Are You Better Than Me? WOC

Posted in POB Audio, Poems, Poems, Rhymes, Riddles, Psychology, Song Lyrics & Analysis, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 4, 2019 by Drogo

World of Competition, are you better than me?

Are you smarter? 

Are better looking? 

Do you sound better?

Are you better smelling?

Are you better skilled at life?

Do you deserve to procreate, while I just masturbate?

Were you born to win and me to lose??

Are you taller, bigger, and stronger???

Are you smaller, thinner, and faster???

 

This is the World of Competition,

Where we compete to be better than the other.

Your rank on the bloody charts of success,

Will tell us all who is better than the rest.

 

You stare at me and then dismiss me,

As being lesser than yourself

You don’t want to advance me,

At the cost of your own profit.

The price of your winning is my loss.

 

There ain’t no room for cooperation,

We cannot collaborate when the rules will not allow.

There can be no equality, when rates are based on quality.

Can you assess my monetary worth?

How much is my fucking soul after birth?

 

In this world you are either taking or giving,

If you are not good enough to take what is yours,

Then you must give what others have earned.

Or are you better because you give?

Either way, one of us is better.

 

Are you better at History?

Are you better at Math?

Are you better at Languages?

Do you spell like a mother-fucker?

Are you better at the Sciences?

Are you better at the Arts? 

 

Are you nicer?

Are you more sane?

Are you wealthier?

Can you buy and sell me?

 

Have you rigged the fight before we even begin?

What will you charge to allow me to win?

It ain’t no false dichotomy

Are you better than me?

BETTER THAN ME!!!!

Notes about this project lyric poetry and music style: my influences are Helmet, Biohazard, Faith No More, Hawkwind, Savatage, Bad Brains and other DC punk bands… the lyrics are about existentialist angst regarding social pressure to compete… it is about the human problem of wanting to compare things as dualities, instead of the more organic magic mushroom holistic view. the poem came to me in the morning, and i had to make the song to express the inner rage of individuals in society. it took me about an hour, but it might be one of my best songs because i was finally able to capture the problems between individuality and collective, and capitalist vs communist. also our attempts at trying to rate intelligence, skill, beauty. Special thanks the Judas Priest Cover band. I used my cell phone and 3 tracks on Soundtrap.

Clouds Are Real

mega cloud 2bmega cloud 1cmega cloud 1a

We swim in oceans of emotions, and we sail in relation-ships;

no more voting for corporate pricks;

we think and feel, and vote for those with appeal;

because clouds are real, clouds are real, yeah clouds are real.

Corporate Neo-Fascist Politics

Posted in Military, news, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2019 by Drogo

Neo-liberals and Neo-conservatives leaders are basically Neo-fascists by default; using corporations to control government and deny civil rights and promote war. Voters have been tricked to vote for the 2-party neo-fascist system, just as they were in Germany before WW2, so shaming Trump or Hillary voters is not useful in the reconditioning process. Post WW2 Germany is an example of how voter shaming can back-fire. The fall of the Berlin Wall was popular because of how punishing people for bad leaders can be, without giving them reasons to change ideology.

Fascism does not believe in real democracy, and in manifestos it has claimed this is because democracy never works. Neo-fascism differs from conventional Fascism because it hides behind political-correctness (polite manners), and avoids using bold terms like racism or ‘Nazi’. Neo-fascists instead prefer slogans like ‘New World Order’, ‘Mission Accomplished’, and ‘Yes We Can!’. Neo-fascists believe nothing should stand in the way of Capitalist business, not even problems of peace or pollution.

Currently peace and environmental activists are being attacked by the Hillary DNC, who accuses them of being treasonous foreign agents of Russia. The New Red Scare is being used by Neo-liberals to attack both Trump (who functions as a Neo-conservative, despite his fake populist platitudes) and far-left leaders. This tactic will totally break the voter base for the DNC, by severing the far-left completely from ever voting for their candidates again; because they would rather have Trump win again (because he is pro-business), if they cannot get their candidates to win (Hillary & Biden recently).

The scary part of all this is that their Neo-fascist propaganda has worked, for two reasons. One reason is because most voters do not have time to actually study political claims. The other reason is that DNC party-line voters believe that the lesser of two evils is better, and that Hillary would not have done as many bad things as Trump is doing. There is much truth to that claim that Trump is a piece of shit, and should never have been made president. The bizarre fact that Trump was made president by the electoral college (Hillary won the popular vote), has made some of us wonder what is really going on. The Neo-liberal DNC wants us to believe we should blame Jill Stein, and anyone that would want to run as a third-party candidate (like Nader or Perot were blamed before). So their propaganda against peace and environmental activist leaders has landed, because it is assumed that of the choice between Trump and Hillary, one of them is better. Neo-fascists do not want us thinking that both elite candidates of the 2-party system are committing crimes against humanity and our US Constitution, because then their gig is up. They would rather one of the two win, or none at all.

Their ‘One Thousand Points of Light’ (Bush Sr.) CIA strategy is having a constant war of terror, to never allow real democracy of direct vote to have any power. They will not even allow us to have ranked-choice voting in our Republic. The New Red Scare continues, which ironically fuels our state communist MIC (Military Industrial Complex) with our taxes.

If Biden (or another DNC pick) wins, the Hillary DNC will increase attacks on us using the New Red Scare, which could lead to more Congressional Hearings and prison for Sanders, Tulsi, and Stein voters (who are all branded as either Socialist or Russian by the Neo-fascists). Nationalist corporate fascists are scared that voters might want real democracy. Ecological development and peaceful negotiations are more patriotic than selling out to big business to pollute and bomb the planet; do not let them fool us again! Bernie Sanders may come the closest to uniting the entire Left with the Centrist WORKING CLASS Right (blue collar, not white collar), on issues like Health Care and Worker Rights (Jobs).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GND Tree Planting Plans

Posted in jobs, Organic Development, Politics, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2019 by Drogo

Thousands of forest acres have been lost in most counties nationwide in recent decades. The Green New Deal (GND) will replant trees. Currently in Frederick County there are local groups replanting 55 acres, to replace the 420 lost every year, but it is not enough. Bernie’s GND has several national strategies which would plant more.

1. Adding 20 million new jobs to Public Land Corps, CCC, & ACE

The Public Land Corps (PLC) is a work and education program for young people that is run by the United States land management agencies in association with state conservation and service corps. The objective is the rehabilitation and restoration of public land resources and infrastructure.

American Conservation Experience (ACE) has emerged as a national leader in recruiting, coordinating, and training volunteers to undertake practical environmental restoration projects in America’s national parks, forests, wildlife refuges and other public lands.

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was a voluntary public work relief program that operated from 1933 to 1942 in the United States for unemployed, unmarried men ages 17–28, as part of FDR’s New Deal. The CCC built heavy engineering projects for National and State parks, often using large stone masonry.

2. Supporting small family farms through RRA. Organic homestead farms have more trees and wildlife per acre than corporate farms because they are more ecological than profit driven, due to self interest and practicality. Small farms are more interested in sustaining communities and wildlife, and large farms are more interested in clearing land for increasing crop production profit, without needing to conserve natural resources for other uses.

3. Adding $40 billion to the CJRF. The Climate Justice Resilience Fund is a grant-making initiative dedicated to helping women, youth, and indigenous peoples create and share their own solutions for resilience. CJRF seeks to foster climate-resilient land management by communities; including agricultural practices, protecting public land and resource rights, and ensuring sustained access to wild foods.

4. Adding $200 billion to the eastern UN GCF. The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is a fund established within the framework of the UN-CCC as an operating entity of the Financial Mechanism to assist developing countries in adaptation and mitigation practices to counter climate change. The GCF is based in Incheon, South Korea. Currently humanitarians and environmentalists warn that the deal is not sufficient in its current scope.

Area 51 – US Secret X-Base

Posted in Commercial Corporations, History, Military, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on October 23, 2019 by Drogo

Area 51 is part of the Nevada Test Site area, run by Top-Secret Military and Industrial Corporations. The facilities use scientists and engineers to work on weapons and ‘ufo’ vehicles. ‘U.F.O.’ simply means ‘unidentified flying object’. Some speculate that aliens are responsible for many ufos; but even if only humans are operating ufos (even just the ones that have been documented by the military and scientific civilians), Area 51 and related operations would still be worth studying.

The New Red Scare – DNC 2019

Posted in Commercial Corporations, Legal / Laws, news, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 22, 2019 by Drogo

The new Red Scare in America is not being pushed by the Republicans who did so last time (headed by McCarthy). The new foreign agent propaganda was spread by Hillary’s DNC. The corporate lies are aimed at environmentalists and peace-activists that would never vote for corporate sell-outs, and would rather vote Green Party, Independent, or stay home in protest. Jill Stein visited Russia along with many other politicians, because politicians often travel to other countries and try to network with allies and even meet with enemies; but the DNC started a rumor that somehow Stein had more Russian power than the Clintons who did millions of dollars worth of deals with Russians. The DNC propaganda story is that somehow through vague propaganda, without actually hacking votes, Russia won the election for Trump and also controls the Green Party. Hillary Clinton actually tried again to push this narrative herself on CNN, by smearing Tulsi Gabbard (veteran active duty military officer and Congressional Representative for Hawaii) and Jill Stein as ‘Russian assets’ (or agents). There is less evidence to even make those claims, than there would be evidence to charge Clinton with foreign influence. Part of the reason to accuse others, can be to distract attention from the truth about Clinton and DNC crimes. Russia is not even claiming to be Communist anymore (as if it ever was, and not totalitarian state capitalism), it is Capitalist like us, and does business with rich plutocrats like the Clintons and Trumps all the time.

Since Hillary’s DNC basically declared propaganda war on progressives, it is only fair that we defend ourselves and our “purity tests” aka ethics. Does anyone out there have a memory of at least one person reading one of Hillary Clinton’s emails (it may have been with other DNC emails like Podesta’s) that said she wanted to push the “Russia story” long before her DNC actually did? It may have said something like “Perhaps we should use the ‘Russia narrative’ against them”, suggesting that they push propaganda about Russia before they started smearing Jill Stein, and before Russia-Gate. I have had one other person say they remember hearing that too, but have not heard reference about since after the new Red Scare by the DNC began. If you know anything about her early reference to their propaganda plan, please comment below.

To be clear about far-left progressive politics, we are clearly not funded by foreign governments more than Corporate Centrists are (who do international business deals constantly); and without our voices and boycotts of the 2-party system there would be no environmental or peace activist action in politics. Without us the USA would become more militant and the overton window would shift further far-right into neo-nazi authoritarianism (totalitarian with a much bigger budget than Russia combined with the rest of the world). The CIA and all law enforcement in the USA tends to allow far-right terrorism historically, from nazis before and after WW2 to the KKK and mass shooters; policy makers justify this because white power nationalism fights against marxism and worker unions. I am personally unaware of any foreign money influencing us, but all evidence points in the other direction that those with more money and power are corrupted and supporting terrorism to fund totalitarianism (perpetual MIC war).

Jill Stein has defended herself against these attacks by submitting evidence to Congress. Stein even saved her receipts and submitted them to the feds, so her trip was basically like how Dad and I visited Russia, as a self-funded trip to represent and learn; as many travelers do. After years of studying Green Party politics there is no evidence that our leaders on the far-left are more influenced by foreigners than Corporate politicians are, in fact the evidence shows the opposite. The Clintons and Trumps have met with Putin and other dictators like Trump far more due to their power and influence on the world stage, and corporate centrists are paid off by international business money regularly.

‘The Young Turks’ (TYT) (alternative left-wing media company) has been promoting their ‘Wolf Pack’ group to get money out of politics in the DNC, because lobbyists have allowed politicians to be more of an actual terror threat to citizens, both foreign and domestic. The TYT ‘Justice Democrats’ group has supported progressive grass-roots politicians like Bernie Sanders (Democratic-Socialist), AOC, and many others. Overall, 40 percent of voters are Democrats, 29 percent are Republicans, and 28 percent are independents, according to a report from the ‘University of Virginia’s Center for Politics’ (2018). It would not be so hard for a Democrat to win if the DNC didn’t betray their voter base, because voters would turn out in over-whelming numbers and win most races. Why? Because there are millions more registered Democrats, than Republicans. A popular candidate attracts independents too. It is the job of the politician to win US over by representing us.

The New Red Scare is a weak ploy, considering actual budgets and motives.

For every one Russian spy there are 100 US agents ready to interrogate, torture, and tell you who you are allowed to vote for in the 2-party Corporate System.

Corporate politicians meet with Putin all the time btw.

How many times has Hillary met with Putin? Is Putin a Hillary puppet??

 

 

Pokeberry Plant

Posted in Crafts, Food & Drink, Nature Studies, Organic Gardens, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 20, 2019 by Drogo

Pokeberry plant leaves are edible when young, but most toxic when mature (like rhubarb). Many people are allergic to the toxins so all parts of the plant are poisonous to them. The roots are the most toxic. The leaves are edible when young after being boiled 3x in water changes, or for those of us not allergic to poke frying in oil or butter is fine. Documented cases are common for people allergic to poke, but there are people like me who have been around poke their whole lives, handled the plants often, and squished the berries for stain and ink without any problems beyond our skin getting stained crimson for a day or two. I have heard of someone getting a skin rash from poke (like poison ivy), as they are allergic to touching it; but I am not. My mother had us paint and print with poke berry ink on water-color paper as children, with no problems.

Poke berries are not edible, but when used with vinegar and salt (and other blends) can make ink for writing pens and printing on paper. Pokeberry ink is not archival because it fades over time on paper, even when not exposed to sunlight everyday. However pokeberry ink is a interesting local organic native alternative to industrial toxic inks, but modern use is still experimental although the chemicals in it are known. In gardens they are beautiful in full maturity, with their ornate ‘goblin’ fruits.

“Indians and early settlers used the root in poultices and certain drugs for skin diseases and rheumatism.” – Michael Owen, ISU

The late 19th century herbal, the ‘King’s American Dispensatory’, describes various folk medical uses that led individuals to ingest pokeberry products. Modern commercial medical companies (big pharma) snubs remedies that are found commonly, for obvious pharmaceutical sales reasons, and so serious testing might be hard to study at length with funding for the purposes of common good, for free but cautious home use.

CAUTION:  Many people are allergic to poke toxins, so limit your exposure to the plant to reduce possible effects. There are many medical claims that eating poke roots, berries, or anything from the adult plant can kill in sufficient quantities.

For safer printing for all people, perhaps black-berries or mul-berries or huckle-berries are better? For long-term organic industrial printing, using a weed like poke which is not used for human food would make more sense for sustainability though. [Link Process for making any type of berry ink]
