The Replay

Humanity has a long history fraught with wars and disputes of all kinds. We have displayed an inability to coexist with others peacefully for any significant length of time. Despite our primal instincts we as human are drawn to order and structure. We quite frankly need to believe in something greater than ourselves in order to function for any length of time as civilized creatures. Throughout that history, we can see many examples of what happens to societies when the power structure breaks down. Humans descend into barbarism that advances to such a degree that those left standing long for a return to order and thus vigilantism gives over to structure and security in a hierarchical form. The catalyst that ignited the fires that incinerated and caused societal barriers to breakdown are forgotten, and humans once again enslave themselves to an idea. Continue reading “The Replay”

The Castaway

Life is a pursuit of happiness for some, and the search for money and power for others and these two goals are not always synonymous with each other. We often find ourselves beginning these journeys without ever knowing ourselves as separate and unique individuals. We copy the behavior that we like and disregard that which is displeasing in other people. Such behavior while viable is a shortcut to existing within the human framework we call society. Living in this manner is detrimental to personal happiness and identity. We all view the world through slightly different lenses, colored with the hue of our own biases and desires. Finding oneself among so much fabrication and betrayal is difficult and a very different journey for each person. Continue reading “The Castaway”

Trade war on the Horizon?

Those of us alive today are no strangers to conflict, now we face what could amount to a trade war that might very well lead to another cold war amongst rival powers. I recently read an article about the potential for new tariffs and a threatened response by China. It seems like a no-win situation for either country as we are the main consumers of Chinese made products and both economies are locked into a symbiotic relationship for better or for worse.  I will post a link to the article below, please share your thoughts.

Today’s America

I remember growing up and learning in school about Republicans and Democrats. I also remember being explained the stark differences between the two parties. I grew older, joined the army and traveled the world. I smelled the stench of politics and political correctness on everything in the service. I got out of the Army and wanted to make a difference in my country. It is demoralizing to see the decay of a great country. This decay has been brought about by corruption and greed. The apathy of the general population is sickening. Far too many people believe everything they are spoon fed by pundits and reporters that are receiving their information from government disinformation agents. Oh does that sound too conspiratorial for you? It’s a fact a simple web search will reveal that propaganda has been legalized for use on the American people. This country was founded to escape tyranny! The criminals that run this country want power and money, they behave like full blown sociopaths. It is all about consolidating power with these people, if they can even be afforded such an honor of that title. This country seems to be heading for implosion. You might ask yourself why would our greedy, heartless leaders let this happen. They are on the top and with a collapse, they have less competition and more power to fuel their god complexes. You have plenty of people that won’t believe a word of this. Then you have the others that say, well there is nothing we can do about it; it has always been that way. This is a straight cop out. We the people are the power of this country. If we willingly continue to play along with the charade of freedom, we will forever be slaves. WE have the power to restore true liberty and freedom in this country!! This apathy is a reflection of the apathy these sociopaths have for us as American citizens. We are commodities to be traded on the stock market. The “Federal Reserve” isn’t a federal organization. It’s a collection of private bankers. They loan money to the government with interest that the government can never hope to pay back. This country was founded and was intended for the congress to have the power to print money. Politics and politicians have degenerated into money making schemes and over-paid prostitutes. A man or woman can’t get elected without the money powers backing them. We have Senators and Congressmen that spend most of their lives in Congress, and it’s not because they are loyal to the people. They are loyal to their pimps! We need term limits and we need those gangsters in their shiny suits to stop printing money for our country!!!!!!!
