Tubularsock doesn’t get it.

Recently the “Afghanistan Papers” have been released and you know what ………


And what did we learn from the Pentagon Papers and the Viet Nam War?


Save Tubularsock the explanation how shocked we all are!


You have got to be kidding!

EVERY VETERAN who joined up and fought in these wars who have not joined Veterans For Peace are a shame on this country.

Every parent of a slain solider who still believes that their son or daughter died to protect AMERICA is delusional. Fucking WAKE UP!

Your job, NOW, is to go out and scream from the tallest building that this country should not kill anymore of our children in endless wars.

YOU, mom and dad, are responsible for helping to kill your own son or daughter unless you attempted to stop them from joining.

No more of that shit at the airports saying, “thank you for your service”!

The phrase you should be saying is “You are a dumb fuck for believing in this military bullshit ……. you dumb fuck”.

“They met on the battlefield banner in hand.
They looked out across the vacant land.
And they counted the missing, one upon one,
None upon none.
The war it was over before it begun.

Two little kings playing a game.
They gave a war and nobody came.
And nobody came.
And nobody came.
And nobody came.
And nobody came.”
[repeat and fade]

    Ben Franklin once said there “never was a good war..or a bad peace..” And he knew a lot of shit. He seemed to be on target with this one.

    Yes, of course no more war… but the problem with that is, it’s common sense so that automatically excludes the vast majority of Earthians. The second problem is, the “cult” leaders insist that war is necessary to stop (whatever and whomever from doing whatever, wherever) because it’s of course grossly profitable in money, power, notoriety… and their mercenary hirese throw themselves into the meat grinder for peanuts, or even for nothing, and their parents, after encouraging the kids to kill and be killed, gladly pay taxes to support wars – not for wages and pensions, but for nukes and smart bombs and drones and billion dollar useless flying coffins and “Pentagonal” corruption and open, blatant theft of billions of $$$ for champagne, tuxedos, medals and parties where underaged kids provide the sex in billionaires’ “cottages”.

      Sha’ Tara, Earthians do have their issues and your list, as you know, just scratches the surface.

      Tubularsock has never been fond of “champagne, tuxedos, medals and parties” or for that matter children but Tubularsock’s direction for his own children was, “I’d rather have sell crack on the street corner as an entrepreneur than go into the military”. Fortunately they did neither!

      As for worldly “common sense” it appears to be in short supply, hence the investment in war!

      Thanks for your insights and “keep your powder dry”.

    And here’s another insight, so oft repeated that it’s become trite. What if the politicians and corporate execs of the weapons corporations had to automatically be in the front lines of any wars? Would they be so anxious to get us into conflicts and prolong them? There’s nothing like a bullet headed for one’s head or an exploding artillery shell to make a peacenik out of somebody.

      So, when are the truly stupid numbnuts going to stop willingly and cheerfully going to fight their wars for them? If the bastards can get braindead, brainwashed dummkopfs to die for them for free why not take advantage of it? It’s just good business. “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves that we are underlings.” Those who want change keep attacking or blaming the elites but the problem is much, much, closer to home. I think you do point that out here, Tube. But how do you “educate” a magahatter?

      Now sojourner, you know Tubularsock has the ability to alienate ALL sides of an event.

      It’s called TRUTH. And it always gets in the way.

      As for the left-Democraps, they give a bad name to the term LEFT!

        Well sojourner, there may be a bright side to the fucked up left that are just a step over center.

        And that is blocking an asshole may lead to serious issues. Explosive issues and that is a lot of shit flying around.

        Tubularsock views the “far left” as too far right for Tubularsock’s taste and Revolutionary as almost left.

        Tubularsock is on a cosmic spectrum and he is farther out than even the new “space force” can handle!

    Of course I always relate thoughts like this to music. Two come to mind one by me and Rajiv Chopra
    and the other by Charlie Parr.

      Leslie, thank you!

      And THAT music says it all and once I stopped tapping my foot and sang along Tubularsock felt better.

      Well, the helicopter background on your tune was a bit depressing. Not to mention the lyrics.

      And Tubularsock does have an aversion to machine-gun fire.

      Other than that it is a snappy little number!

  6. I was feeling really great when I woke up this morning, Tube, but after reading your blog post I find I’m rather depressed and want to take up smoking.

      Now, now DrB. It is all in the type of tabacky you’ll be smoken’ that will make the difference.

      Depression sounds so depressing. It may better to:

      Smoke two joints in the morning
      Smoke two joints at night
      Smoke two joints in the afternoon
      It makes you feel all right.
      Smoke two joints in time of peace
      And two in time of war.
      Smoke two joints before you smoke two joints
      And then you smoke two more.

      And as Roy Rogers sang, Happy Trails To You!


  7. Tube,
    As per your last comment, I’d rather laugh than cry. Maybe if marijuana were universally legal no one would want to go to war, especially if they could grow their weed alongside their weeds in their back yards and smoke tax-free weeds. Then the government would have neither the will nor the money to fight.

      katharineotto, Tubularsock is balancing on the same leaf and agrees. But you do realize that this idea may be a gateway drug to peace AND THEN what will humankind do with themselves?

      “Imagine there’s no countries
      It isn’t hard to do
      Nothing to kill or die for
      And no religion, too
      Imagine all the people
      Living life in peace…”

      Oh sure, katharine …… you can say Tubularsock’s a dreamer ……… and so are you!

      • Tube,
        Think of all the people who would lose their jobs, then they couldn’t contribute to the economy and support the government. They would have nothing better to do than smoke their weeds growing alongside their tomatoes.

        Better dreams than nightmares.

        Well there is something to be said for REALLY getting to know your tomatoes. We are usually just too busy in our daily work lives to become involved with our tomatoes as we should!

        Pouring ketchup all over your body could be a solution but NEVER put it on be-Heinz!

        Have a high holiday kathariene.

    Since humans emerged from the primordial slime…
    They have engaged in a variety of degradations and crime..
    But none so egregious as the act of war…
    A feature of their existence they are noted for..
    First they fought with sticks and rocks..
    Then advanced to hammer locks…
    And then to machines that killed from afar…
    And finally a bomb that could end all strife…
    Because it could end all human life…
    So which will end all life, philosophers debate?..
    Will it be war or pollution that will seal our fate?…
    What type of extinction will we face?…
    No matter what may extinguish our kind…
    It will be the product of the human mind….
    Evolution was supposed to take us…
    To a higher plain..
    To a Utopian world where there was no war or pain…
    The human race would lead the way…
    But instead devolution has carried the day..
    And in a world filled with distrust, hate and lies…
    The human race slowly dies…

      Batt, you are outdoing yourself today.

      I love your work but Tubularsock has just a little doubt that humans have, to date, actually “emerged from the primordial slime” yet!

      Just take another close look at the entire Trump family …….. see what Tubularsock means?

      But beside that ……… great poem!

    Sha’Tara, simple! Join Tubularsock hand in hand and sing a rousing “sedition” of “Take Me Out To The Ball Game”!
