(old painting of flat above Haight Street, in San Francisco)
it’s fall; my favorite time of year, here in Eugene Oregon.all the trees are green , Golden, and red and yellow!There is a slight chill to the air, thank God finally. Although the weatherman says that the temperature today will be 82°. What’s up, global warming? So soon? My dear so soon! Who gives a shit. The name of this blog is “what to do while the planet dies,” anyway. We’re not absolutely sure the whole planet will die, because of mankind fiddling around, massive pollution of the ocean, overfishing, destroying all the air with exhaust fumes, and in general, playing around like little kids, destroying a nice garden. It’s a good bet, though, on massive obliteration.
But on this nice fall day, we’re just enjoying what’s left, until all that happens. I don’t like having predictions, even if they’re scientifically accurate, of the near or far future that portend environmental disaster. You don’t want to see what’s going to happen. Nobody does. That’s why nobody pays attention to any crisis or catastrophe that’s going to happen, and they want to avoid it completely. And that’s definitely the name of the game with this government,also.
(Pres. Obama, and Congress and Senate, dear guys, this thing has your name on it!.ignore all the radical climate change, at your own risk. Ha ha ha ha again.) (Ironic bitter humor)Don’t hang around in rifle shot-range, when the chickens come home to roost.)
while I’m checking my e-mail, I see an e-mail from my cousin back east, from a friend Canadian, just been through Britain. She describes fully what is happening in England, all over all the cities. Lots and lots of protests, riots, rampant behavior from all the Muslim population. They’re even threatening to take over Britain first, while they take over the world. Okay! We have a declaration of JIHAD. They are really angry because the United States is making war on Isis; and the writer of the e-mail says, Britain is just about to enter the war also, against Isis, and join the United States.
Carolyn is looking over my shoulder at it, and she says, “how come those photos she sent your cousin didn’t come out? She has photographs of all the riots and demonstrations, thousands of people, but it didn’t come out on your e-mail properly.I guess she saw them.” “Not only that,” I replied. “I looked up all the news on the TV, even Fox news, all those news stations,and newspapers, and newspapers online; there is absolutely no photographs or stories about all the rioting and protests in Britain’s cities. Nothing! It’s like it doesn’t exist in the news!and our wonderful search engine, GOOGLE, refuses to come up with them also. Isn’t that strange?” Carolyn scratched her head; “that’s easily explainable,” she said “it’s good old CENSORSHIP rearing its head in the federal government again. Nothing new. They’re just blocking all the news of the world, from the United States.”
“you’re correct,” I replied again. Very disgusted. “This federal government blocks all the news of the world, as if its citizens were little kids who can’t take reality!” “They do it in communist countries, and fascist countries,” says Carolyn. “What does that say about our government?” Ha ha ha ha ha.”repress the truth! It’s only going to hurt you!” And she laughed her head off.But I was extremely disgusted, and e-mailed back to my cousin, and also to the woman who actually saw it, if they would please “try to send me the photographs, so I could get them around to other people.”
“so all the Muslims are saying, they’re going to take over England first. Wow. I wonder what the Queen Mother is going to say about that. And Prince Philip. And all his kids. Probably won’t like it very much. They don’t go much for ethnic.” I explained. “That would really affect that country, and change in a lot,” said Carolyn getting worried. “Now if the Muslims took over England, EVERYTHING would be censored. Women would be all covered up, get horrible operations so they couldn’t have sex. UGH! SHERIA LAW would be used against all women.”
“The fashions would be atrocious.even the FOOD would be bad. NO alcohol! Well, Muslims are not supposed to drink it. NO PORK! sigh. There goes the bacon!and can you imagine going outside, and you have to go everywhere with another group of women, because that’s the only way to be safe against rape or molestation from men? Very inconvenient. How do you go and shop for lingerie? They probably wouldn’t even allow it, because it’s sexual! Cover up all your hair in public! Now that’s really going too far. When I get back from the beautician,I want everybody to see the damn thing; it costs a lot of money!” Said Carolyn, getting very rattled.
“You’re not even talking about the worst; the worse stuff that would happen!” I said, mortified.”there would be thousands and thousands of public beheadings! Of everybody they wanted to get rid of, and everybody who would not convert to Islam!what are they going to do with all those heads? Stick them on pikes, like they did in ancient history? This is absolutely undeniably not GOOD. If I ever saw an excuse for a couple of atom bombs, and a couple of neutron bombs thrown in for good measure, it’s if and when the Muslims take over Britain.”Carolyn looked at me painfully.
“all the pubs would be destroyed, and all the beer and ale. No drinking! I don’t think the British guys would put up with that!” “Yeah, if you can’t go out at night to a good pub, see your friends and have a good time, sing a bunch of bad Irish tunes,and get really smashed, what is life worth?I bet they get rid of British FOOD! No fish and chips!no liver and kidney pie! No boiled mutton! No steam potatoes with greens on the side! – –Dang!!what’s that thing they make, that’s kind of a custard out of meat gravy?” “I think it’s some kind of gravy-dessert” replied Carolyn, puzzled. “The British have weird food anyway. Now, if they got rid of all the FRENCH food, that would be the end of the world!”
in comparison, Eugene and Oregon’s coming election, number 91, I believe, to make marijuana legal in Oregon, is a trifling tiny tidbit, in comparison. Yes, Oregon is going to try to ratify and legalize marijuana. Great. They’re just chasing the beavers tail. All the potheads already smoke it, our next-door neighbors do it in the daytime, right on their porch.but there is one problem with number 91; in that bill, if it is passed, nobody can TAX MARIJUANA..
“You mean, they think they can pass a bill, so none of the counties or cities or towns, can tax marijuana?” said Carolyn, mystified. “They still have to make up all the taxes they should’ve had for decades, while it was illegal, and nobody could tax it! Those drug dealers made MILLIONS, WITH NO TAXES ON IT!! Talk about the perfect business; almost as good as huge corporations get away with.”
We looked at each other; why hadn’t our poor parents raised us to be SUPER-BAD CRIMINALS, to be a success in the world, instead of NICE people, law-biding, and trusting? Why couldn’t WE be that BAD? Jimmy Cagney was right!! You gotta be nasty, vicious, and be very effective at it. Never mind going to church on Sunday; that would be a good day to hit and steal all the liquor stores!! I mused that it might be satisfying beating up other women, like those bad guys do, just to get revenge on all the catiness!
As if to round out the end of a terrible-news day, when I called up my sister, in California, she said that her partner had just been thrown off her medical insurance,. Kaiser Permanente. “Oh, FUCK!! ” I exclaimed, overheated.”That’s the main reason to live in California,. just to get Kaiser!!What was their reason, did they give one?” She answered, subdued, “They gave a weak excuse so I phoned up a health care advocate,but they transferred my partner over to Blue Cross. They can’t have the same doctor.” “I bet Kaiser is throwing off weak, diabetic, end-stage renal disease patients off the insurance, cause they want to get rid of them; not pay for the chronic or really sick. “I mused. “Cause that’s always what insurance co.s do; get rid of the sick people!!” “But that’s against the law!” she replied. “Hey, Obamacare, and the whole bunch of crooked insurance co.s. are against the law!! Maybe I should tell you about the perfect job I just found. ” I laughed. Haw Haw. (VERY bitter , black, satirical humour.)
Just try singing this ditty, on a crisp Fall day,
“Why, oh, Lord, was I born to be GOOD?! /
“Instead of kindness,and minding the LAW!/
“Selling millions of drugs,without any tax;/
“just pile up the money,/be RICH and relax!/
“make your fortune off liquor/
“And then act REAL COOL!!
“And the masses respect you../
“It’s very rare/ that your country EJECTS you!/
“Cause it’s GOOD to be BAD/GOOD has failed me,/
” And i really tried!
(Carolyn looked at me doubtfully; “Is being BAD, like a NWO huge-corporation, so you can rich,really justified?” “I never said it was justified,” I replied, “Cause only those billionaires will get good treatment for end-care renal-failure, now.
“And you know what? I’ve been poor, and then, I’ve been poor again, and if I had ever gotten into a position where I had to make a choice to shaft a million working people, so I could get rich, I’d gotta admit this.”Man has evil inclinations.”–unquote. We’re never going to change. We’re just a bunch of savage animals, killing and fighting over limited resources, and ethics & morals don’t stick. You think baboons with large, sharp teeth are dangerous? Hah!! The bankers and guys on Wall St. have bigger fangs!! But—you can’t blame em. They’re all just MONKIES with big brains, still swinging in the trees, and attacking to kill other competing animals! They won’t get rid of greed no matter what anyone does; they are LOCKED in their genetic frame-work, unable to change from being animals yet.
“No, NOTHING is justified. It’s reality, just the way human beings are.They still think BAD is really great, and GOOD behavior accomplishes nothing. I can’t really judge them; then I’d have to change myself.” I lectured; (“Hey, let’s go get a couple of CHEESE-STEAKS, a side of cheese=baked French Fries, and then go hit Dairy-Queen, They have a new Fudge-marshmello Blizzard with walnuts and frozen cheese-bits! I gotta try it!!” rep.ied the hungry Carolyn. Case closed, my conjecture proven. -(-in Eugene, Oregon. Sandraminadotty, stay nice! 🙂 )
