As Tubularsock was sitting in Tubularsock’s top floor corner office in Tubularsock’s Underground Bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA Tubularsock received another electronic missive from Dianysia (a real person and follower) who communicates with Tubularsock from time to time when the cosmic order gets out of whack.

Needless to say we communicate often!

Tubularsock has decoded the following message:


Dianysia here:

With a favor to ask:

I was just out on a glorious bike-ride, sun, perfect clouds in a perfect blue sky, trees refulgent in their mid-summer green glory, flowers of every color and design—and my own mood even and harmonious.

In the words of Nelson Mandela: I was “ here, experiencing the glory of the creation of God.”.

Why, then I asked myself, do I keep seeing this glory through the “lens” of a year and a half of COVID?

Isn’t COVID largely on the wane? Why can’t I DROP the LENS? Let it go . . . ? Forget it . . . ?

And as I initially criticized myself for not being able to DROP THE LENS OF COVID, what came to me suddenly was:


Covid was and is a MESSENGER to humanity, I believe.

Whether it’s the aspects of humanity’s warring, destructive, and conflictive consciousness out -pictured for us to see, or a messenger arriving by some other means, we are not meant to “go back to the way things were” because THE WAY THINGS WERE HAS NOT CHANGED!

Vaccine or no-vaccine, cure or no-cure: The disastrous and destructive policies that affect the whole planet have not changed.

In Chinese medicine and in holistic medicine in general, when illness appears, the WHOLE ORGANISM, THE WHOLE LIFE of the individual is looked at. The principle is that illness is an indicator that the life—physical, emotional, relational, functional —of the person is out of balance in one or more ways. The WHOLE must be looked at, addressed, and brought back into balance.

I see Covid as a messenger of this for Humanity and for the world..

A vaccine—or other “remedies” for relieving or eliminating the symptoms of Covid— are addressing only the SYMPTOMS, not looking for underlying causes of the dis-ease.

When only symptoms are addressed, and not underlying causes, another “messenger” will eventually appear—usually just in another form.

And the favor I ask of you, Tube, is that you remind us—your readership—of some of the glaring, but generally kept out of mainstream media’s focus—gross imbalances negligences, injustices, and violences that are a continuous “given”, the “background noise” of the planet.

The population may be able to brunch again but what about OUR SACRED PLANET?

What about Humanity?

I would turn my part over to you and ask that you elucidate what this messenger has been asking us to wake up—AGAIN—to, to stay awake to, to demand healing for. . .


Oh, thanks a lot Dianysia.

You get all the insightful and overarching themes and you leave

Tubularsock with sweeping up the wretched scumbag causes plaguing
this “planet of the remedials”!

A Tubularsock specialty!

Well the very first “issue” WE as a nation happen to have is that stacks of money and stacks of stuff will make us happy.

And if we could only get that two car garage and green lawn with that fucking WHITE picket fence then our personal world will be HAPPY!

SO we’ll work a dead end job that we hate and robotly walk lines of cubicles and partition our lives accordingly in order to make payments on our programed dream we were tricked into and NOT turning out the way
THEY told us it would.

WE HAVE BEEN TRICKED! Over and over again.

Your parents tricked you, you trick your children and they will trick theirs and the spiral continues to go down.

The government that you were told represented YOU ……. doesn’t!

You know that but you still act like it does! IT DOESN’T!


The United States is THE NUMBER ONE TERRORIST GROUP in the world but many Americans still believe that our country is good. IT’S NOT!

The American National Anthem should start with …..


It may be time to STOP!

If you haven’t noticed THE PEOPLE outnumber the power structure.

And the power structure works to put the whites against the blacks and the browns against the yellows and the men against the women and the trans against the straights and the religious against the atheist. ALWAYS AGAINST EACH OTHER!

BUT if regular people woke up and would see that they are being played so as to remain weak AS EVERYTHING IS BEING TAKEN FROM THEM things could quickly change.


It really is up to each and everyone of us.

As Albert Einstein stated, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

Simple but VERY difficult because ………… I WANT TO KEEP MINE!

Now it would be easy to spend all this digital ink on how fucked up Biden, or Trump, or Obama or Bush ARE but why bother. THEY ARE ALL THE SAME PRINTOUT!


We can dwell on the total sell out “press” like Rachel Maddow or Amy Goodman or Nicolle Wallace, showing that women are as vacuous as men when it comes to the propaganda news shows.

Or the totally brain dead show, “The View” with Whoopi Goldberg which is a slap in the face to any thinking person! What fucking garbage!

It has got to be the money because ALL of these women were “out-there” when they started. They were a breath of fresh air, but time and fame and money and the realization that to keep it you can NO LONGER make waves. And have caused them to sell out to the corporate agenda.

And to put the nail in the coffin.

Whenever Tubularsock puts out that putting women into office wouldn’t change things much, the push back is heavy until Tubularsock points out as examples Diane Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton.

With those three all Tubularsock can vision is a bubbling caldron and “DOUBLE DOUBLE toil and trouble”!

So the bottom line question is —– WHERE ARE WE GOING?

We live in an extremely unhappy country. How does Tubularsock know?

The HUGE amount of PRESCRIPTION DRUGS taken by the American public EVERYDAY.

The MASSIVE amount of street drugs taken by the American public EVERYDAY.

The OUTRAGEOUS number of daily killings taken place in every city and town throughout the country.

The DAILY TOLL of domestic violence taking place in the U.S.

The continued number of sex crimes that take place daily in the country.

The outlandish number of Suicides that occur everyday. EVEN AMONG THE YOUNG!

The formidable number of WAR CRIMES and CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY the U.S. commits on a daily bases throughout the world.

The OVERWHELMING number of homeless people on the streets in a country that prides itself as the richest nation in the history of the world.

And not finally but finely enough, it’s just that Tubularsock needs a neat double shot of Wild Turkey, the drunken-side of an alcoholic nation!

None of these are signs of a “happy country” because a “happy country” would not have these issues.


Appears to Tubularsock ………….. the wrong fucking way.

And still Tubularsock can continue with the mundane,

Biden is bombing Syria,—a country our troops are in illegally— while Rachel Maddow is STILL obsessing over “Russiagate”.

Portland, Oregon hit 112 degrees and Vancouver Canada hit 116 degrees— while government officials argue over “to carbon-tax or not to carbon-tax” . . .

Are you kidding?

Bezos’ Amazon cancer continues to swallow up the planet as we dumbly
continue to buy from it, crushing out small, independent businesses.

(Tubularsock is starting his 2nd double shot of Wild Turkey)

At the very least, let us start to take responsibility for what is not being attended to.

If we don’t, who will?

So, Dianysia as you can see it’s best not to get Tubularsock started!

Thanks for your komunikacija as Tubularsock says in Croation.

Dok se opet ne sretnemo, Tube.

    Right on, Dan. I always said that I didn’t think the world was going to make any substantive change once COVID is “conquered” (such violence is built into our language). Some people have begun to look into the underlying ills, but most will take the vaccine and think, “OK, that’s done, let’s get back to ‘normal’.”

      JB, really glad to hear from you again. And yes, Tubularsock agrees with your insight even though Tubularsock wishes it were different.

      But Tubularsock does have to admit that is this world illusion abnormal is the normal.

      That is the cost for living on a backward-upside-down illusionary ball spinning its way to oblivion.

      Hell, enjoy the ride!

      Thanks for your comment. Always interested in your cryptic messaging. “Lumpy Gravy” does cover a lot of territory when dealing with a Blue Plate Special!

      Tubularsock will be happy to donate the WD-40 to make sure that window opens smoothly. Least Tubularsock can do!


  4. mea culpa on being overly obscure. both were musical references geared toward Zappatistas….followers of Frank Zappa. At that level, there’s also “We’re in it for the Green Stuff and the Numbers.” miss Zappa’s wit and music.

      RCS, that explains it!

      Frank Zappa is missed by Tubularsock as well.

      “The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” …… Zappa


  5. nothing like explosive decompression to cull the ranks of autocrats.

    All the books and articles and blogs I read about the fall of empires really predict that this American Empire on its last wobbly leg.
    We needed vision and truth but got shit and lies instead.
    Happiness was never guaranteed, right?

    • tubularsock says:

      LT, great observations and yet the positive is that “vision and truth” are still out there to be achieved and all is never lost.

      One of the most positive statements on this subject was a bit that the impressionist David Frye did back in 1971 on his album Richard Nixon Superstar.

      With Frye doing both voices, Nixon asks Jerry Rubin (Yippies Founder), “What will you do when everything is destroyed?”

      Rubin responds, “I don’t know, man, maybe just sit there and groove on the rubble.”

      Tubularsock finds that that response does bring about “Happiness” for the state we are in today.

      LT, happiness may not be guaranteed so one should grab it wherever it shows up!

      Keep the peace and burn it down.

    Tube: Before the evolution (???) of humans there:
    –were no wars..
    –was no drug abuse..
    –was no pollution…(except an occasional volcano blowout or two)
    –was no politics…
    –were no infrastructure problems
    –were no left wing or right wing fringe groups…
    –was no greed or bottom line profit…
    –was no divorce..
    –were no teenagers..
    –was no police brutality..
    –was no FOX news…..
    –was no English food or Montovani music..
    –were no weapons of mass destruction..
    –were no fast food places..

    In short, the world was a Utopian paradise, a veritable Garden of Eden without Adam and Eve and the serpent. It can be that way again after about 2100 AD or so when the whole thing caves in, humans and their institutions alike. One pundit observed that when humans have become extinct. and vines and rot have destroyed most human structures and work, there will be only one thing remaining to remind anyone of human existence. The four presidential faces carved on the granite of Mount Rushmore, South Dakota (except there won’t be any South Dakota, something which should have happened long ago). Future alien visitors will wonder who these four were, and why they didn’t try more to exploit the lush ecosystem available to them.

      Batt, you may be correct. MAN as destroyer is doing an excellent job bringing it down but Tubularsock see Rushmore a bit differently.

      As the aliens look upon Mt. Rushmore they will say, “Damn, Homo sapiens were much taller than we thought”.

      So much for “alien science”!

      Thanks for you comment. It’s good for you to get away from CNN occasionally.



  8. Sluggo says:

    COVID will end up being the demise of humans. It will soon begin mutating so fast that we will be unable to develop new vaccines fast enough to cope with the mutations. I am frankly surprised that we lasted this long. How the Earth could allow the evolution of a life form that is responsible for upsetting the ecosystem as much as we have is hard to imagine. But then again, as cunning and defiant as we can be. I guess it was also difficult for the “machine” to come up with a way to get rid of us. At least after we as a species are gone, the Earth (as it always has) will be able to heal just fine over time.
    One can only imagine what species will over-evolve next to trash the planet.

      Sluugo, Great to have you drop by!

      Now, now …….. lets not get too positive, ok?

      Yet, Tubularsock is afraid you are more correct than not.

      Humans are a questionable commodity and a poor investment if one is looking for intelligence. But you get what you pay for.

      What Tubularsock loves seeing is how the rich are now all looking to fly off into space like the knowledge they’d take with them would not pollute the rest of the solar system.
      Go figure!

      Thanks for your insights and hope all is going well for you. Cheers.


  9. As best I can understand, Tube, everything you describe is evidence that the US is a failed state approaching total economic collapse similar to what Russia experienced in the 1990s. The signposts are very difficult to recognize for people living inside the collapse. I think they may be more evident to people looking at the US from the outside. I agree with Dmitry Orlov (I post one of his interviews just now) that there’s nothing we can do to halt the collapse. I also agree with his advice – that people living inside the collapse work with neighbors and friends to help each other get through it.

      DrB, Collapse looks like the way we are going. When corruption is allowed and open with little consequence and the political establishment, the banking elite, and the scientific community ALL lacking integrity, what is there to save?

      Tubularsock agrees that people helping people is what will happen because what we have seen in our past is that the power structure ONLY help their own.

      However, this time they may not be able to pull the levers to revive the whole.
      Bye, bye Baby!

      Thanks for your contribution. Appreciated.
