I thought I’d start the day by jumping in on the political opinion-party. I see all of you sporting those smooth party hats as you post your thoughts on Facebook — while you may or may not know, I am a party hat collector and self-assigned critic.
I cannot sit in silence any longer – give me one of those sweet party hats.
Okay – queue my alter-ego, MRickfred:
In the beginning, there was “Reality TV.” From the moment I first witnessed these disempowering, mindless, and retina burning images on that box with a screen – I hated it. I truly hated everything about it.
In large part, all those shows are nothing but a condensed, glamorizing portrayal of one of the most negative aspects of the human race – meaningless conflict with one another. The sort of conflict that points fingers, places blame before attempting resolution and is driven by illusionary beliefs and ego.
Often times, the individual speaking the loudest walks away from the verbal mud-slinging with a warped sense of victory.
That is exactly the subconscious influence we need to evolve our species, right?
So… this three-ring circus they’ve given us (also known as the presidential campaign), is an improved/more wide-spread version of Jersey Shore or The Real World/Road Rules Spaghetti Banquet Luncheon Slam a Fork in my Temple Challenge.
It’s the same thing but with added drama because we’re supposed to believe that one of these humans is going to be the difference maker. The chosen one. The hero we are told we need to lead us to a land of prosperity as we all recite the pledge of allegiance together in perfect harmony.
I hate to crash the party but, all these heads that are talking during the debates might as well just recite the alphabet for 2 hours. It would have the same value and insight as the syllables they are using now.
Words words words words stuff stuff Syrian refugees, border patrol, build a wall and shoot people, this is why my opponent sucks, this is why I don’t, this is why I didn’t like September 11, 2001, this is why terrorists are bad, remember Ebola? Zika is a scary word so you should fear it, the world is dangerous, tax breaks for the middle class, tax hikes for the wealthy until the wealthy change the definition of the word hike, my opponent did this and that makes him unfit to be commander in chief, he has a past, she has a past, he has a past, she has a past, this and this and this and this…and never a true, sincere, genuine, LOGICAL approach to any of the REAL issues facing this country and/or the human race.
Real issues such as –
- The Public School curriculum in the United States and its direct link to the continuous (seemingly deliberate and manufactured) decline of intelligence in this country. The continuous rise in children with developmental disorders, cognitive skills, social fears, lack of interests/hobbies, diagnosed cases in the ASD realm and, at (or near) an all-time high of medicated children in public school.
Profit and Control.
- The war on drugs being a complete waste of time, money, resources, and destroying millions of families in the process. Still not treating drug addiction as a mental health condition and keeping it primarily in the criminal justice system.
Profit and Control.
- The Cannabis-Sativa plant is not being utilized to its fullest ability due to misinformation, lies, and deceit in the name of profit and control by the corporations that benefit from the plant remaining side-lined. By the way, the one and only benefit they receive is monetary. Thus, once again, it’s all about –
Profit and Control.
- The pharmaceutical industry – the industry that creates drugs to maintain (or increase) their customer base as opposed to elevating and/or treating existing ailments.
In the book Selling Sickness – How the world’s biggest pharmaceutical companies are turning us all into patients by Ray Moynihan and Alan Cassels.
Ray and Alan lay it out perfectly in the first 2 pages of the prologue stating:
“The marketing strategies of the world’s biggest drug companies now aggressively target the healthy and the well. The ups and downs of daily life have become mental disorders, common complaints are transformed into frightening conditions, and more and more ordinary people are turned into patients. With promotional campaigns that exploit our deepest fears of death, decay, and disease – the $500 billion pharmaceutical industry is literally changing what it means to be human. Rightly rewarded for saving life and reducing suffering, the global drug giants are no longer content selling medicines only to the ill. Because as Wall Street knows well, there’s a lot of money to be made by telling healthy people they are sick.”
Book plug for Selling Sickness
“A controversial and provocative look at how the pharmaceutical companies are creating and marketing illness.”
-O, The Oprah Magazine
For instance – “Do you feel down? Do you sometimes feel alone? Do you feel like you’re not yourself? Do you feel as if nobody understands what you’re going through? Then talk to your doctor about the new and improved brain-altering, emotion-destroying super pill. Reclaim your life with just 20mg/day to alleviate that destructive, psychological thought process manufactured by (Insert any of the greed-driven, lack of any moral compass pharmaceutical company names here).”
Queue the walking on the beach, slow-motion rock skipping, and marshmallow roasting images.
Profit and Control.
- The Big Six. Basically, all the news and information you see and hear on a daily basis is from one of these 6 major media companies.
According to Wikipedia – In 1983, 90% of US media was controlled by 50 companies. Today – that 90% is controlled by the Big Six.
Comcast, The Walt Disney Company, News Corporation, Time Warner, Viacom, and CBS Corporation are the Big Six.
“The News” isn’t really the news. It’s what they accept and what they want in order to please their shareholders, advertisers, and/or corporate owners. The Big Six control everything you see on television. Keep this in mind when you find yourself questioning a news anchor about one of the many illogical stories they feed us.
There are obviously many more extremely important issues that the current system barely even pretends to address. It’s tough to help everyone when your main focus is on those rich and powerful bastards – they expect a lot, I am assuming. Interesting though that they have no trouble at all stealing from our paychecks every 2 weeks. Don’t get me wrong now – I am fully on board with income tax if it’s being spent wisely but, why are you taxing me again when I spend the money you already taxed?
Okay – shifting gears here before I go outside and begin dodging bullets.
Donald Trump isn’t even a real candidate for President. It’s a massive Broadway play that is using the entire planet as a stage. What a show! Who knew Trump was such a terrific actor? Maybe we will get to see more of his antics when he accepts his future grammy for best supporting role in a distraction series.
I realize he’s up there. He’s talking. Standing at a podium as he colorfully displays his plan to take over the universe, using nothing but his lasso(Made in China), and improve every aspect of it – all before lunch on his first day in office.
Next day – “Trump Scandal surfaces!”
America – “He is an ass! Yeah but Bernie is a socialist.”
“Yeah well, Hillary should be in Prison carving out a tunnel like Andy.”
“Yeah but, yeah but, yeah but, yeah but…
“The news,” says he is winning primaries and leading in certain poles. He’s campaigning. I understand all of that. I do.
I am also not buying it.
You can call me a conspiracy nut, out-of-touch hippie, anti-establishment nonconformist anti-American stupid-face if you’d like. Phased-reader doesn’t even budge. Believe me, I don’t care what you think of me. I respect your opinion. I won’t argue with you to try to make you see things my way. I will gladly have a discussion with you about anything but, we will most likely have to respect and understand we have a different, subjective perception of this place. And that’s completely fine.
I am not voting (as of right now) because I see nothing to vote for. All I see is more of the same – lies and deception by the entire political system. This has been the same Broadway play every 4 years of my life – literally.
Of course, I don’t remember all of them – but the reason I say that is because John F. Kennedy was the last real president this country had.
And he warned us about this stuff. He wanted certain organizations within the political establishment dismantled.
He was murdered shortly after voicing these things.
It doesn’t matter who is sitting in that office. Besides – it’s already been decided.
Again – call me a tin-foil hat wearing alien signaler whose biggest fear is a cosmic prostate exam. It’s okay. I will laugh. You will laugh. We will end our interaction with high vibrational energy and have a great night either way.
I am definitely up for a conversation about this too. Maybe you can help me see something that I am unaware of?
Thanks for reading, my friends.
As Always, Much Love.
