Again—Off To War We…

21Are the unemployed—lazy? No!  Why does a connected person make this vacuous claim? Entertaining if you are well-off; however, too many of these folks forget that they are lucky-liars. Presently, sixty-nine percent of America agrees that Washington (as in the government) see everyone wishing to become employed become employed (able to find a job)…How about finding a job that supports a small family—living wages for the wage-equals keeping them in poverty and as under-educated as is possible?

It is pathetic these people of money still believe  ‘free market’ will provide jobs. Remember; corporations are legally not people and are ‘hiding’ trillions of dollars and paying wage-slaves as little as possible to still be able to sell their wares to the slaves of low-wages and lowering hope. Does a ‘law-of-diminishing-returns’ ultimately follow? Yes! When the base of a tree shatters—down falls the tree—even the green of tree’s leaves. Natural is the shattering and natural is the Revolution…

Is the economic world ‘flat’? Or is just the top of this mountain squared off and pitched upward…Ledges are hard to climb over and greased governments angle away from the Working People of America.

If the world’s people have equal chances to succeed than why are so few being called powerful and wealthy? Rulers look the same…They all lie-steal-cheat and owe those placing them in positions of power…Call them presidents, senators, congressmen, dictators, kings and other names religious or blah-blah-blah.

All the same people and all the same twisted words-news-entertainment-and reasons to be so placed and into what they pretend to commit. Let us sing a number or two! Between five – twenty percent of Americans are successful. Of all wealth in the USA (non-home-owned wealth) these chosen few account for around ninety-two percent of all this wealth…The mountain-top is flat and the valley is lower than that road-rut to a summit?

Is it true that America is nearing the bottom of that pile of upwardly-economical and mobile? Of course and the separation between need and have is a million-mile chunk of empty space. Every minute it becomes harder to cross and from the Castle-mounted hard to see! Greed does not reach across humanity; it destroys nations-peoples-hopes-dreams and ultimately government…Can you hear a Revolution coming?

If you are a successful member of the favored society and claim to be self-made then remember; your sweet mother spun you into existence-carried-you-to-term and hurt as you clawed you self-made presence from her womb. You are also a white male-type-educated and fortunate to be born into the wealthiest nation on earth at a time when production was ‘grand.’ ‘Summertime-And the livin’ is easy -Fish are jumpin’ -And the cotton is high -Your daddy’s rich-And your mamma’s good lookin’…by George Gershwin

You were able to climb aboard a fast moving and powerful engine of industry and technology.   Federal funding was available everywhere and a few wars kept the machine jimmy-jamming…LFSGD! Through research everything grew and unbridled wealth was enjoyed by a few—And! The lies of the American Dream were still—oops, can you hear a Revolution coming?

Did US president number four actually fear the Industrial War Machine?

“Of all the enemies to public liberty, war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds are added to those of subduing the force of the people. The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes and the opportunities of fraud growing out of a state of war, and in the degeneracy of manners and of morals engendered by both…No nation could reserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare. Those truths are well established. They are read in every page which records the progression from a less arbitrary to a more arbitrary government, or the transition from a popular government to an aristocracy or a monarchy.”—James Madison, “Political Observations,” April 20, 1795

James Madison was an aristocrat and slave owner. Wondering if founding fathers did spin tales from double tongues and savage intentions…

Presently; we still love parades and pageantry and tales about the rich and famous. Why? Maybe we will someday become ‘almost famous’ or almost rich or just almost…Mile wide emptiness and growing. Those few chosen will soon not see us or hear our cries.

Will they still expect our deaths for causes and foundations and reasons and rhythms we ultimately will not understand? The hungry and the sick and the tired sometimes raise to revolution and another chance for real freedom, not songs and bells and another war for no reasons but ‘maybe…’

Pick another foe—why not another nation of people on this precious world we call Earth…Why not the good people of? They are children and mothers and fathers and grand-folks? They are living members of this World? They do have the right of self-determination?

America is the only nation on this sweet world to ‘nuke’ two living cities into rubble. Must have made a statement or two and when time becomes hard-times nothing better than another war to keep us regular folk; fearful-busy-sad-productive and confused. Governing through fear is better than a Revolution-eh?

And! Beautiful you are…

Flawed Democracy Times Three…

librabluetoliteToday…Government must be… ‘The Way of  Humane Authority.’

Therefore…Democracy is a flawed ideal. Why? It is based upon the sovereignty of the people. It is government granting power to democratically elected representatives. It is a government of more than one source of legitimacy…Presently! The multiplicity of our Senate and Congress cancels one another. Add a horror show: Of Democrats-Republicans-Tea Bangers…Oh my!

Practicing…Democracy creates problems. The interests and desires of the electorate are political choices. Moral issues develop: the majority may wish for; racism-imperialism-colonialism-fascism or… Short-term interests and solutions override the long-term interests of all mankind. Greed and Waste and War.

War… ‘What it is good for?’ It ends life too quickly. Innocence dies! History is a rewrite! The graciousness’ of living—gone! Young men and women fight and die…Hearts-do-break! We love our children! Religion not needed! Christ–What a Blur-Job…Once Truth existed? When and Where and How?

Money’s…Interests are political interests and are the priority of the Incumbent.  America (with democratically invested state governments) is unable to develop and sustain independent energy sources and our internal resources. Curbing energy usage? Without responsible (Humane Authority), the incumbent government of the moneyed electorate destroys the future choices of future generations…WOW!

Humane Authority…Examines political legitimacy. It is not ‘the peoples’ thoughts regarding their leaders. It is the true examination of a Ruler/President/Prime Minister/Governor/Mayor/Judge/Congressional/Senatorial and whatever. Let us; determine if he or she has the right to be a ruler (elected or not).

Criteria…Legitimacy through knowledge of the Earth, the Heavens and the People…Easy!

America…Practices a government called Democratic Capitalism. It is a combination of all things Social-Economical-Political. When successful, this ideology is a tripartite of democratic polity; Free markets, Fiscal responsibility and Balance.

The Economic Engine…Is supported by the capitalist-free-market-economy. Jobs are many and all people have employment. The people of a Capitalist Democracy become ‘through hard work’ a prosperous people…’We, the People in order to form!’

Truth…Capitalism is an impossible taskmaster. The Greed of Destruction is the method of governance. So! Short is the time of a Capitalist Democracy. Quickly; this is changed into Authoritarian Capitalism. Government is a tripartite of: Special Interest Groups, Corporate Lobbyists and Money…Koch (Coke) Brothers, etc.

We are…The grip of terror. This is the time of blurred vision and lies. This is the time of pathetic sound-bites and pathetic News-Shows in four-part harmony. And! Blah-Blah-Blah…

Revolution…Is the reality. Truth! Socialism is a movement forward. The Union of Laborers and Professionals…Easy?

And! Beautiful you are…

La Serrata…

Under attack here…Economy, Unions, Education-(Koch’ coke’ Brothers) and the further destruction of our precious middle-class and the way of life enjoyed here in this place for a few years…Without wars and its profits we diminish into a hungry-crowded-mass, shivering in the doorways of a thousand snow covered cities or towns or villages or neighborhoods. Without jobs that pay what… for which or what hope or my future or yours or our hopes as a people or a nation or a World. Let us keep this separated and scattered and confused except for us—the greatest people on Earth…Oh no! We did say the Elitists?

It is not the Muslim or the Christian we fear. It is not the people or the immigrants or the outside nationalities. It is the changing of life and a saturation of places and people to blame. Newsy! Everyday explanations in a million words and verses of the virtual excitement of the blame-of-game and oops—we have another one. Call it a lost debate…Call it a loss of future. Call it hunger and thirst. She is beautiful. He is handsome. She is rich. He is famous…And! Who gives a.…?

Venice was once a powerful city of commerce and opportunity and education and craftsmanship and medicine and science…Gone and almost forgotten. Now! In this country, the one percent are building the latest and greatest castles. By adding motes and security they gain separation. Keep others away from our wealth and destroy anyone from a brush-at-arms-length and we remain the most powerful and richest country  on the planet. Which Planet? Does anyone really know? Must the hungry folk care? And! We call it news when one pretender does unto someone other than wife or husband or cat or dog or..? Who cares!

The truth in entertainment is not entertaining. Anything entertaining is notably bereft of truth. If we require truth—we must be living and dying every day? No fun and no hope and nothing except a show called…..at 10:00 PM.

Note: However, someplace hidden well inside the comedy of life is a smattering of truth. Oh! Just here or there or once-in-a-while. Search and you may find and do not let the rhythm of the night cause you to dance by yourself.

We! Are the watchers of the single percent of wealth? We are a twin political country. Our duo political entities have practiced the sport of La Serrata since the two became either vote for me or vote for them or lose” called freedom in America. Freedom of what-who-where-why and how?

The one percent has destroyed opportunities of commerce for new or incoming entities…The common-world already wage-slaves a life away to furnish the finest for the fewest.

Many names are used to describe the elite of this planet. Sadly, they are so involved in self-interest that La Serrata will be their final conclusion. Come out from the doorways and the rain and the snow…Closure always fails! American strength developed because America was an opened place. Through closure, America has already failed us!  Is it not entertaining to be locked outside in the cold?

And! Beautiful you are…

A Here and After…

What is a representative American group? America is a melting pot. Are we melting or diluted just enough to seem civilized? Our influences are creations. These creations are combinations of  causes and effects ad infinitum. We blend these until yes and no is our very own thing. We are the country. America is a ridiculous hodgepodge creature created not to move but destined to fly. We are from different places and from a variety of beliefs, abilities, fears, sorrows, happiness, shrieking madness and terrifying constructions. We are put together with a lot sweat and too much battling whimsy and all the other things, spicy and nice and not recognized by any eye.

All of us have the freedom to explore and improvise within an uncertain framework.  So! Do we improvise with words?

Then Shift to:

Fear of not noticing this life and this death. No! For he is fondly remembered and has not been fondly remembered by all of us that knew him. He is sure that they cannot remember his name. For he has forgotten many of those faces that had trusted their images to his memory. He has also forgotten those places  trusted to be static and not revolving around stationary constucted worlds. How many imaginary worlds spin around an imaginary sun? He has always been an alien not wishing to intrude but longing to belong. Is acceptance another loss within a simple victory?

Presently, he does not enjoy the stares of strangers or laughter when not with him but about him. He has often been too frightened by an overwhelming jumble of sensual adjustments. He has always been a waif, alone and among many and wanting to go home.  Among us, he is a familiar spirit, a mirror we stare into and recognize when the moons have disappeared into the light of an ancient dawn.

Ships of Sails and Seagulls

Guns and cannons and the smoke of Battle drifted in a blinding fog across both water and the fortress hill high and damaged. Presently, three ships down and seven to continue war and to win! And to destroy the fortress and the harbor towns of two and the needless destruction of every soul and body left alive and standing upright.

Such is War! And from waterside the cannons of fortress and town slam shells and exploding balls of death upon us and they and us and not us. A ship pitches, of wood and steel and souls, toward sinking-side filled with mast into splinters and holes enough to die.

Such is war and this sinking ship traps living body until free, this body pushes away from death by drowning and drowns just before the sunlight and the surface. Across the thick smoke of battle and from the water butterflies and water beetles and the purple color of birds emerge from this fog and race toward heaven, joined by souls and flying life and from the color of purple into the gull-white.

We! From heaven once joined the Earth and now we again, fly away from battle and into those places where war is observed and the dead and dying escape this war to fly and to watch and to leave…
