programs for the current theater performance

When people go to a play the producers often hand out programs telling who the actors are, the roles being played, the musicians, bits about composers and other information designed to help with understanding the performance, context and enhancing enjoyment of the show. In this pair of videos I do that for the current political-socio-economic theater. I cover a lot of turf and include graphics that help clarify the big picture. My receptors for deceit went on full alert when Biden was named the nominee for President. A known, proven pedophile, satanist, conduit of massive illicit financial transactions world-wide, blatantly corrupt, clearly in rapid decline from dementia … The moment I said to myself, “The Republicans could not have […]

dropping out

I sent this to family who are not operating on the same page as I am. I think you will understand as you read on. I had difficulty sleeping last night after our family ZOOM meeting. I love you guys too much to watch the show dispassionately. Masks, social distancing, and the next parts of the show are destroying your beautiful lives, families and communities for no good reason. Normal is not in our future. Worse is coming. I wish more people were psychologically, physically and spiritually prepared for the new world order. Family and community will be crucial. COVID, masks, lockdowns and “social distancing” are a deliberately implemented psychological operation to make that as difficult as possible. Knowledge and […]

If the other guy is declared POTUS, it is WAR!

All of the news sources that Biden/Harris fans see, hear and read declare their team as victors. They know nothing of reprogrammed voting machines, flood of questionable (putting it gently) ballots, media, tech giant and other influences over the election and reporting thereof. Anyone mentioning such things is speaking in tongues, irrational, and criminally delusional. They ALL KNOW THESE TO BE FACTS. All of the news sources that Trump fans see, hear and read declare their team as victors and the other side as corrupt criminals of the highest order. A perfect mirror image of their arch enemies. Both sides will be *SHOCKED* if they lose. Both sides will go to war if they lose. You do understand this means […]

Enjoy the fall

Readers here know I was counting down the days to the election fiasco that I figured as TSHTF kickoff. I do not believe the trajectory has changed at all, or the timing changed by much. As philosophers and poets often admonish I am now treating every [somewhat normal] day as a gift. I am resigned to many things and prepared to fight for others. The Serenity Prayer is prominently displayed on my studio wall as these times call for a constant reminder. SERENITY to accept what I cannot change COURAGE to change what I can WISDOM to know the difference I still see the election theater objective as building unquestioning loyal following for Messiah Trump and violent opposition that […]

operating on Farmer Time

Today is the biannual celebration of control our overlords wield over details of our lives. They remind us twice a year that even little things are within their power. For absolutely NO GOOD REASON, they send us scurrying around our houses, shops and vehicles resetting every clock and timer therein. It is just a little jab, not like they are starving or poisoning us … with that poke anyway. I am approaching the mark where half of my life will have been spent self-employed. When you do not report for work at a time fixed by others, the annoyance level of biannual clock manipulations is reduced. I get up when I am awake and go to bed when I am […]

The Vaccine is The Show – all else is distraction or preparatory

This is the most important video you will ever watch in your life. Doctor Carrie Madej and Richie from Boston know full well the risks they take producing and publishing this information, but know it would be much worse for them and us if they do not. These two epitomize Fearless and Knowledge; devote themselves and their lives to helping others understand The Big Picture. What do these troubling things we are witnessing today all have in common? What is the goal? What is the end game? Please give this video 10 minutes – I promise you will want to watch to the end – and share in every way you can. Both Carrie and Richie are fully aware of […]

tale of two flocks

The Marxists, socialists, participation trophy crowd successfully took over USofA’s centralized education system. Built on a foundation of global excellence in science and mathematics, their “progressive” changes converted it to a Sub-Sahara feel-good missionary school. Dumbed-down degrees are handed out to illiterates who majored in the new oral tradition of “How do you feel about that?”, as opposed to “What is the correct answer?”. Today’s intelligent, ambitious teens and twenties enter the workforce via entrepreneurship, trade schools or apprenticeships. The square-cap crowd know less REAL STUFF upon college graduation than most of us did in eighth grade. But they are eminently employable. Soros and his corporate sponsor friends are happy to pay each of them $25 untaxed cash per […]

visualize liberty

Imagine what this country would look like if we had begun electing Libertarians 14 years ago. I gave Idaho my best shot, which may not have been all that much in the end, but Idahoans really did have a choice with serious beneficial potential that year. I tripped over this show recently, realizing that was a good debate and presentation of ideas that would have made very real differences. In 2006 I did some traveling around the state as the Libertarian candidate for Idaho governor, a relatively tiny bit of fund-raising, produced some campaign literature, and dressed myself for mass-market appeal. – He cleans up nicely – ๐Ÿ˜‰ When the League of Women Voters announced the upcoming state-wide broadcast of […]

Happy Independence Day

Renaming it “4th of July” is not merely laziness. Of course it is the 4th on your calendar, but it is a celebration representing some brave fighters’ Declaration of Independence from a powerful parasitic class of people who had demonstrated a monopoly on violence and oppression. The patriots won a round. The ruling elite had to reorganize. It took a hundred years and another major military war that the freedom fighters lost… not by much, mind you, but they did lose. A long methodical decline in liberty followed from then to now. I just ask you today to spend a little time thinking about independence from oppression, the risks those rebels took and the benefits they won for many subsequent […]

dimbulb savings time

You would have expected us to be smarter than that, or have our politicians under better control by now. Nope. A Tulsa publisher looks at it: ‘Spring forward’ has lots of haters, so why has daylight saving time been so hard to change? Bitterroot Bugle looks at it: My post three years ago. daylight savings Sure is a shame about the hour I am losing this weekend. It was the one I intended to spend worshiping our government. While there is even a .gov website describing circadian rhythms, other than the governments of Arizona and Hawaii, the rest of the governments within the USofA seem to be clueless about it. I’ll put it in simple terms even a legislator can […]

Libertarian Party of Ravalli County

I had to work to track down the Libertarian Party shortly after I arrived in the Boise area. It was a handful of guys who spent $6,000 Idaho state income tax checkoff money every year on burgers, brews, pizzas and inconsequential travel. Over the next two years I wrested control from them, gambled my savings on an outstanding state convention that came within a few dollars of repaying my loan. The Libertarian Party of Idaho quickly grew to 85 people with a lot of visible activity. Now I am the interim chair of the Ravalli County Libertarian Party. Neither I nor the chairman who handed me the baton have come up with invigorating ideas or activities, but I do not […]

don’t bring me no bad news

My daughter’s 8th grade class put on the play WIZ. I loved it… likely helped that my little girl who had done so poorly academically shone in dedication to learn and perform two leading roles… doing a good job of building sets, costumes, memorizing lines, actions and tunes very well. A dramatic change inspired by performing arts. I was completely taken with their song “Don’t Give Me No Bad News”. Tear them up, Grammar Nazis That tune has come to my mind many times in the ensuing 20+ years. Click the PLAY arrow on the right for an audio-only version. You can listen to it while you read on. While not knowing what is going on, or what is […]
