LOST VALUES — SING ALONG!

Remember that old Pete Seeger folk song,

Where have all the values gone?
Long time passing

Where have all the values gone?
Long time ago

Where have all the values gone?
We have dumped them every one

When will we ever learn?
When will we ever learn?

OR WAS THAT FLOWERS?

Whatever!

Unless you have be living in a cave in Siberia you may have noticed that the values that the United States once upheld (even if they were not perfect) have pretty much been eliminated.

You remember, things like lying, cheating, torture, conflict of interest, caring for others, killing, the rule of law, taking responsibility for your actions, democracy …….. you know stuff like that.

WE HAVE NO LEADERS IN THE UNITED STATES THAT HAVE ANY OF THOSE VALUES. LET ALONE A LEADER TO STAND UP FOR THEM!

Oh sure, before they are elected they spout those values and after they are elected they spout those values but THEY NEVER SPROUT those values once they are in office. NEVER!

And when false values are the watchword of the day we really start to see for ourselves the downfall and breakup of our society.

Because if we, as a society, don’t have strong values to promote and uphold, then we have NOTHING.

If people don’t have honor within them the chances for them to be an honorable person is diminished.

And that is where we stand right now, with “one foot over the line” or was that “one toke”? Sweet Jesus.

Whatever!

So, let Tubularsock run you through an easy one, TORTURE.

THERE IS NO EXCUSE TO EVER USE TORTURE ON ANIMALS OR HUMANS EVER, PERIOD. This has to be a core value because anything less leaves you with no honor of self, period.

And yet the current President of the United States believes that it “works” and has stated that he believes in it.

And now we see that the Congress of the United States believes in torture, as well, thereby they have approved a Torturer to head the CIA, “Bloody Gina”.

And of course whenever Torture is mentioned fucking Dick Cheney is brought out of his lair to expound upon its virtues.

And Cheney, loves the virtues of torture so much that he loves to be beaten by Lynn in their dungeon to bring about sexual arousal. “Beat me, beat me Lynn!”

And just to show you that Tubularsock isn’t some liberal goody-goody, Tubularsock’s fantasy has always been meeting Dick Cheney in some dark alleyway and in one rapid movement slicing his chest cavity open with a rusty Boy Scout knife and reaching in and pulling out his beating bloody stolen heart and throwing it into a pig pen to be consumed! They’ll eat anything!

But hey, won’t happen because Tubularsock has taken an anger management seminar.

AND the fact that the statistical chances of Tubularsock encountering Dick Cheney in a dark alleyway is “ZERO” so there you go …….. math wins out!

Of course, “Bloody Gina” would not say that torture was MORALLY WRONG because she ran a torture site and should be in jail as a war criminal rather than made the head of the CIA!

But the United States has lost that value, morality.

I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW!

Another value we have lost is TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR ACTIONS. Have you noticed that?

“Bloody Gina” was the chief of staff for Jose Rodriguez, the director of the CIA National Clandestine Service. She was responsible for drafting a cable ordering the shredding of videotapes depicting torture sessions, despite a court order staying their destruction.

That action is against the law but not only did she “follow orders” as any good German SS solider would do BUT THE ONLY ACTION taken by any governmental body for a blatant illegal action was to promote her to CIA Director.

So with that you can throw out the RULE OF LAW as another lost value.

And remember if the RULE OF LAW principle was really practiced then George, Dick, Don, Condo, Killery, Dump, Obummer would ALL be in prison today for war crimes.

However, that value has been tossed aside.

Well, for the ruling class anyway. But don’t you jaywalk! You’ll be in the clinker!

The list goes on and on but the values are lost to our nation and won’t be coming back any time soon. The cracks in the Republic are rapidly expanding and Donald Trump is no more to blame than the American population for sitting by and selling out our principles.

As for Tubularsock, you’ll find him,
“sittin’ on the dock of the Bay, wasting time”

WHATEVER!

NO REAL CHANGE!

Just so all of you that are upset because “As The World Turns” soap opera gave us all President Elect Tweet as President of the United States, there is STILL regular old world sanity to draw from to provide solace.

Nothing really has changed in the realm of extreme hypocrisy coming out of the U.S.

Our very own State Department is trained to maintain a very polished form of hypocrisy. And you may even marvel just how shiny it appears. Tubularsock personally recommends Bar Keepers Friend cleaner to keep down soap scum buildup. And dare say the Department of State has its full share of it while attempting to make America squeaky clean.

tube-clean

Just this week United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power who is pretty high on the “scum-as-you-are-list” accused 13 Syrian commanders and prison officials of responsibility for attacks on cities, residential areas and civilian infrastructure as well as acts of torture in Syria.

Now there is nothing new in that and the same old bad guys Assad and Russia were behind it all. And the fact that the U.S. is bombing Syria without any permission to be there and Russia was asked to come help Syria from being overthrown by the U.S. all seems to be lost on Samantha.

Powers may do well to read the definition of war crimes and one of those definitions centers around countries attacking other countries unprovoked. Now just who should be tried for that in Syria?

But here is the fun part for Tubularsock which makes Samantha such a riot!

She had the nerve to say aloud in front of others that, “The United States also knows where torture allegedly takes place in Syria.”

Well Samantha, the U.S. out of all the players in this conflict WOULD KNOW WHERE THE TORTURE TAKES PLACE IN SYRIA. Do you think it could be in the same locations of the “black-sites” the CIA used to torture under George W. Bush?

Funny that George W. Bush isn’t anyplace on this list you are handing out. Perhaps a bureaucratic oversight.

Now one has to wonder how we have gotten here. A few years back Assad was cooperating with Bush’s CIA to conduct torture for the U.S. and now we are wanting to try them for bombing “our side”.  And people think this Trump Thing is weird.

By now my fellow readers you know that when you are dealing with the U.S. hypocrisy it is always compounded. So the other aspect of this entire Samantha-in-fantasy-land is the International Criminal Court.

The detailed allegations seemed to be aimed at laying the groundwork for future war crimes prosecutions and could be the Obama administration’s 11th hour attempt to hold the Syrian government accountable for alleged atrocities while at the same time not noticing the American mirror image in this entire mess.

And here is the funny part, “. . . some time ago the United States backed out of being any part of the ICC because in signing into the agreement would make the U.S. responsible for its own actions and could be indicted by the ICC for crimes against humanity!

So Samantha Power is setting Syria up for crimes against humanity in a set up where the United States is immune!

AND PEOPLE THINK TRUMP IS POMPOUS?

COULD IT BE AN AMERICAN TRAIT?

Tube heading booksWHO’S ON FIRST?
Ok ……….. President Elect Tweet isn’t Laural and Hardy……… YET!
But looking at his minions …… Holy Shit, as the Pope would say.

But what does he stand for?

So far President Elect Tweet has changed his position on torture because he talked with Four Star General James N. Mattis and Mattis said, “(He) found more value in building trust and rewarding cooperation with terrorism suspects: “‘Give me a pack of cigarettes and a couple of beers, and I’ll do better.’”(NY Times)

On the link between human activity and climate change Tweet now says, “I think there is some connectivity … it depends on how much.” Now on the surface that doesn’t seem like much of a change but it is a MAJOR change from “. . . climate change was(is) a hoax fabricated by the Chinese”.

 

tube-environoment

President-elect Donald Tweet will not pursue an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. Or anything else about the Clintons. This is a rather significant change of position from, “I will say this: Hillary Clinton has to go to jail, ok ? She has to go to jail, phony hit job. She’s guilty as hell.”

And then there’s OBAMACARE …….. from get rid of it to making legal changes made to President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

AND NOW Tweet is distancing himself from the alt-right movement as its white supremacist members claim his election as a boon for their agenda.
“I disavow and condemn them,” Tweet said Tuesday (11/22/16) during a wide-ranging interview with staff members of The New York Times.

AND THE WALL? Well, it may have to be scaled back a bit and just not be as long or high or maybe not at all.

And all this is where Tubularsock see some possibility of “hope and change” with President Elect Tweet ….. yes it is slight ……. very slight but a crack enough for possibly some “light” to get in.

We shall see ……… proceed but stay low because the ricochet may be risky.

But really, there is something refreshing about a person that can change direction when new information is presented and not be stopped by being wrong and refuse to change out of looking bad. On the contrary, President Elect Tweet views himself as NEVER WRONG about anything. Whatever position he holds that minute is CORRECT until it is not and then the exact opposite may be CORRECT. But DURING THE TIME he holds a position he is RIGHT!

And not only RIGHT but the GREATEST RIGHT you have ever witnessed bar none!

Now it can’t get better than that ………..

PIVOT

Ok, ok ……….

We’re not friends. Step-and-Fetch-It-Obama the out going puppet of the FWRM (fat, white, rich, men) and Tubularsock belong to different clubs.

So when Barack contacted Tubularsock to “take a meeting” with him, well ………

It only meant one thing …… Barack needed a fall guy and Biden couldn’t do it because he may be headed for a post in Killary’s Administration.

tube-obama-not-right

You may not recall but Tubularsock early in Barack’s Administration held the cabinet post of Secretary of the Inferior and was extremely popular.

Don’t recall: News Before It Happens …. Secretary of the Inferior, Missing!

Anyway, the bottom line is that Barack has asked Tubularsock not to bring up the fact that:

Guantanamo is still open for business.

The war in Afghanistan still continues.

The war in Iraq still continues.

The war in Libya still continues.

And Barack has added to that

The war in Syria AND

The war in Yemen AND

Starting in 2014 Barack carried out 674 military missions across Africa. And by
2016, you do the math!

And then add the special ops raids, the drone strikes, the “training missions” and the African Continent is well covered with American killers.

And all this has been accomplished by a Nobel Peace Prize Winner!

WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT THE SWEDES?***

*** Political tactical note: this is called a pivot. A pivot is when one shifts the focus from the point of the discussion to a false narrative. (This was a Tubularsock teaching moment)

THE ONLY PROBLEM

The only problem with the Presidential debate is that there is nothing to debate.

When a debate is conducted WITHIN THE LIE there are no possible solutions because there ARE NO intended solutions.

THE LIE IS the purpose and driving principle and that is why there is no intended solution.

All these Presidential “debates” are conducted within a closed box of false ideas and thereby provide an endless loop which appears to be confronted with different plans and solutions but because the entire premises is a lie all this process provides is endless delusion.

And that is why it “feels” like you have heard it all before … you have.

Because the lie is on going.

Now what does Tubularsock mean when he says LIE?

The easiest way to explain it is using a HUGE CHOCOLATE BAR. Who get the big chunks and who get the small chunks and who get the crumbs?

Within this huge chocolate bar there are a handful of nuts. In this campaign cycle if you haven’t identified the “nuts” yet, set this blog post aside and go shopping.

tube-crime-pays

For those remaining, let Tubularsock continue.

You see the entire bubble that Americans live within is the lie that has been perpetrated on us from birth …….. we are NOT “good people” as Hillary pontificated last night.

“Good People” don’t allow their leaders to burn people to death with napalm or blow people to pieces with cluster bombs or drop two atomic bombs on men, women, and children and rain death down upon other human beings with drones!

“Good people” don’t fall asleep to the fact that this nation was founded on the mass genocide of the Indigenous Peoples of North America and thereby stealing their land and destroying their culture.

“Good People” don’t allow slavery and degradation of people.

“Good People” don’t allow torture and solitary confinement of people!

And “good people” don’t continue to support endless wars of domination of OTHER PEOPLE’S natural resources in order to sustain a false lifestyle of wealth and prosperity.

BUT WE HAVE AND WE DO! And that is not a sign of “good people”!

We are a very selfish and self centered people and with all of this wealth around us we are still a desperate and unhappy people.

Drug abuse and the murder of each other doesn’t convey a Happy People.

Being absorbed into the latest electronic device helps sustain a barrier to real relationships and thereby intensify isolation from “other” which doesn’t convey a Happy People.

AND FEAR ……. fear appears to be the cornerstone of our past and current existence and doesn’t convey a Happy People.
Now all of this self-centeredness keeps us focused on attempting to hold onto the “stuff” that we have because along with everything else we have be taught that who we are is defined by what we’ve got!

And that may be the underpinning of the entire LIE.

YOU ARE NOT WHAT YOU’VE GOT!

You are a single independent being with enormous creative abilities.
And you are free ………….

Start from that premise and your world will change!

A LIE ONLY WORKS IF YOU BELIEVE IT!

Tubularsock has called this press conference today to say that Ted Cruz’s adventures into extramarital affairs
or Donald Trump’s romps with a variety of younger women are  JUST SHOCKING to Tubularsock.

Even Hillary, it has been rumored, has stepped out of line when it comes to marital fidelity.

And Bernie would have, it’s assumed, except Jane would have “cleaned-his-plow” among other things if he had done so!

In fact, if you look at the history of SEX in and around the White House, even if you exclude the Secret Service’s prostitutes, you would find that it is prolific.

So in Tubularsock’s continued effort to have a transparent Presidential Campaign and a complete open door policy in Tubularsock’s future Presidency, Tubularsock has to report to the American citizens that  THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER articles about Tubularsock are “GARBAGE”!

Tubularsock knows that Donald Trump in his continued jealousy over Tubularsock’s large hands and perfect hair has been having his publisher friends at THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER publish these disgusting attacks directed at Tubularsock!

 

Tube NE Scandal

THESE STORIES ARE NOT TRUE! THEY ARE LYING FOR TRUMP! Plain and simple!

Now, it is true that in Tubularsock’s early days he was involved with June Cleaver. But only in the afternoons.

Tube and Cleaver

And Tubularsock had a three-way with Annette and a guy named Mickey.

Tube and annette

“Those were the days, my friend ……… we thought they’d never end.”

But this was the foolishness of youth that we all know so well!

 

AND IT IS TRUE THAT:

Tubularsock did talk positions with Hillary.

Tube:Hillary

And bear relationships with Sarah.

Tube:Sarah

And the size of Brought Worst with Merkel.

tube:merkle

And, oh sure ……… torture, bondage, and leather with Condi.

 

Tube:Condi

But these were ALL PROFESSIONAL RELATIONSHIPS!

So Tubularsock stands clear, honest and open. Just as he’d be as President.

Now, TED CRUZ ……… where do we go from here? Few Presidents have been able to keep it in their pants!

We as Americans already have to worry that if Hillary gets elected we’ll have to see the White House turned into

Bill Clinton’s Brothel! And you guys in Tubularsock Land hadn’t even thought of that to worry about! Or have you?
