Tube hear now Heading

This is the time of year that Tubularsock hides in his top floor corner office in the underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA.

Not from fear but from dread ……..

Tubularsock always puts on his stealth attire when he has to leave the bunker and you wouldn’t recognize Tubularsock on the street because the S.F. Bay Area that Oakland is a part has so many diverse hair styles Tubularsock isn’t all that noticeable. No, really.

But just in case Tubularsock always wears a ski hat with blinking green lights with its top cut open and people don’t even look up as Tubularsock passes on his two-wheeled bike. It’s rather a live-and-let-live community in general.

And hell with the homeless black dude that rides his bike pulling two bike trailers with a boom-box and two huge 12” woofer speakers blaring and adding that to all his belongings with everything painted GOLD to match his gold painted top hat, suit coat, pants and high top tennis shoes ……..

Well shit, Tubularsock even begins to look normal!

Tubularsock seldom goes into retail stores. Just have no interest and most of the stuff is priced so high that Tubularsock figures the “liberal-press” has buried the true story that the Chinese slave laborers in the sweat-factories have been given a huge wage increase! Fucking workers!

At least here in America when we asked the Black Africans to leave their homes and come to America we put them to work 24/7. They were good workers too. In fact, so good that the powers to be set up a system that still exist today. And keeps those Black Workers behind bars working in order to keep them from having to associate with all those welfare cheats!

Seriously! If you recall, those Native Americans would run off when our early Christian farmers used to attempt to “train” those savages to work. And none of them spoke American! Go figure.

But that was then and we are here now and things have improved.

And today in America we even love Mexicans! No seriously!

Right after Donald Trump proclaimed to build a wall to keep those raping Mexicans out he in his next breath proclaimed that he had a great relationship with Mexican waiters. They were his homey-amigos.

And just like Americans, no one even noticed any incongruity. That’s because we are ALL, EXCEPTIONAL!

Now, just watching truck after truck after truck of dead pine trees being brought into this city to be decorated and lighted up for a week or two and then tossed to the curbside to be taken away by trucks and trucks and trucks just brings merriment to Tubularsock’s soul.

And just like Americans, no one even notices any incongruity. That’s because we are ALL, EXCEPTIONAL!

But one can not miss the parade of stressed out smiling people marching in and out like zombies to every sales event in order to PROVIDE HAPPINESS which isn’t paid off until  May, 2016 if you’re lucky. Which then keeps them all sitting in cubicles day in and day out for years and they call it their life’s work.

And just like Americans, no one even notices any incongruity. That’s because we are ALL, EXCEPTIONAL!

But what if ………………………..

This year ………………………….

LIBERATION.

stop!

Wow, now how easy was that?

If you haven’t figured this out yet ………..

the force

And believe Tubularsock on this ……. you don’t have to do this.

You never did. It has alway been an illusion and you are the ONLY one who can wake up because it is YOUR dream.

And Tubularsock knows your conditioned response …… “but I, I just couldn’t”.

But you can …….. you create your own reality and you even already know this, so listen from within.

“I’M SORRY, YOUR TIME IS UP ….. THIS IS A RECORDING. YOUR PARKING TICKET MAY BE VALIDATED UPON YOUR EXIT…….. HAVE A NICE DAY” beep.  your move

  1. WOW! This one is right on time!! I gotta hand it to you, you did one helluva job on this one!

    We march lockstep inside the stores on Black Friday. In our zombiefried state, we log in on Cyber Monday and we buy, buy, buy. We dutifully and without a thought of our own, just mindlessly and hypnotically do as we are so ordered. And our concern for this planet is glaringly obvious by the hundreds of thousands of trees that will lie on the curb right after Capitalismas, awaiting the trash truck.

    I refuse to be a willing participant in this fake ass farce!

    Thank you Tubularsock! This one is a show-stopper!

        Leonard Cohen is a Zionist and proud of it?! He speaks about his grandfather being the first Zionist in Cannada and proudly talks about his grandfather being a member of the terrorist Stern Gang back in 1948 and afterwards, also, Leonard Cohen was a good friend of the Butcher of Beirut (Areil Sharon), in fact, he talks about going to Lebanon and being the driver and cook for the Butcher of Beirut, how they would go to Ariel’s farm after killing Palestinains in Lebanon and having fine wine over dinner, I’m not making this up, I can provide links, it’s all very shocking for those who love his music.
        He even played in ‘Israel’ after a large world wide plea for him to cancel his tour there:

        Thank you Genie for your comment. Tubularsock doesn’t need links to prove you are correct. Tubularsock will happily take your word for it.

        A very long time ago Tubularsock discovered that much of the music that Tubularsock loved was written and performed by people that he really didn’t like.

        But music and art speaks differently and Tubularsock loves Leonard Cohen’s body of musical work and find some of Hitler’s early painting well done. But Tubularsock doesn’t necessarily condone their personal beliefs or behavior.

        But thank you for passing on the information.

        And just because Rim Banna and Basel Zayed are Palestinian would not keep Tubularsock from liking their music.

        Yes, that picture appeared in The Guardian and elsewhere; I don’t think it’s incriminating of anything much at all – you need to understand the context, without which it’s meaningless. Cohen was due to play a concert at The Ramallah Cultural Palace but the performance was called off by the Palestinians themselves. Have a read of the following article to get a clearer picture, and from which this extract was taken:

        “Cohen’s response to the call for a cultural boycott was to create a Fund for Reconciliation, Tolerance and Peace and to devote all of the proceeds from the Israeli concert ‘to organisations and individuals working in Israel and Palestine to advance the recognition and full expression of human rights in the region’.

        The singer singled out the Israeli-Palestinian Bereaved Parents Circle, who despite the loss of a close loved one work together for peace and reconciliation. Author David Grossman, who lost a son on the last day of the Lebanon war in 2006, thanked Cohen for his support and the singer answered from the stage that ‘the bereaved parents’ response to their suffering transcends the instinct for anger and revenge, and offers hope from the heart, even the hope for peace'”.

        Genie, you are trippen’ Tubularsock out. You know Tubularsock is from the West Coast of the U.S. not New York and Tubularsock was raised in a rural small farming town so Tubularsock didn’t even know what a “Jew” was until he moved to San Francisco.

        Over the years Tubularsock learned but Tubularsock had never even heard the word “Hasbara”
        and “Sayanim” until this conversation and had to look them up.

        And now Tubularsock is a “Ashkenazi Jew”?

        That is funny …… no really funny. Tubularsock may even leave the bunker and munch down on a bagel with cream cheese just to commune with my new tribe!

        You, Genie have got to be on a better quality of drugs than Tubularsock is smoken’ but if you would send some to Tubularsock we may reach an understanding.

        Well Genie, Tubularsock may look like a Ashkenazi Jew, talk like a Ashkenazi Jew, and walk like a Ashkenazi Jew but Tubularsock is not a Ashkenazi Jew or any other kind of Jew for that matter.

        Yet it is true that Tubularsock did give advice in the construction of the Arc, back in the day but Noah resisted installing a Yamaha 2016 outboard motor which would have made that damn little boat be able to maneuver better but Noah resisted any change in the original design. And Tubularsock’s suggestion that the animals should be boarded 3 by 3 seemed to be looked down upon. Noah wasn’t into kinky sex being a traditionalist.

        Noah was a traditionalist and Tubularsock was a free thinker so Noah being the son of Khaphet, son of Gomer the first son of Ashkenazi may have adopted Tubularsock early on. Hell, Tubularsock doesn’t read Yiddish so how would Tubularsock know?

        But if that is the case then Tubularsock could now migrate to Israel and receive $10,000.00 that is being offered to those “Jews” that migrate to Israel …… “such a deal”. That’s more than Tubularsock made last year, almost!

        But none of this answers the question on what do you base your position that Cohen is a Zionist,
        Hariod is a Hasbara/Sayanim and Tubularsock is a adopted Ashkenazi Jew?

        The space is open ………………
