass it on to children one does not even know becomes a form of mass abuse. All to justify a mother who has long had the time and ample financial resources to GET THERAPY and change the warped view of the world she brags about carrying… ONE speech to Wall Street would have paid for Hillary’s therapy and then some.

Upon seeing the announcement of this book, I got hit with a wave of sadness. I hoped that Chelsea’s children don’t face similar horrendous abuse. Considering that the abuse has gotten mythologized as “character building,” will Chelsea take the chance to throw her own children out of the house at age 4? Will she do as her grandmother did, and make a mother’s love conditional

If Chelsea sees the delusion of stubbornness as a virtue, and sees it as good enough to spread to countless unknown children through her book – I wonder how she sees her own children? And their children after her? Where does it end. When she has a son, will she name him SUE?

Well, that comprises the problem which the Clintons must one day face. OUR problem, I see as more alarming: We as a nation must learn to stop electing to positions of power those damaged people who still suffer under the weight of untreated childhood abuse. But because of the alarming rate of abuse in America, such wounded and deluded people resonate with the bulk of our neighbors. Possibly even you… or me.

Supreme Court Hysteria… Don’t Buy It!

August 5, 2016

So many people who have only a sketchy idea of how our government operates are quivering in fear over “losing” the Supreme Court. And when that happens ALL OUR RIGHTS WILL BE REPEALED!!!!!

First of all… look at my earlier posts here about FEAR.

People who instill fear in you are playing you. They are manipulating you. They are causing you to FEAR simply to further their own political agenda. There is a word for people who use fear to promote political change: TERRORIST!

So if you are one of those frightened people, take a deep breath and read, because your fears are toothless… BEHOLD:

This may shock some of the people only now paying attention, but the US Supreme Court does not have the final say in anything.

What they do can be undone or even superseded. For over two centuries, our government has had an effective set of CHECKS AND BALANCES which temper radical changes, and prevents any one branch from controlling things. Ask President Obama, who – although wildly popular – cannot get his new right-wing Supreme Court nominee a Senate hearing, and who has had much of his “legacy” tossed out by the courts as unconstitutional.  Those are our checks and balances in action.

You fear: SUPREME COURT WILL ELIMINATE…… whatever your pet cause is…
Well, the court almost never hears cases they have already decided and even Clarence Thomas (put on the court by Democrats!) has often said that they will not reverse “settled law” including Roe v. Wade. To do so would bring utter chaos.

But… what would really happen if they did? Suppose a radical court just decided to reverse all manner things? 

To see what would happen, let’s look at a recent time when the Court actually did eliminate something:

In 1972 the Supreme Court voided all death penalty sentences.
And we have not had a person put to death in America since… right?
Right?
Here is how it works.
The court only says that something violates the constitution, in their majority opinion. Not whether it is good or bad, right or wrong. So let’s say they opine that Same Sex Marriage is unconstitutional AS WRITTEN.
Then the laws get re-written. Or, and here is something lawyers know but most citizens do not: Local jurisdictions CANNOT give fewer or less legal rights than the Federal Government does but they CAN give MORE rights than the federal government.
So even if Same Sex Marriage is rejected by SCOTUS, your state and all the states can do it anyway.
And going by the decision that threw it out, the states will tailor the law to survive a court challenge.
Then it will be allowed.

Just as they reintroduced the death penalty.

But it takes… Work.

Hitting the streets. Lobbying. Organizing. And yes, many people worked hard for the right to kill people. Can you work that hard for life-affirming laws you support?

Remember: The Supreme Court is but one PART of one of THREE co-equal branches of our government.
They do not have the final say. Not by a long-shot.
Ask anyone on death row.

The Clintons and Plantation Politics

April 15, 2016
hillary-clinton-old-hag-7

*****

There is a big swing Sanders will soon take against Clinton and she knows it is coming. Yet I predict she will be compelled to walk right into it; even force Sanders to use it.
Both Clintons cling to the patronizing, condescending, extremely White supremacist notion that Black people in America are either criminals or crime victims, all of whom desperately need help to stand on their own two feet. All Black youth are “inner city” denizens who live “at risk.”
In Clintonian America, Black people seem to have a very narrow range of concerns. When Sunday rolls around and the Clintons inflict themselves on every Black church from New England to the Mason Dixon Line, what do they talk about?
Will they ever take to the pulpit to discuss international trade? Global warming? GMOs? Health care? Regime Change (including Honduras) which the Clintons so love? The decline of the bees, so vital to agriculture? No. The message is always about crime, welfare, and “at risk” youth.
And if, at these events, a few Black persons should have the gall to rise up and show offense – then the Clintons erupt is an orgy of self-congratulation about all the Black people they saved from either a life of crime or from the bullets of criminals.
Here is Bill when challenged by BLM:
“I had an assault weapons ban in it [the crime bill]. I had money for inner-city kids, for out of school activities. We had 110,000 police officers so we could keep people on the street, not in these military vehicles, and the police would look like the people they were policing. We did all that. And [Joe] Biden [then senator and chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee] said, you can’t pass this bill, the Republicans will kill it, if you don’t put more sentencing in it.”
This is how Hillary and Bill always frame their appeal to African Americans.

And when she makes the inevitable strident attack on the Sanders civil rights record, he will take that swing I mentioned above:
Madam Secretary, I refuse to be criticized on the issue of Civil Rights by a former proud Goldwater Girl.

I believe Mrs. Clinton will invite this retort willingly – so that she can then comfortably and conveniently blame her loss on “that one damn Goldwater line Sanders said about me,” and not blame it on the clear fact that people just don’t want her, and don’t like her, and certainly do not trust her.

 

Why Is This Discussion STILL NEEDED?

October 23, 2015
Abortion. Freedom of choice. Telling women what they may or may not do concerning their own bodies.
This is still a concern for many of us.
And it should be, because many politicians oppose reproductive freedom.
Why does one noted politician think it is right to say things like this:
The decision to have an abortion is between “a young woman, her family, her physician and pastor.”
Her PASTOR? Really?
Or:
Abortion is “a sad, even tragic choice to many, many women. There is no reason why government cannot do more to educate and inform and provide assistance so that the choice guaranteed under our constitution either does not ever have to be exercised or only in very rare circumstances.”
What good is a right if it is NOT exercised?
Who says that about ANY OTHER right?
Freedom of Speech should “
not ever have to be exercised or only in very rare circumstances.”
Or:
Abortion should be “safe, legal and rare, and by rare I mean rare.”
Will there be an acceptable National Abortion Quota?
Would any other right be so easily and glibly dismissed?
Free speech should be safe, legal and rare, and by rare I mean rare.
Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness should be safe, legal and rare, and by rare I mean
rare.
Here is another comment from a politician. Do you support this view?
“I for one respect those who believe with all their heart and conscience that there are no circumstances under which abortion should be available.”
One politician had THIS exchange with an anti-choicer:
“I know you’re pro-choice, but you have indicated that you would like to reduce the number of abortions. Could you see yourself, with millions of voters in a pro-life camp, creating a common ground, with the goal ultimately in mind of reducing the decisions for abortion to zero?”
The politician nodded, telling attendees of the nationally televised event: “Yes, yes.”
A politician also said THIS about wanting to END ABORTION if the republicans ALLOW her:
“I am where I have been, which is that if there’s a way to structure some kind of constitutional restriction that takes into account the life of the mother and her health, then I’m open to that. But I have yet to see the Republicans willing to actually do that, and that would be an area, where if they included health, you could see constitutional action.”
REMEMBER:
When they say rare – they mean NEVER.
And who said these things?
SHE did: the last time she ran for president. And lost.
6a00d834515c5469e201b7c77c51c5970b
So it’s 8 years later and time for her to whistle a different tune.
I will vote for someone who will protect the right of ALL women to control their bodies. Without interference from a government that will “provide assistance so that the choice guaranteed under our constitution either does not ever have to be exercised or only in very rare circumstances.”
Or involve her Pastor

Medicine KILLED Robin Williams

November 13, 2014

Robin_Williams_Canada

It is the leading cause of death.
And now it reportedly killed Robin Williams.

From the official report on Mr. Williams’ death: “The condition [Lewy Body Dementia], coupled with his Parksinon’s and the medication he was taking to combat it, causes hallucinations.”

The key words here are AND THE MEDICATION HE WAS TAKING.

Further, the report says, “Lewy Body Dementia is… exacerbated by Parkinson’s medication.” Exacerbated is a $10 word for “made worse.” People taking the medication experience hallucinations such as “phantom objects, people or animals. The patients often try to converse with the illusions.”

OFTEN… often… This is not only common, it happens OFTEN

And yet the drug is administered and meant to be taken for life. Allopathic medicine, which is the dominant form of treatment currently, tries to match a particular drug for a given disease – no matter who is suffering.  This system is less than a century old.  Yet now, death by medicine and medical treatment is THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN AMERICA. A conservative estimate puts the annual American deaths by medicine at 783,936. By way of comparison, in 2001 699,697 died of heart disease. 553,251 succumbed to cancer. This puts death by medicine way in the lead.

Now, according to the official report, we can add the beloved actor and comedian Robin Williams to the list of those who suffered an iatrogenic death (iatrogenic – adjective: of or relating to illness caused by medical examination or treatment).

I am not saying avoid western allopathic medicine. Just educate yourself and question the doctors at every single step of the process. And always remember that medical treatment is now the leading cause of death in our culture. History shows that once the pharmaceutical industry got hold of, and invested in, medical schools early in the 20th Century, the treatment paradigm shifted from curing disease to keeping people on medication for life and using one method of treatment, one drug, for everyone.  What happened to identifying an illness and curing the patient?  What happened to healing?  Now, to the delight of drug companies, doctors identify an illness, announce that you will suffer for life and need to take pills that can cost hundreds – even thousands – of dollars a month. Drugs are now more expensive than ever before in history, and medicine no longer concentrates on cures and healing, focusing instead on making life-long customers for drug companies. Why did it happen? That is easy to answer: Money. There’s tons of money in keeping people on costly drugs for life, especially when the price of the drug always goes up.  As a middle-aged man myself, just a few years younger than Mr. Williams was at the time of his death, it still shocks medical professionals when they see that I am on no medications. They simply do not understand it. To them, aging is something that in and of itself requires treatment. Chronic treatment. Costly treatment. Permanent treatment. I know people younger than I am who take over eight medications a day. The chances of a bad interaction when taking that many drugs is… 100%.  And forget about “side-effects.”  Any honest medical practitioner will tell you that there is no such thing as a side-effect. That expression is a term of art, a euphemism, to describe anything that a drug does that doctors don’t want it to do. 

KILLER DRUGS APPROVED THEN WITHDRAWN

Think of all the wonder drugs, peddled relentlessly on TV and in magazines, that end up killing people by the thousands. All were first approved by the FDA – which does absolutely no testing, relying on the drug companies for that. Then, when the bodies pile up, the FDA pulls the drug and people say with a note of triumph, “The system works.”
The list of drugs approved then withdrawn from the market when proven to be deadly, is staggering. Sometimes, deadly drugs are yanked from American markets yet still sold over-seas. What is that if not deliberate homicide?
CLICK HERE for another list of 35 drugs horrendous approved then yanked…

The western medical system is fine, a far as I am concerned, for acute issues. A broken leg. Kidney stones. Heart by-pass surgery. You know… plumbing. But the idea that we should all BEWARE of “restless leg syndrome” and then get drugged for life is just bilking people. That is why you see so many drugs advertised on TV. I have talked with doctors who now regularly have to educate patients who come to them demanding a certain drug. One urologist I spoke to said he spent time explaining to a woman who came to see him that she did not in any way, shape, or form need a prescription drug for prostate problems. The woman was his mother-on-law. It may sound like a funny story, but this is what to expect when drugs are marketed directly to people like business markets candy bars. Mass media exists to create a need and they succeed alarmingly well.

WHERE DO THE NEW DISEASES COME FROM?

Many years ago the brilliant comedian Victor Borge joked about his uncle who went bankrupt because “he invented a cure for which there was no disease.” Today, that is no longer a gag. Pharma invents diseases and syndromes that they then claim can be treated by drugs that are, just by coincidence, losing their patent protection. Coming up with a new use for a drug extends the patent and thus its exclusive income stream. Recently the industry suffered a huge loss when India revised its patent system to allow for generics. Is it any wonder then that here, in America, generic prices are now soaring (see link above)?

Most important, as that woman in the urology office shows, when you encounter western medicine these days, you need to do your homework. This happened to me: I have a perfectly nice doctor. He and I talk things over and I command his time, refusing to be seen in just 10 minutes, as the office managers mandate. With my body, I take my time. And his. In spite of this care, even he prescribed a medication for me that, it turned out, is FATAL for people who have a particular digestive problem. I have that digestive problem, and he knew it. But his books said that people who formulate kidney stones should take this drug so he prescribed it. I looked at the information put out by the drug company itself and found the danger. Right there in print. Not from some hysterical “new age” website, but from the drug makes themselves. 
My doctor could have killed me.
And mine would have been yet another iatrogenic death.
Last year, after “routine surgery,” I picked up what is call an “HAI” (Hospital Acquired Infection) that landed me in the hospital, in ever-weakinging condition, for over a week. This is so common that now, under the Affordable Care Act, hospitals are no longer allowed to charge patients for such treatment in an effort to cut down on such infections.
This makes twice, in a single year, that I almost died as a result of medical care. TWICE. In one year.
As I mentioned above, the current allopathic system of medicine is barely a century old – yet systems used successfully for centuries, such as Ayurvedic medicine, are trivialized as “alternative.” Don’t you believe it. There is more to healing than a lifetime of drug taking.

For a look at disease and medicine from another, older perspective, here is a book that dates back to the dawn of the modern pharmaceutical-dominated system.

Don't Say We Were Not Warned

Don’t Say We Were Not Warned

If you are at sea over the recent mid-term elections, I suggest you reach back to 1996 and re-read this book by Al Franken, now Senator Franken, to see the process of the dumbing down of the electorate right back at the start.
As Franken notes – and which should have horrified everyone – the people who get their information from conservative “news” shows think of themselves as highly informed, but they are actually THE MOST IGNORANT of all voters.
Read this again and ask yourself if we were not adequately warned…

What “Outbreak”?

October 24, 2014
This Dimwit Says Ebola Fever Is Obama's Fault. But I Heard Somebody MORE STUPID THAN HE IS!

This Dimwit Says Ebola Fever Is Obama’s Fault. But I Heard Somebody MORE STUPID THAN HE IS!

Well, last night I heard the single most incompetent “expert” talking on the radio about – yes – Ebola Fever.
First off, this twit “debunked” as false the notion that nobody is infected until they get a high fever and stomach pain. He wondered why people make this claim. “Viruses don’t work that way,” he said. He said it is nonsense. OF BLOODY COURSE IT IS NONSENSE! The dope confused CONTAGIOUS with INFECTED. And, yes… those who contract Ebola Fever are not – REPEAT NOT – contagious until they are so deep into the disease that they cannot get around let alone go bowling.

Then this bonehead said this “outbreak” will be like the 1918 flu epidemic which killed AND I QUOTE: “fifty-two hundred million people.” That is 5.2 BILLION people. Neat trick when the world population in 1917 was 1.85 billion (1,849,769,000 to be precise). And look: TWO PEOPLE getting a disease while tending a sick person is not an outbreak. That is it for now… ONLY TWO – 2 – AMERICANS CONTRACTED THIS DISEASE HERE. More Americans have married Elizabeth Taylor.
Do NOT pay any attention to the people who deliberately spread fear and/or who are FUCKING IDIOTS.

And though it may disappoint the more nervous among us, you may want to read THIS ARTICLE which explains why you will not get this disease…

Now: as to that alleged 70% death rate? FORGET IT. That is for a Third World nation ravaged by war without adequate food and water – with one doctor per 200,000 people. IN AMERICA and other “modern” nations – for a person with adequate hydration and diet the death rate of this disease is 20%.

Your parents or grandparents knew what an outbreak REALLY was. They faced polio every goddamn year, and smallpox and diptheria and waves of both influenza and pneumonia (before we had any antibiotics!) without shitting their pants like hysterical babies. So if they could deal with that, YOU can deal with a new disease that has so far hit only TWO Americans. Good grief, FLU will kill 45,000 Americans this year. Does that worry you? Did you even bother to get a flu shot?

Do NOT give in to fear and fear mongers. Using fear is nothing new. The TV “news” people use fear to boost their ratings and make more money. Fear is their stock-in-trade. And they spread it rich and thick like manner  in a Iowa cornfield. They scare you out of greed and in order to control you. Apparently, it works.
An excellent book was written about this back in 1919 – you know, back after 5.2 billion people died… Ha! The book has been reissued and I wrote the all-new foreword. I recommend it. Click the image to read about it.

LATE NEWS: One of only TWO people to contract Ebola Fever in the USA is just fine! Read about it HERE.
As I noted in above, in a modern culture not ravaged by war and pestilence, Ebola Fever has an 80% survival rate.
 
Dallas nurse Nina Pham is one of only TWO people to contract the disease in the USA yet people are scared to death. This is insanity in action.

Judge harshly ANYONE you know who fears Ebola Fever in the USA. People THAT easily frightened are easily manipulated and they are extremely dangerous.

Stop Improving Things!

March 8, 2014

THIS IS IMPORTANT

Has it occurred to you yet that, ideologies aside, ALL the troubles of humanity since the dawn of what we call civilization have been caused by people trying to improve things? We hate the dark, so we invent candles, which lead to the improvement called electric lights, which pollute the air and surround us with magnetic radiation and then nuclear plants and THREE MILE ISLAND! FUKUSHIMA! Why? All because we are the ONLY ANIMALS ON EARTH who refuse to accept that the world gets dark at night. So now we have 24 hour light. Was it worth it?

Why does the human animal have to improve the world when all other animals live in it the way it is, not the way they think it should be? I agree with those who say that civilization is a HUGE mistake. There is nothing that is wrong with the world now that PEOPLE didn’t cause in an attempt to improve the world. Think about it. No other animals have screwed things up making life “better” or wasted any time arguing about how to do it. Only humanity.

All our troubles have come from people who honestly thought they were making things better. That is the basis of all political arguments: who has the BEST way to make things better. We had things in perfect order and harmony, like all other creatures on the earth! Only WE had to improve things….

I don’t care a whit if you are RIGHT or LEFT or CENTER. All your proposals to improve things ever since the dawn of time have resulted in the world the way it is now. So why should we turn to the very process which screwed things up… to fix things? We had life very good before the improvements. We had food growing out of the ground. We lived together. But then people invented money and then greed took over. Even Chimps, as new studies show, share what they have with other chimps. Why are we not as smart as a chimp? All the talk about equitable distribution of wealth, pro and con, misses the point: WE DON’T NEED ANY WEALTH! We had everything, just as the lion or the hippo or the dolphin has everything. We did live in the same world as they. Do they slave away at a job they hate? Do they envy people who amass more THINGS than they do? No! So why do we? BECAUSE PEOPLE TRIED TO IMPROVE THINGS. Now we waste time and energy repairing the improvements. Every situation that politicians talk about fixing is something that people broke in the first place. What did the Rabbi Jesus say? “Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

Old Jesus was describing the natural order of things. We had everything we needed at the dawn of humanity. But along come people with ways to MAKE THINGS EASIER and they screwed it all up. I have met people who worked their asses off trying to find an easy way to get what they want. But they don’t even know WHY THEY WANTED THAT in the first place?

The GARDEN OF EDEN is a symbol of the perfection we lived in before we tried to improve things. Humanity collapses once we OPEN OUR EYES TO IMPROVEMENTS. “I cannot eat from this tree? Ok. I WILL eat from it and see what happens.” Modern civilization is what happened. The myth of the Hebrews bears a strikingly important message about improving things. Do the improvements EVER whorl out? Look at the world around you and answer that for yourself. It has nothing to do with CONSERVATIVE or PROGRESSIVE. Both positions are fighting over who has the best way to improve things when… WE SHOULD NOT HAVE IMPROVED THINGS IN THE FIRST PLACE! It is the improvements that we now fight over improving. This is what Stanley Kubrick meant with his famous JUMP CUT in 2001: A Space Odyssey:

We have NOT changed, just our technology has changed. We are STILL AT THE DAWN OF MAN, even today. All that has actually changed are the tools. And the problems those tools gave us. Such as… WAR.
It is worth noting that in 2001: ASO, technology – that is, improvement – is intimately linked with death and murder. So much so that the first “machine” is used by the proto-human not just to kill for food, but to commit the first murder (Cain/Abel), and by the end of the film a machine turns to murdering people. The machine, like Pinocchio before him, has indeed “become” human.

We do not need to fix the problems caused by all the improvements in the world, we need to get AROUND the problems to return to a form of existence without the things we did to rectify things. Try letting your home get dark at night. Try living in harmony with nature. This is hard when you have to commute 2 hours a day, or pay out thousands of dollars a month just to survive. I know. HERE IS A TRUE STORY:

A close friend of mine was THE BIGGEST STAR IN SHOW BUSINESS in the early 1960s. He had everything that people claim to desire. He was young, not yet 25, rich, had millions of dollars, and he was quite famous. Then something happened in the world and his career ended LITERALLY OVER NIGHT. Soon he descended into drugs and self-destruction. Knowing this was killing him, he GAVE AWAY ALL HIS MONEY and MOST OF HIS BELONGINGS. He kept a VW mini-bus (it WAS the Sixties, after all) and a HUGE tent. He was going to drive from Los Angeles to Maine and live in the tent. He would finance the drive across country by playing music in bars and restaurants across the country. He used the name Johnny Sunday. So before he did this, he said farewell to friends. One friend, a fabulously wealthy Hollywood producer, listened to his plans and said, “Wow. Just drive off and live in a tent in the woods… I sure wish I could afford to do that.” AFFORD TO DO THAT?!?!?! My friend did that because he HAD NO DAMN MONEY AT ALL! He had stripped his life down to the bare essentials and went off to experience existence as naturally as he could in this insane world. But his friend COULD NOT AFFORD TO DO THAT! So I ask you, did they live in the same world? Apparently not. My friend’s eyes opened and he saw that the artificial life we have created is what was killing him. His producer buddy did not. And never did. My friend was later considered a mystic, at best, a fucking nut at worst. But the people who had so much, and so deeply bought into the civilized world ENVIED HIM. Tom Hanks paid him enough to buy a house in Florida just for the rights to his story, which Hanks never filmed. I was with him when actor John Goodman said he simply had to learn the “secret” of life from him – Goodman never ever spoke to him about anything after that meeting. We get what we are trained to want and then what do we have? Nothing half as good as the lion or the hippo or the dolphin. Don’t worry about “which side” has the best ideas for fixing things. NONE OF THEM DO. Malcolm Forbes was just as wrong as Karl Marx.

Look at the news: it is filled with people ARGUING about fixing things that people ruined in the first place. True change and peace will not come from fixing society. It will come from inside. It will come when you see that the artificial environment we created is killing you. You say I am wrong? I am using MODERN TECHNOLOGY to communicate with you, so I am a hypocrite? Ha! I would not NEED to use this technology had people not improved things! I am using the very mistake we have made to POINT OUT THE MISTAKES. Most of you will resist this knowledge. Just like the Hollywood producer I mentioned above. Some of you will react violently to what I say. This is what PSYCHIATRISTS (and we are the ONLY animals who need them!) call “A Significant Reaction.” It signifies something about the way you see the world. USE IT!  EXAMINE HOW YOU SEE THINGS!  You are born into a false reality and trained from childhood to accept it as though it were natural. But it is hurting you. STRESS? ANXIETY? FEAR? WORRY? You were not meant to suffer these ills. CIVILIZATION imposed them upon you. And now the mere attempt to fix these problems CREATES THE STRESS AND FEAR AND WORRY. But we call it POLITICS.

You do not need to fix society to have the real power that awaits you when you see what life REALLY is. You already have the power. Many people do not even know the power they have – NATURALLY! – in their own brain and mind.  I know what I can and cannot do AS A HUMAN BEING. I have written about it in this book:
