A word to the wise from Tubularsock.

DON’T wake up in the morning and turn on the “news” before you have adjusted your mental-intake-valve.

This is a must if you want to maintain any bit of sanity in the insane world you find yourself.

Years ago Krishnamurti said, “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”

And of course that holds even more true today. And believe it or not we have hit the iceberg and it seem like the US-TITANIC is going down!

What we are experiencing today is the decline and collapse of a society that has lost its way.

We, as “Americans” have NO VISION, NO MORALITY, NO DIRECTION AND NO LEADERSHIP!

Golly gee, that doesn’t sound good now does it. Well, unless you are the kind of person that will bet on a dead horse and then bitch and moan at being a looser you’ll need to take extra care in viewing what is going down.

Now just where is the surprise in a country that will go off to another country and burn to death thousands of men, women, and children and then be SHOCKED and DISMAYED about your very own gunmen killing people on the streets of our country.

Somehow Tubularsock just isn’t shocked at all. In fact, when Tubularsock looks over the political landscape of this country and our obsessive addiction to guns it seems to be a natural extension of a military mindset.

You see if you are 18, you are a hero if you slaughter the enemy “over-there”. The power structure will even give you a medal!

And by golly the power structure will even give that medal to your parents or spouse if you happen to get yourself dead in your slaughter endeavor. THAT is just how important that MEDAL happens to be. Queue in the hand over the heart ……. so sincere.

Tubularsock see a false sense of priorities here.

Dick Gregory, once said that the U.S. doesn’t have to force democracy on other countries because if it is such a good thing they’ll steal it! WE ourselves have to practice it as an example for others. No we really are going to practice it right after you elect us again and again and again. Remember we only have one party. The party of money & control!

And that is why we aren’t a democracy. We just keep promoting the “IDEA” of Democracy as a propaganda tool for the citizens to believe while the American Oligarchs swim in the cash they create on the backs of the citizens!

DEMOCRACY WE AIN’T!

Now some have called Tubularsock over the years “un-American” …. NA’. Tubularsock is much more on the Fuck-America track. A country that will lock up a person for exposing the TRUTH of the corruption and evils of the military and rather then giving that person a medal for exposing TRUTH they give him 30 years to life! FUCK-AMERICA!

Or a country that will arrest climate activists as terrorists rather than giving them medals for exposing TRUTH! FUCK-AMERICA!

This list could go on as communities militarize their police forces into armies with asshole with guns and expect the citizen to “respect” the police. FUCK-AMERICA!

And Tubularsock’s largest FUCK-AMERICA is directed at the “Two-Party-System which is just ONE PARTY who have never-ever funded a war they didn’t like!

So, DON’T be un-American BE FUCK-AMERICAN!

And God will love you, amen.

But Tubularsock is always hopeful and is in total agreement with Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn when he stated, “The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. ONE WORD OF TRUTH OUTWEIGHS THE WORLD.”

BRING ON THE LIGHT!

Well just by accident Tubularsock discovered that George W. Bush had an attempted assassination plot by a supposed ISIS “terrorist” thwarted by the FBI.

Now Tubularsock is not a big fan of assassinations in general mostly because those who get assassinated are never the assholes that need to be assassinated.

So be that as it may this attempt was really just another one of those Keystone Cops FBI to the rescue bullshit stories for a slow news day.

Really. A save a dog from drowning would be a far more meaningful story and one many would care about but George W. taking a hit for Jesus even if he’ll end up with Lucifer is really only cheap clap trap. Who’d care?

And are you kidding! The FBI aren’t smart enough to be able to spell their own name let alone figure out an assassin plot from so called ISIS!

But, with no surprise, the FBI didn’t do much of anything in terms of deep state detective work here.

No, it is another one of those ISIS suspect calls up an FBI informant and ask for help. And it is the FBI informant that drives the ISIS guy around to check out Bush’s housing and library complex.

The ISIS guy also needed some police uniforms and ID’s for the supposed ISIS assassins who he was going to smuggle in and out through Mexico.

Hell Tubularsock could have assisted in false ID’s and does advertise in TERRORIST R US.
Just for a point of reference if you ever become interested.

Now really, just how dumb are these ISIS left over terrorists anyway?

Who in their right mind would go ON LINE to attempt to plot an assassination using a WhatsApp account? This guy was as dumb as Bush!

Anyway now we are all impressed that the FBI are on duty protecting old whatchamacallit.

And we pay them for this?

DAMN! Tubularsock has come to the conclusion AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN that we as a world society live in an insane asylum.

And the BARS that hold many in …… have to close at 2 AM in the morning in California but can reopen at 5 AM. But Last Call is at 2. Go figure, hell three bottles can hold Tubularsock over for three hours!

And then it becomes breakfast!

The reason for such a stupid “law” goes back to Prohibition which many of you know was the creator of the SpeakEasy. You know, you can’t stop a good thing.

Tubularsock will drink to that! And about anything else as well.

But enough of this foolishness! Tubularsock has bigger fish to fry.

The insane walk the streets! No, Tubularsock isn’t talking about the “crazy-street-people”! In fact, the “crazy-street-people” are speaking far more TRUTH than any pundit on your fucking TV!

No it’s true. Next time you encounter a street screamer STOP (at a distant) and really listen. Tubularsock will bet that you’ll agree with 70 to 80% of what is being spoken!

And if that street screamer looks kind of like Tubularsock the truth level goes up to nearly 95%!

Now Tubularsock guesses that you have noticed that we have returned to NORMAL in the fight with Covid and have gotten back to GUN VIOLENCE. Ahh, home sweet home.

Oh and sure we are all shocked and sickened of this senseless carnage.

It’s way easier to consider it collateral damage. Or that is at least good enough for foreign children WE kill.

So Tubularsock figures that WE AMERICANS have demanded that our country stop sending implements of destruction to Ukraine. After all these sales of armaments are killing droves of innocent people. INCLUDING CHILDREN!

Tubularsock knows Americans are shocked and dismayed with our continued drone killings throughout the world as well. Even though with our drone killings the Pentagon informs us that no civilians are EVER killed. Every one of those children killed is AN ENEMY COMBATANT only short!

NO REALLY, we’ll kill ANYONE “over there”!

So selective outrage from a people that will not stop killing people in other countries only sets the example that killing people is an acceptable form of acting out. And that is promoted in our movies, video games, magazines and news reporting.

So then why is the public always SO SURPRISED and shocked?

Hell, in the United States it is only GETTING BACK TO NORMAL!

So chill out a little and follow the details that are considered “news” in the HuffPost as this headline portrays:

BECAUSE IN THE UNITED STATES WE DEMAND THE TRUTH!

Well enough of all this truth. Tubularsock has holstered his Glock to go off to the market for a bottle of Wild Turkey Rare Bird for breakfast and in America one never knows when a semiautomatic pistol may come in handy. Bon Appétit .

Now Tubularsock will admit that Tubularsock’s first “go-to” is cynicism. It comes from a very long history of watching events of Tubularsock’s fellow humans.

Tubularsock does have to to admit up front, as well, that “GOD” fucked up when he gave his human creations “free will”! Opps.

But then “GRACE” shows her face and calms Tubularsock down with an inkling of compassion for his brothers and sisters. Ok, Tubularsock admits that that compassion does not extend as far as Dick Cheney! Dick is not a human but rather he’s a “Lizzy” as David Icke defines and Tubularsock can confirm. (sure that’s a different story, maybe later.)

There may be some excuse for the stupidity of many people and Tubularsock feels a major cause is that COMMON SENSE is not prevalent in the human species as it once was in former times.

This may be due to the totally mind numbing television followed by the cell phone that is so ubiquitous that it appears to be an actual human body part.

The total control of many by suggestive content and out and out falsehoods perpetrated as truth has cultivated a false knowledge tantamount to propaganda. And that in turn has been used as a control mechanism over the society.

When you couple that with a false moral system of shaming and pointing out “antisocial” behavior as a control mechanism we have all the makings of authoritarianism which is not only accepted but encouraged and promoted by the ruling power structure. Where be it a school system, a religious system, or a governmental system.

TRUTH is always clear, however one has to “FEEL IT” rather than think it and that is something that has been discouraged more and more over human existence. Yet this is not an easy slam dunk. One’s “mind” has been “trained” to THINK and that THINK is the essence of the problem.

Your “training” is done in order for you to “get along” within your society. And as a practical matter, say stopping at the stop sign, is beneficial to all.

However if you are speeding away from a falling boulder you’d hope that your trained thinking would be interrupted with “the feeling” that in this application it would be best to disregard the societal rules and agreements.

And now with all the mixed messaging around Covid one has to be extremely aware just to keep up with the latest questionable information from ANY of those pushing a message.

“Trust the science” BUT DON’T TRUST THE SCIENTISTS!
So now where are you?

The same goes for our foreign policy. American Exceptionalism is touted as if it really was a thing. Stupidity maybe, Exceptionalism NOT!

But we fool ourselves as if it is real.

A country that has lost every war since 1945 is only exceptional at loss.

A country that can’t provide for its homeless population or EVEN MORE important EVEN HAVING a homeless problem in the so called RICHEST Country in the world.

Having the most expensive health system with a health system which is sub-standard when compared to other countries of the world.

And as for education ……….

Living Wages ………..

Voting ………….

ALL A SHAM! And it appears that more and more people are catching on to it.

And to watch Joe Buydone stand up in front of the nation and even say the word democracy while this country is working 24/7 at censorship, keeping Assange in prison for exposing the TRUTH about the murders committed by the U.S. military and not stopping the persecution of Donziger for standing against Chevron and their destruction of Ecuador.

Give Tubularsock a fucking break! And you are going to tell Tubularsock that he is “better” than Drump? How can you tell because they both have their heads up their asses!

FOLLOWING OURSELVES: DON’T LOOK BACK!

Do you believe in Public Education? How about having a community Fire Department?

Do you believe in public owned roads and highways?

Should there be Public Libraries?

Public Parks and playgrounds? Federal National Parks?

Do you believe in the Social Security Program?

ARE YOU A SOCIALIST?

It is strange how “socialism” is defined in “U.S. public speak”.

Because of the fear of the Communism-Hang-Over from the 1950’s, Americans’ have been propagandized to believe that Socialism and Communism are the same thing.

THEY ARE NOT!

Even if Little-Squat-Goldbloom is willing to throw out verbal garbage at Bernie about being a Communist equating it with Socialism ……… Bernie’s retort was damn straight if you were paying attention.

“You say you don’t like socialism, but how is giving $2 trillion to corporations not socialism, just upside down socialism?”

You all remember that bull shit about “welfare queens” sucking off the system and just how appalled the Republican’ts were just a few years back.

But you hear very few Republican’ts and Democraps ever complain about gillions of dollars in government SUBSIDIES being passed out year after year to corporations without much oversight or care. THAT IS SOCIALISM FOR THE RICH!

Oh, just for the fun of it …… “Gosh, where will we get the money to pay for it?”
Remember we are talking about TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS!

Funny how that phrase, “where will we get the money to pay for it” looks different based on who gets the money!

Now these corrupt practices are not a one party monopoly. Don’t forget it was Obummer, under the Democrap’s flag, that bailed out the banks and mortgage brokers after their shady deals with millions of dollars of Federal Funds while leaving the “regular” citizen holding the bag as thousands of them lost their homes.

Thank you so much Barack ………. BUT, “where will we get the money to pay for it”?

And then remember a bribe pay off can happen after an event as well as before.

Less than a year after leaving office Obama received $1.2 million for a series of speeches he made to major Wall Street Firms and Banks he helped bail out. About $400,000. per speech.

Pay off time baby!

And so many people STILL “respect” that scumbag! Fuckkkk! Some people are just not bright! Oh well, in America you are “free” to be stupid. It is just expensive!

But Socialism you are supposed to be AFRAID OF except the socialism for the rich.

So don’t say that Tubularsock didn’t attempted to awaken you.

Tubularsock has concluded that IF the Democraps double-deal Bernie and back Dead-Brain-Biden then the United States will STAY THE COURSE to its own destruction.

It is so uncanny that we are on a very similar trajectory as the Fall of the Roman Empire. (Seriously, check it out yourself)

Rather eery if you ask Tubularsock but it appears we are in lock step.

SO …….. perhaps History DOES repeat itself.

Now just where is that rewind?

LIES WE LIVE BY: AMERICA

The main thing Tubularsock appreciates about OrangeDufus is that he has brought to the light what the United States has been hiding from its own citizens from its founding and this deception was and is to this day the deliberate fabrication that our country REALLY believes in and stands for Justice for all, Freedom for all, and a system that rewards the hard working with a future of prosperity for all.

And as for “moral” leadership? Just when did that EVER exist in our history?

Nope ……. never happened! And YOU know it and your neighbors know it but you push on believing it is true because IF IT IS NOT then who’s running things?

To Tubularsock, it is much like the entire 9/11 facade ……… the story of what occurred is a lie of the highest order but even today when it is brought up people will go the long way around the room to avoid facing the “possibility” that their government lied to them.

WHY? Simple. “If Daddy lies to me then who is in charge and who will PROTECT ME!
Even if the next day he beats me again.

And even more outrageous to Tubularsock and every THINKING person is that “OUR” government LIED us into the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Iraq War to name the short list and the citizens will follow like sheep into the next one and even allow their children to die …………. FOR NOTHING. NOTHING!

It is tiring to watch but the fear and propaganda is fast and furious. And people worry about the fucking Russians ……… go fucking look in the mirror America! YES YOU!

And with all of that we are entering into the 2020 election and if you haven’t noticed, NOTHING HAS CHANGED!

The Roman Bread and Circus in form of the CELL PHONE and social media runs more shit faster than in any other time in the history of the world BUT the population may be dumber. Go figure.

And with G5, when in full operation, we’ll ALL have an ORANGE TAN like the OrangeDufus mixed with fried brains with soy sauce courtesy of Huawei!

And yet the beat goes on …………

And we have the OrangeDufus to thank for the exposing all of this on the obscene level because he is so unfiltered.

He is a TOTAL ASS (not a 1/2 ass) and “thinks” (always a questionable endeavor with him) that what he does is “normal”. A classic deranged mind on steroids.

As opposed to the Step-en-fetch-it Kneegrow, Obummer who talks the smooth jive but was a slave to wall street banks and the military industrial complex and was paid handsomely for bending over and taking it up the ass for the gipper!

And we can’t forget, the total imbecile BabyBush and his fucking CIA daddy for lying us into war with Iraq and destabilizing the entire Middle East using the EVIL PERSONIFIED Prick-Cheney as his lead homey! Fuck them both!

Or how about President Blue Stain Dress Slick Willy and his besty friend Jeffrey Epstein spending all that time on Petalphile Island. Presidential material for sure!

And not last and not least but Tubularsock just has to bring forth head up his ass Alzheimer-Ron. A low time low for presidential standards.

Does any of this point to why the U.S. has been on a rapid decline which may really end with the Dumb-Shit-OrangeDufus?

But what OrangeDufus has done for us is to highlight just how corrupt and dysfunctional the U.S. political establishment is and has been ALL ALONG.

And that is why Bernie is a breath of fresh air and the reason that his CHANGE IN DIRECTION is so frightening the the status quo.

The corporate Democraps will lose their corrupt grip on the system and so will the corrupt Republicant’s!

And you can tell just how scary it is because the Clinton/Obummer wing of the corporate Democraps are willing to let the OrangeDufus win rather than support Bernie!

WHY?

And the reason is as simple and as obvious.

With a Bernie win THEY lose power and the corrupt money they take along the way because they hold that power.

The Republicants are in the same boat!

You see, what we have here is THE CORRUPT DEALINGS of both as well as either/or parties: The Democraps and the Republican’ts and they trade back and forth the power so as to keep their corrupt government contracts and money flow.

Bernie is the monkey wrench in the gears of corruption and THAT is why both parties will do whatever necessary to stop Bernie and save THEIR gravy train. EVEN IF HE WINS!

And in the process ………. FUCK YOU MR. AND MRS. AND MISS AND MS. AND YOUR PRONOUN OF CHOICE AMERICA!

Now don’t get Tubularsock wrong here. Bernie has his own baggage. His total foreign policy record is not to the liking of Tubularsock BUT it is not out of line with what traditional American foreign policy has been …….. complete domination of the world!

No, Bernie’s strength lies in SOCIAL REFORM and fairness within the U.S. boarders.

Medicare4All, the Green New Deal, free public college, universal free child care and always the resounding chorus of “HOW DO WITH PAY FOR THIS?”

We pay for this the exact same way we pay for CONTINUOUS WAR! That’s how.

Ever notice that there is ALWAYS enough to bloat the Pentagon Budget but never enough for child care? Ever wonder why?

Simple answer: there is more profit for the few with WAR than helping the citizen with a chance to live a prosperous life. Think on this! It explains a lot!

NOW.

Even with a Bernie win (if that is even possible in a system of cheats and scoundrels) those who control the power are not going to give up nor are they going to roll over and play dead.

The powerful will stonewall the system BIG-TIME to prevent any changes where they lose power and PROFIT, period!

So IF Bernie does win, it will take those who elected him not to go back to sleep like American voters always do after an election (you know, “let daddy handle it from here”) but to stay active as a mass movement and support the changes needed aggressively.

Like: Shut down the system until it responds to the changes necessary for a free and fair DEMOCRACY!

Stop buying shit until change happens. Remember a loss of profit in this system speaks louder than photos of starving children!

Can this happen? Well, “Tubularsock Has A Dream”, and unlike other dreamers Tubularsock won’t be standing on any motel balconies any time soon.

 

A QUICK SUMMARY WITH LIMITED READING: BUILT FOR AMERICANS!

 

Tubularsock has been busy rebuilding his second-story deck off his top floor corner office in his underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA. (see Bunker Tours)

During the time Tubularsock was attempting to save this illusionary world with common sense knowledge the deck was colluding with its “dry-rot” friends and slowly deteriorating. KA–ZAM! Enter Tubularsock and the mission of rebuild has been accomplished!

So Tubularsock is going to provide a quick review of disconcerting events that have been and are currently happening all around you. No, you are NOT safe.

Enjoy.

 

FOREIGN POLICY

 

ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

 

 

FUN FACT ONE COULDN’T EVEN MAKE UP!

 

And just what would we do without SCANDALS to keep our small American minds trivial and bewildered? So don’t thank Tubularsock now, just wait!

Petrina Ryan-Kleid, an Australian artist living in New York City, painted this oil painting and it was sold at a fundraiser for the New York Academy of Art around 2012. She didn’t know who had acquired her painting and was completely surprised when she was told that Jeffrey Epstein, the alleged child sex trafficker, had her work hanging in his Manhattan home. (Washington Examiner 8/16/19)

 

 

Sure it’s creepy, but so are both Hillary and Bill!

 

Tubularsock could go on but then Tubularsock would miss sitting on his new deck, Bon Voyage Tubularsock!

 

 

 

 

 

 

TUBULARSOCK’S ODE TO
“AN EXTREMELY STABLE GENIUS”

 

I know you must be kidding
I know it can’t be so
I don’t even think it’s funny
Like a looney-toony show
It is rather sad and disruptive
For one to have to know
As if the swamp has risen
And gummed up all the flow
I stand in waders to my chest
Knowing I just must go
And yet my feet are planted
That’s why I’m being slow
The economy is booming
If you believe what you’ve been told
Don’t pay attention to the stores
as they stand in line to fold
And the job rate is as high as it has ever been
But working three jobs to cover one has got to be a sin
And with all the farmers put on welfare to cover tariff loss
With foreclosures and suicides that’s pretty heavy gloss
Oh did I mention factory job loss and infrastructure troubles
Not to worry, not to worry just stay inside your bubble
But hell, our wars are working really fine with record profits made
And if we add a couple more we can cover up the shade
And rest assured with all of this that I have shared between us
NEVER WILL IT BE SOLVED, BY OUR …… “extremely stable genius”!

 

TRUMP NOWHERE WALL— END OF THE LINE

 

Here’s a question for you America First Lovers. As OrangeTweet continues to promote a useless and limited wall to nowhere, Russia, India and Iran are working toward a 7,200-km long lane mixing sea and rail routes essentially linking the Indian Ocean with the Persian Gulf through Iran and Russia and further on down the road, to Europe.

The Japanese are looking toward a revamped Trans-Siberian Railway to improve trade connections with Russia and China. This too will help tie North and South Korea and Vietnam into closer economic ties as well.

There is no invasion here. No military attacks on sovereign countries or military bases being forced on any of them from the outside.

Just maybe that American Imperialism isn’t looking so good and the fact that we are losing on every front may mean that the U.S. is doing something drastically WRONG!

You know, if you really have something beneficial to offer, people will gravitate toward it. Not fight it. They’ll steal it!

Interesting that China and Russia are putting huge sums of money into infrastructure while we keep dumping huge sums of money into military exploits.

And on top of that the “best” plan is an ego-wall for the emperor!

The times have reversed …….. the end of the Han Dynasty in America?

TRUMP & SANTA 2018

HALT, the bull shit train!

Every year for decades now NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, has followed Santa Claus on Christmas Eve as he zips around the world dropping down chimneys delivering presents to GOOD little girls and boys.

Sure he does.

NORAD’s aerospace control includes ensuring air sovereignty and air defense of the airspace of Canada and the United States and is on duty 24/7 three hundred and sixty five days a year EXCEPT September 11, 2001. But hey, who’s counting?

Children are encouraged to call NORAD for information of the location of Santa Claus at any given moment to be told if he’s on track.

And some years some children’s calls are diverted so they also can speak to the President or the First Lady as a political PR stunt.

Michelle Obama answered children’s calls for several years while being First Lady.

And so it goes ………. Melania performed her PR duty just like Michelle and all was well in Christmas land.

And then President Orange-Scrooge took some calls this year as well.

But first he had to close down the government …… HO, HO, HO!

You know, President Orange-Scrooge doesn’t seem to do ANYTHING correctly. Do you know what Tubularsock means?

No?

 

Well let Tubularsock give you this example:

President Orange-Scrooge took a call from a 7 year old child and during the course of the conversation the question of Believing In Santa Claus came up. The child’s response was “yes sir” indicating a belief in the jolly old Claus, when President Orange-Scrooge proceeded with “. . . at 7, it’s marginal, right?”

Now the child didn’t know what marginal meant or what the reference meant so all was good in Christmas land.

But REALLY, a guy who lies ALL THE TIME chooses at that moment to start to “tell the truth” about the existence of Santa Claus …….. REALLY?

Yet there is a much larger point Tubularsock wants you to consider.

And that is the Santa Claus LIE. That should give you pause.

Your parents LIE to you that Santa Claus is REAL!

You can call up your government on a special phone line and be told Santa Claus is REAL!

And think on this ………. THE GOVERNMENT tracks Santa just like they track YOU and that is REAL.

And the President and First Lady tells you Santa Claus is REAL!

AND YOU BELIEVE …………..

So when the times comes when you are told by your parents, your government, and your President and First Lady that Santa Claus is “AN ENEMMY COMBATANT” or an ISIS infiltrator or terrorist sympathizer will you believe THAT as well?

Sure you will!

That is how we got into the Vietnam War, and Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen!
And the citizen’s believed ……….. and that same Santa Lie continues today.

So it would do us all good if President Orange-Scrooge received a huge chunk of “clean-coal” in his Christmas stocking this year.

Maybe he will, if Santa Mueller has anything to say about it!

But unfortunately, OrangeTweet isn’t the only Santa liar out there!
