On Socialism

Socialism is a system which makes the corporate unity of society responsible for all its economic processes, or all those affecting life and essential living. If anything important is sold, the Government has sold it; if anything important is given, the Government has given it; if anything important is even tolerated, the Government is responsible for tolerating it. This is the very reverse of anarchy; it is an extreme enthusiasm for authority. It is in many ways worthy of the moral dignity of the mind; it is a collective acceptance of very complete responsibility… A Socialist Government is one which in its nature does not tolerate any true and real opposition. For there the Government provides everything; and it is absurd to ask a Government to provide an opposition.

You cannot go to the Sultan and say reproachfully, “You have made no arrangements for your brother dethroning you and seizing the Caliphate.” You cannot go to a medieval king and say, “Kindly lend me two thousand spears and one thousand bowmen, as I wish to raise a rebellion against you.” Still less can you reproach a Government which professes to set up everything, because it has not set up anything to pull down all it has set up. Opposition and rebellion depend on property and liberty… The critic of the State can only exist where a religious sense of right protects his claims to his own bow and spear; or at least, to his own pen or his own printing press. It is absurd to suppose that he could borrow the royal pen to advocate regicide or use the Government printing presses to expose the corruption of the Government. Yet it is the whole point of Socialism, the whole case for Socialism, that unless all printing presses are Government printing presses, printers may be oppressed.

Everything is staked on the State’s justice; it is putting all the eggs in one basket. Many of them will be rotten eggs; but even then you will not be allowed to use them at political elections.

All of my life I never heard a trance song better than this

The Beauty of Black Holes


Singularity comes to everyman
who enters your orbit
which for those with
2020 vision
is about 7 meters
Most men can work
the problem and find the exhaust
me I fell right into
your heart
with no chance of
not being
star crossed

Black holes of beauty
breaking men's hearts
Black holes of beauty
something men
do not understand
a phenomena
that tears us apart

When beauty absorbs everything
there is no sunlight
just phenomenal eyes
the last thing you see
before you transition
from human
into the unexplored physics
of love
in a black hole

Angel Touch the Sky


Angel what you reaching for
you know I think
you can touch the sky

Angel what you reaching for
seems to me your already
pretty high

Angel what you reaching for
you know I would never
just ask  you why?

Angel what you reaching for
why make that stretch
why make your pretty wings
fly in such turbulence

Angel what you reaching for
you touched my hand
a lifetime ago
therefore
everyday I fly
I soar
Your Angel 
can touch the sky

English Folk Singing English Folk 1


The greatest living interpreter of English or any other folk song.

June Tabor was born on 31st December 1947 in Warwick, England.

Her ability is universally accepted. She has recorded a multitude of albums containing vast amounts of vintage songs dating back hundreds of years. She has also recorded with a great many other acts most recently with the Oyster Band where their live recording of Joy Division's 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' did the rare thing when it equalled the original in its emotional intensity even though the rendition was nothing like the original.

Not content with being pigeonholed into one genre June has also worked with a Jazz Trio, Quercus, where together they recorded work of rare and sublime beauty.

Francis Gary Powers


Powers was discharged from the Air Force in 1956 with the rank of captain. He then joined the CIA's U-2 program at the civilian grade of GS-12. U-2 pilots flew espionage missions using an aircraft that could reach altitudes above 70,000 feet (21.3 km), making it invulnerable to known Soviet anti-aircraft weapons of the time. The U-2 was equipped with a state-of-the-art camera designed to take high-resolution photos from the edge of the stratosphere over hostile countries, including the Soviet Union. U-2 missions systematically photographed military installations and other important sites.

Soviet intelligence was aware of encroaching U-2 flights since 1956 but lacked effective countermeasures until 1960. On May 1, 1960, Powers' U-2, which departed from a military airbase in Peshawar, Pakistan with support from the US Air Station at Badaber (Peshawar Air Station), was shot down by an S-75 Dvina (SA-2 Guideline) surface-to-air missile over Sverdlovsk. Powers was unable to activate the plane's self-destruct mechanism before he bailed out and was captured.

Powers' U-2 plane was hit by the first missile fired. A total of eight were launched; one of them hit a MiG-19 jet fighter which was sent to intercept the U-2 but could not reach a high enough altitude. Its pilot, Sergei Safronov, ejected but died of his injuries. Another Soviet aircraft, a newly manufactured Su-9 in transit flight, also attempted to intercept Powers' U-2. The unarmed Su-9 was directed to ram the U-2 but missed because of the large differences in speed. In The Skunk Works, Powers claimed that upon ejecting he saw the parachute of another pilot deploy behind him.

When the U.S. government learned of Powers' disappearance over the Soviet Union, they issued a cover statement claiming a "weather plane" had strayed off course after its pilot had "difficulties with his oxygen equipment". What CIA officials did not realize was that the plane crashed almost fully intact, and the Soviets recovered its equipment. Powers was interrogated extensively by the KGB for months before he made a confession and a public apology for his part in espionage. The incident set back talks between Khrushchev and Eisenhower. On August 17, 1960, Powers was convicted of espionage against the Soviet Union and was sentenced to a total of ten years, three years in imprisonment followed by seven years of hard labor. He was held in Vladimir Central Prison, 100 miles east of Moscow. The prison contains a small museum with an exhibit on Powers, who allegedly developed a good rapport with Russian prisoners there. Some pieces of the plane and Powers' uniform are on display at the Monino Airbase museum near Moscow.

On February 10, 1962, Powers was exchanged, along with American student Frederic Pryor, in a well-publicized spy swap at the Glienicke Bridge in Berlin. The exchange was for Soviet KGB Colonel Vilyam Fisher, known as "Rudolf Abel", who had been caught by the FBI and tried and jailed for espionage.

In 2010, CIA documents were released indicating that American officials did not believe Powers' account of the incident at the time, because it was contradicted by a classified National Security Agency report. However, newly released declassified CIA documents confirm the accuracy of Powers' report. The NSA report remains classified. (Francis Gary Powers) (U-2 SPY-in-the-SKY 1)

Giddy in Overtime

Hari Seldon used math 
Ray Bradbury wrote not to predict the future
but to prevent it
maybe that's the best insight
into authors we need to know
people who document our
clown show
and fear the final performance

The reality distortion field has always
enslaved mankind
we used to call it the Church
now its the MAN

To lead is to make decisions
its to show your teeth
and tonsils
and the toe jam
on your feet

This is a body no one
can love for a long time
but its part of life
like growing old
but where is the youthful
government
the rule of the
good guys?

Well in my life
I have seen so many strange
things I have become
even stranger
to reality
than the reality distortion
field
which i love
and walk into
every day
with joy
cause I am
not dead
and they pay me
to be alive
and that
in my wallet
next to my
kids is a card

called
pride and joy
life's laundry
detergent

So proven the manipulation
so true the lies
the masters of the universe
make a great show
but into this narrative
comes a new block buster
a face and great hair
with some kind of pedigree

Hair boy is a little goofy
we must admit
but is that not what
we want in a friend
serious sucks if you
work that way
every day

Hair boy is actually a man
and he has a plan
and its well thought out
and if the right was
doing it they
would be all
about keeping promises

I always loved government
because I have travelled the world
and found the people all the same
what made great nations
was great government
or more importantly
incorruptibly institutions
the arms and legs
and delicate fingers
of power that must
work for everything

We are in a Lovecraft
some nations
skull, and some
are forever up the creek
with no paddle
the people choose
after all

Canada has always been
a nation with the wind at its back
like our andulslian neighbour
Australia
a lucky country
but today
we need to attack
not sit on a pile of dirt
digging up prosperity
for that is plantation work
and no matter how hard
the reality distortion field
generator works
no one believes its
the 18th century
I have always been disgusted
when the right says stupid shit
and gets elected and tells
the holi poli with joy
we did what we said
so vote for me

For the first time in my life
someone from the left
has played that game
and got elected
wow Star Wars
trailer was released
on the same day

Hey, Good Lookin'

Thanks Dad


I grew up in the Imperial Valley in the cities of Imperial and El Centro California.


My father was first an aircraft mechanic and crop duster pilot and then pilot for Imperial Airlines.


I virtually grew up at the airport in Imperial at Visco Flying Co. enjoying hours of time in the sky flying with my Dad.


He took me flying in all kinds of airplanes and taught me to fly.


At age 15 I flew my first solo flight and got my pilots license. Thanks Dad.

My Canada has Trudeau as Prime Minister



Good guys win a huge historic massive victory against overwhelming odds, destroying forces of real evil and entitlement. I am so proud to be a Canadian this morning. We rejected the advice of our media masters, the pundits, the pitiful wretches who wage a war paid to not know what they know.

I liked Trudeau but have to admit I thought Harper was going to wipe the floor with him. Nuanced messaging works for me but when Trudeau was crucified for thoughtful statements about China and other complex issues, I thought he had little chance. Harper's scorched earth campaign was probably the biggest factor in the Liberal win. However the Trudeau team ran a remarkable campaign. Lots of meaty policy Canadians in the end found appetising. Sticking to the sunny ways, throwing all the dark arts under the bus and just going for it Canadian style.


Three big things that have me ecstatic.1) Legal Pot: the stupidity of prohibition abandoned. This will add billions of dollars to the public purse. It will subtract billions of dollars from the public expense. It will make society much more productive because thousands of Canadian will no longer have a criminal record for getting an illegal smile.

2) Infrastructure spending: This will create jobs and make our nation more productive. Comparing Canada to northern Europe, Austria, Switzerland, Taiwan and Singapore its very clear the potential of Canada has barely been scratched. The common thread through all those successful economies is fantastic infrastructure and government shaping the economy.

3) The F35 dies: Canada doges the biggest flying rattrap ever. I wonder if the plain brown envelopes can also be recalled.

Canada has a exaggerated sense of its importance on the world stage. Its part of our mythology. Harper destroyed our international brand. Fortunately Canada is so insignificant the world hardly noticed. I look forward to sewing the flag back on the backpack.

Sunny ways my friends, sunny day in Canada.

Propaganda Techniques


Propaganda is a form of communication, often biased or misleading in nature, aimed towards influencing the attitude of a population toward some cause, position or political agenda.

Propaganda is information that is not impartial and used primarily to influence an audience and further an agenda, often by presenting facts selectively (perhaps lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or using loaded messages to produce an emotional rather than a rational response to the information presented.

Common media for transmitting propaganda messages include news reports, government reports, historical revision, junk science, books, leaflets, movies, radio, television, and posters. Less common nowadays are letter post envelopes examples of which of survive from the time of the American Civil War. In the case of radio and television, propaganda can exist on news, current-affairs or talk-show segments, as advertising or public-service announce "spots" or as long-running advertorials.

Propaganda campaigns often follow a strategic transmission pattern to indoctrinate the target group. This may begin with a simple transmission such as a leaflet dropped from a plane or an advertisement. Generally these messages will contain directions on how to obtain more information, via a web site, hot line, radio program, etc. The strategy intends to initiate the individual from information recipient to information seeker through reinforcement, and then from information seeker to opinion leader through indoctrination.

A number of techniques based in social psychological research are used to generate propaganda. Many of these same techniques can be found under logical fallacies, since propagandists use arguments that, while sometimes convincing, are not necessarily valid.

Information dissemination strategies only become propaganda strategies when coupled with propagandistic messages. Identifying these messages is a necessary prerequisite to study the methods by which those messages are spread.

The 20th century has been characterized by three developments of great political importance: the growth of democracy, the growth of corporate power, and the growth of corporate propaganda as a means of protecting corporate power against democracy.

Who Votes for the MAN: CONSERVATIVES & FACISTS

Next to Don King I the biggest Amerian Story:Only
The MAN is Omnipotent 
in this universe
he killed JFK
brought down the twin
towers
and just generally
operates like Mr Smith

Case in point the Clinton's
they went to Washington
as bad corn poon
twenty years later
they are on stage
with Bono
eliminating Smith Pelly
and are best sycophant friends
with the guy
that was Delta Alpha
participant
in getting the blood
on Jackie's pill box hood

Lets get excited after
a thousand years
about the confederate flag
yet while a real non political
threat like Fuckmeashuma continues
to burrow towards the earth core
is not only not reported
no one can hear the nuclear drilling
which is more like a volcano melting
magma in reverse
and with it being a non natural progression
carries a bigger destructive curse

Man got this space ship nearly new
in God terms, only about six billion years old
It was only yesterday we got our drivers license
which entitled us to drive over the rest of earths 
creatures like the ultimate version
of Grand Theft Auto

God gave man for some reason
the car keys and so far we have
mostly crashed.

It is only recently with our MAD MAX
creativity we have found ways
to make the planet uninhabitable
for higher life forms
and we drive on 
with diminishing fuel
the fumes of faith in God
who will come and pluck
us off the planet
in a relevation
Bible studies trumping science
because there is no real argument

Now God must be our father
and our mother in one
a spiritual anthromorphodic
on a cosmic scale
So what will mother father God
think when they see our room
we shit on on everything
so bad the actually atmosphere
in our living space turned Passions
the toys anamorphic parent gave us
are badly broken
and we hacked the HVAC

Sure hope God is really forgiving
but as I see it 
its a death sentence
I hope we can do a better job
of leaving something behind
for the 7th try at humanity
than the pyramids

No Comprende

The Martian makes me proud to be an Earthling

If only Ridley Scott had directed Interstellar. This movie has best picture written all over it. If you took Gravity and Castaway and made them both way better you have The Martian. It was the most emotional charged feel good movie I can remember. There was not just one peak but at least 5 high 5 moments, incredible moviemaking.

Five Stars out of Five

Full review with trailer at my movie blog.

I have to admit I would go to Mars
cause I have always dreamed
since reading Heinlein
of walking amongst 
the stars
at the very least
I have become
a citzen of the galaxy

My mission would have 
both weed and potatoes growing
for as we have discovered
you are what you eat,
and you become what you think

Humans can die from boredom
a little weed in a 588 day mission
would keep a human crew sane
and is not overall efficiency
the ultimate test for the NASA
game
so do not put little dicks in space
when with a stash
there is no mental condom
they could not smash
sure I would throw in some
shrooms, and LSD
for if an astronaut can not travel the
6th astro plane and land back on earth sane
how could they survive the journey
to another planet?


THE MARS UNDERGROUND



Defining What it is to be a Canadian

Note he has a paddle and knows how to use it
This election will define us going forward. Just like a second Bush term defined America. If we reject Banana Repuplicism Canada has a bright future. If we fall for Harper knowing what we know, having seen him use the worst tactics ever, we do not deserve to call ourselves Canadians anymore.

Lumberjack life, and frozen ponds will always be part of a Canadians DNA regardless of race, creed, colour or sexual orientation.

The Ferengi Ambassador endorses the TPP


Free Trade is a great economic idea. In practise it has become a race to the bottom. Now with the TPP it has become a clever way for the MAN to use lawsuits to eliminate even basic protections or power of governments to regulate business. It should be called the Ferengi .Trade Mistake.mistake

Operation Mockingbird


Operation Mockingbird was a secret campaign by the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to influence media.

Begun in the 1950s, it was initially organized by Cord Meyer and Allen W. Dulles, and was later led by Frank Wisner after Dulles became the head of the CIA.

The organization recruited leading American journalists into a network to help present the CIA's views, and funded some student and cultural organizations, and magazines as fronts.

As it developed, it also worked to influence foreign media and political campaigns, in addition to activities by other operating units of the CIA. (read more)

The Northrop YB-49 Flying Wing


The Northrop YB-49 was a prototype jet-powered heavy bomber aircraft developed by Northrop Corporation shortly after World War II for service with the U.S. Air Force. The YB-49 featured a flying wing design and was a jet-powered development of the earlier, piston-engined Northrop XB-35 and YB-35. The two YB-49s actually built were both converted YB-35 test aircraft.

The YB-49 never entered production, being passed over in favor of the more conventional Convair B-36 piston-driven design. Design work performed in the development of the YB-35 and YB-49 nonetheless proved to be valuable to Northrop decades later in the eventual development of the B-2 stealth bomber, which entered service in the early 1990s.

Demons and Angels Cross Dressing


Demons and Angles
are cross dressing
changing up the scene
you got to fight for
your right to party
these days

The prohibitionists and serious people
like to think they are on the right path
but the road they paved
is killing the planet
and sucking the life
out of humanity
because who has
more genuine fun
than  people

born wild and free
not made to be
ruled by the meek
and foolish
powermad
lifeless
hulks of humans
who take on Zombie
forum way
before they are undead.

Vaishnav Jana to



Vaishnava (devotees of Lord Vishnu) people are those who,
Feel the pain of others,
Help those who are in misery,
But never let ego or conceit enter their mind.

Vaishnavas, respect the entire world,
Do not censure anyone,
Keep their words, actions and thoughts pure,
The mother of such a soul is blessed.

Vaishnavas see all equally, renounce greed and avarice,
Respect other woman as they respect their own mother,
Their tongue never utters false words,
Their hands would never touch the wealth of another.

Vaishnavas do not succumb to worldly attachments,
They are detached from worldly pleasures,
They are enticed by the name of God (Shri Ram),
All holy sites of pilgrimage are embodied within them.

Vaishnavas encompasses the absence of greed and deceit,
They have renounced all types of lust and anger,
The author of this poem would be grateful to meet such a soul,
Whose virtue liberates their entire lineage.

Narsinh Mehta, song's lyricist 15th century

bullshit fountians of reality distorting know how




Bullshit fountains stream shit
to our lizard brains
constantly
and no mind
is exempt
your going to have
a shitfaced
mind even if your
not drunk
no one is exempt

Have you ever seen
a crowd undulate
in Africa
and been amazed
at how a billion
people could
react spontaneously
to just one chord

and now you know
how deadly a three
chord can be
if you want to
program the lizard brain
It took me one day
and one night
and I got married

just the same
but was it fair
for me to program
her
I am the only one
who can
judge if that was insane

I program everyone
who surrounds
me and they have
no anti virus
for how have I
educed
the head of
lizard brain
security
for a billion year
if I was not Tully
free of the
lizard brain

cut out
a billion years ago
by LSD
Jones Spaceman
is my name
and I an not
a vi son
of alternative
reality

you see those really
do not exist
so be patient
no matter what
happens
its just you
and me


I came from a billion
years ago
due to relativity
and when I landed
here so resplendent
in my advanced PVC
i felt at home

cause the people
running the planet
where so determined
to repeat the cycle
of wiping out
humanity

humanity we are a joke
so intelligent
but we can not
smoke
a monkey out
of a tree
if it has
a vote

that can be manipulated
for me

Bruce Lee Like Water

Post VW Love


I have so many things 
I want to tell you
but do not know 
how to say
so I put down words
on a blog hopping
it will not drive 
love away
in a big diesel Audi
SUV

I see you freaking out
by my emissions standard
after all I will be long dead
before our prodigy
will be staggered

So VW I have to tell 
you I have fallen out
of love with you
Tell me why
Tell me why
you lied so 
hard to me

There is something
essentially fucked up
about mankind
we devise new
systems
but they fail
like we are blind
in a world full of colour
and that colour
should be black and white
if the capitalist system is perfect
you do not lie
about the product you
put out

Wholly Fuck Whooly fuck VW
the peoples car
Whooly Whooly F7uck the peoples car
when VW went rouge
I just went total prepper
the end of the world is
near my friends
when VW thinks
they can shit on the world
and use software to describe
that action as dates and flowers

It hurt me VW, it struck down
one of the wonderful things I think
that the Germans are reformed

Do not get me around Oktoberfest
but Jesus Christ in all his holy
could not make such a big
fuck up

Cheating is a staple of human activity
but for machines we expect better
and flawless mathematics

I got to go with some sympathy
for the devil;
VW did this for a reason
a competitive demand
they fucked u royally
and its the end
of the brand


The diesels debacle looks like automotive Benghazi
we can not debate sensibly about emissions
so despite the treachery
in reality the diesel might be
the earths friend
because as designed
it burned peanut oil
