OMG... US Inc, DC, Is An Oppressive Police State!

Yet another person discovers this is NOT the country they teach we live in. You are not free, your rights are all but gone, you're in a surveillance society and your papers please.

Another one bites the dust?

Here is an OWS reporter whom has had their eyes opened:

BRAVE Occupy Wall Street Protester Speaks Out

AMAZING INTERVIEW WITH A PROTESTER FROM NEW YORK WHO WAS ARRESTED FOR FILMING.

The Occupy Wall Street movement is starting to spread across the US and the message from NYC has reached Denver, Chicago and Los Angeles. Many of the protesters are asking for Wall Street to be held accountable for the economic situation. Christina Gonzalez, Occupy Wall Street protestors, speaks out.

Reported by Russia Today no less. Our very own Pravda, MSM, is doing their best not to damage the lies you were indoctrinated, I mean educated with. Google this: "US Nazi Police State"

You are free to do what we tell you to do!
- Bill Hicks

Artist: Pink Floyd: Brain Damage/Eclipse

I'm just going to keep throwing these pebbles into the pond. The ripples spreading out across the water are a beautiful thing...

Artists are those within our society that have a special insight, understanding, knowledge... vision... that the rest of us do not see with such ease as they do. In many cases these artists also have the ability to express and share what they know with the rest of us via “artistic expression”. Their gift is two-fold. They have the vision and are able to express it artistically with the rest of us to be become recognized by the masses for their gift as an artist.

There are also many that have the “vision” but not the gift for expressing it. Would they also be considered an “Artist”?

Alas for these artists what they get to see and know many times is not easy to carry. Just holding a vision of theirs can be... personally challenging? Problematic? Hard to accept? Hence the rise of what we all know as the “tortured” artist. Some one staggering around under the weight of what the rest of us do not carry.

We all know this instinctive these people are the visionaries and prophets among us. Not only do they deserve latitude from us but, more importantly, they deserve our attention, to be heard, what they are expressing we can all learn from their gift.

Pink Floyd: Brain Damage

The lunatic is on the grass
The lunatic is on the grass
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs
Got to keep the loonies on the path
The lunatic is in the hall
The lunatics are in my hall
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more
And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forbodings too
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon
The lunatic is in my head
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'till I'm sane
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me.
And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon

Pink Floyd: Eclipse

All that you touch
All that you see
All that you taste
All that you feel.
All that you love
All that you hate
All you distrust
All that you save.
All that you give
All that you deal
All that you buy
Beg borrow or steal.
All you create
All you destroy
All that you do
All that you say.
All that you eat
And everyone you meet
All that you slight
And everyone you fight.
All that is now
All that is gone
All that's to come
And everything under the sun is in tune
But the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

"There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark."

Pink Floyd -Eclipse //Dark Side Of The Moon

Pink Floyd with David Gilmour in concert PULSE.
1994 Earls Court - London.
The final of Dark Side Of The Moon(1973).

Eclipse (Dark Side Of The Moon 1973)

Home, home again
I like to be here when i can
When i come home cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells

Finally! Someone Has Addressed And Solved A Major Concern In America Today

In America today Lord knows just how many problems are upon us. Here is a shining example that all it takes is just one person at times to completely solve and obliterate a particular problem, issue and/or concern upon us here in America.

Now I know there might be one or two bigger issues that need resolving but still... this ranks right up there as one of the biggest upon us.

Let this be a lesson and example for us all. Just one person is able to take down and resolve serious issues!

How Far Can You Get From McDonald's?

As I hurtled down the highway, a pair of golden arches crept over the horizon, and the proverbial lightbulb smacked me in the forehead. To gauge the creep of cookie-cutter commercialism, there’s no better barometer than McDonald’s – ubiquitous fast food chain and inaugural megacorporate colonizer of small towns nationwide.

So, I set out to determine the farthest point from a Micky Dee’s – in the lower 48 states, at least. This endeavor required information, and the nice folks at AggData were kind enough to provide it to me: a complete list of all 13,000-or-so U.S. restaurants, in CSV format, geolocated for maximum convenience. From there, a bit of software engineering gymnastics, and…

Behold, a visualization of the contiguous United States, colored by distance to the nearest domestic McDonald’s! ...

No longer will I lose sleep over this one... Thank You!

Bank Of America Walkout: Hit Them Where It Hurts

You've all heard the expression "Money talks and Bullshit walks"?? You can complain to your "Representatives" (Using that label very loosely here). You can "Protest" and you can "Occupy". It's ALL talk. 80-90% "Talked" No to Obama care. We got it anyways did we not? 80-90% "Talked" No to bailouts. They got them anyway did they not? Protests and the Occupy movement are being met with brutal Military/Police violent oppression. I'd say they're all a big "Fuck You" if I ever heard one.

Why are we even talking to these assholes?? STOP TALKING! There are other quite effective ways to make your point that will easily drop them to their knees begging your forgiveness. The "Bank of America Walkout" is a case in point. Ahhh... Bank of America... couldn't happen to a more sleazy, corrupt, greedy and treasonous bank. They are among the slimiest of the slime. Doing the "America" label a major dissing. Cancel all your BoA accounts.. pull all your money from the slime pit. Better yet.. deposit it into a community local independent bank. You want to protest all that "Wall Street" corruption and criminality? Don't tell me you have an "Occupy Tent Pitched" yet your money is in BoA?!?!? Make the money talk! Discover that the "Free Market" really is a good thing. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving... shouldn't we be roasting and carving Turkeys?

Bank of America Walkout

http://roydeyoung.typepad.com/my_weblog/2009/05/index.html
If you are like me, you are concerned, frustrated, and a bit confused that Bank of America has been allowed, and enabled, by the U.S. government to suck the life out of our financial system. In addition, if you are like me you are very pissed-off that BOA has recently sent out letters to customers, like myself, that our credit card interest rates have nearly tripled. Because they feel like it. Regardless of the customer's history and good standing with the bank.

Both personally and professionally I believe this brand has become a joke, a picture of sleaze that even Larry Flint can not compete with. At least Larry Flint makes money the old fashioned way, he earns it! BOA has to steal their money from us to continue to fuel their failing machine.

I believe it is time that we Bank of America customers tell these pirates that we are not going to take this anymore and we are going to give our business to the smaller regional and local banks that deserve the business.

I ask each of you to close your accounts at BOA and walk out the door this week. Tell them goodbye, and that we are not going to bend-over for them anymore and take this crap! If we all do this it will send a message that extortion-based banking is no longer acceptable in this new era of customer empowerment. I also ask that each of you share my new interpretation, with your friends and family, of what I believe the acronym BOA should now stand for, as well as the new logo Bank of America should employ since it is much more fitting and aligned with their business model.

Bank of America: Bad for America

http://seiu.org/bofa Taxpayers have given Bank of America $25 billion in bailout funds to help jumpstart our economy, but instead the bank has misspent on executive salaries and corporate jets. Then Bank of America took even more money from cash-strapped states by not paying for workers healthcare.

Its time for Bank of America to use its taxpayer-funded windfall to support a real economic recovery and provide health care for its 247,000 workers—or give the money back.

Ron Paul: Principle, Integrity, Honors His Oath... This You Call Fringe and Flake?

You're absolutely right! Ron Paul is fringe and flake. He has principle, Integrity, honors his oath of office, rock solid voting record supporting the Constitution and America, defender of liberties and freedom, no closet full of skeletons, you actually can believe what he says???

Absolutely right... He is a flake and fringe candidate! Virtually no other candidate can make that claim or has that kind of weird going for them. They are all "Normal". No principle, no integrity, no honoring the oath of office, no voting in support of the Constitution and America, no defender of Liberty nor Freedom and they have closets.

The man who gets up there and speaks the truth is a madman insane no chance of winning! However tell me lies and offer me empty rhetoric lip service deserves my respect and my vote they are "top tier front runners"?!?!?

Duh.. why do we have all these problems now?

Ron Paul Message to Occupy Wall Street- LETS END THE FED!

This is America... ordinary "We the People" are supposed to be volunteering to hold down government positions as our civil duty. You know.. Statesmen.. not professional sleazy career politicians? Ron Paul lacks the "Polish" compared to the other professional used car salesman up there top tier. Who do you want running the country? Honest ordinary people of principle, integrity honoring their oath of office or them who would sell their mother out if the price was right?

Attention Activists, R3volutionaries And Just Plain Trouble Makers!

If you are looking for activities, things, you can do to defeat this beast upon us and take your country back here is a list of seven activities that you may want to consider:

Want To Defeat The Banks? Stop Participating In The System!

Most social and political systems today are designed around collectivist methodologies. Their primary tool is centralization of power, and the removal of choice from the public consciousness. We are made to believe that the establishment is necessary for our survival, and that to abandon it would mean certain destruction. We are taught that the individual is subservient and inconsequential in the face of the state. This is simply not so. Like the traveler in “Before The Law”, we have been defeated by our own expectations of how the law (or justice) works. We sit and wait for permission, when we should be charging through the gates and taking what is rightfully ours.

My thats a nice worthless FIAT official paper money note you have. However I will be using an alternative to your sanctioned WMD. The FED note becomes meaningless when large numbers start moving away from it.

I'm sorry.. I don't have any money to pay you with.. I do have these Federal Reserve Notes however?

Security!

They have rigged the game, corrupted the system and made you all dependent upon them. Stop playing the game. Stop giving them consent. Stop supporting this beast that is upon us all.

Open up new avenues, possibilities, alternatives. Give others a better choice by your actions. This is America, you know, We The People? We're in charge here not a bunch of sleazy criminal corrupt assholes in a foreign country we all fondly refer to as Washington DC. Withdraw your consent. Withdraw your cooperation. The beast will die on its own.

Artist: Youngbloods: Get Together

We can love one another.. or hate one another. We can help each other.. or kill each other. One has a future, the other does not.

If we don't end war, war will end us.
― H.G. Wells

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.
- Jimi Hendrix

Youngbloods: Get Together:

Love is but the song we sing,
And fear's the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Know the dove is on the wing
And you need not know why
C'mon people now,
Smile on your brother
Ev'rybody get together
Try and love one another right now
Some will come and some will go
We shall surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moments sunlight
Fading in the grass
C'mon people now,
Smile on your brother
Ev'rybody get together
Try and love one another right now
If you hear the song I sing,
You must understand
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both
It's there at your command
C'mon people now,
Smile on your brother
Ev'rybody get together
Try and love one another right now
Right now
Right now!

Barry McGuire: Eve of Destruction

The eastern world, it is exploding
Violence flarin', bullets loadin'
You're old enough to kill, but not for votin'
You don't believe in war, but what's that gun you're totin'
And even the Jordan River has bodies floatin'

But you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend
Ah, you don't believe
We're on the eve
of destruction.

Don't you understand what I'm tryin' to say
Can't you feel the fears I'm feelin' today?
If the button is pushed, there's no runnin' away
There'll be no one to save, with the world in a grave
[Take a look around ya boy, it's bound to scare ya boy]

And you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend
Ah, you don't believe
We're on the eve
of destruction.

Yeah, my blood's so mad feels like coagulatin'
I'm sitting here just contemplatin'
I can't twist the truth, it knows no regulation.
Handful of senators don't pass legislation
And marches alone can't bring integration
When human respect is disintegratin'
This whole crazy world is just too frustratin'

And you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend
Ah, you don't believe
We're on the eve
of destruction.

Think of all the hate there is in Red China
Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama
You may leave here for 4 days in space
But when you return, it's the same old place
The poundin' of the drums, the pride and disgrace
You can bury your dead, but don't leave a trace
Hate your next-door neighbor, but don't forget to say grace
And… tell me over and over and over and over again, my friend
You don't believe
We're on the eve
Of destruction
Mm, no no, you don't believe
We're on the eve
of destruction.

Gibson Guitar: Welcome To Nazi Fascist USA Today!

Here is yet another example that our Federal government is Nazi, Fascist and Criminal. This time a major successful American business is being falsely targeted for, yes, Nazi, Fascist and criminal reasons. The Federal government is Nazi, fascist and criminal... not Gibson if this needs to be clarified.

US Inc., DC, Neo-Nazi world headquarters, pretender usurpers of America, has been targeting individuals and small entities with their Nazi fascist criminal activity for a long time now. Just ask any 6 year old that had their lemonade stand shut-down with extreme, over the top, are you out of your mind?, police swat team force about that.

The Nazi's just love making everyone criminal, including the six year olds. What they do is selectively enforce who will, and will not, be prosecuted. Very convenient. If you are favored by "the party" you receive no government terrorizing. If however you are not, the full force of insane selective law enforcement is brought down on you, over the top, did we really need swat teams guns drawn on children because they were selling whole milk?

Yes.. yes we did for your protection! The gun at your child's head is for your protection! They have done this relatively unchallenged for so long they are now going after bigger targets.

If you have not heard about the US Inc., DC, terrorizing of Gibson Guitars you should check it out. Gibson was shut down for crimes they did not commit and, get this, have been told by US Inc, DC, to take their business to Madagascar! Leave America!?!?

Thank God we have US Inc, DC., fixing the economic/employment problems here in America. Understand only Gibson was targeted by this obscure unclear law, not other companies doing the same thing. Gibson was shut down US Inc., DC, federal Nazi swat teams confiscate company assets, do millions in damage, yet the CEO does not even know, is unsure, what the crime and charge is?

What?!?!

CEO of Gibson: Feds Told Us to Leave U.S.

Last week Federal agents raided two Gibson guitar factories in Tennessee because materials that were used by the guitar maker were allegedly breaking international laws. The law that Gibson allegedly broke was that they used wood that wasn't finished by workers in India, and the process was being completed in plant in Tennessee, therefore making it illegal. Alex Jones, radio host of the Alex Jones Show, tells us if Federal agents raids are on the rise.

Gibson Guitar Corp. Responds to Federal Raid

Henry Juszkiewicz, Chairman and CEO of Gibson Guitar Corp., has responded to the August 24 raid of Gibson facilities in Nashville and Memphis by the Federal Government. In a press release, Juszkiewicz said: "Gibson is innocent and will fight to protect its rights. Gibson has complied with foreign laws and believes it is innocent of ANY wrong doing. We will fight aggressively to prove our innocence."

Left, Right, Left, Right, Left, Right... Hello?

Recently a political cartoon came across my radar. It was an image of a marching soldier. One leg was labeled Democrat the other Republican. The image said it all quite succinct. Hello?

Artists... they got that visionary/prophetic thing going on... you gotta love em.

I tried looking back and finding that image. Alas... even with my "smokin" FIOS connection to the net I was unable to find it.

The image was making a very clear statement. We are being marched.

The Democrats messed it up royal I'm voting Republican!

The Republicans messed it up royal I'm voting Democrat!

The Democrats messed it up royal I'm voting Republican!

The Republicans messed it up royal I'm voting Democrat!

The Democrats messed it up royal I'm voting Republican!

The Republicans messed it up royal I'm voting Democrat!

It's always a vote for change... direction not wanted. The direction never changes.

Hello?

After several, sigh, decades of this "Left, Right" march the artists are now writing on the wall about it. We are being marched, that is obvious in hindsight. The big question is not are we being marched, as it is clear we are, but... WHERE are they marching us?

The answer to that is highly debatable and purely speculative as we are marching in a world of smoke and mirrors.

A march it definitely is. The direction, destination clearly not wanted, it is always voted against.

We march closer every election though it is not wanted.

Hello?

Linkin Park: Numb

I'm tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless, lost under the surface
Don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)

[Chorus:]
I've become so numb, I can't feel you there
Become so tired, so much more aware
I'm becoming this, all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

Can't you see that you're smothering me,
Holding too tightly, afraid to lose control?
'Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you.
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you.
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)
And every second I waste is more than I can take.

[Chorus:]
I've become so numb, I can't feel you there,
Become so tired, so much more aware
I'm becoming this, all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you.

And I know
I may end up failing too.
But I know
You were just like me with someone disappointed in you.

[Chorus:]
I've become so numb, I can't feel you there,
Become so tired, so much more aware.
I'm becoming this, all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you.

[Chorus:]
I've become so numb, I can't feel you there.
(I'm tired of being what you want me to be)
I've become so numb, I can't feel you there.
(I'm tired of being what you want me to be)

Pink Floyd: Echoes

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant tide
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine.

And no-one called us to the land
And no-one knows the wheres or whys
But something stirs and something tries
And starts to climb towards the light

Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can

And no-one calls us to move on
And no-one forces down our eyes
And no-one speaks and no-one tries
And no-one flies around the sun

Cloudless everyday you fall upon my waking eyes
inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning

And no-one sings me lullabies
And no-one makes me close my eyes
And so I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky
