YA THINK?

"Home is not where you live,but where they understand you." Christian Morgenstern,poet

aloha again, pain wracked a lil more than usual.
less productive,less attentive to thirsty plants & friends & blog...

MEG WHITMAN
Meg Whitman wants to be da next GOP Governor of KALIpornia.
Meg Whitman is the ex CEO eBay billionaire.
Meg Whitman has never held political office.
Meg Whitman apparently did not vote for 28 years...
Meg Whitman promises to cut another $15 billion from the KALIpornia budget by attrition (death panels?)
Meg Whitman is telegenic & poised.will we make the same mistake twice?
SIGH.

PANDEMIC
there were NO COMMENTS on my last blog.
is anyone still reading or did i scare you all back under the covers.just askin...

TWITS
i must be getting old but the attraction of IM, texting, Facebook and the twits on Twitter escapes me. i read DOONESBURY and he made fun of Twits, i find much to my dismay that he did not exaggerate.there is too much going on in the world to read what your fave newshawk or TV/movie star haircut had for lunch.

IRAN
i have been thinking about writing an entire blog about Iran, not that i am an expert but that has never stopped me before.this smells like Saddam 2.0 to me. i watch LINKTV which has a 9 part series about Iran which is a real eye opener,to me anyway. so looking at the latest saber rattling from Capt.Compromise (Obama) among others it seems to be based on a FALSE PREMISE that the Islamic rulers of Iran are SUICIDAL.
lets parse the premise..Israel has over 200 nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them,Iran has none.A Q Khan of Pakistan and the Russians were and are selling Iran nuclear technology
( the North Koreans sell them missiles) and we say nothing. just yesterday CNN said something about Iran could hit all the middle east oil producing centers IF they get nuclear weapons, Israel could do the same in the next few minutes.the Persian culture is one of the oldest and proudest on the planet, do you think they WANT to be reduced to a radioactive relic? ya think???

JUNK JEWELRY JUNK
MADELINE ALLBRIGHT (halfbright?) has written an illustrated book about the junk jewelry she wore as UN Ambassador and Secty of State, no wait it gets better,NPR devoted about five minutes this morning talking to her about it. no query about her 60 MINUTES interview asking about the NO FLY ZONE bombing of Iraqi water treatment plants leading to the death oif maybe a million Iraqi children.NOT A PEEP OT A TWIT...

i wore my GRUMPY tee shirt around yesterday, maybe i should rinse it out and put it on again today,ya think?
i was also gonna write a blog comparing myself to DR.House on TV but Soul Mate sez i am not THAT BIG AN ASSH*LE otherwise she woulda ankled out years ago. PC or not still one of my fave shows.

in other news, THINGS SUCK but Pagasni's art is still BEAUTIFUL ( check out ORE PAINTER,pretty please?)

PANDEMIC...DON'T PANIC

"False history gets made all day, any day,
the truth of the new is never on the news
False history gets written every day."_Adrienne Rich

aloha again, i should have my head examinined for even taking on this topic.plus i had two different styles of spinal adjustment yesterday so i am fighting the urge to be even less coherent than usual. Here goes...

my references are www.mercola.com.WebMD.AletrNet,Alex Jones Prison Planet, Department of Homeland Security FEDERAL PANDEMIC PROTOCOL,www.flu.gov and the Atlanta Journal Constitution among others.

CAVEAT/DISCLAIMER
i am NOT a medical doctor ( just another fat old crip hunched over an antique PC) and anything in this blog SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN AS GOSPEL, CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN OR HEALER OR JUJU WITCH DOCTOR BEFORE TRUSTING ANYTHING YOU READ HERE! hopefully that will keep me from being sued.

speaking of lawsuits
IMMUNITY
apparently according to the 2006 PUBLIC READINESS AND EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS ACT (no i never heard of it either) AKA the PREP Act the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) under circumstances of A DECLARED PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY (like now) can grant COMPLETE IMMUNITY FROM LIABILITY to all makers of drugs and vaccines. this covers BOTH current and future manufacturers.

why is this?
according to my pile of printouts during the last Swine Flu Panic about 500 people were PARALYZED with GILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME ( a neurodegenerative condition) as an after effect of that vaccine and 25 of the 500 later died and the inevitable lawsuits followed.now you have to have PROOF of willful bad intent and get permission from DHHS to sue (don't hold your breath).SIGH.
as i was saying ZERO LIAIBILITY to current and future makers and "associated adjuvents".okay, WTF is an ADJUVENT? think of it as Hamburger Helper for vaccines,without it there's not enuff to go around for thr estimated 5 BILLION DOSES NEEDED WORLDWIDE (at $10 a dosage that equals an annual income of $50 BILLION for 'needy' vaccine makers).
i am cutting & pasting this mentally as i go along so be patient.

ABOUT ADJUVENTS
what is in your average flu vaccine like TAMIFLU & RELENZA anyway? glad u asked...

EGG PROTEINS and maybe some broken bird flu fragments
GELATIN sometimes causes allergic reactions
POLYSORBATE 80 (AKA Tween80 tm) can cause severe allergic reactions
FORMALDEHYDE used in embalming fluid & a known carcinogen
TRITON X100 'a strong detergent' ?????
SUCROSE (table sugar)
RESIN yet another allergen
GENTAMYCIN an antibiotic
THIMEROSAL mercury based preservative, used in multidose vials and implicated in GULF WAR SYNDROME vaccines and possibly linked to current AUTISM Epidemic...

BTW most vaccines are routinely contaminated with pestvirus,mycolasma (see Gulf War Syndrome again),viral fragments,DNA fragments and bacterial components which can cause chronic systemic disorders (like Lyme?) , cancers, neurologic complaints and even slow brain degeneration...Big Whoop.
BTW2
this vaccine is unusual in yet another way, instead of growing it in chicken eggs pre harvesting they are using a FAST TRACK METHOD utilizing human liver cells, did i mention this is SO FAR UNTESTED ON SUCH A MASSIVE SCALE AS THIS? ready or not, here it comes.

before we proceed i want out to toss out another term in officialese GRAS..GENERALLY RECOGNIZED AS SAFE (sic) that should be GRAS-USA since standards in Europe are usually more stringent and less polluter- friendly (see cellphone/cell towers & EMF exposures).
where was i?
here in 'Paradise' as in most other counties Priority is given to small children,pregnant moms and healthcare workers.sounds good right? BIG PHARMA is the largest political lobby in Congress and THIMEROSAL is apparently 50 TIMES MORE TOXIC THAN REGULAR MERCURY POISONING!!! (see any big AUTISM site)

SQUALENES
are yet another adjuvent along with ethylene gycol (antifreeze),PHENOL (carbolic acid),ALUMINUM (perhaps implicated in Alzheimers) etc etc.now SQUALENES are an oil based ajuvent which have caused test rats to be crippled,paralyzed or induced severe arthritic symptoms. in humans it causes a drastic autoimmune response usually something like LUPUS (see mercola.com for more details). so just a reminder if you, as pregnant mom, or your baby becomes a brain dead drooling catatonic vegatable YOU CANNOT SUE WITHOUT PROOF OF INTENT & DHHS PERMISSION.bet that soothes your soul right?

BAIT & SWITCH? VACCINES ABOARD THE FAST TRAX
i have heard about the human test trials on CNN,MSNBC AND are local news bleeds now according to several sources the test vaccines are SQUALENE FREE like in the first swine flu during the Ford years.why? because if they don't KILL ANYONE with the Squalent Free vaccines then they administer BILLIONS OF DOSES of Squalene loaded doses they can claim , like Nixon,PLAUSIBLE DENIALBILITY (sic) since are they bulletproof to lawsuits anyway.so this gives them NO FINANCIAL INCENTIVE to make a SAFE VACCINE...TRIPLE SIGH.

CYTOKINE STORMS & U
here we harken back to the so called SPANISH FLU of 1918 (recent research shows it acutually started in Kansas,with Toto?) which probably helped kill over 100 million people and halt WORLD WAR ONE. young and healthy people mostly between 20 and 40 were hit the hardest by a wildly malfunctioning immune system (this was pre most modern antibiotics) this was the dread CYTOKINE STORM (catchy name eh?). now the very young have an immune system that recent evidence suggests does not fully mature until puberty and the immune compromised such as myself, most diabetics, those with MS or Lupus or Chronic Fatigue or Lyme, heart or lung diseases & SMOKERS et al are also among the most vulnerable.WE WHO ARE ABOUT TO DIE etc etc...

DIE DIE MY DARLING
one of my printouts claims that CNN on August 25th of this year stoked the fears of Panic by claiming that 96,000 people would die of Swine Flu unlike the 28 to 38,000 who die annually of normal flu.if true this is irresponsible but not surprising, you have eyes ands a brain dontcha? any wonder why trust in the MSM is plummeting?
GOT SYMPTOMS?
signs of da Swiney Flu...
fever of 100+
coughing
runny nose/sore throat
joint aches
severe headaches
vomiting or diarrhea
lethargy
lack of appetite

HOLY CRAP, I MUST BE A ZOMBIE.
I MUST'VE DIED YEARS AGO & NOT NOTICED...
oh wait, these are also NORMAL FLU signs as well as Lyme, fibromyalgia,Chronic Fatigue,Lupus etc etc etc.
BTW 3 if you hear that SWINE FLU IS RAMPANT IN GREAT BRITAIN...it is a self diagnosed telephone survey, not the most scientific method around.
if i haven't totally totally bummed you yet there are hints, even within CDC reports that megadoses of VITAMIN D might just improve your chances of surviving this and other flu seasons (see mercola.com again and CDC links).

NOW LET'S ALL GET OUR PANTIES IN A TWIST AS WIDESPREAD FLU SHOTS ARE SCHEDULED TO START OCT. 1ST..not Halloween???

JUST JUNIQUE

"Love doesn't make the world go round.Love is what makes the ride worthwhile."
Franklin P.Jones
I HEARTILY AGREE...

aloha again,
i know i promised you the low down on SWINE FLU SOON, this week i promise. made the mistake of cleaning up my MAN CAVE (sic) and misplaced everything. spent the morning going thru my mass of papers of 1200 unfiled e mails. meanwhile i have to decipher the NERDESE in which the instructions of our new cellphone is written, promised that too.SIGH.
i never intended this blog to be educational reportage, just some opinions & snark but you can't talk about healthcare nowadays without insight and reflection, or in my case doing your homework.

ah, FOUND IT and some other stuff related to it too. will take me a few days to collate and digest it.SM suggests that the SWINE FLU Panic may be similar/identical to the whole Y2K Panic....for those of you with intact long term memories.

apparently threw my PELVIS out on the hostel foam bed BOOO!, & yes Pagani we have paid more for regular hotels and less at remoter hostels ( like Pt.Reyes, Mantara Lighthouse,Sacramento etc). SOUL MATE sent out my last blog (which i considered mediocre at best) and got a lot of POSITIVE RESPONSE from others i consider outside my demographic, you know who you are.SMILE.

BTW i have been informed that children, pregnant women and first responders get priority on the H1N1 vaccine, at least here in "Paradise"...this may not be a very good idea,as u will see.yes, there will be references.

i liked the talking book CHARLEY'S WEB by JOY FIELDING, about a smart mouth opinionated columnist who gets into trouble interviewing a cute blonde child killing sociopath.altho i am neither blonde nor pretty i could relate...A GOOD READ (sic).

in other news,
SM is thinking about getting a tattoo.
MY EX (*) and her Main Squeeze have oodles and i have three, two large and one small dragon on my ankle (got it with MY EX (*) and Penny on whim).

BTW i am now on FACEBOOK due to several friends & relations.IMHO seems rather inane so far but i don't check it that often.
well i've wasted enough of your time today,back to that darned cellphone manual.

FRANTIC IN FRISCO

'The inmates ARE running the asylum." ad copy found at 25th & Balboa for Batman_Arkham Asylum

aloha again, still recovering from a 27 hour visit to Frisco.

first the good news,
my eldest son Z Man is NO LONGER A CANDIDATE FOR AMPUTATION.YIPPPEEEEEE!
he has been doing his excercises and is experiencing some nerve regrowth.

FRENZY
as i have mentioned, i drove a cab in Frisco from 1974 to 1980 and it was INSANE.
well, it is worse now.the streets are more crowded, the jaywalkers and wrong way drivers more flagrant and the homeless more verbal and/or truculent plus the working girls and Montgomery Street honeys now dress alike SIGH.
we slept at an elder/youth hostel at 312 Mason,at O Farrell, where our $100 a nite queen sized bed turned out to be a slab of foam and where we noticed, upon leaving, a bowl of free earplugs on the front desk.people were yelling,screaming and rattling bottles all nite long...all this a mere block from Union Square. Soul Mate went out exploring and wound up playing human bumper car with the surly morning crowds.
we were both wound up tighter than a $2 watch with all the craziness, traffic and unexpected long walks uphill carrying luggage.

we all had a good meal in the Castro with MY EX (*) her mohawk haircut and Z Man plus we had long talks about depression & disability,dating,sexual relations and Twinkling.the next day SM drove to the Mission where she tried to sell books while i watched the changing demographic of the local renters.
I USED TO LOVE LIVING IN SAN FRANCISCO but that was decades ago...i was SO HAPPY to return Home with its languid pace and the lack of tourists. now my back is screwed up and i have two appointments for chiropractic and massage coming up due to this excursion.SIGH.

i was going to write about the looming PANDEMIC PANIC and who stands to make a $50 billion profits from it.i am still collecting data for that blog..SOON i promise!

in other news,
Senator Max Baucus has delivered for his corporate masters.
Big Whoop, a 13% INCREASE OVER PRESENT RATES, oh yeah that'll solve a lotta problems with healthcare.

GODS WILL

A GUEST BLOG TODAY...

Germs and bacteria are creatures of God, ..... to murder them through medical treatment is to oppose the will of God.

You do not need Single Payer or any medical treatment whatsoever if you are going to be resurrected. Why waste money on doctors if soon you will have everlasting life?
(Don't allow ourselves to get buried too deeply as you will have to do a lot of digging when you rise from the grave....there may be a shortage of shovels.)

If it is God's will for you to get sick and die, it is clearly socialistic and devil worship to oppose his will. So don't delay your dying! Oppose Single Payer and DIE NOW!

(Earl Gilman is responsible for this stupidity)

MR.Gilman is a long time friend and mentor of Soul Mate, hope u like this change up.
virutal hugs

DOUBTS

"Tell the truth but ride a fast horse!" French maxim

aloha again, thanks Pagani for your heartfelt response to my last blog.
Soul Mate predicted that you would have a very human response,plus she loves your art too.

HEALTHCARE FUN SONG ON UTUBE
www.huffingtonpost.com/paul-hipp/were-number-37_b_281979.html


RARE EARTH METALS
this one is new to me but NPR spent five minutes talking about these things which are apparently CRUCIAL TO GREEN ENERGY i.e. electric car batteries and wind turbines.they are found aplenty in Canada,Australia and ....CHINA. so once again it looks like we will be in hock to foreign powers to lessen our dependece on foriegn oil.SIGH.

WALL STREET PLUS ONE
PAUL KRUGMAN Nobel winning economist predicted last year that the Bush/Obama policy of backing truckloads of cash into Wall Street would insure that nothing would ever change there.DAMN looks like he was right again. all the MSM (Main Stream Media) are reporting BUSINESS AS USUAL again.Obama AKA CAPT. COMPROMISE as radical,fascist,communist, granny killing abortionist would be dictator? no, he's just another SNAKE OIL SALESMAN selling vaporware and promises. DOUBLE SIGH & CRY.

CHOP SHOP
my eldest son Z MAN lost the use of one arm in an auto wreck last year, apparently it is irreparable damage and MY EX (*) reports that specialists have informed her that, in similar circumstances, others have chosen to have the non functioning arm replaced by a prosthetic after voluntary amputation.it is his decision of course but in this process i have discovered a prejudice i didn't know i had.
I FIND PROSTHETIC ARMS CREEPY. legs OK but arms YEECH!
i have some friends who are paraplegics, should they have their legs replaced too? what about quads?? one of my county commissioners is a quad with limited movement except for one foot, should we replace him with a plastic robot? ( see the xlnt flim MY LEFT FOOT which won DANIEL DAY LEWIS an Oscar) SIGH yes i know it is irrational and i have no bias against power wheelchairs or assistants. i'm just another flawed human with a load of opinions okay?

in other news,
the MSM reports that people have lost both faith and trust in... the MSM.they blame blogs and bloggers.people like lil ole me? LOL!
i addicted to NPR, BBC NEWS,GOOGLE NEWS and anything else which stays still long enough for me to scan it. I JUST HAPPEN TO THINK ABOUT THE CONTENT AS IT RELATES TO MY OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, I MAKE NO PRETENSE OF NEUTRALITY. Christ, i thot that was a given when i looked it up on WIKI, yes believe it or not i do homework before i spew here...

SNAKES IN DA BRAIN

"About these Death Panels...Elected or Appointed?" snark overheard at a recent County meeting

aloha again,
still recovering from yesterday's Cowboy Breakfast here at the mobile home park.LOVED THE AUTHENTIC BISCUITS AND GRAVY!!! in keeping with the theme i wore a black cowboy hat and jeans, a purple western style shirt and a black 13 foot long hangman's noose a friend made for me years ago. just stuff i have laying around the house. gave up my cowboy boots when i got gout etc.

SNAKES
by now u know that this blog revolves around healthcare and cripness, here is another revolve...we have a friend, a sweet but rather unfocussed lil old lady (LOL) maybe we call her PANDORA? or MEDUSA?? with a huge ass dog. years ago she had minor female surgery and the ANESTHESIA was ten or 100 times the normal dosage, i forget which. this mistake put her into a half month long (?) coma and apparently caused some brain damage,undiagnosed. shortly after this she moved into a notorious drug nabe and interuppted some routine drug sales so... according to her, the drug lord started invading her house,rearranging or taking items and poisoning her huge ass dog.okay this much is plausible, so eventually she moved but her problems moved with her...even here to Santa Cruz where she accused her new landlord of being the pawn of the drug lord....so she moved again and again and sent us internet rumors verifying all of her PARANOIA. (what did crazy people do before internet access when they only had the voices in their heads to rely on?)

now here is the problem... she is NOT an activist, sh*t disturber, loony lefty radical (like me) or anything else threatening but now she is convinced that the cartels and CIA are targeting her in a remote woodsy cabin with DEW (Directed Energy Weapons as seen on the Science channel the same day we got one of her letters). she claims they are also tapping the WiFi connection to her laptop, simple enough to do too.

yesterday we were watching KATHRYN OLMSTEAD on CSPAN who wrote a book REAL ENEMIES about conspiracy theory and theorists (note she actually believes the Warren Commission which immediately disqualified her in my book, eh blog) and the psychology behind it. deluisons of granduer and importance and a usually impotent desire to make this crazy deeply flawed world make sense (she aslo quoted a need for fame and of course greed).

so here is my problem, our problem... our LOL friend thinks she has been targeted for assassination.she plans to attend a Zen meditation group to soothe the transition...in a world where COINTELPRO framed people, killed people and generally disrupted politcal process in the USA (thanx JEdgar) and the BUSH CRIME FAMILY sends the military to spy on Quakers and non violent protesters in FREE SPEECH ZONES (sic) What the Hell do we tell her? i am more aware of the DARK SIDE OF AMERICAN GOVERNACE than most yet she finds things that even i did not know which are credible , if used against someone like me or SM but against her are highly unlikely.we offer her love,support,consolation and encouragement but know a nursing home would surely hastend her demise, as well as being a Paranoid's worse nightmare...SIGH.

there is a Zen related saying IF YOU INTEND TO DIE, YOU CAN DO ANYTHING!
she tends to be heading in this direction.

in other news,
per The Senile fishwrap- the county's biggest hospital's Pysch Unit is closing it's doors in 3 or 4 years and offering $5 million to the cash starved county to set up it's own facility.i am reminded of waht is said about Texas "too small for a country but but too big for an insane asylum".IMHO likewise Santa Cruz but we like it anyway.we shall see how all this turns out.enuff of this...

and yes i did say CRAZY.

UNDERWHELMED

"The two most beautiful words in the English language are 'check enclosed'." Dorothy Parker
just ask our Congress...

aloha again, just a quickie today (no,not That kind!) got a meeting & PT massage on my schedule.

UNDERWHELMED

saw FEARLESS LEADER on TV last night and it felt like stale beer to me,sorta flat. especially compared to his FIRED UP! barn burner speech on Labor Day.
i thot he might finally take the kid gloves off and , ask Pagani phrased it, "BUST A CAP IN SOME REPUBLICAN ASS". no no we got Capt.Compromise again SIGH.

UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE IN THE USA???
YOU SHOULD LIVE SO LONG!

in the same news,
i finally got around to getting THE RANDI RHODES NEWSLETTER which documents everything she sez on her show. she cites chapter and verse and even has a video of MATT TAIBBI from Rolling Stone THREE THUMBS UP (no, not That way either).
i'm outta here....go out and enjoy Indian Summer.
speaking of which, has anybody else noticed that the Israeli policy with the Arabs matches what we did to the First Americans (sic) break every treaty while taking their lands,destroying their culture and treating them like dumb soulless beasts? just askin'...one of my friends was friends with the kid from Oakland who got shot in the face with a NEW IMPROVED TEAR GAS GRENADE while peacefully protesting the defilement of Arab land and the encroaching 'settlements' which actually look more like KALIpornia condos.as an old time comic usedta say DON'T GET ME STARTED!

CRANK CALLS

"When pulling oneself up by own bootstraps, be careful not to fall on ass.HA HA!" HO CHI ZEN

"Keep the change." Cindy Sheehan,Gold Star mom/activist

aloha again, before i forget- check out the latest from OREGON PAINTER (Pagini) a haunting landscape.YOU GO GIRL!

CRANK CALLS
SOUL MATE/CASSANDRA is a labor activist/writer so every year we go to the local LABOR DAY PICNIC. our first one we were here less than a month and had no idea what we were in for. if was nice and she got to put face on on her email compatriots.so this year i made a sign and we got a table for the union etc etc plus she set up to sing with the RAGING GRANNIES we she is now active in. imagine my surprise when some local solons began sitting at our long plank table.
some backstory...
since about december 08? i have been e mailing Senator Boxer (DiFi is a lost cause,why bother?) and US Rep.Sam Farr about healthcare and other related issues about once every ten days. SM/C even went to two of his town hall meetings.
so Sam Farr ends up sitting at our table eating undercooked chicken while waiting to give his speech.so introduce myself and he probably thinks i'm just some local nut until i give ex State Assemblyman Jon Laird a healthcare button and Santa Cruz City Councilman Tony Madrigal makes a point of coming over to shake my hand.so now i am a local nut with contacts, i sent him a follow up note reminding him of the incident.

BLOODY HELL
speaking of Healthcare, i am intently watching the Kabuki dance in DC and how FEARLESS LEADER has given away the notion of CHANGE (see Sheehan quote).SENATOR MAX BAUCUS (corporate hack) has come out AGAINST SINGLE PAYER OR THE PUBLIC OPTION in favor of the toothless impotent CO-OP notion which with have all the impact of a wet noodle against a rhino.SIGH. i am wqaiting with baied breath for FEARLESS LEADER'S speech tonight, has his found his balls at last? for Ted Kennedy if not for us??? @BIPARTISAN COMPROMISE (sic) as i asked someone at the picnic HOW DO YOU COMPROMISE WITH SOMEONE INTENT ON CUTTING YOUR THROAT? ASK THEM TO CUT YOUR JUGULAR ONLY HALFWAY???

Check out Matt Taibbi's article in the Sept 09 issue of ROLLING STONE,delicious & depressing in its detail.{HOWARD thqanx 4 the heads up!}

MONEY TALKS B.S WALKS
meanwhile the Supremes are about to decide the future of democracy (literaslly) via it's future decision ON CORPORATE PERSONHOOD (sic) which has a long ugly history of corrupting government. there are now SEVEN LOBBYISTS PER EVERY CONGRESSPERSON...wag the dog anyone? STAY TUNED.

in other news
SM/C try to be fair to each other. so once when she dragged me to a particularly excruciating political meeting i said YOU OWE ME .it was GAY PRIDE WEEK so i found a NUDE POETRY READING in San Francsico, there was a clothes check at the door and both the audience and poets were nude including 80 year old Beat Godess RUTH WEISS who took a shine to me. since it was a mostly gay crowd SM/C was fairly confortable except for the gaggle of lesbins who kept ogling her lasciviously.we both had a good time...i told this sotry to some new friends to test their open mindedness, they passed with flying colors. even BIG MOUTH BLOGGERS need friends.

DO CHECK OUT PAGANI AND HER PAINTERS, she has talent to burn.I LOVE HER WORK! i hope to post some sundry pix here before Xmas,we shall see.went to a Lyme mtg in Watsonville last night and my back is still barking protest, check out the side bar here and on the various blogs, tell me if we missed anything.

IN OTHER NEWS

"Even brute beasts and wandering birds do not fall into the same traps or nets twice."
Saint Jerome (not the patron saint of hunters?)

aloha again, had breakfast and got up another head of steam.here we go...

1. as a sign of his lack of judgment my youngest son (Aspergers) has some sort of job in Utah, the klan meeting disguised as a state. the Book of Mrmon declares blacks to be subhumans, the Mark of Cain or some such nonsense.letsa see if i remember this right, in upstate new york in the mid 1860s Joseph Smith was told by the angel Moroni (I Moron?) ,in a dream, to dig up gold tablets which had the Book of Mormon inscribed on them-in English apparently.so he dug up the tablets,wrote down the4 contents then reburied them SO THAT NO ONE ELSE COULD SEE THEM! the most Bitter Man I Ever Met was a GAY MORMON FROM UTAH. his soul was actually corroded by the hatred he'd encountered, good luck to you Merrill!

2. i finally figured it out.
Oliver Twist or some other Dickens novel was playing on TV as i channel surfed by and i realized that A PERFECT WORLD BY GOP STANDARDS would fall somewhere between Charles Dickens and Jack the Ripper-debtors prisons,alms houses,sprawling slums, no social safety nets,no public education,filthy starving lice and vermin infested beggars tugging at the silken coat tails of the uber rich. think about okay?

3. my friend GURA in Geezerville send me a YOUTUBE trailer for TAPPED about our bottled water addiction.me, i haved used stainless steel bottles for years now, gave my youngest one a bottle but he THREW IT AWAY ofr his own obscure reasons. a perfectly good $20 bottle too...speaking of YOUTUBE VAN JONES apparently once called the GOP assh*les in response to a question (just saw it on CNN) so the Big Smear began and now he has been forced out as Green Jobs advisor. my SOUL MATE- PC CASSANDRA is addicted to CSPAN and VAN JONES was one of the few people on it who i could watch without flinching,local boy makes good then is sacrficed on the alter of BIPARTISAN COMPROMISE...SIGH.

4.ELIOT SPITZER was on CNN today, before he was a comedy dirty joke punchline he crusaded against Wall Street greed and warned of the impact on the nation.Remember that? just a coincidence that he met his downfall,dressed in only black socks and a hard on, while there were still billions to be scammed. shades of J Edgar and Nixon's Enemies List but as Da Prez sez WE'RE LOOKING FORWARDS, NOT BACKWARDS.History will record us as the fools we are...

5. i was half asleep from a large breakfast but i think i heard that 3300 people committed suicide in KALIpornia last year (check out the NAMI site on sidebar) and only about 550 people have died of swine flu so far, guess where the money is going.SM got an armload of CDs talking about the $50 billion to be made from the vaccine scare. i've got something here on the floor with more details which i hope to blog about later.just keep your eyes and ears open okay? don't do anything rash (or pimply?)

6.Afghanistan...the Mongols conquered it by piling up severed heads higher than the castle walls, nobody else has succeeded since. the BBC and even NPR have reported massive fraud and ballot box stuffing. this is the democracy our peeps are fighting and dying for? opium/heroin production is down abot 5% so now they only account for 90% of the worlds output SIGH. the BBC reports that the Talibasn only conrols 2-3% of the opium trade, they banned it altogether when they ruled, and the rest in controlled by various warlords and transient allies...this is so much like Columbia and the Golden Triangle during the Viet Nam fiasco that i can't stand it.
WILL WE NEVER LEARN?
HOW MUCH OF OUR BLOOD IS CHEAP OIL WORTH?

i think that's it, gotta go pick up some pills to keep me going a bit longer. have turned down an invitation to the Greek Festival downtown, SM and her crew are going later today.her union is part of a LABOR DAY PICNIC tomorrow and i have to make a large sign for HOMECARE WORKERS (these earthly angels).

PS my friends are starting to refer to me as 'charles.com' or affectionately as 'that terrorist blogger CHARLES'...I LIKE IT!!!!!!

PS2 PAGANI-I LOVE YOUR FANTASY! sigh...

MIND GAMES

"Ideas are more dangerous than guns.We wouldn't let our enemies have guns,why should we let them have ideas?" JOSEF STALIN

aloha again, just noodlin today too early (sic) for heavy duty screeds..

RACISM
the BLIND governor of new york declared that many White Peoiple GET UNCOMFORTABLE when TOO MANY darkies are in power.didja know that he was BORN BLIND IN HARLEM? i am remnide that a study found that a blind person listening to sports could tell who was black or white (imagine that and why) blacks like Terrel Owens were born GIFTED while whites like Pete Rose WORKED THEIR ASSESS OFF.just listen to any NFL game and you can hear this creeping ing in.it oftens sours the experience for me but then i like to live WITH MY EYES OPEN.

the NatGeo channel had some visual buffet doc claiming that Race is merely a SOCIETAL CONSTRUCT and that we can breed like dogs with anyone else on the planet since we are all 99.9999% alike.is that the good news or the bad?

i mark Jan 2oth 2009 the day that the racist substrate officially lost its mind. now them claim that Obama's per forma speech to schoolchildren thsi week is some kinda Nazi Mind Control/sublimnal hypnosis.i wondered what Faux News would talk about once they got tired of kissing the Bush/Cheney collective ass.speaking of Cheney...CHENEY/PALIN 2012??? isn't 2012 supposed to be the End of Days? their election would confirm it.JESUS H. F*CKING CHRIST or KALKI?

DAMN
i am a writer, i write the way other people masturbate, don't snicker. i had a cheap screenwriting program which it spelled out as a Keeper to two different peeps at the local PC repair shop, the good one, guess what? yeah, at least i have back up CDs of all but three of my usually unsold works, but still .oh yes and they , the company, has apparently gone outta business since my e mail bounced back.

IN DEEP SH*T
one other thing...like living in Frisco once the schools open and most of the tourists go home the weather here is PERFECT.so it is like thrusting knitting needles in your eyes, and often ears, to sit at a county meeting and listen to the looming devastation the KALIpornia budget cuts are having.i wrote a very dark and what i thot was a somewhat satirical blog about Alzheimers patients wandering into traffic and onto freeways...adult day care has been cut from five days to three,including Alzheimers clients.there at least a dozen other cuts equally distressing.

GOOD NEWS?
MY EX (*) is moving to Sacramento, which means my one winged eldest son will be going to and maybe get a somewhat decent education at the local schools, if they are still open.
when i was a child KALIpornia and new york were one and two in quality education.i went to public schools all my life and look how i turned out...OKAY YOU CAN SNICKER NOW.did i mention that per CNN & NPR KALIpornia now ranks DEAD LAST IN PER CAPITA STUDENT SPENDING behind all the Deep South Cracker barrel states? SIGH & CRY.

STATE OF CONFUSION
this is the GOP stance on education, charter schools for the rich and poverty with high drop outs (@ 40-50% among the darkies) for the poor while you ship all decent paying jobs offshore with your secret bank accounts...NONE DARE CALL IT TREASON?! do i hold mindless joy at the thot of the next Dim admin in Sacto??? BITTERLY- NO, the same peeps own the Dim O Publicans.there is talk again, even on NPR, about breaking KALIpornia into tow to fiver separate states,it is insane that Wyoming and Montana have the same amount of Senators ad this nuthouse.like all good and even half assed ideas here this will never happen.i think someoen in the 1860s first proposed this as a solution ( Emperor Norton?) and look how far it's come.

if i had anything else to say i have forgotten it. i leave you with a cheery thot,no really!

GONE PHISHING

"Life is like an iceberg,usually 90% is below the surface." Ho Chi Zen

aloha again, didja miss me? perhaps just a lil?

STEAMPUNK'D
no, unlike any Normal Person i did not take a vacation from cable madness and TMI hurly burly. my creaky cranky steam powered Turing Engine vintage PC sprang a leak, a leaky firewall actually and i got Punk'd by some PHISH malware. cost over two hundred to trash and refresh the hard drive, luckily being a mildly paranoid old fart I BACK UP ALMOST EVERYTHING. a line i want to use...last year nearly half my crip friends died or committed suicide (good bye Xmas list!) so this year, in a bid for attention my PC did the same thing, i know, lame heh? so be it.

THANX to friend THOMAS LEAVITT (see Comments) for taking time from his grueling schedule to get me on line late last night, just in time for a bout of carousel insomnia. toss & turn, turn & toss,,,C PAP health benefits IMHO are vastly overrated.ZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz...

R.I.P TED KENNEDY
of sourse Soul Mate AKA PC CASSANDRA, PC as in Prematurely Correct, you might remember that Cassandra was given the gift of prophecy but cursed in that no one would believe her...anyway SM had questions FAQs about various aspects of the Kennedy mythos. i told her as a CRANK NUTJOB CONSPIRACY THEORIST i preferred theories that don't depend on Magic Bullets that violate the laws of physics as we know them. i was okay with this but later mildy pissed to watch a few minutes of the NatGeo mockumentary where people who disagree with the BUSH CRIME FAMILY B.S. about 9-11 are labelled TRUTHERS, just like this racist right wing BIRTHERS nonsense.SIGH, what did i expect...think NatGeo is run by Rupert Murdoch owner of FAUX NEWS (sic).
what else?

are you watching MSNBC? not a lot of news but it's nice to hear opinions i agree with for a change.i listen to NPR but BBC gives you more news bites per minute and TMI about things and places you never hear of. i compare my mind, when well, to flypaper...just about everything sticks to it.
THANX PAGANI and MUCH THANX TO MY RESPECTED ELDER HOWARD who likes my blather.
Pagani thot of Obama as Rodney King like , is that graphic enough?
Thomas made a comparison of the ruthless GOP to DEATH STAR DARTH VADER versus the Dims as BAMBI. i am reminded of some rape victims
RED MEAT & RAPE
that Jaycee Dugard case comes to mind,Stockholm Syndrome yada yada.FAQ violent sex offender is paroled after a dozen years of a 50 YEAR SENTENCE then he and his wife kidnap and rape an 11 year old girl (very photogenic and blonde for the cable audience) and has two children by her. THIS PERP IS ON PAROLE and NOW they worry that he is also a serial killer of prostitutes in nearby Pittsburg!!! EGADS!

betcha this is gonna be RED MEAT for Gov Assh*le and the other Dim O'Publicans who are against releasing a single pothead or shoplifter from our vastly overcrowd prison system despite athree judge federal mandate.SIGH, combine this with the fact that over SEVEN THOUSAND MEXICANS HAVE LOST THIER LIVES DUE TO CARTEL VIOLENCE AND TURF WARS it is to weep.the WAR ON DRUGS is,as usual, another war on the poor. a black comic comic in the 60s, i forget who said-NOW THEY GOT A WAR ON POVERTY TOO? HELL, POVERTY IS ALL WE GOT LEFT!

i got lots more ammo from reading the daily fishwrap but its been 92 & 93 here the last two days BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL and the Lockheed Fire fumes are no longer assaulting me so after i rebuild my Email account i am going shopping for goodies and try to enjoy the day before the inevitable crash from three hours of sleep. BTW does the PT in Physical Therapy really stand for PHYSICAL TORTURE? i got stories...

BTW2
for those of you nitpicker who notice recent changes in the header. i was 'suckered' into blogging, altho is is rather addictive and pleasureable.as part of the OUTREACH efforts of the SANTA CRUZ COUNTY DISABILITY COMMISSION ...www.SCCCOD i suggested we start a blog to fill in the gaps in coverage due to savage and ruthless budget cuts.i was to be one of several people contributing but the monitor of all input etc.
WEEEELLLLLL, the suits in legal pooh poohed the idea, once i had already gotten up & running, ans the management types in Human Resources (sic) said the county had never had a blog and didn't need one now...then my friend and compatriot TICK died andso i am out here naked,on my own,running my big mouth for all and sundry.NOW YOU KNOW... THE REST OF THE STORY (sic).

this IS fun.
