On The Campaign Pulpit

November 8th, 2011

I want a country that you could leave freely but you don’t want to. I want a country that wants you in it so much that they take the time to find you and make sure you’ve got what you need. I want a country where the laws fall through the cracks so the citizens don’t.

I believe in the basic principle that a good nation builds good workers that make good products that everybody can be proud of. In return for investing in our young Americans, that nation then taxes you a bit to invest in the next set of young Americans and to care for the well being of those who have invested their twenties through sixties in the American Dream.

Rap is Supposed to Be Angry

November 2nd, 2011

This is a throw away rap for entertainment.

Name me “terrorist” because I spit explosives.
My attitude can’t fly it’s so corrosive.
The patriot act doesn’t cover me
Because I pledge allegience to nothing peaceful.

I wear jeans and I soldiered on.
But I don’t have that job so the smoulders on.
Everywhere I look at Americans it’s face to palm.
It’d be a fine island if you fuckers weren’t on it.

I’m not the Be attitude in your bonnet.
I’m the future caravan. Get your white ass on it.
The bandwagon out the sand when you face the truth.
I’m Keyser Soze then I vanish. Poof!

Rub the bottle and I pop up.
It’s three of your wishes then I’m fed up.
You better sooth the spirit when you’re walking near it.
If you don’t fear it, you’ll get your cranium cleared out.

Explode in your brain like I’m rocket science.
You let me in so go get compliant.
Make a nice tight seal so you can keep this thought.
The future got bought up. I’m getting you caught up.

I’m at the top in my pin stripe get right
Everything I do to you invites your spitefullness.
I smile and clap cause you’re so delightful
when you’re pissed like that it’s like you’re wearing diapers.

The way your wisdom works it’s quite the same.
You claim history but it’s a future’s game.
You didn’t recall the facts of the world at all.
It’s a jab from my left but you see a southpaw.

Pack up last call. Drinking off your glass jaw.
Is that all, packing in the cab yelling “asshole”.
Thinking my freeze will thaw like I’m a TV dinner
Try to feed on me and get apprehended.

Who Needs 10 Commandments Anyway

November 2nd, 2011

Pen Jillette has his 10 Commandments up from his new book. I take issue with what I’m seeing as naivete. So, blog post!

1. The highest ideals are human intelligence, creativity and love. Respect these above all.

2. Do not put things or even ideas above other human beings. (Let’s scream at each other about Kindle versus iPad, solar versus nuclear, Republican versus Libertarian, Garth Brooks versus Sun Ra— but when your house is on fire, I’ll be there to help.)

3. Say what you mean, even when talking to yourself. (What used to be an oath to (G)od is now quite simply respecting yourself.)

4. Put aside some time to rest and think. (If you’re religious, that might be the Sabbath; if you’re a Vegas magician, that’ll be the day with the lowest grosses.)

5. Be there for your family. Love your parents, your partner, and your children. (Love is deeper than honor, and parents matter, but so do spouse and children.)

6. Respect and protect all human life. (Many believe that “Thou shalt not kill” only refers to people in the same tribe. I say it’s all human life.)

7. Keep your promises. (If you can’t be sexually exclusive to your spouse, don’t make that deal.)

8. Don’t steal. (This includes magic tricks and jokes — you know who you are!)

9. Don’t lie. (You know, unless you’re doing magic tricks and it’s part of your job. Does that make it OK for politicians, too?)

10. Don’t waste too much time wishing, hoping, and being envious; it’ll make you bugnutty.

What Have You Done For the Future Lately

October 26th, 2011

A lot of people look at their life and wonder why more hasn’t worked out for them. There is a legitimate grouping of people who really couldn’t have done better, for whom the cards were stacked for this result or likely worse. So it is for the rest of us that I ask the question. What have you done for the future lately?

Simplicity

October 18th, 2011

I have a particularly unique combination of values. Take my word on that for now and I’ll try and prove it. What will surprise many people is that I understand a way in which religion, Republican economic policies, homeopathy, laissez-faire capitalism, traditionalism, green energy, and gold based currency can seem attractive. These things all start and stay pretty simple.

Another Example of my Rhymes

October 17th, 2011

I’m like you can’t stop this
juggernaut shit.
Do the impossible and gridlock this
I come at you from all possible angles
from the alleyways
from the rooftops swinging pots
And you’ll need an army
just to feel safe
I digest a motherfucker to sewage.
I bring you down to my level
in the sewers
because we compost better together
while I make more manure.

I’m like Hercules only two times the gods blood.
Plus I got a vial of the dead ones I slaughtered.
Zeus thinks he’s the father alma mater
shouldn’t bother
I’m persistence times time
eroding till you topple.

Prometheus said
you shouldn’t fuck with him bro
But you didn’t think
to listen to him though.
now you’re on your knees
with a mental hymnal
trying to forget
that I’m swinging the killing blow.

I’m the reason the reaper’s grim.
Once I’m on the scene, nobody worries about him.
Please oh please
they beg to be the deceased
because it’s hard to live a lie
when you’ve been victim to me.
It’s hard to have the pride
After you weren’t prepared.
I’m one with the darkness
That’s why you’ve been scared.

Tame My Discontent.

October 17th, 2011

This weekend was a rare one in the fact that local politicians were canvasing the neighborhood and it seemed like Dawn of the Dead only it was afternoon and the zombies were local political hopefuls.  The Sheriff hopeful leaves a three fold brochure outlining his experience.  He is, in fact, very experienced having started in the Marine Corp and earning several awards and recognitions as a police officer.  And then I notice the NRA affiliation which is not too surprising as I feel there is a relationship between service people and guns.  Further down, something about supporting local charities and faith based stuff.  OMG, faith based stuff.

The Sea Pig Rhyme

October 10th, 2011

She swoons at babies and puppies
has beautiful uglies
Likes flowers and jewelry
things that glitter all lovely
Understands manly
if you’re talking ’bout rugby
she can take rough
but mostly she’s snuggly

but this woman
can you believe it
she doesn’t like sea pigs
and this woman
can you believe it
she doesn’t like arachnids
and even though
there are more of every single
Kind of insect
She just isn’t willing
to love popular things
just yet.

X-men: Skunk Class

October 8th, 2011

I just watched one of the lamest comic book movies in awhile X-Men: First Class. The movie managed to bug me in several ways so I figured I’d just make a list and see how far I got.

Repost: High School Principal Bullies Gay Student Activist

October 7th, 2011

Reposted from addictinginfo.org

It’s worth reading from addictinginfo but I thought I’d pimp the story here. In Sequoyah High School in Madisonville, Tennessee, the principal Maurice Moser flipped his shit with Chris Sigler’s interest in starting a Gay Straight Alliance. Click the link for more information.

Way to go Moser. Yet another example of things wrong with our educational system. Namely, the inability to deal with a new point of view using rational means.
