DRAPE IT IN RED, WHITE, AND BLUE!

Well it is crystal clear that Orange Tweet has sold out to the neocon war machine. And because of that we sure can’t work with the Russians!

Nope! It’s the old fucking Clinton-Bush-Obomber-Zionist-Wahhabi Conspiracy all over again.

This could all be settled if we BOMB ISRAEL FIRST and then SAUDI ARABIA! But can’t do that because that would clear things up and where would we sell our fucking bombs?

No, business is just too good.

Oh, by the way Mr. and Mrs. Merica, send your children to their death to protect OUR NATIONAL INTEREST. Fucking morons ……. drape it in red white and blue!

KOREAN BARBECUE?

 

What a wonderful world. No really! Tubularsock wakes up every morning and with strong coffee in his cup walks out onto his underground deck adjacent to Tubularsock’s top floor corner office in his underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland CA. and settles down to the insane news cycle once again. (see Bunker Tour)

What a grand view!

Have you noticed that recently the cops aren’t executing vast numbers of Black citizens on the streets of our grand nation? Tubularsock figures that the fucking cops have seen the light and now with Small Handed Orange Boy as President we all have “overcome” and given “peace a chance”.

And damn, our Muslim citizens are having a reprieve and EVEN THE JEWS are having a respite from having their cemeteries desecrated. Like dead Jews really give a shit!
But none the less it is all clear!

And “for fucking sake” even ISIS, you know, our boys are doing just fine. The U.S. is pumping them with armaments and chemical weapons “hidden” through Saudi and Turkish connections. All’s good!

Oh sure Assad is bad and we need to send 59 missiles at him with only half hitting their target. You only come to realize we missed when you heard from Orange Boy’s mouth that ALL OF OUR MISSILES HIT THE TARGET! A dead give away!

EXCEPT FOR THE ONES THAT KEPT THE AIRBASE FROM OPERATING THE NEXT DAY!

But forget all that!

What is important is not even the RUSSIANS! We are almost past that.

Now what you are being told is to be fearful of is NORTH KOREA!

Are you scared yet?

The country that HAS NO LIGHTS as viewed from satellite vision.

The country that sends off rockets that fail and fall into the sea.

The country that is run by a REAL “yellow” skinned Asian boy child similar to the United States “orange” skinned boy child!

THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE TOLD TO FEAR!

North Korea ……………………. give Tubularsock a break. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!

All Tubularsock can figure is that it must be a very fucking slow news day!

But here’s a hint ………….

If you deliberately poke a hornet’s nest ……………

What is the OBVIOUS response?

THE AMERICAN ALBATROSS ABOUT OUR NECKS

LET’S TRY HISTORY!

Well now wouldn’t you know. While Tubularsock was sitting in his top floor corner office in his underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA (see Bunker Tour) Tubularsock heard a rap on the door and went to see who the visitor happened to be.

And as luck would have it it was the beginning of “drinking hour” at the Bunker, 8:30 am.

A very long time female friend came for a visit with a question on her mind.

And the question was a simple one, “Did WE really WIN the Revolutionary War?”

Now Tubularsock does have an opinion about this subject and he expressed it.

At the very heart of the question is a question, “Who is the WE that you speak?”

Her response was, “WE the American People, US.!”

Tubularsock took the bottle of Wild Turkey Single Barrel out and poured us each a double shot neat and set the bottle on the desk for ready access knowing that this was going to take some time.

Lucky for you, Tubularsock is going to condense this information as he cracks the nut shell open. Because the truth is way bigger than the nutty fairy tale that so many Americans basically believe as true. BUT IT’S NOT!

NOT EVEN CLOSE!

“YOU TOO CAN BECOME PRESIDENT” Horse shit, never was true …. ever!

Here we go.

The best way to proceed is by asking who really gained from the Revolutionary War? Or any war for that matter.

Well the bankers, the land owners, the land speculators (Washington and Franklin fall into this category), the owners of the manufacturing base, the owners of the transportation system mostly shipping at that time.

Who didn’t gain! Indians, slaves, women, workers, indentured servants and anyone who did not own land.

So ……. just who are “The American People?”

We have been taught that America is a “classless” society. Horse shit, never was true …. ever!

We do have class mobility, unlike many other countries, but the class system is entrenched in the culture but because of some mobility it is believed we are classless. Best example that you may recognize is that between “old-money” and “new-money” and all that goes with that elitist thought pattern. (Just for a reference point, Tubularsock has for years held up the no money class. In fact, not even a down payment!)

“YOUR VOTE COUNTS!” Horse shit, never was true …. ever!

From the beginning, unless you were a property owner you could not vote. If you did not have property you were considered not to be a stakeholder in the community and hence had no right to vote.

Women were bared from voting even when they gained property after the death of a husband. But an interesting side note, they did have the right to own slaves that they “inherited”. An odd “classless” state of affairs, indeed!

And remember the reason for the electoral college was a “check” on the possible “corruption” or “take over” by the populous.

But more importantly even with citizens having the right to vote the vote was and is meaningless.
And the reason for that is that the vote is controlled from the top down.

The elite that control the Democrats and the Republican Parties choose the choices and are limited by those established party elites.

The debates are controlled by a Democrat-Republican corporation who make the rules for expressing ideas by determining who can debate!

And so the THIRD CHOICE is not to vote which in itself is a vote against not having a choice other than the CONTROLLED CHOICE. In 2016 40% voters voted not to vote!

And on top of that the NEWS/MEDIA ACCESS is controlled so anyone outside the elite choices have NO VOICE.

So in truth …….. YOUR VOTE DOES COUNT only IF YOU ACCEPT WHAT IS PICKED FOR YOU! (no, this is not the definition of democracy) And you may want to consider how this arranged voting system differs from any other dictatorial system of voting.

You see, YOU JUST HAVE BEEN MADE TO BELIEVE YOU HAVE A CHOICE.

REALLY ……….. TAKE A LOOK AT IT!

“YOUR PATRIOTIC DUTY OF NATIONAL DEFENSE”, Horse shit but there is a “rule” change. And that change is simple ……… you as a citizen are responsible to defend the homeland with the lives of your children EVEN IF YOU DON’T OWN LAND!

And the best insight into who “won” the American Revolutionary War against England comes from Howard Zinn:

 

“And so when you look at the American Revolution, you have to look at it in terms of class.

Do you know that there were mutinies in the American Revolutionary Army by the privates against the officers? The officers were getting fine clothes and good food and high pay and the privates had no shoes and bad clothes and they weren’t getting paid. They mutinied. Thousands of them. So many in the Pennsylvania line that George Washington got worried, so he made compromises with them. But later when there was a smaller mutiny in the New Jersey line, not with thousands but with hundreds, Washington said execute the leaders, and they were executed by fellow mutineers on the order of their officers.”

Over two thirds of the “citizens” of the American Colonies DIDN’T WANT TO GO TO WAR WITH ENGLAND. And yet, we did. Anything familiar feeling in that?

There is so much of this shit that is passed over in the teaching of American history not only in the schools but throughout the entire system. The general American History Textbook is TOTAL FANTASY and American Historians still, to this day, pump out the same “patriotic narrative” ad nauseam !
AND THAT …………….. IS THE REAL AMERICAN DREAM!
So if you want to wake up and much more importantly if you want your children to wake up, start with:

In truth, there is none better!

So, Wild Turkey gone my friend left with her answer and then Tubularsock had forgotten to tell her one last bit of American History. Benjamin Franklin had wanted to have the national bird not to be the eagle but the WILD TURKEY. Seems fitting to Tubularsock.

PRESSTITUTES PERSONIFIED!

Once again, American Journalism is not only lacking but just doesn’t exist …. if it ever did really, to tell the truth.

We can all recall the famous dictum, “You furnish the pictures and I’ll furnish the war” spouted by William Randolph Hearst.

You see, Hearst’s reporter, the famed illustrator Frederic Remington wanted to come home from Cuba in 1897 because nothing was happening …. so he sent a cable to Hearst stating, “Everything quiet.  There is no trouble here.  There will be no war.  Wish to return.”

And Hearst’s response was the above pictures-war statement.

And if you look at this briefly it really provided a template for “GOING TO WAR” ever since. Seriously! Every war since, the precursor, always and still is false, sensational news that prepares the public for war! Oh, a well placed, dead mutilated kid, is a must!

Perfect, really!

You see, Hearst grasped onto the Cuban revolt against Spain in 1895 and saw it as a way to increase his New York Journal readership and pull readers from his rival the New York World.

Hearst’s tactic was to run increasingly sensational stories. TRUE OR NOT! And he went with stories of violence, sex, catastrophe, and mayhem which later became characterized by the term “yellow journalism”.

And quickly to put this historical adventurism of Hearst in context to our current Syrian Chimera, Hearst was able to actually corral the public into believing that the sinking of the USS Maine (which, by the way, blew up from unknown causes, maybe a coal fire) was blamed on Spanish treachery by the New York Journal. Within three months, the United States was at war with Spain in what became known as the Spanish-American War.

And “Remember the Maine, to Hell with Spain!” became the American public’s sentiment promoted by Hearst’s paper vigorously publishing stories that helped create and foster those feelings.

See the parallel? DAH!

The FACT that “yellow journalism” is the major type of journalism left today goes a long way in explaining why the general public is just so plain trusting and stupid.

True, it may not be the only reason for this stupidity but it definitely promotes it!

WHAT IF THERE IS SOMETHING THAT YOUR BEING IS ATTEMPTING TO EXPRESS! …. Tubularsock

The Despairing Child is a 20″ x 24″ oil on canvas painted  sometime in the 1980’s. This painting is of a troubled child. Why did I chose this subject? We are in the middle of Holy Week and unfortunately,  suffering is part of life. This is to call to mind the suffering of others, especially the children.
