    does it really matter where the phrase originated?
    “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche”
    “….and then they came for me”

    US population – 336 million
    government employees – 24 million
    312 million citizens defeated by 24 million government (local, state, federal) employees

    did you notice neither Hedges nor Noh took the position that the citizens of the west should actively join the resistance? gotta keep the brioche buttered

    Now for the importan news:
    alabama defeated kentucky @ kentucky!
    i wonder how much kentucky got paid to take that ass whippin

    yesterday evening human beings across the united states were abused by a family member as a result of a football team losing a contest, a game

    less important news, a head of broccoli was $6.00 a pound and turnips were over $3.00 a pound in the local supermarket. Stunningly, rutabagas were also above $3.00 a pound. Rutabagas $3.29 a pound!

    can we please put aside the BS that anything the insurgency seated within the Beltway does uses taxpayer dollars? do you have the same feeling about the US Federal Reserve Bank that came to my mind when i first heard of the musical Hamilton? where is Burr when you need him?

    “Objectivity has got to go.”
    “free itself from this notion of objectivity to develop a sense of social justice.”
    “I’m a Biased Journalist and I’m Okay With That.”
    these are the calls to democracy. democracy – the bastard child of tyranny

    please note the second quote does not call to establish social justice but a “sense” of social justice. i am not a journalist and i too am biased. My bias is bound to that which we identify as the Bill of Rights within The Constitution of the United States of America. In terms of the ideal, citizenship within The Constitutional Framework, The Nation and Her people, individual human rights must be upheld and defended whether an individual is withinin the minority or the majority.

    Let us cast aside and indeed trample under foot the idea that The United States of America is a democracy. A simple review of the Tenth Amendment, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” is enough to demolish the concept of majority rule within the United States federal government.

    Determining the outcome of a vote in any circumstance is a matter of logic and mathematics. A proposition is put forward a decision is to be made and a vote is taken. A point is placed on a number line and a measurement is made. To simplify the conditions a set of variables is stated, nay=n – yea=y -abstention=a(a=o), such that n≠y = y≠n and n+a=n – y+a=y
    The vote is taken abstention is noted and removed from the equation and n<=>y conversely y<=>n or
    n=y = y=n=null point
    n>y The nay takes the point
    y>n The yeah takes the point
    Null point and the proposition is discarded or the vote is taken again. Governance follows the vote and in the nation i am humbled to be a citizen of discipline, courage, honor and compromise temper the nature of the society. Providence Be Willing. The talley of a vote is either accurate or inaccurate, nay or yea or null point and is an objective measure. When the talley of a vote is not objective it reveals fraud.

    is there any device in the history of humanity that damns democracy to a greater degree than the guillotine?
    Do you think the journalists quoted desire subjectivity or democracy in the hands of the deplorable or in the hands of a faux majority?
    Stop looking to the past, the challenge is at hand. Vote with your life, today. Reap that which you sow.
    Courage or Cowardice. Defense of the weak or tyranny of the faux majority are your options.

    May 4, 1970, the day my generation decided to go along to get along.

    D ask those in your circle “have you read Lord of the Flies, Animal Farm and 1984”. Ask them “do you remember the name of Billy Budd’s nemesis?” or “name one of Fenimore Cooper’s novels or the name of a character from one of those novels”
    “Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up” – time to join Mucho Mas and share a paregoric Pall Mall
    remember Thoreau’s response to Emerson, “What are you doing Out there?”

    have you experienced the foul odor of terror? did you experience a draft physical during the era of Viet Nam? did you spend a whole day with one hundred human beings facing the probalility their life would end within six months? once you have the experienced of the smell of death your olfactory sense never recovers. did you have a member of the US Special Forces explain Fragging to you, and the necessity of it in relation to the ROTC fools? do you have any sense of how accurate Martyanov’s description of US Command Structure is?
    May 4, 1970 may help to clarify your vision of the lives you so readily condemn

    i am to believe that one of the most financially secure citizens of the United States ability to secure competent legal representation is as shown over the last seven years.
    i am to believe that any honorable member of the bar would not immediately resign and refund all fees to a client who would chose self incrimination within a kangaroo court.
    Mr. Trump may very well be an idiot and the man may also be the tool of a political faction. I lack the intellectual gravitas to accept he is a willing martyr.

    Central Bank Digital Currency – Central Banks within the western power structure are the engine whose purpose is to drive growth. Growth of industry, growth of trade, growth of ever expanding debt based capital is the function of the institutions. When i hear or read an opinion that central banks will create a prison planet by limiting growth and access to markets i am highly sceptical. i also know the source is one who lacks the courage to acknowledge there is another foot with another boot. Anyone who believes 15%, perhaps 1%, of earth’s population will control the universe is lacking in depth of perception or has an ulterior motive. Ask yourself this question, “Whose bread is this person attempting to butter”? There are two types of prison. In one setting the constraints are within the walls and in the other the constraints are outside of the walls. The paradox of course is who is the prisoner and who is free.

    Watters “I was told”

    i saw pictures and videos of members of the United States armed forces patroling and, thus by their presence, protecting poppy fields in Afghanistan. These images were created during the presidency of Donald J. Trump.

    What i did not see was a video of Donald J. Trump acknowledging the corruption and bringing forth court martial procedings for anyone in the command structure of the U.S. armed forces. Lest someone raise an objection. One of the functions of the Executive Branch under Article II of the United States Constitution is found in Article 2, the president is the commander and chief of the Army of the United States.

    oxymoron if i am “possibly another” i ask your forgiveness.

    When i was five my father was the chief deputy sheriff of a county that emcompassed a large southern metropolitan area. On a particular evening our family was loaded into our Plymouth Suburban station wagon and driven to witness a cultural event. Due to his postion we were able to park in a moderately close position to the extravaganza.

    I have no matrilineal claim to anything and i am caucasian yet this cultural event was directly related to a part of my identity. The KKK sponsored this event and it was staged just down the expressway service road from my families place of worship.
    I grew up in a region of the world that Righteously hated Jews, Niggers and Catholics. My father made damn sure i learned this lesson about the social construct i was immersed in. Politics being what it is and hatred being what it is there are two things i never told anyone as a child. I never told anyone my last name and i never told anyone i was Roman Catholic. I have understood that compared to my sisters and brothers with dark skin judicious use of language afforded me a shield from hated. I did not have to say “I’m Catholic” and that omission gave me the safety of just another little white boy. My black sisters and brothers have no such luxury.
    There are two things i know for sure. First i know being hated for belonging to a certain class of individuals. I also know being hated for not hating another class of human beings.
    Watching a cross burn down the street from your church brings a certain clarity of mind. In that state of clarity i know there is no “Righteous Hatred” or “Cultural Superiority”.

    as i said regulary as a child and from a now cemented realization, “forgive me for i have sinned”.

    Words for today:
    Sect –
    1. A group of people forming a distinct unit within a larger group by virtue of certain refinements or distinctions of belief or practice.
    2. A faction united by common interests or beliefs.

    Sectarian –
    1. Adhering or confined to the dogmatic limits of a sect or denomination; partisan.
    2. Narrow-minded; parochial.

    Myopia – Lack of discernment or long-range perspective in thinking or planning.

    Those who become slaves to the Enlightenment may indeed be divided into sects. The sectarian divisions range from clueless arrogance to dogmatic, inquisitorial fanaticism. A trait common to all in service to the Enlightenment is myopia, though the depth of the malady differs among the various sects.

    The most romantic state of learning is discovering how much more there is to learn. The archaeologists were pretty smug before the discovery of Göbekli Tepe, which also put a hitch in the get-a-long of the Egyptologists. Now, with the aid of LIDAR and satellite imagery, the jungles of South America are yielding information that shakes the foundations of the history of the Americas.
    The problem with this new knowledge is the reduction of profit to and status of the accredited intelligentsia. Most of the “knowledge” held by the western mind is facing the same process. To paraphrase, “it’s hard to be humble when you’re Enlightened in every way”.

    Saturday and Sunday millions are drawn to their television sets morfphing their identity into that of a faceless crowd wearing a team jersey. Hour after hour multinational corporations pay to insure the identity loss drug is freely dispensed. James Taylor described a similar experience: “No I do not dig the big time rock n roll, sit in the dark be somebody else”. What a wonder is the satellite broadcast of faux pagentry and talk, nostalgia inducing sounds and talk and talk and talk at radio wavelengths. Please do not forget you are a profit center and the marketing arm needs your help. Proudly say to yourself, “I Am A Profit Center”. Careful! don’t injure yourself patting yourself on the back!!!!!

    The multinational corporations that dispense the identity loss drug and work assidiously to assure total lack of satisfaction might be compared to pin worms. What do these multinational corporations do with the profits so willingly provided to them? Profit driven, the sponsor of the intertainment you deserve invest in starving, maiming, poisoning and murdering children. C’mon man 10% for the Big Guy. This market has more potential than character assasination!

    Do we have nine hundred and fifty years?

    1979 saw the beginning of a thirteen year investigation into the truth concerning a rather famous celebrity. There was little fanfare in 1992 when the results of the investigation were revealed to a less than curious humanity. This lack of interest is quite understandable, the celebrity in question was convicted in the year 1633. That’s right girls and boys three hundred and forty six years after conviction and an additional thirteen years of investigation later the celebrity was absolved of his transgression. The ruling of the investigation? “It moves”. This is the world of the “Enlightenment”. This is the world where dogma, DOGMA to be more accurate, still holds the reigns. The celebrated “Reigns of Reason”.

    Were there brown or red human beings whose cultures had produced astronomical maps and histories prior to the year 1633? Were there black human beings in Africa whose culture had knowledge of our solar system and the local cluster long before the charge of heresy? Simply stated, yes.

    The celebrated celebrities of our day have placed The Enlightenment and It’s (purposeful choice of diction) bastard child, Western Civilization, at the center of the universe. The Roberts and Hedges are members of the Moral Inquisition and just like the Inquisitors of 1633 no evidence contrary to the Moral Burden will be tolerated. That there has been lies, torture and genocides is of no consquence when your emotions and lack of spiritual awareness are central to the functioning of EVERYTHING. The logic goes something in the neighborhood of:
    “Yes we wiped out the cultures of two continents and carried centuries of created value back to our lair, let bygones be bygones. The important thing to consider is that we must murder and rob the Chinese. We are at the Center of an expanding Universe and our position must be mantained. What is to be done with the populists, the socialists those huddled masses yearning to breathe free? Murder them and their fanciful yet unenlightened philosophies and cultures. Taking profit from a closed system is our moral imperative.”

    “White Hats” The moral elite who have starved, maimed and poisoned infants, children and their mothers for profit. Those paragons of virtue who see the value of Their portfolio diminishing and are driven to ensure the profitability of that subsection of immorality. Theodore Parker be damned.

    The “White Hats” have one intent, keeping their bread buttered.
    The spice must flow.
    Anyone Enlightened can see that.

    little comfort is to be found in the realization that with two hundred and fifty thousand years of the selection process humanity has managed to raise the specie’s intellectual capacaity to a level on par with that of the yeasts

    at least when the yeasts poison themselves humanity may have wine and beer. Proof, as Doctor Franklin noted, that God loves man.

    Too Long for Sure-2
    Reconaissance in Force: an attack by a large force for the purpose of discovering the position and strength of an enemy. Please note that Webster does not use “armed force” in the definition. Let one be reminded that the armed force of Ukraine at the start of the SMO was estimated to be five hundred thousand. The ace in the hole is the group in question has not been trained by NATO.
    Those among The Smartest Man in the World suggest that my fellow human beings did not have at their command up to date information about:
    1. Location of local militias and special forces adjacent to Gaza.
    2. The identity of persons in the militias and special forces.
    3. The names and physical characteristics of those who have taken and occupied territory by force.
    4. A widely advertised hedonistic festival adjacent to their border.
    5. Known adversaries that would be present at such a festival.
    6. The movements of the known states military forces.
    7. The stated doctrine of the known state to prevent the capture of a member of their force.
    8. The stated doctrine of the known state to take and occupy by force a LARGE area in the region.
    9. Stated doctrine of racial superiority.
    10. The raison d’état openly espoused by the known state.
    Those among The Smartest Man in the World seem to have never heard the term “para military group”, ie “settlers” and “civilians”.

    Not to mince words, the moral outrage directed at my fellow human beings who have been offered the option to be slowly murdered or be murdered today is repugnant at best. This group of morally superior human beings who wholly accepted, and to a degree encouraged the murder of five hundred thousand Iraqi children to achieve “limited policy objectives” as stated by a Secretary of State is nothing less than demonic. As a word of encouragement to those already on their way, “GO TO HELL” and please pause just long enough to kiss my ass.

    Too Long for Sure-1
    Small bore rimfire observation and analysis seems to be the table d’hôte at the moment.
    The keyboard warriors and armchair generals should all be acquainted with the term “reconnaissance in force”. The quote from Mr. Churchill today will do as an example of small bore rimfire capacity. “A greater race” motif will do quite nicely. There is a place where armed militias make regular raids across a border supported by special forces and a known state military. Special forces of the state military make regular cross border projections of power. These state actors trumpet far and wide their superiority in all things regarding surveillance and security. These state actors enter and patrol a small area with a population of perhaps 2.2 million souls. In one of today’s news items it is revealed that private cell phones are in the possesion of members of these probing projections of power. As a reward for reading this news piece it is suggested that a social media platform is used to communicate planned movements and locations of those engaged in the border crossings. There is a known border, there is a known conflict and a known underlying objective.
    The “settlers”, the “unarmed civilians” are part of the modern world. The modern world is united by the handheld communication device. A cross border raid and taking of property must surely be supported by some type of communication system. How is an armed small militia going to call for support from locally placed special forces? A safe bet is some type of handheld communication device. Another safe bet is the gps driven location system of said device is enabled.
    One of the greatest powers of a class of handheld devices is the resolution of the onboard cameras and the ability to record video. The advances in face recognition software are often reported in the news space. The handheld device in my possesion has a multicamera system which of course is functional without a network connection. The point being, photgraphs and video can be created, downloaded to a laptop computer and placed into a file system. A simple USB memory device can carry files to a more powerful computer with the capacity for facial recognition software. Would this be a good time to note that all of this technology is at human scale? A populace with only consumer grade electronics has the ability to create an identification database of enormous depth. A population with a median age of less than twenty years with a unifying purpose has these tools in their hands.
    The known state and it’s military administration believe that a unified and aggrieved group, perhaps five hundred thousand human beings between eighteen and twenty five years of age, are incabable of using consumer grade electronics. How does one communicate the distaste for the concept of “A greater race”?

    EoinW and Oxy i am a citizen of the United States and the true elephant in the room is the degree to which we, citizens of the US, have been and are being propagandized. The cartoon series The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends was broadcast from 1959 thru 1964. The entire time frame each saturday morning was propaganda, the entire time frame, including the commercial advertisements. A short list of saturday morning children’s television from my youth: Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Skyking, Rocky and Bullwinkle and the Our Gang Comedies. There was also two shows i remember that were in the later child viewing time frame, Victory at Sea and Victory in the Air. The television show Lassie and Ponderosa, the Cartwright family, were billed as family time entertainment. Not to be forgotten is Superman “Clark Kent, mild-mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper, fights a never ending battle for truth, justice and the American way.” Hour upon hour week by week, month by month, year by year the lesson of might makes right – only we hold the truth is the curriculum. Can you name a single voice that points to Thoreau or Melville as voices of sanity? Has your child read Kipling and had a romance with Captains Courageous?

    There are some who comment here who cannot say often enough how stupid my fellow citizens are. There could be nothing further from the truth. The citizens of the United States are the most educated national population even today. We have been in a learing environment our entire lives and learned well the lessons provided. The most pernicious theme in our current education process puts forth the idea that propaganda originated in the twentieth century. The second most destructive concept that has been taught is propagated by those who organize the propaganda, the idea that there has been a FREE, FAIR and OPEN PRESS. One need only look to the contests between Mr. Jefferson and Mr. Adams to be diasavowed of the idea of a Free and Fair Press.
    We the People have experienced an almost limitless stream of information that glorifies what is now vastly more than a millenia of pillage, plunder, rape and murder done by blood thirsty savages. My first knowledge of political correctness, and still a burr under my saddle, was Dizzy Dean being removed from the broadcast commentary of baseball for his use of idiom.

    There seems to be great solace taken from the following interrogative:

    “Who could have known?”

    perhaps those who know the hatred created by one who is failing to go along and get along.

    the most powerful nation “in the history of the world”, as Mr. Biden noted, is hopefully the last iteration of the Western European Age of Terror. Such hope is truly frail, now even the woke are calling for Mr. Trump’s return that fresh coal may be thrown into the furnace of colonial empire.

    “That’s not a chip on my shoulder, that’s your foot on my neck.” Malcolm X

    the social circle i navigate is small, i do not know one person who can form the thought that western dominance is temporal and not the Divine Right of Kings. A current reality; even articulating such a thought makes one a candidate for re-education. Were you ever threatend, “this is going on your permanent record”? I hope so. Amazed but not amused by a civilization that glorifies and rewards psychopathy and sociopathy, Cognizant of the possibility and hopeful that the poor will always be with us

    The arrow of time points to the past, everything else is prediction. Perhaps the most ancient predictive truism: A beggar mounted will ride his horse to death.
    Truth lives in the fullness of hope.

    Do you ever consider our lives may have become a poor parody of Sancho Panza?

    There is a video of a conversation between Hoyle and Feinman that could be accessed from Youtube. The setting was contrived and the role of narrative was quite visible by today’s standards, yet there is value in the conversation. There is gnawing evidence that some reject the Uncertainty Principle the Observation Problem the double slit experiment – Particle/Wave duality – and indeed entropy. At times it seems as if everything from Heisenberg through Hawking and Penrose have gone out the window with the baby and the bathwater. Nature of course abhors a vacuum and the empty space has been filled with the absolute certainty of Brooksian whataboutism. I do miss Feinman’s impish grin and wrinkle of the nose.

    There seems to be quite a lot of certainty in the peanut gallery of late

    a short note to those advocating for the existence of a hidden or unkown body in control of the West. The first point is the nature of the internet, open communication. The information age has not only revolutionized communication between private citizens it has also had the same effect on all communications, public and private.

    The Treaty of Dunkirk, 1947, and the first stirrings of the origins of the European Union in 1948 are the base of the timelines of NATO and The European Union as presently constituted. The colonial powers of western Europe all managed their colonies with differing methods, some more brutal others less brutal. The fact remains the western European colonization process was brutal and inhumane. NATO and the European Union were created to formalize and integrate the relations between the colonial powers. The press release for the creators of the Union was to “make war unthinkable and materially impossible”. The actual purpose was to make war unthinkable and materially impossible against the colonial powers. The evolution of NATO and the integration of the United States into the European colonial powers is not hidden from anyone. That the true purpose of these bodies was the continuation of the colonial purpose is not hidden.

    The seventy three years between The Treaty of Dunkirk and the advent of the Pandemic of 2020 is an open book for all to see and the history is written. I know that the seeds of the Viet Nam conflict were sown before the Armistice of the Korean Conflict came into being. I know the citizens of my home, the United States of America, have openly supported the colonialist aspirations of our nation over the course of my life. My nation has engaged with the European colonial powers to enslave the balance of humanity.

    The phantasy that the purpose of NATO and the European Union is noble is just that, a phantasy. The citizens of the western nations to a large degree coalesced around the notion “might makes right”. Time after time, year after year, election after election citizens of the west voted into place those who expounded this position most clearly. In essence the most callous adherants to this philosophy were placed into positions of authority. The rapine of the lesser nations was celebrated openly.

    Year after year organizations of control were created to further the ambitions of each nation singulary and in concert with the formal international bodies. When the information age blossomed all of these existing organizations had the advantages of instant communication that private citizens acquired.

    There seems to be a feeling that, “My view has changed and there is suddenly a new phenomena emerging”. Let it be suggested, guess again. Buyers remorse is part of the human experience.

    “But nothing you do counts. Nothing you do matters. If you make or do anything we take it, ‘coz “FROM each according to their ability, TO each according to their need.” As long as that’s true, nothing you do matters and life has no meaning.”

    There ya go Mr. Projection.
    indeed an effort is made to pack innuendo into each short phrase, however your ability to read between the lines is astonishing. D’s reversal of the intent of the From To phrase is cynical even for the Dr. I hope you understand that the capitalist renunciation of the original was because the flow of resources was the antithesis of that used in today’s comment.

    May i offer you a breath mint?

    went back and read through yesterday and TAE summary from last night.

    Hope everyone here will forgive my bringing forth an ill wind

    phoenix the reason i am a carpenter and not working playing popular music is i could not properly support my children in the night club scene and those were the gigs available. When i was fifteen and attempting to self teach myself piano my mother stood behind me for a moment as i struggled with one of the Inventions and commented “your taste is all in your mouth”. On the path it takes a long time from the moment you are introduced to Piston and music as math for the benefit to appear in your playing, that is my experience. I am a mechanic not a musician, as a mechanic value is in the music not in one’s ability. “I’ll See You in My Dreams” is one of those 20th century folk music pieces that remains. The Chet Atkins, Mark Knopfler recordings are quite nice. Yes most popular music is produced and consumed. Rascal Flatts is one example of a studio/label producing music and then marketing a band as the creators. The Monkees were perhaps the earliest open example of such activity. One of my friends worked as a stable drummer for a man that owned a small label. My friend was with the same players under differing names over the course of each month based on regional sales of records. None of those players were on any of the promoted recordings.
    i didn’t quite graduate from the John Prine Academy of Travis Picking
