Wake up, wake up, blah blah

The media is a mouthpiece for the wicked. Blah blah blah.

 

Hollywood is lying to you and are full of nature-defying hypocrisy, blah blah blah.

 

The “blah blah blah” is because I’m sharing this post but I doubt anyone cares, and my sandwich board is getting a bit heavy after 3-ish years.

Also, porn stars are dying, and that’s weird.

But something I’m legit excited about:  Tila Tequila is saved!!! Oh my Lord, that just made my freaking day!! God is REAL

Stop Pretending to Care: the Lessons of Harvey Weinstein

If Gen X was the generation of feigning apathy, this is the generation of…the opposite of that.

Guys….I think it’e safe for us to all stop pretending to care now.

After all, it’s obvious that Hollywood is just pretending to care.  Has pretended.  Will pretend.  They abuse children, they abuse grown ups.  They know about it, make jokes about it.  Then get up on stage and speak passionately with tears about causes.  As though they are all prophets who feel things on a deeper level than the rest of us.

But now there’s no more need to kowtow to their influence.  They were just faking.  I mean, they are actors after all.

You can stop pretending that kneeling means something more that it does, you can stop pretending that NOT kneeling means more than it does, we can all stop pretending the flag means more (or less) than it does.  Just like none of us are probably going to stop watching or enjoying Miramax movies.

Miramax made some of my all time favorites.  Good Will Hunting, No Country for Old Men, Kill Bill, Talented Mr. Ripley, Gone Baby Gone.  I don’t watch much of movies anymore, but I am fond of them.  If and when they come one tv, I’m probably gonna watch them.

Now I could sit here and use plausible deniability.  I could say that I can separate a film’s merit from how it was created or who financed it.  Plausible but not the truth.  The truth is somewhere along the lines of “I don’t care/it doesn’t matter.”  It’s the same apathy that probably caused the environment in Hollywood to thrive like a bacteria.  Bad?  Lazy?  Consumerist?  Perhaps.  Or maybe it’s innocuous.  But it’s at least consistent.  I care about as much about watching these movies as I do about watching their stars get up and tell me what I should think is important.  Not saying it’s right but at least it’s truthful, as in rooted in reality and not hypocrisy.  I at least understand that it is NOT humanly impossible to be BOTH so moved by a plight that you would be stirred to use a public platform to speak out against it, as soooooo many actors have done, AND also be cool with Harvey Weinstein’s nasty tail roaming free.  Looks like quite a few people have been telling fibs.

Now it’s pretending to care that has gotten us so far into all this mess.  I know why you do it, you don’t want to appear callous and unfeeling and let’s face it, just plain unpleasant in front of your fellow man.  And I get it.  But it’s not like while you sent your “thoughts and prayers” post out about Joe Blow So and so, that you secretly knew that he was a serial rapist that murdered his wife.

And yet, these people that are ceremonially lifted up for all of us to admire….that’s what THESE PEOPLE are doing.  Quite a few of them have helped bury the bodies and received big paychecks for their cooperation.  A mixture of tempting and dark incentives which keeps them willing and eager participants.

We can see how the system works, but still the question is “why?”  This Harvey Weinstein scandal is merely a glimpse of what these people’s lives and careers actually are.  It has very little to do with artistic merit and chutzpah and grit and determination… unless of course we’re talking about sex acts.  Not only are these people not qualified to tell us what to care about, these people don’t even seem fit to be considered people who “care” about anything, particularly those who’ve been around long enough to calcify in their silence.

So the logical explanation for every suggestion that comes out of this place is that it is not a conviction but programming.  Not organic but synthetic.  Not created but assigned.  Why?  Well to influence culture, I imagine.  It’s the one good thing it’s been good at.  That’s not to say that wonderful, beautiful artistic expression can’t take place here, or that the feels you felt at that movie are somehow unjustified.  But in ever human institution that thrives there is an underbelly.  And sometimes that underbelly gets so overgrown that it becomes the overbelly.

On the bright side the knowledge that there’s very few things respectable things to admire about the people and goings on in Hollywood, it has inspired me to try my hand at some scripts I’ve only briefly imagined.  Looks like they could really use the competition.

 

 

 

2nd Amendment Under Seige: Part 18

So there was another shooting that happened.  Looks like some people actually lost their lives in this one.  As far as I can tell.  Raising the stakes, switching things up.  The first question anyone asks no matter who you are is “why.”  Why?  Studying this stuff for eight years and I’ll never not have trouble getting into these weirdos brains.  I went straight to the obvious but I thought… “nah.  They can’t still be hammering away at this second amendment.”

But I mean, what else are they gonna do?  Quit?  Has the plan changed?  They gotta get the hearts and minds.  What else do they have to do but focus on the task at hand until they succeed?  Do they have limits?  Standards?  Of course not, that’s hilarious.

I think there’s a reason the Constitution is not taught in schools, and it’s not because it’s long and boring.  Even if it was, we all know there’s plenty of long and boring things being taught in school.

It’s not being taught b/c if you bother to read it you would be able to glean the context of the document, and it’s not the tidbits they feed you.  It’s not all “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  Rules for helping american citizens live the most bitchin’ life they can.  The tone is overwhelmingly about government, at every turn.  How can we keep the government from overstepping their bounds?  Failsafes everywhere.  Checks and balances.  The people the people the people.  Why, b/c people are so smart and noble and fit to lead?  Nope, just the more sets of eyes the better.  Because it wasn’t the people George Washington and them were worried about, it was the GOVERNMENT.

Why the government?  Because History.  Because they literally got done fighting A TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT.  They weren’t foolish enough to believe they could function without a government; even with the worst example having just stared them in the face they didn’t think that.  But it’s clear they thought that accountability among leadership could go a long way in preventing a national meltdown.

Gotta wonder why the media nowadays is trying to get everyone to believe that the government is the best thing in the world, but only when the right people are running it.  But they’re selling you a false brand of realism.  The true context of history is being rewritten or omitted altogether.

The Second Amendment is not about the right to hunt with your weapons.  Why would they make an amendment about that?  That would be a serious waste of a parchment.  “The right to go to the grocery store” it may as well say.  Did they really imagine a future where guns would not be present in some fashion?  Why commit it to paper?  The right to self defense?  Who was arguing that?  It’s not like it was Chicago level muder rates back then that they needed this amendment.  What would cause this to be #2 on the list, right behind the freedom to speak?  The right to bear arms against whom?

AGAINST.  THE.  GOVERNMENT.

ANOTHER FAILSAFE. If the government tries ANYthing funny, they can at least get a mouth full of lead if they tried to put their hands on you and your family.  Yeah you might die, but no one’s gonna have the upper hand here.  No one gets to feed the power beast.  You get a shot, I get a shot.  And there’s more of me than there are of you.  THAT is the point of the second amendment.

Tell me, does that come across at all these days?  No.  especially when they’re trying to tell you the 2nd amendment is outdated.  Can this language get any more sinister?  I mean, this is on the same level of that deranged pastor in South America telling the women that wearing their panties blocked the Holy Spirit.  These people were in the thick of pivotal changes in history and power, and well versed in the events of the recent past.  Yet in all that turmoil, they never wrote with even the intonation that the PEOPLE may one day become a big big problem.

So why in the days of global peace treaties, the UN, an era of technology where the world has seemed the smallest it ever has, are we being warned about the PEOPLE being a threat to our collective safety?

One thing studying conspiracy has taught me is this:  If it doesn’t make sense, if it doesn’t add up, it’s probably a deception.  And there’s some preeeeetty big things in our world right now that just don’t add up.

I’m pretty much done talking.  Here’s some smart people making videos.

 

 

Bittersweet Sixteen: 9/11

That headline was going to be a loooot more inflammatory but I decided against it.

You know, I was going to let this ridiculous event go uncommemorated, I mean how many ways/times can a conspiracy buff go on and on about 9/11.  Official story, conflicting reports, collapsing buildings, dead witnesses, structural engineering, burning metals blah blah blah.

But Black Child put out a pretty cool video on it that I wasn’t expecting and I just had to share.  Focused on a little bit of everything this time, primarily on the means rather than motivation.

Happy Birthday, you stupid, unplausible story you.  Sixteen already!  Time does indeed fly.  Can’t wait to completely understand what the hizzy actually happened and why.  Hopefully I’ll be dead by then so I won’t have to waste any energy on emotional outrage.

 

P.S. Here’s another interesting video documenting the mundane moments of daytime tv leading up to the main event.  See if you can spot all the creepy coincidences.  I’m up to….four.

 

 

I have a Girl Crush

No, I’m not talking about Tiffany Haddish, I’m talking about Candace Owens.

Educated, profoundly articulate, (YES “articulate,” it is the perfect word and I can’t help that), passionate, and absolutely right.  A true SJW.  This girl could easily become an historical African American figure.

Don’t mind Alex, he’s just freaking out like I am.

 

Well, I love her, so.  Just thought you should know.
