You hear in the distance the chirping of a song bird.

U.S. Gun Obsession —

Actually, I believe America’s gun obsession is rooted in the Constitution. “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.” There’s historical reasoning behind America’s tight grip on the right to bear arms, but it’s not rooted […]

Insurrection vs. BLM Protests —

God I love reading the news. /s “The federal government was unprepared for this insurrection, even though it was planned in plain sight on social media for the world to see,” Maloney said. “And despite all the military and law enforcement resources our government can call upon in a crisis, security collapsed in the face […]

COVID-19 Daily Deaths as of 2021/04/07 —

I find it interesting how the death rate was literally the highest at 2021/01/20, then started to fall drastically. Hmm, what happened on 2021/01/20? P.S. Annual death rate of influenza (the flu) in the U.S. is ~36,500. That’s an average taken from between 2010-2020. COVID-19 death rate is currently 560,000 for around 15 months. That’s […]

Split-brain —

What is split-brain? Difference in interpretation of laws, morals and ethics across a nation Cannot identify which political party is fighting for what is “right and just”, even when both parties claim to be doing just that Both parties accuse each other of being delusional, hypocritical fucks The liberty, freedom and security of the people […]

Real Talk —

“The strategy of lying about voter fraud, delegitimizing the election outcome and trying to suppress votes has been unmasked for the illegitimate attack on our democracy that it is, and I think that it opens a lot more doors to real conversations about how to fix our voting system and root out this cancer,” said […]

Modern Survival —

I feel like we’re all playing a game of survival. I used to play “war” with my friend John Ortiz in 2nd grade. We would walk around the school’s field at recess, pretending to shoot bad guys, and occasionally get blown up by a grenade. I guess you could call it a survival game. Fortunately […]

The Gas Light is Out —

In November 2016 I was feeling pretty bummed, betrayed and worried about the next 4 years. I was at my Mom’s (an avid Trump supporter) house and she told me, “Don’t worry. You’ll see, in 4 years the world is going to be in such a better place than it is now, just trust me. […]

Narrative to sow distrust —

“What does that do to our democracy as we play out this process? What does it do to the belief in the system when 70 million people think the election was stolen,” Tolson said, referring to the popular vote total for Trump. “To me that’s the danger of this narrative, that’s the danger of this […]

Fraud —

Some quotes from r/conservative… “Even if he has in fact lost, letting the recounts and the challenges proceed is vital to fair elections and should be done. The voting process(es) is(are) broken and should be nationalized. Whether it’s systemic, prevalent, or isolated to one or two unique circumstances, it’s quite obvious that voter fraud happens. […]

It’s all in the Gameplan —

This… Do you think, for one solitary moment, that a leader OF ANY CALIBER being so recklessly irresponsible is somehow excusable? That one who SUPPOSEDLY understands how powerful their actions and words are, yet continues, day after day, to deconstruct the foundation of a people — should be allowed at ANY CAPACITY? Countless sacred and […]

9/11/2020 —

I compiled this audio clip in 2004. The eerie background noise is sound from the planet Saturn that NASA had captured. The clicking sound is RF frequency bleed-over from my (then current) cellphone into my bass guitar pickups, sounding over my amp. Everything else was my mind trying to cope with the after-effects of 9/11. […]

Abolishing Hate —

There are too many fingers pointing at too many discriminations. We cannot play Whac-a-Mole any longer. It’s time for people to understand that all of the injustices we are fighting to abolish have a common root: Hate. We need to abolish hate. If we cut this poisonous weed off at the root we will kill […]

Black Lives Matter —

I hate this term. It gives the impression that someone else’s perspective is at center stage and they’re feeling sympathetic toward the ‘poor little dark skinned people’, the ones who need to be stuck up for. “You matter too, sweetie!” ..makes me wanna wretch. What I’m saying is, I’m sad that we have not evolved […]

Voting Machines —

“Michael I. Shamos, a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University who is a proponent of electronic voting and the examiner of electronic voting systems for Pennsylvania, stated “It’s the most severe security flaw ever discovered in a voting system.” Douglas W. Jones, a professor of computer science at the University of Iowa, stated […]

Mudvayne – “Choices” —

A song from a long time ago that couldn’t be more relevant today in the United States (and around the world).. “Choices” (Mudvayne): Leaders are guilty of nothing They’re perfectly insane But if they’d point the finger at themselves Who would be left to blame Lead into grace Lead to corruption Ini-Mini-Miny-Mo A truth or […]
