The most dangerous person in Washington


Name: Tulsi Gabbard

Born: April 12, 1981 in American Samoa.

Rank: Major, United States Army

Combat Tours: Two in Iraq

Current Position: Democratic Congressman from Hawaii

 

Gabbard is one of the few people in Congress that is neither a draft-dodger, cushy military job holder (Army Lawyer-Army Journalist) of military avoider.

Opposes the Trans-pacific partnership, Free Trade and wants to restore Glass-Steagall.

Opposes continued US intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq. Supports India’s prime minister Modi and calls for discontinued relationship with the terrorist state of Pakistan, that held Osama bin Laden.

Opposes Neocons, big banks, big media and the civilian military complex.

Good looking, young, athletic, brave, articulate, doesn’t suck up to a husband for “power” and will debate the pants off of anybody.

Make no mistake, BOTH parties hate Gabbard.

If she ran for President, she’d win all 50 states by a landslide we haven’t seen since Reagan.

She is Washington’s biggest threat. Go Tulsi.

Share this to say happy birthday to Tulsi. #tulsigabbard #goarmy #semperfi

WILL PRESIDENT TRUMP REINSTATE THE DRAFT?

News flash: The Army needs 220,000 men.

This is hardly news in the Army and Marines. We have been sending the same men in for tour after tour. They’re burned out, ill equipped and overused.

Fact: Almost everything we did in Iraq, we were unprepared for.

We didn’t have enough flak jackets and our Humvee’s did not have the right armor for terrorist attacks. Our supply was not up to snuff. Our supply lines were not sufficient. Our troops lived on Red Bull.

None of this was the Army’s fault.

They were prepared for a totally different war than they were handed, but worse, we simply did not and do not have the proper army to occupy a hostile country. We simply do not have enough troops to simultaneously fight in Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Egypt and the Ukraine.

Putin is a smart guy. He’s trying to draw the US into a war in Syria that requires occupation. If we do that, he’s going to use that to ignite political tensions in Egypt, a country that’s already on the edge of a razor.

Dirty little secret?

Violence in Egypt means oil tankers can’t go through the Suez Canal. Do that, and NATO is done.

Game set match.

 

 

 

Ioskeha and Tawiscara: The forces of Good and Evil

Ioskeha and Tawiscara are complex figures in native American myth.

They are first brother’s  They are also polar opposites, Ioskeha the creator, representing life and growth and his brother Tawiscara, representing death, night and winter. Finally, like many Gods they are forces of nature and are depicted as good and evil.

In native American myth, these two forces are in a state of constant flux, battling each other to a sort of detente. In both western and eastern mythology, from Cain and Abel, to Vishnu, to the devil on one shoulder and the angel on the other, they are universal.

In a recent study, over half of Harvard’s graduates have admitted to cheating.

Harvard also grade inflates. If you hire someone from the words most prestigious colleges, you have a 50% chance of getting a cheater with bogus grades. It’s not intelligence that rules the world, or hard work. It’s deception but the key is to not get caught. The devil on one shoulder and the angel on the other, battling your psyche for control of your actions.

The Celts had a goddess of plague, disease and sorcery called Cailleach.

She is the Goddess of winter and death and brings snow until Brigit, the goddess of fire arrives to turn her into stone. To the the Celts (or Druids) winter was death. Trees and plants would “come to life” with the fires of Brigit in the spring.

The early Celts intertwined Jesus with their myth and created Camelot…

the perfect kingdom, destroyed by sin, Guinevere’s lust for Lancelot. In the end, Arthur killed his own son to rid his kingdom of evil and good, the Grail, was lost forever.

My second novel in the Trifthauser series is named after the Greek goddess of evil, Eris, or as I name it in Latin, Discordia, or discord.

Her Greek opposite is Harmonia, or Concordia in the Latin.  It’s not men or enemies that Trifthauser fights. It’s evil. A battle he can never win, but can only contain. Evil never dies, it just changes names.

It been recognized since the dawn of time that good and evil exist together in men. The battle between the gods was a battle of forces within a person. The desire to create discord (or Discordia) is always and will always be with us. These forces manifest in wars, economic battles and political upheavals. Like in the atom, the world is dying and being reborn every nano second.

It’s a story as old as man.

Trump responds to fake gas attack with fake missile attack

Chances of Assad using chemical weapons against his own people… zero.

Chance that Trump would be forced to act as if Assad used chemical weapons… 100%.

This is the world we live in. Fake news, bogus intelligence and phony media reactions are used to divert attention.

According to “sources” the US launched 59 “laser guided” missiles onto the airbase at Homs killing 9 including 4 children.

Who ever heard of an airbase manned by 5 adults and 4 toddlers?

$100 million worth of missiles took out 6 MIG 23’s and nobody was at the base? In fact, drone footage shows the base to be desolate.

Are our reporters that stupid that they actually buy this story?

Fact: They’ll buy anything that gets viewers.  The story is that Trump was sending a strong signal to Putin. Move outside the US and that signal is the US will only attack tiny countries that can’t fight back.

This was a smart move on Trump’s part.

Even CNN said he was Presidential. On that, CNN was 100% on the money. This is what the US president has become. A clown.

Are humans becoming Cyborgs?

The next robot will be you

Is it all just an episode of the Truman Show?

A group of people huddled around a bunch of bushes in Central park, cell phone camera’s filming every detail, whispering, pointing. What was it… a murder? Visions of Law and Order flashed through my head… Where was Jerry Orbach?

It was a squirrel… A fucking squirrel.

Our distant relatives were the real environmentalists

Human’s evolved in a world where interaction with nature was all encompassing. Their enemies were wolves, grizzly bears and snakes. If their body couldn’t fend off a disease, they died. They spent their days in constant experimentation. They had to know what plants they could eat and how to cure and store game they had to either chase down or trick into a trap. In other words, nature was always on their minds.

In the days of the Druids, memory was a treasured skill. Why? Because paper was expensive and too few people were literate. Everything they knew was in memory. Their cultures were nothing but memory enhancements. Events like harvest festivals, Christmas and Easter, that evolved before the birth of Jesus, were structured around preparation of food, sharing and basic survival.

The new information brain craves data.

Intelligence today is an app. Since the brain evolved to be totally, obsessively ensconced in nature, with nature out of the picture, what’s left? Data. Nobody knows this better than advertisers and big government. Now that they’ve figured out HOW the buttons work, all that’s left is pushing them.

Seymour Hersh once said, “todays congress is 20 IQ points lower than in the 70’s.” How do so many dumb people get elected? They represent the people. What’s the point of being smart when all you have to do is ape back what people already believe. And where do these beliefs come from? Take three guesses… they’ll probably all be correct.

Starbucks is the new mother nature.

Go by any Starbucks and what do you see? People with huge caffeine, sugar and fat drinks staring at data acquisition devices. It’s a legal version of Elvis Presley’s “jolts”, where his doctors would load him up with amphetamines and he would wolf down hamburgers.

Nowhere was this more evident than the last election.

The parties spent over a billion dollars trying to convince us that two rich, immoral, pathological liars were presidential. The garbage these two windbags vomited out was staggering not only in it’s pointless dishonesty, but in the shameless way the corporate sugar and caffeine media rallied behind them. If it’s any consolation to Americans, it’s going on all over the world.

It’s hard to even imagine how this ends.

Beliefs are reinforced by finding new reasons to believe old beliefs. The neurons create protective shells to ward out “disagreement.” It literally becomes impossible to think outside the box. The brain goes from being an organ of intuition, experimentation and discovery to a prison of irrelevant beliefs, marketing campaigns, political slogans and bigotry. An organ that evolved with nature to be one with nature, every minute of every day now gropes for the nature it needs only to be given sugar, salt, fat and sex.

An organ that evolved to be wrong and change has become an organ that is never wrong, because the customer is never wrong and aren’t we all, in one way, shape or form, custoners? One can Google anything.

So, we are amazed when we see a squirrel, while at night our streets are filled with sewer rats.

Take away a child’s phone and they will contemplate suicide. Are we becoming Cyborgs… or are we already cyborgs?

Was Steve Jobs the greatest entrepreneur of all time?

How many jobs did Steve Jobs create?

Technically, Apple has 116,000 employees, but how many jobs has Jobs really created?

My youngest daughter is 24. She’s gone through her entire life and has never owned an electronic gadget NOT made by Apple. I-pod, I-pod mini, I-phone, MacBook, MacBook Pro, I-pad.

In her current job, she uses her I-phone to schedule nurses and her MacBook Pro to run analyses on best practices for labor utilization. My other daughter uses her MacBook Pro to run computer simulations on farmlands to maximize fertilizer applications, irrigation and electricity prices. There are hundreds of thousands of people like my daughters.

A charity I once ran gave an I-Pad to a developmentally disabled child…

that had a free app that created a reading program that allowed him to read three years before his doctors said he ever would.

In the year 2000, the stock market crashed. Like a few select other people, I knew it was going to happen, especially in tech. The reason was, the hardware and internet speeds were not up to what online retailers needed. But AFTER that crash, internet speeds went up and the benefit of all that funny money pissed away by internet wizards started to pay off. E-commerce exploded.

The same thing is happening now. Money is FLOODING into research…

but this time, it’s not just tech. It’s going into medicine, communications, advertising, self-driving cars, self-sailing boats, animation, music, publishing, green housing, lab grown meat…a list so long, one could spend an entire day talking about it.

The time lag is probably a decade…

but make no mistake, these innovations will hit the world with the impact of a runaway train. Steven Jobs is the Walt Disney of his time. In fact, were it not for Jobs, Disney wouldn’t be anywhere near the company it is today. Disney bought his company Pixar.

How many jobs did Jobs create.

If you use the word create, 116,000. If you use the word spark, it probably goes into the hundreds of millions.

Was he the greatest eentrepreneur of all time?

Yup!
